    Universal Rules

    All rules that are listed apply to all ranks on the NirvanaMC Network. The following rules apply to the NirvanaMC Minecraft Servers, Discord and Forums. All of the chat rules apply to any of our chat systems we have, an example of this would be private message.

    All users are to read and follow the rules to avoid the punishment of kick or ban. If for any reason a rule needs to be changed or modified, the NirvanaMC Administration has the right to do so.

    Respect All Staff Members

    All decisions made by the NirvanaMC Staff Team are considered final. Please do not argue with a judgment made by one of our staff members. If you feel a member of staff is abusing you or others, please contact the Administration Team on the forums via private message to @Narnia, @Ashxun or @Larcei.

    You are Responsible for your own Security

    Any breach made by a family, friend or random stranger is your responsibility. The NirvanaMC Network does not take responsibility for your security on your Minecraft accounts or forum account. If a rule is broken under an account, that account will be punished. No exceptions.

    Advertising is not Permitted

    Advertising on the NirvanaMC Network or Forums will result in immediate temporary or permanent ban from the Network & Forums. This includes sharing an IP or Website/Domain in public chat, messaging system, pet names, etc…
    Advertising your YouTube Channel and or Twitch is not allowed if you do not have the YouTuber Rank on the NirvanaMC Server.
    If you spam it or annoy other players it will result in a mute so please if a staff member asks you to stop, listen to him/her.
    Announcing anything that relates to a party for games and or coordination is allowed, though please do not break the rules of Spam & Capital Letters.

    Do not Impersonate or “Pretend to be Someone"

    Impersonating is a serious offense on the NirvanaMC Network, as we do not take this lightly. If you witness someone impersonating a YouTuber or Staff Member, please contact a Moderator. Impersonating staff on the forums is not allowed, Do not trick someone to think you are able to do something that you can’t.

    Moderators have the red [Mod] Tag, Admins have the dark red [Admin] Tag, and Managers have the gold [Manager] tag.

    Chain of command:



    Do not Spam or use Excessive Capital Letters

    Spam of any type is not permitted. The minimal requirement for to be classified as spam includes, but is not restricted to the posting of same or similar messages consecutively, a repetitive number of times within the space of a few or more seconds. Messages comprising of all or a large number of caps is also considered spam. Spam on the Forums will not be tolerated, spamming posts or threads will either get you suspended or banned from the forums.

    We do not allow sexual content

    Any form of sexual content will result in a form of punishment. We aim for our players to feel comfortable with the topics that are spoken among the server.

    Respect All Users

    RAU - Respect All Users, we are all human and we all like the NirvanaMC Network. Please be respectful and kind to others while playing games, or even lounging in lobbies. Forum respect will be enforced, do not write something that will be considered rude, it does hurt someone’s feelings in the end. Discrimination of any kind is not tolerated and will result in a ban. We will NOT allow the following:

    · Racism
    · Sexism
    · Ageism
    · Remarks about Disabilities
    · Religion
    · Or any other kinds of discrimination

    When typing in public chat's (discord and minecraft) please use the English language. We accept everyone, from all countries around the world, but due to the fact that our staff members are English speakers, other languages are extremely hard to moderate. We hope you can respect this rule.

    * If you are constantly harassing (bullying), spamming, making a scene (general annoyance) or being derogatory in any way towards players or staff, you will be permanently removed from the server in the form of a permanent ban. This is a game and a place for players to enjoy themselves, not your personal stomping ground to bully others.

    Respect Youtubers

    We always look towards YouTubers as public figures, and we know that many of them often play on the network, and some of them are our friends as well. Therefore, we should treat them nicely and let them play on even grounds just like any normal player. We do not ask you to stop playing with/against them, but try to not discourage them from playing by constantly putting a target on YouTubers and defeating them as a group(note that many of these people aren’t professional players). It is also worth noting that the publicity of the network depends on the content being streamed/uploaded by them, and constantly trying to crush them competitively will discourage them from streaming or uploading further content on the server.

    Requirement for YouTube rank

    If you have a popular YouTube channel and are interested in having the [YT] rank on the NirvanaMC server you will need to have:

    · At least 1k subscribers on YouTube
    · At least one video on the NirvanaMC Server or in the progress of making one
    · Your channel has to be active.

    If your channel has less than 1k subscribers don't lose hope. All ranks are based on judgment, so lets say you have 5k subscribers, but your content isn't up to our expectations then you will not receive the rank. Same as with if you have less than 1k subscribers and you have great content you may achieve the rank.

    Offensive Skins are not Permitted

    Skins that are offensive or sexually explicit are not permitted on the NirvanaMC Network. All who have a skin of such nature will be warned at first, but further consequences may follow if use of the skin is continued.

    Offensive Usernames are not Permitted

    Usernames that are considered offensive such as, sexual topics or bad words are forbidden. If you don't follow that rule, even after being asked to remove it, you will be permanently banned from the server.

    Client Modifications/Hacks are Strictly Forbidden

    Use of hacked clients is strictly forbidden on the NirvanaMC Network. If you’re caught using hacked clients, it will result in a temporary ban or permanent ban from the NirvanaMC Network.

    Types of modifications that are allowed:

    · Mods that are purely for aesthetic purposes, eg: Shaders Mods
    · Mods that provide enhancement to the way Minecraft performs (FPS etc), eg: Optifine.
    · Rei's Minimap and Toggle Sprint are allowed. (As long as you hide players and hostile mobs from your map.)
    · Mods that change your gamma and allow brightness other than that found in normal minecraft.

    Types of modifications that are not allowed:

    · Mods that provide enhanced player movement, eg: Smart Movement Mod.
    · Mods that enhance chat eg: Fancy Chat
    · Mods that allow flight, 'speed hacks', and extended reach, eg Nodus Client.
    · Mods that provide additional data to the player that would otherwise not be seen, eg: Radar Chest Mods, X-Ray.
    · Mods that exploit the AFK prevention system by constantly pinging player movement, eg: Macros and 'Rave Mods'.
    · Macro Mods and Auto-Clickers are strictly prohibited.

    Cheating or Exploiting will get you Banned!
    This includes during the minigames or Cubed Chaos. Cheating includes team killing or griefing. Exploiting a glitch or bug in minigames or Cubed Chaos is not allowed and will get you in trouble, please report all bugs on the forums so we can fix it. Report all bugs relating to the NirvanaMC Network via the forums.

    Cubed Chaos Rules

    General Server Rules
    All normal rules apply. Do not disrespect players, do not cheat in anyway, respect staff and youtubers.

    Don’t ask staff for ANYTHING

    Do not ask staff for items, do not ask for TPs, nor asking them to do /time set 0, and do not ask for /toggledownfall. Any request these will be instantly denied. Spamming might cause you to be muted.

    No griefing or stealing
    Griefing or stealing of any kind is not allowed. Think twice before you grief, there is a block logging and a restoring plugin installed. Along with you getting rolled back, you might also be banned from NirvanaMC. So be courteous and don’t grief others!

    Do not trap or kill other players
    Yes, this is survival. But this is not PVP survival. Just normal survival to have fun with. Do not kill other players with Anvils, sand, fire, lava, etc… PVP zones are an exception to this rule. Do not trap players using sign protection and other types of block protection.Trapping or killing players and being caught could wind up you getting banned from NirvanaMC.

    Do not exploit by any means
    Do not use dupe exploits/x-ray exploits. They are considered cheating and cheating on the NirvanaMC Network is strictly forbidden. Think twice before using an exploit as it will cause you to be banned from NirvanaMC.

    Use common sense
    Do not build anything offensive/inappropriate

    Building giant genitalia, swastika, or making profane words out of blocks is not allowed. Writing profane/inappropriate things on signs is also not allowed. Being caught making these will result in a ban from NirvanaMC.

    Be aware of your surroundings
    Do not build within a 100 block radius of another player unless you have gotten their permission to do so. This is just a common courtesy rule.


    Be kind! Do not build massive mob farms. These steals spawns from other players. Every chicken, cow, pig, etc. that you have on your island, takes away from another player.

    Griefing is not allowed nor is it against the rules
    Due to players only being able to grief if they are added to an island, inviting another player to your island is at your own risk.

    However if an extensive grief has happened and proof can be provided, the player can be dealt with.

    Discord Rules

    Rules that are listed above are still enforced in the Discord server, do not think that only the rules below apply to you on Discord. Please read the rules below that relate to the NirvanaMC Discord.

    · Playing loud music or sound files is forbidden, unless approved by all users in the channel.
    · Voice recording on Discord without user agreement or staff agreement is considered forbidden in all events.
    · In some countries/states it is considered illegal to record voice without the user’s permission. (We do not take responsibility for your actions.)
    · Trolling, Screaming, or acting childish will not be tolerated.
    · Switching Channels continuously is considered spam, don’t do it.
    · Do not annoy or bother the staff members too much!

    Failure to follow Discord Rules will result in a kick, then a ban. If you have history of rule breaking you will be permanently banned.

    *Can also result in a ban on the server itself if the admins decide to.

    Avatar Guidelines

    · Photos must not contain any nudity or sexual reference, meaning no fake anime girl or real photos that fall under the category of pornography.

    · Photos must not contain any reference to drugs or alcohol, we do not want to advertise any product that might be offensive or inappropriate on the NirvanaMC Website.

    · Photos must not encourage violence, racism, or any misconduct. Please keep in mind that any sign that relates to these categories are not allowed.

    · Photos or Selfies you find on the Internet are not allowed to be uploaded as your avatar. Meaning you cannot impersonate other people on here by posting a fake photo of “yourself”.

    Signature Guidelines


    You are expected to comply with the following guidelines. All users who do not follow the guidelines will be dealt as such stated at the bottom of this post.

    What are Spoilers?

    A tutorial on the spoiler tag can be found here.

    What can you hyperlink?
    Signatures cannot have any links in them that contain harmful cyber trash such as but not limited to viruses, harmful cookies or account stealers (phishing). You ARE allowed to advertise your social media pages, as long as it follows our network rules and other guidelines. Any signatures with animated images (.gif) or videos that contain flashing lights are not allowed, as these can cause seizures and can be harmful to other users. Dragon Cave or similar sites that contain clickable pets, internets or karma are allowed.

    Videos in spoilers
    Signatures can only contain videos if they are wrapped in spoiler tags. Videos must be appropriate for all audiences and follow our network rules and guidelines regardless of whether or not it is in a spoiler.

    Common courtesy
    Please remember that every user that has signatures enabled can see yours. This means to use the space wisely knowing that it will not be only you who sees it. Having too many animations or wasting space with list will annoy others. Use your signature to let people know who you are, or to share social media with them. Many people love to show off achievements too. Attacking a person or featuring a user in your signature should only be done with their permission. We don't want signature wars on our server.

    What will happen if the guidelines are not followed?
    Most of the time, if a user does not follow these guidelines, they will receive a message from a staff member letting them know, and asking them to change it. This is mainly re-sizing issues or an image that affects other users.

    If you have any questions please reach out to us at [email protected] ! Thanks for reading!
