    This page is a compilation of pretty much everything you need to know about Syn's Server in order to join, play, and have a good time.

    First and foremost: Syn’s Server Rules. Nobody likes reading a big list of rules, but we have to make them known so that we can refer to them when they are broken in-game.
    1. Admin rule is final. We generally follow a Warn-Kick-Ban system for dealing with rule-breakers. However, there are times when that system just doesn’t make sense or one of the set rules doesn’t apply to the situation. If you find yourself in one of these situations, listen to the staff. We have a very large community and want to make the game as enjoyable as possible for as many people as possible, and will not hesitate to remove anyone causing too much of a disturbance.
    2. Offenses that will get you banned instantly with no warning: It’s a shame we have to have this list at all, but there are some people who just do not understand that these are bad things:
      A) Excessive foul language or a tone that is offensive to other players.
      B) Client modifications that give you an unfair advantage over other players, such as the X-Ray mod, or Flyhacking/Speedhacking. Minimap mods ARE allowed.
      C) Griefing someone’s structure. We can check who did it, and it is not tolerated.
    3. An extension to part C of that last rule: What is griefing? We define griefing as intentionally defacing someone’s structure, or abusive player-versus-player engagements. PvP is globally OFF on Syn's Server. However there are still ways to kill people. This is not allowed. This is bug abuse. We can rollback griefing, but we cannot restore lost items. Do not engage a griefer even in self-defense if at all possible. PvP is able to be set ON inside player-defined residences, and is allowed there only.
    4. You are responsible for your account. No Exceptions. We get a lot of ban appeals saying, “I left the computer logged in and my little brother/sister/cousin/estranged nephew got on it and broke all those blocks, not me!” Griefing is griefing and we have no way of knowing if you are telling the truth. It’s your account, be responsible with it if you are going to get on Syn's Server.
    5. Do not advertise. We don’t allow advertising on our server. It’s unethical and rude to start trying to pull people away by advertising that way. It will result in a ban from the server so don’t do it.
    Reporting a rule-breaker: If you see someone breaking one of these rules, you can report them by typing /modreq to create a ticket that the staff can check at their earliest convenience.

    Appealing a ban: If you received a ban and believe it was unjustified, you can appeal it using the appeal template on the forums, in the correct subsection.
