    We ask that when you do play on the Minecart you follow these rules and regulations. This way we can make sure the community is a safer environment for members on our network. While rules aren't any fun we do ask that you follow them as it's what keeps our network more organized along with being an enjoyable network for all users. We pay straight from the pocket of what Minecart makes, and in return, we ask that you follow our rules and regulations. Thank you for understanding, and we hope you enjoy playing on our network!

    Common sense: Make sure to use common sense on our network, and ask yourself if you feel what you're about to do is responsible, and no consequences will come along with it. This will apply to all of the following sections below, and if you do feel you've been unfairly banned then post an appeal here. ex: If you're hesitating, and concerned don't do it!

  3. Update: 30/04/17

    Clarification:
    Forum rule #2 punishment has been updated from 2 warning points to 3 warning points (2 week forum tempban).

    We welcome opinions, mature debates and constructive criticism. However, the Administration team will now be taking a zero tolerance approach to members or staff members being subject to malicious abuse/insults. This also includes if the server itself receives extreme levels of disrespect.
