Factions Specific Rules
If you are a factions player, make sure to read its gamemode specific rules by clicking the link below. Click Me.
A single group of people cannot win multiple prizes or hold multiple top 5-10 positions in the same competitions. This means for example that if your team is winning #1 on island top, you cannot boost alt accounts, friends or anybody else for that matter that is also competing for one of the prizes. Giving stuff to anyone to help them get in a position to receive a prize is forbidden and will be punished as boosting (both parties will be penalized).
Punishment: 1st time: disqualification of the whole team for the season. 2nd time: permanent disqualification of the team.
The use of any non-standard Minecraft clients that give an unfair advantage over other players is considered hacking. Examples include, but are not limited to, kill aura, anti-knockback, speed boosts, attack range increases, quick bow firing, and auto-aim. This also includes any auto scripts and disallowed mods. Any game changing clients found in a user’s Minecraft version folder will constitute a ban; if caught with game changing clients on your computer, you will be banned. Failure to comply with a staff member’s request for a hack check will result in banishment from the server.
Punishment: 1st time: permanent ban.
The intentional use of mistakes, errors, or loopholes in any of the server plugins, plugin configurations, or Minecraft itself. Glitching includes, but is not limited to, getting through the bedrock and on top of the Nether, flying in fly-disabled zones, using Enderpearls to access closed off areas of the server, and misusing server features to access closed off areas of the server. Closed off areas of the serv er are any places that a user, staff or otherwise, has intentionally placed blocks to prevent another user from entering. This includes, but is not limited to, plots, bases, under-development sections of the server, mine walls, and faction bases, as well as improper use of a server feature to gain an drastic advantage over players that would otherwise not gain such advantage.

Staff takes the security and safety of users very seriously and anyone threatening to DDoS will be assumed to be serious and capable of carrying out their threats. Nobody should joke about DDoS threats, or any other threats for that matter. Staff will NOT assume any given user is joking and WILL treat the threat seriously and act accordingly.
Punishment: 1st time: 7 day ban, 2nd time: permanent ban. Depending on the severity, the ban could be permanent after the first threat.

The rule regarding scamming is that there is no rule against scamming. You are responsible for your own items, plot, money, etc. Staff are not responsible for returning any items lost through scamming, are not obligated to aid in trades to prevent scamming, and will not punish any player found or caught scamming. Agreeing to donate on behalf of another player in exchange for in-game items/money is not supported by the Momento Network staff and staff strongly suggest you NOT engage in such trades. Server staff are not allowed to scam players, in any way, shape, or form, and doing so will result in punitive action on a case-by-case nature; scamming staff is not against the rules and any staff that is scammed and uses staff permissions to return scammed items will receive punitive action.

Mute evasion is classified as using any of the aforementioned means to circumvent a mute, temporary or otherwise.
