Rules & Info

Server Rules

I intend this server for a chill, family friendly crowd – these are general rules for all of Hollowtree servers, forums and Discord.

1. NO DISRESPECTING STAFF, SERVER, OR OTHER USERS

This means back-talking, negatively challenging our rules, cussing at, name calling, offensively baiting, arguing about corrective action, etc. Staff earned their ranks through time, honesty and hard work. Respect staff for the things they do the way they do, even if it doesn’t make sense to you. /ignore problem players and report them in pm’s to staff them when necessary. Do not make a scene in open chat about it. Do not make threats to, or slander the server.

2. NO CHEATING.

No hacking or exploiting. Fly, speed, x-ray, etc. We have multiple anti-cheat plugins and experienced staff. If you find a loophole or bug, report it. Taking advantage is against the rules.

3. NO GRIEFING, RAIDING, STEALING from other users. (Except on PVP server)

We do have a property claim tool that allows you to protect your land/animals/chests. We can’t always undo damage/death/stolen goods. You are welcome to minecraft map-generated structures. User-built is off limits. Do not /trust someone if you do not completely trust them. If they “steal” from you, it’s your fault, and staff does not interfere with domestic disputes.

4. NO LAG MACHINES

Use of redstone and pistons, 0 tick farms, spawners, auto crop farms, auto mob farms, flowing water/lava etc. is perfectly fine as long as it’s not being abused. If it’s dropping staff or 2 out of 3 peoples’ fps below 30 when near, it’s too much.

5. NO ADVERTISING

No other server talk at all in our game chat, forums or public Discord channels, please. It’s disrespectful to the server you’re on. Promote US! The one you’re enjoying your time on. Promote others in more appropriate places, like Discord private messages or other social media. Don’t join just to advertise your website or channel with no interest in our server.

6. NO BEGGING, NO SPAMMING

/afk, /tpa, LAG, character spam, repeated names, words, sentences etc. is not allowed. Character spam looks like this Wooooooooooo! Repeating a question over and over is spam. People often don’t answer if they don’t know the answer, answer is “no,” or could be busy at that moment. Be patient; ask again later, or try to figure it out on your own. If it’s about the server or any plugins, the answers are most likely at spawn or in forums. Spamming “LAG!” can actually make lag worse the moments it’s happening. Repeating /tpa or /afk is spam. Spam isn’t just a canned meat. It’s annoying.

7. NO EXCESSIVE SWEARING OR LEWD CONDUCT

We expect some tasteful light obscenity for laughs. Most of us that play are young teens or older. Please keep it lighthearted, and NEVER directed toward anyone. Don’t be a bully.

8. NO BUILDING NEAR OTHERS WITHOUT THEIR PERMISSION

Respect everyone’s space or work out a friendly team/town building co-op.

9. NO DRAMA

No intentional stirring of drama of any kind on the server with staff, another player, down talking our server or another server, etc. This includes but is not limited to: self-centeredness, self-entitlement attitude, tattling, baiting staff or other players, trolling to a point of needing a negative emotional response from others, and more. The server was created and maintained as a means to escape the cruelties of reality for a little bit. Let the rest of the server have that, and enjoy it for what it is too. This goes for any real-life drama you’re experiencing. The sad fact is, unless you have a very close friend or family member on there with you, no one wants to hear about your mamma’s second cousin’s grandma’s divorce. And even then…that’s what /msg is for. It’s not our business! Don’t tell a bunch of strangers your deeply emotional business, chancing inviting being picked on for it!

10. ENGLISH IN MAIN CHAT

Please use private messaging or party channels for non-english speaking friends or family. If there’s just a couple of you that understand the alternate language, it’s spam to the rest in open chat, and is disrespectful. The majority speaks english. It’s no offense to your native language. On the contrary, we’re happy to have people from all over the globe <3

If you are rude as soon as you join, expect to be treated as much. If you are nice, we move mountains for you.

From all of staff, enjoy and welcome <3

Terms and Conditions

HOLLOWTREE TERMS AND CONDITIONS

(Please note this is the forum version and may not be as updated as the Terms and Conditions included in the Hollowtree Donation Store; most updated version will pop up at time of checkout)

Hollowtree Terms and Conditions

By visiting the Hollowtree.net domain or our gaming network at play.Hollowtree.net, and by continuing to use any of our services, you are agreeing to these terms and conditions.

Thank you for considering a donation to Hollowtree. Hollowtree is a Minecraft server community, and all donations go towards the costs of operating/upgrading the server network and improving our community. Hollowtree network costs money to run, and a full-time job to maintain. All donations, large and small, are very much appreciated by the Hollowtree Administrative Team.

Donations by users have helped make Hollowtree possible and they allow us to cover our costs and put our time and effort into making our services even better. If you have other ways you think you can help us out, feel free to contact us.

These Terms and Conditions are applicable for any use of our Services and any donation(s) or payment(s) made at any date, with any virtual item(s)/rank(s) rewarded, and with any amount paid. We reserve the right to update these terms at any time, and you acknowledge and agree that it is your responsibility to review this site and this policy periodically and to be aware of any modifications. We will notify you of any changes to these terms by posting those changes on this page. By continuing to use our services and by making any payments to Hollowtree, you signify your acceptance of these terms and conditions and our Privacy Policy, and you agree to follow the server rules (found at https://www.hollowtree.net/forum/m/48871874/viewthread/31884268-server-rules and terms of service for any Hollowtree Services you use.

Definitions:

“Hollowtree” – The term “Hollowtree” refers to Hollowtree as a whole, which is represented by the Hollowtree Administrative Team. The terms “we,” “us,” and “our” refer to the Hollowtree Bungee network (multi-server platform) and the Hollowtree Administration Team. The terms “donor”, “user,” “you,” and “your” refer to site visitors, and any other users of our services.

“Services” – The term “Services” refers to any service that Hollowtree offers, which includes our Minecraft Servers, Website, Forums, etc.

“Hollowtree Minecraft” – The term “Hollowtree Minecraft” refers to the Minecraft servers we offer, which includes servers running on or connected through the ip: “play.hollowtree.net”. Hollowtree is not in any way affiliated with Mojang AB, the Illuminati, your grandmother’s nailpolish company, or any other company, copyright, or trademark.

Donation Values:

Stated donation values are in US Dollars (USD) and Enjin’s website point system using US Dollars (USD) as a conversion constant. These may not be perfect conversion values and we reserve the right to change the point-to-dollar value at any time. While Hollowtree does not charge international fees and absorbs any international fees from payments originating outside of the United States, please be aware that some banks, depending on the method of donation, may still directly charge you a small fee, usually varying with the amount of the payment, which we can neither control nor reimburse.

Donation Methods and Process:

Donations are accepted through our Enjin DonationCraft store at https://www.hollowtree.net/shop via PayPal, which allows quick and automatic processing from verified accounts.

The username for the account which donation privileges should be applied must be specified on the donation page under the “username” field. If you are donating for a rank you must be registered on our forums with the same username as ingame. If the username is not included Hollowtree cannot guarantee that the donation will be applied, however Hollowtree will do its best to attempt to identify the Donor.

Processing Time:

Payments made through PayPal are handled automatically by our system. Ranks should be applied between 30 seconds to 5 minutes after the donation is made. If your new rank is not applied within 10 minutes of making a PayPal donation, please contact a Hollowtree staff member.

Please be aware that PayPal may hold payments from unverified accounts or payments by check until that payment clears with the bank, which can increase processing time by up to two weeks. Unfortunately we have no control over these holds and will not apply any purchased permissions until payment is confirmed.

Payment Rules

Legitimacy of Payments:

Donations must be made with the expressed authorization of the account holder or card holder. Donations not made with expressed authorization are not welcomed by Hollowtree, and if issues arise, Hollowtree reserves the right to remove privileges and restrict or remove the user’s access to Hollowtree services.

Refundability:

Payments made to Hollowtree are non-refundable. Hollowtree will always endeavor to provide a satisfactory outcome as is judged best by the Administrative Team for all players and Hollowtree as a whole. We attempt to be as transparent as possible in our processes and in what you should expect. Even if a Donor is still not satisfied with an outcome, a refund should not be expected, nor will it be given.

Application of Server Rules:

In addition to special Donor rules which provide guidelines for their use of privileges to maintain compliance with the Mojang EULA, all Hollowtree Rules, found at https://www.hollowtree.net/forum/m/48871874/viewthread/31884268-server-rules, and terms of service still apply to Donors. In the event a Donor has their privileges or access to a Hollowtree service restricted for a breach of the rules or terms of service, they will be given a fair chance to have their concerns heard, as any normal user would have. Donors will not be given special consideration or treatment because they have made a donation.

Privileges Awarded to Donors:

In return for a donation to Hollowtree, the Donor may receive virtual in-game rewards, currently in the form of in-game privileges. All online users may also be rewarded at the time of a donation as a “Donation Thanks Celebration.” This is done as a way to thank users who donate and to recognize their instrumental support in helping to maintain Hollowtree. The donator prefixes and any other donation privileges are non-transferable, and the perks, price, names, and weight of ranks may change at any time. Should any Hollowtree servers undergo a reset for any reason, losing a donator rank and priveleges along with user’s data, Hollowtree Administrative team will do its best to return the donation rank or its closest equivalent upon request and administrative varification of past purchases.

Ingame Privileges:

In return for donations to Hollowtree Minecraft, users may receive a set of privileges that correspond to the level of donation made. The official list of the entitlements for each rank can be found on our website at https://www.hollowtree.net/shop. This page supersedes any other donation information, including that given by staff members, in-game info, or Hollowtree forums. Hollowtree will do its best to honor the privileges it specified to a user at the time that they donated. However, this is not always possible and Hollowtree reserves the right to make changes to the reward scheme and Hollowtree’s services as Hollowtree sees fit.

Hollowtree reserves the right to remove any privileges granted at any time for any reason.

Custom Donation:

You also have the option to donate without receiving privileges. Donating beneath the “Custom” category without instruction from the Hollowtree Administrative Team shall be considered a donation without reward(s).

Server Changes:

Changes may occur, such as a server reset, data corruption, or user error, that could remove privileges or affect gameplay. We will do our best to restore privileges for current Donator Rank members/subscriptions and active users in good standing, but some items may be irretrievable.

Minecraft EULA:

We have done our best to remain compliant with the Minecraft End User License Agreement (EULA) and will make every effort to remain so. This may include making changes to donator privileges, with or without notice to the donors at any time, and any loss of privileges will not be refunded.

Liability:

Hollowtree will not be held responsible for any harm caused to its users through use of its services.

Indemnification:

You agree to fully indemnify, hold harmless and defend (collectively “indemnify” and “indemnification”) Hollowtree and its directors, officers, employees, agents, stockholders and Affiliates (collectively, “Indemnified Parties”) from and against all claims, demands, actions, suits, damages, liabilities, losses, settlements, judgments, costs and expenses (including but not limited to reasonable attorney’s fees and costs), whether or not involving a third party claim, which arise out of or relate to (1) any breach of any representation or warranty of Hollowtree contained in this Agreement, (2) any breach or violation of any covenant or other obligation or duty of Hollowtree under this Agreement or under applicable law, in each case whether or not caused by the negligence of Hollowtree or any other Indemnified Party and whether or not the relevant Claim has merit.

Authorization:

You are above the age of 18 or 18 years of age, or you are operating with the guidance and consent of a parent or legal guardian.
You have authorization to use the debit/credit card and/or PayPal account to donate.

We reserve the right to ban any account without notice for any reason.
You understand and agree that you will not be issued a refund.
You agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions as listed above.
