πŸ“œ DOGECRAFT SERVER RULES

The Dogecraft rules are applicable to all players and staff. That being said, it is in your best interest to keep these rules in mind as you enjoy Dogecraft. If anyone violates any of these rules, please feel free to reach out to our staff team or our founders/managers. These expectations and policies are to be withheld by all to keep Dogecraft an equal and fair community. Breaking rules will result in punishments.

1. General Chat Rules

3g) When trying to contact staff, go from Intern > Helper > Moderator > Admin > Founder.

8. Punishment Guidelines

WARNINGS: These carry over a span of seven days. More warnings will automatically equal harder punishments.

TEMPBANS: Temporary bans are given out and determined in length by our rules.
