Site Notices

By using Hierosoft LLC products or Poikilos' projects including but not limited to software, websites, and game servers, you certify that you understand and agree to the Privacy Policy and Terms of Use (where explicit policy and/or terms that differ are not provided for the service or product).

OldCoder products or services are not affiliated. For more information about minetest.org or mirrors of sites there to which the Download page links, see minetest.org.

The policy and terms below may change without notice.

Privacy Policy

Your username, chat/other communications, logged-in status, and arbitrary data of your account may be visible to the public by using Poikilos' online services. This is likely to be seen by moderators and other Center of the Sun team members, who must also agree to the the privacy policy (continued below) in order to begin or continue their roles. Moderators include but are not limited to users with the "basic_privs" or priveleges which override protected areas of the game world, or any system priveleges which allow modifying user accounts.

A best effort will be made to prevent any additional information beyond the above, including but not limited to information below, from being divulged to 3rd parties. 3rd parties do not include moderators and other Center of the Sun team members.

Your IP address, username, usage, and any other information may be logged for security, in-game moderation, research purposes, or other internal purposes such as legal protection in a dispute.

Terms of Use

The Terms of Use include server use. This includes any use of any services hosted on minetest.io or other domains administrated by Jake Gustafson (this defines Poikilos' online services) and software (as defined in the Software License section below).

Server Use

You may not share your password with another individual or group.

Free speech and private property should be taken in to consideration. However, The administrator owns or is responsible for primary hardware, utilities, and administration time, regardless of donations of time, money, or gifts directly or indirectly contributing to those purposes. Jake Gustafson (elsewhere called Poikilos or the administrator--also the primary moderator) and other team members reserve the right to add or remove any content, code, services, or user priveleges for any reason without notice.

The moderators will make a best effort to monitor and remove content from public or user(s) that is in violation of the Terms of Use or of applicable law, but the content may be kept as evidence. Coercing someone (such as using harrassment or threats) into any behavior including speech, sexual or not, is not allowed. Moderators must make a best effort to recognize and file a report with law enforcement regarding any activity determined to violate applicable law including but not limited to sexual, discriminatory, or threatening behaviors, if the behaviors including speech are in violation of applicable law. Victimhood is not granted to every person who makes an allegation. If there is no a purponderance of evidence (no credible witnesses and no digital records) to confirm allegations then the behavior is impossible to confirm and therefore out of the scope of moderator responsibility. Behaviors that interfere with gameplay but are not in violation of applicable law nor against the Terms of Use are out of the scope of moderator responsibility.

Moderators agree to report allegations regarding areas which they are responsible as defined above and provide all applicable evidence to the administrator, and to not spread identifying information regarding the confirmable victim to anyone not required to respond if the confirmable victim specifies that they wish to keep the personally identifiable information private. Applicable laws override all server policies and terms where they contradict, though contradicting applicable law is neither intended nor known. However, the scope of user-create content that may occur as a result of the availability of services means there is likely to be too much content for the few (sometimes one) moderator(s) to manage. Moderators may voluntarily make a best effort where they deem appropriate to report and/or moderate behaviors that if happened would be in violation of applicable law or interfere with gameplay.

Users should expect freedom of speech to outweigh moderation for the reasons of limited moderation availability, belief in the U.S. Constitution, and services being free of charge and available to the public. Users are responsible for the content they create, and retain the copyright to that user-submitted content (speech and creative works) unless they disclaim copyright, but by submitting content you grant an irrevocable license to Poikilos' online services to distribute the content, potentially along with any identifying information you provide, for any reason including but not limited to allowing other users to see content of the world or a history of the use of Poikilos' online services. If you are an confirmable victim, you must opt out of having your personally identifiable information shared with others other than those required to know it--you must specify that you opt out along with your report in order to ensure that moderators can comply. In addition, you can only retain copyright if you are the original author, and no other form of recision (removing other forms of information you submitted other than personally identifiable information in the case of a confirmable victim who wants their name rescinded from reports to targets defined above) is granted. Poikilos's online services are free of charge and available to the public except where otherwise specified.

Cheating and Griefing

Cheating (exploiting the game such as avoiding the effects of night, blindness, visual obstacles) lead to an immature pointless game of getting more blocks than anyone else. What you can do is make a cool mine with cool lighting, or make an awesome railway that you and other players can ride (remember to protect it).

Griefing

Griefing is the act of destroying parts of the world or otherwise infringing on the gameplay of other players by using the environment as opposed to direct interaction. It is called griefing because it causes other players "grief." This can be a subjective term, and emotions cannot be used to define rules. How a user feels about what is said to them or about what happens in a game is ultimately the user's own responsibility. Also, certain forms of griefing are considered normal when PvP is enabled. However, there are certain forms of griefing that are not considered normal parts of PvP (player vs player) combat and are not allowed on Poikilos' services. Disallowed griefing is when...

Moderators may implement some form of banning or reduced priveleges without notice on a user who either directly in violation of terms or law or even just continues doing anything about which a moderator has warned them. However, due to limited time and numbers, moderators cannot be expected to provide reprocussions or repair for further types of griefing, nor even every instance of violations.
