    Hello MyrilMC players,
    Recently, there have been numerous complaints about the staff team being too strict or harsh on rules. While I can't speak for how other staff members moderate, the basis of how we handle situations stems from our official Rulebook, found here - http://myrilmc.com/rules

    Due to this fact, you all are going to have a chance to help us, the staff team. In the comment section of this post, if you feel a rule should be edited, removed, or a new rule should be added, let us know! Keep in mind, just because you made this suggestion does Not mean it will be added. However, each suggestion will be discussed and responded to based on whether or not it's accepted. If we need a more thorough explanation of your suggestion, you'll be messaged here on the forums. Also, failing to follow the format posted below or irrelevant comments will be deleted. This is a serious suggestion post to help the server, so thanks!

    The character spam rule- Not necessarily be removed but relaxed. When someone uses a character a few times, example: Heyyyyyyy, they get kicked. In my, and many others, opinion that is a little too strcit. Thanks -SuicideSundays

    Edit: Character Spam is not currently a rule on Myril. However, flooding chat with the same character will eventually get you the punishment for spamming. Thanks for your suggestion though!

    I personally believe that if you're going to do this, the punishment should be extended much longer than what we have.

    What rule should be alerted?: Caps

    Why should the rule be changed?: Too strict

    What part(s) of the rule would you change?: People don't need to be reminded that they're using a capital letter. It gets annoying when a moderator will either message you or say in chat "caps" like we get it we used a capital word wowie wow wow

    Maybe we just want to express our emotions
    (Well that sounded emo)

    What should the new part be?: Not getting kicked for caps. If you're spamming the same thing in caps, then go ahead and kick them.

    In response to the suggestions for the Excessive caps rule: Several members of staff have agreed that a caps filter would be beneficial for the server. This will automatically revert any excessive caps to lowercase, but remove any kicks or other punishments.

    In other words, caps will no longer be a punishable rule, but excessive caps will be filtered out by a plugin. This removes the possibility of staff punishing "strictly" or too harshly.

    Until such a time that this plugin is avaliable and implemented to the server, excessive caps will remain a punishable offense, but will carry more lenient punishments. Thanks for your suggestions!

    What rule should be alerted?: Sensitive topics

    Why should the rule be changed?: To relaxed

    What part(s) of the rule would you changed?:
    The areas that are put under the topic of sensitive topics could be enforced more. If somebody is in trouble, the talk about it could majorly offend them in a personal manor and hurt them.

    What should the new part be?:
    I think a more severe punishment should be put in place for "Sensitive topics" because of how major the topics actually are.

    What rule should be altered: Suicidal Encouragement
    Why should the rule be changed: Are you serious 1 week ban for that like cmon who is going to kill themselves for minecraft make it a kick or a mute but just not a ban 1st time kick. 2nd time mute 10mins 3rd time mute 30mins.... a ban is unnecessary a mute will mean that the player cannot chat to other people.
    What parts of the rule would you change: (Punishment, complete removal, etc) 1st time kick 2nd time mute.... no ban
    What should the new parts be: no ban

    In response to the suicidal encouragement suggestions:
    This rule was put in place for very extreme cases of harassment. As far as I'm aware, we've only ever punished for this offense one time and it was after a discussion about it. The reason we have this rule, and that we're so strict on harassment on our server, is due to this:
    While people bullying or harassing you online might not bother YOU specifically, we try to keep all players in mind. There are a surprising number of players that deal with depression or an abusive home life, and minecraft is the only "safe place" where they get a chance to relax and actually be happy. When you, as a player make the decision to disrupt this one safe space and harass someone, the consequences could be unthinkable. A stranger on the internet harassing effectively validates everything that they may be thinking of themselves, and lead to suicide.

    Regardless, due to the fact that this rule is rarely used and harassment is a legitimate problem, we will not be relaxing the punishments at this time.

    The rule he's referring to is used for punishments very rarely, and only in extreme cases. This is the punishment set when a player is being constantly harassed to a point where we feel it's 100% malicious and unprovoked. As far as I'm aware, we as a staff team have only banned for this rule once, as it was a very serious situation. Joking, however, would rarely get you a normal harassment ban, much less this stepped up version.
