The Very Vexy Terms of Services
The following rules apply to Super Hostile Online, the Vechsilla server, and to Vechs’s Patreon Discord. Breaking the rules can get you banned, so read them!
1. Respect Others
We’re all here to have fun trying not to die, so we all have to treat each other with respect. That includes other players, people in Discord, the moderator team, and Vechs himself. If you have an issue with anyone/group, please contact the moderators privately about the issue. This helps maintain a positive atmosphere and allows for situations to be handled professionally as possible.
Disrespectful behavior includes, but is not limited to:
Sexism/Racism/Ageism/Ableism, or any other discrimination
Threats of any kind
Griefing Twitch broadcasts/Youtube Recordings
Pranking another player without consent
PVP of any kind, blocking ladders, training mobs (see no griefing)
Advertising for other games/servers/services, in general, no spamming.
2. Don’t Cheat
Servers like Super Hostile Online and Vechsilla require constant tweaking and balancing, and this is all undone when people disrupt the game. This includes, but is not limited to:
Taking advantage of bugs and/or exploits
Discovering but not reporting bugs and/or exploits
Theft from other players
Intentionally disrupting the server’s economy
Using unapproved client-side mods (see below – Client-Side Mods)
If you find a bug or exploit, please report it to a moderator immediately. You will never get in trouble for reporting a bug or exploit, unless it turns out that you used it to your advantage.
3. Be Responsible
Remember that you are responsible for your own behavior, and since your account is how we evaluate your behavior, you are also responsible for keeping your account safe. If you loan it to a friend and they break server rules, we will still ban the account, even if it was your friend breaking the rules. Please make sure your passwords are secure and that you never give them out to anyone.
Using any sort of client-side mod to gain an unfair advantage on any Vexian server violates rule #2. However, there are some client-side mods that are totally fine. If you’re ever in doubt about whether a mod is okay, ask a member of the moderator team.
X-ray texture packs/mods
Minimaps that show other players, entities, unexplored cave systems
Macros, automated clickers, mapping chat commands to buttons
Performance improving mods (e.g. Fastcraft, Optifine)
Shaders and other aesthetic mods
Hud modifications (e.g. armor and status effects)
Brightness and gamma adjustment mods
Minimaps that do not show additional data (players, entities, caves)
If you’ve broken the server rules, you will likely receive an official warning. You can tell that it’s an official warning because a moderator will privately message you (either in-game or in Discord), and explicitly state that it is an official warning. If you receive a warning, please acknowledge it.
All moderators have the authority to give an official warning, and it is that moderator’s responsibility to communicate that to the rest of the team.
The moderator team keeps records of warnings so that we can evaluate whether a player has misbehaved enough to warrant a ban. This process will vary from case to case, as not all infractions are equal. And some offenses can be significant enough to warrant an immediate ban.
Breaking server rules can result in a ban. If you are banned, then logging into the server will show you a message that explains why you were banned. If you do not see a message, please contact a moderator for more details, as it is our responsibility to clearly communicate what rules were broken.
Bans can either be temporary or permanent, depending on the severity of the rule-breaking. In either case, we will inform you when/if your ban will expire. Bans do not warrant a Patreon refund.
Attempting to circumvent a ban with an alternate account will result in an extension of the original ban, as well as a ban on the alternate account.
All members of the moderator team have the authority to ban players and are take this responsibility seriously. As such, moderators must communicate with the involved party/parties, gather full details of the offense, and discuss the situation with the rest of the team before issuing a ban.
If you believe you have been falsely banned for any reason, before taking any other action, please submit a formal appeal to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please submit your appeal using the following format:
IGN (in game name), plus Discord name if relevant:
Why were you banned?:
If applicable, what mod/hacks were you using and have you removed them?:
Have you been banned from SHO before?:
Why should we unban you?:
Appeals sent in any other way (discord, private messages, etc) will be ignored and the sender will be advised to visit this page. In particular, do not go straight to Vechs with an appeal, as this will usually undermine your case due to his busy schedule. Any appeal submitted through the appropriate format is guaranteed to receive the full attention of the entire moderator team, including Vechs if necessary.
Please note that in some cases we are unable to share the evidence we have internally for your ban, either to protect the original reporter’s anonymity or in cases where evidence shows inadvertently-collected private information. If you request evidence and we do not provide it, this is probably why.
For the protection of a player’s privacy and reputation, we do not comment on the specifics of any incident related to Vechs/SuperHostile platforms publicly nor privately. We can only confirm that a player has been banned, and when/if the ban will expire. We also do not comment on the progress of an appeal, except to confirm that a case is under review or to respond when a decision has been reached. Understand that the discussion can take some time, as we wish to consider all evidence.
