    Hello PF Community :)

    I'd like to discuss our currently displayed rules ( You can view these by Clicking here ) and receive feedback regarding them and what you or any others feel about them. I'd like to change some of them up and make them more flexible/stricter so they aren't so hard/light. Rules that won't be acknowledged for changing are Griefing, AFK Abuse, and Hacked clients. Please notice most of the rules can be considered " Heavy " due to our player base growing every day thanks to you! We're always looking to improve the server and these rules help keep tons of things under control; however, on the other hand, we'd like to see what we can be reasonable about to keep the player base happy in regards to those rules.

    We're currently looking into introducing rules for all Peaceful Farms related platforms that we're constantly moderating to give you the best experience you could ask for without being interrupted by rule breakers.

    The staff team is already aware of players talking around about how " Staff make up rules ", however, I can assure you everything the staff team is doing is what's being told to enforce.
    If you've caught a staff member creating a rule that obviously isn't in our rules/defined rules please sure to report it by Clicking here, and the issue will be handled by our Administration team.

    Without having any arguments below, please kindly suggest what you feel with detail can be changed within our rules if it isn't the rules mentioned above. Any players causing drama, arguments, or huge debates about one or multiple rules will be acknowledged and handled by myself or the team.

    I feel like rules on disrespect could be changed to where the victim could decide if they want the person that disrespected punished or not

    Here's an issue I see with that:

    It promotes toxicity. While it's not our concern if people curse at each other as a joke in private chat, in case of a public chat, other people see it. If no punishment is issued, then it'll make people think it's okay to use certain words against other people.

    I have heard that lower rank players giving crops to higher level players to sell (and give money back while keeping some) is against the rules but I don’t think it is mentioned in official rules and I think lt should be added if it is not already because it takes value out of ranks

    In my opinion, I feel like people offering people IGM for them to buy them something from the donor shop shouldn't be allowed. To me it just feels wrong. If someone offers to buy you something then sure, but if you're like "oh who wants 5 mill" and then people reply saying they do, the person offering is like "then by my ___" it seems like something that shouldn't be allowed. Considering the server community is a early teens server, most people maybe don't have jobs to pay for this stuff and they think to themselves, I want that few million so I'll take someone elses card and do it, then eventually it'll get charged back by the parents or the owner of the card. This is just how I see it, though others may disagree.

    From my understanding profit stores aren't allowed meaning you can't pay another player for another work if it involves anything within /prices, noticed this isn't in rules, however, we'll see what we can do about considering not allowing lower ranked players paying higher ranked players.

    This has been discussed before throughout the Administration team and it resulted in being allowed, will be re-discussed a second time.

    This is a small addition to the advertising rule, because I saw it discussed earlier. Social media accounts. You should add that in the written rules that that also counts as advertisement. It says ip addresses, other server addresses, discord channels, and Youtube channels, but it doesn't say social media accounts, and that's part of it.

    Earlier, someone gave a social media account name (they have already been warned by a staff member, and understand what was wrong), and was confused, asking what rule it fell under. That's all. It seems the rules have actually changed in detail, so everything I'd wanted to say prior has been changed. I just think being as specific as you can with your rules, and trying to eliminate any ambiguity to certain things that need clarification is something anyone should do with rules anyway. Finding loopholes that players can abuse might be something to think about too. Idk. Depends on how flexible or strict you decide you want to be. I don't have any real objections to any of the rules, so it's hard to give more constructive feedback lol.

    Social media platforms aren't allowed in public chat just so this doesn't happen, we'll discuss further about the rule being further defined as i had recently found out it isn't obvious etc. Thank you for your suggestion :p

    As many people have reported people for selling DONOR RANK (armor piece)
    I think it should be specified that only /kit items are not permitted and the DONOR RANK is permitted

    Once we have enough feedback on the current ones and we've decided what we're going to be considering changing for the future, any updates on the rules will for sure be announced on our discord.

    Already resolved that ages ago on the server, however, will clarify it on the defined rules if not already done so.

    I got one more. Add the no spaces between words as spam. Likethis but as sentences or phrases. Because it isn't there, but it's also part of the spam rule, and some people think it's not.

    I think there should be some Discord rules. Like rules made for Discord since there aren't really public rules for people to see.

    If you read the post correctly you'll see this has already been announced.

    1. The advertising social media rule should be clarified, I agree with Elfin.
    2. I was told that only English is allowed in chat, but that's not in the rules either, but I think I've also seen staff saying that as well, so that should probably be added too. If I just missed it in the rules, then just ignore this.
    3. There's been a handful of times that nonstaff players have been enforcing rules that aren't in the rules, so I hope when the new rules get made that makes that stop.

    Also I have screenshots I can DM for any of these, if that helps! Thank you!

    I think most of the rules that players are making are from common sense, maybe? not sure xd.

    Anyways, the English only in public chat rule will be added :), thank you for suggesting.

    Add a post for allowed/disallowed mods, so people can know what to use and what not to use. I see players ask about that once in a while.
