Should the mention of server names for non-advertisement purposes be bannable?

    Well, I apologise on whoever's behalf, because that's a bit over-the-top :oops:

    Honstly, the max it should have ever been was a verbal warning through /msg but even that seems too high in my opinion.

    Okay, reading this I can tell about peoples opinions. I also honestly feel, if you try to take people away to one server or the next, it might hurt the server more. We are an small community that needs to rebuild. If you want to say your opinion about other servers, yeah its fine, but averts in one way or another might damage this server.

    New rules have been released. Be sure to check them out!
    http://bcsn.us/forum/index.php?threads/new-buildcraftia-server-network-rules.3028/

    "Advertising other servers on the BuildCraftia Network or Forums will result in a ban from the Network and the Forums. Advertising can be sharing an IP or a website (other than BuildCraftia related) in public chat, messages, pet names, signs, books… et cetera.

    Sharing YouTube (and other) links is allowed on BuildCraftia. However, if the link contains information about another server than BuildCraftia, or if it’s generally rude or offensive, it will not be tolerated and will result in punishment.

    Advertising other servers ALWAYS results in permanent ban."

    I know it's not stated, but I was wondering if you are allowed to say the names of the server. But simply not saying it to benefit another server, for example:

    + Did you hear about Server Name? Yeah they've gone really downhill recently
    - Anyone wanna play Skywars on Server Name?

    So basically, are we allowed to mention server names?

    I asked Jessiieee, she said as long as it sounds like you're not advertising, it's fine.

    Requesting thread lock?
