  31.  
  32. Administration reserves the right to utilize the permission of PonySpy.
  33.  
  34. User conduct:
  35.  
  36. Upon joining the server, the user understands that they have the privelege of privacy against other users, but not administration.
  37.  
  38. Upon joining the server, the user understands that they have the privelege of speech. However, as it is a privelege, it may be revoked at any time if abused.
  39.  
  40. Upon joining the server, the user understands that the server collects and stores information about the user. This information includes, but is not limited to, the following:
  41. User name
  42. online status
  43. current nickname
  44. nickname history
  45. ip address history
  46. first login time
  47. last login time
  48. last logout time
  49. inventory
  50. ban information (banned, ban type, ban reason)
  51. notes from administration
  52.  
  53. Upon joining the server for the first time, a user shall have a book in their hand. Reading this book will inform them how to gain build priveleges on the server.
  54.  
  55. 1) A user may not, under any circumstance, save for approval by administration, grief on the server.
  56. 2) When addressed by administration, a user must take steps to ensure that their attention is given to the administration that addresses them. They shall not ignore administration when addressed.

Administration currently approves minimap mods, coordinate display mods, and MineLittlePony.

  70.
