PLEASE READ ALL THE INFO/RULES POSTED HERE BEFORE YOU JOIN.
No 1x1xY constructs, destroy it after use if you have to have one.
Put a sign w/ your IGN on your buildings.
English only (sorry).
When you join you will be greeted if anyone is on the server. Please say hello. We like people on our server to be socially interactive. Once you have said hello feel free to check the community chest for any helpful supplies for your adventure on our server. Please take only a few things. We need to share the wealth. Everything in the community chest was donated from real players. So there is not an infinite amount of supplies.
Then take one of the three roads out of spawn and travel out into a new area. You can also use the Nexus Nether to move around more quickly.
As you go along please do not disturb areas along the road. Most of these areas are kept up looking nice. They may not be protected, but please respect areas that look well kept.
Once you are out in a new area go ahead and start building a home for yourself.
PS: If you can't find a place to build don't worry we have a Dynmap and a server of over 3GB. Over 99% has never been built on so you are sure to find your own little “chunk” of wilderness.
Once you have been playing for some time, have been socially interactive, and have built some quality structures. You will be added to the Regular Group. This does not have any inherent gains or extra abilities, but it is a symbol that you are now part of our server, and a friend by which we like to play with. From here you can raise your status by helping others, creating amazing structures, and donating to the sever. Building community enhancing structures such as roads, railways, and tunnels will also gain you respect.
When you start building your first structure may not be very pretty, but we are looking for quality builders who build structures that are enjoyable to look at.
Some things we do not allow on our servers are 1x1 Towers, 1x1 Vertical Mine Shafts, and 1-Layer thick Floating Islands. We also ask you to not build structures entirely out of cobble. We realize that your first house will most likely be made out of cobble, but for future structures we ask it is made from a higher quality stone.
Also, please keep mob population to reasonable amounts, i.e. keep them from constantly colliding with each other. Excessive mob population dramatically hinders server performance, and will be viewed as griefing by the admins. If you have too many mobs in your area, an admin will inform you.
/region addmember <RegionName> <PlayerName>
/region removemember <RegionName> <PlayerName>
/region flag greeting <RegionName> <PlayerName>
/region flag farewell <RegionName> <PlayerName>
Although we do protect peoples areas, we will not protect your area until you have been on the server a few times, and have shown that you will be a returning player. This is to keep areas open and free instead of being full of protected areas that no one uses. Even if you area is not protected you don't have to worry. We have almost no griefing on our server. Griefing on our server is one of the highest offences, and merits and instant ban with no questions asked. We also allow unlimited protections to players without asking for money or ingame items. This is something that we give to players for free so please do not exploit our gift. This is not a right it is a privilege. Please do not abuse it.

You build amazing and well thought out structures. You have helped build roads, railways, tunnels, and other helpful structures.
Yellow = DVRP "Donating Very Respected Person"
You are a VRP and have donated to the server. You have the choice of having Green, Teal, and Yellow be your name color.
Red = Admin
ARKaMINE is co-run & rented by ARKaMAN & Alkoed. They are the only two Admins on the server. They are also the only two admins there ever will be. A Lot of servers run into problems when the server is ran by two many people with different ideas of how it should be run. That is why we like to keep things simple. ARKaMAN & Alkoed often discuss what is best for the server before taking any kind of action. They also ask players what they think of a certain changes that may be deployed.
If you have an issue with another player our first hope is you can resolve the issue in a mature way between yourselves. If you do not see any way to come to terms with the other player, we ask you to come to an admin to investigate the dispute. Admins have tools to look up anything that has ever happened on the server. They will gladly investigate any events that have taken place and decide the verdict. If you have a dispute with another player please do not trade insults with him/her or grief work they have done. This will only hurt you, and our community.
As you may know hacking is a real problem in Minecraft. They are many hacking tools for multiplayer with no real anti-cheat in place. We have tried many different anti-cheat plugins and have never performed very well. Especially considering we are a server based on doing everything by hand end legitly.
We DO allow ingame bug exploitation. Unless the exploit causes the server to lag. This rule does not include exploiting any plugins or any exploits that require any external tools or .jar modification.
We may not be able to stop everyone, but you are wreaking what our server is about. There are plenty of other servers that allow what you may want to do, but our server is all about building things by hand. There is a list of tools that we allow in the server at the bottom of the post. Thank you for understanding.
