Q:What is the "Golden Rule"?
A: Protect your stuff.
Q: How long will it take for my application to be accepted?
A: As long as it takes.
Q: Is there a way that I can be unbanned if banned?
A: Nope. The BanHammer is all-commanding and incontrovertible.
Q: A Creeper blew up on my first night but did not destroy anything. What gives?
A: Creepers have been Nerfed on World so that they do not destroy blocks.
Q: If I accidentally mine into another player's structure will I be banned?
A: It depends. Generally, it is up to the recipient of the grief whether to enact The BanHammer or show clemency. It's best to contact the owner via forum private message before escalation proceedings begin.
Q: How do I make money?
A: Each player starts out with $100. To increase that, you can sell items you've mined or found to the bank or to various stores, or another player may offer to pay you to do work for them. You can find further ideas here, and (if your ethics tend to shade towards grey) here.
