Final Comments

We are constantly monitoring Private Messages, a quick scan just to make sure everything is appropriate, we don't read the life story you are telling your bestie. ANYWAYS, point is, make sure that ANY and ALL Private Messages are in accordance to the normal Global Chat rules. Failure to do so WILL get you either

A. Banned (Time depends on circumstance)

B. Private Message muted (For life)

I. May be both Private and Global depending on the circumstance(s).

As staff members, we work very hard to give you guys the best we can give, of course this includes very hard work. And it really makes us feel as if our work is for nothing when someone takes it for granted. So please do not accuse a staff member of anything, example: tspringst33n has been accused of abusing many times before, but he is one of the most responsible staff members out there. Every single time that he is accused of abusing, he is actually just fixing something, removing something for the benefit of the server. So please do not make assumptions about the staff, their decisions, etc.

Clarification about Freedom of Speech

Freedom of Speech is a rule adopted by several governments that allows its citizens to publicly state their opinion of the government. The rule is more formally stated as “The right to communicate one's opinions and ideas without fear of government retaliation or censorship.”

It is a common misconception that it means that you have the freedom to say anything you want, that is not the case. Due to the fact that ShadowXCraft is private property, this rule does not apply.

If you think staff are abusing, fill out this report: https://www.shadowxcraft.net/forms/report-an-abusive-staff.14/respond with VIDEO proof.
