Welcome to Davidscloud!

Davidscloud.net is a gaming community and as such we believe in fostering a positive gaming experience in all of the games we actively support. That means there are some rules we ask all members to follow. As a warning, just because something isn't listed here, doesn't mean that it's allowed and this list will be updated accordingly as we games get added or change. We expect good sportsmanship among our members, we are all here to have fun together after all. Use your best judgment when conducting yourself on our servers and if you have questions consult an admin. Feel free to suggest rule modifications or changes if you think it's needed.

How it works:

Davidscloud operates on a three strike system. Violating any of the rules found here will result in first a warning, then a strike if there is a failure to comply. Strikes are community-wide and permanent on your record. First strike results in one day ban punishment, second strike is three days, and third strike is permanent ban. Keep in mind there are some things that simply can not be allowed and are considered a instant third strike. Extreme sexism, racism, harassment or hacking are all considered an automatic third strike. Davidscloud reserves the right to permanently ban anyone without warning should the situation demand it. Please keep in mind the staff are here to help you, and if you are willing to work with us, we'll be willing to work with you to help resolve conflicts with the rules.

Community Rules:

These rules are expected to be followed on all Davidscloud services and games.

  1. Show respect for other members. No harassment, flames, threats, hate speech, or any kind of discriminatory speech will be tolerated. Saying a statement is “made as a joke” will not excuse it. If you are a victim of such behavior get the attention of an admin immediately. Extreme cases are instant third strike.
  2. No hacking, attempting to hack, or joking about attempting to hack staff passwords or accounts. Do not post or share methods of cheating, exploiting, or hacking. Extreme cases are an instant third strike.
  3. Any attempt to purposely lag or crash a server will result in an instant third strike.
  4. No obscene or inappropriate names, avatars, pictures, or signatures. Do not bypass word protections (ex. @ instead of a). NSFW material must be posted in the correct areas. NSFW posts are still subject to guidelines in rule #1.
  5. Do not spam chats, posts, or any of the services and games.
  6. No disrupting the community. This includes any behavior that disrupts others ability to enjoy being a part of the community (constant raging, insults, bickering, etc.). If you have a problem with or feel harassed by another member contact a staff member. Continued displays of toxic behavior will result in an evaluation of your place in the community and removal if necessary or no changes to behavior are observed.
  7. Do not reveal private information about yourself, anyone else, or corporate entities. Keep your accounts, passwords, address, phone numbers, etc. to yourself. Do not ask other members for this information or try to cheat it out of them (ex. Phishing sites).
  8. Do not advertise other communities, servers, or third party websites.
  9. Use the correct channels/forums/@admin group that is specific to your needs. Be sure to keep NSFW content in the appropriate areas only. Report server issues using !serverissue in discord. Tickets for help must be posted on the forums.
  10. Do not attempt to moderate or police other players yourself. If you see a player breaking the rules or using the services inappropriately PM a staff member.
  11. Do not openly argue with or disrespect staff. If you have a problem use PM to resolve it. If you feel a staff member is being abusive, contact a community moderator/officer/administrator by PM or alternatively send an email to [email protected]
  12. Do not attempt to circumvent a punishment, judgment, or a ban. Do not try to get a different ruling by bugging multiple admins till one agrees with you. If you do not agree with the ruling given you can post an appeal on the forums. Not following the appropriate appeal method can result in an instant third strike.

Game Specific Rules:

These rules are customized for specific games and must be observed if you play the game on our servers or play as member of a Davidscloud not on our servers. Your game not listed? This means behavior in your game should be covered by the community rules (no hacking, no harassment, no spam, etc.). Please remember to conduct yourself with good sportsmanship and if you feel a rule is lacking for a game you play don't hesitate to submit the idea to give feedback.

7 Days:
  1. Do not fully destroy entire cities or other important areas. Do not block access to these areas.
  2. Take only the land you need, do not build excessively sized bases and avoid problematic builds for the server.
  3. Do not dig under someone's base.

Ark PVE:

  1. No blocking, by either building or dinos, important resource locations (ex. Charge nodes, explorer notes, etc), caves (building is allowed if it's non-blocking), Obelisks, spawns, or pathways/waterways to important places. All of these must be accessible without any extensive means of a detour. If your base is accidentally blocking a pathway or spawn make sure a way through or out is clearly marked. Players should be able to fit any type of water/land traffic through. All pumps must be left unlocked for public use. "Safety huts" may be built only around gas/water/oil nodes, but must be left unlocked. If you have questions about your build feel free to ask an admin and they will advise.
  2. Guidelines for base building: Never build anything intentionally meant to lag server (ex. Flashing lights, extreme high walls with no point, etc.). Avoid taking large amounts of land (use what you take). Do not reserve land with pillars/foundation spam intentionally blocking others from building or building to close too a neighbor (without their permission). If your base cannot be fully rendered in when standing at the center, it is too large. If you can see another base at medium render distance you are building too close (exception to this rule is Ab where the options of safe water sources are limited and thus must be shared). Each tribe is allowed roughly three bases per server (a larger and two smaller), then one additional (larger) base for each member. Please note these are guidelines that admins use to determine if you're base(s) are in compliance with server policy to keep the game running as smoothly as possible for everyone. Since this rule is 'subjective', expect multiple admins to review and vote on if your base is in violation to avoid unfair bias. If you are found in volition you will be given time to make corrections unless the build is determined to intentionally harmful to server health (ex. flashing lights) in which case it will be destroyed instantly without notice. Ask an admin before you build if you are worried and they will advise.
  3. Each tribe is allowed one “public build” (Ex. Public forge near mining local, pub with free beer, kibble station, etc.). This is a smaller building/facility that is left unlocked for public access. They must be clearly marked as public use and restricted to the same building rules as bases. If you are interested in more that one public build you must get approval from admins.
  4. No picking up players, or their dinos, without permission. No taking items from players without their permission (ex. drowning bodies in water to loot them or using a wild dino to raid a base to break boxes). Doing so will be considered griefing and subject to the community rules on the matter. Extreme cases can result in an instant third strike.
  5. Demolishing “demoable” bases that are over 90% demoable is allowed. If less than 10% of the base is breakable it is not considered raidable yet (ex. A single greenhouse wall on a base where the metal walls are still under timer protection). Dragging bodies or dinos found in the base to water is still not allowed even when a base is up for grabs. If you need a player's body or dinos removed from an area, please notify an admin to handle it for you. Do not move bodies or dinos into dangerous situations. Ask an admin if you have questions on a base's raidablity.
  6. Dinos must be kept near their tribes base. Tribes are allowed to keep one dino per tribe member at a cave entrance/Obi. Dinos kept at caves cannot be blocking and, cannot fall below a weeks timer, and must be cared for and fed properly. Dinos left in such areas are at your own risk and will not be compensated for if something should happen to them. Any dino found away from a base or failing the cave/obi parking requirements will have 24hrs to be recovered, then admins will deal with it as they see fit. Setting dinos to wander in the wild will result in the dino being confiscated and dealt with as admin please. Wander aggressive dinos will be destroyed on sight. Wander aggressive dinos are considered harmful to the server and can result in an instant third strike in extreme cases.
  7. You may only keep one of each titan (forest,desert,snow, and the titanosaur) they are not allowed to be breed and only one of them are to be on the map per tribe at a time. Violations of this will result in them being deleted.
