# Map switch in the next few hours. by Teffen - 10/30/10 @ 06:49 PM CEST
Just a reminder, we'll be switching from Devachan to Nirvana tomorrow so pack your inventory for the change. Expect the transition to be bumpy with frequent software reboots. Over the next few hours we'll be testing some starting kits, block placement, backup scripts and a few other plugins that make administration smoother.
Additionally the rules list has been revise to give clarity to player expectations.
1. If something isn’t yours, do not alter it.
2. While glitches may occur, duplication and alteration of item damage is prohibited. When in doubt, ask an Operator for assistance.
3. Client modifications that alter player speed, movement, building limitations, inventory size, health, tool properties or item quantities are prohibited.
4. Respect personal space when building.
5. Don’t be a dick.
# OH GOD RULE CHANGE by N3X15 - 10/25/10 @ 12:42 AM CEST
We're no longer banning as severely for advicedog spinoffs/motivators/4chan memes/etc. Warnings will be handed out to first-time offenders to help newbies acclimate to 7chan's premium quality. Furry shit must still be posted in /fur/.
Raids and other bullshit along those lines are still banned. Also, 4channers are encouraged to lurk before posting to avoid looking like the humongous faggots they are.
