Community Rules

To ensure Ender is a safe and fun place for kids of all ages, we've created a set of guidelines that we expect all members to follow.

Updated over a week ago

We want Ender to be a safe and fun place for kids to have fun together, so these rules are designed to discourage bad behavior that could ruin the experience for others. Please read all these rules carefully, because breaking them could lead to removal from the Club.

Overview

Community rules

We’ll update these guidelines over time, and we’ll let all our parents know when we do, so we recommend referring back often to ensure you are up-to-speed.

1. Promoting a Safe Community

We expect all members within the club to be respectful and kind to each other, use appropriate communication at all times, and expect that members don't share personal information or attempt to grab another member's personal information. Here are ways you can stick to these expectations and promote a safe community within the clubs:

  1. Bullying, threatening, and harassing other members will not be tolerated.

  2. Be supportive of other club members when playing and communicating with them.

  3. Use positive language when communicating with other club members.

  4. Avoid shouting in voice calls or turning on caps lock when typing in chat.

  5. Don’t swear or use inappropriate language when communicating with other members.

  6. Avoid sharing personal information such as your age, location, address, etc.

  7. Ensure you don’t ask other members for their personal information.

2. Using Club Tools Appropriately

When using the different tools we offer in our clubs, we expect all club members to use them appropriately and be mindful of other club members when using these tools.

Club tools refer to voice calls, microphone and camera functionality, rooms and breakouts, and club-specific tools such as the Teleport to Friends tool in the Minecraft Club. Here are ways you can stick to these expectations and use the club tools appropriately:

  1. Avoid playing or making obnoxious or repetitive sounds while using your microphone.

  2. Don’t make inappropriate gestures or bring up inappropriate objects while on camera.

  3. Use provided club-specific tools responsibly.

3. Ensuring Responsible Play

Playing any activities and games that different clubs offer should be done responsibly. Members should treat other members fairly and concerning their experience and knowledge of the activity or game. Here are ways to stick to these expectations and ensure you’re playing responsibly.

  1. Cheating to gain an unfair advantage over other members is forbidden.

  2. Report exploits to club hosts and avoid using them to gain unfair advantages.

  3. Intentionally harming or destroying other members property is not tolerated.

  4. Don’t perform harmful pranks on other members that would worsen their experience.

  5. Respect other members’ personal space by asking before entering it.

4. Parental and Adult Involvement

Ender’s clubs are intended to provide a safe space for only children to play in, meet friends, and learn new skills, and provide parental control tools to the parents of the children who attend the clubs. We expect parents to stay informed, and communicate with their children and the hosts but let the children solely attend and experience the clubs. Here are ways to stick to these expectations and ensure proper parental and adult involvement.

  1. Do not pose as a child when you are above the maximum age we let into the club.

  2. Stay informed on what your child is doing by reading emails or texts from our team.

  3. Communicate with your child and our team on issues you’re having or your feedback.

  4. Ensure your child (and you, as a parent) is the only one accessing their Ender account.

  5. Avoid playing on your child's behalf and help them in the background if needed.

Enforcement and penalties

We’ll update these enforcements and penalties over time, and we’ll let all our parents know when we do, so we recommend referring back often to ensure you are up-to-speed.

Parents will be contacted via email and notified of this email through text if their child violates one or more guidelines. However, depending on the severity of the violation we may opt to handle it solely during the club and therefore don’t need to reach out to the parents.

1. Warning

Warnings are issued for first-time or minor offenses. These types of penalties are typically enforced on guidelines that are violated but do not severely impact members of the club and any damage can be easily reversed.

2. Temporary Suspension

Temporary suspensions are issued for repeated or serious offenses. These penalties are typically enforced on guidelines that have been violated several times by the same member, or severely impacted club members.

3. Permanent Suspension

Permanent suspensions are issued for severe or extreme offenses or continued disregard for the guidelines after previous warnings and temporary suspensions. These types of penalties are typically enforced on guidelines that have been violated and threaten the safety, well-being or positive environment of the club.

Minecraft Disallowed Modifications List

We’ll update the list of disallowed modifications/resource packs over time, and we’ll let all our parents know when we do, so we recommend referring back often to ensure you are up-to-speed.

This section pertains to the Minecraft Club and is not involved with any other clubs within Ender.

Minecraft allows you to download and install modifications and resource packs that change how you interact with and play the game. Most of the time, these modifications don’t cause much harm or allow for unfair advantages, but some may. So we’ve compiled a list of modifications and resource packs that members should avoid when playing the Minecraft Club.

We also encourage parents to watch what their child downloads for Minecraft as sometimes they may contain viruses installed on your device upon download. We recommend running a virus scan on your device if any modification or resource pack is installed.

Modifications

  • Hacked Clients / Hacks

    • These modifications allow users to play the game in ways they are not supposed to and typically allow them to gain unfair advantages over other users.

  • Mods that Crash Players

    • Some modifications are designed to crash players that are on multiplayer servers. These cause large amounts of disruption and therefore are not allowed.

  • Bot / Macro Modifications

    • These are modifications that do repetitive tasks for you automatically. This can include auto-clickers (which allows for unfair advantages) and chatbots (which can cause significant spam and disruption).

  • Xray Resource Packs

    • These are resource packs (and sometimes modifications) that cause most of the world to become invisible, except for valuable materials such as diamond ore. This allows you to gain an unfair advantage and find valuable or rare materials with too much ease.

Report a violation

Club hosts and Ender’s community team are available for support, reporting violations and addressing any concerns you might have. Please include the date of the violation and a description of what happened in your report.

Our team will respond to your inquiry within 24 hours.
