    Server rules are subject to change without prior notice, checking once in a while is advised.

    Offences and their punishments set above are a default template, if seen appropriate by server staff, punishments and their duration may be changed or added as seen fit.

    Although we have tried to cover most of the rules and their punishments above, common sense still seems to lack. Server owners reserve the right to mute, ban or kick (Vice versa applies) for any reason.

    For our Terms and Rules, www.mccities.com/help/terms
    If you feel you have been unfairly banned, create a ban appeal and it will be reviewed and processed by the staff team.​
