    Welcome to the official Venom Rules and Regulations thread! You are expected to abide by the following rules and conditions while utilizing any of our services. Failure to comply may lead to a partial or complete restriction to aforementioned services.


    This is in no way an extensive list of all the possible offences that are punishable.
    Players are expected to familiarize themselves with the rules upon utilizing any of our services;

    - "I didn't know that was against the rules" will not be accepted as an appeal or excuse in any case.
    Warnings are a precaution against clueless new players and do NOT have to be given out against players who clearly know what they're doing.
    Mojang allows any of their accounts to be reclaimed by the original owner using the TID, therefore we do not allow the sale of minecraft accounts on Venom or the Forums. If you purchase a minecraft account and the owner TID's the account back; VenomPvP is not liable for any damages caused.
    Staff retain the right to choose an extended punishment if the player has surpassed the frequency of stated offences.
