A small update

  1. Hi guys,

    this is just a quick update. Firstly, elytras have been re-enabled in the end!
    Additionally, there has been a slight rule change, please read the updates to rule ten, specifically on the promotion of gambling.

    Should be noted that this rule always existed in the old Redstone rules, and should've carried over into the new ones and into the main rules
  3. I think that this is your new update?

    While you may make gambling games, machines, casinos, or shops or establishments concerned with gambling, you are not allowed to promote them in public chat, discord, on the forums, or via any in game method.
    When was this previously in any older rules? Last year I had to put several people on semi-permanent ignore because their casino advertisements were so annoying.

    Okay so I did locate the outdated Redstone and casino rules(by outdated I mean over 4 years old). My mistake for saying it had always been no advertisements, this document says "one per day per casino". Staff has changed our minds since then, and believe in the current rule from now on.

    Would this mean that a casino must not be accessible easily as to prevent advertising to passers by? Would this effectively ban casinos at warps that are not completely hidden away?

    I would assume that its referring to the many ways you can advertise for something in chat, via death message e.g.... I dont think they want you to hide it.

    Use of Wither bars, death messages, in chat advertisements, and item names as a means to promote a casino aren't allowed.
  8. So what does that leave, then? Signs pointing to it? Anything else?

    I'd assume just word of mouth then. I'm not sure how strict the chat rules will be.

    That makes me wonder, would saying that there is a casino at whatever warp count as advertising? Like even if I don't have any part in ownership? Just casually mentioning one exists

    I believe that would be fine, seeing as people say like "they have that at desert warp" or "try swamp warp mall". If there are cases where questions are being asked intentionally multiple times in an effort to advertise, there could be a warning involved

    This kinda just seems unnecessarily aggressive towards Casinos ngl.

  13. Considering that I'd be happier if casinos and gambling machines weren't allowed at all, I think this is one of those "opinions may vary" things.
