Grief Prevention! SonoraBuild uses Residences to let players create their own settlements and towns.
No Nether!
Unlike most servers, our world doesn't have a Nether. Instead, you can mine for hellish resources at /warp volcanoes.
Vote Crates! /Vote and get crate keys. You can open the crates at /warp crates .

Walk out of the spawn house (or use /rtp to teleport a short distance away) to begin your journey. You start as a Newcomer, and cannot create your own residence claim. Even as a Newcomer, you can still build (or rent land from other players) and explore freely! After 1 hour and gaining some MCMMO skills and 1 km of travel, you have the ability to /rankup to Rookie. At this point, you can make claims using the stick item and the /res create (home name) command. Higher ranks will gain the ability to claim large amounts of land and create sprawling towns.

Griefing and raiding is not allowed. Those who do so will be banned on sight.
Do not PVP unwilling players. This is very unfriendly behavior and also very bannable.
We are a safe space! Please be civil and tolerant towards others and refrain from using sexist, racist, or homophobic language.

I've first joined this server, way back in 2013. I haven't visited in quite a bit, but this is like a childhood nostalgia trip for me. The owners are some of the sweetest individuals I've had the pleasure of knowing, and they take everyone's input and ideas very seriously. It's absolutely fantastic!

I urge you to check out this amazing and wonderful community as soon as you can!! Make this one of your main servers!

This was a cool server. I rather enjoyed it, minus a couple bumpy patches. The owners get offended. By everything. If you join this server, be ready to walk on eggshells. The owners know best and you need to just let them do their thing. I got banned for leaving for a short while after the train wreck that was the server's 1.14 update. The server barely ran. I had recently gotten back on, only to be barked at by staff about how I said I wasn't getting back on ever, calling me out for an attitude I apparently had, when in reality, I was just on the server to play the game with a buddy. I don't recommend this server. To anyone. The owners are bigots and full of themselves. They don't take criticism, and if you try to give it to them it gets you banned for having a bad attitude.

Word of advice to the owners. If you call someone out for having an attitude, or try to call someone out on something they said when they were upset, it's only logical that maybe, just maybe, the person will start acting the way you say they are. Nobody like to be jabbed at. Especially when they rejoin a server with the intent of letting the past be the past, and living in the present. I wish y'all luck on your future server endeavors.

Hey! my apologies for banning you today, and not after making a scene about never coming back to play here following chunk loading issues inherent to the switch to 1.14. I think that would have been a much fairer course of action considering your intense criticism of our abilities as owners surrounding the 1.14 switch, which was hard on everyone. The comments you made sort of indicated you weren't someone we wanted around, but since we thought you wouldn't be back, we didn't make that our first priority. At that time, our first priority, server-wise, was finding a fix for the chunk loading problems.

After your previous behavior, I'm sorry to say it wasn't a matter of if, but when you would be banned, because it seemed clear that there would be more complaining and more bickering at some point in the future. We are not the kind of server to just let antisocial behavior go, or let people exhibit detrimental behavior out in the open. Most servers wait for someone to do something really bad to get banned, but we're trying to be proactive in curating our community by barring individuals who either won't play nice or will only gripe and complain about what goes on here. Those kind of people don't make it fun for anyone, especially the two of us server owners, who are doing this for fun. We aren't getting rich doing this - any donations thus far have gone back into costs like hosting or premium plugins, so don't try to argue that we're "making bank" or anything like that.

You refer to us calling you out for having an attitude. This was not an attempt to bait you into acting out, as you had already committed the offense for which you are now banned for some time ago. I have already elaborated on why we have done so.

As far as us being bigoted? We really haven't done anything to demonstrate that, and make every attempt to be inclusive to all (except people with bad attitudes, obviously). Our exclusion of you had only to do with the content of your character, and no other attributes about you. If you are a constructive, tactful individual, you'd have nothing to fear here. Your comments are similar to the previous banned individual in the comments in that they don't seem to understand that they don't have to "walk on eggshells" as you say, to stay here. I think that's telling, and that lack of understanding only confirms our decision to do what we did.

Again, sorry for the unfair, delayed ban - I promise that I will act more swiftly in these matters in the future. I'm sure you will find a community that is a better fit for you elsewhere.

I was banned for no reason, I was extremely polite and interacted in a positive manner. I kept to the rules and regulations of this server. I even asked if I could donate money to help the server grow..

SonoraBuild is a privately owned entity and we reserve the right to refuse access to those who we feel do not contribute to the well being and spirit of this community. Thus, I feel that if you invite "bad elements" (that is, passive aggressive, mean-spirited individuals) into the server it wouldn't be prudent that you remain here. I appreciate your attempts to be polite and keep in line with the rules, but the net impact all in-game actions have to the server also plays a part.

Additionally, asking if there are donation ranks does not constitute supporting us and I don't let the prospect of earning donors influence what we do with the server. The community that I maintain here is way more important than money. So sorry to refuse you access to the server and I wish you all the luck in finding a community that fits you

First off, if my friend was toxic then you should of confronted me about it, I could of asked him to leave. Secondly, I never asked about donation ranks, I just wanted to donate to help the server out, it was never for personal gain.

I warn anyone who is looking to join this server:

1. Do not invite friends, they could be considered toxic and you will get banned.

2. Do not ask to help the server out, you will get banned.

3. Do not rely on the staff to be mature about situations, you will get banned.

4. Do not interact with the community, because if you say one wrong thing, you will get banned.

5. Do not spend too much time on this server, because there is a possibility that you will get banned.

I'm a little confused by your response. It doesn't constitute a refute to anything that I've said and basically is the opposite of the kind of maturity you claim to expect from MC servers you frequent. I don't know why you would think that my protectiveness towards the community means that I would ban people for legitimately being helpful or being constructive. I think by writing this, you've demonstrated a kind of behavior that isn't in line with what this community wants or needs in terms of membership and again, I hope that you find a place that is right for you.

I realize I can just delete comments that are negative to the server but I think it's fair of me to at least address what you've raised so far. To do so, I've written a point-by-point response of the rules you've written for this server.

1. Please don't invite negative, passive-aggressive individuals to the server. It doesn't speak well about your intentions or how you will influence the community. We reserve the right to ban people who we feel won't contribute positively to the server. I also am unwilling to ban just one member of a group who joins together in circumstances where one member acts out and I feel that other members of the group may retaliate for the ban.

2. We always appreciate suggestions and donations! We've never banned anyone for donating, and most people who do have decided to hang out and play with us for a while first, so we know that have the best intentions for the server. Going back to the suggestions thing - most suggestions that are seriously thought out get considered at least a little, and tons of little things suggested by our players do get implemented. However, I have been known to dissuade people from donating if they have not played for a long period of time and am comfortable with refunding donations of people who have donated within a day or so of being banned (though I have never had to do this).

3. The reason we are such a small staff team is that I only make people staff who I feel can respond maturely to situations like this. Making complex community curation decisions isn't immature, it's a protective measure.

4. The community here is super varied and of all ages! I do try to be constructive with people if they are saying things that are outwardly offensive to other players, but it's often hard to police people whose interactions are less clear. In cases where I feel like their interactions are more of a liability than an asset, I may choose to make the difficult decision to ban them. If you don't have the self-awareness to tell if your actions are a liability, it may be safer not to join.

5. Many members of our community have played longer than a year or two, and we have a few 6-year veterans here. Some of them are quite politically different than other members of the server, but that's fine, because they're super respectful people.

Thanks for reading! Please don't hesitate to contact me further by PM if you have any other things to say.
