Minecraft Youniversity Strong Character Code

It is important that we are all on the same page as to what behavior is acceptable and what is not. We have generated this code of ethics to help promote an attitude of cooperation, sportsmanship, and good character.

Damaging structures and Pillaging

  • Pillaging is taking something that does not belong to you. Damage is any destruction or alteration of someone else's belongings or structures in the game done without permission. Here is what you can expect when this occurs
  • 1.This is a great time for us to practice managing our conflicts effectively
  • 2.It is important that mediators understand what happened and, more importantly, WHY.
  • a)First, a discussion will be held in-game around The Round Table with your instructor
  • b)The player who pillaged must return the items and help that player complete his or her task
  • c)The player who damaged another player's belonging must repair or reconstruct the damaged item and help that player complete his or her task
  • d)If this behavior continues, the player will team with the instructor for 3 sessions and must complete a secret mission before returning to their desired team
  • e)If the behavior has not been corrected, the player will be removed from the live in-game sessions and provided alternative activities.

Be respectful

  • 1)Communication should be positive and helpful
  • 2)Criticism can be good, but should not be mean or rude
  • 3)Some activity objectives in-game is not to finish the quest first, but to work together and help everyone finish the quest
