New Player Guide
I created an account, what do I do now?
When you signed up for our community by creating an account, you agreed with our Terms of Service and Rules. You should also get acquainted with who people are, and what they do, by reading the Ranks and Duties page.
When you break those rules, depending on the severity, you either:
Actions taken upon breaching the Terms of Service and Rules.
- Get banned from our community (forums, teamspeak server, game servers)
- Be issued with the oathbreaker challenge or other measures
This is a moderated community, and that is why everyone has to live by the rules. If you break the agreement with Terms of Service and Rules, we may undertake actions towards you. Actions can be:
The Oathbreaker restriction
An Oathbreaker loses access to all the commands he was previously given on our game servers, except for /spawn. Oathbreakers also lose all their previously granted permissions. The Oathbreaker sentence lasts 7 days, disregarding when or if you reached your destination.
Bounders or Valars will issue a player with the Oathbreaker challenge, along with a random destination in our world. You have exactly one week to reach your destination by foot. Other players are not allowed to help Oathbreakers by giving them directions, teleporting them or helping them by other means. This challenge is there to prove the accused player his liability and willingness to commit. If an Oathbreaker does not know the location he must reach, he should read about the locations through various lore websites found on the Internet. If the Oathbreaker gets stuck, he can issue the command /spawn to start over.
Once the Oathbreaker reaches the destination, he may contact a Bounder or Valar to reinstate him back to the starting rank.
A permanent or temporary ban restriction
This measure is taken by a Bounder or Valar. They remove the right to visit our servers and make use of our community. If you get banned, you may make an appeal in the Ban Appeals section of our forum. Only Valars and Bounders may appeal a ban.
An overview of warnings, bans and other measures that were dealth out - including Oathbreakers - can be found on the following page: http://mcme.co/o/main/
Now that you have come to this part of the welcoming page, we hope you understand that in order to run a community, everyone falls under these rules.
There is only one last step to complete to be able to log into our Minecraft servers and that is to get whitelisted! You can Apply for Whitelist by visiting http://mcme.co/whitelist/apply/
You'll be asked a few questions about what you can find here in this New Player Guide. Once you have filled in the form, a Bounder or Valar will process your application. This generally doesn't take longer than a day. If you haven't received news if your application was accepted or rejected, please make a post in the Whitelist Help section located here: http://www.mcmiddleearth.com/threads/are-you-not-whitelisted-even-though-you-were-accepted.128/
In the navigation field on the side to this article, you can browse to various categories that may help you further.

After you have received our email informing you that you passed the whitelist and are accepted, you are allowed to connect to all of our official servers. These are:
Build server IP: arda.mcme.co

MCME tries to deliver you the best experience possible. At the same time we have a policy against displaying ads and other intrusive ways to use you for monetary gains. Instead we ask you for a voluntary donation. These funds go fully towards our running costs. An overview of these can be found at the Accounting page, featured at Community Announcements.
