    What is your suggestion?: Have new players spawning in for the first time be given a book in their inventory containing all of the rules of the server.
    How would the suggestion make the server better?: Too many people are not aware of the detailed rules as they either do not know about /rules or cannot be bothered to put in the effort to look at them. This causes people to test which rules are allowed or not, leading to more bans and taking up more staff time. This would be an easy way for people to see the rules and means people cannot use the excuse "I didnt know that was a rule".

    Instead of an item in the inventory, how about just add to the welcome text when you join the Hub with something like "Please review the '/rules' ".

    I mean yea +1 but it honestly isnt needed. it doesnt exactly take a genius to find the server rules. If people dont take the time to even try find or ask the rules and get punished. its their fault. not the servers for having them more available.

    Yeah anything that makes more people review the rules is good.

    -1 totally unnecessary, just a thing in the server message is better

    I think I remember this being a thing on Minelink a long time ago. I could see this being very useful on Factions not just as a rule book, but also explaining different restrictions and things about the gamemode such as cannoning/base restrictions and world sizes and all that shit you would normally have to ask around for.

    -1 this isn't a necessary addition, although i think what edmonster07 said above would help a lot of new players, also this would stop as many people annoying the other players by asking them if something is allowed or not.
