Anarchy Personal Safety Guide
#1
Playing online computer games should not cause you problems in real life.

Unfortunately, sometimes bad stuff happens. There have been incidents on this very server where players have found and leaked personal information about other players and caused them to worry about going to school or even being in their own house.

Obviously players should not be doing this to others but sadly it is a hard thing to stop. There are no bans on anarchy and it's often hard for police to prosecute the offenders. This is why I have decided to produce this short guide so you can keep yourself safe from these idiots.



1. Don't tell players your real life name, or what City/town you live in. It makes it so easy to track you down on facebook.

2. Don't disclose which players you know in real life or go to the same school to.

3. Don't click links in the server chat unless you are 100% sure they are safe. There are websites which have names similar names to image sharing sites but actually give the poster your IP address.

4. Be wary of using unofficial chat channels as some of them can leak your IP address. Discord is safe however... The official minetexas discord is https://discord.gg/VXBmwJF

5. Don't arrange to meet someone in real life that you met on the server... I mean comon you have no idea who they really are

6. Don't use the same nickname across multiple websites, as it makes it easy for people to find personal information about you.

7. Be wary of using a client recommended by another player as it might send them your coords or even put a virus on your computer which sends them your personal info.

Also completely separate... in order to keep your base coordinates safe, don't show pictures of bedrock in your base.
