Someone just broke a rule! Help, what do I do?
Even though the community is moderated and people mostly abide by the rules, this can unfortunately happen at times. The best course of action is to first check if a member of staff is around and working on it. If so, you should have nothing to worry about. If not, document the offence by taking a screenshot and messaging a member of staff, or using the report function available on the main site.
The issue will be looked into as soon as possible and we thank you for your help, it is appreciated. We strongly advise against dealing with the issue yourself to prevent you from getting warned for back-seat moderating, but if you can't resist the urge, please continue with caution and the awareness you might be breaking a rule yourself.

How do I use the server's trader merchants?
Yep, the server has some custom villagers, amazing huh?! These items were implemented to allow a certain feature to function properly or to balance the Game Modes a little better.
To use these special villagers, you can visit the Mall and trade with them. Server merchants are dressed as Wandering Traders and can be found in the Lost & Found store at the centre plaza of the Mall.
Currently the major trades of the merchants are Enderman and Pigman farm warp cards. There is also McBuffy, in jail in Azkaban, who sells player buffs.
There is a chance for special seasonal merchants to sell decorative heads at various times of the year.
I have been banned from the server. Now what?
Unfortunately, most bans given on the Minecraft Server are permanent. However, if you truly regret doing what you did to get yourself banned and promise to never make the same mistake again, you may send a Discord private message to one of our server
⬤ Head Mod
; either briggsmech
(if messaging more than one, please add all names to the one message).
They will look over the events, discuss it with the rest of Staff, and a resolution might be found. If you have received a temporary ban, you may also appeal in the same way to reduce your sentence.
When is the Server being updated to the latest version?
A new version of Minecraft is out? Awesome! When will the Server update? Unfortunately, updating a Server isn't as easy as updating your Minecraft client; a lot more goes into it than meets the eye. Most Minecraft Servers, including ours, use a lot of plugins to make the Server room the way it does. All of these need to be updated to work with the most recent version of Minecraft. Some of those are under our control, but for most plugins we need to wait for the developers to release a new version. These new versions all need to be stable and bug-free. After that they all need to be installed and tested on the Server to make sure everything works as it should, this takes a lot of time and effort. All in all, we can't tell exactly when the Server will be updated, but we try our best to get it done as fast as possible, but most importantly as smoothly as possible. Please be patient and keep an eye out on the Dogcraft Discord
#announcements channel for any information!
Is the Server down?
There are several ways to check if the Server is down. Even if the server appears to be online in the Server List, it may still be down. Check the player count; if this is at 0 and you can't log in, it's relatively safe to assume the Server has crashed. In this case, we're doing our best to sort things out. Please be patient and keep an eye out on the Discord
#announcements channel for any information, or if there is currently any planned maintenance.
What mods are allowed to be used on the Server?
Optifine (optifine.net, optifined.net (Yes, this one is real)) is the only allowed mod on the Dogcraft server. If you are found with any other mods, you may face a permanent ban. There are a lot of mods around and we aren't aware of all of them and their functions, so to make things easier for us and clearer for you, the allowed mod is Optifine.
What Mobs can drop heads on the server?
The Dogcraft Server uses a custom plugin to allow mobs to drop their heads. For a complete list of every collectible head, please visit the page below by clicking the button.
Does ReNDoG play on the Server?
Yes, he occasionally streams UHC events from the Server or just gets on to have a chat with the community. Keep an eye out on his Twitter for updates on when he's going to be starting a stream from the Server! However, be advised, he does not do this very often as he is extremely busy; so please don't join with that expectation in mind.
What is the Helper rank and how is it obtained?
The [Helper] rank is a special rank held by three unique people each month. The purpose of this rank is to grant players who the staff have observed to be very helpful in the community the ability to help players with basic tasks. The tasks include helping new players to link, showing them around, helping them with commands and overall provide general information about the server. Every month, the helpers are selected by the Headmods, usually on the first of the month, and otherwise a few days later if there's any delay. It is important to note that this is not a staff rank, it is a title. The Head Moderators introduced this rank to take some of the workload off the moderators, especially in busy times such as when Rendog is streaming on the server. It cannot be applied for in any way, however if you wish to become one, being an extremely helpful rule-abiding Cyberdog is a great way to start!
