Default A reminder about portal rules

The TOG Minecraft Server Code of Conduct say:
Quote:
Construct nether portals only in the "Overworld", not the Nether

It is hard to position portals correctly. For that reason, we ask players to only construct them in the Overworld. This is because unpaired portals made in the Nether may end up generating Overworld companion portals in the midst of someone-else's construction. Ask in the forum if any portals in the Nether need to be corrected.
Looking at the map for the MindCrack world, you can see that someone made a portal from the Nether to the Overworld, which placed them outside the world border, which subsequently moved them back inside the border. However, the chunk where he arrived in the Overworld was still generated, adding to the world. This is another reason why we made this rule. The more of these that are made, the larger the map will be and players will be punished.

We make these rules for a reason. If you ever have doubts about what you are doing, ask one of the Admin team. Honesty gets players a lot further than trying to hide their mistakes (or flaunting the rules).

One appeared outside my base by a couple of blocks a few days ago. If noone needs it then I shall delete it, I assume it was created in the Nether.

If it is essentially in your property and you didn't make it, you are free to delete it.

Because again, that highlights why people are not allowed to build portals in the nether.

One is present just outside my tree planation on the edge of the city.. ..links to the main portal though.. ..guess thats handy for me if i dont want to go to spawn to visit the nether

If nobody claims it, i am most likely going to construct around it.

I just realized....I don't think that I've even made it to the nether on this server. I guess that I just like the Mystcraft portals (and worlds, for the Glowstone) that much more.

There are some very useful things in the nether. Like ghast tears. And blaze rods. And netherrack. I love the nether.

I'm pretty sure I don't even need to follow that link to know what it is.

Can you give us locations of these portals (ingame or in a PM in the forums) so we can look into them please.
