In order for your server to remain as a “community” server, it must adhere to the guidelines provided by Facepunch. Failing to do so will result in your server becoming blacklisted.

Plugins that affect gameplay in any capacity are not tolerated on vanilla servers. The point of a community server is to allow players to experience the game as it’s meant to be played.

There are exceptions to this rule, however. Some plugins, specifically admins tools, are allowed to make your life as a server owner easier or to allow for some monetization values to help your server bring in cashflow.

If you have to ask whether or not a plugin is acceptable under community chances are it’s not. We’ve compiled a list of plugins we recommend which are acceptable for community servers.
