MineCog ("MineCog", "we", "us", "our") allows developers who meet certain requirements to upload "premium resources" which may be purchased by all users for an amount set by the designer. It is not our aim to create a marketplace, or have developers whose only involvement in the community is within this section; but rather to incentivize and reward developers for creating and maintaining plugins of good quality. The Main Rules The payment facilities on this website are provided for your convenience only. At no point in time does MineCog participate in the transfer or receiving of funds. This means that all relationships exist entirely between the buyer, seller, and potentially payment processor (PayPal). We are not an agent for any party. As a result of this, it is not our duty to ensure any level of access to any resources. If you find yourself unable to access our site (for example as a result of being banned), then it is up to the author to provide you with access elsewhere. All payment disputes must be handled through the payment processor. We urge all resource developers to provide a reasonable level of support and updates to their customers. This being said, there should be no expectation when purchasing a resource that the resource will be updated or maintained beyond what is currently provided. If a dispute is opened against a resource, the buyer will lose access to the resource automatically regardless of resolution decided by the payment processor. MineCog will not investigate disputes except in repeated cases or cases where the reason is "Unauthorized Transaction". Paying by e-cheque is also allowed (if enabled by the seller on their PayPal account), however, any transactions which bounce will be treated the same as a dispute. It is a violation of the forum rules to republish or distribute any resources which you have purchased. This means that you should only give those whom you completely trust access to a server with premium resources installed; lest you be held responsible for their actions. Additionally, it is not possible to transfer resources between accounts, so if you feel you may be in a situation where a shared "server" account is required, you should use it from day one (and only for this purpose in line with other forum rules). Finally just to be clear once again (as per our full Terms of Service which govern this entire website): We, the providers of the service provided by this web site ("Service") are not responsible for any user-generated content and accounts ("Content").

As per the Terms of Service: We reserve the rights to terminate or modify any Content submitted for any reason without explanation.

Content Removal We will do our best to remove resources when a copyright complaint is received and we believe an infringement has taken place. If we do not believe an infringement has taken place, we will remove resources only when receiving a formal notice meeting the constitutional requirements of your jurisdiction (DMCA or otherwise). In submitting such a notice you agree to us publishing it in its entirety. Resource descriptions should be of good quality This should be in English. If the in-game text is not English then this should be clearly noted. This means a description sufficient to detail their complete functionality, installation, and usage. Pictures and/or videos are highly sought-after. Obfuscation / DRM You are allowed to obfuscate your resources, however, the decompiled code must be somewhat legible by staff. We may request you use a different obfuscator or none at all. DRM systems are (provisionally allowed), with the following key caveats: We may request it be removed or altered at any time. We will treat all complaints of DRM abuse with the highest severity, which may result in immediate and permanent suspension of your resource unless sufficient evidence is provided. They must not interfere with any aspect of the server outside of the plugin itself. All resources must run directly from the downloaded file without any manual installation steps or internet access. This means that licensing systems of any form are prohibited. Resources must not depend on other premium resources. Pricing It is up to you to pick suitable resource pricing for your resource. Resources with higher prices will be examined more than those with lower prices.
