In our current situation with the survival realm, there are multiple opportunities that are questionable due to the rule on AFK machinery. The main one I am enlisting, being the AFK fish farm.
Minecraft Server Rule (8)
“Tools to prevent players going into AFK are prohibited (e.g. Anti-AFK Pools, etc).”
This rule makes it questionable whether or not a fish farm would be allowed as it is an innocent, very useful action to take advantage of in Vanilla Minecraft. I do understand that limitations have been put in place to make the server even more vanilla, like the removal of money, the market, teleportation, etc. I find it to be highly contrary to limit the players by even making fish farms illegal, as it is now even harder to obtain items with the removal of the market. Fish farms are a great reliable way to obtain special items like Nautilus Shells, Mending Books, and Saddles.
With this current rule in place it removes this capability entirely, making fish farms illegal. I question whether or not if fish farms could be an exception, if they already are an exception, or if that rule is necessary due to server resets kicking players every 12 hours anyway. Basically what I am implying is, with a rule like this in place the server becomes even more limited than vanilla. Please reply your thoughts on this Staff.
