What is the Difference between a Battle and a War?

battle is a combat between two or more armed forces. ... Battles are between soldiers, while war is between countries or nations. Battles can be won and lost, but it may not determine the end of the War. Battles are usually short term, while wars are lengthy. (Source: Farhan Syeed on Quora)

What is the Difference between the "Politics" and "Political Party" Categories?

Politics is a category page to hold definitions and ideas (for example, Democracy, Fascism, etc.)

A Political Party is a actual political group that belongs to a location or nation.

Several Political Parties from different nations or locations can share the same ideology. But the reverse is difficult to imagine ( political party with several ideologies).

What can I do if EarthMC ingame chat is too annoying?

The best way is to use the Towny Commands below.

Muting a Specific Player with Towny command

  • /chmute <channel> <player>
  • /chunmute <channel> <player>

Muting a Specific Player with /ignore

  • Caution: Not sure if /ignore can be undone easily.
  • /ignore <player>.   This is undone on server restart.
  • To see who's being ignored: /ignorelist

Muting Everyone (several methods)

  1. Method 1 (best): /chmute, /chunmute
See Towny Commands for Chat below
  • /chmute <channel> <player>
  • /chunmute <channel> <player>
  1. Method 2: Using Minecraft Settings (probably safer)
Go to Minecraft Settings - Multiplayer
Click on "Chat Shown"
Set it to "Commands Only" since you can still type commands
  1. Method 3: Using /mute
You can /mute all.
Caution: Use at your own risk.  Not sure if the reverse is /unmute all.)
