    Global Server Rules - In-Depth

    • Player Disrespect:
    Please respect and treat all players fairly. Disrespect, belittling, name-calling and "callouts" against any member (player or staff) is not allowed.

    • Chat Related Offenses:
    Some chat offenses include but are not limited to spam, flaming, swearing, and filter bypassing. Chat offenses are always taken into context and punishment may vary.

    • /Nick Abuse
    Nick abusing is when you take the nickname of a player who had it first and use it for your own purposes. If the player gives you permission, you are allowed to use it. If you have permission to use someone's /nick, please try and have screenshot proof of them saying you can.

    • Extreme Chat Related Offenses:
    Some extreme chat offenses include but are not limited to racism, sexism, homophobia, death wishes/death threats or discrimination of any sort. Chat offenses are always taken into context and punishment may vary.

    • Advertising and Inappropriate Links:
    Do not advertise any external website or IP that could potentially draw users away from Skyblock. Some exceptions include Twitch, Youtube, Crew’s/Cyp's other servers, or other channels. Do not post inappropriate links such as porn, screamers, etc.

    • Posting Malicious Links:
    Do not send links meant to harm anyone. These can include porn, phishing links, links that download keyloggers, screamers, or IP grabbers.

    • DDoS or Account Hacking Threats:
    Do not threaten to DDoS any Skyblock members or services. Do not threaten to hack player accounts.

    • Releasing Private Information and Doxing:
    Do not seek to release or obtain the private information (or the ‘dox’) of anyone on Skyblock. This includes but is not limited to IP addresses, addresses, phone numbers, names, pictures or Skype usernames. The severity of the punishment will be determined by the information released, as follows:

    Real name, IRL photos, family member names, and/or age: 7 day ban
    (This must be reported by the player whose name/photo was released as not all players mind if this information is used.)

    Skype username, any social media username, zip code, place of study or work, and/or town name: 14 day ban

    IP addresses, phone numbers, full dox information, home addresses, email address, and/or passwords: 31 day - perm ban

      • Ban/Mute Evading:
    Do not ban/mute evade or try to get around a ban placed on one of your accounts. If you are given a punishment, you are expected to carry it out like everyone else.

    • Scamming:
    Do not scam any user of Skyblock out of their items, rank, or money.

    Skyblock staff do not refund items that you may be scammed of, so trade at your own risk.

    (If reporting a scam, please be sure that we can clearly see exactly what you are trading for and both players agreeing to the trade in video evidence.)

    • Griefing:
    Griefing is not allowed, however with most reported cases we ask that co-op members solve the issue between themselves. Changing island settings, trusting, and co-oping players is done at your own risk.

    Multiple reported griefs from the same user will result in a 31 day ban, and minor grief punishments vary by moderator.

    Single large griefs will also result in punishment as long as there is evidence that it was truly malicious griefing and not a spat among team members. Killing animals on islands without permission is also considered griefing.

    • Island Farming:
    Island farming is the term used for resetting a new island repeatedly in order to collect the materials (such as lava buckets, sand and dirt) for another island. This is a form of cheating and can lead to a ban along with confiscation of all materials.

    • Inappropriate Names and Skins:
    Do not login to our server with an inappropriate skin or username. Do not /nick yourself an inappropriate name.

    *Note: repeat offences can lead to extended bans and/or a permanent ban*
