    In-game: Players will receive warnings/kick on first offense. Mute may follow if warnings ignored.

    • /Nick Abuse
    Nick abusing is when you take another player's nickname 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.

    In-game: Staff will ask you to change it, if you refuse it will be a 1-3 day ban.

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

    In-Game: Based on context and severity. May result in permanent mute or ban.
    • Advertising:
    Do not advertise any external website or IP that could potentially draw users away from Skyblock. Although, some exceptions include Twitch, Youtube, Crew’s/Cyp's other servers, or other channels.

    In-game: Advertising any IP for the first time will be a month ban.

    In-game: Advertising without an IP address such as saying "Let's play Hypixel" can result in a warn for first offense. If it continues, a mute may occur.

    In-game: Advertising inappropriate links: such as porn or anything of the nature will be a 31 day ban

      • DDoS, DoX or Account Hacking Threats:
    Do not threaten to DoX or DDoS any Skyblock member or server. Do not threaten to hack player accounts.

    In-game: These threats will result in a 7 day ban. Second time will be a 2 week ban. Anymore offenses will be a 31 day ban.

    • Releasing Private Information:
    Do not release private information of anyone on Skyblock. This includes but is not limited to IP addresses, addresses, phone numbers, names, or Skype usernames. The severity of the private information & punishment will be determined by this:

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

    • 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.

    In-game: Ban evasion will result in your alt being banned for the same amount as the main.

    In-game: Mute evasion will cause your account to be banned for the remaining length of the mute.

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

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

    In-game: Scamming will result in a 7 day the first time. The second time will result in a 31 day ban.
    *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 coop members solve the issue between themselves. /trust and /coop users 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 (lava bucket, sand, 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 our server with an inappropriate skin or username.

    In-game: Inappropriate skin/username is a 3 day ban for first offense. Second offense and after is a 31 day

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