Forum/Website Rules
Punishment duration for forum/website rules depends on staff decisions and the severity of the issue. It can be anywhere from a "discouragement" and/or content takedown to a permanent ban.

Links, particularly those related to scams or fraudulent activities, should not appear on the forum platform. If you receive a link from an untrusted source, refrain from clicking on it and promptly contact a staff member. We will investigate the link further to ensure its safety and legitimacy. To report such incidents or user-related issues, please utilize the "Contact Us" feature or report the user and/or user content to the moderators. Our team will promptly address the matter and take appropriate action.

  11. Engaging in hacking or exploiting activities is strictly prohibited. Users are strictly prohibited from attempting to hack into administrative systems, user accounts, private conversations, or engaging in any similar unauthorized activities. While our forum software incorporates built-in protection against hacking and DDoS attacks, it may not be entirely infallible. Please be aware that hacking can result in a ban of up to 30 days while attacking our servers will lead to a permanent ban from the platform.

Minecraft Server Global Rules

Many of the punishment lengths are purposefully vague so precedent and staff discretion can be more easily used, allowing staff members to adapt punishments as time goes by, rather than being bound by arbitrary rules created with limited knowledge of the reality they intend to dictate. Words such as “short” and “long” about punishment duration are extremely relative; for example, a “short” punishment for breaking one rule may be a 5-minute mute, while a “short” punishment for a different rule may be a month-long temp ban.

  • The punishments follow the following general formula:
    Offense committed: punishment for first offense -> second offense -> … -> nth offense

  • If you see a “<->”, this means the punishments on either side of that symbol may be used for the same number of offenses (i.e. first offense, second offense, etc.) depending upon the severity of that offense.

1. Using modded clients - Optifine, Shaders, and other mods which improve gameplay is allowed.
- Speed mods (Nuker, Fast Break, Fast Mine): warning -> 1-2 month temp ban
