    Alright, first of all thanks Noob and devs for the new rules.

    Over the past few days I've heard players say "New players don't know there are /rules", which is um... Half true half an excuse for their rule-breaking actions.

    This can be easily fixed. How?
    Make /rules show up in chat the first time you log in.

    Disclaimer: This will not show up every single time you log in, just the first time.

    I think if the rules displayed in chat the first time your logged on there would be too much to read for new players. Would prefer if the motd message when joining skyblock server included "Type /rules to view the rules"

    Good idea. Players could also be reminded of the rules when creating a new island

    Creating a new Island or first joining the server?

    My idea was that when you first join the server rules display automatically in chat, but it would also be a good idea that when you make a new island you get a reminder like "Type /rules to get the server rules" as BillOP said.

    Leeeroieee - is this possible?

    Yea, or a message after an island is created that is "Try not to trade dirt, sand or buckets, they are bannable. (Be Careful)"

    Agreed, but instead of TRY not to trade, I'd say DO NOT trade

    when new players join the server and have not created island, how are they supposed to know what half of the stuff means? there should be a broadcast saying type /rules to they the rules or similar

    I saw something with obsidian. When your lava turns into obsidian it makes a message appear in the center of your screen telling you how to get lava back. I think when people break dirt or sand for the first time on their island, it should make a similar message. Or when they use a bucket for the first time too.

    Support. I have personally dealt with quite a few cases in which the player was not even aware that they broke a rule. I believe this is partly due to the fact that these more obscure rules that are not in place on other servers can be easily missed if the player doesn't bother to interact in chat and would rather play on their own for the most part. Especially with the addition of /quiet, it is much easier to ignore chat, aside from server announcements. It can't hurt to add this.
