SKYBLOCK FORUMS RULES If you have not read our in-game rules yet or our code of conduct, we strongly recommend that you read them now. You may locate them here and here. The forums has been designed to be a safe and fun area for all members of the community to be in, so we request all users to abide to our rules. Failure to adhere to these rules will result in a punishment and potential permanent removal in severe circumstances. If you have been punished, you can create a new account* and create an appeal here. If you need to report a player, please use the report function or make a thread here. ABUSE OF RATINGS Users are permitted to use ratings to express their thoughts on a post, however it's necessary that players are using this ability correctly. Members who are caught abusing this feature may have their permission revoked. Please see this thread here on rate abuse for further clarification. SWEARING The use of foul language and swearing is not allowed, regardless if it has been censored or not. Conversations are the only exception to this rule, where in some circumstances it is acceptable only if the other members in that chat are not offended by it, or the language is not used in a disrespectful or rude manner. DISRESPECT & HARASSMENT All users are welcome on this forums, at no point should players be disrespected, harassed or singled out. You must be respectful to one another and treat people the way you would like to be treated. Disrespect also includes discrimination, which includes but is not limited to racism, sexism, sexual orientation, beliefs or ethnicity. ADVERTISING No players should mention or advertise other Minecraft servers or forum web pages. You must not post any malicious links, IP addresses or potentially inappropriate content. This includes pornographic links. THREATS Users may not threaten other users or staff members in any form, naming some are blackmailing, DoX, DDoS and death threats. If you are caught joking about such a situation, you will also be punished. INAPPROPRIATENESS Please remain appropriate when you are on the forums, there are younger members of our community and it is important that players respect that. Usernames, profile pictures, signatures and profile banners cannot contain any explicit or inappropriate material which can include nudity, offensive language and any other form of disrespect or discrimination. PERSONAL INFORMATION At no point should a user of Skyblock Forums redistribute the personally identifiable information of another member. This includes, but is not limited to, IP addresses, email accounts, phone numbers and any other private information. Please make sure that you are careful with information you share over the internet. THREAD DERAILMENT Please ensure that you stick with the thread writer's original topic, you should not change the subject or post any off-topic and unnecessary comments. You should only contribute to a thread if it has meaning and is related to the original post. Please see post farming below. POST FARMING Post counts are given out for all messages that you post in threads, with the exception of certain areas of the forums. Any posts that you are sending must be useful and have a purpose, otherwise posting for the sake of gaining more post count is known as post farming. You should not be posting more than once at one time, unless the reasoning for a second post is to bump a thread after a reasonable amount of time. GRAVE-DIGGING The term grave-digging refers to when a member replies to a thread that has exceeded a period of 6 months being untouched. You will no longer be allowed to comment in that thread, unless you are the thread owner or it is in one of the sections exempt from this rule. These sections are News & Announcements, Suggestions, Bug Reports, Report Users, Ban Appeals, Help, Staff Applications, Donor & Donation Issues as well as the Premium Section. PUNISHMENT EVASION If you have an outstanding punishment on your forums account, at no point should you create a new account or use another Skyblock member's account. This may result in your original punishment being extended as well as a lower chance of having an appeal accepted. ALTERNATE ACCOUNTS Users should not have any other active accounts on the forums with the exception of their own main account. *The only reason that having a second account would be allowed is for the purpose of appealing a punishment given out on the forums. You will not be allowed to post out of the ban appeal section. COMMON SENSE Finally, please ensure that you use common sense whilst on our page. If it doesn't feel right don't do it, or if something doesn't look right, please report the content or let the staff team know. Thank you for reading the forum rules and adhering to them. This thread will be updated accordingly to better suit the future Skyblock environment and we will do our best to let you know when we update them.
