SKYBLOCK SERVER RULES The following rules are in place on the server to create a safer experience for all players, these rules apply to all 3 servers - Classic, Economy and Skyblock. If you believe someone has broken one of these rules, please create a report here. Your understanding of the server rules is key for a fair experience for all. If you find yourself punished by breaking any of the rules, view this thread and create an appeal here. If you have any questions or concerns while reading this thread, please contact a staff member and they will be more than happy to assist you. As well as reading our server rules, we also ask that players familiarise themselves with our Code of Conduct here. ABUSING SERVER EXPLOITS AND BUGS Server exploits and/or bugs can be reported in our Bugs & Exploits report section here. Abusing these exploits and/or bugs to your personal advantage will result in punishment. We do not condone any sort of cheating to push oneself further ahead of others. IRL TRADING IRL trading, "in-real life trading", is conducting a trade of ones server items for perks outside of the server, typically real life currency. Trading in-game items for perks on other Noobcrew servers is allowed. If caught planning this or having done this, players will be punished accordingly. This act is against Minecraft's EULA Agreement. You can view it here under "One Major Rule." Examples of IRL trading are trading in-game items for real life currency, trading in-game items for Minecraft accounts, or trading in-game items for perks in other games unrelated to Skyblock. You can view a full list of things classified as IRL trading here. GRIEFING Griefing is the act of destroying blocks or egging on another player's island with the intent of causing damage. Players will be punished for griefing according to the intensity of the grief as determined by Staff Members. Griefing can be done physically (manual destruction), technically (through the creation of redstone contraptions for destruction), or with the use of illegal hacks (read our list of legal and illegal hacks here). An example of said redstone contraptions are flying machines. Due to the constant abuse of flying machines, the creation or possession of any sort of flying machine is forbidden and will result in the destruction of said machine. Punishments will be granted whether damage is caused by the flying machine or not. ** LOOTING Looting includes taking items on another player's island with the intent of keeping them for your own personal use. Players will be punished for looting according to the intensity of the loot as determined by server logs. It is highly recommended to be cautious with the players you trust or co-op with. Private chests help limit loots from occurring if they are limited to only one player (please click here for a tutorial on lockette). ** SCAMMING Scamming is the act of one player suggesting a trade to another and either a) taking the items and leaving or b) completing the trade, but having ripped the other player off. To prevent scamming from occurring, it is highly recommended that a Staff Member watches over your trade and confirms the trade with all parties. If a Staff Member is unable to watch the trade, if possible, trade via tradeshop (click here for a tutorial on tradeshops), record the entirety of the trade (must include the agreement on the deal and the deal must be shown along with the items being thrown and the other player taking them and leaving) or take a series of screenshots (also including the agreement on the deal and the deal must be shown along with the items being thrown and the other player taking them and leaving). ** PLAYER KILLING Player killing is when you have killed another user, usually for their items or for trolling purposes. It is commonly seen in skin competitions to eliminate players. If you are subject to this, we unfortunately are unable to refund your items that may have fallen into the void. ALTERNATE ACCOUNT LIMIT We have created a limit to how many accounts one player can have online at once. You may not have any more than two accounts on Economy or four accounts on Skyblock at once. This includes the account you are using and one other account. ISLAND FARMING Island farming is the act of repeatedly creating new islands to gather more items for your own personal advantage . Island farming will result in a punishment and all of the farmed items will be confiscated from your possession. Island trading is classified as another form of island farming if done incorrectly. In order to trade islands with another player, you must have a Staff Member check the island and remove all illegal items that do not come with the original starter island. By trading an island without having it approved, you risk getting banned for island farming if the islands were traded with more illegal items than the starter island provides (click here for a full list of illegal items). ILLEGAL TRADING You must not trade items classified as illegal on the Skyblock servers. You can view a full list of illegal items to own and trade here. ILLEGAL HACKING Some hacks are allowed on Skyblock, as long as they do not give you an unfair advantage. Be mindful when making the decision to hack and read through this thread to make sure you hack legally. ADVERTISING Advertising is the act of informing others of a server not affiliated with any of Noobcrew's servers. If you are caught advertising any servers that are not under Noobcrew's name, it will result in a punishment. BLACKMAIL AND THREATS Blackmailing and/or threatening others is strictly forbidden. Blackmailing and/or threatening others is typically seen in the forms of doxing, violent messages, or death threats. Breaking this rule will result in an immediate punishment and potentially permanent removal from the server. INAPPROPRIATE BUILDS Inappropriate builds are any player-built structures or map art that are of any inappropriate topics. Examples of these topics include, but are not limited to, inappropriate visuals, racial slurs, vulgar language, and symbols associated with major world events that may be sensitive. Inappropriate builds will result in a punishment and the destruction of the build(s). INAPPROPRIATE USERNAMES/SKINS Inappropriate usernames and/or skins will result in an immediate removal from the server until the username and/or skin is changed. Examples of inappropriate usernames are usernames that promote other servers, contain vulgar language, or target sensitive and inappropriate topics. Examples of inappropriate skins are skins that contain inappropriate visuals, relate to major world events or historical leaders that are reminded of sensitive and potentially offensive subjects, or contain racial slurs. The examples provided are simply provided for further understanding and are not the only examples of inappropriate usernames and/or skins. INAPPROPRIATE AND DISRESPECTFUL COMMENTS Inappropriate and/or disrespectful comments are comments made to taunt ones race, religion, nationality, sexual orientation, gender, personal values, beliefs, or ethnicity. These comments include, but are not limited to, sexual subjects, potentially offensive subjects, potentially sensitive subjects, or hateful subjects. Respect should be given to every player on the server despite our differences, and any comments made with the intent of circling someone out or making someone uncomfortable will result in punishment. MALICIOUS LINKS Malicious links are links containing explicit material. Examples of malicious links include, but are not limited to, pornographic material and IP grabbers (e.g free capes). We advise all players to be cautious before clicking on any links shared on the server. NICKNAME ABUSE Nickname abuse, commonly known as nick abuse, is the action of setting your nickname to impersonate another player without their consent or setting your nickname to inappropriate or offensive words. Players who break this rule will be asked to change their nickname. If they choose to ignore the request, further punishments will be given. Staff impersonation falls under this rule. Do not change your nickname to match a Staff Member's name without their permission. Confusion will arise in chat and the Staff Member will have a much harder time assisting players. CHAT OFFENCES Users should not spam, flood or be rude in chat. You should also not create fake messages as this is against our rules and counts as trolling. FALSE REPORTING False reporting is the act of forging and manipulating evidence to appeal to the report you are making. It is typically used with the intent of getting another player punished. If a report is created with false evidence, the player who created the report will be punished. PUNISHMENT EVASION Evading punishments is where you use alternate accounts to bypass punishments given on a separate account. Staff Members will punish all accounts equally if you evade your punishment and could potentially increase the punishment time on all accounts. ** Please note that if you are a victim of someone breaking any of the rules, we cannot guarantee a full recovery of the things you have lost. We will do our best to refund you the lost items, but we are not always able to find everything. Please be cautious with who you trust and/or co-op on your island. If you are afraid of any valuable items being stolen from you, we highly recommend creating a private chest (click here to learn how). This thread will continue to be updated to the current Skyblock environment. Staff will inform players when the thread is modified.
