    Official Skybounds Server/Discord/Forums Rules List
    This list is our official server/discord/forums list of rules HOWEVER this list for Skybounds may change at any time, to add or remove statements or overall rules written here. This list will be kept up-to-date and may shift around depending on any new instances that may occur throughout our seasons and with our community.

    As our TOS states: The Community Manager (as well as any management team member) may punish with discretion at any time, and do NOT need to follow the same protocol as staff depending on the situation presented. These punishments will only be used when surrounding major situations or no other option may be optimal to use. If you find any issues with a punishment given to yourself, please make a support ticket to discuss said situation with the Community Manager. File a support ticket here: [Support Ticket]

    Abusing Exploits
    > Abusing exploits means using any type of bug or unintentional game aspect to your advantage. An exploit or bug used within the server that is of unintentional design, to gain any advantage over other community members, is seen as an unfair advantage and is not allowed.

    > Using any type of bug or feature that is not meant to be in the game can be viewed as abusing and will often allow you to have an unfair advantage in game play, you are knowingly abusing a bug that should not be in-game and will be held responsible for your actions.

    > This is not allowed as said bug or feature should have never been in the game to begin with and this is why we require our community to report any type of feature or aspect they believe to be a bug. So that the management team can test appropriately and have our developer fix anything that should NOT be ingame.

    > An example would be; seeing someone report a bug in global and then acting upon it to test it, upon finding that the bug works- you continue to use it to make an illegitimate profit.

    Such things can include:
    -Using Knockback as it is currently bugged.
    -Using lag to attempt to dupe items.
    -Freezing your minecraft client in the void of warzone.
    -Block glitching in warzone to gain advantage.
    -Creating lag machines or attempting to abuse the proxy connections.


    Abuse of /report
    > There is a /report function ingame to alert staff of potential rulebreakers in a private way that only staff can see, players may use this command at their discretion if they believe another play is violating any rules or need to be known to the staff team.

    > If using this command in ANY other form/spamming it from its intended use, can be classed as abusing the command and be punished as such. This command should only be used to alert staff of players causing issues, it should not be used for joking around.

    > An example would be that a player is using kill aura- and so as community you report them for it using /report (IGN) Killaura. < this is an allowed use of /report. However if you are angry one day and dislike someone or something on the server and decide to troll staff using /report QueenRose_ Your server is rubbish!!!!! < This is not allowed and you will be punished for using the command.

    Account sharing and security
    > Account sharing and security means your login details, security questions, your login email or password or any backup links/codes you may have connected to your minecraft account. You are held solely responsible for your account and the details and whom you share them with.

    > We advise against sharing accounts/account details. You are held responsible for including who is linked to your alt list and what those players may also do on the server. If someone uses your account whom you have given the details to, there is nothing we can do and if they cause issues whilst on your account. Your account will be held responsible and be punished for the actions.

    > An example would be that you decide to give either a discord account or minecraft account to your friend- believing that they would either talk to people in a clan disc for you or claim your kits ingame. However as a prank your friend decides to threaten players on your account and then your account gets punished for it. Your account would be held responsible due to the actions that has occurred via your account.

    Advertising other server IP's and platforms
    > Talking about servers MAY be allowed depending on the conversation or context, however sharing direct server IPs, links or platforms will not be allowed.

    > We like to keep skybounds exclusive and isolated from other servers and thus should not allow our community to share other servers (pvpwars may be allowed, as our owners own pvpwars HOWEVER we still do not want our community sharing the server IP, discord links, forums links etc).

    > If another player asks, you may send them another server’s information via pm’s. HOWEVER, if you are found spamming it, or giving it to players who did not request it- you will be punished for your actions.

    > An example would be that a player sends another server's IP in global chat, this will result in a punishment. Similar to if a player sends another server’s official discord link into our discord or server.

    Advertising media content and platforms
    > Advertising any form of video, image or GIF should be kept appropriate. Any videos shared must relate to skybounds only, and any images or links that relate to skybounds achievements must be posted in #premium-showcase.

    > You can send links in game to your video, stream or channel only if you are VIP or YouTube rank. If you are not VIP or YouTube rank, you will be punished for Media Advertisements. However if you do not have the rank’s and want to announce you are streaming, feel free to announce what platform you are streaming on and your name on said platform.

    > Everyone must not share discord links, youtube links or twitch links UNLESS you are streaming/recording skybounds content in which they can post in #premium-showcase however if you are found sharing content that is not skybounds related, you will be punished.

    > An example would include that you are streaming but are not VIP and still want to let global chat know. And so you announce that you are ‘streaming skybounds on twitch under the name of QueenRose_!’ < This is allowed. However this is not allowed: ‘Im streaming www.twitch.tv/twilight_rose56!’ And will be punishable.

    Avatars and Profile pictures
    > Profiles pictures on all platforms need to remain appropriate, meaning they should not contain explicit, sensitive or politically sensitive content. These may include but are not limited to: Pornographic content, Discriminatory content, Sensitive topics. We also do not allow media advertising within the image/animated video.

    > An example would include an image of a porn star, a sensitive self harm/murder image, any images that promote violence or well known people that have those standards (Hilter, terrorist groups, Rapists etc).

    Auction House Trolling
    > Auction House Trolling is when a player may list an item for an absurd price and lure players into buying the item without looking, often in a rush to buy the item at such a low price. It may also be that a player items a less valuable item that is a replica of a valued, expensive items and ah’s it and then announces in chat to quickly buy it- and without looking properly the player purchases it due to it being a low price on ah thinking it is a major item.

    > Auction House Trolling requires both a screenshot of the listing and a screenshot of the play advertising their listing in global chat for staff to then be able to punish, unless the player has then admitted to scamming you in private messages (this will also be acceptable for evidence).

    > An example would include a player saying in chat: ‘selling this boost gem for one star!’ and then auctioning the boost gem for 10 million stars instead. Another example would be that a player lists a skydrop on ah and announces in chat that ‘a boost gem in on ah for 10,000 stars!’ and so a player rushes to buy the ‘boost gem’ to find that it was a skydrop with a high price tag.

    Admitting to Hacking
    > Admitting to hacking can mean anything from jokes, to saying what hack you are using, or you telling players in private that you are hacking. Admitting to hacking should not be allowed on the server at all even as a joke, as it's a serious offence and a major rule for us to enforce.

    > Admitting to hacking is looked upon similarly to our Hacking offence, as both equal to an unfair advantage for players. Any time of jokes made about hacking or admitting to hacking may be re-reviewed and the punishment length shortened though depending on what was said, the context and the overall situation.

    > An example would include you being bored one day and after dueling with a friend you announce in global chat that: ‘My auto clicker made me win!’. This even though may be a joke- would still fall under the category of Admitting to Hacking.

    Admitting to Duping
    > Admitting to duping can mean anything from jokes, to saying what dupe you are using, or you telling players in private that you are duping. Admitting to duping should not be allowed on the server at all even as a joke, as it's a serious offence and a major rule for us to enforce.

    > Admitting to duping is looked upon similarly to our duping offence, as both equal to an unfair advantage for players and a major risk to the server. Any time of jokes made about duping or admitting to duping may be re-reviewed and the punishment length shortened though depending on what was said, the context and the overall situation.

    Accessory to Hacking
    > Accessory to hacking is where you team with a hacker, aid a hacker or overall give an island and be friendly to a hacker. This however can be worrying for a player if they did not know a player was hacking and hence why we do an extensive search first before removing any players.

    > Anyone that is found inviting known hackers to their island to help aid them with kits, pvp items or money etc can be also held responsible alongside the hackers that we catch. If you are also found teaming with hackers in the warzone or can be found in the same clan/connected to them via /alts- you can also be held responsible.

    > An example would include seeing a hacker in warzone and clearly hacking, instead of /reporting you team with the hacker and use them to gather items for you (or vice versa).

    Bug Testing and Using
    > Much like bug abusing, Bug Testing and Using should not be done unless an admin is present with you and/or have asked you to recreate it. These may be in times where we need to view how the bug can be re-created to then verify evidence and then make a solution to fix it.

    > If you are found using a bug without permission it can lead to a lot of issues, including: punishment, stat reset, money reset, island reset etc. Using a bug without permission can also link to bug abusing as you will be caught using it without staff knowledge.

    > An example would include that you find a bug, and make a bug report. However, you feel that you would like to either use it more or attempt to find other ways to recreate it. Without asking admins for permission to do so, you continue to do it anyway in secret. Admins find your island and find that you've been using the bug, this then leads in a player profile reset.
    [Bug Reports]

    Blacklisted Modifications
    > Blacklisted modifications are clients and modifications that have blacklisted properties within them. We allow players to use clients and modifications however have a set of rules to follow to ensure that everyone does not have any unfair advantages.

    > Anyone found using blacklisted clients or modifications will be removed from our platforms. Modifications can range from FPS enhancements and visual improvements right through to gameplay altering ones. Please keep in mind that not all modifications are allowed on the server, please read our blacklisted modifications guide for any information on allowed or disallowed modifications.

    > An example would be that you send staff a screenshot attempting to show a player breaking a rule. Staff review your evidence and find that you have health indicators enabled and thus you as well as the player being reported are handled.
    [Blacklisted Clients]

    Bullying, Harassment and Blackmail
    > Bullying and harassment are classed as making rude comments continuously, targeting a player or overall going out of your way to make another player feel sad, down or isolated from the rest of the community. Blackmail is where someone uses leverage (often screenshots, videos or private information about someone) to force the targeted person to do something otherwise they will release the information.

    > If anyone is found bullying, harassing or blackmailing community members, they will be immediately removed on all platforms and the community overall depending on how serious the case is, as it can be deemed a threat to the safety of our community.

    > An example would be that you have a screenshot of a player admitting something highly private, and as fun you tell them you will release the screenshot unless they buy you loot crates- This is blackmail, and harassment and will NOT be tolerated at all on our server.
    [Player Reports]

    Buying accounts
    > Buying or attempting to rent the use of a minecraft account on our platforms counts as ‘IRL Soliciting’. Please refer to the rule ‘IRL Soliciting’ to find out more about what the rule is and the punishment guidelines that surround it.

    Bot Raiding and Spamming
    > Bots are alt/void accounts controlled by one person to often cause issues, lag or overall be an inconvenience. We have seen in the past where players often get bots in-game to spam or lag an area out, as well as on our discord spamming paragraphs of gibberish to crash the community discord.

    > If the player responsible is found or you are able to be linked back to the bot attack, you will also be removed along with all the bot accounts too- to insure the safety of our community and to stop the issues from arising again.

    Chargebacks
    > Chargebacks are where you make a payment on our store, and then once receiving the item in-game you tell paypal that you did NOT receive it in-game and thus try to refund your money.

    > When you chargeback, you will be IP banned from our server AS WELL AS buycraft, and thus cannot buy anything on any other server that uses buycraft on their store. This is not only against TOS for both our server, and Buycraft as a platform, but also is a legal accusation which is false if you originally received your items ingame.

    > An example would be that you buy three loot crates, you open all three and then decide you didn’t like what you got inside of them. So you go to paypal and request a refund on the items you ‘did not receive’, which leads you to be IP banned on buycraft and our server.
    [Support Tickets]

    Communication and Language
    > Being a public server, we welcome players across the world to come join in on the fun. We wholeheartedly understand that a variety of you all may speak different languages, however, Skybounds resides in North America and thus prefers English to be the primary spoken language.

    > Please keep in mind that you may be asked to further your discussions in private chats so that staff may continue to moderate our server platforms as needed. Considering not everyone on the staffing team speaks languages outside of English, we do enforce this rule so that we can continue to monitor the well being of our community.

    > An example would be that you are talking with your German friends, and a lot of players start to talk German, meaning the server can no longer be moderated. Our staff ask you to move to an alternative chat however you and your friends ignore them and continue to spam in German for fun.

    Custom Punishments
    > Our Admins and Managers (Including our developer) may use a custom punishment if your actions are borderline or becoming an issue but do not fall under any other punishment categories.

    > In most cases our admins will need to follow the evidence protocol much like our staff do, however in some cases they may have the manager’s permission to custom punish a player if deemed necessary and the player’s actions are serious enough to do so.

    > If players have too many mutes, or bans on their record- we will handle them further by giving them a punishment called ‘1+ Page of mutes’ and so on. This is due to them having an abundance of violations already on their record, that we would then prefer to give them a last chance system- 3+ Page of mutes will result in a permanent mute which will be hard to appeal from.

    > Disclaimer:
    We may also use discord evidence if deemed serious enough or necessary, however checks will be run on the evidence and if found forged at all; the player who has submitted said evidence will be held responsible.
    [Player Appeals]

    DOXX Threats
    > DOXX threats are when you obtain private information about a person illegally on the internet to use with malicious intent, this is both against our server’s rules and is illegal in most countries and hence treated very seriously.

    > An example would include you getting angry at a player for killing you in the warzone and so you threaten to find their home address and send it in global chat.

    DDOS Threats
    > DDOS threats are ‘achieving or threatening a DOSS attack where compromised systems are used to target a single system causing them a denial of service attack. This is both against our server’s rules and is illegal in most countries and hence treated very seriously.

    > An example would include that you log onto the server and dislike the new season, and so threaten to hack into the server and close it using DDOS.

    Discrimination
    > Discrimination can be words, statements or political sayings that can target certain groups of people: gender, race, ethicity, disability or religion. The most common discrimination we tend to face is race and gender on our server which is immediatly removed.

    > Examples include:
    Age Discrimination. Disability Discrimination. Sexual Orientation. Religious Discrimination. National Origin. Race, Color, and Sex.

    > Disclaimer:
    Even using the discriminatory terms against yourself in chat, is still punishable. We do not want certain terms used as all within our chat, and that is why you can still be punished if you discriminate against yourself.

    Disrespect
    > We ask that you always remain respectful when talking to anyone on our platforms. We would like to keep the community free of disrespectful and inappropriate comments. You need to stay aware of how to treat others on our platforms. Speak kindly to each other and treat people how you would like to be treated. General banter is fine but disrespectful behavior is not allowed.

    > Even though we do not have a formal ‘Disrespect’ punishment any more, it can still fall under the rules: ‘Bully, Harassment and Blackmail’ or ‘Disregarding Chat Rules’ as well as being custom punished in most cases depending on the player and context.

    > This also goes for our staff and our server platforms, any major disrespect towards staff or the server may be handled as a separate case and you will be removed from our community due to causing issues and ignoring staff warnings.

    > An example would include you being angry at a player and constantly arguing with them in chat, staff ask you both to stop and the other player does- however you keep going to try and get a reaction out of them. You are not only then disrespecting the player but also staff warnings.

    Discussing punishments and sharing private information about incidents
    > Any discussion of a players punishment should only be discussed in the appropriate appeals area on the forums. Any discussion of punishments outside of the specified area will not be allowed.

    >The same goes with sharing private information about incidents. Players are asked to keep information about sensitive incidents or punishments to themselves and not disclose this information to public view. This can be classed as a breach of privacy depending on the type of incident that is being shared. If evidence is found to be massly spread around as well as information regarding a player’s punishment- we have a right to revoke our help depending on the situation.

    Disregarding Chat Rules (Linked to Language AND Staff Disrespect)
    > Disregarding chat rules means that players are continually disregarding a staff member’s request to change topics in chat or maintaining english in global chat (Please Refer to Rule on Communication and Language).

    > Players need to respect when a staff member asks for topics to be changed/english to be used in global. Anyone continually disregarding what staff are requesting will be punished accordingly. Please note, if you feel a staff member’s request does not adhere to the outlined server rules, please feel free to report them via the forums.

    > An example would include that you are talking with your German friends, and a lot of players start to talk German, meaning the server can no longer be moderated. Our staff ask you to move to an alternative chat however you and your friends ignore them and continue to spam in German for fun.

    Discord Punishments
    > Any punishment given on discord is either stated within the rules here, or will follow the guidelines for the server punishments. Our rules in-game translate onto our forums and discord as well, meaning that all time lengths are the same as well as what rules we enforce. Discord rules can also be found within #information and any custom punishments may be appeal-able.

    Discord Status’
    > Profiles status’ on all platforms need to remain appropriate, meaning they should not contain explicit, sensitive or politically sensitive content. These may include but are not limited to: Pornographic content, Discriminatory content, Sensitive topics. We also do not allow media advertising within the status.

    > An example would include any reference of a porn star, a sensitive self harm/murder case, any statements or quotes that promote violence or well known people that have those standards (Hilter, terrorist groups, Rapists etc).

    Discord Activity
    > Profiles activity ‘now playing…’ on all platforms need to remain appropriate, meaning they should not contain explicit, sensitive or politically sensitive content. These may include but are not limited to: Pornographic content, Discriminatory content, Sensitive topics. We also do not allow media advertising within the activity bar.

    > An example would include any reference of a porn star, a sensitive self harm/murder case, any statements or quotes that promote violence or well known people that have those standards (Hilter, terrorist groups, Rapists etc).

    Evading Punishments
    > Even though we do not always punish for evading a punishment/violation. Any player found evading a major punishment (Some examples include but are not limited to: Duping, Chargebacks, Mass Hacking, Mass DDOS/DOXX Threats, Malicious intent etc) will be immediately removed from our community and if found continuously attempting to evade- will be blacklisted from our platforms.

    File sharing and posting links (Refer to Advertising media content and platforms)
    > Any files, links or videos need to remain appropriate, and need to relate to pg13 and skybounds (unless context suggests otherwise, or you have been given permission to post).

    > Players shouldnt post any inappropriate links in chat. Any links connected to pornographic websites, drug uses or discriminatory are not prohibited. Players also should not post malicious links in chat. Any links connected to scamming, fraud or ip grabbing is not prohibited and will be dealt with accordingly.

    Forging and Editing Evidence
    > Even though we accept evidence from players who report: situations, other players and instances to us, we check all evidence the best we can to ensure nothing has been forged or edited. However if a player is found to edit or forge a screenshot or video and pass it to staff to handle, this can be viewed as malicious intent and the player who reported originally will be held responsible.

    Giveaways
    > We ask that only our VIP and YOUTUBER roles do official giveaways, as well as our own official skybounds giveaways (Drop parties done by the CM, Discord giveaways or Twitter giveaways).

    > The above being said, a player can make a support ticket if they wish to do an official giveaway and the CM will then further assist and set the giveaway up for the player. If you still wish to do a giveaway via your own content (without having the VIP or YOUTUBER role) please DO NOT announce it at all on any of our platforms, and we cannot be held responsible if the player hosting the giveaway attempts to scam you at all.
    [Support Tickets]

    Griefing and Insiding Islands
    > Any major griefing or insiding of an island is not tolerated within our community. If you have evidence of a user griefing your or any islands please make a player report. That being said, you are responsible for your own island. We advise not inviting any user to your island that you do not know or trust.

    > You will need a lot of evidence to prove a player has griefed or insided your island, and may also require any evidence of the accused player admitting to their actions. However, only the CM/Admins may handle these cases and we deem what is ‘Major’ when reviewing the case, we have a right to turn the report down if we feel it is not a big enough situation to have us then step in and handle.

    Hacking and Unfair Advantages
    > Use of clients, resource packs, or any program/modification that modify your gaming experience in a way that would give you an unfair advantage over the rest of the player base, against other players or staff will result in immediate removal from our platform.

    > Hackusating, whilst not directly punishable- you will still be asked to stop if you are found doing it. This is due to us staff wanting every ‘report’ to be made via /report instead of in chat, this may alert the hacker and allow them time to toggle off their hacks before staff can gather the required evidence to remove the player.

    > Examples include but is not limited to: AFK mining, scripting/botting, holding mouse down to afk-mine, or any mouse hardware that includes an auto clicker or macros other than chat macros, pvp-hacks, flight-hacks etc.

    Inappropriate Island Builds
    > We ask players to keep builds on islands appropriate to our server. To note: Dance Clubs/Night Clubs are allowed to be built, but must adhere to general PG13 rules. The Owner is held responsible, unless the player is actively building it- then both the owner and player will be punished.

    > Examples include but are not limited to: Inappropriate builds involving signs or physical builds that resemble any form of genitalia, exotic dancing, drug usage/selling, or anything else that resembles sexualization is prohibited.

    Inappropriate Island Builds Major
    > These builds can be extremely offensive, sensitive topics and in some cases harmful depending on what is built. Those found building such things will be punished accordingly. Owner is held responsible, unless the player is actively building it- then both the owner and player will be punished.

    > Examples include but are not limited to: Any island builds that resembles discriminatory, racial, homophobic, terrorism, or any other majorly offensive topics will not be tolerated at all.

    Inappropriate Names (Forums Name, Discord Name, Ingame Name, Clan Name)
    > Profiles names on all platforms need to remain appropriate, meaning they should not contain explicit, sensitive or politically sensitive content. These may include but are not limited to: Pornographic content, Discriminatory content, Sensitive topics. We also do not allow media advertising within the IGN or forums/discord name.

    > An example would include any reference of a porn star, a sensitive self harm/murder case, any statements or quotes that promote violence or well known people that have those standards (Hilter, terrorist groups, Rapists etc).

    Inappropriate Player Skin and Cape
    > Profiles skins or capes need to remain appropriate, meaning they should not contain explicit, sensitive or politically sensitive content. These may include but are not limited to: Pornographic content, Discriminatory content, Sensitive topics. We also do not allow media advertising within the cape or skin.

    > An example would include any reference of a porn star, a sensitive self harm/murder case, any statements or quotes that promote violence or well known people that have those standards (Hilter, terrorist groups, Rapists etc).

    Inappropriate Language and Inappropriate Comments
    > Inappropriate Language can be considered either Sexual and explicit talk, excessive swearing or overall inappropriate comments/topics. We are a PG13 server, and whilst we like to allow our community to discuss mature topics (within reason), we must also ensure they do not become too inappropriate for all age ranges that we host to.

    > An example would include you discussing your sexual life, and being rather explicit about it. Any talk on sex, drugs, sensitive topics will be reviewed and either asked to stop discussing or ask to move away from the topic currently being spoken on.

    IRL Soliciting Attempted/ IRL Soliciting
    > We do not allow the advertising of selling / trading server related goods for IRL or other community material. Anyone that is found selling or attempting to trade off Skybounds specific resources for IRL related goods will be removed from the community. This also goes for anyone soliciting materials from other third party providers for IRL goods and services.

    > An example would include you wanting to get a lootcrate and so offer hypixel skyblock items to then trade for a lootcrate on skybounds. This is one possibility of IRL Soliciting, out of the many listed above.

    Releasing Personal or Private Information
    > It is the players responsibility to keep their personal information to themselves, and that any information shared is at their own risk. We cannot stop players from using the information that you release unless in dire or major situations.

    Scamming and Stealing (Linked to Griefing and Insiding Islands)
    > Any major scamming or stealing of an island or player is not tolerated within our community. If you have evidence of a user scamming or stealing from you or any islands please make a player report. That being said, you are responsible for your own island. We advise not inviting any user to your island that you do not know or trust, and to only use the main methods of trade (Ah, /trade) or ensure to record a communal agreement on the trade and then the trade itself.

    > You will need a lot of evidence to prove a player has scammed you, and may also require any evidence of the accused player admitting to their actions. However, only the CM/Admins may handle these cases and we deem what is ‘Major’ when reviewing the case, we have a right to turn the report down if we feel it is not a big enough situation to have us then step in and handle.

    Staff Impersonation
    > Impersonating any member of staff is not allowed on the server. Staff are here to assist players in the community and have the proper permissions to assist players with issues. You are able to tell different staff members based on the color of their ranks ingame, on discord and the tags on forums. Anyone found attempting to impersonate any member of staff will be punished accordingly by the admin team.

    Spam
    > Spam is defined as sending multiple messages or the same message in a short period of time OR in large amounts. We ask players to not spam chats with the same phrases, long strings of characters or in any other regard, doing this floods the chat and can also take away from the ability of players to have questions answered and makes it difficult for staff to effectively monitor chat.

    > An example is that you are impatient and want to get as many bids as you can in a short period of time, and so you keep spamming [item] and ignore staff warnings. If this is causing issues in chat, or staff have asked you to stop and yet you have carried on- you will be punished.

    Spamming Forums appeals
    > Spamming appeals includes making multiple appeals on the same punishments at one time OR making multiple appeals within a short time on the same punishment. We ask players to wait at least a week between each appeal, if a player is spamming appeals it will lead to removal from the forums.

    Streaming in public channels
    > We allow streaming in our public voice calls as long as it follows the rest of our rules, it cannot display any other server except skybounds, must not show any inappropriate content nor sensitive subjects.

    Verbal Abuse and Death Threats (Originally separated with Death Threats, BOTH are now considered Verbal Abuse)
    > Verbal Abuse and Death Threats have recently merged together to form just Verbal Abuse. Any threats that seem alarming or an overall out-of-game threat, you will be removed immediately from our community. We want our community to have a safe space and will continue to feel safe when on all of our platforms, we do not stand for any type of threat.

    > An example would be that you threaten a player’s life due to losing your temper about being killed in the warzone, even though in the moment you made the comment and most likely do not mean it- you still have said and and must understand the effect it may have on the person you threatened.

    VPN Usage
    > VPN is an add-on client that you download in order to ‘scatter’ your IP. Players often use VPN as a safety barrier to other online users as protection from DOXXing or attempted DDOSing. It also allows players who may have connection issues (due to IP syncing, WIFI routers or blocked areas) to be able to join the server and play without the limitations that they once faced.

    > We highly suggest that you only use VPN if you truly require it. VPN usage can connect your account to other malicious accounts and thus leave you banned due to said connection. VPN does not allow you to evade serious punishments due to our management staff system though, and will not be effective for you to use in order to evade or ‘hide’ from major punishments.

    > Using a VPN is currently up to the player only and you will be held solely responsible if you get connected to a list of banned alternative accounts attached to your username, with any punishments that may follow it.

    > An example would be connecting to alternative accounts that may be punished for Chargebacks, Duping, DOXXing/DDOSing, mass hacking or another compromised account/situation.

    Withholding Information and Evidence
    > Any member of the community found with knowledge of anyone breaking the rules, or any major situations that do NOT come forward and report the situation using the forums or a higher-up’s discord private messages can be found as withholding information. Similar with withholding evidence, if a player refuses to report someone but has the evidence to do so and the matter is serious, may also be removed from our platforms until they give the evidence to staff as it is a breach of community safety.

    > An example of this would be that you have received evidence from a clan member that shows another clan member breaking a serious rule on the server. Instead of reporting this to staff, you keep it quiet and discuss with the clan instead and whilst being discussed a staff member finds out this information. If you refuse to explain the situation that is now clear to the staff member you are withholding information, and will be held responsible for your actions- deeming you equally guilty as the member that broke the rules.
