Official Network Rules

Last Edited: March 22nd, 2022

As I hope most of you are aware, we are human and we all make mistakes. Our rules are set in place giving guidance to hopefully reduce those mistakes a bit. Even we are not perfect, so it’s not possible for us to list everything that could violate our rules and ask for you to use common sense. If you have to think about if it will be breaking the rules, it probably will be, so don’t do it, or at least ask a staff member before to be safe. If it is something that is illegal on other networks but isn’t explicitly listed here, please do not do it, or ask before doing it. Our staff are trained thoroughly and punishments are given at staff discretion. Additionally, admins can issue punishments for something that is not directly specified if it is seen as malicious to the server, keep in mind these instances are rare. 

Please keep in mind that you are solely responsible for any events which occur on your Minecraft account. We advise you not to share your account with anyone to avoid these issues. Keep passwords and other related information secure and private.

If you are punished and break certain rules, depending on severity, you will receive a deduction. Deductions remove value or stats which help towards leaderboards or payouts. The first deduction is 25% of your value or stats gained by cheating, the second time is 50%, and the third time's a season disqualification. You get 2 warnings (warnings being the deductions) before you are disqualified from participating in leaderboards or payouts. Keep in mind the decisions are at admin discretion and will depend on the severity of the rule you broke. 

Assisting players who are breaking the rules or knowingly benefitting from it is strictly prohibited and will result in punishment. This punishment follows the same path as if it was you breaking the rule. An example is if you are benefitting from somebody else hacking, you would also be banned for the length of a hacking ban. If you already had a hacking ban previously, you would be permanently banned. Faking evidence follows this. If you are falsifying evidence to frame somebody, you will get the same punishment path in which you falsified.

If you are permanently banned in-game you will also be permanently banned in our Discord server. Permanently banned members are not welcomed in our community, so if you are permanently banned, you will be removed to prevent you from causing further issues to our members.

If you wish to appeal a punishment, you may create a ban/mute appeal here: https://forums.mysticalskies.com/appeals/

If you believe you were falsely or unfairly punished or treated, you may report them by creating a staff report ticket here: https://forums.mysticalskies.com/staff-report/

Keep in mind that these rules can and will be updated at any given point. To ensure you are up to date with this information, you will see the specific update in #updates on our Discord server.

Rules are subject to change at any time and punishments will vary based on severity and player history. 

 

Global Mutable Offenses:

Chat offenses are split up into 3 categories based on intent and severity. Small Chat Offenses which are not that serious, Medium Chat Offenses which are more serious and harmful, and finally Prohibited Chat Offenses which are super serious and harmful, Prohibited punishments are usually a permanent punishment, which very rarely will be undone.
