Global Rules
These rules apply globally on the Skycade server.

Bans

  • No Hacking
All forms of hacks are not allowed. Any client capable of hacking is not allowed and considered Malicious hacks in cases where no hacks are enabled, or client chat spam is used (explained further under Mutes). Admitting to hacks in chat can get you banned for having a client. If you confirm to a staff member (this includes builders) you have a client or have broken a rule, it is sufficient to ban. Knowingly playing with a hacker (ex. being in the same faction, actively working with them in pvp, sharing xrayed resources, etc) is also counted as a ban for Hacker Accomplice, equal to the same length of the initial hacker's ban. This accomplice time generally can be reduced under the staff's discretion based on the severity of the initial hacker's ban.

Malicious Hacks are defined as giving a PVP or PVE advantage.
The following constitutes as Malicious Hacks:
  • KillAura
  • AntiKB
  • Bhop
  • Chat Client Spam
  • Any general client
  • Many other hacks not mentioned
Non-Malicious Hacks are defined as hacks that give little advantage but are still not allowed.
The following constitutes as Non-Malicious Hacks:
  • Derp
  • Headless
  • Ping Spoof
  • Scaffold
  • Many other hacks not mentioned

Note: Any clicking method such as butterfly clicking, jitter clicking, and others similar to them may result in a ban. These clicking methods are not advised.

  • No Faking Hacks
Faking hacks is the same ban as regular hacking. Saying in chat “I’m hacking” or otherwise attempting to “prove” you are hacking is a ban for hacking whether or not you actually were.
  • No Bug Abuse or Unapproved Mods
Bug Abuse is the usage of bugs in Minecraft or plugins to have an advantage over other players. All bugs that are found should be reported and not abused. All Bug Abuse follows the defined timeline, with the exception of any duplication glitch, which is a permanent ban. Bug Abuse is split into two main categories.

Minor Bug Abuse is for smaller bugs.
The following constitutes as Minor Bug Abuse:
  • Pearling through gates/doors
  • Spawning boats/minecarts outside of plots
Bug Abuse is for any larger bug that gives the player an advantage over other players. Abusing any bug rather than reporting to staff is considered bug abuse.

Any mod or macro not on the current list of approved mods and macros (Found Here) is not allowed. If you are unsure if a mod is allowed, contact any SrMod+ and ask.

Kill boosting (actively working with a player repeatedly to kill them over and over for a high killstreak, for example) is not allowed and can be punished under this category.

  • No Inappropriate Skins, Names, or Builds
Skins cannot have inappropriate images (nudity, swastikas, etc).
Anything you’re not allowed to say in chat cannot be in a name. This includes player IGNs, pet names, pwarp names, item names, etc.
Any build displaying phallic or disrespectful images will be removed. Lag machines are counted under this rule.

  • No Ban or Mute Evading (Double Initial Punishment, Perm if Initial Ban is Hacking)
Ban evading is the act of playing on the server while another account of yours is banned. Mute evading is bannable through the usage of commands (./f title, ./pet name, etc). If an extended mute cannot stop the form of mute evasion used, a ban is enforced.

  • No Harassment
Harassment is defined as “aggressive pressure or intimidation”. Any form of doxxing, ddosing, or similar results in a ban for harassment.

  • No Alt Abuse
Each IP address is allowed 5 accounts on it. It can be one main and four alts, or one main, a sibling, and three alts, etc. Going over 5 accounts on your IP results in an IP Ban. You must keep track of which accounts are on your IP. Staff members may tell you the number of accounts on your IP, but not their names. This doesn't mean you can have 5 accounts on at one time and then a different 5 another time, once you've logged in with 5 accounts they're the only ones you can connect with.

  • No IRL Trading
IRL trades are any trade involving the exchange of in-game items for real-life currency or purchases.

  • No Noise Pollution
Noise pollution is the intentional creation of large amounts of sounds for the purpose of annoying players (anvils in spawn, switching from main to off hand, etc).

  • No Pestering of Staff
Defined in the Mutes section as well, this can result in either a ban or a mute. TP-Trapping or killing staff members while asking for help is not allowed and will result in a ban.
  • No Faking Evidence
When reporting someone, faking the evidence by photoshopping or other means is not allowed. If you are obviously trying to get the person pushed based on fake evidence, a ban can be placed on you by an admin at their discretion.

Ban timelines stack with one another. If you are banned for malicious hacks, then are banned again at a later date, the new ban would be the second offence for the appropriate category. All bans count as an offence, regardless of category. Bans do not stack with mutes, and mutes do not stack with bans.

Mutes

  • No Spamming
All spam constitutes a warning then a mute if it continues, with the exception of excessive spam. The following constitutes as spam:
  • 3+ identical or very similar messages in a short period of time
  • 5+ identical or very similar messages over a longer period of time
  • 10+ of the same character, or just gibberish
    • "oooooooooooooooooo"
    • "dhjgfhvghshfsdhv"
  • 15+ characters in a row of all capital letters
  • 4+ words in a row of all capital letters
Note: Any hacked client spam (Example) is considered a Malicious Hacking ban due to having a client, and is not a mute.

  • No Hackusating
Any hackers should be reported using ./report or through ./message to a staff member. Calling out a player in public chat for hacks is not allowed.

  • No Swearing/Cursing
Don’t bypass the filter and don’t use words that people would consider a swear. All swearing constitutes a warning then a mute if it continues, with the exception of excessive swearing. Excessive swearing generally consists of several swears per message, or several swears within a short period of time.

  • No Being Disrespectful
Don’t be disrespectful. General saltiness is allowed, but keep it limited. All derogatory language, racism, or excessive direct insult of a player is not allowed. DDOS threatening is counted as disrespect. Disrespect does not require a warning before a mute.

  • No Advertising
The mention of server names is allowed (Hypixel, Archon, Velt, etc). Advertising is split into two categories.

Light Advertising generally requires a warning before a mute, unless excessive.
The following constitutes as Light Advertising:
  • Recruiting for a discord, youtube channel, or any other link not Skycade related
  • Comparison of a direct server competitor to Skycade (Saico, Cosmic, etc) (“Skycade is trash, come play X”, etc)
Advertising does not require a warning before a mute.
The following constitutes as Advertising:
  • Recruiting for a server IP not Skycade related
  • Any short link or link that doesn't go to a trusted website (biturls, tinylinks, etc). These may be IP grabbers and are automatically assumed to be unsafe.

  • No Pestering of Staff
Don’t be a pain. If you need a staff member’s attention, a message or two will do. Any constant annoyance or constant pestering will result in a punishment. Mute length is determined by the initial staff member’s judgement alongside a SrMod+.

Mute timelines stack with one another. If you are muted for inappropriate language, then are muted again at a later date, the new mute would be the second offence for the appropriate category. All mutes count as an offence, regardless of category. Mutes do not stack with bans, and bans do not stack with mutes.​
