-Placing items on your keyboard or mouse and afking.

Examples:
  • Block Glitching

Note: In cases of very serious exploits the resulting punishment regardless of the quantity of offences will be a permanent ban - examples of this include but are not limited to the duplication of items and punishment is at the discretion of the Head Admin / Owners / Devs.


In Game Scamming is Not Permitted

Scamming is not permitted on the server. Players misrepresenting items for sale, offering to give an item in payment for actions and not following through when able, bait and switch, are all examples of scamming. This INCLUDES renaming items as if they are something they are not in the Auction House and teleport killing (eg. "Tp for items" but killing the player instead)
First Offence: 7 Day Temp Ban.
Second Offence: 30 Day Temp Ban.
Third Offence: 60 Day Temp Ban.
Excessive offences that follow will be reviewed by upper staff and punishment for continued abuse will be at the discretion of the Head Admin / Owners etc.


In Real Life Money Scamming / Chargebacks

In Real Life Money Scamming in which someone promises to purchase a server store item in return for favours in-game will result in a Ban. Scamming someone out of IRL Money is a perm ban. Period.
Purchasing ranks for any player other than yourself, for in-game items or as a gift, is strongly discouraged. Though not bannable, players who agree to this type of transaction are placing themselves at risk. If the player were to chargeback, the receiver of the purchase would be responsible for the purchase and could result in your account being permanently banned from the server until the funds are repaid.
Continued offences will result in complete removal from the server with no chance of appeal.

Selling in game items / IGN's etc for paypal or other game items

Players are not permitted to sell in-game items including their Minecraft account on the server for PayPal / cash or make deals regarding items outside of Cosmic Prisons.
1st Offence: 1 Formal warning
2nd Offence: 7 Day Temp Ban
3rd Offence: 30 Day Temp Ban
Excessive offences that follow will be reviewed by upper staff and punishment for continued abuse will be at the discretion of the Head Admin / Owners etc.


Bypassing Locked / Muted chat

If you choose to attempt to bypass a chat lock, it could result in removal from the server. Bypassing when staff are trying to communicate without interruption on something that is seen as important only undermines the server as a whole.

Continued offences could result in complete removal from the server.


No Inappropriate IGN or Skin

As stated in Rule 3: Racism, Discrimination, Sexual, and Derogatory Remarks are not welcome here. If a player is seen with an inappropriate IGN or skin, they will be banned until they change their name/skin and an appeal is submitted.
First Offence: Permanent ban until changed.
Continued offences could result in complete removal from the server.


Do not attempt to bypass a mute

Bypassing a mute could result in removal from the server. Wait out your mute and follow the rules, it's really that simple.
Excessive offences will be at the discretion of the upper staff and punishment will be at the discretion of the Head Admin / Owners etc this includes, but is not limited to, trying to start riots / spam/number spam or the like.


Swatting, DDOS and DOX Threats

Threatening to terminate or exploit another player or their internet will result in removal from the server. Ddosing is a federal offence and goes further than breaking rules in the game and releasing players personal information is exploitation which also goes outside of the game. Please remain calm and decent, if you're frustrated, log off.


First Offence: Permanent IP ban.

Esc + space jump glitch.

This glitch allows the player to jump up and down infinitely, bypassing the afk kick system. If you do this, it will result in punishment.

Ban Report Video Removal.

If you remove the video evidence you provide and the ban report has been accepted, we will ban you for removal of video evidence. Please permanently keep ban report videos on unlisted or public to prevent punishment.

Second Offence: Perm Ban (unless evidence is resubmitted).


Begging.

Your admins are here to help out with things like updates, bug fixing and other various important things. They aren't going to give and give and give every time they are asked. It just becomes too much. If you beg an admin to give items, double xp, etc you will be punished.
First Offence: Verbal Warning.
Second Offence: 10 Minute Tempmute.
Third Offence: Up to an hour Tempmute.
