Spaceblock Network

Official Rules


---------
All rules listed here apply to all players of the Spaceblock Network. This includes normal players, donators, staff members, and VIPs. These rules are in effect at all times and are enforced by official staff members of the Spaceblock Network. Violating any of these rules may result in punishment action taken against you or your account(s) which can include, but are not limited to: warnings, kicks, mutes, suspensions, and bans. Failure to read and understand these rules is not a valid claim in defense of breaking them.

These rules are subject to change at anytime, with or without prior notice. The Spaceblock Leadership Team reserves this right.

Using an alternative account on the Spaceblock Network to evade a punishment will result in an extended punishment and all known alternative accounts will be permanently banned. Multiple infractions of ban or mute evasion will result in a permanent network ban, which bans all IPs tied to your account(s).

Client Modifications
The usage of modifications to your Minecraft client is heavily moderated by Spaceblock Staff. While some modifications are allowed, there are other modifications that are not permitted. Additionally, you are ultimately responsible for your client and the modifications you have, even if you are unaware something is disallowed.

What is a Blacklisted Modification?
A blacklisted modification is any client modification that gives you a significant advantage over other players on the Network.

Allowed Modifications:




    • OptiFine & Shaders
    • Armor and Potion HUD Modifications
    • Brightness Modifications / Gamma Increasing
    • MiniMap Modifications (as long as they don't show players, entities, chests, caves, etc).
Any other type of modification should be considered blacklisted.

Cheating and Exploiting

This includes:



    • Using blacklisted client modifications.
    • Exploiting bugs or glitches.
    • Using a donation, staff, or VIP rank to gain an unintended advantage over other users (i.e. Saying things such as "I'm a VIP send your kits / money / items to me to get in the video / stream." is strictly forbidden).
    • Using a Hacked Client, 3rd-Party or external Modification, Injected Client, Illegal Macros (such as autoclickers or spam-bots).
All of the above result in severe punishment.

Offensive Usernames, Capes or Skins

1). Having an offensive username in-which is related to sexual or inappropriate topics, profane language, or sensitive issues is not permitted.
2). Having an offensive cape in-which is related to sexual or inappropriate topics, profane language, or sensitive issues is not permitted.

Respect ALL Players

Respect All Players, at all times. We simply ask that you are respectful to everyone on the network at all times. Do not send a chat message or make a forums post that could be taken offensive or hurt the feelings of another player. We also take discrimination, in any form, very seriously.
This includes, but is not limited to:



    • Sexism
    • Racism
    • Ageism
    • Religious
    • Disabilities
    • Rankism (Donators / Non - Donators)

Profane Language and Inappropriate Content are strictly Prohibited
Please be mindful of the age of everyone on the network. We strive to be a family friendly network and the use of profane language and referring to or posting inappropriate content anywhere on the network is forbidden (Profane Language = Swearing).

Spam and Excessive Use of Capital Letters

Something is considered "Spam" once it is posted at least 3 times consecutively or posted repeatedly within the last 5 minutes.
Please also refrain from the use of excessive capital letters. It is excessive if at least 75% of the sentence is capital letters or symbols or the message simply looks unpleasing in chat.

Do not impersonate other players, staff members, or VIPs

Impersonation is taken very seriously. Some things to note:
Staff Members will NEVER ask for your account password; Staff Members will NEVER ask you for money; and VIPs or Official Network Giveaways will not require personal information.

Buying and Selling Minecraft Accounts
Spaceblock Network does not encourage, condone, or recommend the act of buying or selling Minecraft Accounts. Additionally, if you purchase a Minecraft Account and find out it is banned on Spaceblock, we will not unban the account. Also, if you have an account that gets banned on Spaceblock, and you sell it and purchase an account that isn't banned on Spaceblock, you as an individual are still banned from Spaceblock. Therefore any accounts you use to connect to Spaceblock, are subject to receiving a Ban Evasion Ban.

Account Security and Account Sharing

Spaceblock Network strongly discourages the act of sharing Minecraft Accounts with anyone. You are totally responsible for any activity on your account even if it was the result of a breach of security on your account. You're not only responsible for who uses your account and what they do, but also for the security of your account. Spaceblock Staff will not pardon any punishments taken against your account due to account compromisation unless notified prior to the actions occurring. If you are aware of a breach in your account's security or you believe your account could be subject to a breach in the near future, please contact a Moderator via Forums PM, Discord, or through the "player reports" forums section and notify them of your account's (possible) compromisation. They will ask you for proof of account ownership and once provided, your account will be suspended from joining the network until you notify us that your account is safe.

Advertising is Prohibited

Advertising for other servers or networks, websites, games, or youtube channels / twitch streams is prohibited. You may advertise for your YouTube Video or Live Stream in chat once every 30 minutes as long as you are only featuring Spaceblock Content. Any other social media advertising will result in a mute.
Advertising for other networks or games, will result in a mute or ban depending on the severity and specific offense.
Advertising for a gaming website (i.e. "Everyone make an account on https://hypixel.net/forums/") is considered Domain Advertising and also results in a mute or ban depending on severity and offense history.

However, advertising for a website that contains mature / sexual / inappropriate content is considered as a severe offense and results in a ban.
