As we are not perfect and because it is not possible to list every possible way to violate the intent of the rules, we ask you to use common sense. If you see something that would typically be illegal on other networks, but is not specifically listed here, please do not attempt it. Staff have extensive training and all punishments are given at staff discretion. Prolonged discussions interfere with staff's ability to moderate chat and may result in punishment.
If you feel a staff has been unfair or may have abused their powers you may report them by creating a form here here .
To appeal a punishment (without accusing staff of intentional wrongdoing) you may Appeal your Ban/Mute here .

Scamming is not allowed on most servers within our Network. Scamming can include naming an item incorrectly and selling it in the auction house or via other trade methods. Such as naming a wood sword “Diamond Sword” to try and scam people. Another method would be offering to pay a certain amount for an item but when you receive the item the buyer doesn't pay the money and vice versa.
Auction House and Cubit scams are not allowed on any server.
Abusing Auction House
Selling renamed items on auction to display advertisements such as warps, trades and services is not allowed.
The severity of the bug determines the length of your ban. Typically we generously reward players who report game-breaking bugs.
Abusing a Glitch/Bug on Parkour will result in a locked rank which prevents earning mana or score on courses.
This is when a player uses an alternate account to bypass restrictions set on their main account. The alternate account, and players IP address will be muted/banned for the punishment length on the main account.

Players may not make deals with other players to increase their chances of getting onto or boosted up on the final leaderboards to receive leaderboard/payout prizes.
This gives an unfair advantage based on popularity.
Any deals made will likely result in a leaderboard/payout ban.
Deals include but are not limited to
- Giving someone all of your money/stuff so that they win leaderboards. This player may then share some of the rewards with those that have helped them, however rewards do not have to be shared for the deal to count as unfair.
- Sharing an account to get onto leaderboards (alternating use so that the account can be used for longer)
- Survival - Parties cannot team up in order to bypass limits such as spawner caps
setting a home or warp in another players island or base without permission from the Island or Party Leader is not allowed.
Player run games/giveaways
While players are allowed to run various games, giveaways and casinos on SkullNetwork, there are a several rules to be aware of.
- In-Game and discord chat games are not allowed and are punished under spamming. For example, 'first to guess the number I am thinking of between 1-100 wins $10k'. However, forum games such as ‘Count to 100 before a staff posts’ are allowed.
- Any prize from a game or giveaway must be available and proven to staff if requested
- Rigging a game or giveaway is not allowed and is punishable under trolling
- Giveaways are allowed but players cannot claim that they are official. Official giveaways are only posted by administrators in the public announcement areas.
Builds that significantly lower the FPS of others causing extreme lag, cause a player to lag or lag the server are not allowed, will be cleared and may result in ban. If it is obvious that the laggy build was not intentional, then a ban will not be given, just a warning.

Command spam, encouraging spam, repeatedly begging for items, repeatedly advertising events, coinflips, auctions , etc. and group spam will also result in punishment. Spamming commands like /helpop, /msg, /afk, /marry will result in a ban.
Sexual / Inappropriate Speech
While we like to give people some degree of expression, we don't allow people to be overly sexual in the chat, which can make the server incredibly inappropriate and awkward for other players.
Tricking or misleading players to issue commands such as /ci or [Alt][F4] falls under Trolling and is punishable at staff discretion. Physical Trolling is also not allowed, see the Physical Trolling rule.
Intentionally bringing up sensitive topics to start arguments, make people emotional or harass other players is not allowed. If players make personal attacks on others rather than discussing the topic at hand, they are in a Flame War and risk punishment.
Abusive or threatening behavior against a particular group, especially on the basis of race, religion, or sexual orientation is not allowed. Unlike most chat violations, staff give no warnings for true Hate Speech and the punishments quickly escalate.
Note: Not all offensive, ill-informed, inflammatory statements or opinions are true Hate Speech and therefore may be warned or punished as disrespect, harassment, bullying, flame wars, etc.
Repeatedly bypassing our swear filter by excessively swearing will result in a mute.
Bullying / Harassment
Intentional harassment of another player will result in a mute and possibly ban
