We only punish with a blacklist in a situation where we feel a player has gone over the top, if we feel that they are a threat to the safety of our community, or the stability of the community as a whole.

To appeal a blacklist, you must submit a form here and must have been blacklisted for at least 1 year. You must provide reasoning of your blacklist and details on how you've changed. If your blacklist appeal is denied, you must wait at least 1 year before appealing it again. You are not welcome on any of our service platforms during a blacklist (e.g Discord, Minecraft server, etc).

A blacklist punishment will never expire from your history.
