This page contains all the rules of the Hypixel Network. To make reading easier, the page has been divided into articles and subarticles. A statement is adressed by quoting the article and the subargument, for example article 2, subarticle 4 would make the quote : article 2.4. The rules are to be respected by everyone on the entire Hypixel Network, ranging from members to admininstrators.

== Global rules ==

These rules apply to all ranks on the Hypixel Network. The Hypixel Network is the common name for the Hypixel Minecraft Servers, the Hypixel Forums and Hypixel Teamspeak. All chat rules apply to all kinds of chat, be it guild chat or normal chat.

=== ===

All players on the Hypixel Network are to be known with these rules, so they can avoid any kind of punishment and/or ban. The Hypixel Administration reserves all rights to make any changes to these rules any time they think it is necessary.

Alternate accounts, which are used to avoid a punishment and/or ban is illegal on the Hypixel Network. Any players caught doing so will get their alternate account banned forever and the mute/ban of their main account might be extended.

== Staff authority ==

All decisions made by the Hypixel Staff Team are considered to be final. A judgement of a staff member is not an arguable matter in any way. If a staff member is abusing you or others, you can contact the Hypixel Administration at all times. You can also ask the staff to be nice.

== Own responsibility ==

Any breach made by any person is your responsibility. If a rule has been broken by an account, that account will receive the necessary punishment, without any exceptions.

== Advertising ==

=== Chat/Pet ===

Advertising other servers and sharing ip's and domains other than those of the Hypixel Network will result in an immediate temporary or permanent ban. This includes advertising by using pet names, party chat and guild name.

Advertising your guild name, inviting or publicly offering any player to join it, is allowed, as long as it does not break the spam and capital letters rules.
