Welcome to the Mineplex Punishment Guidelines! These are the rules that we have on the Mineplex server, and a brief description of what they are.

Please be sure to check back frequently for document updates!

The Mineplex In-Game Java Edition, Bedrock, and Discord rules are managed by our Rules Committee team (Feel free to message them with any questions or concerns):

_________________________________________________


Enforcement of these rules is decided by the individual staff member. Rules may vary case by case depending on context and intent. If you suspect a staff member is abusing their power or punishing incorrectly then please submit a support ticket at
mineplex.com/support or contact their appropriate supervisor through the mineplex.com/staff page (Trainee/Mod = Staff Management, Senior Mod = Team Admin).

Rules and punishments are subject to change at any time at the discretion of the Admin Team / Rules Committee. Playing on the server means that you acknowledge the rules and agree to abide by them to continue playing uninterrupted. Trying to circumvent/”loophole” the rules is not allowed, and any attempt to do so may be met with punishment.

Note: Punishment times are determined by the system (not staff members), and depending on previous offenses, the punishment time may increase. Generally the punishment time will automatically increase with every severity.

We have three additional systems of punishments that will result in your punishment reason ending in [SR], [FR], or [ST].
