    Flaming, Disrespect, Harassment, and Inappropriate Content
    Many communities are composed of different backgrounds and beliefs. As such, this community is composed of different beliefs, morals, sexual orientations etc., and we take the value of equality seriously. Remember that each person will take an insult differently depending on these values.

    • a. The use of inappropriate and/or disrespectful language towards another’s belief, race, religion, and harassing members is not tolerated. While we have an ignore system, we expect members to act accordingly towards each other.
    • b. Content that is advertised and/or discussed VIA the public chat or private message that is deemed inappropriate per the staff member’s discretion will be dealt with accordingly. This includes but not limited to; pornographic material, debates about sensitive topics, etc.
    • c. Harassing the administration with wanting staff is not tolerated, members must earn the ranks! Failure to cease these actions will result in a mute and/or a permanent ban at the discretion of the staff team.

    Staff Impersonation
    On the basis of principle, impersonating a member of the Hyperion Network Staff Team is prohibited. The consequences for breaking this rule vary depending on context: Those caught impersonating with good intentions will be warned not to do so in the future; those caught impersonating with malevolent intentions will be recieve a mute ranging between 24-48 hours. If severe enough, impersonators may also be permanently muted.

    • a. Take whatever is personal through PM.

    Advertisement of another Minecraft related community is strictly forbidden and a permanent removal of the community will be issued. There will be no chance of appeal!

    • a. Common known links (e.g. Hypixel, Google and YouTube) is fine and will be commonly permitted. Links are expected to be to advertise directly to where they say they're going (e.g. advertising a YouTube link, and then it links to a whole new site; no matter if it's harmful or not).

    • b. Members wanting to advertise another link outside of Minecraft related material can send a link to an administrator and to await approval.

    Spamming on Hyperion will not be permitted, acts of such feats will be acted upon accordingly by the staff members of Hyperion. We should all be acting as mature as we can while on Hyperion and respect others wishes as well, those who continue to do such feats will be removed from Hyperion if needed.

    • a. You must wait 10 seconds between repeating your messages as to prevent overflooding.
    • b. Restrain from the usage of excessive CAPS. LOL, LMFAO is okay.
    Misleading Links, Hacking, and Threats
    Misleading links are never allowed on the server, we expect links to open up to as what it was advertised for. Failure to comply with this rule will result in a permanent removal from the community.

    Hacking in any shape or form will result in a permanent removal from the community, simply put.

    Threatening members that will put their life, security, and reputation at risk will result in a permanent removal from the community.

    Punishment Evasion

    Punishments that are handed out towards members is one of the reasons communities maintain a balanced environment. Punishments that are evaded are not taken lightly, if you feel like you deserve another chance then take it serious and quickly make an appeal; don’t make a scene.

    Third Party Software
    The use of third party software that allows a member to have an unfair advantage in any way will result in a 1-7 Days temporare ban depending on the severeness followed by an extended ban, and finally ending with a permanent suspension from the server. We want a fair environment where all players have the equal chance of all features. This is including but not limited to auto-clickers.

    Encouraging Others to Break Rules
    Members that are somehow encouraging others to break a rule whether or not he/she understands the rule will result in a mute or ban at the discretion of the staff.

    Bug Abuse
    Abuse of a bug or glitch that allows a player to somehow have an advantage over another or the server itself is not tolerated. We ask all members to report them as soon as they're found otherwise a permanent removal from the community will be issued.

    Refunds (Scams, Disconnects etc.)

    a. Disconnections will not be refunded, feel free to create a thread about it and stating the problem so the problem can be fixed though.

    b. Donations will ONLY be refunded if he/she has NOT been given their items or position (forums, server) after 72 hours, otherwise a refund is not required. Remember, items that have been obtained through our donation system that is lost at their own doing will not be refunded.

    c. Reset of the server or forums will be refunded if he or she has posted valid proof of their purchase in relative board, otherwise a refund is not required on our part.

    d. Scammed members will not be refunded because there are simple tactics to not be scammed in the first place such as using a middleman (server support, moderator, administrator etc.). Please note that we will not be accepting photo-reports of members being scammed, it must be a video or it will not be handled. Please do note that scammers will be punished severely with a permanent ban on their first offense and an IP-Ban on their second offense.

    e. Account sharing is not of our concern and is at the discretion of member to do so, however, members who do decide to do so and have had their accounts muted, banned, or otherwise “hacked” will be at their own fault.

    f. Hacking refunds will not be handed out, those who have been victimized should have all the security features that we offer on Hyperion.

    • g. Glitch refunds will ONLY be refunded if the member has 100 percent proof, and has proof of the items prior to the glitch happening. Note that if a developer (or whoever has spawning abilities) does not see the proof to be enough, it can be declined and a refund is not required.

    Player Vs. Player (PvP)
    Hyperion is not held responsible for members who have lost, disconnected etc., while in the wilderness (War Zone). For the most part, going into the wilderness is at people's own risk, however, we have but a few rules:

    a. PVP-Farming will be an automatic IP-Ban or Mac Ban from the server and no chance of appeal.

    b. Luring is apart of MANY Minecraft communities. It is not punishable on Hyperion, however, the only exception to this rule is luring staff asking for help, or anything else along the lines will result in a punishment up to and/or including a ban.

    • c. Ragging is prohibited at all times as you are held accountable for your own actions. Simply, don't rage whether you lose your items or anything beyond it.

    Changing your IP to gain multiple vote rewards is against the rules. If you're caught you will be punished
