    ******Why was I punished?******

    If you were punished, either muted or banned, it is because you broke one of our server rules. We have a variety of different server rules, and because of this your punishment can vary depending on what rule you broke. You can find information regarding your punishment in the posts located below.

    ******How to Appeal******

    If you believe you were falsely muted and or banned, then you can create a punishment appeal. Please read the below information BEFORE creating a punishment appeal.


    These appeals are only meant to be created for the above reason. If you are guilty you will be denied, no exceptions.

    If you are to appeal your punishment, it is best to do so in a timely manner. If you have been banned or muted for too long, your appeal will most likely be denied.


    WARNING: Please read the above information page before completing a punishment appeal


    To create an appeal, you will first need to go to

    Once you have opened the appeal form, you can follow the below screenshot to help guide you through the appeal process.

    Appeals sent in any other way (e.g. private message, email, etc) will be directed back to the appeals section here with no further answer. We can only deal with appeals for the server in the appeals section here on the forums.

    Please also note that in many cases we are unable to share the proof we have internally for your ban, either due to the original reporter not giving permission for us to share the evidence (usually in cases where they wish to protect their identity as the reporter) or in cases where proof collected by staff shows private information which was also captured inadvertently. If you request proof and the appeals team does not provide it, it is likely for this reasoning.​


    Your account is your responsibility.
    You will be held accountable for other people's actions on your account.

    Bans for Compromised Account/Account Security Alert

    If you are banned for Compromised Account or Account Security Alert, click here.


    Account Buying

    Recently we've been coming across reports of people who've purchased Minecraft accounts from 3rd party sellers only to find them banned from the server.

    These banned accounts have a history with various reasons ranging from using modified clients (hacking) to Advertising/Spam. Therefore these accounts will not be unbanned due to the risk of them continuing their activities.

    We strongly urge you to only purchase from the Minecraft website.

    Account Selling

    For the reasons listed above, we do not allow advertising your account on the Hypixel network. We wish to keep our players as safe as possible and removing unnecessary risk is a good step towards that goal.

    ******Frequently Asked Questions******
    How come I always get copy and pasted answers?
    We on the appeals team deal with hundreds of appeals a day, and we cannot give lengthy custom responses to each appeal. We use copy and pasted answers in order to give those appealing their answer quicker and more efficiently.
    Can I appeal multiple times, even after my first appeal was denied?
    Once your first appeal has been answered, no other appeals can be made for that specific mute or ban. The current system will prevent you from doing so.
    I have been banned for a long time, can I still make an appeal?
    You can still make an appeal, even if you've been banned for a long time. However, your appeal will most likely be denied.
