1. G'Day everyone,

    Today we are releasing our new updated ruleset for the Hypixel Server, as well as our new profanity filter. Read on to find out all the changes.

    ▶ New Hypixel Rules
    We are pleased to announce that we are releasing our new updated ruleset today. These rules have been developed around feedback we have heard from players - we've tried to keep them as simple as possible with the goal of making Hypixel a positive and respectful space where cheating, inappropriate content, bad player behavior and other negative things are kept to a minimum.

    We have made a new rules page detailing our new common sense ruleset with many frequently asked questions answered. Please read the new rules at the following link - not knowing the rules is not an excuse for breaking them: https://hypixel.net/rules/

    ▶ Profanity Filter
    You may recall a post I made back in September discussing this upcoming change. With the introduction of our new rules we are now able to release our new profanity filter, which is now live on the server.

    Instead of messages being blocked from sending, the Profanity Filter stars out banned words using asterisks. I want to thank you for the feedback and questions we received on the previous thread, Chat Filter and warning updates. This information allowed us to make some changes to suit the players better.

    PLEASE NOTE: Our first rule - Respect All Players - still applies to all chat messages. Targeting players, insulting them, circumventing the filter or otherwise being abuse is still against the rules. Just because the banned words are starred out doesn't mean that using them is okay - negative behavior will still be punished.

    In private chat, Guild chat and Party chat, the filter can be disabled completely allowing you to chat however you like in your personal private spaces. You can change this in your settings (playerhead icon in lobbies).

    In lobbies and games you can toggle the filter to different settings in your Profile (playerhead icon in lobbies):
    • Filter: Strong - all profanity is starred out
    • Filter: Weak - mild profanity is allowed and strong profanity is starred out
    There were also a lot of questions about rules and the profanity filter. Things will be more relaxed - we have removed a lot of words from the ban list - however as said before the Rule, Respect All Players, still applies to chat. Chat that has profanity filtered out and the chat message is very clearly using discrimination or being disrespectful, will be deemed to not be following the rules.

    This is a very exciting time and we look forward to working with you during this time of change. Our goal is to make Hypixel more fun for everyone to play on, and we hope these changes make it less annoying to chat with friends whilst also avoiding abuse.​

    Edit: How do you disagree or dislike a “Thanks”. Guys, come on, you’re hurting my feelings.

    One would assume avoiding the filter is still against the rules?

  11. As it says in the post, avoiding the filter is against the rules, as is targeting / harassing people or otherwise breaking the #1 rule Respect All Players.
