How to get good Evidence for your Report

This guide will show you what evidence you need for each non-muteable offence to correctly report the rulebreaker on the Forums.

NOTE:
This is a guide on how to get correct evidence, not a guide on how to report. For a guide on how to report on the Forums, please go here.

Evidence almost always exists of screenshots. For a guide on how to find your MC Screenshots, please go here.

IMPORTANT: Always use unedited screenshots! Edited screenshots will not be accepted as evidence!
| Advertising Server IP or Website URL, Admitting to Hacks/Mods, Sharing Other's Personal Info (Doxxing)
  • Post a screenshot of the message that the player should be punished for.
NOTE: Please do not report someone for 'Admitting to Hacks/Mods' if it's clearly a joke.​

| Griefing, Inappropriate Build
  • Post screenshots (preferably multiple) with evidence from /inspect and/or /check that shows that the player you're reporting has indeed griefed/made the inappropriate build.
  • Post a screenshot of the plot's /plot info, so that staff can locate the plot.
  • If it is only a small grief/build, it is preferred that you also include the exact coordinates of the grief/build, to make it easier for staff to locate it on the plot. (Your coordinates can be found near the top left of your screen in the menu that appears when you press F3.) You may also just write down the plot's coordinates in your report, but a screenshot of the coordinates is preferred.
  • Preferably also post a screenshot with an overview of the grief/inappropriate build.
If you have found an inappropriate build but there is no evidence from /inspect or /check of who built it, you can do one of the two following things:
  • You can call over a Staff Member who will get it removed.
  • You can report it on the Forums by following the above steps, apart from the step with evidence from /inspect or /check. Please mention in the report that there is no evidence of who built it.

| Hacks/Mods
  • Post screenshots or a video that clearly shows that the player is using hacks/mods. A video is preferred and sometimes even the only way to prove it, but in some cases screenshots can work too. E.g. if someone is using the hack 'Nuker', you can post /inspect evidence that shows that the player broke a lot of blocks at the same time, more than normally possible.
NOTE: This is only needed if the player does not admit to hacking/using Mods. If the player admits to it, you may also use the guidelines of 'Admitting to Hacks/Mods'. (Found above.)​

| Inappropriate Skin
  • Post a screenshot of the player using the skin.

| Inappropriate Username
  • Post a screenshot of the player or of the player's /seen.

| Inappropriate Roleplay Role
  • If the player requested an inappropriate role, post a screenshot of the request.
  • If the player is already using an inappropriate role, post a screenshot of the player with their Role in the nametag above their head and/or post screenshots that show the Roleplay Scoreboard and one of the player's messages. The Scoreboard shows which RP Name is linked to the Role and the message shows which player is linked to the RP Name, and so shows which player is linked to the Inappropriate Role.
  • If there is an inappropriate Role Sign, please follow the guidelines of 'Any rule breaking on Signs'. (Found below.)

| Inappropriate /home Name
  • Post a screenshot of the player's /seen showing their Home Name.

| Bypassing a Ban
  • Sufficient evidence for this can only be collected by staff. However, if you see someone admitting to it, you can take a screenshot of it and send it to staff.
NOTE: If the player only bypasses their ban to ask why they were banned, then that is not against the rules. If this is the case, please do not report.​

| Bypassing any Mute
  • Post a screenshot of the player's /seen that shows that the player was muted at the time.
  • Other evidence you need for this, depends on in what way the player is bypassing their mute:
    • Through building Letters: Post screenshots with evidence from /inspect and/or /check, post a screenshot with an overall view of what the player has written and preferably also post a screenshot with the /plot info (and optionally coordinates from the F3-menu), so that the letters can be located in case the letters are still there when a staff member is resolving the report.
    • Through writing in a Book: Post a screenshot of you hovering over the book, showing the book's author, and post screenshots of what it is inside the book.
    • Through an Alt Account: Sufficient evidence for this can only be collected by staff. However, if you see someone admitting to it, you can take a screenshot of it and send it to staff.
NOTE: If the player only bypasses their mute to ask why they were muted, then that is not against the rules. If this is the case, please do not report.​


| Any rule breaking on Signs
  • Post screenshots with evidence from /inspect that shows that the player you're reporting has indeed written the sign.
  • Post a screenshot of the plot's /plot info, so that staff can locate the plot.
  • It is preferred that you also include the exact coordinates of the sign, to make it easier for staff to locate it on the plot. (Your coordinates can be found near the top left of your screen in the menu that appears when you press F3.) You may also just write down the plot's coordinates in your report, but a screenshot of the coordinates is preferred.
  • Preferably also post screenshot(s) with the full sign(s) and what is written on it/them.

| Any rule breaking in Books
  • Post a screenshot of you hovering over the book, showing the book's title and author, to prove that the player you're reporting has indeed written the book (and to show the inappropriate title, if the book has one).
  • Post screenshots of the inappropriate page(s) in the book. (This is not needed if the rulebreaking is only in the title of the book.)
NOTE: If you get a message that the book is not verified and may be falsified, please do not report the book, because that could mean that the author shown on the book may not be the actual author.​

| Inappropriate Item Names or Banners

Getting good evidence for this is difficult. Good evidence shows at least one of these two things:​
  • The player admits that they are the creator of the item/banner.
  • The player has lots of their items/banners in their inventory and is handing them out to lots of players.

| Linked Advertising
  • Post a screenshot of the message with the Linked Advertising.

| Bypassing Plot Deny
  • Post a screenshot of the plot's /plot info, that shows that the player is denied from the plot.
  • Post a screenshot that shows that the player is chatting on and/or moving around the plot.

| Inappropriate /rp Name
  • Post a screenshot of a message from the player which shows the RP Name. (Only a screenshot from the RP Scoreboard is not sufficient as it doesn't show which RP Name belongs to which Username.)

| Any muteable offence in /mail
  • Post a screenshot of the mail that has the offence.

The first screenshot is an overview of the grief. The second screenshots shows the plot's /plot info and shows the exact coordinates of the grief. The third screenshot shows evidence from /inspect that shows that the player indeed griefed the build.

NOTE: Adding the correct evidence does not guarantee that the player you are reporting will be punished. Each report is decided on a case by case basis.

Good luck getting your evidence!
