Rules & Policies

Last edited 324 days ago by GrannySue
We think our rules and policies are fair and simple. These apply anywhere you interact with the Cobalt Network, including online in Minecraft, on our Discord server, or on social media or streams relating to Cobalt. See another player breaking the rules? Get proof and submit a report.

1 Respect everyone at all times

We expect everyone in the community to respect others. This includes other players, and especially our staff team. Respect means that you listen to and be mindful of other people. If a staff member corrects you or asks you a question, you should act maturely and respectfully to them. If you disagree with another player, don't be a jerk.

2 Keep the chat clean

  • No swearing: Cussing, cursing, and foul language is not tolerated on Cobalt.
  • No spamming: Don't use "noisy" chat, such as repeating the same letter or message multiple times.
  • No advertising: Don't share any links or mention other Minecraft servers.
    (If you'd like to share a link to a Cobalt-related video or stream, feel free to do so in our Discord .)
  • No politics*: Don't discuss political events or people, and keep your opinions to yourself
  • No religion*: Don't mention religious beliefs or ask others to share theirs
  • No flirting*: Don't show public displays of affection beyond what you would for a friend
  • No role-playing*: Don't use public chat for role-playing activities
  • Items marked with an asterisk (*) do not apply in channels or private messages only if everyone receiving the message consents to that type of content.

3 No client modifications or exploits may be used

Mods (client modifications) provide a new way to play Minecraft. Some add new items (which are allowed but simply won't work on Cobalt), or change sound effects or add shading to the world (which is perfectly acceptable on Cobalt). However, some mods (including hacked clients) allow you to cheat on Minecraft servers. Cobalt does NOT allow any of these mods. If it changes gameplay, gives you an unfair advantage, or shows you something you can't see in vanilla Minecraft, it is not allowed.

Anything else that modifies gameplay or gives an unfair advantage.

If you discover an exploit that could give an unfair advantage due to a bug or technical flaw, it is your responsibility to report it to us. If you abuse the exploit without telling us, you will be banned.

4 No griefing, stealing, property destruction, or trolling

If you didn't build it, don't touch it! Don't go through someone else's house, don't add or remove blocks from structures you don't own, you don't use buildings to troll or hurt other players. Griefing means breaking things you don't own, and that is not allowed on any Cobalt realm.

5 No offensive buildings, skins, or usernames

Please do not build Nazi symbols (or discuss them), build offensive buildings, log in with inappropriate usernames, or use nude skins. Don't be offensive towards any other players or groups of people with your messages, builds, actions, skins, usernames, or signs.


  • 6-month Inactivity Policy
    To keep our databases happy and our storage costs to a minimum, we track how active you are on our Minecraft server. If you do not log in for 180 consecutive days (6 months), we will delete some of the data we have stored about you to free up space for other players. To avoid any data loss, simply log in to our Minecraft server at least once every 179 days. You can check a player's last login date on their stats page.

Deleted after 6 months

Towns (if you're mayor)
Chat channels (if you're the original creator)
Realm balances (dollars or shards)

Never deleted

  • Alternate Accounts
    Each human playing on Cobalt must have a single Minecraft account that they use to join the server, and must have a single Discord account they use on our Discord. Using multiple accounts to attempt to gain playtime, keep chunks loaded, earn money or gems or XP, collect items, avoid the AFK timer, or assist your primary account in any way is not allowed. If you are banned or punished, you are not allowed to use another account in an attempt to bypass the infraction.

  • Keep Your Account Secure
    If you don't have a long, complex, unique, and secure password for your account, go update it. If your Discord account doesn't have two-factor authentication, go turn that on. And most importantly, set a /password when you first log in to our Minecraft server. If your account is used without your permission (by a family member or a hacker), it is YOUR responsibility. Don't let others use your account for any reason.

  • Observing Rule-Breakers
    If someone refuses to obey the rules, ignore them! Mini-modding is not allowed. Do not try to correct them or enforce the rules, as this will just make the situation worse. Get evidence in the form of a screenshot or video, and then report it to us. If the offender broke a chat-related rule, click on the arrow icon right before their chat message to report it directly in-game.

  • Terms and Conditions
    You must agree to the Cobalt Terms and Conditions to play on our Minecraft server, use our website, or interact with our Discord server (our "Services"). Engaging with our Services constitutes an acceptance of our terms.
