    Since I've been on cubecraft this rule has always confused me. If you post an ip on the chat you will get muted forever even if you'r intention was not advertising. This is completly unacceptable and should be looked better to.
    I know kids who play minecraft and saw them getting perma muted for just posting the ip of hypixel or mineplex EVEN THOUGH cubecraft has partened with these servers before to some degree. In my opinion just try to look into the context. Was he spamming the ip? Or was he just giving the ip of another server to a friend? There is a big difference between advertising and sharing and I think you should not get muted for posting the ip of another server.

    Before you tell me this:
    But they can just use a command to send a private conversation with the ip.
    Not really, most of cubecraft's players are children and commands are not easy to use. I talk about experience as my sibling play on cubecraft.

    Suggested new rule:
    Spamming IP -> Mute ( 3-6 Months )
    Sending IP -> No mute

    Looking into contex is important

    I've never seen anyone posting an IP on accident. Seriously, only bots or people who want to advertise their server are doing this, and there is no reason for them not to be permanently muted.
    You can show the /tell command to your sibling, so he doesn't get muted.

    This are the official rules.
    1- Do not advertise (Includes but not limited to: Online/Offline Products, other servers or other games, server addresses, phishing sites etc).
    Punishment: permanent mute.

    2- Do not spam or use repeated characters/symbols ([]{}#%^*+) in your chat (Includes but is not limited to: spamming Youtube and Twitch links).

    I think you need to deal with the rules, wont be changed i think

    If someone asks for your IP, then you should /tell it to them. You shouldn't need to insert it into the chat.

    I don't see why people should put IPs in chat... Advertising for servers on a server makes no sense... It's like opening a Dr. Pepper shop in a Pepsi factory :p But I do agree with the shorter amount of time for advertising. Maybe 3-6 months, yep.

    I would prefer something like this :

    Spamming should be instant perma mute
    Sending IP "FOR THE FIRST TIME" Should be 3-6 months mute, If repeated, Permanent Mute.

    If you send an Ip(without having using /tell) you very well know that you are going to get banned(it's a common rule on most decent-good servers) also not knowing the rules does not mean that you can't be charged for them. -1
