What type of punishments and staff discharges are there?

Moderative Level Punishment
Verbal Warning

Lowest form of punishment. This is where a staff member tells/orders you to stop whatever it is you're doing and stop causing a problem. This does not go on your record.

Written Warning/Citation
This is where a staff member gives you a warning that does go on record. This is usually given for minor offenses.

Kick (Forcefully Disconnected)
This is an escalated level of the written warning letting the offender know they are close to harsher punishment and that they really need to stop.

Temporary Mute
This is the end result of multiple warnings for chat offenses.

Administrative Level Punishment
Temporary Ban

This is where a staff member gives you a warning that does go on record. This is usually given for minor offenses.

Permanent Mute
This is the lowest level of an administrative level punishment and can be done by 2nd class moderators but is usually decided by Operators and 1st class moderators. The situation in which we use permanent mutes is rare and unique.

Permanent Ban
This is where somebody has crossed the line and committed a serious violation of the Community Guidelines.

Terms of Service & Supreme Level Punishment
Shadow Ban / Anonymous Ban

This is where we've considered a user's actions serious enough and/or the user is dangerous enough to secretly remove them from our platforms with no further information provided as to why, how long, or even know they are banned.

This is similar to a blacklist except they can still access most of our platforms, however they can't communicate with any users on any of the Minecortex platforms and is permanently banned from discord. This is the HIGHEST LEVEL of being muted. Users at this level are usually VERY CLOSE to being Blacklisted, aka close to jumping out of the frying pan into the fire.

This is the HIGHEST AND FINAL LEVEL of punishment the Minecortex can deal out. A blacklist is where someone is permanently IP, UUID, and Email from ALL of Minecortex Services LLC. This is only done in the most extreme situations and can only be enforced by the Owner and the Owner's Top Managers aka The Minecortex Administrators. A blacklist is completely non-negotiable/unappealable and is usually given to those who hurt Minecortex financially and/or reputationally.

Staff Punishments & Discharges

These are punishments staff can receive for breaking the Community Guidelines and/or the Staff Handbook:
A discharge is a full demotion and removal of ranks/permissions. Removed from the staff team.

Dishonorable Discharge
This is a very serious offense and includes the highest Administrative Level Punishment or TOS/Supreme Level Punishment. The Leadership Team considers a staff member's actions to be reprehensible, completely outrageous and unacceptable. A staff member has did something very serious and has to be permanently banned or even blacklisted. Things that can warrant this are: 1) Treason, 2) Leaking private information either about the network or a player, 3) Creating drama or rumors to ruin reputation of Minecortex, 4) Terrorist/cyber warfare type of attack against minecortex. Offenders of this will have a bad mark put on their record and our bad recommendation of them will be made visible to the world via our website and/or youtube. At this point they are considered an enemy of MInecortex Services LLC and legal action may be taken.

Bad Conduct Discharge
This is where a staff member did something bad but not seriously enough to warrant a serious ban. E.g.: Failure to do things correctly after being trained, Failure to follow orders, etc.

General Discharge
The Leadership Team deems the staff member unfit to be staff. Staff member didn't cause trouble or act up but is not fit to be staff in the eyes of Management. Things that would warrant this: Not being active, Failing training, Too many accidents, Community doesn't like you, etc

Permission Revoked or Demotion
Staff member is not performing well or has done something to warrant being moved to a lower rank.

A strike is a point against their rank for failing to do something correctly or getting out of line. If a staff member receives 3-5 warnings/strikes/points in less then 2 weeks, they are fully demoted aka discharged.

Verbal Warning
This is where their supervisor/commander/superior corrects them on something or lets them know to stop something before it escalates.

(Not a punishment):
Honorable Discharge

This is what all staff members should shoot for at the end of their career. An honorable discharge is where a staff member respectfully did their job but has to either retire/resign because they feel they can't do the job anymore or irl reasons. Staff member received a good or excellent rating for their service time, by exceeding stands for performance and personal conduct, they will be discharged honorably. Honorably discharged staff receive the "Retired Staff Member" rank along with many retirement benefits. Good recommendations from us will be given to any employer they try to get employed at.
