    10. Punishment Evasion/Aid in Ban Evasion:
    If you are banned or temporarily suspended from playing on Decimation, do not attempt to join on a secondary or alternative account. This counts as attempted ban evasion.

    12. Spawn Killing
    If you kill any person within 25 blocks from the safe-zone border and run back, camp outside the spawn safe-zone (within the 25 block mark) it counts as spawn camping. Quickly running outside of spawn killing someone and running back is considered spawn protection abuse. (Which is also spawn camping).
    Bans:
    1st Offense: One hour ban.
    2nd Offense: One day ban.
    3rd Offense: One week ban.

    The 25 block count is represented by a red sign with a white dash in the center. ⚠
    (Camping just outside this line and waiting for people to leave is not allowed.)
