Please remember we aim for the Hypixel Server to be a fun and safe place for players to communicate and interact with each other respectfully. We encourage players to cooperate and compete in a positive environment, but never in a way that disrespects or abuses other players (which includes usernames).
My username was blocked
If you're met with the screen below, the selected username for the account is considered inappropriate for the network and goes against our rules, which you can read at https://hypixel.net/rules.
How do I join the server again?
The account will have access again once the name changes, provided it is appropriate. If you believe your username was blocked in error, please create an appeal here.
For assistance creating an appeal, please read our guide at https://hypixel.net/appeal.
How can I avoid this happening?
In short, if you have to ask if something is appropriate, it is probably a good idea to avoid using it. Just because you can change your name to any username does not mean it is appropriate for the Hypixel Network.
