- No random recording.
- Do not echo. If you do not have a headset, PTT is required.
Rules are global. For example, this means that you may NOT break a server rule on the forums
If you have to ask if you are allowed to do something, or it is questionable, Just don't do it. It doesn't need to be explicitly stated to be against the rules.
If you find someone has broken the rules, do not hesitate to collect screenshots and post them in the Reports section of the forums.
Additionally, you can use the "Report" button in the bottom right corner of the post.
How can i get X rank?
Well, some ranks are applied for, and some are granted by admins. Do not ask for a rank.
You may also donate for special privileges, see the donate tab.
Hey mod/admin, can you spawn me X?
Short answer: NO.
Long answer: Mods and admins are not
walking vending machines.
It is against the spirit of the game to hand out spawned items.
How do I become a Pauper?
You start out as a Nooble, to become a Pauper, you must have a positive impact on the server. Contrary to popular belief, you do not
simply become a pauper after playing for a while.
How do I become a Noble? How many votes do I need?
Most ranks, such as noble, must be applied for on the forums. For noble, you should actively play for at very least two weeks, and then use the template provided. Proper spelling and grammar are a must. Once you have made a thread with your application, fellow players and staff members will review it.
The amount of votes is irrelevant. Staff make the ultimate decision. If you have been determined worthy, you will be granted the rank.
Allow up to 2 weeks for your application to be voted upon.
I don't want to be a noble. I want to be an Elder now!
Okay... That wasn't a question. Elder is not a player rank
. Very few people aspire to be Elders, you will be invited to apply by a staff member if you are eligible.
Who is Chlikikijleelgus?

Something is broken/I have a suggestion for the website, Who do i tell?
The webmaster is always looking for good ideas. Send him an email at Chlikikijleelgus@Cobaltium.net, or PM him on the forums.
What are Noobills? How do I get them?
The official currency of Cobaltium is the Noobill. They can be used for transactions in shops or directly to players. Chest shops will automatically deduct the money from your wallet when used. You start with a small amount of Noobills, and to get more you need to sell to other players.
- /money -Shows how much money you have
- /money pay [player] [X] - Gives [X] noobills to [player]
What are kits?
Kits are sets of items you can select based off of your rank. For example, '/kit nooble' will give you a set of wooden tools, and two raw fish.
I have been banned! What do I do?
If you have been banned, you may post a ban appeal on the forums, in this section
