NOTICE - Boosting Value & Minimum Prices

This thread covers everything there is to know about the 'boosting value' rule.

Before we start...
  • Due to all the recent confusion, we are going to hand out verbal warnings for minor offences. Note that this is purely at our discretion and if you get struck immediately while someone else receives a verbal warning instead, there is a reason for that, so don't use it as an argument to support your claim.
  • This thread is subject to change at any time without prior notice. It is your responsibility to check it regularly to see if anything changes.
  • If you feel like something written here should be changed, please suggest it HERE.
  • While we don't strictly disallow some actions, we clearly label them here as something you shouldn't do. Failing to follow that might get you punished.
  • If you get punished for boosting/sharing value, your disqualification is permanent throughout the whole season.
  • Other disqualifiable actions which are not listed here are purely at your own risk.
What is boosting value?
Boosting value is an act of using shady or forbidden ways to increase your island's value. This results in a disqualification from the Island Top competition. Below, you can see what is allowed and what is not. Note that some items have minimum prices for which you can sell them, so going lower might get you punished.
  • Buying realms e-ores for lower than their value¹ - Disallowed
  • Selling spawners/mines world ores for a low price¹ - Disallowed
  • Gifting mining backpacks/special ability pickaxes - Disallowed
  • Gifting sell wands/head wands/crystal wands - Disallowed
  • Gifting spawners/currencies/realms e-ores - Disallowed
  • Using gkits that are proven not to belong to you or anyone from your island - Disallowed
  • Making a public grinder² - Disallowed
  • Selling gkits/ranks for Pika gold or gift cards - Use at your own risk³
  • Selling spawners for Pika gold or gift cards - Use at your own risk³
  • Trading any type of currency - Allowed
  • Trading gsets/PvP items - Allowed
¹ Certain items have specific values attached to them which competitive players are expected to follow. Read further to find out the exact values of each item. Note that going below them may get you punished.

² A public grinder is an area where players can teleport to kill mobs from your spawners so you can get the loot from them. Competitive players are not allowed to profit in this way and you can get punished for making such a grinder.

³ When selling gkits or spawners for Pika gold or gift cards, contact a member of Team SkyBlock before conducting the trade and make sure they are online to middleman it. This means that you are going to give them the items before receiving the gold. After you receive the gold, you are going to provide a full-screen screenshot of the received gold to the staff member and they will give you the items if everything goes according to plan. Please ask a member of Team SkyBlock if you have further questions about this. We strongly discourage pursuing these trades without a Team SkyBlock staff member to middleman your trade as it can result in a misunderstanding and a punishment for boosting value.

This also includes spawner bundles. However, this does not include spawners that are not in /shop since they don't add to the island value. As for experience-related trades, stick to the following:
  • 1 experience = $2000 (in value)
So if you wish to sell a sheep spawner (worth $120k) for experience, you should sell it for 60 experience.
