An overview of available player ranks and how to attain them
List of Ranks
Project City Build has ranks belonging to several categories. Players can belong to up at most 1 rank in each category, simultaneously.
Guest is the default rank for people who view our site, or join our Minecraft server. You will have basic commands such as /warp and /tpa and you will be able to build in survival.
Member is granted upon registering for a PCB account. It is the minimum rank required to build in Creative. It comes with a range of additional commands such as /home and allows you to post and participate on our forums.
Trusted is earned through time and commitment to the PCB community and it’s values. If a staff member believes you are trustworthy, they may nominate you for this rank. Trusted comes with a large array of additional commands, including access to armour stand tools (/ast) and the ability to build in Monarch.
Trusted+ is the highest obtainable non-staff rank. The Trusted+ rank is awarded to (non-staff) members of the community who are stand out examples within our community. Players with this rank are the most Trusted in our community by the staff team. This rank has all the perks of the Trusted and Donator ranks, with the added advantage of being allowed to apply for WorldEdit (W/E) and getting early access to new projects and map resets.

Administrators perform other staff duties within the community, such as processing player reports and organising the server at a macro level. They have access to a variety of tools that allow them to maintain the internal operation of all PCB services, such as the Minecraft servers, the website and more.
An overview of our parallel ladder system, and how you can progress up each ladder
Ranks are broken down into two separate ladders:
🔨build skill and 💕community trust.
These two ladders are completely independent of each other and players can belong to one or both.
Why two ladders?
Project City Build is primarily a creative building community. Therefore, players who demonstrate building proficiency are rewarded with increasing access to more powerful (and inherently more dangerous) tools to support their building projects via builder ranks.
That being said, we're also a close-knit community, and not all players want to be constantly pushing the limit of their building abilities. We reward active and friendly members of our community with trust ranks that give access to all sorts of cosmetic effects, fun commands and more.
Moving up the Builder Rank ladder involves building something cool on the server and then submitting it for review. To remove bias and partiality, all submissions are reviewed by the Architect Council - a panel of some of the best builders in our community (don't worry! They won't bite)
