SourceCBL – Source Community Ban List


SourceCBL is a non-profitable organization that lets other communities keep hackers out of their SourceMod servers without having to ban them on their own, by using our database containing all hackers from multiple communities.

We strive after improving the gameplay on all Source-related games and we can achieve this by having our own powerful API that everyone can use to prevent listed hackers from connecting to their servers.

All bans in our database are submitted by community admins and our own staff, while following a very strict policy to ensure quality of our bans.

    I'm not sure if I can trust SourceCBL, are your bans really legit?

    We set strict requirements on the proof (.dem files) that are both submitted to us and collected by us. This means that the only way a ban can be marked as invalid is if the judgement of the person who issued the ban was poor, which is why we also have all of our .dem files available to the public – as in that case an appeal would be necessary.

    We also make sure that all necessary information is available in the .dem file, meaning that we always will have to correct data of the cheater available. Mistakes are very rarely made.

    You can read more about our requirements here.
