- No griefing! This means any form of modification of others’ work or defacing of the landscape for no purpose other than to make it look bad. This also includes leaving treetops floating in the air.
- No thievery. Do not take anything from any chest/building/etc. that isn’t explicitly marked as for the public.
- Do NOT engage in any form of attack. This means no heated arguments, no profanity, no hate speech, no harassing people, and any other kind of communication or action that the staff deems harmful.
- Do NOT modify others’ work without their permission. If you wish to help, ask them. This includes your best buddy, as he could still get mad at you.
- Do NOT build single block towers, or large holes with no purpose. They’re annoying, look bad, and the holes can be a risk to players if fall damage is ever turned on.
- Do NOT ask for generated materials. All materials must be found or created legitimately. Unless a staff member has killed you with their unnatural control of lightning and fire, your inventory is forfeited upon death.
- Check a town’s rules before building there. They should be at the town’s warp structure (actual location may vary).
- The use of an alternate account, or any other method, in order to evade a punishment (such as a mute or ban) is not allowed. If you do attempt to avoid serving a punishment, the ban/mute may be extended and any alternate accounts may be banned as well.
- Do NOT advertise other servers as a general rule. Most of the time, you may message someone privately to ask if they’d like some information regarding another server, but don’t annoy people.
- The possession and/or use of any skins or usernames that are deemed offensive, discriminatory, and/or in poor taste is not allowed. Please keep your skin and username free of anything that could be considered racist, sexist, profane, inappropriate, or the like. We welcome you to play on Byte with a new skin or username that is acceptable, but you will not be permitted to play on the server otherwise.
- The creation of any buildings, structures, signs, pixel art, and so on that are deemed offensive, discriminatory, and/or in poor taste is not allowed. Please keep your creations free of anything that could be considered racist, sexist, profane, inappropriate, or the like. Any such creations will be removed.
- Anything done on your account is YOUR responsibility. If anyone manages to get on your account and grief, you will be banned because we can’t be sure that it wasn’t you; also, your password should be strong enough to deter hackers.
The rules are also available translated here.
Punishment will be administered at the discretion of the attending staff member. Also, the staff reserve the right to administer punishment to any player if that player is being a nuisance to others on the server even if they are not breaking any explicit rules.
