Rules

BV Jail !!

 

Please read our Server Rules before joining, they will help you get along with the other players of the server and have a good time!

Staff will decide your penalty if you violate the rules, but since the server is also for players who have not played MineCraft before, staff will make an informed decision, as everyone should have a chance to get to know the rules and the game

  1. Keep BV Family Friendly
  • The use of mild language, such as ‘damn’ or ‘hell’ is the most excessive language allowed. Every type of profanity has a nicer alternative, so please use those instead. Most inappropriate words are filtered on BV, so don’t try to bypass this.
  • Even censored or abbreviated foul language is not allowed. Acronyms are acceptable as long as you do not spell out the full meaning with a banned word (Example: lmao is okay).
  • Keep in mind the topics of your discussion/gameplay. Things like drugs, alcohol, sexual activities, etc are not suitable for our server because we are Family Friendly.

  1. Do Not Be Rude to Others
  • No insults, name-calling, or other general rude behavior against other players. Harassment/Bullying is not tolerated on BV.
  • Do not make public accusations against or slander (talk bad about) other players.
  • Be mindful and tolerant of players with other religions, ethnic backgrounds, political views, etc. than what you may have. Everyone is entitled to their opinion.
  • The use of all caps is the same as shouting and is considered rude.
  • If you have a question about what is seen as rude, ask a Staff member.

  1. Do Not Touch What Isn’t Yours
  • Stealing or breaking blocks that aren’t yours (griefing) is not allowed anywhere on BV.
  • BV has an Anti-Griefing Systemto protect your belongings, but no one should touch what isn’t theirs to touch. Even if you find an unlocked chest in the wild and no one is around, it is not yours to take and therefore should be left alone.

  1. Do Not Hack, Cheat, or Exploit
  • Do not use any mods, macros or game bugs that give a significant advantage over other players. This includes any aspect that allows xray vision, cave finder, radar, block glitches, etc. This also includes anything that may allow you to move, jump, or fly in a way not intended by the default game settings. Even if it’s a server-side bug, do not abuse it. Stop and report the issue immediately to a Staff member.
  • Automating actions, including – but not limited to – using auto-clickers, is legal as long as you are not AFK while doing so and the ability does not exceed normal play ability. Kill auras, fast-clicking, etc are NOT normal play ability. You must be aware, and able to respond to staff and Minecraft at all times.

  1. Do Not Harm Other Players
  • No form of PvP is allowed in Survival Beginner. This includes any indirect methods of harming another player.

  1. Do Not Spam
  • This includes the use of repetitive punctuation, letters, messages, words, etc.
  • Please use English/Danish in public Chat channels. In all public chats, the use of other languages is not allowed because a staff member is not able to ensure you are abiding by all BV related rules.
  • The use of external characters/fonts is prohibited. It shows up as ???’s in the staff logs and is therefore disallowed regardless of the character you are trying to make.

  1. Follow All Extra Rules
  • These rules must also be followed, but don’t fit into any of the above categories.
  • Do not cause public drama.
  • Intentionally doing anything that is likely to cause public upset, arguments, riots, or any other negative action, for any reason, is not allowed.
