Valegate Server In Depth Rules


Staff member
Jul 19, 2018
Basic Rules
1. You are responsible for your own account.

- You will be punished for whatever rules your account breaks. Saying that someone else did something on your account will never be accepted as an excuse.

2. Use common sense

- It would be impossible for us to list every possible wrong doing in the rules. Use your common sense of right and wrong to guide your actions on the server.
You can still be punished for things that are not explicitly stated in the rules.

3. Using an alternate account to evade a punishment is NOT allowed

Chat Rules
4. Advertising is NOT allowed

- Do not mention servers that are not part of the Valegate's community in public chat or private messages

5. Swearing is allowed, but do not overdo it or use it to harass other players

- There is a fine line to walk when swearing, so be careful with it. Staff members will determine whether or not your swearing has become excessive.

6. Bigotry/hate speech including but not limited to ethnicity, age, gender, sexual orientation, nationality, and religion is NOT allowed

- This especially includes racist or homophobic comments

7. Harassment and excessive trolling are NOT allowed

8. Spamming and excessive use of capital letters are NOT allowed

9. Sexual discussions in public chat are NOT allowed

10. DDoS threats or threats of real-life violence are NOT allowed

11. Impersonating or "pretending to be" someone that you are not is NOT allowed

12. Posting other player's personal information without their consent is NOT allowed

13. Using languages besides English in public chat is NOT allowed

Gameplay Rules
14. Griefing, raiding, and scamming are NOT allowed

- This means you cannot steal from or destroy from other player's work, EVEN if is it not claimed. You must also respect a player's area.
If they ask you to leave or to not build right next to them, listen to them.

15. Cheating the AFK Kicker is NOT allowed

We have the AFK Kicker enabled for a reason, it isn't there to be pretty.

16. Exploiting glitches/mistakes is NOT allowed

- If you find something that can be exploited, report it to a staff member immediately. Using a exploit to benefit yourself will get you banned.

17. Offensive builds are NOT allowed

18. Using AutoClickers, Macros, or "a weight on your keyboard" is NOT allowed

For the most part, any modifications that do not give you an advantage in gameplay are fine. For example, mods like Optifine and Armor HUD are perfectly fine. Gamma/turning up your brightness is also acceptable. However, there are modifications to your game that are definitely not allowed.

20. Making use of any of the features of a hacked client is NOT allowed

21. X-Ray mods and X-Ray resource packs are NOT allowed

22. Minimap mods are allowed as long as they do not map out caves
