1. Content Rules

Everyone playing is a human, please be mindful and respectful in your communication. We will not tolerate conduct that is harmful, harassing, obscene, hateful, abusive, inflammatory, intimidating, violent, or encouraging of violence (including self harm), stalking, sexually explicit, or otherwise objectionable to the server’s discretion. This includes chat, nicknames, builds, skins, capes, and any other form of communication done through the server.

Sensible, well-thought-out speech will make everyone’s day better. Remember that the players on the other side of the screen are people like you.


2. Cheating, Client Modifications, and Exploiting Bugs

You are not permitted to use any hacks, cracks, bots, or third-party software that may modify the experience of the server, either locally or on the servers. Any of these modifications should be immediately reported to staff.

The server allow the following categories of modifications, subject to change at our discretion:

  • Performance, graphics, and aesthetic modifications (including shaders and OptiFine)
  • Armor, status, and HUD modifications that do not give a significant advantage
  • Health indicators
  • Minimaps that show the ground level and do not show players
  • Recipe modifications
  • Sprint toggle

The use of any client modifications other than the allowed categories listed above is strictly forbidden and enforced. If you have any modifications that you are unsure about, contact a staff member.

We specifically disallow the following modifications, sobject to change at our discretion:

  • Automated movements (walking, fighting, aiming, fishing, mining, etc.)
  • Consistent movements triggered by laying something on your keyboard/mouse (to keep mining/walking or similar)
  • Vision enhancements (x-ray, trackers, tracer, wallhack, etc.)
  • Fighting cheats (anti-knockback, bunnyhop, kill-aura, etc.)
  • Spoofing cheats (ping spoof)
  • Any change to the way you connect to our server (proxy or other connection)

The use of third-party software that gives a significant advantage to anyone is also strictly forbidden. This includes the use of macros or hotkeys that trigger automated clicks or movements on a more than 1-to-1 ratio (1 input = 1 output).

Any category other than these are considered illegal. If you have any modifications that you may be curious about, please contact a staff member. Responsibility of using these are completely on the player.

We have a very advanced shop system on our servers that allows you to buy and sell pretty much any items in the game. This means it is very hard for us to patch all exploits in the shop. If you stumble upon a way to rake in loads of money using the shop in a very short amount of time report this to a staff member and do not use this for your advantage because you will be banned eventually. Abusing exploits in the shop on a massive scale might even lead to a permanent ban from our server.

If you find anyone breaking the rules, please report them using the ticketing system. Be mindful and respectful even when reporting players. Hostile, disrespectful, or crude comments about players will be discarded as spam.


3. Alternate Accounts

We allow the use of one main account and one alternate account. Any players found to be using more than two accounts will have all of their accounts blocked.

We define "using more than two accounts" as having more than two accounts (your main account and your alternate account) online at the same time, or using more than two accounts to claim kits, be in your faction, or to otherwise gain an in-game advantage.

Any account used to evade your restriction will result in your original restriction duration being extended.


4. Using a VPN or Proxy

We do not allow any use of a proxy server or VPN to connect to our servers. Any proxy server or VPN discovered to be used to connect to our servers will be permanently banned by IP address. All accounts that have ever connected through a discovered proxy or VPN may also be permanently banned, depending on the situation.

If you do not know what a VPN or proxy is, you are probably not using one and you do not risk being banned.


5. AFK Activity & Macroing/Botting

If we can prove your focus is not in-game while you are performing game-related action (literally anything except being completely inactive), you may be banned. Our methods to detect AFK activity may include messaging, teleportation, or anything else to get your attention.

Macroing (or botting) movements or actions are not allowed, this falls under rule 2. Cheating, Client Modifications, and Exploiting Bugs


6. Impersonation and Pseudo-Staffing

Do not impersonate staff or pretend to be a staff member. Staff members can be recognized by the red prefix/tag on their names. Do not pretend to be something you’re not. This includes false claims about relationships with staff members.

We appreciate players helping other players, but please do not act as though you are a staff member. This is a form of impersonation, even if do not explicitly state that you are on or related to the staff team. Do not answer questions you are unsure of or share server-related speculations that have not been confirmed (unless you clearly state that you are unsure).

If you have applied for staff or plan to apply for staff in the future and start off by helping others, that’s wonderful--but remember that you are not staff yet, and that you should not act like or answer questions as if you are a staff member. We welcome and encourage gameplay-related help and assistance, which promotes community and an enjoyable environment. We discourage commanding attitudes and server-related assumptions/speculation.


7. Spam

Spam is not allowed. The following are considered spam:

  • Repeating similar messages frequently
  • Messages consisting of a large amount of capital letters
  • A large number of messages in a short period of time (such as a countdown)

What is considered spam is to the sole discretion of Becto staff members.


8. Advertising

Advertising any other server in-game or on the forums is forbidden.
Sending any URL that is not on our whitelist (below) in any of our public chats is against the rules and will get you muted, please don't do it.

URL Whitelist:

  • becto.net
  • youtube.com
  • gyazo.com
  • imgur.com
  • prntscr.com

If you believe a domain should be added to this whitelist, please forward it to a staff member.


9. Account Security and Sharing

You are responsible for the security and use of your Becto and Minecraft accounts. You will be held accountable for all activity coming from your account, even if you were not in control of the account at the time. To avoid any problems, do not share your account. If the account is shared and one person breaks the rules, the punishment is applied to the account, regardless of account ownership. Use a strong password, and consider changing your password frequently, and never share your password.

Becto staff will never ask for your account password for any reason.


10. Trading / Selling

Becto does not take responsibility for the trade of any Becto merchandise on the web-shop or in-game. Becto is not liable for any loss or fraud that occurs while trading.

We do accept responsibility for any Becto shop purchases that are made and not received by the paying party. Staff members do not have any authority or ability to address purchase-related issues. To report such an issue, create a ticket or email [email protected] to have your purchase issues reviewed and addressed.

Any kind of trade for a purchase on the webshop is expressly forbidden. If you believe another user has purchased something for on your behalf, or if you have receive a purchase without your knowledge, you are to report this to the staff as soon as possible so the purchase can be reverted to prevent fraud and to prevent your account being banned due to it. If you do make a trade for webshop items and the other party tries to revert the purchase, your account will automatically be banned by our webshop, and you will take the responsibility to solve the situation.

Selling or buying anything other than items from our webshop (including things such as capes/minecraft accounts) is forbidden.


11. Survival/Skyblock Rules

Survival and Skyblock are considered non-hostile servers, any sort of trapping, camping, tp killing is not allowed.

Camping: Do not camp other player’s spawn-point or houses. You may ambush a player once or twice, but do not overextend your stay.

Griefing/Raiding: Sponge and island protection makes this practically impossible, but don’t do it. Placing sponges next to other players claims against their will is also not allowed, this could prevent them from expanding their area which is griefing.

Trapping and TP Killing: No trapping of any kind is allowed. If someone teleports to you, your warp, or your island, they should not be restricted from leaving, and should not be in immediate danger, or be in danger by moving a few steps. If you teleport to another player, you must not place them in any danger.

Scamming: Survival & Skyblock are mostly friendly servers, but we cannot prevent scamming, and we will not assist you in recovering losses if a player scams you. Use the auction house to make safe trade. We do not take responsibility for scams in the auction house, so pay close attention when making purchases--be aware that the name of a renamed item will appear in italics (slanted text). You may report players who are attempting to scam others, and we may apply a restriction to their account, but we will absolutely not refund or compensate victims.


12. Factions Rules

Griefing/Raiding: Intentionally destroying buildings of other players is allowed on the Factions server.

Scamming: It may not be pleasant to be scammed by another player, but scamming is allowed on the Factions server. Use the auction house to make safe trade. We do not take responsibility for scams in the auction house, so pay close attention when making purchases--be aware that the name of a renamed item will appear in italics (slanted text).

Trapping: Death traps are allowed, which means you may create places where players will die when teleporting to you. It is not allowed to get another player stuck in an area that they are unable to get out of (such as a portal trap). Keep in mind you can always get out of enemy territory by typing /suicide.

Power Boosting: Any Faction that is caught using multiple alt accounts to boost the power of the Faction will have all accounts permanently banned and the Faction disbanded. You are allowed to have your main account and your one alt account in your Faction, anymore than this is not allowed. If there are alt accounts in a Faction with no main account (VPN alting) this will also result in the same punishment.


13. Prison Rules

Scamming: It may not be pleasant to be scammed by another player, but scamming is allowed on the Prison server. Use the auction house to make safe trade. We do not take responsibility for scams in the auction house, so pay close attention when making purchases--be aware that the name of a renamed item will appear in italics (slanted text).

Sign Scamming: Even with all of the above said, we do disallow one type of scam on Prison. Sign scamming is where there is a hidden sign that tricks players into thinking they are clicking a button or lever. The sign is desgined to scam players out of their money without the player even knowing its possible.

Trapping: Death traps are not allowed in any way shape or form, which means you may not create places where players will die when teleporting to you or your area. It is not allowed to get another player stuck in an area that they are unable to get out of (such as a portal trap).

TP Killing: You are allowed to bait players in teleporting to you with the intention of killing them, this goes with the nature of the prison server.
