    Many beginners enter a server and are confused as they are either restricted to a small portion of the map to build, and are unable to build out into the larger areas, or are spawned into these unbreakable cages.
    Now, if you are completely new to Minecraft Classic, you would probably have no idea what was going on. Well, I will explain it for you!

    The restricted zones: The restricted zones are there for a reason! They are for the new people who join the server and have not proven themselves good builders who follow the rules. Now don't get discouraged and leave because of this! It is generally not very difficult to gain the Builder Rank. You just need to show an admin that you know the rules of the server, you are not a person to destroy other's creations, and that you build appropriate structures (The rules vary throughout every server, but this is generally the default set of rules. Inappropriate structures would be something like a swastika, etc.). Once you gain the Builder Rank, you are now able to build in a larger portion of the map, if not all of it. Remember, if you start destroying the creations outside, an Admin can easily take away that Builder rank, so don't grief!

    The Indestructible Cages: The way these are used vary a lot. Sometimes they are used because the server is merely only for people to look at the well made structures. Sometimes they are made to gather the people joining the server, and those who stay for a long time, and let the admins know that they have reviewed the rules, and will be good, are allowed out and build.

    I'll add more on here if I remember some other important details, I'm running on an hour of sleep right now, so I may have stated something wrong or forgotten something, so just post on here if I have and I can add it :)

    Thanks for reading,
    Time

    Thanks :) I remember when I started and had no idea what to do, and most people would just ignore me when I asked. Hopefully this will help!

    I never really realized people would question "why" there are guest zones, but this is a great read for those who don't know.

    Thanks :) I've always found reading guides for new players is helpful, and so making one seemed appropriate.

    *facepalms* No no, the Seeecret Updates, are just updates, they'd give us something Notch told us about, and usually one or two things he didn't. So people would search for the "seeecret"

    Also, by international law, we have to refer to Seeecret Updates, as Seeecret updates, else Notch will find us and summon a real life creeper to blow up our home
