As we know, we've recently had another griefer attack. We rolled it back and got over it fairly quickly, why waste our time? We at first banned suspected participants, well we're amending that. We've got a new, better plan.
We hate the server, no... we despise it. We've grown to detest it more then Johnecash. Ok, maybe a little less... but it's close. For those who enjoy the thrill of building something great, and who enjoy the fun of it all. We're starting over again for the time being.
We can at any point revert to the current world of giant-boxes side by side and more chaos then an inner city.
We're making a new world with a new seed and for the time being very simple rules.
Don't be rude to others.
Pick a lot and stick to it.
All caverns/mines are open game to everyone, no exceptions, no first dibs, no claims.
Depending on how this week works out we may revert by the end of it, we may not. We're not sure yet. In the meantime those of you who wish to continue enjoying the server are free to do so, those whom were banned are for the time being unbanned, and the server is fresh and new again. And please, for everyone's sake, don't build your cobble castle in the middle of a already colonized port-town and ruin the waters by clogging them up.
Given the popularity of the server we are openly advertising that we are looking for new moderators. Specifically in timezones other then Eastern USA... (Or rather, playing in other timezones. We don't care where you live).
The server updated to 1.6, however not all of the plugins did. So at the moment to our knowledge you cannot lock chests. To work around this for the time being, we recommend hiding your valuables in a secret chest hidden somewhere special.
We would also like to address the subject of the Mods versus Admins, and the differences between the two.
On the server as we know the groups are Useless, Regulars, Moderators, and Admins. Moderator is the highest one should ever hope to aspire to.
Admins have the ability to spawn items at their leisure, why you may ask? For the simple reason of Admins are the ones who keep the server running. Both Financially and Technically Admins are the tip of the spear in ensuring flaws go unhitched and in the event of wide-scale griefing the latest backup can be restored.
Moderators on the other hand Do Not have the ability to spawn items at leisure. Moderators are a special group of players hand-selected by the Admins to monitor the server while the admins are not around and maintain order between players. They have the abilities they need to get the job done, but otherwise are just like regulars in that they also need to work for their supplies. Although there has been talk of a weekly allowance in Diamond Blocks...
To become a Moderator requires the support of nearly everyone on the server, aswell as a recommendation from at least 1 mod other then SaintKitsune. Then it's subject to Kitsune whether or not someone is actually made a mod.
If a Mod or Admin is abusing their power too heavily and impeding on a Regular's gaming experience, it's the responsibility of the Regular to document it and report it directly to us.
And just because we care... A song for all of you.
To ensure everyone able to get the memo... here's a new post.
Alright ladies and gents, Children of all ages...
The new world isn't exactly as ready as it should be for all of you, but we are sure all of you are ready for it! The Whitelist is currently off, and anyone can join again. Although, be prepared for a small surprise in your entrance...
The rules are generally the same. You'll find them all where you spawn.
We have opened the doors before we could build our mega-fortress or community fortress for that matter... and as such for a limited time monsters are actually turned off.
However before going any further, we would like to reinforce this one simple concept. We assume if your on Sharenator, you already know how to screenshot? Well here's the thing ladies and gents... While we do have alternative systems in place, the absolute best thing you can do if you see anyone doing anything bad, or anything that could be considered evidence in griefing, is screenshot it and report it to us.
How should you let us know? Easy! Post the picture of the little bastard on this very sharenator post! Just remember if you accuse someone falsely you'll be in trouble too...
For our server to survive we'll need your cooperation...
...for our server to strive we'll need you to help as much as you can!
So without further annoyingness...
The server info, once again, is still
