Welcome to the forums, servers, and most importantly, community!

I'm almost tempted not to post this. All those little grammatical errors were killing me over and over, but I shall pass the information on anyway (although still. Ach, grammar!):

[lingo?]
Apart from the occasional indulgance in internet speak (lol.) there isn't much here,
the only ones that I can think of are:

Admin: Administrator, owner of the server (Sgt.Spike)
Mod: Moderator, like an admin with less powers, there to help when Spike isn't around.
VIP: Very Important person, gained by donating $15.00 (€11.00 or £9.00)
Griefer: The people who gain enjoyment from destroying other peoples hard-worked structures.
Hacker: Someone who uses client-side mods to gain advantages over players, such as items, fast moving, etc.


[rules]
viewtopic.php?f=9&t=53

These are the build server rules. Obey them and we will get on fine.

viewtopic.php?f=33&t=480
PvP server rules.
This is in the rules already, but some people still miss out on it, so for good measure:
If an admin asks you to cooperate, DO. Mods are not invulnerable gods that you must
never harm, but when they need you to do something, please try and comply as best
within your limits, attacking a mod when they require your help is a banable offense.


[useful links]
Aside from the most useful link, the rules, there are a few others.
Sgt.Spike is god: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=379
The best spam ever: viewtopic.php?f=14&t=994
Find us everywhere: viewtopic.php?f=14&t=391
Central hub of activity: viewforum.php?f=9

[want someone banned?]

viewforum.php?f=11

Remember, this is NOT a "this guy annoyed me, ban pl0x" thread, this is for actual
rule breakers, hackers, and general gits, don't over-do it.

[been banned?]

viewforum.php?f=25
Lets hope you never end up here.
Make sure to make your post clear, giving such details as who banned you, where you were,
what might have caused the ban, the time, the date, and your in-game name.
Try not to use shortisms, you wouldn't say "lol unban pl0x" in the same way you wouldn't
say "lol let me out of jail pl0x".

SgtSpike said:
BE TRUTHFUL. It's pretty easy to tell when someone is trying to cover up and make themselves look good. Don't think that the mods don't communicate with each other. If you have the slightest mistruth in your statement, your chances for having your appeal granted go down dramatically.

The more details, the better. While I don't want to see a novel, knowing why you believe you were banned is essential.

[donate?]

Donating costs $15.00, €11.00, or £9.00 (source source), it's a one-time payment and funds go to upgrading the
very same server. Spike puts a lot of work into the server, the forums, and admining the entire thing, and there's still benefits to be had!
@Your very own special blue name on servers AND forums!
@up to 3 Private warps on PvP, and up to 5 on build!
@A warm fuzzy feeling!
@Permanent Reserved slot!
@Access to top-secret top-awesome cities.
@Secured underground vault for VIPs on the Build server (uses one of your private warps, but can't be broken into)
@Access to the VIP section on the forum!
@Admins can Teleport you to fellow members at any time (with their permission)!

Donate link: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=8

[some people have oddly coloured names]

Indeed they do.
Grey: Normal member, but still awesome.
Blue: VIP, Donator to the server
Dark Green: server Mod on a two-week testing period
Light green: Full server mod, has responsibility and can ban, silence, and kick.
Orange: Global Mod. Server AND forum mod, has access to the server files, more power then a usual mod.
Red: The one and only Sgt.Spike, owner and creator of the server, forums, and just about everything.

[I need some items, but I don't want to hack and can't seem to find any of it]

viewforum.php?f=21
Your problems are solved in that link, there you can make arrangements to trade items and advertise anything you're selling.

[I perfer PvP though...]

viewforum.php?f=33
all your PvP needs in one thread.

[I'm a budding genius with limitless ideas for the server and/or forums, to improve it and make things easier]

Then you are more then welcome here:
viewforum.php?f=13

And now, a word from the ingenius geniuses that are the admins, mods, VIPs, and Regs
of play.minecraft.

On Items:

SgtSpike said:
Trust me - if people know that there are good treasures inside, they will mine through a hundred blocks of obsidian to get to it.
On Bans:

oliverw92 said:
Bans are like puppies - they are for life, not just christmas
On Building:

everyone said:
The farther away from spawn you are, the less likely you'll be griefed.
On Chest Protect:

SgtSpike said:
There will be no chest-protect on the servers, because people tend to place chests in the open relying on chest-protect to save it from
griefers, however if/when chest-protect breaks all their valuables are out in the open. Keeping CP off encourages hiding chests.
On Moving PvP spawn (and something wrong with red-heads o.0):

SgtSpike said:
Spawn gives me a sense of security and identity. If we move spawn, we move my identity. Which means, I could end up being a little red-headed girl wearing polkadotted stretchy pants.



...I like the apocolyptic look of the current spawn.
On being a Mod:

ultimateironman said:
A lot of people want to be a mod for the same reason that a lot of people want to be cops.

"ohhhh, i want to be able to ban ppl!" ? a good Mod
"ohhhh, i want to be able to shoot ppl!" ? a good Cop
Again, welcome to the forums, and the community, well done on reading this far down.

Enjoy your stay!

I'll admit no more Atari... When nintendo came out, got it a little late as a lot of things when I was young(poor). But my mom spoiled me the best she could. Being so young out with old in with new, last time I played Atari... 1994??? As far as NES, SEGA, SNES got a few thousand games(all) modded to my old XBox. Funny thing the XBox doesn't play games anymore but I keep it cause it still plays emulators lol.( just bought new controllers for it{used}). Atari memories, ahhh I could fill a forum... That's awesome Eagle I would like to find a way to acquire all the Atari ports, thoughts bring feelings of nostalgia!!!
