Oh you guys. I thought I could get away, but your server keeps its fangs firmly in my arm.

Hello one and all :) After... what, a year (?)s break, I've decided to return. And so I have, if you'll take me.

I must admit real life caught up on me a bit. After a fair bit of sulking, working, specialists, and saving damsels in distress from dragons, I've decided I have enough time... to re-join.

Well... most of that is true.

I'm amazed to see the "say something above you" thread is still going. I feel special.

Anyway. I'm back, I'm bad, I've almost had my birthday, and Spike will soon recieve his (long overdue) donation.

Viva le Valkolution!

Valk.

Hello again! We're glad you like our jaws, they are one of the biggest attractions of the server. Especially Marine's jaws, those things are huge! :p Anyways, welcome back, I hope you stay a long time :D

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

Do you think you're ready for this? Do you think you can handle the incoming? :D

[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.

Important: have proof. Sgt.Spike can't/won't ban someone on trust alone (usually, although I try not to take words out of his mouth.) Try get a screenshot of the conversation if the rule-breaker is swearing, or a screenshot of the hacker if someone's hacking. However, if the target is suspect using hacks to get items, call on a mod in-game or using the chatbox on the forums and s/he'll check it out.

Screenshots are taken by pressing f2, and can be found in %appdata%\.minecraft\screenshots on windows machines.

I'm unsure about where it's saved to on a Mac, if you have an idea please feel free to share.

[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!

@Access to top-secret top-awesome cities.

[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.

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!

Haha, no problem Valk. I resurrected it just for you.

Some things do need to be changed now, though. For instance, we do have a chest protect plugin called Lockette now. The Global Mod name color doesn't exist, and we use Mumble now, instead of Vent. Just in case, you know... you decide to start doing the M-M-MONSTER POST again *hint hint*

Hi, welcome to the server? lol pretty sure I welcomed you in game many many many months ago.

edits needed,
  • Useful Links, maybe the wiki? lots of new people say "make me a builder!" "I dont want to mine!""How do i build in creative?" and we send them to the wiki.
  • Maybe address the "Make me a builder!"
  • VIP+ perks, we are no longer using factions. We are using clans, Not entirely sure who will be allowed to start them, gotta find that thread, not sure what was decided.
  • Name Colors, Arn't builders gray? normal white? green moderator, red administrator
  • On chest protection, In build and survival, just place a sign on your chest and its private for you. Same can be done with wooden doors.
  • On moving pvp spawn, its not apocalyptic YET. give it time and this will be a true statement once again.
  • On being a moderator, "Don't ask us, we'll ask you." is good advice.

Thanks a bunch Marine :)


  • VIP+ perks, we are no longer using factions. We are using clans, Not entirely sure who will be allowed to start them, gotta find that thread, not sure what was decided.

I don't understand this. Could you possibly explain it a bit more?



I can't seem to get that W to not be part of the "other Games" link... any ideas as to what I'm doing wrong?
