The server's community is growing and growing, and with some of the usually reliable members busy with their personal lives, I'm looking to add a few people to the staff of the server. Ideally, I'd like to get one new Helper and one new Server Op, and that might be you!
The tasks of a helper include the following:
- Greeting the new players and answering any questions they might have
- Checking on those players to make sure they understand and follow the rules
- Getting players unstuck due to server bugs (it happens!)
- As a last resort, kicking and/or banning troublesome players
Being an op involves the above plus the following:
- Fix broken permissions
- Protect the player's creations as requested
- Investigate ongoing issues
- Promote players to the trusted status
Quite obviously, only registered and active players will be considered. If you're interested and want to apply to a position (or both!), please send me (Dr. Cossack) a private message through the forums.
Thank you for considering this!
I'd like to remind all players that Saturday nights are Events Nights!
From approximately 9pm to midnight, Eastern time, you're welcome to join us for various multiplayer activities such as PvP, pig racing, spleef and more! Many single-player attractions are also available, including roller coasters, a parkour arena and mazes.
To give you a chance to reach those special locations quickly, you'll find some TARDIS and time gates spread around the world. Those serve as teleportation points and bring you to a central hub. From there, you can reach another destination quickly, but they are only enabled during Events Nights. Be on the lookout for these!
I'm happy to announce that we're now running Minecraft v1.5! Update your client, then join us to discover the new features!
To all quartz hunters: I've run a special world modification program that added quartz ore to the current Nether. This means that you do not need to go to unexplored areas to find quartz!
Hankapotamus, a player on the server, has decided to take the initiative to launch a pixel art contest with an actual prize! In his own words:
For those looking for more specific directions, start from Grand Central Station. Take the train line toward Victoria, and continue past the town. At the rail junction that follows, take the line to your left (heading North). Hankapotamus' location is after the mountain pass! Good luck to those who decide to enter!
I have a very important poll to submit to all players on the server. Something that will influence how things go from now on. One that will change the face of the world forever.
Survey: DC or Marvel?
MaximumRose thanks you in advance for taking the time to answer!
If you haven't heard yet, what happened on the 1st of April was nothing more than an April's Fools Day gag. :) All the destruction and weirdness you might have seen on that day is gone, and we're back on track!
For a full recap of what happened, please see this topic in the forums!
