    Long time no Speak!

    Hey Guys, sorry that I haven't been around for a while. So here's some updates about myself: My Youtube channel has reached 5000 subscribers. I am a Radio Presenter and have a new show on Stafford FM 6-7 GMT every Wednesday all about gaming. I am in Year 11 doing my GCSEs and that's really about it. Hope to see you all around!

    What's Happening, JR

    Many times have I dissappeared in the last two years, A lot has happened in my life which has otherwise caused a decline at JR, The team has been demotivated, I haven't been around to be able to work on the love of my life (being this community) and I have actually half a life right now. JR - > Are We Staying? Big answer to that is yes, I haven't lost my vision, many of my team have been I'm still visioning a vast community of players, doing one thing and one thing best, Playing games. There has been rumours over social media that we have dead, that I am closing JR down, and seriously guys, I haven't. We will soon be coming back properly with a better way of working, more organization, more events, more prizes and best of all I'm working on a better, easier to use website. I have already started working on the better website, but it's not quite there yet. From January the 1st I will be promising to make an appearance at least an hour a day and from now I have been starting to work on where we are going and what is actually our plan of action. Why not quit? JR has been in my life since I created it when I was 13, I'm now 21. That's 8 years, nearly 9. We have had our ups, our downs. I currently work for a retail chain called, Harvey Norman and I feel that my work at Harvey Norman has increased the way I think, act and do. I want to get us working again, some people will look at this forum post and say I've seen this all before. But this is not the same. Will we change in anyway? Yes, but change is good, change is needed, staff changes are needed, game changes are needed and I can not wait to continue to work on something I started. Chris, Frosty and Caly I hope you know I need you more than ever right now, We will sort this. JR will sort this. More to come.... JR, It's here to stay.

    We definitely care. You know as well as us that the maps got corrupted and we always have said this straight out when it happens. If you had messaged us sooner on the map I would have been able to restore a backup. If we didn't care about our players I wouldn't personally be spending over 170 a month on JR ans putting so much time aside to do things at JR. I need a new car and if I wouldn't have spent the amount of money on JR I wouldn't be taking out a loan right now. Please don't be trying to put so much negativity due to an issue outside of our control (ark crashes and corrupts. This isn't our fault) we put so much work in keeping everyone happy. It upsets me when our players are annoyed, not playing or not chatting about an issue. If people talk and speak out I will sort things as I have on many occasions. I do this to make people smile, to create friendships in the world through games, to give people a safe space to talk and communicate with people. My community is everything to me, its my passion and I hope after reading this that you understand this.

    Returning to JR?

    It's summer best time to give out 3 months (In case you need it to make your life easier my in game name is: Harsol ) What brought you back to JR: 50% of the reason that I joined JR-Craft in the first place is the well built non-grief environment and being able to protect your builds no mater the size. The other 50% was being able to fly for free. Widening my building opportunities to the extremes. But the number one reason i have stayed and cam back over the years is the small community of people that were attracted to the same build an be creative aspect of the game. What would you like to see at JR: Larger community and active staff members. Are you happy with the current changes: yes, I do miss the fly a little but not having it adds the challenge that I need in this game. (if you make a post about fly i can comment further) Any other comments? Honestly I am supersized and happy that JR is still here and I am glad to see you all trying so hard to make it great again. Thank You, Harsol

    How did you find JR?

    A more unoriginal story here, but I remember going down PMC's servers back in the day and finding JR... The main appeal was fly mode being allowed in survival, and the comprehensive three world system: survival, hardcore, and creative (I think this happened a little later, but I loved the appeal of each world). I remember building a little house on a little island and being very happy, with a Moderator (maybe @Callum ♥, who I had the pleasure of meeting at Minecon) helping me claim the land (another great feature of JR). I certainly have some amazing memories from JR, being able to share the excitement with my friends from school (@Mecmax and various others), along with friends formed through JR (many of which were staff members). It was back when Mumble was used instead of Skype for staff conversations so I got to listen in and get the inside scoop on what was going on. Anyway, thank-you for all the good times, and here's to more to come .

    How did you find JR?

    For me It all started one snowy day in December (the 5th to be exact) I stumbled and fell upon planet minecraft and went through a few servers, none really caught my attention, all seemed too simple and like they had a pattern... Then I noticed a recently updated server posted under the following of play.jrcraft.net. Something seemed to call out to me and I decided to log in and was greeted with a large spawn and a very snow themed build with gorgeous fountains and I quickly registered from instructions given by a member/staff member who was there to meet me.... As soon as I registered I began to fall in love with the simple things that stood out, one of course being the ability to use flight from the get go... to me that was amazing and allowed me to expand on my already poor creations with even worse extensions with multiple levels. Flight only being one of the many things that I enjoyed about the server and within the first 16 hours I had ran to the bank just to cache in my last £20 to obtain the premium rank and to gain access to the vanish plugin allowing me to be a snowy ninja, to use the god mode ability and kick creeper butts like an absolute boss!! and many other things. The main reason behind my purchase was not to be a boss, a ninja or even above others in regards to what I could do, my intention was based mainly on now having the ability to be apart of the community and assist fellow players with small tasks suck as mining, digging out land, transporting stuff for them and bouncing around the map like it was nobody's business... being nosey pretty much All I wanted truly was to advance my options and grow in the community to create a place I wanted to play. Within the first week I befriended and made life long friends to this day with a lot of people including now fellow staff members such as Chris and surprisingly yes even Jamie himself along with a few staff members who are unfortunately no longer with the team due to personal complications, changes in life or other reasons ( of these members of course I will never forget each one that crafted my place here in JR each in their own way making it a learning curve and honor to have them in the community) Over the coming weeks my actions came to the attention of members of the staff team and I was able to strengthen friendships between each member and especially after speaking with Jamie on a personal level and creating a strong trusting friendship with him I was offered to become a member of the JR Staff Team and as you do I said yes with no hesitation, I now had a role, responsibility and most of all a challenge to myself to allow others to share the fun and excitement I had found only weeks before, to Experience the things I loved and continue to push my learning and respect for the hard work into my role l Before finding JR I must admit Minecraft for me was nothing but a pass time for when I was bored, single player was becoming drained and repetitive but since then it has quickly become an annoyingly addictive way to meet people and give as much back to the social community as much as I possibly could with any power I had During My Short time doing what I do for this for the community here at JR Craft I Have went from Citizen To Senior Staff / EU Head Which for me has been the best experience I have had I'am proud to hold the title in which i do - It was a true honor to be selected for an opportunity like this and in doing so I have sure learned skills to take into further life, parent hood and day to day challenges I could never thank every single member enough for what has been put into this community weather its public on our servers or behind closed doors, the end result for me in all honesty was life changing and will forever continue to grow no matter what Although i have heard that some players are not so happy of my quick promotions, most of the others say i deserved it and all I can say is it's happened and it is now my rank and role to represent to the best that I can and I will do all that I can to prove myself good enough to hold it I aim to be as much assistance as I can and over the years I have obtained the ability to handle many different types of people and situations in which this will be used to fulfill the tasks set. I am not talented in regards to how servers operate, nor do I have much knowledge of how to make things work or what needs to change, I look for the best in all situations and sometimes that's my weakness as well as my strength, I have been through my downs just as much as anyone else to the point I've considered leaving the team before when I truly beat myself up and I was never turned away, for that above all I hope to continue making JR a place it deserves to be and hopefully my input matters. Thank You for reading Kind regards Frosty

Well, guess who's back. Welcome back to the team Ruppi, It's a pleasure to have you back with new ideas. Ruppi is starting out as moderator again till he finds his feet

    How did you find JR?

    Well, I don't know how I can say I found JR, specifically because I created JR. But I created JR for a number of reasons. I was being bullied and wanted to "rebel" against the majority of **holes I wasn't doing well in school as nothing interested me in school I wanted to prove to the world I could do something that would help others I like making people smile and since I started JR we have smiled we have frowned and sometimes even cried. Relationships have been created from members meeting up from JR, which I think is amazing. JR since I started has changed over 100 times, each time getting better and better, JR is now about games but it used to be a free for all, I'm so glad that we all have JR to turn too when we need a place to get away and relax. I created JR because I wanted to help others, I hope I may have helped you some way in your life after you found JR.

    Please read before changing MineCraft IGN

    After the new update you are now able to change your MineCraft IGN! However please be careful when doing so as not all plugins are updated to work with the change of ign. Until such time when these plugins have been updated please read and follow this carefully: You may lose your inventory if you change your ign. To avoid this please put your items into a chest first. Any chests or doors you use will need to be unlocked with the /unlock command. If you do not do this you will not be able to use your chests or doors after updating username. Once you have updated your username you will need to lock your chests/doors again to stop others using them. This can be done with /lock or /cprivate . Initially it will appear that you have lost your rank (your name will appear grey). To fix this you will need to do the following on the website: Log in to your account. Click on your profile picture in the top right corner and select MySettings. Scroll to the bottom and enter your new username in the 'Minecraft Username' Field. This MUST be accurate. That should be about it. If there are any other issues please don't hesitate to mention them and I'll try to improve this for the future. If anything changes (a plugin updates to work with username changes) I'll update it on here too Kind Regards, Kyle

    A hard decision

    Ever since my friends invited me onto this server, I started playing on it daily, I started to learn the names of the members and staff, Learned the way that JR wants to run. I joined the server at the age of 13/14. Played on it to this very day. When I got to talking to staff often, I started wanting to help JR grown and be a better community. I would stay on all night while all the EU staff were sleeping, and take screen shots of people cursing, cheating, or griefing. (being a tattle tale) I tried everything I could to become apart of the staff. It was my dream goal to one day be wearing a red name tag in the Minecraft server under "Admin". I maybe tried too hard to become staff as I would try and beat the staff to the problem and try to fix it myself. Posted on forums to try and get activity up. I tried all I could, attended every meeting. The day came on my 16th birthday I could apply for helper. I was so happy, It took a few days for them to look over it but finally I was accepted as a Helper. I was the happiest guy alive. Then I continued to strive to work up the ranks and do my best and help the Owner, Admins, and Mods in anyway I could. When I was promoted to Grief Police at the time, was another amazing day for me, I ran around my house (literally) to get my excitement out of the way. Grief Police was later merged into Moderator, Which is where I stand. I have thought about this for many days. This might be the hardest thing I have ever had to do. There comes a point in our lives where we all must say goodbye to something, someone, or some place that we love. It's never easy. But today I must make one of those hard goodbyes, Today is the day I feel I must step down from management. There are a few reasons for this. First, my current life situation doesn't give me a whole lot of time to be active enough to help and support the server/community. Second, I joined this community for the Minecraft aspect, and as I feel the majority of the community is now past the Minecraft aspect. I feel there is not much for me to do here. Third, I don't really offer any help anymore. Everything JR as a whole needs help with from staff is either beyond my abilities or in games that I do not own or play. I will never forget this amazing time I have had here, nor will I ever leave the community. This will always be my home, staying up late talking to members and staff. Getting to know such amazing people. Everyone here has had a place in my heart since I got to know them. All the staff were so helpful and caring. I have never had bad times being here. I have always had people to rely on and count on to pick me up when I'm feeling down. I will always recommended this place to anyone as it is nothing but inspiration. So many amazing unique people. I wish I coulda done more for the server but I did what I was capable of doing. This my last post as staff at JR. I will always remember and love this place. I hope one day I will be able to bring my daughter to come play here. ❤️ People that I want to thank specifically: Serena, Djexecute, Noni, JuggaGirl, Chris, harsol, kickyabutt24, Barbermiss, Mrcoconut2012, AnioNovus, p4ck3ts3nd3r, Risen Havoc, UploadGFX, Daisuke, Lightning Potatoe People that really made an impact on me: Sophie and Frosty. I am sorry if I forget anyone, there were a lot of people so many years ago that were so fun to talk to and play with. Most importantly thank you Jamie for making this a thing and keeping it going even in rough times. I wish I coulda done more to support financially. But thank you for making this all possible I will not forget you.

    Screenshot of 5 dinos

    Hey guys! Please post screenshots of the 5 dinos that you want to keep here! 🤩
  14. 4 points

    Need help / ideas

    My advice for the JR supplydrop would be: Dino's: 5 Dinos currently owned by players to take with you (including current dino lvl) 5 Cryopods 1 saddle per chosen dinos Utility: 200 cooked meat 500 narcotics 250 stimulant 50 taming sedative 20 element Gear: 1-2 Metal Hatchet 1-2 Metal Pick 1-2 Metal sickle 1 Metal pike 1 shotgun 50 shotgun rounds 1 Crossbow 50 arrows 1 set of flak gear 1 backpack (if still used) 1 Canteen Buildings: 16 foundations 1 dino gate 1 dino gateway 16 Ceilings 56 Walls 1 vault 1 upgrade station + attachments (if still used) This should let ppl have a decent start without giving to much of a head start to newer players. Please review the list and let me know what you guys think. Maybe some stuff needs to be removed or added.

    This should be in a blog article but I said I'd pop it in the forum chat in case people want to discuss the situation. Recently a lot has happened causing my absence at JR. So what's happened: Car broke down on a sunday About a month and a bit my car broke down. I lost all power and my car was basically able to speed up to around at max 60km/hr. Took it to the garage, one problem was the fact a bolt went on the exhaust manifold meaning there was no pressure to the turbo. After they resolve that issue I got a call from the garage saying your turbo is also gone. So I had to wait another few days for the turbo to be replaced. I was working from home in the week and a half while my car was getting repaired. My car got rammed After I picked up the car (literally was driving for an hour) a driver, who was on the phone rammed in to me at a speed of 60 - 70km/hr. There was a car in front of me turning right. I had come to a halt, looked in my mirror and a guy who was on the phone. Rammed the rear of my car cause nearly 1700 euro damage. I was took away to A and E due to shock and whiplash. The guy who crashed in to me was arrested due to a supposed outstanding warrant for his arrest. (Weird he didn't run after he hit me). With this whole ordeal the gent didn't produce a licence or insurance documentation which mean the cops here are now after him in relation to this now too. Which also means it's a more drawn out process getting my money back from getting my car repaired. Luckily work is helping me sort the bill out. (If they didn't help I'd be in worse shape). I've been staying in limerick after this whole ordeal. I couldn't spend a month or so on my own at home (I was getting lonely as it was the week my car broke down) For the first week after the incident I was sleeping for the week as I couldn't muster the energy to do anything. How's me after this? I'm still suffering after effects of the whiplash. I'm having trouble sleeping, my neck, shoulders and back are in pain after it. It's been very hard to deal with the pain and I know for certain I never want to suffer this again. It's been causing me to be really tired and I can't stop falling asleep in the middle of trying to remotely work. What's happening now? I'm still waiting for my car from the garage which should be done this Wednesday. It's going to be weird as I haven't drove properly for over a month and a bit now. I'm trying to get my life back on track and my solicitor is currently dealing with all the paperwork. I'll be coming back to JR and starting to help develop our services further and we will be holding staff meetings again pretty soon when I get back to normality. For the people who play and use JR I hope you now understand what I have been going through. All the redtape I've had to go through has been tough and that is why, while I have been putting comments in every now and again I've been pretty absent from all JR related activities. I can't wait to come back and continue to work on my life project. If you have any questions please let me know here and I'll reply when I see them. Thanks to everyone who has wished me well and who have spoken to me on discord. I appreciate everyone's support

    Taming rate

    While the higher lvls sure take some time, nobody is forced to go for lvl300 right from the start. A lvl50-100 is able to farm the resources for sedatives without any problems. The pain starts with getting max lvls and this should still be some effort. I started with a lvl ~50 trike and made my way up to higher lvls. (lvl40 bronto was next for bigger weight and more berries^^). The only reason to up the taming rate would be passive dinos since it can really take some time... But on the other hand you can grab most dinos and put them into a taming pen so no other dinos disturb you. Get the kibble needed before you go for max lvl and simply invest some work. I can understand why people want higher rates but how many dinos do you tame passive? It's not like you have to tame new dinos every day. Investing 1-2 days (to prepare) to get a male+female and easily breed them (nanny+hatchery = no effort at all to breed) are fair in my opinion.

    Open up community to console users

    We have a JR Xbox Club and I'll be getting playstation organized soon enough. I don't want everything PC orientated so I'll be putting a link to our xbox club and other console groups soon. Unfortunatley there is no widget or API to show members in the club etc.. I do agree to open forums for the official console groups. Maybe if you want to open one for Xbox for now and a general section under a Console category in the forum? ***Moved to Accepted***

    Creative Poll

    I especially like the fact that it isn't just flat land. I would like to see some animals and villagers. The lots are a good size. Is it possible to add plot markers? I had some issues with sand and gravel blocks becoming invisible. I had to place a block at their location so I could see them to remove them. Overall, I like creative this way a lot more than flat land. Rob

    How did you find JR?

    My theory, @Flaw, is that you are a conscious but abstract being that Jamie created when he created JR, so it's normal that you don't have any early memories. You then expanded your reach to video games like Minecraft and eventually took on a real human form that fools you into thinking you've always existed.

    So hey guys, girls, ladies and gentleman of the JR Forums I am here today to tell you about a plan that I have re-birthed, an idea for my own personal expense in gaming and to reach out to others and share this involving as many awesome people I meet along the way and just trying to grow past my quiet gaming that I do. what I mean by this is I wish to grow forward towards streaming, YouTube videos etc, I am edging closer to starting this up with help from a friend who agreed to join me in this adventure and help behind the scenes with GFX, Intro's, Thumbnails etc and has offered to put more time into carrying me forward and keeping my head high on times where I may feel useless or that I lack things so the YouTube Channel is: https://www.youtube.com/user/FrostBlastGaming My Twitch Account where I will be streaming is: http://www.twitch.tv/frostblastgaming/profile My Instagram is: http://instagram.com/Rainbow_Snowman I want to be a little different and really interact with the viewers and subscribers that may be gained over the coming months to further expand my experience and learn about what my viewers enjoy to then grow on Soon the channel will with feature games such as GTA V (PS4), Shadow Of Mordor (PC), Elder scrolls online (PC), Watchdogs (PS) and I must mention that I am highly open to any suggestions to try for you guys and will happily put any money I have to purchase a higher demanded game I ask you and anyone else who views to leave comments and feedback so that I can move in the right direction for what suits the majority of viewers that I may gain (: Hate as we know the internet bring a lot of - will be ignored and blocked, I do not plan to share content just to be slated, Only your own time will be wasted I must ask you to bear with me as my internet is bad so until that is improved I can't promise scheduled uploads or streams but in time that will be possible Until then my fellow #FrozenSoldiers Keep calm and game on!

    New name

    Im not new here as you can tell. But I would like to inform everyone I changed my name awhile back while my old name was too weird for people to say. So I changed it to "Tormenting" for awhile but then I got into Rocket League on steam and there was a pro player named "Torment' and then people started thinking I was him so it got annoying so I changed my name again to "Ravek". and I think its about time I fully change everything to this name as ive had it for quite awhile now. SwitchShotJolt is no longer a thing and Ravek is the new man.

    We do care, however in previous instances the maps have become corrupted so ark has reset the map. Then as no one has informed us of the map being reset, we lose the backups of the map before if was reset so we are unable to restore the maps. The key to sorting these issues is communication and as I have burnt out from Ark I don't keep an eye if the servers have had their maps reset. We now have a system in place that allows us to keep backups for a longer time so if the map does get reset again in the future we should be able to revert to an old version.

    JRCash - It's Here

    I think we should keep it simple for now, and once we are at a stage where there are lots of members who are accustomed to JR Craft, we can then add a new rank. Right now, let's keep it simple aso everyone is on board with what's up.

    Updating to 1.9

    I hope you guys get more players! I remember Jrcraft years ago and I'll hop on every once in a while now that I know it's updated. I'd love to see where these new additions gets the server and if it starts up again. Who knows maybe I can get a few others to get on JR if I play more. Most likely that's what I'll do. Good luck with the update.

    JR found me... literally. Me and Jamie have been mates since the first day of secondary school, and in second year (around Novemberish) Jamie came up to me and told me he wanted to create a website and wanted my help, hence Jamie's Rebellion, now JR Network, was born. Jamie did the vast majority of the work at the time, due to me not having any coding experience nor internet because I live in the middle of a bog, but I was essentially "PR" or something of the like and worked on the website whenever I had access to a PC. A few years later (about 3ish), The Minecraft Beta came out and we created a server, which is where many of ye came along As ye know, I haven't been active in the last 4 years (give or take) mostly due to college commitments, but I'm gonna try to be more active (he says again). What most of ye might not know, JR is what got me into computing, and the reason I did a course in Games Development, so thanks Mister James Arthur Tees for that

    A single chat channel - JRCraft

    Hey guys, Recently, as @ and I and others have noticed, the multiple-channels on servers can get quite annoying. New players that log onto the hub aren't welcomed unless they join a server, which they don't do that often; It's hard to track down friends that are on the server except by jumping from world to world or by communicating from the outside. At the moment, with the small population we have, it seems to simply cause more trouble than it does cleaning up the chat. I don't know how easy of a fix this is, but it would be great to be able to change it. @Jamie

    Who would you vote for?

    There are a few things you've said that aren't factually true, I just want to point them out (not trying to argue about them, that'll come later : Ironically not true at all, there doesn't seem to be a difference in men and women overall when voting for Sanders or Clinton. (Sorry for the crappy source, it's the only one I could find quickly. I originally heard this in a news video). One of the most important problems with Trump that I see is that he isn't clear about his stance on many different issues. Very often he'll say contradicting statements, giving us no clear indication of what he will actually do if president. I find this to be the most frustrating. If you can get through the left-wing comedic cheap shots of these videos, I find them to overall be quite strong and true to facts: Video about Trump Video about Trump's plan for a Border Wall On the racist note, I would say that although he is not directly racist and many times people are just making too big of a deal over things he says, his campaign encourages racism, or at least does nothing to prevent it. You can see this from how white supremacists and the KKK support him. Also, all the videos of violence at his campaigns are of a single black person getting beat up by all his white supporters. This was honestly quite frightening to watch for me. On my opinion of who would be the best: Personally, I think Donald Trump has some of the vaguest plans as president. As highlighted in parts of those two videos, his plans aren't vague and are mostly inaccurate (like the cost); I get the feeling he says a lot to please his base while not having truly thought through his plans. I think Clinton is similar in terms of pleasing her fanbase, and having her versus Trump in the general election will be quite catastrophic for the people of the USA. The two candidates highlight the misunderstanding and extremism in the country on both sides, and how people refuse to collaborate and understand their opponents. I have no clue about Cruz. I would prefer to not have him as president. I think Sanders is the most respectable candidate. He never makes cheap shots or insults towards other candidates, and is extremely honourable. Many times the media beg him to diss Clinton, but he righteously says that there is no point, and that it would only hurt relations for the future. He is a strong collaborator and believes in compromise and discussion rather than trying to force something that half the population wants and the other half doesn't. He also has detailed plans (all layed out for the public to read) about his healthcare reform, tax reform, etc. I think this is really great. I also strongly believe in socialism (as a European, I see it work well here), and I'll go through my "Fundamental Theorem of Socialism" that I came up with that noone has every counter-argued (and that I'm open to discussion for!) on my "Amazing Life of Mecmax" blog. However, just like Trump's fanbase, I think many of Bernie's fans blind themselves in his beliefs and don't collaborate and compromise. It's a shame how the American population has become so extreme, and this is no doubt at least in part due to the sensationalist media and social networks, where people can watch whatever they already agree with. Center-parties don't even exist in the US, it's insane!! I used to be quite a strong liberal, but after noticing that the shows (late night type shows) I watched simply repeat the same jargon over and over, I unsubscribed to a lot of them. I also had some deep discussions with right wing (under European standards, it's more Center in the US) people, who pointed out many problems caused by left-wing beliefs that I completely agree with, like the non-working pay in Europe and how it doesn't encourage people to work. However, as with everything in the world, I think collaboration between the Right, Left and Center will bring the best solutions, as long as you stay true to facts. Also the reason why why the US Congress is such s***.

    BUILD is back! Events? Hell yeah!

    Hello fellow JRcraft members! I would like to announce that BUILD clan is back in action. Me, xJEDDYx and sir ikbeneenautist have been actively building the BuildTown. We are trying to finish the town so we can hold another event in the future. If anyone wants to join the Clan, feel free to ask xJEDDYx or ikbeneenautist. We are open to whoever wants to join and we will have fun projects to build. If the members think you have the capability to build like a boss, we will add you to the current event islands where you can build your own building and use it for the next events that will be held. Thank you for those players who participated in the New Year's Event: Find the Clues. The journey has ended with the capture of the hotel murderer, Frosty The Snowman. But since it is still winter, he may have something else up his wooden stick sleeve. The Next event will probably be held in Valentines Day, February 12. Stay tuned for the next chapter of the adventure. Thank you for your time & see you all in JRcraft, xJEDDYx P.S. - The BuildTown is still under construction, so we do not have a current [ /clan home ] Thanks to a specific badass staff, BuildTown can be reach through the stargate portal in /spawn or simply just do: /warp BuildTown

    Hello everyone, It's been a while since I made a blogpost. In order to not sound as hostile, I will avoid from quoting (aside from one at the end and statements I made myself) and will not name anybody in this story here. For the past week or so I have been ranting to my fellow staff members about a problem I've had with another server. I used to play on it constantly two years ago, but last year, I was banned from it for apparently having a "hacked client," emphasis on apparently. I had and still have absolutely no recollection of having one at all. Therefore, I made an appeal. Have caution, though. This is much harder than it sounds. Before I made my ban appeal, I had to find out the format they required for writing one. I found this, and it was quite clear, but on the same page, they went over the reasons you could be banned for and how to appeal them. It makes all the banned people, whether or not they were rightfully banned, feel like monsters and sin committers to the server. THe first two lines of the instructions to appeal begin by "sympathizing" by saying that being banned can be frustrating, especially if you disagree with it. Yeah I felt great when I read this. All I had to do was appeal, I thought. Ha, no way. Below that line I found possible reasons for banishment. Under hacked client, which is what I got stuck with, I heard that it was the worst ban you could get. The author of this post confirmed that they have a custom-made hacking detection plugin that is only set to bypass REI's minimap and other conventional mods that do not create an unfair advantage. Seems as though it is so flawless that any other mod just trips up the system and bans you for hacking. This is just ridiculous. Are they saying that the anti-hack program has never tripped up? NoCheat trips up all the time because of server lag and performance errors. After assuring everybody that there is no way that the hacking program could have made a mistake, the members of the server have the right to declare any appeals regarding having a hacked client unable to be appealed. This is where I became frustrated with server. It definitely wasn't the last time, either. Under that they claimed that "admin bans," which was my type of ban because an admin banned me, are always 100% justified and, and the admins are always right. Therefore, those bans will always stay intact because they are so very worshipped and trusted by the entire staff. Remember this statement for the remainder of my post. It is the entire reason why I am making this in the first place. I still made the appeal, though. I figure I should try, and the staff seemed to have the common sense that they should try to reply to everyone that tries to get unbanned. So, I made this. Keep in mind this was attempt one: I can't quote the reply, but it basically said "I personally trust the admin who banned you, and that video shows no relevance whatsoever. Sorry, your account will not be unbanned." The topic was then locked, so I couldn't have made any reply. Not even a "thank you for answering my ban appeal." The fact that they locked the topic (which I believe they do for every appeal when it is replied to) shows that they probably don't really have any proof of anything here, and that they don't want to risk being proven wrong or argued against by the victim. That's my theory. It didn't bother me as much until my friend asked me to play on the server again. After seeing that I was still banned, I felt like for the sake of both of our enjoyment (of playing together on the server), I should try again. After refreshing my mind and being discouraged by the same page of directions (mind you this was a year later, in fact last week), I made a more sensible appeal that talks about assuming that I could have done something wrong. This appeal wasn't directly replied to, because two days later it was recommended that I make one more story side. So, I did just that and made it clear for them to acknowledge this ^^^ one along with it. I really can't tell if they did. Anyway, I made this one as well to add on. It took the staff one week to reply to my ban appeal, and this is all it said: "You were not banned by our nocheat system. You were banned, by one of our most experienced and trusted admins, and I'm sorry, but the ban will not be revoked. Appeal denied." As you can see, they almost literally copy/pasted their last response and left it at that. I practically wrote two essays and I get a sentence back. I almost have no doubt in saying they quickly skimmed both of them, or at least the first one. It's just outrageous. They have shown me no proof and I feel like they expect me to give valid proof. Well for one if I didn't do anything then I can't prove I wasn't doing anything, and how in the world am I supposed to prove that I don't have a hacked client? The moral of this story goes to JR directly. We need to make sure we take EVERY ban appeal and EVERY question into consideration and simply, just put ourselves in the victim's shoes. Whether they are innocent or griefed 10000 blocks, think about what they are trying to do. Think about the effort they put in to get back on this server and apply it to our responses to them. Whether we deny appeals or not, we should return the favor, if they made an effort, and reply in a civilized manner giving reasons for our actions besides trust. Maybe ask some follow up questions. We should not solely use personal trust as a justification for banning anybody. Thanks to @troll or @MineDr, this problem has been indirectly solved (thanks man!), so I can play on this server again, but I wish things could have been easier.
