    It's time. My goodbye

    Yeah, shocker and if you clicked readmore I'm guessing your wanting to know more. So why am I leaving? JR has been great yes, but in another aspect view It has been the worst time of my life. Since I started JR in school, when I was 13 I worked on JR constantly till now. It ruined my education, a good relationship with my parents and it's getting in the way of something more meaningful to me. I'm tired, I'm constantly upset and I have had no time because what ever I do, JR was always there needing my assistance. I have been sucked in to the deep end and it's been so hard to get out of the internet is great, but when you work on it for most of your teenage life after your teenage life is over you finally realize that damn, I have missed so damn much. What's going to happen to JR? Even though I started JR, I'm not shutting it down, all JR related services will be left open and they will be handled by the staff team that I have built. We have already talked in the staff meeting and yes while the staff did get slightly shocked, and possibly teary I believe that they will come out of my shadow and show JR what a staff team really is. A couple of heart felt mentions: Kevin: You mate have helped make JR what it is today, JR was originally going to be about everything while you gave me the idea to build something different a better gaming and technology community. I believe with all the goals, plans and ideas we had together. This was the main one and we did it dude. I'd like to say sorry to you as well because in time JR got in the way of our friendship and it got in the way of your life, especially when I came to yours for a little fun at times, it turned termoil and hell broke loose on JR Ruppi & Peter: I really didn't know who to choose first but since you were promoted to moderator, admin and founder at the same time I believe it's gotta be done this way. JR was made yours as much as I made it mine, you helped me grow, expand and get this community to flourish. It's been a blast and I'm sorry we really haven't socialized since we met. We have never really had one serious conversation about our lives and all it's been is stuff with JR. Thank you for sticking with me for so long, you made things really happen. Leslee & Robert: Leslee You of all people have kept me sane, been a mother to me per say and kept me from the verge of insanity, you helped me beat my depression, you helped me fund what JR is today. Without you of all people I would not have been able to keep running JR for this long. I know your going to try to talk me out of this, but please respect that I need to get my life back. Thank you for helping me in keeping what little of my life I have left. I hope you will be able to understand even though I know you most of all will be the mos upset why I have to do this. Robert: you wanted a friendly server to play on, because you felt it was too hard to run one, I'm glad I was there to provide that for you and your family, thanks for been a hardworking admin when your job allowed. Calystos: You mate have been brilliant, while I didn't want to let you down and leave I have to mate. Thank you for been there when I first started, for helping us evolve with all our gaming servers and for keeping us online when I needed someone way past my expertise, I just hope you can help JR still and I hope you enjoy it Joe, Ryan, Joesph, Tim and Evonne It wouldn't be fair if I singled you guys out, you all worked insanely hard for me, you made me proud to say that you worked on my admin team. Damian Scheck: No I didn't forget you mate, You helped create JR when we started too, even though you had college and not enough time eventually for JR, it's worth noting I'm glad I helped you learn english as I remember you came to JR to learn and I know your pretty decent at talking english now Callum & Abby: JR always was my dream to bring people together, but I never thought that in a million years I could start a relationship from two seperate people in two different countries. It's amazing to me that I brought you two together, I hope that for me, you won't have any issues in your relationship and thanks to both of you for working on JR so hard. Moderators & Helpers: To date you guys have had one of the most important and influential roles on JR, you have moderated, kept cool heads and while yes at times we all had our disagreements. Thank you for helping me out at JR. MCBlock.IT & Planet Minecraft Team: While JR has been a part of my life, you guys also came in to the field too tied with JR, I'm sorry to say that I'm also taking leave of my responsibilities at the two sites and thank you guys for giving me a chance to contribute to the projects. Guys, don't ever blame yourselves for me leaving, this was not sparked off from anyone but me. It's hard to stop something like this but it's time I took my leave and that I have the time to get my entire life back on track For the people who said JR died it hasn't its more alive than ever, for the people who said it will die, it won't it'll keep running I'm sure. Will I return ever? I can't say, simple It's too hard to guess but in my view in passing yes but as in getting back on the team, no. I'm sorry but it was going to come to this sometime, My life or JR. For all the members that joined JR, payed donations, kept JR fun thank you. I appreciate it and I hope that you too will understand why.

    Helpers (The guys to talk to first): - Guiding you around JRNetwork and JRCraft / JRTekkit - Kicking users that are causing issues on JRCraft / JRTekkit - Tutorials on small things and information Moderators (The guys to talk to second): - Website reports are dealt with by these users - Problematic users causing spam, distress, annoyance around JR - Fixing grief reports around JRCraft and JRTekkit (If you have a report don't ask a member of staff just do ./report (little information on report) - Cleaning up bits of land on JRCraft, JRTekkit that look a mess. - Advanced help, worldguard moderation - Banning users breaking the rules - Events setting up Admins and Founders (The big guys that you should talk to lastly) - Website issues, maintenance - Decisions on perma bans and unbans - Staff internal moderation (Admins control helpers and moderators) - Issues that can not be resolved by talking to Moderators - Server reboots (If necessary and are given authentication by Jamie) - News posts - Decision making on events that hand out prizes - Literally every other question Me, Jamie, rebel24, The Owner / Boss (The person you only talk to in a REAL emergency) I'm not going to bother making a list with this, I have so many responsibilities its unbelievable. Right now on my task list that my staff members use to notify me of things that need getting done is huge. And why have I not been able to sort out these things on my task list? Because constantly I'm harassed by users on skype that think just because they have my skype can contact me a hundred times a day asking for this and that, I'm also constantly asked in JRCraft and JRTekkit to handle little things and also via email. Please remember I'm one guy. We have staff members for a reason. From now on if users try to contact me via personal information that I have given them I will send them this one link and then if they carry on it'll be an instant block from my contact list. Look I really don't want to be mean but I don't have time anymore to be helping everyone with everything. I need to have more of a life than JR. Remember this phrase: If you think it's an easy fix contact a helper first, it probably is Thanks for understanding!

    You must know this information!

    Okay! Let's get one thing straight right here, right now! I was demoted to moderator, yes. This is true. Not sure how, but I wasn't helpful to others, which I guess is half true, but, seems a bit... sketchy. Before I left for Holland a while ago, I was always willing to help and be nice. But after my (Awful) vacation, I didn't feel the same. I didn't want to help, didn't want to build, didn't even want to play Minecraft. So, blame my parents for that part! Forcing me to go somewhere I didn't want to! >_> Anyway, I'm not going to be one of those people who say: 'Well, I won't have enough time for JRCraft, I find this unfair, I'm going to be annoying' etc etc etc. So, what will Iggy do? Well, let me put it this way: Look, I'm a staff member, that means I solve problems. Not practical problems like 'how to craft wood', because that would fall under the problems of the Minecraft wiki. I solve serious problems. For instance, how do I stop some big mean hacking griefer from destroying every house in the world? The answer, is a ban hammer. And if that don't work, use MORE ban hammer. Like, this big ol' hammer built by me, used by me, and you best hope, not used on you. Anyway, I hope no one thinks lesser of me because my name isn't red and begins with {A}, but nevertheless, it happened. Deal with it. However, I can get my position back IF I'm more helpful, which I don't find I can do because, well, I (personal opinion here) think that I'm at least useful. So, letting you know here, and everything. By the way, you should have seen my face when the little message came up in my inbox called 'Demotion'. It was kind of funny.

    I am Leslee. I was born on a cold winter (first day of winter) afternoon in the mid west a little over 50 years ago. I have 2 brothers, the oldest Robert aka rstoy (who got me addicted to minecraft) and the youngest Sean (can't get him to play Minecraft) A cat named Kassy who is a indoor/outdoor pain, that loves me on her terms...lol I never married, but was close 2 times and I guess lost interest somewhere. I have dated a few guys and now current situations keep me from doing so. (life goes on) My father was in the military all of my childhood so we moved a lot. He retired in 1974 and we moved to another state for the last time. He passed away at the very young age of 46 in 1982. Rob was already married and had one child (Christian2gothic) when Dad passed. So that left Mom, Sean & I to run the house hold ( have always been bossy why stop now...lol) Mom worked nights as an LPN after Dad died.. till she retired after 17 yrs of nursing. So I was left to take care of Sean when she was not home (lol while we slept) Time went on & I moved in & out of the house a few times until I noticed Mom's health starting to fail. At this point we all 3 bought a house together. Good thing too..because it wasn't long before Mom needed help. The kind of help a son doesn't like to do for moms. Mom suffered 2 major strokes an 4 mini strokes as well as many seizures in the past 3 years. She is now basically a paraplegic with the use of her right hand. This past year has been very trying but without the support and love of friends and mostly family, I think they would have put me away in the loony bin. I own my own Barber Shop ..(yeah hence the name barbermiss ) I have had it for 23 years now of my 27 yrs of barbering. Some days it's a pain and others it's relief. After a long day of cutting hair I come home and check on Mom to see what she didn't do for her sitter...some days she is very stubborn. (must be where I get it..lol) Then I setting in to see what emails I have ...and on to the fun stuff ...who did what to whom and broke what or poured lava on what ,....or said something about someone else ....as I write this I realize that minecraft is my family just spread all over the world....Just with any other family you have to break up squabbles and disagreements. In the end you tell them how much you care about them and go to bed. Love you all : )

    Clan Invites Toggle

    As the title says, this suggestion is rather straight forward: I suggest a /tptoggle for clan invites. While clan invites are fun to some people, others like me do not like Clans (or Factions or whatever) and get very angry when we see constant invites from people that we've told several times to stop inviting us. I can't speak how much work this would require, but it would make playing a bit more enjoyable for people who don't want to see invites, such as people like me and others already in clans. I can't think of any other details or anything for this... it seems pretty straight forward to me. I'd be happy to clarify whatever questions you all can come up with however, and I'm interested to hear your thoughts on this. I'll make a poll for this if enough people show an opinion one way or the other.

    Swearing On JRCraft

    Okay. This is my point of view on swearing etc, and may not reflect how other people look at this! TL:DR Keep the harsh language "normal" level, and don't begin saying bad stuff for no reason. I would say that swearing should be allowed on the server, to a certain point that is. if someone falls off a ledge and suddenly goes "Oh F*ck!", dies to a monster and begins saying "You damn bitchy zombie!" then i won't mind it at all. Why? Because i would do that myself, or atleast think it. On the other hand, if someone just begins swearing for no reason at all, and shouts crap out to players or any other real/fictional person, then i would say it is not okay!

    October 11th, 2012 To All: This is an extremely bittersweet goodbye. But at the same time, it isn't. Before I go anymore in-depth here, I would like to make this point crystal clear: JR is the friendliest, most helpful, most amazing whole-rounded gaming community I have ever had the honor of not only being able to call myself a member of, but also being able to say I have helped in whatever way(s) I could on a daily basis. And that would realistically be the bitter part of the bittersweet. I am drafting this message for the first time at approximately 5:40am, EST on September 26th, 2012. I am literally loosing sleep over this issue I am facing, and while the issue is not JR or any part thereof (including extensions such as (but not limited to) NLTekkit) it is unfortunately a consequence to a resolution I've come to recently dealing with my personal life. This semester (between this prior August and this coming December), I am in my third semester attending the University of Kentucky. Originally, I came here with the intention of learning communications and networking. Basically how any two electronic devices talk to each other in big perspectives, like making computers as a whole talk to each other or making communications work on a global scale, an example being Amateur Radio (which I hold a valid FCC license for, commonly dubbed 'Ham Radio'). But I digress, that is more than enough of a back story for this simple yet complex issue. The issue is rather simple: UK is not by any means a cheap school. In fact it is a very expensive school. And I'm not exactly learning things that I consider worth my money (that I don't have). My issue here is that I'm going to be in so much debt by the time I manage to get the piece of paper known as a 'college degree' that I doubt it will be worth it, as I would be working off the debt for the rest of my life... O_O Because of this, I am not returning to UK next semester. After three semesters' worth of debt, I still have a chance, however small, to dig myself out. So why does this affect my membership at JR? Well that's rather simple. What I need: A job, an income, training equivalent to a 'college degree' (actually exceeding it), prior job history, etc. Basically things that will make me very valuable to employers. And with the state the US economy is currently in, it will not be getting any better anytime soon. Which means I need security in all the things in that list above all else. There are also things I clearly lack. Discipline (in the formal sense), fitness (I've gotten lazy since coming to college... having to study in basically all my free time (and still not do very well in classes) = sitting for 98% of my day + still needing to eat = Tim got fatter than he was ), etc. There is a clear place where I would excel and receive everything (and more) I need, as well as give me the things I recognize myself as lacking as of late: the military. Any branch of any military on the face of this planet is known for this! And in this environment, it seems like the best thing I could possibly do for myself (especially considering that while I am in the service (active duty and/or reserve) my loans will be on standby, not inuring any interest, which would be tremendously helpful for my situation). The issue with this is that (supposing all goes well and I am accepted into the Air Force, which is the branch I'm looking into going into), I will be shipped off to BMT, or Basic Military Training. For about 8 weeks. Then comes 'Tech school', which is essentially college stripped down off all the bull, cost, and liberal arts classes that don't actually contribute to what you are learning. Tech school can last anywhere from another two months to two years, but again, I would be considered active duty during this time, so I would have all the benefits as such. Because of this, I do not feel as though I will have time for JR where other people clearly do and could easily fill my shoes. I have come to love JR so much that because of this, I am asking for a demotion from Jamie (he will have received this letter earlier than it will be released to the community as a whole) – I want to see someone who has the time to devote to JR in my place. Why am I not just posting about this in the Home & Away Topic and just asking for a temporary demotion? Well to be honest, the military will change me. I doubt I will have any more time for JR when I am in Tech School or graduated thereof than I do at this moment. Because of this, I think it is unfair of me to hold a position where I can help so many, yet never actually have time to do so. I do hope to come back to JR one day, as I did less than a year ago when I first came across the community in this same building, however I know the military will change me, and as such, I cannot whole-heatedly promise that I will be able to, or even that I will want to then. And this saddens me. But knowing that I was a part of the Staff Team that makes JR as epic and redundantly awesome as it is today makes me literally weep tears – at the very least I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for the most awesome time I've had in a long time; I will miss you all very dearly. That being said, I won't be completely disappearing from the community so long as I can muster it – I've already paid up through the semester (December), so I still have to work to get the best grades I can (LOL), and more importantly get back into physical shape. I will still almost definitely be trolling the forums and keeping up with the community, but at some point or another I will unfortunately disappear from the Internet for a few months while I attend BMT in Texas. And even then, as I've said, that is not a guarantee as of yet. It is just a dream. But I don't foresee any reason I will have difficulties with this. I do have to tell my parents my decision though, and I'm honestly not sure which scares the crap out of me more... telling them or writing this letter to you all... :'( Lastly, I would like to thank all the current and previous members of the Staff Team – you all are what makes the community so epically awesome so that thousands of people can enjoy playing together in an environment that is fun but organized – I would very much like to name individual people and thank them personally for the ride as it has been, however I refuse to do so because it is almost inevitable that I will accidentally leave someone out, and I would absolutely hate to do that. If there is anything else I feel I need to say, rest assured that I will do so. But attempting to convince me otherwise of this decision should not be attempted – I have been considering this since just about the time I was made an Admin. This is not something I have taken lightly, and I cry each time I think of how I am telling Jamie and his Staff this so soon after that promotion, however I do so with only good intentions for both myself and JR's continuation – after all an Admin that actually has time for being helpful on a large scale and is not planning on taking an extended leave soon is much more worth having than someone who just seemed to disappear one day because he realistically has no time for being helpful anymore. And for that, I am sorry. So deeply sorry. But there is no point in pretending anymore – this will just be better for everyone. And as I've already said, I hope to log back in one day in the not-so-distant future and see the exact same community that I left. And I believe that if I every manage to do so, I will find that everything that made me love JR in the first place is still here, having withstood everything that anyone could ever throw at them. I love you all. <3 And I am so sorry. :'(

    So yeah, we have added zombie survival at JRCraft. To play just go to /warp zombies - No building in the world - Player vs Zombies only - PVP is off - Chests respawn the same / random items every 30 minutes - There are many chests scattered around the world - There are towns to hide in and more! Just run! Run while you can! Also other updates: - Removed Scavenger and replaced it with /backpack - Gold members can use /backpack upgrade - Updated Disguisecraft - Installed fireworks mod - Updated bukkit - Updated /recipe - Limited zombies to 1000 in the zombie map due to huge lag

    Wow, has it been a while that I've put this off now. No particular reason, I just keep procrastinating on this topic. Now seems like a good time to put it into physical context though. This is kind of to get to things off of my chest. [1] What has recently been happening with staff. [2] Everyone that has told me I should apply for a Helper position. I'm going to start with the first one there, as I think my response to that matter can be put simply: It doesn't affect me, so I don't care what happened. As always, I'm sad to see any staff member be removed, for whatever reason(s), and for whatever length of time. But the fact of the matter is that I'm not involved in it in any way, shape, or form. Moreover, I am not a staff member. Will it affect my ability to play on the server? No, and therefore, I couldn't care less about whatever happened, and/or what the effect of it will be. That ties nicely into what I promised I would write about in my next blog: why I would turn down Helper should it be offered to me. Before I found JR, I was so disgusted with the servers out there that I had my own. Unlike someone who believed that he could run a huge, 100 person server, I kept it realistic. I had it strictly for family and close personal friends. I actually had it up until the point where I registered for JR. At that point, I told everyone that had access to it why I shut it down, and I turned it off. There isn't even anything wrong with it; I could power up the machine and it would automatically start back up (I had it on a small, but dedicated box). A lot of these people that used to have access to my server still won't talk to me. I had my server for one reason: I wanted to be able to play with people that I trusted, and I wanted to be able to fly around while I built. As I said I was always disgusted with other servers, I also have never before in my life donated to a server in any way, for a donator rank or just because I thought the server deserved it. The closest I've ever come to actually giving money for Minecraft-related things (besides actually buying Minecraft) was giving $10 to rodox for his telethon when his house burned down (or whatever it was). In return I got a nice door added to the Painterly Pack in my name (modeled like a window, so that it looks more modern). But I digress, that's a bit off topic. I guess my point here is that I love JR. I love it for multiple reasons, and while I'll try to list all of them here, I guarantee I'll think of a few more in a few hours. I never have to question if all the work I've done will be ruined. (Kudos to Jamie on that - I've never before seen a server give basic WorldEdit perms to it's standard members!) I always know that I'm not going to jump on at a wrong time and hear language, etc. that I just don't want to hear. I can almost always say that I would consider at least one person who is online a friend. The JR Forums are some of the most highly organized and efficient that I've ever seen, so staying on the Forums for hours at a time is just a pleasure! There is always something to do, if I should get tired of building whatever it is I'm building at the moment. With two (currently) MobArenas, CTF, TDM, Thunderstorm, Spleef, PvP, a true anything goes hardcore, HungerGames, Skyblock, and Iggy's infamous 'The Hunt', there is always something to do! The rules aren't stupid like some other ones I've seen. As far as I'm concerned, JR doesn't even need them - they are all things that I would personally consider common sense. Even though the server itself is in (unless I'm mistaken) France, I have never had a ping to the server more than 350ms, and I usually don't have anything less than 400ms to servers that are in America! (Excluding my old one of course, since I was on a LAN with the server.) And as I've said, I'm sure I could think of even more if I let myself ramble on about this! The point is, I've finally found a place where I just enjoy being a member of the community. I don't even feel this welcome on my college campus, which I'm paying a lot more money to be at (Screw them all)! Its really for this reason that I won't apply for Helper, and I would turn it down if I was given it without applying. I won't say who has told me that they think I would be a good choice for Helper, but I would like them to know (if they are reading this) that I greatly appreciate them telling me that they believe that. There is, in my mind, a difference between being helpful, and being a helper. Right now, I'm just loving being a member of a community where I feel like I belong. For this reason, I love being helpful - but that doesn't qualify me for being a Helper. I feel I need to be with JR for at least a little bit longer in order to have the loyalty required to be on the staff team. Even though Helpers are technically staff-in-training, they are in my mind still on the staff team. I think my thoughts and this blog can best be summed up by a quote from someone who obviously has the same thinking as me. I don't think I even need to say who uses this in their signature. I think most people will know who it is I'm referring to.
