    JR - Revamp

    I'm excited for the changes you have planned. I hope you can revitalize this once amazing community to its previous awesomeness(Yeh...that's a word now).

    What has happened...

    I understand this, as almost all servers experience this, but this only accounts for the loss of old players. I was looking for reasons behind the lack of new players. If it's anything that I could potentially help with, I would be glad too. Any and all information on this would be lovely.

    What has happened...

    I realize that it has been a while since I last played, but seriously; What has happened to JR? I played for about 3-4 hours today and not once was there more than 6 people. I was on the RPG server and there wasn't more than 5 people there the entire time. At one point, for about and hour or so, there was only me and an AFK Frosty. Is the server, simply, more active at different time (I played from 6ish to 9ish pm EST)? Is the server simply just on a decline? If anyone has any insight please let me know below because, frankly, I am concerned. This server has always been one that I enjoy playing on and I would be fairly sad if this server went down the drain, like oh so many others do. Again please let me know if you know anything about this lack of players. Thanks, -Kav (IGN-kav0503)
  4. No apology of any kind is required. In my eyes, and I'm sure many others, Real Life over Minecraft. And anyone that says otherwise won't be saying that when it comes to be there time to make the choice.
  5. First and foremost, I want to start by saying I do not intend to insult/offend any JR staff or JR member in this post. Moving on, I would like to voice a few concerns I have and ask a few questions that a staff, or anyone that has a reliable answer, could answer. 1. Vanilla Survival Problems I do not know the reasons behind this but the Vanilla Survival seems like it's not necessarily JR quality. What I mean is it feels like the server was kind of rushed in a way. Permissions are a little wacky and plugins are not optimal for new players. As to avoid being general I am specifically talking about Premium and Citizen permissions. Citizens have NO tping permissions meaning that unless you are staff you can't do /tptoggle (/tog). Because of this premiums have a free roam for whomever they want to teleport to. Premiums don't have permission to do /spawn. Obviously there is an easy temporary solution such as having someone teleport you to spawn and then setting a home. As for the plugins what I'm talking about mainly is world guard. I know the commands for most servers (cause they don't really vary) but for this server they seem to have changed a bit. I know that it's /region claim <region name> <owner name> but even then I don't have permission to remove the region that I JUST created. Also the /warp command for [P] is not allowed either. As far as I know none of these things have changed. I know that these things seem trivial and probably even childish to me when these problems are compiled like this it's almost disappointing to see it come from JR. Obviously people are busy and have lives outside of Minecraft, I do too, all I'm saying is if it wasn't ready and FULLY tested then maybe the server shouldn't have been released as early as it was. 2. A few "house-keeping" questions My 2 year mark is coming up here on JR, but unfortunately I took quite a long break after being on here a few months. Since then staff, format of the website, and servers have all changed quite a bit. After being gone for so long I don't really know where to post something like this on the forums. Is this an appropriate place or is there a specific catagory for these types of posts. Also has the amount of staff gone down? I remember when JR had like 60 spots on it's vanilla flying server (using zombe to fly back then) and it was a struggle just to get on in the evening. Now I have to server hop to find help from staff that are usually AFK. Not to offend anyone but I've been sitting on a region issue that I have for like 4 days w/o a single admin on or one that's available to help. In case you're wondering about the (revised) I posted this on my blog and didn't get an answer. I thought it was misplaced so I'm going to try to post it here. Finishing up, I would like to reiterate that I do not intend to offend or insult anyone on JR including both staff and members. If you can offer some help/or just want to comment on whatever I said feel free to do so below. Thanks, -Kav

    Well...This Again

    I do not mean for this to sound "ranty" I simply wanted to restate something that I said a while ago. But to reply to you, I was not yelled at for doing another staff's job I simply wanted to know who built something, then my friend wanted to know how I did it so I told him the command (IN A PRIVATE MESSAGE) and was promptly scolded not to do that ever again. Shortly after agreeing not to, and asking a question about why it wasn't blocked, I recieved a verbal warning. I'm not saying that this is a HUGE deal I was just simply speaking my mind on how that verbal warning shouldn't even happen.

    Well...This Again

    As I'm sure almost none of you are aware there is a plugin on JR that is used by the staff to see who placed/destroyed blocks. Similar to a popular plugin called BigBrother, this plugin (I will not name it as I'm sure I will be scolded for telling people about it) has a command that allows you to use the "tool" that allows you to see who placed/destroyed blocks. Now personally I don't see a problem in letting regular players use the command but if it is a problem then it should be treated like one. There really is not respectful way to say this, but frankly it has to be said; If the staff of JR really don't want people to use this command than it should be blocked in Perms. Granted this is a response to a verbal warning on myself from a staff member that will remain anonymous I feel that since this has been an annoyance of mine, and an ignored "problem". I should bring it up yet again. In a VERY old post of mine from I don't even know when I had almost 2 paragraphs dedicated to a rant about how this should either be blocked in perms or just allowed all together. I don't mean any disrespect towards any staff members or any server operators, but seriously I feel that this "problem" should, as stated before, either be allowed all together (not saying we should make an announcement saying "Here's the command feel free to use it whenever you feel like it" but rather just have it not be a problem, if you know the command good for you if you want to know it you should be allowed to know), OR it should just be blocked all together in the permissions. I'm pretty sure the post was called "Staff Questioning" or something like that. I really hope that this will "problem" will be solved shortly. Thank you for your time, Kav

    JRLevels

    ****Please take this the right way, I have no intention in insulting the program or the ones who designed and or created it.*** Personally I feel that forcing people to use wooden tools is not really needed, or should only be required for the first 5 or so levels of a specific task. Second I feel that although this is a refreshing change from the typical mcmmo it still, ultimately, gives you the same outcome. Also I recommend to those who created it (assuming it still isn't a W.O.P.) that you add more information on each skill. Perhaps a command that brings up a help page telling you how you rank up, and other various information that could be useful. For example maybe "Although you may be able to craft stone tools, until you rank up each specific task you may not be able to use them" or "Mining Ores is/isn't (I personally don't know) worth the same, xp wise, towards ranking up. Hopefully you can see that this is CONSTRUCTIVE criticism and in no way is intended to insult anyone/anything.

    What Happened?!?!?!

    Thanks, I hope that post didn't sound offensive or anything if you took it taht way than I apologize.

    What Happened?!?!?!

    Oh, I forgot to mention, the ip's I've been using are the nolagtekkit one and and the play.jrcraft. Whatever the survival one says under the home tab.

    What Happened?!?!?!

    Some of you may know (or remember) me, and yes I know it has been a while. For those that do not know me here is a one sentence background: I used to play JR all the time before, then I did other things, and now I'm back. Now call me a nooblet if you want but What has happened?! It used to be that I had a hard time getting on the JR servers but now the most people I've seen on a server is 6. Ok, now I may be using the wrong ips. I've checked the tekkit and the survival and I've seen practically no one. If anyone would like to add a little insight on the topic please help.
  13. Ok so this blog is gonna be short and sweet, I just typed a 200+ blog and when I went to delete a word that I misspelled I, by accident, went back a page and lost everything. So as of right now I am taking a break from blogging because that really annoyed me. I don't know whether the website is designed that way or whether I am just stupid but I really hope it's cause I'm stupid because that really pissed me off. AHHHH!
  14. ummm I feel really stupid but JR Messenger = ? and where can I find this magical thing you called JR Messenger?
