For them to destroy our small town
Oh, yeah, whatnow is an eediot.
what the hell happened
Happened the what? Hell.
Is the server not up or something?
Should be. I'm not sure, since putty randomly disconnects, the server I'm using doesn't have screen support in any sense, and every time my computer crashes, the server goes down.
Hello. Please get on. Also, what the hell does "take a fence" mean? [editline]3rd March 2011[/editline] In regards to [QUOTE=venn177;28244209]Harassing admins is a great way to take a fence.[/QUOTE]
Okay, well, all the random downtimes are gone now that I've moved to brohoster.

[QUOTE=Esteam;28416005]Profan gets jealous of good servers. Venn, could I get whitelisted? My IGN is Ashten[/QUOTE] Done. [editline]4th March 2011[/editline] Well, let's all play a game called "Breaking down the dumbs!" In this game, we point out the most probable reason the thread was rated dumb. Profanwolf - Competition Warrant - Friend/troll, interchangeable. johnlmonkey - Competition The Great Ghast - Competition [editline]4th March 2011[/editline] I see a trend.
Server needs populating
Extreme populating
So populate it. Sex or inviting people, either works. PS whilelist will be down for the next two or so days, anyone who joins in that time will automatically have their name automatically added to the whitelist for when it gets turned back on.
When ever i build something and log off for the night, i come back the next day and all my chests have been raided :|
We need events bro, where everybody gets in and we all have a Minecraft orgy.
Sorry about your workstations Mombasa, it was a joke regarding you talking about how trapping someone's house with TNT would be a dick move. I'll fix it when I get home.

This has whatnow written all over it. [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/Xdtx7.png[/IMG]
don't worry mombasa, we're fixing it
I think I have a plan on how to get more people in the server. It's really lonely in there. Just please listen and actually think about this for a minute. 1.) On the subject of that pro-theft and grieving rule: I hate both of those things and so do the vast majority of people who play SMP. Nothing is worse than having your beloved material possessions/ house disappear overnight. 2.) Install mods to protect the lovely players. Lightweight Chest Protection can thwart stealing (People usually ask anyways and you can set your chests to allow groups of people and even password them). Anti-Fire/lava can thwart massive, unfair destruction in the instance of town-raids in PvP. 3.) Enlist more OPs. Seriously, I can't tell you how scared I am when I think about how I may have just told a potential griefer the location of our town and only people on the server at present are people who can't do shit about it if something does happen. 4.) Steam group. This one is not really necessary but it makes for a quick and easy way to announce things that are happening on the server as well as get a general headcount of the playerbase. 5.) Finally, advertisement out the ass. I'm talking every 10 or so pages in the Minecraft chat thread, reminding people to get on through the steam group, telling friends, etc. 6.) Server costs. I think that for right now, it's fine. Later, when you exceed your player cap, you should set up a donation link on Paypal for upgrades. I'm sure regulars like myself wouldn't mind chipping a bit into that. Offer in-game rewards to people who donate $5 or more with a VIP title, custom colored names, a nifty diamond armor/tool kit, and/or exclusive commands. I know that this isn't my server and I know what you may be thinking, but the server is just so empty it's excruciating sometimes. Just telling people to come on isn't going to do shit for us because we're new, we have loads of competition that is squashing us like a bug, and we can't gain a foothold because of all that. If you're lazy/ don't feel like doing these things, that's fine. Just let someone else take care of it.

how do i locate where i am..... also i burnt down most of my forest, wondering how i did it.
Oddly enough, when shit gets destroyed, I just get the urge to build more shit. Also it's cool. And I guess I'll make a steam group now.
Hey venn, you should totally put me on the whitelist [editline]8th March 2011[/editline] Also mombasa, my network was being an ass so I couldn't actually do anything

I just joined. Empty. Nothing on the map. [editline]8th March 2011[/editline] It also looks fucked up. Straight fucked up.
The main town is far from spawn, and venn's lazy ass won't fix the plugins.
i cant even connect to the server anymore.....
I have no idea what the hell happened. If he isn't on soon I'll figure something out.
[QUOTE=Mombasa;28501744]The main town is far from spawn, and venn's lazy ass won't fix the plugins.[/QUOTE] See, this is what I'm talking about. Come on Venn.
Sorry guys, been with my girlfriend for, like, two days, and she doesn't let me on the internet. Just got home from work. First order of business: silentjubjub is in charge of the server plugins, message me on Steam. Mombasa is in charge of the community and getting people the fuck in there. Also message me on Steam.
