i would just like to say-
every ban comes from a collection of evidence.
every admin comes from a long line of experience.
Most new players dont actually read the rules, which is why we issue warnings to those breaking rules.
if they continue, they get banned.
If an appeal is made, the staff member who made the ban can provide an answer explaining - and if need be, proof of reason to the other admins, if not directly to the player. There have been multiple instances where a ban was overturned because of lack of evidence, regardless of gut feeling. (i would also like to point out that every single one was eventually banned again)
As for IP bans- we dont just hand those out willy nilly. we ban accounts as individuals.
If we're forced to IP ban someone theyve either
-Been part of an attack on the server: like a raid or have connected using multiple accounts at the same time (usually spamming bullshit of one type or antoher)
- Have done something so decidedly unforgivable that their presence would never improve the server experience, and so we dont want them back.
as for the 2nd note: The chance of admins being a complete prick
Impossible. We dont allow pricks to become admins anymore. A long time ago there was a not so friendly attempt to coup the server, with an admin trying to declare themself head admin, and a ranking system and it was all very stupid. I caused an uproar when i overturned a ban they made from personal feelings, and eventaully their little heiarchy broke apart, some people went crazy, lots of drama... which brings us to today.
Helpers and Mods are watched. We get feedback from players, what we see, how they respond to situations...
If theyre a prick, they dont get to reach admin. :P
Oh im sorry, did you still not read the rules?
I honestly cant tell if youre trolling or if youre really that fucking stupid.
The people that actually care, they understand we have rules to follow. And we ask nicely. So they tend to agree and change whatever it was that was breaking the rules so they can play.
You were called a cheater by another player, which you agreeed to. Like a dumbass.
A staff member told you your name was too similiar to a fucking terrorist organization to be allowed on the server nd your argument is that theyre racist. So they act on their warning based on the rules that we follow, and you complain like a fucking simpleton.
You litteraly told them to ban you, instead oh thinking "oh, yeah, my name does look an aweful lot like a terrorist group, and im dressed like one, maybe i should change something". No, you decided to attempt outrage of racism, like a jackass. Youre not being discriminated against, youre acting like a child because you cant abide by the rules of the server. Fuck off. XD
As far as Bisexual is concerned, if you READ THE RULES, its clearly stated we dont allow that in the chat. They couldnt handle it either.
Welcome to the internet, cupcake. Follow the rules or GTFO. :P
If you read your ban, right there in the picture, it says "inappropriate name" not "racist name".
And yeah, you're an idiot if you think thats not wholely inappropriate.
"Firstly I would like to make the point that I am not racist, nor arabic."
yet here you are, going by an arabic name that just happens to be spelled almost exactly like a terrorist group,(that was already formed and known years before you "randomly" created your name), dressing your character in an arabic skin. But no, you're not the racist.

I mean, i could understand it if he was yelling at you about it. but he wasn't- He asked you nicely, he told you the specific reason, and you turned into a jackass. you claim it was racist, but wait.. it cant be racist, you're not arabic, by your own admission, you're just pretending to be one in a kids game.
If you had read the rules like you should of when you joined:
Practice good chat etiquette - Don’t use caps, don’t spam, don’t discuss controversial, sensitive or offensive topics (e.g. sex, sexual identity or preferences, race, politics, religion, drugs, etc.), no advertising, no links, no trolling. Please only use the minecraft font and English in global chat.
No inappropriate Names/Skins - This includes your name, item name, name tags, nude skins, body part skins, subjective skins, etc. If asked by staff to change something you have/use because of this, please do so!
Please listen to staff members - In order to keep the server safe, staff reserve the right to add, modify and patch rules.
@Jkeller4000 baron that is not the fun way to do things in life!
throw caution into the wind!
just kidding now everyone knows why i will never be anything more than just a regular player
I do appreciate you guys being cautious
IF you recal, the last time i "threw caution to the wind" i killed litteraly everything on the server
ill ban you if you try and start another riot ya bastard :P
First- you walk the fine line between our rules as often as you can.
Second- maybe you deserved a better warning.
But would you have actually listened? probably not. More likely you would have started an argument about it not explicitly being against the rules.
Third- youre lucky he decided to pardon you upon appeal. I would of left you banned for at least 3 days if id caught you doing something so stupid after being here so long.
"it's just otaku expressing his disapproval of my joke"- its not "just" anybody: its a staff member telling you that your joke isnt approved. understand it next time.
One step at a time m8, first we have to find the actual problem. we cant just kill everything and hope it works.
mass entities can be from a number of sources and were working on ruling them out before we start breaking stuff
Hopefully a few hours, Server owner is in a behind timezone so probably as soon as he wakes up.
Its not that we dont want to. we'd love to be able to trust people. but...We've been doing this a long time and have seen every type of person. the problem is, anyone willing to used a hacked client in the first place has a fundamental flaw- they think they can get away with it.
Once they get caught, they may give us a long and heartfelt apology but even if we forgive them and they promise not to do it again- now they have a grudge to do it again. This time they have more information, a knowledge of what got them caught before and that makes them sneaky.
We operate with a phrase learned the hard way: Once a hacker, Always a hacker
Its been proven a thousand times. Literally. Theres not a single instance where an individual granted a second chance hasn't eventually been caught cheating again and so we stopped giving second chances to cheaters.
