@Jkeller4000 Does anyone feel the five stages of greif when they get greifed?
I love the denial stage. It was a small greif, it was Not too bad. I can rebuild!
I love the anger stage. I will greif them back! I will cause them harm! I will raid them!
I love the depression stage. I am never goign to play minecraft again i quit! I am going to be a nomad; a recluse!
Bargaining! If i build a huge base then they will not greif me again! If i build out of obsidian, then they will not greif me again! I will not hurt you if you give me back my beacons!
Acceptance! Greifing is apart of the game you win some you lose some just having fun is what is important!
Every time i get greifed I think of the stages and wonder which one i am currently in, I was angry at someone who username was blue_something :( i feel bad because i was too mean to them and they left :(
I stopped playing minecraft for a bit because i just am kinda in the depression. and decided playign with the seebeck effect irl would be more interesting. but then while walking someone got mad at me for pushing the walk button on the light and crossing the street when the walk sign was on soi guess irl is too full of greifers for me too!
But i will try to fak the acceptance stge until i get there! It is just a game! the goal of a game is to enjoy my time! And that is what i will do enjoy playing!
So do you also try to pay attention to what stage of greif you are in when you get greifed?
I get stuck in the anger stage, I understand griefing is a part of the server and if bases are found or leaked in game it's within the rules. Recently we have had a string of bases griefed from people using a new exploit which we are working on preventing.
Griefing through exploits is unacceptable and at this moment we have handed out 60+ bans in the last 7 days because of this. All of the IPs associated with the accounts along with alt accounts have been banned as well.
I'm not sure which category you fall into, if your base was found through legit means or from this new exploit. Feel free to message me your story and I will see what can be done.
For everyone else we are doing our best to keep you all safe from this, to anyone thinking of using this exploit you will be caught and IP banned.
We are taking this very seriously and Crafty is working hard on solving the problems created by Mojang.
It has been a while since this happened and I really do hope you've learnt from your mistakes. Our rules haven't changed but we have added to them. Please refresh yourself on the rules before rejoining the server.
I will pardon you effective immediately, I will also pardon your brother's account
nick123457 but I also advise he reads the rules as well.
We've been discussing your unique case as it's been quite sometime since you have been banned. 3 years ago your ban was made permanent after being banned 4 times (for mostly the same thing, ignoring staff warnings and disrespecting staff) and finally while waiting out your 4th ban you were caught advertising this server on other servers.
So taking into account the time banned, your age at the time and the offences, the decision is thus. We will pardon your account iiTzzJojooo and it will also be unbanned on the forums.
However, should you break our rules again I will reinstate your ban as a permanent one.
You are being given a second chance, consider this your probation.
Thank you for your application. :)
I am the administrator responsible for your ban. I conducted a investigation of a report I received and found you guilty of being in possession of duped items and guilty of duping. The owner of the server was also included in the investigation and the items were removed from the server.
Any form of cheating will not be tolerated - This means anything that gives you an unfair advantage over players who are playing the game the way the game was intended to be played. This includes but is not limited to: non-approved clients (hacked clients, minimaps), abusing in-game glitchs (duping, x-ray, breaking bedrock) and xray texture packs.
Your appeal is denied.
Just compounding on what Baron has said here the admins self regulate. We also have the oversite of the owner himself who has the ultimate authority and the final say. We are accountable to each other and to him.
Realistically the only one who can ban people for not liking them is the owner (since it's his server) and this has never happened, despite there being several occasions where it would be completely justified.
Baron summed it all up very nicely, if you get your IP banned it's for a damn good reason.
@SteakKnives The only way to completely avoid the chance of being banned, is to play offline games.
This is true to an extent or you can simply follow the rules, which are basically comprised of common sense and decency to others. Alot of people who end up banned either cheat or for the most part are trolls and or people talking about controversial topics. This is a game plus its on a server where minors and familys come to play. Certain topics make people uncomfortable or can get out of hand so we don't allow them.
Play within the rules keep the chat topics PG and you are golden.
Sorry I can't take this report seriously.
The staff member in question was acting within the rules. I find nothing of substance in your report to act on. Since you have approached this in the way you have, it leaves me to believe you are just a troll and that we are better off not having you on the server.
I wish you all the best and if you do come back please read the rules.
You were banned under DiamondMiner7655 - 2015/08/18 20:56:48. As you have already stated in your edit, no we do not unban players who have used hacked clients on the server. We used to give people second chances but it's just a waste of our time to keep an eye on them.
It's also been proven time and again that people just re offend so we have taken the hard line of just letting that account stay banned.
Best of luck on other servers in the new update.
You have attempted to appeal this ban several times now and have had your appeals rejected multiple times. Twice by Administrators and once by the Owner, you will not be pardoned this time either.
Here is a link to your old appeals in case you wish to refresh your memory.
