Staff Announcements

Post by ShadowScale on Fri Jan 24, 2014 11:19 am

This thread is here so that Staff members can announce anything that will affect the server, or affect how the staff member contributes to the server. Please post important announcements including:

  • Any vacations or breaks you take from minecraft or your duties as a moderator on the server

  • Any deputies selected must be announced here also

  • Any problems that you are having with certain features or places on the server

  • Any problems you may have regarding your mod tools or quesions about these

  • Any other information that would be relevant and important to other staff members


Thank you in advance for providing information here, it helps us all communicate and collaborate to be more effective at moderating as a team, and keeps mods to date on what other mods are doing, as some dont see each other often due to timezones =]

Thank you Shadow for creating this thread, this will be useful for many things going forward.  Smile

Some additional news items I've mentioned on my blog that I might want to mention here for posterity:


  • Since our switchover, Ler and Dina are no longer moderators on the Big Sister server.
    .
  • Also due to inactivity, lack of communication and the transfer of her account to Jame's, Claire's moderatorship has also expired and so she is also no longer a moderator here.
    .
  • Drake has decided to take an indefinite moderator vacation for personal reasons.  He will return to his position when he feels he is ready, so please wish him luck in his endeavors. ^^
    .
  • Keegwi is in an indefinite GTA5 vacation.  Unlike Claire, however, he was courteous enough to let me know beforehand, so he is free to enjoy it as long as he needs.  Please wish him well.
    .
  • King has not been back on the server for a while due to technical issues and other RL demands, but he continues to keep in touch with me, so he is still technically a moderator on Big Sister.  Please wish him well.
    .
  • As of 1/10/2014, Shadowscale has been promoted to moderator on Big Sister.  Please congratulate him on a well-deserved promotion.
    .
  • As of 1/20/2014, BreakRoom has been promoted to moderator on Big Sister.  Please congratulate him on a well-deserved promotion.
    .
  • There is currently no Monthly Moderator on Little Brother due to that role not existing yet prior to 2/1/2014.


That is all for now, thank you. Happy Cia

I have selected one Deputy for now: AudreyAwesome

Selected her for the reasons listed below:

  • Always keeps up to date with the blog and is active on the forums
  • Has been on the server for a long length of time
  • Is respected by players and other mods alike
  • Communication is good between players
  • Is online at roughly the same time as me
  • When asked to do something by mods she is very co-operative

YAY!!!  LIZ IS AWESOME!!! Thank you ajj for deputizing Liz, it was a good choice on your part to get someone with the courage, discipline, experience, humility and awesomeness of Liz on board. I had wonderful experiences with her as my bread knight, so I know she will not let us down.  Happy Cia

Another quick update!

Lizeli9 will now have ShadowScale as her direct report, since her play hours coincide with his.

Thank you. ^^

In about half an hour, I will be going (actually dragged screaming and crying) off into the wilderness (way Northern California to some hotel that doesn't have wi-fi) so I will be completely unable to do anything server-related until late Saturday evening/Sunday. I might have a day of wi-fi on Wednesday to hang around on DynMap, though ^^

Awww Burger, you will be missed. On the other hand, that sounds like quite an adventure, I'm at least partially envious because I don't necessarily lament the absence of wifi... in fact sometimes I relish it. Very Happy

After struggling to make free time so I could visit the server I think that it would be best to announce that I'm going to be unable to log in for a while, I will continue to try to pop in every now and then but I will defiantly be less active.

Due to personal issues IRL that necessitate some time off from the server, Drakenguard is currently suspended from the staff and the servers until further notice.

Thank you.

Per a three-way agreement between Cayfie, Ajj and myself, there is a proposal put forth to permanently enable Worldedit on the server.  The staff present is sufficiently trained and reliable, so the risk of misuse is negligible.  These are the proposed changes we're looking at:


  • Moderators and Owners will get all Worldedit commands by default on account of being opped.

  • Although originally I had proposed giving Commissioners /gamemode to balance for the above, this would cut into the Survival aspect which should be treated as an asset.  Therefore, the new proposal is to also give Commissioners access to some or all WorldEdit commands, in which case they will be able to build amazing creations that match or surpass anything that can be constructive in Creative mode.

  • Deputies will now have access to the /give or /i command -- this will also encourage Deputy selection to be done more carefully.

  • Although we can't provide new powers to all other players, we can probably consider allowing KeepInventory to stay on permanently as a lot of its previous abuse was mainly the result of a few individuals.  Plus at this point its safe to say we've all grown accustomed to this "super-survival" aspect of our server, and should make the most of it.

Sounds like a good idea, it will definitely make building a lot easier especially when there is a lot of repeating patterns.

Okay, WorldControl has been permanently enabled on the server, and all Moderators and Commissioners will have full access to it without condition. Bear in mind this is an abridged version of WorldEdit, so it will only contain a fraction of the commands normally available in WorldEdit... even so, //set and //replace are usually all you need to create amazing works.  

Please review the Forge Essentials wiki for usage details:

https://github.com/ForgeEssentials/ForgeEssentialsMain/wiki/World-Control%20Module

https://github.com/ForgeEssentials/ForgeEssentialsMain/wiki/Core-Features


And remember... be VERY careful using this.  Wink


PS: oh and Deputies now have /give and /i, as well as the removal of the teleport cooldown.  I didn't realize that was still on for you guys. ^^;

Heya, =] if your wondering why ive not been on these few days, its been dark souls really taking up my time and other games.

But for the next few weeks, im going to have to knuckle down and work on my projects in college, as my animation is taking quite a while to finish and not sure im going to have a lot of free time these next few weeks.

So im announcing that ill be absent from the server till its completed. I hope to see you all then afterwards, when I can breathe out and relax, but its going to be tough xD sorry of any inconvenience this has caused anyone =<

  • Participates heavily in RPs on the server

Flammole has now been selected as a deputy. The reasons I have chosen him are:

  • Has past experience as a fantastic mod on Dravic's server
  • Have regular contact outside of minecraft
  • Is friendly to everyone on the server
  • Has already been helpful with many issues we've had on and outside the server
  • Is online at the same range of time that I am

Hello all.

I am overjoyed to announce that Kingking11 has accepted an offer to continue as Commissioner on our server rather than a Moderator, and this switch is to be made effective immediately.

This is due to a combination of real life needs that make fulfilling all Moderator responsibilities difficult, in combination with the great admiration and respect that he has for Survival play.  All this makes him more than an ideal candidate for Commissionership, and given he rarely uses Creative or Command Blocks, functionally he has exactly the same abilities as before.  In no way should this be thought of as a demotion or downgrade -- Commissioners are still survival moderators, and still have full and total enforcement capabilities.

I am very proud and appreciative of King for helping to rebalance our staff, and I hope this will set a good precedent.  Thank you so much!

It is also with great disappointment to announce that Ajjget is currently suspended from her staff position due to breach of Moderator responsibilities.

I will add additional updates as they're made available.
