#60868 -------====={Read Before Posting a Ban Appeal!}=====---------

Posted by raidmax21 on 17 October 2012 - 07:19 PM

If you are not the Problem or the Solution then stay out of the process.



Ban Appeals

If you are reading this, there is a high chance that you are banned or you are just checking out the ban appeals section. So if you are banned or get banned, please read through this entire post or there is a very high chance your appeal will be rejected and declined.

TeamExtreme Is a Huge Minecraft server and over time we have formed our own ban appeals system that is very effective. Our system works as the following: Once a player is banned, they then have the chance to make a ban appeal. Once the appeal has been made with the correct format, they then must wait for the admin/mod who banned them to read and process the appeal. Only the mod/admin who banned the player can process it, so don't even think about crying to another admin or your appeal will be closed.

Formatting.
To post a ban appeal it must first be correctly formatted or your post will be ignored. So please follow the below format.

  • The title of your Post must be as following: "player name - ban message - staff name". So if your name is "jimmy" and your ban message is "Griefing a house -flak" your title should be "Jimmy - Griefing a house -flak". The staff name is very important.
  • In-game name:
  • Date Last Active:
  • Today's Date:
  • Ban Message:
  • Apology:

Things that can't be appealed.
Not every offense can be appealed so read through the the list of things that can't be appealed.

  • Xraying
  • Mass spamming
  • Attempting to hack the server.

Excuses.
We go through a lot of ban appeals and if you want to get unbanned, don't even think about using the following excuses or your post will be closed.

  • "I don't know why i am banned, i have done nothing wrong." You would not be banned if you did nothing wrong. Also we have heard this plenty of times:
  • "My brother/sister/aunt/uncle/cousin/billy bob/ president did it and I don't deserve to be banned." It gets you no where.

Here is what not to do.
Doing the following may result in a permanent ban:

  • PM staff with your ban request or for status on your ban request.
  • Bother staff about ban requests or for status updates on the "chat" section of the forums
  • Constantly ask about your ban request.
  • Talk shit to the mods/admins that hold your appeal in their hands.
  • Lie.
  • Make multiple posts about your ban.
  • DO NOT attempt to pit one of us against the other. It won't work. We will all just be unified in kicking your ass out.
  • Posting a fake account name to remove a IP ban (It will not work and will be declined).
  • Bump your post within 24h.
  • Log into game on another account (ban evading)!

Final notes.
So if you have read through the post and your appeal is correctly formatted, then you should get an admin response within 24h.
If you are still 100% sure you have done nothing wrong, we can extend our investigation, however if you have done something against the rules this investigation will surely uncover it.

#278175 3. Forum Rules

Posted by Chrishankhah on 26 July 2014 - 07:55 PM

Forum Rules

 

In addition to our in-game rules, we have seen fit to draw up a set of guidelines that specifically pertain to the forums. Please read these carefully. Failure to follow these rules may result in a permanent and unappealable removal from the forums.

 

 

Rules for courtesy on the forums:

  • - Never blatantly disrespect staff or any other player. Just as it is in game, rudeness and malicious trolling will not be tolerated. Pretend to get along or ignore people, if you must.
  • - Do not start or perpetuate arguments. It's fine to discuss and debate things, but keep it civil. If it gets out of hand and staff has to get involved, there will be consequences.
  • - Do not harass other players. If a player asks you to stop talking to them or bringing them up, do so. No one should be made to feel uncomfortable here, regardless of your vices or attractions.

 

Guidelines for Banned Players:

  • - If you are banned in game, please follow this ban appeal procedure [Click Here]!
  • - Do NOT private message staff, or you will be one step closer to a forum ban as well.
  • - Do not lie on your ban appeal. there will be permanent consequences, and we have ways of finding you out!
  • - If you are NOT the person who was banned, then do not post in Ban Appeals WITHOUT a good reason. Play it safe and get approval from staff, first.

 

Guidelines for Trading:

  • - Do not scam or even attempt to scam other players here. If you post a trade or an auction, it is your responsibility to see it through, or cancel if you must.
  • - We do not allow Real World Trading on TeamExtreme. Guidelines for what is and what is not allowed have been posted in the past, but they will be reiterated in a separate post, soon.
  • We have specific rules for auctions held on the forums. Please CLICK HERE to read the "Auction Rules" thread before bidding or hosting your own!

 

Forum Rules that can result in a permanent ban:

  • - Do not post any pornographic images or links, or anything that may be illegal and cause problems for us. You will likely be banned permanently
  • - No Troll Accounts - You are allowed ONE account, and that is your own. There is no reason you should have to make another unless specifically permitted by staff. Accounts made to evade a past forum ban or troll other players will result in a permanent ban on all of your forum accounts.
  • - No Spam bots - We know you aren't reading this, but you aren't welcome here. You will be banned on sight. :)

 

 

Some rules have greater consequences than others and have been worded to reflect this. Those which do not result in a permanent ban will result in a warning from a staff member and a mark against your forum account. If enough marks accrue (and it does not take many,) you will lose your forum-posting privileges permanently.

Again: If you are banned from the forums, you CAN NOT appeal. Further, if you are banned from the forums, that will prevent you from appealing in-game bans, too, so take care to follow these rules very carefully!

#124 How to make a report *Please Read First*

Posted by raidmax21 on 19 December 2011 - 09:55 PM

How do I report that player...?
This post is all about how to make a report.

49789c611b25b7efd15a8f590b3cefb8.png

Admins have the ability to see who place, broke and took blocks. We can also rollback specific player changes, so please make sure to follow the info below when making a report.

When making a report please copy this format:

 

Your in-game name:

Faction Name (if applicable):

What was taken:

Where it was taken from:

Coordinates (X, Y, Z) type out the coordinates, do not refer to a picture:

Server / World:

Who you suspect and why:

Screenshots (if any):

 

Please also do the following things:

  • If you have any evidence such as pics then please upload them via Imgur.com and post the link here
  • If you are reporting advertising or any other illegal content, please block out any web URLs, IPs or anything else illegal to post, or you could get in trouble, too!
  • IF you need to include information that must not be posted (for example, screenshots of an advertiser or details about an exploit,) vaguely mention that your evidence is not allowed in a public post, and a staff member will contact you if it is needed.

Admins are busy and even if one is online it still can help to make this report on the forums, because it can be a pain for admins to get all this info through the MC chat, plus this way all the other admins can see the progress of the matter.

#313187 Rules For Auctions (Updated 05-01-2016)

Posted by NoRetribution on 13 December 2014 - 12:19 PM

One rule for all (and in the darkness bind them):

There is to be no editing on auction posts. This is to maintain the rules below.

Another way of looking at this is: you cannot change requirements after posting your auction. Similarly a bid cannot be changed once posted.

I cannot stress this enough. DO NOT USE THE EDIT BUTTON ON AUCTION THREADS.

 

Rules for bidders:

 

1. You must have the money you bid with. If you win the auction and do not have the money you bid with to buy the items, the bid will be considered a scam.

 

2. All bids must be made with the intent of purchasing the item.

 

3. You may only retract your bid in auctions where the bidder has reserved the right to refuse to sell. If they do not reserve that right, you may not retract your bid.

 

Rules for sellers:

 

1. An end date for your auction must be stated. The end date can be an exact date and/or a certain requirement. It must also include a timezone for the end date time.

Examples:

11:59pm GMT on the 12th of December 2014.

After 24 hours with no additional bid.

11:59pm GMT on the 12th of December 2014 or after 24 hours with no additional bid, whichever is later.

 

2. If you wish to reserve the right to refuse to sell, you must state so in your initial post for the auction.

 

3. If you state a value on the item you are auctioning it must be reasonable. It is highly recommended you do not state a value as TE's prices change rapidly.

 

4. Planning with other users in order to raise the price of your auction is illegal.

 

Format:

Note, if you wish to leave a requirement for bidding out, mark it as "None"
 

Items:

Starting Bid:

Minimum Bid Increment:

Buyout:

End Time:

#2 2. Server Rules

Posted by raidmax21 on 10 December 2011 - 02:10 PM

General Server Rules                                                                       updated April 2017
 
Rules:

  • Don't break or steal other people's things (i.e. "griefing".) Don't build on other peoples builds without permission.
  • Don't Impersonate a Mod, Admin or any staff member.
  • Don't talk in the chat with all capitals or you will be muted.

  • Don't build 1x1 towers to the sky.
  • Don't use any sort of automated in-game or external means to evade the 20 minute idle kick.
  • Don't make Redstone clocks. This means a Redstone circuit that is constantly pulsing that can't be turned off.
  • To reduce lag, you must use only a bare minimum of hoppers. No hopper transport tubes. More info here.
  • You may curse but keep it civil and don't spam.
  • Respect other people.
  • Don't bitch about server restarts or lag.
  • Please keep non-English text out of global chat. Use PM or faction/ally chat. (/m [player] [message]) or (/ch f) for faction chat or (/ch a) for ally chat.
  • No cheating or hacking.
  • No x-ray texture packs or mods.
  • No account sharing or trading VIP Status.
  • Maximum of two working player accounts per person.
  • Maximum of 16 animals per type, per faction. Horses, donkeys, and mules count as the same type. Mooshrooms and cows are separate types.
  • To build, you must be in a faction, and have the land claimed. No building in wilderness.
  • Darkroom spawners using autokill mechanisms or water flushing to push mobs off of spawning pads are not allowed anywhere. More info here.
  • Autofarms cannot be fully automatic. They must be triggered manually, with a button, by a human player.
  • Pigmen farms (Portal farms) can contain no more than 8 total portals per farm.
  • Do not kill players outside of PVP, or build death traps.  If your build is designed with the potential to kill players beyond the dangers of basic exploration, warning signs must be present. If in doubt about a build, ask staff!
  • Web links (URLs) outside of the TeamExtreme domain are NOT allowed at all in game. You may post TeamExtreme links, such as links to forum threads, but anything trade-related (auctions, bulk offers, etc.) must be posted in trade channel or in PM, or it may be considered spam.  Links must not contain inappropriate content.
  • Attempting to circumvent the plugin-enforced chunk shopland/outpost land limit will result in punishment. More info here.
  • Additional rules apply to VIP players. Link

Policies:
 
Land Claims: Faction land belongs to the faction.  Players cannot "own" land.  Players who recieve land from other players, whether as a gift or in exchange for money or goods, are recieving it for the faction they have it claimed under.  This land is managed at the sole discretion of the faction's current leader and in the event of any controversy, it is up to that leader to decide on whether to keep it. If the faction leader is banned, you can request a kick of the banned faction leader 14 days after the ban occured. In the cases of disputes or absence of the faction leader, admins will have the final say. This policy is intended to protect factions and provide a simple resolution to issues that arise.  Those who try to use this policy in order to scam players, or even their own faction, for access to valuable land will not be protected by this policy. Such issues will be handled on a case-by-case basis.
 
Overclaiming: Factions that have fallen beneath their alotted claims are subject to have land unclaimed by an admin at the admin's discretion. This land usually applies first to land that is unused but can apply to any chunks as an admin sees fit depending on the situation.  As this is a common issue, it is impossible to address every issue of overclaiming on the server, but players must be aware that their faction's land claims can be lost if they become overclaimed.
 
Lockettes: Items that you wish to protect must be kept in chests with your lockette attached.  Even if you lose access to the land, you can request a staff member assist you in retrieving your items. If you have left or were kicked from your faction and you need help getting your items moved, use our lockette request forum. You have 7 days if you have left your faction, and 14 days if you were kicked from the faction or banned from the server. If you do not get your items moved within the time frame, your items can be rightly claimed by the faction with a staff member's assistance, or they will be scattered to the ground once the lockette expires after 31 days.  A more detailed look at our lockette policy can be found here: http://forums.teamex...before-posting/
 
Faction Rules: It is up to a faction to enforce their own rules.  Server staff will not enforce these rules.  Factions may not make rules which are in opposition to the rules of the server.
 
 
So what mods can I use?

  • You can use mods like texture packs, chat mods, music mods, map mods (except mob radar), generally anything that does not cheat the game or the server. If in doubt, ask staff.

So what mods are banned?

  • Generally any mod that cheats the game, such as map downloaders, x-ray mod, speed, fly and jump mods, instant mining, tracer, extreme enchants, invisible mods, sneak mods, and teleportation mods.

Additional rules for VIPs here.
 
Rules for posting on the forums are here.

#151200 Planning for TE v3 - ETA? GTFO

Posted by raidmax21 on 09 September 2013 - 08:38 PM

Planning for TE v3 - ETA? GTFO

 

A long time ago I drew up some plans to make something called the TE Network, at the time it was not called the TE Network but its true name I came with and the domain were both stolen by an idiot of TE.The idea to build the TE Network was a crazy one at the time since back then it was extremely difficult.

 

Most server networks who have multiple servers setups, have 1 server called the hub and a few servers to play on. The hub's job is to simply have a few portals to other servers. I hate this because it splits up the community into separate isolated servers which don't communicate together, which sucks and are not as much fun...

 

The TE Network uses a different approach. Instead of just sending you to another server, this is more about a network by linking all the servers together, letting you move though them freely, trading across them, chatting and joining other players. The TeamExtreme Network does use a hub but it's more than just a hub. The TE hub server contains the entire spawn, this means every servers will use this server as it's spawn connecting everyone together. The hub also contains things like shops, public mines, VIP perks and more. The TE Network will also allow you to send PM's to anyone on any of the other build servers and some of the chat channels will also be connected.

 

The TE Network will also have a nether for pvp but this time, the nether is it's own server, it runs at it's own speed, not being slowed down from other worlds, this will give you extremely smooth PVP and much more people to kill since all the servers are linked to it.

 

TE v3 will not be out for a long time, there are many plugins which need to be made just for it but our tests for linking all 6 servers up were very successful and I'm moving onto the next stage of planning.

There are many TE clones out there but it will be interesting to see if the rats will follow.

#693678 The Long Goodbye

Posted by Kyzeragon on 08 October 2017 - 07:11 PM

There is no TL;DR for this. It wouldn't be right of me to go without a signature Kyzer wall of text. But you're welcome to skip the story if you don't care, which is probably true. I wrote it more for myself than anything. Or skip the whole thing.
_______________________________________________________
 
I wasn't one of those oldies that came from V1. TE was my first time playing a public minecraft server. I had run small servers for my friends before that, mostly for building things with WorldEdit and VoxelSniper. On March 18th, 2014, I finally decided I would click on this vulgar-looking server that came with the launcher my friend gave me. "Bitches Be Crazy!". I didn't think I would like it but I gave it a try.
 
I read all of the rules. I took the test. I read ALL of the library, imagine that! I spent my first day (or evening, rather) on TE harvesting resources and running around the spawn shops. That was back when there were no GUIs, and the spawn shops were purple wool portals in the admin shop section of the spawn. I resold iron from one shop to another -- all I thought about was making some money. One of my first memories of TE that I recount often was the Global chat while I was in the tree farm, cutting a big jungle tree from the top down, unlike the nooby way of cutting only the bottom trunk and leaving the top untouched. Some VIP (won't name names) said something to the effect of "only vips are invited to this party, nonvips are noobs". I thought to myself, "bruh, I've been playing Minecraft for 2.5 years before joining the server and I'm certain I know more about Minecraft already than most if not all of the people here". So I said in Global something like "just because someone is new to the server doesn't mean they're noobs at mc". Of course I was ignored.
 
I joined a faction called "Factional Fighting Corps Platoon 13" or something like that. It was pretty terrible. They didn't even have the common sense to put water near the farmland to keep it hydrated, and the faction leader gave me a little piece of sandy ground far from the faction home. Then, he insisted on building my house for me. That was terrible too. It was a jungle plank 2-story shack with some windows and my plants out front. I decided to leave it alone and went mining instead. I found some diamonds, and asked in Global whether there was someone who could lend me a fortune 3 pickaxe so I could get more of them, and even offered that the person who lent me the pick could keep some of the diamonds. No reply.
 
2 days later, I joined the forums. I looked in faction recruitment, saw that Atlas seemed to have decent builds, and applied to it with screenshots of the builds I had done before in my private servers. As terrible as my first faction was, I'm very loyal and I felt bad for leaving the faction, even though it had only been a few days, so I left a few signs on the inside of my house for the faction leader. That terrible jungle plank house and those signs are still there to this day -- it's claimed under Safezone somewhere, would have to find the warp again.
 
PyroAries was the one who moved me to Atlas. I met Gray538 and xMrArnoldx shortly afterwards. I was in awe at the huge statue of Atlas above the faction home, but I later found out that it wasn't an original build and was much less impressed. I met Karly42, Rix_17, Xarary, and others that I can't think of off the top of my head.
 
I really don't remember what I did with my plot, because soon enough my focus was on the $20 donation contest that ButterSnapz posted on the forums. I started up my private server, with VoxelSniper in hand, and built my Dragon Knight prototype. Over the next week or so, I slowly rebuilt the dragon knight in survival on TE, on land I claimed with my alt, Skewbix. It was a tedious process of gathering money from running pumpkins (fortunately, Atlas had a large pumpkin farm that I would use), then running to chubrox's shop in Whippy's mall to buy wool for my statue. I built it over a large shallow lake so that I wouldn't die as much when I fell off the build, but I still died a dozen times or so. I think it's still at /warp dragon.
 
I played mob arena too, and was quite good at it. I would always pick tank, and be the last one left, racking up hundreds of kills, with players yelling at me to "just die" so that they could play. My dragon knight entry got me noticed by Chrishankhah, and she got me onto TS. I remember the first day I couldn't speak because my roommate was taking a nap, but after that it was still hard to get me to use my mic. It just felt awkward speaking to my computer screen. 2PieceCombo and TrueRetribution invited me to Shockerz, which I accepted reluctantly after Karly accepted too. I met Smokezarn there, I think. Things are getting foggy about where and when I met who. I got an anonymous donation to Vip (which I found out very much later was from ButterSnapz), and then 2 days later got another anonymous donation that jumped me straight to EVip. A funny memory from that time was another EVip commenting on the fact that I had just answered a question in help chat: "wow, look at kyzer, already acting like an evip", yet I had been answering questions for weeks before that already. My first build as an EVip was a helicopter on the freebuild island at Shockerz. Able to fly now, I found out that I had missed the entire left armpit when I reconstructed my dragon knight on TE, so I patched that up.
 
Soon enough, hanging out with Chrish became hanging out with a lot of the staff members. Those were some of the best days that I remember. The "Good Ol' Days", if you will. I still have screenshots of us doing stupid things like boxing Chrish in with zombies hugging her, disguising as diamond ore in the spawn and watching new players trying to mine it, and putting on other staff's player skulls just to see how dumb everyone looked. Chrish created whole islands for each of us at Shockerz. I built a strange little house and my wyvern wrapped around the floating island with a beacon, the latter of which has been my Facebook profile picture ever since. Apparently my house got caked. So did all of Shockerz faction home. And pretty much all the other builds. Everything got caked when Flox or Flakman came by with world edit, throwing fireballs along the way. I built 2 more dragon warriors -- the archer and the mage. The archer stands now in the center of the Shop world, and the mage and spearman (a later addition) at the ends of the harbor, with the color schemes changed.

May 3rd, 2014. Promotions came around. Noodzz was promoted to assistant, and I asked him to set a warp for me on the xp farm that I had been building. That was when warps were from Essentials and staff had to set them for players. A few hours later, Flak PM'ed me ingame asking if I could get on TS. I jokingly replied, "am I in trouble? getting sent to the principal's office?". Apparently Retri and I got promoted. Noodzz, TrueRetribution, stevenpoore, AmazonQueenn, and I: the 5 assistant promotion, which I later learned was actually a very large group. I didn't worry about that though because I was soon busier getting all sorts of drama surrounding my promotion. I was incredibly new to the server, 1.5 months since I joined, and already an assistant? A lot of EVips were outraged. My promotion made at least one of them quit too.
Spoiler
 
But time went on, and apparently I did well enough to prove people wrong, because just 3 months later on July 29th, Noodzz, Retri, and I were promoted to mod. Sometime in between, I met Ebel while building roads for V3 with Smokezarn. Retri and I were inseparable for quite a while. We'd bounce things off of each other often, having been promoted at the same time and being online at similar timezones. Ebel joined Shockerz. Around August 2014 I also started playing around with coding Minecraft mods. MobCounter started getting widely used by all the nosy pseudo-staff trying to catch people with too many mobs.
 
January 3rd, 2015. I was promoted to admin. But as they say, with great power comes great responsibility, and players certainly pestered admins the most, seeing the fancy orange text. I quickly found myself hiding from players most of the time, and it helped that admins joined the server automatically vanished. Some time around here I also worked on Kyzbot, my Liteloader mod that was basically the precursor to ChatFilter. Some people didn't like that I was automating a lot of kicks using Kyzbot, but we followed through and made it an official plugin. It was my baby. MINE. Adding more and more checks to prevent rule-breaking in chat. Chat was pretty bad before when there weren't staff online to monitor, but that was with a player cap of 150 in V2. Imagine if we had gone to V3, with the raising of the player cap, without ChatFilter. A lot of you hate on it for not letting you spam faction recruitment or trades (that is by design :)), but what you don't see is how much of the garbage it filters out. The official Dev title came on October 25, 2015.
 
There are so many other events that I didn't write down the dates to. Ebel and I opened Shopperz. Not the Shopperz that you know now, but the smaller one outside north exit on the V2 map. The one that spawned multiple copycat shops with the exact same layout. We made so much money from it, and we bought donations for people that we liked and thought had potential. Some of those I regret, some of those turned out to be the best friends I've made on TE. bobam, datalyssa, Kaidun, TheBaron12, and InspectorGadget were some that went on to be staff. We built PvP arenas, the Winter PvP being the first - with my frost dragon, and Ebel doing all the terraforming and building by hand. We left Shockerz to start Phoenix. Those were some of the best days too -- building our own world, albeit in a corner of the world... We built V3 together too. A lot of what's here now we've had a hand in, one way or another, under the hood. Of course there were things that people couldn't agree on, but I'm not going to get into that. Shop world, Raidlands...
Spoiler
 
I used to answer hundreds of questions in help chat -- you don't see it now, but back in my earlier days I could answer as many questions as I wanted without being harassed in PM for some request that I didn't want to do, and that's exactly what I did. It was even better when I made an incognito account and ran around in survival, being able to help random players without being bugged. These are the usernames I've gone under before (maybe there were more), mixing with the players and deliberately harassing staff in PM with stupid requests. Maybe you've come across one of them during the time.
EnderpDragon - invaded TheCompanions, but made a mistake and had to reveal my identity to the officers. Chrish thought the name was super obvious but none of the players got it.
Spython - invaded TheRedstoners, and also trash-talked certain people who I won't name that I still don't like :D
Canzone - this one was short lived, don't remember what I did with it
Hetzer - played around in survival with some other incognito staff members
Ryujin - invaded Basilisk
Inktvis - invaded Paradise (B2)
 
I don't even know how many hours I've invested in Minecraft anymore. It's thousands of hours, maybe even more than ten thousand, and at least 90% of that must be TE. TE was pretty much my life throughout 3 years of college, and I made friends for life (I hope they are for life anyway, you never know). I won't even try to list all the people I've met and come across because I know I'll miss someone by accident. Most of the ones who have had the biggest impact on me aren't even active anymore.
_______________________________________________________
 
What's the point of all that reminiscing? Well, good things must come to an end. For me it faded out long ago. WE requests, password resets, account problems, plugin issues etc. became so much of a chore that I wouldn't come online because then I would feel obligated to do them. TE isn't what it used to be anymore. I don't usually mind change, especially if it's for the good of the players, but enough of it is in a different direction that I do mind it. I miss those days of closely-knit staff, mature players, general getting-along-with-everyone. I miss the simplicity of playing the game without having to turn off chat or use an alt account. I miss not having to deal with drama or take part in it. I don't believe these are things I can gain from TE any longer. I already know, like, and dislike too much, and I'm already too involved. It used to be that I could take a few weeks of break playing another game and come back refreshed and wanting to do things on TE, but not anymore. The novelty isn't coming back; I guess this was my last break from TE.
 
So goodbye, and thanks for the memories that I'll always remember and some that I wish I could forget. I'll stick around for a week or so to check forums and clean up ingame stuff but soon go inactive. Maybe I'll check back once in a while.
 
And before you ask, yes, Shopperz will remain. I've given my half of the shop signs to Ebel. I do still believe in cheap and accessible resources for regular players (even if it's out of stock most of the time).

#224528 Official Toons By Chrishankhah

Posted by Chrishankhah on 14 March 2014 - 09:33 PM

Important Update: Sales on new drawings are closed until I get through most of the current queue! I will announce when they are open again.

 

Got into a bit of an artistic mood recently, and made little "caricatures" of Minecraft Avatars for some of the staff. They're meant to maintain the characteristic Minecraft "blockiness" while interpreting some of the features into how they should really look :P

The following players can be bumped to the beginning of a 5-slot queue provided they post again once a queue has opened up. (This is because they made their requests before this change.) -

 

Macv0921 (paid), Michael1215, PyroAries_, BadGuyClaws, RSZoltar, Hurricane, Josephh225, Shadeshooter, Ghoof, Miruken, Various, PSP_Z, Trini_Miner

 

Small edits:

  1. Reaper024 - Wears a scythe on back

 

How to request a drawing: (Note: Requests are currently closed!)

  1. If you want one, comment with how much you're willing to pay, so that I know you understand this has a price. The minimum is 1m (1,000,000 in game money.)
  2. In your comment, please include and any details you want to add or specifications/alternate references I need to know.
  3. If your forum name is different from your registered Minecraft account name, please list that name so I can look up your skin!
  4. Try to restrict requested props not indicated on the skin to minecraft items only, and avoid requesting backgrounds. I will rarely make exceptions, and there has to be a good reason if I do.
  5. Do not pay me in advanced.  Pay me when it is finished. Being paid in advanced has a weird psychological effect on me and I almost always lose interest in the art I'm doing when this happens.
  6. Please tell me if: I miss your name on a list, if I accidentally add your name on the list but you didn't want to buy one, or if you need to cancel your request because you are changing your skin or can no longer afford it!

Also, you need to wait for the staff member that banned you to come and respond. Bump once every 24 hours. Remember, they have a life too.

#618502 Hopper Rule Clarification

Posted by Kyzeragon on 30 April 2017 - 10:14 PM

TL;DR: Always use the minimum number of hoppers possible. See pictures for examples of what to do and what not to do.
 
Hopper tubes. I think this is misunderstood very often. If we take it at face value, it's usually interpreted to mean multiple hoppers pointing into each other in order to transport items along a path. However, the intention of the rule outlawing hopper tubes was to decrease the overall number of hoppers that people would try to use because they put more strain on the server.
 
I would consider a hopper tube to be 4+ hoppers connected to each other (non-cyclic) to get items from point A to point B, something that you can do with a dropper + water flow instead -- and this is why we outlaw hopper tubes, to encourage people to use waterflows instead because these are less of an impact on the server's tick rate. If it's 3 hoppers, well it depends. If 3 blocks up straight, that means the middle one could most likely be replaced with a chest without much hassle. If it's horizontal, then it may be justified to use 3 like that. When in doubt, ask an admin. But it would be wrong to give the blanket statement that any hopper pointing into another hopper is illegal. The main objective is to remove superfluous hoppers -- that is, use only what is necessary, and no more extra than that. This helps the server be less laggy.
 
Here are some examples of what to do and what not to do. If you would like to see these ingame, go to Gaia and then /tppos -2622 12 1854
 
The left side has a hopper that can be replaced with a chest, as shown on the right.
Spoiler
 
This is definitely NOT ok. There are way too many hoppers in a row.
Spoiler
When you need to transport items a longer distance, use waterflows instead, like so.
Spoiler
 
Semi-automatic farms generally only need 1 hopper. There's no need to have 2 in the middle.
Spoiler
 
Egg farms also only need 1 hopper. The chickens don't mind being squeezed into a 1x1 hole.
Spoiler
 
There only needs to be 1 hopper transferring items between chests. 2 is unnecessary.
Spoiler
 
Somewhat related: hopper timers don't work as you'd normally think, because hoppers on TE move 16 items at a time and at a longer delay, to reduce lag. Just use a string of repeaters or comparators for long clocks.
Spoiler
 
Also related: hoppers for automatic furnaces are fine. Just don't go overboard, 3 per furnace max.
Spoiler
 
Don't use 420 hoppers in your guardian farm. Your player is going to pick up drops anyway, so why bother with all the hoppers? Only put hoppers where you can't reach. If your kill point is 3x3, then you can use just 1 hopper in the middle, like the example on the right.
Spoiler
Even better: don't use any hoppers at all.
Spoiler
 
TL;DR: Always use the minimum number of hoppers possible. See pictures for examples of what to do and what not to do.

#3997 GOLDRAGON83 WITH ANOTHER MESSAGE

Posted by 2PieceCombo on 24 February 2012 - 04:52 AM

Suck my fucking cock you trolling knob goblin.
You don't even know the alternate ip dumbfuck. And no, you haven't taken the server down once today. So go bend over and let your dad fill your loose asshole up again bitch boy.
I'd love to see you in person. I'd rip your arms out of their sockets and beat you half to death with them. Cut out your intestines and hang you from a tree in your moms yard with them. set you and fire, and piss it out. Your beyond annoying, immature, and pathetic. You actually take pride in being a troll? Are you seriously that desperate for attention that you just spam and troll everything you possibly can, because you know its the only way anybody will ever notice you? Whats the matter, did mommy not let you suck her tit enough as a child? Did your dad come into your room and touch you at night, and tell you if you ever told mom, he'd gouge out your eyes and skull fuck you till you died? Someone must have one sorry, desperate, miserable life to spend this much time trolling a server because he was banned for breaking the rules. All this over being banned on an MC server? I mean.... really? id unban jaff and vote him for admin before id let you on the server. You make jaff look like a god, that coming from the guy that would peel jaffs skin off, dry it in the sun and use it as a condom to fuck his mother. And just imagine, your about 12 million pegs below jaff. Hatred much? no.. hate is above you. Your too low to hate. There is not a word in existence to describe it. They haven't created a word to accurately portray feelings to someone as worthless as you. Your an insult to humanity, a joke to society.. people like you are whats wrong with this world. Your the reason people commit rape, murder, and every other violent crime. Just knowing there is someone as pathetic and worthless as you makes people so angry, they'd want to slit the throat of a child and fuck the dead body. You are the exact reason abortions were first used. To rid the world of complete and utter ignorance and putrid waste like yourself. You should have been born as a female to a couple in china so they would have thrown you off a hospital rooftop and watch you flail helplessly as your fragile little body rockets towards the ground, and smile a little as they watch the concrete break your fall, your body explode, and your insides paint the sidewalk below. If your parents would have known you would turn out as such a disgraceful waste of your fathers sperm and your mothers egg, they would have shoved a cake beater inside your moms vagina and scrambled your developing brain and body into a gooey mess.
So get the fuck out of here you slimy little fuck, post your trolling faggotry elsewhere.

#322866 A Veteran In Newcomer's Skin: Te In A Nutshell

Posted by Mayday_ on 01 February 2015 - 04:25 PM

Yes, I was around.
No, you couldn't have noticed me because I was incognito.

Short explanation: I decided to take out my alt and start from the very beginning, documenting and reviewing some things along. My playthrough could also be taken as a TE tutorial of sorts, hence the placement of the topic.
During my playthrough, I tried to interact with as many features as possible while making my own opinion of every one along the way.
Three spoilers lie b
efore you, one containing the review, other one containing my playthrough and the last one summing it all up with additional tips for newbies.

Let's start, shall we?

Review:

Some tips for the newcomers:

TL;DR I was bored so I took my alt for a spin and, meanwhile, contemplated existence.

P.S. I'm still in the process of editing it, so there might be additional paragraphs, as well as some edits on the way.

Thank you for your time,
Mayday
