I'm here to announce the official release of our OP Factions server!
On the servers you can join it by doing /server gizmofactions OR by using the clock or portals in the hub.
There are signs to guide and help you on the server, so do not feel worried! If you find any bugs or issues PLEASE report them on the forums.
In the past week or so we've been working on a new way for inactivity on GizmoServers. Before it was that if you were offline for more than 2 days you would be demoted due to inactivity. However, today we are changing this rule.
Instead, we are now adding in a rule where you must have a MINIMAL amount of time played on the server in order to maintain your staff position.
You must play for 4 hours a week ATLEAST in order to maintain your position. To check your time played you must do /ic check.
For inactivity threads you MUST include a return date so that way you may be exempt for as long as you may need to be. If a return date is not included, then you will not receive any exemption from the inactivity rule.
On top of this, any rule that had to do with inactivity has been nulled. So the 2 min activity thing has been nulled and the 2 day rule has been nulled as well. NO, WE WILL NOT RESET ANY WARNINGS THAT WERE ASSOCIATED WITH THE INACTIVITY RULES!
So, as most of you have noticed, we have had a COD server portal sitting in the lobby for the past couple of weaks. I'm here to explain why it has been taking such a long time to release and I will also be talking about some more updates that will be coming on Gizmo.
Now, the reason why COD hasn't been able to be released as quickly as other servers have, is because this is a much bigger project than any of us have expected. There are bugs that are needed to be fixed, there are addons needed to be made, etc. etc. Essentially, it won't just take 1 week for the server to be released, it'll roughly take maybe another 2 - 3 weeks max. Also, we have been waiting for Bukkit to update to 1.7.2 because right now the plugin is fairly buggy with the current version of server builds we are currently using. In conclusion, we will HOPE to release cod when a supported build for Bukkit has been released.
Now, we have been thinking of adding another server along with COD. The one server that really...
As most of you have known, our old forums(enjin) have been unaccessible throughout the last few days. From that point, we decided that we would re-create our old XenForo website! Huge thanks to @Stare_at_me for helping create this website. Thank you all who have stuck with us through these hard times and we hope to see you guys on GizmoServers!
