Lots of people are talking about how I am showing favoritism and biased stuff, etc because I did not Ban GizmoPrison or Death020 for saying the name of a server.
A lot of people out there don't know that saying the name of a server is a Ban, so I am good with second chances.
Everyone knows you can't come on and say,
"Hey, EVERYONE GO ON MC.ADVERTISING.COM!"
"Hey, guys, I'm going to mc.advertising.com, bbl".
Not everyone knows this:
"Guys, I will brb, going to play on SomeServer."
"Did you hear about Johnny's App on SomeRandomServer?"
So everyone knows, advertising in any of these forms will NOW BE A BAN! I am making sure that everyone knows this, and I will be mailing and posting this everywhere.
(ALSO, DO NOT SAY NAMES OF SERVERS IN PRIVATE CHAT)
Keep these conversations to skype or some other messaging system!
I have been racking my brain lately for some ideas to make ImprisonedCraft (Gizmo's OP Prison) more fun and OP. This being said, I have decided to host a contest for any ideas you, the community, may have. Your ideas can be anything you have in mind, whether it's an original idea, a current plugin, or seen on a different server. I will review the ideas, and decide which ones I feel would be most fit for the server. Go wild, I look forward to seeing your ideas!
NEW PROPOSITION: Whoever comes up with the best ideas for ALL of the gizmo sub servers will earn a huge prize. We are always looking to better our servers, and we want to see what you, the community, can come up with. Servers that must be included: GizmoPrison, Imprisonedcraft, KitPvP, Zombies, Skyblock, and OP Factions. Be sure you have a suggestion for all of the servers listed above, and we, the owners, will decide on the winners. We look forward to seeing all your ideas!
As many of you may already know, many GizmoServer Admins have been making up their own rules for certain AntiCurse protected words, rules that are already stated in the Gizmo Rules section. When words like "nigger" are said, you already have respected rules to be followed. Yes, the word may be found offensive to certain parties, but being muted for a whole week is simply preposterous. You have certain rules to be followed, and we expect you to follow them. Just because you find the word especially offending doesn't mean you get to make your own rules separate from Gizmo's. Treat it as any other AntiCurse word, and give them a mute warn.
Recently, I have also seen many staff members giving mute warnings for "disrespect" by calling them a noob. If you feel that noob is offensive to the point of a mute warning, then you are not ready for the internet. Disrespect qualifies as cussing out a staff member, calling them bad at their job, or other related topics. Being called a noob, bad at...
Over the past week or so, several changes has happened to our network. I'll explain here.
- Added a new teamspeak server
- IP: ts.gizmoservers.net
- Switched hosts to OVH. (www.ovh.com)
- GizmoPoints is currently broken. I've started to redo the plugin so it will work once again.
- Removed God apples from guards and added new potion effects.
- Adding plotme to replace blackmarket. You will be able to create your own shops in a plotme world.
- Adding a new feature for void and quartz donators. It is essentially a "backpack" feature that will allow you to have more space in your inventory.
- GizmoZombie is working back to it's full potential.
- SparkTrail is currently broken, but I will update the plugin soon enough.
- If you have ANY suggestions / ideas, please report them on our forums.
- Reset entire server
- Added new features, new kits, new abilities, and more.
- This is just...
