VeteranCraft is a completely legit (Absolutely no one, even staff, can spawn items, use World Edit to 'cheat', etc.), amazing server that has carefully chosen plugins, rules, and all other things to make sure that your experience is a great one.Whether you like the simplicity of Minecraft without all of the mods, or the modded Minecraft with numerous new features, VeteranCraft is the place for you.
Our website has is a great place to find out more about us. It also has our active forums, which have over 20,000 posts from over 850 members. Our website has over 5,700 pages indexed by Google. Go now to:http://www.veterancraft.net/.
Our server uses no whitelist, so you can instantly hop on and play.
Upon entry, you will enter an orientation tutorial that takes about 20 minutes to get through. It's how we filter out worthless griefers and kids who like flying and trolling. Once you get through it, you'll be amazed at the quality of our players.
The staff on this server are all very mature and carefully picked to make it so you do not feel abused.
While we will not rollback a grief unless something huge happens, you have the plugin residence to protect your things which we have a guide for on our site.
Ban appeals go in the Ban Appeal section of our forums.

No unattended redstone circuits are to be left on, especially complicated ones (this taxes RAM and causes lag).

Veterancraft's server has the promise of becoming a popular server. Owner and admins are friendly and professional. I am particular pleased by its dictum of fairness for all - everyone works for their mats, no privileged (admins) / grunts (the rest of us) segregation. The "live map" feature is extremely fast and responsive. The only slight downside is that it is an open server, so at times you have "listen" to self-important, attention seeking whiners. Fortunately, safe-guards are in place to minimize griefing both at the global and player level. Its a small price to pay, rather than deterring that potential gem of a member through a long application process.
While I'm generally happy with my current server, recent changes in direction and support staff have me cautiously looking for another alternative. Vertrancraft fits my need and it will definitely be my "second home", or main server if things go to pot elsewhere :smile.gif:
Hop on and see for yourself. Hope to see you there.
Well, relatively new to the server, happy to see some familiar faces already, and the new faces seem to be pretty friendly and easy to get along with. :smile.gif: So far I really like the server, could really get used to it here.
