Here's my review of the server:
Upon joining, there was absolutely nothing at spawn, apparently due to the builder being offline, which is a silly excuse in my opinion. If your builder was offline, why did you have a server started without him? Why didn't you build some temporary things to make more than a large jungle with nothing in it? So basically it wasn't a very nice welcoming to the server.
Apparently, random killing is not allowed, however the ops are constantly killing each other, which causes some of the players to do so, most likely assuming it's okay to do. The ops have also spawned items, spammed the chat, falsely accused people of things without even investigating, etc.
The spawn area is much better now, and has a very strange WIP ship, as well as a simple spawn building. There are some people building near spawn now too. The ops were hosting a pvp tournament/spleef tournament thing which seemed to be quite fun, and there was also a large amount of arguing between some of the ops, as well as one person who was de-opped due to power abusing or something similar to that. The server has improved somewhat, but it still is a bit low quality.
Now getting to the end of my experience today, I was enjoying some fun pvp in the tournament thing, when the server suddenly closed. Upon talking to one of the admins over skype, i discovered a few people (including the owner) were in a skype call, where the owner told the few people in the call about having to go to bed (which for some reason also means the server must be shutdown), but he neglected to tell the other players of this.
This is my final review of day one on this server. (Possibly I will edit in day 2, depending on how it goes.)
Ah, after writing this review, I have restored faith in myself that I can write a decently long post that is actually informative. Hope this helps people decide if they want to join this server or not. Happy minecrafting
So I will be recording a lets play series on this server if my fans like the series. In an edit later I will post episode 0 of the server where I talk about my first impressions of the server and where I will take the series if my fans enjoy it. http://youtu.be/-DrEAB9HW7E
