Old Age Pensioners is a so called NKND server, which stands for No Kids, No Drama. Because we do not allow people to become members under the age of 15, the drama is significantly lower compared to other servers and becomes a safe haven for mature players and helps with our amazing community of players on the server. The youngest player on OAP is 15, the oldest is 59 years old and that's no joke! We don't have exact numbers, but we estimate the average age on the server is early 30's.
We also have a strict rule on bans as a somewhat quality control, so no-one with any history of griefing etc is allowed to build/destroy giving our community just a little bit more reassurance about where they're playing.
We run a number of basic plugins: Essentials ChestShop Lockette LogBlock Multiverse (with three worlds currently up and running!)
The original idea was to create a newbie-friendly environment and to become a nice and relaxed community, specifically aimed at a more mature audience than other servers might aim for. Therefore we have set up a few rules and guidelines if you want to become a builder on OAP. Please note that we are not whitelisted and do not use these forums to boost our post's viewcount. Anyone is welcome to join and have a look as long as they have an MCBans reputation of at least 8.00 or higher.
When you first join the server, you will spawn into the rules area. Take my advice and actually read all the signs before you say you are ready for the test. It's not a really hard test, trust me, it's just to make sure that you have read our rules so there should be nothing to worry about providing you did read the signs.
We are very careful of who we allow on the server, to protect our loyal members from any griefing, stealing or other trouble.
When you get past the initial tests, you (if everything else is in order) will be promoted to Builder and you can roam free where you like on our massive map (6000 block radius). We suggest you go to the tutorial area provided in the spawn area and see further commands and a brief explanation of them there. After you familiarize yourself with the commands you can choose between running around yourself or taking a subway line to another town. Our subway system consists of several dozen of miles of track, leading to almost every place you would want to be. If you like what you have just read and we haven't put you off yet, you are most likely planning to connect to our server very soon. In that case, we hope to see you very shortly and looking forward to speaking to you.
The Survival World - In which the player can do as he or she pleases such as build with little rules to follow except for the server rules of course and you can also get the VIP rank for this world which means you can get creative mode!
The Skyblock World - Basically what it says on the tin, for those of you who know about the skyblock plug-in, that lets you start off on an island in the middle of no-where with a heck of a long way down and a few limited supplies that you have to use well in order to expand your island.
We are still looking for moderators on OAP!
We need one more player from the European time zones.
And a few more players from American time zones.
You feel like one? And do you live in the right place?
Just pay us a vist!
