Everytime I go to a server I play for about 2 months and get ranked to admin or mod along those lines. But after that the server really changes at one point the owner loves you now he hates you. Then you get demoted for some reason that doesn't even apply to the servers rules. And banned for no reason. This really pisses me off. Owners should be mature and responsible people not people who just joke around and make people mad.

I have my own philosophy on how to run a server.
- Dedicated ops are better than protection mods.
- Don't say griefing is allowed just because you're too lazy to backup your maps.

It's not too difficult, but I think if I keep refining a set of basic rules I could make the Idealistic Set Of Server Rules™.

Somebody give this guy a medal.

I feel like that 50% of server owners think that because they have power over pretty much everything, they can cause havoc and wreck shit.

When someone promotes you to admin or mod of the sever just because you've played for a selected period of time (let alone 2 months.) he/she must be a bad owner.

Apparently, I am atypically nice for a Minecrafter, so it takes me no time at all to reach the top of a virtue-based hierarchy. The soonest I've ever become moderator was within three days of joining, and this is in the same lobby as donators who have settled in a month prior as 'Trusted' members. I did not feel like I deserved it, and actually said that to the owner. He was only further convinced.
To make matters worse, two small servers I have invested in stagnated shortly after I dropped out of them, and it was definite in one of those cases that I was the glue that held the server together!
I guess I can relate to the OP, but instead of being banned, I bring down entire servers as I leave. I should probably just keep to myself in the future.

... *Note to self, avoid flandre at ALL COSTS* I simply try to stay out of people's ways and help newbies when I get the chance, have spare resources, and feel like it.

Edit: Like, I go find un-conquered lands and settle down over there. Then move as people come along.

The Owner: /ban holycrap352 /ban mees4ge5 /ban oos33ud /ban 43dwsaua31 dey're stipid dey dont kow how to build.

This proves that most of the owners are little whinny kids.Same with the ops.

If I was opped on some server when I never even wanted to be one I would just type "/stop". Or maybe "/deop [whoever_gave_me_the_ops]" and then "/ban [that_same_guy]" and then I would use "/stop". I wouldn't want to cause any real damage, just some annoyance.

Personally I think OP's should be people who the admin knows IRL or at least they would have to be REALLY REALLY trusted people. Admins who are willing to give OP powers to just about anyone who can behave nicely two days in a row are crappy admins.
Hence already means "which is why". "Hence why" is redundant.
The truth about Minecraft. (The site is satire, by the way)

I play on a (non working x.x) server with whitelist and I admin. Actually I'm OP because one of the OPs really really trusts me :D
Everthing I use Admin for is to make day, night, self heal, self feed and weather :3 (I LOVE this small server)

I agree entirely, just giving admin powers to someone you don't know is like giving the wheel of your bus to a passenger.

To me sever owners and admins are like BF3 jet pilots, it takes practice, patience, and responsibility to maintain a smooth trip. If you don't have these well-
