I am currently at work but got a second to respond to you, which I really wanted to do:
I'm not sure why the forum is being such a pain. Hopefully my sysadmin will get with me soon so that I can manage a forum I'll code out, or take from some open source, and integrate it into the wordpress I use for the website. (What I mean is that the forum right now is hosted by one of our other lovely admins, Atomizer, and not haven.dgw.no, which is my subdomain.)
Anyway, I ought not access the forum administration panel right now, but I will as soon as I get home or try to contact Atomizer to see if you he can get you processed. Expect a PM on these forums from me by around 5pm if we've not gotten back with you.
Sorry for the confusion. The above applies to anyone who may have tried to apply, by the way; we're working out the kinks, and the forum, indeed, has been a bit of a pain.
We just successfully had Public Quest II: Windmill!
Hopefully we'll get a video or screenshots of the PQ soon. It was an absolute blast, and everyone in the community contributed to the build.
We're still recruiting, everyone, and this is by far the best SMP server out there. I had the priveledge of bouncing around to some of the public ones earlier, and was amazed at just how bad they really are. I stumbled across quite a few great ones, too, though, but I fear griefers and those that slip through the cracks will destroy those communities. Haven simply weeds all those out early on and interacts on such a player-to-player basis on all builds that there really is just no way to be anti-social or a griefer. You'd all too easily be called out for it. :tongue.gif: Our community is so tight-knit and so wonderful that it really is just a blast to log on and chat in IRC, Ventrilo or in-game.
Also, we're currently working on constructing levels with objectives and the like. We have actual future-game level designers helping with the project. How cool is that? Basically as soon as redstone works more fully they will be 80% complete, but for now they are quite simple. Anyway, that's enough of a teaser about that. It's gonna be cool!
The forums ought to be fully operational now, and I hope you have no trouble getting registered on them to post your application. If you do, don't hesitate to PM or email me!
There, just made an application on your forum. Hopefully it is accepted.
EDIT: I know this is poor ediquite and whatnot, but Natu, could you please look at my application and either accept it or request for more information? I tend to get a wee bit impatiant after a while...
I am afraid your impatience is a huge character flaw, haha. Some applications can go as long as several days before I can even look at them. However, your private message, application and post here did, in fact, force me to take a look at your application, so congratulations. :tongue.gif:
I will respond to it in the application thread on the forum. Thank you for your interest in the Haven Minecraft server!
I am sorry that my constant insensive edits on this forum, as well as the PM I sent, as well as teh quickly written application, have cost me any form of acceptance. I do intend, however, to make yet another application in the following week. Until then, I will just have to make do with anotehr server.
We are still recruiting, but will not let any new members in until the authentication server is fixed up right. Apologies for any inconvenience this might cause! Please feel free to still apply, however!
We are currently transferring our forum to the subdomain I have (haven.dgw.no) from Atomizer74's server (atomicdivisions).
During this process the forum will (obviously) be down but they will rise anew like a phoenix in approximately 12 hours. (BAM, SIMILE).
Please hold your applications until then, and when we're back to full operations, post away!
Also, to everyone that has applied that I've yet to get back to you: I am still alive, and as soon as Notch gets the authentication server back up I will work at 200% efficacy (as will my New Player Experience Moderator, PaniX!) to get through all your wonderful (and not so wonderful! :Zombie:) applications.
Thanks for your continued support of Haven Minecraft!
I am going to be gone for the weekend and very busy during that time. If you have trouble applying on our forum please join the IRC and remain there for quite some time to see if someone can help you out. The best way to do this would to be getting a hold of a member, send them your application via email, and they will post it on the forum.
I know this is dreadfully complicated, but for some reason half of the people trying to apply are having trouble, so for now, since I cannot fix it before I have to leave, that is what will have to be done.
Thanks for your understand!
P.S. Joining IRC, saying "id like to joun tha srvr lol" and leaving a minute later will not only get you quickly ignored but never, ever considered to join our server. And hopefully an operator will be on to ban you, too.
