Current Server News: Updated to 1.3, Plugins all work, Architect voting open!
Firstly, there is no whitelist on this server! We deal with griefers severely, but we are against going Private :smile.gif:
A common misconception on the server is that we do not allow guests to build - this is not the case! Nobody on the server is allowed to build or PvP in the spawning area! Read the signs at "/spawn" and you will be a step ahead.
We are using the newest version of CraftBukkit, a wonderful server mod with several additional plugins to make the game awesome!
We are a SURVIVAL server, which means we have PVP enabled! We have an in-game currency plugin, which you can use for a ton of different things.
Griefing is almost non-existant, and the few griefers that get past are banned swiftly by our staff! 24/7 active staff on different timezones, griefers always taken care of.
Usually 40+ people online! Spiffy new thread which will be updated regularly :biggrin.gif:
If you choose to play here, welcome to our community! We have hundreds of active members who log in every day and everything here is made possible by our donators!
We usually have around 50 players in there, and there should always be an admin on the server - if not, there is definitely one in Teamspeak!
If you have an issues at all, the best place to contact us in on our Teamspeak server, or post on our forums, or to PM an admin on our forums.
A lot of of the time we are at our player cap of 50, and the server is pretty big. If you have a hard time connecting due to the server being full, you should consider donating to get a reserved slot, and you will be able to connect any time!

Jadon's SMP is a great server! Very well moderated, and the staff aren't assholes! Most regulars are friendly and offer help to people who need it. I'd highly recommend this server to anyone who likes good ol' SMP.
I highly recommend this server. It has plenty of friendly staff remembers to keep an eye on griefers and help out new players. There are people playing at all times of the day so you'll find no shortage of players to build with or conversely people to introduce to the pointy end of your sword. Just follow the rules and I'm sure you'll have plenty of fun here. At the very least pop in and take a look at spawn city and the permanent structures surrounding it.
I enjoy building only and find minecraft 'pvp' worthless but because of the intense excitement, dedicated staff, active community, zero tolerance of griefing, addition of mods such as craftbook, chestprotection and more I have found a home on this server. In fact I enjoy it so much I have donated money to it. There is a feeling you get while building and having to protect yourself that is very unique to this server and I have not found anywhere else.
At first this server may be confusing since most no whitelist servers have few admins on, few rules, and little interaction that I have seen. Read all the signs, learn the rules and this will be your next full time server.
I'm sure if you love survivor this server more than exceeds what you are looking for!
If you are someone who just enjoys building feel free to send me a hello and I would happily help you learn the ropes to protect yourself.
The players are fun and helpful, good in fights, and the admin staff.. whoa.. can't believe the quality of the admin staff. They don't give in to gimme-gimme requests (it is a survival server after all). Griefers are caught quickly, as there is almost always an admin around.
The spawn point has signs for you to find out how to get to their webpage http://www.jadon-mc.net to read the rules (there are many pages dedicated to what you can/can't do, where you can/can't build, and so on).
While there have been people who "just" bought MC, and they're welcome to the server (and many of us players will help out), realize that it might be wise to play some single player to get an idea of how to do and build things, and perhaps watch a lot of youtube for more info.
A note to you griefers--may as well just go somewhere else 'cause anything you do can be undone in a blink of an eye. And don't worry about logging off to avoid a ban. Offline griefers get banned just as easily.
Finally, what I love is when a griefer is caught, and they say they didn't do it. Since the server records everything, it's not a question of if someone did something, rather it's, "Why?"
