Neo. I crashed the server (Edit: Oryxian and I talked it over. This time, I went only 1,800 blocks before the server crashed. Either the griefing was putting a huge load on the server or someone else managed to get much farther first. I don't know what happened). I know you told me this was one of those "common sense" rules, but let me tell you why I did this.
Alexrod777 and Knetten got it in their heads to create a lava trap around the spawn point and replace most of the walls with furnances (which would take longer to mine out). I escaped by punching out the bottom of the fountain at the spawn point. I was chased down by knetten, he tried to trap me in a jail when I logged out to avoid being sent back to the lavatrapped spawn.
I imagine by the time the server crashed, the walls would be completely covered in lava. I imagine you'll have to rollback to fix exactly what I did (however, you would have had to have rollbacked to the same point to fix the lava trap - so letting the server go on would have made the situation much much worse), but you can always render the images in Cartographer or examine them in MCEdit.
I move that preventing players from playing (as Knetten and Axelrod777 were doing) should warrant a PERMANENT BAN.
As crashing the server *ahem* is one of those bannable things, despite the server being a "no rules" server, griefing to the extent that the game becomes LITERALLY unplayable should not be allowed.
I would love to talk to you on Skype. Send me a PM.
Either way, I wish administrative action be taken. I will trust your judgement either way.
What Dream says is true, but I was in the middle of cleaning up. There are 20 or so lava flows coming from the top of the wall of the spawn area, trying to prevent people from going out. I got some dirt and took care of about 1/3 of them before the server crashed. They apparently wanted to make a "prison" out of the spawn area, since one of the only ways out of the courtyard-like area is to go through any part they tried covering in lava. Any idiot can break out a cobblestone or dirt block under the lava, but I guess they just didn't consider that.
I'd like to request only a small rollback, as I built a lot of stuff in the time that Axel and Knetten spent griefing. The most damage they've done is spam furnaces and stairs everywhere, something easily taken care of with picks. The lava is also cleaned up easily, just a lot slower. I put a dirt block on the source lava blocks on the east side of the spawn area. I think that they think they're clever by putting the source block on top of a log, like so
It wasn't hard to figure out how to stop it instead of help spread it.
its alled greifed? i mean everything... how do people do this nowadays, things such as mccheat etc arnt even ailvable anymore? notch fixed illigal item spawning via cheats with server side inventories dident he?
Rollback Post to RevisionRollBack
come over to our awsome Aussie server! 18.104.22.168 enjoy!
I'm glad we got rid of those two, they were the biggest greifers on the server. Not raiders, mind you, that's perfectly fine in a survival server. They would just mindlessly destroy the spawn and any bases they found.
Good riddance, maybe now the spawn area will look nice.
Playing on this server has been fun since the time immerorial but there have been some issues lately, first of all the server crashes a somewhat often. Anyway, thats because its still beta so we cope with it. BIGGER BUT: Killing other players with stealth and skill has made us hackers for some reason, I'm talking about me and Minifrost. For some reason this server's policy seems to be: Someone better than you = Hacker Then there are people who are flying around and admins are just neglecting.
Finally, killing an admin roaming around resulted in admin abuse: telporting, increased melee range and so on
I'm not sure anymore is this a good server anymore, it used to be.
Its a "no rules" server.. you can be a douche and expect to be able to stick around. Buuut, well.. there isn't a rule saying that you can do whatever you want, whenever you want... sooooo...
I kicked you like three times because I don't like you.
