Wow, talk about a blast to the past. It's secret759, if you remember. I joined this server bloody ages ago and left, well, slightly less bloody ages ago. I'm probably not going to re-join, the only reason I'm making this post is because from the sounds of it, you guys are kinda dying (and for nostalgia). So I felt like I should just give you the reason(s) why I left, for reflection and whatnot.
The main reason I left the server is it just wasn't entertaining anymore. I reached free and got guard, but then I realized that once you get there, your rather dead-ended. "alpha-guard, warden" I hear you say. Well those ranks are pretty much locked off now anyways. You only need about 7 alpha-guards and 5 wardens. Those spots are filled with dedicated players. Good job on that. I left the guards after a month, because I realized that it was a dead end (also, murder restrictions, yaknow.) So I'm standing around in free, and realize, that I don't have anything to do. The only things to buy with money are plots. The reason to get plots, besides storage, is for social reasons (Gambling, parties, ETC.) The only plots people really would do that are, the ones that have been filled by dedicated players. I guess dedicated players really is the problem, even though it isn't a bad thing. Most of the upper roles of the community are filled with well set well-known personalities, and frankly, there isn't room for anyone else. Oh, This is really just a huge block of text with me hopping from one subject to another. Better make a summary.
SUMMARY:When you reach free, the only ways to go higher require favor from the admins and a certain circle of high-position community who talk to them. Due to the limited amount of those high ranking spots, new, less dedicated people can not enter. This creates a pseudo-oligarchy, meaning new or somewhat experienced players are apt to leave.

That's a really good idea but, like the guy below you said, you can't have falls over 3 blacks tall and even if you have feather falling boots you still get that little "punch" that stops you from jumping again immediately. I do have a solution to the problem that I'll probably implement into the next map, which just teleports you back to the last checkpoint when you fail.
About that, can you make use of command blocks to teleport people or something? maybe with tripwires on the floor that activate teleportation, so its not optional.

IGN: Pixelbot_3000. 2. Your age: 15 years of age. 3.How long have you been playing the server? I have been Playing for almost a year. 4. Have you read the server, prison and guard rules? Yes, i have read them. 5. Any experience with prison genre? I have played on both this server and a different crappy server called killion for almost a year. 6. What is your time zone? My time zone is Eastern Standard Time (EST). 7.Why are you the best choice for guard? I Have been playing MC convicted for a while now and have seen many abusing guards roam the server courtyards killing innocent newbies and have also seen amazing guards who help people and play by the rules and prosecute people who dont. I would love to be part of the good guard group and police the server for spammers and disobediant jerks. I swear to obey the guard, server and prison rules and enforce them with all the power bestowed in my by the wardens. 9. What is your current rank? I am free. 10. Do you understand that we will require PROOF of your rank when/if you retire from guard? Yes, I do.
It's good, but you really need to re-read the guard rules, your missing something.
May 27, 2012You know, This anti-spam plugin really is a amazingly efficient way to get rid of the best guards...Posted in: PC Servers
The more times you do 5 4 3 2 1 jail, the more chances you have of being banned.
Its scarily efficient O.o
Current auto-spam ban list: 37lego37, secret759, jumbo76 (muted)
Edit: top page get!

same here lego they are using a new anti spam plugin, and that registers a guard "out 5 4 3 2 1" as spam.
The time is messed up aswell.

1) IGN: xGunning
2) Your age: 16
3) How long have you been playing the server? (Minimum of 3 days) Around 4 Months.
4) Have you read the Server, Prison, and Guard Rules? I have read the server, prison, and guard rules very thoroughly.
5) Any experience with the prison genre? I have been alpha guard on one server (Trapped Prison), and a Warden on another server (BrosofM Prison)
6) What is your time zone? My timezone is central standard time.
7) Why are you the best choice for guard? I Am the best choice for a guard because of my patience and maturity. I acknowledge the rules and have some tolerance. If i see someone breaking the rules, they deserve a punishment. I know many ways to fight, and how to reason with people. I make sure to follow the rules of any higher rank than me, and listen to lower ranks' complaints. I can catch anyone who is breaking the rules, in accordance with my keen eyesight. This is why i think that i would be a excellent guard on the server.
9) What is your current rank? Do you understand that we will require PROOF of your rank when/if you retire from guard?My Current Rank is Elite-Block
He also DDoS'd Killion, so there's that.
May 26, 2012Posted in: PC ServersSecret759's ban appeal(aka: why this spam blocker is annoying)
IGN: secret759 (I do seem to making a lot of apps here.)
Current Rank on server: Trainee guard <3
Reason you were banned: Spamming
Warden/alpha that banned you: Mr. anti spam plugin
Approximate time of ban: 6:45 PM EST 5/26/12
Why you deserve to be unbanned: I was not spamming. Because the antispam plugin mute, then kicks, then bans people for repeating messages over and over, it counts a guards "out" and "5 4 3 2 1" as spam. I was doing that. Also the ban says "temporarily banned for ten seconds" which is not true. Its been over a 5 minutes now.Any additonal information: Yes, In essence, I was banned for being too good of a guard.
