    To answer your question: Hell no! We do actually run Bukkit, but we only run some administrative plugins and nothing game-changing. We've spent a while running semi-vanilla servers and I think this is a lot more fun, so we are certainly staying vanilla as long as we are active :).

    Neo-- most of our activity comes from the USA, so you should fit in well. We usually have people on even at off-peak times.

    I get pissed off when people (was there a word here?) at Dictators for running things the way they do. See how that looks? Replacing one noun makes a whole world of difference.

    I'm not really sure that, in this situation, the admins of this server could be compared to dictators. That seems silly to me. But hey, it's your opinion. If you want to object to the way I run this server, I'd rather you just PM me instead of joining a dumb argument on the thread.

    Says I'm not whitelisted yet. There was a space in front of my name on the app, so if you copypasted that may have done that.

    Oh, I apologize, I forgot to add you... my bad! You're on it now. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    And for Deap, I think you misinterpreted the situation: We banned the guy who quit with disproportionate rage because we don't want ragey people coming back on and griefing or something. We laughed at him after he left for his immaturity in responding to a situation that we were about to defuse. If you don't believe me, that's fine; I have no desire to argue on the forum thread.
    Rooter is added too. You don't seem like the most mature person, no offense, but if you don't start crap then we're good.

    I retract my application, this server has terrible admins and mods.

    I'm sorry that you think that.

    Sorry for getting to all these apps kinda late.
    I think I'll reduce the sentence limit, 4-6 sentences does seem excessive, but you seem like a mature crowd so I'm accepting all of you besides pzilla. No offense, but one-sentence answers don't work anyway... you can apply again if you want.
    Very grateful for the maturity here! I warn that we do have some young members, but if you get any problems from them just tell an admin. Also, the server is mostly populated by teenage guys, for the adults who applied, so if you feel like this isn't your server then that's fine.

    It's been a great run, guys.
    However, all good things must come to an end, including this server. I no longer have the motivation, time, or funds to keep this near-dead server running. The server will shut down on June 14th. I want to thank my dedicated staff and players for their fantastic work. Before the 14th, I will put the current map up for download.

    It's not necessarily the end, though. I will be gone for a good amount of the summer, but afterwards I wouldn't mind putting time into a new project. PM me your email if you want to be put on my email list, which I will use to keep folks updated on my next server. I'll also willingly share my Skype and Steam.

    Thank you all so much for making this server great from its opening until its closing.

    It's been a great run.

    Your Admin,
    Kisume

    EDIT: Here's the map download. You need WinRAR to open the file. https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B0wFE1Zg6CKEVlRLSURzWmdGY1U/edit



    -------------------

    We, the people of Rich, Creamy Vanilla Bean Craft (RCVBC), love Minecraft. While plugins and mods can be plenty fun, the core of Minecraft - the simple vanilla - is classic and enjoyable. On RCVBC, we run no game-changing plugins and teleportation is not available. We encourage building in towns for a sense of community and for protection. We stand out among the plugin-ridden and PVP servers dominating today’s SMP scene by offering a close-knit and friendly community alongside vanilla, town-based building.

    Also, we pride ourselves in our excellent staff team. Just like regular players, all of our builds are done in survival and we will never spawn items for ourselves or anyone else. The admins have been working together on community servers for over a year, starting in December 2011 with Society Rising. We hope that you will enjoy this server as much as we do!

    The server is based in Chicago, but our members come from all over the world!

    Rules (follow dem):



    1. Golden rule: don’t be a ****, asswipe, jerk, or generally unkind individual. Apply common sense, be mature, and respect others.
    2. Don’t grief. Seriously, just… don’t.
    3. No stealing. There's no Lockette or LWC, but that doesn't mean you can rob people. We can track this, guys. Also, don't "borrow" valuables without asking first, it will be treated as stealing.
    4. Respect the staff and listen to what they say—they know what they’re doing! Tell an admin if you think a staff member is being abusive.
    5. Cheats/hacks of any kind will get you banned.
    6. Ask permission before using any outside mod that may give an unfair advantage. X-Ray, Smart Moving, and similar mods are forbidden. Rei's Minimap is okay; ask before using anything else please!
    7. Try not to build ugly things (ex. cobble boxes, 1x1 towers) or destroy the landscape (ex. chopping down entire forests). Also, if you go logging, please cut down the whole tree; I don't care how big it is.
    8. USE COMMON SENSE WITH PVP. If someone has not agreed to PvP you do not attack without a very good reason.
    9. Have a sense of humor, but don't make excessively offensive jokes (AKA don’t be a ****).
    10. Respect people's property and national parks. Don't kill people's personal livestock and follow posted signs (if they’re reasonable).
    11. NO IRON GOLEM FARMS. They're cheaty and strain the small server. Other mob grinders are fine.
    Have fun!

    Staff:
    Administrators:
    Kisume (AKA Jesus)
    superdupernova (Probably a serial killer)

    Moderators:
    Blazerboy123 (Made of 99% REAL rainbows!)
    Giffca (Actually the Governor of North Dakota)
    Piemane (Pootin)
    elite98tiger (Made of 98% REAL tigers!)

    Current Towns:

    Hemlock Bay
    Although it hosts the spawn building, Hemlock Bay has remained a quiet forest town. Named for the harbor that it borders, Hemlock Bay covers a fairly large area from the interior along the bay out to the edge of the open ocean. Residents here benefit from good amounts of land, some protection from mobs, and a calm life. Major attractions include the ice rink, a large windmill, and the small downtown district.


    Icarus
    Built a short boat ride/nether trip away from spawn, the city of Icarus has quickly grown to be the largest town in population, size, and activity. In a sharp contrast from Hemlock Bay, Icarus is divided up into plots and is protected by a large wall. The city also closes at nighttime, so mobs are a rare sight. Most of the world’s smaller towns are built near Icarus, so it is a major center of travel, population, and business. Major attractions include the Spleef arena, Giffca’s manor, and numerous stores.

    Donations:
    The server runs primarily on donations, so please donate! ALL proceeds go toward server upkeep; I make no profit from your donations. Donating will get you a colored name in-game, depending on how much you donated, so your greatness can be recognized. You also get a mention on a wall of donators in our spawn town, plus more benefits! Heck yeah!

    Donating $5 or more gets you:
    A teal name in-game! Finally, your name can be the color of the Sargasso Sea!
    Two (2) heads (players or mobs) as items! You get to choose the heads! Exciting!

    Donating $10 or more gets you:
    A green name in-game! If you like limes, then this may be the tier for you!
    Three (3) heads (players or mobs) as items! You can still choose the heads!

    Donating $15 or more gets you:
    A purple name in-game! Purple is my favorite color, so you know it's good.
    Four (4) heads (players or mobs) as items! If you want to reenact Notch and Jeb kissing, you totally can, because you choose the heads!

    Now, if you want to donate even more...
    First, I love you.
    For each additional $5 past $15, you will get another head of your choice! The name color is usually purple, like for the $15 folks, but if you want another color we can work it out.

    Donations are non-refundable. Again, all the money goes towards the server, so we greatly appreciate your contributions!

    posted a message on Chronometer - A time based serious roleplay
    OOC:



    Minecraft Username: Kisume
    Previous roleplay experience: I play a lot of D&D. Also, I’ve RP’d on a couple of servers before, most recently The Illiac Isle, and before that on my own short-lived RP server.
    Previous bans: I got banned once by an abusive admin after I finally stood up to him after months of being a moderator under him… long story.
    How old are you?: 16
    What is your favorite rule and why is it your favorite rule?: I actually really like rule 5. Even with fairly little RP experience in Minecraft, I’ve seen enough stupid crap to last a lifetime. Gotta love those dark hood red eyes orphan characters!
    Why should we trust you on the server?: I’m an experienced Minecraft player and I love to RP.
    What do you have to offer?: Not to seem conceited, but I think my roleplaying is decent enough. Also, I will try to be very active.
    And why do you want to join?: Again, I love RP and this server looks like a great one.



    IC:

    Character Name: Augustus R. Clarke (Goes by Clarke)
    Character Gender: Male
    Character Age: 41
    Character Picture: I’ll just describe it…
    Character Physical Description: Neat brown hair, usually covered by a hat. Bushy moustache, but no other facial hair. Dresses plainly. About 6 feet tall and average weight. Overall, a fairly inconspicuous individual.
    Character Mental Disabilities: Some level of PTSD.
    Character Physical Disabilities: Missing two toes on his right foot, so he limps a bit. Nothing else of note.
    Character Temporary Disabilities: None
    Character Desires/Wants: Clarke wishes to start a new life and put his leadership skills to good use.
    Character Fears/Nightmares: Returning to his home town; severely cold weather; war.
    Character Personality: Usually withdrawn, but friendly enough. He generally does not start conversations and can be nervous with new people, especially after living in exile. Surprisingly, he is able to speak to crowds (being an old leader) and is usually considered likable.
    Character Family: Karin Clarke (mother), Edwin Clarke (father, deceased), Nathaniel Clarke (brother), Aaron Clarke (brother), Nina Clarke (sister, deceased)
    Character Backstory: Clarke was born in a village in the city-state of Kannea. The government of Kannea was an oppressive and militaristic monarchy, and Clarke spent his childhood in poverty. He had seven younger siblings, but only three of them survived to adulthood due to the poor conditions in his home. Like all other young adults in Kannea, Clarke was drafted into the military at age 18. As the years progressed, he rose through the ranks of the military and became a general.
    Many people had poor living conditions in Kannea. Naturally, a rebellion began to take shape, and started launching attacks on government forces in the year 556, when Clarke was 30 years old. Under the iron fist of the High General and the king, he was forced to authorize massacres to defeat the rebellion and, for the first time, became uneasy about fighting. He also suffered from frostbite during a wintertime siege and was permanently disfigured, losing two toes. The war dragged on through 558. In the winter of that year, some unsuspecting government soldiers ransacked Clarke’s village while he was visiting his family, not knowing of his presence there. Although Clarke escaped relatively unscathed, his sister and his father were killed. One of his brothers was severely injured and is now unable to speak. After witnessing this brutal attack, Clarke killed several of the attackers and deserted his post in the military, joining with the rebels. Thanks to his leadership, the rebels quickly made gains in the war and successfully took over the country in early 559.
    For two years, Clarke served as president of Kannea. However, his PTSD began to take effect and he began experiencing flashbacks of the battles he’s participated in, as well as the attack on his family. He resigned from his position in shame. He briefly lived with his small family before deciding to leave his country and find a place where no one knew his name; a place where he could escape his past.
    Clarke has lived a nomadic life for several years now. He is now searching for a place to permanently settle and start a new life.
    Character Profession: Former general
    Character Skills: Great wilderness survival skills, thanks to his time in the wild. He is also a fairly skilled leader when not suffering from flashbacks.
    Character Birthday: 1/12/526
