    Although we had built up a great amount of potential and were making substantial progress, this project has come to an end.

    We had difficulties obtaining a server host and adequate funding, which is one of the largest problems for any start-up, public server. Unfortunately, we fell victim to its difficulties and I have declared the project dead.

    I would have loved to continued the server with all of you taking so much interest. All organizers gained valuable experience from the project and will now be able to go on and apply that experience to any new endeavors they may engage in!

    For those of you who are still interested in forming this server with us (we are very close to having the final thing online!), I would strongly recommend that you join our forum at phoenixmc.tk and participate in discussions, to further help develop the community and have a say in how you would like the server to be!

    Thank you to all of those who have taken an interest and contributed. We have made good progress and are nearing the final server!

    K. Will do. Since this is all to boost our community I'll be sure to have people suggest dungeons and events and stuffs. I'd rather have the community suggest things for me to do then me having to think out everything and do something the community might not like. Anyways, let me know if anything happens, alright?


    Great, thanks! I'll keep you posted.

    K. Glad I'm wanted here. :smile.gif: Some server admins tend to completely ignore suggestions. They're bias on how they want the server that they aren't willing to be open to new ideas.
    Anyways, being an event coordinator sounds like a lot of fun. I'll try to be on as much as possible, making the dungeons is gonna be awesome. I need the IP in order to get onto the server. I feel I could handle that, it's not too much trouble. Even if he does come on, we can have 2 event coordinators, he can just help me out with the stuff and I'll make any suggestions he has. So uhm. Hope to talk to you soon.


    I will talk with Zerodelocke. Meanwhile I would suggest joining our setup forum at phoenixmc.tk, where you can throw out some ideas and have the other community members give you feedback/recommendations.

    Hey there! I'm currently in the market for a new server in which to dwell. The last bunch have been... Let downs. I like your focus on community! Sounds like a fun time! I want in! I've spent a lot of time moderating the last server i played on. Frankly, it kicked ass, and is something I'd like to help recreate in part. Hope to hear from you! I'll be watching for a response! If possible, I'd love to be able to talk to you one on one, I've got a few questions!


    Great! Welcome, I will private message you.

    You really don't need to arrange things, it doesn't matter too much. I guess you could do a Trade Town or something where all the shops are, the Town Square, where your community can build houses, and the other stuff. However, when the person spawns in a spawn building, put a sign at the entrance saying "Red path leads outside of town" and put a single line of red wool leading to the exit of the town. People can get distracted, see a really cool building, and end up hopping around town and suddenly realizing they can't find the red path. Of course, /spawn is always an option.
    I could be a good event coordinator. I don't see the issue in having two event coordinaters. I have some good ideas involving dungeons as well, and I've done PvP so long that arenas should be cake to make. Planning events doesn't take long, so you wouldn't even have to be that active.
    Disabling PvP in large areas is a good idea. Obviously you don't want someone to spawn camp you.
    OH. And another important thing that is slightly obvious. Don't make instant /spawn or /home commands. Having some combat log or combat teleport is extremely aggravating.


    Even more great ideas!

    If you are interested in joining us, I would be more than happy to have you in our community! In fact, I haven't heard back from our event coordinator in a couple weeks, so that means that we currently have nobody in charge of our event-planning. If that is a role that you feel you could handle and enjoy, then I would be very happy with you being an event coordinator. Thank you for your interest, you have already proven to be very valuable, so it would be great to have you as a part of our community!

    Gah. What a great idea. Asking forum members to help you build up a server. So many servers mess up and just make it their way, and screw their community over.
    Anyways, there are two things I like, PvP and being well known. I would recommend ...


    Thanks for all of the suggestions, they are very helpful.

    PvP is going to be disabled among the populated areas (towns, popular roads, etc.). I have set up the WorldGuard plugin, so we can define regions and allow or deny PvP.

    We had an event coordinator a while ago, but I'm not sure if he is still active or interested, otherwise he would have taken care of planning tournaments and dungeon raids, etc.

    You make a good point about the spawn town; it needs to be simple and helpful to new users rather than helping them get lost and overwhelmed. The plots would most likely be towards the outer part of the spawn town, and all of the essential buildings (help center, warp station, etc.) would be central, where you would spawn.

    Again, thanks for all of the ideas!

    ZeroDelocke is currently looking into server hosting. If you've been checking the thread here looking for updates, we have been discussing everything at phoenixmc.tk.

    So I'm not sure if anyone still checks this, but I can't get on the other forums, or the server. Something wrong?

    I was at a friend's house last night. I couldn't join for a while either, same with the forums. Today when I got home, everything seemed to be working, so I'm guessing that my internet went down at home for a while.

    Hello, first let me say that I'm still fairly new to Minecraft- having only been playing for the last two months or so- and I'm looking for a good community to join. I'm still getting used to everything, but I'd love to be a part of your community. Btw, my IGN is Zeirith

    Welcome!

    This thread will most likely die out when the server is started, because this thread concerns only the starting of the server. Anyone who is interested in further discussion about the server can find it at the small forum we have set up at phoenixmc.tk

    hi ravroid,
    i am interested in what you just said. I would love to be a part in a community of a server wich has so much attention to the feel and the socialising of the server. I would realy like to. I have expiriences with servers that are soooo bad that the comunity just sit down and wach while griefers are burning down the whole place.
    I have also been on servers that are so frendly that evryone including the admins knows each other. poland people, American, Fenchmen and Israel people are working together as one single family. I hope this server will be just as good as that ones and i hope that my help will help ;p

    p.s. is there already an IP?

    Welcome to you too, glad to hear that you are also interested in the same idea. The test server IP is 76.85.150.170, although it is still being setup so it is not fully functional.

    Kiiiickass. Really lookin' forward to it. xP Any estimation on when it'll be up?


    Hopefully within the week. School has been consuming the majority of my time, but fortunately fall break starts Thursday for me. I will finalize Permissions so people can do things on the server while the rest of the setup is completed.

    Well stellar blastin' captain. xP I went to the VoxelBox and looked around some others...but I didn't like the feel of it. People there weren't entirely friendly. I'm kinda hoping the fact that this one is starting out fresh and all will mean a more talkative happy environment. :biggrin.gif:
    Also...do we have to build an amazing thing to get in? o.O That's what bugged me a bit. I wanna build me my little house, maybe help people with their stuff if I can, go on some little adventures, not be required to build a monument of unimaginable magnificent epicness just to have a chance at getting in.
    I went onto the test server...and no one was around. So I left. XD
    Anyway, I registered at the pheonix site, so I'll just look into it probably daily. Can't wait for the place to start up. :biggrin.gif:

    You don't have to build anything to get in! There will be group building projects to take care of those big monuments, etc., which you can participate in if you feel like it. The server is about just having fun and being apart of a community. There's nothing more to it.

    And thanks for registering on the other forums. That is where I will be posting the majority of updates and information about the server.
