    1. My minecraft username is and always will be, jjemerald.


    2. I would like to join your community because, I feel as though this is one of the only gulliver mod communities left.

    I enjoy the gullivers mod and I hope to meet other people who enjoy it as well on this server. (Sorry about the run-on's, it's 4 AM)

    this seems like a nice server to me, I hope I don't miss out on this opportunity.


    3. One of the things that would help me fit in is my personality, I always seem to fit in server communities just right. I've been

    on pixelspark pixelmon for about 2 years now, that has pushed me to meet a lot of people and enjoy my life as a whole even better.

    I can be a skilled builder, I enjoy doing small builds with detail.


    (4.)1. I recently got a switch on launch (it's amazing!)


    I'm a well known helper on the pixelspark server I had mentioned.


    I have a pikachu onesie that I continue to wear around my house.


    I have the best girlfriend ever.


    I have been playing single player gulliver since 2013.


    5. please refrain from the act of greifing or vandalism on private property, as well as wholesale destruction of public property.


    6. Cheese :3


    ...Well, first things first: I strongly suggest you don't fill out a whitelist application at 4am.

    Now onto the actual application, itself :P

    As for your answer to question 2... I always look for a reason that doesn't relate to the Gulliver mod, as that suggests you've actually watched some of our server videos and have some idea of what you're getting into beyond the Gulliver mod aspects of this server. Until something of that sort is added I'll have to say this section isn't quite satisfactory.

    In this next answer, you mention your personality helps you fit in... but you kind of gloss over what your personality is. Seems a tad important to try summarizing, don't you think? :P

    As for your random facts...
    -What made you want to get a Nintendo Switch, all things considered?

    -Please find a fact that does not relate to Minecraft

    -Is there a reason you could attribute to this behavior? Rather, why do you like Pikachu so much, do you think?

    -...Again, is there a reason?

    -Again, please find a fact that does not relate to Minecraft, as fascinating as that is.

    Overall, for your facts in particular, note my questions: when you replace those facts with proper random facts, keep that idea in mind. Why you like/do something is more important than what you like/do.

    Anyway, your answers to questions five and six are all good.

    But, overall, I can't whitelist you with your application in its current state. It's very fixable, however, if you follow this review. Just modify as I've asked and repost the application when you're ready (hopefully with a careful review of your own when it's not incredibly early in the morning. ^^ )

    Good luck!

    Thank you, but when I try to join it says Failed to login: Bad Login.


    I've tried many different solutions but none work.

    What do I do??


    Well, that error commonly comes from using the latest Minecraft launcher. I suggest you use an older version (they can be nabbed from here). ^^

    2. The reason I would like to join the server is because I really like the Gulliver Mod. I think it adds nice perspective to the game and I would really like to play it with others. This is the Gulliver server I find being the biggest and friendliest (mostly judging by the trailer). It also seems to be the server that has the nicest community, and I would really want to be a part of that community too! :D


    3. Well first off, my building skills are quite good (at times :P) and I'm pretty friendly, for the most part. I am usually a very happy person and I'm not afraid to help others. I believe I will be on the server for a long time if it's as good as I have seen. I think these skills an traits will help raise the mood of the server and help contribute to the overall atmosphere.


    4. I have an apple tree plant named Xavier. (It's not weird to name your plants, is it?)


    Another strange fact is, I have a Pringles tube collection of 32 tubes. Everyone has their own hobby :P.


    I like reading SCP articles and it's what I mostly do in my spare time. SCP-096 is my favourite one.


    For some reason I am really good at breaking headphone cables. I have broken about 8 different ones and recently a whole headset.


    I am very interested about space and the unexplored. I find space scary and amazing and would gladly accept a one way mission into space.


    5. 6.
    Please refrain from the act of griefing or vandalism on private property, as well as wholesale
    destruction of public property.


    6. It's Cheese. Gud stuff.


    Ey! Sorry it's been a couple of days. This weekend has been a tad hectic. For me, at least, anywho.

    Anyway, let's get to it!

    Your reason to join looks pretty sound! I would like to add, though, that we're hardly the Gulliver server, or at least the only one. Granted, I suppose this mod's so old there aren't many public servers hosting it, these days. ^^;

    Your next answer is realistic, and I can respect that. There's nothing particularly great here, I'll admit, but it works.

    Your random facts all look great, though! Both just as a matter of getting you applied and it's all very interesting. Wouldn't say naming a plant is weird, either, for the record :P

    Your answers to 5. and 6. also look solid!

    Overall, your application seems to check out! You're clear for a whitelist, and I believe I've gotten that sorted out. Please let me know if you can't join due to whitelisting reasons. ^^;

    Hope to see you around server-side!

    1) What is your Minecraft username (or "IGN")?

    Kabloobloo


    2) Please explain why you would like to join the Server.


    Im a fan of the gulliver mod the fact you can resize yourself however and whenever you whould like and i think playing it on a server with other players will be fun with the mod and also it can make survival way easier or harder depending on your size


    At smallest size: It can make survival way harder but a great thing about it is the mechanics with different items

    At biggest size: It is way easier to survive one of the reasons is that you can kill by walking over players and mobs


    3) Please explain how your talents, skills, experience, personality traits, and aspirations can help contribute positively to our server.


    If its helpful maybe i can help build a player's house if they want me to and i maybe able to help them, so hopefully i can help build things with or for players and i might be able to help with other things that players need help on like mining or any other thing that 2 players can do together to speed whatever it is up



    4) Please list five random facts about yourself that can help differentiate you from other players.


    1. I can make animations and post them to youtube for people to watch

    2. I am able to make jokes alot, Though i dont really say them in the game since im mostly quiet

    3. I have a fear of elevators in real life due to getting stuck in one once

    4. I am half dutch in real life since i have a parent from holand and one from the contry im in

    5. Im a fan of alot of other games than minecraft, That doesnt mean im not a fan of minecraft though


    5) To ensure you understand your rights and responsibilities on our server, please read the Novice's Creed, and write down one right or responsibility that you enjoy the most.


    You have the right to report, with evidence, the
    overuse
    of inappropriate language or mature
    content, if it is making you, a neighbor, a Veteran player, or another Novice player uncomfortable.

    6) And finally, to confirm that you read the Big Sister Server Quick Guide please write down the name of the official server currency.

    Cheese

    Well, it seems you haven't quite got the hang of things yet.

    Your answer to question two is better, but it's still focused solely on the fact we use the Gulliver mod. As Cia said, we are not the only ones. Thus, to show that you'll actually stay on our server, you need to cite more reasons to stay (i.e., the community).

    Your next answer is in the same vein. Longer, but... it's not different. You didn't fix half the things Cia asked you to, which is really, really not looking good for you already.

    Your random facts are still surprisingly good.

    Your answer to question five is good, now. Thank you for finally quoting (not paraphrasing or summarizing) a right :P

    And you got our currency right.

    So, needless to say, your app still needs a surprising amount of work, even if areas are getting better. You seem to have a really hard time reading (first missing our word count minimums, then missing half of what Cia asked you to fix) so make sure you take a nice, long time working on this one and making sure your next application is perfect.

    Because if you miss anything I or Cia addressed, you're probably not server material. There's literally no reasonable excuse to do so, considering you have all the time in the world to work on your whitelist application. Rushing it will just send you rushing back out the door, trust me.

    2)I would like to join your server because it look really cool from the trailer that you made.( srsly that trailer was really cool) Also I do not swear much and I really like the idea of the shrinking and growing.


    3)I am a moderate builder. I can build some great looking things that can be quite impressive and I can make some boring stuff, fun.


    4)

    • I like pie (I think)
    • I am a amazing minecraft parkourer ( do the jumping jacks)
    • I spend a lot of time in minecraft (I mean a lot)
    • I am quite popular in school (well, i think I am)
    • I also like apple (hehe i don’t even know)

    5) "Please refrain from asking players and Staff for frequent favours and gifts – self­-sufficiency and independence are virtues." I love this responsibility because it can be used in real life, too. Or at least, the independence part. It's an important life lesson.

    6) Cheese ( Cheese are nice but I still like apples)


    Hey, sorry it took so long to get to you! Finals are kind of eating up most of my time, so I've been fairly busy, lately.

    Anyway, let's get to straight to the point. Besides mentioning the fact that you have managed to wait this long without complaining, which is a plus in and of itself.

    Your reason to join is... well, too short. We explicitly have it listed that there is a word minimum and you haven't met it, unfortunately. The reason itself is also fairly vague. What exactly was in the trailer that made it cool? Why do you think it made it cool? Also, what does not swearing much have to do with a reason to join? Don't you think that belongs in the next section?

    Moving on to that, your next answer is even shorter... even though it has the same word minimum to pass. The content itself is also limited to just your building ability rather than your past experiences and some admittance about your own personality. This ought to help you reach the minimum fairly easily.

    As for your random facts, I'll address them in turn.
    1. Short. (Why do you like pie? Rather, why do you only think you like pie? What kinds of pie, even?)
    2. Not random, it's about Minecraft. (And could go in one of your earlier answers)
    3. Not random, it's about Minecraft. (And could go in one of your earlier answers)
    4. A little short. (Why do you only think you're popular?)
    5. Short. (Do you only like singular apples, not multiple apples in one sitting? Why are you chuckling? Why don't you even know?)

    Wow, this next answer is actually solid. Good job!

    Also a solid answer following it. And you clarified one of my numerous apple-related questions.

    I'm afraid that, overall, this falls far below our standards. I'm saying you waited this long only to get this answer... but to be fair, if you actually read and understood our application rules and spent all this time writing/editing this instead of just waiting (because all that I'm telling you is up there and publicly available, believe it or not) this wouldn't have happened. As it is, you're going to have to edit almost your entire application. Use my review as a guideline. Once that is done, you can make a new post to submit your new application.

    If, however, you've decided this is entirely not your fault, I'm being too harsh, and you want to leave... then, well, okay.

    Good luck, whichever path you take!

    2) So you like Gulliver's Travels. And you like the Gulliver Mod. Now what do you like about our server besides that?

    3) Well, this is... interesting. Your length is good, content is... well, what needs to be there is there. There's a whole lot of stuff that is just... messy. First of all, your persistent ideas of demon-ness and slavery are, if not troublesome, irritating at best to read. I realize the vast majority of it is a joke, but by the end of this answer it's over-played.

    So besides that, it checks out.

    4) Your first three random facts are great, constant inferences to your apparent demonic nature aside. However, 'coder' is not, in fact, self-explanatory. At all. What languages are you good with? Do you do games, or software in general? Why are you interested in code, assuming we're even talking computer code here?
    Also, proclaiming you'll be active on our server is not, in fact, a random fact. That belongs in 3).


    Let's see how these compare...
    Quote from Chardinok»

    Lets do this.


    1) What is your Minecraft username (or "IGN")?


    Greetings, I am Chardinok, King of the Blood Demons that dwell in the Underworld.


    2) Please explain why you would like to join the Server.


    First of all, Gulliver's Travels is my favorite book and never will stop being it. I love every aspect of the book. I mean, imagine going shipwrecked on an unknown island full of tiny people! Second of all, it took me not too long to find the Gulliver's mod. It became my favorate mod instantly. I craved a server for years, and found a popular one, this one in particular. I couldnt get the courage to apply then, so I had to wait. A very long time. When I say a very long time, I mean another year. I am finally making this application for this wonderful server. Cant wait to be a Big Sister Server Player! What I like about your server is all the towns, and houses you have. I will pick a regular sized house, with a regular sized demon. I also love the games you have in store. Battleship. Chess/Checkers. Golf. More! I can't wait!


    I can't hide my excitement!

    3) Please explain how your talents, skills, experience, personality traits, and aspirations can help contribute positively to our server.

    I may be deemed a blood-thirsty demon on the internet, but in real life, I am a young jolly person who enjoys to play Minecraft regularly. I like to make people laugh, and succeed most of the time. I will crack a bad or good joke every now and then, and love hearing people in chat go threather (I made that word myself! Its the three version of either) "omg wot", or "xD" or "lolololol". You have also asked me if I was still 38. In fact, I am! Thank you for the questions. I also enjoy seeing smiles and happy faces. That isn't regular for a demon, but, whaddya gunna do? I am a nice person and would love to be a regular sized player on your server. Regular sized, cause that was what size Gulliver was. I want to see a mix of tiny people (oh so cutie) or a mix of giants (oh not so cutie). When I play Minecraft, I am skilled in both building and redstone. If you ever need help with commands, I am at your service (ITS FREEEEE!). And, Im on Minecraft a lot so be prepared to see my beautiful face almost every day. I also have a confession to make. I have lost trust to be whitelisted, because I have been insulting your staff members, creating bad whitelist applications, and other things. I really hope you will accept my apology and hope I get to see the above. If you do accept my apology, I will be your eternal slave. If you don't, well...


    4) Please list five random facts about yourself that can help differentiate you from other players.


    - Gaming: Games. Frisbee or Mario, I love to play outside and inside. Why, excerSIZE (im so sorry) is great! Its fun and healthy! Just like broccoli is delicous and healthy! (Im one of those people.)


    - Pets: Another demon would kick a puppy. I wouldn't. This is self explanatory, but I'll tell some secrets. My soul animal is a pig and my dream pet is a lizard. I've done it, the words are out.


    - Comedic: I am a great comedian. I can make people laugh as my popularity GROWS. Im great at joking. I can cut even the SMALLEST thing in SIZE as a joke. I love joking. (Im sorry.)


    - Coder: Ahh, coding. My favorite thing to do in my free time. My favorite types of coding are, Java, and Lua. I can give an example of some lua code here.


    print("Hey. Hay is for horses.")


    In the command bar, it would say, Hey. Hay is for horses. ;^)


    Coding is most of my life. It is very interesting to test out the creations you can make with code. The possibilities are endless. Literally. I code games, mostly. In fact, I have maked my own Minecraft mod! Not everyone can do that. Look up minecraft demonized in your search browser, and there. (Sorry if this is self advertising, I just need to prove i have actually done it.)

    - Food: Im great at cooking. I can make waffles, cereal, and more breakfast foods. Thats pretty much all I can make. Breakfast foods. Yep. And sandwiches. Thats it. Most of the time I burn foods. Never trust me to make a omelet for you. You may just get a waffle.


    Even though it said five facts, I decided to give it a little more effort, and make it SIX facts. (If you give me an error for this, I don't care, its an easy fix.)


    - Marvel: I love Marvel superheroes. My favorite being ant-man (I predict you know why.)


    5) To ensure you understand your rights and responsibilities on our server, please read the Novice's Creed, and write down one right or responsibility that you enjoy the most.


    20. With good behaviour, you have the right to one­time introductory bread and cheese.


    I copied the layout from another application above. I like cheese too :3


    6) And finally, to confirm that you read the Big Sister Server Quick Guide please write down the name of the official server currency.


    Only the greatest currency that could ever exist: Cheese. <--- Told you i'm a comedian.


    Lets hope this checks out.


    2) Okay, minigames and stuff. That works. ^^

    3) ...Well, I thought it was a little obvious that I didn't want to see hide nor hair of mentions of demon-ness or slavery here, but it seems like that didn't get through to you. Somehow. I mean, the first thing where you explain you're normal rather than a self-proclaimed demon is fine, but everything after that point would be nice if it went.

    4) ...Here, though, you actually did very well. Your extended and new facts are both good, even if the sixth is a tad short. Given it's a bonus fact, though, I don't think that's a problem.

    Overall... you're very, very close. I guess I can understand why you didn't pick up on my critique on your third answer and should've made my own desire for that to be edited clear, though. So... in the end... I'm going to add you to the whitelist.

    With a dose of caution, however. I'd really prefer it if you cut it out with your demon act, as harmless and perhaps funny as you seem to think it is. I just find it plain irritating, and others may take offense at it. It's unlikely, but to avoid needless conflict like that you may want to start thinking of a less... frankly, evil persona to adopt while on the server.

    Besides that, though, you... actually don't seem like a bad sort, even if it took you a while to get to this point. Welcome aboard.

    Now please let me in.


    Alright, let's get started on you peeps.

    1) Welcome to the Overworld.

    2) So you like Gulliver's Travels. And you like the Gulliver Mod. Now what do you like about our server besides that?

    3) Well, this is... interesting. Your length is good, content is... well, what needs to be there is there. There's a whole lot of stuff that is just... messy. First of all, your persistent ideas of demon-ness and slavery are, if not troublesome, irritating at best to read. I realize the vast majority of it is a joke, but by the end of this answer it's over-played.

    5) Well, that checks out.

    6) This checks out, too. Very funny.

    Overall, no, you're not quite whitelist material. You're dogged, though, I'll give you that. So, before you run off and come back to bump right back into the same walls you have, please read through my review, which I have written as tersely as possible to hopefully get my points across. If you manage that, you should be good to go on your next try.

    Good luck.

    2) Please explain why you would like to join the Server.

    I first found out about the gulliver mod when my brother showed me a mod showcase of it that was made by my favorite youtuber, TheDiamondMinecart. After a little while, I got very interested in the mod, and I played with it almost every day. I eventually found out about The Big Sister Server, and when I looked at the dynamic map, I fell in love with all the towns that people have worked together to make and I really want to be a part of that.


    3) Please explain how your talents, skills, experience, personality traits, and aspirations can help contribute positively to our server.

    I am not trying to brag, but I have to say I am really good at decorative design. I also love building, and I specialize in building underground and I love making treehouses. I am also really good with mods, and I almost never play vanilla minecraft unless I am playing on a mini game server, or if I am testing a new minecraft update. I also LOVE minecraft roleplays, and I am very serious about them, too.

    4) Please list five random facts about yourself that can help differentiate you from other players.


    • I am a huge anime fan. My favorites being Fairy Tail, One Piece, and Naruto.
    • If there is anything I like more than anime, it probably has to do with Marvel Comics. (My favorite super hero being Spider Man.)
    • I am a VERY serious gamer! >D
    • I have my own YouTube channel, and I have a lot of video and editing software.
    • Even though I suck at it, I love to draw.

    5) To ensure you understand your rights and responsibilities on our server, please read the Novice's Creed, and write down one right or responsibility that you enjoy the most.


    My favorite right is:

    You have the right to take the contents of any chest predesignated as a Donation Bin, such as the Spawnington Villager Church donation bins at the global spawn point.


    6) And finally, to confirm that you read the Big Sister Server Quick Guide please write down the name of the official server currency.

    The name of the official server currency is CHEESE!!!!



    Alright, next!

    I've gotta say, your whitelist app's gotta be the prettiest thing I've seen in a while. Brownie points for that. ^^

    1) Straight to the point. Thanks for not risking confusion. ^^

    2) A love for the mod and our aesthetic. I hope Chardinok's taking notes, because this is good to go in terms of length and content.

    3) I'm tempted to poke fun at your #humblebrag, but overall this section is pretty good. However, there's little on your personality or past examples of it besides you being a serious RPer (which I can appreciate :P ). Add that, and this section will then be all good.

    4) Ah, here you stumble a little again. Your third and fifth facts could use more content, and... well, it'd be nice to have the link to your youtube channel. Both to give you more publicity, perhaps, but also to check what kind of videos you upload. We just like to be sure accounts aren't loaded with griefing videos (you'd be surprised how many people try to sneak those by us...), really, and it helps get a better feel for your character. ^^

    5) Clear! (Though a number would be nice :V )

    6) There should be three exclamation marks in there. Jeez. (In case it isn't obvious: it's a joke :P )

    Okay, overall, you've got a pretty solid app. It looks pretty, most of the content is pretty, there's just a couple of potholes. Some facts are a tad short or lacking in vital content which I've already covered, and we could use a better feel for your personality (though after reading through this whole thing, I don't doubt it's the kind we'll like on the server). Besides that, I just dropped some half-joking nitpicks that'll make your application even better than it is.

    Just fix those little things, and you'll be clear for a whitelist. ^^

    Quote from BlockBust22»

    1. My name is BlockBust22.

    2. I would like to join this server because I sometimes get lonely in singleplayer. I can't find anyone to play with me, because I have no friends that play minecraft.

    3. I would like to have a companion where I can sit on their shoulder, also I would like to build a tiny house while I am there. And another thing I would like to do is help other players build their home. Because I just like to help around.

    4. Random Facts:

    -In my spare time, I like to build.

    -I would rather be tiny or big in the mod.

    -I would like to have someone's shoulder to sit on.

    -I build pixel art.

    -I draw animations on a daily basis.


    5. "You are a person of small power, but grand ambition, and immeasurable potential. Yet you

    know you are currently a guest in a strange house, unknown by most or all its inhabitants. You are wise to
    proceed with caution, as your actions will be tracked, your words held against you, your every moment
    scrutinized. Just as you are unsure of what challenges and dangers lie ahead, so too will we be unsure of
    exactly what kind of person you are. After all that effort and hospitality, will you be a new good friend for
    us, and a noble protector to the server that is so dear to us? Or will you be seduced by the dark arts of
    griefery, and betray our trust in the most callous manner possible?"

    6. Cheese is the official server currency.

    If I didn't get approved, just let me know, if I did, just let me know.



    Well, tl;dr? You're not getting approved just yet. ntl;dr? You've got more than one shot at this, so assuming you're still reading, I'll get on with the review.

    1) Nice to meetcha.

    2) So... you don't know what the Gulliver Mod is or like it, don't know what our forums, community, or server is like, don't know anything about us, and so can't name anything you like about our server? Ouch. Not the best introduction you could give us, mate, especially since that's blatantly asked.

    3) This just needs... a whole lot more to it. It's just a skeleton of what it could be, really.

    4)
    a ) too short
    b ) too short
    c ) too short
    d ) too short
    e ) too short.

    Seriously, your whole application's more bone than meat: you've got what you need, but you can't leave this thing a sketch: color it!

    5) This... isn't a Right nor a Responsibility. You may want to re-read the Creed. Rather, you may want to read it in the first place.

    6) Well, you got that much. Congrats! I guess...

    So... overall, this was all but a total flop. If you wish to put effort into it next time, I'm sure I'll be able to actually give you specific help to improve. As it is... it needs help all over the place, mostly because of your own lack of effort, spirit, and determination.

    Good luck, whether you intend to try applying again or go off to find an easier server or what-have-you.

    "One more time will do the trick!" and "Third time's the charm!" they say!


    1) What is your Minecraft username (or "IGN")?

    My IGN is PokemonFan04.


    2) Please explain why you would like to join the Server.

    Ever since I saw the trailer for this server I have wanted to join it! I head straight for the forums on here and I started! I actually applied before but I thought it wasn't time yet, I still had to get used to the mod. So I started playing around with it and just recently I downloaded the 1.6.4 version just so I can play here! This application would be the opportunity to join! I have always wanted to join this server! :P


    3) Please explain how your talents, skills, experience, personality traits, and aspirations can help contribute positively to our server.

    Well, I am young, so I don’t quite get the definition of “aspiration”, so I guess I’ll just tell you everything else! I am very friendly, and I like to get along with people! I like to be fair and settle debates! I have a wide experience with Minecraft and other popular games/franchises. I am very nice, and I like if everyone got along! I am caring, fair, respectful, responsible, and trustworthy. I am VERY kid friendly, meaning I almost NEVER do/say inappropriate things, and I NEVER say bad (curse, cuss) words!


    4) Please list five random facts about yourself that can help differentiate you from other players.

    1: I LOVE to draw! Drawing has been a hobby of mine since I was very young, almost to the age of 5. Since I have had practice with art and drawing for a very long time, I am very artsy and I sometimes like to teach people how to draw! One could call me an “art omni”.

    2: I love playing video games! Well… obviously! :D Playing video games has also been one of my favorite hobbies since I was 5, too! Don’t believe me? I have to Wii’s, an Xbox 360, an Xbox, a Wii U, a Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES), a GameCube, a Windows computer, a MacBook Pro (what I am using right now), my own TV, my own phone, tablet, remastered SEGA Genesis, and I used to have a PS2. But Minecraft is one of my all-time favorite video games, and with Minecraft coming to the Wii U, it will be even higher on my list!

    3: My favorite subject in school is math. Well… you said “random facts,” so I’m just going to go based off that. Math my all-time favorite subject, and I am very knowledgeable a it! I like giving myself a challenge, y’know? It’s actually quite fun, in my point of view! It is very handy in the future (which I will get to in just a bit), and it is important in our lives. Not only that, but sometimes I like to teach people some more about math.

    4: I love music. Singing is a hobby of mine, and composing music is an aspiration of mine (thanks for telling me what it means). I hope that one day I will be at the least known for my musical talent! I usually sing on my own free time, or between periods in school.

    5: I like to challenge myself. No matter if it’s in Minecraft with architecture, in math, with puzzles, or just about anything, I like to give myself a challenge! I like to beat high scores in games, challenge my mind in difficult puzzles, or teach myself some new words. Even if it is in drawing, gaming, or… “math-ing”, I always give myself a challenge! Writing this application is also a challenge, isn’t it?

    If I could add a 6th quality, I’d choose “I’m fun”, "I'm smart" or "I'm a good kid".


    5) To ensure you understand your rights and responsibilities on our server, please read the Novice's Creed, and write down one right or responsibility that you enjoy the most.


    ...can I write down a right and responsibility?


    Right:


    • You have the right to report, with evidence, any crimes committed against you or your property, or those belonging to a neighbor, Veteran player, or another Novice player.

    Responsibility:


    • Please be courteous to your fellow players on our server

    6) And finally, to confirm that you read the Big Sister Server Quick Guide please write down the name of the official server currency.

    The name of the official server currency is:



    "Cheese."


    Okay, I understand the staff thing. And even if I don't become staff, it's fine! I just wanna play!


    By the way, we're on the 101th page now!


    If there are any problems, or more information needed, feel free to contact me! :D By the way, more info. is also available in my signature.



    Well, I suppose now's finally a good time to review your application, huh? Sorry it may have looked like we forgot about you, but fortunately we've learned to keep good track of who applies for whitelisting. :P

    Anyway, on to the review itself. I see Kacii cleared everything but your reason to join... and honestly, that could still use some work. You mention vaguely that the trailer made you want to play with us, but please: what about the trailer made you want to play with us? Is it the community? The minigames? Roleplaying? Something other than the fact that we have the Gulliver mod, which is really not that unique of a feature?

    If we don't know why you want to be on, how can we give you more reasons to stick around, after all?

    Again, though, once you can fix that, you should be all good to go. Good luck!

    1: Benamania

    2: I am looking for a fun server with cool mods, I love this mod and the video looked like the server was fun!

    3: I am positive and polite! this will be good so others can use this as an example

    4: I am a YouTuber (The_pro gameplayerz59833) I love to build, I love helping others, I am NOT a griefer, I am polite and love to socialize.

    T
    o help you on your journey through our server, this list of Rights and Responsibilities has been
    compiled for you, to assure you that, even as a Novice player, you still have rules to abide to, as well as
    privileges offered to you to aid in your development. It is to your benefit to keep a copy of this list... this
    Novice's Creed... with you at all times to remain informed and astute.
    6:CHEESE!!!!!... yum!

    Well, hello there. Before we go on with this, I would like to inform you this app is among the most bare-bones examples I've seen yet, and you should really re-read the application requirements. It's not like I work here or anything, but I'm pretty sure two of our questions ask for 60 words, minimum.

    Just a friendly reminder before we begin.

    Now, onto your app. Your first answer (besides your name) is both way too short and extremely weak. Yes, we expect everyone who joins likes the mod... but what else, exactly? 'The video made our server look fun'? What exactly in the video made it look so appealing you went head-over-heels about it and couldn't read our application rules?

    Onto your next question, while you don't seem wrong about being positive and polite, you seem to be far from an example player, much less a whitelist applicant. This answer is far too short and just... vague. Got any in-game skills? Experience in certain situations on other Minecraft servers or even real life to help give us an idea of what your character is?

    Your next question is formatted... oddly. That, and the fact it's almost completely made up of facts that belong in the previous question made me think it was an extension of said previous question. And, let's both be serious for a second: what kind of a random fact is 'I'm not a griefer'?

    Your next question isn't one of the clearly labeled Rights or Responsibilities. Please, for the love of God, rectify this. I really don't think I need to add more than that.

    At least you got this right, though. Congrats?

    Look, I apologize if I come across as a huge jerk, but honestly, your application is hardly worth me going to all this effort to review. My review is longer than it, for crying out loud! Fortunately, everything you need to fix has been listed (even if it's between the lines), so you should know just how much effort you're expected to actually try putting into this. When you're ready to do more than five minutes of writing, go ahead and edit your application and post it back up again for further review. However, don't feel pressured to do so if you don't want to.

    In either case, good luck in your future endeavors

    Quote from Pyro448»

    Alrighty, here's my revised application. Probably should have done more research on the server the first time around. That's my bad.




    In-game name: pyro448


    This server appears to be one of the better ones out there. I haven't seen too many gulliver servers, probably because nobody wants to stay on Minecraft 1.6, but I wanted a chance to use this mod to its full potential in multiplayer. An old Minecraft version is hardly an obstacle at all to worry about, so here I am! Also, this is the only server I could see that was running the most recent version of gulliver. The other ones were on 1.5 or had other mods with them alongside gulliver. The community for this server is alive and well, with new applications coming in every day, and when I look at the server on my server list ingame, I usually see a couple people online. This server also appears to have a fairly organized society with people living in cities like Spawnington, which obviously means the owners/admins know what they are doing. I also like how there are so many unusual minigames on the server. From what I've seen, there's golf, chess, Battleship, and a ton of others. I haven't seen any of these minigames on other servers anywhere, including the infamous Hypixel and Mineplex servers. (Using the tinies as a golf ball is hilarious, by the way)


    I do have some decent building skill and have been working with redstone for almost the entire time I have owned the game. People sometimes call upon me to help them build their machines. Other than that, I am a calm person that rarely becomes frustrated at anyone. I think I've only had to use the /ignore command once, ever, for one specific troll.


    Five random facts about me are:


    1. I ironically own a fish. 5 of them, in fact.


    2. I HATE the cold. I try to avoid anything cold. Even when I'm hot and sweaty, I can't stand a freezing cold drink. I got hit by a blizzard once on a campout, and people had to drag me to the car because I couldn't move.


    3. I have the uncanny ability to find obscure bugs and exploits. I don't even have a search method, they just kinda show up. Whether it's luck or skill is still uncertain. (I do report them, so no worries :) )


    4. I tend to talk to myself when I'm alone. I might be crazy. Or maybe I have no friends... isn't that right, pyro?


    5. I'm good at hiding things. Sometimes to the point where I can't find something that I hid a while ago.


    I think the "Please avoid begging Staff to whitelist your friends without an application" responsibility is an important rule... not to say the others aren't, it's just that I have seen way too many of these sorts of people around on other servers. It's just rediculous.


    And the currency for the server is cheese, which is represented by Minecraft's sponge and lapis blocks.


    Well, you really added to your reason to join, at least. Could've been shorted and/or better formatted for an easier read, but the content checks out.


    You also changed your next answer to a better one, though I could think of ways it could be even better. As it is, it checks out.


    Your random facts are also much better. You're on a roll, so far!


    And... well, everything else was already great.


    So, overall, I think you definitely check out for a whitelist. Just give me a minute to sort things out. ^^

    Five random facts about me are:

    1. I am much more organized in Minecraft than I am in real life. I think Minecraft's cubic nature kinda influences people to make everything symmetrical and orderly.


    2. I HATE the cold. I try to avoid anything cold. Even when I'm hot and sweaty, I can't stand a freezing cold drink. I got hit by a blizzard once on a campout, and people had to drag me to the car because I couldn't move.

    I think the "Please avoid begging Staff to whitelist your friends without an application" responsibility is an important rule... not to say the others aren't, it's just that I have seen way too many of these sorts of people around on other servers. It's just rediculous.


    And the currency for the server is cheese. Specifically swiss cheese (sponge) and blue cheese (lapis).


    Well, at a glance, your app doesn't look so bad. Let's take an in-depth look, though...


    The only reason I'm seeing for you to join is the fact we have the Gulliver Mod. While it seems to be less and less likely another Gulliver server is going to pop up, on the off-chance one does we'd like to know why you wouldn't just abandon us. We have a number of trailers and server videos on youtube to help you find such reasons :P


    Your next question is alright, except for the following line: "I can handle a good deal of trolling before I start planning to troll back." We don't take too kindly to vigilantes. If you have a problem with someone report it to the staff, please. Trolling back just makes you a troll, and will get you in trouble as well.


    As for your random facts, they're... well, alright. A couple are rather closely related to Minecraft, buuut I think I'm getting a pretty good feel of your personality regardless. Enough to let those little things slide.


    That's a good choice of a Responsibility :P


    Aaaand yes, the currency is cheese. Albeit it isn't specifically swiss and blu :P


    Overall... well, you're not a bad guy, necessarily, but your app could use some extra work. Look through my review, fix what needs to be fixed (and no more, please. It makes you look bad) and come back for another round of reviewing. Hopefully, your second time will be the charm ^^


    Good luck!

    Alright, here's the deal.


    You've answered my questions more-or-less satisfactorily, even with the copious amounts of distrust Cia and I have poured on you. While I'll admit I still don't feel quite ready to trust you fully, I think you've demonstrated you can handle yourself on the server, in a good way.


    So, without further ado, I'll go ahead and whitelist you ^^

    (Though do stay out of trouble. I have an itchy ban-finger.)

    I also would like a place to experiment with the Gulliver Mod with new people


    I dunno. You made it sound like you didn't have anywhere to experiment with Gulliver mod, and now you have a server of your own and a bunch of friends to experiment with you?


    I know this looks like I'm nitpicking for no reason, but griefers and the like - typically ones who blatantly say 'I'm not a griefer' as if that suddenly makes them trustworthy - have gotten on and caused many a headache for the staff because little things like this aren't made completely, totally clear.

    Well... you've definitely changed most everything I asked you to. Except you haven't really explained what you mean to do in terms of 'experimentation'. 'No attempts of greifing as fast a possible as a small person, or big person, I'll save that for Singleplayer :)' does NOT put my mind at ease, needless to say, and you're going to have to explain to me, in-depth, what exactly you plan on doing and how you're going to get other people to work with you, assuming you can't do these experiments in single-player.


    You don't need to edit your app again. Just reassure me you have no malicious intent with this experimentation, and then you should be good to go for a whitelist.

    Why do I want to join the sever

    I really like how kind, and how happy the trailers look for your server, It looks like it would be a extremely enjoyable experience to play on your server. I also would like a place to experiment with the Gulliver Mod with new people, and to play Minecraft in a completely different way then I'm used to.


    Talents, skills, Personality traits, etc...

    I'm talented with computers, and anything to do with technology, I'm skilled with technology as well, mainly anything to do with computers, I really enjoy that stuff, and Minecraft Modding falls into that. I'm a kind person, I feel that whenever anyone needs help, or needs a friend, I'll always be there for them. I also like to experiment with new things, Gulliver isn't necessarily new, it is new to me because I've only just installed the mod, and I enjoy it.


    Random Facts

    * I use Windows 8.1 on a daily basis, I have the Areo Glass addon to make it more simular to Windows 7, I also experiment in VMWare with Windows XP and other Operating Systems.

    * I have 2 cats, ones named Butterscotch and is a Female, and the other is named Mischief, who is male and clearly his name describes his personality.

    * I am on the computer all the time, making me a very active user on many things(I hope to be active on your server, too!.

    * Aswell as minecraft, I also play roblox from time to time(I like messing with Studio, programming stuff)

    * I live in the Atlantic Time Zone, which I hope means that I'll be able to be on a lot when everyone else is!:)


    Novice's Creed stuff:

    The responsibility I have chosen is:



    The server currency is cheese, or Sponge Blocks.

    Lapis is also called "Blue Cheese"


    I've edited this post to make is comply with the standards.

    If you'd like any more edits, please ask me.

    -- Repost by Win10Fan --


    Well, overall, you seem to have changed a lot for the better.


    Your reason to join has improved by a lot. However, I may have miscounted slightly, but it seems you're a handful of words below the 60 word minimum, which is a little nit-picky, I admit. There is another thing that isn't very nit-picky, though, and that to 'experiment with the Gulliver Mod with new people'. You continue to mention this willingness to experiment throughout your app, too. Now, while this isn't necessarily bad, I would like to be very clear on this matter: whatever experimentation you plan on doing, if it breaks a rule, it will stop - one way or another - immediately. If you would care to explain what exactly you mean to experiment with, and how you mean to do it, it would help me sleep a lot easier if you get whitelisted.


    Anywho, your next answer is pretty good, as you added onto it, which is all Cia asked you to do... but you added that reference to experimentation again. Which, I see you mean is more like trying to learn the mod, but do keep in mind we have rules, and those rules won't stretch to help you learn the limits of the Gulliver Mod. Otherwise, this section is good.


    Your facts have all been updated, and look great... except for two things. Your third fact makes you sound like an unhealthy computer addict, so I would advise changing it (and taking a walk outside, while you're at it, for fresh air :P ). Meanwhile, your fourth fact hasn't changed while Cia made it sound like she wanted you to change it. I would suggest expanding upon what exactly you do in Roblox for length and clarification.


    The rest of your app still looks good, though.


    So, overall, I cannot whitelist you in good will at the moment, for a number of reasons: firstly, you need to clarify what exactly you mean by experimentation, and how you mean to go about it. You also need to lengthen your reason to join slightly. Finally, your random facts need a bit more editing. Besides that, though, you're getting close to being whitelist material. Good luck.

    1) What is your Minecraft username (or "IGN")?

    nick316kid123 (I made the account when I was younger, don't judge! xD )

    2) Please explain why you would like to join the Server.
    I've recently been using the Gulliver mod in singleplayer, and I have noticed that many features of the mod aren't as fun when you are all by yourself. After a while of searching, I came across this server, which seems to be very active with a great community. I have also seen many of the YouTube videos that members of your server have made, and they are fantastic! Not only are they well-made and fun to watch, but they also highlight the key things that one would want to join a Gulliver server for. In the videos, you can see how well the community gets along, and they highlight very well how the community comes together to have fun. I believe that I would be a good fit in a community like this.

    3) Please explain how your talents, skills, experience, personality traits, and aspirations can help contribute positively to our server.
    I believe that I will help keep the server a happy place because I get along very well with others. I don't like to get in arguments with others, so I try to avoid angering others. Adding on to that, I also have a good sense of humor. I enjoy making others laugh and having a great time. I also believe that my building skills could help improve the server. Though I'm not some kind of building genius, I like to think that my building skills are alright. Overall I think my main trait that will benefit the server is the fact that I love to interact with others. I have been on servers in the past where everyone keeps to themselves and don't collaborate, and it has been pretty boring. I mean, the whole point of getting on a server is to hang out with other players and have a great time. If I were to be whitelisted on the server, I would interact with others as much as possible.

    4) Please list five random facts about yourself that can help differentiate you from other players.

    - I have a quick wit, and love nothing more than making others laugh.

    - On multiplayer servers I tend to spend more time with other players than I do by myself.

    - I'm currently in high school, and so far I've managed to keep a 4.0 in honors and AP classes.

    - In the past, I've hosted servers of my own. However I never learned how to make a modded server!

    - I think having a few close friends that you can tell anything is better than having many distant friends.

    5) To ensure you understand your rights and responsibilities on our server, please read the Novice's Creed, and write down one right or responsibility that you enjoy the most.

    Please refrain from asking players and Staff for frequent favours and gifts – self­sufficiency and
    independence are virtues

    I believe that this responsibility is important because while I don't mind helping out a new player by giving them some materials, constant begging for donations tends to get annoying.

    6) And finally, to confirm that you read the Big Sister Server Quick Guide please write down the name of the official server currency.

    Cheese (Sponge Blocks)


    P.S. Even if I don't get accepted, thank you for taking the time to review my application, just from scrolling the thread for a bit I can't even imagine how hard it would be to read all of these!


    Haha, well, thanks for that note in your PS. There's a reason we have so many staff, though. ^^


    And, uh, you know you can change your Minecraft name, now, right? :P


    Anyway, your reason to join looks pretty good. You listed that our community is a good reason to join besides the mod, so that works out. :D


    ...Wow, this app is looking pretty great so far. Excellent paragraph on how you can contribute, though I do feel obliged to warn you that sometimes the server can get pretty empty... so, uh, I hope you're okay with playing by yourself, at times. ^^;


    Great random facts! However, two of them are two closely-related to Minecraft to be considered 'random' by our criteria, and you'll have to change them. Your second fact has pretty much been made clear by your answers to questions 2 and 3, so that needs to go, and your fourth fact doesn't show much about your character, so it's a rotten apple, too, I'm afraid.


    Great quote, and thank you for providing the reason you quoted it. Awesome job! ^^


    Well... while two of your random facts aren't quite right, your heart, grammar, and spelling all seem to be in the right place! I'm sorry it's taken you so long to be reviewed, but give me a couple minutes and you'll be whitelisted to the server! Thank you for your patience. ^^
