    Hi all,


    There has been a lack of updates regarding the serer, and for that I apologize on behalf of the entire staff. To be frank, the reboot has not lived up to expectations. Whether it was poor admin involvement (particularly myself), lack of content, or just the lost interest of players in this type of server, the player count has dropped to nearly zero within the last few months. While it saddens me to shut down for good, it no longer makes sense to continue hosting Convicted. I want to thank each and every one of you, especially those that have been here since the beginning. The only reason Convicted survived for so long, outliving hundreds of other servers, is because of you guys. Our community is something special and I hope you all feel the same.


    My goal is to keep this community alive in Convicted's wake. That being said, I have transferred ownership of the domain to MineCraft Community Prison, a server similar to Convicted. (Read for more info) The IP in your server lists will now point to this server, in hopes that it will help bring our community together as well as rekindle the classic prison server genre.


    As cliche as it sounds, all good things come to an end. But hopefully this change will give you all a reason to keep in touch with each other.


    Best,

    Will

    I'm sure you've all heard the rumors circulating around recently. Resets, shutdowns, etc. The purpose of this post is to lay them all to rest. The truth is that they are true - to an extent.


    Convicted has become stale. There's no arguing that. There just aren't enough incentives or goals to keep players interested. The economy is over saturated. PvP has become a joke. The playerbase is dwindling. As a result, we are no longer receiving enough money in donations to continue in this manner.


    Moving forward, our plan is to completely reboot Convicted over the next few months. This will mean a completed new slate for everyone. (except for donor, which will be discussed) Convicted desperately needs time to breath- time to fix problems, create new content, and ultimately allow for new growth within the server. Unfortunately this warrants a server shutdown. Our data center will be suspending service within the next few hours.


    Convicted has been my baby from the beginning. I never once expected something I created for fun to grow so large and have so much influence. I am very thankful to everyone who has contributed to this amazing server and community. This has been a huge part of my life for nearly four years, and it's sad to see it go, even temporarily.


    Just know that the admin team will be doing our best to completely overhaul the server these next few months. Check this forum and http://mcconvictedwiki.weebly.com frequently for updates.

    See you all soon.

    If you were a tree guard you get demoted to c because the rank is removed. if that is the case they will promote you ASAP

    Whoever removed Tree Guard, prepare to die.

    Greetings, Prisoners!
    ------------------------------------
    After a long and arduous wait, the Wardens are ready to reveal a huge awaited update!

    Please read the following information carefully. The following changes will be
    Rolled out IMMEDIATELY following this post:

    Introducing: Hero-Block, the newest addition to the Prison!
    Located at the end of C-Cell Hallway (Where message board used to be)

    For added content,
    Our new block will be placed between Elite, and Free, changing the hierarchy to the following
    Order: {D - C - B - A - Elite - Hero - Free}

    Like Free, Hero will cost 100k. Thus bumping the cost of Free up to 150k!

    Sorry, but along with this update comes a reset of all Frees to C.
    -------------------------------------
    We hope that by resetting all Frees, the Free rank will become much more prestigious.

    Other updates on the way:
    Ban list reset
    Faction land claiming
    Chat Mod

    IDK how the vount vote thing works, I've voted 4 times but I'm not on list. Also if everyone votes everyday or atleast more than 5 then how will prizes be given out? I mean the ones at top are random votes with the max number of votes possible.


    Prizes will be given out to the top 5 voters. If more than 5 people tie for the top number of votes, all of those people will receive a prize.

    I have heard from several people that ranks, money and the wilderness will be reset with 1.7.
    I'm not sure if it is just a rumour or actually the truth, but if a warden actually has this idea:
    Don't do it, people would quit.
    Collecting this money and building lots of stuff in the wilderness was so much work, resetting it now would make many people angry (and I'm one of them).

    I know that we will get new biomes with 1.7, and I have a suggestion for this:
    Have another world which is just used to collect ressources and explore.


    This is not true. Nothing will be reset for 1.7

    ATTENTION MY FRIENDS

    Sadly, Noakii is banned. I have acquired news from a secret provider that Noakii, changed the donation information and has STOLE 300$ worth of real life money. My informant may have been bullshi*ting, but it seems real, because he is actually banned. /seen Noakii
    I personally kind,of thought Noakii was a good warden, even though he excercized favoritism and was other things I would not like to mention.
    But he IS banned, and it is very sad. He was a part of the server and we will remember him. But some players are relieved, as they believed he was a tyrant and a bad warden. But Noakii was revealed to be a sick cheating bastar*d. I'm ashamed of him for stealing money. This is from your news reporter, ByondAwesome0, back to you alexisiop.


    ROFL cool story, bro!

    - Guards cannot call for swords in plots unless said defendant was striking the guards from within the plots.

    (As stated by Noakii)

    - Glitching in plot = no no.
    (ie. A plot has glass panes/blocks and someone who is not the member/owner breaks them to punch you.)
    I would like to know what punishment (or if there are any) would this constitute as?

    - Contraband in the playermarket
    -Some guards jail for swords/contraband in the playermarket. Would a warden/alpha clarify this rule as to:
    - What if the defendant was selling the contraband via shop? Via Player?
    - What if the defendant was afk and someone tossed a contraband on the defendant and the defendant is afk holding the contraband?


    Edit (1?):

    - What about having contraband in one's own cell(s)?


    That is all I can think of for now. :D Feel free to add to this.


    What Noakii told you was incorrect. Contraband can be demanded by a guard ANYWHERE in the prison.
    The following are the only exceptions:

    All contraband is allowed in Donor Block
    Weapons are allowed in A-Block Mob Farm

    Obviously, contraband rules do not apply in Free. As for glitching into a plot, the most that would be done is a 24hour temp ban. A Warden would have to catch them in the act to be 100% sure they're at fault.
