    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.

    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?

    Description about yourself: (Optional) Uhm. I like to play Minecraft. I'd consider myself a fairly intelligent person. You know. I'm smart. Can do complex equations like 1 + 2 = 3. Uhm. I can build redstone contraptions like using a lever to turn a piece of redstone on and off. You know. The things that only an expert minecrafter would know.Oh right. Most of these plugins I don't understand. Like these:

    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!

    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.

    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!

    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.

    yea, he's totally right. ya know, that pixelart desert we have, maybe its no a good idea, we can better place it further away, about that, we can talk later.
    what he also said is about the spawn, we have a spawn without any shops, helpful things. o.k. we dont have a huge tower made out of diamond blocks, but you know what i mean.

    The best thing to do with Pixelart is find a far away area away from civilization, make an enormous wall, and just give people permission to use once they ask if they can make pixelart. After that, you can make a warp to it so people can admire your community's work.
    As for the spawn area, shops are a big help, try your best to give your community advice on what kind of shop to make, so people don't get confused. For example, if about 8 shops are selling iron ingots, there might be an issue deciding which price is the cheapest. People don't have time to find all the prices and compare them to find the cheapest. Try to make sure that shops differ from each other.
    Glad you liked my ideas guys. :smile.gif:

    Was my application overlooked or rejected? Just wandering because Armagedragon posted after me but was whitelisted, whereas I am still waiting. Just curious, don't want to come across as pushy.

    I would recommend you did what I did, edit your profile with a bright picture, maybe a signature supporting a clan or mod, so you're profile sticks out, and the person checking applications can see it clearly.
    I've gotten way too many people missing my application before then.

    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 you knock out the PvP for this server, if you're looking for a good community, that's probably the worst thing you can add. People will not cooperate, and hackers will come in and be a douche. You can always add PvP, but not encourage it, incase a griefer comes the builder will have a chance to protect themselves, and for PvPers you can add a nice PvP arena and add competitions and stuff to avert their attention from the people who want to survive.
    You're goal is to make seperate groups. Builders want to get along with builders and build with each other, PvPers want to PvP with each other, that's how it works.
    A big mistake that servers tend to do is leave the builders dry. You should add bonuses to being a builder as well as being a PvPer. Builders want to be rewarded for their structures, I've made one before and I was not thanked and was completely ignored. If a person makes a good structure, you can make it a public building, where people can warp into it and explore it, and possibly protect it from griefers. (Actually, you should most definitely protect it from griefers, if griefers have easy access to it, they'll go there.) The better builder you are, the more that attributes to the community. If you want, you can make their lives easier by adding resource farms. If they can't find trees, make a public tree farm. If they're having trouble mining iron and diamond, or getting killed in the wilderness, add a public mine.
    PvPers don't give that great of a chance to be a part of the community, that's why tournaments are such a great thing. If you win a tournament, you'll look like a good person, and you'll make some friends and have some fans along the way. Even participating in a tournament will make you good. That's why depending on tournaments for PvP is a good thing, although you want to make sure you have good choices. Someone who kills people building should be discouraged and they will be looked down upon by the community anyway. Tournaments also give an easy chance of rewarding the player.
    The issue is that you can't host a tournament all the time, that's why you need battlegrounds in which people can fight. This can get really in depth, or you can just add the PvP arena plugin and be done with it.
    Something I thought was a good idea is setting up two bases, a blue base and a red base. There are places the player can go, for example a creeper spawner would be cool, where the person grinds gunpowder to make TNT, to make cannons to get into the person's base. The goal is to take down the leader, or gain an item from the person, like capture the flag. Meanwhile, while a person is fighting off creepers, you have people in the center fighting off the people trying to kill the person grinding creepers. Also maybe add a little dungeon that a group of people can run to get better swords or armor for their group. This idea, however, requires a custom mod.
    Speaking about dungeons, they're a fantastic way for players to get started without too much hassle. Just have them run through a couple zombie and skeletons spiders, maybe a maze or parkour along the way, and they get awarded with a chest (There's a mod out there somewhere that does this for you, rather you having to reset the chest everytime someone runs through, not sure what it's called) that will have goodies.
    Using kits is a good way to get them started pre-dungeon phase. Give them some stone tools, and some food in a nice little kit to get them started.
    A bad idea is to make a really huge spawn with a bunch of useless stuff. It looks like crap, makes the server look cheap, and makes people get lost on their way to find things. If I want to find a store, I don't want to travel through a bunch of useless fountains and pixelart along my way. Add buildings that have a purpose, although making plots for people to build in is O.K, as long as you don't add like 100 plots.
    Those are my ideas, if you need me to elaborate on anything, just ask.

    Quote from Newbizzle

    7 minutes of jailtime means you were jailed multiple times. and hit and run or kill and run is in the rules.

    Indeed. I do have to endure 7 minutes of jail time, and indeed I have been jailed multiple time for failure to understand rules, my past experiences were not a problem. It's just kind of a pain a guard tacks on an extra 2 minutes due to the guard himself not understanding the rules.
    Hit and run and kill and run is indeed on the rules, I believe I went through that I understand what they mean. It specifically says that if someone hits someone and both run into safe zone, that's hit and run. Kill and run is killing someone and running into safe zone. I did neither, because I never ran into safe zone. I believe I should have the opportunity to be able to escape a guard, even though it's extremely unlikely. A guard needs to chase someone down, not immediately start complaining about how I'm breaking rules.
    Quote from Jrrj15

    2 things!
    1st off I STILL haven't gotten my Apprentice I payed for!

    And 2nd Ehcre jailed me even after I gave him sword and armor that I had! Just so you know his Guard should be taken away

    Sorry you haven't gotten the apprentice you paid for. :sad.gif: You should tell an admin about that right away so they know.
    Second, I agree that Ehcre should get his guard taken away. He's abusive and doesn't understand the rules. Guards should be tested on their knowledge of the rules before they are blindly accepted. No offense to the person accepting them, he's the only bad guard I've seen.

    I'd like to tell you that a guard named ehcre was abusing his job.
    So, I did something I shouldn't have, I killed someone in front of a guard. When I noticed the guard was chasing me, I ran for it. The guard tells me that's "against the rules" and tells me he wants my sword. He starts the countdown and I say "FINE, I'LL GIVE IT TO YOU." and then ask him where he is. He refuses to tell me where he is and jails me.
    Now that doesn't sound very fair. I did nothing wrong, there's nothing against running in the rules unless you run into non-pvp, and I was specifically in PvP the entire time. And also, I can't turn in my sword if he's no where to be found. Please do something about this, I found this very unfair and now I have to endure 7 minutes of jailtime.

    I voted for the server: No, I vote for servers once I've been on and confirmed they are good.
    I have read the rules and understood the rules: I don't want to be forced to go onto your website to read rules, but assuming they are basic rules (No hacking, no xray, no flying, no griefing, no piling mods with questions, etc.), I agree.
    Have you ever been banned from another server: Yes, one, for a really annoying reason. I don't like to talk about it, because it takes up like ten lines, and I'm too lazy to type all that. In a nutshell, I was an admin, I was demoted, I wasn't happy, the owner banned me for not being happy about it.
    You understand that this promotion to a Survivor is not instant and can take some time: Yes
