    posted a message on Vanilla Crew WANTED!

    Status: Open! Not for long, though!


    Hey-o,


    Looking for a chill Vanilla Survival Crew to build with. If you're a like-minded individual, you'll agree that Vanilla Survival is already the best way to play, especially when you've got a sizable and respectable crew behind you.


    I'm specifically looking for 4-5 people to play together on a Vanilla world, all with moderate building expertise. Specifically, I'm interesting in finding a group, going on an established/populated vanilla server, and surviving from there. If that isn't what you're interested in, please look elsewhere. Furthermore, I'm interested in finding mature 'Crafters who have the time to play, and know what they're doing.


    We can make a "faction" there, make a huge redstone-encrusted base, grief, make a castle, imprison cows, whatever. The world's your apple, kiddo.


    Just so I can get some basic info, here's a list for you:


    Minecraft Name:

    Age:

    Skype-name (for out-of-game communication, no mic required):

    Time-zone:

    Greatest Strengths/Profession (PK'er, Builder, Redstone, etc.):

    Why Are You a Good Fit?:

    Comments:




    I look forward to hearing from you, and will communicate with you guys further via PM/Skype. Thanks.

    posted a message on "Vanilla" Servers False Advertising
    I appreciate the kind responses, seeing how my last attempt at this ( a year or so ago) resulted in some...not so nice responses . I'm going to go through them on a common point basis because I have a fear of essays, I'm tired, and nobody likes reading quote chains.

    •Vanilla is too destructive. It creates large scale griefing.
    •Not necessarily. I was a little too strict when I said that anti-cheat was the only plugin I liked. Indeed, a plugin is good if it doesn't disturb your basic gameplay. The criteria of this includes what you'd expect; nothing beyond what you can do in SSP, except with players. This includes grief tracking plugins, anticheat, administrative plugins (strictly to combat griefing, hacking, and make management easier), colors and ranks, spam blocks; the works. Using purely these plugins, a whitelist, and a little admin watch here and there, it's possible to create a grief-free vanilla server. And it is vanilla because at the end of the day, you really aren't affecting gameplay.

    On a different note altogether, I and others do have an appreciation for anarchy servers. They make for intense and interesting scenarios when they play out right. It just means that you can't build anything too impressive unless you go out pretty far.

    All the same, these are chances and changes that the vanilla crowd accepts and actively seeks out. There's nothing wrong with indulging some particular fun. It is the false advertising of "Vanilla" that ultimately makes this impossible nowadays, and I simply seek to change this.

    •X plugin does not affect gameplay and is almost required for a good server.
    •As said above, I really don't have anything wrong with plugins that don't mess with gameplay because they bring about "ideal" vanilla (less hacking and, in some cases, less griefers). However, at the end of the day, anything past that is affecting gameplay, and shouldn't be vanilla.

    •You can't really enforce a rule like this.
    •Changing that was my purpose in writing this. As said before, you can't be "kinda" dead or "almost" negative or "99%" off. Life is binary, and this is no different when you take relativity into account (almost/99% relative to what?). As such, for reasons of making searching a lot easier, and to solve this whole issue, I propose an entirely new adjective to describe "almost" servers. Chocolate works, "almost" could; just as long as they don't use vanilla, and as long as there is good reason (punishment) not to use vanilla when it isn't.

    posted a message on "Vanilla" Servers False Advertising
    I apologize for a misplaced rant, but seeing as how the server forum wouldn't be an ideal place for a rant, I figured that this was the next best option-whatever, sue me.

    Onto my point; I am absolutely sick of the repeated false advertising that is going on here in the server forum.

    What I'm referring to is the very deceptive use of the word "vanilla" (and, to a lesser extent, "anarchy")in the server forum. I would excuse a little misplacing here and there, but it's apparent that 99% of all servers listed as "vanilla" just...aren't vanilla, quite frankly.

    Vanilla means that the purported server is virtually identical to SSP- just with people. In that sense, you could define it as having absolutely zero plugins, mods, admin interference, or otherwise that would serve to distinguish the experience from a populated SSP world. That would make it an easy term to understand...or would it?

    In reality, taking a tour of a overwhelming majority of these vanilla worlds would reveal a (to a vanilla appreciator like me) cynical and obnoxious pattern:
    -Almost all have /home, /back, and tp commands (ruining any experience of death or travel in general)
    -Most have lockette commands of some form
    -Many have MCMMO and other miscellaneous plugins
    -Some have the audacity to have more plugins, safe areas, and huge, ugly buildings than a majority of actual plugins do!
    -Ironically, most lack Anticheat or similar plugins, which are the only ones truly deemed alright under the definition of vanilla.

    At this rate, what the servers offer is bordering on false advertising. Call me a whining idiot, but I'm really sick of playing into a vanilla server to have someone /sethome in my house, /back when they die, and have plugins ruin gameplay in general.

    The solution? Simple. Define vanilla as lacking any sort of gamechanging plugins, period. Anticheat is all you get. Anything else and you are liable to a ban, mute, etc. as required for false advertising.

    As for the merits of vanilla for those who are going to start off by immediately denouncing vanilla gameplay), that's not the purpose here. The point is that vanilla is a legitimate server type that really shouldn't be walked on and used like it is now as a moot advertising point.

    And there is, of course, the existence of "99% vanilla" or "almost" vanilla servers. These should be removed as well. Firstly, terms like "99%" and "almost" are completely vague and illogical term. Almost relative to what? 99% of what total? Secondly, vanilla is a binary thing, a 0 or a 1. You can't be 99% dead, or 99% pregnant, or "almost" positive, or "almost" negative. Vanilla is objective and not relative to anything. Terms like 99% and can (and have in the past) meant a plethora of plugins.

    Needless to say the forum is one of the most popular spots to attract any MC player to servers; I'd say it beats out the Reddit and PMC servers combined. And with that, I think we should have a little class and stop this blatant ...annoyance, in lieu of any bad words.

    1.Wrong forum.

    2.You'll need to pay for anything original, decent, and worthy.

    3.If you're looking for freebies, at least take the time to use some grammar. Nobody is going to spend time making designs for what may be a channel with 3 subs run by 12 year olds.

    Am I being harsh? Perhaps, but truth does that.
