Welcome to Season 1 of our Community Events: Valtellini Valley

"Welcome to Valtellini Valley. The earth has fallen to pieces and this is the last safe-haven that exists. The walls are fortified from the outside world, but you can still smell and hear some of the chaos that exists. You are tasked with rebuilding humanity in a way that can withstand the cruel environment outside these walls. Take a few days to create a base and get familiar with the area. Soon, the outside will start creeping in. How long can your civilization last?"

How Community Event Seasons Work
In an effort to bring together the community and provide some more interesting ways to engage, the Manager+ team has taken an idea originally suggested in our #survival-feedback chanel. Community Events allow for our users to have a set-aside time to work together as a community towards the Season goal. This season, the survivors in Valtellini Valley must band together to create a thriving society. The world is chaos outside the valley, and players will be faced with many challenges that they must prepare for. Zombie hoards, extreme weather, and even back-stabbing are all possibilities while restarting the world.

A Manager+ will announce 2 weeks in advance the time(s) that they will be hosting the event. A regular schedule would be 2-4 play sessions prior to a "wave" coming on, and the participants needing to defend or recover from the devestation. A schedule will be outlined in a post in the Community Projects board, as well as posted in the Discord. Plan on attending to earn your way towards the Season 1 special prizes and memorabilia!

Current planned schedule:

First Release: Saturday, February 24th at 8pm CST (countdown here: link)
Following Play times:
Monday, February 26th at 7pm CST
Friday, March 1st at 9pm CST
Tuesday, March 5th at 7pm CST

First Wave: Saturday, March 9th at 12pm CST

See you all soon! Warp will be provided in-game!

Christmas is coming and the server has some great builders! That being said, how well do these builders build under pressure? What if someone else is giving the directions? From the mind of a current Survival Player (Thank you TheKingOfPop2) we are going to have a Ratatouille style build contest.

Players will partner up (if enough allow) and one person will "sit" on the head of another. The person on the bottom will be given a simple 2D image to construct while the top player will be given necessary blocks. After a certain amount of time (2 minutes - 5 minutes) an (un)biased judge will decide who did the best!

Prizes for each round will be 2 arcade vouchers and 100k for each player! If not enough players show, it will be a singular based event.

Let's see how this goes! We will play at /warp Pictionary, with some modifications made to the arena. See you Sunday at 6pm CST!

Survival / [Survival] Commenting on Unbans
Nov 23, 2017, 07:07 AM
Within the last month an onslaught of comments on unbans that aren't the person's that is commenting has happened. (Warlock_ben being the best example).

This is just a reminder that if you comment on an unban that is not yours, and you were not asked to comment, you will be forum warned. This will be strictly enforced starting now. This could result in loss of rank for Legends if it is excessive and repeated. Just use common sense.

If you absolutely must say something, either ask the staff member in charge of it or the Manager+ team before posting or be at peace with the warning you will receive.

Hello! Recently, my Ag Business class has taken over a website hosting ag jobs. The program used behind it is WordPress. We want this website to be developed and marketed by students, so I asked to learn how to run and work it.
Only one teacher has training behind it, so if someone who has ample knowledge and is willing and able to teach it to me could, I would love it. A little more than the basics but I do not expect to excel in the program.

Thank you!

Howdy ;D ! We all love potatoes. Towelie even had a potato awareness day. Now, anyone who is pro-potato please look away, but what form do you love to eat? I could eat fried potatoes all day long. Chips are good, especially hickory-smoked barbecue.

What about you? What kind of potatoes do you love most? Do you only eat potatoes with a certain type of condiment?

Hey there!

What kind of things are considered rude/inappropriate/impolite in your life and culture? Are there things that are considered such that you think are unique only to you and your life? What kind of things do you find rude/impolite/etc? With different cultures practicing different things, maybe some things you do would be shocking for other cultures to do.

In my life, speaking with food in your mouth, having your phone out at the dinner table, and chewing with your mouth open are all considered extremely rude. No one really cares about taking off your shoes or if you speak out of turn.

If you leave a comment, try to point to what part of the world you are from/what kind of culture you are influenced by!
