Thank you for agreeing to our terms. Upon discussion with the Manager+ team and evaluating your builds, we did choose to leave you some of your protections instead of making you start from scratch. Anything that was iron+, had a mob spawner, and your /home was removed.

I will request an Admin to set your money and untrusted hours, and then you will be unbanned.

Hi @chadlinxuser, I was the staff member who banned you. From what I understand, you have discussed your ban a bit with AidenBwah and you have shown some significant remorse. I am glad you understand that what you did put you at a larger advantage on the server compared to those who follow our rules. There are a couple of reasons to your ban, so I am going to break them down and what their consequences are;

Illegal Mob Grinder
You had setup an auto-afk Mob grinder, which is against our rules. Mob grinders are allowed as long as your are manually killing each mob, and not afk.
 :redflower: As a consequence, your auto-grinder will be removed upon your unban.

emp scamming
Through the use of your auto-mob grinder, you were able to accumulate a significant amount of mob heads, which in-turn allowed you to cash-in for a significant amount of emp. Upon discussion with the Manager+ team, you made trips to the EMP to purchase items such as nether stars and other high-profile items, which cost significant emp. You used illegal means to obtain the EMP, which is unfair to others who followed the rules. This is your most serious offence. Because of this, the consequences are also serious;
 :redflower: You will have your EMP set to 0
 :redflower: Because you used EMP to purchase materials and building blocks (verified by Manager+), you will have your buildings and chest removed, including the materials within your inventory and enderchest. Basically, you will start as a guest again.
 :redflower: You will need to serve 3 hours of Untrusted, a rank with limited abilities.

Illegal macro/AFK
This part played significantly into your above ban reasons. It was because you had a macro to log you back into the server when our AFK kicker would remove you that you were able to acquire and exploit the above items.
 :redflower: Please read our rules to be better aware of what is allowed and not allowed in the future.
 :redflower: These actions also contributed to the decision of placing you in the untrusted rank.

These requirements are significant, however, what you had done significantly put you at an advantage over other players who were following our rules. We hope to see you back on the server to continue to chat with friends, and that these unban requirements are used as a learning opportunity instead of a deterrent.

Your unban is also being discussed with other Manager+ team members, so some additional requirements may be put in place upon your unban.

I will need you to agree to each item of your unban to be able to process the unban. In your reply, please make sure to agree to 1)having your EMP set to 0, 2) having your builds and enderchest removed, 3) serving in the untrusted rank for 3 hours, and 4) having read the rules.

If you would like to discuss your requirements further you can do so here also. Please respond within 72 hours to keep your unban active and unlocked.

Quote from: UntrustedAlly on Nov 13, 2022, 02:59 PMCrazy to see so many old names from my childhood.

I joined in March 2013 and spent most of my time on the Tekkit 1.2.5 server before switching to the main server after it was closed. It brings joy to my heart to see the community is still alive, and that so many people from years ago are still around and active here. I just came back today hoping to see some old friends on the server.

Thank you Towlie and everyone else for everything you've done.

I hope life has treated you all well over the last 10 years and I hope to see you all on the server sometime.

Great to hear from you Untrusted! Hope all is well with you!

Quote from: Shnarf on Aug 12, 2022, 05:25 AMI along with Sparkle_Sun (my sister) joined back in 2013. I was originally named Gold_Cube and this is a newer forum account due to me forgetting my old login info under Gold_Cube, but from time to time we both still discuss or pop into SFT. It's crazy to think about how I was 11 and Sparkle was 14 when we first started playing on the survival server. Time really does fly by... One of these days before college starts back up I will have to pop onto SFT. I need to probably buy MC again due to no longer having my original Mojang account email which is required in order to migrate the account to Microsoft.

Schnaaaaaaaaarf, great to see you!

Quote from: Qwerty102964 on Aug 01, 2022, 07:05 PMOh man I picked a great time to check in. Passed my 10 year mark this March. So many good memories from this place. Also, I was the person whose wedding party curiousartist referred to in his post, lol. Made some lifelong friends from this community for sure.

And I can't believe I recognize every name who has responded so far. Seeing lots of us grown up, married, with kids, etc is great.  :heart:

Qwerty! Great to see you around again. I know we didn't make a big connection while we played but you're a big name I remember, so glad to hear from you once again.

Hope everyone jumps on soon and sees the new /w2 uploaded :D

Hello Hustle54. You were banned back in 2014 by someone who is no longer staff. I am going to refer your unban to the appropriate people. Please allow them 48 hours to respond.

Quote from: RemninBwah on Jul 12, 2022, 05:30 PMNot from specifically 2012, but I am from early 2013! Used to go by Amber_Kat, go by RemninBwah now

Amber_Kat! It's been so long! Great to see you again.

I joined in 2013 so almost to that 10 year mark. Two whole different worlds for sure, especially when I think about how long I spent as staff. My join date was 6-11-2013, and I just got married on 6-11-22. Two different worlds for sure. Love staying around though, some of the plug-ins are just fun to use for a while and catching up with those old-timers from time to time is great too.

Removed my previous post as I answered my own questions. Here's a couple of my thoughts after playing for a while.

Are you planning on maintaining and updating this server? If so, here's what I think could make it more challenging (because honestly, it's still kinda easy since we can continually respawn after death).

 :goldenapple: Make it impossible to craft armor. Only way to get armor is to get it from mobs/chests/nether/end/etc...
 :goldenapple: Make it impossible to craft golden apples.
 :goldenapple: Maybe make it impossible to enchant or brew? Not decided on this one yet, mainly because I haven't made it that far.

 :apple: You can add a couple of commands, mainly /who. Not sure if /pstats works either.

I like the scoreboard on the righthand side on deaths. Maybe we could do something more with that in the future? Like switch it out to count different things, like person who has lived the longest since last death? Most times killed by certain mob? etc...

Quote from: SavageCoopDoge on Apr 20, 2021, 02:50 PMsomething like slimefun to where they have to grind for 20 years, but more items and cooler stuff

Or something like quests, like what they have in WynCraft

I may be mistaken, but didn't we have something similar to quests at one point? A wildwest server, or was it a part of B-team/Pixelmon?

I personally just came back to playing (because I was isolated from testing positive for COVID and was SO BORED) and am enjoying my time. Here is why I took a three year break.

:apple: I was burnt out from being staff by the time I quit playing. A couple of things happened while being staff that rubbed me the wrong way, and that did not aid to helping me stay around. Once I was done being staff, I lost my passion for playing on SFT as I had been staff for 2 straight years.
:apple: I went into my last year of high school and first two years of college which was a busy, stressful time that I didn't have the time or energy to log into SFT.
:apple: Not having the time or energy to log into SFT meant most of my builds got BCV'd if I did log in for a couple days, so all of my progress was continually reset which made me not want to log in either.
:apple: Most of my friends who played had also stopped playing because of a lot of drama that was going on, and it made things divisive and uncool to be around.

However, like I said, I have now started playing again (racking up 35 hours last week alone, thanks COVID). Here's why I'm sticking around.
:goldenapple: I really enjoy some of the end-game plugins we offer, like pyrofishing and slimefun, and while I did not get into them before I left or the few times I stuck around for a week, I am challenging myself to do so because I have now come to appreciate just how immersive and technical they can be. I also aspire to get into the top 10 of Reaction, a great plugin, thanks djkirsh.
:goldenapple: The BCV rules have changed so now I don't feel as pressured to continually log in and be active. I also do not have a staff rank/the uptime requirements for Elder/Specialist have changed, and I do not feel pressured to log in/fill a weekly uptime requirement.
:goldenapple: Some of my old-time buddies don't play, but familiar faces are still around and I have enjoyed catching up and seeing them be consistently present (winston_b, omelott, MasterX70, Darren64_NY, Britney1177 to name a few).

One thing that I would like to praise you Towelie, Fear, Dpa, Saywhat, and all the staff teams between 2018-Now is how you have changed your perspective and approach to SFT. I was around when people would FIGHT to get a spot on the survival server; that's how many players would be logged in at once. You needed to show up an hour before a weekend event to even have a chance at playing. But SFT is not that big anymore, and for a while the general attitude was to pretend like we could get back there with a little push and new ideas, but we couldn't because vanilla MC isn't that big anymore. Now, our world sizes are smaller, our BCV rules are longer, and we generally care more about retention then size again. Good job higher-ups, a much needed attitude shift.

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.

Quote from: 4dan7 on Oct 22, 2017, 03:41 PMTwo questions:

1. Can we move more than 1 build bc that would be awesome.

2.How lond do we have to move everything?

Questions like this to be answered later today. A build move post is coming in 2 or 3 hours

Here's a few words that I would say should be extremely thought about before using:

Actually don't think just don't say these words:
  • The derogatory term for a person of dark skin color that start with the letter "n"
  • The derogatory term for a person who prefers to spend their affection on members of the same sex, particularly male, that starts with the letter "f"
  • The term used to most often mock the intelligence level of a person who has 0 control over such level that starts with the letter "r"

Highly debatable to be used, would need to be clarified further if allowed:
  • The word with the direct definition of "a person born of unmarried parents; an illegitimate child" that starts with the letter "b"
  • The word with the direct definition of "a contemptuous term used to refer to a women" that starts with the letter "c"

Thank you dictionary.com for the definitions under the "highly debatable" column.

Quote from: Protecter3 on Jul 31, 2017, 04:52 PMCan we use redstone lamps or togglable lights to harvest crops, and are simple iron farms allowed?
Also, are semi-automatic smooth/cobble stone farms using pistons to move the stone to allow more stone to form allowed?

You have to hit the switch on the light. Iron farms are a no go, won't work anyway with farm limiter, and no on the cobble/stone farms.

Quote from: Dartz on Jul 28, 2017, 03:03 AMSo For the automated farms. I have a cactus farm that uses no redstone. I have fences that break the cactus and i have water that pushes the cactus towards hoppers. Is that illegal?

No, that is illegal. It allows for the harvest of items without the player doing any interaction. Also, it lags the area if it is of a bigger size.
