These are difficult times. However, we are helped in these difficult times, by two very important resources, which you the players, can help us with:

#1 Votes (help us show up in the minecraft server lists, and get more players)
#2 Donations (help us pay for our bills, advertising, and any other costs we may incur).

Seing as currently we have two very important projects going on for SFT (Prison and Pix 1.10), I would like to ask you guys that you vote daily on all the voting sites and donate if we can (we really need donations in order to be able to pay for advertisements which at this point are essential for us, at least until these new projects are finished and gain some traction)

Thank you and please donate if you can!

And vote daily!

Come and paint the world on our very own Splatoon server. 
IP: towelie.sftmc.org:1337 [MC 1.8.9]
The server is hosted on my VPS, and is intended as a temporary event server. In the future, I plan on hosting such small minigame/event servers every weekend, where our players can un-wind without that inherent risk that comes with losing your items.

NOTE: You need MC 1.8.9 in order to be able to play. So create a 1.8.9 profile.
The optimal game size is 4v4 but the max is 8v8

General Announcements / The Conclusion
Jan 20, 2017, 05:55 PM
After recent events, I can only say I deeply regret my course of actions and I fully intend on changing / improving myself with the feedback I received, and through that SFT.
It's going to be a process, so it's not going to magically happen overnight, but you should start seing improvement.

Thank you for your continued support to Super Fun Time, and I'm sorry to those I drove away from SFT. I wish I could magically fix it but sadly, once you burn a bridge, it's hard if not impossible to re-build that bridge. It's not going to be in vain though, I am going to use that as a building block for the next bridge (meaning I will use what I learned about myself, to improve myself and SFT)

6
It's obvious I've upset some players lately.
I'd like each of you to tell me one thing they feel I should change about how I approach things.
Absolutely no drama will be tolerated. Don't word these in the form of personal attacks "You suck", instead do "I think you handled x situation wrong, instead you should do this from now on"
Also, please like the posts of people you agree on (on this specific matter, not in general), so I know which things I need to change the most.
Thank you.

Please help us by voting for us at Minecraft Servers List

I will proceed to modifying the vote lists now.

General Announcements / [Survival] XP Boost
Jan 18, 2017, 06:15 PM


XP Boost was added to the premium shop! Plugin made by @AmusingThrone
You can buy a 24h 1.2x XP Boost for $10 up to a 3x XP Boost for $22.5

http://superfuntime.buycraft.net/category/851697

So, here's my thought. While we are having problems with Pixelmon not getting enough new players, we also are having problems with old players leaving because they are bored having done anything there is to do.


We have three options:
Option #1 - Full reset. Everyone starts over
Option #2 - Pokemon reset and 50% is taken of everyone's balance
Option #3 (Dpa's idea) -> Have people choose 6 pokemon they want to keep. All the others will be reset (the computers will be reset basically)
Option #4 Do nothing (condemn Pix to die a slow and painful death)


How we'll handle donations:
Fully reimburse donations up to the last 6 months
And then partial reimbursement for 7-12 months
11
Do you just hate swearing and people who curse? You can now block that!
Just turn your Personal Censor (plugin developed by @Nafi) on. It will censor more cursewords, with more and more being added each day (feel free to report via forum pm if a curse makes it across the censor)

Commands:
- /pcensor on (turn your censor on
- /pcensor off

NOTE: Personal Censor only blocks the bad words for you. So if you have the censor on and you type a bad word, it will not be censored.

This error occurs when Mojang's session servers are acting up, and it is NOT an issue from our server.
I've only learned this now for myself.

When this error occurs, try 5-10 times to reconnect and you should make it. It seems this error only pops up when the mojang servers are not completely down but are encountering problems

Inspired by @Delmoren I have added Boosters on SFT!
Check them out at http://superfuntime.buycraft.net/category/851697

The boosters last for 2 hours and apply to everyone online when bought.

Once again, thank you @Delmoren for your idea, I don't know how I haven't thought about it so far.
Link to original post: https://www.superfuntime.org/forum/index.php/topic,169472.0.html

More boosters (such as XP Boost) will be added when it's technically possible (eg: when @AmusingThrone or @darknuju or @Nafi make us a working XP boost plugin which also integrates into SFTMMO. I have talked to @AmusingThrone so far, but I'd like it if he coordinated with the other devs too on this one)

Additionally, a 10% sale has been added until the end of January!
14
Which means I'll start listening more to things that are backed by more than one person.

My immediate personal resolution for SFT:
- Stop giving so many second chances (i won't give any examples but it's obvious to everyone what I mean) and ban/detach from soneone once they start being toxic for the community

I'd also like to say that I think it's unfair hearing people say there's bias in the high ranks, when they don't have the access to see what is really going on.
It's in the human nature to be biased, but as @VirginianAE can probably confirm, the amount of drama / bias in the Manager+ team has greatly decreased in the last few months.
I know people expect us to fix things the moment they report, but from my point of view, as a server owner, I can't just demote the entire team and promote new people (not saying that's even the case any more, because it isn't), things are handled slowly, some times they take weeks, other times they take months but please know: WE ALWAYS LISTEN TO YOU. Due to our policy to handle things privately and not in public that may not be obvious but we have never downright ignored someone's complaints / feedback and we are always doing our best to work on that, and in about 90% of the cases, we have resolved the complaints within a reasonable timeframe. Again, @VirginianAE can confirm this one.

I am a very impulsive individual and that sometimes causes me to do things/say things i didn't mean/want to do, I am also working on that.

So yeah... that's all. Peace!

Quote
When someone holds a one-sided point of view, we accuse him or her of being prejudiced, or having a bias. Human beings on an individual basis are inclined to interpret situations in biased ways, often based on their cultural norms and beliefs. But there is another kind of bias, called cognitive bias, that all humans share. Cognitive bias is our tendency to make systematic decisions in certain circumstances based on cognitive factors rather than evidence. Human beings exhibit particular inherent errors in thinking when we process information. These errors are the result of genetic predisposition that has arisen over time as humans have evolved; in fact, you can see many of the same biases that humans display in rats, birds, and monkeys. Researchers who study decision making theorize that somewhere in our evolutionary past, many of these biases helped us to survive. For example, the negativity bias causes us to give more weight to negative experiences than positive ones. In the dangerous environment in which our ancestors lived, avoiding negative outcomes likely meant life or death; being especially concerned with avoiding the bad made our ancestors more likely to survive. Other biases may be the result of our brains having limited processing power with which to analyze information, and therefore taking shortcuts--called heuristics--that sometimes lead us to irrational conclusions.

Behavioral economist Dan Ariely puts it thusly: "We usually think of ourselves as sitting the driver's seat, with ultimate control over the decisions we made and the direction our life takes; but, alas, this perception has more to do with our desires--with how we want to view ourselves--than with reality." Bias affects everything we do: from deciding how to handle our money, to relating to other people, to even how we form memories of the past. Though many of these biases were beneficial in the past, these days they sometimes lead us to make big mistakes. Loss aversion, the cognitive bias that makes us strongly prefer avoiding losses to acquiring gains, causes many people to make awful economic decisions. Marketing executives use this to their advantage: you'll sign up for a free trial of a service and then be loathe to cancel it, avoiding a loss. Though we can't eradicate bias--it's far too deeply wired for that--we can try to be aware of it. As we learn more about these biases and where they come from, humans become better equipped to understand why we do the things we do.

The youtuber ImAnderZEL has approached me with a proposal: He is scheduling videos for his channel and has asked me if I would be interested for him to shoot a video of SFT. I will not discuss the exact details of this deal because he may want it to remain confidential but I'd like to say it's something SFT can afford and won't bankrupt us xD (really decent in my opinion)

As per our agreement, he is going to make a video of our Pixelmon server and one of our Survival server.

https://www.youtube.com/user/ImAnderZEL

So, just FYI, in case you see him on our servers, treat him well :)

General Announcements / SFT Fundraiser
Jan 05, 2017, 04:47 PM
Raised so far: $160.2/$210


Things are not exactly peachy for SFT, with pix being almost dead (and dpa being delayed in reviving it due to being gone and now having hi smonitor break) and Survival not doing so good for the start of 2017.
In order to try to get back on track, we need your help! We need to have a media presence (as well as have dpa back and working on Pix, which I am handling).
For that, I propose another fundraiser. This time we need $100 + $60 + $50 = $210.
For: Minestatus sponsored, Minepick sponsored and $50 for Project Wonderful ads.

We are extremely grateful to everyone that contributed last time and we hope this time to work as well.
To clarify: We need the money until the 10th and every donation from now on will be considered as towards the fundraiser.
To help, I have started a 20% discount on Survival/Pix/Creative

To clarify why we need this : A catastrophic decrease in Pix revenue together with a bad start for 2017 for survival.

The TTT server is back... for now.
However, unless I can find someone dedicated to maintain it / develop new content for it / staff it, I don't plan on keeping it online for more than a month.
Obviously, that person would have to be someone I trust and someone that knows about lua / designing addons for Garry's Mod / CSS / etc.

For now, enjoy!

Good news everyone! You can now gamble. Type /cf gui to see exisitng flips or /cf <amount> <heads/tails> to create a flip. The maximum amount you can bid is 10000 EmpBucks and the minimum is 500 EmpBucks.

Coin Flipper isi a plugin which allows you to virtually flip a coin with another player, effectively betting on it.

The /r/superfuntime subreddit is now alive again!
I have cleaned it up, using a new theme, and would like to revive it and make it even more active than before.
So visit https://www.reddit.com/r/superfuntime/ and tell us what you're up to!

My new year's resolution for SFT:

- Revive Pix @Dpa1991 has some work to do here (i'll help ofc)
- See Factions be done @saywhat2365 and @iLaxrv10 pls bruhs
- See Sabotage done @darknuju @AmusingThrone
- Fix SFTConomy Console Spam @fearthe1337  - nah, that's just a running joke xD


And most importantly:
- Gain new players
- Have more new servers started
- Erradicate and prevent from happening again all deviant behaviors such as children spreading nudes or children threatening other children with death / other things. I will crack down on that with all my powers, and I will not only ban these people but also contact their parents if that is possible to do (I believe it's the parent's responsibility to ensure their children is not some little shit who goes around threatening people or extorting them)

General Discussion / So, I was bored
Dec 25, 2016, 09:09 AM
So, I was bored and decided to further perfect some certain skills I have (which I swear I only use for good).
It all started with my curiosity on how to break locks a while ago. I watched a bunch of youtube videos, and I pretty much understood how locks work on the inside.
I broke a lock using two paperclips at work (the owner had lost the key so he asked the IT department for help, me and another coworker helped, but I was the one that finally managed to do it).

Today I decided to take on a bit more complicated task -> Duplicating a key.
I decided to start with my mailbox as it's a double sided lock, so if i can do that, I can surely duplicate normal, single sided locks..

I won't go into detail about how I managed to do this because it would teach you some skills i'd rather not teach you, but let's just say I used a pencil, a SIM card (full size), a pair of scissors and a nail file.

Stage 1 - About 50% done


Stage 2 - 100% done


Stage 3 - Key in lock


Stage 4 - Key twisted in lock (at this point I was able to open the mailbox on 1st attempt and lock it back up, and open it again, to make sure it wasn't just a fluke.


So yeah, I have an unique skillset. I can open locks with two paperclips, I can duplicate keys, I have mean IT skills, I'd make for a good secret agent (if anyone's looking, I have other unique skills/abilities/etc which would make me great for an undercover agent)

I would like to wish everyone happy holidays and to thank you all for being part of SFT (as well as former SFT players for choosing this awesome community. We are nearing our 7th year of existance, and I would like to thank everyone, from Guests to Owners for deciding to stick on SFT and make it a better place.
It's a time for forgiveness and acceptance and I implore you to do just that. (except where it's no longer possible to forgive and accept - such as in the cases of repeated rule breakers which did not understand to stop acting the way they are acting even after multiple warnings)

General Announcements / [Survival] Snowmen
Dec 18, 2016, 05:41 PM


Meet the holiday mob on Survival -> Snowman.
They drop milk, cookies and snowballs when killed, with a rare chance of dropping a totem of undying!
They are non-hostile mobs, which means they won't attack you and will only attack other aggresive mobs (Zombies, Skeletons, etc)

Let me know if you see one spawn in the wild! (need to know if they spawn properly)

PS: Sheer them for a cool surprise!
32
The Donator ranks, are currently the most broken things in the premium shop for Survival.
Not for the lack of trying, but when they were created, only a limited number of cosmetic perms/packages were available. Their pricing is completely broken and the perms they contain are either no longer available (like in the case of disguise perms - which they are now separated into packs) or just things that aren't very compelling to spend $50 on a rank.


I propose modifying these ranks' perks.

Current ranks:
Donator - $6
- Basic pet access (chicken, pig, sheep, cow, horse - basic farm animals)
- 5 ReName Tags

Contributor - $35
- Basic pet access
- Armor Locker
- Vanity Pack
- 10 ReName Tags

Benefactor - $45
- Basic pet access
- Armor Locker
- Vanity Pack
- Airhorns
- 5 Particle Gun Tags

Philanthropist - $50
- Basic pet system
- Armor Locker
- Vanity Pack
- Disguise + Disguise Expansion (old style)
- Airhorns
- 40 ReName tags


Eccentric - $70
- Basic pet system
- Disguise (old style)
- Armor Locker
- Vanity Pack
- Airhorns
- Badges

Sponsor - $80
- Airhorn
- Basic pet system
- Disguise + Expansion (old style)
- Armor Locker
- Hat plugin
- Vanity Pack
- Particle Trails


Proposed Changes / Replacements
Donator - $7
- Pets - Animals Pack ($7 in value)
- 5 ReName Tags ($2 in value)

Contributor - $20
- Pets - Animals Pack ($7 in value)
- Pets - Mobs Pack ($7 in value)

HOWEVER (and this is a big however). If we do make these changes, all the existing ranks will be modified too, meaning you will get these new perks instead of the old perks if you have any donator ranks. I will only do this if the majority of the people agree, so please vote in the poll only after reading thoroughly.

+ Added broadcast for vote site
+ Added broadcast for /buy
+ Added some color to the Info broadcasts! :D (to make them more noticeable)
34
Added VoteParty to the pix server with the following possible rewards (each in different chances)

- Apricorn

- Greatball
- Ultraball
- Masterball
- Rare Candy
- Random Pokemon
- Held items

A vote party will occur every 100 votes and everyone online will stand the chance to win 1-3 of the prizes mentioned above.
35
I am looking for people who wish to be EventHosts.
We will train these players on Survival and then give Pix a new breath of air with events being hosted again.
36
I want to do a flyer giveaway like the one I did for SFT, but specifically for SFT Pixelmon.
For that, I need a flyer advertising the SFT Pixelmon server.
Anyone willing to do that for me? Should fit on an A4 page, should have clear instructions on how to install the modpack, and the key strong points of our server.
I will add the QR code afterwards.
37
Sadly, it has gotten to a point where our SFT Pixelmon server seems to be dying. This is due to multiple reasons which I will rank based on their importance:
- An exploit that has been abused by a rival community (i shall not name, but staff from this community repeatedly abused that exploit) which allowed the attackers to spawn vast quantities of rare items/pokemon thus remove the interest of players from these rare things. We have partially patched this exploit and are working to further patch it or mitigate it's results
- The lack of new things to do mainly due to our inability to update (which, as repeatedly stated it's not for lack of trying). We now have realistic expectations that in 3-6 months we will be able to launch SFT Pixelmon 1.8 based around the latest version of the Pixelmon Mod. This however will be a separate server as the current world/mods are not compatible with that server. Seing as none of our current plugins will work on the new server, we have a lot of work ahead of us to convert plugins / develop new plugins for Sponge instead of spigot.
- A bug in the Technic Modpack ranking which puts us on the xth page even though we have more likes/runs than other modpacks ranked in the first 3 pages.

What we are immediately doing to try and stop the death of pix:
- Resolving these glitches as mentioned (as of yesterday, that is partially done)
- Placing ads to try to gain some new players (as of today, that has been done)
- Asking you guys what new experiences we could provide in this current version of the server, in order to make you stay (reply here)

But in order to save the server, we will have to ask you guys  (our greatest asset) to help us! It's now time to share the server to your friends and post on social media if you are even remotely interested in the server surviving. Also please donate! We cannot run a server with $30 / mo (which is what pix made this month)

NOTE: I did not talk to @Dpa1991 prior to making this post, so this post contains my views and my views only. I hope he agrees with what I said here, but ultimately he is the decision factor for Pix.

I am currently working on a Resource World for Survival.
What this will be - a small 1500x1500 world (compared to our current 5500x5500 worlds) which will be reset monthly.
This world will always have the newest minecraft features (even before the world resets).

However, it is with a twist! In this world, you cannot set warps, you cannot set home, you cannot have your house protected and while you are allowed to build, we won't copy your builds or anything like that. This is a world for two kinds of people: the miners and the thrill seekers.

PS: Did I mention PvP will always be ON and killing people will be fair game in this world ? (as well as weather being enabled).

Griefing is strictly prohibited but raiding is allowed (what's the difference? It's ok to go steal someone's things, and break a couple of blocks to gain entrance, it is NOT ok to destroy their whole house just for the sake of it)

How to get there -> /resourceworld

Coming soon! (within 24h).
PS: This current world will have a woodland mansion near spawn (which will be protected because they are rare and i want people to be able to visit them). Future worlds will always be random, at each month (at the reset).

In the next 48h I will add a code with 75% discount in the Survival premium shop. This is the first time I am doing this, it will be useable only once and it will be distributed on our twitter.

General Announcements / What's up?

What's up? What's bothering you? What should chance?

example of what i'm looking for:

- I think you should add <this> permission to gui shop on Survival
- I think you should nerf the spawn rate on pixelmon
- I think ... bla bla bla

One thing per person. Constructive criticism only.

PS: This is by all means not a "Tell us what you dislike" post, I'm just trying to find out some stuff I should tweak like for exmaple adding autoshops to voteshop and so on.

Remember the old pet plugin we used to have which we lost when 1.10 came? The one where you could ride the pets or wear them as a hat? It's back!
If you had pet perms, you will have them now as well, otherwise, I invite you to check out the new pet permission packs (split in 3 : mob pack, animal pack and special pack)

Check out Glow Arrows! -> http://superfuntime.buycraft.net/category/683942
These arrows will glow a configurable color when shot from a bow. Upon pickup, after firing, they will turn into normal arrows.

Other notable fixes:
+ Fixed armor effects finally! They now work properly.  Added new effect types and everyone that has armor effects gets them! (eg: totem  or llama spit)
+ Fixed Particle Gun Tags (the same, new particles)
+ Added Llama wand to fun wands


Thank you @darknuju for this update

I now have an updated SFTMMO and the update to 1.11 will go ahead, with an one day delay (tomorrow after work).
However, Slimefun is not yet updated and probably won't be by the time I update to 1.11.
This means we will have to do without slimefun until they update (hopefully not more than 1-2 weeks).

To prevent any item loss, please empty all your Slimefun backpacks in chests and put all your slimefun items in chests where you won't touch until Slimefun is back again!

Please tell everyone in-game as well about this!

You have ~20 hours to do this at the time of writing this post.

NOTE: This post concerns the Survival server

I would like to thank everyone involved in building the spawn town : Camster65, caykomarie,Green_giant,Djkirsh,dokmosh, TeraStorm, Caz10, dondougo1,  (sorry if I forgot anyone). They have done great work in bringing us one of the most detailed spawns SFT has ever seen.
We are not giving much information about the spawn yet, except for the teaser image above.


Now, regarding the world, for the first time in history, we have decided to allow players to claim/mine/etc villages/temples/etc (except ocean temples, those will still be protected for their potential of damaging the economy)
1/5 villages/temples/etc will be protected (for preservation), but the remaining 80% will be up for grabs (with a limit of 1/player)

Are you using a yahoo mail account? Ditch it now. My recommendation? Google. Also good, outlook. Anything really BUT NOT YAHOO!

Here's why:
- As an IT specialist, I am constantly asked by people to help them recover their e-mail accounts. With any other provider, if you forget your password/security questions, worst case scenario, you can talk to support, prove your identity and regain access. With yahoo, if you lose your security question their suggestion is "Create a new yahoo account".
- Security. Yahoo is extremely unsecure, with hundreds of millions of their user accounts being breached, and information about the account holders flowing across the internet
- Stupidity. They choose to be holier than the pope and block any e-mails if they even remotely think there may be something odd with them.

Example:
- The company I work for had a black friday sale. This resulted in a lot of order confirmations being sent and due to this yahoo decided to block our mail server for "spam activities". By definition, SPAM is an unsolicited e-mail, while this was very solicited seing as the users had posted the commands
- On SFT, we are constantly dealing with our e-mails which are sent by the forums being rejected by yahoo for bogus reasons. We meet google's security standards and we believe that should be more than enough. In fact, one could argue we are more secure than yahoo because our user database has yet to be breached xD


TL;DR - Switch from yahoo, it's a terrible service. Create a gmail account, set up auto forward form yahoo and enjoy a spam-free experience.

NOTE: I am not paid by Gmail or any other e-mail provider. I am just fed up with Yahoo's bullshit.
