I'm selling my PS4. It's a PAL model so this one is for Europeans, not americans.

You'll probably be like "Pfft, that's too much for a PS4" but first listen out.
This console has an upgraded 750 GB 7200RPM drive, a project skylight faceplate (rare) a limited edition Avenged Sevenfold SCUF controller and a few more goodies:

Bundle:
- Faceplate Project SkyLight Beta - Little Big Planet (rare)
- Controller SCUF Avenged Sevenfold (limited edition)
- Vertical Stand
- DriveClub Game

The giveaway was removed after @Dpa1991 posed some legality issues.
He believes this enters under gambling and we could get into trouble.

I apologize for any inconvenience

General Survival Discussions / SFTEggs
Apr 28, 2017, 07:52 PM
SFTEggs are special eggs that you get during VoteParty which give you some very awesome perks! (from fly permissions, to donator shop perks).
You unlock these eggs by performing various conditions (eg: walking 20000 steps). The condition and the reward will always be displayed on the egg.

Once you obtain the egg, you will have to place it into your /incubator for it to track progress. Your Incubator will have one slot by default, but you can purchase more slots (to progress more than one egg at the same time) from the premium shop

General Survival Discussions / Reddit Ads
Apr 28, 2017, 03:50 PM
I've placed a reddit ad in hopes of helping our community with playerbase, so please treat new players extra-nice (not that you don't treat them bad anyway)

Staff - maybe now it's time to be a bit more lenient so we can retain some of these players.
To our Redditor users who joined after seing the ad - I bow to you.



Early statistics.
Thank you @Stariieyed for loaning us our credit card (as they wouldn't take paypal) and @Dpa1991 for his participation

So, this is an idea that was debated in the Manager Chat.
Should we have a Community Ambassador?
What I mean by that is a non-staff player (Legend most likely) who is nominated by the people and elected by vote (forum poll). This person will then gain an insight into how SFT is ran, and will be able to express the voice of the people.

Effectively, what this means:
- The ambassador will have an open link to me via Hangouts where they can share any issues/concerns the community may have
- The ambassador will also have an open channel with the HoS team and the Manager+ team (will also be subjected to non-disclosure clauses - eg: if he discloses staff information he will lose this privilege)

For now we are voting whether we should have an Ambassador. In my opinion, Ambassadors should be per-server, so I will initiate this with Survival and if anyone else wishes, they can do the same on other servers.

Please vote in the poll!

General Announcements / About Super Fun Time
Apr 27, 2017, 10:23 AM
Support us on Patreon -> https://www.patreon.com/sftmedia

Super Fun Time is more than just a game server/gaming community. It's a community of people and friends. It's a place where people can talk without the fear of being judged and hated for who they are (whether it's their race, gender, sexual preference or any underlying conditions). I believe such a place should be cherished and appreciated by everyone.
We've had servers die before, and we jumped back on track a month later with a new popular server or with the revival of another server. However, Super Fun Time as a website and as a safe place for everyone will never die.

While there will be bad apples everywhere, the majority of the people here are extremely supporting, understanding and best of all not judgemental (as I have found myself when revealing my condition)

On that note, I want to ask you that you support Super Fun Time on Patreon and in this way, help us pay our monthly bills (web server, ssl certificate, dropbox subscription for backups, licenses - all these cost money. And these are all just to keep the website up).
I want you to know that I will personally never give up on Super Fun Time, and despite us having a rough time right now, I have faith in the creativity and dedication of everyone involved to turn things around. For that, we need your support, especially in these harsh times.

PS: If you want proof that this isn't just some bullshit to get you to donate and that I really mean it, please know I myself support Super Fun Time on Patreon and have repeatedly paid from my own pocket for ads/other services for SFT. You can easily see that on Patreon, by checking the list of supporters.

Apr 27, 2017, 06:15 AM
Please suggest games that you think SFT should host.

Requirements:
- Must have a dedicated server (So Overwatch/Rocket League etc are out of the question)
- Must be played by more than a few players on SFT

General Discussion / [Poll 1] 2017 Census
Apr 26, 2017, 06:55 PM
I decided to create a Census to get to know our playerbase a bit better.
Please vote in the poll as truthfully as you can.  Every two days a new poll will be posted until we have the results for the following questions:

Where are you from?


What age group do you belong in? >Current question<

What gender are you?

What device do you use the most on SFT?

NOTE: I'd like at least 50 people voting for each poll to be conclusive.

Ok so, everyone thinks that being an Owner is like being an omni-potent god.
I can't speak for @Dpa1991 or @saywhat2365 so I'll talk for myself, and about Survival.

Yes, I am all powerful (not really, read on), I decide who gets banned and who doesn't (like if you're gonna piss me off, you betcha you'll get banned) but for most big impacting decisions, I am like a CEO and the Manager+ team is like my board of directors. Ultimately if I want to do something and they're like "nope." then you bet I'm not gonna go past them. Could I go past them? Yeah and I do that.. very rarely though because going over their heads pisses them off and that's how you get resignations and an unhappy board of directors.

So yes, while I am the big guy on Survival, I still have my board of directors to go past and ultimately, for decisions affecting SFT, my super board of directors (Dpa and saywhat, which can be ruthless :P

PS: I'm Steve Jobs. Deal with it.  (PS: If you haven't figured out already, all these titles like Dear Leader, Father of Dragons and so on are jokes. I don't actually think of myself like a god. It's just a joke. I kept putting silier and silier things in my title so people would realize it's a joke but some people still think I'm just a megalomaniac)



NOTE: I consider Dpa and saywhat as my equals. I may step on their toes some times, although not so any more, but I consider them as equals and in my book they are as much owners as I am.

Hi guys,

I need your help. First of all, I want you to thoroughly read this post and respect the rules if you wish to be of help, otherwise, be prepared to receive forum warnings.

In order to reply to this post:
- You must have played on Survival for at least 1h in the past 2 weeks
- You must have a decent understanding of SFT and Survival
- You must not have any recent permanent bans (no permanent bans in the past 6 months)
- If you report anything about a staff member or staff in general, have proof. If you don't have proof, don't post, and save proof for next time.


Basically I want to hear feedback from our core players: The ones that play on Survival actively, that weren't banned recently and that are decent, rule-abiding netizens. I don't want to hear from the troublemakers, from the people only staying on SFT for the drama they create and perpetuate.

Summarize in one sentence, what we could do better for Survival (this post is adressed to Survival in special). Please stay away from speculation. Limit to things you know and think could be improved. (example of speculation: I think the staff team is immature)

NOTE: Any post not meeting my very clear guidelines will be punished by warning, post removal and ban on repeated offenses. Any post meeting my guidelines will get cookies.
PS: This may sound harsh, but I'd rather not have a server at all rather than have a server filled with people who live and breathe for drama. This includes people who have a complete lack of respect for the players and staff. Even in this time of need for Survival, I'd like to invite you to make up your mind: You are either with sft, in which case you will stop acting like you are against SFT, or you are against SFT in which case you have no place of being here. I won't name anyone or give any examples.

I've received a complaint from a player I shall not mention. It involves something @TheStarNomad✯ did jokingly:




Here's what the player had to say:

Quote from: Anonymous
I know this in a joke but a year ago I would never see an  admin doing this shouldn't they lead by example. I know it's a joke but is it really mature
You make the legends re apply to see who can be trusted and who is worth the rank but I feel that immature staff is a much larger problem. Again I do understand it's a joke but it's still not acceptable.  This is one of the main reasons why I quit the server and have been on once <removed to not make identifiable> in nearly <removed to not make identifiable> months
It's not just this example it's the whole staff team who are thrown into positions where quite frankly they don't know what they're doing and it's not always their fault
You want to know why so many old players don't play anymore that is basically the reason
I have a few questions:
- In my opinion Ender did nothing wrong here, she just had some fun.... on a game server where it's normal to have fun. She didn't use any insults or anything like that.
- What is the threshold between a staff member playing and one being labeled immature? What is/should be socially acceptable and what isn't/should not be?
- Did many old players leave because staff were having fun, without anyone being hurt in the process? If so I'm legitimately shocked and I believe people should understand when a staff member is joking/unwiding and when one is immature.
- Did this or something similar to it bother you? Why? Did you report it to anyone? Why not ?

Feel free to comment as I want to get to the bottom of this.

Do you want this as a bungee server?

This is a pvp minigame inspired by the famous Age Of Empire game from 2000. The objective is to build a city by collecting resources and then attack the other empires.The game consists of 4 teams but the game can start with 2 players
17
Here's a list of actions I will take beginning now to try and bring Survival back on track.

#1. Step up our advertisement game, even if it means covering from my own pocket. I have no issue with paying from my own pocket to promote SFT and thankfully my wage now makes me afford that. So effective immediately, I have placed a bid on the best minecraft server listing website for a sponsored slot (bidding $205). It ends in a day.
I've also ramped up our advertising on Project Wonderful (in case you don't know what that is, it's basically a place which allows me to bid on our ads showing up on various sites, all which feature Minecraft content, so a prime target for new players. I also plan on starting either a Reddit or a Twitter campaign. Overall, I estimate spending about $400 on ads this month (we made $311 this month so far, so I assume I'm mostly going to cover that from my own pocket)

#2 Develop our portfolio - Look into adding more servers to the network to give players what they might like in order to retain more players. To this effect Prison is being developed by @blalp and we are considering other projects such as a minigame server.

#3 Identify weak areas on Survival which need to be fixed. @TheOfficialMiner  - you are in charge. Get in there, talk to people, find out what their complaints are and get back to me with an aggregated report.

#4 Solidify my position on a full reset. Which I am doing right now: There won't be a full reset for now. Yes, for now. Because I can never say without reasonable doubt that I won't want to do a reset in 6 months or 12 or 5 years. That possibility is always there, just as it always was. But for now there won't be a reset, I encourage everyone to get back in-game and build. Even if we do make a reset, I guarantee I will come up with a way for you to still be able to visit your own builds (either by offering the old worlds for download, or by setting up srvdev as a museum, which people can visit any time). Also, in the event of a full reset, I can guarantee we will transfer items without any value but with sentimental value. However, like I said, there will be no reset for now. I would like to add however, that when I will think that there is the time for a reset and I think the benefits outweigh the risks, I reserve the right to do it without asking anyone for a poll.  Ultimately my first goal is to ensure the survival of the survival server, and that may mean stepping on some toes in the process, something I am not afraid to do. I did that in the past, and it proved to be a succesful move. The only reason I am not doing it now is because I don't think the benefits outweigh the risks.

#5 Punish anyone speculating / spreading misinformation or false rumors about the full reset. There won't be a full reset for now, so anyone saying otherwise, will be punished as I see fit. I encourage the staff to apply this rule

#6 The attitude of some older players needs to change. They either need to show some respect or be punished appropriately (whether that means losing their ranks or whatever). Gone is the time when I will allow legends to make a circus. Legend should be a respectable rank and I expect the bearers of this rank to comply.

#7 Tweak the vote system. Vote Party is the future! In time, we will give up the current VoteRewards system and only remain with VoteParty to become fully EULA compliant. To that respect, I've made some changes to VoteParty:
-Added SteveCo Crates 51,52
-Added Totem of Undying (1/4 rarity)
-Added nether star (1/64 rarity)
-Added mending enchantment book (1/8 rarity)
-Added frost walker enchantment book (1/8 rarity)
-Added end rod (1/4 rarity)
-Tweaked various drops and drop chances

Thank you and feel free to comment/suggest a better way of doing things.

NOTE: I want to stress out that we really need donations to pay our bills. I would like to get to the bottom of why people aren't donating and what I can do about that. If you are a former donator that no longer donates, please drop me a PM explaining why, and most importantly, what I can do to get your interest again.

Donate to ALTSO -> https://altso.kindful.com/campaigns/262483?utf8=%E2%9C%93&amount=25

Donations are important for Super Fun Time as they help us pay our bills. However,  for the children that benefit form the charity I'll mention below, this can literally be the difference between a normal life and a life full of difficulties.

A Leg To Stand On (ALTSO) is a non-profit providing life-changing treatment to children with limb disabilities in the developing world. By offering prosthetic limbs, mobility aids and corrective surgery to children who would otherwise go untreated, we provide each patient the chance to get an eduction, live a self-sufficient life and positively impact their families and their societies by challenging traditional views of disability. For more on ALTSO's impact check out our Cool Kid series here https://www.altso.org/meetthekids.



If you wish to get involved in another way, perhaps to spread awareness or if you think you could otherwise help, reach out to Beth Ann Deadmond (Director of Development)

Good news everyone!
Mob Arena now has wolves and horses integrated into the kits!
Come on by at /ama join default to test it out!

NOTE: You shouldn't lose any items or XP. It was tested by me. If you want to be sure, take a screenshot before playing so your xp levels and inv is visible.

This is my coming out post. I'm coming out from a closet, but not THAT closet.
Gather round kids, as you will learn the reason I never show my face and speak with anyone on SFT.

I suffer from a condition caused by the pituitary gland. Basically, as a kid, my growth hormones stopped well.. doing their thing, and that has caused me to basically stop growing up. That always resulted in me looking a lot younger than I was. Highschool? Look like a primary schooler. College? Look like a freshman in highschool. 34 years old? Look like a 14 year old and sound like one.

This is not a joke and can be attested by @Dpa1991 who has talked to me and seen me.
This took me 6 fucking years to say and I'm glad I finally got it out. If you want to make fun of me, I'm not gonna stand for that shit. I was made fun of all my life, I was bullied in school because of that and even had a suicide attempt in highschool because of that, until I finally discovered my lord and savior weed and I stopped giving a fuck.

That's all I got in me for now, taking questions if you have any. No, I will not post a picture / speak in public for the forseable future. At least not on anyone's terms but my own.

22
I need to know what games you play that we could host servers for (eg: that have dedicated server files). PC games only please.
23
What would be your first action if you took over SFT?
Can be something serious, silly, funny, etc.
24
Sadly, it seems like radiationisland was a flop as only a  handful of people actually bought islands there.
If anyone bought islands, please post here saying how much you spent on the islands and the coordinates of your builds (use /getpos to get them).
Judging by the number of people who are situated there, I will decide between:

- Reducing the size of radiationisland DRASTICALLY, removing aggresive mobs from that world and keeping it
OR
- Removing it, re-imbursing everyone and potentially transferring their builds (provided they aren't huuuuge)

General Discussion / Super Fun Time + Charity
Apr 19, 2017, 05:08 AM
I will soon do a post on front page asking you guys to donate to "A leg to stand on" for the front page.
Before I do, I want to make this as transparent as possible, so here's how I found out about them (they e-mailed us after I sent the newsletter):

Quote from: ALTSO
Hi - My name is Beth Ann and I believe I'm on this list because your server once did a donation for a charity and we (A Leg To Stand On) were one of the charities in the running. We ended up not winning the voting contest, but thought I reach out to see if you guys were planning on doing anything like this in the future.

A Leg To Stand On (ALTSO) is a New York based non-profit organization that provides children with limb disabilities in the developing world with orthopedic care they need - and we have already provided nearly 16,000 children with treatment since 2003. This means we are offering prosthetic limbs, orthotic braces, mobility aids, corrective surgery and rehabilitation to some of the most vulnerable children in the world to give them the opportunity to gain or regain their mobility. Mobility offers these children the ability to walk the average 3 miles to and from school to earn an education, to find employment later in life and live self-sufficient lives.

I'd love to chat with you or whoever might be best about how we could do something fun. We could do a competition between different factions on the server or just have a general goal. If you are already collecting funds it could be a dual campaign where 50% goes to you and 50% goes to charity, etc...

If this is something you might be interested in please feel free to reach out. I'd love to chat more!

Best,
Beth Ann

I asked them to provide a brief description of their Charity and links where people can pay:

Quote from: ALTSO
That sounds awesome!

We typically don't use Paypal because they take about 5% in fees so instead we use our better negotiated credit card fees of 3% through our account with Stripe. That link is here and at any point in time will tell me how much has been raised through that link, if you'd like any updates. But, if you think that will deter people from giving, let me know and I can work on setting up a donation link via paypal instead.

Here is the description:

I am waiting for them to provide me with some links (for payment) waiting for you to check them out and hear your input before I make the front page post. Until then, you can research them and make an idea for yourself if their cause is worthy (I personally think it is)

I want you to debate (using arguments and facts) on how a full reset would affect the Survival server (eg: why a full reset would be good/bad, depending on what you think). If you can't participate with a calm, constructive debate, don't participate.

Questions to keep in mind:
- If I allowed people to download the current worlds, would a full reset then be acceptable?
- If I performed a full reset, would you leave?
- What are alternatives to a full reset which would help us with playerbase? (player retention as well)
28
Poll inside, vote please!

I am looking for a good place to advertise. We have a $150 budget for advertising and I'd like to put it to the best use possible (we already have running ads on project wonderful, so I want this to actually make an impact)

Possibilities:
- Reddit
- Facebook
- Youtube (advertising the "Super Fun Time is awesome video)
- Paying a smaller (20k+ subs) youtuber to make a vid for us (don't know any, suggest if you have and I'll approach them)

Thank you and looking forward for your input!

Hi everyone, after the sadness and emptiness that Stafida's passing left, I felt the need to cover that with something:
Meet Cocoa (his owners used to call him Coco but I added an a to still keep it similar)
He's a 8 year old African Grey male(?). He's been an "office pet" for this office where the owner wanted to get a bird to satisfy his curiosity. Sadly, they became more and more busy, more and more away and due to lack of time / nobody to spend time with the bird, they decided to give it away before it develops psychical issues).

He likes to immitate a ton of sounds from a phone ringing, to the samsung whistle text tone, to whatsapp tones and also to talk (let's play, hello?, etc) and to wave when you say goodbye xD

Will keep you posted over the following days, it takes a bit to bond with a grey, especially if it had a previous owner.




33
TNTWars is back with the help of @abandoncaptian and @darknuju
The server has been reduced to 32 slots. We need donations to pay bills, if we don't receive donations, we won't be able to pay bills.

PS: Reducing the server to 32 slots doesn't save any money so this isn't a solution to any problem.  It would be greatly appreciated if you could donate or if you can't, help by inviting players / posting on social media. Thanks.
34
I'm considering starting a pay to play survival-like server.
I'm thinking something very close to vanilla with no economy, no mmo/donator perks, and mostly just the base plugins (protection, with a claim system so no staff is needed, maybe chest protection)

I am thinking $5 / mo to make this worth hosting for us.
Let me know if you think this would be a good idea, whether you'd pay $5 / mo to play on it and what it should / should not have.

NOTE: Since there will be no economy, I can enable pretty much anything: pistons, dispensers, etc

NOTE: This is just an idea. If you don't like it just say it. I am not going to make this if it doesn't have enough support.
Why? Because it's what I can do and because we have room for it.

Pocket Minecraft / Good news
Apr 10, 2017, 04:49 AM
Well this doesn't directly affect you, the players, but I have set up a dev server for @xQuicScopex✪ and @BluetigerESW to help them test plugins they develop and updates.
This should mean fewer restarts and faster updates xD

I am waiting for them to contact me to give them access. Just FYI.
36
I want to add a new rank that is based on total votes.
How many votes should it be awarded at ? (I'm thinking minimum 1000, maybe more).
What should the rank be named? What colors? What perks?

I want it to be about legend level. We can then expand it like legend.
37
For those of you that already have wand perms:
- The wand perms have been fixed. I apologize that you were't able to spawn wands for the past few days, it was due to a plugin update and my delay in fixing the perms

For those of you that are considering buying wands
- I have split the wands package into two packages (each containing 7 wands).  Thus, you can buy wands more affordable now! Also we have two new wands!
http://superfuntime.buycraft.net/category/683943

NOTE: Two new wands were added: Vex wand and Kebab wand. If you already own Wand perms, you will get these as well, otherwise, they are in Wand Pack #2

General Discussion / Getting a new bird buddy
Apr 08, 2017, 06:25 AM
As some of you may know, I am working on getting an African Gray parrot (Stafida's passing left a huge empty hole)

The living accomodations
- Cage (a rather big one at 94,5 x 81 x 156 cm)
- Perches, branches, toys, swings, food bowls (see picture below)
- UV Lamp and Bulb (parrots need UV light in order to metabolize Calcium and other vitamins)
- Travel Cage (for vet visits, travelling and as a sleeping cage so I can have him sleep in other rooms when there is noise in his normal place)

The food
Pellets, Seeds, Treats, Cuttlebone

I will probably need a baby formula and a feeding syringe, but I'm waiting for the breeder to give me instructions before buying anything.

The parrot
I've talked to a local breeder who has 3 babies born in February 2017. They have identification rings and the breeder seems legit. The only catch is that I will have to hand-feed them for 1-2 more weeks and then wean them, which kind of terrifies me. The breeder says that hand feeding by the future owner is strongly recommended to ensure a better chance of bonding
The babies are about 9 weeks of age, so the idea is that I go around thursday/friday to check them out and if I like what I see, maybe come home with one of them.

Pictures:
African Grey parrot at ~9 weeks (pic taken from the internet)


My current cage setup (with toys, perches, food bowls. I will get lots more toys soon)


Travel cage (pic taken from the internet)


UV Lamp (pic taken from the internet)



That said, I'm kinda scared about hand feeding the baby grey. I'm like wat? How do I do that? I hope the breeder will explain well xD He says getting them as babies is important as that's how they bond with you the easiest.

PS: The bird is $850, the cage was $500. Now you see why I'm broke? xD

General Discussion / Pretty meh

I'm feeling pretty meh.
This new job is cool, i get to learn more stuff that I like, and it's paid good (double what I used to make), but this schedule is killing me.... In the summer I work from 11:30 to 8:30. That translates to leaving home at 10:30 and getting home at 9-9:30 PM.
That means I have very little time for myself and for SFT and i feel like that sucks because it's happening in a time when SFT needs me the most. That $0/$20 i keep seing every day on Survival at /w1 is also making me more distressed.
Just wanted to share with you my current mood/state.

Invite your friends on SFT (any server) and you will earn up to 100k EmpBucks (read below)

How it works:
- Get a player on the server (player must have less than 4h uptime when you are referring him)
- Post a screenshot of your friend's uptime (which will have to be less than 4h uptime)
- You will win 25k EmpBucks when your friend joins the server and after you post the screenshot (your friend will need to make a forum account and confirm you invited him by replying to your post)
- Post another screenshot when your friend reaches Member. You will gain another 75k EmpBucks
- A person cannot be referred by more than one person. Please don't try to cheat the system. Abuse will be punished!


NOTE: The players you invite don't HAVE to be your friends. As long as you don't break any rules when advertising (eg: don't advertise our server where not allowed), you are allowed to claim as many rewards as possible
@TheOfficialMiner - Please oversee this and make sure prizes are delivered when I'll unavoidably forget about this post :D

Allows you to set any block as a trail for your bow. When you fire an arrow, a trail will follow the arrow, and wherever the arrow lands, will turn into a "particle fountain" (the arrow will constantly be emitting particles until removed)
Usage: /arrow (choose a trail), /arrow type (changes between trail mode and particle fountain mode)

+ Added blood particles for PvP
+ Disabled PvPManager in World3 and nether (should help with minigames, this means pvp is always on in these worlds unless disabled by worldguard)

Good news everyone! MobCatcher is back!
If you don't remember it, it's a plugin that allows you to catch almost any mob (except wither/dragon/etc) by throwing an egg at it. The chances will vary from 50% to 100% based on mob type, and the cost of a succesful catch is 5k EmpBucks for a peaceful mob or 10k EmpBucks for a hostile mob.
How to catch mobs? It's simple -> Throw a chicken egg at a mob. Then that mob dissapears and a mob egg of its type will appear. Get that egg, and to spawn it back, right-click it on the ground

Enjoy!

General Announcements / Under new management
Apr 01, 2017, 09:27 AM
Hi everyone,
I'm sorry to say that my time with SFT has come to an end. SFT is now under new management. I've sold all SFT assets to a third party. The buyer decided to remain anonymous for the time being so it will not be disclosed.
@Dpa1991 @saywhat2365 @fearthe1337  - I'm sorry you had to find out this way

This was a great journey and I'm sorry it had to come to an end like this.

Spoiler: Thank You • show
April fools

Just a small 400 mbps ddos attack, followed by an even smaller 100mbps ddos attack. I see what you did there...

Quote from: CNN
The House of Representatives voted Tuesday to repeal Internet privacy protections that were approved by the Federal Communications Commission in the final days of the Obama administration.
The Senate voted along party lines to undo the rules last week. The resolution now goes to Trump's desk. The White House said Tuesday it "strongly supports" the repeal.
The rules, which had not yet gone into effect, would have required Internet service providers to get your permission before collecting and sharing your data. The providers have data on your web browsing history, app usage and geo-location.
Providers would also have been required to notify customers about the types of information collected and shared.

The privacy rules were intended to give consumers extra control over their personal data online at a time when everything from smartphones to refrigerators can be connected to the Internet.
Opponents of the privacy rules argued it would place an undue burden on broadband providers while leaving large Internet companies like Facebook (FB, Tech30) and Google (GOOGL, Tech30) free to collect user data without asking permission.
Representative Michael Burgess, a Republican, described the rules as "duplicative regulation" on the House floor and said the repeal would "level the playing field for an increasingly anti-competitive market."
But rather than apply similar protections to more businesses, the Republican-controlled Congress voted to scrap the rules entirely.
Democrats and privacy advocates have argued this approach effectively hands over the customer's personal information to the highest bidder.
"It totally wipes out privacy protections for consumers on the Internet," Democratic Representative Anna Eshoo said on the floor. "I don't want anyone to take my information and sell it to someone and make a ton of money off of it just because they can get their mitts on it."
Michael Capuano, a Democratic Representative, took it one step further. "Just last week, I bought underwear on the internet," he said. "Why should you know what size I take, or the color, or any of that information?

Many broadband providers already share some of their customers' browsing behavior with advertisers. Providers typically offer the choice to opt out, but consumers may not even be aware of this data collection -- let alone how to get out of it.
With Facebook and Google, weary users may choose to limit their activity on the sites or switch to rival services. But switching providers is often difficult, as is hiding your Internet activity from your Internet provider.
"Most people can't simply walk away from their Internet service provider," says Neema Singh Guliani, legislative counsel at the ACLU. "They need the Internet and they may not have another option."
A virtual private network, or VPN, is one option to protect your online activity. One service, NordVPN, says it has seen a "sharp increase" in consumer interest in the days since the Senate vote.

The repeal is a big win for large providers like AT&T (T, Tech30) and Verizon (VZ, Tech30). They have bet billions on content, including AT&T's pending acquisition of Time Warner, the parent company of CNN.
This content can potentially be paired with subscriber data to build up lucrative targeted advertising businesses that compete with Google and Facebook.
"I don't think of it as game over," says Guliani, who predicts Republicans will face pushback from their constituents for the privacy vote. "I think of it as a setback."
