Quote from: Aymaneto on May 27, 2019, 12:35 amHonestly I don't think you should tell staff what to do and how to do their jobs, this will be handled professionally and I think this post should not have been made in the first place to avoid unnecessary drama.

This strikes me as a strange, head in the sand, kind of attitude.

Whilst this was all occurring several people online notably including delamaire stated how staff act differently towards players due to their rank, mainly towards guests.

As I am sure you are aware the server has experienced a drop in player base over recent years. One of the main reasons for that is the fact new players just do not stay, and if you take this attitude towards situations like this and don't listen to experienced players, ones with ideas then you aren't going to get any player base back.

No one is saying it can't be dealt with professionally, but it may be able to be dealt with better.

Aside from not seeming fair imo, situations like this and others are not helping the player base grow. Hypothetically, if the player in question is innocent and didn't know other more experienced players on the server you've just lost a potential player who has sunk a few hours into the game, the ones who would be ideal to turn into long-standing server members.

Oh boy oh boy  :-\


I can second what ome said about the x-ray system and the staff don't seem to use 'innocent until proven guilty' anymore.

IGN: T4Tom2
Survial uptime: 1031h on survival and 1036h total
Can you get 6 hours of uptime on Survival each week? I have 24hr uptime this week you you tell me  :laugh:
Have you been banned before? If yes, why should we overlook this? I was banned back in 2013 for a misunderstanding for which i was unbanned with no conseuqences and I got a ban in mid 2016 when my friend used my account, unbanned with no consequences
Do you have or can you get a Skype? I do indeed have skype yes.
Are you applying to be JMod or EventHost or both? If EventHost, will you be able to host 25 events per week? With 24h uptime in one week, i could almost host an event an hour and still make the 25 events  ;)

Sidenote: im a fun member of the community who enjoys the light hearted side of things :P

:) Thanks Tow!

Chan, I don't understand.

One minute your calling for a reset to change SFT and 'save it'

The next you're saying how much of a good direction SFT is headed?

Quote from: Tombo_ on Mar 14, 2017, 07:49 pmSurvival issues for me consist of too strict staffing. Most definitely a bias opinion but valid nonetheless ;) Host team still needs fixing and a greater variety of events should be hosted.

Probably wasted my time typing as most of these kinds of posts I find result in very little. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Agree with this point of view but I would like to add that I don't even believe all staff members know the rules of the server, it took me 15 minutes to convince a JMod, a Mod and a specialist (although the specialist did admit to very rarely being active) that there had been a rule change in place for OVER 2 MONTHS and yet they still hadn't been informed/realised. Only my opinion but id be absolutley shocked if i found out that members of the staff team didnt know the server rules which they claim to enforce.
I'd love to have actionable info but let's look at this post. You told me a that staff are strict and that they don't know rules but did not provide any sort of identifiable information I can act on such as the name of the staff members not knowing the rules or why you think the staff is strict

I thought naming and shaming staff members on a public post seemed a bit harsh to me. I agree let's not generalise but don't target specific people. If you PM me Tow I can go into more detail

Quote from: MrChanango on Mar 13, 2017, 11:05 pm- I know the server kind've went over this and wasn't really in favor for it. BUT, Personally I would be all for a Full reset. Obviously I know this would cause havoc for some of the richer players, but it would refrain from all of this "super-op-non-survival-survival server" stuff.

World war 3 engage! A full reset would just drop the player count even more, i'm not sure it'd do anything for SFT at this point except make the survival server a ghost town. And even if it didn't, players would have good tools in days and make tons of money pretty quickly.

A full server reset would have no positive effects upon the server. The problem isn't that new players feel disadvantaged because of the wealth of other players, but retaining players is the problem. If 10-20% of new players that actually joined the server stayed as consistent players the player base would shoot up to a reasonable size, and I believe that the most effective way to do this would be to have staff working to give new players tips, tricks and help with things such as rules, commands etc or just refer them to /warp guide (however this desperatley needs updating).

If the staff spent less time enforcing not needless but less harmful rules such as placing offensive signs in their own homes where very few if any other people will see it (obviously dont exclude every sign containing a profanity, use common sense, but if you can swear in global chat, why not on a sign in your own home?
P.S just an example, if staff shifted their general focus to helping new players, im sure some of the older players too will realise that the need to get them to stay is just a little bit more important than ours.

Personally a server reset would ruin the game for me. Im sure many other players have built up a reasonable wealth and set of housing and resetting the game would remove any reason for me to stay around.
