Added a link to the new "How bans will be issued post" as it is important for players to understand how decisions are made.

Also added rule 8. No ban evading/talking in discord while banned.

Hello all,

Thank you for your patience as we continue to work on the factions server and player's experience. This post is to address confusion around warnings from staff members as well as time bans.


For future reference, this is how punishments/bans will be issued and dealt with:
- Players are tracked to see how many warnings they have had. If a staff member warns a player for an issue in game, they will attempt to check to see if that player has been warned before, if so, their punishment may result in a ban, even if the issue is mild, as they have been warned lots of times before.

- If a staff member cannot see the player has been warned, so just warns them for the incident, another staff member may correct this decision later on and the player will be discussed with the FMod+ team. If the FMod+ team deems it fit that this player should have been banned for the incident due to past offences and warnings which may have gone unmentioned, this player will be banned.

- If a player wishes to dispute a ban, they should either place an unban request on forums under "other servers", or in the case of a time ban attempt to contact the member of staff that banned them on discord for clarification on the ban or to dispute the claim. Please do not contact different members of staff regarding the issue. If the member of staff who banned you needs assistance, they may contact the FMod+ team on how to continue and advice towards your ban. All bans will be discussed openly with the staff team before action is taken regarding disputes.

- Some minor incidents only require a verbal warning or a kick. However, if you continue to get these, you may eventually receive a ban for the collection of minor incidents that you have been involved in. Please bear this in mind when you feel you have been banned for a small/minor issue.



A final note: Generally, a staff members decision is final, even if the staff member who banned you was not the member of staff who dealt with an incident (as you may have received prior warnings who the original staff member was not aware of). Please act maturely and responsibly when disputing bans and don't harass/insult staff over their decision - There may have been more to it than what you think.



As always, our discord factions suggestion board is open for discussion and we appreciate your input.

- SFT Factions Staff Team

Quote from: Happysheep102 on May 13, 2020, 12:11 AM- The faction size limit being decreased.

Does this mean that the amount of members in a faction is being decreased? If so, how many members are allowed in a faction?

 :christmaspig:

Yes this is correct. The new proposed number is 8 I believe (don't quote me on that as it may change but itll be around this figure).

Ah, Okay. Thanks for your work on factions. :)

Np ;)

bruh that's news
Tbh its kinda a slap in the face for everyone who grinded, especially those who donated for the double mcmmo xp events
imo, not that huge of a deal. part of the reason people quit was because there was nothing left to grind for. resetting mcmmo gives another reason to grind and spend time on the server. Thats just my opinion tho, i can deffo see where you're coming from.

Agree with both sides to this. Unfortunately it's got to be done to preserve the life of the server.

The Factions Staff team can't always man the server 100% of the time. As a result, some incidents may occur without us knowing. Whether someone was particularly offensive in chat, you suspect someone of cheating (such as X-Ray or auto-clicking) or are breaking any server rules, please report them to a member of staff.

For any chat related issues, please speak to a CMod+ as soon as possible and they will investigate.

For any other issues, please speak to an FMod+.

You can report players on discord directly to a member of staff, or by making a post in this board.

You must have screenshot evidence of rule-breakers, we cannot investigate an incident without evidence or proof.

As a further note, if disciplinary action is taken against you or another player, the staff member's decision is final. Disciplinary action (such as time bans/mutes) are done so based on sufficient evidence and reports. The staff team will give out punishments that they deem appropriate. The staff team will thoroughly investigate before taking action against a player, so please don't complain that someone wasn't banned for enough time/was banned for too much time as you may not have seen the full picture/all the evidence.

Please respect a staff member's judgment but feel free to appeal if you have a clear and valid reason why you deem your ban to be unfair.

Please be respectful with reports in this board and provide evidence!

Dear all,

The Factions server (we hope) will be reset on Friday 15th May. This will be a full reset (The world, money, MCMMO etc).

We have done this as we feel we need to start afresh with a few things, the first round of Factions was good, but some Factions/Players became too OP too quickly.

As a result, there will be new changes occurring after the reset, some of these include:
- The faction size limit being decreased.
- The shop prices being altered.
- The rules on bases being updated.
- Potential MCMMO & Plugin alterations.

Specifics and more details will be announced soon.

Many thanks!

The server rules have been updated following this post.

Updated the chat rules to cover some grey areas  ;)

Me and the fellow faction's staff are having a hard time at the moment governing the chat on the Factions server. We would like to remind players that the server was shut down for a reason last time, we do not want a repeat of this again.

A number of players have been banned for 24 - 48 hours today. This is for general toxic behaviour and offensive comments in chat. Players are being very hard on staff and we get bombarded with complaints whether we punish people or not. Those who have been banned have been for sufficient reasons with sufficient evidence. You have been pushing the rules and you know it.

This period of 48 hours is an opportunity for the server to calm down and start again on Saturday with a clean slate.

Please, for future reference, while provoking is allowed, if a player is distressed and asks you to stop and/or a staff member tells you to stop and you continue to provoke, this will result in time bans.

Also to note, if you see abusive language/bullying or something of concern in public chat, please do not engage with it and inform ANY MEMBER of the Factions staff (CMod+ for chat issues, FMod+ for more serious issues) and it will be investigated. Screenshot evidence must be included with reports

Please take this time to calm down, take a day off and come back with a clean slate on Saturday. We won't hold grudges as we are trying to reduce the heat that is currently present on the server.

//The Factions Staff Team.

Quote from: Scotmid on Jan 02, 2020, 01:51 PMSince you never ruled it out from the previous post,

Factions

Why not include factions despite the fact it was the most popular option from your original post. You also talked about introducing a new PVP system which would be perfect for factions. Factions was suggested and liked by an overwhelming majority.

(I've made a separate post about this in Survival Discussions)
15
I can't actually suggest anything (helpful ik). But this is my view of survival.

You have a huge amount of new players joining the server daily. Your problem is not getting new players, its keeping them. New players join, build for a few hours and get bored. I myself and many long term players also feel the same. I'll give an example. I've spent the last few months building a huge auto shop and village. It kept me occupied and playing lots for ages. However now it is finished, I have nothing to do, nothing really that I want to build. Survival (as a concept) gets boring very quickly.

Survival has a purpose, you build, you survive, if I was you, leave it be. Have a different minecraft server to bring player interest such as Pixelmon, Prison, Factions.

Back when I used to play a lot more, it was a joy to rotate between the different SFT minecraft servers as they were all so different and kept players interested. I divided my time up between them all.

Don't break survival, its the lack of options that's the problem.

Quote from: _0i on Jan 02, 2020, 01:32 PMI think maybe having more player to player interactions would be cool, but I feel like a lot of it is just how many players there are and I think if we can get more, it would be super fun :)


Edit: Player to player interactions being like duels with wagers, little gui minigames with wagers, stuff like that just to make it more fun :)
Would be cool if you could put bounties on people in the pvp world, and maybe give some incentive to go there, like a larger amount of ores or something
I thought of having bounties multiple times, but it would simply not work with our current pvp system. We would have to have always on pvp. And it's not enough for pvp to always be on in a single word, because if someone wants to avoid a bounty, they will just go to a non pvp world

This whole pvp situation with players interacting and making the server more challenging and engaging = A Factions Server.

The Exhibition / [AutoShop] HappySheepAuto
Dec 21, 2019, 05:08 PM
Hello everyone! Some of you may know my old Autoshop by "FarmVilleAuto" or "FVA". I am sad to announce that it has now closed after a year of service. It has been replaced by something really exciting though! I am pleased to announce the opening of "HappySheepAuto" or "HSA" as a permanent replacement for my old store.

I thought it'd be nice to show you the exciting building I have been doing over the past few months to make a medieval harbour themed Autoshop! I feel shopping is a much more pleasurable experience when it's in a beautiful location with lots of sights to see! Many Autoshops on SFT these days have quite repetitive designs, I hope that I have brought a design which is different and interesting to the community!

The new store is fully open to the public. Feel free to pop by for all your buying and selling needs at /warp HSA!

Please do suggest items to add, let's get HSA on the map as one of SFT's number #1 Autoshops for value and stock!

Okay I know you said no to Facebook, but bear with me on this one. A free way of advertising (Which I think is more preferable from what you have described) is to do giveaways on the server? Say for example, get existing members of the community to share the server on their own private facebook accounts with their friends, comment, like and share posts, and if they do, one lucky person will recieve an ingame reward (Such as a mystery chest/vote tokens etc). There is no better way to advertise than seeing a post made by your friend. People trust friends, not adverts.

Try to find a way to get the existing community to share SFT through their own friends, either through word of mouth, or Facebook. Myself, and many others came to SFT through word of mouth of friends, not adverts. All people need is a bit of encouragement to do so, such as giveaways, or anything that you deem appropriate. Using Facebook to do so is an easy way to see what is going on, as you'll be able to see who is actually sharing the page.
