  3. September 2020 Staff Meeting Head Admins Fundraiser 2020 update for mods PvE Is going smashingly! chocolate on a hot dog is great - ice new rev planning discussed thanks for all the assistance, Mods! Creative Nothing new to report
  4. Last week
  5. Pez banned you from discord so he is also "the banning moderator". His response was from us as a group. Both your banning and the reply was discussed as a group. You can assume a response from any Head Admin here is from all of us. I will not be reopening the previous appeal thread. -defiex
  6. Please re-open my previous appeal so that I may respond. https://nerd.nu/forums/topic/5780-mumberthrax-defiex/ My previous appeal post was closed before the banning staff member (Head Admin Defiex) explained her actions. Head Admin Pez posted in the thread despite this section of the Ban Appeal Policy: https://nerd.nu/forums/topic/2865-ban-appeal-policy/ I did not respond to Pez at the time because it was not Defiex, the banning admin, and Pez did not assert that he was speaking for her or that he was taking over the ban. If Pez is now responsible for the ban, then I would like to reply to his statement in my appeal, rather than create a separate new thread and disrupt the continuity of the appeal process.

  8. I'm not opposed to S coming back some day, but it would have to be done right. Any half-measures would just lead to the server dying out within a few weeks/months. In my mind, a properly-resurrected S would require its own server, not a multiverse or section of another server's map. There are several other issues that are all solveable, but many would require significant discussion first: 1. Staffing: A PvP server requires a lot of time and energy to moderate. While PvE has its share of claim disputes, x-rayers, and hackers, PvP also introduces the issues of combat logging, base griefing, pvp hacks, as well as higher tension in chat (See issue 2). Finding/training a group of mods/admins who are willing to deal with these issues is possible, especially if we work out the issues further down the list, but it's not easy, and it definitely can't happen overnight. 2. Community Standards: There's a line between friendly competitive joking and abusive trash talk, and that line is unfortunately different for every player. The more we try to define that line, the more we'll see rules lawyers trying to dance around it. There have to be clear expectations from the very beginning: What behaviors will the community crack down on, and what will they tolerate? What level of moderation is expected from the staff? 3. Past History: Often times when Survival is brought up in public chat on the servers these days, it devolves into the same old arguments again and again - usually variations of "S PlAyErS wErE aLl ToXiC!" and "tHe AdMiNs DiDnT cArE aBoUt Us!". There was a lot of bad blood back then. Instead of dredging up drama from 5+ years ago, its best to just learn from it and move on. That includes anyone who's thinking of making joke comments in this thread, by the way. As for game mechanics (revision length, elytra, combat logging, respawning, portals, etc,) there's no way to cover every single base in advance, but the more we talk about it, the easier it will be to get a clear picture of what the userbase wants to see. Those kinds of discussions can happen later, after the main question (is there enough community/staff interest in even committing to this?) is settled.
  9. such a negative comment, however i am glad to inform this player that we have indeed, been speaking to admins and have got input, very constructive input at that, if you were more engaged with the servers maybe you would have known this, as you have not been seen on the servers in the past 4 months 馃檪
  10. Here is a sample of your recent discord comments: "I wholly advocate the death penalty for people who perform abortions" "Maybe we can talk about something that doesn't remind me of how utterly foul and monstrous you guys are. like nazis" "I think mass genocide of all pro-abortion people is reasonable" "forgive me if I don't just accept what a monster tells me on discord" "It is true, the time for argument has passed. It's time for action. On this day at this hour, we must enact the final solution to the abortion problem." Appeals are not a place for a banned person to hear arguments in favor of a ban, pass judgment upon the ban, and decide if they will allow themselves to be banned. The appeals process exists so people can argue in favor of returning to the community. Acknowledging the issue, and stating what you will do to avoid the issue in the future is a good start. You acknowledged the issue (good!) and then tried to justify your calls for violence(bad!) by mentioning two groups you believe are deserving of violence. Your initial appeal gave no indication that you would hesitate to make similar statements in the future. Your reply is no better. Rule 1 is "be respectful and civil toward your fellow players" and we have reminded you of this more times than we should have needed to. You've required a disproportionate amount of our time to moderate. Links to the time surrounding the sampled comments: https://discordapp.com/channels/206022440269250560/245141036265897984/753109009699045438 https://paste.thezomg.com/75597/28955160/ Thanks -pez
  11. I think the lack of response is your answer, bud.
  12. No, I was not. Yes, and disdain is not a violation of nerd.nu/rules. This also is not true, and it isn't a violation of nerd.nu/rules. This is irrelevant, and out of context. Repeating the same false statement to make the list of supposed justifications appear weightier only works on people who can't think. If you have to redefine what a joke is before the evidence is even presented, then you do not believe in the strength of your primary claim. This defeats the entire purpose of the appeal section of the forums to deny an appeal before it is even able to be made - telling me that I cannot make an appeal before I even knew what it is that I had done to warrant the ban, much less providing evidence of such. This appeals process was meant to keep the staff accountable to the player base, but each line of your response appears intended to obfuscate and evade that very purpose. Two lies three things which are irrelevant one item intentionally taken out of context to create a false impression of the conversation a prophylactic redefinition of humor an explicit rejection of the process meant to held staff accountable and nothing concrete for me to even address such as a specific quote, or a copy of the logs. It doesn't look good. In fact it looks desperate. To be clear, I'm saying as someone who has been an admin on these servers, and as someone who has been targeted by admins abusing their powers multiple times in the past, that this head admin team are not doing their jobs properly and the community should take note. Why the desperation?
  13. Thank you for detailing the ban in your appeal. To be clear, you were also advocating violence against anyone who was "pro-abortion" after a number of others disagreed with your anti-abortion arguments. You were clear in your disdain for others in the chat calling them more monstrous than Nazis. You implied that someone labeled "abortion serial killers" was "one of you guys". You advocated violence against the other members of that discussion. If you have to say it's a joke after people call you out, it's not funny, nor was it a joke. Your appeal is being denied at this time. -defiex
  14. I noticed the other day that I no longer had access to the nerd.nu Discord server. I checked MCBouncer, and saw no ban for my account. Didn't have time to do anything yesterday, but today I double-checked MCBouncer and saw a minecraft ban was issued from Head Admin Defiex a day later. https://archive.vn/3OPRo I can recall only twice where I advocated violence, both in the #politics channel for nerd.nu's discord server over the past few days. Once was against pedophiles under the hypothetical scenario which Head Admin Fazaden invited my opinion on where all credible government, law enforcement, and judicial systems have broken down - and another was where I stated that I believe abortion (the killing of children inside of a pregnant woman's uterus) is genocide and thus people who perform abortions should be subject to the death penalty. If it were the case that someone at nerd is a pedophile or an abortionist, then I could understand how this advocacy would apply to "members of the community". To my recollection none of the people I was engaged with at the time have explicitly admitted in public to being either. Both assertions on my part are comparable - in the case where there is a judicial system and system of government which are deemed credible by the people governed, I support the death penalty as a law for pedophiles and for people who kill unborn children - in much the same way that I support and will openly advocate for the death penalty for people convicted for mass murders, rape, etc.

    Hi Tysun, Please detail what exploits you were using, and quote which rules those exploits violated to be sure you understand the rules correctly. Thanks -pez

    Tysun [pez252]

    I was banned for using exploits on the pve server and I would like to see when I can get unbanned. My IGN is TysonDavis17.
  17. fine just saying false banning players and not even letting them prove that they did not "cheat/break rules" and then not even get unbanned you said in DM's that it was a week ban so only after a week you said that I need to appeal I said I wanted to keep this private and it did not even seem like you read all the messages I sent you, I just want to play.
  18. Hi there, Banned By Reason Time Banned Server cheezychicken xray nerd.nu/appeal 1 week, 3 days ago c.nerd.nu Since this is the second time you have been banned for xray the ban time is 1 month. As a further punishment for pestering other staff members with this rather than following the correct method I'll push this to a month from today, 09/10/2020. This is reliant upon you actually posting a proper appeal in response to this thread. The appeal you have currently posted isn't sufficient for me to believe you actually learnt your lesson and understand the rules.
  19. Thanks for the false ban I waited the 1 week I was ment to be unbanned four days ago this is very annoying IGN: NameChqnge
  20. Hi Lilninja009, Since it has been a few years since your ban, I'm going to go ahead and unban you. Please take a moment to read the rules. Have fun and play nice! -defiex
  21. Thank you for asking the feedback, here are my thoughts: The Spawn: 路 Was spawn easy to navigate? Could you find the things you needed to find easily? Yes it is easy to navigate. For a beginner, however, it is not easy to find all the things at once. 路 Is there anything you would like to see done differently with Spawn in Rev 26? A spawn map or a shopping guide marking all the shops. 路 We tried make spawn very interactive, having plots players can claim inside spawn with some building restrictions, how do you feel this went? The interactive attempt is successful. Creative buildings from players are scattered around in spawn. Could there be a system to trade or transfer shop? Since some shops are out of business until some point. The Over-world: 路 Do you think that this map size (6k x 6k) was good? Should it be bigger, smaller or similar next rev? Perfect size. I prefer similar. 路 This rev we used vanilla map with some painting. Do you feel it was a good mix of custom and vanilla? Good mix. 路 Were any biomes lacking or too abundant this revision? Perhaps more snow / ice biome near nether portals? 路 How did you find the distribution of ores this revision? By digging long tunnels, I find ores very good distributed. The Nether 路 How did you feel about the custom generated map this revision? It contributes to a magnificent spectacle. 路 Would you like to see a custom nether again? A custom nether spawn, similar to the spawn in overworld (why not shops in the nether) will suit me better. For the rest of the nether world, I prefer to see it vanilla, to experience the horror in Minecraft 1.16. 路 The Nether contains new custom mobs designed by cujobear. How did you feel about the custom mobs this revision? Weren鈥檛 the twins adorable? They are so cute! They make my limited nether time funnier! 路 How was the distribution of quartz and glowstone? I cannot comment because of my nether-phobia. The End: Generation: 路 How did you feel about the custom End this rev? Did you like the separation into islands? The end is creative, the resources distribution is also smart arranged. 路 How did you feel about having ores generated in areas of the End that were plumped but didn鈥檛 have custom drops? How was the ore distribution? I cannot comment because of the lack of digging. Elytra: 路 How did you feel about the method of obtaining Elytra this revision? It gives the warrior a great sense of accomplishment, therefore I see it as a good way. 路 Did you enjoy the Prize Boxes ?Did you feel the prizes awarded were worth the battle? Did you like the option of collecting different Prize Boxes? I cannot comment because I did not fight any dragon. 路 Do you have any other ideas you have for methods of obtaining Elytra? Nerdcoin purchase? Not everyone belongs to the dragon-warrior-elite. Shulkers and other mobs: 路 Did you enjoy continuing to have free range shulkers instead of a shulker spawner? No really. I prefer a shulker spawner. 路 How did you feel about the other mobs that appeared in the end? The other mobs mean endermen? Endermen are so cute. Mapworld: 路 Are there any additions you鈥檇 like to see in Mapworld next revision? An easier way to obtain a painting, for example, marking the IDs of the painting next to its thumbnail image in spawn? Portals: 路 Did you feel that the number and distribution of portals this rev was good? In general good. 路 Do you have any ideas for how portals should be implemented next rev? Can each qualified place be granted a portal? By the way do we have clear standard to judge if a town could be marked as a place? Iron Golem Spawners: 路 Do you feel that the cost of an iron golem spawner was fair? Yes it is fair. Custom Spawners: 路 How do you feel about the inclusion of custom spawners in the map? Would you prefer to have, or not have them? Would you like to see more added as time progressed? They are indispensable, I would like to see more added. Can we have a wither skeleton spawner in the future? 路 Which custom spawners do you think are particularly useful in a multiplayer setting, if any? I find creeper and squid spawners very useful. 路 Were the spawners well hidden? Should they be harder to find? Easier? They are well hidden, maybe closer to spawn or main portal? Still too far away to visit them. Custom trades: 路 Have you enjoyed the custom trades this revision? Yes, I really love the later added trade for special books and spawn eggs. 路 Would you like to see them return for next revision? Sure. 路 Is there anything you want to see available from the custom traders? Elytra, beacon. Events: 路 We Continued the weekly events this rev, would you like these to continue? Yes. 路 Does the time of the weekly events suit you? What time might be better? I cannot join the Friday event due to time difference. A public vote may answer this question in a more precise way. 路 Were the prizes from events appropriate? Are there any other items you would like to trade for? I think it is very appropriate. Other items鈥eacon? 路 Do you have any ideas for events or an event that you particularly enjoyed? I really enjoy mod hunt, scavenger hunt, JSC鈥檚 connecting four event, pig riding event. Rev Theme: 路 This Rev we worked with C to host a Build Contest which resulted in player builds being hidden around the map. Was this something you felt added to the experience of this rev? Did you enjoy discovering them as you searched the map? Would you like this to be included again? Roadside attraction hunting is one of the best activities I enjoyed! And yes. 路 Do you feel the theme of a revision adds to your experience? Yes, it is like some kind of ceremony. 路 Should events and server planning be more tied to the theme? Less? I would suggest server planning tied to the theme. Event does not matter. 路 Do you have any ideas for themes that you would enjoy? So difficult question...What about 鈥7 wonders of the world鈥, 鈥淔airy Tale Route鈥? Any other comments? 路 Is there anything else you want to tell us about your experience on the server? Things the Padmins can do improve? 1. Sofar the most common questions from new user are 鈥渨here I am鈥 or 鈥渨hat should I do with the horse鈥, 鈥渉ow to claim a land鈥, 鈥渨hat golem souls is鈥濃 Is it possible to simply send the new users the simple commands like /map and the link to nerd.nu wiki? 2. Villagers in Pico died from a raid and could not be rolled back. Hope in the future a raid will not affect villagers, or at least the dead villagers can be rolled back. 3. Could the villagers in nearby chunk also get restock? 4. Could the maze be different? Like a maze in 3D or a maze with monsters, with traps, with surprised signs鈥
  22. Hello Defiex Thanks again for the help. I hope it can be resolved. however I understand if the appeal fails Kind regards -lilninja009
