  3. Padmin Notes

    Greetings! Starting this thread as a new place for padmins to keep the community up to date on what we have been working on. (which is mostly hush hush right now - no spoilers for rev 23!) We have held a few meetings so far (scheduled and impromptu) making decisions for the upcoming revision. The most recent was held on October 14th where we finalized some of more pressing details about the upcoming rev, including the map and map size. Don't even try to pry more information from any of us than that. We won't say a peep. Techs are still working incredibly hard to update, fix, and sometimes completely re-write plugins that are essential for our server. If you see totemo or bermudalocket online please thank them for all they are doing and then let them get back to work. We do remind everyone we will give a 1 month notice before the start of the new revision and that there are still plenty of events in the works in this current revision. We have also decided that starting with the new revision we will bring back a monthly update of some sort (blog, newsletter, or other form to be determined). Also, we want to encourage players to use the suggestion box. We want to hear what you have to say. Please keep in mind that it is intended for serious suggestions.
  4. Last week
  5. I spent some time last night going through old threads just reading comments and reminicing of the good times at Nerd. I ended up going through a bunch of old Survival threads from when we had to deal with the cretin that was MrLoud and I noticed something odd. In a lot of the threads, there were blatant gaps where comments had been removed and any replies or other traces to those comments had also been removed, or edited without leaving any kind of evidence of it. These comments often appeared to be from staff members, some of whom are still staff now. I'm pretty confused - Perhaps I'm being silly, but I don't seem to have the ability to delete (or even edit) my own comments that I've made, so what gives? Have certain staff members gone through old forum threads and used their mod powers to remove comments to save face? Is there some sort of public moderation log available to monitor that sort of stuff?

  10. Bye Bye

    (Sorry I couldn't think of a witty stepping down post title.) Suggested listening. It's no secret I haven't been around much lately. I've been pretty busy since this summer with working and going back to school full time. I've also been playing Minecraft since back when it was a free browser game, so it feels like time for a break. I'd been looking to step down for a while now but wanted to make sure I was leaving things in good hands. The current heads definitely care a lot about this community and the people in it, so I feel like I can do that now. Many people have told me their favorite part of Nerd is the community, and I definitely agree with that. This is probably the best online community I've ever been a part of. I've made some friends here that I'll keep in touch with for the rest of my life. Thanks to everyone who has been part of my time here.

  12. Head Admin Suggestion Box

    Answered: water in the floor of the lobby could be “deactivated” so only the actual portals send you to that server At this time, we are not planning on "deactivating" the water portals in the current lobby. We will be keeping this in mind for future lobbies and with our next lobby that will be coming soon, floor portals will not be an issue!

  16. Mayan Group Build

    This Friday at 6pm - 8pm EDT there will be a group build with the theme Mayan taking place on the creative server. Take a look at some Mayan buildings and structures, here are a few examples. For some of the older players, you may want to watch the film Apocalypto for some ideas (awesome movie). The location for the event can be seen here. All server rules apply. You will have access to world edit. The event officially ends at 8pm EDT, however, if you still want to continue building afterwards that is up to you. We hope to see you all there, and hopefully we can have a pretty amazing event!

  18. Head Admin Suggestion Box

    Good evening all! I know it's been a while since we had a head-admin suggestion box post. I want to let you know that yes, we are still checking, but with current busy-irl lives, various non-urgent suggestions have been received, but we haven't acted on them as of yet. If you have any questions in the meantime, please let us know! Answered: no caps filter on lobby We do not have plans on changing this at this time as it is currently in line with all servers. can we expand the armor stand presets? Three is very limiting, just requires changing the config.yml for StandMaster. Thanks! <3 -no limit on PvE, C only has a limit on invisible stands. Pending instead of typing /vote and clicking the link, maybe show the link each day on join Maybe the thank for voting message should also tell other people to type /vote We will look into the /vote system on the lobby and consider ways to reminder players without /vote messages becoming too spammy. /lever to change players to on by default Will bring this up with techs and see if there would be any issues with making players visible by default with a command

  23. It was brought to the attention of the head admin team that the chat logs admins have access to on the Nerd.nu Minecraft server were accessed by Barlimore in a fashion inconsistent with what users would expect. Chat is logged on our server along with connection attempts and actions in game to assist in enforce the rules set out at http://nerd.nu/rules. Admins have access to chat logs that contain all messages sent in-game, and as a result are expected to adhere to a standard of behavior that protects users’ privacy whenever possible. However, upon investigation the head admin team discovered that there had been a pattern of incidents where these standards of behavior were not upheld by Barlimore and searches were made without good reason or in a way that was inappropriate. We have compiled a timeline of the searches in question and the surrounding investigation which you can view here. During our investigation we also uncovered a pattern of hostile and manipulative behavior by the padmin team, particularly Barlimore, to other admins, staff, and players. Many of the people we talked with shared similar stories. Most preferred to remain anonymous. However, both Zomise and ieuweh cited behavior from the padmins, and Barlimore in particular, as their main reason for leaving their positions on staff. Following this investigation, Barlimore is no longer on staff at Nerd.nu. Silversunset and Sir_Didymus did not agree with the conclusion of this investigation and have stepped down in solidarity with Barlimore. Any users who we believe to have been affected by these searches will be contacted shortly by a member of the head admin team. We take our users’ privacy very seriously and any violations or inappropriate use of staff powers will be investigated and addressed. We will also be creating an official privacy policy for Nerd services, an early draft of which will be available in the upcoming weeks. We welcome and encourage your feedback on the policy when it is provided. We also recognize that these actions do not undo the contributions made by the former padmin team and we appreciate the work they have put into the community in the past. Their farewell post was made in good faith and with the intent that it would facilitate our community moving past these issues and we would like to thank them for that. This post is made in the spirit of transparency with the hope that being forthcoming about what has happened is best for the long term health of Nerd.nu.
