  2. Hi PumpkinFoxx, You were banned for extensive grief on our Creative server. It's been more than long enough since your account was banned, and we're happy to unban you at this time. However, since you don't recall having played on our servers before, this could mean your account is compromised. Please ensure you have changed your password to help keep your account safe. You can find the rules and other useful information about our servers here. Good luck!
  3. geb_ has rejoined the moderating team and permissions have been updated accordingly.

  8. Reminder - this survey closes at the end of the upcoming weekend. If you haven't filled it in, now is the time!
  9. Hey all, Please take 5 minutes to complete the January nerd.nu community survey! We'd like to get some detailed responses from players as to how you feel the servers are running, what's going well, what you think needs to improve and what you'd like to see in the future. We'll be running this survey for two weeks from today, after which we will collate the feedback and provide an overview of players' collective thoughts and opinions. Please note, you are not required to provide your username and are free to fill in this survey with complete anonymity. Thank you for taking time to help make our community an even better place, and we look forward to hearing your thoughts and opinions. ~Didy
  10. This process has now been enacted.
  11. Tharine has been moved to the ​inactive moderators list, ​upon request. Perms have been updated accordingly.
  12. Please find below our proposed process for dealing with inactivity within our staff team. This process has undergone an initial discussion period amongst all staff, and is now appearing in the Public Mod Forum for a final review. If there are no requested amendments, we will enact this as it stands, in one week. Proposed Staff Inactivity Process 1. Determine definitively inactive staff members using the current metrics and move them to the inactive list, as we do now. Ensure short-term absence is accounted for by checking the inactivity thread in the Public Mod Forum. 2. Create a follow-up list of staff that don’t appear to be keeping pace with their peers, given the evidence available, including admin staff (who should be active in an admin capacity relevant to their role). 3. Contact these staff members individually to ensure there are no barriers to their activity. 4. Arrange to remove these barriers where possible. For example, a staff member may need training to complete specific types of modreqs. Where barriers are insurmountable (such as long term commitments in real life) arrange to move the staff member to inactive. 5. Re-evaluate the relevant staff members at the next activity window (8 weeks): a. Moderators with little or no perceived change in activity levels: Head admins will create a post in the admin forum asking for viewpoints, and any additional information on the staff member (other admins may know more about work done in other areas, such as dev servers, and including the whole admin team allows a more assured sense of fair-play for moderators). Leave a week for comment, then where there is no comment, or corroborating comments for a staff member, move them to inactive. Staff members with further supporting information from other admins move into an additional period of review. b. Admins with little or no perceived change in activity levels: Head admins will contact the relevant admin team and ask for viewpoints and additional information, then proceed as is appropriate to the situation. Where this is a head admin, it is the duty of other head admins to follow this procedure, and where that is not demonstrably taking place, it is the duty of any admin to instead make an activity post in the admin forums, in line with moderator procedure above. This allows approximately eight weeks to gauge activity (as it is now), then eight weeks for a staff member under review to assess and adapt their situation if they so choose. Thanks for reading, ~Didy

  14. Hello vishnash17, Your banning moderator is away for a short time at the moment, so I'll handle this on his behalf. Thank you for your apology - please take the time to familarize yourself with our rules if you haven't done so already. Since your ban is over a week old, and you've reconsidered your actions, I'll go ahead and unban you now.
  15. Hey new players! Welcome to the nerd.nu servers – you’ve made a great choice and we’re glad you decided to join us! Here’s a quick run-down of what we offer: PvE Server (address: p.nerd.nu) [Guide] This is our “player vs. environment” server. You need only worry about the dangers in the environment, as your fellow players cannot harm you (except in specially designed PvP arenas). It’s a mostly vanilla survival experience, with a few tweaks to gameplay. Head out into the wilderness and start your own homestead, or join one of our player-run towns and cities. Your builds can be protected from grief, and staff are always around to help! Creative Server (address: c.nerd.nu) [Guide] Our creative server is for players who want to create with blocks, without the worry of being exploded by a creeper! Access almost every block available in vanilla creative mode, and build to your heart’s content. There are plots in our spawn city, but the majority of the server is open freebuild land. Flying is enabled, and you can get your builds grief-protected easily. With build protection also comes the option of using WorldEdit – a plugin that adds many helpful commands to your toolbox, such as block replacement, copying patterns or creating spheres. Minigames Server (address: m.nerd.nu) This is our newest server and is still under development. Right now, you can join with friends and play instant games of Capture the Flag or King of the Hill. Try to get to the top of the leaderboard, or simply play for fun! Each game-type automatically rotates through various maps, and all our maps are created by staff and players. Once you’ve chosen a gametype from the minigames hub, join a team by typing /aj (autojoin). Games will automatically start once there is a player on each team. Quick tips to get you started! Read the rules – it really helps! Switch between servers with these commands, from anywhere on nerd.nu: /lobby /pve /creative /minigames Type /list to see all the players online on your server, and which are moderators and admins. Don't be afraid to ask questions in chat - our players are generally very friendly and willing to help out anyone who needs it! If you need help from a staff member, just type /modreq <your question> e.g. /modreq How do I get my house protected? Privately message other players or staff members with /msg <playername> <your message>. For example, /msg Sir_Didymus Hello! You can reply to someone who has messaged you with /r. For example, /r Hello back! Handy Links!
