  2. Hello PvtSnowball971, I have removed all but your most recent note, as they were over two years old. However, given that you have recently been noted again for a different issue, I'd advise you to take some time to read through our rules and look through the server specific guidance available to you, to avoid future problems.

  4. 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!

  10. Reminder - this survey closes at the end of the upcoming weekend. If you haven't filled it in, now is the time!
  11. 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
  12. This process has now been enacted.
  13. Tharine has been moved to the ​inactive moderators list, ​upon request. Perms have been updated accordingly.
  14. 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
