Communicated the first step in our plan for Survival, with collaboration from LadyRavenOwl and the head admin team.


Aiming to update both Mrgauthier34 & Rtr69's permissions shortly once we have received a further communication from them both.

After checking in with MrGauthier34 and Rtr69, we have now updated their permissions.


MrGauthier34 has been moved to our past moderators & Rtr69 has rejoined our moderating team.


(Just a side-note to mention that I'm working on a tool that should help for us to fix, track and maintain all the permissions which are incorrect across our services. There seem to be a significant number that would be best done in one sweep. Such as people lacking access to services such as IRC and the moderator channel to ensure ban appeal notifications are more noticable).

Smiler100 has had his permissions updated to reflect the move from the Tech Admin role to the Past Moderators, this is due to increasing real life commitments.

Allnaturalx has been moved from the tech admin group to the role of founder, as suggested by AvadaKedavra. This move better reflects our current tech admins and provides a bit of history to where our community began.

January Admin Meeting Notes:

Donation Drive

  • For more of a thought out idea and to contribute your ideas please review this link: [Redacted]

    • CLIFF NOTES ON DESIGN: [Redacted due to ongoing planning using these ideas]

  • Funding

    • Previously all funds were in one pot that went to just running the servers; with the suggestions of advertising, other minecraft games, etc. separate buckets need to be made to sort of tier out so that we can determine how much we are going to spend on the other items other than running the main servers (PvE, S, and C)

    • slide23: First Goal should be 9 months of primary server hosting, which gives us buffer time if we don’t do another donation drive in 6 months, anything in excess that is raised can go into the other buckets of funding

    • Advertise the tiers so that people understand and work towards what they want to have on the servers

  • Launching

    • Coordinate the Donation Drive with the map resets for 2 or 3 of the servers

We've begun a staff clearup, following on from the returning staff and staff inactivity policies being added to provide us with clearer guidelines on managing our volunteer force in a fair way. A guideline for staff responsibilities have been added too.


With the data gathered, we've also approached the moderators / admins who are missing permissions for some of our services, such as on irc, mumble and steam.

We've declassified a number of topics from private mod chat and moved them into the archives. Some are quite old, others are a little more recent.
