  • We recently held a padmin meeting, here are our public meeting notes:


    • We confirmed that moderator retraining is scheduled for after our meeting.
    • We confirmed that our padmin documentation was undergoing proofreading before being fully updated. This will allow the new padmins to be up to speed on all of the remaining processes.
    • We confirmed that the hopper policy is ongoing with the tech and head admins. We are continuing to stay on a slow and steady course, to avoid any uninformed, rash decisions.
    • We confirmed plans to close the poetry competition shortly, having received 25 valid submissions.
    • We established a larger focus on the upcoming shulker event.
    • We confirmed intent to approve a solution to automate issues with the dragon drops.

    • We confirmed an intent to push back another event for the same reason.
    • We are exploring ideas for using the suggestionbox in an alternate manner. Our responses to suggestions have ceased until we move forward (though all are being read and discussed still).
    • We confirmed intent to handle better documentation of admin requests admin-wide.
    • We confirmed intent to add the Deadmap to the /maps command.
    • We confirmed intent to further investigate a teleportation bug within the end, which has caused a number of deaths.
    • We confirmed intent to provide the next wave of spawn trades with the Archaeologists’ Guild.

  • Here are all the suggestion box submissions we have reviewed as a team:


  • Here are the suggestion box submissions that we have reviewed as a team:
  1. Spoiler


    1. As someone not quite in the top 20 in usage, affording the Reinforced Elytra was not the difficult after I found out the cost... it just took a bit of work and some mining trips with standard gear to achieve. I think the costs are ...
    2. ... appropriate at this time, consider how they are an end-game item.
    3. Any updates on when we can expect additional spawners like the creeper or witch to be released?
    4. the reason people are unhappy with the elytra and there seem to be no good options is because it's being treated as a "problem that must be solved" when there was nothing wrong with it to begin with
    5. Placing a chest (or any LWC lockable) in a region should automatically add r:regionname to the ACL.
    6. If possible, add functionality for glazed terracotta blocks that's similar to shulkers and logs with bonemeal
    7. add some variation to the value of different rare fossils. Maybe some super rare nether ones that only drop from quartz.
    8. please remove caps filter i need it so bad but very infrequently i swear
    9. Add a way to remove names from an armor stand: /stand name <blank> or /stand name none
    10. Can you use nerdydragon for golem souls and fossils too, so the itemelevator effect doesn't take them out of reach?
    11. Next rev, please return to the previous way of obtaining elytra from past revisions. This new system is 100% terrible. Don't make decisions that cater to a minority who dislike elytra.
    12. Please implement a better way of engaging with suggestions and replys that doesn't rely on archaic forum systems
    13. give players a chat message when they enter a pvp zone
    14. admin-placed command blocks with specific admin-set commands for certain things on sale at market. e.g. a setblock block for opening and closing large doors
    15. remove player perms for using wood swords to check regions. players can use /rg i instead. wood swords do have a place in survival mc.
    16. Plz can we have AFK messages enabled?
    17. re-open the suggestion forums instead of making everything worse by removing them and then shutting down the response threads
    18. enable tnt block damage below y50 in unprotected areas. let it not destroy ores, so it is more useful for mining.
    19. glazed terracotta surface changing with bonemeal like logs/shulkers
    20. cross server clanchats
