Hello, first of all, elmegaard, I must say, you have quite a nice server running, it's one of the most smooth I've played on as of now, so props on that, I haven't seen a single griefer as of yet either.
now, my problem.
Sinn (your co-admin), was changing the time to day every night, I politely asked him to stop it, because I enjoy playing the night phase, and the sudden change makes my computer freeze up, because, yes, it's pure **** as of now.
after I asked him, he started exclaiming that a request should only be filed if the community is behind it, and not on the request of a single person. While I agree that an admin cannot comply to every request issued, this is a quite easy one, and does not interfere with gameplay or mechanics, as I thought, and so, in my opinion, is quite a simple request, yet it was, as I said, denied, and deemed 'ridiculous'. Someone even said that I should go live in an unlit cave if I enjoy playing through the night phase.
I do not, in the slightest manner, accuse Sinn of being a bad admin, I'm just saying that in my opinion, he should act a little more as a player, and not someone who can alter anything to his liking without asking someone else, in my opinion a admin is 'succesful' when he listens to other players, and contributes to the entertainment of himself, and anyone else on the server.
I've enjoyed my time playing on your server, and I will certainly come back at some point, but as of now, I'll stay on Buxville, where night lasts an hour.
I understand your frustration and i do reconsider my own personal way of handling this situation.
When im in the wrong i dont mind being corrected so that i,the next time, can get a better result.
However,i do dispute some of your points.

2011-01-27 20:59:07 [INFO] <veIimas> ffs admins stop doing /time day
Now,some players like the dark,and some players like the day and there is absolutely no way to please them all.
During this episode where you where asking me to stop, we were constructing a mob grinder and thus we needed the light of day to stop them from spawning on us.
Secondly,we cannot accommodate every single players need at all time and we can most certainly not take into account every single players different computers,connections and playstyle.
If you computer laggs out from changing the night/time cycle then that really isnt the community or my problem.
Its not right for us to only accommodate your needs because you have a handicap regarding your outdated hardware.
Now,if several people were to have the same issue and that changing the night/day cycle would affect the performance of the server things would have been slightly different.
Tho im sorry that we have not been getting of on the right foot here i do need to stress that player request is something that we get several times, all the time and judging witch requests are to be handled at any given time is not an easy task.
That is why we need to prioritize the types of requests that the masses can benefit from.
I apologize for my poor choise of words regarding the manner,but i stand firm on my points.
Any other disputes you may have on the subject can be addressed via a PM to me.
Just to inform the Mods, we had a severe problem with player Erik_Russian (not sure if that's the exact spelling) griefing and attacking other players.
Epic_Russian is currently under investigation,i have been having my eye on this guy for some time now

Griefing is temporarily allowed.
Although we have lowered our guard a bit regarding griefers and hackers,we will still ban players that are disrupting gameplay in such a manner that the game becomes unplayable.
Like players that start forest fires or people that hunt and stalk other players.
Our goal for the server is that it should still be a place for fun and creativity,although we still lack our complete tools for modding.
I demands a fix! I have a snow day! I don't want to waste it!
Let me just give you guys a friendly reminder that you are all acting as Beta testers for a game that is not fully developed.
Not only are we basically testing the game its self,but we are also testing the mods that are made for it by 3d party developers.
I do share your frustration on bugs,glitches and errors,but we must not forget that this is still just a Beta.
Both the developers over at Mojang and Notch him self are working on resolving the thousands of issues that are at hand, and also our server admin Elme is doing his best in keeping this server running and up to date.
Unfortunately there is little else for us to do then be patient and hope for some fixes every now and then :smile.gif:
If you find issues that are directly linked to the maintaining and running of the server,please post it in a constructive manner that allows us to utilize that information.
Also if you know about any other information that can help out in making the server a better place to play,we would like to hear that aswell.
