I think I have a strike on the MCBans list. Haven't encountered any problems from it yet though. I do see how abusive admins could really **** people over with it though.
you have a clean record: http://whitelist.mcf.li/check/user/566b08fe45953d8d6d917f2543eaf361deff2c53/SlyFoxx

I hate it becausI used to play my favorite server and got banned from an mcban server because I was just talking about my server because an admin asked for it he banned me and then when I tried to join my favorite server I couldn't
orly O.o http://whitelist.mcf.li/check/user/8204f43a406ec6892072e9a5fab5926e72c38527/Owned3600Quote from mxm24
Due to the current state and how it has been used, The plugin is pointless.
This is a straw-man argument against you, but, http://whitelist.mcf.li/check/user/cc229f22b541a255f1a2aec4e5e6cfd12ad927e6/mxm24Quote from ximan11
Personally, I hate it because I get on a new server that I think I'll really like, then almost immediately an admin sidles up to me (figuratively) and says,
"Oh, it says here you were banned on random # of servers... for no reason... well, you're banned here too fag"
This is why I hate it.
I agree with you, after reviewing your record the admin went overboard. http://whitelist.mcf.li/check/user/9be3a3af6cbfe1907f7edc7b6c7a78a88399ded3/ximan11 But it comes down to detective work. Reviewing the bans and the server that ban came from and making a judgement call. I've even sent emails to some admins asking for more details.Quote from 3mzi
One of my friends has mcbans on their server. :/
His friend, (Ben) who doesn't like me very much, griefed his server twice.
Despite this, Ollie (my friend) said "He's changed, I unbanned him"
Unfortunately Ollie didn't realise that Ben was still an admin.
Ollie had to go out, but left his server running and told me I was in charge.
I got this message late because I woke up late, and logged on to the server to find out that I had been banned by Ben.
Ben has left me many messages and comments on youtube, badmouthing me. He never really liked me. I banned him from my server for griefing and using hacks. He commented on my server promotion video about how "Admin is emo, because her friend died. I got banned for no reason. Grief this server!!!!" He said more than that but I cba writing it.
And now I don't know if this has affected my rep on mcbans, all because of Ben banning me for no reason.
*End of rant*
Now, time to go get some tea.

Yes i do hate mcbans because one time i was on a server and i accidently destroyed someones crafting table right in front of them. and then they started yelling for an admin and the admin came and used log block and told me i was banned. But i threw the crafting table back at the person who i took it from right before the admin said that. and the admin wont unban me because i had three other bans because of abusive admins.
and it tells all the other servers i have been banned four times. so they dont trust me and follow me everywhere.
I have zero pity for you, you either have an hacked account or are a serial griefer: http://whitelist.mcf.li/check/user/bdf7426cd35c3968088f0348a445eb864a9780bd/vadamxQuote from Pico0009
i was global banned for accidentally breaking a leaf block. yep watch out guys I'm a leaf greifer. Bah really dumb.
Ok, but what about the other incident: http://whitelist.mcf.li/check/user/ea6cc22a35a01bc8b8e129630ebea9dbfa729687/Pico0009Quote from BeeJesus
MCBans infringes upon the idea of server sovereignty and encourages sloppy administration.
Every server should be different. People change, and not every server admin can be trusted with such power. If somebody was a **** for six months and had a sudden change of heart, they won't be able to play anywhere because MCBans is busy backseat driving for lazy server admins on a couple thousand servers. That's just flat out ********.
Server admins should accept anybody that joins. As long as they're there to have fun and not ruin anybody else's, they should be allowed to stay. However, MCBans discourages this, and that's why it's a bad plugin.
while you only have one ban, what you did was pretty big. http://whitelist.mcf.li/check/user/ff9810de8ced4d0331e19c860dc0cca33e60b04c/BeeJesus

Just got banned from a server i spent quite a while on fairly happy because of
''Your history with mcbans"
This being 1 ban i got when i didn't even know mcbans existed, which means since it was over 6 months ago i have no chance of getting that ban removed, even though i don't remember ever doing anything wrong
To be honest, your case is strange. There was no good stated reason for your ban: You can view your record here http://whitelist.mcf...11a6e/Duckie333
Talk to MCbans, they should reverse that.
May 13, 2012I'm not sure, I'm going to get one of the admins to help you.Posted in: Clans
Update: They took down the server for maintenance, I'll edit this post when they are done.
May 13, 2012Posted in: ClansQuote from Wigg42
I'm having problems connecting to the server.
No worries, the admins were doing maintenance at that time. I'll be online almost all day today on IRC and playing in the evening. When you come on, just ask someone to get me from the server's irc channel if I'm not online.
May 12, 2012GTB3NW on reddit posted a few considerations for me to think about. I think these are critical questions which should be addressed in the design stage.Posted in: Server Support and Administration
-System uptime - It will get DDoS'ed and it will cost lots of money, an alternative could be a P2P network."
-Maybe each server could act as a "police department" which stores the police reports. Other admins request the report if they need more information then a general summary. Maybe I could just host all th data video good docs but have a website that is simply a nice looking UI. If my website goes down, the google document still works.
"Could the system be abused by fake servers?"
-Instead of relying on the honesty of the people who write reports, I'm relying on the expectation that server admins will review the full detailed history of people they are considering the ban from their server just for their history. That they would do the same people they want to promote to staff levels. It would be easy to see if a fake server wrote a report. A) Fake reports would be of low quality B)Maybe we could develop a plguin to verify the manually filed detailed reports. My system just stores reports, it is up to the admin to do the detective work. That being said, the above idea puts a huge time burden on admins. However, having a good UI design could help make tons of reports into an easy to understand rapsheet. Maybe we can embed a server ranking site's server banner within the report.
"Could players with proxies avoid detection (Yes. What will the system do to stop this? Proxy detection?)"
-I don't have enough experience to come up this an idea to evade proxies, but I think this will be less a problem on this system. The griefers would never know the admins where using this tool, because it is a manually tool. Thus, they shouldn't enable evading system. But that is what a logical person would do, and griefers aren't logical people. I would have to look a case studies to really develop a strong counter-proxy system.
May 12, 2012Posted in: Server Support and AdministrationQuote from Sparkiez
As i have seen on a few servers recently, my own included, griefing client communities (nodus mainly) have been sharing IPs to server to flood and grief, with a massive amount of players joining, its impossible to take the time to ban each one of them individualy when you have 20+ of them running around griefing.
Implementation of a alias'ed ban system on the otherhand would be quite good, to generalise what the person did in a few words, in a way that everyone would understand.
I think either I misunderstood you or you misunderstood me. Let me tell you what came to mind when I envisioned this. How I would want server owners to respond to this on their own servers is to to ban happy. To ban as many people as they pleased. After the dust settles, it is then that the system is implemented. You would file a report listing any information you know. Team members, their website/forums/youtube if they where dumb enough to spam it. This would allow other admins, when they ran a background check, to see this detail and understand the severity.
The banning and the report filing are two seperate processes basically. With a ban seen as insignificant, with very low value where as a ban backed a detailed report is of concern. This is an action taken after the attack is over the help the community create a history of all players, whether good or bad.
On my server, we look up the history of every new player and really understand them. I'm designing a system to fit how I would moderate a server.
May 11, 2012Hope that people read the report and sees that the report is nonsense/abusive. This isn't a plugin, this forces the server owner to deeply consider each ban. Banning should be a big deal.Posted in: Server Support and Administration
May 11, 2012TL:DR Proof-of-Concept test of a new ban database:Posted in: Server Support and Administration
Ban Submit Form https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?formkey=dHhHYmQ1bE42djJYVmtnVTFybXUzakE6MQ#gid=0
Would this sort of system be worth programing into a formal website?
A Detective's Monologue
There was a incident on my server yesterday. Well, it wasn't an incident, incidents are when something happens. This was something else, an anomaly, an occurrence? But I digress. I was bored, really bored. I had just finished major work on a major project. Most of the major work was done, I was waiting on copper from the mines and microblocks had fried my nerves like the donuts at the local donut shop. So, I decided to watch that chat, the trades, the directions being given, the help requests filled by other staff. All seemed normal, a few new faces, but normal. Never the less, I had to do my job. So I swiftly entered !players and copied then pasted the names into http://whitelist.mcf.li/ The results trickled in like when a hose is shut off then flipped do the the nozzle pointed to the ground. Fast, but not quiet fast enough.
Normal, normal, normal. Our server ignores minor infractions in the player's past. We are only looking for the major griefers.
Still bored out of my skull I decided to get familiar with the records of these new players, Most admins on other servers leave only one word, so a natural detective like me has very little to work with, but today. Today was different. An admin from another server listed a ban reason and the name of an alt account. I looked in chat briefly, I saw that new kid looking for wood. Most of the trees have been chopped down a long long time ago near spawn. But could this wood be the beginning of a major griefing infection. I had to know. So I looked up the ban history of the alt. 17 bans! I thought to myself that I must act swiftly. I must find all these alts and ban them all before he and his grief team can gain a foot hold. I owe it to this one admin, tons of detail the lead me to one alt to another. Then to the name of the team, then to more alts. I had the trap sprung. All my head-admin had to do was ban all those accounts without notice and the server would be safe from them. Luckily, we were able to take swift active against that griefer and his team.
I was proud after that. I felt that I had done something no automatic tool could do, I connected the dots. But what about the other so-called minor infractions in our player's past. Could one of these people have wiped a whole server in the past. I started the long process of contacting admins of other servers. Some replied, few remembered those banned players.
It was then that this tool came to mind. A tool that allows admins to manually submit "police reports" against major violators. Data on incidents not covered on any other, I wanted to know who got griefed by whom. Anyone associated with this person so I can pre-ban the griefer's friends before they came on my server. I wanted to see the full report and all the details to really understand the past of my player's. I search for many databases, and I found none that suited my tastes. Thus, I decided to make this google form as a proof of concept to see what the community thinks. Would such a database be a value to the community? Would it be worth programing this tool? Would people abuse it or does the highly detailed nature of the reports prevent that?
