    posted a message on How reliable is Bukkit and it's plugins these days?

    Sorry, I don't really care about what's going to work in a year or five. And, MCF, like I mentioned, all my info is extremely out-dated. Sponge was a big source of talk during 1.7.10-1.8.


    I wanna play minecraft with other people and have funsies. I could not give two shakes about the politics or legalities or dramallamas involved in what devs are better or more legal than who when or hows.


    I just want to know; what is functioning, updating and will allow me to play minecraft the way I want to in the next 3-4 months.


    Does anyone else agree that Spigot is currently the most reliable source for my needs for simple and reliable mods? My server host offers spigot as a supported option so I can just push a button to make it happen.


    Spigot is the way to go.

    The only difference you need to know is that Bukkit (and inherently Spigot) is in violation of its license. Sponge is much newer and uses vastly different designs internally. The Sponge team is made up of developers from many different communities, but to name two: Spout and Bukkit - which means you can discount the previous point made about 'more experienced developers'.


    However Sponge is still new, and perhaps Spigot is more stable but either way as far as I'm concerned the future is where we should be looking and as a developer I can say that Sponge is the future.


    When I quoted developers, I meant within the Bukkit API. There is a large variety of plugins on Bukkit while on Sponge there is a lot less, and a lot less Sponge developers to buy plugins from.

    As a developer as well, I can say that Spigot is still the future. There is still reliable ways to download it and it's updated faster than any platform I've seen.

    Is spigot functioning better and updating more reliably than bukkit these days? It's mods too? Everything was in the air when I was last on and it looked like sponge was going to be the new thing?


    If spigot's actually updating, that'd be great.


    Sponge is far from the new thing and I find Sponge to be insanely less efficient than Spigot. With Spigot, you can get constant updates, new plugins, and more experienced Developers.

    If you need a place to get Spigot go to GetSpigot.org.

    Looks great. Might look into developing for you when I get some free time.


    A CustomWorldGenerator isn't extremely hard to accomplish, so don't let a developer fool you into an absurd price, and if you have questions regarding a price someone gave you, you have my Skype :).

    Hi! I've decided to quit Minecraft in general. I was wondering if you could remove all my posts (please, I don't want people stalking me) and ban me from this page?

    Applying for: Helper or Mod , I don't really mind Moderating or Helping - I don't want such a big rank but just enough to bring brightness to the server :D Although I am good at Moderating. Please don't take this as a passive aggressive manner.


    Lets start off with the basic questions.

    How long have you been playing: About 2 and a half years, almost 3. I have been playing when 1.2.5 was around.

    What is your IGN: Essences
    How old are you: I am 14 and a half years old

    Experience:
    Owner
    Co Ownerx2
    Head Admin
    Admin x2
    Moderator x3
    Builder x3
    Helper x2

    These are all completely true, and if I were lying, trust me I would have put Co Owner x11. Notice I have not been a Developer, or Manager because I do not specialize in them.

    Why should I trust you: I have played a ton of servers before and know how to deal with things. I have never been banned once in my life, or have even gotten a fair warning. The only warnings I have got were for lag, which they thought I was lagging the server on purpose. I
    know how to handle situations such as if someone were to spam or advertise, I would give them a 10 minute mute, if they do it again 1 day mute, and again a 2 day ban and so on. If I were to see someone hacking or exploiting a glitch I will give them a 7 day ban, and if it happens again a permanent IP Ban.

    What is your Skype for contacting: cheesekoala89 but will not be talking over mic alot.

    Now onto misc. questions.
    Will you donate to the server: Yes i most likely will.

    Are you expecting pay: No, if offered will decline

    How much time will you put into the server: Around 3-4 hours weekdays 4-5 hours weekends.

    Do you know any other languages other than English: i know a bit of moari but thats it other than english.

    Skill Levels:
    Maturity: 8-9/10 I like a good joke here and there, and if it ever goes to where we are using commands, I make sure no players are on to think bad of our staff.


    What happens if you are not chosen to be a moderator?
    Ill keep finding ways to help this server and help it grow. I will not quit a cry and be a bad sport i'll just wait my 2-3 months.

    What kind of skills do you have?
    I am a very quick learned, and I am good with math but I have a multiple amount skills like...

    • I have good behaivor and manners.
    • I know how to react in some bad situations and what to do.
    • I'm starting to learn how to edit videos but still learning.
    • I have a YouTube channel

    As a moderator/helper, how will you affect CELLBLOCKMC?
    I will always be there for the players and always lift them up when they are down. I want to touch peoples hearts, not crush them.
    I will affect CELLBLOCKMC as a moderator to help the server become a better place and not have all the mods know as "abusive" mods.


    Why do you want to be a moderator? What is your goal as a moderator?
    I want to become a moderator not for power or control or for respect, I truly want mod to make CELLBLOCKMC a better place. I want to become the moderator that everyone will remeber that everyone will remeber as the "Awesome" mod not the abusive, insipid mod I dont want the power, I dont want the respect, I want to make a better server out of CELLBLOCKMC
    Some of my goals for CELLBLOCKMC as a Moderator for me are...

    • Not to be commanding, that is not a mods true job.
    • I want to be known as the aultruistic mod that never ignored someone saying, "(name) is hacking in pvp."
    • I don't want to have to ban everyone and mute everyone just to make them stop that is not a mods main job I would always look back at the mod handbook and make sure I do my job right.
    • I want to be know as the none abusive mod, and not be extremely agresive and ignore all the players I DONT WANT TO BE LIKE THAT.

    Would you help players if they are confused?

    Yes!! Indeed , helping is other players is my passion and I love doing it


    Would you help the server grow?

    Ofcourse , I myself am a great builder and building houses in minecraft is my hobby , other than moderating I will be building to help the server spawns , shops etc.


    So that sums it up :D

    Please contact me on skype for my position if you like my app

    for Helper Rank or Moderator Rank


    Thankyou for reading my App , If I don't get accepted I completely understand and that I will still help the server grow :D

    Moderator Application


    Name: Soul


    Age: 18


    Skype (Mandatory):


    thesoulsmiles


    What can you bring to the server?:
    What can I say without sounding too cliché? A positive attitude, sarcasm, creativity. A dedicated moderator who's passionate about everything they do. I'm trustworthy without being overly trusting, responsible and faithful to the rules without being a mindless drone. I try lift people's spirits through humor or by listening and offering advice, or sometimes just telling people what they need to hear. I'm responsive and fairly available, and I'm more than happy to help you guys with extra tasks when you need it, provided I don't have some lecture to attend.


    How can you handle stressful situations?:
    I handle stress well. I'm very calm and very patient and very logical. I know where my capabilities lie, so I avoid putting way too much on my plate. If I have a lot on my plate already, I divide and conquer the work. If, for some reason, I'm unable to handle any amount of work, I can that up with people above me. When put in a stressful situation, I carefully assess the situation in a manner quick enough for any following actions to be properly effective.


    How do you keep yourself from getting frustrated and lashing out on players?:
    As previously stated, I'm very calm and patient, so I never find myself taking things out on players. When someone is being so unbearably rude or uncooperative that I find myself wanting to scream, I just take a moment to calm and collect myself, then I decide how to move forward. Either the player is breaking the rules, or they aren't. If they are, then I act accordingly: meaning simply stating the reason for their punishment and then carrying it out without going back and forth in an argument over it. If they aren't, then I take a deep breath and let it go. If there are any grey areas (because we all know the world isn't black and white), that's when it's time to take my evidence and have a proper discussion with my co-workers to see if we can come to a verdict as a team rather one authoritative figure.


    Rate your maturity on a scale of 1-10 (10 being a lawyer and 1 being a 3 year old):

    To be fair, there are some horribly immature lawyers. And this isn't exactly the most accurate way to measure maturity. Like, 10 sounds like I'm bragging or being dishonest, and I also sound like I'm stuck up and not a fun person. It's also purely situational. If I'm goofing off with my friends, then my maturity hovers at around a 7. But when disaster strikes, or duty calls, I pull out my lawyer powers and bring it up to a 10.


    Why should you be a moderator over a helper (3-5 sentences):
    I know how to handle people maturely and without bias. I can see both sides of a conflict between two players, which is something that they tend to really appreciate (no one likes to be handed the short end of the stick right off the bat). I'm also enthusiastic about helping those around me. Players tend not to take the 'Helper' role seriously, but I'm serious about enforcing the rules when they need to be enforced. I'm strict and I often have to play the role of the bad guy, but I do care about others and I care about making everyone feel comfortable on the server as to maintain a sense of equality and preserve the server's integrity.


    Contacted on Skype -- sorry I missed your GFX application before. You're phenomenal.

    Skype (Mandatory): PM


    What can you bring to the server?:


    I can bring anything you would like me to bring. I have a very vast knowledge with servers. I have got about three years worth of experience, I started playing Minecraft in 1.2.5 (exactly). Ever since I started playing I continuously grew in many different ways. I grew YouTube-wise (I created a channel and got to approximately 500 subs and quite a few video views, because of this I became really good at Photoshop and Cinema4D).


    I grew server-wise (On my very first server, I played for about a year, I was promoted three times because I'm a really good learner. I went from Player, to Moderator, to Admin, to Head-Admin, to Head of Staff (Third in command), but after this I resigned as the server was near its end.) I was a Helper on Hypixel, and finally I owned my own server for a really long time, so I'm really good with plugins and I'm in the process of becoming a bukkit dev (but that's unlikely as I stopped coding for a while).


    How can you handle stressful situations?:


    Throughout the year of being a staff member on an old server of a friend of mine, I encountered many situations where I'd really like to gouge out the eyes of a certain guest/player that tends to be really annoying. In these stressful situations, I've learned to keep my cool. I don't lash out on anyone, if they aren't breaking the rules, I'd ask them politely to stop doing whatever they are doing, in this case they usually listen as they are not completely inappropriate. In the case that a player does break the rules, I'd mute/kick/ban them depending on the severity of their actions.


    How do you keep yourself from getting frustrated and lashing out on players?:


    I keep myself from getting easily frustrated and lashing out on players simply by getting off my laptop and getting a drink of water. It has become really easy for me to ignore players that have become frustrating. I basically always keep my cool now because I have had so many situations in the past where it simply isn't worth lashing out on them.


    Rate your maturity on a scale of 1-10 (10 being a lawyer and 1 being a 3 year old):


    Honestly, I say an 8. I used to be quite immature, but I realized all it does is lose some respect from others. I grew and matured, but I still enjoy making some inappropriate jokes of course.


    Why should you be a moderator over a helper (3-5 sentences):


    I find myself being more a moderator over a helper mainly because of my experience. I have been useful to many servers as they grew, and being an ex-server owner myself, I understand the wants and needs of an owner. I understand their expectations and I understand their goals. I believe that I should be a moderator because I don't need as much training as a helper would nor as much help as a helper would when making decisions because I think that I am a fair judge and I also know that being a moderator is a big responsibility.


    PM me your Skype please :)
