Dec 8, 2014So with studying for finals this week and taking my finals next week I will probably not be on the server as much as I have been lately but dont worry you will still be able to find me in TS where I am talking to people to try and keep my sanity or at least some of my sanity. I will get back to my old ways in two weeks.Posted in: PC Servers

OK I was just checking mostly cause I saw it on the last page to be honest if its on the page before and it has been 3 days posting it again isnt going to be of huge benefit even though yes it would be allowed.

1) Username: ImplodingPig
2) Your age: 13
3) How long have you been playing the server? (Minimum of 3 days) Since May 2013
4) Have you read the Server, Prison, and Guard Rules? Yes because Noakii <3
5) Any experience with the prison genre? I do play on some other prison servers (I don't like them very much though)
6) What is your time zone? My time zone is EST
7) Why are you the best choice for guard? (1-2 paragraphs)
First of all, I have a good experience with being a guard as I was a guard on another server and I kept my position for about 4 months before the server reset/closed down temporarily so I quit. Even if I didn't quit though, I would still have to apply again and re-donate for all of my perks that I had.
Secondly, I like to help people so whenever someone needs help with anything ranging from a question to protection from riotting scrubs I'm there to help. In the past I've tried to help people with simple things like; setting up a chest shop, or buying a cell, or just ranking up. But it's always broken up by someone who just ends up killing us, or a guard who assumes I'm bullying the prisoner.
Thirdly, I really love Convicted and would never do anything wrong that would be bad for the server. In other words I would never abuse my powers as a guard against the server or against individual players because I feel that even the most simple thing can really impact the server (like Noakii quiting )
Fourthly, I also feel like getting trainee/guard will help me be even more active than I am because since I am Free now, there's nothing really for me to do so if I become a trainee that will keep me occupied by breaking up riots and keeping order. I suck at parkour which rules out every other option other than riots which I can't do because most guards have really good swords and/or Chaos (or even double chaos).
Fifth of all, I've noticed that about 5/8 guards aren't even active which makes me a little frustrated that their not active yet maintain their positions while other people (not referencing myself) have really good guard apps but due to the amount of guards are not accepted. I also noticed that some guards don't really do anything. It seems like they're active but they only log on for about 5 minutes and if they do log on for longer, it's usually that they're on MineChat (not talking about any specific guards).
And sixth on my list, I've always wanted to be a guard ever since I joined the server so I would never abuse my powers that would make me lose my job because I feel like if I did that, I'd be no better than all the other people who have done things like abusing glitches, kept kit guard in their chests, and just abused their powers. I would also never abuse my abilities because I would love being a guard so much
And of course finally, I feel that I would be the best candidate for guard because I am probably one of the most active people on this server. Of course plenty of people that play Convicted are active but I typically log on every day and if not one day, I'll log on the next day. I know that most of the guards are inactive so Viper's trying to demote them and make it so that other people can get the chance to be a guard, but if I get guard I will be as active as possible and come on the server every day even if it's just to say hi. So I really hope that this app gets accepted and I can become a guard
8) Do you understand that nagging Wardens in-game to read your app will result in immediate decline? I do understand because I made that mistake once
9) What is your current prison rank? Do you understand that we will require a screenshot of this when/if you retire from guard? I am currently Free and I will gladly provide a screenshot
Only post your app every 3 pages or 10 days whichever comes first I remember seeing this on the last page. Also didn't you just post something about you quitting the server if so why would you be applying for guard.
Dec 1, 2014Hate to burst your bubble but I was going to post the same thing but felt the need to point out to you that Ladida is still guard and logs in maybe not as much as he should but he still does. He could have retired though and I just dont remember.Posted in: PC Servers
Nov 4, 2014Ok I have some complaints about the server lately. The first is it has gotten beyond any normal amount of lag its constant now and its actually getting quite annoying. Also with that the lag the server keeps crashing and that is also an annoyance.Posted in: PC Servers

Changing your faction to bypass a mute is a tempban it doesnt matter how many times you do it if it is being used to bypass a mute that is the punishment.

The rule says that "griefing the tree farm" is a 30 minute jail, but what exactly is a grief? Here is where the different opinions start:
Some guards consider every single placed block/entity a grief, such as signs, and immidiately jail for the whole 30 minutes.
However, I think that the following would be a far more reasonable definition of a grief: Any placing of blocks/entities that affects the way the tree farm can be used. Lava, water, gravel, and sand are obvious examples. Also, randomly placing blocks would also hinder the usage of the tree farm, since you would walk against those blocks. Signs however do not stop players and are thus not disrupting the people who use the tree farm.
If someone placed a sign on/in one of my buildings and I reported it to a warden, he'd either laugh at me or tell me to stop annoying him with such ridiculous complaints.
The intention of this rule is clear: To allow everyone to use the mine without obstacles.
If you consider signs a grief, jailing for 30 minutes may be correct, but neither is it common-sense, nor does it follow the intention of the rule.
One argument I've heard is that if everyone was ok with placing signs, the tree farm would be filled with signs. However, this is incorrect. For the last 3 years nobody jailed for a single sign, and was the tree farm ever full of signs? No. Even if this somehow happened, rules are not fixed, they can be adapted.
Lastly I'd like to note one thing: I am not attacking the guards who do this, I am merely trying to bring logic into this argument. If you want to contribute to this discussion (which would be great), explain your point. Simply stating "the rules could be interpreted in this way" is definitely not a good argument.
TL;DR: Jailing for placing a single sign in the tree farm lacks common-sense.
When I first became a guard I used to follow the rules word for word so even slightly breaking them would get me all over you for it. But as time has progressed I have acquired a deeper understanding for some of the rules. Common sense tells me if I'm in pvp in courtyard by the warp signs and someone accidentally hits one and warps then comes right back to finish the fight that I shouldn't jail you for 15 min for doing that. Just as if I come across someone in tree farm placing a few wood blocks I simply say to take them down and if it continues or happens again I jail them for it. Common sense has taught me these things and other things about the prison rules. Common sense would tell me not to jail someone for one simple sign in the tree farm now if they were placing a whole bunch all over the place it might make for a different story. The rules are not 100% clear all of the time they are open to some interpretation and a guard has to be able to make the common sense interpretation of that rule. Jailing someone for 30 min for placing one sign in the tree farm would not fall under a common sense interpretation.

So that is spamming within a matter of about 20 min of each other with no alpha or chat mod on to do anything so if they could be banned that will be great. I have already jailed all of them so they can await their bans. Can we promote an alpha who can actually get on at GMT times next time please? Cause this has gone on for a long time now and is wrecking the server experiance for people
Oct 19, 2014Can someone explain why people build pumpkin farms in donor and the prison where it makes it super laggy to then even try and go there? I say we stop that cause its annoying to try and go to my donor plot and get 1 fps cause of Simply having a pumpkin farm right next to me.Posted in: PC Servers
I also love how much we are crashing today lol the server seems to be having issues with crashing lately. Wow how many times is that now that we have crashed after being up for less than 5 min? This is some of the worst I have seen on this server yet.
