    posted a message on Please ban the users who request for mods/addons for console Minecraft

    Banning for simply requesting is ridiculous. I'm not sure why this comes up as frequently as it does, but it's like suspending someone's drivers license for a single speeding ticket. Frivolous. Warnings are already issued and further action taken as required.


    If you haven't noticed, people do not know how to read rules.

    As long as you run OptiFine with it, you should be okay. You will definitely see frame drops here and there on that card, though.

    posted a message on [Resolved] Do I have to pay donation taxes for my server if im under 14?

    Assuming you live in the United States, the IRS usually wants you to report any income, no matter how big or small of an amount. That said, seeing as you're a minor, there's usually never a problem. The vast majority of people will not be making enough money to make it even worth reporting.


    Services such as PayPal usually require you to submit tax information after $20,000 in G&S payments or 200 total transactions for G&S (per year); whichever comes first. Refusing to do so will put limits on your account, but as long as you don't hit that threshold, you're fine.

    posted a message on Spigot 1.10.2 -- can't access plugin repository via BukkitGUI

    This is due to the recent changes to BukkitDev. BukkitGUI uses Bukget to grab plugins and update them, which is now being discontinued. It's very likely that the BukkitGUI devs will move over to Spiget, but as always, there are plugins that haven't moved to Spigot.


    So no, not your problem. You'll have to do things manually, for now at least.

    posted a message on Unban hack prevention?

    There is no such thing as force op.


    There is no such thing as force unban.


    One of the following is happening:


    • an admin account is compromised
    • your server is cracked and allows unauthenticated logins

    In either case, you have a problem. More information is needed.

    posted a message on Hamachi server only working for me :/

    Unless you absolutely cannot portfoward, your first mistake is using Hamachi. It's pretty much impossible to diagnose your issue because it can be so many different things.

    posted a message on Enjin or Other?
    Quote from InuYasha86000»

    I will say this, I host my own minecraft servers at home but I use Enjin for a free forum (don't really need much fancy stuff) and it's worked out good for the most part, the only thing that annoys me is a few months ago they added the Donation button (to upgrade a site to advanced or whatever paid is) and you cannot remove it (well there is a way but it's a pain) even if a site is happy being free, other than that it's been good.
    For a free forum host it works pretty well, and I believe your not restricted to just minecraft based forums either, but that is if you want a forum for gaming or similar.

    If you're going free, Enjin is great for the price range. If you're really looking for a professional, scalable, flexible forum solution though, Enjin is not one of those.

    For example, it makes no sense to use Enjin's ultimate plan, which is $30 a month. It's still hosted by them, certain features are still restricted, and on top of that, it's more expensive in the long run. A forum license will run you $150, give or take, and (for XenForo) $25 once a year after that for renewals. Your monthly hosting costs are maybe $15 at most if you toss it on a VPS or cloud instance. With that VPS, you can host your own TeamSpeak or Mumble server and many other things in addition to the website. It's simply a better value, and for me, that's a very important thing.

    But, I can see where someone would want Enjin. It doesn't require the maintenance or configuration that a professional board system does, and for that reason, it works great if you just want simplicity. I'm, personally, just not a fan of it though.

    posted a message on Enjin or Other?

    If you want a news portal, use WordPress, and then pick a forum software of your choice. I'd recommend XenForo or Invision Power Board. Both XF and IPB have portal functions available, so keep that in mind, but if you want a true news portal, stick to WordPress with a forum backend.


    Do not use Enjin. I've been doing this for years, servers that use Enjin are an instant no-play for me. It's slow, the cost of it makes zero sense beyond a year's time, and it's a walled garden. Want a feature? Too bad. Ask their developers, and maybe they'll get to it.

    posted a message on EULA Compliant w/ OP Prison Help

    Good luck doing this on an OP server. You'll just be laughed at and spat on by anyone willing to toss cash at you. The EULA really is not compatible with the OP model in terms of offering only cosmetics.


    That said, you can't only offer just cosmetic perks. To even remotely get people interested in donating, you'd need to do some kind of booster system that would give every single user X number of donation perks if Y donors are online. This is compatible, and will somewhat satisfy donors, but you'd need a developer, or use something like Skript. Either way, it's time-consuming and difficult.

    posted a message on Better host?

    Multicraft's load statistics generally tend to be inaccurate - especially when it comes to memory. I would ignore them.


    That said, 90 mods is... a lot. I honestly think you might have a better experience with a VPS. A lot of hosts like to jam as many users as they can on one machine when it comes to Minecraft, the 5GB of disk space is a bit of a give away, along with the $3/GB. You generally won't find space jamming on a VPS since you pay a bit of a premium for fine-grain control and all.


    If a VPS isn't your cup of tea, there are plenty of good Minecraft hosts that could suit your needs. Just do your research.

    posted a message on Having trouble adding RAM to my server

    Append this to your JVM arguments:

    -XX:MaxPermSize=512m


    Also, a new line in a .bat file indicates a new command. nogui is a Java flag, and not an individual flag or command, so it needs to be on the same line as your JVM args.
