    posted a message on [Planning/Development] Want to design a server thats not like the rest? Then look at this.
    Planning and Development
    for
    The next big server.

    Moto: "Designed by the people, made by the people, played by the people."

    !Current Phase! Phase One


    Its been a long time, I've sat and watched many servers pop up left and right. So many fads (trends of popularity) have passed. There was the time of RPG, when 15-40 RPG servers were being made a day, and 15-20 were being closed a day. Then the time of PVP which I didn't pay to much attention to. But then came the time of creative servers. This is when the Voxelbox came into its shinning moment, but even that fad died and only the strongest servers survived (the Voxelbox is the only one that really pulled though without loss). Now it seems that RPG servers are back, so like a circle this begins once again.
    So my question is to you, "What will you make of this time period, what possibly can the minds behind all these servers do to create the best server known to Minecraft?" If you have ever owned a server or currently own a server its because you had a dream and a motivation to make a big server that would stretch though a Minecraft server age, whether it be the age of PVP, RPG or creative you wanted it to last. But answer this, "How can everyone make a server and expect it to last?" Its just not logically possible.
    This is why I'm starting this project. So that people can come together and pool their ideas into this, because splitting off into a hundred servers a month just wont cut it. Its a waste of money and there's a 80% fail rate on your server. But if we come together and pool our ideas, we can make it though, our server can rise to the peak of popularity. Sadly though this can not be achieved without teamwork and dedication. So on to the jobs and what will need to be accomplished, and how YOU can become apart of this.


    Whats been decided:
    The server will be Role Playing with slight PVP such as battlegrounds and arenas. Maby wars?


    Here is a list of all the jobs that will need to be filled for the planning of this server.
    :Phase One, Planning/Development Teams:
    >Server basics Planners:
    List bellow is what they'll cover.
    - What type of server. (will be determined by the poll or by the team)
    - Goal of the server
    - Main thesis statement/key point of the server. (such as theme and style)

    >Gameplay mechanics Designers:
    List bellow is what they'll cover.
    - Plugins (includes custom plugins)
    - Find custom plugin coders
    - Config configuration for the plugin
    - Permissions system

    >Server Story Designers(!If! rp is chosen)
    - Lore creators (not the writing of the lore, this is the brainstorming of the lore)
    - Documenters (people who will take note of the lore creation and write it down for record keeping. Will also act as a quality filter)

    >PVP designer/coordinator (!If! pvp is chosen)
    - Designers (Think "How and were will the people PVP)
    - Event brainstormer (What kind of interactive events can take place)

    These are the most essential people at this point in time. Yes I know what your thinking "But don't we need builders?" Not at this time no. So many servers skip to building when they don't even know what to build. Once all the planning is done we will move to the building and terraforming of the world.

    :Phase Two, Public Awareness and Artistic Representation Teams:
    > Artists
    - Concept art for the forum post. (preferable hand drawn)
    - Banners for Public Awareness
    - Server logo For more Public Awareness
    - Custom Gui designs for the Plugin Creators

    > Public Representation Team
    - Motivational Speakers that can make our forum post sound convincing.
    - People to post in looking for server posts, and other forums about Minecraft.
    - !Maby! Public Relationship's manager (someone who makes sure were on good standings with the public)

    This is also the stage were the server configs should be finished and the final planning of the server is coming into shape.

    :Phase Three, Creation Teams and Public Awareness Teams:
    > Designers
    - Terraformers
    - City planners
    - builders

    > Advertiser
    - Creators/Maintainers of the Youtube account. (upload videos and respond to peoples questions on them)
    - !Maby! Public Forum creators
    - !Maby! Wiki creators

    More will be explained to the actual team.

    :Phase Four, Beta Testing:
    - Beta Testers

    :Phase Five, Release (if not Alpha Stage, then Release):

    Please take into effect that this application fits everything but the Tech app.



    Hello, my name is Michael Gadrim, and im going to get to the point very fast. If you want the user friendly version of my post, then use the spoiler box system bellow (which i advise, it has more pictures and the info your looking for). If you wish to read the whole thing without a organized system, then be my guest and use the second spoiler box system. ( it uses 1 spoiler box so that it doesn't take up the whole page.)
    Last but not least, id like to thank you for you time, and ill be sure to make it up to you if im permitted onto your server.

    Builder Application

    Hello my name is mgadrim96 bellow this statement will be my formal application.

    IGN: mgadrim96
    Name: Michael Gadrim
    Age: 15
    Gender: male
    Time Zone: Eastern Standard Time ( I live in Florida )
    Do you Agree to all the terms and conditions: yes
    How long have i player Minecraft?: Since the second patch of beta.
    How many servers have you been on in the past?: At least 10, all of which benefited from my creations.
    What experience do you have with server?: I have owned 3 servers, all of which i shut down due to i couldn't do what i loved to do, and that is building. I had to spend all my time fixing plugins and solving social issues.
    Do you work best in groups or by yourself?: I work great in groups as long as the people i work with understand basic building principles.
    Maturity Level 1-10: 8
    Dedication Level 1-10: 9
    TeamWork Level 1-10: 8 (if they know what they're doing)
    Type of Builder (Redstoneer, City's, Aircraft, Landscaping, Other (Please specify)): Truly im everything but redstone. I can build huge airships with excellent detail, as well as landscaping. But above all i love city planning. My pictures will show my building skill.
    Why do you want to join the team: Because i want to be apart of a server that has the will and power to go to the top. I'm tired of servers that just die out because of laziness.
    Notes:
    - I do have Skype, Ventrilio, Teamspeak, Raidcall, and i do speak quite often in regular chat. If need be i can get any other program.
    - I'm very good at building in a RPG them but i can build just as good in a creative theme.
    - I know very basic redstone.
    What role would i like: Builder or Terraformer
    Why: Because unlike most i study to build good, and above all things i believe in detail before size.
    I would like to terraform though because i love to build my own enviroments, but what ever you need me to build i can do.
    More Notes: If youd like to test my buildings skill then simply assign me a small plot of your choice and ill building you anything you want inside of that space. (building wise) By the way im decent at redstone but im no master at it.
    Pictures:


    -This is the entrance to a city i designed. Never got to finishing it because the admins of the server said that they were leaving. Note that all this was built by me.


    -This is the backside of the entrance. The garden you see was hand designed by me, and the trees are of my original design (from what i know of).


    - This is a train station. The glass shots that are held in place by the wood brackets are shots that 1 person can fit into and travel downwards at a fast speed. The flag in the background is my cities flag. This project was also not finished seeing as the admin left and shut off the server with their departure.



    - This picture is of a airship i built using the "Better than Wolves" mod. I know that it looks very small and not so good, but i just finished it today so it still has alot of work left.


    -This is a small project i did when i was bored. I turned a whole lake to ice and made a snow temple on it. ( i did this when i was bored so yes it may be simple)

    and
    But sadly the second picture is a bad picture of the sewer i built.


    This is a picture of a old Fort that i built. It was based off a winter barbarian theme.


    Picture of the entrance to a dungeon i made. Sadly i couldn't find the pictures of the dungeon.


    This is the inside of a temple i built.


    This is of a airship i build. Based off a steampunk idea.


    Old little village i built when i first started building in minecraft.


    A very small village. Note this whole village was hand design by me. Even the terrain.


    Part of the overall village from above.


    Close up picture of the main house from the village above.


    Small hand designed lake, form the village above.

    Here are some foliage i designed.










    More pictures that are quite detailed. Detailed pictures using redpower mod.

    Things that i think you should know about me:

    What i am looking for:
    - Some sort of server that is striving to make its server better.
    - A active community, if there is not one present then........ "A admin that is avidly recruiting new players to the server."
    - Some sort of user group system. ( i dont like greifing)

    What i wish to accomplish on the server:
    - Teach and help new builders master their building style.
    - Last but not least, benefit the server with my creations.

    My building style goes like this:
    First build a starting point
    - then construct a basis for main point of intresest (what i want people to see first when they see what ive built).
    - After that i begin to expand, i branch off the original design.


    Rules to my building sytle:
    One- Never use obasidian, tnt, diamond blocks, iron blocks, or gold blocks.
    Two- Always focus on detail, never focus on the size of the project.
    Three- At least try to implement one if not two moving elements. (water, pistons, or lava.)
    Four- Never ever build a flat walled surface. As in building a house with no details on the sides.

    Plugins i know how to use:
    -Permissions
    -LWC
    -Citizens (to a extent)
    -World edit
    -Voxel Sniper
    I know quite a few more but im not sure if they've gone into inactivity. Plus many many more.

    Skills i bring to the table:
    - Skin edit. I can make the server some skins if need be.
    - Server Administration skills.
    - Contacts that are very good at redstone.
    - Fraps, so yes i can record but i do not edit, someone else would have to do that.
    - Forum post coding skills. (as in this post Im making now, i could code to look very nice and have all kinds of cool features. So if you wish i can code your forum post.
    - Active member of a community once people get to know me.

    Links to my old servers that i used to own:
    -MY first RPG server
    -Same server different post.

    Moderator Application

    Seeing as I have decided to make this my main goal and target (to benefit the server) i wish to apply for the mod status. Note that i am ok if you wish to over look this, i simply do this so that if you need someone on Eastern Standard time and has previous skill with administrating a server i can. My app will be bellow in a spoiler box. It is hand made there was no designated template i followed.
    Formal Application:

    Name:My name is mgadrim96 and my full/real name is Michael Gadrim.

    Why am i applying?:I am applying for the Moderator status because i wish to benefit this server by rooting out mean players, and potential greifers. I also wish to benefit the players by nicely correcting them if they begin to get to aggressive.

    I am 15 years old but i am very rational, and i take pride in my way of determining who's right from wrong.

    Why should you pick me?: Well its not a matter of why me, its a matter of who has what you need. If my skills are what you need in a moderator then i may suit you best. But there are many people in Minecraft and each one has a different set of skills, so i may not be the best fit.

    How much time can i dedicate to the server?: As much as i can i do have school during the week but i get on Minecraft everyday for 4 hours. On the weekends however I'm on almost all day.
    (If you wish for me to answer any questions about my mod app please either pm me or write post a comment and i will fix this app.)

    What makes me able to be a mod?: Well I've been a mod on about 3 servers and admin on 4. All of which appreciated me for how much i helped people. I do not get angry at people unless the down right rude to someone. Reason being is this "treat others as you want to be treated." I believe that if someone wants to put them selves in the shoes of a angry person then they should expect others to do the same to defend there friend. So with that said i will be calm and collective until the point when the person loses all reasoning and takes it into his own hands to show anger.
    Suggestions and Ideas for the servers development:

    General Ideas:

    First: would be that i believe "we as a server (even though im not accepted yet) should form a group of people who understand basic economy concepts and create a server specific economy system." For example, minecraft has alot of items that are not used or have a physical use. Such as the ids 34, 36, 104, and 105, and 368 (as i know of). These items can be used as ingame currency so that we can remove a economy plugin to relieve stress on the server. This would also encourage minor pvp so that when someone kills a enemy they have a chance to loot the "currency" off the loot that is dropped. But back to my point, i think we should form a group that will focus on the economy of the server. Plugins should only be used for things that we can not physically implement into the server.
    Link to the item ids:
    http://www.minecraftwiki.net/images/8/8c/DataValuesBeta.png

    Secondly: is that a youtube channel for our server should be created. This channel will hold things like tutorials, lore of the server, trailers, update notes, and misc. things.

    Server specific ideas:


    Patches: Have you played any mmorpg? Have you noticed they release patches to keep the game interesting. We can do the same! Well simply build a new expansion or a world event and set it lose. This will keep players entertained and always busy with something to do.

    Server holidays: In World of Warcraft, Brewfest is a time of beer drinking fun. We should create holidays such as this. I will keep people in the role playing mode. Plus it'll influence friendship and co-op between players. Which in-turn creates a sense of a good community.

    A system of money exchange: On the server webpage we should create a section were you can buy special items. Since 1.9 is coming out soon potions will become a big thing. The ingredients will be even more valuable. I know of a plugin that takes a code such as this "15357995" (a product code) and when the player enters it the code is deleted and the item for the code is handed to he/she. You obtain the code by donating/paying on the website. Prices could go like this:
    - 5 high tier potion = $1
    - 1 Bundle of assorted herbs (20 assorted herbs) = $2
    This is just a example many things can be sold this way. Plus the server will benefit from this money.
    For ease of access the plugin i advise to do this with is: BuyCraft(but this can also be done manually if wanted)

    Reputation points: This is a point system that will determine the active players from the none active. If you complete a quest on the server you can earn Reputation points with your element. These points can then be exchanged for titles. The titles can be implemented with a chat plugin by using the prefixes. This will give people a sense of connection with their element.

    World Events: This is a event that effects the lore and direction of the RPG. These should occur at least 1 or every 2 months. This will keep people entertained. Plus there could be quests for these events and the quests will pass out World Events points. Which can be turned in for special items and titles.

    World Competitions: This is a competition that the whole world can compete in. for example a fishing contest ( i think fishing is possible on server, i don't remember). Everyone will fish around the world and who ever has the most fish win. This would also encourage minor pvp because if someone runs across a enemy they could kill them and steal there fish. The winner would win either reputation points with the element or World Event Points im not sure.

    World Event Titles: These can be bought with World event points. Same thing a reputation points, there earned by completing the Word event quests. (The only exception to this is that only 1 title can be used at a time.)

    Heres some examples of the Titles system.
    #1: Gurwulf, Commander of Air
    #2: PlatonicForm, Defender of Water
    #3: Life Shaper, Eversorgod
    #4: Kunamikai the Missionary
    #5: mattyuk, Ambassador of Earth
    #6: BitCrack, Squire of the Void

    Server Player Guide:

    This is a idea that most servers don't actually do. Have you ever bought a game and wanted the guide for it to? To find all the cool nick nacks and tricks to the game? Well that's what this guide will do. It will explain the core mechanics of our server, ways to generate supplies that you'll need, details about how to complete quests, maps of the world, a rundown of the lore, ways to get reputation points fast....etc.

    May it be noted that if you'd like this to be done, i would not mind making it my main goal for the server.

    Plugins for the server:

    Pylamo RPG: this allows the use of parties, guilds, and if I'm correct guild achievements. For more detailed info... Pylamo RPG plugin.

    Spout: This allows for server mods, such as health bar above players heads, and all kinds of cool things that make up a rpg server. Plus last time i checked its not mandatory if you don't want it, but you do want to play on the server. Spout, a Minecraft server mod manager.

    LoreTime: Creates time and dates for the server. So if you login itll tell you time time and date to what every you set it as.LoreTime. Time and Date plugin.

    MyTitles4, and MyTitles3: This plugin allows for a more interactive title management system.MyTitles4, and MyTitles3

    mmoMinecraft Suit: This is a collection of plugins that use the Spout mod to make minecraft feel like a true role playing game. It included easy to use chat channels, i visible party system (not a party system that uses the chat box), and a whole lot more. These plugins are also very good to have because they only work for people with the spout mod downloaded. so if someone just wants to play on the server without the mod they can. but if they want to get into heavy role playing, they have the choice. These plugins in the mmoMinecraft Suit are all extentions of the spout mod. mmoMinecraft Suite, a collection of RPG plugins.

    Death and Rebirth: This plugin allows for a more role playing death experience. When you die instead of coming back to life you become a ghost. When in ghost form you either have to be resurrected or you have to travel to a shrine. This is very useful when it comes to a rpg feel. Please do read the page, i may have described this horribly. This is also a extension of the spout mod. Death and Rebirth

    BuyCraft: This is for the idea of a system of money exchange. So that if you buy something from the website, this will automatically handle the transaction and hand the buyer what he needs without you having to do anything.BuyCraft

    SpoutTrade: This adds in a visual UI for trading. So instead of dropping items onto the floor to trade, you now get a trade window. SpoutTrade

    Redstone Development Center (RDC):

    This will be a place were the redstone will be invented on the server. Instead of just saying redstones on the server, this will make a role playing feel so that the redstone technology has to be invented first before its use. This is not my most favorite idea because it will be hard to manage what people can and cant build with redstone.

I believe that if someone wants to put them selves in the shoes of a angry person then they should expect others to do the same to defend there friend. So with that said i will be calm and collective until the point when the person loses all reasoning and takes it into his own hands to show anger.

    Suggestions and Ideas for the servers development:

    General Ideas:

    First: would be that i believe "we as a server (even though im not accepted yet) should form a group of people who understand basic economy concepts and create a server specific economy system." For example, minecraft has alot of items that are not used or have a physical use. Such as the ids 34, 36, 104, and 105, and 368 (as i know of). These items can be used as ingame currency so that we can remove a economy plugin to relieve stress on the server. This would also encourage minor pvp so that when someone kills a enemy they have a chance to loot the "currency" off the loot that is dropped. But back to my point, i think we should form a group that will focus on the economy of the server. Plugins should only be used for things that we can not physically implement into the server.
    Link to the item ids:
    http://www.minecraftwiki.net/images/8/8c/DataValuesBeta.png

    Secondly: is that a youtube channel for our server should be created. This channel will hold things like tutorials, lore of the server, trailers, update notes, and misc. things.


    Server specific ideas:


    Patches: Have you played any mmorpg? Have you noticed they release patches to keep the game interesting. We can do the same! Well simply build a new expansion or a world event and set it lose. This will keep players entertained and always busy with something to do.

    Server holidays: In World of Warcraft, Brewfest is a time of beer drinking fun. We should create holidays such as this. I will keep people in the role playing mode. Plus it'll influence friendship and co-op between players. Which in-turn creates a sense of a good community.

    A system of money exchange: On the server webpage we should create a section were you can buy special items. Since 1.9 is coming out soon potions will become a big thing. The ingredients will be even more valuable. I know of a plugin that takes a code such as this "15357995" (a product code) and when the player enters it the code is deleted and the item for the code is handed to he/she. You obtain the code by donating/paying on the website. Prices could go like this:
    - 5 high tier potion = $1
    - 1 Bundle of assorted herbs (20 assorted herbs) = $2
    This is just a example many things can be sold this way. Plus the server will benefit from this money.
    For ease of access the plugin i advise to do this with is: BuyCraft(but this can also be done manually if wanted)

    Reputation points: This is a point system that will determine the active players from the none active. If you complete a quest on the server you can earn Reputation points with your element. These points can then be exchanged for titles. The titles can be implemented with a chat plugin by using the prefixes. This will give people a sense of connection with their element.

    World Events: This is a event that effects the lore and direction of the RPG. These should occur at least 1 or every 2 months. This will keep people entertained. Plus there could be quests for these events and the quests will pass out World Events points. Which can be turned in for special items and titles.

    World Competitions: This is a competition that the whole world can compete in. for example a fishing contest ( i think fishing is possible on server, i don't remember). Everyone will fish around the world and who ever has the most fish win. This would also encourage minor pvp because if someone runs across a enemy they could kill them and steal there fish. The winner would win either reputation points with the element or World Event Points im not sure.

    World Event Titles: These can be bought with World event points. Same thing a reputation points, there earned by completing the Word event quests. (The only exception to this is that only 1 title can be used at a time.)

    Heres some examples of the Titles system.
    #1: Gurwulf, Commander of Air
    #2: PlatonicForm, Defender of Water
    #3: Life Shaper, Eversorgod
    #4: Kunamikai the Missionary
    #5: mattyuk, Ambassador of Earth
    #6: BitCrack, Squire of the Void


    Server Player Guide:

    This is a idea that most servers don't actually do. Have you ever bought a game and wanted the guide for it to? To find all the cool nick nacks and tricks to the game? Well that's what this guide will do. It will explain the core mechanics of our server, ways to generate supplies that you'll need, details about how to complete quests, maps of the world, a rundown of the lore, ways to get reputation points fast....etc.

    May it be noted that if you'd like this to be done, i would not mind making it my main goal for the server.


    Plugins for the server:

    Pylamo RPG: this allows the use of parties, guilds, and if I'm correct guild achievements. For more detailed info... Pylamo RPG plugin.

    Spout: This allows for server mods, such as health bar above players heads, and all kinds of cool things that make up a rpg server. Plus last time i checked its not mandatory if you don't want it, but you do want to play on the server. Spout, a Minecraft server mod manager.

    LoreTime: Creates time and dates for the server. So if you login itll tell you time time and date to what every you set it as.LoreTime. Time and Date plugin.

    MyTitles4, and MyTitles3: This plugin allows for a more interactive title management system.MyTitles4, and MyTitles3

    mmoMinecraft Suit: This is a collection of plugins that use the Spout mod to make minecraft feel like a true role playing game. It included easy to use chat channels, i visible party system (not a party system that uses the chat box), and a whole lot more. These plugins are also very good to have because they only work for people with the spout mod downloaded. so if someone just wants to play on the server without the mod they can. but if they want to get into heavy role playing, they have the choice. These plugins in the mmoMinecraft Suit are all extentions of the spout mod. mmoMinecraft Suite, a collection of RPG plugins.

    Death and Rebirth: This plugin allows for a more role playing death experience. When you die instead of coming back to life you become a ghost. When in ghost form you either have to be resurrected or you have to travel to a shrine. This is very useful when it comes to a rpg feel. Please do read the page, i may have described this horribly. This is also a extension of the spout mod. Death and Rebirth

    BuyCraft: This is for the idea of a system of money exchange. So that if you buy something from the website, this will automatically handle the transaction and hand the buyer what he needs without you having to do anything.BuyCraft

    SpoutTrade: This adds in a visual UI for trading. So instead of dropping items onto the floor to trade, you now get a trade window. SpoutTrade

    Redstone Development Center (RDC):
    This will be a place were the redstone will be invented on the server. Instead of just saying redstones on the server, this will make a role playing feel so that the redstone technology has to be invented first before its use. This is not my most favorite idea because it will be hard to manage what people can and cant build with redstone.


    One last thing, please like this comment if you found the info helpful or creative.

    Builder Application

    Hello my name is mgadrim96 bellow this statement will be my formal application.

    IGN: mgadrim96
    Name: Michael Gadrim
    Age: 15
    Gender: male
    Time Zone: Eastern Standard Time ( I live in Florida )
    Do you Agree to all the terms and conditions: yes
    How long have i player Minecraft?: Since the second patch of beta.
    How many servers have you been on in the past?: At least 10, all of which benefited from my creations.
    What experience do you have with server?: I have owned 3 servers, all of which i shut down due to i couldn't do what i loved to do, and that is building. I had to spend all my time fixing plugins and solving social issues.
    Do you work best in groups or by yourself?: I work great in groups as long as the people i work with understand basic building principles.
    Maturity Level 1-10: 8
    Dedication Level 1-10: 9
    TeamWork Level 1-10: 8 (if they know what they're doing)
    Type of Builder (Redstoneer, City's, Aircraft, Landscaping, Other (Please specify)): Truly im everything but redstone. I can build huge airships with excellent detail, as well as landscaping. But above all i love city planning. My pictures will show my building skill.
    Why do you want to join the team: Because i want to be apart of a server that has the will and power to go to the top. I'm tired of servers that just die out because of laziness.
    Notes:
    - I do have Skype, Ventrilio, Teamspeak, Raidcall, and i do speak quite often in regular chat. If need be i can get any other program.
    - I'm very good at building in a RPG them but i can build just as good in a creative theme.
    - I know very basic redstone.
    What role would i like: Builder or Terraformer
    Why: Because unlike most i study to build good, and above all things i believe in detail before size.
    I would like to terraform though because i love to build my own enviroments, but what ever you need me to build i can do.
    More Notes: If youd like to test my buildings skill then simply assign me a small plot of your choice and ill building you anything you want inside of that space. (building wise) By the way im decent at redstone but im no master at it.
    Pictures:


    -This is the entrance to a city i designed. Never got to finishing it because the admins of the server said that they were leaving. Note that all this was built by me.


    -This is the backside of the entrance. The garden you see was hand designed by me, and the trees are of my original design (from what i know of).


    - This is a train station. The glass shots that are held in place by the wood brackets are shots that 1 person can fit into and travel downwards at a fast speed. The flag in the background is my cities flag. This project was also not finished seeing as the admin left and shut off the server with their departure.



    - This picture is of a airship i built using the "Better than Wolves" mod. I know that it looks very small and not so good, but i just finished it today so it still has alot of work left.


    -This is a small project i did when i was bored. I turned a whole lake to ice and made a snow temple on it. ( i did this when i was bored so yes it may be simple)

    and
    But sadly the second picture is a bad picture of the sewer i built.


    This is a picture of a old Fort that i built. It was based off a winter barbarian theme.


    Picture of the entrance to a dungeon i made. Sadly i couldn't find the pictures of the dungeon.


    This is the inside of a temple i built.


    This is of a airship i build. Based off a steampunk idea.


    Old little village i built when i first started building in minecraft.


    A very small village. Note this whole village was hand design by me. Even the terrain.


    Part of the overall village from above.


    Close up picture of the main house from the village above.


    Small hand designed lake, form the village above.

    Here are some foliage i designed.










    More pictures that are quite detailed. Detailed pictures using redpower mod.

    Things that i think you should know about me:

    What i am looking for:
    - Some sort of server that is striving to make its server better.
    - A active community, if there is not one present then........ "A admin that is avidly recruiting new players to the server."
    - Some sort of user group system. ( i dont like greifing)

    What i wish to accomplish on the server:
    - Teach and help new builders master their building style.
    - Last but not least, benefit the server with my creations.

    My building style goes like this:
    First build a starting point
    - then construct a basis for main point of intresest (what i want people to see first when they see what ive built).
    - After that i begin to expand, i branch off the original design.


    Rules to my building sytle:
    One- Never use obasidian, tnt, diamond blocks, iron blocks, or gold blocks.
    Two- Always focus on detail, never focus on the size of the project.
    Three- At least try to implement one if not two moving elements. (water, pistons, or lava.)
    Four- Never ever build a flat walled surface. As in building a house with no details on the sides.

    Plugins i know how to use:
    -Permissions
    -LWC
    -Citizens (to a extent)
    -World edit
    -Voxel Sniper
    I know quite a few more but im not sure if they've gone into inactivity. Plus many many more.

    Skills i bring to the table:
    - Skin edit. I can make the server some skins if need be.
    - Server Administration skills.
    - Contacts that are very good at redstone.
    - Fraps, so yes i can record but i do not edit, someone else would have to do that.
    - Forum post coding skills. (as in this post Im making now, i could code to look very nice and have all kinds of cool features. So if you wish i can code your forum post.
    - Active member of a community once people get to know me.

    Links to my old servers that i used to own:
    -MY first RPG server
    -Same server different post.

    Moderator Application

    Seeing as I have decided to make this my main goal and target (to benefit the server) i wish to apply for the mod status. Note that i am ok if you wish to over look this, i simply do this so that if you need someone on Eastern Standard time and has previous skill with administrating a server i can. My app will be bellow in a spoiler box. It is hand made there was no designated template i followed.
    Formal Application:

    Name:My name is mgadrim96 and my full/real name is Michael Gadrim.

    Why am i applying?:I am applying for the Moderator status because i wish to benefit this server by rooting out mean players, and potential greifers. I also wish to benefit the players by nicely correcting them if they begin to get to aggressive.

    I am 15 years old but i am very rational, and i take pride in my way of determining who's right from wrong.

    Why should you pick me?: Well its not a matter of why me, its a matter of who has what you need. If my skills are what you need in a moderator then i may suit you best. But there are many people in Minecraft and each one has a different set of skills, so i may not be the best fit.

    How much time can i dedicate to the server?: As much as i can i do have school during the week but i get on Minecraft everyday for 4 hours. On the weekends however I'm on almost all day.
    (If you wish for me to answer any questions about my mod app please either pm me or write post a comment and i will fix this app.)

    What makes me able to be a mod?: Well I've been a mod on about 3 servers and admin on 4. All of which appreciated me for how much i helped people. I do not get angry at people unless the down right rude to someone. Reason being is this "treat others as you want to be treated." I believe that if someone wants to put them selves in the shoes of a angry person then they should expect others to do the same to defend there friend. So with that said i will be calm and collective until the point when the person loses all reasoning and takes it into his own hands to show anger.
    Suggestions and Ideas for the servers development:

    General Ideas:

    First: would be that i believe "we as a server (even though im not accepted yet) should form a group of people who understand basic economy concepts and create a server specific economy system." For example, minecraft has alot of items that are not used or have a physical use. Such as the ids 34, 36, 104, and 105, and 368 (as i know of). These items can be used as ingame currency so that we can remove a economy plugin to relieve stress on the server. This would also encourage minor pvp so that when someone kills a enemy they have a chance to loot the "currency" off the loot that is dropped. But back to my point, i think we should form a group that will focus on the economy of the server. Plugins should only be used for things that we can not physically implement into the server.

    Secondly: is that a youtube channel for our server should be created. This channel will hold things like tutorials, lore of the server, trailers, update notes, and misc. things.

    Server holidays: In World of Warcraft, Brewfest is a time of beer drinking fun. We should create holidays such as this. I will keep people in the role playing mode. Plus it'll influence friendship and co-op between players. Which in-turn creates a sense of a good community.

    A system of money exchange: On the server webpage we should create a section were you can buy special items. Since 1.9 is coming out soon potions will become a big thing. The ingredients will be even more valuable. I know of a plugin that takes a code such as this "15357995" (a product code) and when the player enters it the code is deleted and the item for the code is handed to he/she. You obtain the code by donating/paying on the website. Prices could go like this:
    - 5 high tier potion = $1
    - 1 Bundle of assorted herbs (20 assorted herbs) = $2
    This is just a example many things can be sold this way. Plus the server will benefit from this money.
    For ease of access the plugin i advise to do this with is: BuyCraft(but this can also be done manually if wanted)

    Reputation points: This is a point system that will determine the active players from the none active. If you complete a quest on the server you can earn Reputation points with your element.

    Name:My name is mgadrim96 and my full/real name is Michael Gadrim.

    Why am i applying?:I am applying for the Moderator status because i wish to benefit this server by rooting out mean players, and potential greifers. I also wish to benefit the players by nicely correcting them if they begin to get to aggressive.

    I am 15 years old but i am very rational, and i take pride in my way of determining who's right from wrong.

    Why should you pick me?: Well its not a matter of why me, its a matter of who has what you need. If my skills are what you need in a moderator then i may suit you best. But there are many people in Minecraft and each one has a different set of skills, so i may not be the best fit.

    How much time can i dedicate to the server?: As much as i can i do have school during the week but i get on Minecraft everyday for 4 hours. On the weekends however I'm on almost all day.
    (If you wish for me to answer any questions about my mod app please either pm me or write post a comment and i will fix this app.)

    What makes me able to be a mod?: Well I've been a mod on about 3 servers and admin on 4. All of which appreciated me for how much i helped people. I do not get angry at people unless the down right rude to someone. Reason being is this "treat others as you want to be treated." I believe that if someone wants to put them selves in the shoes of a angry person then they should expect others to do the same to defend there friend. So with that said i will be calm and collective until the point when the person loses all reasoning and takes it into his own hands to show anger.

    Suggestions and Ideas for the servers development:

    General Ideas:

    First: would be that i believe "we as a server (even though im not accepted yet) should form a group of people who understand basic economy concepts and create a server specific economy system." For example, minecraft has alot of items that are not used or have a physical use. Such as the ids 34, 36, 104, and 105, and 368 (as i know of). These items can be used as ingame currency so that we can remove a economy plugin to relieve stress on the server. This would also encourage minor pvp so that when someone kills a enemy they have a chance to loot the "currency" off the loot that is dropped. But back to my point, i think we should form a group that will focus on the economy of the server. Plugins should only be used for things that we can not physically implement into the server.
    Link to the item ids:
    http://www.minecraftwiki.net/images/8/8c/DataValuesBeta.png

    Secondly: is that a youtube channel for our server should be created. This channel will hold things like tutorials, lore of the server, trailers, update notes, and misc. things.


    Server specific ideas:


    Patches: Have you played any mmorpg? Have you noticed they release patches to keep the game interesting. We can do the same! Well simply build a new expansion or a world event and set it lose. This will keep players entertained and always busy with something to do.

    Server holidays: In World of Warcraft, Brewfest is a time of beer drinking fun. We should create holidays such as this. I will keep people in the role playing mode. Plus it'll influence friendship and co-op between players. Which in-turn creates a sense of a good community.

    A system of money exchange: On the server webpage we should create a section were you can buy special items. Since 1.9 is coming out soon potions will become a big thing. The ingredients will be even more valuable. I know of a plugin that takes a code such as this "15357995" (a product code) and when the player enters it the code is deleted and the item for the code is handed to he/she. You obtain the code by donating/paying on the website. Prices could go like this:
    - 5 high tier potion = $1
    - 1 Bundle of assorted herbs (20 assorted herbs) = $2
    This is just a example many things can be sold this way. Plus the server will benefit from this money.
    For ease of access the plugin i advise to do this with is: BuyCraft(but this can also be done manually if wanted)

    Reputation points: This is a point system that will determine the active players from the none active. If you complete a quest on the server you can earn Reputation points with your element. These points can then be exchanged for titles. The titles can be implemented with a chat plugin by using the prefixes. This will give people a sense of connection with their element.

    World Events: This is a event that effects the lore and direction of the RPG. These should occur at least 1 or every 2 months. This will keep people entertained. Plus there could be quests for these events and the quests will pass out World Events points. Which can be turned in for special items and titles.

    World Competitions: This is a competition that the whole world can compete in. for example a fishing contest ( i think fishing is possible on server, i don't remember). Everyone will fish around the world and who ever has the most fish win. This would also encourage minor pvp because if someone runs across a enemy they could kill them and steal there fish. The winner would win either reputation points with the element or World Event Points im not sure.

    World Event Titles: These can be bought with World event points. Same thing a reputation points, there earned by completing the Word event quests. (The only exception to this is that only 1 title can be used at a time.)

    Heres some examples of the Titles system.
    #1: Gurwulf, Commander of Air
    #2: PlatonicForm, Defender of Water
    #3: Life Shaper, Eversorgod
    #4: Kunamikai the Missionary
    #5: mattyuk, Ambassador of Earth
    #6: BitCrack, Squire of the Void


    Server Player Guide:

    This is a idea that most servers don't actually do. Have you ever bought a game and wanted the guide for it to? To find all the cool nick nacks and tricks to the game? Well that's what this guide will do. It will explain the core mechanics of our server, ways to generate supplies that you'll need, details about how to complete quests, maps of the world, a rundown of the lore, ways to get reputation points fast....etc.

    May it be noted that if you'd like this to be done, i would not mind making it my main goal for the server.


    Plugins for the server:

    Pylamo RPG: this allows the use of parties, guilds, and if I'm correct guild achievements. For more detailed info... Pylamo RPG plugin.

    Spout: This allows for server mods, such as health bar above players heads, and all kinds of cool things that make up a rpg server. Plus last time i checked its not mandatory if you don't want it, but you do want to play on the server. Spout, a Minecraft server mod manager.

    LoreTime: Creates time and dates for the server. So if you login itll tell you time time and date to what every you set it as.LoreTime. Time and Date plugin.

    MyTitles4, and MyTitles3: This plugin allows for a more interactive title management system.MyTitles4, and MyTitles3

    mmoMinecraft Suit: This is a collection of plugins that use the Spout mod to make minecraft feel like a true role playing game. It included easy to use chat channels, i visible party system (not a party system that uses the chat box), and a whole lot more. These plugins are also very good to have because they only work for people with the spout mod downloaded. so if someone just wants to play on the server without the mod they can. but if they want to get into heavy role playing, they have the choice. These plugins in the mmoMinecraft Suit are all extentions of the spout mod. mmoMinecraft Suite, a collection of RPG plugins.

    Death and Rebirth: This plugin allows for a more role playing death experience. When you die instead of coming back to life you become a ghost. When in ghost form you either have to be resurrected or you have to travel to a shrine. This is very useful when it comes to a rpg feel. Please do read the page, i may have described this horribly. This is also a extension of the spout mod. Death and Rebirth

    BuyCraft: This is for the idea of a system of money exchange. So that if you buy something from the website, this will automatically handle the transaction and hand the buyer what he needs without you having to do anything.BuyCraft

    SpoutTrade: This adds in a visual UI for trading. So instead of dropping items onto the floor to trade, you now get a trade window. SpoutTrade

    Redstone Development Center (RDC):
    This will be a place were the redstone will be invented on the server. Instead of just saying redstones on the server, this will make a role playing feel so that the redstone technology has to be invented first before its use. This is not my most favorite idea because it will be hard to manage what people can and cant build with redstone.


    One last thing, please like this comment if you found the info helpful or creative.

    Why do you want to join the team: Because i want to be apart of a server that has the will and power to go to the top. I'm tired of servers that just die out because of laziness.
    Notes:
    - I do have Skype, Ventrilio, Teamspeak, Raidcall, and i do speak quite often in regular chat. If need be i can get any other program.

    Pictures:
    [spoiler]

    -This is the entrance to a city i designed. Never got to finishing it because the admins of the server said that they were leaving. Note that all this was built by me.


    -This is the backside of the entrance. The garden you see was hand designed by me, and the trees are of my original design (from what i know of).


    - This is a train station. The glass shots that are held in place by the wood brackets are shots that 1 person can fit into and travel downwards at a fast speed. The flag in the background is my cities flag. This project was also not finished seeing as the admin left and shut off the server with their departure.



    - This picture is of a airship i built using the "Better than Wolves" mod. I know that it looks very small and not so good, but i just finished it today so it still has alot of work left.


    -This is a small project i did when i was bored. I turned a whole lake to ice and made a snow temple on it. ( i did this when i was bored so yes it may be simple)

    and
    But sadly the second picture is a bad picture of the sewer i built.


    This is a picture of a old Fort that i built. It was based off a winter barbarian theme.


    Picture of the entrance to a dungeon i made. Sadly i couldn't find the pictures of the dungeon.


    This is the inside of a temple i built.


    This is of a airship i build. Based off a steampunk idea.


    Old little village i built when i first started building in minecraft.


    A very small village. Note this whole village was hand design by me. Even the terrain.


    Part of the overall village from above.


    Close up picture of the main house from the village above.


    Small hand designed lake, form the village above.

    More pictures that are quite detailed. Detailed pictures using redpower mod.

    [/spoiler]
    Things that i think you should know about me:
    [spoiler]
    What i am looking for:
    - Some sort of server that is striving to make its server better.
    - A active community, if there is not one present then........ "A admin that is avidly recruiting new players to the server."
    - Some sort of user group system. ( i dont like greifing)

    What i wish to accomplish on the server:
    - Teach and help new builders master their building style.
    - Last but not least, benefit the server with my creations.

    My building style goes like this:
    First build a starting point
    - then construct a basis for main point of intresest (what i want people to see first when they see what ive built).
    - After that i begin to expand, i branch off the original design.


    Rules to my building sytle:
    One- Never use obasidian, tnt, diamond blocks, iron blocks, or gold blocks.
    Two- Always focus on detail, never focus on the size of the project.
    Three- At least try to implement one if not two moving elements. (water, pistons, or lava.)
    Four- Never ever build a flat walled surface. As in building a house with no details on the sides.

    Plugins i know how to use:
    -Permissions
    -LWC
    -Citizens (to a extent)
    -World edit
    -Voxel Sniper
    I know quite a few more but im not sure if they've gone into inactivity. Plus many many more.

    Skills i bring to the table:
    - Skin edit. I can make the server some skins if need be.
    - Server Administration skills.
    - Contacts that are very good at redstone.
    - Fraps, so yes i can record but i do not edit, someone else would have to do that.
    - Forum post coding skills. (as in this post Im making now, i could code to look very nice and have all kinds of cool features. So if you wish i can code your forum post.
    - Active member of a community once people get to know me.

    Links to my old servers that i used to own:
    -MY first RPG server
    -Same server different post.

    Moderator Application
    [spoiler]
    Seeing as I have decided to make this my main goal and target (to benefit the server) i wish to apply for the mod status. Note that i am ok if you wish to over look this, i simply do this so that if you need someone on Eastern Standard time and has previous skill with administrating a server i can. My app will be bellow in a spoiler box. It is hand made there was no designated template i followed.
    Formal Application:
    [spoiler]
    Name:My name is mgadrim96 and my full/real name is Michael Gadrim.

    Why am i applying?:I am applying for the Moderator status because i wish to benefit this server by rooting out mean players, and potential greifers. I also wish to benefit the players by nicely correcting them if they begin to get to aggressive.

    I am 15 years old but i am very rational, and i take pride in my way of determining who's right from wrong.

    How much time can i dedicate to the server?: As much as i can i do have school during the week but i get on Minecraft everyday for 4 hours. On the weekends however I'm on almost all day.
    (If you wish for me to answer any questions about my mod app please either pm me or write post a comment and i will fix this app.)

    What makes me able to be a mod?: Well I've been a mod on about 3 servers and admin on 4. All of which appreciated me for how much i helped people.

    - Teach and help new builders master their building style.
    - Last but not least, benefit the server with my creations.

    My building style goes like this:
    First build a starting point
    - then construct a basis for main point of intresest (what i want people to see first when they see what ive built).
    - After that i begin to expand, i branch off the original design.


    Rules to my building sytle:
    One- Never use obasidian, tnt, diamond blocks, iron blocks, or gold blocks.
    Two- Always focus on detail, never focus on the size of the project.
    Three- At least try to implement one if not two moving elements. (water, pistons, or lava.)
    Four- Never ever build a flat walled surface. As in building a house with no details on the sides.

    Plugins i know how to use:
    -Permissions
    -LWC
    -Citizens (to a extent)
    -World edit
    -Voxel Sniper
    I know quite a few more but im not sure if they've gone into inactivity. Plus many many more.

    Skills i bring to the table:
    - Skin edit. I can make the server some skins if need be.
    - Server Administration skills.
    - Contacts that are very good at redstone.
    - Fraps, so yes i can record but i do not edit, someone else would have to do that.
    - Forum post coding skills. (as in this post Im making now, i could code to look very nice and have all kinds of cool features. So if you wish i can code your forum post.
    - Active member of a community once people get to know me.

    Moderator Application

    Seeing as I have decided to make this my main goal and target (to benefit the server) i wish to apply for the mod status. Note that i am ok if you wish to over look this, i simply do this so that if you need someone on Eastern Standard time and has previous skill with administrating a server i can. My app will be bellow in a spoiler box. It is hand made there was no designated template i followed.
    Formal Application:

    Name:My name is mgadrim96 and my full/real name is Michael Gadrim.

    Why am i applying?:I am applying for the Moderator status because i wish to benefit this server by rooting out mean players, and potential greifers. I also wish to benefit the players by nicely correcting them if they begin to get to aggressive.

    I am 15 years old but i am very rational, and i take pride in my way of determining who's right from wrong.

    Why should you pick me?: Well its not a matter of why me, its a matter of who has what you need. If my skills are what you need in a moderator then i may suit you best. But there are many people in Minecraft and each one has a different set of skills, so i may not be the best fit.

    How much time can i dedicate to the server?: As much as i can i do have school during the week but i get on Minecraft everyday for 4 hours. On the weekends however I'm on almost all day.
    (If you wish for me to answer any questions about my mod app please either pm me or write post a comment and i will fix this app.)

    What makes me able to be a mod?: Well I've been a mod on about 3 servers and admin on 4. All of which appreciated me for how much i helped people. I do not get angry at people unless the down right rude to someone. Reason being is this "treat others as you want to be treated." I believe that if someone wants to put them selves in the shoes of a angry person then they should expect others to do the same to defend there friend. So with that said i will be calm and collective until the point when the person loses all reasoning and takes it into his own hands to show anger.

    Suggestions and Ideas for the servers development:

    General Ideas:

    First: would be that i believe "we as a server (even though im not accepted yet) should form a group of people who understand basic economy concepts and create a server specific economy system." For example, minecraft has alot of items that are not used or have a physical use. Such as the ids 34, 36, 104, and 105, and 368 (as i know of). These items can be used as ingame currency so that we can remove a economy plugin to relieve stress on the server. This would also encourage minor pvp so that when someone kills a enemy they have a chance to loot the "currency" off the loot that is dropped. But back to my point, i think we should form a group that will focus on the economy of the server. Plugins should only be used for things that we can not physically implement into the server.
    Link to the item ids:
    http://www.minecraftwiki.net/images/8/8c/DataValuesBeta.png

    Secondly: is that a youtube channel for our server should be created. This channel will hold things like tutorials, lore of the server, trailers, update notes, and misc. things.


    Server specific ideas:


    Patches: Have you played any mmorpg? Have you noticed they release patches to keep the game interesting. We can do the same! Well simply build a new expansion or a world event and set it lose. This will keep players entertained and always busy with something to do.

    Server holidays: In World of Warcraft, Brewfest is a time of beer drinking fun. We should create holidays such as this. I will keep people in the role playing mode. Plus it'll influence friendship and co-op between players. Which in-turn creates a sense of a good community.

    A system of money exchange: On the server webpage we should create a section were you can buy special items. Since 1.9 is coming out soon potions will become a big thing. The ingredients will be even more valuable. I know of a plugin that takes a code such as this "15357995" (a product code) and when the player enters it the code is deleted and the item for the code is handed to he/she. You obtain the code by donating/paying on the website. Prices could go like this:
    - 5 high tier potion = $1
    - 1 Bundle of assorted herbs (20 assorted herbs) = $2
    This is just a example many things can be sold this way. Plus the server will benefit from this money.
    For ease of access the plugin i advise to do this with is: BuyCraft(but this can also be done manually if wanted)

    Reputation points: This is a point system that will determine the active players from the none active. If you complete a quest on the server you can earn Reputation points with your element. These points can then be exchanged for titles. The titles can be implemented with a chat plugin by using the prefixes. This will give people a sense of connection with their element.

    World Events: This is a event that effects the lore and direction of the RPG. These should occur at least 1 or every 2 months. This will keep people entertained. Plus there could be quests for these events and the quests will pass out World Events points. Which can be turned in for special items and titles.

    World Competitions: This is a competition that the whole world can compete in. for example a fishing contest ( i think fishing is possible on server, i don't remember). Everyone will fish around the world and who ever has the most fish win. This would also encourage minor pvp because if someone runs across a enemy they could kill them and steal there fish. The winner would win either reputation points with the element or World Event Points im not sure.

    World Event Titles: These can be bought with World event points. Same thing a reputation points, there earned by completing the Word event quests. (The only exception to this is that only 1 title can be used at a time.)

    Heres some examples of the Titles system.
    #1: Gurwulf, Commander of Air
    #2: PlatonicForm, Defender of Water
    #3: Life Shaper, Eversorgod
    #4: Kunamikai the Missionary
    #5: mattyuk, Ambassador of Earth
    #6: BitCrack, Squire of the Void


    Server Player Guide:

    This is a idea that most servers don't actually do. Have you ever bought a game and wanted the guide for it to? To find all the cool nick nacks and tricks to the game? Well that's what this guide will do. It will explain the core mechanics of our server, ways to generate supplies that you'll need, details about how to complete quests, maps of the world, a rundown of the lore, ways to get reputation points fast....etc.

    May it be noted that if you'd like this to be done, i would not mind making it my main goal for the server.


    Plugins for the server:

    Pylamo RPG: this allows the use of parties, guilds, and if I'm correct guild achievements. For more detailed info... Pylamo RPG plugin.

    Spout: This allows for server mods, such as health bar above players heads, and all kinds of cool things that make up a rpg server. Plus last time i checked its not mandatory if you don't want it, but you do want to play on the server. Spout, a Minecraft server mod manager.

    LoreTime: Creates time and dates for the server. So if you login itll tell you time time and date to what every you set it as.LoreTime. Time and Date plugin.

    MyTitles4, and MyTitles3: This plugin allows for a more interactive title management system.MyTitles4, and MyTitles3

    mmoMinecraft Suit: This is a collection of plugins that use the Spout mod to make minecraft feel like a true role playing game. It included easy to use chat channels, i visible party system (not a party system that uses the chat box), and a whole lot more. These plugins are also very good to have because they only work for people with the spout mod downloaded. so if someone just wants to play on the server without the mod they can. but if they want to get into heavy role playing, they have the choice. These plugins in the mmoMinecraft Suit are all extentions of the spout mod. mmoMinecraft Suite, a collection of RPG plugins.

    Death and Rebirth: This plugin allows for a more role playing death experience. When you die instead of coming back to life you become a ghost. When in ghost form you either have to be resurrected or you have to travel to a shrine. This is very useful when it comes to a rpg feel. Please do read the page, i may have described this horribly. This is also a extension of the spout mod. Death and Rebirth

    BuyCraft: This is for the idea of a system of money exchange. So that if you buy something from the website, this will automatically handle the transaction and hand the buyer what he needs without you having to do anything.BuyCraft

    SpoutTrade: This adds in a visual UI for trading. So instead of dropping items onto the floor to trade, you now get a trade window. SpoutTrade

    Redstone Development Center (RDC):
    [spoiler]
    This will be a place were the redstone will be invented on the server. Instead of just saying redstones on the server, this will make a role playing feel so that the redstone technology has to be invented first before its use. This is not my most favorite idea because it will be hard to manage what people can and cant build with redstone.

    Maturity Level 1-10: 8
    Dedication Level 1-10: 9
    TeamWork Level 1-10: 8 (if they know what they're doing)
    Type of Builder (Redstoneer, City's, Aircraft, Landscaping, Other (Please specify)): Truly im everything but redstone. I can build huge airships with excellent detail, as well as landscaping. But above all i love city planning. My pictures will show my building skill.
    Why do you want to join the team: Because i want to be apart of a server that has the will and power to go to the top. I'm tired of servers that just die out because of laziness.
    Notes:
    - I do have Skype, Ventrilio, Teamspeak, Raidcall, and i do speak quite often in regular chat. If need be i can get any other program.
    - I'm very good at building in a RPG them but i can build just as good in a creative theme.
    - I know very basic redstone.
    What role would i like: Builder or Terraformer
    Why: Because unlike most i study to build good, and above all things i believe in detail before size.
    I would like to terraform though because i love to build my own enviroments, but what ever you need me to build i can do.
    More Notes: If youd like to test my buildings skill then simply assign me a small plot of your choice and ill building you anything you want inside of that space. (building wise) By the way im decent at redstone but im no master at it.

    Pictures:
    [spoiler]

    -This is the entrance to a city i designed. Never got to finishing it because the admins of the server said that they were leaving. Note that all this was built by me.


    -This is the backside of the entrance. The garden you see was hand designed by me, and the trees are of my original design (from what i know of).


    - This is a train station. The glass shots that are held in place by the wood brackets are shots that 1 person can fit into and travel downwards at a fast speed. The flag in the background is my cities flag. This project was also not finished seeing as the admin left and shut off the server with their departure.



    - This picture is of a airship i built using the "Better than Wolves" mod. I know that it looks very small and not so good, but i just finished it today so it still has alot of work left.


    -This is a small project i did when i was bored. I turned a whole lake to ice and made a snow temple on it. ( i did this when i was bored so yes it may be simple)

    and
    But sadly the second picture is a bad picture of the sewer i built.


    This is a picture of a old Fort that i built. It was based off a winter barbarian theme.


    Picture of the entrance to a dungeon i made. Sadly i couldn't find the pictures of the dungeon.


    This is the inside of a temple i built.


    This is of a airship i build. Based off a steampunk idea.


    Old little village i built when i first started building in minecraft.


    A very small village. Note this whole village was hand design by me. Even the terrain.


    Part of the overall village from above.


    Close up picture of the main house from the village above.


    Small hand designed lake, form the village above.

    Things that i think you should know about me:
    [spoiler]
    What i am looking for:
    - Some sort of server that is striving to make its server better.
    - A active community, if there is not one present then........ "A admin that is avidly recruiting new players to the server."
    - Some sort of user group system. ( i dont like greifing)

    What i wish to accomplish on the server:
    - Teach and help new builders master their building style.
    - Last but not least, benefit the server with my creations.

    My building style goes like this:
    First build a starting point
    - then construct a basis for main point of intresest (what i want people to see first when they see what ive built).
    - After that i begin to expand, i branch off the original design.


    Rules to my building sytle:
    One- Never use obasidian, tnt, diamond blocks, iron blocks, or gold blocks.
    Two- Always focus on detail, never focus on the size of the project.
    Three- At least try to implement one if not two moving elements. (water, pistons, or lava.)
    Four- Never ever build a flat walled surface. As in building a house with no details on the sides.

    Plugins i know how to use:
    -Permissions
    -LWC
    -Citizens (to a extent)
    -World edit
    -Voxel Sniper
    I know quite a few more but im not sure if they've gone into inactivity. Plus many many more.

    Skills i bring to the table:
    - Skin edit. I can make the server some skins if need be.
    - Server Administration skills.
    - Contacts that are very good at redstone.
    - Fraps, so yes i can record but i do not edit, someone else would have to do that.
    - Forum post coding skills. (as in this post Im making now, i could code to look very nice and have all kinds of cool features. So if you wish i can code your forum post.
    - Active member of a community once people get to know me.

    -This is the backside of the entrance. The garden you see was hand designed by me, and the trees are of my original design (from what i know of).


    - This is a train station. The glass shots that are held in place by the wood brackets are shots that 1 person can fit into and travel downwards at a fast speed. The flag in the background is my cities flag. This project was also not finished seeing as the admin left and shut off the server with their departure.



    - This picture is of a airship i built using the "Better than Wolves" mod. I know that it looks very small and not so good, but i just finished it today so it still has alot of work left.


    -This is a small project i did when i was bored. I turned a whole lake to ice and made a snow temple on it. ( i did this when i was bored so yes it may be simple)

    and
    But sadly the second picture is a bad picture of the sewer i built.


    This is a picture of a old Fort that i built. It was based off a winter barbarian theme.


    Picture of the entrance to a dungeon i made. Sadly i couldn't find the pictures of the dungeon.


    This is the inside of a temple i built.


    This is of a airship i build. Based off a steampunk idea.


    Old little village i built when i first started building in minecraft.


    A very small village. Note this whole village was hand design by me. Even the terrain.


    Part of the overall village from above.


    Close up picture of the main house from the village above.


    Small hand designed lake, form the village above.

    More pictures that are quite detailed. Detailed pictures using redpower mod.


    Things that i think you should know about me:

    What i am looking for:
    - Some sort of server that is striving to make its server better.
    - A active community, if there is not one present then........ "A admin that is avidly recruiting new players to the server."
    - Some sort of user group system. ( i dont like greifing)

    What i wish to accomplish on the server:
    - Teach and help new builders master their building style.
    - Last but not least, benefit the server with my creations.

    My building style goes like this:
    First build a starting point
    - then construct a basis for main point of intresest (what i want people to see first when they see what ive built).
    - After that i begin to expand, i branch off the original design.


    Rules to my building sytle:
    One- Never use obasidian, tnt, diamond blocks, iron blocks, or gold blocks.
    Two- Always focus on detail, never focus on the size of the project.
    Three- At least try to implement one if not two moving elements. (water, pistons, or lava.)
    Four- Never ever build a flat walled surface. As in building a house with no details on the sides.

    Plugins i know how to use:
    -Permissions
    -LWC
    -Citizens (to a extent)
    -World edit
    -Voxel Sniper
    I know quite a few more but im not sure if they've gone into inactivity. Plus many many more.

    Skills i bring to the table:
    - Skin edit. I can make the server some skins if need be.
    - Server Administration skills.
    - Contacts that are very good at redstone.
    - Fraps, so yes i can record but i do not edit, someone else would have to do that.
    - Forum post coding skills. (as in this post Im making now, i could code to look very nice and have all kinds of cool features. So if you wish i can code your forum post.
    - Active member of a community once people get to know me.

    Links to my old servers that i used to own:
    -MY first RPG server
    -Same server different post.


    Moderator Application

    Seeing as I have decided to make this my main goal and target (to benefit the server) i wish to apply for the mod status. Note that i am ok if you wish to over look this, i simply do this so that if you need someone on Eastern Standard time and has previous skill with administrating a server i can. My app will be bellow in a spoiler box. It is hand made there was no designated template i followed.
    Formal Application:

    Name:My name is mgadrim96 and my full/real name is Michael Gadrim.

    Why am i applying?:I am applying for the Moderator status because i wish to benefit this server by rooting out mean players, and potential greifers. I also wish to benefit the players by nicely correcting them if they begin to get to aggressive.

    I am 15 years old but i am very rational, and i take pride in my way of determining who's right from wrong.

    Why should you pick me?: Well its not a matter of why me, its a matter of who has what you need. If my skills are what you need in a moderator then i may suit you best. But there are many people in Minecraft and each one has a different set of skills, so i may not be the best fit.

    How much time can i dedicate to the server?: As much as i can i do have school during the week but i get on Minecraft everyday for 4 hours. On the weekends however I'm on almost all day.
    (If you wish for me to answer any questions about my mod app please either pm me or write post a comment and i will fix this app.)

    What makes me able to be a mod?: Well I've been a mod on about 3 servers and admin on 4. All of which appreciated me for how much i helped people. I do not get angry at people unless the down right rude to someone. Reason being is this "treat others as you want to be treated." I believe that if someone wants to put them selves in the shoes of a angry person then they should expect others to do the same to defend there friend. So with that said i will be calm and collective until the point when the person loses all reasoning and takes it into his own hands to show anger.

    Suggestions and Ideas for the servers development:

    General Ideas:

    First: would be that i believe "we as a server (even though im not accepted yet) should form a group of people who understand basic economy concepts and create a server specific economy system." For example, minecraft has alot of items that are not used or have a physical use. Such as the ids 34, 36, 104, and 105, and 368 (as i know of). These items can be used as ingame currency so that we can remove a economy plugin to relieve stress on the server. This would also encourage minor pvp so that when someone kills a enemy they have a chance to loot the "currency" off the loot that is dropped. But back to my point, i think we should form a group that will focus on the economy of the server. Plugins should only be used for things that we can not physically implement into the server.
    Link to the item ids:
    http://www.minecraftwiki.net/images/8/8c/DataValuesBeta.png

    Secondly: is that a youtube channel for our server should be created. This channel will hold things like tutorials, lore of the server, trailers, update notes, and misc. things.


    Server specific ideas:


    Patches: Have you played any mmorpg? Have you noticed they release patches to keep the game interesting. We can do the same! Well simply build a new expansion or a world event and set it lose. This will keep players entertained and always busy with something to do.

    Server holidays: In World of Warcraft, Brewfest is a time of beer drinking fun. We should create holidays such as this. I will keep people in the role playing mode. Plus it'll influence friendship and co-op between players. Which in-turn creates a sense of a good community.

    A system of money exchange: On the server webpage we should create a section were you can buy special items. Since 1.9 is coming out soon potions will become a big thing. The ingredients will be even more valuable. I know of a plugin that takes a code such as this "15357995" (a product code) and when the player enters it the code is deleted and the item for the code is handed to he/she. You obtain the code by donating/paying on the website. Prices could go like this:
    - 5 high tier potion = $1
    - 1 Bundle of assorted herbs (20 assorted herbs) = $2
    This is just a example many things can be sold this way. Plus the server will benefit from this money.
    For ease of access the plugin i advise to do this with is: BuyCraft(but this can also be done manually if wanted)

    Reputation points: This is a point system that will determine the active players from the none active. If you complete a quest on the server you can earn Reputation points with your element. These points can then be exchanged for titles. The titles can be implemented with a chat plugin by using the prefixes. This will give people a sense of connection with their element.

    World Events: This is a event that effects the lore and direction of the RPG. These should occur at least 1 or every 2 months. This will keep people entertained. Plus there could be quests for these events and the quests will pass out World Events points. Which can be turned in for special items and titles.

    World Competitions: This is a competition that the whole world can compete in. for example a fishing contest ( i think fishing is possible on server, i don't remember). Everyone will fish around the world and who ever has the most fish win. This would also encourage minor pvp because if someone runs across a enemy they could kill them and steal there fish. The winner would win either reputation points with the element or World Event Points im not sure.

    World Event Titles: These can be bought with World event points. Same thing a reputation points, there earned by completing the Word event quests. (The only exception to this is that only 1 title can be used at a time.)

    Heres some examples of the Titles system.
    #1: Gurwulf, Commander of Air
    #2: PlatonicForm, Defender of Water
    #3: Life Shaper, Eversorgod
    #4: Kunamikai the Missionary
    #5: mattyuk, Ambassador of Earth
    #6: BitCrack, Squire of the Void


    Server Player Guide:

    This is a idea that most servers don't actually do. Have you ever bought a game and wanted the guide for it to? To find all the cool nick nacks and tricks to the game? Well that's what this guide will do. It will explain the core mechanics of our server, ways to generate supplies that you'll need, details about how to complete quests, maps of the world, a rundown of the lore, ways to get reputation points fast....etc.

    May it be noted that if you'd like this to be done, i would not mind making it my main goal for the server.


    Plugins for the server:

    Pylamo RPG: this allows the use of parties, guilds, and if I'm correct guild achievements. For more detailed info... Pylamo RPG plugin.

    Spout: This allows for server mods, such as health bar above players heads, and all kinds of cool things that make up a rpg server. Plus last time i checked its not mandatory if you don't want it, but you do want to play on the server. Spout, a Minecraft server mod manager.

    LoreTime: Creates time and dates for the server. So if you login itll tell you time time and date to what every you set it as.LoreTime. Time and Date plugin.

    MyTitles4, and MyTitles3: This plugin allows for a more interactive title management system.MyTitles4, and MyTitles3

    mmoMinecraft Suit: This is a collection of plugins that use the Spout mod to make minecraft feel like a true role playing game. It included easy to use chat channels, i visible party system (not a party system that uses the chat box), and a whole lot more. These plugins are also very good to have because they only work for people with the spout mod downloaded. so if someone just wants to play on the server without the mod they can. but if they want to get into heavy role playing, they have the choice. These plugins in the mmoMinecraft Suit are all extentions of the spout mod. mmoMinecraft Suite, a collection of RPG plugins.

    Death and Rebirth: This plugin allows for a more role playing death experience. When you die instead of coming back to life you become a ghost. When in ghost form you either have to be resurrected or you have to travel to a shrine. This is very useful when it comes to a rpg feel. Please do read the page, i may have described this horribly. This is also a extension of the spout mod. Death and Rebirth

    BuyCraft: This is for the idea of a system of money exchange. So that if you buy something from the website, this will automatically handle the transaction and hand the buyer what he needs without you having to do anything.BuyCraft

    SpoutTrade: This adds in a visual UI for trading. So instead of dropping items onto the floor to trade, you now get a trade window. SpoutTrade

    Redstone Development Center (RDC):
    [spoiler]
    This will be a place were the redstone will be invented on the server. Instead of just saying redstones on the server, this will make a role playing feel so that the redstone technology has to be invented first before its use. This is not my most favorite idea because it will be hard to manage what people can and cant build with redstone.

    posted a message on CreeperHost | HALLOWEEN SALE! 66% OFF VDS, 25% OFF DEDIS! | sFTP & Root Access | Multiple Games | 24/7 Support | EU US AU & ASIA
    I must say, this is by far the best server hoster I've seen in a long long time. When it comes down to the facts this is what they have over everyone else.
    Facts:
    - the cheapest prices for the best quality.
    - no scams
    - 99.99999% up time
    - creeper guard (which no other hoster has)
    - and the best customer support you'll ever find.

    These people spend their time giving people what they want. Unlike more popular hosters who simply do what they can to make more money. Which entitles them scamming the customer. But unlike them, creeper host actually works to benefit the customer and give them what they ask for. Which is by far a very rare trait. So if you need a server that can run mods, plugins, or anything your mind can think of, then buy a server from creeper host. You wont regret it.

    By: Michael Gadrim


    ΦApplications:

    mgadrim96's applications:

    Builder/ Terra Former Application

    Hello my name is mgadrim96 bellow this statement will be my formal application.

    IGN: mgadrim96
    Name: Michael Gadrim
    Age: 15
    Gender: male
    Time Zone: Eastern Standard Time ( I live in Florida )
    How long have i player Minecraft?: Since the second patch of beta.
    How many servers have you been on in the past?: At least 10, all of which benefited from my creations.
    What experience do you have with server?: I have owned 3 servers, all of which i shut down due to i couldn't do what i loved to do, and that is building. I had to spend all my time fixing plugins and solving social issues.
    Do you work best in groups or by yourself?: I work great in groups as long as the people i work with understand basic building principles.
    Notes:
    - I do have Skype, Ventrilio, Teamspeak, Raidcall, and i do speak quite often in regular chat. If need be i can get any other program.
    - I'm very good at building in a RPG them but i can build just as good in a creative theme.
    - I know very basic redstone.
    What role would i like: Builder or Terraformer
    Why: Because unlike most i study to build good, and above all things i believe in detail before size.
    I would like to terraform though because i love to build my own enviroments, but what ever you need me to build i can do.
    More Notes: If youd like to test my buildings skill then simply assign me a small plot of your choice and ill building you anything you want inside of that space. (building wise) By the way im decent at redstone but im no master at it.
    Pictures:


    -This is the entrance to a city i designed. Never got to finishing it because the admins of the server said that they were leaving. Note that all this was built by me.


    -This is the backside of the entrance. The garden you see was hand designed by me, and the trees are of my original design (from what i know of).


    - This is a train station. The glass shots that are held in place by the wood brackets are shots that 1 person can fit into and travel downwards at a fast speed. The flag in the background is my cities flag. This project was also not finished seeing as the admin left and shut off the server with their departure.



    - This picture is of a airship i built using the "Better than Wolves" mod. I know that it looks very small and not so good, but i just finished it today so it still has alot of work left.
    -This is a small project i did when i was bored. I turned a whole lake to ice and made a snow temple on it. ( i did this when i was bored so yes it may be simple)


    and
    But sadly the second picture is a bad picture of the sewer i built.


    This is a picture of a old Fort that i built. It was based off a winter barbarian theme.


    Picture of the entrance to a dungeon i made. Sadly i couldn't find the pictures of the dungeon.


    This is the inside of a temple i built.

    Things that i think you should know about me:

    What i am looking for:
    - Some sort of server that is striving to make its server better.
    - A active community, if there is not one present then........ "A admin that is avidly recruiting new players to the server."
    - Some sort of user group system. ( i dont like greifing)

    What i wish to accomplish on the server:
    - Obtain a high building rank among the user groups.
    - Become a avid moderator on the server.
    - Teach and help new builders master their building style.
    - Last but not least, benefit the server with my creations.

    My building style goes like this:
    First build a starting point
    - then construct a basis for main point of intresest (what i want people to see first when they see what ive built).
    - After that i begin to expand, i branch off the original design.


    Rules to my building sytle:
    One- Never use obasidian, tnt, diamond blocks, iron blocks, or gold blocks.
    Two- Always focus on detail, never focus on the size of the project.
    Three- At least try to implement one if not two moving elements. (water, pistons, or lava.)
    Four- Never ever build a flat walled surface. As in building a house with no details on the sides.

    Plugins i know how to use:
    -Permissions
    -LWC
    -Citizens (to a extent)
    -World edit
    -Voxel Sniper
    I know quite a few more but im not sure if they've gone into inactivity.

    Skills i bring to the table:
    - Skin edit. I can make the server some skins if need be.
    - Server Administration skills.
    - Contacts that are very good at redstone.
    - Fraps, so yes i can record but i do not edit, someone else would have to do that.
    - Forum post coding skills. (as in this post Im making now, i could code to look very nice and have all kinds of cool features. So if you wish i can code your forum post.
