first off a must say that you are the first person that i have ever seen on the forum that is 10 days or older than me besides justinguy. now what i absoulutely HATE is when people use mods. a few weeks ago when smp8 just opened to the public, i saw a 1 day old noob using flymod on my arches! (i have half-circles on my lot, i did indeed break minecraft.) there is only 1 way up, and that is through parkour. its not very hard, but only 1 person can do it at a time. also at the time there was only 1 way to get up. next thing i know he was infront of me. awestruck i fell off and asked how he got up there. he pmed me and said flymod lol. i did think of it at the time as he had complained of being laggy, i just assumed that he meant mod as in glitch and "flew" up there with block lag. then it sunk in 5 minutes later, but he had already left, and his name had evaded me. no mods where on, so there was no way for any authority to hear his little crime. i have yet to see him again. i did the /p command on his name before he was presumabley banned (i do this a lot just to learn a bit about people) and he had joined that very day. another tale from smp8 is when 2 friends (not sure if IRL or just in game, they seemed pretty close) had jsut joinec. they where literally screaming at the top of their lungs to go to their shop or else they would be banned. then they proceeded to stop using caps as others complained. they started following me asking me to buy stuff. i tried working on my arches (those darn arches broke the physics of minecraft!) but everytime i would get near a ledge they would ask me a random question (how long have you been on EMC? or may i borrow a few rups?) they would push me off as i was typing my reply. eventually i did the /res pset noob-derp move false. i watched and watched as they tried going onto my lot and failing. it was a bit humerous to see them falling from the sky limit as they where kicked from my lot. then they bombarded me with questions. i did the /ignore noob-derp (that actually is not the player's name) and it stopped. then they went to normal chat i think as others where telling them to shut up. they still come to my lot every now and then. and finally is when i saw a player, spamming me ( who thought i was the admin as well lol) why they couldnt use their x-ray texture pack. "its harmless its just for chests diamond and coal lol" they didnt even grasp the basics of griefing and fair play. then they proceeded to use another x-ray that their friend made (as he said) to locate and find ALL of my hidden chests in my lot. this was before the /report player days so i had to ignore it. why do people cheat? its so annoying! why do people stalk? its so annoying! i lied. now finally i must say that before i joined (i was always a supporter) i read every part of the guide before joining. now maybe there was no tutorial at the time, but i spawned on the roof of the wild spawn. i went to town and tried getting a lot (it was only smp1 at the time). they where all taken, so me, having never used chat yet, excluded myself to the utopia wild, where i had a magnificent man-made island for me. i miss you 1.8.1. thosae where the good days for minecraft i think.
