Minecraft Survival Servers
We've spoke about password security many times before on EMC. A password is only as good as you make it. Non-repeating random character strings that are 16+ long are often the most secure, but there is always a safer method. The leading method at the moment for increasing security is the two-factor authentication system.
How it works (this is in non-tech terms):
Two-factor authentication works by using your smartphone or other device as a second 'checkpoint' of sorts before you gain access to the site. So when I enter my password from my computer, I have to also type in an additional code that my phone generates (and changes every 30 seconds). This means that in order for someone to hack my account, they would need to know my password AND have access to my phone. Since many of us live with our phones within reach 24/7, that's not an easy feat for said hacker to accomplish.
What does this mean for EMC?
Player privacy is of the utmost concern for us on EMC. This two-factor authentication helps to make your forums access safer and removes the issues that we have had in the past with regards to password security. This is an optional feature, but it is one that we strongly recommend for all players to use. To activate, please see below for the embedded wiki page with instructions:
Have you ever wanted to help out the Empire, but didn't have a clue how you could? Well, keeping a server running like this takes more than just Staff. It takes YOU! Apply to be a member of one of our Community Teams and help out the Empire.
After a proper mourning period, we analyzed the role of contribution team lead and what we WANT it to have going forward, and it's simply too much for one person to handle effectively. So, let me introduce our TWO Contribution Team Leaders!
AlexC__ and FDNY21
These amazing gentlemen are already working with me to determine ways to grow the team's roll on EMC and help to get a few things rolling that have set on the wayside for too long. I can't wait to see what they have in store!
If you're interested in joining the Contribution Team, please apply. I'm sure that the new team leaders want some new blood!
We've debated quite a bit about the best method in which to help player events have high participation and encourage players to run their own events, instead of relying on Staff hosts. For a while now, we've allowed a front page promotion for events that meet certain criteria for being community oriented, well organized, etc. We've never allowed birthday parties, or drop parties to be posted due to not wanting to spam the front page with player threads and crowd out important news.
