  1. So, I was PermBanned for Griefing (Not knowing it was wrong at the time) the first time I had ever done it. Personally I think it should be a 1 day Ban or a week, and any further griefing should be punished by PermBanned. This Harsh punishment may and has caused new members to leave and find other servers.

    Anyway, post your opinion below.
  2. Check your Convo. I've replied to it and yes Griefing/Stealing is against the rules and We have no-tolerance on this Server because its a Non-griefing Server.
    NINJATTILA and Torian42 like this.
  3. Already checked Convo, I still think there should only be a One day-Week ban for first time offenders.
  4. Do you need to be told that stealing and griefing isn't allowed?

  5. Ima be forward seeing as how Dwight as already resolved this issue but for future reference when you enter the wild, it gives a notice that both griefing and stealing will result in a perma-ban.
  6. This is why we have Tutorial for new players.
  7. I've already went over this with Dwight. I was a New Member (Too EMC and Minecraft) and did not know Griefing and Stealing was against the rules, I just thought it was a part of Survival.
  8. The tutorial AND Messages entering the Wild/Nether both say its not allowed...

    We've put the warning everywhere.
  9. What if he skipped tutorial..

    EDIT: Not trying to support the person who griefed. I am just saying.
  10. When they leave the tutorial do we need a huge pixel art thing saying "DO NOT GRIEF [username]
  11. Not able to anymore. Aikar took that out because we were like "That defeats the purpose of having a tutorial"

    Edit: I keep trying to reply to Nole, his post borks the posts.
  12. Still, there are lots of warnings everywhere, he may have skipped the tutorial but that doesn't mean that he should be treated any different because he 'didn't know'. Being ignorant is not an excuse for breaking rules. :)

  13. Tutorial is now compulsory again. It also gives the warning messages when you do /wild or /waste, so he must have seen the warnings.

    There should be first time offence permabans but only in some cases, like this. I know this is taking it a bit extreme, but in real life, you should know not to kill someone, and if you do, most are sentenced to life in jail. There is no "jail for 5 months", I know that is an extreme case, but permabans are there for a reason, and if that reason is to protect EMC, I am for it.
  14. I play on a lot of other games/sites that don't permban on the first offence. The One Day/Week Ban teachers them a lesson and keeps them coming back to the game.
  15. Like I said, I am not supporting the player who griefed. :rolleyes: Even if he skipped the tutorial I guess, he should have knew what the EMC banner was saying with "No Griefing". And in the tutorial it says no griefing. I forgot that aikar made it so you CAN'T skip tutorial, so I am happy about that.
  16. Not sure what happened but Nole's post seem to have broke things. :p
  17. fixed ;P
  18. I KNOW griefing isn't allowed, you guys don't have to be responding my post with a big line of text about griefing isn't allowed. I wasnt the person who got banned.
  19. nole, when you comment [[usernam], it breaks everything.
