    Dear everyone on ds. The time has come for me to say goodbye to you all. I have loved meeting you and spending time with you but I no longer enjoy being on the server. I've put a lot of hard work into the server but I don't get the appreciation I deserve for it and for some reason the staff team has turned into something I can no longe accept. In my opinion it's not fair when you don't wanna be honest to people about their opportunities on the server. Why not be honest and let wicked know he will not get a chance at becoming staff and why not let snor know you all hate him and don't want him on the team either so they can get on with life? and why not be honest with me and just say Bolp we know you'd like to be admin but it's never gonna happen! I feel its time for me to find something else to do than be on ds. Every time I get on the server I get frustrated and I leave with a sad feeling inside that the server has become this sad thing where no one is honest and you don't have to follow the rules if you're just friends with the right staff. It has been nice knowing you all and I will never forget the friends I've made here. I wish you all well in the future and I hope you grow up to be nice and honest people. I have given my money and town to possessed and I've removed my shop at the mall. I've also made everything ready for the next drop party so you just have to push the button. I will keep streaming every now and then but my streams will be me drawing and maybe talking about stuff.. my twitch is still https://www.twitch.tv/jackeebolp and I hope to see some of you there every now and then Have a nice day and may you enjoy every minute of your life Regards Bolp

    I know I don't make as many posts here on the forums as I used to, as I usually only try to comment when I have something constructive or important to add to the conversation. I believe that this is one of those times. This is the first time all day that I've had time to get on a computer to read anything. Over this past month, I have been quite busy in my life, despite not currently being employed I have finally had time to experience life in a whole different way than I had when I was working. I've been outside a lot more and haven't really thought much about needing to go on my computer to play games. In addition, I have been working for relatives to help out with whatever they need. I've been helping my Father work on my Uncle's apartments and this past week I've been completely repainting my grandmother's house which has been keeping me busy most of the afternoon. I still keep my phone on me in the case of emergencies or if one of the staff members needs to contact me. I apologize if you have been meaning to speak to me about this, however, this seems to have been a shock to most of us. I completely agree with Camo's points, to start off about Snor, as far as I know, no one mentioned that they hate him. There are several staff members who have their own reasons for disliking him. For me personally, I tried to do everything I could to give Snor another opportunity to come back. Several staff members decided that it was time to remove some of the more "Inactive" staff members to try and bring in some new talent that would be more active. After several weeks of this being brought to me, I decided to put this plan into action, however, instead of simply demoting them, I decided to give them the opportunity to return to their full staff ranks when they became more active on the server. DK and Eddy were the two we noticed a significant improvement with activeness on the server, however from what I and the rest of the staff team observed, Snor simply wasn't putting in the effort to prove to us, that he was serious about becoming a moderator of Diamond Shaft again. The opportunity is still there for you Snor as Camo mentioned, It just depends on where your priorities stand, do you wish to play Arma 40 hours a week and Minecraft 0.3 hours a week? As we can see from your Steam profile finding time to play shouldn't be the issue, it just comes down to time management. Wicked, I know we don't really speak much, you may think I dislike you for that, however most of the time I ignore PMs or messages to me unless it's something important. I apologize for not communicating with you more. To be honest, when you were staff that would have been back whenever I was working and didn't have time to really do much for the server, as a result I don't feel we ever really interacted. I didn't really have any issues with you as I didn't interact with you that much, however, if I recall correctly there were several other staff members who had issues with you. We try to work together as a team, when there is one broken link in the chain, it splits our team apart which isn’t what we want. I trust Camo’s judgment and I believe him when he says that you have changed, we do give people second chances, hopefully, we may see you back again in our staff team. Now, bolp, about the Admin situation. As this was mentioned by several other staff members, we haven’t really had the need for another Admin especially since Camo was promoted to an Admin, being promoted to admin is something that can take time. Not everyone is promoted from Guardian > Admin in a matter of months like was the case with Phantom. In some cases, it can take years. I apologize if you were misled, or told you would never become an Admin. I assure you, that isn’t the case, you would have been one of the few people we would likely have even considered to become the next Admin. It’s very sad to see you go for these reasons Bolp, If it was for personal reasons I would understand more, if you were having issues and came to us about them, we would have liked to try and work with you to get them resolved. I wish you the best of luck with your future endeavors. You will always be welcome back to our community! Regards, King

    So me moving your farm, built against the rules in Sunset Isles, without asking = EVERY staff member is "strict" and "mean". If anything, only I should be constituted as the "meanest" staff member. You clearly have not had the time to personally get to know each and every staff member, because some of them are the nicest people I've known. You should know that, staff are only mean when players choose that it is best to just ignore us, so we have to start hauling in the bitchiness. Another example of us being assholes is if you complain to us when you don't obtain GIT, on multiple occasions. We aren't very strict, if anything we just enforce the rules like normal and do our jobs. In fact we once demoted a GIT because they were acting way too strict. I never apologized for moving your farm; and I won't. You told me you'd let "bygones be bygones" when I honestly didn't care for the matter, so we moved on. I don't care if you leave or not, I could probably predict you'd come back anyways, so do what you want. I also like to believe this server has changed for the better, and with something special coming up I believe we'll get more members. If not, then I'm fine staying at a cool 20 player average. We worked hard for this reset and for wanted ideas to be implemented. Also, it's just a Minecraft server, no need to be so dramatic.

    I only have this to say.. I'm always sad to see ppl go but if the biggest problem is that staff is too strict you micht wanna take a look at yourself. The real problem might be that you can't follow rules. I don't mean to be rude or anything but the people that often say that staff is strict is also the people that gets banned or kicked a lot for not following the rules. If you're not able to follow the simple rules of a minecraft server how are you ever gonna be able to follow the rules in society? I only wish you the best of luck in the future and you can be sure we are some people that have nothing against you and I am very sure you are one of the people I will miss. I hope to see you online before you go..

    Hello fellow Diamond Shafters! I'm pleased to announce some of the new upcoming changes with our Administration team! DK_Knight has now been promoted to Sr. Administrator, he will have access to more features on the forums and be able to assist with more forum specific issues that he was unable to do previously. Phantomheim has also been promoted to our new Sr. Administrator retirement program, he will spend most of his time in a relaxing retirement home where he will have the freedom to relax and play many different games, such as bingo! We are also welcoming a new Admin to the team! He is one of the few administrators who have been an admin before me! The almighty camocowboy!!! I would just like to congratulate all of you on your success and dedication to the server, your hard work has not gone un-noticed! Regards, King.

    I feel like some of the stuff said in this post would've been left better unsaid, or thought out more as if just makes the staff team look like a group of liars. You've been with us for a while, and while I cared for you a lot and tried to help you when I could, this was kind of a hurtful read for me. I would've also liked to have known that you planned to go and that you had problems so that I, and possibly the other staff could have talked to you about it, instead of it being hidden and Snor being cryptic about it to me. On the topic of @MrSnorman, I might as well say now that we do not "hate" him, but it seems the staff team have come to an agreement that he's not yet ready to come back to the staff team. For whatever reason, it was made "my choice" to promote Snor or not, and he would a couple of times try to butter me up or convince me to bring him back, and by asking, isn't the right way to do so. So I decided to consult the staff. I did plan to tell him soon, but I wanted every single staff member opinion, first. It might be obvious that some staff are upset with him, but on the topic of "hatred", I wouldn't go that far. As with @WickedRainGaming, we gave him an Interview, it might've been said before that he shouldn't get another chance, but I have recently seen a change with him that might've been for the better, so I gave him a chance. However, he didn't get as many votes as the other GITS, so he didn't make it. I apologize to Wicked that the staff thought ill of him at one point, but he's still human and has a good heart. All that aside, I don't know why the Admin topic is being brought up again. I heard about you being upset with Nathaniel for not appreciating your work, but I don't think it has to specifically be said. I'm sure Nathaniel appreciates the work of all staff, but doesn't just go to everyone and pat them on the back. I know you've been Mod for a while, but it's been said that we don't need another Admin right now, and we may not need another for quite a while. I've also heard many complaints about "drama" within and outside of the staff team. Honestly I don't see much drama within the staff team, and if there is it can easily be prevented. However, I do know of some outside drama. We're staff members, and I've realized recently that drama is much better off prevented, however there are people who do not yet realize this, and continue to make efforts to cause issues instead of resolving problems and moving on. I've seen it time and time again, and personally all I've ever done is help one side and push it forward, but it was time for that to change, I can't do that anymore. Bolp, I'm truly sorry to see you go, but it makes me sad that you think this way of us. If you ever need help or someone to talk too, I, and other staff are always on Discord. EDIT: I forgot to mention, maybe some things the staff do can be changed if we feel the need to do so, however any decision we make is made as a group. As shown above, a decision shouldn't be just put one person, but for a vote with the staff. At least, that's how I always preferred to do things. Most of the staff we have are my close friends, or they are very nice people to know, so that can sometimes throw off judgement in favor for them, and though sometimes it can be justified, some situations could be thought through better. I don't take Minecraft seriously anymore, I haven't for a few years. However, this community that I've watched grow since Tremble, I take very seriously. If the staff team are becoming what you say we are, then I don't want that to reflect off our community.

    Hello everyone. As the majority of us know, we just had interviews today, the staff team had picked the new GIT's among the applicants. In behalf of the staff team, The new GIT's are: Kat_1910 WickedRainGaming DevinThrashes Demonic_YT Congratulations to those of you who have made it! We are so excited to have you in the staff team! For the new GIT's, you will notice a GIT section in the forums. That is where most of the commands are. You will have to learn them through out the program. If you have any questions, you could ask us and we will gladly answer. Also remember to make a Ban Evidences page for all the bans you make through out the program, which will last for 1-2 weeks. It is on the "Banned Players" section. More information are on the forums, GIT section. For those who didn't make it, Don't worry! You can always reapply and there is always another chance. Some interesting answers that occured during the interviews: "Whats your greatest strenghts?" - "Gaming" "Im sorry, I sound young because Im using a weird microphone"

    Bolp thank you for everything you have done for this community, you have to be one of the most hard working, dedicated and caring staff we have had. During times of difficulty for anyone you are always the one there to comfort them and look out for them and give advice. I feel like we've become friends since back when you were a GIT and we've talked about loads, I hope this doesn't change as I will still be in touch! As for your message I completely understand your frustration, and feel sorry that the only thing you thought you could do at this point was to resign. I feel like youve been let down by everyone in that sense as yes you have been taken for granted and no it isn't fair. For when I had my input I'll apologise on my behalf now.. I hope you may come back at some point, maybe to talk to some people on the server as I'm sure many will agree that you are all a great person and it will be a shame to not have you around. Hope to speak soon Snor

    Username: PossessedHail Age: 15 NickName: Usually Po but someone took that so now its Pos Skype: PossessedHail Discord: PossessedHail Teamspeak: Too dead m8 Email: [email protected] Hello its Po as you probably already know, i would like to reapply for the GIT program. As most of you should know i was previously G.I.T but i was demoted before i made it to Guardian, because of this i have learnt new things and noted things i should work on (The reasons i got demoted) I asked staff members such as Lucy Bolp Snor and Neil what i would need to work on if i ever wanted to reapply. The main points they suggested were A don't spend as much time on minechat B don't ban rocky for 10 days C don't just keep posting in ban evidence section, edit it. Now i think i have this in the bag because minechat wont work, rocky is demoted and ban evidence isn't used anymore so i cant fail Of course i have GIT experience but i also have experience on the Event team which means i understand many commands i didn't before i joined (though a few parts of the /lb stuff may have slipped my mind so i could do with a brush up) Since i last applied i believe i have matured slightly (not much) which means i wont extremely unprofessional but i will still have fun. The main reasons i have reapplied is because of the new reset, before it i went sort of inactive though i hopped now and again i was quite bored with the game but now the reset has his i am spending most of my days on here, to quote my mother "make some real friends Harold" nuff said really. So like before when i applied i am really looking for a change of pace, i've been doing the same thing since the 1.7 map and of course i would never quit DS i have had a "short attention span" from time to time and really i'd like to start something new on here. I joined the forums when Totie, Choppy, Hayley, Rocky and papa were G.I.Ts (June 15, 2015) and i have been playing before that for quite some time (1.7 as i said before) which is about 4 years i think? who knows well i think I've made my point on that. For me, my main points of concerns are that i do have a history and present of mental illness (nothing serious) its mainly anxiety and stress which means i might not cope well in some situations, such as if I've had a stressful day i might get a bit angry but since i had a few talks with Snor i have learnt stuff to do in those situations, eg: leave for 5 minutes. (Snor is my Therapist) And i have a weird sense of humour which is another thing to do with stress, its sort of a coping mechanism. I have tried to be as honest as possible while making this application and i don't think i made it too long. Anyway thank you for reading my application i hope to have another shot at Guardian or GIT at least. OH one last point i am going on holiday for about 10 days in the summer holiday so i hope that does not cause troubles Yours sincerely Po

    Lol, this is pathetic. You sir are what's called a shit stirrer and trust me, I've been there done that and seen it all before. Also you've been playing for 2 years? Bullcrap as much as I'm not that active at the moment I was very active last year and never saw you once. Maybe when you stop lying someone will unban you. If it was up to me I would IP ban you too. Class dismissed.

    MC User: Lunning155 Discord/TS3: Lunning155 Age: 20 Possible Recomendations: Most of the staff hopefully. I've worked with all of you besides the newest Guardians. Hello, I'm Lunning and I have recently came back to the server after my life has finally slowed down. I was a Guardian and went through the G.I.T. program around a year ago. Had to stop for college and focus on school. I am hoping to be able and help this great server once again and be a guardian eventually. I know I personally loved being able to help people on a higher level than just a member and I firmly believe people enjoyed how constant I was and willing to help with even the smallest thing. I'm a people person and will always be in either chat or discord, If not message me and I will be there.I have been apart of this community for over three years now and miss it greatly. Now I want to give back once again. Thank you for time. P.S. Snor: I hope you saved Paublo the Potato for me this whole time.

    @TEAtime2012, we'll be giving you a full day to decide, as this seems like a rushed decision. Please talk to bolp whenever you get the chance, and maybe she can help you. If you choose otherwise, I'm sorry to see you go. It's been nice knowing you for the few years on here, and I'm very happy you got to build for the server and helped us out on multiple occasions. I guess I'll manage Woodpine while you're gone, considering.

    Hello, everyone. I guess it's that time again that we do Interviews. It was supposed to be longer however we've decided to start up again as some staff have went inactive, old/respected members have returned, and the servers activeness has spiked (as seen on Saturday/Sunday). I decided that this time, they will be hosted Sunday, July 23rd. This should give enough time for people to prepare, become a bit more active, and create/submit their applications before then. There will, once again, be a Waiting Room on the Discord that I will create, and we will randomly move people into the Interview Room when ready. The time is the same as before for me, 2 PM EST. Time conversions will be posted below. (If wrong, please let me know.) Keep in mind, these Interviews will more than likely be recorded by staff, and our father, @Justin. We've also gotten the "my mic makes me sound younger" excuse, however we've never heard of a mic actually doing that unless a voice changer is being used. If you sound young, you may be considered to be young. The previous GIT program changes will be carried over. We will now pick 4 GIT's this round, and they will get a week to learn everything about being a Guardian. A second week will be given if needed, or if a player is inactive (please plan ahead.) Applications are known to be optional, however they do help. If you present us an application, make sure it follows the guidelines, and you have not lied on it. Now sadly, there are certain people who will not be Interviewed this round. If you do not get Interviewed, it may be for these reasons; You have failed GIT multiple times (possible exceptions.) You have disrespected staff or members multiple times. You have not been active for long enough. You are too young / not of age. You are on an Interview blacklist. You simply didn't show up to Interviews. If you don't show, there will be no "after interviews." No excuses. It is required to have a microphone. There cannot be any exceptions, three reasons being; We must know that the player is 'real'. Obtain a sense of personality from the player. See that they have enough confidence to be able to talk and deal with people or chat in meetings. Timezone Information posted here. I hope to see you there! California (U.S.A - Western): 11 am Chicago (U.S.A - central): 1 pm New Jersey (U.S.A - Eastern): 2 pm Charlotte Town (Canada - Prince Edward Island): 3 pm London (UK - England): 6 pm Denmark (European): 8 pm Hong Kong (China): 2 am Please review this post before applying; Discord information;

    Why are you even appealing if this was the reason? This also confirms it... He was banned for Fly PvP, what the fuck are you talking about? I banned you, not Snor. http://imgur.com/qAWZsNH Doesn't really matter. PvP is allowed in the wild and in arenas. Him Fly PvPing is abuse of perks and is unfair to any members who don't have it and/or obey the rules. I was monitoring chat at the time. She never broke any rules or abused her powers. In summary, you are an extremely suspicious character. You keep lying in your appeals, you have admitted to ban evading which is the rule I take most seriously, yet think you will be unbanned. You keep trying to convince everyone that Kat is an abusive Guardian, when she clearly is not. I told you to not bother appealing, yet here you are making an appeal that displays utter disrespect for this guardian, and also taking a pathetic attempt at trying to fool me, or anyone who views it. You will not be unbanned. Any more appeals posted by you, or other unruly posts, and you will be restricted from posting indefinitely. Some extra notes: lets take a look at your profile.

    @TEAtime2012 Managing towns isn't easy, and very under appreciated. Trust me, I know. While I never knew you that much well, when I left the server I thought to myself, "At least Tea will still be there to spur some life into this server." So thank you. I hope that one day, I will wake up tired and exhausted in the early morning, open my phone, squint my eyes and see a small, buzzing notification from New York Times that says, "New Manhattan mall to join international conglomerate franchise, TeaTowns..." Wouldn't that be something?

    The first event of the summer and 1.12 for that matter is being hosted on Thursday the 29th of June at 8 PM UK Time, if you don't know when that is for your time zone then bloody google it. For the event you must pick one of 5 Kits: Archer, Knight, Barbarian, Camo and Burd, you may have to parkour for the Burd Kit. Once you pick the kit you will be warped to the arena but you MUST NOT fight once you get into the arena, if you do so you will be disqualified. This gives players time to get to grips with the arena, the start of the game will be announced from then you can fight. P.S the water will kill you.

    Bonjour mes amis! It's your favorite terrorist, Totie. It's been somewhere around 7-8 months since I announced my departure of the server, which is much longer than what I thought, so I thought it'd be a good idea to give a small update on how I am, since a few have been asking. Generally, everything's good and dandy. I have good grades, I'm enjoying summer, I'm returning to the gym today to work on my left broken arm which I got surgery on... Oh yeah that. That's probably a big thing that happened. Lemme get into story mode. *Ahem* It was a calm, February the 7th. (actually not really, it was a birthday gathering). We were throwing a surprise birthday party for our friend, Walid. At one point, still early into the night at around 10PM, some boys started wrestling. I got up to pee at some point, when a boy invited me to wrestle with them, promising nothing bad would happen. (fucking liar) I wrestled this guy with my same name, and two minutes into it, it was looking like a stalemate. But then I throw him to the ground and try to coerce him under my control. He breaks free, my arms still tightly gripping his thin, stick-like arms. He stands, and with the help of his back, flips me over onto the ground. I fall on my left arm. He loses his balance, and topples right over me. CRRAAKCKS And yeah. The whole room could hear the sound of my forearm breaking loud and clear. 11 teenage boys just freeze and look at me. I very slowly sit up, and raise my arms. To my surprise, it looks more like a step of stairs. In the middle of my left forearm, it just ascends upwards and continues that way. Apparently, I never made a noise. Just kept staring at my arm, until one guy broke the silence by grabbing me and yelling "Sayf you have a broken arm come on!" at which point 11 teenage boys and I run up the stairs to get Walid's parents (we were in his basement). Long story short, I arrived in the hospital shirtless, with a hello kitty blanket on my shoulders, wearing Walid's dad's flip flops, a giant wooden spoon tied to my left arm, and my right hand making finger guns at the very confused guards. (I fought shirtless and without shoes so...) I had broken both bones in my forearm, and it was a severe cut. So severe, I needed surgery by February the 9th. The surgery took over 4 hours, in which they put 2 Titanium Plates into my left arm, 5 screws each. (I will attach an X-ray and pictures of the surgery wounds which will stay for many, many years.) Does this mean I learned my lesson and will be a good boy? no Moving on, I also got a Husky I named Scooby. Turns out, dog training is a fucking hellhole of an activity. And yeah. I'll be a Junior next year. I'm getting an internship this summer too. Pretty much it If you want to regularly keep in touch, add me on Instagram (DM me for username), or follow my poetry blog: https://sayfabdeen.wordpress.com

    Can you please not create pointless topics like this before someone warns you for shit posting. There is no reason for this kind of topic.. What exactly are you trying to accomplish? I can't think of a single person who thinks to themselves, hmm, I'm getting 2 FPS, this is amazing! Rather than creating a post trying to get people to comfort you on your terrible lag experience, you should throw your toaster into the trash can and get an actual PC that doesn't lag.

    Hello, everyone. On June 8th, we plan to reset the map in time for the 1.12 release if the update is not delayed once again. We originally planned on having it be a sort of surprise, but I figured I'd make a post notifying everyone, considering the developers delayed 1.12. The update does not have any blocks that would be generated into the world as far as I know (possibly Concrete Powder, but that can be crafted), so we do not consider it a "major update", however we decided we would reset either way, as it's no secret that this server has seen better days community-wise. It's obvious that a reset in itself would not work, so we have quite a number of ideas set and implemented for the reset. I believe many members will be happy with these changes and additions, and some things from past server versions are returning. I have also created a post containing all of the changes made for the reset, and the list is decently sized. If you are not yet clear on what the update itself adds, it does not add much. The main things added are the Parrots, found in Jungles and can be tamed with seeds. Once tamed, you can tell them to sit in one area, or have them fly to follow you. You can also walk into them while they are following you, and they will sit on your shoulder until you hover (sometimes they will fly onto you themselves.) Hopefully, EchoPet will add Parrots so they can sit on shoulders while in flight. Illusioner was also added. They've removed Achievements in place of Advancements. They've also added the very useful Recipe Book, which allows players to quickly craft items that they've learned to craft through Advancements. They have also added Saved Toolbars in Creative; For builders, they've added Glazed Terracotta, which have multiple design/placement choices, colored beds, updated wool colors and sheep, and Concrete in all colors, created when Concrete Powder comes in contact with water. They have also added new sound effects for mobs, and Noteblocks; And a few other additions, which can be viewed here. Anyways, if you are against the reset, please do not annoyingly complain to our staff members, they will not be in the mood to hear it. Any "constructive criticism" can be sent to me (KingVampy) on Discord PM. I will not discuss the changes planned until after reset, however I will say that the map we created is finished, and most ideas are ready to be implemented. Extra Images: Note; Only Survival is being reset, not Survival+.

    Hello everyone, I've decided that I will be holding staff interviews on Sunday, March 12th at 2:00 PM EST on Discord. I am announcing this today so people will have time to create their applications and possibly tell their friends about it if they are also wondering about being a staff member. We've recently had three new additions to the staff team, Tori, Reds, and Tea, but we've also recently had four of our staff members leave the server due to boredom. Personally, I don't blame them. Recently, I've been trying to get things going and have written down 'plans' to get more members on the server, and I believe interviews to fill in those staff positions should be one of the first steps. I already know quite a bit of people who wanted to be staff or want interviews, so I'm willing to go through with it. Members who wish to be interviewed will wait in a "Waiting Room" voice channel I will create in the Diamond Shaft Discord, so I can wait for it to get a bit filled and get the questions ready and such, and I'll drag users in after I'm done with others. Once you're done being interviewed, do not go back into the Waiting Room. Other staff members may help me interview users if they wish, but I set the time to 2:00 PM EST as that is best for me personally. The GIT program will be a bit different this time around. I got Nathaniel's (King's) opinion about it, and I suggested not to do it this time, though he said we could maybe do just a week or two of it this time. I decided we'd just do a week of GIT's, where they have everything a GIT week 3 would have, so essentially most of what Guardians have, just a bit of LogBlock limitations as to not roll everything back on accident. As a bonus, I (and hopefully some other staff) will be working on a guide to show what commands a Guardian has and what they do for the forums, so our GIT's can view it at any time. We will later add information on Moderators, if needed. I would also prefer they ask a Moderator or Administrator for help on Discord or Skype. I suggest Discord, as it's much more used by staff than Skype. I'm aiming for four GIT's to get four Guardians, so if you're going to try and become a GIT, I please ask you take it seriously and learn everything you need too. If you by chance end up being busier than planned, or don't learn enough in that week, we'll allow a second week to learn whatever you need too. EDIT: It is required to have a microphone. There cannot be any exceptions, three reasons being; We must know that the player is 'real'. Obtain a sense of personality from the player. See that they have enough confidence to be able to talk and deal with people or chat in meetings. Timezone Information posted below. I hope to see you there!

    IGN: Kat_1910 Age: 15 Discord: Kat_1910 Hello, I’m Katrina, also known as Kat to many. I have been on DS for awhile now, since 1.8 I believe, and I am now just coming back. I have also enjoyed my time on the server. I have many friends on Diamond Shaft, and usually get along with everyone. I am usually on the server on weekdays from the moment I get home which is usually around 3PM EST until 10PM EST. On weekends I'm online basically all day long unless something comes up. I want to become part of the Staff Team because I have always had the interest to do so, and I want to be able to help staff out when they are busy with helping other people and can't get to another person at that time and to keep the community a happy place. I want to help keep griefing under control, and I know some major spots that usually get griefed. (My base is one of them). Some personal about me is that I like to play video games quite a bit, I enjoy singing on my free time, and that's just about it since I'm a bit shy. I hope you consider me for the GIT position. Thank you, and have a good day! -Katrina

    Alright, so I want to apply for the BT. My ig is TEAtime2012. I've built a few things for the server and myself. Such as the drop party mansion and arena 2. I've always been a town whore but im kinda bored of it, so I would like to focus on doing server builds. From owning several towns and being ex-staff I think I can be trusted not to tamper with other member's builds or break the trust of the people around me. I love building it's my favorite part of the game, but even more, I love building for other people, that's why I'm applying for this and not staff. I want to build. I love building for the server, knowing that my art will be used and looked at by other people. I know I've upset many people and I'm sorry but I would love to join the team and not get bored. I'm very committed to server builds, camo and Victor know I will spend up to 13 hours straight building if I need to or if I'm on a roll(camos mansion and sunrise hotel). I know how to copy/paste and set in W/E but I'm not very familiar with world guard but I'm willing to learn. I'm also pretty good with redstone i know how to make sound effects into builds and cool strobe effects that can be turned off. I also did the Redstone for the DP mansion so if needed I can implement that. Thank you and I hope I will be accepted. My screenshots are all from the current map. 12Well my name is u

    (Server is in "beta." I will require players for testing, and some more things to be edited/configured.) Hello, everyone. For a few weeks me, @aye_its_eddy_, @Lucy, and some others have been working on a new /server for DiamondShaft. It is nothing too big, however I would hope that some users will find some enjoyment out of it. Survival+ contains more plugins than the normal Survival server, as I will list below. We also use a custom created world for a nicer looking terrain for any of the building types on the server, and for those who just enjoy a cool looking terrain. The world, Le Monde, was created by the user Moonti on Planet Minecraft (link below.) Note that if you sail out to the sea, you will eventually reach an ugly generated-edge of the normal Minecraft world, however it is blocked off by WorldGuard to prevent entrance (We may permit entrance to the normal world later on.) For plugins, we have a good amount of special ones already, however I will gladly accept plugin suggestions as long as they won't require an inane amount of customization or configuration. Our current plugins to note (some not included in list): ChestShop (Already known plugin. Create shops for other players to buy from, or sell too.) CraftBook (Adds more survival mechanics to Minecraft, e.g ladders that contain gravity like sand.) CraftableHorseItems (Adds the ability to craft every horse item, including saddles and all horse armor types.) EchoPet (Already known plugin. Summon vanilla mob pets to customize and name.) ExoticGarden (Expansion of Slimefun. Adds special head-plants, foods, drinks, and other things.) HorseProtect (Already known plugin. Combine a saddle and sign in a craft tabble to create an owner saddle.) LogBlock (Already known plugin. Allows staff to log creation and destruction of blocks or items.) MarriageMaster (Adds ability to marry another player, though this time it has survival advantages.) MobHealth (Already known plugin. Adds bar of health above mobs.) MysticMobs (Allows Administrators to add completely customized mobs, we may utilize this later on.) Slimefun (Creates an all-new survival experience by adding many new items and mechanics.) TrailGUI (Already known plugin. Allows players to use certain particle trails that follow them.) mcjobs (Players can select a number of jobs to take-on to earn in-game cash.) mcMMO (Already known plugin. Adds a sort of MMO feel to Minecraft, as well as skills to level.) Vampire (Allows players to become Vampires by infecting themselves at an Altar of Darkness, or cure themselves at an Altar of Light.) And more. (For those wondering, no, we did not install Towny, and we have no plans to do so.) The rules are a bit different, as well. Some may or may not like the changes in this server, but Griefing, Stealing, and PvP are completely allowed in the Wilderness, so it is suggested to somehow hide your home/items. Towns dubbed official by Arbiters/Emissaries will be protected with WorldGuard, however. (There are no current official towns.) The other generic rules are currently placed on signs when you spawn, and will later be included in /rules. mobGriefing, fireSpreads The ranks are not much different, other than names and color. The donor ranks will obviously include most perks from the original Survival, plus permissions from new plugins. We are currently debating whether Creative should be restricted or allowed for donors. The ranks are as followed: [Common] (Member) [Citizen] (Iron) [Templar] (Gold) [Cleric] (Diamond) [Prophet] (Emerald) [Justiciar] (Guardian) [Arbiter] (Moderator) [Emissary] (Administrator) We did not include a GIT rank, as it would be pointless (training is on the original Survival.) This server was created mainly for fun purposes, but obviously we still have some rules to follow. As I have said, I will still accept plugin suggestions, or other suggestions for the server if it isn't too inane. Keep in mind, the server is in a "beta" stage. I will require players for testing and for more things to be edited and configured.

    If you're not asking to be unbanned, why make an appeal? Appeals are meant to get you unbanned, and that's not happening according to Eddy. You were in fact arguing with staff, disrespectful or not. Arguing with staff is against the rules and that should be clear, as we warned you multiple times not to argue with us.
This leaderboard is set to Halifax/GMT-03:00
