    Hello, I'd like to apply for a position as a "Guardian In Training". I've become quite interested in Minecraft D.S. community recently. My current position requires a list of reasonable arguments which later favours my request. As suggested by admirable players, I apply for greater responsibility. [Adding personal information] People describe me as "calm", concreate in my replies, genuine and more. I'd like to think of myself as fairly balanced and vow to self criticism as others to improve for future events. As human, I share no position in politics or religion, which helps prevent an unpleasant discussions. I am a working citizen, 08:00 - 16:00 , Monday - Friday. Sending my regards: EnterPhenomena

    Now, (Note: I'm not really all that good at writing lengthy as hell suggestions like this but I want to try. I feel as if my voice needs to be heard on this subject.) Hello all, i'm TearsOfMisery, currently know as. I used to go by EternalSorrow, if some may remember me. I am a 3+ year vet on this server, and overtime, it has gotten quite... Samey, to say the least. That's why I'm here today, to suggest change. To suggest a rebirth of the entire server. Today, in this post, we'll be talking about: Ranks, Economy, Voting, PvP+Item dropping Ranks. Where do I begin? Okay. So ever since DiamondShaft was made a server, the rank system has been the exact same to my current knowledge. Member, Iron, Gold, Diamond, and Emerald, each coming with their own unique perks and rewards. Now, the server needs funding and money to help keep running, I get that and understand it. Though, I believe the ranks are a tad- um. Unfair. Think about it for a moment. For $20 you get creative mode, main highlight of the rank. For $10 you get fly, which completely eliminates the usage of horses and minecarts. Again, taking away from the entire survival experience. Now, the Emerald rank. It's not even worth the money (although I ammmm the owner of said rank.), It's really unfinished. All most have to do is buy the Diamond rank and never have to donate a single penny again. You're losing out on money on a 'giving players benefits' standpoint.That is why i'm suggesting a complete redo of the ranks. First off, NO CREATIVE MODE as a perk for players. yes, yes, I know, I can hear ya'll complaining, "But sorrow! I spent twenty dollars for my creative!" "I'll quit the server if creative goes away!" "I need it for building!" blah, blah. I get it. Creative helps with building and makes gathering resources non existent. Though, I do not believe that is fair to the 'peasants' (Members.) All the time, we have winy kiddos asking the higher ranked players with creative to build them things with it. Yes, I am aware that there is a rule where you cannot build for members, but still, the higher ranked players still get asked. (least I have a few times.) So, why not level the playing field for all folk? Plus, it would feel a lot more rewarding to build that town in survival than in creative, hm? It's something to increase playtime by forcing players to actually play the game instead of doing /c. Secondly in the ranks, the kit rewards. For the most part, i do believe that they are fine though, I beleve an added benifit the the higher ranked players is are unbreakable tools. Now, why unbreakable tools? Wouldn't that be overpowered? Well, if put into a daily kit, then yes. My suggestion to handle this is have it spawn in the payer's inventory apon purchasing a high enough rank. If they lose it, that's on them.The only alternative way to get one is to buy one, which I will get into here shortly. . Moving on to Rank perks across all the ranks. Have rank perks be mainly cosmetic. For example, give Iron players the ability to change their nickname, have a couple particles, and have the ability to change their name color to a select few colors. Gold rank would be the same, but with more particles and name color options. Keep giving unique cosmetic perks the more you pay, becasue donating should be about supporting the server out of the kindness of someone's heart, not to have a gmc. There are also /sethomes, which I will get into soon. Economy. In the 1.13 server update, we had they money system with jobs, which worked out fine. Although, there was not really anything extra to buy with money, and getting it was stupidly easy, too. That's why i am suggesting that we completely rid of the economy plugin we have and go an entirely new route for the server's currency. Diamonds. Diamonds will buy you food. Diamonds will buy your armor. Diamonds will buy your everything you need if you're too lazy to go and get it yourself. "but wouldn't that be too expensive? Diamonds for food?" You see, little one, there is a solution. The players will control the economy. Example: If someone is selling two stacks of steak for one diamond, you can beat the absolute shit out of their price and make it three stacks for a diamond. See what I'm getting at here? The people who will succeed will be the players who have the most resources. Perhaps we could give villagers a little love, too. If possible with plugins in 1.14, have the villagers sell unique items. Example: Elytra for 32 diamond blocks and 32 emerald blocks. Thus, eliminating the need to go to the end if you fear losing your gear. We can also use the villagers for players to buy mob spawners, mob eggs, and other hard to get things. Especially unbreakable items. Now, unbreakable items have to have balance to them. Now, not EVERYTHING will be purchased with diamonds. Again, they players make the economy. For certain items you could sell in turn for iron or gold. The possibilities are endless. Another thing with this economy system is that it makes money a common thing. Instead of getting payed cents at a time doing a job, a player could be using a beacon and a fortune III pick to get their funds. Voting Time and time again, I see the new members become saddened when they find out that you had to pay money for warps. I have a solution for this. Have players VOTE to get new /sethomes. It's a simple but easy way to push encouragement for voting. Lets say we have three websites for voting. The first sethome a player can get is with the first three votes they do. If players vote daily, they get more sethomes. Therefore, the willingness of wanting more homes is all up to the player, not their wallet. This could also help out the server massively. It helps with advertisement, which helps reel in more players, thus causing more votes to come in if they decide to stay. Staff & Going PG (Yes, PG. I know, it hurts.) Okay, this one is going to be uh. I dunno. As I want to get right to the point. From what I have noticed, being staff has turned into dick swinging contest more than anything else. Most of the staff were buddy buddy with the older staff to begin with. Now, don't get me wrong. We have a colorful cast of staff members, all being unique in their own ways. But honestly, how often are they even on? I get that they have school, they have lives, such and so on. But don't you think there needs to be a slight change? I also want to introduce an idea. If this suggestion of mine follows through, and I mean it's a big IF, then we might have to go PG to attract a younger audience. Now, I know 'dealing with autisim' is a meme around the server and all, but we have to lead by example. We have to show maturity. And with this, a new staff roll as a part of the GIT could be 'Chat Mod' or something. I don't know. Something to keep the profanity away from the little one's eyes. Though, I really doubt that being PG will make it past the changes. We're a community that's so used to having open speech. I'm even too open with my speech myself. Again, going PG is just an option if we want more of a younger playerbase, PvP+Item Dropping Probable one of the most discussed things by the PvPers on the server. "Can I get someone's shit if I kill them" "Will I drop my items when I die?" Well. I have two options for it, three actually. 1. Have items drop no matter what. This change will cause players to be cautious who they group and base with. Betrayal is a thing, and it can happen. This can increase the competitiveness of the server, and add more of a danger factor to having a 'bounty' set on you. Bounties? Yes, bounties. I do not know if there is a way to claim a item reward for killing a player, but if there is there'd be a greater sense of 'watching your fucking back.' 2. Have no items drop whatsoever. Old DiamondShaft style. Keep inventory will keep your precious items safe from assholes like me, who abuse the bounty compass to just hunt you down and kill your for fun. Lucky you. :< 3. Have a healthy mix between the two. Have no items drop if you're killed by a player in the wild. They will drop if you die without a player killing you. Basically the thing we had going on in 1.13. But, here's the twist, items can drop in certain PvP areas. (Like arenas, or towns if chosen to.) That way, the people who like PvE can be happy, and the people who play PvP can be happy. Overall? I'd like to think that these changes could help the server thrive again. Of course, you may lose players, but you'll GAIN players, too. The truly loyal, passionate players of the server will stay. I can tell you that much. Anyways, that is all I want to say for now. I have a suggestion for plugins, but I want to do my research before I run my mouth and make an idiot out of myself. Thanks for reading, and please, leave feedback on what you all think about my suggestions. (Note: I may go back and edit this document to make it more presentable and lengthy. This friggn thing is still a work in progress.) - TearsOfMisery

    Before you make your staff application, there are some rules we want you to follow before making it. It must be a somewhat lengthy application, at least one to two paragraphs. You must be 13 years or older, unless we make an exception. Do not spam your application or continue to ask staff about looking at it, we will eventually get to it. Do not apply for staff on another post, you must make your own topic. You can only apply for GIT. If you apply for Guardian, Moderator and/or Administrator, we will have you edit your application. You must have access to, and be active on the forums, Discord, and Minecraft Server. Your application must explain why you want to be staff and tell a little bit about yourself. If you are new or unknown to most people on the server, please wait a while and get to know people before applying. Do not copy, paste, and edit someone's application. It will be removed. NOTE: Please try to be mature in your application, in regards to both grammar and attitude. We will not be too strict on this, but it is appreciated. NOTE: Your application only makes up for a small amount of your overall mark on getting GIT. The rest lies in your interview and personality! NOTE: We might remove applications that don't follow most of these rules (for example, plagiarized applications.) Application Example: IGN: DK_Knight Age: 18 TeamSpeak: DK_Knight Hello everyone my name is DK_Knight. I currently have been on the server for over two months and have enjoyed every minute of it. I want to become Guardian for one, to be able to stop bugging staff whenever I have some grief that needs fixed and two, to help out with making sure the server runs as well as it can. I have become good friends with a lot of people on the server. I have helped staff when they need it and have not broken a rule. To talk a little about myself, I am 18 years old. I live in a small town in the state Illinois in the United States. I will soon be graduating and going to college for Information Technology. I plan on learning how to build my own computer so one day it's powerful enough to run Minecraft at full specifications. The staff have gotten to know me well enough to say I should make an application. I have TeamSpeak which is DK_Knight. I am on the Diamond Shaft server on average two or three hours a day. When the creative server got opened I was able to learn about WorldEdit one of the big plugins to know about on this server and probably in general. I currently know a lot about Minecraft ranging from past and present details. I unfortunately have not learned about logblock and the ability to roll someone or something back, but with the help of the other staff members I can probably get to know how it works within a day. I do not have Skype but I am able to get it if I need to. I can obviously get on the forums which my name is DK_Knight as well. If I left anything out please let me know and I will change it. As said above, do not ask staff about viewing your application or we will get annoyed. We will go through applications before we do interviews, and we will do these interviews on Discord. Please check back every now and again as there might be more rules added. Good luck!

    Staff Charter Staff must also promote a professional and friendly environment. These are the basic rules that govern staff members. 1. Abuse of power is absolutely prohibited. (This includes, kicks/tempbans/ban without reason. Force moving people between channels etc.) 2. Cursing to be kept to an absolute minimum. (If you are frustrated leave the server to vent.) 3. When dealing with players staff are to conduct themselves as professionally as possible. 4. Inter-staff issues are to be calmly discussed and resovled in private. If this is not possible all involved should go to a higher tiered staff member to find a solution. 5. Staff are reminded that they are to perform all duties required of them while in the game. Failure to do so WILL result in demotion. 6. Staff are also reminded to make every attempt to be as respectful as possible of both their fellow staff members and of the players they interact with. (This includes racist remarks and discrimination in general)

    Welcome to the ban appeal template! I take it you are reading this because you were banned. Well I'm not here to judge, I want to help you get unbanned and come back on our server! For starters lets let you know some rules when creating your ban appeal! - Please do not say "I don't know why I was banned." There should be a reason for you being banned, you can find it by trying to connect to the server. If it states "Griefing LB Proof" That means you were banned for griefing and we will have proof. If it actually doesn't give a reason then it can be acceptable to not know why you were banned but 90% of the time you will know why. - Do not create ban appeals for "Friends" or "Family" we require the original player who was banned to create the ban appeal. - Do not message staff members asking to be unbanned. Appeal and be patient. - If you have already been banned once there is a less likely chance of you getting unbanned so please don't flood the forums with appeals. Now that you are aware of some of our rules here is a template we would like you to follow when appealing your ban: Username: Ice_King Server: Survival Banned By: Snorlax Date of Ban: 25 May 2015 Reason: Griefing LB Proof Hello, I have been playing on Diamond Shaft now for two months. I first found it while watching a YouTube video of the server. I am fairly familiar with the rules however I noticed that a player had built a home right next to my home and I wanted to take a look in his house. His doors were locked so I had to break into it to get a peek. Whenever I got into it an Admin by the name of Snorlax tped to me and banned me instantly! What the heck! I was going to place it back too! Would you be able to give me one more chance, I am very sorry for the trouble I caused and I will never do it again. Thanks again, Ice_King!
