Moderator Application / Doc's Mod application
« on: December 22, 2021, 10:04:24 PM »
- What is your in-game name?:

Dr_MineStein

- Current Rank?:

My current rank is Senior Member [SM]
My current rank is 15$ Green Donator [D]

- Where are you from?:

Southern East Coast, USA

- What is your age?:

18

- How often do you vote?:

I vote every day.

- When did you join the server?:

I joined mid-March 2021, but started actively playing since May 20th, 2021.

- What time of the day are you on? (include timezone):

I'm online the following parts of the day:
  • 8 - 10 AM EST
  • 12 - 2:30 PM EST
  • 4 - 6 PM EST

- Are you currently staff on any other servers?:

I actually am. I'm one of the head Admins (with Server Operator status) on my old high school run Minecraft SMP.
(Please note I cannot share the name nor IP, it is solely for school alumni and students, giving out information can cause problems for myself.)

- Why do you think should you be promoted and how will you be helpful?:

A lot of people compliment me for learning by just watching others, and I have learnt about the staff culture here on SentinelCraft like that. For example: Once, a new player joined, and after some time they mentioned that they already joined the server before and are just using a new username and playing. My first instinct was to point out that they're breaking the rules. But Ople was on, and I thought let's see how he handles the situation. In short, he did a great job - he calmly asked the guy what their old username was, and then patiently explained they should use their previous account or request a transfer. Not sure if I can recollect correctly, but the guy agreed and joined with his old account name. If we had shouted "hey you're breaking the rules!", most probably they would have left or become mad and caused more chaos. Similarly, I've been close friends with evzntv, and have often observed how he calmly addresses problematic situations and rule breakers (especially as mayor of Faygo Dreams, he has had to deal with griefers, people not replanting, etc.). I feel that, having closely observed such situations, I can help the community in a similar manner as a Moderator.

Currently I am mayor of my town, Zion, and Nation Assistant for the second largest nation on the server, United Faygo Order. With the help of my co-mayor ___Pinheiro___ I learned a lot about Towny, its commands, and how to use them. I have read both the towny guide on our website and the official Towny Wiki on GitHub/Fandom. As mayor, I have understood the Towny culture on the server and as Moderator can better help in this regard.

Since August 2021, I have been one of the head Admins on the SMP. I obviously have to know some things, such as using the console, collecting logs, and mainly in-game moderation. The server has about 50 - 80 players at a time. It is a Vanilla Spigot server without any plugins installed, hosted on a server computer in the High School which I either remotely access or personally access. So in terms of server setup, I'm still learning but quite familiar, so I hope to help in this regard as well.

I haven't been staff on many Minecraft servers but I have been a Discord Admin on Jartex and Blockdrop. My main business was managing bots, keeping an eye over channels, muting/banning users when necessary, etc. Additionally, I had my own two Discord servers - one for Skywars and one for Bedwars (the latter still remains, although inactive) each topping 100+ players. As may be understood how much work setting up and maintaining a large Discord server would be - I have a lot of knowledge on this front.

Using all this experience I have gained, I hope to use them for a good cause for SentinelCraft to the best of my ability, and hopefully remove some extra load on staff's shoulders. Even as SM when staff is busy, I answer basic questions about the server to new players as well as those that may have a doubt sometimes. However, I wish to do more than just this and think I would and can be more helpful as a Moderator.


- Do you feel like you can be neutral and be loyal to the server rules above all else?:

Of course! Let's face it, a lot of us (at least me) first have the idea that rules are restrictive, annoying, and pointless - rather, rules are there to ensure fairness, maintain a great community, and increase support. I understand the reason for the existence of server rules and I, as Moderator, will keep that in the front of my mind at all times, remaining both loyal and neutral to the server rules above anything else, even if it means sacrificing a relationship for the benefit of the wider community.

- Additional Information:

Last but not least, I feel that the past seven months on the server was a time of excitement and fun, but more importantly, progress. My start on the server, unlike most regulars, wasn't a very good one. Made my mark with a jail on day one, day two got released from jail but got both muted and banned on the same day. However, I considered my ban more of a learning experience than a punishment. Immediately after my unban, I was determined to change myself and show my dedication, eventually earning myself the Senior Member rank. On the way, I gained the friendship and trust of amazing folks like King_fat_hamm, evzntv, Baked_Tater, SweatyKido, jjimm, and so on. I helped develop new towns and eventually in collaboration with Pinheiro started my own. I also brought a few people along into the server. Basically, this growth mindset of being able to progress, learn more, and contribute would be a great asset to the server.

Many thanks to the Senior Staff who are reviewing this application - they continue to make decisions in a timely manner and improve the server, even with personal life problems and responsibilities. Apologize for the large post, but I wanted to be as detailed in my abilities as possible, so I may contribute to (in all seriousness) the best server I have ever come across in my entire 8 year journey of playing Minecraft.

In the event of a rejection, I would prefer a detailed private response.

Yours Sincerely,

-Doc

EDIT: Updated current rank.

Zion / Zion Tax Policy
« on: October 13, 2021, 09:26:55 PM »
Zion Tax Changes!



Hello Folks! Due to new changes to the towny system made by SentinelCraft Staff, Zion shall now start implementing taxes! As the current size of the town is fairly small with an upkeep of $795 per day (as of October 13 2021), the taxes shall be low. However as the town grows bigger taxes may have to be increased. As always, Zion Town Staff (Recruiter+) will be exempt from all taxes. VIPs shall also be exempt from all taxes.

The new town changes are as follows!
- STANDARD RESIDENT TAX: $15
- PLOT TAX (16X16 - one chunks): $5
- PLOT TAX (16X32 - two chunks): $10
- PLOT TAX (32X32 - four chunks): $20
- EMBASSY TAX (16X16 - one chunk): $20
- EMBASSY TAX (32X32 - four chunks): $80


Zion currently does not have a spawn-cost ($0)

Please note that all these taxes are subject to change and will be updated accordingly. Tax changelogs will be added below this thread when needed.

Additionally, by owning a plot AND/OR being part of the town means you agree to pay these taxes!!

Bungee Bug Reports / McMMO Announcing advancements throughout server
« on: August 10, 2021, 05:05:21 PM »
- Name: McMMO Announcing advancements throughout server

- Description/summary: When I get a total power level increase or specific skill increase to the next hundredth, it announces to the entire server (EXCLUDING sb and cb servers) that 'playername' has reached a power level of 'xxxx'

- Screenshot
Screenshot below:

- Why do you think this is a bug
Its not supposed to announce my advancements to the whole server. At least that's what I believe. HvPanda advised me to report it.

Hello,

I had around 10,000 claim blocks (grief prevention, Horizon world) before bungee transfer, however after bungee transfer, it had been reset (starting at 128 blocks I believe), and I currently have only 480~ claim blocks available. Please take a look. Thanks.

Senior Member Application / Doc's SM application
« on: July 24, 2021, 11:04:51 PM »
- What is your in-game name? : Dr_MineStein

- Have you been active for at least 1 month?: Yes, been active almost everyday since May 20, 2021

- Have you been helpful for other people on the server? If yes, who and how?:
According to my knowledge, I have been very helpful and courteous to many people on the server. I don't like boasting about who I helped but since it has been asked I shall state a few below:
  1. Greeting everyone with a Welcome Back
  2. Give free iron armor, tools, and food to new players (TheHenchestBloke, and lot of other guys I don?t remember their ign)
  3. Helped King_fat_hamm with developing Final (free materials, building)
  4. Helped (and helping) my homies at Faygo Dreams, now United Faygo Order (currently architect)
  5. Teaching new players how to earn money - GamerLeo, GlowSquidGamer, and some other folks (I don?t remember their ign)
  6. Giving people birthday gifts on their bday
  7. Giving bugsy glass bottles/shulkers for her awesome brewery :)
  8. Buying a ton of moog?s golden carrots on /ah
  9. Gave GamingWithSky a stack of gold blocks so he could buy a piglin step disc (for free ofc)
  11. Donated a maxed diamond pick, maxed diamond sword, maxed full set of netherite armor for my lazy ass brother DaDiamondHeist :]
  10. Overall just being plain nice to the sentinel community

Oh i forgot: Making bugs and baked my co-mayors after taking over faygo :D

- Have you been jailed/muted/rules restricted before? If yes, what punishment and motive?:

Muted: Not knowing how to use /l and annoying staff (especially Pau) with trying to get stuff
Jailed: Fly hacking around spawn
Banned: Bigotry against LGBTQ members (see additional info for more info)

- Do you vote regularly? : Everyday - that?s pretty much the only thing I can do to contribute to the server, unfortunately can?t donate atm.

- Are you going to be active and keep in touch on the forums?:
Absolutely, lately I have been reading a lot of stuff on the forums. I?m a big fan of my man ev?s WOs, Staff?s Dev Diaries, and most of all Migas?s Memory Lane series - it?s really awesome to get to know all the fantastic folks who did so much for the server, without whom I couldn?t have played on such an amazing server as SentinelCraft! Also a huge huge thanks to folks like Thorn, Joelle, and Moog who have been making excellent guides so players like me have an easier time using the server?s features!

- Additional Information:
I registered around late March on the server, soon got jailed/banned. I was unbanned on May 20 this year, and I have been regularly playing on the server since. I had thought about applying for SM but I wanted to demonstrate my commitment to the rules and the server so I have waited for a little more than two months after I got unbanned to apply. I sincerely hope I have demonstrated my maturity and my following of the rules through the last two months.

I also want to let everyone know that I do not believe I still am who I was a few months ago: I have changed and I am no longer a restless hacker (despite my personal text lol), impatient kid, and easily triggered person who does not check what comes out of his mouth. I would like everyone to know that God has created everyone equal and there is no right to anyone to criticize someone/group for who they are, and also I do not have any hatred for anyone for who they are. (This is in reference to my ban) I wish only love and happiness to my fam at Sentinel.

Biggie ty to staff who are reviewing this application!

-Doc



EDIT: I don't know why all the apostrophes (') are changed to a question mark (?) some error when copying from MS Word. Just FYI :)

Ban Appeals / Ban Appeal
« on: April 01, 2021, 12:07:07 AM »
- In-game name: Dr_MineStein

- Date and time of ban? (Include Timezone): 6:55 PM - 7:00 PM EST

- Which Staff member banned you? (Blank if you do not know) I think Paulina owner of server

- Why were you banned? (What Appears on your ban message) Discrimination against LGBTQ members (*** specifically)

- Were you previously jailed or muted? (If yes, say why) jailed for flying, muted for chat spam
 
- Why should you be unbanned? Im sorry didn't realize i was breaking rules and being discriminatory

Additional Information:

Yes I know that I have a bad history (been muted, jailed, now banned) but I never realized that what I was saying was discriminatory or forgot about the rules. Besides, another guy was speaking vulgar language so I thought its fine. I just need one chance I promise I wont do what I did again. PLEASE.
