March GSM, New Admod Building, Spawnpartments, and Infinite Things!


Hey guys! A few fun announcements to begin your week.

First, our next General Staff Meeting will occur on Saturday, March 1, 2014 at 9:00 PM GMT (learn what time that is for you at http://dft.ba/-MRTGSM). We are accepting Trusted nominations at the usual place, http://dft.ba/-MRTNominate, and we are also accepting Moderator nominations there (though we might not actually promote anyone). Under the new Warning Policy, members who have one minor warning against them (see my latest post for examples) may be nominated and promoted up. We will be doing our next Inactive Build Auction in April.

Second, if you haven’t seen the latest Dynmap renders or been on the server, we’ve completely redone the Admod Building! We’ve redesigned it to be more aesthetically appealing (to some), give the staff more open office space, and have our meetings on the ground floor. We’ve also added more offices to reflect our growing player base, and hopefully this will be one of many steps to reduce the lag in the Spawn City area.

Third, along the lines of “redo all the things”, Spawnpartments has been redone as well. Now with a 158% increase in capacity, Members and up can claim and build in any one apartment while they get settled into the rest of the server. Please observe the rules and guidelines posted on the red boards as you enter the building.

Finally, inside Spawn Station itself, we have started the process of reducing the lag. One of the new things that has been added is an infinite item dispenser system made out of command blocks, which gives out infinite stacks of useful items like minecarts, night vision potions, Notch apples, and of course tacos. Push the button and you will receive an infinite stack of the item you selected. How convenient!

Frumple will be back in just two short weeks, but until then, please don’t hesitate to contact any of the admins with any questions or concerns.

Have a good day! As they say in my hometown, don’t forget to be awesome.
