    MyrilMC Announcements: Early July

    Rule Changes:
    -Sexual/Explicit Roleplaying is now a 1 week Ban (serverwide)
    -”Illegal Items” rule added to official Rulebook (creative)
    -Offenses that formerly had a mute as a punishment are now interchangeable with being jailed.
    -Punishments can be altered if new evidence is brought to light, without needing an official ban appeal.


    Upcoming Reset Notes

    Unbanning: In the past, when the server has reset or been revamped, there has been a massive “unban” wave allowing all previously banned players to return to the server. After deliberation, we have decided that this is not the best course of action for the future. Instead, players must submit a thorough and rigorous version of a ban appeal before the reset. This will allow us to determine on a case by case basis who should return to Myril, and who will stay banned after the reset. A new area will be opened to allow these appeals to be posted. You will have only one chance for this appeal, so make it count!

    Factions: You all have heard a lot about the upcoming factions revamp. Thanks to hard work from the build team and our administrators, the revamp is getting nearer and nearer to completion. An official release date will be announced when available, but we all appreciate the patience you all have had. Speaking from experience by testing out some of the new additions, this revamp will be something all players can enjoy!

    Plotworlds

    This is a Reminder to people playing on servers which utilize plots (Creative, Prison, Survival). After a period of 3 months inactivity, a plot can and will be deleted. This is to ensure that plots near spawn or populated areas are free for new players or players hoping to expand. Keep this in mind as you play so you don't lose your plots!

    New Administrator
    Congratulations are in order for Harry, the newest member of Myril’s Admin team. A long term player of the server, he has been elevated from moderator status to help develop new additions to the server and help manage the staff team. Wish him the best of luck in this recent promotion!

    Factions Spawners
    A bug has been discovered where using a mob egg on a spawner changes it into a “0 spawner”. Until such a time that this can be resolved, please contact a staff member any time you buy new mob eggs. We are able to convert them into eggs that will work for spawners. Keep in mind, you must have the eggs that you want changed. We will not refund any eggs that were lost, as we don't know if you really used a creeper egg or a cheaper one.

    Retrieving Old Ranks
    For anyone that missed the announcement, we can no longer restore old aviatorcraft ranks. If you've already had the equivalent of your old rank added - don't worry about this, you will keep it. However, due to the fact that we don't have the old buycraft logs and it's too much of a hassle to contact Zach for every case, we won't be restoring any more aviatorcraft rank equivalents. Sorry to anyone that wasn't able to recover their rank, but you can always donate again for the awesome perks!


    Announcements
    We hope to release announcements similar to this one on a monthly/every few weeks basis. If you have any suggestions for things to include or any changes, please say so in the suggestions part of the forums. Thanks!

    We no longer restore ranks from aviatorcraft because we aren't in possession of the donation records, Zach is. Contacting him each individual time someone needs a rank has become impractical, and due to the fact that players have had a year or longer to get their ranks from back then, we no longer do so.

    No, we, as a staff team, found that sex roleplays were in-general lewd, all we'd see in chat were sex roleplays.

    well of course, and i respek that. but if the kids wanna have sex why stop them? They're just gonna ditch your server and only play on sexycraft.

    Permabanning people and making rules that disallow activities players perform each day... are you... trying... to damage your playerbase?

    We made sex rps illegal because both the staff and administration felt that it was inappropriate for the majority of our playerbase, and for the older players, you're perfectly capable of doing so off the server where it's your responsibility alone.

    As for Jailing, that alternative is offered because players would still be harassing with signs or books while muted, effectively removing the point of muting. Players are only jailed if they attempt to evade a mute in this way.

    Due to us being responsible for what happens on the server, the staff has to make decisions that are appropriate for the server as a whole. The simple fact is that we do have younger players join the server, so we made this rule to protect them AND to remove an inappropriate part of the server.

    To put it simply, making sexual rps illegal had only positive effects, and no negative ones. We made a more friendly and appropriate server for younger players, and people that are seriously intent on that kind of rping can do it in messages. We just simply won't allow/support it on the server.

    If you have a realistic problem with or suggestion for this, feel free to say so in a suggestion thread. Thanks!

    kk.. Cuz I was the one that wanted the sex role play rule to be added is cuz if someone was to get in trouble over it in real life, if a parent or garden was to see them doing this and we did not have a rule in play to stop this it could come back on us for being ok with sexual even if they are minors.
    If this was to happen the staff team would be the one to blame, more Alex and Carmau. They would be the ones that own the server there for its their respirability to make sure nothing like this happens. Not everyone is who they say they are, someone could be 34 and be saying they are 12 When they get caught we will be the ones to blame.

    Shouldn't it be the parents job to keep them away from this?
