Our New Global Owner

As you know, Arcator over the past 18 months has underwent an explosion in the number of servers from MC1 to MC12 make that MC13. Given how each of these servers has about 30 plugins, hundreds of config files, and thousands of settings, the amount of administration required for small changes has significantly increased. For this reason I'm introducing Onfim as Global Owner to assist with management.

You may've known Onfim as the friendly user who roams our Discord. His dedication to being online near constantly makes him a great possible asset for our staff team. While having not achieved a single thing with his Admin rank on Discord, I still believe he can be an invaluable member for Arcator's future.

Our friend Onfim will now be in charge of Arcator starting on April 1st 2017. He will be managing a large number of plugins and config files on all servers. I hope to show him how to manage MC6 and MC7 with time.

Just a small reminder

If you're a staff member, you're expected to wish to be staff because you desire to help other people and make the community a special place.

Therefore, if you go on other servers, regardless of whether they are Arcator or non-Arcator servers, you are expected to follow their respective community rules. We're not going to enforce bans or demotions on actions that took place elsewhere, but just use your common sense and realize that if you're here to be staff to help others on Arcator, you should have no reason to cause issues in other people's communities. Follow rules if they make sense, just act in a way that doesn't cost others.

This is merely a guideline and recommendation, but if you ever find yourself griefing on some server where it's not allowed, or trolling some user at their expense, you honestly shouldn't be a staff member here. We're not going to demote you over it, but it would be appreciated if you resigned.

For any looking to apply for staff, if you agree without doubt that you will merely try to give back to a community more than you've received, we'd be happy to have you. There's a reason there's no staff limit, no demotions based on inactivity, and that's because good-will doesn't degrade with time, or lose its luster among the presence of others.

Arcators 2012 spawn revision

Revision of Arcators 2012 spawn
Dear Arcatorians,
Me, werewolf991, and jordanbw1 have decided to renovate Arcators 2012 spawn. We understand this world is full of memories so we have decided to take that into consideration. We all agreed to leave the buildings intact, but just fix some of the little cracks in them. If any 2012 arcatorians would like to have their house decorated or fixed let either KomodoDragon108, werewolf991, or jordanbw1 know so we may do that. And if any arcator staff members would like to help let one of us know so we can add you to the list. Thank you for taking the time to read this post.

Should AFK Time Be Part of Player Stats?

BBCode Image

Over the past few days, whether AFK time should count towards player stats has been discussed. Right now, AFK time is counted just like active time, in that a person leaving MC open for a day can get as many hours as someone who plays regularly for a week.

Keep in mind there are many valid reasons for AFK'ing, such as acting as a chunk loader for a resource farm. However, having AFK time contribute to player stats means that people who actively talk to others and builds things are easily being swamped by someone just trying to race to the top.

We've already had a case in which one user would try and race to the top of the stats page, idling for 2 weeks. Thereby allowing them to surpass many other users who were so active in 2011/2012 that they had been on the stats page for 5 years, as well as the hundreds of others not visible. In theory, if AFK time is not counted like active time, everyone's playtime would be far more genuine in showing when they play rather than idle.

In addition, it is possible for past AFK time to be subtracted from the stats page. There are log files which could easily allow the statistics to be readjusted to be genuine. There is no risk of losing your non-AFK time which makes subtracting AFK time completely viable.

Also as a full disclosure, I've subtracted 100 hours from my user to compensate for my own 2015 AFK'ing. At the time I'd AFK to see if another user would login, something now obsolete with Discord. In addition, if anyone has arguments in favour of grouping AFK time, please comment and I'll add them here. This poll isn't about a race to the top, it's about accuracy, fairness, and being genuine.

Should some grandfathered staff be demoted?

Why Remove
There has been some talk about the staff list being messy, and we could shorten it by demoting the grandfathered staff that haven't logged in over a year.

Why Keep
Link...

Of course such staff are only present on MC1 (Creative) and MC2 (Factions), the spiritual successors of Arcator 2011/2012. They could get their position back if they request. This is a topic that we are very interested to see the results in.

Thanks,
~Darrion
