    Sup Bitches, I know you all remember me and still don't wanna give me OP, whatever. I have a suggestion take it or leave it, but I see a lot of potential in chaotic united not as a server but as a community. The main reason its doing completely garbage is because you're holding onto minecraft. Minecraft it self is dead, so any community related to it will also be dead. Now I am not saying get rid of minecraft because halo has an awkward fetish with blocks but maybe instead turn this into a gaming community. You have everything you need to set your self up for success, but you fail at using it. IPB is a powerful system, and it looks like you guys got it all down pact, except no one wants a whole forums based off minecraft. The old chaotic united was obliviously popping because minecraft was popping, what they did was take what was popular, offer a platform for people to connect on, and add a little twist of customization to keep it going. Example: World of Warcraft Indeed it was a very popular game around 2012 or whatever, so what did the owner decide to do, create a platform for players to interact, then invested in a private custom server to keep those players attracted. Example 2: Runescape It was very popular around the same time, and once again create a platform base for players to interact and socialize, trade ect for the game, invest in a private server to keep the player base connected and involved. Then minecraft you already know how that went. Those games obviously died out but by that time killerteddy knew that and was already planning on switching the game plan. Unfortunately the trail of stupidity caught up to him and he lost everything he had setup in place to keep the dream going. If you guys instead turned this into a hub focused on gaming as a whole, then the players will flow in from those games and hopefully feed off into other games as well. WoW players would hop on MC for a bit, MC players would hop on runescape for a bit so on and so forth, because all those platforms were offered within the same community, friends can go play mc together, then to collect money in runescape or whatever you do in runescape I never played it really. I think in order to achieve this a clean start, or a re make and re open is in order to clear out all the old and re brand and re image chaotic united for what it originally was, a gaming community because that's what everyone misses, the community aspect. Times have changed and chaotic needs the same.

    Howdy folks! Some stuff has been happening the past few days and I think it's high time we let you guys in on some of it. As you probably know, Minecraft 1.14 released just a few days ago. Our test server has, as of today, been updated to 1.14 - granted there's still a ways to go. A lot of stuff is broken, but not as much as was broken with 1.13. Survival is mostly playable, however most other gamemodes aren't functional just yet. This will obviously change as time goes on and things get updated, Spigot and our plugins alike. This is still a fairly decent outcome considering that we are only a few after 1.14's release and we're already somewhat up and running on it. But of course, something else is significant about today. Today is April 26th, CU's birthday. Today marks 8 years since Chaotic United first opened its doors to the world. That's quite a long time, and a lot has changed in the world since 2011. Many of us here were children back then. Many of the people who were around back then have moved on from Minecraft, and many of those did so years ago. For a lot of people, it's sad to look at the current state of the community in comparison to back then. Part of our apparent lack of progress is my fault. For the past couple years I've neglected to run my staff team properly, and over the past couple of years the importance of staff expectations have degraded. The importance of being active decreased, I failed to give people things to do, and people were still growing up and moving into a new phase of their lives. Many of the people who had nothing but time back then nowadays are busy with college, work, or life in general. I've told this to my staff team just the other day, and I'm going to tell you - I want this 8th anniversary to be a turning point. A turning point for me, for this team, and for this community. The torch I've picked up and continue to carry has been neglected - and for that, I am terribly sorry. But sorry isn't enough - the only thing that's enough is correcting the mistakes of the past and building a better future. To deliver on the promises and goals I had back in 2014. And while those goals may be high - too high to be realistic, as some say - I believe in aiming high. A pattern has been consistent for each and every one of these special dates - a promise of "things will get better soon, guys", time and time again like a broken record. My goal is for this one to be the last one. I want our 9th birthday to be a celebration, not a message of hope for the future. I can say things will get good soon, but sooner or later people are going to stop having hope. We've been declining, not growing. I want our next birthday announcement to be reminiscent of the one that was posted after it's first year of life: On 4/21/2012 at 1:47 PM, Spencer said: Chaotic United is now a year old, give or take a couple days. It was once a much smaller community known as "Fatality Minecraft" that only consisted of a Minecraft server, run off of killerteddy's computer. This year has been amazing, we've expanded rapidly and became a successful and known gaming community. Our presence has spawned many other small gaming communities, some chose to try to develop alongside of us and others tried to attack our member base and steal the ideas that our community was founded upon. None of our achievements and goals would have ever been met without you guys, the community. So we owe it all to you. Many original members of Chaotic knew that we were always branded by our blue colour schemed styles so I've decided to revamp our current theme to blue and white as opposed to the green and white. You'll also find various of improvements and new features that were added in the past week. Also, in addition to all this we've reached 100,000 total posts! That's a huge milestone for us, and in less then a week or so we'll hit 25,000 total members. Out of all the projects I've lead or contributed to none has been ever so successful as Chaotic, and I'm proud of what we've all built Chaotic United to be. So once again, thanks everyone for making Chaotic's first year an amazing and the development team is working diligently to produce new and truly custom and immersive content. And also a special thanks to all of our donators and supporterss, without you we wouldn't be able to fund the server costs and development costs. And we're still very proud to say that not even a cent of donation money has ever been spent for our personal benefits. I want next year's post to look more like this, instead of preaching hope of future prospects for the 3rd or 4th year in a row. You'll start seeing the effects of some of these changes as we update to 1.14, and as we move into the rest of the year. Now to clarify something before we wrap up: When I talk about a turning point, I do NOT refer to any shift away from Minecraft. We may start to explore having one or two other servers, but we're gonna be sticking to Minecraft as our main server for many years to come. I firmly believe that the issue is not entirely due to the server itself (though there are definitely some things that need to change on that front), but moreso to do with how we as a team actually function - along with a lack of any sort of marketing/advertisement. Keep your eyes peeled on forums and Discord - things are gonna start happening very soon that will mark a turnaround in this community.

    Sorry to see you go, man. I hate to see you leave outright as I've had some good times with you as well. But I suppose as history has shown, nobody sticks around forever sadly. If you ever decide to return, you can be sure I'll still be around here in some capacity, doing something to help this community move forward. In either case, I'm glad you're starting to get your stuff sorted out, and I'm honored to have been a part of helping you through the trouble and issues you had. It's this kind of stuff that makes running CU worth it - even if it's not as popular as it once was, me being here and keeping CU going is still making a lasting impact on the lives of people. I wish you good luck in your endeavors, and I hope I'll see you again one of these days.

    Hosting our own MC server

    Halo is right on the part of the hosting. I have a server setup for hosting and it is soooo heavy on network usage and electric. My monthly bill in the summer is $300+ and $150+ in the winter. An easy thing to host would end up being websites and thats also tricky as there are so many other web hosts to compete with that you end up having to cut your prices down a lot to even get people interested in your company. Halo does a great job with CU and Michael does a great job as well. I have been following CU for a while now and have seen the progress they have made and they don't stop for anything.

    Hey folks! A quick update to the forums - one that's been a long time coming. We have a new default forums theme. Our previous theme was from 2016, and has been the default theme ever since we came back to these forums from the ND merge. The new theme is a modernized version of that theme along meant to look more consistent with the main CU website. It also includes a couple fixes and tweaks from the default theme on the Elaztek Studios website as it's theme is also based on the old 2016 theme. Along with that, we have a dark theme right off the bat to go along with it. You can find both of these in the Themes menu at the bottom of the page. Along with that, the old 2016 theme is still available in our selection as well. Along with that, we've introduced a new server status page where you can check the status of our gameservers and other services. You'll also see some new stuff in the navigation menu, including Search, Staff, and Support in the appropriate spots. Lastly, I want to apologise for yet another year of minimal progress in the CU front. I know I must sound like a broken record at this point, where every single year I proclaim that we're about to start a grand new path and that this year will be the year that CU finally makes its epic return. And every year ends up mostly the same. One or several things happen that get in the way. 2014 was starting up, 2015 was merging with ND, 2016 was unmerging with ND, 2017 was WF - most of you who've been around a while know most of this. So what happened this year? Well, this year most of the setbacks had less to do with CU itself but rather my own personal life - which is a lot better if you ask me. This year was easily much better than last year, though that's not exactly a difficult thing to do. Earlier this year, I graduated high school and since then I've been slowly attempting to transition into adult life. Things such as driving (because I didn't do that back when I was 16 as I had no desire or use for driving), getting a job, and so on. The driving stuff is still underway, but I've already obtained and left my first job at Walmart. As most of you know, I wasn't exactly active - on anything - during those work days. And despite it being a part time job, I suddenly had a fraction of the time I had before just out of the blue. At that point, any time I had I was dedicating to Elaztek - because I was driven by something that is very alien as a driving force for me - money. Now hold on, don't panic. I'm not going evil corporate on you. I mean money as in the sense of "let me do something that makes me money so I can quit this job and just do what I enjoy doing". I had ideas ranging from loans, to crowdfunding, and so on. Most of you already know how that Kickstarter went (if you don't, it went pretty horribly). This didn't last very long, though, as I quickly grew unhappy with driving everything around money (kind of). I had (and still have) a passion project of mine, that will likely take years to complete. Since that point I'd spent most of my time working on that project. But then something happened that made it where I couldn't. For those of you on Discord, you'll know that I managed to completely rip my Windows 7 installation to pieces (and later put it back together again with duct tape and popsicle sticks), and for several days I didn't have much that I could do on my PC. So, instead of sitting around watching progress bars, I fired up Minecraft. And I felt at home. I felt a powerful flame reignite deep within that had been hidden from view by the chaos of entering/leaving a job, trying to find a game plan for Elaztek, and everything else that was going on at the time. I felt happy, but I also felt a sense of regret - regret that I'd effectively ignored CU for several months. Even though I tell myself it's not entirely my fault, it's still something that hurts and I want to try and turn it around. However, I do still have bills to pay as well. I can't share the details yet, because to be honest, I have yet to even discuss this with the team in detail yet. I want to share it with all of you at the same time. I know that some of you will probably scoff at the idea, but I want to try and push CU into something that is able to actually generate revenue. The amount of money that goes into CU every year is absolutely absurd considering how relatively small it is. It's awesome, and I love it, but there is very little money that comes in. So, with that being said, I'm gonna start spitballing some ideas. Understand that none of these are by any means official plans, because as I said, I haven't even talked to anyone else on the team about this before right now. A couple of ideas I had was selling some of my own skills, such as Graphic Design and Web Design services, templates, and so on through the CU store. To have CU be a sort of web e-commerce platform for web/tech-related stuff, maybe. For many years, monetization has been all but ignored on most of our services. Yeah, there's donation ranks on MC, but those are largely remnants of old CU and ND and very few people buy them to begin with. Beyond that, I've focused more on trying to just build up a server, a website, and a community. The issue is, you need two things to do this: money and time. For most of my time doing this, I've had a hell of a lot of time, but not a lot of money. When I had a job, I was slowly getting funds built up, but once I lost that job that fell apart pretty quickly for obvious reasons. Going forward, I want to introduce more ways of monetization. But I want to do it with you guys. I don't want to (and won't) introduce monetization systems that you guys aren't at least somewhat interested in. Additionally, a lot of my ideas are community-centered. For example, web and graphic design services. Services that YOU - yes, YOU - a member of the CU community, could sell through CU. You would benefit by being able to sell things, and CU would benefit by getting a tiny portion of the funds. Things of that nature. Things where both of us win in the end. It doesn't even have to be graphic design or web or anything like that. If you've got a skill you want to offer to the community (and beyond), let me know! I've been itching to try new things with Chaotic United for a long time, both inside and outside of the gaming world - but I want to make sure you guys are okay with it. I started CU back up as a service to the community, and I refuse to do anything that goes against that. If you guys hate the idea of me trying to utilize CU and its assets to try and generate revenue, then I won't. I'll find another outlet to try these experiments. Back in 2014/2015 when things were just starting back up, there was a common misconception that Aly and I started CU back up with the end goal of just trying to make a quick buck. Back then, I didn't understand the logic. I still don't. But I also don't want this post to seem like a confirmation of some kind of ridiculous nonsense, "oh!!! halo finally admiTS it! he just wants the moNEy!!!!!!11!". That's why I made a nice and simple poll. You tell me what you think of this. I'd love to hear any and all comments and responses to anything I've said, be it positive or negative. I also ask that anyone who sees this votes either on this poll or on the equivalent poll on the Discord announcement to go along with this topic (or both if you want). If you guys don't like it, then I'll continue to steer clear of monetization the way I have been thus far. But, that's not the end of this topic. The title of this topic ends with "and a Thank You" for a reason. As much as I may feel down at times, or unhappy with what seems to be a lack of progress, the new Chaotic United isn't a failure. This year not only has been virtually drama-free, but our player counts have been regularly held up ever since we brought the folks from The Den under our wing. I want to start by just giving a huge thank you to @DownTown and @lipinskip123 for being some of, if not the most active staff on our MC server this year. Not only that, but in doing so, you two have helped to boost the overall player counts. We were getting relatively higher numbers the other day, and I want to thank you both for helping make that happen - and hopefully continue to happen. But along with that, I want to thank all of you. Every single person who has ever set foot into Chaotic United's doors. Whether you joined and played for five minutes in 2011, whether you've been here through every iteration of Chaotic United over it's 7+ year lifespan. From the original Chaotic United run by Killerteddy from 2011 to 2013, to Nuclear District from 2014 to 2016, to the current CU from 2014 and onward. I want to thank everyone who's ever registered on this forum, who's ever joined our Discord, or our Minecraft server - even for just a moment - for being part of this journey. I want to thank each and every one of you for taking the time to stop by and say hello. Most of all, I want to thank those of you who have been dedicated. Those of you who've been around for years and years. Those of you who've stuck around through CU's worst and it's best. You guys are the reason that I started this project, and you give me the drive to keep going. Every time I feel a little down or a little unhappy with CU's progress, I look at you. I think of the people who have been here by my side since the very beginning. You are the reason I started, and you're the reason I'm still here doing this. Before I close off this topic, I want to make a promise to all of you. I promise you that one day, whether it be within the next year, or the next five years, or even ten years, that I will bring Chaotic United back to it's status - and beyond. I can't promise it will be on Minecraft, I can't promise that it won't be a bumpy ride there, but I promise that I will get us there or die trying. Along with that, I want to reaffirm that despite how busy I may get, despite what other stuff I might be doing with my life in the future, that I won't do what so many others have done and just pull out and leave it abandoned. Chaotic United is, has been, and always will be something near and dear to my heart. It ignited a flame within me back in January of 2012, and that flame still burns as bright as it did on day one. I just... I love you guys. Thank you.

    DontBeSoHoty - Ban Appeal

    This is from the ingame rules, note how it says "You will be banned immediately.". Advertising has been and always will be a rule where you get permanently banned upon doing so. I will wait for other staff to overview this and drop some feedback before I make a decision, but you do need to keep these rules in mind. Ignorance to the rules is not an excuse. I would also appreciate an actual appeal instead of just "i dont know why i was banned, it should have been a temp ban".

    Most newer games don't have player-hosted servers, although they have ways to build a community. I'm aware that WoW and Runescape arent particularly new games, in fact they are just a few years younger than me. Both these games have ways to build a community, whether it's clans or friend chats, u can do it. I've played a lot of CS:GO for example with people I met on a runescape clan. With that being said, managing a clan on both of those games can be fun and can help CU grow even if its a smal amount. Other games such as CS:GO do have ways to build servers and connect people. I don't know if you want to dedicate time to opening csgo servers or other shooters such as tf2 but it can be rewarding for the community. Also I do kind of agree with minecraft being "dead". Is it really dead? No. But does it have a declining player base? Yes. With new games coming out such as Fortnite or Apex, people are starting to shift to those games. My young cousins (11yo) used to play minecraft all the time and now just play fornite with their friends. I'm aware this doesn't mean everyone shifted over to these new games and that minecraft isnt just for kids but it's just goes to show that even they are leaving minecraft for other games. A small investment of time into these new games shouldnt hurt this community at all.

    I agree with Jamplifier. if we focus on other games we might have a chance. I'm not saying that we should just get a bunch of game servers, but if we do some research and find a game lots of people are playing and will continue to play (like Minecraft), we might be able to make this community into a big huge community. Now I know that there is legal stuff we have to do but in the long run, I think it will work. That is true, Minecraft is becoming that, but if we expand our servers we will have more players from that game join and like Jampifier said they might want to try out Minecraft and like the game.

    Honestly I agree with you on most of this, except for the whole part about MC being a dead game. I've heard that idea get tossed around a lot and I want to try and explain the other side of that story. There are still a ton of Minecraft-focused communities and forums that all are plenty successful. Generally from what I've seen, people say that Minecraft is a dead game purely because they themselves lost interest in the game. Millions still play it, and I suspect that won't change anytime soon just due to the nature of the game. The game is, in a sense, virtual Lego - it can act as a survival tool but at the core a big focus is creativity. For the creatively-inclined, the game likely won't tire as easily - which is probably why I've been able to stick with it and love it for over 7 years now. As of lately, MC has actually been starting to trend upwards again. For some reason or another the game appears to be coming out of it's perceived dead state. My theory is that the issue is simply advertising. Nobody knows that we exist, and the few who do are people who came from old CU. Virtually everyone here is someone who was on ND or old CU at some point. The only exceptions being friends of those people from old CU. As such, those people have been moving on and nobody has come in to fill their place. I take full fault for that because I'm absolutely clueless on how to actually advertise without something to the effect of paying for premium server listing spots or something of that sort. In regards to the idea of a total "reopening" and "clearing out all the old", I don't know if I'm quite keen on that idea. I'm very much in favor of historical preservation, and at the moment I'm not exactly all that comfortable with the idea of totally doing a 180 and effectively wiping away what we once had. I feel that we have a responsibility to honor the past - not just of the old CU, but of the small yet very real population of people who have stuck around in the new CU and ND too. I'm not entirely against having a focus on things that aren't Minecraft - the primary issue is that for the past several years I've been in a spot where I don't have a ton of resources to do things. That's about to change within the next month or so though. Call it a block fetish (xd) or anything else, MC is something I'm passionate about and it's something that won't be going away anytime soon. I'm all ears for ideas for expansion, but it's likely going to be a long time before we see the end of CU's MC server. In regards to said expansion - what specifically are you suggesting? More servers? Ignoring servers and focusing on Forums/Discord? Something else entirely?

    Server

    The server is indeed still alive, and we aren't going anywhere anytime soon - don't you worry. I do encourage you to check out our Discord as generally people are significantly more active on there more than anything, which you can join here. In terms of Minecraft, while it's not super active, the few of us who are tend to be on the 1.13 testing server as we work on upgrading. I can whitelist you to it if you want - although only Survival is fully functional on that server.

    This is it...

    Many of you may agree with me that my demotion was long overdue. It has been over 2 years since I haven been steadily active. I've been meaning to make a post like this for a while and my demotion finally brought me to make it. I've been thinking about resigning since last summer, but I could never find it in me to do it. Ever since I first joined the original CU it was always my dream to become someone within CU and I was determined to join the staff team to help the community. I had a rough start. I had gotten helper twice and demoted twice. Then came ND and thats where my interest for Minecraft as a whole started to die. I was very active in the begining of ND but that slowly stopped. I didn't want to lose interest so I came back. This was around the time the new CU and ND were merging. I thought hey maybe this new CU will take off let check it out. And thats really where everything started. I met Halo and Aly. I remember halo bringing me through and showing me all of the old spawns and the old CU worlds. That gave me motiviation to play MC again. Then I went without a laptop for quite some time. When I finally got a pc Halo was looking for help with the creative spawn. I thought this was the perfect opportunity to make myself know to CU. From there it was like I was on Discord with Halo and Wolf every day for about a year straight. We had so many ups and downs. I went from Builder, to Helper, to Game Moderator, to Moderator, back to Helper, then to Manager, and I'd like to stop here. The first day I had gotten manager was the best day of my life. It had felt like dream come true. I felt like I was a someone. Then I got demoted 10 minutes later. After everything settled I was Manager, and it stayed that way until not to long ago. By the time all the drama had settled I had already started my 2 years of inactivity. I've come to a realization that I never needed the manager rank to be a someone in the community. And I came to that realization not to long after I first went inactive. As of now CU and Minecraft as a whole are things of my past now. I have outgrown my interest in both. Right now I'm working my hardest to make myself a better person. I'm finally getting my life back together. As of now I have no intentions to become active again nor do I have intentions of going for staff again... ever... I had my fun here and I'd like to leave it at that. You guys gave me some of the most memorable times of my life. This community has been there multiple times for me when no one else was. For a while this community was an escape from a shit reality known as my life. This is it... Goodbye CU </3

    Banned

    You've had numerous incidents on our Discord server, and we've heard this same tale before. I'm sorry to say that this appeal will be getting a rejection for today, and I doubt many others will have any qualms about that verdict. Time and time again, you've blasted out our eardrums, played music, and generally gotten on people's nerves. People got tired of it and so action was taken. You are more than free to continue playing on our MC servers providing you follow the rules, and you're welcome to continue interacting with the community here via the forums. Your best bet is to give it a while when it comes to appealing from Discord. Utilize our other services in the meantime if you like. Also please, use the provided format for creating an appeal the next time. Despite Jayden's statement of "Don't make another appeal", I am entirely open and aware that, given time, people can grow out of their ways. There was a time where both I and Alycat were banned and had no place within Chaotic United, and we eventually became the ones to run the show. Other staff are free to comment if they desire, but regardless of what they say the verdict is going to be a rejection, for now. Give it time. As I said before, it's not the end of the world. You still have access to the rest of CU's services - MC, forums, and so on and you're welcome to play and use them as you wish.

    Hey, folks! Some new things to talk about today! This time, all about the lovely CU website. As of now, we have retired the old CU helpcenter in favor of a new one (which may or may not be based on the one Elaztek uses). Our old one was pretty clunky in both looks and usability. It was generally just not that great. So, we've opted to migrate everything to a brand new helpcenter, integrated into the forums rather than our main website. Some topics (in particular, ones that aren't really standard articles) have not and likely will not be migrated over anytime soon. However, you'll still find links to them in our new helpcenter. The old helpcenter and any links that it contains are now considered legacy and as time goes on will be further and further out of date. You can check out the new helpcenter by clicking here. In the first draft of this announcement, that's all that happened. But then, something else happened - the homepage got a slight facelift. Not a huge change, but if you check the homepage, you'll see the latest announcement topic featured right there, along with the image and other basic information about it. Cool, right? Lastly, our dark theme got all the new banners added to it because it turns out I forgot to add them to it. Better late than never, right? That's all for now folks! We can't share many other details just yet (though you should keep your eyes peeled for some news soon), but 2019 is shaping to be a big year - a truly defining year for CU. You may also notice several staff in Discord in voice (in private staff channels) around 3PM Central, as we're doing a staff meeting today - the first in a while. There's also some other neat things in the works behind the scenes besides that as well - details of which we hope to share soon. But, for now, that's all I've got. See you folks soon!

    Banned (Discord)

    HI Hoty, Unfortunately, a couple weeks ago you circumvented our ban measures on our Discord when I explicitly told you to work out the ban appeal with me one on one or with Halo. But the main problem that we found out was your age, you lied to multiple staff members about your age and with your current age you are not even supposed to have a Discord account. Additionally, since we last spoke, Discord;s twitter came out with a statement saying that servers that are knowingly to have underage members using Discord will have their server and account deleted by Discord. It is with this information that I must deny your ban appeal. I would suggest appealing your ban when you turn 13, since an ample amount of time would have passed and you would be old enough to have a Discord account. But please remember next time to use the ban appeal form. Sorry,, but I hope you have a happy new years,

    Here is my opinion on the ban, I do not honestly care if you return or if you don't get to. You caused a lot of damage and destroyed friendships and even divided the community, we let you back despite the fact I had pretty much permanently banned you, afterwards you attacked halo and made a fool of yourself. If your done being toxic, done causing drama, and done overall being a troll then the team can make a decision to let you back. I do believe in chances. But it's up to the team when you get it considering the severity of the situation.

    Alrighty, mister. Just keep digging a deeper hole. :^) The only reason you weren't banned sooner was because for the past while I've been busy doing a variety of things and I've sadly been unable to be as involved with Chaotic United as I'd like to. Very quickly I was thrust into a position of trying to build up my own game development studio, get a job, and a handful of other responsibilities that leave very little, if any time for CU. As such, I was fairly unaware of most of your past offenses. However, based on these new revelations, as well as seeing how you interact with our other members and our staff team, I have gone ahead and personally banned you from all of our MC servers. The kind of behavior you present to CU is the kind of absolutely shit behavior that we want to keep as far away from here as possible. Your attitude, blatant disrespect for (and outright ignoring of) the rules, trying to bend the rules and frame yourself as innocent, talking shit on our own staff members to try to inflate your own ego, all of this is plain unacceptable. If I were involved as deeply as I was a couple months ago you'd have been banned a lot sooner and never given the chance to potentially appeal as a Griefer. Virtually the entire staff team wants nothing to do with you or your kind. You are an obvious troll and you're going to be treated as such. I've been lenient for a while, to a fault, but those times have come and gone. We want to create a healthy community here at CU, and part of that includes keeping trolls and other shitty people out of it. I think Michael put it quite nicely: You're free to make another appeal or make a donation to get yourself unbanned, however you might want to consider making some changes to your attitude and behavior before you return, if you choose to do so. But I think I speak for not just our team, but CU as a whole when I say that we might just be better off without you. Have a good day, sir.

    Okay first off lets talk about the actual reason you were set to griefer, the following griefing incidents occurred. - You destroyed Downtown’s crops including, sugarcane and pumpkins while he was telling you to stop. Continued jumping up and down destroying more crops. Then shortly after it you called him a loser and left - You claimed you replanted them but only 4 pumpkins were replanted. None of the sugar cane was - You put tons of cactus over his property because “He was a prick” - I also saw a case of spam This is a blatant case of griefing which has been confirmed and has evidence which you can see at the bottom. You also had prior offenses of breaking the rules and causing trouble on both the MC server and Discord. First off lets talking about your behavior towards staff members, you have had multiple cases of acting rude towards staff members. There have been at least 3 cases of where you told a staff member that you would not obey the rules or directives given to you by staff members on Discord and MC combined. After this incident happened with you and Downtown he asked you to stop destroying his stuff to which you replied “No you” and kept causing damage. In the past when a staff member asked gave a directive to stop on Discord, you replied with “I respect no one”. You also cant say we haven’t called you out for your shit, a staff member called you out saying you were being a dick and you replied by saying “Thank You” But lets go farther, you have also scammed players on the server regarding a mob spawner, which was the first real warning before leading up to the minor offenses of you disrespecting staff members. These prior offenses validates that you had done this knowingly and intentionally using very ignorant excuses that quickly fell apart while looking at logs. I will not be removing your griefer rank and can only tell you that if you continue to harass others I will be muting you. In other words I am denying the appeal on behalf of many staff members ~ Kryptoaware/ Awakened Rage Proof: https://gyazo.com/d4aeb187b12bb447c6a5d0ba21c8feb7 https://gyazo.com/02a9dacfca89028b36d02bc228a5980a https://gyazo.com/c66b3e4a9a58353a4b95b6b869a01938 https://gyazo.com/a52b8143641cb2c488d92f8843bd3d27 https://gyazo.com/a11c3c8b89dfa6f712f9d1d19af8713b https://gyazo.com/5d572002e263e1816f8cd705532c25d9 https://gyazo.com/d7c8b6171dc88ef219f6996c76d2fde9 https://gyazo.com/ae94cc6fab46c72eae1b7190184adaf2 https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/211352043200184320/503060193018511360/image0.png https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/211352043200184320/503060193018511362/image1.png https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/211352043200184320/503060193802715156/image2.png https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/211352043200184320/503060193802715157/image3.png

    Mods for Modded

    I just passed this on to Halo. Hardware wise the server can handle it, but its a matter of whether any mods or server plugins conflict with it. You should expect to hear something on the Discord soon about it.

    DontBeSoHoty - Ban Appeal

    I do believe that DontBeSoHoty has had problems in the past listening to rules. When in discord voice chat, he always mic spams, hot mics, from what i know ear rape has not been a big problem with hoty in voice. Its just hoty doesn't know how to follow rules. It does make sense to me that advertising is a big offense. Because thats giving other servers free publicity. If there would ever be any advertising on the server im pretty sure it would be Haloman30 making deals with other servers to advertise each other. Thats if any advertising ever goes on. At CU there is no free publicity for any server of any kind.

    fucking chrome

    I have it but i like chrome better With the new look of chrome if I ever switch browsers i'll probably switch to Pale Moon - it's based on firefox but has a delightful amount of UI customization and I can make it look a lot like chrome thanks to the power of themes :^) but for now im sticking to good ol' chrome 54.0
