I've somehow recently gotten back into minecraft, and decided to pick up a domain name, and throw up a vm for minecraft on my Dell Poweredge 2950 that has been itching to make itself useful. It would be awesome to have some players on, and I figured that the Tek Syndicate community would be a good, and relatively tame place to look.
I spent this evening making sure that all of the permissions and plugins were set up correctly, but I'm sure there will be some trial and error. The list of plugins could change in the future as well.
Users start in the "default" or "Noob" group, and will get moved up when they have proven themselves. New players will have build rights, and can make protected plots, but won't have access to any warp commands (/spawn, /home. etc.) or anything else until they have reached the "Trusted" group.
Gimcrack website coming soon. I will try to throw something up within the next few days.
As for voip, I can make a discord, or throw any of the popular voip servers up, it just depends on what people want to use.
I hope to see some people on at some point, maybe we can have spawn be more than just a billboard.
There already is a tek server? I checked the other day,and couldn't find it. Could someone link it? The promotion system is just for anti grief, not for prestige or anything. I just wanted to explain how it worked.
We have not made up our mind on that. We might have to talk to the higher-up guys about this. And if we were to run our official one we would expect someone to administrate the server for most of the time.
I wasnt talking about officialness.. i was speaking to the category locking to level 2's and up but I can see the merit in the argument there. Hmm my console is setup with RCON.. which means anyone appointed to admin on the server can remotely administrate as if they were actually there. Currently that person is @Zibob which he has kindly taken care of it in my absence
Which can be dangerous so the port and method of doing so is only given to admins lol
Ah. We had it lock down at that time due to problems with "new" users or so on the server. You know, griefers. I'm not sure though whether if I could trust a user if I grant them access, that's the only problem. @MisteryAngel, halp!
LOL let us not.. ever bring that up again lol.. Uhmm though i think my server has protections against griefers.. base perms with zero nothing.... they have to be vetted.. fairly against guidelines.. saves headaches
I see that the purpose of making the thread visible to level 2 and above users is to avoid random public users joining in and do stupid shit, as the IP addresses are visible, but I still can't see the sense in that theory. :\
I have a good amount of DDOS and DOS protection from my ISP... in fact they have a strict policy for it. If they see a single port scan its immediately reported.. so ill let that be thrown out there to anyone who wants to try if the section is made public. I see the merit as well. Its just more of an "inconvenience to some" who invite others that are not part of teksyndicate.. which up to this point has been fully permitted as long as they are deemed trustworthy
Fair enough. But that is also why i kept my server unofficial as from what I have seen people do enjoy inviting non affliated friends which by my rather optimistic reckoning would promote people to come chill with their friends on TS... just a thought
Thats a fair argument and a calculated risk. Its why i did not place the server out on like minecraft servers dot com.. LOL.. I trusted my trustworthy players up until this point to have a sense and a say in whether someone could be trusted and invited. If they create a ruccuss i told them to deal with it silently and fairly. which i guess is a different school of thought on moderation.. since there are many lol
shall we continue this elsewhere.. I feel bad for the OP even though it is quite relevant
