Why do you want to become a moderator?:
I want to help keep servers completely free for cheaters and bullsjit - whether it be murdering griefers or helping new player out, I just want it to be a fun time.
What makes you the best candidate?:
I'm well-knowledged in Tekkit, and I don't punish people lightly. I'm less interested in the more godmode-ish aspects of moderator, I prefer to play legit and watch people from a normal point of view - in every other server I've moderated on, I quickly got bored of godmoding all the time. Generally, moderators can't really play with the 'normal' players because of their benefits, be it item spawning or god mode. I'm also a pretty laid-back guy, despite the hyper-seriousness of this application. Not prone to raging, either. (antitroll. <3) I also have experience with PermissionsEx and permissions in general, but I refuse to use GroupManager because it's a disgusting, terrible, child-killing plugin and whenever I see it on a server I feel like eating my own face. Also have plentiful knowledge of plugins and how to use them.
Do you have previous experience moderating?:
Lots of servers, actually. All back on crappy old vanilla minecraft, which I don't plan on returning to. Do offer tech support once every while, though, if they need it. I have lots of contacts on Skype. :P
Do you have previous experience with Tekkit?:
I can use BC, IC and EE to their full extents, and can sort-of use RedPower, but I do learn pretty fast - generally, when I need an item, I just look to NEI for support. :P
I enjoy building things on an enormous scale. I also know vast amounts of redstone machinery and piston-related stuff, from my adventures back on vanilla minecraft. (2x2 sliding door which retracts into the floor FTW!)
We don't deal with applications here, apply on our forums at tekkify.com/forum.
Here, the protection says that when you place your first chest it is protected 9x9, but that isn't mentioned on the protection tutorial on tekkify.com. Could you please confirm if they both protect, or the chest doesn't protect?
Your first chest will protect a 9x9 protection which can be resized using a golden shovel. Anything in-game will always be more up-to-date than threads/forums/sites.
"ComputerCraft - This is disabled mainly because of the malicious code that can be written. This can cause damage to the environment, protected areas and other parts of the server."
LOL! clearly you dont know computercraft.
anything "malicious" i can do with CC i could do just as easy without it.
As I said on another thread, I haven't used ComputerCraft to a great extent, it's only what I've heard and as a security precaution. If someone can prove to me it's safe, I'll happily allow it. Until then, it'll remain banned.
Is it now a white listed server?
Was playing happily on tekkify last night and now it says i am not white listed. What happened?
We were just solving some issues. It appears a few of the top Tekkit servers are being attacked, we are doing our best to prevent it. Expect further crashes.
that is the exact reason why i dont want to be on the tekkit server list :P
most people are paranoid about the "access the internet" aspect of it. understandable, I could see why people would question some random persons mod having the ability to access websites outside the game.
....luckly that is off by default, and any server that wants to use it has to edit the mods config to turn it on.
aside from that, it is basically an extension to redpower. yes, someone could use it to grief, they can also use a mining laser, or reactors, or pickaxes, or there fist.... the difference is where it takes mere seconds to get everything set and go when griefing with all the other tools listed, to do so with computercraft takes hours of tedious coding. anyone dumb enough to hand type out the code needed to use computercraft for griefing instead of just looting somone pickaxe and plowing through that way is a tool and will likely do something else stupid to get banned before they get the first "if" statement done.
but if you are still worried, just blacklist the turtles, and it is 100% harmless to the server. the extent of destruction then is deleting someones program.... and well since theres floppy discs, thats no big deal. just install it on a disc, pop in a computer, presto! install program again.
Summery (TL;DR Version):
in the computercraft mod... the only thing that can have any environmental effects are turtles. computers themselves can only run internal code, or toggle red stone states on and off.... IE, Its a big purdy high tech lever.
Although the potential for internet access is there, it is not active unless you manually set it as so, and it is basic at best. (its used simply to upload and/or install code from paste bin. so people like me that make more than a 10 line code can drop the horrendous in game interface and do all the coding externally via programs such as notepad++)
Please, PLEASE don't let this kid get moderator.
