Rules and Guidelines for Server Posts

Recommended Posts

Guidelines for thread title

It should be in the format:

[Tekkit version]Server name[PvP/PvE/etc][# slots][Greylist*][Any major gameplay changing plugins like iConomy, Towny][Major mods removed]optional slogan

*Only if your server is greylisted.


[3.1.2]Maid's House of Pancakes![PvE][20 slots][Greylist][Towny][ChopTree2][No EE][No BuildCraft]


[3.1.2]Cheaps' Peeps[PvA][15 slots][ChopTree2][No BuildCraft]-Lets get physical, physical.

This way you can get most of the important stuff you are looking for from a server in the thread title. Do not use redundant or useless tags. Just the important information. You can list anything else in your server post.

Guidelines for thread post

The thread must have:

  • Server IP
  • Server rules
  • Any mods removed/disabled from the base Tekkit Pack
  • A list of all banned items that are from mods not listed as disabled. Not a picture, a list. Please note: These are banned items, not restricted.
  • All major plugins on your server
  • A small section describing the server, even if it's just "I was tired of playing alone, so I put this up, come join me"
  • The expected uptime of the server, 24/7, only Tuesdays, whatever
  • A little bit about the community that is currently playing, or the kind of player you want in your server
  • Any details needed for Whitelist/Greylist applications
  • Some effort. We just need to see that you put some effort into your post, that it was something you thought about for at least a few minutes, rather than just posting. Pictures of awesome stuff on your server, spawn, going really indepth into what and why the server, and so forth.

Whitelist vs Greylist vs Open servers:

  • A whitelist server require an application to join the server in the first place. Whirelisted servers belong in the Whitelist server section. Whitelist servers have no further restrictions
  • Grey(or gray)list servers require an application to do anything on the server. Greylist servers belong in the whitelist section. Greylist servers have no further restrictions.
  • Open servers are available for play immediately or near immediately. Open servers belong in the Open server section. Open servers must never have applications to play.
  • All other applications, such as for staff, must be handled so as your thread does not get bumped for it. Some examples of acceptable options: A server admin application in your thread that must be emailed to you. Applications in external forums. Etc..

Higher quality posts have:

  • Always have pictures
  • Going the extra mile in formatting
  • Spent a few hours or more working on the post (it shows!)
  • "Flair"
  • A list of all Plugins, big and small. But be smart, if you have PermissionsEx, for example, you don't need to list ModifyWorld and ChatManager, they're assumed.
  • A list of all restricted items that you need to be a mod or become a "trusted user" or whatever to use/place/have.
  • Describe any themes, events, or gimmicks that your server has.

Threads must never have:

  • A list of mods in the pack. It's Tekkit, we already know what is in it.
  • Mods that are not in Tekkit on your server that require client-side mods. Adding in Forestry is not okay, however adding in a world gen mod is 100% fine. Use your head: If players have to install anything to join, it cannot be posted here.
  • The center, color, text size, and text font tags outside of headers or similar uses.
  • Anything that could be considered facilitating piracy. For example, stating that your server is an offlinemode server.
  • Racist, sexist, homophobic, etc. language.
  • A donation button in the thread.
  • Your server cannot be "pay 2 play" or any other way of requiring players to pay money before connecting.

Server posts that do not conform to these standards will be rejected. Meeting most of the criteria in the Higher Quality section is the only way to be a candidate for Deluxing (Do not request Deluxe. If you are a diamond in the rough we will find you. Attempting to buy or beg for Deluxe will result in blacklisting.)

You will not be required to put [open] or [whitelist] in your server thread titles, since they will be in the proper whitelist or open sections anyway.

You will only need to include [greylist] if your server has a greylist. Otherwise it would be redundant to specify.
