Rules and Guidelines for Custom Server Threads

Recommended Posts

Guidelines for thread title

It should be in the format:

[base Minecraft Version]Server Name[PvP or PvE][# of slots][Custom Modpack Name]

Example:

[1.4.6]Maid's House of Pancakes![PvE][20 slots][Greylist][Pancake Pack]

or

[1.2.5]Cheaps' Peeps[PvA][15 slots][Open][Retro Pack]

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:

  • A link to the Technic Platform page for the modpack
  • Server IP
  • Server rules
  • 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, even for staff.

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 base other than vanilla.
  • 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.
  • Applications in the Open Servers forums.

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.)
