Notice Server Posting Guidelines (Updated 21/1/13)

Recommended Posts

All Servers that do not follow ther posting guidelines will be Deleted

Guidelines for thread title

It should be in the format:

[Voltz version]Server name[PvP/PvE/etc][# slots][whitelist][Major mods removed]optional slogan


[Voltz V10]Cube War![PvE][20 slots][Whitelist][No Mystcraft]


[Voltz V10] War of The World [PvP][15 slots][No Mystcraft]-Lets go to War

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 Voltz 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.
  • 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 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 Open servers:

  • A whitelist server requires an application to join the server in the first place. Whitelisted servers belong in the Whitelist server section. Whitelist 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 list of mods in the pack. It's Voltz, we already know what is in it.
  • Mods that are not in Voltz 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.

All Servers that do not follow the server posting guidelines will be DELETED.
