28/02/2015: Meeting Recap
Community News
New Forum Structure As most of you have seen, the forum has had a rapid succession of changes in the structure lately to introduce much needed change. Please note that this may continue - with forums being removed/added occasionally for foreseeable future.
Changes in forum ranks The ranks of vetop and developer no longer exist - vetop has been merged into 'server moderator', and developer into 'server admin', admin has been renamed to 'Community admin'. Ongoing changes to various user groups mean that we ask you to be patient in the event of any momentary loss of service in the forum.
Donation changes The donations have been lowered to reflect the new cost of our servers - with Malcovent now handling donations, so don't be afraid if you see that you're donating to a new email address!
Thank you for your donations so far! Thank you for the generous donations at the start of this week, We understand that the overhaul is taking a while but your continued support is always appreciated. Community admins are doing the best they can to move quickly onto improvements in the game servers we provide

What's happening ESCRestart,

We're gonna watch John Wick tomorrow on synchtube. John Wick is an action-adventure film starring Keanu Reeves, worlds greatest puppy lover, as he avenges the death of his dog. I'll give a wikipedia link for the lazy.

The movie will start tomorrow at 5 pm EST(GMT -5). There will be a special teamspeak room on ts.escaperestart.com, which everyone should come on while the movie is being played, so we can all watch it together. The link for the synchtube room is:

Thank you to Iguana, who will be streaming the movie.

Hope to see you a lot of different people watching!

PS: If this goes over well, we're interested in doing a lot of different genres at different times.

Hi Everyone,

As promised - one change we're introducing in the tail-end of the forum overhaul is sub-forum specific moderators - tasked with pruning and maintaining sub-forums they frequent. All users are welcome to submit an application in the forum accessible by clicking the link below. A pinned thread detailing subforum moderator powers can be found here.

All applications will be subject to review by community administrators at a later stage.

Hello everyone!

Sorry for the unannounced downtime. Malcovent and I have gone through and redone how our forums look! There are plenty of changes and we will continue to work on them, so have a look around and tell us what you think.

We still have plenty of work to do before it's at 100%, including many threads to make, forum mods to appoint, but for now - this is what the forum will look like. Enjoy and have fun with the new subforums!

TO-DO List
  • Figure out a few more forum backgrounds
  • Selecting new forum moderators
  • Locally linking bg rather than external linking (temporary solution)
  • Changing usergroups to new names
  • Thinning down usergroups
  • Fixing breadcrumb ontop of forums
  • New favicon for forums
  • Remove outdated pinned posts, replace.
  • Fix backgrounds not fitting page
  • Remove Wiki
  • Fix 'whose playing' script.
  • Fix subforums not showing corret views


With love,
Community Admins

NEW TEAMSPEAK IP
TS.ESCAPERESTART.COM

So recently me and Sploorky were tasked with overhauling the Teamspeak server to make it a bit more streamlined, and friendlier to use for new users. With the advent of EscapeRestart and freshening everything up, we are doing so again with Teamspeak. Much like the change of TheOne's Vent to TheOne's Teamspeak, to Blocktopia Teamspeak, we're at it once again and have done some editing and streamlining to make things look a lot cleaner are friendlier for the newer playerbase we're planning on bringing in!

One of these additions that we've decided to add is private channels. No more are the days of private rooms discussing topics and having filled rooms with random room invaders. We've decided to embrace private rooms and are now allowing users to ask admins for private channels. We're not trying to get everyone to hide in their own private channels and thus will be using Teamspeak more actively in conjunction with the admins to get people to come out of their hermit holes every once in a while. We understood that if people wanted to spend time with their friends in a private manner then we shouldn't force them out if they didn't want to, so the only thing to do is to embrace it.

~​

FAQ
Q:
What are private channels? How do I get one?
A: They're pretty much private rooms V2! Rather than forcing people out when they'd rather talk to friends, we'll embrace it, and if you have a group of 3 or more people than poke an admin and we'll hook your group up with a channel!

Q: What can I do with my channel?
A: Do whatever you want with it! You can limit it to 8 people, add a password, change the description, do whatever! Obviously the global Teamspeak rules still apply, and we wish for you to not include 18+ content in the description of rooms, have offensive room names, and the likes. If you try to argue...

~ What is Kami’s Realm?

Kami’s Realm is an SMP server with inspiration drawn from modern RPGs. Brought to you by the SMP staff, in collaboration with some of our community's top builders to create a world fleshed out for exploring and adventuring.

~ What sort of features will it have?

Kami’s Realm will feature the largest map out of any of our SMP servers with a 7500 block radius; this gives a lot of room to explore the vastly natural and unnatural parts of the map. The difficulty will be set to normal and this time around, we’ve decided to favour PvPers so none of the map will have PvP protection - with the...
