Due to some discussion by some users recently, we've decided to go ahead and do a short survey on people's opinions on meetings.

For those who are unaware, meetings take place on Discord every 2 weeks at 8PM GMT (the next meeting is 5th August) where staff read out news from servers and users can ask questions before the recap is posted.

It won't take too long to complete, but we just wanted some opinions on the current format and ways we could improve it.

Respond to the survey here:

7 Days to Die is an open-world game that is a unique combination of first person shooter, survival horror, tower defense, and role-playing games. Play the definitive zombie survival sandbox RPG that came first. Navezgane awaits!

If you don't know what 7 Days to Die is, I'd highly recommend reading this post from Ogarci - he explains the game brilliantly there. In a nutshell, 7 Days to Die is a zombie survival game, where you start with nothing in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, filled with zombie hordes. You must survive against the environment and your own thirst and hunger as you build and craft to defend yourself. The creators describe it as "the survival horde crafting game" - whilst 7DTD provides new elements of challenge, Minecraft players shouldn't feel too out of their comfort zone!

But why am I telling you about this game? There has recently been a petition for creating an event server for this (read Ogarci's post yet?) that has been gaining quite a bit of momentum recently, so we'd like to see what you guys think of the game. What you should know, though, is that the game is on sale right now on Humble Bundle for $9.99! The sale only lasts for one week, so if you'd like to play on the event and you don't already have the game, make your way down to https://www.humblebundle.com/store/7-days-to-die to take advantage of the 60% off deal before it runs out. The game is usually $24.99, so it is a massive saving. Even if you don't have the time to play with us, it is a fantastic game to get anyway.

If you'd like us to host an event server for this, it is essential that you show your support in the poll attached to the post. We need to know if enough people are going to play...​

It's not a very well kept secret that a SMP server is currently being developed. The team has come to a crossroads and decided to reach out at the community for help. Progress hasn't been very high and we feel a detailed survey will help move things into gear.

We realise that our Legacies of Primordia didn't go so well and we are taking measures to prevent the same sort of thing from happening again. We appreciate every piece of feedback and promise to read every word. Thank you for sticking with us.

Thanks to Arelic for the banner.

Reddit - /r/EscapeRestart was recently acquired again, Jeercrul has offered to help with the CSS. The subreddit is still a large WIP, and is under-going a lot of changes atm - so it may be a bit messy. Also, we have posted a post on /r/mcservers! If you want, you should go upvote it so we can get more users. You can view the post here.

Graphics - There's a ton of new graphics coming out soon also, so be prepared for that. You will be seeing screenshots and other images with them soon....​
Hi, just a quick post.

For a while, probably too long now, we've been discussing a few changes to bans and ban appeals. This will allow us to provide banned users with a bit of consistency on how we handle their bans and therefore try to ensure everyone is treated fairly. Establishing a policy now should ensure we avoid the CAs changing policy every few months in the future. The main changes aren't too revolutionary, but here they are:
  • Permanent bans have been abolished. For all global bans, they will be replaced with bans that are appealable after at least one year. People currently on permanent global bans may appeal a year after their ban/last appeal. People currently on permanent server bans may appeal 6 months after either their last appeal if one was made, or their ban.
  • Forum-banned people have the option to evade to appeal ONLY, as well as appealing through someone else. We’d like to have made a solution where banned people could appeal through their own account, but that is currently not yet possible. When it is possible, this will no longer be required.
  • There will be a couple of things made consistent behind the scenes. If a staff member fails to respond to a ban appeal or they are no longer staff, the server staff will instead vote on the unban. With a global ban appeal, the admins will vote on the matter. A 70% majority is needed for an unban.
These changes were discussed very heavily amongst the admins, and the full "policy" is available at https://escaperestart.com/forum/help/afterappeal/. Hopefully, this should have a positive impact on the ban appeal system, providing some stability on the whole issue, and an opportunity for those currently permabanned to prove that they are good, whilst keeping...
