For our next event, which for those of you that don't know is literally right after the meeting, we will be doing a karaoke night!

We will have our own bots for music, just send the respectable person your requests! We will have solos, duets, and group songs! Don't be shy, you may think other people will mock you but you should consider this, everyone will be busy mocking me and my terrible singing skills!

So step up and sing your heart, you won't be the only one!

We will have well known songs played and if you need lyrics, just ask!

Sorry for the late post, but we will have a great time!

Good luck and see you there!
Hello. This is becoming a larger issue then I anticipated, so let me put out a global announcement notification about this.

If you use 1 computer to access multiple forum accounts (For example, friends visit you, you have family, etc) certain head staff will get notified. Keep in mind, this is 1 computer, not 1 internet connection. (We have checks for that too.)

Also, one of the accounts gets locked.

The reason for this is because the registration of multiple accounts has caused us problems in the past, and we don't want that to happen again.

If the account gets locked, the alternate associated account will usually get a message within 24 hours from head staff, asking the reason for the computer sharing, or giving a notification of this process. If the reply is acceptable (and it usually is, to be fair) we re-validate the locked account. If both accounts are of known family, or players I tend to know personally, they can get unlocked without a message being sent.

if you DO NOT reply, the locked account DOES NOT get unlocked. Making new accounts means each subsequent account made gets locked too.

It is not our responsibility to take care of your account. If you log in on your brother's / sister's / friend's computer, and your or their account is locked, and we message one of you, it is YOUR job to pass that message along to your friend and to reply to that message.

Also, if it ends up happening 6 times, you need to stop sharing your computer, because it's getting quite tiresome to see the same names pop up EVERY single time.

In short, unless you're family, try to avoid sharing a computer for forum access. It's not against the rules, but it does inconvenience you, for getting your account locked, and makes us do more work.

It's back once again! This time, we shall be playing TF2 again!

We'll have a choice of a few game modes, which I would like all of you to choose for us!

Once again, this is your prime opportunity to blow up some Head Staff, and let's be frank, who doesn't want to‽

Team Fortress 2 is now a free-to-play game, provided to you by Valve! If you do not have Steam, or TF2, I highly suggest that you download it and join us!

Here is a video of my favorite class, The Sniper,



Here is a link to the Team Fortress 2 website for all your TF2 needs, and here is the download link.

See you on the battlefield!

Our homepage for our website is finally up! And it is sponsored by a deadly Crafty after some minds. Our head admin minds. (Only took two months <3)
Forums news and announcements were split in two. News will be featured on the homepage whilst Announcements will be for the forums only. Server voting will appear in announcements.
New logo / banner / slogan by AngelWV <3

In order to keep control of homepage news, the News and Announcements forum has been split into two.

The exact criteria of what will be posted where is something to be determined, but it's essentially this:

Things relevant to the community and people outside the community go in News.

Things relevant to the community only go Announcements (server voting, for example).
After much too long of a wait, the homepage is finally live!

There are some people I'd like to thank.

All of you for your patience.

Anyone who gave me feedback when I posted the original mockup on the old forums.

AngelWV for making the extremely sexy logo!

PickYerPoison for the banner of us being chased by Crafty.

Deadl0ck for adding grass under said banner.

GmK for not murdering me in my sleep :D.

I hope you all enjoy it.

BEST VIEWED IN FIREFOX/CHROME/SAFARI.

Edit: If you can't see it, clear your cache.

Edit 2: If you didn't notice, we've also changed our slogan!

Edit 3: We've split the News and Announcements forum into two. Read more here.

I'm sure many of you are aware of the 404 Challenge and using "404" as a seed for when generating a map. This Sunday, August 21st at 3:30PM CDT we will be opening up our own 404 map for a last-man-standing competition! This event requires no registration, and is first-come-first-served, supporting up to 40 players.

3:30pm CDT = 8:30pm GMT = 6:30am AEST Monday 22 Aug - sorry Aussies :(

For those confused - add 1 hour due to DST, so if you're in england, it starts at 9:30 your time, as you guys are currently GMT+1!

The last player alive will be receiving a great something!

A room will be available for voicechat on Teamspeak, as well as the usual in-game chat.

The event will be on its own server, smp.blocktopia.net:25566

The server will open 30 minutes prior to the time the competition begins!

EVENT RULES:
  • The game will start at sunrise and you have until nightfall to gather supplies and make equipment. At nightfall, all players will be teleported en masse back to the spawn point to dive into the gravel pit!
  • You may gather any resources topside you need to make the items of your choice -- TORCHES WILL BE DISABLED, however, so monster spawning can remain largely unaffected.
  • You may use redstone torches, lava (all players will have access to making and using buckets), flint & steel, and jack-o-lanterns as light sources, should you happen to be able to make them.
  • Myself or another Admin/Controller will break ground on the gravel when it is time to descend. At this point, you must ride the waterfall all the way to the bottom! Careful not to fall too far and die on impact!
  • Survive and thrive. Don't simply build a wall around yourself -- players who hide or box themselves in may meet a gruesome fate!
  • Only mine ores that are visible. If you see an ore, you can mine it and the blocks around...
