Since making the transition to a custom modpack from Tekkit Classic, Tekkify has been a popular pack due to it's unique additions and well ran community. We became popular fast as we were one of the first, and still are the most popular server pack on Technic, and we want to continue this in the coming months by providing an enhanced and updated modpack.
The current server and modpack is falling behind in popularity due to the lack of major updates in the past couple of months. Having been stuck in 1.5.2 due to the wait for mods to update we've now reached that all too familiar stage where the map is a mess, the majority of you have finished everything possible and are simply hoarding and in general there's not much to do anymore.
What we would usually do now simply inform you of a map reset, an update and proceed, however after much discussion we've decided to go down a different route this time, which should see the large majority happy with the decision.
Myself and the other admins have had a discussion about the way the warning system currently works and have decided to tweak it slightly to allow a little more lenience when it comes to accidentally leaving your machines online.
Currently, 2 warnings will result in a temp ban, a few users raised this as slightly too harsh and we've decided to make changes to reflect this.
Updated Warning System
Warning 1 - A friendly warning to remind you that you need to ensure you are turning machinery off when you go offline. Warning 2 - If you've left it on again we'll try and assist you as best we can to setup an automatic off switch and again, ask you to remember to turn it all off. Warning 3 - If you've left on a third time, we've assisted you and provided 2 reminders then you will receive a 3 day temporary ban. Warning 4 - Bear in mind warnings expire after 1 month, if you're still ignoring the rules 4 times in one month, after assistance...
Just a quick update to make sure everyone is on the same page. The rules concerning swearing has changed slightly, just to keep chat cleaner and to keep moderation consistent and understandable.
The re-written rule is no cussing. This means no cussing, no f bombs and no swear words in global chat. You can use foul language all you want in clan chat, but not in global. If you do cuss, you will be warned first, then temporarily muted.
Only English should be used in global, just warn them once or twice first before a short mute in this scenario
Any form is swearing is a warning followed by a temporary mute (5-15 mins, depending on # of offences)
Multiple offences (generally 3-4+) will result in a 3h tempban
Excessive swearing (**** ****** ****** **** ****) is an instant temporary mute
Swearing directed at someone is an instant temporary mute
