    Hello Diversity! It has been awhile since the news team has posted an update. We apologize for the inactivity on our part, and are hoping to make it up to you today with some exciting news! Summer is here and it's a great time to spend time with friends indoor and outdoors! School has just gotten out so most people have been more active on our server. With school being out, the server can get laggy. But don’t let that stop you from hanging out with old server friends and even making new. Summer is a great time to start a new project! Or even finish old ones. The one thing we are all eager for is the new update. With the update coming up, it is a great time to prepare a new base. You can even find some friends to make one with. You can also prepare a farm for drowning zombies, so you can get a trident. Also, in the new update, we are getting “Mob B” which is called the phantom. Don’t forget to sleep!.....like we will be able to. Although most of us would prefer to play on the wonderful server all day, it is good to get outside every now and then. It could be as simple as taking a walk around your community, or as extravagant as planning a trip across the globe. And if you are old enough, you could even get a job and earn some cash. Pride Month As many of you know, it’s June. Well, at least I’m hoping you know. In the United States, June is considered Pride month, and here on Diversity, we have plenty of people that are a part of the LGBT+ community. On June 26th of 2015, the Supreme Court passed a law that required the fifty states to legalize same-sex marriage, which led to June being known as Pride month. Pride month isn’t all about same-sex marriage; it’s to honor all of those who fought against the hate to get us where we are today! The first gay pride parade ever was held in November of 1969 in New York, thanks to Graig Rodwell, who was a gay rights activist. Make sure to support your fellow LGBT+ members! Fourth of July As an American, I have spent an obnoxious amount of time learning about American independence and the Revolutionary War. I’m sure most of you are either not American or have simply forgot, so here’s a little information on what the Fourth of July (also known as Independence Day) is. It all started with what the Americans thought was unfair taxing from the British. They decided enough was enough, and wanted independence from Britain. Seven years of fighting later, the war came to an end. However, those years of fighting were not in vain. On July 2nd, 1776, the Declaration of Independence was signed. This document severed all political connections with England. Thomas Jefferson thought the second day of July would go down in infamy, but he was off by two days. Instead of celebrating the signing of this document, we celebrate the day it was published. The finalizing of a document may not be the most exciting thing, but the celebrations are wild. Collectively, Americans consume about 155 million hotdogs and 700 million pounds of chicken on July 4th. They also spend $92 million on chips, $167.5 million on watermelon, and $341.4 million on beer. Some cities also go big for the celebrations. In 1979 Seward was designated "America's Official Fourth of July City-Small Town USA" by resolution of Congress. Seward is a town with a population of 6,000, but that number swells to 40,000+ for the 4th. Even non-American countries celebrate. Denmark, Norway, Portugal, Sweden, and (ironically) England host celebrations as a way to bring in tourists. Some people go wild on the 4th of July, but most people just enjoy a barbeque and have fun. Happy Independence Day to those who celebrate, and to those who don’t, I hope you learned a little more about one of America’s most notorious holidays! Events! In preparation for the summer, the staff and news team have worked to make new events for the summer. The first one we have is a build battle. The theme will be anything and everything summer! Ranging from beaches to huge ice cream cones! If you can think it, build it. It will be held throughout the entire month of July! Teaming with other players is not allowed, and 1 plot per person. No alts will be given plots. Plots will be given out for the first 2 weeks of July. To get a plot, ask Snow if you see her online, or open a ticket asking for a plot at the summer build battle event! And as always, prizes will be given! Happy building. The second event planned is a Fourth of July themed obstacle course. It will be run at 4pm EST on July 1st! Make sure you are ready to have fun with friends! Well Diversity have an awesome summer! We all hope to see you around on discord and on the server. ~Diversity News Team

    1.13 is finally upon us! Unfortunately it will be a while until Diversity is compatible with this version, so you'll need to keep using 1.12.2 in the meantime. Some of you may not know how to downgrade, so I'm posting this guide to help you out. PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS GUIDE ASSUMES YOU ARE USING THE OFFICIAL MINECRAFT LAUNCHER Step 1: Click on the Launch options button in the launcher, outlined red below Step 2: Click Add new to add a new launch profile Step 3: Give your launch profile a name (for simplicity sake, I've named mine "1.12"), then choose release 1.12.2 from the dropdown menu as shown below - make sure it's 1.12.2 and not just 1.12! Click the Save button once you've done this and go back to the News tab. Step 4: Now that you've created a 1.12.2 profile, you need to make sure you load it, so click the up arrow next to PLAY and choose the profile you just created. Then click the PLAY button, and you're on your way Please do not ask when Diversity will upgrade, because we do not know! It could be weeks, it could be months. Your patience is appreciated. Thank you.

    Essentially what TwoDog said. The SMP server is meant to primarily be survival based. The Printer aspect of the Schematica mod is very, very "cheaty" and it's unfair to other players who spend a lot of time and effort building amazing things the old fashioned way. If you want to cheat a build, whether its by just printing other people's work, using a mod to save time, or using creative inventories, that's what creative servers are for.

    Hi WitheredFlame, Although I'm sure the admins will have a better response to you on this, I just wanted to add a little bit of input. As far as I know, this was the primary reason that the mod was banned. Most aspects of the mod were fine, just this one proved to cause a few liabilities. The main one being a large disadvantage it provided to other players not using the mod. Most people enjoy building, and the reward that comes out of finishing a build, and allowing players to have an advantage over others due to a mod. If you're really too lazy to want to build it how most normal players do, why build it in the first place? tl;dr We're not welcoming of the cheaty-lazy aspect of the mod. Thanks, Two

    I hate cynical game design as much as you do Imp, but I don't think multi tier rewards are bad as long as it's not "pay to play". These crates don't seem to withhold any game play experience on Diversity whatsoever, unlike battlefront and other games, and it doesn't give players an advantage that they couldn't obtain from other means, so I'd be fine with it. Anyway, @GrowlingFall535, I doubt vote keys will be implemented because from what I've seen so far, the reward boxes will be obtained from using "mystery dust" which is pretty similar I guess. Also, I like all your suggestions about what the rewards should be except the ar time one. It kinda defeats the purpose of what ar time is all about. I know that its not going to give an unfair advantage or anything like that, but it does feel very satisfying to do /ar check and know that all the time there is time that you've actually invested into the server, and not just a number buffed up by voting. BTW: One thing I've just now noticed on here is the suggestion that once in a while, smaller, shorter supporter packages could appear in the loot boxes. I know that may sound a little unfair, but honestly, I think it would help Diversity meet their goal a lot. The reason I'm a permanent supporter today is because some guy gave me a supporter for free a long time ago, and after I got a taste of what it was like, I wanted more. Giving players a chance to feel what being a supporter is like for free would encourage them to buy supporter more often. Lot's of other companies do this. It's why so many games or sites give you a free 30 day trial to try out their product - you might not want to buy it right then, but after you've tasted it, you know its worth it. So, good job to whoever came up with that suggestion, I definitely think it will bring us closer to beating that monthly goal, which right now seems to be just out reach... (Of course, we would need to figure out how long these supporter samples should be. I suggest 5 days. Also this suggestion still has one flaw that I'm not sure how to handle: "What happens if someone who is already a supporter finds this in their loot box?")

    lol @ButtCheex214 for fuck's sake, get a new hobby mate! Getting your sad ass banned on Minecraft servers and then pointlessly arguing against the ban to be all edgy on YouTube isn't impressing anyone. Go do something productive with your life.

    I've never, really, been hungry. Sure, each one of us has felt we needed to eat at some time... but what if you were really hungry, and what if that was distracting you for half of your day, every day? Now imagine you're a child at school I believe that education is key to unlocking the best outcomes in life for our kids so I'm here raising awareness for Magic Breakfast whose mission is to see thousands of children start their day well with a healthy and nutritious breakfast. This weekend I shall be walking the complete coastal path around the Isle of Wight, just off the south coast of the UK, where I'll be covering 66 miles (106km) over two days. I'll let you all know how things are going during the weekend.

    Hi! My name is Alaura. I am 16 years old and live on the West coast (USA). I have been playing Minecraft for 5 years give or take but still suck lol! A little about me: I suffer from multiple chronic illnesses, some of which are disabling and cause me to use a wheelchair, cane, or crutches when I am out and about. I also have a service dog named Neslee who is a chocolate Labrador! I am SUPER shy but still love being apart of the MC community so I usually find myself a little island to settle down on. But I enjoy being apart of the community and helping out where I can on servers! I you want some company or are in need of hand let me know and I will be happy to help!!

    While I agree that using the Nether Roof should be allowed, I also think if this recommendation is not taken, and is denied, might we come to a mutual agreement? Here are some of my ideas. Such as: • Traveling along the Nether-Roof for the pure reason to travel long distances, would be strictly prohibited, and a more severe consequence could be implemented if caught doing so. ( This could be prevented with a WorldGuard region of a pre determined size above the roof (Expanding the region only as you see absolutely necessary) , and as soon as a player hits the regions boarder, they are teleported back to the Nethers spawn. • Here is an idea I quite like. Make the Nether roof, only accessible for player of a certain level. Either that be the same for the Vanilla Server, or the second Creative World. Maybe even have a server poll about which level seems the most appropriate! • Have the Nether roof only accessible via Supporters or Supporters+. Or, a mix both to ensure the rules will not be broken. ( With this staff would not need to supervise as closely, as the players that have access would be well known, and trusted.) Maybe have a server poll to help decide! • Per staff permission (Given permission via a Staff Member), and supervision, allow player(s) to build on top of the nether roof, strictly for the use of Gold Farms. I feel that this would be a huge benefit to the server, not only would it be freeing up valuable Buildworld land, it would take stress off the server as whole, and make the players experience on the server, a bit more lag free. Which, I think we can all agree upon, the less lag the better. Some limitation(s) could also be set in place, too. Such as: • Permit a pre-determined amount of nether portals, and size, capped at whichever percent is deemed acceptable. • Space restrictions: Players are only allowed to build within a pre-determined radius, running along either the X & Z axis, or the X, Y and Z axis. • A plot system setup nearly identical with Shops and Malls. (Some tweaking would have to be done to ensure plot permissions do not leak through to the main Nether level. • Last, but certainly not least! The area for gold farms would be using pre-generated chunks from previous players exploring the surrounding nether area. This way, we would not be loading anymore chunks than we really need to, hence saving on storage place. (Hey, penny pinching where it counts pays off in the long run! ) Including saving on storage space, we would also putting less of a load on the servers CPU while the server generates new chunks. I'm not saying every player that wants to build a farm is going to find un-explored chunks to build it in, but if offered the possibly to build on completely flat, with minor restrictions, I would easily take the Nether instead of scouting a good area, clearing it, fighting off mobs, etc. TL;DR, The possibilitys the Nether Roof yields for players to build upon is absolutely endless, and I could see this being yet another attractive feature of the server to bring more players in. Being allowed to build on the nether roof could completely revolutionize the way our players on Diversity show off their farm-building skills, and put their creativity to the test. A lot of players, like myself, enjoy building massive and crazy efficient farms, so whats a better place than the roof of the Nether? If allowed to build on the Nether Roof, I think it could change the history of Diversity as we know it, for the even even better. Thank you for taking the time for reading this post, I greatly hope my recommendation is taken into account and discussed among all members of Staff. Yours truly, Mike.

    Hi there. I'm Mike, or just a Rubik's cube. I joined diversity, what seems like a month ago maybe? Not exactly sure. I'm also a Rubik's cube. Alot of people fancy my head, and would love to add it to their collection. I don't mind this of course, but they are kept as rare as possible. Since it makes for such good decor, and, you can be that cool guy who says "Hey look! I solved a rubik's cube, are you jelly fishing yet?!" But no, in all seriousness, I'm Mike and i'm glad to meet you. I found Diversity through a friend, and I've been slowly settling my roots here. I'm a long-time type of player, and spend years on servers. The main thing that attracted me to Diversity, is the fact that it will never reset. (As long as the bills are paid and the players are generous." ) I'm quite a friendly and easy-going player. I only tolerate so much, of course. I don't usaully do "Introductions", but this time I thought why not. I've played the game since '09, and throughout the years I've had the honor to either run, or staff on servers. Of course, alot has changed in almost 10 years now, wow. It's seriously hard to believe this game is almost 10 years old, and yet, it's still here. and players are still playing. Going back on subject, i've been staff on servers, more often than I've ever been a "player". I did enjoy it, but sometimes it's nice to be a 'player'. again..Atleast temporarily in some instances. Knowing that Diversity will never reset sits happily in my heart and I'll be around till the death of Diversity, if that day ever comes. Some other facts about me, is I'm also a Plumber! I work too much and I just keep on working because, money! I'm currently about to do a 20k project, and our recent 8-plex I had been working on, burnt to the ground via arson, and insurance gave 300k to rebuild, and I'll be needing a good 60k chunk from that for the plumbing part, alone. I just want to skip Winter, plumbing in the cold = bad time < upset Mike. I'm always up for a chat though, and generally a fun person to talk to! if you ever need help with something, maybe one of the plugins example and there are no staff online currently, don't be afraid to PM me on discord or Chat. I won't bite, i'll just confuse you with all my colors.

    My warp request is for a PLACE/TOWN The X and Z co-ordinates for the place where I'd like the warp landing spot are X: 656 Y:60 Z:1327 (IN THE END) My build is IN PROGRESS I have read and understood the guideline & requirements thread: YES * With this application I confirm that my build is SAFE and no mobs can spawn there. It is 100% claimed by me, with subclaims for appropriate areas. I have spent time and effort making it look nice, and I have placed signs to guide and inform visitors. * I promise to not pester staff in-game or here on the forums about this application. Instead I will be patient and wait for replies, and answer any questions asked. If any changes to my build are requested, I will work with staff to make them happen. * If my application is rejected, I won't complain or whine. Instead I will go back to working on my build and improve it so that it can be approved in the future, when it meets the requirements. * If my application is approved, I won't rest on my laurels but will continue to uphold the standard of my build and maintain the location. If it is a town, I will assist with any concerns the citizens raise and evict inactive or banned players. I may expand as need be, and I will design my spot in the warp hub to match my build. Avalon has been a project of TPS_Platinum and I for over a year. We transformed the islands, then the end cities, to make Avalon as great as it is now. We give newer players opportunites to work with a community towards a bigger project. Many people (Too many for me to list) have helped us transform over 5 islands! ElaborateJade and AdventureNarwhal brought us animals from the overworld. We have many different biome dependent islands. Such as the Mooshroom biome that is finished, and the snow plains, which is not. We have a town hall, where we conduct meetings. In Avalon exists the Mighty Mount Orion. The mighty mountain was hollowed out to fit the Avalonian museum. There are also different islands for food gathering, and general housing. Overall Avalon is a mighty fine place for anyone to stay in. With great amenities and so forth. So I hope you will accept this warp and make it what it deserves to be!

    Insulting others (like calling them " douchebag" and "lowlife") is against the forum rules, @ButtCheex214. I'm sorry to say that you discredit yourself with behaving like this. If you want to be taken seriously, treat others with respect. And let me add just this: It is really easy to insult people while hiding behind a screen, mate. When you think about doing that again, and i don't mind which server is next on your list, please hold on for a second and remember that we all are real people with feelings. Hurting others is not fun. Period.

    Alright, you can have a second chance. I'm just making it super clear to you 'cause we get a lot of players who claim they "didn't know" etc. And the reason for them not knowing is always that they ignored all signs and didn't read the info on them. By cautioning you beforehand that excuse is eliminated

    Admittedly, the bridges are kind of an after thought since elytra's supposed to be the primary mode of transportation (we provide a free pair and fireworks to anyone who doesn't have them), however I do agree the infrastructure could be better. We are still expanding. Even with what's already been claimed, there are still about 2 or 3 big islands that haven't been worked on. The random pillars are from before we got there. I'll clean them up next time I get on. Thanks for the feedback.

    First, let's take a look at these marvellous comments you have left on the forum recently: Using sarcasm towards a staff member, real mature... which later led to you posting this: Lmao. Hey @Lucifer, do you mind changing your signature? Some punk thinks it's "offensive". I highly doubt she will change it because some banned kid took "offense" to it and demanded she change it, you didn't even say "please" And then there's this: Now that's just insulting - fuck you! Now, on to your "appeal". So, you respect your decision to disrespect the staff? You're an actual twat. Lol, we're not so weak that we get our feelings hurt by some kid being a douche on a Minecraft server. Try again. I mean, all of this behaviour alone is enough for me to give you a big fat DENY. But, let's step back in time (1 year, to be exact) and see why you were actually banned from Diversity: 3rd February, 2017 A new player called Terminator_T80 joins Diversity! His first messages: "i work for planet minecraft", "i review servers". Then, the console warns that he is moving incorrectly, to which he claims "i was tezting", "i mean testing". A few minutes go by, during this time he tries various commands that don't exist on the server. A few more minutes go by, he claims "lag" and then proceeds to speak in Spanish: "hola" "como estas" "mi amigos" "putos" "no hablo" "putos" "stupido" "putos" "putos" "putos" "putos" "putos" And before he could utter another word, the spam bot banned him for one day. A moderator jailed him and added the note "needs talk about respect and english only in chat". 4th March, 2017 Terminator_T80 waited a whole month until joining Diversity again, despite his ban being only for one day. Upon joining, he was immediately placed in jail. He tried many commands to get out but he was stuck there. He logged off. 5th March, 2017 Terminator_T80 joined again, still in jail. A moderator called @Hani came to his aid. "Hello", she says. No response. "Hello" she says again, "to msg me do /r", "i am a mod". He noticed she was flying around the jail, something a mod usually does when someone is jailed. He tells her "your a cheater" She replies "i am allowed /fly" To which he replies "gmc on a survival server is cheating" "let me out" At this point, Terminator_T80 has caught the attention of many other staff online, including myself. Hani then says "first i need to talk to you" He tells her "what do u want i didnt do anything" (but he did) Then he calls the staff "gmc hackers" and tried to type /fly but he was of course denied. Hani tells him "you were banned for disrespect and not talking in english on general chat" He says "so", "it says that i stole" Hani says "im just saying what you did to be in here" He demands "let me the fuck out" Hani replies "sorry not with that attitude" Hani's nickname at this time was "RespectTheHani", and he had just realised this So he then says "oh its respectthehani" "well let me tell you something" "i dont like people who demand respect" "so fuck u" I saw these messages, and that is when I banned him with the reason: "disrespecting staff, don't come back :)" Neat little story, huh? Needless to say, within one year, it seems that you still haven't changed. So no, I will not unban you. No other staff member will unban you. You will never be returning to Diversity because your attitude is disgusting and we do not like brats like you running around in our community. Have a nice life.

    - WARP REQUEST FORM - My warp request is for a PLACE. The X and Z co-ordinates for the place where I'd like the warp landing spot are (93443, 56845). My build is FINISHED. I have read and understood the guideline & requirements thread: YES. * With this application I confirm that my build is SAFE and no mobs can spawn there. It is 100% claimed by me, with subclaims for appropriate areas. I have spent time and effort making it look nice, and I have placed signs to guide and inform visitors. * I promise to not pester staff in-game or here on the forums about this application.

If it is a town, I will assist with any concerns the citizens raise and evict inactive or banned players. I may expand as need be, and I will design my spot in the warp hub to match my build. Over the past 5-6 weeks, I (AmosTripleSeven) have asked over one hundred unique people on the server to place a block on a build I call the "Diversity Monument". Each person's contribution was a block of their choice, and, on it, a sign on which they could write whatever they wanted. The result was a 9-block-tall pyramid structure containing every variety of block - from dirt to beacons, from shulker boxes to player head, even some blocks unobtainable in survival *coughadminscough*. I believe this monument merits a place warp. It symbolizes how we, as a community, are all about, firstly, diversity, and secondly, unity. Although I did kickstart this monument, I would never say that I built it - this was a collective effort of many people to make something beautiful (not unlike the server!). I've built a nice landing platform that leads to the monument through a path and a bridge. I can confirm that the monument and the surrounding land is well lit and free of mobs. Thank you for considering my application to give the Diversity Monument a place warp. I believe that this monument truly has something unique that is worth displaying. Sincerely, AmosTripleSeven

    Hi there, Here is my two cents about kits, with ranking up too, all bundled into one post. I'm also going to be covering a lot of other points too, so please read through my post thoroughly. I also want to say this right off the bat also, when Diversity's Staff is debating any major change, i.e the removal of Dynamap, or entrance of a new feature, let the server debate about it, too. Have a poll, either straw polls, or a simple Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down reaction on a post in Discord, under a channel #PossibleFeatures. (Read only for players, though.) In general, let the server have a bigger say than it does right now. This is MUCH needed in Diversity, and players enjoy being apart of the community in any way they can. Anyways, on with the post. As of now, ranking up is very boring. And I mean that in all seriousness. All we really get when we rank up, is one extra set home, and bonus claim blocks that differentiate with each level. So, I want to put this into perspective from a new players point of view. They're probably from a different server, where when they rank up, they (may) receive some money, claim blocks, and items..Etc. When a new player joins, and plays long enough to graduate from Level 1, onto level 2, they may be a bit discouraged, and disappointed. Now, some players don't really mind, and just like to play on here strictly for the community we here at Diversity have, along with how the Server itself is setup. (Non-Resetting) But for the players who look forward to leveling up, and work towards it, it can be very off putting. Trying to find new ideas for receiving items when leveling up, without an actual economy can seem fairly daunting. Don't get me wrong, it truly is, considering you're very limited on what you can, and cannot do/give. Truly, I mean this in a very positive way, in hopes to help pave a new future for Diversity. I've been keeping my eye on Diversity, while on, and while on a Minecraft break as a whole. And, in my opinion, Diversity is starting to slip downhill in some aspects, which is giving potential players new players, a reason to question if joining is worth their while. Respectively, we do have one feature that nearly nobody else in the Minecraft server world has. That's a Non Resetting, LGBTQ+, Survival Minecraft Server. Most non-resetting servers are strictly anarchy..Where rules do not apply, hacking is allowed, you get the idea. Our feature alone, attracts 85% of our players, because players like myself, enjoy building, knowing it will not be either randomly reset, or annually reset. I'm not sure what Diversity was like upon release in 2014, so I cannot speak on that times behalf. Whether Diversity was better, or worse, it's in the past and I won't know. I do know, however, we can use previous years to reflect on. Reflect on what we changed, and how players adapted, and if they agreed with new features, or the removal of features. (I tried accessing the old forums to do research, but to no avail.) Anyways, lets get to the main part of this post, and focus on Kit suggestions and Leveling up. I'll be moving from Kits, to leveling up, on to Supporter ranks. I feel like ranks 1-5 are more of the "Starter" ranks. (I forget what the actual kits yield, so my suggestions may actually be worse than what they already are. If anything, some of my suggestions can be added to the existing kits.) They're still fresh to the server, so some items that could be suggested as kits are: Kit Level [1] (Starter) Two stacks of food, Basic stone tools, golden shovel & stick, multicolored leather armor, and the book aiding players who are familiar with Grief Prevention. (Mostly un-changed) Kit Level [2] This kit can be the Brother of Kit Starter, but with a different name, and the removal of basic stone tools, with the replacement being an enchanted bow, with 2 stacks of arrows. Kit Level [3] With players reaching Level 3, I feel not alot of players use kits anymore. But when the feature is there, it's nice to have. Some items may include: A golden sword, 32 non-enchanted golden apples (not sure what their worth is, so take G apples with a grain of salt), a stack of Coal, and 64 torches. Kit Level [4] The same as Kit Level 3, but the removal of the Golden Sword, and G Apples. Their replacement could be Iron Armour, A clock and a compass. Kit Level [5] The same as 5. After level 5, I feel that should be the cut-off point for Kits in general. As I feel the players have been on long enough, that they're well established enough to no-longer need unnecessary kits.If you don't agree with me, please say so! As far as Leveling Up goes and receiving items, not including the ranks, I feel like players need to be rewarded better for their time spent on the server. Possible set a static amount of items per level-up, until you get past level 5-7. From that point on, players have been on our server for a minimum combined 48 hours, or a maximum of 144 hours. Some items may include: Food, Dye, Obsidian, a few diamonds, (ores in general) tools, or some items that are a favorite among players. At this point in time, I'm running out of steam, and running out of ideas to write out. But, my original words still hold true. Players need to be rewarded better for leveling up, so they have more the reason to play more, and work towards that next level! Last, but certainly not least, I think Supporter ranks need tweaking. I do agree that all the perks Supporter, and Supporter+ come with (Mainly the commands), should stay. As far as the other perks, need re-working. Personally being a Supporter+, I'm glad I'm able to support the server, but I just feel like I'm missing something. I can't put my finger on it. It's a true shame the Autosort plugin is no longer 1.13.2 compatible, but there is light. A plugin has taken it's spot, and changed how the original worked. See Link: ( https://www.spigotmc.org/resources/chestcleaner-sorting-plugin-api.40313/ ). I forget the other plugins that Supporters had, that no longer work, but that's alright. As far as ranking up goes, while being a Supporter, I feel the claim blocks you receive when you rank up, could be doubled. This is all I really see necessary in that aspect. When it comes to Supporter+, I think it would interesting to see a unique kit, only available monthly (How long Supporter ranks last), or twice a month. The items included would be given in a single shulkerbox, with very nice goodies inside. Yet another way to tell the players; Thank you for supporting Diversity. That's all I have to say for now, I apologize for the long post, but I felt it was necessary. If you have any criticism, or want to talk to me about other details, feel free to DM me on Discord. Mike.

    Sure, lets let everyone click a button and have all their builds appear automatically for them without them having to do any work. Sounds like a great way to play Minecraft. This is an insult to everyone who has spent hours and hours building massive structures in survival mode on our server.

    Hi Diversity! After browsing YouTube for some time. I decided to look up DiversitySMP, just to see what would pop up. Although there is an official channel with only one video. Diversity does not have too much on a presence on YT. I am not suggesting a revamp of the channel, because the staff already have enough on their plate. But I am recommending a trailer. This trailer would include hot spots around the server (not just SMP). Interviews of staff members, and more critical info. This trailer would allow the server to find more players than just relying on server websites. As some know, I have worked on machinimas before. And I would love to take the handle to create this trailer...and then send it to one of the admins to upload it on the channel. So staff, I will let you discuss this matter. If you have any questions, I will have answers. Thank you!

    My warp request is for a PLACE The X and Z co-ordinates for the place where I'd like the warp landing spot are -56148 / -79358 My build is FINISHED (Add-ons will occur) I have read and understood the guideline & requirements thread: YES * With this application I confirm that my build is SAFE and no mobs can spawn there. It is 100% claimed by me, with subclaims for appropriate areas. I have spent time and effort making it look nice, and I have placed signs to guide and inform visitors. * I promise to not pester staff in-game or here on the forums about this application. Instead I will be patient and wait for replies, and answer any questions asked. If any changes to my build are requested, I will work with staff to make them happen. * If my application is rejected, I won't complain or whine. Instead I will go back to working on my build and improve it so that it can be approved in the future, when it meets the requirements. * If my application is approved, I won't rest on my laurels but will continue to uphold the standard of my build and maintain the location. If it is a town, I will assist with any concerns the citizens raise and evict inactive or banned players. I may expand as need be, and I will design my spot in the warp hub to match my build. Welcome to Diversity Resort!! As some of you know, I have been working on this project for about 1.5 years now, and I am so excited to finally create a warp request for the park. DESCRIPTION Diversity Resort is an amusement park with many rides and attractions. I also plan on adding hotels/vacation homes to the area later on. This park is for all who enjoy original rides that were created in vanilla minecraft. It is truly an accomplishment. I also plan for the park to be decorated according the the holidays. (i.e. the park will be covered in cobwebs, pumpkins, etc for Halloween) RIDES The Flash, Dweller, Cave, WIRE, 180, Typhoon, Drop, Sky Dive, Hell (And more to come!) These are the main coasters, however there is a city walk area, multiple mini attractions, and even an arcade area! OFFICIAL YOUTUBE I have put a lot of work into this park, so I decided to go the extra mile and create a YouTube trailer for the park. This trailer is on the Official YouTube channel of Diversity Resort. Make sure to subscribe to stay updated on new rides and attractions (so I don't post on the forums about every new thing, I'll post on the channel). https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCDMd0NSTP6JCAT197nLvo8Q TRAILER

    You should want to visit somewhere that's not within your country I'm with Abi, I wanna go everywhere. Europe, Asia, America, Africa, Antarctica... at least I'm going to USA next month but that's only a small part of that part of the world. One day I'll be able to get up and go wherever I like.

    Thanks!! My favorite color is blue, any shade of blue! Favorite planet would be Saturn probably. Jupiter is pretty awesome! Thanks! I was interested by just pure luck and found the server interesting! I play a lot of Overwatch and Sims 4 but sometimes I play random games on Steam as well! Thank you! I'll gladly take any help I can get! I can't choose just one specific favorite but I enjoy AC/DC, Bon Jovi, Queen, and Aerosmith I'm open for just about any of them, though

    Sup, although I'm level 5 I just joined this forum haha. A little bit about me, I'm Abi, I'm from England. 20 years old currently in my last year of undergrad university studying Environmental Science. I hope to do a masters after, at the same uni and in the same subject. I'm supposed to be writing my dissertation right now but I joined this server instead. My hobbies include cross stitch, gardening, gaming obviously, stationery hoarding and journalling, basically, anything that doesn't involve getting too physical otherwise my joints dislocate and/or I faint lol! I have a cat called Morris. He's ginger. I don't know what else to put here so AMA! - Abiartemis/Abi

    Hello Diversity! Yes, I know it is currently July...but I am thinking ahead right now. During October, we don't have many events for Halloween (yes we still have some...but still not many. Especially events that take up the whole month). My suggestion is that throughout the whole month of October, Diversity creates a new area with plots (sort of like the shopping district). During this month, players will be able to sign up for a plot and build a haunted house. They can use redstone (not tnt) etc for their build. Plots will be locked on November 1st for viewing. Members of Diversity can "tour" other's builds and see how many amazing builders we have on the server. My idea for a voting system would not necessarily be a first, second, and third prize. I suggest that every plot have a hopper to a chest. Then other players can drop in diamonds or other valuables into that hopper. This gives almost everyone a prize for playing. Basically, if more people like your build...the more diamonds you will get. Comment below if you have any suggestions! Thanks!

    sorry for the late reply, i found this thread but now. i would like to add that i'm against removing kits, because it would heavily favor the players that reached certain levels early enough to profit from the respective kits. I realize that some high level players don't even use their kits anymore, but i still think it would be highly unfair.

    Hello everyone, I'm Camaryn and I've just joined this server today. I'm a 21 y/o college student aiming for a major in social work. I've had Minecraft since 2012 but never actually played on a server until now mainly because of shyness. So hopefully this goes well. In terms of hobbies, I read a truckload and play a lot of video games. Stuff like The Elder Scrolls, the Geneforge Saga, and Starbound. Building and decorating in games are my cup o' tea too. Outside of that, I enjoy cooking and hiking, and someday hope to combine the two to create the ultimate culinary delight. That's all I can think to say at the moment, so feel free to ask away.

    Thank you for sharing, @AdventureNarwhal! Ok, this is not really a poem but it's from a poet and I wanted to share it with you all: Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves - like locked rooms and like books that are written in a very foreign tongue … Live the questions now. And perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer. — Rainer Maria Rilke

    how about slightly over-leveled gear, stuff you can't normally create? like feather falling V, Smite VII, or Fortune IV? Unique enchants could be cool to, such as one that grants the effect Health Boost. Would need to be carefully balanced tho. Also Totems would be nice. Alternatively, shulkers filled with chests that are inturn filled a with random material could be interesting.
