  1. Awwww!! My heart has melted! Neslee is so adorable! Looks like Neslee loves the water! Maybe one day I'll get a cute pup, but until then I have my two kitties! Here's pictures of them Mama is the white one, she's a Dwarf kitty, and Sphinx is the tabby. He's very overweight lol.
  2. Hey there Alaura, It's nice to meet you! You sound like an amazing person, and I'm glad that you're apart of our community! Very adorable service dog name, I'd love to see a picture. I've seen you in game a lot, we should compare islands sometime! See you in game!
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Welcome to Diversity! I'm glad you joined the Diversity Family If you ever need help, feel free to find me in game, Discord, or ask someone in chat. Someones always willing to help! Happy trails!
  6. IGN: mike88898 Discord: 𝓜𝓲𝓴𝓮#7840 I can't wait!
  7. I think this would be a great community project. I'm all for it, but I want Main Street! Rubik's Cubes will prevail!
  8. 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.
