    Hi, sorry for the delay in giving you a response. The staff team have decided to give you another chance - please don't ruin it. Welcome back.
  2. Helper Applications are open

    When will the new staff be announced? This question often pops up. Usually what happens is we wait until the close date (Nov 19) before we begin making any decisions. After applications close, staff will each decide on who they think should be our next lot of Helpers. This process can take a while, days, weeks, it depends how proactive everyone is about it all. Once a decent amount of staff have made their decision, we compare all the staff results and see who makes it out on top, from there we make informed decisions on who would be best for the role and we also decide how many new staff members we will recruit. Again, this process can take a while due to most of us being in different time zones. We try our best to make a choice as quickly as possible, but we also want to make sure we're making the right choice . Please try not to repeatedly ask us when the Helpers will be chosen, it can make you come across as pushy and may possibly affect your application.
  3. Helper Applications are open

    Hey everyone, been a while! Diversity has been getting a little quiet lately. We're aware of this and have some plans to help get things back in order. A few staff members have resigned in the last few months, so we're looking to expand our team once again. As of today, we are now accepting new Helper applications. What is a Helper? We don't often talk about what "Helpers" do on Diversity and I'd like to explain their role. Helpers are our first line of support for all players. They have a few basic tools at hand to help with many situations, like checking logs to see who has taken something out of a chest, or temporarily removing a troublesome player from the server. Helpers not only help the players, they help the Moderators and Admins as well. By taking care of certain tasks, the Helpers allow the higher levelled staff to do their jobs easier. What is required of a Helper? It's not just a fancy green tag next to your name, as a helper you will be required to: Encourage good behaviour in game and follow all the rules - lead by example. Be the first line of response to players needing assistance in chat. Perform routine checks of our various public farms, communicating with other staff as you do so. Use the staff communication platform Slack to notify other staff of certain events online. Take part in regular monthly staff meetings on Slack. Help the moderators/admins as needed. We tend to be quite strict with staff responsibilities, so if we find you are not pulling your weight, demotion is possible. If you think you're up to the tasks involved, please apply. Who can apply for Helper? We encourage everyone to apply, however we can't accept applications from all of you. Please be aware of the following: You must be at least 13 years old. We use tools such as Google Drive and Slack which restrict usage to people over the age of 13. Having multiple warnings, kicks or bans can negatively affect your application. If you've had a history of breaking our rules then you're unlikely to make it as a Helper. If you're unsure, apply anyway. There is no SMP level requirement but having more time played on Diversity will certainly give you an advantage over others. Please don't apply if your only reasoning for being a Helper is that it's "cool". We want people who genuinely want to help the players and staff, and to help the network evolve. If you've read and understood the above and still want to give a shot at becoming a Helper - apply now. Applications close Sunday 19th November. But don't leave quite yet! We are also looking to better our Vanilla server and build up a dedicated player base. In order to do that, we will need to take on a few players who will specifically look over and moderate the Vanilla server. What is a Vanilla Mod? The Vanilla Mod position is a new role to Diversity. We've decided to create it to give the Vanilla server some love that it deserves. Vanilla Mods will help run the server and be in charge of organizing community events, design a set of rules, and moderate the server. These Moderators will be in charge of checking logs and banning players when issues arise on the server. They will be able to fly and use creative mode, although this should be used at the bare minimum as the whole idea for a vanilla server is to keep it vanilla. They will not have staff powers on the SMP server, but will have access to tools we all use such as Slack and our Google Drive. If they need help or have any questions, the admins will be able to help there too. The requirements to become a Vanilla Moderator are the same as those to become a Helper on SMP. If you have any further questions or concerns, please ask them. This is a brand new role and we are still working out the kinks. Now if you've read and understood the following and are interested in becoming a Vanilla Mod, click here to apply - apply now. Applications close Sunday 19th November.
  4. Update: Server is back online

    Diversity is back online
  5. Update: Server is back online

    UPDATE: The server is back online. Hi everyone. Unfortunately the server that hosts our Minecraft servers has unexpectedly gone down. We've submitted a support ticket with our hosting provider OVH to try and fix this. Apologies to everyone affected. I will update this post when it comes back online.
  6. I don't know what to do...

    This is no longer something we do. Though I believe Tournite has been told otherwise by staff so we will make an exception.
  7. (Another) PC build help request?

    It's strange the site doesn't show these details. Clearly meant for people who don't know any better lol.
  8. (Another) PC build help request?

    Same list that @OffendedChair shared but with a 120GB SSD and Windows 10 added: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/nrHFD8 And that's still with no case. It seems like you might be better off getting that pre-built after all... which should never be the case, lol. Mind linking us to the one you're wanting to buy?
  9. Arena help.

    Can either of you open a ticket at the arena and someone will come and take a look.
  10. Anarchy Server Ideas!

    I feel like an anarchy server would need a decent sized player base, and our current PVP servers are struggling to have much activity as it is. Interesting to see what others think, though.
  11. Anarchy Server Ideas!

    Moved this to the Suggestions forum. Personally, I am against the idea of an "anarchy" or PVP type server. People join Diversity for a friendly survival community and to get away from these sorts of servers. If you want to play anarchy, perhaps you need to find another server. Just my opinion though.

  13. Forum Update

  14. Forum Update

    Nope. Not another Monthly Update® If you're reading this now, you've probably noticed the forum looks a bit... different. I have just updated the forum software to the latest version and it's brought along many new features with it. I'm not going to list all the updates, 'cause there are a lot, so here is a link to the blog post by InvisionPower explaining it. Something about clubs and reactions... ❤👎😂🎀 Unfortunately this means the theme I customised for the forum once upon a time doesn't look too great. Fortunately you can switch to the default theme which looks to be much better. To do this, head to the bottom of any forum page and choose the "Default" theme: You'll lose our fancy logo in the top left corner but at least you'll have an easier time looking at the forum. I will be working on designing a forum theme that better matches our website. If you're wondering about our monthly updates, we'll talk about that soon. EDIT: I've made a quick start on an updated theme for the forum, it's still in development but feel free to use it if you like. Feedback appreciated.

    We'll hold you to that
