  1. New Mods?!

    NEW MODERATORS? Yes, new Moderators. Over 6 months ago, we promoted a group of players to Helpers. All of them have brought something unique and beneficial to our Staff team, but some really shined. So, 6 months later, we are ready to announce that we are promoting @Loubee1000and @SteelyEyed to Moderators. They have both proven to be excellent assets to our team and we believe they will do great as Mods. Congratulations to you two. You deserve it! That's really all I have to say at the moment. Thanks, Bucky
  2. Favorite weird Vid

    I appreciate every Bad Lip Reading video.
  3. Museum Warp Request

    I really like the thought and effort you've put into this place. We are going to discuss what we think and get back to you as soon as possible.
  4. MONTHLY UPDATE: MAY 2017 - Birthday Edition! We are very excited to celebrate the third anniversary of Diversity (May 10th) Our server has grown and expanded exponentially over the years. Along with the growth of the server, came the growth of our amazing community. Of course, people come and go, but our community has always been a warm and inviting one. Diversity's staff team has grown and developed as well. I myself have been lucky enough to play and work along side an amazing group of people I never would have met without this place. Now enough with the sappy stuff, let's get on with this! BIRTHDAY EVENTS! Yes, in light of our third birthday, we will be hosting some fun events throughout the day of May 10th. Here's what the events team has got in store: Giant cake/hedge maze Cake Race! Stay tuned for more information about these events. You will not want to miss the chance to win the prizes we have in store. SOME SHOP CHANGES We are still in the design stages of what we actually plan on doing, but things are going to change when it comes to shops on the server. With the increase of new players and players level 5 and up, the shop warp has become plump full of shops. There are 142 plots in the shop warp, and they are all full! It can sometimes be hard to find your way through the shop warp, and it can also cause a crazy amount of lag for our players. So, what are we going to do about it? We are going to introduce shopping malls, which will be located in a few separate locations across the server. The plan is our higher level players will be able to build shops in a new, less crowded area where players can shop more easily. I am not going to go in depth, as I don't want to make any promises I cannot keep. Although, I will promise you will all hear about it when the time comes. BAN APPEALS In spite of players being permanently banned and returning to post a ban appeal, the staff team has concluded that we will not take any ban appeals from permanently banned players until 6 months after their first ban appeal. For example: If they are banned on March 1st they can come and appeal on March 15th, that's fine. But they may not appeal again in June, cause it hasn't been 6 months since their last appeal. Pro tip: Just don't get yourself banned, okay? DIVERSITY NEWS Whatevahhh and Stiles have worked to create the Diversity News. Quite a few people applied to take on roles to help with the newspaper. Here is your Diversity News Team: @Violet_6 Khanquebueno Pass2144 @DaeFrontinx @dragonfriend410 @ChaiseRocks Nickothebuilder BecLabradoodle Knightman SAYING GOODBYE, FOR NOW, TO SOME AMAZING PEOPLE @Ale @Tuff You two have served this server well and have proven yourselves worthy time and time again. We really hope you'll keep in touch and maybe one day return. Good luck with life. And thank you, -Staff
  5. Hello there, I don't even remember who you are or why you were banned, so if you could use the proper format like TwoDog showed you, I will be happy to talk.
  6. Bring back the Diversity News?

  8. April Monthly Update! EASTER EGG HUNT?! That's right! We will be holding another Easter egg hunt on DiversitySMP. Unlike last year's egg hunt, we have a brand new grand location for everyone to hunt for these eggs. The other staff and I have been working hard on and off for a couple of months to prepare for this big event. We will be running a few hunts over a certain time period so everyone will get their fair chance of gathering the most eggs. At the end of the event, participants will be able to exchange their eggs for a prize(s) depending on the amount of eggs each one has picked up. Keep your eyes open because we will be posting an official event announcement where you can learn about the event and what it all includes. (So please don't egg us on. ) Community Build Project It seems like it's been forever since we told you guys about this event. We promise it WILL happen, but after the Easter event. There are still a few things to work out at the event grounds, and hopefully by next month we will be able to start. Please hang in there and wait just a tad bit longer. Schematica Mod? We've been a bit lenient about this in the past, but after discussion among the staff, no mods that help/build for you are allowed on DiversitySMP. For those of you who don't know what this mod is, there are different features to it that help players build, such as holograms that show where to place blocks to build. It sort of acts as a blueprint. There is also a feature that places blocks for the player. This is why we cannot allow this mod. It prevents you from going AFK even when you aren't actually placing blocks. Therefor it's anti-AFKing. New Admin?! Next time you see @Impling make sure to congratulate him for becoming Admin. He started (and finished) work on April 1st. Not much to say this much, but it's something. Thanks for reading, and get eggcited for our big Easter event!! -Bucky and Staff

  10. Community Build Competition - FINAL VOTE

    We were hoping to get a few more responses, but seeing as there hasn't been any we'll be moving on soon. The next steps are to prepare the area ingame and organize groups and roles for everyone.
  11. Community Build Competition - FINAL VOTE

    Make sure to post style/theme ideas, such as fantasy, medieval, contemporary, etc!
  12. Monthly Update: March 2017

    HUGE congratulations to all the new Helpers!! You guys will do great (or at least you better)
  13. Community Build Competition - FINAL VOTE

    That's what we want YOU guys to decide.
  14. We apologize for the long wait, but we are back with another update on the community build project. Back in October, we announced we would be doing a community build project for everyone to take part in and we had you guys vote on what kind of town/city you'd like to create. The majority ruled to create a Venice style canal city. Mouse, Luci, and myself found an area on SMP and have been terraforming and changing some things here and there to get ready for the build. We are ready to start plotting out where the different buildings and houses will go, but first, we need you guys to vote on what style we want to build in, what buildings we want in the town, and what blocks we want to use. Please leave us any and all the suggestions and ideas you can think of below. We are mainly looking for what buildings you guys want in the town first. For example: -Marketplace -Bank -Hotel -Cathedral -Cafe Keep in mind the location borders on the ocean, so there will be a port and all the buildings/accessories that come with. We're also aiming for a tightly-packed city with as few unused areas as possible, so don't neglect the smaller buildings! This Medieval City is a good example of the space being utilized well: That city obviously has only one canal (ours will have many), but you get the general idea. Once we have a good list of ideas for buildings/structures, we can pinpoint places for the bigger and more grand ones, so that they are spread out and not all together in the center of town. Feel free to post pictures of buildings you'd like to emulate or that inspire you! That'll give us a better idea of how large you imagine the different buildings will be. This thread will be open for only a week, so get posting! -Bucky, Mouse, and Luci
  15. Plankville Warp Request

    Before discussing if your town is worthy of a warp, you'll need to meet all the town requirements we have set. Please make sure the WHOLE town is under one large claim owned by you. Then, make small subclaims (with /subdivideclaim) around every house.
