Hello community! We had an admin meeting after a long time with no meetings, we apologise for that. Summer and vacations got in the way. We will now proceed to monthly meetings as usual - the results are as follows:
- ▬ S.W.A.T application for our Jail Team has been Accepted
- ▬ Makita's trial for the Jail Team has been Accepted
▬ Infinite's trial for the Jail Team has been Accepted
▬ Baby's's trial for the Jail Team has been Extended
▬ Hamoda's trial for the Runner Team has been Extended
▬ [email protected]''s trial for the Runner Team has been Accepted
▬ Nobody left
- ▬ Slink has been granted permban-tool for his excellent reporting history.
▬ Zero has been promoted to a 3 star member for great efforts and loyalty. Congrats!
▬ We have decided to give 3 star members access to the admin "games_menu" where you can start rocketman, fireman, snowman etc.
▬ We will be trying to make another rank-list for jailbreak that will be in addition to the current rank-list. This rank will be reset very 1-2 month and rewards will be given for various rank achievements, more on this when/if we get it to work properly.
▬ We have decided to be more generous when it comes to giving rewards and incentives to people who perform work for nD. Two ranks/tags have been created for members; nD* Mapper and nD* Coder, if you are interested in making maps for us you can submit your map to us and we will go through it to make sure it is up to par with our standards. If you map is approved and meet nd's standards you will get a reward of varying from 100k to 200k (obviously depending on the map, quality, scale and server. If your map is really unique we can go higher) + 1 month of VIP. Additionally, you will have permission to wear nD* Mapper in game - with a colored tag, as well as a colored tag/symbol on forums. Same goes for nD* Coder which most of you are aware of, Xalus is currently our only nD* Coder. Regulars will have special tags as well, more information soon.
▬ "We are looking into adding a new jbshop item, for VIP only. Blackout/powercut. This is under testing and will hopefully be added soon, depending on how the testing goes." This was mentioned last time, and is still under development, but has come to a halt due to summer/vacancies and will be resumed shortly.
▬ We have revised our moderation procedures after complaints from regulars that there is a big gap between how members/admins moderate. We will try to be more on the same page moving forward.
▬ "We are currently working on a list of weekly challenges for a few servers. We hope they will be up and running soon enough." This was mentioned last time, and is still under development, but has come to a halt due to summer/vacancies and will be resumed shortly.
▬ Remember to donate your nD cash to this ID: (STEAM_0:0:2). Once the ID reaches 500k happy-hour will be hosted.
▬ The "escape you die" command has been causing a lot of arguments. To clarify you are not allowed to annonce "escape you die" and then proceed to kill everyone who leaves their cell. Standard rules apply: if someone leave their cells they are to go directly to the line/cage (whichever is closest). If they fail to do so you can kill them for escaping (given they are detouring to an unreasonable extent).
▬ We have added a minor restriction to /lr games in an attempt to make it less time-consuming. The restrictions are as follows: Games such as; gun-toss, smoke-toss, longjump, and s4s are now limited to two games only. Meaning you can play e.g one gun-toss game and one knife game, or e.g two boxing games. You can still play the other LRs as many times as you want.
▬ There will be a major update on the strike system. We will implement a new type of strike for harassment cases. The communication strike, it consists of a chat ban and name lock. The player wil be able to play but his communication is restricted. The communication strike duration will last for the same duration as normal strikes for the first and second communication strike. The third communication strike is a normal strike(server ban).
This situation would happpen:
Communication Strike 1 >> Communication Strike 2 >> Normal Strike 1 (server-ban)
Then the process restarts:
Communication Strike 1 >> Communication Strike 2 >> Normal Strike 2 (server-ban)
Communication Strike 1 >> Communication Strike 2 >> Normal Strike 3 (server-ban / permanent)
The idea is to give enough time for a rule-breaker to learn, without setting him to a strike 3 too fast, while being able to play on the server and observe others acceptable behaviour.
We are aware that it will affect certain games on jailbreak that require spelling/typing - but that will be a part of the punishment. Being able to play whilst gagged is still better than not being able to play at all.
Keep in mind that there will be an adaptation period, and we'll try to ease into the new system as smooth as possible.
▬ It was a good meeting, a lot has been discussed. We're not going to release everything that got discussed before we have all facts straights. More updates to come.
▬ If there is anything you feel is missing comment below and we will try to update you as far as we can.
