The Rumor Mill MC

July 14, 2014 in Server News by O157_H7

Word on the street is the server is resetting. Well, if it is, I haven’t been told. However, many of you are aware of the big scary EULA fiasco. So, what I can say, is “changes are coming”. Anything more, and people would be sent to kill me. We are doing everything we can to keep everything we can, I promise you that. I, nor anyone who might be aware, can go spilling the details, but the server is essentially getting an upgrade. From one day to the next, plans change, so there’s no sense in detailing it now. We’ll let you know when we know. Stay tuned!

Expanded Rules!

June 15, 2014 in Server News by O157_H7

By popular demand and necessity, we finally have a published list of expanded rules. These rules, while existing for some time, have merely been spoken amongst the mods. This is everything I could think of, and things will be added as needed. This list is not exhaustive, and as it warns, it does not guarantee you safety from some future infraction not listed. You can still get in trouble, and no you aren’t a lawyer. So bear that in mind. As always, staff will remain objective and fair. So, without further ado, here are your rules!

Click me to read them!

Recent “update” Notice

June 9, 2014 in Server News by O157_H7

Dearest firefly users, this evening we attempted to address the recent lag issues. While it would appear we have improved the situation thus far, there were unforeseen consequences that Dave was unable to revert. Because of this, your player inventories and enderchests are likely reset. You may spawn in the original quiz area, or at wild spawn. In any case, there is a special sign at the quiz and wild spawn that will give you firefly points as a consolation. We are unable to replace lost items due to being unable to track them (you could just make it up and we wouldn’t be the wiser). We are terribly sorry for any loss. Hopefully this will resolve any further issues and make the server more stable, ultimately leading to more enjoyable gameplay.

Thank you for your patience and continued loyalty.

Beach House BuildOff

June 1, 2014 in Server News by GSGO101

 

 dIerSa9

A HUGE thank you to G_R_A_H_A_M for building this beautiful masterpiece!

Welcome to Fireflymc’s new chain of BuildOffs! We had some of these contests and it turned out really well, so we have decided to do them monthly!

 

What is a BuildOff?

A BuildOff is a contest where participants have a plot to build on with a certain theme for that contest. The participants try to build the best build they can within a certain deadline. After the deadline, then the builders are judged.

 

How exactly are the plots being judged?

There is a judging panel which consists of three people. The judging panel will not be the same people everytime. The judges write down on notepad or something from their opinion of first place to last. Then judges PM their results to coordinator (GSGO101) on the Fireflymc’s forum. Coordinator then writes down all of the judges scores with a number beside it. The numbers are then added up total for each entree. The entree with the highest number is the first place winner. The entree with the second highest number would be second place winner and so on.

 

How will someone be eligible to judge a contest?

A judge needs to be active, has a clean record, and someone who is relatively non-biased. Judges may not enter the contest in which they are judging. If you are interested in becoming a judge please contact GSGO101 via the website forum. Firefly Staff has the right to veto anyone for being a judge if deemed necessary.

 

What is the theme for this BuildOff?

The theme for this June is to build a beach house!

 

How long do we have to complete the beach house?

This contest will run from June 1st through June 27th. The last three days for June will be used for judging results, handling prizes, and preparing for the next month’s contest.

 

How does someone get a plot for the contest?

Please contact any of our lovely SMods or if none are online try for an admin. Your first go to people to get a plot are SMods though. If one is not online mail them through in game mail by typing “/mail send [username] I would like a plot for the beach house BuildOff please!”.

 

Will the plot be a survival or creative mode?

Creative Mode

 

Does it cost money to get a plot to enter the contest?

Nope!

 

Prizes

1st- 50 Firefly Points

2nd-40 Firefly Points

3rd-30 Firefly Points

 

If you have anymore questions please contact GSGO101 on the forum through PM.
