FRENCH THE LLAMA, WE FINALLY HAVE A FORUM!
Alright, now that that's out of the way...
Welcome, welcome, welcome to the brand new Nerdcrafteria Forums! This is the OFFICIAL forum for the website, and as you'll see, all of the administrators and moderators in-game are also on here. Make sure you tell them hello!
My name is Cory – I’m an Admin for Nerdfighteria, I have a lot experience with Bukkit Plugins, Forums, Coding and Linux/Windows. If you have any issues with the forums don’t hesitate to contact me via PM.
Now, as you know, this server is Nerdcrafteria - the Nerdfighter-centric server started by the famous vlogger Hank Green (along with a little help from friends) and it is managed by the head admin, Amsterdom, and his crack-team of staff (including myself).
Such a fantastic, AWESOME server certainly can't just rest and be happy with it's own existence though - we're going to make it even better! That's why we're setting up a new Plugin and Donation System where you, the nerd fighters, will have the opportunity to donate directly to the Foundation to Decrease Worldsuck (a foundation that countless numbers of you are undoubtedly familiar with) in exchange for various benefits, such as a special VIP rank, a whole host of privileges, and even another, special VIP-exclusive world all to yourselves! More details about that will be released very, very soon, so we'll keep you posted.
The server has been on for awhile now, and despite a lot of bumps and jumps as we move down the road, we're quickly progressing closer and closer to the stage of moving past Beta and into full server swing. We REALLY appreciate you guys hanging around and being so patient with us while we work out all of the kinks - obviously, losing all of your items on a near-daily basis, combined with constant downages, crashes, and changing plugins all combined make a horribly disorienting experience. You guys have been fantastic throughout the whole process, and we can't thank you enough for that - I daresay you definitely didn't forget to be awesome.
Obviously, there are a lot of things going on in Nerdcrafteria right now, what with new cities being built, expanded, and sold off, various worlds where many different play styles are appropriate, and a whole host of other things that will surely make this whole experience fun and entertaining for all. As a result of all of this chaos, we're going to be releasing a series of explanations and guides for you to read up on, to get a better grasp of what can and can't be done in each particular world of Nerdcrafteria, as well as some basic, overarching mechanics present throughout the entire game. We'll be going over things like the economy (which is one of those turbulent, changing things I was talking about earlier) and even how creative plots work, for example.
In addition, we want YOU, the awesome Nerdfighters, to bring to us all sorts of ideas, suggestions, and creative changes we can add into the server! We're looking for all sorts of things, to make the experience more fun to you - cool plugins, some changes to current plugins, or even just constructive, useful criticism is incredibly helpful. We even made a special forum for you guys just so you could go and place any suggestions you wanted on there, with a special subthread for plugins specifically. That can be found right here.
Above all, we really appreciate all of the presence and support you guys have given us through this first week or two - you've made our jobs a whole lot easier, because of your politeness and accomodating natures. I swear, I've never received so many compliments for the work I've done on any other server! It's simply fantastic. Keep posted on the forums for more announcements about what's going on and what's being updated, because we'll be making a lot of news posts in the next few weeks to tell you about all the stuff that we're working on, so that you guys know what's what.
Once again, you guys are awesome, and we really appreciate your support.
