We're scrapping our "type /rules, follow the instructions" method of becoming a member and going back to our original, more successful Guest Zone idea. New members will spawn in a different world in which they are free to build and have some chests they can get a lot of blocks from. It's essentially the same as the Creative world, apart from the fact that the work they build will eventually get removed by admins.
Guests are to build something fancy in this world, once they've built something nice they can then either post a Builder Application, which will be reviewed by our staff and if good they will be approved and made a member. Alternatively, if an admin is online, instead of posting an application they can ask for an admin to check out their build and the admin will ask a few questions and if deemed worthy the Guest will be made a Member.
In unrelated news:
Axelmotley has the new role of community liaison. As community liaison Axelmotley will be in charge of setting up competitions and activities for you to take part in. These events will generally feature rewards of some kind.
In even more unrelated news:
We're introducing Junior Admins. Junior Admins are admins who have the ability to block check and read reports, but they are unable to kick, ban or mute people. They are able to issue warnings and for any bans they will need to contact higher authority. New admin candidates will first go through this Junior Admin program, so be sure to start applying for your chance to become a Junior Admin!
We hope you enjoy the update.
