I just wanted to check in with a rather big change to our ban and mute policy.
Permanent bans and mutes have been reduced to temporary punishments for all offenses, except in cases of extremely severe violations such as DDoS threats and doxing.
Long bans range from 30 day to 60 and 90 day bans. Mutes can be as long as 30 days. Since most bans and mutes will no longer be permanent, we will now allow appeals for temporary punishments.
The anti-cheat will now issue 90 day bans against detected cheaters. These bans can be reduced (or lifted) through honest appeals. Lying will get you nowhere.
At the time of writing this, 4567 bans older than 90 days and 1100 mutes older than 30 days have been lifted. Old punishments will be actively purged on a daily basis.
Lastly, in order to make staff's job easier when determining the appropriate punishment for a violation, we will be wiping past offenses from peoples' ban and mute history at the start of every new map. We...
Time to try something new! Many of you guys will have played this gamemode before elsewhere, but why not have the same event on Minelink. For those unaware, Skywars involves spawning on an island with a set of chests and there is loot scattered around the map - last surviving wins. Once again teaming will not be allowed, and those caught teaming will be removed.

No no, not that time of the month. It's time to reward the top voters for March. However, this will be the last time we reward top 3 voters with Buycraft coupons. In the near future we will be granting a lifetime supply of creeper eggs to the top 3 voters, yes you heard that right. Without further ado, here are the top voters for the month:
As a thank you to all those who voted during the month of March, we will be rewarding every one of the top 10 voters with a Buycraft coupon.
The top 3 voters will receive the following Buycraft coupons:

Sorry for the late notice but we're back with another event... It was highly requested that we hosted another LMS but our smaller sister server is hosting one so that would be pointless. Like the LMS, all players will be invis however the Admins will have wool on their heads as seen here. Whoever lands the finishing hit on the Admins will win a prize, however they will be beefed up so don't expect them to fall so easily, you also only get 1 life.
Where: It will take place in an arena that you will be able to warp to (/warp kta)
