PRRRROMOTION? WHAT FOR? by Lorf - 01/19/11 @ 03:09 AM CET

Applications are now closed.

Mod Rules Established by N3X15 - 01/18/11 @ 12:12 AM CET

We've made a huge overhaul to our moderator and administrator rules and regulations. Namely, we created some where none existed before.
The changes you'll notice immediately are:

  • 4chan style posts are allowed in /b/, but not elsewhere. This should make it easier for new users to adapt to 7chan without getting banned.
  • We now take a warn-then-ban approach, meaning the first offense receives a 1-day ban as a warning, and then bans afterwards become full-length. Again, this is to make assimilation of new users easier.
  • Modposts will be less frequent.
  • Many ban types and durations have also been standardized, and ban reasons should be a little more descriptive (so it's easier to process appeals, and so you know what you did wrong).

Many other internal regulations are also present, such as establishing a more defined chain of command, and getting Steve (our current codemonkey) to maintain a presence on IRC until we can find a decent bugtracker for Kusaba issues.
These changes have been brought on by a realization that our previous, chaotic method of moderation was not working, and that to continue expanding in a stable, efficient way, we had to lay down some rules.
Right now, the transition is a little rocky, with a few moderators handing in their guns and badges, and we're still bickering over a few minor details, but in the long run, this should make 7chan better than ever.

HOUSECLEANING by N3X15 - 01/12/11 @ 07:27 AM CET

We just finished seriously reorganizing the shit out of the boards to make everything less of a clusterfuck. Several boards have been deleted, others have been combined with a a similar board etc. As shit changes, we'll leave a note here.

  • /mus/ was combined with /me/.
  • /zom/ has been combined with /x/.
  • /futa/ has been combined with /d/.
  • /nsfwwp/ combined with /wp/. /wp/ is now General (NSFW stuff allowed).
  • /toys/ = lolgone
  • /7tr/ is gone, since they have a forum and no one moderated it.
  • /pr/ joined /halp/.
  • /n/ was removed, use /h/, /d/, or /fur/ depending on furriness/fucked-up-shit.
  • /pco/ was combined with /co/. /co/ is now General (NSFW stuff allowed).
  • Many test boards were removed.

Update @ 12:13AM: And we're done. Content on the boards removed is gone since the merging tools are fucked, sorry. We realize this isn't popular (judging from the dozens of whiny threads popping up), but it makes our jobs easier and promotes more activity over a smaller number of boards rather than many.
In the long run, this is better for 7chan.

FUCKING MINECRAFT SHIT by N3X15 - 01/05/11 @ 05:32 AM CET

All further Minecraft server shit will be here so that it no longer shits up our front page.
In other news, Steve is a faggot.

Finished: Minecraft server switch by Teffen - 11/09/10 @ 09:03 PM CET

Nirvana has been successfully switched over to VPS. The switch offers faster load times, more player slots and fixes to several connection issues.
Additionally, the server software will be updated on 11/10/10
"General fixes:
* players and mobs in lava or fire no longer spam sound effects
* getting hit with a higher damage while recovering from a smaller one now works as intended
* lava flows further in the Nether
* zombie pigs eventually forgives
* added support for custom texture packs
* fixed duplicate buttons when resizing screens
* zombie pigs and ghasts no longer get hurt by fire or lava
* fixed volume sliders now saving properly

Multiplayer fixes:
* hellworld=true no longer overwrites old save chunks. Player positions will still break if you switch it on a running server, though
* boats are now visible to other players
* minecarts move nicer
* fishing kinda sorta works, but needs more work
* sheep and cows look like sheep and cows now
* buckets work now
* fixed stairs being really difficult to destroy
* increased the timeout before “Took too long to log in”
* made it possible to ride carts and boats (pigs should work too..)"
