Hello Blockdrop!

So today is the 1st November and as promised I have the new staff list. I would just like to talk about a few things first though.

This staff list is bigger than any recruitment we have done before, about 4X bigger. So, to help protect the players rights we have installed new software that logs all bans, kicks and mutes. I think if everything is logged (and staff know that they need to have proof before using a kick, mute or ban) then we can strongly protect players rights. As always, any player that is banned is free to request proof and to make an abuse report if they wish to. We take this very seriously.

All the bans that are logged can be found by clicking ‘Bans’ at the top of any page on the website. Here you can see that even in the week since it was installed, it has already logged over 1000 bans from watchdog. This shows just how good Watchdog is now and I’m so excited to see the mix of watchdog and all of these new staff. I think this will be an amazing opportunity for us to be one of the most cheat-free servers.

So, without waiting any longer, here is the staff list:

To all of the people who got picked id like to say congratulations. We will start training in 1 week on the 7th, as I think this will give everyone enough time to realise that they got picked and join the right Skype groups. I have added as many as I could on Skype but if you are picked but not added then please PM me on the forums and I will send you my Skype. Make sure to do this before the 7th.

To those who didn’t get picked, please don’t think of this as a ‘no’, its more of a ‘not right now’. We are now recruiting large numbers of staff at a time and you do not have to wait to apply, you can apply any time, so your chances now are better than ever!

As always. Thank you to everyone that got accepted, applied, or even anyone who is reading this post right now. Any time people choose to spend on Blockdrop, interacting with the community and helping strengthen a already amazing group of people is always welcome.

Thank you

Hello Blockdrop!

So, as part of the new crackdown on hackers (see the update below) we will be recruiting a lot of new staff.

I will start off with around 40 all in 1 go, then a few weeks later I will recruit more.

The 1st announcement of staff will be on November 1st so if you haven't already applied then please apply now in time for the 1st big announcement.

Good luck!

Thanks.

Hello Blockdrop!

Okay so, based on the voting results from the last post, it looks like a lot us want to clamp down on hackers and remove them. So this is what I will help to do.

Stage 1 is already complete, I have made all bans global. This mean that any bans, including Watchdog will ban from all servers, instead of just the server that the ban happened. This will stop people being banned on 1 game (like Factions) and then just going to hack in Skyblock instead.

The next step is to extend the Watchdog ban lengths. Improve watchdogs detection and recruit around 80 new staff to tackle all hackers.

We will also have a page on the forums for anyone to see who is banned, when and why.

We want it to be at a point where you can contact a staff at any point in the day and remove hackers instantly.

We will also be adding a new option on the server selector for a server that people can go to that staff will wait at, so you can easily find a staff member.

I am doing all of this because of the results from the last post. It looks like a lot of the community want this and I always say that Blockdrop is a community effort, so I will do what the most people want.

If anyone has anymore suggestions then please make a post about it and I will read it.

Thanks for reading, thanks for playing and thanks for being an active part in this community.
