Hey all

Haven't made a post in a while because I haven't really been up to much in terms of fixing things, so haven't needed to, so sorry about that:(

However, with the help of @Luck tonight we fixed the ban appeals and player reports forum. You can now view your own thread when it moves between the sections in the following forums:
  • Player reports.
  • Ban appeals.
For ban appeals, you cannot post your own thread. You must use the application and it will post the thread for you. We have also set the forum to be used an unlimited amount of times. Normally I would try and hide that, but it only takes 1 person to spam it to found out, so whatever. If you do decide to spam it with unnecessary information, you will be banned from the forums.

For both sections, you can now edit your threads and see staff replies to them. You can also reply to them if they're pending, however when they're in the accepted/declined section you cannot.

We have made...

One of our machines was suspended yesterday, and as a result, the SG instances running on that server (originally the even ones) were shut down. I've since moved several to the remaining primary SG box, and there should be enough instances for everybody. I expect that machine to be back online around the 28th.

tl;dr if you see lots of dead SG instances, don't panic

With the factions reset around the corner, we have a couple of community events planned to make an enjoyable end to this season.

Factions LMS War:
As requested by the community (https://vikkcraft.com/threads/18344/page-2), we will be hosting a Last Man Standing factions war. To briefly explain what will happen, everyone who wishes to take part will be teleported into an arena, and will fight until there is only one person remaining.

Some more details:
Date: 30/08 at 16:00 GMT
You must bring your own gear. We will not supply you with any armour, weapons, gapples, etc.
Once you have died, you will not be able to teleport back into the arena.
There will be no spectators, however we may record the fight.

SIGN UP: Just so we can get an idea of how many people are interested, please comment below with your username. You can write 1 post for multiple people if you...

Hey guys Benja here back with another SURVIVAL GAME VIDEO serious thread.

I've been a staff member on this server for a while now and I think I should leave. When I joined I enjoyed Minecraft a lot, but now it feels like a chore to log on and catch hackers, something that I never wanted to happen. I promised to myself that I would leave when I didn't find it enjoyable, and that day has come.

Bye guys!

Putting this at the top so people that don't read the whole post can see it
50% OFF SALE ON THE STORE TILL WEDNESDAY! GO GO GO!


This was something I said a year ago when writing a huge post about our history when we hit our 1 year anniversary. You know what that means? As of today, Vikkcraft has offically been open for two years.
Wow.
I'm sure other members of staff and even alot of you will agree with me when I say that this does not feel like two years at all. I can still clearly remember sitting at my PC at the end of July 2013, discussing with Vikk what we wanted to do with his server.

After the amount I wrote in these posts last year, I promised myself that I wouldn't write another novel about VC history but I still have the need to thank everyone that's made the past year what it's been.

To the community, the staff and the hackers who we hate so much, thank...

Chat formatting, colors, game prefixes, scoreboard formats, and so on at VikkCraft have always been a hodgepodge of styles. Indeed, even the capitalization of VikkCraft varies from game to game and from account to account. Starting today, I will be working on making the experience consistent across all the games, this stuff has annoyed me for quite a while.

First off, i'd like to thank everyone who signed up, played or just watched the stream. Support like this makes server events and tournaments possible, and hopefully more enjoyable with each one we do. I'd also like to congratulate JustSantii for taking first place, as well as megascizor11 and _Horizonn for taking second and third.

While it wasn't the smoothest experience possible, and may have taken a little longer than expected (alright, maybe a lot longer), it's given us something to go away and look at, and to improve on. I personally enjoyed it a lot, and would love to do more events and tournaments in the future. If you've got anything you'd like to see us do in the future, please let us know.

Thanks,

-Matt

Hey all!

Although the forums is not our 100% priority right now, we made some changes that people have been asking for.
  • Search bar now available.
  • Player reports are only viewable by staff, unless you have made the thread. (This is only a trial, and might change)
Thanks
Bucko:)
