@N7 said:I'm not overlooking that at all. People are being hacked and having money stolen.@l4wd0g: I meant credit card information. Whereas Microsoft users are having money stolen right now, all of the talk behind the Sony hack was all "Zomg hackers got my credit card!" "Whoa, if that's true you have a legitimate case here!" and you never hear from them again. Also impossible since the credit card information wasn't leaked. If it was, everyone would have seen charges, not just random people who forgot what day the Netflix bill was due.The thing you are overlooking though is that XBL hasn't been hacked. It's a phishing scam which Microsoft only can do so much about, whereas Sony did very little to protect it's customers.
Now that I think about it, how did we even get on this topic.
They are both very different occurrences.
Also impossible since the credit card information wasn't leaked. If it was, everyone would have seen charges, not just random people who forgot what day the Netflix bill was due.
You forgot to add "even though no information was leaked".
They weren't really hacked. I mean, yes and no. Someone hacked their way into their database, Sony saw that and then shut down the whole Network. They launched an investigation, FBI came in and nothing was heard since. I'd like to believe if a billion jillion people's private information was leaked onto the internet, we would have heard something like "YO these guys are FUCKED don't trust these fuckers. FUCK" from them.
It kind of happened to everyone after that though. Square Enix, I'm preeeeeetty sure Bethesda, Microsoft and then a bunch other indie sites were all hacked. If the "digital future" is going to be a thing, these guys really need to put some trust back into the use of credit cards.
Also, I am curious.
I don't want to bug anyone or annoy people, but I want to know just how far this "mostly, no mods" rule goes. FIRST, I KNOW. I GET IT. I UNDERSTAND. I'm mainly posting because I saw a mod that was totally bonkers and I tooootally want it in the server in which I play Minecraft exclusively. But I'll keep this from going into "ZOMG NODD ADD THIS YEAAAAAAH". Instead, I'm just wondering how far the rule goes.
I ask this because I've been looking around and have been seeing some really cool mods. Not even gameplay additions or game-changers, rather, cutesy-wootsy little things that adds just the right amount of omg awesome. Not too much, not too little. Just. Enough. In fact, it's so small that you would literally not notice that they were there enough to impact your playing of Minecraft. For instance, one such mod is an Armor Stand in which you can take armor you aren't using and apply it to a statue of either yourself, a zombie, Steve or someone else. Just that "Ohhh maaaaaaan" of having a use for something you, well, don't have a use for is striking. It's enigmatic. It's the future.
Anyway. What I'm getting at. The server has seemingly waned in popularity the past little while. Whenever I jump on, usually between 6 and midnight on up, there's usually no one on. Aside from the usual Cap, AJ or Nodderly. I haven't seen anyone. Could it be that, maybe people have found other things to do? Maybe they haven't moved on, but rather ventured out into another frontier for a while. I think so. Yes. Definitely. But what happens when they come back to "Oh, it's Minecraft"? When they come back to the same thing they've been playing for days, months, years.
I have a remedy for this. Something easy. I think that, maybe every month or time period we decide on later if possible, we group up, find a mod we've been eying for a while, make a case on it and call a vote. This way, not only will we be choosing only one mod at a time(To space it out and not have some sort of 900 mods per month craziness), we will be a community again.
But before I continue, ask yourself: What mods do I want? What mods are great enough to add a new level of interest in the server, while at the same time strengthening my love for Minecraft and Nodderly?
Well I have your answer! Yes! Yes we can!
The rundown: Once a week, month, year, decade, whatever. We will come together with a mod we like, make a case for it, why we want it, why it would be totally tits-in-the-wind. And after we do this, we vote. The vote is the most important part, as if we didn't vote, it would be totally random with no way of knowing which mod would get added, as the decision would fall on Nodderly's increasingly strong shoulders. It would be anarchy. Who would know. And it also helps make sure we get a smaller number of mods added, instead of everyone getting the mod they've brought to the table added to the server which would PROBABLY KILL US ALL.
The rules would be simple: We each find our go-to mod, which HAS TO BE CURRENTLY UP TO DATE WITH THE CURRENT MINECRAFT UPDATE, that in our honest opinion would be tits-in-the-wind on the server, plea for the survival of humanity, vote, live life to the fullest with your new mods.
I think this is a great way to add new life to the server. Even though I'm perfectly fine with Minecraft as it is, I cannot deny the new dimensions of fuuuuuuuun(JUST LOOK AT ALL THOSE FUCKING U's) and maybe spark some new life and give us something to go for.
That is, if this rule can be made flexible or abolished entirely, or strengthened with the force of a thousand suns.
Footnotes: I apparently just started using the phrase tits-in-the-wind, and I like Minecraft. But most importantly, I like you. :)
