Banned from Minecraft Something Super Awesome Server

For the last couple of days I’ve been playing on a new minecraft server I found called “Something Super Awesome”, I’ve really been enjoying this server, and was ready to donate near enough straight away, however I noticed you had to wait 1 week or be recommended before you could donate any money, fair enough I thought, I shall wait, I didn’t want to donate for the benefits so had no rush, I just wanted to show my appreciation with a donation, just how donations should be thought as.

Today I spent a crazy amount of hours in the game. First I constructed my house on top of a hill, a little out of the way of everyone else, and left signs welcoming everyone, after constructing my house and building some hill top tunnels to get to it quicker. Then I decided to start mining various tunnels underground looking for diamonds and other such blocks & items, I decided to follow the borders of the the maps spawn point, in the hope of meeting new people, and as hopped I met quite a few people along the way and everyone seemed very nice.

While continuing my mining I came acrosss quite a lot of different types of blocks and items and even found a dungeon (mob spawner with chests), I then came across someones tunnels they had made and connected them to mine, I went to explore theirs and ended up in someones hidden house with lots and lots of hidden items (very rare to not rare at all), of course I decided to leave them all, and left a sign letting the person known that it was a nice hiding place and I had not took  anything and which way my place was if they would like to visit, at the end of their tunnel i left another sign pointing in the right direction, my hope was to make a minecraft friendship!

I carried on my mining and hours latter ended up back at place to find that someone had build a house in the sky and connected it up to mine, I thought sky bridges were not aloud so I left a sign saying welcome and who I am and who are they? once again to try and make friends. From here I went for a wander and hoped my tunnels would be ok with the admins, I know the rules said not to use tunnels or something as driveways. Can’t remember the exact phrase now.

When I came back I decided to go back down to my tunnels and found someone saying in the chat that OMG someone had put cobblestone down this far, I thought I bet that’s mine as I could see their name on the map in the distance, I run down and found that indeed it was my cobblestone I joked saying “oi where you of too” he said he thought it was a dungeon, I said hi back to him and then went back down and connected up the double stair pathway he had build to my single pathway and ensured my sign was in place as to not confuse people.

After this I decided what to do next, and BOOM i was kicked and banned from the server!

I was very confused so I immediately posted a polite message on their forums asking why I had been banned, I even signed it Kind Regards. However an hour or so latter 10 views and no reply. Then BOOM i was banned from the forum and my post deleted. Unfortunately I do not have a copy of the message and google or any other search engine has not cached it.

Now don’t get me wrong if I’ve done something wrong then fair enough ban then they can ban me if they wish, it’s their minecarft world server after all, and I know one of the signs and the spawn area said they don’t care if you are banned or not or something like that, but  at least have the decency to tell me why you have banned me, especially if I have asked, you don’t have any rules on the forums at all and no contact info not even a WHOIS gave me any info so that’s why I posted there.

Anyhow if any of the admins are reading this and I hope you are – please could you tell me honestly what I did wrong – without trying to pin something else on me with what I’ve told you already!

It’s a shame you banned me – I really did want to give that donation – and further more and I’m not just saying this, if after a while I could trust your server and the people running it I was going to ask yourselves if you would like Hosting + Invision Power Board as I have a Invision Power Board Perpetual License (lifetime license) that I haven’t used in ages since the last forums I ran it on and have been meaning for sometime to put it to good use.

Maybe I should just run my own deticated server…. *Rant Over*

For anyone else reading this, here’s there information:

LOL I’m banned too. I’m pretty sure it’s because logging in is against the rules. Oh well, it’s not like there isn’t a billion other servers out there with mods that aren’t dicks.

Jonieye February 15, 2011 at 8:37 pm

@ angrytraffic
Darn, our awesome tree of awesome would be gone :O

angrytraffic February 16, 2011 at 3:15 am

They can have that tree. That server blows anyway.

SSA ADMIN February 16, 2011 at 3:57 am

Pillars to the sky with trees on them don’t count as “awesome” they count as pillars into the sky, which if you had read the rules, you would know aren’t allowed.

Jonieye February 17, 2011 at 8:11 am

It still was an awesome tree. Also it wasn’t a pillar to the sky with a tree on it, it was a tree with trees on it, of which I only placed the first tree as a decoration.

dude545 February 20, 2011 at 12:11 am

I’m banned for some reason. I’ve been playing for a little bit, and have a house and stuff, then one time I went on, someone said i took their house , and I was banned. Please help!

GaleGuardian February 20, 2011 at 8:43 am

So is this a good server?
and is this new?
and is there mobs and night>
and is there mods and stuff…
and then when i asked
“are there mobs and night?”
and one of the mods said no there is not night but there is mobs.
i said oh ok
and then i said darn
and then i said oh well
bye then
and then i waited a bit, thinking hmm maybe i should stay. I might be able to do with just day time…
BUT THEN BAM!!!!!!! a litle after i said darn and bye
I WAS BANNED!!! by some dark something
im done with that stupid server…

SSA ADMIN February 20, 2011 at 9:02 am

” it was a tree with trees on it”


Maybe if you read these you wouldn’t look like such a moron right now. 12th bullet point.

Rubdoff February 23, 2011 at 5:09 am


Kudos to rubdoff for failing to do anything. I concur. Retaliation for letting you play on our server? This is hardware owned and operated by us. We expect people to follow rules, if you don’t like the rules than don’t play on our server. But don’t get all pissed off when you get banned, get over it and find a new server. I fail to see how people justify committing a criminal offense (ddos IS illegal folks) because they got banned from a single game server. But hey, it’s cool.

well We’ll have to come back and do it again then, see ya soon BloodyCunt.

Jonieye March 7, 2011 at 10:55 am

@SSA Admin I never said trees on trees wasn’t against the rules, I was just clarifying what it was. I don’t appreciate that you just resorted to calling me a moron. I havn’t said anything negative against you as a person and it just shows how petty you really are to attack me like that.
Also as you would know if you checked your precious block placement logs, you would see I only placed the bottom tree as a decoration, if I am to be punished for watching someone else build trees on trees then that is a bit far.

Me March 26, 2011 at 2:36 pm

and another thing, at spawn there is 8 WALLS of rules.8 god damn walls, you really expect everyone to remember 8 WALLS OF RULES f’in ridiculus

megabuilder March 27, 2011 at 12:25 pm

i know all about those things its because the admins dosent have a life/a hacker have hacked an admin user/the admin wanted lulz

megabuilder March 27, 2011 at 12:34 pm

wtf i was banned becuase my clone did destory paintings?

alan April 2, 2011 at 12:07 pm

Yeh! i agree, i know how you feel. So freaking annoyed. My admin op everyone except for me and my friend. When we both finally have a dream house, they fucking blew it with TNT!! I am so pissed

soad470ify April 10, 2011 at 4:05 am

I was banned from this server for building a tree house. Honestly I didn’t see anything wrong with it, it was actually a pretty good treehouse til one of the dick admins burned it down along with the tree. No treehouses? The people on that servers are just a bunch of dicks, minecraft is supposed to be a FUN game.

anotherdude April 18, 2011 at 3:54 pm

i have played minecraft for a year now, almost exclusivly multiplayer, i have played on hundreds of servers, literaly, ranging from no rules all out pvp and grief allowed servers. to server that dont allow grief, tnt, lava, fire, mobs, night, etc,
servers with all kinds of bukkit plugins for antigrief and bigbrother mods, i could go on and on, i have been moderator for many of these servers as well,

out of all of that i can very honestly say this SSA server is the worst damn server i have ever seen, with the most dickhead admin i have ever seen, with the most outragous ban practice i have ever seen,

SSA admin, your a goddamn ridiculous worthless peice of shit scumbag with no life whatsoever. and btw, i have not been banned from your server, i played on there for a few weeks and witnessed how you handle yourself on there, so i post this to simply express thats how i see it.

now youll be wondering what my minecraft username is so u can ban me, lol. good luck, even if u figure it out i have 10 accounts and can change my ip with the press of a key.

your a dumbfuck douchbag with no comprehension of morals or decency, i think you must have some serious mental faults to be the way you are, you are either developmentaly disabled (retarded) autistic, aspergers, or god knows what,

seriously you need help,

it is very easy to be the dick you are, kindness is a challenge, you have shown you lack the ability or will to even attempt it. if you were a real man you would be kind, clearly you are not, at all.

i equate you to the kind of person who beats his wife and children to make himself feel bigger, that is how you come accross to me and many others, if you had one give a shit for your own soul then this should bother you, but im sure you dont even care. which is why i can honestly say,

you are going to hell

megabuilder April 26, 2011 at 9:29 pm

This is to SSA Admin. I was playing on this server about a year ago. I had a 2 story house and me and my friend were making a tunnel to our houses. Ther was nothing against this in the rules. I dug into someones mine so I covered it back up. I then digged more and we almost connected our houses when I was banned. I didn’t even do anything wrong.

lol quite the interesting story, these games can get so addicting and can turn around and bite you in the butt in the end lol. all the more fun ^^

nicko211 July 11, 2011 at 2:00 pm

LOL. This is funny because that exact same thing happened to me on a different server. I started on this server called Dawn of Nobility. I made a few friends, was friendly to everyone and ended up forming a mercenary guild with some other guy and building a massive mercenary stronghold. on my third day I tried to log on but it said that i was banned. I was polite to everyone I talked and to can not think of any reason that I would be banned. I am writing this to any kind soul out there. Please, log on to this server and tell me what has become of my mercenary castle. Leave the news in a comment on this forum please. The IP address is 69.197.189:25565 and my minecraft name is nicko211

megabuilder July 28, 2011 at 10:29 pm

megabuilder July 28, 2011 at 10:43 pm

on psp short comment sorry. extra milk for him to make food and drinks (it was realistic so you could thirst and hunger) when i was at my work in the server i might was so lucky that i got some food and drinks in case i got hungry or thirsty but i paid some times then the city got attacked by bandits meaning everyone that could fight must fight to protect the village luckyli we survived, me and my friend was ranked to admins then we took a walk then we got to a cliff with a perfect view i looked at it

megabuilder July 28, 2011 at 10:48 pm

last part. (here it comes) then he stabed me with an arrow and punched me with a sword so i felt down and died and then he banned me. the server had this range thing so that you could only see infomation bans chats and other stuff at a sertain range so no one found out
