Hello I am Queenpoptarts and I created this so people could come up with ideas of how we can get each and every person to follow all the rules because rules are important in our family friendly sever.Now I would like people to come up with ways to help people remember the rules like a poem or a really cool statement!So stop reading and get on typing.
I have an exciting competition for all you Minecraft players on YAMS!
In our 2011-2012 world we had YAMS spelled out on the main spawn station.
In our current 2012-2015 world we have YAMS spelled out on the side of the shopping centre.
As well as down below in spawn tower station.
But for our new world, its time to rise high and fly the YAMS lettering high with pride!
Here's some ideas on how you could have YAMS spelled out in the air:
Have the word YAMS down the side of a plane.
Have the word YAMS on a flying banner that is being pulled by a plane.
Have the word YAMS in the sky as smoke trailing from a plane!
Have the word YAMS down the side of a blimp or barrage balloon.
Have the word YAMS down the side of an Airship.
Have the word YAMS around the sides of the Hot Air Balloon!
Have the word YAMS spelled out by 4 hot air balloons side by side, so each balloon is a letter.
You get the idea, find a creative way to display the words YAMS in the air so it can be seen from spawn tower or even down below.
The competition is open from now until sometime before we move (sorry no date yet), everyone can take part including staff who have been helping me with the new world.
The winner will of course get their build displayed in the new world as that's what we need it for and depending on what was built and how its been built I will try and make a warp to it, so don't forget to add details and such.
If you would like to take part, please take a wander down to the bottom of spawn tower where you will find the events portal section with a portal to the fly high world. You'll want to make sure you leave your items at home, you will also loose experience to use it up before visiting!
I feel the need to mention this as Iâ€™m not too happy about it a few things recently concerning people sticking to their same little groups and not inviting others to participate:[list]
[*]Going mining in groups and never inviting others, especially new players: Everyone on YAMS should feel welcome and have the chance to go mining with others.
[*]Creating â€œsecretâ€ groups amongst people: we are an open community; we donâ€™t need little guilds here and there.
[*]Hermits and cave dwellers: Donâ€™t keep yourself to yourself in your own little house, come out of your hiding place and talk to others, we won't bite and whats the worst that can happen really? We are a family friendly server, lets keep up to that name!
[*]Keeping your resources to yourself: Iâ€™m talking about the people who keep their items to themselves and wonâ€™t give them up unless it benefits them! Sure you have worked hard to get the materials but spreading a few amongst new players wonâ€™t hurt you and Iâ€™m sure the new players will remember it well. Some of the best stories Iâ€™ve heard from people on YAMS are about those that were offered materials when they had nothing to build with! And Iâ€™m not talking about community chests and leaving your junk in there; Iâ€™m talking about actually handing something to someone they can actually use.
[*]People not willing to give tours because itâ€™s not their job: It doesnâ€™t have to be a member of staff who gives a tour, if they are not on or seem very busy, why not offer to do it for them? Some of the most successful tours Iâ€™ve seen done are by non-staff members.
[*]Working on projects but not letting others help out: Itâ€™s no fun not being able to help out on anything, especially when you really feel you could help but get shoved away all the time when you ask.
[*]Building projects but not telling others: Thereâ€™s been a few instances recently in which a few projects have been created but unless you were there at the time it was built or were told directly about it, youâ€™d never know about it. Sure thereâ€™s the saying that you should explore YAMS and find these things but some of these projects have been in the most obscure locations and as a new player I may not enter for fear of being banned.
Basically were a community. Our number 1 rule if you didnâ€™t know is be a part of the community. So peeps letâ€™s see more working together amongst you all, instead of little pockets of people here and there in selective groups talking or working together!
We are all to blame including me, so I am locking this topic and hope you all take this post as a reflection on how we can all improve!
P.S. Have a Good Christmas/Holiday and a Happy New Year!
