@  DakotaKid98 : (10 October 2016 - 04:44 AM) http://hyperzone.tech/
@  DakotaKid98 : (10 October 2016 - 04:44 AM) It's been revived and running for more than a year
@  KookieNCoffee1 : (22 September 2016 - 03:13 AM) Woot!
@  Lumandrill : (20 September 2016 - 06:33 PM) xD
@  Lumandrill : (20 September 2016 - 06:33 PM) Revive The techworld!
@  Brisingr17 : (28 August 2016 - 10:10 AM) Glad the old site is back, lots of memories
@  Lumandrill : (23 August 2016 - 05:07 PM) Wuhuuu First Visitor in a year :D
@  seanos1998 : (10 April 2015 - 08:44 PM) haha, let's not hope, but know that it will be a good next three years!
@  Aaria : (10 April 2015 - 08:43 PM) Yep, and hopefully a good almost-three years on the next server!
@  seanos1998 : (10 April 2015 - 08:43 PM) say, will people who have been a part of the server since techworld get a special title perhaps? would be nice :P
@  seanos1998 : (10 April 2015 - 08:41 PM) ... *Sigh* it's been a good almost-three years here...
@  Aaria : (10 April 2015 - 08:40 PM) Yes, very sadly this website and forums will be no longer in use by the end of today if Galen gets it done tonight
@  seanos1998 : (10 April 2015 - 08:37 PM) I guess we're leaving this forum then?

@  Darkflames : (09 April 2015 - 10:25 PM) (to all the awaiting fans that is.)
@  Darkflames : (09 April 2015 - 10:24 PM) While we wait, our communities from the last server can reorganize. Like Colonia. Open a thread, plan something. Just because the server isn't ready doesn't mean we can't socialize ;;)
@  Aaria : (09 April 2015 - 05:00 PM) In the next few days or next week it's likely we'll be doing a public beta for people who check the forums, but even that won't be released until we have everything we need up, working and as stable as possible
@  Aaria : (09 April 2015 - 04:59 PM) Unlike with the last map we are leaving a proper launch until we are sure that we've covered everything and that all major issues have already been fixed before a playerbase is established
@  Aaria : (09 April 2015 - 04:57 PM) No the reason isn't permissions

#515 Moderator Application Requirements

Posted by Mastergalen on 26 February 2012 - 06:43 PM

If you would like to apply to be a moderator on Techworld, this is the place to do it. However, there are a few a questions you must answer in your application. Please go back out of this post and create a new topic in the Staff application forum.

Why become Moderator?
You may be thinking: why should I become a moderator? Being a Moderator sure brings a lot of responsibility with you and you will have less free time playing than usual.. People will be bugging you a lot, asking you questions and for help. However, while you may be annoyed at times, you will be rewarded with (mostly) grateful players.

Becoming a Moderator on a server this size is also quite prestigious and gives you something to brag about. It shows that you're mature, helpful and friendly.

You will also be able to take part in active discussions about future events, new plugin additions to the server, beta testing new features and so on and the staff group is pretty tight :)/>.

 

Minimal Requirements:

  • The topic title must be [Mod Application] YOUR MINECRAFT NAME HERE.
  • You must have been on this server for more than 7 days. (More than 14 is preferred)
  • You must have built noteworthy structure(s)
  • You must be helpful and be an accepted member of the community.
  • You must have good English skills. Good grammar and spelling. as well as
  • You must be 14 years of age or older and act mature.
  • You must not cheat/antagonize other users (We will scan the logs for this!)
  • Donors are preferred as it shows that they have a more vested interest in the server.
  • You must have read through the Staff Guidelines thoroughly and will follow them at all times.
  • You must have Skype and actively use it, or be willing to use it, if you get accepted.

Things you MUST include:

  • What timezone are you in?
  • How old are you?
  • Are you familiar with Minecraft? How long have you played? What about Tekkit-wise?
  • How long have you been playing on Techworld?
  • About how long are you able to play on the server each day?
  • Have you made any cool/nice buildings on our server/elsewhere? If so please screenshot and post picture.
  • Why do you want to become a mod? Convince us.
  • Include a link to any of your previous Staff Application threads.
  • Did you read the Staff Guidelines and do you agree to follow them at all times?
  • Do you have Skype and do you regularly use it or plan to, if you get accepted?

If you feel you feel you don't meet any of these requirements, please don't apply! It will only waste our time and your efforts! This does not mean you can't help in more indirect ways though, such as answering questions in the chat.

Look at some other accepted staff applications for reference.

We will be picking new staff members as we need them from the pool of applications. You may not receive a response to your application for a couple weeks in some cases, but that only means that your application qualifies to be in the pool for potential new staff members.

Write in English, with correct grammar, spelling and consisting of only prose.




#41039 Event suggestions? Suggestions for improvement? Plugin suggestions? ANY sugge...

Posted by MasterSushiChef on 01 January 2013 - 05:44 PM

I have a great idea...THE QUANTUM SUIT OLYMPICS!!!!

So basically you have these events that are related to quantum suits such as "Super High Jump", "Extreme Parkour"...etc.
Then maybe the prize would be credits or items or whatever...

The only problem is that not everyone has quantum suits and will not get some for a long time...so only some people could compete in it.

But really we something like that since spleef is disabled.

#36288 The Case of The Missing Sheep

Posted by SerasVictoria_ on 26 August 2012 - 08:32 PM

All i see here is that you were evading the question. Also Rinky HAS proof that you broke into their property. Then you tried to say that Rinky broke into your property, with no proof.
All i see here is a child trying that cant give a straight answer because he knows hes been caught, and "it sounded as if he was about to kill my family"...really? how is that even a valid thing. So you got caught stealing in minecraft OH NOES ....dude really.. just admit you took the damn sheep Rinky already has proof..


#29817 [Mod application] _REDACTED_

Posted by Karrakazz on 23 July 2012 - 02:16 AM

yet I am pretty sure that galen doesn't approve it, at least I don't. This way everyone is able to become moderator, I never asked anyone to review my app, or to comment something on it. only one friend of mine commented.

I don't think someone with a good reputation would have to bribe people to speak a good word about him. Him doing so gives me the impression that he's trying to make up for something. I mostly read negative feedback in the comments. We don't choose mods based on the number of posts on their apps telling how good they are, sure it helps but we don't judge solely on that.

And yes I do tend to give away things at random times, but only to people I get along with or when i'm just being impulsive.


#29719 [Mod application] _REDACTED_

Posted by Ravage55 on 22 July 2012 - 09:04 PM

Shortdelay is "helpful" on the server but I have to agree with monkey. He was giving away free stuff and I asked him how much he willing to sell me iron. He said free but I'm not the type that wants stuff for free so I constantly told him I want to pay. He then said he will give it to me for free but just write a good comment on his mod application. I'm not the type that likes to get bribed into writing false reviews so I declined his offer and went along my business. Besides that, he has been quite helpful to pplz but I don't like how he tried to bribe pplz in writing a good comment on his mod application. If he truely is a helpful guy, he shouldn't be the type that ask for praises. praises are earned, not bought or asked for. Idk, that's my own opinion.


#28810 [Mod application] _REDACTED_

Posted by Guest on 19 July 2012 - 01:57 AM

I hate to say this, and in no way am I trying to be selfish, malicious, or am I really jealous of you in any way, however I would like to briefly relay earlier today's event.

Stage is set. I have made a miner and gotten all the supplies! Yes! Oh wait...I don't have the pipes.
The conversation went something like this.

Monkeyboy309: Anyone have some mining pipes?
ShortDelay: Yeah, I have 19.
Monkeyboy309: Could I buy them/take them off your hands?
Short Delay: One second, I'm on teleport cooldown.
[ShortDelay ---> Me] You can have them if you write a good reccomendation for me. I'm applying for Mod.
[Me ----> ShortDelay] Maybe. I'm kinda lazy though, so I might not get around to it.

It seemed that he was no longer particularly happy with me, so instead he raffled them off to whoever could answer some questions right first.

In conclusion, I just wanted to say I felt this was underhanded, and I personally wouldn't be all that surprised if some of the players were, in a way, bribed by ShortDelay to leave a good reccomendation. I think a reccomendation should be more based off "Wow, this guy is really cool, and he helps me out, and he does a lot of great things for the good of the server. I'm actually going to take time out of my Minecraft day and post about how great he is on his reccomendation". Not, "Hrm....I really want this Diamond Tip Mining Drill...yeah I guess I'll go reccomend this guy...". I just wanted to throw that out there. From my encounters I would say he isn't the Mod type, but who knows, maybe I haven't gotten to know the guy very much. I haven't seen him on the server a lot, but we could have conflicting time zones, I guess.

#42369 [Mod Application] T_McLean51439

Posted by T_McLean51439 on 14 February 2013 - 02:52 AM

What timezone are you in?: Central

 

How old are you?: 14, Will be 15 in September

 

Are you familiar with Minecraft? How long have you played? What about Tekkit-wise?: Yes very, around 3 years, around 1 year

 

How long have you been playing on Techworld?: About 11 months

 

About how long are you able to play on the server each day?: 6-8 Hours

 

Have you made any cool/nice buildings on our server/elsewhere?: If so please screenshot and post picture.: I am working on some.

 

Why do you want to become a mod? Convince us.: I love to play Tekkit. I also love to help people. I am in the Civil Air Patrol which is basically a pre-Air Force, so I am most likely willing to help new people and people that have been here for a while. I am very good with Redpower, Buildcraft, Industrial Craft, and by looking at a YouTube video I can solve ComputerCraft problems. So I basically know everything about Tekkit. When the mod-pack updates though I will require some time to learn the new stuff. There isn't a lot of staff on during the day time, and I would like to help solve that problem. I will not become power hungry, go crazy with power and things like that. I will help anyone to the best of my ability. When I am on I will make sure no one needs help regularly by asking if anyone needs help. I will help new people get settled if I'm not doing something big for myself. I'll help to create new server buildings and give new ideas. I will also help regulate the forums if that is apart of a Moderator's job. I have also played many other servers and none a as well regulated, maintained, and as fun as this one. I hope to benefit the staff team and if I get the spot plan to be around for a VERY long time. I try to promote the server to new people by saying "(name) become a member! Either apply or donate $10 and get it instantly." I also help people that died from lava and try to give them all they had before dieing from my own materials.

 

Include a link to any of your previous Staff Application threads.:None

 

Did you read the Staff Guidelines and do you agree to follow them at all times?: Yes

 

Do you have Skype and do you regularly use it or plan to, if you get accepted?: I will get in the habit of using it if accepted.




#41753 Event suggestions? Suggestions for improvement? Plugin suggestions? ANY sugge...

Posted by optravisprime on 19 January 2013 - 08:43 PM

I know I'm not the only person who has noticed a general reluctance among the new players to actually read the rules before submitting an application and agreeing that they did. Within a few minutes of them logging in, they're asking questions that they would know the answer to if they had just actually spend ten minutes reading.

While the obnoxious questions themselves aren't necessarily a terrible thing, they do point to a bigger problem. Not reading the rules eventually leads to people like Piesforpies thinking it's okay to grief in the wilderness since there's no server protection there. I think adding an short, simple quiz to the application process would provide several benefits:

1. The most obvious would be better overall adherence to the rules, and hopefully would eliminate people breaking them from ignorance (although them doing so is entirely their own fault).

2. If it was ten or so questions and multiple choice, but required you to get 100% of the questions correct in order to submit your application, the possibility of someone guessing all of the answers correctly would be astronomically low.

3. Providing clear access to the rules page at the top of the quiz and allowing applicants to retake it until they passed would actually encourage them to take the few minutes to read the rules that they should have in the first place.

4. If the questions are easy, and the answer is fairly clear to pick out of the choices, applicants won't get frustrated, but will also learn the rules, whether by reading them or by getting the answer correctly without reading them (since many of the rules are common sense anyway).

5. It would help to weed out people who just intend to steal or grief as soon as they get on and don't care if they get banned, since they don't plan on contributing to the server anyway. Although it would only take a few extra minutes to fill out the application, it's more involved than just having to check a box saying you read the rules without actually having to read them.

I have an idea that I have pitched to you guys in chat but I thought I would pitch it here. I would like etonstart a server version off the popular tekkit YouTube competion called Wrenched! Basically you get some items in a chest that you have to incorporate into a build. There is also a communal area full of resources to use in the build. You get a set amount of time and space to build. Just thought it would be fun to do. I would love to be part of the build for the space if anyone wants to do it. :)

Edit: you can se this on Direwolf's channel


So basically a tekkit version of the show Chopped on Food Network right?
