  1. Staff Conduct

    Upon request, and in the interest of transparency, we are opening the staff conduct to be seen by the wider community. This document was originally intended to be in the staff forum.
  2. Staff Conduct

    Staff Conduct Our Principles as a Team | March 16th, 2018 Welcome to the Staff. You are the caretakers of the finest Minecraft roleplay server, Lord of the Craft. Every day, every moment: something crumbles, someone has a question, a request, or a dire need—something or someone needs attention and we need a frontier of eager and competent people to fulfill this duty. That’s you. And without you, there can be no server. At some point, you decided that something on this server is meaningful to you. Meaningful enough, that you take on responsibility to keep it alive and thriving. We, the administration are, as is your community, truly grateful that you accept this responsibility upon yourself to improve and preserve our favourite roleplay server. This post is designed to help you become familiar with your widened responsibility and likewise the staff structure. Duty To know, preserve, and follow staff conduct. To fulfill your roles as defined by your superiors. To be an active, communicating participant of the staff. Permissions In return for your promise to fulfill your role we grant you elevated powers. We trust you to use your powers only for staff purposes—it is true that we have greater authority but do not mistake that for superiority over our community. We call for you to know your tools, and to become competent with your toolset during your tenure. Know what is dangerous, and exercise caution to avoid unintended consequences. If your powers are inadequate for your role, please report this to your director. It is their duty to consider this with the administration, and if necessary, to add permissions. Finally, report any misuse. You are required to report malpractice to your team director. You can simply leave them a message. Communication In return for access to staff channels and staff recognition, we expect that you act appropriately and politely. This means adjusting your professionalism accordingly to the circumstance. Aim to be objective and composed. By and large, we support targeting the issues—not the individuals. We expect that you avoid being impulsive and control yourself. Mock your community at your own risk. We absolutely forbid misinformation/speculation, dissemination of confidential matters, or instigating drama. You are free to, and even should, offer corrections to your fellow staff. However, we expect that you will restrain yourself from public contradiction (i.e. the forums, public Discord, etc.), which often aims to humiliate or discredit (in practice, people are unlikely to admit that is what they’re doing). Find them, or their superiors, and discuss the issue. Finally, we comprise a staff of over 90, and typically only a few administrators. For this reason, we ask that you direct your concerns and comments to your nearest superior, either manager/director whichever comes first. If they can’t help you, they will find someone who can. Absence If you are going away for a period over 3 days, you must notify your teams. If your teams have no procedure for hiatus, report your absence to your superiors. If you leave for an extended period then team management may dismiss your role, especially in favour of an active candidate. Soliciting Community Feedback If you require wide-scale community feedback, you must coordinate this with your director. Topics that risk controversy require explicit admin approval. You must collect information from the greatest possible selection of those affected. e.g. feedback regarding managers must be open to the entire team. Access to polling results should be provided to your director beforehand, and to any requesting administrators. Do your best to remain objective. Be prepared to have your initial stance contradicted. If you must comment on the matter, do so in a reply to the original post to show that it is an opinion. Once you have completed the polling, you must produce a legible, sound document—with sources and graphics where possible. Present using a medium that is straightforward and cover any relevant details. The poll results must be maximally available as possible to those who participated. Inside polling (e.g. staff) is confidential.
  3. Community Guidelines

    Community Guidelines Back To Our Roots | March 16th, 2018 A charming and defining quality of our server has always been the way we blend a serious take on roleplay with a laid-back and friendly attitude. From the moment that we sign on after our first application, we acknowledge an unspoken duty—to preserve this experience and to help each other enjoy our time here. To support a stimulating, encouraging, and jolly place—a community that you can grow and develop in. Together, we write a story. We write it in such a way that no single person owns a chapter, or even a full page. Gradually, as we discover more of this tale it reveals the exceptional appeal of our server: Thousands of people contributing verses to a grand narrative—simply by playing their own character. These guidelines are put together to help you make the most out of the time you spend on Lord of the Craft (“LotC”). Below are a collection of what we believe are the optimal virtues for the best possible experience. You will not only get more out of your time here, but help others with the same. Concept: The Narrative is the epic story which records all of the actions and events of all personas on Lord of the Craft. We share this epic and scribble in it every day by logging on, greeting old friends and making new ones, and sharing a roleplay experience. Be Laid-back & Considerate Free-flowing roleplay and mutual respect is the fruit of a candid compromise. The Narrative has no main characters—no protagonists, because we all partake through a personal perspective. LotC has no end-game. There is no path to “victory”. Consider that it is often useful to concede and to “lose” a roleplay conflict. Learning to yield gracefully is a hallmark of the veteran roleplayer. Significant character growth comes, by and large, when learning to thrive despite defeat. Put your back into an encounter without trying to bend it in anyone’s favor—witness it unfold. A laid-back & considerate attitude wins you well-deserved respect from your fellow roleplayer. Be Encouraging & Open Regard your fellow person with courtesy and dignity, knowing that every individual you encounter is valuable in the grand scheme of The Narrative. We have a habit of relaying our cheer, and so, when one of us grows happier all of us do. Remember to emphasize what is done well, and help transform mistakes into growth. People respond best to encouragement and will always be more receptive to suggestions & alternatives over outright denial. And finally, when the chance emerges, spend a moment to help a new or returning player find their bearings—you will make a new friend and expand your network. With a wider network you experience a greater variety of fascinating and amusing roleplay—altogether, good fun! An encouraging & open attitude builds strong connections (plus friendships!) and a thrilling experience. Be Creative & Authentic In the library of roleplay, you play the greatest part in determining your experience. Don’t be afraid to wonder—and to wander. We can record and archive every single thing in this universe, but then it will lose its charm, and its wonder. Consider that the moment you plan and script your adventure into stone—it is over. So take to the roads and set no destination, let The Narrative take care of the details, and your journey will be memorable. A creative and authentic attitude inspires novel and memorable experiences. Be Detached yet Enthusiastic It is important to have a degree of emotional investment in your roleplay—because it’s the only way you can enjoy it. However, taking it too far provokes resentment and bitterness; the more you commission your sanity and temperament to your fictitious work, the more vulnerable you become. Balancing your level of investment in your characters is foremost to a healthy relationship with The Narrative and its participants. Distance yourself from your character—their ambitions are charming, their flaws are unmistakable, their behaviour is their own, and their failures are comical. You do guide their actions—and yet none of their quirks reflect on you, and none of their mistakes represent you. A detached yet enthusiastic attitude tempers a steady character and wise judgement. Be Independent & Proactive Make the roleplay that you would like to see. LotC provides a platform for hundreds of simultaneous stories to unfold. Be mindful that every story has those who would and wouldn't enjoy them. Sometimes needs are so diverse and specific that you may need to be the first to explore that territory. You can find practical feedback in the community. Do not be shy to communicate—but do read the reactions of your fellow roleplayers. There is no shame in leaving an idea behind—only in quitting trying new ones. Your community will reward you for creativity, especially for engaging and responsive content. In return, encourage the creativity that you see, the diverse thought, because with each dream there is a chance you will claim a pivotal moment in the history of our server. An independent & proactive attitude empowers you to stop waiting and usher in the experience you desire. The following records are commentaries on controversial topics, issues afflicting many of us that can be deeply pernicious. Narcissism in Roleplay Placing yourself before your character to surrender immersion, and to play God. To take in-character matters to the metagame, and, equally, the reverse. ”Simply that you have been convinced does not mean your character has been—or even would be.” It is a very specific form of narcissism defined here. It depicts the moment you descend from the author to the character. It is a surprisingly obscure yet harmful sin, as some convince themselves it is unavoidable or even necessary. Your character may befriend another character. You may befriend your fellow player. But, You must never befriend a character. It is not easy to know the desires of your characters. It is not immediately evident what they are—even to you, who creates them. It becomes easy to conflate your being with the one you animate. Do not make your character about you, a reflection of you, or a projection of you. Diversify your characters, cultivate their exotic, unique, meaningful being, and conduct them as beings independent of you. Deceit A casual or persistent manipulation of others out-of-character. Your character may have their reasons for lying: for extra coin, for whispers, or for allies. But, when you, as a person, lie—you cheat the game. When you boil it down—it is a symptom of Narcissism. How better to pull strings of fate than to lie on a level your character never can? But it is misleading, as deceit blurs the line between you and your characters. It blurs the separation of your motives. It brings you one step closer to associating your mental state with that of your character. Gradually, as you narrow your vision and imagination to a rigid objective, you sacrifice your candid charm and curiosity. Later, you forfeit willingness to compromise, and to listen. Soon enough, your only “truth” is the one that brings your character success. Then, maybe, there no longer is a character. It’s just you. Say the truth out-of-character, or say nothing at all. Separate the trickery, manipulation, and deceit of your character from yourself. In their bloody reality of steel and sorcery, they conspire to survive. Here, as a community of writers, we instead merely cooperate to produce an interesting story.

  7. Yeu Pilgrimage and Mass Teaching

    A muddied beard shifts beneath Farmer Billy Bob's grimy digits. He drops his hand, as if having caught whispers, and rests it on his hip. "Wup der seyin'? Der nup gon' viset tha' pepul they dun' lyke? A weak convikshun ay fink."
  8. LoTC's donations and money.

    Sorry—I'm not weighing in on the conversation just yet but I am required to make a correction here. We offer no donation options, and no perks for donating. Instead, our VIP are our customers who purchase a VIP, the EULA does not permit for server donations which provide any variety of perks. Edit: A clarification—attempting to refund your transaction via PayPal or a bank will result in a denial of services.
  9. Time to step down

    Paleo, I thank you for your service to our server and community. You’ve done your part to leave a meaningful mark, and to incorporate what you believe is best. There is no sin in following your truth. Really though, it is a shame to see you depart so soon from our ranks, but I wish you all of the best. Vaynth and you have done an exceptional job and I do not regret having you here. I wouldn’t go as far as to call protocol a holy-text, merely something we agree to follow upon undertaking the role, to avoid chaos. If someone is curious about what it is we’ve never been especially secretive about it. Protocol in a nut-shell means an administrative backbone, and accountability and communication to each other (at minimum). It means an admin can’t construct their personal utopia using LotC as their playground. Because LotC is not a mere playground, but a significant part of many lives. But, I don’t want to steal the thunder here, thank you Paleo. I wish you all the best in your future endeavours. Stick around.
  10. [✗] Saarty1's Ban Appeal

    This ban has been assigned to administrative jurisdiction, thank you Suxals. We have held an administrative vote on the matter and are closing this appeal. I set for review both the contents of your appeal, as well as our personal discussion. I wish you better luck next time, and general good behaviour will make your next appeal simpler.
