Hello Blockdrop!

So, as part of the new crackdown on hackers (see the update below) we will be recruiting a lot of new staff.

I will start off with around 40 all in 1 go, then a few weeks later I will recruit more.

The 1st announcement of staff will be on November 1st so if you haven't already applied then please apply now in time for the 1st big announcement.

Good luck!

Thanks.

Hello Blockdrop!

Okay so, based on the voting results from the last post, it looks like a lot us want to clamp down on hackers and remove them. So this is what I will help to do.

Stage 1 is already complete, I have made all bans global. This mean that any bans, including Watchdog will ban from all servers, instead of just the server that the ban happened. This will stop people being banned on 1 game (like Factions) and then just going to hack in Skyblock instead.

The next step is to extend the Watchdog ban lengths. Improve watchdogs detection and recruit around 80 new staff to tackle all hackers.

We will also have a page on the forums for anyone to see who is banned, when and why.

We want it to be at a point where you can contact a staff at any point in the day and remove hackers instantly.

We will also be adding a new option on the server selector for a server that people can go to that staff will wait at, so you can easily find a staff member.

I am doing all of this because of the results from the last post. It looks like a lot of the community want this and I always say that Blockdrop is a community effort, so I will do what the most people want.

If anyone has anymore suggestions then please make a post about it and I will read it.

Thanks for reading, thanks for playing and thanks for being an active part in this community.

Hello Blockdrop.

I have seen a lot of complaints about hackers so I do have a plan.

Instead of recruiting staff slowly, it could be possible to recruit and train around 80 staff (8 each for each of the main game modes) and get them online as often as possible.

The aim would be to have at least 1 staff online in any game mode at any one time, this would result in less hackers and less toxic people in chat.

I know that most of Blockdrop are amazing people who make our community amazing and would want to get rid of the few who ruin it for everyone.

I do always say that this server is made by the players so I will leave it down to a vote. Please use the vote on this thread to say if you would think its a good idea that we should recruit loads of staff.

Thanks.
