    Wow, what an idiot. At least post the goddamn video under another alias if you haven't been caught yet. Also, large-scale griefing on these servers is just pointless as a rollback is always an option.

    Side note: The logo did look pretty awesome burning though.

    So are we rolling back? I was working on something but I am going to stop if it's all going to be undone.

    The server has been rolled back, so you can continue work on any projects you were working on.:D

    CStaal has been banned for life from the server.

    Well ... at least you knew it wasn't me or that video would have been 30 minutes of getting to the logo, 4 disconnects and then me complaining about not having any coal. :D

    I have to agree with Joe, that was pretty awesome. :eek:
    (even though my jaw dropped when I saw Ford's first picture.)

    I'm gonna log on to Rhino's server and start griefing !!! :rockout:

    Oh wait ... my MC username would kind of give it away. :/
    Nevermind.

    Speaking of servers, I got way more lag on Rhino's than Newt's. Not sure why.
    Just an observation, not a condemnation.

    Tekie it was actually me who burned down all the stuff on the server. Here is how I accomplished this. This is my confession:

    1. I hacked into CStaal's minecraft account
    2. I hacked into CStaal's computer, and played minecraft with his IP address without his knowledge, while he was on the computer
    3. I hacked into CStaal's TechPowerUp account and am now masquerading as him while posting from his IP address.
    4. I hacked into CStaal's Youtube account and posted a video through his computer of me burning down all the stuff...
    And all while being fast asleep in my bed or playing Starcraft. I'm so 1337. :D

    Picture related, it's CStaal on the cover!

    In all seriousness glad to see everything is back to normal. Did you use BB to fix it Tekie, or actually rollback to a previous backup?

    Nice try Caboose, but after hacking into YT to get the low down on the video, I backtraced through 14 proxies to find the originating IP address.

    CjStall was a psuedonym derived from a Pi-hack of the name "Soylent Joe", which in turn was run through a polymorph engine that pushed it from Newtekie. Before that a trans-layered, mutlibyte transform was applied to the name "EsyRhino" (notice misspelling) which when dissasembled to long instruction set symantics produced the result, "Chevy's Suck".

    So it was obviously Ford who did it. :p

    It was actually Notch. He never works on the game, due to spending countless hours playing it under the handle of "FordGT90Concept"

    Could that also result in a ban on the forums?

    I didn't have time to use BB, so I just restored from a backup.

    I'd like it to, but I don't have that power, and it isn't my place to ask. The forums and the MC server are seperate, just like seperate forums, a person's actions on one do not affect their status on the other.

    No. There are no TPU rules that say you cannot go outside of the TPU forums and grief in games.
    As long as a member's account it in good standing here, they can do what they want elsewhere.
    Think Mussles and 4chan.

    We need to divvy up his stuff, he had a boatload of crap he got from using his X-Ray hacks. I'm in need of a new diamond shovel. :p

    I keep getting this error when I try to lock a chest

    "Lockette: Permission to lock container denied."

    Any ideas? It was working just fine yesterday.

    If this was the case, Garyinhere, Erocker, Sneekypeet, myself, and half of the TPU TS server would be banned. Glad to see they are separate (duh!).

    Means Tekie broke the server again. It should be fixed soon if we complain a lot. (not a tough fix IIRC)

    Here's a little insight into us as moderators on TPU.
    Our job is to police the forums (not the interwebz) and ensure that the members are following the rules and not creating drama (baiting, flaming, name calling, etc. etc.).
    No more. No less.

    We as moderators go through the same thing everyone else does when we see something wrong (kill the bass steward!), however, we are expected to respond with a level of professionalism that is representative of the TPU staff.

    While there are times we would like to infract (or ban) someone on TPU for something they did in another avenue of the internet where we may hang out, it would be considered an abuse of moderator powers and W1zz would come down on us like a ton of bricks. This has happened before and it's not pretty ... believe me.

    This is part of the professionalism that W1zz wants to see on this site. We are not perfect and have our moments, but for the most part we (mods) are in agreement on how the boards should be handled, and behind the scenes we police each other (didn't know that, did you? ;) )

    Anyway, I think that Newt handled this in a very professional manner (ban the user, no trashing on the forum) and makes a very good game server administrator. :toast:

    Now get back to building, you slackers.

    Well I thought I deserved a commendation for outstanding troll finding skills. But it's only minecraft. So... MEH!

    Edit: Be back later. Having an ingrown toenail cut out... Here comes pain!

    Unfortunately you don't see sarcasm when it's screaming at you in the face.

    Congratulations you're officially E-Tough.

    You're in Wisconson, newtekie1 is in Indiana. That cuts down on the latency.


    Oh no. :( Looks like I sleep hack. :laugh:

    Take into account the satellite and I think that the distance between the two becomes extremely negligible!

    Depends on where the Earth-based receiver is. Most likely, it is in Wisconson too.

    I'm not exactly sure how it works, but I am thinking that Kreij has a receiver at his house, bounces a magical beam off the satellite, and then goes to the central transmitting station in whoknowswhere. In my opinion, this is like extending the side of a big triangle, and doing so will have little effect on the distance of another side, whilst maintaining the same angle (which we don't even know if it is correct cause the satellite moves!).
