Hello! Just wanted to inform you all of a couple of changes.
First of all, I rewrote the entire rules page to condense it, make it look nicer, and make things easier to find. I removed irrelevant, old rules that no longer apply to our network, and added the most current and updated ones.
Please review the updated rules and make yourself aware of the changes (which are few, but some extra things are clarified).
Factions - Inappropriate builds are now allowed within the confines of your base. (See "Factions Rules" for more specifics)
Factions/Prison - nether portal traps are not allowed. All other traps are still allowed.
Website Rules - more specific mini-modding explanation
TeamSpeak/Discord voice channels - seriously condensed the rules, basically keep mature chat in the mature channels
Prison - added exceptions to the global rules (see "Prison Rules")
Skyblock - added list of allowed spawner types
This may come as a surprise to some of you, but Nick has been preparing a fresh factions server to accommodate our new players. Along with a blank map, he has implemented a bunch of new features and fixes to make sure you have the best experience possible. Also, I have added some new custom enchants. The following is a comprehensive list of everything new.
Stackable water and lava buckets
Genbuckets allow you to quickly generate walls of cobblestone.
To craft: empty bucket, 3 cobblestone. /warp genbucket
As few of you probably know, today is arcade's 3rd birthday. That's three entire years since I wrote the first line of code for arcade, and it seems like really long time ago now. Arcade encapsulates much of the global functionality of the network such as cosmetics, chat management, infractions, global ranks, g-tokens, mob stacking, and other features; as well as some entire servers such as Skywars and Trenches. On account of the celebration, I am hosting a public contest to guess the number of lines of code in Arcade. That includes everything in these folders. The person who guesses closest to the actual number (above or below) will receive a 20 credit voucher in their gifts inventory. This contest will close 24 hours from now, that's 11:30 EDT on 3/25/17.
The contest is now closed, the winner is HARRYPOTTER22 with the guess of 350,000, and the correct number is 355,506.
It's about that time for another Paradise Prom. *audience cringes*
We had our first Prom last April, and although there were some people who thought it cringe-worthy (I mean, let's be real, it's a virtual Prom), most everyone enjoyed it and had a good time playing the minigames. We haven't decided on a full list of games that will be played at this year's Prom, but it is time for the nominations and skin competition!
To nominate someone for Prom King or Prom Queen, click here and fill out the form. You can only nominate one person for each role. Also, if you have any suggestions for the event itself, feel free to include them in the last question!
In order to enter the skin competition, please go to this thread. Make sure your entry follows the rules!
An official date, time, and prizes will be announced at a later date, but it will be...

Just a quick little update for you all, Prison is finally getting reset. Everyone I've talked to online has been waiting months for this reset and we're excited to finally bring it to you! The server will be reset on March 4, 2017 @ 11 AM EST! Here are a couple of the new features you can look forward to!
New Mines (A-Z)
Rewards for breaking blocks
Coinflip, Jackpot, Rock Paper Scissors
More of an OP approach
We hope you are as excited as we are for this reset. We can't wait to show you the new stuff!
Hey guys! As you know, I've been working on a Skyblock reset for you all, and it was released today. The new version includes some pretty sweq new features, so I thought it'd be helpful if I explained them all here.
When you type /is for the first time, there are 9 starter islands for you to choose from. Here's a preview of each of them:
Basic Starter Island - This is the default Skyblock island. Oak - A small island with two oak trees and some plants.
Spruce - A small island with two spruce trees and some plants and ores.
Big Mushroom - A medium-sized island with a large clay mushroom....
Additionally, we have been very appreciative of your support with our new G-Token ad system. Because of how awesome and epic you are, we've decided to announce our first ever DOUBLE GTOKEN WEEKEND! This means that on Saturday and Sunday of this weekend, you will recieve TWO GTOKENS for every ad watch! This will make it much easier to collect keys and ranks. Use /ads to get /gtokens...
Recently, @JonNub and I have been working hard on two more server resets, Skyblock and Freelance!
I'm really excited to present Skyblock to you. It's the first server I've made entirely on my own, and I think it's a big improvement from our current version. It features 35 new challenges, 8 new custom enchants, and 9 different starter islands for you to choose from! There will be 3 new mob arenas, a new pvp arena, and a new spawn as well. Due to popular interest, I have added ore generators to Skyblock too. Global ranks and SkyOverlord/SkyBoss have increasingly higher chances of getting valuable ores. Any Skyblock ranks below that have chances equivalent to Swabbie.
The Freelance reset will present several new features and many bug fixes, including a fix for broken plot merging. Hopefully it'll increase activity on the server!
We have tentatively set a release date as next Saturday,...
