STAFF NEWS/UPCOMING EVENTS

Congratulations to everyone who applied in the last staff update! Remember to get your applications in ASAP for the next update.

Remember to check out the new I-S Hall of Fame at /warp HallofFame or /warp HoF

The Drop Party will be held at its usual time of 4:30 PM Central Time at /warp DP on Sunday so we hope to see you there!


PLAYER ANNOUNCEMENTS

Anonymous suggested that players should vote to choose the top staff on the server, i.e. who should be Head Admin.

Ghost8797 wants to announce that Heroville 5 is closed while it is being built. No one should go to the town, as it will be trespassing if they do. He also states that his Empire is far from weak, as it can easily reopen towns.

Taybuy wishes that it be known that Hotel Holmes is being remodeled and will open in time for spring break! Anyone interested in opening a business in Holmesville should talk to Taybug. Taybug is also hosting a decorating festival soon.

Anonymous suggested that the newsletter be entirely about bh4. I'm guessing this was submitted by bh4. And bh4, you aren't a player, bro.

Gurl_345 submitted a quote! "When life gives you lemons, please do not make lemonade. (Because that's too cheesy)." -I.D.K.


ANSWERS TO PLAYERS' BURNING QUESTIONS FOR THE STAFF TEAM

MarsMoon1 asked "Who owns the server?"

Vicirator replied "Mars, you know that I know that you know who the owner is. But in case you forgot, It's Blox."

Anonymous asked "What day is today?"

Vicirator replied "Today is Saturday, February 28th of the year 2015."

Anonymous asked "Would it be possible for players to vote on the new Trial Mods or which staff should get Head Admin?"

Vicirator replied "It's unlikely that this will be implemented, as we have a very good structure in place to choose new staff. This process has been refined over the years and we've got it down to a science now, so we don't really want to mess that up. This is an interesting idea though. If you want, players could have a vote, and staff may consider this when making decisions regarding promotions, but I don't see it happening where players directly promote people by way of a vote."


QUESTION OF THE WEEK

Which legendary players should be added to the new Hall of Fame?  Answer in the comments below!


STAFF OF THE WEEK

This week's staff of the week is LordSupplicium!  Lord solved a record number of griefs this week and brought justice to many players who were breaking the rules. In honor of this accomplishment, Lord has been named Staff of the Week this week.  


FEATURED BUILD OF THE WEEK

The featured build this week is /warp HallofFame, built by bh4 and Vicirator.


That's all for this week's issue. If you want to submit a question, announcement, or something else fun for next week, write it down in a book and quill and throw it in a hopper at /warp News! We also appreciate any feedback you have for this first issue, including suggestions for new material that could be added, things that could be changed, or other comments or criticism you may have. Several things we were considering adding include a featured build of the week to showcase a cool build that a player on I-S made and/or a 'Staff Member of the Week' to commemorate an outstanding staff during the week. Thanks for reading!

STAFF NEWS/UPCOMING EVENTS

The server staff udpate is this coming Friday, the 20th.  Get your applications in as soon as possible.  We encourage everyone to apply, as everyone has an equal chance.  One tip you won't get anywhere else for your app: length matters.  Although many players choose to go quality over quantity, how much are you really telling us about you with two sentences?  Not much.  Be sure to write a lot and include as much detail as possible.

We've had some issues with players duping lately.  The staff would like to remind players that duplicating unlegit items from creative mode is not allowed, and the punishments are severe.

The Drop Party will be held at its usual time of 4:30 PM Central Time at /warp DP on Sunday so we hope to see you there!


PLAYER ANNOUNCEMENTS

ilovecreepers22 - Merry Wether is now open. It is the supplier of Phoenix Town. This is new and fresh so mail ilovecreepers22 to get on the list and put a 5 tall 3x3 on your house/shop. You must live in Phoenix Town to get on the list. Ask goldninja to join the town; the billboard will be at the /warp of the town name /warp phoenix

Goldninja - I would like to remind everyone that glowstone is a cash material. 1 Glowstone = $100.

Rro - I have just finished my awesome build /warp helixia check it out.


ANSWERS TO PLAYERS' BURNING QUESTIONS FOR THE STAFF TEAM

Goldninja asked "There have been a spread of spawners and spawners value have lowered, why is that?"

Vicirator replied "I could go into a whole lesson on economics for this, but I'll just give you the short version.  The more of an item there is on the market, the cheaper it will sell for, because it will be easier to obtain, which drives down the price.  Without the spawner sell sign at /warp shop, the price is no longer artificially held at $15,000, allowing the price of the spawners to fluctuate based on the number there are on the open market.  If you're still not sure why the price dropped, search up 'supply and demand principle' on google."

Kakashi asked "Can /warp kakashi be the build of the week? xD What are the chances? 10-100 O.o?"

Vicirator replied "Unfortunately, /warp kakashi cannot be build of the week, because /warp mansion5 is the build of the week this week.  Assuming that 10 was the lowest value on your 10-100 scale, it's a 10.  However, it's definitely in the running for next week!"

Anonymous asked "Can I get one small pizza with extra cheese and one large drink to go?"

Vicirator replied "If you were looking for a pizza delivery service, you came to the wrong place."


QUESTION OF THE WEEK

Who is your favorite staff member, and why?  Answer in the comments below!


STAFF OF THE WEEK

This week's staff of the week is Deyaz!  Deyaz was especially productive this week, as he was the most active staff.

DECLASSIFIED

So, you're probably wondering what's been going on with the server these past few days, right?  Well, as it turns out, the root of these problems was the now infamous name-change update.  Despite being promised a smooth transition by the Mojang staff from old names to new names, in reality, the new names caused a lot of problems with server plugins.  Although ranks and bans weren't affected, the region plugin was damaged the most.  However, despite this, the staff worked tirelessly to recreate the vast majority of regions on the server using the new and improved regions plugin.  Fortunately, the worst is over and most of the major bugs caused by the name changes have been fixed, although we will continue to work out minor ones in the coming weeks.  We want to thank everyone for their patience through these past few days and assure you all that it can only get better from here.

STAFF NEWS/UPCOMING EVENTS

The server staff udpate is this coming Friday, the 13th.  Despite this ominous and usually 'unlucky' date (Friday the 13th), hopefully the staff team will be welcoming a new member after the update ends that weekend.  We encourage everyone to apply, as everyone has an equal chance.  One tip you won't get anywhere else for your app: length matters.  Although many players choose to go quality over quantity, how much are you really telling us about you with two sentences?  Not much.  Be sure to write a lot and include as much detail as possible.

If you have a region that you need protected, or find an unprotected region, contact staff immediately using /helpop!!!

The Drop Party will be held at its usual time of 4:30 PM Central Time at /warp DP on Sunday so we hope to see you there!


PLAYER ANNOUNCEMENTS

ET_Pulz suggests that the monster spawner sell sign be added back to /warp shop.

Ninjalox2 would like to remind everyone that he still exists, despite public opinion insinuating the contrary.


ANSWERS TO PLAYERS' BURNING QUESTIONS FOR THE STAFF TEAM

Anonymous asked "Can you protect my home?"

Vicirator replied "Head Mods and up can protect regions.  When you are online, ask on /helpop for a staff member to come and protect your home."

MarsMoon1 asked "Why was the server down the other day?"

Vicirator replied "I explained it in the first paragraph of this article.  If you have any further questions, ask a staff member on the server or on skype."

Anonymous asked "When is the date of the next staff update?"

Vicirator replied "The next update is Friday the 13th.  The date is always listed at /warp staff."

Judging by the lack of signed books, I'd like to encourage you to sign your submitted books so that you can get credited with your questions.


QUESTION OF THE WEEK

What do you think is the best way to make money on the server?  Do you farm cactus?  Run a store?  Sell valuable items?  How did you make your millions, or, how do you plan to make them?  Answer in the comments below!


STAFF OF THE WEEK

This week was a special week for staff, as everyone worked very hard to reprotect all the regions on the server and deal with the struggles created by the name change update.  Fortunately, the team prevailed and the majority of the problems have been fixed.  Because of this success, all the staff deserve staff of the week this week.  Special shoutout to ArthurTheWizard, DoubleT88, and Travizzz for their roles in helping with protecting regions. 


FEATURED BUILD OF THE WEEK

The featured build this week is /warp Estate, built by MrGlimmer and Vicirator with input from several other players as well.
