SHA FACTIONS PVE (Workinprogres) Looking for shopkeepers and helpers

For the past like 5-4 months I’m guessing, I’ve been at work slowly adding to my server that I’m hoping will be ready in a few months. I’ve decided to start allowing some people to build in 21x61 (1,281 blocks) plots building isn’t enabled unless you have a protected area under your name or you are admin. Plots will definitely be reduced significantly soon, because they are massive vertical rectangle shaped plots. This server will be a survival factions server soon, and these plots will be rented out below spawn around the subway being dug out for a fair amount of coins, that can be earned by selling items in shops, but owners will be required to possibly be a member of the discord server preferably, and if I have a lot of trouble with these plots and these can be kept if you commit to community services on the server regularly, or rent a space paying with plat coins or tasks. There will be ways around spending time off the server, if you are on the discord and announce your absence preferably, but with block heads server communication only I can’t promise anything. Plots will be cleaned up after a short period or being unlocked for people to loot if the owners can’t sustain at least a small helpful shop, with good income or community services. I aim to make this a fun server where any player can have fun and learn the basis of blockheads, I am almost always ready to assist people who need help from discord, and this server will have a great system for not only keeping away players that are toxic or ruin the game, but to fairly unban everyone to give them another chance possibly monthly or weekly and if listed on our exclusion list if you’re naughty enough, and also I’m wondering if I can report players anywhere for like hacking and greifing spawn or for bypassing IP bans. But these players on the list will get banned again on both of my servers every time I clear the blacklist. And also there is a link to my discord on my servers on my blockheads servers if you would like to check out my factions server(SHA FACTIONS PVE) and leave any suggestions or comments, which would be appreciated the discord server is also a work in progress. I might read over this and write more tomorrow. :wave:

Edit: don’t even think of joining the discord server unless you’re 13+ years old!
You will get banned from my discord server and possibly discord for even joking about being under discords age restriction.

You’re not even allowed to be on Discord anyways if you’re under 13 years old, so that hopefully shouldn’t be a problem.

A lot of players on block heads are under 13 so there will be a few
Edit:
I’ve also made it so you can only join with a verified email so that should keep some out

Get altdentifier if they can’t complete a basic verification they shouldn’t be in there lol

We don’t permit the collection and storage of personal information for users. Email addresses come under that heading. The reason for this is we are aware that underage players do engage in multiplayer gaming with the game, and under child protection laws across most jurisdictions the collection of information of underage players is illegal without parental permission.

Might look into it

If you’re talking about the IP list no one else has access to it apart from me, which is just like the logs and I only intend to copy and paste it into the blacklist on my owner portal so I don’t see how I could be doing anything wrong, especially since they’re the ones getting banned for committing petty crimes, and few for excessive harrassment and spam.
Edit:
Also you can choose to use an email on discord it’s just limiting
And also you get a pop up with view or download for logs so

If you gather any personal information about underage players you are in breach of the law. Only allowing users with a confirmed email address implies that you are in breach of this law. If you are breaching this law with our younger customers that is a problem. It might seem dumb, but child protection laws all have very sound reasons behind them.

Can I just put a warning about the discord only allowing users with a verified discord account and asking that they ask permission from their parents to make a discord or add an email. no one can actually see your email on discord or anything and also if I can’t have an IP list to ban why do I get prompted with an option to download or view the logs?

You will need to explain the IP question. I’m not sure why you think having an IP list is an issue. I don’t like people publishing the IPs of other players, but it’s not personal information, as it’s almost always dynamic. Your router loses the lease on the IP, and is allocated a new one next time it shakes hands.

An IP is actually very personal because it can be used to find someones exact location but my list is safe from my members viewing or tampering with in a discord channel that only permits myself and I have no intention of sharing or using it for anything other than to add new ips and copy and paste the list onto the blacklist but I don’t see how me having these is any different to having a saved copy of the logs or the logs existing in general Idk I just wanna know if I can do this if I put up a clear warning about it on my welcome message

False. IPs offer only approximate location discovery… and can be 100% wrong. I just looked up my current IP, and according to those tools, I am in New York City… I’m not. I’m at home in Colorado. No, I’m not using a vpn.

Normally it’s closer to the truth, at least getting the state right, but it frequently puts me in the wrong city.

Edit: tried a few other services, looks like the one I usually use has gone bad. The others put me in Colorado, the closest within 10 miles of my house, but still a fair bit off.

You’re talking about public IPs, right? Not private IPs?

Public means visible to the game. Private means on internal network, e.g. 192.168.0.1.

IP is not personal information, because it cannot pinpoint your location. Please note that a city is not a location in this sense. It’s too general, because you are in the company of everyone else who lives in the same town or city as you.

mine shows my location if I track it so I just assumed
Must be the way my wifi works

Nope. All anyone outside your ISP can find is the city you’re in, and that’s not always correct. It depends on your service provider. Sometimes I have an IP that is supposedly in Auckland, some times it correctly shows me being in Napier. If you connect from a static in a school or some other organisation they can tell the organisation, assuming hostnames are in service. That’s it though.

I can’t find the discord sever link

I can’t put links in posts unfortunately but I’ll put a link at the bottom of my welcome message
Edit: there was already a link but yeah it’s the very last one also this is the invite code c2vyZjC
