So if you've been on the server lately, you may have noticed that we've been making some big changes in who is doing what.
First, we added some new admins. You know them in game as: MathChamp82 LadyCath PunkRockFerret
They have all been very patient and helpful with anyone that needs helping and have been proven their worth as SrHelpers for a while now. They are still learning the ropes of being an admin (trust me, it takes time) so if you ask them for something they are not yet ready to tackle, please be patient as they are learning some things still. All in all though, they're doing great and eager to help you all!
Sparkle1970 is the mother of one of our best Jr Helpers, DonnyD and therefore has a great teacher on how to not only play the game but to be able to help others at the same time.
Both of these players have been super helpful, friendly and positive for months, working very hard to earn this. ElektricCreeper in particular wanted it bad and kept asking for a while... thus prolonging the honour. But once he stopped asking and just went back to being himself, he proved that being helpful truly is in his nature. bb1201, despite having a lot of adversity in his life has proven that not only will nothing hold him back but he'll continue to wear a smile on his face as he gives new players tours of the server and helps any time someone asks.
So there you have it. Lots going on! Lots of great people doing great things. And best of all, lots more help for those who need it... including me!
Please leave them a congrats below or in game. They all worked hard to earn their titles.
Last night some of our players noticed that each time a player joins into the game, it tells us admins if they have any previous bans on other servers.
They started talking about whether or not they've ever been banned before, here or elsewhere and what things they've done to be muted, jailed or banned....
This lead to the question: "Am I a bad person?"
I know, what they really mean to ask is "does it show that I have any bans?" but the phrasing of a question is so very important. Especially a question about yourself that will very strongly impact the way you look at yourself.
One thing I want to make very clear is, doing a bad thing, does not make you a bad person. We have all done bad things. It's how we learn. Whether you didn't know it was a bad thing at the time or you were having a bad day or it was simply a mistake... that's a part of life.
So what does make you a bad person? Doing bad things and not feeling bad about it. Not saying your sorry. It's doing bad things, getting in trouble for it and then going right back out to do it again. It's doing bad things for the sake of doing them or worse, in an attempt to hurt or anger someone else.
If you do a bad thing and learn from that and apologize for that and do your best to not do that bad thing ever again... that not only means that you're not a bad person but that you really are a great person. An awesome person!
Guilt is not a weakness. It's a tool that your are lucky enough to be born with that will forever keep you pushing yourself to be better than you were the day before.
Apologize, say you're sorry and really be sorry. Feel bad about it. But don't ever think that you are bad because of it. You're a better person today because of it. So long as you just keep trying to do better the next time.
