Introduction
« on: March 07, 2017, 08:40:35 PM »
Hello ladies and gents, I'm Lothaelian but you can just call me Loth for short.  I was recently taken on as a Administrator by the Cakeface Network.  Cake_Lancelot has brought me in to help further the servers progression.  I have a background in server management and together I wholeheartedly believe we can make Cakeface great again.  I won't give away too much but lets just say it won't be like last time.  The new Cakeface will be unlike any Cakeface season you have ever seen.  While nothing is set in stone we do have a date as to when we would like to launch to revamp.  Back to the introduction though,  ;D .  I'm 17, a junior in highschool, and I live in the United States.  In my free time I play CS:GO and Minecraft.  I enjoy gaming, lifting weights, and overall fitness.  I will be enlisting in the US army in a few months and will ship out in about a year or year and a half.  Back to the server thought, stay tuned for updates in the future.  Once we have a good idea of what needs to be worked on and added we will release and official launch date.  Catch ya later  8)  -Loth

I think moderation is a big problem with what made people lose interest. Moderation was too biased and not strict. At times it was all punishment and no reinforcement. Other times it was the opposite. People began to dislike the moderation team, and for good reason. Problems weren't being fixed, and quite honestly the number of moderators (helpers, mods, and admins) was too much. Start enforcing rules. Start punishing people. Some people with helper and mod privileges thought it was a free pass to do whatever they wanted. That's what the problem was. You don't need to keep adding things. Start taking things away. Start taking away privileges  and carefully consider who and who not to put in a position of power. That's what I think this server needs. Not a new plugin or marketplace. More moderation, but less people. That's what will make this server great again.

Thank you for the input, and I kid you not the very first thing I did once receiving my permissions was demote all current staff except for Cake, myself, and Ender_Wizard.  I agree the staff positions were given away to the wrong people in the past and in the future I will have a new screening process which will determine which players are fit to become staff.  Once the revamp happens we will start taking helper applications.
