Welcome to Everneth!

Everneth is a server with one vision. Grow a core community of friends playing Vanilla Survival Minecraft and become one of the largest whitelisted communities in the world. Most of us came here from other servers due to critical issues with the management of the community and part of the foundation of Everneth seeks to correct these issues to become a growth-driven server with streamlined staffing, autonomous decision making, and actively encourage community engagement.

High Council Changes

For a while now, there have been 2 Dukes at the upper echelons of the HC. This was never the intended purpose of Duke as it is meant to be a singular position as second in command of staff and not co-inhabited. As such both rolo_ and GT have agreed to voluntarily descend to the rank of Count for the time being. Dependent on the changes coming in Term 7, I may be faced with re-selecting one of them to regain the role of Duke. For now however, there is no inherent need for a Duke at this time.

Community Updates

Raffle and Voting

The first monthly raffle was a huge success resulting in 271 entries into the contest. With the success of this raffle, I will continue supporting the raffle monetarily. In case you missed it, the first winner of the raffle was none other than Mr_Yogi_Bear. Please drop a quick congrats to Yogi and thanks to all who participated in October! Let's keep this up and keep our community growing!

 

Map Longevity Survey

On November 20th, 2017, I posted a survey in discord asking for feedback on keeping the map alive for much longer than are usual time. Most of our maps last roughly 6 months and we would like to aim for a year and follow through with that for the first time in our communities history. With that I will provide some data collected from this survey and let you all know where we are headed from here.

  1. The top 3 picks for top priority projects were the Modern City Megabuild with 62.2% favor, Spawn Subway with 48.6%, and then PVP arena with 40.5%. So expect to see these 3 projects scheduled more frequently in the calendar.
  2. With the implementation of the community projects, the average response was roughly 67.8% somewhat confident in these changes, 18.9% very confident, 10.2% somewhat not confident, and  3.1% not confident at all.
  3. Out of 22 responses at the time of this writing, staff will be investigating these ideas
    1. Tour videos
    2. More frequent small events
    3. Bring back weekly minigames
    4. Customization achievements/advancements
    5. Weekly challenges that record the top players on a sidebar scoreboard
    6. RP events using Dungeons & Dragons style characters that players create. Tellraw lore/interaction and Summon'd entities for events
    7. Promote community based projects
    8. Better/More frequent vote reminders for growth. reduce pings
    9. Resurrect staff from the dead
  4. Out of 37 responses, the top 3 events that were requested to happen more frequently were (in order of 1st to 3rd in votes) the following:
    1. PVP Battle Tournaments (56.8% response)
    2. Spleef Tournaments (45.9% response)
    3. (Tied) Generic RP Events & Archery Tournaments (37.8% response)
  5. With the implementation of more frequent events varying in size, over all confidence was roughly 63.9% very confident, 27.8% somewhat confident, and 8.3% somewhat not confident.
  6. For the reintroduction of a spleef league, overall reaction to this was somewhat split between Maybe at 48.6%, Yes at 40.5%, and No being 10.8%.
  7. Overall wish list ideas that I intend on investigating are the following
    1. PVP battles that involve invisibility
    2. Custom Advancements
    3. Underground labyrinths in the game district
    4. Haunted mansion as a tour or rollercoaster
    5. Rollercoasters
    6. Ice Boat Races

Community Projects

This is an attempt at starting large projects that the community can contribute to as a whole. These projects change each week so that we don't get burnt out with one project in particular and consistently get some change happening each week. These projects will be coordinated by the the Ministry of the Interior and Parliament (staff) and will be led by Kathi and Earthcube. For more detailed information on the community projects and how they will be handled, please check out this announcement:

 

Server Updates

The decision and discussion behind moving to Sponge is still very theoretical is not remotely close to being feasible at this time. The major features/plugins we need don't quite line up just yet. Its something along the lines of this:

  • Map - There is a solution available but it is NOT real time. That said, in-game signs on this other map can appear on the map which could be used for base marking
  • Discord Link - There is a solution available much like the current.
  • Permissions - There is a solution available much like the current.
  • WorldGuard/Edit - There is currently no solution available to setup commands restriction by region

Until these core requirements are met, we're going to stick with the battle-tested spigot. If you know of a plugin for sponge that's stable and offers command restriction by region, feel free to DM me on discord or PM on site.

In Summary

In case you missed it, this is a quick tl;dr of recent events:

  • We recently had our map reset on October 1st, 2017
  • There is now a raffle every month for those who vote for our community
  • We are starting community project builds that rotate every week
  • A couple editions of Roleplay are on the way
  • A survey happened to get your feedback and it was a huge success
  • There is an election going on. Go vote!!!
