Let’s Talk: Backseat Moderating

News
1 January 2018 - Let's Talk: Backseat Moderation   WolvHaven has been running for over 6 years and has seen many people come and go. However, in recent years, a new phenomenon has landed on our shores and has remained etched in our community - backseat moderating. Backseat Disruptive & Substandard Moderating (BDSM/Backseat Moderating) and how it hurts the server Let's all admit it. Some WolvHaveners have a serious problem. It's called Backseat Disruptive & Substandard Moderation. In this post, we will discuss what backseat moderating is, why you should not participate in it and the implications it may have on you if you do participate. What is backseat moderating?

Changes to verbal warnings 2018

Changes to verbal warnings 2018

News
Let's start 2018 by setting things right. With effect from 1 January 2018, some changes will be made to verbal warnings for veteran players on the server. Staff have noticed that players - especially the veterans have been breaking the rules at a higher frequency since 2017. This is largely due to the leniency that is offered to players who are ranked citizen and above, leading to many thinking that they will always be able to get away with breaking the rules. We want to put a stop to this and we also expect our veteran players to display a standard fit for veterans. Happy new year. Let's work towards a better, more welcoming community for all.

Honestus Esse…

Honestus Esse…

News
Honestus Esse is an initiative by the WolvHaven staff to make members more aware of their actions and how it affects the community. What does "Honestus Esse" Mean? "Honestus Esse" means "to be honest" in Latin and we would like all people to express their honest opinions in this activity. What is it about? Similar to the craze over anonymous feedback tools such as sayat.me and sarahah a few months ago, we want to provide a way for all members of the community to provide anonymous feedback to each other. You can send feedback to anyone - even members of staff and SilverWolv himself (we don't bite or ban. really. so long as you follow the rules) Why was it setup? In the WolvHaven Demographic Census 2017, several of you…

Extended Server Downtime November 2017

Extended Server Downtime November 2017

Official
The server is currently experiencing extended downtime due to unforeseen circumstances. Upon further investigation, the server will remain down until 12 November 2017. Afterwhich we will be migrating to another server which was purchased earlier. What happened? TLDR; Currently the server is running on nix's existing server which was already paid for (but he had no use for it, so WolvHaven is using it). However, this came with a clause where there would be a bandwidth limitation. It was expected that it would be sufficient. However, this was not the case. As a result of a recent DDoS attack, the server reached its bandwidth limitation and as of now, nothing can be done about it until the limit resets on 12 November 2017. Whats being done about it? Upon restoration…

World of Color 1.12.1

News
BRINGING COLOR TO WOLVHAVEN On 5 September 2017, WolvHaven went down for regular scheduled maintenance. However, things got a bit colorful while the maintenance was being carried out. As tests previously had proved successful, it was decided that this opportunity would be taken to upgrade the server to 1.12.1 - providing a surprise for all WolvHaveners waking up or arriving back home from school. Here are some changes everyone should take note of: Colorful blocks and cool jazz from the minecraft 1.12.1 update concrete, glazed terracotta and more Removal of the microblocks plugin This plugin no longer works and would have no meaning keeping it on the server.
