We are terminating the forums

We are terminating the forums

News, Official, Transformation 2020
The WolvHaven Forums - originally created to be the central hub for discussion has served its purpose well. The forums bonded the community through conversations and discussions that were posted there. However, like all things, it eventually must come to an end. Since the introduction of the WolvHaven Discord on the 23 January 2016, the function of the forums has been practically replaced with discord. Usage of the forums is at an all time low and there has not been any sign of its usage increasing ever since. Hence, we are taking the decision to terminate the forums. We asked you guys in a poll earlier this year to gather any concerns which you may have regarding the termination of the forums - and whether you even wanted the forums…

Heads Galore!

Heads Galore!

News
The custom head - an amazing way to add more details to your builds. However, we all know the pain of getting them. Requesting for an admin to place down a command block and then copy pasting a give command is tedious and rather inconvenient. That's why we've implemented a new plugin called HeadsInventory! The plugin allows you to easily get heads for use within the server from popular minecraft head websites such as freshcoal, mineskin and minecraft-heads! Note: Minecraft-heads linkage is currently broken. The plugin developer is working on a fix for this. But most essential blocks are available from freshcoal. Commands You can access these commands as long as you are a citizen or above! /headsinv cat: Opens the category UI. /headsinv category <name>: Display heads from a category./headsinv category all: Displays all heads from categories./headsinv search <searchterm>: Search for heads in the FreshCoal heads database./headsinv msearch <searchterm>: Search for heads…

Architect Rank Reform

Architect Rank Reform

News
Since its introduction in 2012, the Architect rank has been the primary aspect of the server to recognize the talents of individuals with good or exceptional building skills. As time goes on however, administration and management for the rank and its holders have gone haywire. Informal schemes introduced along the way without proper documentation such as the temporary architect scheme have caused dissatisfaction among current architects and have also led to some cases where temporary holders of the rank abused its powers to work on their own projects instead of the projects that were assigned to them. Hence, reforms to the architect rank are needed and will be coming soon as part of Transformation 2020. Criteria for architects to be revised The current criteria for architects are to be revised…

Changes to server access

News
Hello! WolvHaven has always enjoyed the continued support of all of our members and we are very appreciative of that. However, the time has come WolvHaven to start to find new sources of income in order to stay online. As a result, we, therefore, regret to announce that we will be charging a recurring fee for access to WolvHaven. All money collected from the fees will go directly to keeping our server online and further perks will be given to paying members. Apart from that, we will also be announcing a brand new rank system but more on that later. Let's get on with what most of you are wondering; what are the fees? Fees and details Standard Access Local WolvHavener US$6.99 for 1 month That's US$6.99 a month! US$13.37 for…

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…
