With 2017, we are introducing a new parliamentary system which involves political parties and general elections.
Let’s let this handy dandy infographic do the trick 🙂
As you may know, WolvHaven has been selecting and appointing its members of staff through the use of elections since 2012. While the election system has been constantly changed and optimized in order to ensure that it works best in WolvHaven’s interests, it has unfortunately reached its maximum potential.
The election system has served us well – it ensured that everyone had a say in the people who they want to moderate and look after the server and enabled the council to have better insights to support decision making. (The results of the election are not always definite – any member of council may call for a vote to reject the outcome of the election)
However, times change – and so must our staff appointment model. Therefore, we will be introducing the Experience Based Learning (EBL) Model. Here’s how it works:
We were alerted to a user on the forum spamming attachments ending with .pdf
Please do NOT download any of the content. If you have downloaded or opened any of the attachments, please remove them from your computer and run a security scan on your computer as soon as possible.
We have removed all 50 files from our system and removed the user and his/her posts on the forums
Stay safe on the forums
– Do not reveal your personal information or the personal information of others
– When in doubt, do not open or download any attachments
– Use a strong password for your account that is different from other websites you use
We have added all users who we are able to idenfity into the confirmed members group in the forums. This will allow us to quickly sift out any potential spam accounts that do not use weird domains (such as gmail/hotmail) and remove them from the site
Please help to confirm if you have seen any people by the name of
on the server so that I can add them into the confirmed member group if necessary.
All other accounts that are not in the Confirmed Members group have been deleted. Should your account be deleted, you will have to register again on the forums. Sorry for the inconvenience
When registering on the forums, please use your minecraft account’s username so that we will be able to identify you easier.
UPDATE: MARCH 2017 – February Moderator Elections has been cancelled

Good luck and may the best candidate win!
As mentioned before, we will be resetting and removing some worlds. In order to facilitate this movement, we will give players at least 1 week to transfer their stuff over to the new resetted worlds. Worldedit will be provided for players transferring builds where required.
Please avoid building/making edits in old Gardellia, Innovate and NewHollow.
We will not be entertaining any late requests. Once the world closes, it is taken off the server for good.
Here is a timeline of how things will go:
5th Jan 2017
Official Announcement of world resets
8th Jan 2017
All worlds will be accessible through [WARP] signs in citizen lobby OR existing portals
Players ranked [Citizen] and above may start transferring their items over into the new worlds. They have:
15th Jan 2017
Termination of the old Gardellia world.
Old gardellia is closed for good.
22nd Jan 2017
Termination of the old Innovate world.
Innovate is closed for good.
29th Jan 2017
Termination of the New Hollow world.
New Hollow is closed for good.
WolvHaven had it’s first parliament/general assembly session for the new year 2017. The parliament/general assembly of WolvHaven is a time where WolvHaveners ranked citizen and above can come together and make suggestions to change the server rules and propose new rules to address problems seen within the server.
When the motion is announced, people take turns to share their opinions and debate about the motion and amendments are made to the motion with regards to the points made in the discussion if the proposer is online and agrees to it.
Here is a summary of the points made this session:
|Motion||Proposed By||Points Made In Discussion||Result|
|Whitelist server at all times||_ezzo||
|Remove a server from mentionable list||spaceInvader11||
|Regulate usage of other server logos on builds||Ninjabob1797||
|Introduce limiations and proceedures for express services||Ninjabob1797||
|Give Higher Council veto powers when bringing a new A-Class/Expessway through existing claimed land.||Minebuilder1223||
|Ban people who bring drama from other servers into WolvHaven||chickenjoshbwak||
|Move WolvHaven into Gardellia||chickenjoshbwak||NIL||WITHDRAWN|
|Automatically unclaim land left after 3 months of inactivity in Gardellia
Hello everyone! Gardellia is now open to the public!
What is Gardellia?
Gardellia is a world with a rail and road network where people can claim areas and build the own towns, cities and settlements – to any style they like as long as it complies with our rules.
Sweet! So how do I get to Gardellia?
You need to be ranked [Citizen] and above to get access to the Gardellia world. Citizens can access gardellia by using /spawn and going through the right most lava portal in the spawn lobby.
I’m in Gardellia. But I cannot build. Help!
All players who wish to build in Gardellia have to go through an application process. This is an added layer of security to ensure that people understand the rules before building in Gardellia. We do this with the aim of protecting people’s towns and cities and keeping rule breakers out as much as possible.

You may view the rules to Gardellia on the rules page. However, for your convenience, its included below.
Can I get worldedit?
You may get worldedits by asking an admin and above to perform the worldedit for you or ask anyone with worldedit access to perform the worldedit for you.
You may apply for worldedit permisisons here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfznXp97pusYFcsEGfQww2Ozry-dcgYFwyz0eqveXW-Dj6GgQ/viewform

TLDR:Hello! It’s me, SilverWolv and I would like to address a little on what had happened to our previous website.
So it all begins with the original website having some issues as it was apparently using a nulled version of xenforo. Xenforo is a forum software which hosted our forum services and costs over hundreds of dollars just to purchase.
The issue with the old website was that there were several loopholes in the system allowing people to do things such as cross scripting and sql injection. The old website was originally supposed to be a test website but eventually grew on to become the main website.
Things were going fine until one day a few months ago, some people reported to me that my account had posted a pornography picture with the caption that p*rnhub was our brand new “sponsor”. Nixholas immediately got to the bottom of the issue and found out it was done through cross site scripting – one of the many loop holes in the nullified version of xenforo. Hoping that this will not happen again, I have been looking for alternatives ever since and the decision was made to switch to this software which was free so we weren’t breaking any laws at the same time too. The best part of all was that we would be able to integrate the forums and the official server website together under one website, welcoming new visitors but at the same time, providing a medium for discussion for the community.
So what happened to the old website? As soon as I found out that this could be done a month ago, I was considering switching over. However, that would mean losing all of our content on the old website. During that period of time as well, I had rejected a ban appeal from DreamBoy1 as it did not meet the standards. As a result, he engaged a hacking team to take down the old website. So our entire website database was corrupted and hence the message “An unexpected database error occurred” on the screen when you visit the website. As the old contents were irretrievable, we decided to move on to this system.
We found out it was him as he spammed comments (which have since been deleted for spam) on WolvHaven’s youtube that we had been hacked by a certain hacking group and even posted the steam community link there. Within the steam community was a post stating that they had managed to undermine the entire WolvHaven website. Also, we noticed that they were open to requests for websites to hack.
Is your data compromised? So far, we can assure you that no data – especially passwords have been compromised. However, it is encouraged that you exercise caution and change your password if necessary.
You will have to create a brand new account on this website. Go to forum >> register. Please also note that it is advised that you use a password different from your other accounts. It doesn’t matter if its WolvHaven or not – it is safer to use a different password for different websites.
The features of this forum system are more limited – but the developers of the system are working on new features at the moment so that is something to look forward to.
Welp. Welcome to your new forum. AGAIN.
Special thanks to nixholas who helped to setup the base website <3
