This is probably the largest project that I've had to work on for the server and I'm proud of how unique it is. Right from the start I'd like to mention some people who contributed ideas to this.
@Ncelle - Thank you for the original idea of allowing players to set their roleplay role in a much more convenient manner @Alygator1 - Thank you for the idea of utilising a scoreboard to view the roles of all players @Aaron - Thank you for being the bug catcher in this whole project @Aye_It's_Liv Thank you for the testing the sign system @144 - Thank you for the idea of allowing players to disable receiving requests regardless of whether they have an active roleplay name
In this post I'll be outlining how to use the new features.
It's been some time since any server updates have been posted but I'd like to announce that a new scoreboard has been designed for the server since the current one is quite old and doesn't show relevant information. This will be put on the live server on next restart. The scoreboard will now include information such as the total player count, report ratio, number of warnings and the amount of worldedit time you have remaining. The scoreboard should now look something like this:
Small changes to note would be that the server name appears as the scoreboard title, "Channel" has been renamed to "Chat", the colour of the chat you're in will change depending on which one you're in. If you're in global it will show in grey, if you're in local it will show in yellow, if you're in advertising it will show in aqua, if you're in server it will show in gold...
I'd like to announce that we're working on an alternative application to Minechat which should allow you to speak on the server when you're away from a computer. We're interested in what people think the application should be named and the features you're interested in! Feel free to mention your complaints about Minechat so that we can see what issues need to be addressed with our own application
This app will work on other servers as well and will not only be an exclusive CF application. So the name idea does not have to have anything cf related in it.
Remember, we need a name for the application before we do anything so post your name idea below.
We've made it easier to get confirmed reports. There's a lot more staff members online with the recent promotions so I agree that it's a little unfair to expect people to raise their report ratio when a staff member is likely to manually mute the user instead of using the report. Now, if there's an active report and a staff member mutes the player for the same message that was reported, it will count as confirmed. This still means that you would have to report the message before a staff member punishes the user but that should be possible considering it's faster to report a message compared to a staff member who has to go through an extra step where they must input the mute reason. The reports have been reset meaning that all confirmed and dismissed reports have been removed, this is the perfect chance to improve your report ratio starting from now as we'll...
Roleplay names have now been added to the server! This is a command where you are able to set a roleplay name using /rp <name> where it will display your roleplay name in local chat every time you speak. For example doing /rp Bob would display (Bob): in gray every time I sent a message in local. This makes roleplaying a lot easier as you don't have to type out your name manually or have to paste your name every time you want to speak. To remove your roleplay name you can use /rpname reset. The names retain cross-server and are automatically removed when you disconnect from the server. We hope that this feature makes roleplaying a better experience for everyone.

How does it work?
To request a song go to the #requests channel and type in /play <YoutubeLink>
If this is the first time the song has ever been requested then a staff member will need to approve it before it plays.
If the song you request has been approved in the past then it will play as soon as you use the command.
If the song you request has been rejected because it doesn't follow the rules then it will not play and you will be given a message letting you know that the request was denied.
Staff have access to the #approval channel where they are given two options, they can either accept the song request by clicking on the thumbs up emoji or reject the song request by clicking on the...
