We've recently decided to revamp Creative1 by deleting the map and changing the size to 512x512 like the other creative servers. Creative1 has always been the server with the lowest player count for a while so we've decided that this is the best course of action to take. This gives people even more building space in case you've hit the 3 plot per server limit. I'd like to apologise to the people who had spent time on their plots however this will be beneficial in the long run for everyone.
That's all for now, the next post on the website will be about a new feature that has been in development for some time. The update will be labelled as "Plot Staff" and will improve the roleplaying experience on the server
I'd just like to personally thank everyone who submitted a build for this competition, this is the first time in a while where we've hosted an official server competition and it's nice to see everyone getting involved. We had a lot of great submissions but in the end there can only be three winners! Don't worry though, if you didn't win there's always next time. We plan to do another build competition in a few months with some new judges and additional changes such as the possibility of working as a team, recruiting people for your team on the website and being able to split the rewards between each other! This will all be explained when the next competition will start. I'd like to thank our judges @Darlxx, @CookehCrumb and @ThtAwkwardMoment for doing an amazing job at organising the competition and all the entries.
It's time to host a server wide build contest! This contest is open to all players including staff.
The top 3 finalists of the contest will be awarded with a rank or rank upgrade depending on what their current rank is. If you're a $100 donator rank and you win, you'll be given the option to choose who you want to give the rank to. First place will receive $35, second place will receive $25 and third place will receive $10. The contest ends on December 1st and a home page post will mention the winners and showcase their builds.
How to participate?
When you have finished your build you need to make a post on this thread with your username, the server it was built on and the plot ID. You can find your plot id by using /plot info
Following up with the recent roleplay update I've decided to add "Plot Announcements" as a new feature to the server.
You can use /announce <message> to broadcast a message to everyone on the plot, this can be useful for roleplays and minigames.
Features and limitations listed below:
Must be the plot owner to use the command
1 minute cooldown
Can only color the announcements if you are a donator $10+
Can click on the message in chat to report it in case people are breaking the rules
Can disable viewing announcements on the screen by going to /settings
How to color announcements
Donators are able to color their announcements by using color codes as shown below:

In this post I'll be outlining how to use the new features.
How to request a role?
Use /role <name> to send a request to the plot owner if they have a roleplay name active. You must also have a roleplay name in order to send a request. You can also create a role sign which will allow players to click on the sign to request the role but this will be explained further below the post. In this example the user has clicked on the demon role sign which has automatically sent a request to the plot owner.
How to accept, deny or block a request?
When a role request is sent the plot owner will be given a message where they are given the option to accept, deny or block the request. You must click on the buttons in chat in order to make an action...
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.
