Features


Welcome to CreativeFun,

a server dedicated to ensuring that people of all ages and background are able
to safely engage themselves in the countless activities available on our server.


This thread will be explaining the vast amount of features we provide that sets us apart from many other servers.
It can get quite overwhelming when joining the server for the first time.

Even for people that have been playing for years, it is likely that you may not be aware of some of the features that we provide.
Use this thread as a handbook to learn or help others learn a feature they may not be aware of or are struggling with.



Reporting a player
You are able to click on a message in chat in order to report it. If you find a message that violates the server rules, we highly encourage you to report it. The spoiler below contains in depth details about reporting.
  • Note, the message I'm reporting in this example is not against the rules and is only being used as an example
  • In the screenshot below, a player can be seen saying "i am guys as well" so you can click on the message to report it like this:


  • This will bring up a menu where you can either confirm the report or cancel it in case you clicked on the message by accident. The username of the player will be highlighted in red for the message you are about to report and you'll notice that there are also previous messages shown from the user. The previous messages are shown to give staff context.





  • That's pretty much it, you have successfuly reported the message.

  • How do I know what happened to my report?
    If your report is resolved you will receive a message in chat saying "Your report on <username> was RESOLVED by <staffusername>"
    If your report is rejected you will receive a message in chat saying "Your report on <username> was rejected by <staffusername>"
    If your report is dealt with while you are offline you will be sent mail with a notification about what happened to your report, to view mail use /mail read.


  • What is a report ratio?
    You'll notice that when your report has been dealt with, the scoreboard on the right hand side of the screen will update the number.
    The amount of resolved and rejected reports you make is saved. The report ratio plays a major role in becoming promoted to staff, this is because having a high amount of resolved reports with a minimal amount of rejected reports proves that you have a good understanding of the rules.


  • How to view every report I've ever made?
    You can use /history which will bring up a GUI with every report you've ever made. If you believe that a report was dealt with incorrectly then you can take a screenshot of the report and post it on forums. You'll notice that when you hover over a report it will display the status of it.


  • Why do some of my reports show as deleted?
    There are 5 different states a report can be in - New, Resolved, Warned, Rejected and Deleted.
    "New" appears when the report has not been dealt with yet.
    "Resolved" appears when a staff member has reviewed the report and muted the user.
    "Warned" appears when a staff member has reviewed the report and warns the user.
    "Rejected" appears when a staff member has reviewed the report and believes reported message does not violate the rules.
    "Deleted" appears if the user you reported is muted for a different message from the one you reported.

Chat channels
There are 3 chat channels that are accessible to players. The chat channels you can speak in are as follows;

  • Global chat
    (To speak in global chat use /g or /global. The global channel is the main chat which can be viewed by all players regardless of what server you sent the message on. Messages sent in this channel will have the prefix [ G ])


  • Advertising chat
    (To speak in advertising chat use /a or /advertising. The advertising channel is where players advertise their roleplays and plots. Messages sent in this channel will have the prefix [ A ])

  • Local chat

Plot Announcements

Setting a home
To set a home location use /sethome <name>
To remove a home use /delhome <name>
To view your homes use /homes
Homes work differently on here compared to other servers, you can customise the name of your home and players will be able to teleport to your home by using /home <name>. This is useful for advertising a roleplay that you've made because all you need to do is use the advertising chat channel and tell players to use your home to join your roleplay.


Grief and Rollback
To get the inspect tool use /inspect
To rollback grief use /rollback or /rb

  • The picture below shows a build has been partially destroyed by hand from someone who isn't the plot owner. In this situation, you'd want to get the inspect tool out by using /inspect.





  • By right clicking on a block that was right next to a block that was removed, we can see that "Ecoya changed WOOD to AIR 1m 44s ago" At this point you should remove the user who griefed you from your plot as a safety measure. If someone created something on your plot, you can left click on the build to see the username of the player that placed the block.



  • Now that we know who griefed, we need to undo the grief which is known as a "rollback". As seen in the picture below, I've input /rb Ecoya 500 10m.
  • The "500" is the radius we're checking.
  • The "10m" is how far back we want to go.
  • This will undo everything that Ecoya has destroyed within the radius of 500 blocks.



  • That is pretty much it, in the picture below you'll see that the build has been restored.



Radius can be specified as such:
  • 100 = Rollback within 100 blocks from where you're standing
  • 200 = Rollback within 200 blocks from where you're standing
  • 300 = Rollback within 300 blocks from where you're standing
  • 400 = Rollback within 400 blocks from where you're standing

Time can be specified as such:
  • 1s = Rollback 1 second ago
  • 1m = Rollback 1 minute ago
  • 1h = Rollback 1 hour ago
  • 1d = Rollback 1 day ago
In an ideal situation, if you are griefed you should contact a Moderator who is online so that they can inspect the grief. When a Moderator has sufficient proof of grief through using /inspect they will ban the griefer. Once the user is banned, you can undo the grief or allow the Moderator to undo the grief in case you're feeling nervous.

Build Contest
We host build contests every 1 or 2 months and information about an ongoing contest can be found on the "Build Contests" section on forums here: Build Contests. The initial post about the ongoing build contest will explain to make a submission. Three judges are chosen from the community and will rate all of the build submissions at the end of the month. First place receives a $35 rank/upgrade, second place receives a $25 rank/upgrade and third place receives a $10 rank/upgrade. You may also gift the rank you won to a friend if you wish.

Scoreboard
The scoreboard contains a lot of useful information such as:

  • The chat channel you are currently in
  • The player count
  • The server you're currently on
  • The amount of cf coins you have, your report ratio
  • Amount of times you've been muted
  • The amount of times you've been warned
  • The amount of worldedit time you have remaining before you need to vote again



Voting
To vote on the server use /vote
  • When using the command it will bring up a link in chat, click on the link to be taken to the voting portal.

  • Clicking on that link should take you to this page. Click on the blue buttons on the right and they will open up a website where you will need to enter your minecraft username for your vote to be sent.


  • You can vote on up to 8 sites per day allowing you to have a total of 24 hours of WorldEdit.

  • What do I get for voting?
    You get 3 hours of WorldEdit per vote on each link.
    You'll be given 2 CF Coins for every link you vote on. These coins can be used to purchase more plots in /shop.

Buying more plots
To open up the in-game shop use /shop
  • When using the command it should bring up a GUI, hovering over the grass block will show that you're about to purchase a new plot.

  • You'll need 48 CF Coins to purchase a new plot, you can CF Coins by voting on each link everyday.
