    There has been escalating drama, bullying, and name calling in the Arenas server. Frankly, I am appalled at the behavior I have seen and I expect better from all those involved. You know who you are.

    I am closing all PvP servers until further notice.

    EDIT: This is not permanent. This is until I see some behavior changes and everyone being treated with respect. Please take this time to re-read our rules and treat your fellow Sandlotians as you want to be treated.

    EDIT 2: It's open again.

    I Can understand This With The New Wave Of people Coming To The Server (Due To Minecraft's Recent Success) There Are Bound To Be People Who Are Mean And Have No Common Sense, To Think That You Can bully People On A Family Friendly Server

    I think this is a good call, I experienced an escalation, too. A break is just what we need. It makes me sad to hear that it got to this point, especially since I love the PVP, but I don’t love arguments!
    Thanks, c0w!

    I feel like we've seen a similar situation to this in the past... *cough* factions *cough*

    Regardless, also keep in mind that it only takes a few (in some cases one) to ruin it for everybody. If you break the rules, or hurt someone else, it won't be just the other player feeling the pain. At this point, you've also hurt everyone else that doesn't do what you've done, and is looking for a good time in friendly PvP. As long as you learn from the mistakes, we can move past this situation, and have an even better time going forward.

    Why not just ban the problem players? I don't see how shutting down the servers for everyone solves anything.

    That's like taking away a cat your dog bites, in an attempt to train the dog not to bite cats. Then, you bring the cat back a week later assuming all will be fixed. Guess what, the dog is going to bite the cat again. :confused:

    I rarely play anymore, but hey, that's my two cents. :cool:

    If it was just one or two people, that would probably be sufficient. However, to me - with no knowledge of any specific details - it sounds like it may have expanded to more than that. Hostility and bitterness spreads like a virus and can infect usually perfectly healthy individuals. You can take medicine to combat the infection, but you still need bed rest to heal the whole body. Time away from the negativity will allow everyone to reset and hopefully return their mindset to a better state. That's my ha'penny's worth (since two cents would probably be overpriced. xd)

    Even though PvP is one of my favourite things on Sandlot, I understand why you temporarily shut it down and I hope that this resolves the negativity we’ve been seeing recently on these servers! :)

    Edit: I just realised I wrote resolved not resolves xd

    I play some other games that have PvP elements to them. It kind of brings out the worst in some people both winners and losers from what I've seen. Think about at schools when teachers punish the whole class for the actions of a few. What does that do? It encourages the class to police themselves a little better. It's also a life lesson. The world is like that. It only takes a few bad incidents and then there are new laws or policies that affect everyone. It's just kind of how the world works.

    Depends on the problem. You don't ban pipes because someone makes a pipe bomb. You ban the bomb-maker from society (i.e., Sandlot). :cool:

    You have a point, but I think that in this instance, Giraffon is right :)

    Hey, cow sorry about what i and other people did. I wasn't calling anyone names. I just was mad at **redacted**, **redacted** was calling **redacted** and his friends **redacted** So Please understand that i did nothing to harm anyone. I did say a few times **redacted**" But i won't do that again.

    What i think should happen is keep the pvp servers down until *redacted* gets talked with.
    *redacted* should be talked with. Thats my concern.

    EDIT: I agree, everyone should be treated with Respect. And to all of the people
    that we're in this argument, I'm not mad at you guys at all.
    I just liked to play pvp. So if that could stop happening that would be appreciated.

    Moderator note: I have modified your post. I don't want anyone to be called out publicly.

    EDIT BY TNT: Okay, i agree thanks for helping.

    ANOTHER CRAZY EDIT WHY SO MANY EDITS: Sorry, i didn't know calling people out
    publicly was not allowed, Thanks for editing it, i will edit that out if you would like?
    Please tell me. Thanks!


    Okay WHY IS IT A PROBLEM FOR USING /me????

    Callous and malicious remarks are never needed. How does anyone benefit in the long run? I think it is totally the right decision if it is causing upset in the community. Respect!

    It's a real shame it had to happen, but I understand why it got to this point. There's no fun in it if everyone's arguing.

    To be honest, this almost always happens. I won't name names but I know some people have done this. Although, I have been stroking the flames, but I've seen always seen this happen. I wouldn't suggest just closing.

    Has it really gotten that bad? Wow... I hope things overall get better and everyone will be able to properly enjoy the PVP worlds. I know drama happens at times, but it must have been REALLY bad if we are at this point now.

    I'm glad it's temporary, at least. :) Hope things get better sooner rather than later.
