    Wow, we are very sorry that this has happened. I hope we can grow as a community and not cause as much drama

    Dang I don't play much but that's such a bummer... I do have to agree @KevinBoyette on that the players who did it should be punished (maybe not banned... depends on how severe it was) but it's a shame the whole server had to be shut down. Again, I don't know much about the situation but that's just what I gathered.

    It had to be done. And although it is unfortunate, it is the right choice.

    Completely true.
     
  5. I think this is a good idea. I haven't been on pvp or Sandlot in awhile but I got nostalgic and decided to come back. Pvp was always my favorite so I mostly played that. but unfortunately I noticed a change in the behavior of the players. I witnessed three or so arguments and dramas in the span of a week which was more than I had ever seen on sandlot in my years of being a member. I was even present when someone got banned for name-calling. I didn't get involved in any of these, but it makes me wish things were back to the way they were when I used to play. In conclusion I think it was a good idea to have cool-down period for pvp, but those who frequent pvp will having no way of proving that they are capable of behaving themselves. I propose a week long test-run once you feel like enough time has passed, to see how the players behave and treat each other. I would love to see pvp back up and running the way was, as I'm sure everyone else would. Thank you for reading.

    Tbh, now I've found nothing to do on Sandlot, as pvp is where I hung out the the others like @crustybusiness.

    Yeah, same. Thankfully it is temporary and I hope we can fix this and be kind to one another.

  10. I had no idea it got this bad, I thought it was a one off thing that got out of hand. I've never experienced it personally, or if I did it was minor. And I didn't notice a change in behaviour, although I haven't been on as much recently as I used to, so maybe that's why. Maybe I was on on the 'good' days. Regardless, I agree with you. I do think this is a good idea, although it's been a week and I'm starting to miss skywars... But I'll survive, I'm sure xd

    They are back online. Behave yourselves and be good to one another. Don't gang up, fight fairly, and be a good sport even if you lose.

    Hi @KevinBoyette! It was nice to see you on Hard server recently!

    So the problem is we have banned players. We have warned players. The bad behavior continued and continued. When it gets to the point where we feel we cannot maintain the welcoming environment of the Sandlot and its rules, and c0w and all of the volunteer mods are just tired of dealing with it, shutting down another PVP server becomes a viable option from our perspective. This time it was only temporary, but you will notice that the old Factions PVP server is gone for good, closed forever, even though many of us enjoyed playing there.

    @players: Please behave. I know it's difficult sometimes in PVP but if you are having difficulty staying calm just leave the server for awhile until you can come back and maintain good behavior. YOU ARE THE SANDLOT.

    One of the great things about the Sandlot is that, even though we have our amazing moderators, most of the players are usually wonderful about helping remind others of the rules. There are endless numbers of servers where you can play MineCraft PvP and be as nasty or mean as you want to others. The reason many of us play on the Sandlot is because we wanted to get away from that negativity and play with pleasant, fun people.

    If you see people not following the rules, you can politely remind them of the rules and respectfully request that they follow them. If they do not listen, then you can take the problem to a moderator or helper.

    If you catch yourself getting caught up in or participating in the negativity, do as trubuhl suggests and step away for a minute or a day and remind yourself why you enjoy the Sandlot over other servers. Don't be a part of the problem; be part of the solution. :D
