    Attention members affected and aware of the recent "discovery" that you can create a nation for a town that you don't belong to.

    When I first did this in the game it caused Pebbles to /m me asking how it was done. I explained this and asked if it was a problem, and apologized if it was. I received no reply or warning about it, and I assumed it was a part of the game since I've been able to do that on all the towny servers I've played on. But just because you can do it, doesn't mean you should.

    The reason this should not be done is the following:

    The 2.5m that is required to create a nation will be taken from the town bank that is created as the capital. At first we thought (because it was not thought through, and it was exciting and fun) that it was coming out of our own pockets, and "no harm done, they'll just be deleted tomorrow". However, this is considered abuse of an exploit because it could be used to force towns to shut down by draining their banks.

    It was wrong to share the details of how to perform this command, and I apologize to the members who followed my lead after I "THOUGHT" It was okay, since Pebbles and I talked about it with no negative resolution.

    I'm sorry to ThyDarkrai, Alphurr, ZenoBlaze, and especially EpicFighter3, who JUST came back from a month long ban, and for some reason was Perm'd instead of Temp banned.

    Please consider that this is a feature in the game, and that the consequences of doing this were not understood by those who participated. If asked to stop, we would definitely comply.

    Imagine getting yourself banned on your birthday :p

    See you guys in 3 days. (bans under 1 week cannot be appealed)

    I did report it :) talked to Pebbles and showed how but it wasn't considered an Exploit, it's a feature of the game. We had a brief discussion and the conclusion was... nothing. I wasn't warned so I assumed that it was fine.*

    I also explicitly asked by saying "I"m sorry if I shouldn't do it"" then something to the affect of "It's just the command itself, not a glitch?"

    You're right, I didn't think to use the forums on this one since it wasn't really a "bug" in my eyes. Towny servers that allow wars would have it set up so that only the king who won the war could issue nation licenses to towns. But in this case there really is no use for it and disabling it was likely an oversight.

    How tf did a feature of the game become an exploit when an Admin or (whatever Pebbles is) should be demoted for having a player report a problem and the staff person not either make an announcement on discord to not use the "feature" or disable the feature..

    Sounds like a failure on Pebbles behalf..

    Bronxi, and that's why we continued using it, when I reported it he hit me with a phat "im aware"... never told me to stop or that it was remotely against the rules, also, epic's ban should be reduced to a 3 day along with the rest of us, he also reported it and was told basically the same thing...

    The failure of a server is the owners letting incompetent players become staff and run the server by giving them titles like "management" and "Admin" and expecting them to know what the fucks going on..
    When you hold staff accountable for stupidity their answers are like "we have a life outside the server" or "i can't be on 24/7" or "we don't get paid for this"

    Then how about not become staff or be consistent in your time you play like you were consistent before you became staff??

    Simple answer is the Owner knows a server this size is easy cash flow and as long as they dont have to cut the profit and pay staff to do a good job, the mediocre quality will be enough as staff are replaceable, players are replaceable and so are Donors.

    I had a long ass Explanation typed out but you know what I've said it all before so here is the Quick Answer

    You Play On A Free Server.
    Devs are Typically the only one's who get paid on a server that is Free To Play.
    Money Isn't Guaranteed, No one HAS to donate.
    Servers Cost Big Bucks. Go try and rent a server that can support the # of people this server. (More Ram, More Player Slots = $$$$$$)

    IF You don't like it here Go find another server. No Server is Perfect and Frankly All that is here took a lot of Time and Effort of Many People. Not to mention the investment of Time and Money the owner put into it.

    Thing is owning a realm is close to owning a server cus both owners will have to pay to keep it up while letting other players join it
