Hollow World

Did I mention a love/hate relationship with this server? Well the hate seems to be winning.

I have pretty much decided to give up on this server, for a number of reasons. Not that it isn’t a lovely server with a promise for great RP, because it is. A lot of things just rub me the wrong way.

First, there’s the map reset for 1.8. Yes this is a beta game and updates are going to cause issues, I just like a sense of permanence and stability. I have enough chaos in my real life, I don’t need the constant fear that the next update is going to set me back to nothing.

Second, the town Queen I had been living under before decided to go a new direction after the map wipe. I loved the first concept, I thought it was gorgeous and I was excited to help. I really tried to help with the new town and fit what she wanted. I’m not a big fan of working in stone, but I tried.

Related to that, I just kept butting heads with the other residents. I would work very hard on something, spend all day gathering materials or leveling ground, and they would come in and critique my build or sell what I had gathered for the town use.

Third, they promoted me to moderator. Why is this a bad thing? Well, I already moderate on another server. I wanted this server to be my respite, my vacation where I could RP a little bit and unwind. They use mod tools I’m unfamiliar with, but no one bothered to educate me on them and it wasn’t a few minutes before users wanted me to do mod things I didn’t know how to do.

Lastly, more teleports without my permission. It really isn’t that hard to ask – we were also on teamspeak at the time so it wouldn’t even involve typing – and it demonstrates a complete lack of respect.

So sorry to all my friends on Hollow World, but I won’t be returning.

    Hmmm. HollowWorld is a great server! I cant see what got you to leave! What is your MC name anyway? The RP is brilliant, the mods are friendly and helpfull, what ever server you moderate on that doesnt use Bukkit etc…..wow it must be bad! I have been on this server for what….5 months? Why did the people sell your stuff and did you get permission to build that stuff? Why am I wasting my time here?! I should go on Hollowworld right away!
