    Before we get into the thread please be aware that argumentative, intrusive, ill intended
    or inconsiderate behaviour will be prohibited from this post.

    Please wait till the end of the post before forming an opinion. Many thanks!

    Hello to whom may be reading this post.

    I've decided today i'll be creating this post because i don't feel there is enough feedback in which players can either express there opinions on certain subjects, situations or the entire staff related teams or anything on the platform in general. I feel you should have a good say in this since Peaceful Farms wouldn't be Peaceful Farms with the current community today. contributing to every little art that is constructed is made for you and your benefit so whats better than receiving your expressions?

    In which you may like to form an opinion on. Please make sure you have either a detailed or simple response to this post. Posts that don't follow this won't be acknowledged. For example, comments that have no direction in which they're referring to, comments that are replying to other posts and posts that aren't related to this thread at all. Some of these posts will be removed for the sake of keeping the topic tolerable and consistent.

    Feeling like you would have an opinion but you personally cannot elaborate on it? thats okay!
    Below, i have created some short replies in which you may indeed copy and paste below/ OR just quote and elaborate on that! These answers are preferred; although, without further or do, here you go:

    Short Responses in which you can reply or elaborate on:
    • Administration Team. I feel like the Administration team could expand/ or the chances of helping out in that environment would be much simpler than it currently may be.
    • Administration Team. I feel like ways of contacting the Administration team have become slimmed down. i would personally like more ways to contact the Administration team about inquiries, possible opportunities, unique collaboration or other.
    • Staff Team. I feel like the staff team could be controlled better, making the environment better in which makes the players feel more welcomed or interacted with.
    • Staff Team. I feel the staff team could be more opened in exploring ways of helping others out. I don't feel there has been much help coming from the entirety of the Staff Team.
    • Community based events. I don't feel there has been that many community events and i personally feel like this could make the community feel more involved and create more friends around the current community that is already formed.
    If you feel you cannot elaborate the suggested comments above, you simply cannot use these or form an opinion of your own, you feel there isn't anything Peaceful Farms could work on OR you feel like everything is fine how it currently is. You don't need to create a comment and thats okay!

    Please be aware that these are only a few suggestions. You don't need to use these if you feel you can elaborate on things on your own.
    Thank you for enlightening us with your opinions and constructive criticism. I look forward in seeing everybody's current opinions and thoughts on whichever you're going to elaborate on. :p

    I feel like there's a few thing i'd like express/post about.

    The Staff Team:

    I feel like as Ky is the only manager/admin, It leads to limitations. We can't expect an admin online 24/7. I feel like opening the possibility for another server admin in a different timezone or different schedule would help to balance out the server things and the fact that you guys are people and need sleep and have lives outside of minecraft.

    I also feel like as though there are plenty of mods/trainees; There are some staff that lack and some that do too much. I feel like having a good balance of staff online that are able to help in varying timezones would help increase server stability when it comes to the players online. Again- You all are humans but it would be beneficial to have a mod/person of authority online for most of the day- Not coming on one a week or so and so.

    From my personal experiences I feel like there's some members of the staff team who work a lot more than others, and that's just not fair ^^


    Community Events:

    I feel like community events would be a really cool thing to work on! I know myself and many other players LOVED the fishing plugin for spawn, So something else that would spark that interest would be great.

    I feel like the missions could also be worked on in addition to this- Adding weekly or more farming based missions or rewards would keep people interested into the server. I also feel like this would be a great way for getting people to make more manual farms and less autofarms.

    I second the fact that your should probably look into getting someone to fill up an Admin/Manager position for when you guys simply cant be on. Other than that i feel you guys are running the server great! Good Job :D

    Alright Ky, you're probably bored of hearing this but I also think the server could benefit of a second administrator/ manager. I also agree that community events could create a big impact onto how the server's community unites.

    thankssss <3

    Hello,
    Well, you can always have a manager [in charge] whenever you are not around if having a 2nd manager will put work in disarray. You can either select them from the panel of employee you have as mods or have someone completely new through a different recruitment channel.

    Staff seem to be enough in case of number. I think people need to realize some stay in the background on discord and can always be reached through staff assistant - at least that was my experience. Maybe a vote can be used to determine if more staff are required?

    Regarding the missions/events, I think it would be so cool to have a monthly event and a weekly mission beside the daily one? Having a themed mission or quest monthly would be fun to engage with. It also will be amazing if we utilize the 25 days to Christmas and offer a new rewarding system like an advent calendar style? We solve the quest and have a different reward each day.

    Thanks for allowing us to communicate our ideas and to discuss different ways to enhance our experience on this server :)

    I mostly wanted to echo the sentiments of the people above- I think that the server could benefit from having another person in an administrative position, which might help specifically with one being available more often.

    I'd also love to see missions/tasks that are a bit more time consuming/complex than the current ones. Basically missions that are a bit more time consuming, but also have a bigger payoff/reward. I also know that awhile back there was something like a build contest event- I'd love to see more events of that kind, outside of the missions style events I've mostly seen from the server.

    I think that the server should have a server chat bot

    I would like to echo the thoughts above with one addition. I think someone needs to monitor the forums more regularly, I understand the staff has other responsibilties, but i believe this could be something as simple as checking once a day when someone with authority gets on. I'm mainly talking about ban appeals in this case as it's often time sensitive. outside of that, I've always found staff to be very helpful in both discord, and on the server itself.

    on a much less important note, I believe the reaction rewards on potato need an overhaul. maybe a single compressed item instead of a spawn egg as they have practically no value on potato due to the differing mechanics from carrot.

    thanks for listening

    Hiyya Ky,
    Im kinda rubbish at minecraft, always have been.
    If there was a server warp for efficient farm designs and simple redstone, I would personally benefit from this greatly.
    Just limitations on the water saturation, lighting levels required, perhaps some water dispenser setups would be amazing for me. I am also curious as to farm automation and semi automation.
    Thanks
    Dan

    I feel like more community events would be bennificial. I used to be very active on chicken smoothie. They had alot of community events which made the community very tight knit. Id love to see a secret santa event:))

    Peaceful Farms is a very cute and relaxing server to play on, for the most part I have had the pleasure to call Peaceful Farms home. I love being able to walk away for a while and come back to still having access to my items, home and land.


    A few issues I would like to bring up is as follows:


    a. Staff

    I understand and assume that staff are volunteering there time to help keep the community and servers in check. It is nice to see a working team willing to come together with passion and love and to help out a great cause.

    The issue I have is very simple, please remember that not everybody who joins and plays on Peaceful Farms is underage or is very knowledgeable about how your discord server and its commands work. I understand it can it frustrating at times when dealing with certain issues, but part of making a business work is treating your customers with respect and being careful with your words. I say this with love and respect, nobody wants to drop a load of cash on services/items if they cannot be respected. The one thing that will send me packing fast is an immature admin team who cannot handle issues with professional manners and respectfully.

    b. Website Security

    It is a wonderful time to be alive and living in the twenty first century. Having access to a world full of creativity and wonder is amazing, but with all of this awesomeness comes risk. I would highly suggest using an SSL certificate for your website forums. The reason for this is because people are using passwords and email addresses that could be also tied to other important accounts. When you visit a website that is not SSL, you open the door to having your passwords and email addresses sniffed by anybody seeking this information. Please look into securing your website and for sure the forums to assure this information is not being given to sniffers.


    For now this is all I have for you, I think your server is very lovely, but I do regret seeing two servers as I feel like it has made the one server we all called home feel so empty and lonely.

    P.S. I understand you want to verify accounts using discord, but if someone deletes there discord and forget to un-verify the account or whatever the command is for that, it opens the door to causing a permanent lockout and most admins are not very kind when it comes to helping fix the issue. I think we can see this with my main point on (a) above.
