    As the title suggests not much has gone on since the last staff blog! This'll be a short and sweet thread.

    Support Rooms

    So we've added support rooms to teamspeak! Lots of other servers have them so we thought we'd give them a go. The idea is if you need to speak to a staff member you can join our Teamspeak (ts.skycade.net) and join the support waiting room, then when a staff member is free you'll be moved into a channel to speak with them. I'm not sure how often this will be used but we'll see how it goes!

    KitPvP

    As most of you already know from other announcements EvoPvP, a server Jack used to own, closed down. We added Skyblock to Skycade and now we've also added KitPvP, a custom PvP gamemode. Read more about it here: https://skycade.net/index.php?threads/kitpvp-launch.10808/

    Jack/Skycade Merchandise!

    Jack has set up a lovely little merchandise shop so you guys can get your hands on hoodies, t shirts and cups with lovely little Jack/Skycade designs on now! Check out the store here: https://teespring.com/stores/jack-sucks-at-life

    Public Punishments

    Once again the punishments are public! This means that if a staff member mutes or bans anyone it'll come up in public chat for all to see (unless we make the punishment silent), a small but nice feature that shows staff are doing their jobs and shames those scummy players in public!

    That's it for blog 4, I imagine the next one will be much more exciting so keep an eye out for that!

    I'd love a face on my naked chest, even when it's cold outside.

    Nice updates overall, only thing I disagree with is public punishments. As you say, it's meant to publicly shame rulebreakers, but this will likely just cause spam and expose the moderator to any other potential offenders. For example, if I'm some new player hacking and it says in chat "Turkey_Dinosaur has IP-banned oByee_ for ':('" and half the server writes gg scumbag in chat, I'd be essentially notified that a staff member is online and given ample notice to toggle off before I get banned. I realize as is written above staff can also still punish silently when they feel it is appropriate, but you'll rarely know for sure that there's nobody else online who is cheating. Also all bans are already public at bans.skycade.net to show the community staff are doing their job; few hackers would bother to find that site and go there to make sure noone's been punished recently.

    Uhhhhh.... again, you can make it silent and it won't publicly do it. (Stated in the blog)

    I know but they'd essentially said the majority would be now public, and as I'd said before you can't really always know when there's another hacker on or not
