Well, it has been 1 year 6 months and 13 days today since we opened up Lucid Dreams and if you look at the top of the page there are only 33 likes which means this website totally stinks but hey, not bad for free and I love free, don't yall?
Please Help!!!! Jacie, You know that Prob I had where i couldnt Get on!! It happened again!! it is because of that chairs plugin I need tommorow at like idk morning eastern time to get spawned through console i will try to get on!!
There are 3 owners who don't have their time in, this is a public appeal and a warning that demotions will happen on February 17th that should have happened this morning on the 15th...I am giving yall a bit more time to make your final decision. :\
This might have nothing to do with it, but when I loged on, a bit of the chat showed, therefore I went onto the sister server, and scrolled up it said (from Lucid chat): [Enjin Minecraft Plugin] Auth key invalid, please generate a new one.
The reason, it might be, that I can not get on completely, is possibly because of where I am in the world. If we can succesfully get me to another place on the server, somehow, I might, just might be able to get on.
I still cannot get on!! Someone please help figure this out. I have googled it, I have direct connected, redowloaded minecraft, open and closed minecraft, Please someone help it is ReallY Frustrating me!!!! I want to play on Lucid, I am worried if th
I do have an idea when this happens although I am sure it was a jar issue, try using direct connect. I am truly sorry regarding server downtime yesterday. Remember, many owners have my cell number and can text me if down. If someone did, I missed
Following up with Jessie. I clicked join server and left to watch a movie on Netflix. After finishing I found myself still trying to log in after an hour and a half. I have tried adding 25565 to the port and found no luck.
You come on to the server for the first time....you check you ontime frequently. Once your Total ontime says 1 day or 24 hours, at that point is when you can apply for staff, kinda like a get to know you and trust you stage. After one gets staff, they are required monthly to have a certain amount of time at one week, then at two weeks, then monthly. I promote and demote mid month and end of month. The reason ontime is checked so frequently is because I want to make sure staff is coming on the server. Then I look at what they are doing while on the server...like are they being helpful or are they being rude and ignoring people. Are they, (rank dependent) hosting mob fights at pvp1, vanishing, protecting land, utilizing logblock, commandspy, as well as server performance maintenance or ranking new people up, or are they just arbitrarily playing or building and enjoying that nice new colorful nickname they acquired when they got the staff position? I realize that I am stern and need staff as a team to adhere to a pretty strict set of rules that are on the front page of the website, also listed at /rules ingame and at /spawn and at warp new as well as in the forums. It is imperative these rules are followed and that I have staff that will actually enforce them. This server is 18 months old, and the "no profanity" rule has not been penetrated at all due to constant watchful eyes, warnings and bans....this is to keep the integrity of the server up...we say what we mean, and we mean what we say....."no cussing" for example.
Yall are still doing it....When I looked at the times, you had 18 hours in last weeks and 21 minutes in this week....Please let's do this on a weekly basis now, Owner 6 OP 5 Sadmin 4.25 and Smod 3.25 weekly rather then 1 day then nothing. Please, because next staff rotations, I will look at your time for the last week you were on, rather then your total time. Thanks once again for doing an awesome job and keeping the server going. Thank you.
If you are staff, be sure to get the other half of your time in from this day to the end of the month when staff demotes and promotes will happen again. Thank you.
Also, the logblock files have been dumped and we are starting fresh again, if you find something griefed, please discard of it or fix it, as there will be no log on it before about 545 pm central time January 17th, 2014.
If only everyone had the passion to still be their rank as Eli showed last night, then we would not be here today, but rather, I have basically been bashed, the server has been bashed, the person I am has been bashed. Again, I really appreciate everyone's efforts for the time they gave to Lucid Dreams, I really do. When you become more familiar with certain situations, you realize that maybe ( I know I did) jump the gun regarding the certain someone whom you are speaking of. He literally was trying to help the server, not cause it harm, and sent me a very apologetic email that I never shared with anyone. Although I did not agree with his methods, he has been a long time friend, who for a while, I did not trust. Today I fully trust him, and know he is on my side. He certainly did not need to be told by an adult that he knew nothing about computers, that was a bit much coming from adult, who is suppose to support the children. I know that there are some kids who are out right mean spirited, but he is not one of them, I assure you of that. Kids these days are alot smarter then older generations are, it is just the way it is, and if they are really into coding, or learning java, this is a good thing, not a bad thing. These kids are the future, they are becoming tomorrow's Lawyers, Doctors, Actors and Actresses, Engineers, Mathematicians, Scientists, Police Officers, Firemen. If I have been a part in the very least of doing my job as their elder to teach them manners, new things, show them kindness, mold their thinking in knowing they are a good person and can do anything they want to, be what they want to be, then my job is done. I set forth a few rules that would be good to follow regarding running the type of server I had a dream or a mission, if you will, to run. Rated G, for the intellects, for the ones who did not want to hear that trash...and so, yes, God Willing, I will continue to leave this server open and your right Atrius, nothing is going to stop me now, at giving new children the opportunity to be staff. The really eager, fresh faces who absolutely love the game and are eager to be helpful to another person who needs it and that being staff, has only been a dream to them. I have always felt that we should have staff rotations, as everyone gets burned out after awhile. I have been at this for 2 solid years, non stop, non failing, here as a Solid Rock, a place for the kids to call home, a place for them to socialize in their age group and make new friends, that is not facebook, but is a game, which brought them together in the first place. Once again, if I have any former owners who still have that passion, please reapply, if there are any lower ranks who still have that passion, please reapply. There were two or three people I really did not want to let go, but I had to.....Passion for the game and wanting to be helpful, this is a must, it does not feel like an obligation, because you love Minecraft alot, is the quality I am searching for. Thank you for allowing me to run the server, it has been my pleasure. As long as people come to the server, the server lives on.....
635 aka Eli - repromoted to owner due to his showing a strong interest in still wanting to be one.
If any of the above people have a remote interest in still being at their rank, and can put in their time, please let me know...but it was far past due for this move. Please do not be offended if I have demoted you and I have known you for years, it is just better this way to not have quite so many owners all at once. The letter I wrote earlier in the month explains why this happened. Thank you all so much for all the hard work you have put into the server, you were all great staff members.
Next staff promotions and demotions will occur on January 31 at meeting ontime so be sure you get your time in each month. Thanks new staff members and congratulations.
And Remember, unless you have a crisis in your life, the definition of appreciation for something that you have, is taking care of it, and not taking advantage of it. Thank you, Jacie Leavell
Always put school first, even if it means you will lose staff. School first, that is the number one rule.
I have 5 really good applications of people who really want staff right now. I also have staff that are taking advantage of their rank and so I am going to as of January 1, 2014 begin to have a look into your time more on a quarter month or half month basis....If I see you have made no effort at all to take precious care of your rank by coming on the server and helping...yes actually helping people and myself out....then I have to demote you. It is simply not fair to those who are and have been waiting for a long time to be staff. As a matter of fact, I will even go further and say lately that they have been doing YOUR job at welcoming new people, telling them about the server while you are some other server playing...at least that is my assumption. That will no longer fly in 2014. No more will you be able to make up your time on the last day of the month or at the beginning of the month just to keep the rank, only to have you not show up for the rest of the month. Also, there needs to be a steady presence on the server, not putting in 12 hours in one day then leaving for 15 days then coming on for 10 hours on a second day and boom your time is done. I will be watching how your interact with the community, your maturity level, your experience, if you have progressed at all in your knowledge of the plugins we have to offer. If you have stayed the same as you were 6 months ago, then sorry, it is time to move on. An owner pulled out the stupid card the other day and told me they did not know how to rank someone up. I was not impressed to say the least as I have more then once written it down in a /mail sendall and much to my surprise they say to themselves, oh that is just Jacie rambling again so they do /mail clear without reading anything I have to say. Great job, I was training you. Ignorance is no excuse from this moment on. If you have been made staff member, I should not have to train you in every aspect of your job, there are tutorials that do that on youtube. Smods are not doing their job at all at getting people more involved in mcmmo and sadmins are not doing their jobs at protecting land. I never see staff vanish except owners to go spy on new players to see if they are good or griefing. I did not give you that rank so you could have a nickname. No, it is an actual job, a job where you work more then you play. If this is not you, I call on each staff member to resign today because I have plenty who will work and a nick is just a nick. Good Luck all.
Smod = 13 hours per month = 3.25 hours per week
Sadmin = 17 hours per month = 4.25 hours per week
OP = 20 hours per month = 5 hours per week
Owner = 24 hours per month = 6 hours per week
A steady pace of online presence and information to the community and being helpful when called upon...it has to be this way...thanks again. I will be steadily demoting staff as of January 1, 2014.
A note to staff applicants: Please consider this information if you are applying as this applies to you as well. If you filled out an app and are waiting, your chances will be zero if you have left the server for a while and have not kept up a steady presence as well.
As a reminder your Minecraft server is set to be transferred today to one of the new servers, there's a small possibility that this may change however. I've made a full backup of your server as of now (8:22 AM CST). When the server is transferred I'll update your domain information to point to the new IPs however the DNS updates for the domain may take an hour or two once done. If you have any questions just ask, I'll put this ticket on hold and update you later if this is completed today.

Minecraft will not load with META-INF and mods both existing in minecraft.jar, only a black screen will appear. If you can't delete META-INF, your minecraft.jar will become corrupted by the mod files, and Minecraft will not work until a new version is released. Thankfully, with the new launcher, you can go to your Minecraft directory, delete the version you modded in "versions," and re-download it with the launcher.
Please be patient, as this is a tedious process. Some things are are not working as they should like parts of essentials, mcmmo, clearlagg at times, and the werewolf plugin. It is fine, and not the end of the world. Consider the fact that we are actually helping Craftbukkit bukkit and Spigot fix the broken issues as well as the plugin makers.
Yesterday, I was a bit appalled at some owners and staff members for the way they were speaking aloud in chat, as well again taking advantage of me with attempting to utilize banned commands like sudo. If you are a staff member on Lucid Dreams, you are expected to act as such at all times. You know who you are. Do not threaten to quit Minecraft over and over and over. Just quit, plain and simple. Hand in your badge and quit. If Minecraft is something you no longer want to do, then please quit as staff member and do not be selfish and hold on to a position that someone else may be waiting for.
Many of you think, that as staff, you get a cool nick and you are done. No, that is not it at all. You are expected to work at all times, to be helpful at all times. Your days of playing are pretty much over. If this is not you, again, please resign. I have so many owners and staff yet at times, I feel that only a mere few of us are actually working to improve the servers performance, help people, rank people up, go copy and paste something for someone, go to the mob arena to spawn mobs for people. Honestly, I am fed up with a non working staff. Again, please resign, people are waiting for your position.
I do not wish to sound harsh in any way, these are just facts. If a bunch of new people are on, and you are whining about your life and are a staff member, then, I am super appalled. Yes, yesterday was awful and I will not forget about the people whom I thought I could trust, who did this.
Thank you to all of you who know you are doing a great job, I appreciate it.
Maybe it is time for all of us to take a look in the mirror and see where we could improve.
The IP is definitely changing by December 29, 2013. Please join the website and stay updated, or at least bookmark it. I will have the New IP pointed at myluciddreams.com soon after it changes, but will never reveal the new IP for security purposes.
