General

Q) What are the rules?
A) A full list of all rules for each server can be found on the rules page.

Q) What hardware are the servers hosted on?
A) See the Server page for details.

Q) Who are the people that moderate the server?
A) A full list can be found on the Staff page.

Q) What plugins do you use?
A) We use a range of different plugins for each server. Type "/pl" when on a server to see the list of plugins we use for NerdBukkit, a custom implementation of the Bukkit server wrapper.

Q) What commands can I use?
A) A list can be found on the User commands page

Q) How can I help?
A) Be a good player! We're trying to foster a community here, one where we want everybody to feel welcome! Avoid causing trouble and you'll fit right in!

Q) Where can I find updates about the server and community?
A) There are a few places. Most discussion is now being directed to our subreddit, where you can find news, updates and policy discussion. We have a forum too, where our mod chat, server issues, and ban appeals are currently located.

Q) Do you host a Mumble/Ventrilo/Teamspeak server?
A) We sure do! Connect with Mumble using the details found on the Mumble page.

Q) Can I download map backups?
A) Yes! Map backups are typically posted after a map revision ends.

Q) Is it possible to check how long I spend on the servers?
A) The top 1000 users in terms of time can be found here.

Q) How/can I become a moderator?
A) Moderators are nominated by current Staff, before a moderator-only voting process begins with Head Admins making the final decision. The best way to get nominated is to be kind, respectful, helpful and active; not by asking.

Q) A server is down, what should I do?
A) Email outage@nerd.nu. Make sure you include the name of the server which is down.

Q) How can I see if my modreq is done?
A) Use /check to see the status of any open modreq you have. If it is no longer on the list, it has been closed. Use nerd.nu/modreq to see close messages of modreqs (Currently C and P only).

Q) My modreq isn't done, but I have to leave soon, can anyone handle it now?
A) The modreq system will hold modreqs in a queue, even if the player is offline. If it is completed while you are offline, you will see the close message when you log back in. If you feel you need to leave more specific instructions that wouldn't fit in the modreq, leave signs where you made the modreq. Staff likes to see signs making the modreq clear, so we can be sure to completely fulfill players needs.

Q) How can I get something protected?
A) Stand by your prized build, and type "/modreq Protect my build please". Once a moderator gets to your modreq, they will be able to TP to where you made the modreq (hopefully it was next to the build), then add a region. If you mark opposite corners of the cube you want protected, it will allow the modreq to be completed faster. Do not fret if it takes some time to get it protected. If you ever discover your build has been griefed (even if it is protected or not), you can modreq to have the grief fixed.

Q) I got my build protected, but now I've added to it and it is outside my region. What do I do?
A) Stand by your build and type "/modreq I need my build expanded please". Marking the new boundaries you want protected will help get it updated faster. Also, you can use a wooden sword to right click a block to get the name of your region, and add it into the modreq to make things go quicker for the moderator.

Q) What is this server all about?
A) Building! Take a look at some previous creations!

Q) How can I connect to this server?
A) Put c.nerd.nu into the IP box on the Multiplayer menu

Q) How/can I spawn items?
A) Yes! Type /i [item ID or name] to spawn a stack of the item. For example /i 20 or /i glass. Alternatively you can pick items out of your creative mode inventory.

A) Type /tp [player name] to teleport to them! Some players may have teleportation to them disabled, please respect their privacy in that case.

Q) How do I disable/re enable others ability to teleport to me?
A) Type /tptoggle

Q) Where can I build?
A) You are free to build anywhere that is open but please be respectful of other player's builds. Do not build on top of them or too close without their permission. The maps are huge so spread out. None of the nerd.nu servers have ranks or 'staging areas' for new users, so everyone who joins is of equal rank and can build immediately!

A) Warping! Type /warp in game to view a full list of all available warps, and then type /warp [warpname] to warp there.

A) Yes! http://redditpublic.com/carto/creative/current/index.html

Q) Why are certain items banned?
A) As with most banned items on our servers, they can cause lag in one form or another. Water, Lava, Ice, Fire and Bonemeal can be placed for you by a mod, just use /modreq. You can see a full list of banned items on the rules page under Creative rules.

Q) How do I fly?
A) We use the default flying built into creative mode as of 1.8. That means you double tap jump to fly and ascend, and sneak to descend.
