This is the story of how an asshole owner ****** up and lost all of his players.
About january of this year I played on a server called RealityMC. This server was owned by the 'Great and Powerful' Zethura. Everyone loved zethura. At the time I was Admin rank. Everyone loved me. The server was peaking at 40+ players all day. It was great... But things started to go downhill... People wondered 'What is zethura doing with all of these donations?'... Zethura was supposedly 17 at the time. He made apps for phones as he had told me.
Now here is where the real story comes in....The server has had some mysterious instances happening lately. Apparently, I had world edited spawn. This was definitely NOT the case. I proposed a chunk error.... I was called a liar and my w/e permissions revoked.
Bout a few weeks later the truth is revealed. It WAS a chunk error. I was right, so as a good admin would do, I reported this to the owner. No permissions are given back, he rolls it back and calls it done.
MFW ok ass wipe -_-
1 week later the server crashes. MULTIPLE errors are occurring. Chunk errors EVERYWHERE. He threatens to shut the server down... I propose to fix it. He agrees, hands the keys (password to the FTP) over to my friend MadMaxxx and I. The password is INSANELY simple. We change it and send the password to the owner. All is going well. 13 hours in on fixing this damn server, and I receive a message over skype that says 'WHO CHANGED THE PASS??? WHY IS SPAWN GONE??? **** THIS TEH SERVER IS DONE. HOW DO YOU FEEL NOW ******?'
At this point boys and girls, I was pissed. as previously stated, 13 hours of plugin fixes, chunk errors set to 0 and reloaded, and MASSIVE MEMORY DUMPS were initiated, he wanted to stop the server? We had saved everything in the world, and even found the same spawn he STOLE from planet minecraft, as the only area severely ****** was spawn.
My response to all of this?
We have your password, we are locking you out until it is all finished. If you attempt to shut the server down, you will lose everything.
anal owner 3000 is furious. He finally gets his account back after we finish. He shuts it down anyway, and replies to us all with 'Well atleast I made out with 300+ Pounds before I left huh *******?'
This is where my friend toby comes in. He owns and runs the forums in which over 20,000+ player base has been
on in the past year. We lock him out. He has no control there. Post his exact words all over the forums.
Rest of story in comments.
