As of late, a few staff members have noticed an influx of users joining the server. This is great, but this has also brought about more people abusing exploits and breaking our rules. Even old users that were around before the reset have begun to migrate towards non-legitimate ways to make money for that rank and/or that one item. This is not okay. Our rules are in place to make Craftblock an enjoyable community and breaking them is definitely not a good idea. Exploits are one of the rules that can be destructive especially to our fragile economy. Before the server reset, people had millions upon billions due to the economy being broken. For this reset, we have tried to implement an economy that promotes player-to-player trade. This is why /shop leads to player shops and the server shop is behind it. Lately, staff members have also been seeing people abuse exploits and the most common we've noticed it AFK spawner farms that automatically kill the mobs in them. An auto afk farm is a way to earn money/items automatically while being in the immediate vicinity or offline. You can be AFK and earning the items you'd be earning while playing and without having to lift a finger. These are not allowed. The most common we've noticed since the reset is the abuse of Silkspawners and Mobcatcher. By making a spawner into an iron golem spawner and placing lava in the correct place, you could be making tons of money and collecting stacks upon stacks of iron (and flowers) while AFKing in the corner. If you are found using the iron golem farms that abuse the economy or any other AFK auto farm, expect punishment. We've tolerated users breaking our rules over this long enough and want the economy to be better. Not only are you breaking our economy and angering us Admins by abusing these exploits, but you're irritating other users by breaking our rules. If you believe you have one and don't want to be breaking our rules, ask a staff member or post coordinates here so we can check it out. Posting here with that will not lead to any punishment, but if you are found with one and don't let us know, expect punishment. Anyway, have fun playing!
