As many of you may have heard, a new data protection law is coming into effect called the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which will covers all our players and users located within the European Economic Area (EEA). While the GDPR only applies to EEA countries, we will be rolling out a new data and privacy to all players & users globally.
- What data we collect and why
- How we use the data we collect
- What steps we have taken to comply with the GDPR
- What measures we have taken to protect user data
- Some guidelines for handling user data and information
- How you can remove or request a copy of your data from our databases and servers
You can find the new policy that comes into effect on the 25th of May 2018 (same date as when the GDPR comes into effect) at...
Last month’s plot contest submissions for the theme beach have been evaluated, and ScarletWitch613 has won an Ultra rank! But with this month, a new plot contest will be held, with the theme Castle! You may use one creative, mega, or platinum plot to build a castle. As long as your build reflects the theme, it is eligible to be considered. You may add helpers to your plot, but please note that the owner under /p info is the only one who can get the reward. If you would like this reward to go to a helper or a friend, please give the plot to them using /p give before submitting your plot. If you would like to archive your plot after the winner has been announced, feel free to contact @Keith to do so. This month’s reward for winning the contest is an Ultra rank or a free rank upgrade.
In the morning on March 15 (Australian Eastern Daylight Time) our forums suffered a security breach in which a forum administrator's account was compromised and used to cause damage to our forums database & sending an inappropriate email to all forums users.
At this point, we can confirm that no passwords have been leaked or stolen. Our priority is securing all our users' data, so all systems use strong encryption methods for passwords. However, just as a safety precaution, we strongly advise all users to change account passwords which were the same as your NetherGames Forums account password.
New users who have registered after 7pm AEDT are not affected by this incident.
We would like to offer our assurance to players that we are currently conducting a full investigation into this breach and taking necessary steps to prevent a similar incident from reoccurring in the future.
If you have any questions regarding this incident, please contact our...
As of today, we have officially merged with a server called “NovaPE”.
NovaPE is a server that has Hypixel-like duels & minigames and other enjoyable cosmetic features.
The server that is joining us means we have a new developer by the name of Zinkaio. Please ensure you make him feel very welcome to our community!
If you play on NetherGames, this doesn’t affect you much, other than more new players joining. We also will be adding some new games that NovaPE had in the future.
Hopefully we, in collaboration with NovaPE, are able to succeed in our goal of providing all our players with an enjoyable experience on our network.
If you have any questions regarding the update, please contact our support team
As you can see, we have just completed big updates to our forums!
While the most notable update is the overall design, we have also changed a number of things:
- Appeals and applications procedure
If you have applied or appealed your punishment before, you will know from experience that whenever you click on the NetherGames logo to create a new appeal/application, there will be a neat template waiting for you in the content body. This has since been changed and there is no longer a template - you must fill in the input fields below the post content box. You must fill in all the required fields or you will not be able to submit an appeal or an application.
- Link changes
Due to the new software upgrade, we have changed a few links around on the forums, and as a result, if your browser’s cache hasn’t been cleared yet, it may result in a few errors when you attempt to appeal or apply.
