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.
This was the old redirect:

Last month’s plot contest submissions for the theme universe will be evaluated shortly, to choose one to win the Ultra rank. But with this month, a new plot contest will be held, with the theme Beach! You may use one creative, mega, or platinum plot to build a beachy scene. 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 response to recent issues with some of our newly hired trainees abusing permissions and banning innocent players, the Executive Team has launched an investigation and a review into the permissions of trainees and their role in the NetherGames Network.
The following changes will be made to the trainee program, effective now:
- A new staff rank created - Crew - to be established between the Trainee and Staff ranks
- Trainees will be required to participate in the trainee program for 2 weeks
- Trainees will mainly manage player support, with no permissions to punish players
- Trainees will have direct communication with staff members, Crew and up, to report players caught breaking network rules
- If trainees show potential within the two weeks of the program, they will be promoted to Crew and have power to punish players directly
- Trainees who do not show potential or are not active enough can be fired at the discretion of the Executive Team
- Crew members who abuse...
Your volcano plots will be checked soon and a winner will be chosen shortly! The plot contest will be held again this month, with the theme being Universe.

Last month’s creative plot contest, Christmas Festival, went very well with many plots submitted to be assessed soon to find a winner! This month we are continuing the plot contest, with this month’s theme being Volcano. You may use one creative, mega, or platinum plot to build something that reflects this thing. Helpers may be added to aid in your build, however the owner of the plot is the only one eligible to win for the plot. If you would like the reward to go to someone else or a helper, please give the plot to them using /p give before submitting it under that person’s name. Once all plot contests are submitted and the winner is determined, you may ask for your plot to be archived to build on more plots. The reward for winning this month’s contest is an Ultra rank or a free rank upgrade. Due to the extended plot contest last month, this one will not last a whole month but if you get started now, you’ll finish on time...
