The Basics:

We all know the application process on MCGamer. Toss in an application and wait for a response, right? well, sort of. The process is pretty long and if the applications are done incorrectly or poorly in the first attempt, they will be easily discarded and you’ll need to apply again - this guide is on how to avoid that very thing.

This guide will show you how applications should look, what we look for when reviewing them and more. This isn’t just about content, but presentation too. I’ll tell you guys some common issues we come across when reviewing applications and how to counter them. First off, lets take a look at the moderator application thread! It's located here.

So after my livestream yesterday, some great conversations were started by users asking me questions about the certain policies we have here at MCGamer. One conversation we spent awhile on was the subject of teaming.

Currently this strategy is not against our rules right now in MCSG since we originally opened back in 2012, but we understand that some members would like to play FFA as well in some cases. This post really is to start a dialog and maybe start thinking of ways were we can maybe promote both styles of gameplay on our network. One idea that really stood out to me was having certain servers not allow teaming (example would be server's numbered 100+ would be FFA servers only). I heard other ideas go as far as making everyone's skin to Steve + masking their usernames for an extreme example. These examples are not set in stone but in more of a "what if" status right now.

So what are your opinions on this subject?

TL;DR: Leaderboard infrastructure is being updated. Future crashes and instability being prevented. Leaderboard stats will update every 24 hours during this time.

Hello everyone,

Leaderboards: just a script, a webpage, and a bunch of numbers, right? They should be as easy to keep and maintain as an Arizona cactus.

WRONG.

Sure, maybe that's true if you're running a leaderboard of 1,000 people and a few statistics each. But MCGamer surpassed those qualities a long time ago, and our leaderboard are so massive and complex that they require their own server to run. Our leaderboard track a large number of statistics for each and every one of the 2.77+ million players that has ever joined our servers. The leaderboard automatically updates each and every one of those players' statistics on a regular basis, leading to an absolutely massive amount of information that needs to be stored and updated several times per day; 10 statistics * 2.77 mil players = 27,700,000+...
