Besides that, it looks incredible - I can’t wait to give it a more thorough read :p

Oh! Also builder applications should be added in the application section. And Jr Dev is a rank too.
I’ll stop xD just wanted to point those out

No one, absolutely no one, wants to read 26 pages of a server guide.

Still I think it could be useful to find specific things as, as mentioned, there Is a contents page!

Damn the nostalgia, Should I make it again? (For factions this time obviously, seeing as there isn't one in Guides yet) Screenshot_20181214-180233_Docs.jpg
@WelshAlex (sorry for tag) but seeing as there isn't a Factions guide in the Guides section yet, would you put it there if its detailed enough?

Sure I'll get on it, you couldn't find it because it was on the old forums that got wiped.
Yeah I know that, just thought you would've posted it again. :p

Damnit, I was almost done with my mega guide before my SDD broke and I had to get a new one :ROFLMAO:
This looks like it will be a good and lengthy read. Nice work folks! Thanks for making this, will be useful for new members.

I understand where you're coming from on-terms of size. I just find it useful that'll users are able to use the contents to go somewhere specifically. Obviously like the 'FAQ' part can be done on the forums in posts.

I’ve read through the whole thing (yes, Alex. The whole thing) and it looks pretty nice. You may want to go through it and check the grammar/spelling through, I noticed quite a few errors and unnecessary capitals.
Below is a list of a few things that could be improved:
8FFF6E62-4189-42E2-B60A-E84A1649B482.png
The report format actually has another question - “Location” (which gamemode you were on).
87928338-2409-4DFA-9B04-7369D50BA487.png
You can’t. Even if you message an administrator, they won’t change it for you. You might want to revise that sentance to let them know this.
B042C1E7-D0D5-4EC5-91F0-60E339C6A49E.png
Donator ranks ARE a thig tboufh. Iron, Gold, Diamond, and MVP. Also, you might want to add something about the consequences of chargeback! A pretty important thing to remind players of, is it not?
00CE2883-7948-4838-9665-078456E4F948.png
Is there a finish to this? Genuinely curious as to what you were going to put.
FF47F6FF-5510-4A9A-86AF-6B795AF328C8.png
You may want to add that evidence is required to get a staff member demoted - and detailed evidence, at that.
5ECC0386-67AB-4EBE-A09F-9ADBB663CF16.png
Please be clear that forum games are not to be spammed/shouldn’t be posted frequently! This was stated clearly in an announcement when the new forums opened and confirmed by other staff.
Perhaps add a section on how to make a faction, how to make tags and a description and other stuff for your faction, etc.
27638B81-FBF3-4F6D-A106-325AE0D959FF.png
Also add that when you spawn in, there will be a guide to claiming in your inventory - a book titled “How To Claim Land” by BigScary.
12E913C6-6777-4CD1-9410-638692259C16.png
I get that you’re using my doc to edit this later and I understand that, but I wanted to point this out - Alex isn’t the staff manager, Space is. (Use me doc!! Kidding; I know you’re going to add it in later :p)
That’s all of my feedback on this for now, sorry for the multiple posts but I had time to read it all so decided why not :p
It’s a great guide though - I’m sure it will be very useful to new players.

I think people would rather player the game mode and just ask questions in chat instead of reading 45 minutes..

This isn't compulsory for people to use. Plus if people don't get their questions answered they can refer to this. There's a contents part for a reason; not to read the whole thing like @Materializing did (good job tho).
