So after the attack a week or so ago we are left with only a few ways to stop it from happening again. As said we have had protocols in place for staff whilst we work out what to do, but now we have to put something more solid in place. Therefore, within the next week or so we'll be putting in a password plugin on both servers.
When the plugin is in place you will be prompted when you join to set a password. To do this you use /register [your password] [your password again]. Certain words will not be allowed because they are obviously unsafe, so make sure to put something that isn't easy to think of. If you need to step away from the computer and don't want a sibling to come and wreck your awesome sheep statue then you can use /logout and /login [your password] when you return. To change your password /changepassword is your command. If you forget your password then contact a staff member and an admin will be able to reset your password for you. You have 60 seconds to input your password when you join before you are kicked as well.
Sorry for the inconvenience with this but it is a bearable price to pay for safety. If a new player joins make sure to help them out with this system if they seem confused.
