@everyone Good Day Cyberdogs of various ages equal to or older then the age of 13. Todays ring-a-ding-wing ping is in regards to chatmod applications! We are going to to be looking for new chatmods to join the staff. To those of you who have applied before we ask you to please apply again so that your application is more up to date. (A lot can happen in a couple of months dontcha know?) At this time we are unsure of how many people we are looking for to join our staff, but we look forward to reviewing your applications. Below is a link to the application, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask. https://forms.gle/6LMcEDwrpqkeMFQ88 **This has been your annoying ping of the day, brought to you by Krunk Enterprises.** "Krunk Enterprises: Krunk smash, Krunk smash the competition in every way, for your success!"
Hey @everyone, rendogtv is now live on Twitch!! Go check it out! https://www.twitch.tv/rendogtv :heart:
Greetings @everyone ! Today's ring-a-ding ping is about a new rank we've introduced on the server! Now introducing the **Helper Rank!** **Who are they?** Our first class of helpers are: TiniestTea CaffieneJitters William278 **What is it?** This rank is for especially helpful members of the community. The sole purpose is for these people to assist new players with getting accustomed to the server. This includes helping with linking, finding locations, introducing commands and providing all the basic information about server life! The fun part about this rank is we will switch out helpers every month so everyone has the chance to be a helper! **How could I become a helper then?** Helpers, for the time being, are picked by staff who have observed especially helpful players in the community. We will then reach out to these people and ask if they would like to take the role. Past Helpers are of course always welcome to ask for another term. **Wait so are they staff?** It's important to clarify that *they are not moderators*. If problems come up the mod team will handle situations. Helpers are simply just there to be a guide. We introduced this role to also help staff in times when there are many players and few mods on the server (Like when Ren is streaming on the server for example) so that mods can focus on keeping the peace while helpers assist new Cyberdogs. **Anything else I should know about them?** The staff like to call them St. Bernards, which was the original rank title but was changed to avoid confusion. I (scoobs) like to call them Corgi's cause its fun. Creds go to Lt_Cubed for the idea and main development of the ranks concept They have a special tag, which is depicted below. Thanks for your time, congratulations to our first class of Helpers. This has been your annoying ping of the day, brought to you by Rendog's Derp Hats "Ren's Derp Hats: The derpy-est in the world"
@here For the Build Battle winners, your prizes are waiting for you to pick up on the ground level of the Elytra tower at Spawn. The Special Head Merchants have graciously allowed us to use their stall while they restock. 😃
@here The long-awaited Build Battle results are in. In third place we have plot 14's builder Daftbarbecue In second place we have plot 6's builder Fri3dnStuff First place goes to plot 15's builder gocleau. Ren's Choice was plot 9's builder H0pestart3r. Congratulations to all the Builders and your prizes will be on their way shortly.
@everyone We are pleased to announce that the end warp card is available. But not only that, the pigman farm is now open too! But requires a card as well, below is the trades to get your own! To access it (once you obtain the card and right clicked it to activate it) go to the end (yes end) and use /pigfarm or /endfarm to get to the respective farms. **If you already owned the end warp card you do not have to buy another** The gold hoe and shovel have been turned into shop chests to make room for this villager so please bear that in mind. Pigmenfarm: 16 gold blocks + 64 quartz ore = Pigfarm Warp Card. Endermenfarm: 2-tiered approach. 1. Enderman skull + 32 diamond blocks = Paper (enchanted with Loyalty 1) 2.. Paper (enchanted with Loyalty 1) + Elytra = End Warp Card.
@everyone It's time for a new Head Hunt, this time located in Spawn! Do you know the Spawn build well enough to find them all? Sixteen leprechauns (mini-armorstands) have been hidden throughout Spawn, and it's up to you to locate them! Get a complimentary book & quill from the chest at the Bulletin Board, find all leprechauns and write down in your book what they are holding in their hands! Then submit the book in the other chest at the Bulletin Board, and you will later receive the leprechaun mobhead as your prize! If you're not online when we grant them, you will be able to pick them up from a chest located behind the nether portal. Good luck!
and the /hub command has returned 😛
@everyone Switching servers is now done with the command '/servers' it will open up a menu and you just click the server you want.
Please note a small addition to Rule 23: `This rule does not mean elytra can be sold for DCD now. Rule 22 remains unchanged.` The question was raised by a few players, and we discussed it within staff. We decided against sales of elytra for DCD due to a few reasons: The diamond rule originally came from a request from RenDog, who wanted people to have spent a while on the server before getting an elytra. We feel 40.000 DCD does not cover this. Additionally, we believe allowing elytra sales for DCD would shift the economy sharply to a select few players who hoard elytra's, while the extra step of 200 diamonds ensures the wealth is spread across several players, and people are encouraged to interact with fellow Cyberdogs to buy an elytra instead of just going to a QuickShop.
- **NOTE** Rule 23 is the only *fully **NEW*** rule in the rewritten rules. Please note that from now on, diamonds have a set value of **200 DCD**, and may not be sold for less. This extends to diamond blocks, but not to other diamond-requiring items. Trading diamonds for other items is not covered by this rule. The rule has been added to prevent inflation of diamond prices, which has been heavily requested for many months by players and staff, as the Elytra Rule is also affected by it (and the End Warp Card recipe that will be released soon). - The allowed `@here` tag in <#218219101565222912> has been included in the Discord-specific Rules. - We have elaborated on "forum DCD farming" in the Website-specific Rules. We hope @everyone agrees with all of us in Staff that these rules are a much needed improvement and/or update over the older ones, and we ask for your understanding in the additions. For the first week after release of this post, we will allow a 'grace period' for the *new* additions, to get used to them (and change your diamond QuickShops if necessary). Rules that were not changed will of course be regulated as normal. The Rules will be changed in <#511638472650391558> immediately. On the server, the `/info rules` will be updated within 24-48 hours, together with an updated `/info staff`. Due to some complications with the website, it is unsure when exactly we will be able to update them at https://dogcraft.net/rules.php, but we will inform you when it has been. Until then, the rules on the Discord and the server will be the ones that you have to abide by.
@here Hey Builders, Crafters and Cyberdogs of all ages. Just a reminder that in 8 days judging will begin on the February Build Battle! If you're curious as to how the builders are doing, use /warp battle to see what has been popping up. Builders, I wish you luck in getting everything finished and can't wait to see all the finished projects.
@everyone Coming soon tm ❤
@here somthing new coming soon tm
@everyone Recently, we as staff have come across several lag inducing farms, where several hundreds of sheep, turtles and other passive animals were packed into tight spaces. Farms like that can have a significant impact on the server, and we would like to prevent them. Therefore, we have determined an approximate limit to keep yourselves to. We urge you to **not exceed 100 mobs of the same kind in the same area** (note: sheep of different colors all count as 1 mob type). If a farm is found that does (royally) exceed this, the base owner will be asked to cull some of the animals. We ask for your understanding in the addition of this rule, as it is meant to keep the server running healthy. You may not immediately find the rule back on the website, as we are planning to rewrite some of the current rules with clarifications, and this new addition will be added to them then. It will be added to <#511638472650391558> in the meantime.
@everyone With 2 weeks to Valentine's Day, we have added 4 heads that will be temporarily available! You can find the Merchant that sells them in the Elytra Tower in Spawn.
@everyone Hey Cyberdogs! The Build Battle is underway. The battle will take place during the entire month of February and is now open to spectators. The Theme is Valentine's Day The Twist: No red blocks can be used. To View, use /warp battle. And please, be respectful of the builders.

dogcraft.net website is back up now
@everyone Small adjustment to the Mall: We noticed confusion amongst both players and staff about what is and isn't allowed with itemframes, after initially only saying to keep the amounts low, while some people were using it all over their shops. To avoid confusion amongst players and not burden staff with having to count if a shop keeps to a certain treshold, we have decided that **item frames are not allowed to be used in the Mall**. Those that currently have them in their shops, have until **Friday February 1st** to remove them, after that the itemframes will be removed by us. There is 1 **exception** to this rule: If you're selling map art, you can hang one sample of this map in your shop. Edit: The 1st is a Friday. Woopsie.
@everyone After receiving some feedback on the website's suggestion box, we have decided to create an easier way to submit any feedback/suggestions you might have. The idea of a Discord channel for this was considered, but decided against, as we feared it would quickly become a mess. In the link attached, you will find a Google Forms, where anyone can leave feedback and/or suggestions anonymously. More details inside. This post will also be pinned here, for easy future referencing. https://goo.gl/forms/GwJWZachZsK6zhij1
@everyone After some hard work and great collaboration between Staff and Build Team, we already have 75 (!) extra plots available to everyone, with another 25 coming soon™! This will bring the total amount of plots to 208, which we hope should be enough this time around. Once again, happy shopping!
To give everyone an update on the Mall: We ran out of plots in 20 hours after the opening, much quicker than expected. But don't worry, we're already working on designing expansions. We don't have a timeframe yet when those will be able to open, but we'll try to have them available as soon as we can.
**How do I set up a QuickShop?** - You place a chest, and *Shift* + *left click* it while holding the item you want to sell. Then use `/n
The long awaited Mall is finished, and open right now! Thanks to everyone who worked very hard on it, from Build Team to Admins!
**Where can I find it?** - The mall is located 1500 blocks west from Spawn, you can either use `/warp mall` to get there, or take the SRN/NTN to the west.
**How do you rent a plot?** - You walk up to an empty plot you like, and *rightclick* the sign on it to rent for 1 month. You can *rightclick* multiple times to add more months. You can only rent 1 plot.
**How much does a plot cost?** - There are two plot sizes. A smaller plot costs 1000 DCD/month, a larger plot twice as much.
**How big are the plots?** - The small plot is 17 x15 blocks, the large plot is 15 x 38 blocks.
**I'm a bit late, will I still be able to get a plot?** - There is a total amount of 108 plots divided over the 4 coloured districts, which should be enough, with Sur2 in mind. There are 28 large plots, and 80 small ones.
**Do I need to claim my plot with a golden shovel?** - No, the plots are already protected by the Mall plugin.
**How do I add a friend to be able to build on my plot?** - You can use `/as addfriend
@everyone Coming soon to a server near you!

@here Congratulations to <@252186824204746752> on her engagement to <@252251834314391553>! <:TastyBeverage:267038510882619394> 🎉
@everyone We've heard your feedback about the shortage of ink sacs on the server, and decided to add a new Spawn Merchant: You can now take 1 leather and 1 (char)coal to get 1 ink sac.
@everyone The Christmas Event is here! Do `/warp xmas2018` to get there. The Event is beautifully decorated by several fellow Cyberdogs for your enjoyment. The following interactive elements (see also floor map at the warp) are also present for further entertainment: - Grinch Head Hunt: The Grinch has stolen all the christmas pudding, and it's up to you to help the elves get them back! There may be a reward after completing this task... - Map Building: In the village, players can get a free Christmas card themed map here, kindly made and provided by Wildfirev, by pressing a button. - Spleef Arena: Inside the mountain range, two spleef arena's are present! You can ask staff for supplies to play. - Gift Area: In the area around the christmas tree, you can leave presents for your fellow Cyberdogs! Give the present with a chest to a staffmember, and they will place it down for you there. The presents won't be able to be opened by the recipient until Christmas Day. - Ice Boat Race: Up to 6 players can race each other on a very long iceboat racetrack around the event site, for several minutes. Merry Christmas! - Dogcraft Staff
Ho ho ho! To make the upcoming Christmas holidays even more festive, we have a new temporary selection of mobheads available! Visit the merchant in spawn to get some while you can, to decorate all your Christmas builds, or just to *catch 'em all*! You're able to buy 12 different heads (see image) by trading a playerhead + additional items. The 5 heads on the top row were custom made for our server, and even feature a little 'RD' on the bottom to signify this. The bottom row of heads was already used in spawn decorations, and has been heavily requested to be released ever since. Happy decorating! Edit: I forgot to include them in the picture, but there's two more reindeer heads that should be on the bottom row :)
The creative world has been fixed again! You can do /server creative to get there, and use the following commands:
``/claim`` Claims an empty plot. You have to be hovering above an unclaimed plot. Plots will from now on be completely **free**, instead of paying for them with DCD. Players who already bought a plot with DCD, are able to get a free second one. Other than that, you can only use the command once.
@everyone As npc's are not coming back as a replacment if you had an npc do /claimskull and get a replacement head for the npc. If you had bought the golden npc you will get 10 heads otherwise it drops 1 head.
