DMZ was founded November 10, 2013. Over the past 3 years, things have usually been pretty quiet, but we’re trying to liven things up and have been putting an enormous amount of work into revamping our plugins, getting rid of lag, and offering awesome features.
To create a Minecraft-oriented community based on simple principles: we value integrity and behaving decently, and we reward these things with trust and openness. We don’t like bullies and we won’t tolerate heavy-handed trollishness very long, but we won’t lose our sense of humor over it. We won’t put up with staff abusing power at the expense of player experience, but we ask that you are patient and respectful in return.
We also value great gameplay, creativity, and good communication skills — and we reward these things with promotions, but not when we feel the time is right, it’s up to you to decide when you’re ready to move up in the community. On Survival, that means applying.
All players are encouraged to open discussions about current server ethics, you will never get in trouble for asking an honest question.
We never sell ranks or privileges, and most of the server’s cost over our three years of existence has been handled by one of the owners. Donations are always welcome, and can be sent directly to the hosting provider so that you know the money is going directly to the server’s continued operation.
