Suggestions / Forbidden Areas
« on: August 05, 2019, 09:41:44 PM »
1. Is your idea logical? Yes.
2. Could it be done easily? Depends on how you'd like to do it but it can very easily be done.
3. Has something like it been done before? No
4. Has this idea been suggested before? No.

Have you ever wondered where prisoners cannot go in the MCP prison?  What their punishment would be if they get caught by going into these areas?  When and how these areas can get unlocked?  What possible loot (Like "dirt" on a guard) you can find?  Well, I bet you can think of things, but here is my take:

To the first question:

Well, there is the obvious answer of staff of the prison areas (Staged areas of course), but could block restrictions go away with part of question three (Like a jail break or riot)?

To the second question:

There are several punishments that could be given out depending on where they are at, examples:

C - Guard Area: 3*'** warnings on a count of 5 to make a way out.

B - Guard Area: 2*'** warnings on a count of 5 to make a way out.

A - Guard Area: 2*'** warnings on a count of 5 to make a way out.

HeadGuard+ - Guard Area: 1* warning on a count of 5 to make a way out.

Warden's Office: Instant Jail

Times go from 5, 10, 15, to 30 minutes for each offense and depending on the level of the area.

* Any other offense with this one at the same time would be auto jail unless fight.
** Any previous (You know, usual reset "time" on counts) pvp offense people auto jail

To the third question:

Well, the first way to unlock the area's is to have the people that can unlock them, unlock them.  But how?  Well, there are simple ways such as Redstone openers.  There could be a donator custom item that a person wants (A very Long cooldown though or one-time use (One-time use could be jailbreak when the item is used in the center of cy the restrictions of wg regions temp go away and/or temp holes between blocks show up to travel through the blocks)).  When a donation comes in on the server (Like a package, a certain amount of donations or amount value of the donation, or with a donor access package).  As a votetop reward or a voting /ps reward.

Once the area is back to being locked, the person(s) in it get tp'ed back to their /spawn.

To the fourth question:

"Ya got ya stash in the guard room eh?"  "Yes."  Think of it, contra the guard has collected for x amount of time and puts it away goes into the room of their rank.  Kinda like all disposal signs become a temp store sign for guards that they can only put it like how you can change GUI's after doing something to the block with an item.  This could be done when doing staff "training or automatically via code."

Another thing can be in there is dirt that can give you a free pass on warnings/jails.  You would have to consume it and it will notify the guard either in a private message or an announcement that "The Warden Found out it was Prisoner B, disregard the warning you issued on x player"

With the warden's office, well, since it would be way too hard to get there anyway, an "appeal" for a part refund on prison upgrades you have made so far.  It would say once consumed "X player has gotten a reduced sentence, as such they received x amount."

Sorry, this has quite a bit in it or could have quite a bit in it, however, if you have any ideas or suggestions that would make this better or your own take, reply below.  Feedback is always welcome.

Before you turnaround and say scam, please read the full description of the suggestion since the scamming rule would still be in place for players and there would still be rules against bugs.

1. Is your idea logical? Yes.
2. Could it be done easily?  Maybe, it depends on how the coding is for selling items in normal shops and the black market shop.
3. Has something like it been done before? Not that I am aware.
4. Has this idea been suggested before? Not that I am aware of with these searches:

Spoiler for Searches :

No results:

Fake rare, Fake rares, fake rare shop, and fake rares shop.

Some results but not completely the same:

Rare Shop, Rares Shop, Rare, and Rares.


Fake Rares:

With the fake rares, since in the past it has been suggested to be able to buy/sell rares from the shop, you can sell and buy fake rares in a shop in the black market.  There would have to be something noticeable about the fakes (Maybe when and if the server updates to at least 1.13) to let known players they are fakes by a slight difference in appearance but to new people, It can fool them.  Not all rares should be faked, just the ones that could make a difference in deterring or luring in people.

Some basic rules with them even though some are clearly stated:

1) No trading a fake rares as a real rares.  In other words no scamming people with the fakes.
2) Do not try to sell fake rares in chests as real rares.  Scamming yet again.
3) Do not try to craft them outside of the normal way of getting them.  Abusing bugs.
4) When claiming your lost fake items, don't try to get the real item from Silas and/or approved staff.  I know this could be a deal breaker on seeing if this gets implemented if steps are not made to make sure they can check for these things.
5) You can only trade fake rares to the black market admin shop or if Silas wants to make the black market more lively, players can sell to other players in the black market but have to have it clearly labeled.

Fake Rare Shop (Player to Admin Shop Only):

Here you will be able to buy/sell fake rares.  Possibly there is only some of the time so you have a hit and miss of getting the shop (Get it, "rare" shop ;) ).  Maybe during events or during certain events to counter money gains vs rare gains like block parties in NA time zones or the set of time, there would be a block party when Non-NA time zone events are being held.  (See below for full reasoning on this)

Possible fake rare to real rare conversion:

Maybe if you get a good enough representation with this shop, you can then sell rares to the shop at a certain level, then at the highest level, you can buy rares.  This will also help find out if someone is duping fake rares to get real ones in logs too so there isn't just crafting recipe that makes rares from fake rares.  The levels could be how "bad" you are in the prison each week to unlock pvp rares and then it resets.  Bad as in killing guards, getting jailed, or getting several warnings each day.  While the levels could also be how "good" you are in the prison each week to unlock non-pvp rares and then it resets.  Good as in mining, chopping down trees, and just doing your time without misbehaving (Like breaking the rules).


Any thoughts and suggestions that could improve this idea?  I would love to hear feedback from you all.  Also, if you would like me to make pictures of this idea, I can see if I can spend the time to do so for example purposes.

Thank you for your time,

Headless.

Bug Reports / Sign Limit Bug with chest shop
« on: January 27, 2019, 03:50:13 AM »
What is the bug: When you put in a Chest shop with an invalid id repeatably, your sign count gets increased for the block limit count without a sign being there since it drops.  Note: Block limit isn't changed it is just the count of signs.
Where is this bug located: any plot
How can we recreate it: Try to make an invalid id over and over in the same spot, then make a real chest sign shop that deducts from your balance.  I kept on putting steak in for "cooked beef" so that is why this happened.  I counted my signs over and over and came short of the block limit but with the block limit counter, it shows i used up all of my signs I can use.

Timestamp around when it happened is 1-27-2019 6.32.16 eastern time zone so about 3:30 am for sever time.

I'll give an update on server reboot to see if it solved the issue.  I also tried relogging and counting sings again but I still come up short.

Bug Reports / Minor bug - spectating flash flood
« on: January 15, 2019, 03:21:22 PM »
What is the bug: Showing "You do not have permissions to execute this command (bpp.use)" when it should show you cannot spectate message.
Where is this bug located: events
How can we recreate it: Try to join after flash flood starts.  Note: Dogtag was able to get the can't join message so it is probably a permissions error.

   Here are logic gates that everything in the world goes by to get the same answer every time if all of the same factors are used:
   
      The first logic gate goes as follows:
      
         If whatever comes before conflicts with whatever comes after, whatever comes after overrides whatever comes before, unless whatever comes before was to last forever.
         
      The Second logic gate goes as follows:
      
         As something is upheld within the current time, it is passed within the current time.  If it is passed within the current time, it is upheld with current time laws and regulations.
         
      The third logic gate goes as follows:
      
         No matter how much something is weighed, if it overrides it, it still overrides it.
         
      The fourth logic gate goes as follows:
      
         If they do not make an exception, there cannot be an exception.
         
      The fifth logic gate goes as follows:
      
         Some people think simplistically while other people think complexly.

      The Sixth logic gate goes as follows:
      
         To be a part of the whole, you must be a part of the whole and a characteristic of the whole.
         
      The seventh logic gate goes as follows:
      
         Your perception isn't always as it is in reality, but your perception feels like reality.
         
      The eight logic gate goes as follows:
      
         You can waiver down rights you can use, but you cannot waiver rights you cannot use.
         
   Here are core components to beat and prove what I know in the following chapters:
   
      All intents and purposes:
      
         With all intents and purposes, you have all of the intents and purposes of the right;
         however, if the intent isn't on the Constitution, the after, or in other words, the words on the constitution overrides the previous intents and purposes.
         This is because if the before was to last forever, it would be on the constitution. 
         Or in other words, the words on the constitution outweighed the other intents on the constitution by overriding them.
         Keep in mind they directly intend the words they do write, not the words the do not write.
         This does include the parts and forms of such words as well.
         
         Since if the intent was to last forever, it would be on the constitution, it is the same as when it is upheld on the constitution.
         The words that are on the constitution are upheld within the current time, making the only intent being the words on the constitution and the forms within the words.
         
         The words and forms that are upheld with the constitution overrides any draft before it.
         
         Even if there cannot be an exception, some exceptions/rights weigh more than others if mentioned as a right or part of a right causing some to override the others.
      
      
      Upheld:
      
         The current time is automatically put into the past at the smallest division of time making everything to be upheld to be the same as everything to be uphold.
         Time is a mere perception that had been developed a "long" time ago.
         
      The one dictionary rule or in other words the legal definition:
      
         The fourteenth amendment:
         
            "All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof,
            are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.
            No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States;
            nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."
            
         Argument:
         
            The law are laws because part of law is law.  Part of law are the words on such law.  Part of words are their definitions.
            Keep in mind if they don't mention an exception on how you can take a part of something, there cannot be an exception.
            "Equal protection of the definitions."
            Then the majority definition would override the minority definitions.
            State then can be considered nation since state in UN terms is nation. 
            This means the federal government is waving its rights down the supremacy clause by passing the fourteenth amendment and the people keeping such waiver forever.
            
            You can waiver down rights you can use, but you cannot waiver rights you cannot use.
            To be a part of the whole, you must be a part of the whole and a characteristic of the whole.
            
            
            
            
      
      The percentage game:
      
         If the written part of the fourteenth amendment is on the front side of the passed amendment, then using the right of once the people have the right, they have the right forever. 
         This would enable all rights to be equal before going to the backside of the amendment in which helps keep all rights forever. 
         Also, all within the supremacy clause has the right for the back side of the 14th amendment to be voided making it so the percentage cannot be used since it would outweigh the rights of the backside of the 14th amendment.

         If the written part of the fourteenth amendment is on the back side of the passed amendment,
         then if what comes after conflicts with what comes before, then what comes after overrules what comes before, unless what comes before was to last forever.

         Since the written part of the fourteenth amendment is on the back side,
         it overrides what came before it since if it was to last forever, there would not be a conflict. 
         In other words equal protection in regards to how things are weighed.
         Is equal protection in regards to how things are weighed is a form of equal protection?
         Yes, so it is included as a right. 
         Keep in mind the government waived its right to use this so it goes down to the people making it so the un argument wouldn't work.

         This makes it so the percentage on the back of the fourteenth amendment to be void and same goes with all other amendments due to the 14th's equal protection clause.
         
         The 14th amendment directly changed the constitution.  Making it so the percentage game to be void since the 14th amendment is the after the rest of the constitution at the time and overrules the before.  Just like this saying:

         "If whatever comes before conflicts with whatever comes after, whatever comes after overrides whatever    comes before, unless whatever comes before was to last forever."

         Since all rights must be weighed equally due to equal protection of the laws is not weighed at a percent and the same goes with other constitutional rights, the side with more rights will win the case.


         Knowing this enables all rights to be weigh the same as any other right.

         Keep in mind, if you decide to look into the conservative and/or progress arguments, they do both beat the use of the percentage game (How judges rule, weigh things and emeritus) without conflicting with each other. 
         Since they do not conflict, it makes it impossible to beat unless what you know is non-conservative and non-progressive.
      
      Name what precedent:
      
         Before there was a precedent, there was no precedent, making it so there are no precedents can be used due to this:

         "I proved that once the people have the right, they have such right forever.  So if there was no precedent before there was a precedent, the non-precedent would win due to keeping it forever."
         
         As the constitution is upheld within the current time, it is passed within the current time.  To uphold a ruling you must use the ruling because otherwise you waiver your right to use such right.

         If whatever comes after conflicts with whatever comes before, whatever comes after overrides whatever comes before, unless whatever comes before was to last forever.  If the ruling was to last forever, then they wouldn't waiver using it.

         The government waives to use all precedents by not using them at the current time even though there isn't a case regarding this issue.  Even if they uphold this right times infinity for any amount of time, they waiver their right to use one or more precedent when using another precedent.

         As the courts waive their right to use such precedents within the courts and their ruling, the waiving goes down the supremacy clause to the people.  Once it reaches the people, the people get to keep all rights forever.

There is more and i haven't proof read through this since it has been a while since i touched this.  If you need further explantion, just ask here!

Off Topic / HeadlessCowboy's Power Ball
« on: July 25, 2018, 05:02:37 PM »
Power ball tickets cost $250 per entry.  Each ticket is valid tell one person wins the pot.
To make your Power ball purchase completed, you must message me your numbers via mail on the forums.
Your first five numbers have to be numbered from the range of 1 to 12 and after your first five numbers,
your last number, in other words, the power ball number, has to be a number between 1 and 48.
This gives you an odd of 1 and 11,943,936 chance of winning the power ball with all six numbers.

First number = (1 - 12)
Second number = (1 - 12)
Third number = (1 - 12)
Fourth number = (1 - 12)
Fifth number = (1 - 12)
Power ball number = (1 - 48)

There will be a drawing bi-weekly, one on Mondays and one Thursdays, and if no one has won within 5 weeks after the first draw,
the cost of power ball tickets will cost $50 and the people that bought them before the change get to pick 4 more numbers per $250 ticket for a total of 5; however,
if this happens, the pot gets lowered to 97.5% of the total pot.

And if there is still no winners within 7 weeks after the first draw,
the cost of power ball tickets will cost $10 and the people that bought them before the change get to pick their respective ratio (either from $250 (25 each total) ticket or $50 (5 each total) ticket); however, if this happens, the pot gets lowered to 95% of the total pot.

And finally, if there is still no winners within 10 weeks after the first draw,
the cost of power ball tickets will cost $2 and the people that bought them before the change get to pick their respective ratio (either from $250 (125 each total) ticket, $50 (25 each total) ticket, or $10 (5 each total)); however, if this happens, the pot gets lowered to 90% of the total pot.

Remeber, "you have to submit your Powerball numbers to have a "chance" to win. Simply buying a ticket doesn't mean anything until you submit your guesses" said by a very respectable player Dogtag.


Also, if there are multiple winners, the pot gets split evenly as can be and the amounts get rounded down to the nearest cent.

The lotto will open sometime this weekend after I make a remodel of my courtyard which is where you will be able to buy the lotto tickets.
The plot is near A block (Courtyard plot 6).



Spoiler for Fine Print:



This is only valid if there hasn't been a reset recently to the server; however,
the money will be given back to the people that bought the tickets before the reset if it is known to happen in enough time to refund all so they can spend it on whatever before the reset.

If by any chance I miss a drawing, the drawing will happen as soon as possible and goes back to the regular schedule.

The numbers that generated are going to be the number generator from Google on their web page.

If you do not claim your prize within one week, you forfeit your prize and the drawing will continue as if no one has won.

If the drawings go 10 weeks in, it would only cost 23,887,872 to automatically win the pot.

Also, /votetop gets one free ticket every month they are votetop; however, the pot stays the same as it was before they receive the tickets.

All current donors get a free ticket once 7 weeks have happened from the first draw; however, the pot stays the same as it was before they receive the tickets.

For every rule violation that a member makes a report on, they get a ticket; however, the pot stays the same as it was before they receive the tickets.

For every bug report that you report and gets fixed, you get a ticket; however, the pot stays the same as it was before they receive the tickets.

If by any chance I cannot pay back the cost of the ticket if you get the Powerball number, I'll pay it back with a 5% interest per week in tell I pay back the total amount including the interest.

If by any chance I cannot pay the entire pot that you have won, I will pay the rest with a 5% interest per week in tell I pay back the total amount including the interest.

These terms are subject to change and it is up to you to keep up to date with them.





Any comments and/or questions?  I would love the feedback!

Off Topic / HeadlessCowboy Revamped Lotto's
« on: March 20, 2018, 08:51:41 AM »


   Welcome to HeadlessCowboy's lottery!
   
   There are two types of lotto offered here at HeadlessCowboy lottery such as the power ball and the one draw.
   Both of these lotto tickets can be bought at courtyard plot 6 near block A. 
   The power ball only costs $250 per entry and one draw costs $1000 per entry.
   
   Now into more details about both of them:
   
   
Spoiler for Power Ball:
   
   As mentioned before, power ball tickets only cost $250 per entry;
   however, keep in mind that the ticket is only valid for whichever is the shortest of the following two options:
   
   1) One week (7 draws per each ticket)
   
   or
   
   2) When someone wins the pot
   
   Now, when you buy a power ball ticket you have to send me the following:
   
   1) The correct numbers in correct order on each power ball ticket in a PM on the forums (pick a number from that range including 1 and 16 with the normal numbers and 1 and 64 for power ball number):
      
       1 - 16 1 - 16 1 - 16 1 - 16 1 - 16 (1 - 64)
      (There will be five numbers in order with the possibility of 1 through 16 and the Power ball number with the possibility of 1 through 64)
      
   2) To know the pot value will always start at 10k and will increase with this formula: previous value + (number of extra tickets bought after the last drawing * $250  *  .90 ).
   
      So, the first one will only be 10k but the next one is going to be greater.
      
   3) If you did get the Power ball number it is a full refund of your ticket which would be $250.
   
   4) The winner will have all of the pot in this lottery.
   
   5) Numbers will be picked by a number generator.
   
   Here is some examples of Power ball entries:
   
   
Spoiler for Good Example:
   
   1 3 16 12 9 (64)
   
   
   
   
Spoiler for Bad Example:
   
   -2 17 45 34 3 (99)
   
   
   
   You have a chance of winning 1 out of 67,108,864 per one draw.
   
   
   
   
Spoiler for One Draw:
   
   At the end of each month, I will draw the winner for the one draw for the month. 
   You can take the lump sum of 90% of the winnings upfront or you can do a payment plan. 
   The payment plan will give you 95% if the winnings at a 1/6 pace per month for six months so they are all equal payments to a total of 95% of the pot. 
   If there needs to be any rounding, only the last three payments will be rounded up.
   Keep in mind one entry is $1,000.
   
   Example:
   
   The pot for the one draw is:

   $120,000 for the end of March.  The payout would be either

   1) $108,000 per lump sum

   2) $19,000 per month for six months for a payment total of $114,000

Suggestions / BlackMarket (Drug) maze
« on: March 13, 2018, 07:43:34 PM »
1. Is your idea logical? Yes
2. Could it be done easily? Probably
3. Has something like it been done before? Kinda since it is a maze and we already have some.
4. Has this idea been suggested before? Searched the forum for black market and drugs and found no thread like it.


I am thinking if we could have a maze in the black market with drugs to unlock "doors" to progress further in the maze.
   
The first door should open with a sickle that shoots into the start area in the maze so you can get it back and re-use.
However, to progress through the maze, you need certain drugs that will not be refunded to continue to a prize menu.
   
The more drugs you use to get through the maze, the better the reward you get (Or just one at the end if you guys want it to be simple).
   
I think that the better grade of the drug, puts you further along the maze than lower grade drugs.
This could make it so some people can shortcut other people that cannot make/buy better drugs.
   
If you guys have any more suggestions, let me know in this thread.

Off Topic / Power ball and one draw lottery
« on: February 10, 2018, 10:54:18 AM »
First, I am posting this here to see if this is allowed on the server with Silas so none of this will be enacted in tell the next month or when Silas replies.

Second, the Powerball:

You can buy tickets at my plot in the courtyard (Plot 6 near block A).  Each ticket is valid for whichever is the shortest of the two:
1) A week
2) If a winner has been declared

The drawings will be daily.

There will be five numbers in order with the possibility of 1 through 16 and the Powerball number with the possibility of 1 through 64.  This means your odds of winning is 1 out of 67,108,864 per one draw.

The pot value will always start at 10k and will increase with this formula: previous value + (number of extra tickets bought after the last drawing * $250  *  .90 ).

Keep in mind a ticket is only good for the shortest of the one of the two: 1) a week 2)  a winner is declared.  So you may need to repurchase if you didn't at least get the Powerball number.  If you did get the Powerball number it is a full refund of your ticket.  The chance of you getting the Powerball number is 1 out of 64 each day I draw for the Powerball number.

You will have to mail me on the forums your numbers (And make sure you put them in the correct order that you want time to be).  Also, make sure you have the Powerball number surrounded by these: ().

Example:

Here are my numbers  3 5 16 7 8 (34)

 Also, while I am in the process of using a random number generator to get the numbers, I will close the lotto for any more entries for the time I am drawing the numbers.  I would be down if it would require a staff member (warden+) to pick one or more numbers in the Powerball as the winning numbers if this helps me be able to do this.

The winner will have all of the pot in this lottery.  I will be logging all of the numbers per each day.

I may up the pot if more interest is put into this.

Third, one draw:

At the end of each month, I will draw the winner for the one draw for the month.  You can take the lump sum of 90% of the winnings upfront or you can do a payment plan.  The payment plan will give you 95% if the winnings at a 1/6 pace per month for six months so they are all equal payments to a total of 95% of the pot.  If there needs to be any rounding, only the last three payments will be rounded up.

So, keep in mind none of this is in operation and awaiting Silas response.  If you guys/gals have any feedback let me know.  Also, if this does get approved I will post here the Powerball winning numbers each day and when we have a winner it will be announced with the winning numbers.

Welcome to HeadlessCowboy's stock market!

Here you can buy preferred and common stock.  The difference between preferred and common stock is:

Preferred stock costs more to buy than par value, has more voting power than normal, and receives dividends.

Common stock costs at par value have normal voting power and do not receive dividends.

Your voting power divided by total voting power is the rate your stock is calculated.

Here are the rates before the market is turned live:

Preferred stock costs $100 per stock and has a voting power of 3.  The amount of dividends is the rate times how many preferred stocks you have.

Common stock costs $25 per stock and has a voting power of 1.  There are no dividends for this type of stock.

The total amount of Preferred Stocks that can be bought at this time is:

2250

The total amount of common Stocks that can be bought at this time is:

10500

Keep in mind that the stock market goes up and down.  As I make money, the stock price goes up.  As I lose money, the stock price goes down.  There will be a set schedule when live trading happens where people can buy and sell in live time.  These will be planned at least 1 week in advance; however, they can be rescheduled within 3 days of the live trading planned time due to real life issues.  Hopefully, i won't have to cancel too late but if I do, I'll send out a $.02 dividend to all preferred stockholders.

Also note: Any 'big' purchases (~25,000+) will be announced at least 24 hours beforehand.

This stock market will be maintained by me, before/after hour tradings will be based on the prism net worth of my account so have a good look there before selling and buying stocks.  Search: HeadlessCowboy

You are able to sell your stocks to someone else, but you must notify me within the week of the selling.  In the notification, you are required to post how many stocks, what kind of stock(s), and the amount you are selling the stocks to them.  And then they are required to confirm this in a forum mail or /msg on the server with the same information.  Keep in mind scamming is against the server rules.  If there is any foul play with this, I will remove it and then you will be only able to trade directly with my account.

If you become inactive for 14 days, then your stocks go off to auction to the highest bidder which will take place in a 24-hour window with mails to me about offers when I announce the auction.  There will be of course a minimum biding but that will only be disclosed after the first round of 24-hour window.

The trading is going live in January.  This gives me more time to make the stocks more valuable when they are bought.  Before the stocks go live you can still buy the stocks at par value (Either $100 preferred or $25 common) to get the best value since stocks will change day by day.

Please note that any of these regulations are subject to change at any time.  I will do my best to notify all of any changes besides stock price.

Also note, this may not be done if Silas doesn't want this to happen since the last thread got locked in the suggestions section of the forums.  IF this doesn't get the go-ahead, then I will refund all pre-purchases of stocks.  This is just a warning.  I would be doing this myself and not relying on server power besides the usual.

If you guys/gals want any changes before this goes live, then send me a mail and i'll see if it can be done.

Suggestions / Summer game - Big Brother
« on: September 13, 2017, 10:53:45 PM »
Okay, if you haven't heard of the show big brother, this is what it is:

People compete to win money with the Head of Household contests. the person with the power of veto, and the people on the block that have been appointed by the Head of Household.

This would require a "host" (A warden or above).

1) The first contest for "week" one is the Head of Household.  All people in the game have the opportunity to win it to nominate the two people on the block to vote out of the game.  The game can be any game that the server currently runs or another game that the host sets up.

2) The second contest for "week" one is the power of veto contest.   The head of household, the two nominees, and a random (Number generator or another way that the "host" wants to use) selection of three other current players can compete in the game for the power of veto.  As mentioned before, the game can be any game that the server currently runs or another game that the host sets up.

3) Then, the person that wins the power of veto gets to choose if they use the power of veto to keep a person on the block or not.  If they decide they want to use the power of veto, then they (The person that won the power of veto and the person they used it on) are safe and the Head of Household would have to pick another person to be on the block.

4) Then, the people that are in the game (Besides the Head of Household) cast their vote between the two players on the block on who to evict and vote out of the game.  The Head of Household can only vote if there is a tie/

The next "week" would be the same order of the four steps; however, the previous Head of Household cannot compete in the next "week's" game for the Head of Household.

The "host" can make twists to the game to make it more enjoyable, or to mark a theme of the competition.

Once there are only three players, the past players get to vote for the players that would win in certain categories determined before the game starts by the "host".

There are no prizes for the players for each game; however, if they do make it to the end (Voted to win), then they win something (It is up to the warden/"host").

Any ideas or comments?  I would love feedback.  Keep in mind this would be for the summer due to a higher volume of players or for special occasions (It is up to the staff).  This also gives the staff more time to work things out with this idea.

Here i am suggesting we make stocks for players.  Here is an example with me:

Spoiler for Hidden:
Welcome to HeadlessCowboy's stock market!

Here you can buy preferred and common stock.  The difference between preferred and common stock is:

Preferred stock costs more to buy than par value, has more voting power than normal, and receives dividends.

Common stock costs at par value, has normal voting power, and does not receive dividends.

Your voting power divided by total voting power is the rate your stock is calculated.

Here are the rates before the market is turned live:

Preferred stock costs $100 per stock and has a voting power of 3.  The amount of dividends is the rate times how many preferred stocks you have.

Common stock costs $25 per stock and has a voting power of 1.  There are no dividends for this type of stock.

The total amount of Preferred Stocks that can be bought at this time is:

6,250

The total amount of common Stocks that can be bought at this time is:

6,000

Keep in mind that the stock market goes up and down.  As i make money, the stock price goes up.  As i lose money, the stock price goes down.  There will be a set schedule when live trading happens where people can buy and sell in live time.  These will be planned at least 1 week in advance; however, they can be rescheduled within 3 days of the live trading planned time due to real life issues.  Hopefully, i won't have to cancel too late but if i do, i'll send out a $.02 dividend to all preferred stock holders.

The top five players with the most voting powers may elect a board of directors.  These people have their postitons for 1 week and they cannot have the same role twice in a row.  There will be a meeting and/or a forum message on votes of each director every two weeks so this means they have to vote twice (Once per each week). The board of directors will have the following positions:

Mine Director - This person says which mine that i would mine in plus what i would be mining in such mine.  This would only happen during live trading plus one bonus 15 minute mining session every 12 hours.

### Keep in mind that i will mine more than those times ###

Tool Director - This person says what tools to buy to mine or what tools to use to mine.

Selling Director - This person states what to sell.

Buying Director - This person states what to buy.

Shareholders will know of the directors and may request them to do things within their position.

*Please note: If the Buying Director buys a plot, the Selling Director may turn such plot into a shop for future revenue*

**Also note: Any 'big' purchases (~25,000) will be announced at least 24 hours beforehand.  Keep in mind, the buying director can set this limit**

***Final note: All transactions will be logged and by request, a shareholder (A person that has stock in my player) may look into the log for details.  Keep in mind it may take a while depending on how active the market is.  Also, this has a $50 fee to do this (You don't need to pay the fee if you want your stock net worth and nothing else like other people's investment). ***

Please note that any of these regulations are subject to change at any time.  I will do my best to notify all about any changes besides stock price.

So what do you guys/gals think?  Do you guys/gals have any more suggestions and/or comments to this?  If the server staff don't want this as a plug-in or mod then i would gladly do it myself.

Welcome to the HeadlessCowboy’s bond, stock market, donations, and pawn shop.  Here I will explain what my plot is all about with these three financial options.  The plot is located near the free spawn if you walk out to the plot area from the bridge.  The plot is made up of wood primarily.  First I will talk about bonds.  At rates and "currency" are in game items and are not tied at all to real life money.

Bonds:

The rate in this company will be 1% for all bonds given for a period of 1 week.  You are paid the interest every week.  The maturity date for all bonds will be 4 weeks.  If you withdraw your bond before the maturity date, you do not get the full maturity value but rather get 1% off the par value (how much you gave) of the bond from when you withdraw tell the maturity date per day.

Note: the rate for the interest will change every once and a while.

Stock Market:

  Each day when I earn money, the stock will go up.  When I lose money (from either the bonds or pawn shop) the stock goes down.  There are two forms of stock: Preferred stocks in which will receive dividends plus two votes and common stock that don’t receive dividends plus only one vote.   If one person owns 51% of the stock votes, then their vote will always win. 

The stock market is going to open in December so there may be people that can buy into the stock market at a list price before the stocks are made to the public.  You may message me in game or via mail in the forums to be a beginning investor.  All beginning investors get at least one preferred stock.

The stock market will be open one hour every day starting with me updating the signs on the plot for the stock market stats.  You may still trade when the market is closed but the trade will go through once the market has opened again.   Note: I will not spend any money in between market close to market open.  This does include pawns and bonds.  The hour of the stock market to be open will be decided once we get closer to December.   If you guys have any opinion on when you would like the stock market to be open server time, please reply and I’ll see if I can meet that time that majority of you guys want.

The prices on opening day will depend on pre-stock opening investors for both preferred stock and common stock.  I will post the rates of the stock market here first then update in game.  Also, here in this thread, you can have a even more detailed report about the stocks history.

Donations:

If you donate to the donation spot and tell me what you put into it, you will receive dividends with every stock you own in the company (common stock will remain common stock though).  If you don’t have any stocks in the company, it would count as having one stock so you would get one dividend per the one share.  The donations will go to new comers as a gift (This may get them to stay longer).

Pawn Shop:

I am going to be running a pawn shop.  Do you ever need money but have items you want to keep not just selling them away to get money?  One solution: pawn it here at HeadlessCowboy’s pawn shop.  I will give you an offer for your item and with a low rate of 1% per two days to pay it back interest.  You have 2 weeks to pay off half of the loan and then only 1 more week to pay off the entire loan.  If you do not pay it back within the 3 weeks, the pawned items becomes property of HeadlessCowboy.

NOTE: this is subject to change at any time as I get feedback with this post.
