Division Vice Captain
WELCOME ... first thing we recommend you do as a TOG Minecraft member is to read all of the information contained in this thread and then post a thread answering the questions listed below to request permission to be added to the white-list for server access HERE
If you are over 25 and have not yet joined TOG we recommend you visit the Barracks and apply for membership, alternatively you can register for the public forum without getting full membership
To request server access you will need to answer the following questions
* Your minecraft username (Note that this is case-sensitive)
* Have you been an active TOG member > 6 months?
* If not, do you know an active TOG member who will 'vouch' for you?
* What other games do you play in/with TOG?
* Have you read and understood the "TOG Minecraft - START HERE" sticky?
* How did you hear about the server?
* Why would you like to join?
Once you have posted one of the leaders listed will check your request and PM you if there is any further details/time required.

TOG run SERVER's How are they FUNDED?
We hope you have a lot of fun and enjoy the TOG Minecraft Division... just a reminder though for the Frontier and Serenity Servers we do run on donations so please take the time to check out the following
How to donate to the server funds
You will require a purchased version of the PC game in order to use the servers.
The servers use a whitelist of allowed players and additional tools to detect ‘griefing’ activities. By default, players can join the server using the vanilla Minecraft program. Each server, allied or TOG, will specify whether players will need to install any specific client mods in order to join the server.
Players on the server are expected to conduct themselves in accordance with the general TOG Principles. We also have a TOG Minecraft Server Code of Conduct and various other rules and guidelines can be found on this forum, specific to each world or server. Players are expected to read the forum regularly to keep themselves up-to-date with any changes. This code of conduct also lists which optional client mods are allowed to be used when playing on the servers.
We attempt to operate the server in a family-friendly manner as kids may be playing on the servers alongside their parents or watching them play. Player behaviour should reflect this (e.g. no swearing, inappropriate chat / constructions).
That said, however, the servers have few mechanisms in place to make it child-friendly or child-safe and they are not guaranteed to be so. Parents who request server access for their children do so with this understanding and are responsible for supervising both their children's activities and interactions with others on the server. Children will not be provided access unless their parents are also players on the server (see Section 6. Registering to Play).
Remember, when it's all said and done, TOG is "The Older Gamers".
