I regret to inform you that we have had our first griefing incident on this new map. Around 7:30 PM on January 6th, 2012, we had highly obscene and disrespectful griefing occur on a widespread basis. Blocks were set on fire with lava, and a user’s sculpture was defaced heavily and with such utter disrespect that it is sickening. Their acts break rules 1, 2, and 6, which are ‘don’t be a dick’, ‘don’t grief’ and ‘respect other people’s property’.
These users are banned from NGminecraft for eternity:

This was no spur-of-the-moment event; this was a planned attack. We had a defacement of a statue but we had no solid evidence to prove the griefers. However, recent software add-ons have revealed the griefers behind this. All four users logged in within a minute of each other and have caused widespread damage to many large building projects; some buildings were virtually non-existent after the damage was done.
The damage to a statue was the most digusting, with large phallic structures defiling the statue from three angles in gut-wrenching detail. This was a repeated incident but the first time this occurred EL33T_L3G4CY claimed it was the work of his cousins who had compromised his account. However, since this has happened again with all the same characteristics as the first, his excuse was a complete fabrication. All four players’ IP addresses are consistent with previous logins which means that their accounts were not logged in by some other user and that all participants did this willingly and deliberately.
Here is an excerpt of a chat log recorded by our SimpleServer software. You can see how they blatantly admit their previous wrongdoings and that they even ask others to join in.

We have attached pictures of the damage caused to our other players’ structures; some pictures may be disturbing and viewer discretion is advised. We give kudos to the LogBlock plugin development team as their software has allowed us to reveal the culprits and bring them to justice.
This kind of behavior is not only unacceptable, but it is absolutely appalling that people would go to such lengths such as building trust with others and spending large amounts of time doing so only to blow it on childish acts such as this. It is such a shame. If you run your own Minecraft server we advise you watch out for these users.
We’re not trying to convince others to stop being friends with these users, but from Skype conversations between us and them along with their behavior on NGminecraft, we can no longer trust them and because of this, they are no longer welcome to be on NGminecraft.
