Hey guys, Basically I was responsible for one of the greatest problems this server has ever faced. To start off this is my first post in quite awhile, since I lost all interest in minecraft and also this server(Still think its a well run server and community though.) Being that I don't really care anymore I decided it is time to finally reveal a secret I have been holding back for years now. Only server veterans will remember this event, but I was the sole person who started the announcement spam a few years ago. Just some context for those of you who don't know what I am talking about, about 5 years ago there was a bug where everyone had the ability to use a command that would send a server announcement with a custom message. No one really knew about it though so it never was really an issue until this one day. So here is a detailed look on how I caused the worst server wide spam incident the J&H community has ever experienced. I can't really remember how I figured out the command but I believe it was from setting up the same announcement plugin on my own survival server I just set up for my friends and me to play on (this was before survival was fixed). Anyways I went on the server lobby one day and typed in the command to send a server announcement and to my surprise it actually worked. As soon as I saw this I knew I could really mess around and have some fun with it. So I went over to my favorite server at the time, skyblock 2, and started sending announcements to the entire server pretending to be one of the owners. Players bought it right away and tried talking to "Jerry and Harry" but soon after, due to my immature 13 year old nature at the time, I started sending in some pretty vulgar announcements. I believe I might of also threatened to be a hacker that was destroying the server or something, I can't really remember, but someone went and got a mod, (DWG), to come check out the situation. Once the mod got on I knew he couldn't really do anything so I just went ahead and started insulting him and just saying stupid shit. Eventually I got bored and was ready to get off so I just made an announcement telling the people I was joking. Now this is where things really went downhill, the last announcement I sent before getting off was something like "If you want to send an announcement yourself just type /an [message]" (I forget what the actual command was ). Suddenly the chat exploded with announcements as people tested the command, and I quickly logged off. A few hours later I got back on and holy shit there was a lot of spam. Now every single server on J&H was just filled with announcements. There were hundreds of announcements advertising servers, youtube channels, full of curse words, or just random spam, flooding the chat. And then I realized I had really fucked up. I remember during all the chaos I asked a staff member what would happen to the player that started this, and they told me they would probably be perm banned so I just prayed J&H wouldn't look back at the logs and see it was me. Well now you know, so I guess perm ban me if you want. Actually I rather you not but I am sorry for the trouble I may have caused you a few years ago. TL;DR - I was the one who started the server wide announcement spam 5 years ago.
