The Guest Zones serve as The Voxel Box's guest building area, supplanting The Daro and Quercas. The Guest Zones contain many amenities for helping Guests use their time prior to being added to the whitelist. These amenities include:
- The Guest Zone Spawn: A small decorated platform which provides information on various current events, and warps to the Redstone building area, Spawn, and Showroom Central Park.
- Showroom Central Park: A very large park dedicated to providing Guests with a large amount of information regarding texture packs, building and design techniques, reviews, and tool information.
- The Redstone Build Area: A portion of the Guest Zone sectioned off for the purpose of making whitelist-worthy Redstone contraptions.
Where is It?
The Guest Zone can be reached by doing /spawn and turning right, walking along the path til you see a large rainbow colored sign, titling 'GUEST', simply walk towards and jump down the hole in front of the VoxelBoard showing this page, you'll then be transported to the Guest Zone and can begin your journey to White-list!
Guests who wish to build will want to grab their Tools and find a piece of the Guest Zone to set up shop. They may also wish to visit Showroom Central Park to familiarize themselves with the texture packs, building techniques, and various bits of information they might find useful. Guests should remember that they have access to /sethome and /home, both of which can be useful in locating their work area. Finally, they should keep it mind that it is useful to place a sign next to their work area with their name (as it appears in /list), so others know whose work it is.
There is no need collect resources inside The Guest Zones, as blocks are readily available, through a variety of means. One may utilize /i, the Dooplicator, as well as VoxelGET in order to obtain their materials. They may also use /ci to clear their inventory, or alternatively, place a cactus in order to get rid of unneeded resources.
Guests may construct their projects nearly anywhere in The Guest Zone, exempting the northwest corner (which is reserved for the Redstone building area). Staff suggests that Guests avoid creating purely underwater or underground builds, as these areas tend to be flooded or filled in without heed to the hidden work area that may be there. Building a respectful distance away from other Guest builds helps Guests to practice Rule #1.
There is no limit to the size or amount of builds that may be created by a Guest, nor how many times one may submit his or her work for a whitelist review. It is not unusual for guests to need several submissions to be given Member status. Almost all of the server's highest ranking members were not accepted upon their first submissions, so Guests should not be discouraged by an unsavory review. When a Guest has finished their work, they should type /wlreview, and a Helper or Administrator should be with them shortly.
Guests may receive world edit flipping for large boats or other symmetrical structures along with stacking for redstone circuits. This is too be done only by Curators and higher. This rule contains the only permitted ways world edit assistance should be used to help guests with their build. Further questions about the rule should be brought to thedeadlybutter.
The Redstone Building Area
In the Northwest corner of The Guest Zones lies the Redstone building area. This plot of land is dedicated to Guests who wish to submit Redstone contraptions as their white-list projects. The Redstone building area may be accessed through a VoxelPort at the Guest Zone Spawn. Guests should note that the Redstone building area is strictly for Redstone creations. Anything that does not have to do with Redstone will be removed from the site without warning. Thus, any build that is not purely Redstone should not be built in the Redstone building area.
The Zone will be wiped every OSD
The Guest Zone Forces are currently allied with the ZATA alliance, read more on the ZATA Alliance page (Look for the Smurf Amendment).
Any attempts to grief the Guest Zones or ruin other players' experiences will result in a permanent ban. Guests should make sure to read and understand the Rules and the Terms of Service they accepted when they first joined The Voxel Box. And remember: Administrators and VoxelGod are always watching.
In addition to Helpers, Administrators and VoxelGod, there are often helpful members who would like to provide feedback to Guests or give recommendations that can attract attention of the staff. If a Guest recieves the attention of the general membership, then it can be guaranteed that Administrators are paying attention. If a Guest requires further help or information, he or she should contact the Guest Zone Curators.
Remember to play fair. The Guest Zones are not infinite. Guests should try to keep land claims small (and remember that if there is no build, the land is not and cannot be claimed), and keep their work as their first priority. Guest Zone Curators can move work if a larger amount of space is truly required.
Guests must have a sign with there name at their build. When it comes time to wipe the zone we need to know who made your build, or it will not be saved.
Finally, Guests should remember that Helpers are people as well, and that if they get a review, they should attempt to follow the advice they were given before opening another review ticket. If they have conflicting interests between different helpers a guest may choose to only work with specific helpers (Assuming that the other helper(s) in question agree with it). One of the signs of a whitelist-worthy Guest is being able to take constructive criticism, and improve upon their work.
