Message to the Dojo Community

First off, I owe a lot of thanks to all of you who have helped make Dojo what it is today; a fun server for players of any skill-level to play some ball and improve their skills. Dojo would not exist without the continued support of you guys. I hope you will all continue to support the Dojo and help me keep this great community of players together for as long as possible. :)

Being admin/owner of Dojo is both challenging and rewarding. I walk a fine line sometimes between enforcing rules and keeping the play fun and competitive for all. I try to be fair and consistent. Sometimes I succeed at this and perhaps, sometimes I do not. I welcome constructive criticism.

Please bear in mind that I run these servers at my own expense of time and money. I do not make a profit (generous PayPal donators notwithstanding). Dojo admins also contribute their time and effort to this community, and I appreciate the respect that you have shown to them, by following the rules and contributing to a positive/fun atmosphere.



General Rules for Dojo Play (more being added..)

DO have fun.
DO contribute to making Dojo fun for all.
DO pick on krawz (once in a while).
DO try to keep the games competitive (that means you, Mr. Flexi/Reverse Loopy)
DO eat your veggies, mind your parents, respect your elders/admins/fellow players and all that other stuff that bigboys do.

DO NOT make racist comments or use racist slang.
DO NOT stalk/hunt specific players. This is considered griefing and can result in kick/ban if the griefed player objects.
DO NOT spam chat.
DO NOT unduly harass other players (even krawz).
DO NOT sabotage play for others due to personal objections (you don't like the map, etc)


  • Rules on Dojo are enforced by admins as deemed appropriate by them. For example, a kick/ban for stalking another player may only occur if the stalked player objects. However, certain repeat offenders may receive much less tolerance from admins.
  • Since I pay monthly costs to run these servers and do not make a profit(again, donations notwithstanding), I reserve the right to kick/ban anyone that I feel is making play less enjoyable for myself or others. That being said, I don't particularly enjoy banning people, as it turns my playtime into worktime.
  • If you feel you were unfairly banned from the Dojo servers, or would like to privately appeal/apologize and regain access, please send me a PM here on the forum and state your case.

No. See the official Viagra forums for my Viagra fund :P Totally separate.

Based off the latest version of ur name, i feel like i may be donating to a quite different cause......kWARz! :P

I'm ready for duty, sir! We will dominate..........whatever ur trying to dominate xD

tgleaf 12-14-2010 07:12 AM

Donated $10. Good servers are hard to come by. Krawz runs an excellent ship.

SPeciaL 12-15-2010 06:22 AM

i'll donate if you make and keep dojo 2's max ping 250 :p

krawz 12-16-2010 05:25 PM

Thank you to all who have donated! :D

Donations will only be used for hookers and substance abuse. Promise.

stupefyyy 12-22-2010 10:14 AM

Toadkiller Cow 12-29-2010 02:45 AM

Sure, I like the server, I'll chip in a little. Hookers and blow is always a worthy cause.

And it's not tax-deductible, unless Dojo's a registered non-profit. It's just a gift :)

krawz 01-21-2011 10:30 PM

Dojo #1 is moving to a newer server with better hardware specs, hopefully today. As a consequence, the IP address of the server will probably change, which will cause it to no longer show up in your favorites/bookmarked servers. If you do not see Dojo #1 in your favorites list, please look for it down below in the normal server list, where you can re-add it to favorites. If it's not there either, please double-check your Filters to make sure you're not filtering out empty/full servers, etc.

ufo 01-22-2011 02:43 PM

I take it this means I'll finally be receiving admin status. Thanks Krawzs

krawz 02-16-2011 05:12 PM

Hi drake,

Please send me a forum PM with all of this information and I will look into it for you. I prefer to address these types of requests privately.

Thanks.

Iceman16 05-02-2011 03:24 AM

You should continue waiting until people are done talking and start playing to ban them imo. Makes sense.

Nikon 05-16-2011 04:34 PM

Hey krawz do you think it would be possible to get ball_tron on dojo? If so that would rock my socks off. Thanks for putting all the effort into these servers they are truly the best pubs out there.

bradgillis 05-17-2011 09:02 PM

hey, i don't usually play in dojo but... weeks ago someone banned me for 20 years. Reason: "don't"

Solqom 06-18-2011 02:10 AM

Hey krawz, any chance you could update ball_decimal to it's latest version? Had a game on there today was really nice to play on an old version but the new one is better :D

New blog & Twitter account
 
Follow @BallDojo on Twitter for future news updates.

Or if you just can't hold your excitement in, go straight to the spiffy new:

Dojo Blog

On my blog, I will simultaneously: post Dojo news, be a smart ass and fat-finger some wicked clever blog entries from my mobile devices after the sleeping pills start kicking in and I can't see straight. On Tuesdays, I like to kick a baby. I know that doesn't really fit with the rest of the theme here, but kickin' babies is a 2-person job and I've got a blog to write. Send me your current resume describing how much baby-ass you have kicked.

My lawyer informs me that you might want to stand back a few feet from the blast zone before commencing with the link-clicking. A couple more. There you go. Here, use this frying pan to shield your nads.


Good luck, friends!

Krawz
