Happy Tuesday everyone!

Last week we were accepting questions that everyone has been dying to know. There were a ton of questions and if we didn't get to it this time, then try again next time. Chances are if your question wasn't answered it's because we couldn't release that information as of yet and that you should stay tuned for another of these events to have a chance to ask. Some questions may have been combined together as they were similar to another question, so keep that in mind as well. Without further delay, here are the questions we've answered for you today...

- Will you add like Murder Mystery, or Bedwars or something to BeanBlockz?
Funnily enough, we've actually been discussing this and whether or not it'd be feasible to bring some mini-games back on to the server. There's nothing 100% right now but if we do decide to implement them you'll find out on the forums.

- Will you ever bring back Skywars or Kitpvp?
Similarly to above it's something we're discussing, but nothing officially planned as of yet.

- Will BBZ be updated to 1.13.2 in the near future or will it stay in 1.12.2 for a while longer?
Yes, we will end up updating to 1.13 in the future. How soon, we don't know.

- On Halloween, would you be able to do like a zombie apocalypse on S1 + S2 where zombies will be unkillable and everyone has to hide in their houses?
We can look into working out something for this with the Event Staff, perhaps even on some of the other servers as well. It might not be exactly like this, but we will look into working out something for this or a similar event.

- After how much time can inactive claims be reported and removed?
Claims automatically unclaim on their own. If it's still claimed, then it still belongs to the owner of it.

- Will there ever be a server dedicated just for events like build battle or PvP so that they don't have to be hosted on servers where people actually play and can get advantages over others?
If there is demand for something we will always try and accommodate. We've down-scaled recently as we had way too many servers for the amount of players we have, but if there's something the community definitely want we can always arrange for it to be added. Feel free to suggest it on the forums and we'll take a look when we review them.

- Will you ever add custom
particles like particles in the shape of wings, halos or hearts that people can use as cosmetics?
I've seen them but the last time I tested them they were buggy. That was a while ago, so who knows what they're like now. Best way to see it added to the server would be suggesting it in the correct area on the forums.

- When will the sell stick become a thing? There was talk about it but it was never released.
Neon finished developing the plugin not too long ago & it's currently going through bug testing. Should be on the server in the next couple of weeks if all goes well.

- Will there be any new gamemodes added in the future?
Yes.

- Can you please or will you please add a broadcast command for event staff so that when events are gonna happen instead of server hoping to advertise the event for those who don't have discord they can just do the command and a message of their choosing be sent to all servers?
Definitely possible. Not sure event staff would have access to broadcast as/when they wish, but we could definitely do better advertising the events. We'll work on it.

- Will event staff get their own rank on the server?
I can't see this happening personally, but if events were to take off it we could always re-evaluate.

- Can we expect more regular build comps in the future?
The build competitions are largely something that Joel organizes and promotes so it depends on what's on his schedule, but we do attempt to run them whenever we can. The problem with running them too frequently is that it'd eventually become repetitive and the number of entries would drop. Doing them quarterly (it's typically Easter, summer, Halloween and winter) keeps them fresh and allows us to get a huge number of entries to sort through.

- How come there is an age minimum for becoming a moderator?
There are a few different reasons for this but it largely comes down to the maturity. Users that are 13+ tend to have a greater sense of maturity than those who aren't.

- Will there ever be custom options for pets that aren't in the vanilla mobs list?
Potentially.

- Can you implement a server rank sync for Discord?
The Discord is in need of a face-lift (and I do believe there have already been some recent changes), so I'm sure we can look at this too.

- How come the server doesn't update that much compared to other servers?
We can never decide what to update and implement. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯


I hope this has satisfied at least some of your curiosity for the time being. Again, if your question isn't here or wasn't answered, just keep an eye out for the next Q&A Event and it might be featured there instead, as we have limited space as well as limited questions we can answer at once!

Have a good day!
