    My suggestion is simple. Get some staff onto your server, so they can maintain the games that have gone down and are not restarting, and to take action upon the cheaters. Thanks for reading. I am aware that you probably have many staff members, but I have only seen one and they were afk in a lobby for at least 40 minutes.

    Also, please add a Watchdog type program, so cheaters can be reported as soon as they decide to make the game less fun for everybody else.

    1st: Cubecrat is currently hiring more staff.
    2nd: Sometimes admins and devs are too busy to keep restarting the servers, the servers most of the time do restart on their own.
    3rd: The "cheating" players can be reduced if you helped to remove them. The best thing you could do is record and report them.
    4th: Cubecraft is improving the cheat plugins, but it takes a long time to code them. Remember, hacked clients are always one step in front.
    5th: Sometimes staff members are on the server, but are normally sorting other things out on the forums or private matters.

    We also need to make sure that they don't kick legit players.

    The staff are always around, whether playing games or just moderating a lobby. With the network being so big, it may seem like you don't see us, but we are there. If you run into a cheater/rulebreaker, you can record them and make a report about them at https://www.cubecraft.net/forums/report-a-player.24/. It would help us a lot. You can also apply for helper to try and help out more. Just follow this link: https://www.cubecraft.net/threads/applying-for-helper-open.113818/.

    We have an anti-cheat system in the works. I feel that something like Watchdog is a little over the top as it's not fool-proof and most likely ends up kicking/banning legit players.

    If you think that Cubecraft does not have enough staff online, then why dont you help out them by recording and reporting hackers? I know that it may seem like most of Cubecraft's staff are inactive, but they are usually doing things for the server, and sorting out matters in their life. They might be helping on forums, working with other staff to make cubecraft better, doing things in their personal life, etc. And just having a staff in the lobby, even if they are afk, will help keep chat clean, because people will think that a staff is monitoring the server, so they shouldnt break the rules.
    Also, the devs are working very hard right now, and they are probably coding as i wright this. They are working on a new forums/website, the Freebuild server, Parkour server, and UHC, and a new anti cheat plugin, and they have more projects to work on after that. I believe a Watchdog type plugin would be great on cubecraft, but they have much more important things to do.
    Hope you enjoy this post, cause i spent 10 minutes typing it (on a phone :/)

    If you think in any way Cubecraft doesn't have enough staff at this time but they are recruiting and you could try it to solve your own problem. And I think if you want to report a player that wait time for that isn't long at all, I think it is minutes - a week at longest.

    Also like Camezonda said Hacked clients use bypasses to bypass anti-cheat plugins

    Even if there was more staff, the problem will still persist. Staff can't be at ALL games you play. The best thing is to report. Also, your complaining about the CubeCraft reports taking to long to respond? (Don't take this in a rude way :D) Look at Mineplex, they are 2 weeks behind on ban reports. :eek:

    I have no idea whether this would be feasible or not, but on some other servers I've seen a live mod system work fairly effectively. (sounds like what he was originally describing) Players use a /report command with a name and reason and a mod answers the call and joins the game the offending player is in to judge accordingly. I feel this sort of system would help Cubecraft immensely, but again I don't know how feasible that would be to start up

    The number of people cheating has become rather absurd and is really affecting the enjoyment had with the server so I figured it would be worth adding my two cents to try and preserve the fun

    That and we do not need a computerized Staff Member doing our job for us. Each staff member can only be at one place, on one server at one time. This isn't Pokemon, We can't catch them all (At least not by ourselves).

    From what I've heard, there used to be a system like that in the past but it was removed for multiple reasons. Part of which I can imagine being that once a game has started, no one is able to join that game. Even staff. There would also be those players that are going to be "that guy" and spam the /report command.

    As said before, there is a new anti-cheat system in the works but we will still want help from the community to help report rulebreakers on the forums.

    I knew that Mineplex was 2 weeks behind on ban reports but probably half of the server is on forums and the other half wouldn't just join it for a ban report. They are a lot of nice strong willing people but, if they added more staff more of the server would be under 'surveillance' I'm sorry but they're are to many people who would let a possible ban get away. :(
