It's that wonderful time of year again, when you're just hanging out on the beach, or lazing around at home. This year, we've decided to have another /warp summer! We've got brand new summer plots for you all to hang out at, just do /warp summer on our creative server to get started! More information about the event is below:

WHEN?
July 20th - July 30th

WHERE?
/warp Summer on our Creative server!

WHAT?
ALL of you that replied to this thread are featured somewhere on the plots!

Dunk-A-Staff
Skin Competition
Coral Maze
Parkour
Scavenger Hunt
Selfie Spots
Fish Skull Hunt (more information below!)
Giant Pool
Slides
Boat Races
Party Island
Shops
Summer Trivia
and much more!

It seems our beloved fish have scattered all across the island! We need your help in finding them!

Once you think you've counted up all the fish skulls on the plot, head on over to the Wishing Well down under the island to submit your guess! You will be allowed 3 guesses, so choose wisely. If one of your guesses is correct, you'll be entered into our VIP+ giveaway (though, only one of you all will win VIP+). If you already have VIP+ or above, you'll be able to give it to a friend.

Good luck!
If you have any questions about the event, you can ask an event team member or just down in the comments below!...

DISCORD OR TEAMSPEAK?

Recently, TeamSpeak has been inaccessible to players, and has been very inactive, in terms of Partiers chatting with others. However, our official Discord server is up and running!​

We would like YOUR feedback and answers:
Should we KEEP everything on TeamSpeak as it is, and why?​

OR​

Should we migrate to the Discord server, and why?​

Please take your time, and answer a few quick questions regarding which platform the community will use to primarily communicate with in the future, here.​

(Remember: YOUR answers and feedback will play a huge part in which platform we decide to migrate to! Your responses are also ANONYMOUS!)​

If you would like, you may continue this discussion below, and you may always add further feedback and ideas that you have, but remember to be respectful!​

Summer Build Competition!
Hello there partiers, I hope you're all enjoying your summer so far! Today we have a special event for you which will last the entire of summer! This year, we are going to be hosting a special build competition, unlike before where its been around 2 weeks long - you will have from today (3rd July) until the end of august, similarly to past build battles, you will have to submit your build via a thread which will be linked below.

Now then, for this build competition you will have to create a summer plot which, obviously, is to do with summer. For this, you are allowed to use world edit, you are allowed to work in groups (no bigger than groups of 4) and you can merge plots to make the build larger if you wanted to!

We will be judging the builds on creativity, how well you thought outside of the box, how unique your build is and if we think much effort has been put into it (The size of the plot will NOT contribute to if you will win or not.)

Here are some rules you must follow:

  • No groups bigger than 4.
  • If you are in a team, please state ALL team members who helped with the build.
  • Defaults - VIP+ ARE allowed to ask for help from Elites for world edit.
  • No more than 1 submission, if you are in a team only one of you is allowed to submit that build.
  • If you are in a team of more than...
[​IMG] Hi y'all!

Party Games has been released out of beta and we'd really like to know how you think it can be improved. All responses are wanted.

For those who don't know, PG are a bunch of small- 1 minute games, that are quick and fast, check out our older thread to see some of the game types here. *some games have been rebranded since this thread

Although we do have a new PG since this thread and it's called Tetronimo!

We really need some feedback from you guys to see what we can improve, if you all could put your feedback underneath here that would be great!

In the comments below;


What do you like? What do you think could be changed? Do you like the maps? If so, why?

Hi guys!

Okay so, we've got some updates to insights, so let's catch you up!

Insights Teams

If I'm honest, the teams haven't changed a bunch, we've still got Social Media, Live Stream, Event Planning, Build team, Creativity and Design Team and last but not least - Community Feedback and Quality Assurance. However, the application system we use for insights has changed drastically.

So, for insights before now, you applied for general insights that would apply to one of the teams. However, we are changing that to improve the number of people within the teams.

Team Leaders

For those who aren't aware, each team inside insights has it's own leader which in game are called the Insights unless they are staff, then they will obviously have their staff roles. The leaders are as follows:


@Arujann for the Social Media Team
@GamerGuts for the Live Stream Team
@Liillii for the Event Planning Team
@WorldEdit_ for the Build Team
@huakart for the Creativity and Design Team
@Nashhii for the CF/QA team


The New Application Process

So we've got a new application form that you can click here. After submitting the...

Hi Partiers,

Recently we’ve had a small revamp of some of the stuff for the Community Feedback/Quality Assurance Insights team.

So what has changed?

Well, we’ve got three main sections of focus to hear you all, Discord Suggestions (including the Official PartyZone discord and insights discord), Forum Suggestions (so all the stuff you post here) and Bug Reports. This will enable us to communicate and hear your feedback as soon as possible.

But how is it going to work?

So when you apply for the CF/QA team you will be placed into one of those three sections, each section has a “leader” who will give you work and tell you exactly what you need to do.

The leaders of each team are as follows, for the Discord Suggestions - @Jhade, Forum Suggestions - @jedijoe and Bug Reports - @Catten.

We will be responding to suggestions and bug reports as soon as possible!

Where are our feedback threads going to be?

They will be in a couple of places, for Builds, Build feedback (we've got some new threads coming out in there by the end of this week so stay tuned!). However, most will go on the homepage, for example if a new game comes out.


Stay tuned we will need your feedback!

Hi Partiers!

We’ve recently visited the deepest darkest basement of creative ideas and someone has left a note saying that you want emotes. So here they are! We’ve got so many! They are spread across VIP+ to ELITE+ for now.

So how do I use emotes?

Well, if you are VIP+ you can do /emote list to see what emotes you have access to.
[​IMG]
Then you can scroll the the pages by typing the commands in the list!

Once you see the list, you are able to type the emote using a simple command, ex. “/oof Cxtten”. This would display this message: “Justenn oof’ed Cxtten.”
[​IMG]

Now that you’re an expert on using our amazing emotes system, feel free to give others the “L” or just simply say hello in chat! Now you’re able to do many, many actions in chat and even do them to other people.

Hopefully you all enjoy this smaller update to the community experience! We have many more coming so stay tuned and keep an eye out on here!

- Enjoy the update! <3

Discord Emoji Contest

As most of y'all know, PartyZone now has an official discord, you can join it by clicking here. You may also know that we don't have many unique emotes... until now. To spruce up our discord and allow your creative minds to get going, the event team has decided it would be a great idea to host PartyZone's first ever, official, emote contest!

Prizes
There will be nine prizes to give away in this competition, first, second and third for each theme. The prizes are as follows:
First: VIP+, 10k coins, 50k discord credits and your emote implemented,
Second: VIP, 5k coins, 25k discord credits and your emote implemented,
Third: 2.5k coins, 15k discord credits and your emote implemented.

Themes
You probably noticed I said there will be prizes for each 'theme', you're probably wondering, what are the themes? Well, the three themes are as follows;
  • PartyZone- whether it be staff members, murder weapons, the PartyZone logo or anything else you can think of... if it's PartyZone, it counts!
  • Summer- palm trees, the sun, sitting inside on your computer all day... or anything you can think of! If it represents summer, it fits in with this bright theme!...
