Frequently Asked Questions

What are the rules on Discord

The rules.

  • No spamming - We are looking at incorporating zero server chat to discord. This will give people the chance to talk to players in game but may also create spam in game, i intend to make general discussion the default chat in zero to avoid pointless discussion in zero.
  • Keep swearing to a minimum - Be aware of your surroundings some people are offended by profanity and realistically there is no need for it. I plan on creating more voice channels soon so if you are playing a game with a friend alone on a separate channel sure go for your life when swearing but please keep swearing to a minimum in main chat and main voice channels.
  • No bullying, trolling or being rude to any players - This is a big one we expect a maturity from our green membership, you part represent the server so being rude to other players is a big no.
  • Keep caps to a minimum - Self explanatory.
  • Do not post URL's to disturbing or pornographic content
  • No giving answers away - Discord chat is logged, do not help other players with answers for zero.
  • Have a problem with a player? Report them using the forum report system - Do not engage if a player is being nasty or rude, report them using the forum report system and a mod/op will deal with the situation. Ops/Mods if you need a log contact me.
  • Feel free to invite your friends to our discord.
  • Do not create a duplicate account to imitate an op or a mod or any other player for that matter.
  • Please change your nickname to suit your in game name. (Right click name then change nickname)

How old is the server?

The server started on October 22nd, 2010. It has been online ever since with no wipe of the original map. We believe ourselves to be the oldest minecraft server map still in use today. Aswell as one of the oldest servers.

I've been banned, how do I request to be unbanned?

The minr.org community takes bans very seriously. A lot of time and effort has been put into creating our niche community that has become truly one of a kind.

We treat each case fairly, but there are some things that will not be tolerated within our community.

When making a ban appeal, please provide as much information as possible. A well detailed appeal can greatly speed along the process.

Do not lie. The quickest way for your appeal to be denied is to lie to us. Our logs provide a reliable source of verification for the events surrounding your ban. We look far more favorably on those who are honest from the start.

If you wish you apply for a Ban Appeal you can select ban appeals from the top forum or alternatively click this link

How do I delete my forum account?

There is currently no way for a user to delete his or her account, though deleting forum accounts is possible through the admin panel. If anyone should want their forum account deleted, they should send a message Chillers to have it removed. If the reason is due to unwanted emails coming from the forums, there is the ability to change email accounts associated with the forum account, and this can be done by the user.

What is Zero.minr.org?

In a nutshell Zero is a Maze/Parkour/Adventure Server. We are a large community of adventurists and players who like to think outside the box, our unique membership entry system (beating FFA and the HC levels) ensures that the quality of our members are some of the most dedicated and trustworthy in minecraft.

Our Server has grown vastly in popularity and challenges. We have enough mazes, parkour and puzzles to keep you occupied for months.

We take membership very seriously and each individual is scanned before becoming a full member of the community. All of the challenges you play today are built by people who were once in the same boat as you.

We have intergrated our very own checkpoint and point system plugins to make your experience as enjoyable and less frustrating as possible.

Tagging people?

What types of map are there?

In FFA and FFA+, maps are organized by main challenge types. These include Mazes, Parkour, Puzzles, Searches, and Adventures. If a map is primarily parkour, then it will be found in the Parkour section of either FFA or FFA+. However, many maps have different types of challenges. If the course features a redstone torch above it, then the map is a blend of at least two types. Our goal here is to clarify what each type means, and in doing so, help you find the maps that you want to play.



[​IMG]
Parkour is a main challenge type, as it is the most common challenge type we have on zero! Parkour consists of getting from A to B using a path that presents physical difficulty or danger to cross. The most common form is in jumps across gaps, but we also include falling sections where the goal is to land safely at the bottom of a large descent.



[​IMG]
Maze is another main challenge type. Mazes are challenges of navigation through a series of branching paths. Most paths do not lead to the exit. Mazes typically allow you to backtrack, even if you find a dead-end. Mazes can be 2-dimensional or 3-dimensional, have changing pathways, and have possibly no dead-ends but a bunch of loops instead.



[​IMG]
Puzzles are a main challenge type. Puzzles require thinking beyond just finding an answer and applying it. Puzzles may require logic, deductive reasoning, and abstract thinking to be solved. They may come in the form of riddles, math problems, or clue sets. Most puzzles have defined rules, but some involve figuring out the essence of the challenge itself without anything said.



[​IMG]
Searches are a main challenge type. Searches involve finding some sort of "key" to "unlock" the correct path. This may involve finding signs with answer information, or hitting buttons that briefly open access to other buttons, or looking for some sort of hidden trigger to a locked door. As this is more looking than solving, this has been created and separated from the Puzzle type. Both Puzzles and Searches share the same rooms.



[​IMG]
Guesses are a sub-type, as no maps are pure Guess maps. Instead, Guess challenges are mixed in commonly with Mazes and Parkour. In a Guess challenge, the goal is to pick a correct path from a group of potential paths without any form of clues or insight. For this reason, Guesses are notorious for being time wasters, as it usually takes multiple tries to find the correct path. The punishment for choosing a wrong path is usually death or a large setback, and once committed to a path, there is no way to back out of it.



[​IMG]
Mobs are a sub-type as well. Mobs are challenges where the threat of dying to hostile mobs is present. Sometimes the mobs are to be avoided entirely, sometimes you will have to get through a few mobs to progress, and sometimes it is required for you to kill all the mobs before advancing. Some Mobs maps give armor and weapons before you have to face them.



[​IMG]
Co-op maps are a sub-type. Co-op maps are designed specifically for two or more people. The challenge may require you to work with another person to beat it, or it may pit you up against the other person. Some Co-op maps can be completed with only one person, but others require at least two people.



[​IMG]
Adventure maps are a main challenge type. They are unique in that they are a combination of at least three different types, and are typically longer than the average map. They focus around a story or a plot, and this plot goes beyond just an exposition at the beginning and a denouement at the end. The map follows the journey of the player and is molded around their experience as a person, instead of focusing solely on the environment.


Hopefully this guide helps to understand the meaning of each challenge type! Thanks for reading!
