I see a players who never read te forum, they didn't apply and they spam on chat like a normal Minecraft Server. Maybe with the Whitelist the server is a little more protected by griefers, toxic players etc.
As stated before it is not yet implemented. Q would have to change some stuff around before it is.The funny thing is that still players who dont know anything about the roles can walking around cause they simply /call them out or /warp so they didnt really have to do this. If fix this all is ok i think.
Perfect idea, the problem about some new players is about they just know the domain but they don't know anything about how mcme works.It seems to me that an 'ingame whitelist' is an interesting and novel way to go.
I imagine that it would be relatively trivial to create a new player world (sounds like we are doing that already) in which people who join for the first time are placed. They could be given a special rank with even fewer perms than thralls (i.e. no /warp, or /call, etc...) until they answer a series of questions (command blocks could be used...) based on information about LOTR and MCME (all of which can be easily found on TolkeinGateway or our forums). Once questions are properly answered, they could be auto-promoted to Thrall and warped to Bagend.
Just a thought.
Something like this has already been made. Q just needs to hook things up.
