NOTICE: I need to update the images in this guide because they were taken a long time ago. In the meantime, you can always pm me if something isn't clear. Replying to this thread doesn't always guarantee I'll see it. PMs are safer. This is a guide I made explaining the step-by-step most effective procedure for getting rid of griefers in your housing. As seen on TV! This guide is different than other housing protection guides, as it tells you what to do if you are caught in a situation where there is a live griefer in your housing, not just how to avoid it. 1. Always be on watch. That's a general rule. Watch the sky, too, in case someone is planning a giant water grief. Extremely hard to deal with. Also, if you're the owner of a housing, let's say a free build, you wouldn't want to go AFK without giving your trusted Co-Owners permission to ban/kick. Always watch for griefers, and your housing will become thoroughly more enjoyable for everyone, except the griefer, of course. 2. Turn off water placing in your house. Also a general rule. Make it so that only Co-Owners/you can place water, then give the people you do not fully trust Resident. Then they can't place water. Water griefs are seriously bad news, especially if the water gets outside your plot. If water does get outside your plot, refer to this post. 3. Use the roles as intended! Give people that you don't fully trust but allow to build Resident. Co-Owner role is good for moderation, aka let them kick/mute. I wouldn't recommend letting them ban, but it's all up to you. You can customize each role's permissions inside of your menu. 4. In the situation of finding a griefer, your first step is always to turn off Build Mode, which can be done from within the Menu. (It's the stone pickaxe!) Now nobody can build in your house until you turn it back on, even you. Make sure to turn Build Mode back on when you're finished dealing with the griefer. 5. Banning that griefer. You suspect this might prove slightly difficult, as griefers tend to try flying away when the housing owner comes dashing at them violently holding a nether star. You needn't worry! Here are two fool-proof methods of banning/kicking griefers. You could use commands, which I think are a little faster. To ban, /h ban [name] To kick, /h kick [name] Of course, whether you decide to ban or to kick griefers is totally up to you, but I would recommend banning them, as they can just keep coming back after a kick. Another method you could use if you don't know the exact details of the griefer's name but know the general idea: Go into your player listing within the nether star menu, From there, you can see a list of all players in your housing. You can also click on their heads and edit their permissions, kick them, mute them, and ban them. Hurray! The paper is switching their rank. It cycles from guest to resident to co-owner and back to guest again. The wood door is kicking them. The iron door is banning them. The iron bars are muting them so they can't chat in your house. They can still communicate through signs, though. You'll still get this window popup if you just right click on them with a nether star (If you're the owner.) or ghast tear (If you're a housing co-owner. Note: It'll only show what the owner has given you permission to alter as a co-owner). That's all for now on Housing Griefer Safety Procedures. Minimize the damage done to your housing, and get the griefer banned/kicked without any hassle! Cheers!
