Why Are There No Guards / Can I Be A Guard?
We are not currently seeking Guards just yet. The Guard recruitment process is scheduled to begin sometime the week of August 6th.
What Mods Are Allowed?
You are allowed to have Optifine. When asking what mods are allowed, this is the general rule of thumb to go by: If it gives you an obvious unfair advantage, then it is not allowed. Just go with your best judgement. An example of a forbidden mod is X-ray. (You are only allowed to have X-ray if you are an AlphaGuard/Warden).
What Does Non-OP Mean?
It means that in this server you're expected to work and grind. Here there isn't any of that Efficiency 10 diamond pickaxe, 1-mine-per-rank, 26 ranks stuff that are a cornerstone of the OP Prison experience. This is the RPG type of prison server, in which there are generally 6 prison ranks, D to Free, which cost various amounts to rank up to, and real prison blocks which you'll call home for a time as you work your way up the system. In other words, this isn't your usual type of Prison minigame part-of-a-bigger-server-of-minigames, as most OP Prisons are -- this server's main attraction is the prison itself, and the prison itself takes time to work your way out of, unlike OP Prisons. Since there are fewer ranks, it takes more time to work your way up to the next rank, but in return you're actually granted an entire prison block to call home while you work, including cells, a bank, a central foyer, a pool, and various odd jobs unique to each block.
What Is The Warp To CI_Bank? Will It Clear My Inventory?
This warp takes you to the bank of Central Island, an area designed to be a main hub for all blocks, like C Foyer is for most prison servers. Thus, in this case, CI stands for Central Island, not Clear Inventory, and so does not clear your inventory when clicked.
Why Do A Lot Of People Seem To Have A Shared History?
A lot of Prison Island's population hails from a now-deceased server called Convicted. For the longest time, it was the longest-running prison server, and it attracted hundreds of thousands of different players over its lifetime. It has since shut down, however. Prison Island was created by some old Convicted players, and so a good portion of its population is made up of former Convicted players.
