If your immediate question is: “What the heck is a Nixbot?!” then please check this post for details.
Next question: Why would Nixbot need your help?
Well, the thing is that there is currently no easy way for Nixbot/Boundlexx to get the details for a world regarding whether public edit permissions or public plotting/claim permissions have been set. As a result, when people are trying to find the best worlds for a specific resource, they commonly run into the problem of the world having public visit permissions, but no permissions to actually edit the blocks to get said resources!
How do we fix this horrid situation?!
Ideally with an officially supported API source! But such a thing is not currently available…
The next option is to put it out to the people! One such step was to create forum posts for your world indicating whether you have set public edit and plot permissions. Useful but pretty cumbersome.
The next solution, you can hop onto the TNT Discord server and tell Nixbot directly! The best part about this solution is that you don’t need to feel awkward about reporting it for a world that isn’t your own, it’s actually highly encouraged! On top of this, all world reportings are sent to Boundlexx itself so anyone using it will have access to the information.
Okay, what do I do?
- Head onto the TNT Discord Server
- Head to the #nixbot-news-events channel to get instructions on how to use the command
- Head to the #boundless-commands channel to use the command
Hopefully in the long-term we will see a solution that doesn’t rely on such methods, and can retrieve all the information for all the worlds, but for now it kinda seems like it’s this or nothing.
