February 14th Update
So we’ve been up for almost a week, and accepted a bunch of playeres in to help stress test the server, and get a head start on construction.
Tomorrow there’s a good chance that a new snapshot will be out, so I’ll make a post on here when it’s up and I’ve upgraded. If you want to continue playing on this server, do not upgrade until the server itself has upgraded, or you will not be able to connect. I’m very busy, but I will try to take a bit of time to bump the server up. Hopefully all goes well and we get the new height max.
To those accepted but not yet whitelisted, I understand that many are anxious to play. The problem is, we upgraded to the new snapshots and have the new biomes. We cannot go back to 1.1 without problems, so we’re sticking with the latest snapshots. Once we’re at 1.2, we’ll stay on that with bukkit, only upgrading when bukkit does so we have block protection. The reason I’ve required your guys’ twitters or emails, is so that I can notify you when we open the doors. I will personally email you or tweet you, so even if you miss the update on tumblr, you’ll findout through me.
To all of the new guys playing on the server, I’d like to say thanks for joining. It has gone exceptionally smooth. I haven’t had to ban anyone, kick, or tell someone to cut out whatever they were doing. This makes my job extremely easy, and allows me to have fun playing and building with you guys, so for that thank you. I look forward to playing and building more along side everyone, as well as taking a look at your guys’ structures in the future.
That being said, I have some things to question the current whitelisters about, so I’ll either set up an email, poll, or just talk to you guys in game.
If anyone has some screenshots they would like to submit, please do so, there is a small button in the top right corner that says “Submit” when you mouse over it. If you include a picture, try to say who built it, or where it is. Chances are I’ll post it up for everyone to see.
