Important Server Announcement:
Please read this start to finish, as there are important details.
We’ve upgraded to 1.2.3, and are back on Bukkit, and this means that soon we will be whitelisting all of the people that were accepted but not yet whitelisted while we waited for a stable bukkit version and land protection. This means that if you have something important to protect, I suggest you read this page for information on how to safe keep your valuables. The onus is on the player to understand and have anything valuable protected. I have also updated the rules section, so type /rules in game or click here for information on that.
If you do not have enough protection blocks to save a larger work, please email me (email@example.com) and include the location (coordinates) of your work and how many blocks you will need (If it’s 10 blocks long, and 5 blocks wide, 10x5=50, so you’d need 50 blocks. If you want some surrounding area protected as well, take that into consideration when doing your estimate).
If I catch people zoning other player’s works on purpose to use as a form of griefing, or just being a douchebag, you’ll be jailed or banned.
I’m aiming to start a gradual trickle of new players starting this weekend, maybe Sunday, so it would be best if you had marked off and protected your lands by then.
I will also be posting an update soon about new staff members. My current plan is to offer several players the opportunity to be “guides”. They’ll be given a different colored name, and tasked with helping out new players with general inquiries and things like protection help. There will be a non-game-breaking reward associated with this, as well as potential to move up to moderator (kick, jail, teleport and chat related commands), and potentially further. This is because as much as I’d like to kick around and help all you lovely people, I’m very busy with school and work at the moment.
Last but most certainly not least, with the new influx of players, and not having conducted a solid stress test, we may experience some lag due to heavy server usage and such. I’ll do my best to find a sweet spot number of how many players can be logged in at a time though, so not to worry. To help reduce this server stress, and increase the amount of players we can have online and the overall power of the server, please consider donating. I run this server on my money; being a University Student with only a part time job during non-summer months means I do not have a lot of money to spend on things like this. Sending a few dollars this way is an easy and cheap way to support the server so we can continue to run and provide you with days of entertainment. I will also introduce a VIP system if we are often at player cap, giving players who donate to keep the server running (and get it upgrades) a reserved slot on the server. YOU WILL NEVER BE KICKED to make room for one of these VIP players, however.
More updates to follow over the next week or two.
So with that, I’d like to thank all of the new players (and the old) for playing here, and making it a great little community. It’s your guys’ easy going nature and good looks that makes running this show so easy for me, so cheers to you!
