To whom it may concern,

I am sure you are keenly aware by this point that I have been very busy with many things in life recently. After all, it was for this reason that I outsourced to foreign personnel (e.x. danielpmc, and HoiTemmieColeg) to run the server temporarily during this time. I stressed that this will in fact only be temporary, and temporary it was. I just finished several classes, my work schedule is now sorted out, and I am now in a personalized training program on a strict schedule. This combined allows me to spend more hours on the server then ever before. I just finished updating the server to 1.14 and just now to 1.14.1, and i'm sure several people are excitedly waiting for vote crates and the like. I will now run the server once again and soon we'll have this server updated as fresh as it was 6 months ago.

Sincerely,
Senior Founder

It has occurred to me that up until this point we have had no good way to interact with the forum from our mobile devices. This is a big problem because that means that we are not able to respond in good time to replies to our threads, or not at all even if you don't have email notifications set up. I have taken this into my own hands and decided to link our forum with Tapatalk and create a dedicated group in order for us to read/write to the forum on the go. Simply search for it on Tapatalk and follow the group, logging in with the username and password you specified when you registered for the forums. Then go to the forums you want to get push notifications for, and enable push to feed. This is revolutionary for the server because now we can have an active forum once again, and people won't have to deal with the clunky mobile website when you can do everything from Tapatalk.

Yes, you heard me correctly. I have took it upon myself to roll out 1.7 support once again to the whole network, after multiple developers have implemented fixes in their plugins that adds back support for legacy clients. You can now play mini-games like prison on 1.7 to achieve much higher frame rates then you could ever dream of in 1.8 and above. I have also implemented some performance fixes for the trees plugin on prison, allowing synchronous instead of asynchronous chunk read without hindering performance, this fixes common crashes we have been experiencing lately. It is not all good news though, I also want to stress that I will be dropping support for 1.8 on the network very shortly, because of just how unstable it is compared to any other Minecraft version. Everyone has had a bad experience on the server when playing on 1.8, and it is for this reason that I am planning on dropping support for it by the end of the month. If I do not drop support completely, there will be a...

The moment we've all been waiting for; Prison has finally returned to our beloved network. It was removed a couple years ago due to complications involving lack of server resources and not having enough active builders to make for a decent prison mini-game at the time. However, now the server has been revived and we now have a decent active player base once again, prison has finally been re-imagined better then ever before on our network. We've got different mines A-Z and 5 prestige levels, along with a custom spawn and pvp arena. Not to mention, a full rewrite of the inefficient and outdated ElementalTrees plugin, one suited for tens of thousands of trees with no server lag. I personally invite you to come and try our brand new prison mini-game, and build tree farms to the sky, racing your friends to rank Z along the way! It is an experience you would never want to miss, you can stack layers upon layers of trees and never run out of money, using auto sell to fully automate your...

After many ban evasions using our discord server, I have taken it upon myself to enhance security on the server by linking warnings, bans, chat, anti-swear, etc. with our discord server. In order to do anything on the discord server, you are now required to link your discord id with your minecraft account using a code given to you in game. That way if you ever evade with a proxy, or get banned from the server, you can no longer do anything on the discord server. This prevents people who are banned from harassing staff and the person who reported them, through the discord server of all things. You can thank this enhanced security partially for danielpmc who took advantage of the system on multiple occasions which directly influenced the enhanced security measures you see today.

As we begin the long migration away from per world mini-games to per server mini-games, something needs to be done about chat. You see, if you have players on different servers, chat is normally not synced between the two. After much experimentation, I've decided that the best solution to this problem would be a pub/sub system that doesn't involve sql of any sort. First I tried using plugin messaging channels, but that didn't work out so well considering a player needed to be online at both ends for it to work as expected. I realize now that the most reliable and large-scale pub/sub system would be Redis, and I have begun migrating everything over to that. So far it's working very reliably and has no sign of messing up in the near future. It's even async so it doesn't interfere with gameplay, so that's a big plus in my eyes. What this means to all of you guys, is that you will be able to see what your friend is saying in one server as you are in another, making it a much more...

As of January 18th, expect an entire new atmosphere on the server, as I am doing a full redesign of the network and making it not so archaic. Yes, I know this is out of the blue, but follow me here. The server hasn't been changed much since two years ago, during which Hlal and ItzzSep made major builds for the server which attracted many players. Since then, the philosophy of what is a good minecraft server and one that's modern has drastically changed, and we need to adjust to the new standards. I have personally seen people come on to our once very futuristic and professional looking server, and shutting us down for it not being up to today's standards. This is what has motivated me recently to do some drastic redesign work on the server, and you will begin seeing some much newer designs implemented throughout. I am also doing some major internal changes because the way I have been doing it for a few years now hasn't been working. You see, I have been way too lenient with staff...

Due to the influx of complaints from players on the server about the design of our previous forum, I have taken it upon myself to put down a lot of money into a professional forum for our network. You will begin seeing the same things you saw posted before, but this time reposted on our new forum. One of the best new features you will notice is that you will finally be able to properly embed youtube and vimeo videos inside your ban reports, so now your reports will look professional once again just like they did last time we had XenForo as our forum software for the server.
