New Admin

Hey everyone, becja here.

As you can see, I’ve been given control over the day to day management of the server. As many of you know, SpaceBug is extremely busy with his work and hasn’t had a lot of time to manage the server. This way, the server gets attention and he doesn’t have to stress about it 🙂

If you follow along at all in the forums, you know many aspects of the server are in serious need of a facelift. I’ve come up with a couple ideas that I think will really work well for us, but wanted to see what you all think first. You can find the full outline of my idea here

Once you’ve read that, please share your opinion on a couple of the two biggest changes here. Please note, you have to be logged in to vote. If you haven’t already, go to the forums, log in, then come back.

Edit: Just to make sure everyone knows, if we do end up with one world, both SMPWorld and NEWWorld will be put up for download, so no worries about all your hard work just vanishing.

    I think this is good for all of us. I haven’t seen many players in the past 1-3 months. -- I think this Idea will bring a lot more players back and hopefully get a fresh start! 🙂 -Roo

    yea i agree i think its good for the server who knows maybe it will bring players from the old world back who quit when the new world came out as well as bring new players!

    I like these ideas and they would certainly re-fresh the server and get me back online. Could a system of getting something for our old world progress be used also to reward the people who who start over. Nothing major just maybe for every 100k the player has currently they would get an extra 100 claim blocks to begin with or something. So that it wouldn’t ‘over-power’ existing players but so we had a slight boost.

      I wasn’t really planning on carrying anything over from the other worlds, besides possible current donor name colors. Check out the forum post for more information. Really would like to see everyone start on the same page

    Having an admin/mod/helper on more will help keep new people around.

    Afraid I am quite underwhelmed by everything I have heard so far and there are no guarantees that any new world will be any better maintained than the old ones.

    Also if you are going to go ahead with a relaunch you may as well wait for the Bukkit replacement and do it all properly with 1.8.

      Sorry you feel that way. Only guarantee is that I’m not nearly as busy as Space is.

      Couple reasons for not waiting for 1.8

      1) The CraftBukkit replacement (Sponge) has no release date
      2) Would then have to wait for plugin developers to update to 1.8 features.

      All in all, it could still be many many months before any viable 1.8 solutions are available.

    i think its beter to leave the server at 1.7 by now, cuzz alot of other servers are still 1.7 and not 1.8 + 1.8 gives more lagg then 1.7
