Recent Website Changes

Hi Everyone,

First, Happy Holidays!

Second;

So after the last round of updates to the website We started getting complaints about thread comments being different, things missing, ect. This wasnt intentional. The main purpose of the updates is to keep the website secure but it appears that one of the modules we use has change quite a bit.

I'm currently on vacation for the next week but here's the plan:

1. Comment below on the changes you noticed and what you thought of them.

2. When I get back from Vacation I will review all the comments and do my best to fix any issues you all point out.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Just wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, etc.

It's been a rough year for Minecraft at Pwn9, but there is still a core community of gamers here that play Guildwars, Clash Of Clans, etc.

For those who still log into the main pwn9.com Minecraft server from time to time, you'll notice that the lag is currently unbearable.  This is due to our host, CloudAtCost.  They have vastly oversubscribed their disk array, and our main Minecraft server is suffering very badly for it.  They have informed me that they are trying to bring a new array online, but honestly, I don't know when that will be, if it will make a difference, or how long it will be before it's oversubscribed again.

MC: Spigot 1.8 Released and the status of PWN9 Minecraft!

That's right! Spigiot has released Bukkit, CraftBukkit, Spigot-API and Spigot server for Minecraft 1.8! "when will pwn9 update?" We don't have an exact answer to that right now. Wolvereness has already indicated he is going to serve spigot with a DMCA takedown notice. We are monitoring this and may choose to not update.  Additionally We have plugin testing to do to see what plugins still work and which ones are broken. Due to the pending Takedown notice from Wolvereness, some plugin developers have chosen not to update their plugins. All of these things have the ability to hinder our ability to update.

On that note, I'm happy to report that Tremor and Sage are hard at work updating their plugins (some of which are already good-to-go!).

Taxes in Towny are no more

We've decided to eliminate taxes from Towny.  We don't want people's towns to vanish, simply because they haven't logged in for a while.

We reserve the right to change our minds at some point in the future, if it makes sense to re-enable them again.

Sorry...

I dun goofed.

I moved a database the other day, and accidentally broke Towny permissions on the YASMP server.

In order to fix this, I had to roll back the server to a point before the change.  So if you've done anything in the past two days, I apologize, you will have to re-do it.

Regards,

Sage

What's going on in the world of Minecraft?

Just sitting here pondering what the heck is going on with Minecraft these days. After all the hullabaloo of the Bukkit Fiasco and then the Microsoft Buyout (not to mention the DMCA Takedown of craftbukkit) - it seems like Minecraft is on hiatus. All the while Pwn9 is sitting in the best shape Minecraft-wise in a long time with 2 (maybe 3, plus test servers) and half a dozen public maps, all for free with now paid ranks..  sitting completely empty (granted we're on 1.7.9 still).  All leaving me to wonder... is Minecraft still alive?  Who is still playing?  Where are you playing?  What sort of things can Pwn9 do while Minecraft is in neverland...

MineSoft? MicroCraft?

Well, I'm sure everyone has heard by now.  Fox asked a question about what this means for Pwn9, so I thought I'd throw out my $0.02.  The other staff are encouraged to share their views, as well.

At the moment, the community is full of speculation.  Here's some interesting places to go read more:
