New server opening for pre-release preview

We've opened up our new server (the one that will replace 2 months of Anarchy map soon, hopefully) for a limited preview.  The primary (factions) map will not be available however our lobby, creative and harcore survival (NyctoCraft) maps as well as the BattleZone (which may look familiar) will be available. 

Interested to learn more? Well, find your way to our IRC channel, ask how you can connect, then wait - it may take a few minutes for someone to respond, with the server information to connect.

We ask that any feedback for the server be written up as a reply to this post, in a thoughtful and organized manner.  Posts like "I want old YASMP" and "Spawn is ugly" are neither constructive nor useful in any and will be deleted.

Been Busy.

Just wanted to let everyone know I've been busy and gaming has been way way down on my priority list lately.  I know we had talked about setting up a new fancy Minecraft server but that's sort of fallen behind. The goal of Sept. 1st to open it up is not going to happen.  I'm not really sure when we'll get around to having it finished at this time.

Thank you for supporting Pwn9! But....

First. I'd like to thank everyone who has supported Pwn9 Gaming over the last 3 years, specially those of you who have DONATED to the cause to keep our various servers running, like Minecraft, Wolfenstein, These Forums, IRC, Mumble and more. It takes money and a lot of hard work and volunteered time by various staff members to make this all happen.

Just thought I'd share this, thought it was pretty funny.

Minecraft 1.6

I lost power during some storms and have been unable to update the server to 1.6, but Dream informs me there is a 1.6.2 update due out already for Monday.  Apparently lots of bugfixes and glitches in 1.6 that, we've geon from 1.6.1 to 1.6.2 within barely a week of the initial release. That's a big sad LOL, that MC developers can toss such a piece of GOB out on the market for everyone - and then all these servers and players clamor to get on the latest update as fast as possible, only to find all sorts of problems.

So we're going to sit and wait patiently for 1.6.2 and the stable/recommended bukkit version of it.  That could be another week possibly, until then enjoy the only slightly less glitchyt 1.5.2 that we are on now.

Thank you,

State of affairs.

Hey just wanted to drop a little update.. so Pwn9 has experienced some serious problems over the last month, between a massive griefing and then our server host moving datacenters then screwing up everything and leaving us with nothing but a laggy mess for over a week..  well, it's got Pwn9 on it's death bed.

No joke.  While Sage, Dream and Supa do their best to maintain things with YASMP a laggy, intermittent server just won't hold people.. and worse, once it's been that way a full week..  the people generally won't come back.

ATTENTION YASMP CLAN OWNERS

Due to a bug in the clans plugin involving how clan data is stored and somehow got corrupted, that we cannot seem to resolve..  we are going to be removing the clans plugin an deleting the clan database Sunday night, May 26th in order to resolve the problem.   We make a list of clan leades and re-pay them the cost of making a clan..  we suggest clan leaders make a note of their clan home coordinates so that they may reset the clan home... and make a list of your clan members..  YASMP and Pwn9 are only going to take responsibility to the existing clans leaders only..    we are making this move because inviting and doing stuff for your clan is pretty much completely broken and it may be the only way to fix it.
