Alright ladies and gents, Children of all ages...
The new world isn't exactly as ready as it should be for all of you, but we are sure all of you are ready for it! The Whitelist is currently off, and anyone can join again. Although, be prepared for a small surprise in your entrance...
The rules are generally the same. You'll find them all where you spawn.
We have opened the doors before we could build our mega-fortress or community fortress for that matter... and as such for a limited time monsters are actually turned off.
However before going any further, we would like to reinforce this one simple concept. We assume if your on Sharenator, you already know how to screenshot? Well here's the thing ladies and gents... While we do have alternative systems in place, the absolute best thing you can do if you see anyone doing anything bad, or anything that could be considered evidence in griefing, is screenshot it and report it to us.
How should you let us know? Easy! Post the picture of the little bastard on this very sharenator post! Just remember if you accuse someone falsely you'll be in trouble too...
For our server to survive we'll need your cooperation...
...for our server to strive we'll need you to help as much as you can!
So without further annoyingness...
The server info, once again, is still
Believe it or not, Dawn gave up on Jdogg and Tall coming back. As such, Dawn also gave up on Towny. Don't get me wrong, even I thought it might turn out to be a fun idea. But after talking it over with her the mindset seems to be what made the original server so great was how close to Vanilla Beta it was, almost completely clean of mods and addons altogether.
So Dawn requested that I get some form of Antibuild and a Chest Protect type program. Or figure out how to make a safe bank for her. Given that the idea I had for a bank involves lots of bedrock, minecarts, and redwire (Which is vulnerable to explosives apparently... ) I'm working on the Chest Protect-type thing now. With any luck, the server will be up and open within the next 2-4 hours. Worst case it will definitely be up tomorrow.
I know some of you have been waiting a long time, and getting very angry at the downtime. But I can honestly say to those of you who have silently waited, biting your tongues and practicing your patience, I thank you from the bottom of where my heart would be if I had one. Dawn and I have been quite busy recently so work on the server has been slow. I know for a fact I wouldn't have the patience for waiting so long, but you all did. So give yourself a hug and a pat on the back, soon you'll be welcome in the New World, and I hope to hell it was worth the wait.
Server is back in Dawn's control, and currently being worked on. It will be open again within a day or two.
Requested Backup Links to the Old World:
Alright, let's start off with the basics.
The server has been subject to a large-scale attack that is hard to describe, homes are ruined and the rail system is completely fucked over. We thought everyone could actually be mature about this, that everybody would work together towards a better community. We've been proven wrong, as always, by mankind's ability to be a complete and total prick when there's nothing that can be done against them.
So in light of the situation, we also have to mention that financially we are incapable of making the payment for this month's subscription fee. In other words, the server will be shut down in roughly 15 days. It was fun for the very short amount of time it lasted, but somebody had to go and ruin everything for everyone. We have more then a few people we suspect of doing it, but the sad and unfortunate truth is they got away with it and we don't know exactly who to punish, so we have to punish everyone. Happy Friday the 13th you prick, we hope it was worth it.
Or rather, that's what they'd like to read we'd guess. However they underestimate how stubborn we are when we are angry. Did you really believe we didn't have a backup? That we were incapable of bouncing back from such a petty and useless little attack? It's honestly a shame, if you hadn't decided to be an ass we wouldn't have lost 12 hours worth or work. On the other hand, that doesn't matter to us since we're now implementing harsher security systems to prevent future situations such as this one. If anything, the server has actually been made better.
After consulting with our most trusted moderators and mods-to-be that were on, the server is going to be turned off shortly, then restarted. And by restarted, we mean a brand new fresh and shiny, un-touched server/world. Then we're going to work on it for 2-3 days preparing it for use again with a better system and layout then before, and make it public again.
When we first made the server, we had little if not no experience in running one. We've been a GM on WoW before and that's about it. Now after a month we have seen many things we wanted to change, and many things that could have been better. This time we'll be using a more secure setup to ensure that those changes happen.
While we know for a fact that this will be heartbreaking to some, we implore you all to view this in the same manner as us. This server is the closest thing we have to friends we can speak with in real-time, we cannot express with words how much we do not want to see it go. It's a source of pride, a social medium to find new people, and most of all a symbol of the bonds between Sharenators and the things that can be achieved through teamwork. There are countless examples of such already on the server.
Now imagine those bonds, that determination, that iron will to create in a new fresh untapped environment. The potential is all there, the question is whether or not you'll stick around to take advantage of it.
The next few days will be rough for those of us on the newly formed team running the server, and we're sure it will be rough for those who enjoyed playing on it. We will be uploading the most recent 3 backup saves we had as soon as we have access to them so anyone can download them here.
We thank all of you for choosing to have spent time on our server, and hope that in the future you'll return to us during the Revival Period.
This is for the record...
...Your only upset because we can buy our eggs in Malta for 7 cents a piece, then sell them here for 5 cents a piece at a profit.
