Futher to the last post we have now updated to minecraft version 1.9.2 and the whitelists have been removed. There are a couple of things to note with this update. Firstly, due to the plugins being outdated and abandoned by their respective devs, Modreq and Ranker Stats are no longer a thing on either server. If you need a staff member either message them directly, mail them or message on the website and ranking up through the SMP system will be put on hold until an alternative plugin can be found for logging time and mob kills or an alternative method for ranking up can be found (the stats from before are saved in a config file, don't worry :-P). Secondly, the End WILL NOT BE OFF-LIMITS as I suggested may happen in the comments of the last post. The Elytra will be open to whoever can get a pair and will only be available when dungeons release thereafter.
The question has been touched upon in the comments of the last post. The world has not been changed and is staying as it is for this update, however, the idea had come up in staff for a world reset and was due to be discussed at the next staff meeting but now seems like a good time to look into it. We wanted to get your opinions on this and a poll will be available on the right of the homepage somewhere for you to vote on it and if need be a forum thread can be made for staff and players to discuss it. Many of us are quite well established on the server as it is so the thinking is that a world reset may add another challenge to the survival server.
