Hello everyone!

We experienced a bit of downtime due to a error when upgrading the website. I was able to fully recover the website database, after an abrupt shutdown of the server during the upgrading process. :rage: At this time, all avatars are lost. Because of this annoyance, I have allowed the upload of custom avatars. Enjoy! :D

Also I have added about 90 smilies so you can express yourself's with those if you choose too!
:muted::woot::spam::spiderwho::penguin::pompusass::zombie::poop:

We also added a Facebook page at the bottom! We would appreciate it if you like/follow our page! :happy:

Thanks for your continued support!

Hello everyone,

I would like to take the time to introduce a few new staff members to the forums and community!

Moderators:

First, I would like to start of by introducing someone who has been here for awhile. @hellspawn3200 was promoted to a moderator some time back. He has been an active member of the forums, helped build on the server, and has provided lots of feedback. Thanks for all your help!

Programmers:

@codeman has joined the team. Codeman is a programmer that has joined us and will be helping implement features and fix bugs. He has already made some useful utilities for us and all the code looks very professional. Thanks @codeman!

I would like to introduce @hposej who has been a long time builder. He has recently teamed up with us in an effort to help code the plugins. He'll continue to work along side us as the project progresses. Hposej is also the build team leader. He is in charge of helping manage builders and builds.

Contributors:

I would also like to thank a few people who have been helping produce custom models and other content for the server.

@CaveyJ for helping with making models and textures. He constantly helps manage and keep an eye on things when I am busy. I appreciate your support.

@Cyberlogical for helping with models and textures. She has made some creative and unique things for you all to enjoy on the server. She continues to provide support and her help is greatly appreciated! She also taught me a few things about Africa and Australia which was pretty cool!

@cloudfr for helping with the build process on the hub and our other worlds. Your custom hand made terrain is the best!

Server Progress:
Updates on the server are coming soon! A beta release is coming soon too! We are all super excited about bringing you a fun game mode. The name and type of game mode will be announced soon!

Also please take a moment and thank these individuals! They have contributed a lot and without them the project would take even longer! Thanks ladies and gents!

Thanks for reading!

P.S. Please forgive me if I left off any names!
