Mapping out the Main World

So, in an attempt to help revitalize this withering community, I've started putting together a map of the server. Here's my progress so far:

teh3l3m3nts map June 15

I tried to display as many builds and landmarks as I could find, but I had a hard time finding the official names of most of the locations I've marked. I would like to thank KingOfThePond, a.k.a. JDawg, for his help in identifying some of the locations and their names and, if you have any suggestions as to what other points might go on the map or have corrections you'd like to make to existing pin points, please say so in the comments.

What the fuck!? Where is everybody…?

Not sure if this is reaching anyone, at this point. It seems the server has kind of petered out, which is somewhat disappointing considering the history that has taken place here over the past few years *sniff* *sniff*. But enough with nostalgia.

When I left, Teh3l3m3nts had a strong and thriving  population. I, myself, had grown somewhat bored of Minecraft and, with the increasing workload, did not feel the urge to allocate time towards it.

Now that I'm finally out of school and getting ready to truly relax for the first time in ages, I thought I might take a little stroll down memory lane.

What I found, however, is that memory lane is now a ghost town. Completely deserted. No blog posts since January. Nobody online. Nothing.

At first I thought I had just walked in during one of those slow periods on the server, but after 3 days of complete solitude, I have concluded that I am the sole survivor of some apocalyptic disaster that has wiped every other person off the face of the map and, yet, left the terrain and all man made creations completely unscathed.

What sort of disaster could have caused the entirety of the Teh3l3m3ntal community to just up and vanish, I don't know. What is important now, though, is that we rebuild; reignite the flame that once burned within all of our hearts.

If anyone is out there, anyone at all who might have survived the deadly plague that ravaged our land, I ask that you join me.

Join me in continuing the expansion of this once vibrant server and one day, maybe, we will return it to its former glory.

I'd like to congratulate Merijnwouda and Pirate06 on their incredible buildings. Judging will begin promptly but, for now, leave your vote for which building you think is best in the comments (edit: or in the opinion poll).

Technical Support Requested!

UPDATE: All is well, apparently I had to run Minecraft as an administrator so that I could update it. Thanks Cncr04s

I have 3 computers, 1 mac laptop, 1 mac mini desktop, and 1 windows 7 desktop. I have been able to upgrade minecraft on all three of these computers very quickly in the past, but, for some reason, minecraft refuses to update on my pc. I open it, login, and it asks me to update. If I say yes then it gets stuck at about 10% saying "Downloading content" or whatever. If I say no, it skips over every part of the loading screen and gets stuck at about 90% with "Done loading". I've managed to update minecraft on both of my mac computers just fine, but this pc is just not complying. Here are my specs:

Operating system: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit (6.1, Build 7601)

System Manufaturer: HP-Pavilion

Processor: Intel Pentium Dual CPU E2200 @2.20GHz (2 CPUs), ~2.2GHz

Memory: 3072MB RAM

DirectX Version: DirectX 11

Let me know if any other information is needed and, if you know what problem I'm facing or if you are having the same one, please let me know.
