Ok so heres a proposition…

so ive been thinking lately about how things are on the server and today whilst talking with wilson i had an idea, so here it is:

-scrap quest world

-scrap skyworld

-scrap update world

– keep nether, end (obviously lol)

-create new main world (with current main world being phased out over say a 3 month period)

-create new creative world (flatlands world type with creative, only open to ‘trusted’ member of say 4 months +)

-eventually scrap current main world

now this would mean only 3 worlds would remain, noob, new main and creative (excluding nether and end)

which is a lot less than the current 5. i thought that scrapping these worlds made sense as i have been tracking which worlds players are using and for over 90% of the time only main world was being used. This means by reducing or world sizes it would mean a cheaper server to run (unless we get a ton of new people) CORRECTION: the price wouldnt be affected by these changes, thanks cnc for letting me know.

tell me what you think in the comments below, i have a good idea in my head about the reactions to this proposition lol 😀

UPDATE: ok this is good, i wrote this to start a debate like this and the feedback is mixed, i was testing the waters to see what people thought about change and how people would react. Dont worry there arent any plans to scrap main world and nor would i like to see it go as there are many, many great structures that would be lost if that were to happen. Thanks for writing on this post, its been interesting.

Updates!

What a week folks! Obsidian died, we moved to a new hosting company, we got bukkit installed and painstakingly configured its setup, got our most recent backup restored, and are off and running! Here's a list of stuff you need to know:

We've officially committed to the new domain name, www.teh3l3m3nts.com, for this website and the server address (you still need to add the port to the server address in minecraft, so mc.teh3l3m3nts.com:1489).

We've set up the permission structure based on groups, and you can see the official list of commands per-group in the spreadsheet linked to on the sidebar. To see what group you're in, type /list.

Our map got uploaded, but we lost like 3 days of work from the last backup I downloaded. At this point it's been a week since any of us have worked on it, so hopefully it isn't too much of a shock :(

We'll be better about making backups public, you can see the link to the backup AND it's age on the sidebar. They're hosted to my (surf) dropbox in the public folder, so I'm not too concerned about data-loss. They're like 900MB, but whatev.

With the new control of the permissions and such, we're finally gonna list the server and see if we can't get some new players in. Hopefully we'll meet some cool people and get some epic structures going.

That's pretty much it, get the word out for the new address, if you haven't e-mailed us with contact info hit us up at minecraftpisspants@gmail.com and let's get back to some mining!
