MC: Spigot 1.8 Released and the status of PWN9 Minecraft!

That's right! Spigiot has released Bukkit, CraftBukkit, Spigot-API and Spigot server for Minecraft 1.8! "when will pwn9 update?" We don't have an exact answer to that right now. Wolvereness has already indicated he is going to serve spigot with a DMCA takedown notice. We are monitoring this and may choose to not update.  Additionally We have plugin testing to do to see what plugins still work and which ones are broken. Due to the pending Takedown notice from Wolvereness, some plugin developers have chosen not to update their plugins. All of these things have the ability to hinder our ability to update.

On that note, I'm happy to report that Tremor and Sage are hard at work updating their plugins (some of which are already good-to-go!).

Taxes in Towny are no more

We've decided to eliminate taxes from Towny.  We don't want people's towns to vanish, simply because they haven't logged in for a while.

We reserve the right to change our minds at some point in the future, if it makes sense to re-enable them again.

Sorry...

I dun goofed.

I moved a database the other day, and accidentally broke Towny permissions on the YASMP server.

In order to fix this, I had to roll back the server to a point before the change.  So if you've done anything in the past two days, I apologize, you will have to re-do it.

Regards,

Sage

What's going on in the world of Minecraft?

Just sitting here pondering what the heck is going on with Minecraft these days. After all the hullabaloo of the Bukkit Fiasco and then the Microsoft Buyout (not to mention the DMCA Takedown of craftbukkit) - it seems like Minecraft is on hiatus. All the while Pwn9 is sitting in the best shape Minecraft-wise in a long time with 2 (maybe 3, plus test servers) and half a dozen public maps, all for free with now paid ranks..  sitting completely empty (granted we're on 1.7.9 still).  All leaving me to wonder... is Minecraft still alive?  Who is still playing?  Where are you playing?  What sort of things can Pwn9 do while Minecraft is in neverland...

MineSoft? MicroCraft?

Well, I'm sure everyone has heard by now.  Fox asked a question about what this means for Pwn9, so I thought I'd throw out my $0.02.  The other staff are encouraged to share their views, as well.

At the moment, the community is full of speculation.  Here's some interesting places to go read more:

Webchat (IRC) Notice

Hi Everyone,

If you go to our IRC page you may notice that the webchat client looks different...and you are right.

The webchat client we were using (webchat.esper.net) is hosted by esper.net folks and has unfortunately gone offline. While we do expect esper to fix it and bring it back online, we have put Kiwi Webchat in its place until that happens.

If the Esper.net folks decide to let their webchat die they we will be sticking with Kiwi.

Apologies for the inconvenience.

Battlezone is Here!!!!!

Thats Right! Battlezone is here and all arena's are open!

There's one change you may or may not notice that we made. Previously, the winner(s) only got 90% of the total pot. We have decided to change that  and now the winner (1v1) will get 100% of the pot or in the case of teams, 100% of the pot will be split among the winners! Thats 10% more winnings! We also kept the entry fees the same ($25 in game money)!
