Minecraft 1.8has been released! If you have your client profile set to use the latest Minecraft version, you will need to downgrade or create an alternate 1.7 profile to connect to Minetown while we wait for Bukkit to release a semi-stable update.
As most of you are probably aware by now, ModernDragoness decided to step down from her Co-Owner rank because she had to attend other dragoness duties elsewhere.
Her departure is without a doubt leaving a void in the Minetown management. I will also use this opportunity to leave this little note as a public word of thanks for everything she did for this server.
To resolve this management issue, a new rank was created in the staff; The Manager rank. (The Mod+ rank is also being eradicated)
This rank is meant to be "a mix of" the mod+ rank and the admin rank, with a few technicalities. The duties of the Managers will be quite diverse. They are in charge of the majority of the management on the server.
Instead of listing the very long list of things they are in position to do; let's put it simply: they have just as much decisive power as the owner rank. A distinction from the owner rank is that they will take actions as a group, and not as individuals.
The owner rank of course has veto power on their decisions, but I do not believe I will have to use it :).
So enough with the explanations, let me introduce you the new Managers!
Please give a warm "welcome" to DannyBoyG1, GRIFFF, Kosakriszi, Leronzadok and Pljz !
We are currently working together and planning a lot of changes for Minetown. You should hear about them soon!
After much planning and development, Minetown's guest tutorial is now live. Guests logging in for the first time on Agharta will be sent to a tutorial world. This provides both opportunity to learn about Minetown and the capability for self-serve rank-up to Member.
Tutorial World has three tutorial paths, each of a different length so guests can choose whether to gain only the most basic information for playing or learn a bit more about Minetown. Once a guest reaches the end of a path, they are asked a question based on path information and provided the means to visit the main Agharta world. The method of to-Member promotion depends on the path chosen.
As this is a big change in how membership is handled on Minetown, a thread has been made with more information. Click here to visit it.
