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.
The main server has been updated to version 1.2.4. There shouldn't be much plugin issues, if you encounter any, please report them on the forum or via ingame petition.
MCMMO is also re-enabled on the server. The XP and item gains have been nerfed.
There was also few changes in the functioning of staff promotions and management, such as the creation of the staff manager rank and changes in the handling of ban appeals.
But those changes shouldn't reflect much on the Minetown community, they simply help to organize and to coordinate the staff even more.
Our mobile site has also been launched in the last days. It is still being developed and should receive a bunch of updates in the next weeks. You can access it via http://m.minetown.net, soon, a script will be put in place to redirect you to this address if you are viewing the website with a mobile device. Thanks to our developer Colddev for this project.
On another note, the recent updates caused some flakiness in our automated donation system. If you are still a guest or didn't receive your promotion after you donated, please contact a staff member. We apologize for the inconvenience, the issue will be resolved shortly.
I personally don't have an issue with it, but seeing as it was announce months ago and is being enforced since the start of august it could cause problems with some other members. Idk if it is enough for the whole website/server to be shutdown but
Technically there are reasons it mostly is not a problem. However, before the public drama began, I had already started talking with sawine about donor perks and have been considering rebuilding how the system works.
All donations goes into paying for the server and into the maintenance, improvement and expansion of the EximiusGaming network. Running Minetown is expensive and your donations help to make it grow and succeed. Thanks for your donations and support that helped making Minetown what is it today and what it will be tomorrow.
