Ok guys, I have a lot to talk about. To sum it up, we have had some huge problems, but a lot of good is going to come out of it.
A combination of serious problems with Avante hosting have occured. First, their site went down right as we needed to renew, effectively putting the server in "suspension mode" until we could pay our fees to renew.
We had no choice but to wait this part out. After a couple days, the website was back up, and we were able to pay again. Then, paradox had some problems with his paypal account, and had to wait a couple days to sort it out.
After he got his paypal straightened out, he went back to renew the server and we found that it had been taken out of "suspension mode" and put into "deleted mode." Basically, without telling us, Avante hosting decided to delete our files permanently. Paradox tried to consult with Avante, but apparently after only a few days they delete your server files with no way to recover. We were obviously very frustrated because of this.
Unfortunately, that's it. The server we had is gone.
That's the end of the bad stuff.
For a long time now paradox and I have wanted to create a new, never before seen, unique server with it's own customized plugins. Eventually, we were planning on getting our own box (which usually costs around $300) to allow us to be able to pull something like this off.
After searching for a new host, paradox came across a hosting service that blew us away. This server host comes with its own box, at an affordable cost.
We have decided to use this hosting service. We will be able to use it in about 2 weeks.
So after all of this, paradox and I sat down and came up with a unique server idea. It is extremely complex, and will take over factions, mcmmo, iconomy and more.
We are estimating about a month of solid work for this idea to actually be put into a server that can actually be released to public, and many weeks more of updating to fine tune and improve it.
Does this mean in the month or so we are offline with our main server you will be left out?
We will be updating our progress on a normal basis, so you will always have a good idea where we are at during the process. Some people will even be able to help with the new server if they want to. I will be creating a brand new thread with all of the information on what we are trying to accomplish, where we are at in the process, and how to help if you would like to.
We will have a separate server we will be building the new spawn town on. I will be creating a whitelist application on the new thread, and if you are accepted, you will become an official builder, and will be able to help with on specific section(s) of the town.
I will be the builder in charge of the town, and paradox will be in charge of creating the custom plugins we will need to run the server.
We sincerely apologize to each and every person who has played on the server. We could have never imagined a situation like this arising. We hope you will stick with us during the creation of a new server.
Both paradox and I are very excited for this new server, and we hope you will be as well.
Of course, nothing will be carried over onto this new server except for possibly the donater titles.
So say goodbye to MaturePvP, and say hello to the new server!
Thank you all for the wonderful experience you brought to maturecraft, we hope you will stick with us through these hard times!
As soon as I am done the new thread that will illustrate what we are planning on doing, I will post the link here.
