1. Outdated Client: There was a massive update to the server as of today, and that is causing issues as Notch also effectivly disabled a lot of the user mods people used to keep servers sane.
2. Missing stuff: The backup system works as best as can be expected given the terrible lack of QA some parts of minecraft have gotten. There are still very well known server sync and save, revert, issues on the server software and I can not control them as this is bugs in Notches code. The issue is not that things are not saved - they are saved - its that parts of the world will randomly revert themselves without reason and since you like to build in the sky, that means things just vanish as they are replaced with air blocks. Please see http://www.minecraftwiki.net/wiki/Known_bugs
It should be noted that a white list is now in effect due to the extra serve lag created by the updates. If you want to be on the white list, apply below. If you have been a member of the server in good standing and I recognized your name, you are probably already on the white list. If your not on the white list and should be, I probably made a mistake while copying the coins balance sheet over to the white list manually (I had to reformat it and remove people that are on the ban list, as well as people I didnt recognize) so just post here and ask to be added.
I will also be going around and looking for signs people placed to claim homes; If your not on the white list but have a sign/home all you need to do is ask to be added.

People with less then 10 constructive posts on the forum are generaly not even being considered at this time due to the recent updates and how they are affecting the server, but im woilling to make exceptions if you are mature. And somebody who is making their first post to request to be white listed doesn't have a chance, since for all I know it could be a briefing alt.
I know I don't have many posts but I just bought the game. I've been messing around with classic mode and have played quite a bit at a friends recently. I bought the game for my birthday and decided to check out the multiplayer since youtube has really made it look like a lot of fun.
I love building and would love to help out. I also really like mining and exploring and finding cave systems.
Banned sxcSoul today after once again having to remind him that expect my servers members to give and get respect from each other. Swastikas being built everywhere, grief seeds casually being given out to noobs in the form of lava buckets, he was acting homophobic, calling people names, etc. He had a lot of chances.
So I log in and I am greeted by this:
2010-11-12 22:42:09 [INFO] <sxcSoul> Kamikazi is a faggot.
2010-11-12 22:42:09 [INFO] <sxcSoul> :smile.gif:
2010-11-12 22:42:12 [INFO] <feverdream> whats going on?
2010-11-12 22:42:16 [INFO] <sxcSoul> Just thought I'd tell you.
2010-11-12 22:42:31 [INFO] <feverdream> soul dont care how gay he is we respect people on this server
2010-11-12 22:42:54 [INFO] <feverdream> so what is this about kazi being gay anyway?
2010-11-12 22:43:09 [INFO] <sxcSoul> he dug trying to get to a person's chest 5 times
2010-11-12 22:43:10 [INFO] <sxcSoul> in a row
2010-11-12 22:43:15 [INFO] <feverdream> are you just trying to do the "im secretly gay myself but lets use it as an insult" thing?
He didn't take the hint. I found signs everywhere making rude remarks about people, swastikas everywhere (badly done, and backwards at first ) and basically was a low key griefer.
2010-11-12 22:51:18 [INFO] <Tactical_Zombie> That's like inviting Griefers to destroy our stuff
2010-11-12 23:00:01 [INFO] <feverdream> Soul I have some bad news for you
2010-11-12 23:00:09 [INFO] <feverdream> you want the good or the bad first
2010-11-12 23:00:11 [INFO] <feverdream> ?
2010-11-12 23:00:13 [INFO] <sxcSoul> bad.
2010-11-12 23:00:25 [INFO] <feverdream> bad news is I killed your cobblestone generator
2010-11-12 23:00:49 [INFO] <feverdream> the good news is, I saved a bunch of money by switching to gieco.. and your banned.
2010-11-12 23:00:56 [INFO] Banning sxcSoul
Now looking for somebody to replace him. If you posted before and are still interested, speak up.
Reason: I would like to join a fun server with mature folks and just build some cool stuff. I've built many houses and carved elaborate rooms inside underground cities before. I'm looking to play on a server without some of the previous hassles I have had to deal with (griefers, random server resets that remove everyones inventory and storage in chests, etc).
I am willing to donate if the quality of the server/community/admin is worth it :smile.gif:
