As stated recently, we are planning on starting a new community; this is specifically targeted at those who enjoy gaming, computing, coding, graphics etc, things of that nature, along with brand new features. We want to begin a community that contains a wide variety of topics that are aimed at a much wider demographic as opposed to a single game like Minecraft.
We are very close to being ready to go; we have a new domain, new forums, new theme and a new Discord. We will be launching the Discord prior to the forums just so you guys can settle in and ask any questions while we make a few more tweaks to the new forums.
At present we are keeping our new name quiet, just while we finish up, but as soon as everything is ready to go, we will announce on the new Discord when the forums go live. Oh, and you're probably wondering; why a new Discord? Well the current one holds several members who are no longer active and we want to give people the choice to join our new community, and not make up numbers by using people who aren't even active on Minecart anymore.
We're very excited for this new change. We hope to see you there.
We know it’s been a rather wild past 24 hours with the closing of the network and just 48 hours prior to that we were reassuring everyone that the revamp was still in fact taking place. The closing of this network came as a shock to all of us including myself, Skelly and even Caleb. We didn’t plan for this to happen but we completely understand why it did. With that being said, even if the server isn’t down we’d still like to do our best to keep the community together. We’ve discussed a plan amongst the administration team that we think will work out best for being able to keep this community alive and well and possibly even bringing in some new faces.
We plan to still keep the forums up and running for a bit but we want to steer away from minecraft and broaden our horizons. With that being said Minecraft will still be apart of this new project. We have plans to turn the forums and discord into a gaming community but will have more features than just games. We’ll have a place for tech discussions, graphics, anime, media, gaming and more. We believe that this idea will allow us to still keep the community around and hopefully still interactive as well as being able to branch out into different things instead of just the same old boring things. We plan to bring a lot of new features as well keep many of the old and good ones that have been with us since the start.
This process shouldn’t take us too long to make and we plan on having it done before Christmas time. We want to get everything planned out perfectly before we begin on any progress. Once we begin progress we will have the forums shutdown until we’re ready to release, we’ll open up the new discord much sooner so you’ll still have that to be able to interact with one another.
We do have plans to maybe one day in the future re-open a minecraft server but will most likely just have it as a SMP and not multiple different game modes, if it takes off and people enjoy it and play it enough we might branch out from there. We have a ton of ideas but at present, we want to get this new idea off the ground and see where it takes us.
We hope you’re all excited for this idea and hope that it’s something you’ll enjoy when it comes out. We appreciate all the patience throughout everything you’ve had to endure this past couple of months and we apologize for the network shutting down so suddenly. Hope to see many of you on this new network.
Hello everyone. I don't even know where to start really, but I will say this community has been something I've cared for quite some time now and I couldn't of been happier with how everything went in our past. Even though we've arrived at this point we had quite the journey with a huge community and I don't think it could've been better (except for some toxicity ). Sadly we're deciding to halt all revamp work and put down the server due to lack of workers and funds. We tried to continue efforts on the revamp, but everyone is growing up and his a real life to attend to and a future to build.
With all of that said I've discussed with @Deprive and @SkellyX and we feel at this point the server is at it's last life. I've moved on to other projects in my life that I would like to focus on primarily. My first idea was to hand it over to someone who cared about it, but the risks to run the project out of pocket is too high. I'd love to keep the community talking at least for the time being so I will continue to keep our website up and running ad free for a couple more months.
Personally I've been pretty inactive on the community scene so I guess this is different than it would've been a year ago. Although I'm truly sad to say goodbye I will say it's been a great honor to run the community for you to enjoy over the previous years. I don't know who I'd be without the community, but I truly thank this community for being here it was the coolest experience ever building this server back in the day.
Everything has been amazing guys, and it sucks this is where it ends although it's surely been a ride and I thank you all for that so much. Others will be posting their goodbyes in the comment.
