This is just a short but somewhat informative of all the current ongoing tasks/updates/things you can expect in the upcoming months, weeks or even days! There are a couple of projects that we have been working on over the past little while for now we will keeping them a secret until further notice where we will then put out a much more informational post on each individual project. This post will for the most part will be based around the little projects that the staff team and administration team have been working on/will continue to work on.
The first major change is to do with store support, now this is no disrespect towards EpicSquirrel who is currently our store support, he’s doing everything in his power to help those with a rank issue. However, this change is more directed towards a fix/other solution for store credits as some have been sitting there for a while. We will also be remove the “Login daily for up to 75% off coupon” message that I’m sure most of you are familiar and presented with upon logging into the server. Our reason for removing this is because this method died out a long time ago and is no longer something we offer on our network. We will hopefully be trying to think of another method to offer players daily rewards for visiting our server, sort of like a “Carl the Creeper” type but modified to better fit our network.
The second major change is to do with our staff team, as I’m sure a couple of you have probably seen some difference by now this will just be further explaining it and informing those who were unaware. To begin you’ll notice that myself and @SkellyX are now Owners, this is due to the fact that Matty2k999 has since stepped down from his previous Owner position and Caleb has removed his tags but still does run the server. Secondly @CraftyDanMC is no longer a senior moderator is now an Administrator/Warden, we’ve also added a ‘Jr Admin’ role which is a role between Senior Moderator and Network Admin that is solely frontend based. In addition, Meaphf is no longer a Moderator but now a Senior Moderator, as well as Warden on OP-Prison. We’re really excited with these changes and believe it can only strengthen our staff team as we move forward.
We’ve since added a social media team! This is something that’s still new to our network and doesn’t have much done as of yet but it is currently work in progress. We have an account on Twitter, Snapchat and Instagram. Be sure to follow us for early sneak peeks and any exciting new information that is going to be coming to our network soon! Twitter - MineCartMC Snapchat - MinecartNetwork Instagram - MinecartMC
To start, update logs will now be put out every other Sunday as when done every Sunday they often become boring and there’s not as much to update the community on as a lot of the fixes are small and aren’t always kept note of.
So, as you all know OP-Prison has just been launched and we are looking for some feedback on what you guys think. We want to know what you like/dislike and what you think could be improved. Lac and myself have noticed that there are a few issues we'd like to address, but that would mean once again - for the final time - resetting everything. We know this would be a huge inconvenience to some, but our priority is to ensure you get the best playing experience we can offer. If you guys are willing, we'd like to treat this as a public beta and iron out some creases, so to speak, fix a few things up and perhaps make a few changes.
With that said, if you are all happy with the current setup then we will reconsider this, however, we get the feeling that some of you aren't 100% happy with how things are right now. Nothing is set in stone at this point so please leave your feedback on how you think things are currently, whether you'd like to see any changes and whether or not you'd be up for a final reset.
Our aim is not to inconvenience you, but to make the majority happy in the long run. We want to hear your thoughts on this, whether it be positive or constructive criticism - all feedback is welcome.
I know I had a post up to this but that was honestly a mistake on my part, the server was up but there were actually many issues that we had to resolve before we could release the server back to the public but now all those issues have since been fixed and we can now finally open up the server again for good.
There are a few points however:
Due to the unexpected crash we had to completely rollback op-prison to a time before release so essentially the release hasn't happened yet but is now open to the public.
We will also be awarding compensation to users shortly after we get everything finalized and running smoothly.
If anyone experiences any issues further please feel free to create a thread or report it to a member of the administration team so we can fix it properly.
We do once again apologize for this very long and unexpected frusturating downtime however all is fixed now and hopefully more issues like that won't happen in the future.
