    Dear Players,

    Maintenance finished

    To improve the network of our server, we have decided to reinstall all servers, this is done.
    We only have to transfer the current online servers to those other servers, so you might experience some downtime!

    Update 1: Still transfering data, takes longer than expected. Probably will be online tomorrow.
    Update 2: It's enough for today, all servers are transfered, the only thing that has to be done is to reinstall a decent ban plugin, fix some internal configurations and last check if votifier is still working.
    Update 3: Started again, about an hour ago, new ban system is almost done, checking up final things.
    Update 4: Ban system has been updated and working, now working on some internal configurations.
    Update 5: Everything is back online again.

    Best Regards,
    Michel

    That well put, nicely said. But can you also tell us what the problem was that we were suffering from ? And what will be better now compared to how it was ?

    The servers after the update were 3 weeks old. If there would have been some planned maintenance, like you make this sound, you would have given a heads up at least. But this is completely unexpected. At least the factions server went down last night, or the proxy did, i could not tell from the login message i received after is was thrown off. No warning, nothing, just poof off.

    So this is not regular maintenance. Something happened that you need to fix. Shop also hasn't been available in factions for a couple of days, nor have crates for players keys. Highly unusual for brand new server installations. People that had left to other servers were coming back to see what it was like again. And their off right away, because HC does not have their affairs in order. Again.

    Maybe time to pick your staff up, have a pizza night, sit back and refocus ?

    For the players there was nothing to notice, however for me, and some other staff members who maintain the servers, had to work with a really old version of Multicraft with some bugs in it, this needed to be fixed. I could reinstall the current server, or just buy new servers to install these and make a better, and probably a safer environment, since all installed programs are now up to date.

    Since that the server was put online rather rapidly, I had no time to just install a few more servers, this week I had some time, and decided to do it. Also as you say, there is a aspect of players leaving, we have to cope with that, and with 7 servers, with in total about 320GB of ram, isn't that quite easy. So yes, we have less servers, which in total are cheaper, but have the same quality as before the update. Survival, Creative, Factions and Skyblock already were on the same servers as now all servers are.

    No, just transferring data between servers.

    I've seen the bans got a reset, but PLEASE don't reset again the server it is cool now. I'm enjoying KitPvP and the other sub-servers since you updated it to 1.10.

    I lost my complete inventory......... way to go !!!
    Crates and shop are not back in factions either.

    I read something about 'improve' ?

    Sorry, but i'm getting sarcastic. Hours of xp grinding and enchanting down the drain. Hurray.

    Found the reason for this, had the wrong worldname in multicraft, so it created a new world with a empty set of enderchest and stuff.
    There are two things to do, just keep this one, and start over again, if you had a playervault there is nothing wrong.
    The other thing we can do is to import the old data, but can't guarantee it will work, it will probably work.

    What do you guys want?

    Try it, please if it dont work umm idk some good compensation, since for the most normal op we keep it in ender chest, but it is more preferable to operate the old data I would like to see the opinion of others hollandcrafter

    The two things are nice, first thing you said "just keep this one, and start over again." I think it would be a good thing for the new players, to play FAIR to old player, START FRESH and MAKE OP THINGS AGAIN because if the old players have an OP Things already then, it wouldn't be fair to the new players. Second thing you said "to import the old data, but can't guarantee it will work" I think it will be a good thing to players to continue their works to become the best FACTION here in HC, but as you said "can't guarantee it will work" I think that does mean NO ONE will know if it will work as before. :)
