The server is down. I thought maybe it was an issue on our end (corrupt world/missing file/etc) so i was going to get into our servers filesystem to do some moving around of files to test some of those possibilities. I am unable to connect to the file system what so ever. For those of you how don't know, That basically in a nutshell means that the problem is NOT on our end. The machine that we buy the server from (the server host company) is down. Meaning It is more than likely (95%) that we are not the only ones from the same server hosting company that is experiencing the same issue.
Due to the fact that it is not on our end, I have no idea, nor way of telling when the problem will be fixed. HOPEFULLY it will be fixed very promptly. I wasn't going to announce this until later, but given this i figure it might be a good idea. Me and juke are planning to move all of our server files to a VPS (virtual private server) instead of using a server hosting service like we are now. This would only for you guys mean a change of ip address for connecting to the server. Assumeing that no files from our server are now corrupt do to my server hosting company going down when we move the world and all data/progress will go with us. As far as server wide this move would mean twice the amount of server ram. We run at 3.5gb server ram ATM and with the move it will increase to a full 7gb. It will also mean better file access/management for myself, a better faster connection (less lag do to latency), and more general server control. Meaning when we move our server company will no longer be able to go down and effect us because we will be our OWN server host.
This move was scheduled to occur sometime between this coming Wednesday (6/4/14) and the following tuesday (6/11/14). Due to the apparent issues with our hosting company I'm going to work extra extra hard to make sure this move occurs at the beginning (same/next day) of this time table.
Also, Hopefully shortly after the move we'll be able to get our own website that will be used for the purpose i'm posting right now. To keep you all in the loop of server-side stuff.
We are EXTREMELY sorry for this major inconvenience. We hope you all understand we enjoy playing as much as you do and if we had any control of this we would be on it like johnny on the spot.

w0lf27 i should not accept you because the minimum age is 16. However, you are close and you came straight forward and told me you are just slightly under the minimum age limit for the server. That honesty and the fact im a firm believer in giving people chances when i have no reason not to. You're accepted. However know that if anything happens you are starting on thin ice due to the fact your under the minimum age, and i made an exception for you. Please don't make me regret that.
