Ok, after much deliberation this is the new plan.....
The server STAYS. The Internet isn't getting rid of us just yet.
The old map is coming back! With all our kewl stuff!
I'm gonna bite my tongue and stick it out with Bukkit, so we don't lose stuff like
MagicCarpet and LWC chest protection. I hate it, but it seems to be ok with those 2 plugins, maybe teleport too.
EDIT: ditched Bukkit, rolled server back to 1.1 meaning we have hMod and the plugins again! Yay!
The server is going whitelisted....
This means that all admins, all mods, the VIPs and a few regulars are automatically welcome.
I also will be accepting new people for the whitelist on a continual basis. New people will need to apply here first, answer some basic questions, then be watched to see if they behave right and eventually if we all can agree they're not a problem, they get added to the list.
If you want an automatic guarantee of being considered for the Whitelist, no promises though, and no refunds possible.....you need to donate $5 via paypal. My paypal is [kewlmcserver AT gmail DOT com] and I'll setup a donations page today.
However, if you want a guaranteed place on the whitelist and not just to be considered, then you need to either buy a Silver, Gold or Platinum membership. The silver is $7 for 12 months, the gold is $15 for 12 months and the Platinum is $20 for 12 months. Each has different benefits. However, if you go down this road and insist on misbehaving you'll still be subject to kicks and maybe even bans. It'll just allow you to take the shortcut of avoiding the whole vetting procedure.
Also; for the mods and admins, feel free to suggest questions we could ask as part of vetting procedure.
Anyway, as always, any questions and suggestions welcome.
PS the donations system is for 3 reasons....
1) Capitalism FTW
2) As a sign of your commitment to server.
3)This all costs money to run.
PPS don't donate until you know you're NOT on the whitelist, well, unless you want to. But you don't need to.
