    Maintenance will begin at approximately 9pm Arizona time.

    To find the time in your timezone, see here: http://everytimezone.com/#2016-7-18,960,cn3

    All servers except the lobby will be unavailable for an indeterminate amount of time. We are going to be testing a new chat system (which some of you may remember from before). As many of you probably recall, a long time ago we were having major headaches with a "Proxy Kick" error. This error was caused by the new chat plugin. Now that some time has passed and that plugin has had multiple updates, and we are on 1.8+ across all servers, and we support name changes, I am hoping that those Proxy Kick errors will no longer happen. The only way I can test this is to take all servers offline, have everyone chat spam (the only time where you aren't breaking the rule!) in the lobby and see what happens. If nobody gets kicked, I will bring other servers on one by one and we will test doing cross-server private messages. Eventually I will bring all servers online and we'll see how that goes. If we don't see any errors for an hour or two, then I'd say we're pretty safe. If we do still get Proxy Kicks, then it's back to the drawing board!

    Thanks for your patience and understanding.

    I pray, Rose, that you never find out. ;)

    Proxy Kicks were where you would get kicked from the Sandlot with some error like "[Proxy] Lost connection to the server.". It could happen 5 times in 2 minutes or it could go for half a day without a single issue. It was very frustrating. :/

    I went to the second link and it said it was 9pm MST and 12am EDT. Isn't it MDT?

    Arizona does not observe daylight savings time. We don't ever switch our clocks here, which is why I have to look up timezones every single time I make a post like this. I wish the rest of America would get with the program and realize how ridiculous daylight savings time is...

    I don't really like the spring daylight savings time because I "lose" an hour :(. I love the fall one because I "Gain" an hour :).

    Thanks c0w. You work endlessly and put so much effort in for a new version of the server every time maintenance is completed. We love you, you're such a great administrator! :)
