    Beginning at approximately 10pm Arizona time and extending until about 2am the following morning, all servers will be unavailable while updates are performed.

    To find the time in your timezone, see here: http://everytimezone.com/#2015-3-30,-420,cn3

    The entire server will be unavailable. The maintenance will consist of security updates for the underlying OS and a new permissions system for all servers. This is a substantial update and there are likely to be residual permissions problems after the updates are completed. Please bear with us as these are worked out.

    Thanks for your patience and understanding.

    I've noticed that the pace of updates has increased significantly. Is this making up for cheracc's prior busyness, or is there some other cause?

    It's a combination of cheracc being too busy in the past to do common maintenance, Spigot updating to 1.8 recently, Mojang switching from usernames to UUIDs, and me being a zealous new admin. :)

    i can has questions?
    Is this 1.8 spigot update or 1.8.3?
    Besides the Permissions, what else may be upgraded (Elder Guardians, Wet Sponges, gates)?
    Is there anything we should look for as far as permissions?

    Nope, this is another one of those "boring" things for you guys, but something that will (hopefully) make my life a lot easier and make weird permission bugs come to an end. There won't be any other changes.

    c0w how do you update the server does cheracc give you access to the actually server computer or can you do it all from inside the server?

    Yes, there is no way I could do all this from inside the game. :)

    Unfortunately 00JQ has figured out how to do it from inside the game though.

    Thanks c0wwy ^^! I dont really mind that there wont be many changes because honestly I like the sandlot the way it is now. But then again yes you do need things to be ALOT easier on you according to your sleeping lack of it and the fact that c0ws need alot of sleep and gods need like.. ten times more than that xd

    I thought g0ds don't need sleep? So balance that with being a c0w and he should be getting just enough. ;) More than me anyways.

    Well after a super awesome fun 6 and a half hour maintenance spree, I am done for the evening (or day, however you want to say it...).

    As I said before, I completely overhauled the permissions system. I can almost guarantee that some things will be broken. I already know that VIP is not completely working right for everyone, and the Jobs ranks don't show on easy, and I will fix those later today. There will probably be many players complaining. If you are a responsible forums poster, I would love it if you could help the younger players by posting in the bug forums any issues that they (or you) are having.

    I will be going to sleep now, and I will be around off and on for a good portion of tomorrow to fix issues that arise. Please bear with me as we make it through this. In the end, our permissions should be much smoother and streamlined, and this was the last big push we needed as far as "boring" backend admin type stuff, so now we can start doing more fun things! But not for a while, I need a break! :)
