    Yeh, that’s a good idea, and it wouldn’t need to be much money, just some extra (maybe from non-VIP’s since VIP’s already donate) money to help keep it up for longer. :D

    Wowie! So much changes! I'm going to be honest now, eventhough I haven't been on the server for a while now, it's sad to see most of it go away. But, it's for the best! This server was (and still is!) a good childhood memory, I truly have enjoyed the times I had here. c0w, It's been a pleasure seeing you again, aswell as the other staff. I hope this server will become as good as it always has been with these new changes. I'm probably not going to return, or maybe I am, who knows! But, I just wanted to leave this message here and tell you how I felt since the last few years. This community is amazing, and so is the server, so let's hope that doesn't change! :D

    Thanks c0w! Maybe the server won't lag as much with BuildBattle and Dirtblock being removed :eek: Happy New Year / Very late Merry Christmas!

    Thanks for the update @c0wg0d - sounds like some good choices for long-term sustainability (of the server and your sanity! :cool:)

    You are to be thanked for all your efforts to make Sandlot the best Minecraft server ever! :)

    There may be bigger servers, but no server matches the family-friendly environment and consistently NICE player base that Sandlot has achieved.

    Please keep up the great work and know that even we quiet players really, REALLY appreciate your efforts.

    Sorry if I am a little late reading this, but if you ever want to visit Hogwarts, you can by going through the water portal labeled "adventure".

    Just informing you in case you didn't know :)

    @c0wg0d , I am assuming that Skyblocl will restart with the eventual change to 1.13 (or .14).

    c0wg0d did say, in the thread below, that he thinks Skyblock will reset.

    https://www.sandlotminecraft.com/th...ated-to-1-13-should-we-reset-the-world.33290/

    Because new blocks and items are attained through challenges in Skyblock, it is a little different than the other survival servers. Skyblock could reset, or it could continue with new challenges to give 1.13 items until c0wg0d has time to reset it. Players who want to start anew could do that sooner by restarting their islands. :O

    What minimally needs to happen is that we must create new challenges that players can complete in order to get the 1.13 items. Or, maybe we could acquire some ideas from other Skyblock servers? (Future plug-in updates might permit new biomes to exist on islands, but that is up to the developers.)

    Here is a thread where players can post their ideas for challenges to give 1.13 items.

    I have not played Sandlot for about a year, but I am so happy and glad that you are allowing others who are new to the server to get such wonderful memories. I myself remember the first day I joined, half a decade ago. How I have matured, how the server has matured, etc. This server will forever hold a place in my heart, though I may not be the most active in it anymore. I think that you are doing a great job @c0wg0d and that these changes will bring everyone closer together, as a community.

    Uggghhh! Yess, I totally miss hg. Honestly part of the reason I’m not online much anymore is because hg is often empty, I used to be super obsessed with it. If people do start to play it more, I’ll definitelt try to be there.

    Build Battle, Dirtblock, and HungerGames 2 have now been taken offline. I will make the Dirtblock map available for download, but it will take me some time to prepare it. Thank you for being patient.

    Will the labels soon be taken off tab? I see that they are still present. I just don't want any new players being confused about the extra labels there.

    (Also, will the renamed survival worlds show new names in tab?)

    Just saying c0wg0d this might ubset some people and that might make them leave, its just a possibility just consider it

    I would think that possibility has already been considered and that the benefits have outweighed the risks. His initial announcement already indicated that the decision to do what was done was difficult but necessary. Also keep in mind that just because they are gone now doesn't mean they won't be back in the future.
