    Hi everyone,

    I will be spending the next three evenings working on server maintenance. I will need to work on server and plugin updates for the Lobby, Parkour, Skyblock, and Hardcore.

    You will be notified via alert when the maintenance will happen, sometime between 8pm and midnight Arizona time. You can find what time that is for you here: http://everytimezone.com/#2015-6-8,900,cn3

    Only one server at a time will be offline, which will hopefully minimize your disappointment that you can't play on your favorite server for a while.

    Thank you for your patience and understanding, and I apologize that I have to do this maintenance during peak playtime for many of you.

    Hehe, all the maintenance happens when I'm in bed, because of my timezone.
    Keep up the great work, c0w!

    Yes. I will try to minimize the downtime in the lobby.

    That's okay. As long as you can fix what you want. :)

    If possible, could moderators summon players to other worlds during the downtime?

    I appreciate that you do updates. One of the reasons I left my last server was because of a lack of needed maintenance.

Hmm, pls try to limit time on uhc, wait, wait, if they are adding stuff, and it takes three nights, aww yea this is gonna be awshome!

    @jems1304 Really, the server does not have maintenance as much as you imply. Typically maintenance occurs about once each month, which is not very often. The only other times might be if we have a serious issue.

    As for me, I would prefer that c0wg0d fixes security issues soon after they are discovered - so that we don't lose the server to a catastrophic failure or hack. And, I like that c0wg0d takes time to update plugins, so that we stay fairly current with new MC capabilities. But that's just my preference.

    I got about 90% of the maintenance required finished last night without much of an impact. I will finish the rest this evening. Tonight's maintenance will require me to shut down all servers, but it should only be for about 10 minutes or less. I'll let everyone know via an alert message before I kick everyone off the server. Thank you again for your patience and understanding.

    Thanks for making it quick c0w! So, what is new with the maintenance? Unless it is just security and plugins and random stuff.
