I just finished the crackdown on spammers/scammers on the forums.
297 out of the 455 accounts have been deleted since all of those were spammers.
An ingame code is required again when registering (use /forum while in the lobby)
Spammers and scammers warning
As some may know, our website has been flooded with scammers recently. We always had this issue but it's currently getting out of control.
In order to stop and prevent those spammers and scammers we re-enabled the manual approval by staff during registration, though we don't like to do so it will help to prevent these spammers.
We will also do a crackdown on spam accounts and their IP addresses, this means that these accounts will be deleted.
Manual approval will be temporary until we get an ingame code to use during registration. This won't make very long.
Be sure not to click the links in posts posted by spammers. You can recognise them if they don't have an avatar.
I've also been working on improving the website, I still am and there will be a lot of fixes, tweaks and changes.
My main goal this time is to improve the theme and make it a lot more appealing.
I'm also trying l get the website to work faster and...
So you guys probably noticed that the server is currently down..
This is due to me not being able to work on the server, im busy with school and dont have the time for EMT right now.. Sadly the big update didnt go as planned since 2 mayor plugins (essentials and groupmanager) decided not to work anymore.. because of that non of all the plugins wanted to work.
I will be able to work on the server starting next week, this is one of my last weeks at school after wich i will have weeks and weeks of spare time to work on the server!
As you all know we are working on updating the servers to 1.9! Well now, today we will start to make the changes to the servers, starting with EMT Green. Therefore some servers may be down until the big release which is coming soon!
As many of you have probably noticed I have not been very active at all in the few months recently, this is because i'm at my final 3 months at school then I officially leave school. So to make up for this I have been focused mainly on my school work for all my courses. I apologise once again for me not being active and I swear I will return to the server as soon as every last exam is done.
So, as many of you may know, Minecraft was just updated to version 1.9. With this causes some issues in connecting to servers as some of you may have learned. As of now, I believe we are staying on 1.8 until we can guarantee compatibility with our plugins. I would expect an update on this within the next week on whether or not we will be upgrading after further research.
