@weeman105: So in 1.9 they are adding Speedtree technology? Sweet.

I'm enjoying the hardcore food/dying thing, I think it is going to lead to the community being forced to be more cooperative / organized / tighter grouping in order to stay alive and keep resources safe. The game certainly feels much more "gamey" than before. Sure, losing a bunch of your gear to mobs while out exploring by yourself is frustrating, but maybe next time you'll take someone with you for protection.

I love the renewed energy in the server and the game, let's keep it up and build a better bastion than ever! No, not THAT bastion, although that would be cool too.

My "reliable" computer doesn't seem to be starting up beyond the "Starting Windows" screen, so I fear it may be out of commission for a little while. I will do my best to operate it on my laptop, it may be too laggy for me to be doing any consistent building, however. I am EST as well, so I should be around at some point this evening to say hello and see how the new content / fresh server map is coming along.

You have my vote for a hard reboot of the server , so long as the old file is available somewhere solid to download for single player / memento purposes. The server as it is right now is massive and an incredibly spread out and daunting place where you will rarely see another living soul unless you outright organize yourselves accordingly. Since we're trying to regain interest from the community, it might be best to have a fresh start point, where everyone can start from one home base and begin exploring anew.

I try to get on when I can. Just poking around and trying to figure out a good base of operations for when the update hits. Basically on weekdays, I am unavailable from now until about 8 hours from now.

Everyone sees what they want to see. You aren't immune to it either. No one enjoys having someone run into their house and shit all over the way they do things, no law has ever been changed that way.  If this were the White House, the secret service would have taken care of you by now. This is a forum, however. All we've got is words. And for the record, adding a saccharine farewell and a smily emoticon to a flame post about server take-over doesn't instantly make you look like a nice guy who is just trying to save the world. Just trying to help you out, you lovely gentleman. :)

@Tarsier: u mad, bro? I'm sorry that all of these rules and regulations don't gel with you, I can identify with the whole "free spirit, can't keep me down" rebel with a cause thing. In the end though, what makes a Minecraft experience is the people involved, and their level of organization. As one of the old farts who has been on and off this server since the onset, I can honestly say that the more "deregulated" times of the server saw a lot more griefing, vandalism, and just outright dickishness than in recent memory. When you run something on this scale, rules become necessary to keep the riffraff in check. Call that fascism if you like, but overall I think the server and the community are much stronger and closer to each other for it. If that is half-assed Minecrafting, well then I'm going to need slimmer chairs. 
 
Also, really, if you go through life assuming that the only two options are agreeing with you or trolling you...you're going to find yourself surrounded by imagined trolls, and i can't imagine that is a pleasant reality to be a part of. I would think that most actual trolls are birthed in such a vile cauldron.

Oh, BTW, I stumbled upon the wonderful little Hogwarts school near Bourbon, tried on the sorting hat, and smiled as it announced "Hufflepuff"! (I actually just slapped a sign with my name up on the Hufflepuff entry hall). Hufferpuffer and proud. We're right by the kitchen, bitches.

@weeman105: Playing a lot of XBox and doing a lot of work, growing up, and all that "responsibility" jazz. Also some Terraria. Et toi?

@FunExplosions: It's a pretty righteous time machine back to the early days of computing. I love that in the later seasons they play the "web" up like this horrible disease that is spreading and infecting the systems of the net one by one (with porn, no doubt).
