    So as I'm sure all of you are aware, the server has been offline for some number of weeks now. There are a few reasons behind this which I don't intend to go into but basically the amount of issues with different things including space and plugins became too much to manage.

    This post isn't a final farewell by any means, so don't start to panic, just yet.

    The server currently has 30 days remaining of up-time before we have to renew it again and quite frankly its not making enough money anymore to keep it running for much longer than another 4-5 months.

    I am giving you all the opportunity as the community to decide what happens next. I don't want any silly responses or stupid suggestions. I want serious answers as this is your community, do what you would like with it.
    Do you want someone specific to manage the server? - Let me know.
    Do you want Dean and I to run the server? - Let me know.
    Do you have a complete unique idea that you want us to try? - Let me know.

    It's as simple as that guys and girls! The future is in your hands!

    Much Love,
    That Nub Stu.

    I suggest that we start from scratch... but also have a legacy server is possible because everyone worked real hard to create everything they’ve done. And keep creative as well. As for managing I want to thank you dean and stu for advancing this server and the great time I’ve had here at broncin, unfortunately though the management staff is a lil inactive. So I mean if stu and dean plan to become more active and stick to it I suggest you guys continue to run it but if not I think it might be time to pass the torch to shiz after Christmas or maybe tin. And you guys could still have an honorary rank or something special seen as you guys have done so much.

    sad to see this, but i'm sure we all appreciate the transparency. i agree with uk on this one but as long as broncin is still alive i don't care what happens.

    Thank you both for your input so quickly, I like the idea of starting from scratch but also having a legacy server. I would be more than happy to have Shiz or Tin managing the server. They both work extremely hard and have done so much for the server and can't thank them enough for the time and effort they have both put in over the years.

    If I was to give my personal opinion on what I would like to happen would be as follows;

    - Shiz and/or Tin manage the server
    - Start over, fresh map, fresh plugins etc
    - Legacy server
    - Creative server
    - Myself and Dean will play a large part in still overseeing everything and become more involved again but will play a more background role, allowing the manager(s) to take responsibility on what happens etc

    I think this would be the best idea, with the exclusion of a legacy server. The Broncin community isn't big by any means, and splitting the players we have into two servers isn't a great idea imo. Starting over fresh with up to date plugins and a new map seems to be the way to go. Since you and Dean (and from what I know Shiz) are all busy with irl duties, it would probably be best to hand Tin the reins with you guys advising and providing input. If Shiz eventually has free time he could manage the server with Tin, or perhaps Ivan or Rocken could step up to co-manage the server as I know they are both very capable of doing so. Bottom line is you and Dean have created an awesome server and have put a ton of work in it and I know all of us players appreciate it, but I think its best for you guys to take a step back and let the others who have more time to work on it rebuild the server.

    Either way this thing goes, you two have given a lot of people a lot of fun times on MC, myself very much included. You guys have brought many players together and are responsible for a lot of friendships. You are the bomb for doing that. Whatever happens happens, just know that we appreciate what you guys have done.

    I like the idea of starting from scratch and having a legacy server but i also think we should have a complete fresh start new Staff new admins new everything i know that may seem radical but i think it may help

    EDIT:
    I think the legacy server should exist but you cant do anything on it so basically a museum of towns that kind of thing as i don't think we should split the community

    I believe starting from scratch will be a great idea! Start something new maybe. You could also add something like Slime Fun for mods in vanilla minecraft.

    I'm also worried on the fact that the server only has enough money to run for another 4 - 5 months, so this is a big problem for us, and we need to get this resolved fast.

    i would like to see the map reset @Stuartie @DeanUK
    but the donors would still have their items which they purchased.

    I agree Fresh start + legacy server. So does that mean donor ranks get reset as well? Also I think if the new donor area would be too op we could gather a list of donors now and give them donor rank again in the new server once they reach a certain rank to avoid ranking too too fast. Also, I think a reset for staff is a good idea, but I would still like to see Tin, Shiz, Stu, and Dean still be in charge and involved in the server :). Lastly, @Stuartie said we don't have enough money to cover server expenses past 4-5 months. How are we going to deal with that if the server is restarted? Remember guys: "With great power comes great responsibility."

    Donors obviously must keep their rank and I love the idea of starting from scratch and new managers and stuffs

    I like the idea of haveing legacy as a museum but I don’t want to never be able to finish what I’ve started ands see how other towns grow. As for people saying new staff, well I think we should have a mix of current staff because they have experience with the server but also add some new ones for sure just to have some fresh ideas and what not in the mix. And also have the legacy chat and new towny chat thing linked like creative so we aren’t ruining the community.

    The server needs a fresh start. Everyone needs a fresh start. Society is falling apart and needs to rebuild our society again by working together.

    The server can attract new players by adding fun features.

    All players should be given a 2nd chance and things should be fair

    I say blank slate with new economy but keep ranks and spawners ranking up to double prestige would I think deter some members from returning

    I think the best option for Broncin would be a fresh start. For managment, I think Tin, Shiz and either Stu or Dean should continue managing the server. In my opinion, the community is too small for a legacy server.

    In my eyes, this discussion should not be about towns anymore, it should be about the whole server as thats what matters, not towns.

    I think you should make the old city map downloadable for the public and then let us pack some stuff up and restart when sufficient funds, staff and time are available.

    Edit:
    The reasons for making the world public instead of legacy:
    -Cheaper
    - No divide of community

    Fresh restart, unban all previously banned people so they can re-banned when they do something stupid again

    That’s new and it’s a great idea, I think that combined with a map download or something with the old server would be good

    Agreed, either that or have a legacy server we can play on

    Dear Noob and Stu (Noob is Dean)
    You have both given me a heck of a time on broncin even though I have only spoken to you both once or twice it was a cool time.
    I want legacy server and a new start. I don't want to see you two leave but Dean hasn't been that active. Stu has been sorta been around but either way. Tin used to be on 24/7. If there is any way I could POSSIBLY help. (Dunno bout funds but I can try as hard as possible) please DM me on discord
    One more thing. Please don't let me or the community down (I doubt you will) but Broncin has been a big chunk of my life. And a big chunk of my wallet (lel)
    But anyway. I would be VERY sad if this is the end


    kart is a noob and I wanted to beat him to sheriff ;3
    itll still happen kart dont forget it!!!
