WAITTTTT WHATT! WHAT'S HAPPENING?! Read everything carefully below before getting confused! So you've all posted your comments, ideas, decisions on my previous announcement and I thought it's time now I explained what we currently have in mind! We have decided that we shall rebuild Broncin City with a new map new plugins and basically release it as a new server once again! To give us the fresh feel and enjoyment we once had before when the server was initial released! Now I'm sure you all have lots of questions and I shall try my best to cover them in below, but if I don't answer something you can feel free to ask me or any other the other Admins working closely with me! Questions and Answers... When will the server reopen? I haven't got a defined time in my head but I originally said around a months time. So I'm now thinking we make it release on Broncins anniversary! What all is changing? Currently we are working on Broncin City. The Hub and Creative servers have not been affected and we haven't decided if these need to be changed or upgraded in anyway as yet as the City is our current main focus. I had Donor will I keep this? In short, yes. This will be a long manual process for us to provide you back with Donor immediately when the server reopens. We plan on creating a Google forum for you to fill in and this way we can easily keep track of who needs what. You will receive Emerald Donor, spawners and any other permanent items back. This forum will be based on a first in first out system, so when the time comes don't pester us, we will get to you but as you can imagine this will be a large backlog. I donated for non permanent items will these return? No, under normal circumstances. Unless you received less than 50% of your time with your donor perk you will not have this returned to you. I donated for in-game money will I get this back? Currently we are undecided on this. I myself personally think no as straight away this is giving people an unfair advantage on the reopening of the server. Wait so I was Major Prestige 8 times, with sharp 35 sword and $453 billion, am I losing all this? Yes, unfortunately that's the way it's going to be. We want to wipe the slate clean and start again. Argue all you wish, you aren't getting your sharp 239 sword back that an Admin gave you for winning back in the year dot, haha. Will the map change? Yes, the map has mostly been rebuilt. We are making a few final changes to the map but mostly it has been complete. Can I help build? Pleassssseeeeee! This isn't my area, so speak to @Shiz or @Rocken1 directly. I'm assuming no, so don't pester them. Can I help with plugins or setting stuff up? Help with this is always welcome. I've a lot to do and not massive amounts of time to do it. I will appreciate as much help as possible but I don't want everyone and their fish helping me because it just becomes too hard for me to control who is doing what, then people bicker and it just frustrates me. That aside, if you do have A LOT of knowledge with plugins, how they work or how to configure different things please feel free to let me know and I will be happy to let you help. NOTE: This does not mean you will become Admin/Dev/Helper/EpicCoolGuy or whatever once the server is opened. I will reward you if I feel you put in effort but you won't receive any special treatment. I was staff before, will I get my staff rank back? At release no. So don't ask. Everyone will be asked to apply for their roll again and based on the amount of players we have we will take on new staff again. This is to ensure we don't open a server with 95% staff and 5% players. Me, my brother, my friend, my neighbour or cat was banned in the past, can we be unbanned? Yes, everyone is being given a second change no matter what you were banned for. Yes, that's right. Everyone. But noooooo my town! Is it gone? Yes, it will be gone. That's just how it is. I might once I have this new server up and running release the old map as a legacy server but only to fly around and see old stuff, it won't be fully functional as before. I see this as a way to go back, look at old buildings, compare stuff, show people your old towns etc. But as I say this isn't my priority right now, so it won't be there when the server reopens. The server is online but I'm not whitelisted? Currently the server is whitelisted for us to develop it. Don't ask to be whitelisted, it won't happen. Simple as that. I may however if I get a chance open the Hub and Creative servers to allow players to come online, just note though if I do this you may experience some random restarts. I don't agree with something that's changing, who can I complain to? Someone who cares.. Nah, only joking. Feel free to reply here and rant about something you don't like. I will take onboard what you have to say and if I feel fit I will make changes, but don't count on it unless you have a really valid point. I'm doing my best to please everyone remember. And Finally...... Hopefully the above answers most if not all that you need to know! As I have said, feel free to ask questions below and I'll do my best to answer them. Oh and finally please be patient with us, there are are more of yous than there are us Admins and it's difficult for us to answer everyone at once so don't get mad if it takes us more than 3 seconds to get back to you on something! Thanks, Your scrubby Owner nub Stu.
