Hi Nerdcrafteria!

We're about two and a half months into this new economy, and the staff and I have been keeping a close eye on things. We knew there were risks going into a brand new player-run economy. Prices are now frighteningly low for everything across the board, leaving shop owners scratching their heads about how to price their shops. Things cannot continue at the current rate.

As a solution, we have added some items for you guys to sell at AShop. It's still not very expansive, but there are some core items there that should help stabilize prices going forward. There's a new section for mob drops, farming, and basic mining blocks and ores! We've also added a couple of food options for premium purchase. Be advised that money for mobs will decrease slightly to adjust for the new additions to AShop.


Additionally, AEnchant will also get a slight makeover. We'll be swapping out new offers focused solely on enchanting tools, weapons, and armor with books + anvils. We'll also have two special level 30 enchantments that might be tough for you guys to get, but the payoff will be well worth it! :D

More exciting things on the horizon! Thank you all for making this server fantastic!

Thank you,
The Staff of Nerdcrafteria
6:00am EST Servers back up and running smoothly :D

Hey all,

As stated in previous threads, our servers are back up and running once more. We ran into some issues with our SQL tables this morning that brought down several key functions that we use, including Multicraft. We will be bringing down the server once more early tomorrow morning to make sure everything is all squeaky clean and to further prevent similar issues cropping up. We appreciate everyone's patience today!

Hope you are all looking forward to our Choose Your Side Snowbrawl tournament tomorrow and our first Disney Princess auction on Sunday! :D

-The Staff of Nerdcrafteria
EDIT 5:15pm EST: Maintenance is complete. Servers are coming back up.

We apologize for the inconveince. We've been battling issues all day with Multicraft and our mySQL tables. We'll keep this thread updated as we know more.

Thank you for your continued patience!

Update 11:40 EST:
Modreqs seem to work again.

Update 3:15 EST
All Servers appear to be back up, however Modreqs are down again.
Howdy all,

I have a couple of things for you guys this evening. First of all, the staff and I have taken a closer look at the current cap rate for the amount of credits a player can contribute to a player town, and we have decided to raise it to 25,000cr per player. This means that those who've donated the maximum amount to the Emerald Falls folks so far may increase their donation by 10,000cr if they so wish. I'd also like to clarify that we will be issuing credit refunds to players if the town they've supported fails to raise the required amount in their timeframe. There was some miscommunication on that earlier and I do apologize. To reiterate, credits will be used for town fundraising up until we deem that the majority in circulation are gone. After that time, player towns will be funded by llamas going forward.

On a related note, please keep those town submissions coming! We've had several good ideas pop up so far, but please make sure you and your fellow council members are 100% happy with what you submit. This post by Jinx has several great things to keep in mind before submitting your applications.

Some quick announcements~
  • JentheGeek has been hard at work on our very own FTB pack! :eek: She has done an outstanding job putting this all together for you guys, so don't miss out this season.
  • The Town Hall meeting is set for Sunday, May 1st @ 4:00pm EST in Discord. I'll talk a little about my first week so far as Head Admin as well as new donation options, VIP perks, and more!
  • Our first Disney Princess auction is...
Important Updates A New Era Begins!
Howdy Nerdcrafteria!

First of all, thank you all for your warm welcome so far. These past few days have been a whirlwind, and I'm very excited to get started to continue to grow and improve upon our awesome server! I feel so honored to lead this community. I did want to take this opportunity to also thank our outgoing Head Admin. @Islid has given so much to this server the past 3 and half years. We would not be where we are today without him, so thank you my friend for all you've done for us.

Just a quick announcement for you guys as I get settled in here. The Town Hall Meeting has been postponed until next Sunday, May 1st @ 4:00pm EST. There are a couple of items that I definitely want to cover, but this weekend has turned out to be not the best timing for me to properly prepare for you guys. I will be covering new VIP Perks, Player Towns submissions, the new Mini games world, and a new donor option! Please start thinking about what you guys want to see going forward. I'm here to get your feedback so come prepared.

That's all for now. DFTBA~

Your Head Administrator,
Kelsey

Important Updates The End
For all of the last three and a half years, I've watched this server grow from a mere concept, thought of one day during some of Hank's precious downtime, all the way into the glorious representation of Nerdfighteria (in all of it's wonderful humanity and complexity, of course) that it currently is today. So, it is with great regret (and a little bit of mirth, sorry) that I must finally announce that I, Islid, will be retiring from the staff of the server.

Hold on, now! Don't set off the fireworks yet, keep the champagne corked a little longer, it's not going to happen immediately. However, it will be taking place fairly soon. On May 31st, 2016, I'll be formally tendering my resignation to Julie (our liaison with Hank) and stepping out of the Head Administrator role for Nerdcrafteria. The server won't be shutting down, I'll explain below. There are a number of reasons for this, some of which I can discuss, some of which I can't. I don't believe I should paint it all rosy if it isn't though, so I'll try to start there.

A large part of it is, honestly, that I have found it difficult to get the same level of enjoyment and fulfillment I once did from managing this server and seeing it succeed. That's not to say I don't want the server to succeed, but rather, that it now takes too great an emotional toll on me to see it come to pass. I've been working in some capacity managing gaming servers of various kinds, from stints on private WoW and RuneScape servers all the way through a string of Minecraft staff positions. Managing this server, while certainly one of the most intriguing staff experiences I've had, has been nonetheless extraordinarily stressful nearly from day one. The community has such differing needs and desires from communities on other servers, and I'm sure I don't need to point out that at least a few times this has led to some serious misunderstandings on my part about how you guys would collectively operate as a...
UPDATE: Town Hall Meeting has been postponed to Sunday, May 1st @ 4:00pm EST

Folks, it's been a little while since we've had ourselves a nice Town Hall meeting to talk about the goings-ons (going-ons? goings-on?) of the server, and I figured we ought to rectify that! So, we're going to have ourselves a town hall meeting just like we did a month or two ago to have ourselves a bit of a chat about a couple of specific issues, and then open up the floor for discussion of anything you'd like.

Some of the things I'd like to talk about:

- The upcoming Minigame world!
- Options for the VIP rank perk replacements!
- The new Caches donor option!
- The recent town idea submissions!
- A new staff town idea!
- Some special event ideas!
- And more!


This will probably last a couple of hours, at least, like it usually does. I'll try to get through all of the specific things within the first hour or so in order to offer a decent amount of time for the open floor at the end. And yes, that's right, just like last time there will indeed be an open floor time for anyone to bring up any topic they'd like to discuss. The staff obviously reserves the right to refuse to comment on certain things (usually because we need to keep SOME surprises for you...) and discussions about things like recent punishments and whatnot are not welcome.

The good news is, because this is in Discord, there is no person limit! Literally as many people as we would like to include can make it, including all of the staff who can pop in. Because of this, what we'll likely have to do (to prevent people from talking over one another constantly since there'll be a few dozen people at least) is to simply mute everyone who isn't staff, and have people who wish to speak either type in the Grand Central Station chat or ask to be unmuted for the purposes of the discussion. We'll...
