    January 28th, 2018:

    Note: The following changes are to the -vanilla- survival server.

    - Added the ability to sit down on chairs.

    - Added the ability for the default group players to do the following commands:
    > /cmi back
    > the back command goes to last death location as well now.
    > /cmi sethome [name]
    > /cmi removehome [name]
    > /cmi home [name]
    > /cmi tpa [player]

    > /cmi warp
    > /cmi playtime

    - Moved away from 1MB's 'minecraft' shell script to 1MB's 'start' shell script.
    Note: This basically means it's forked into the background, hooked into the network, and runs 24/7 until /stop

    - Shut the server down to (see below)

    - Backed the server up manually (and marked it as a template)

    - (here) Started the server back up again to:
    Note: free up some memory, ditch garbage collection, and start fresh with latest plugins and configurations.

    Thank you everybody who watched the live-stream and the players dagmarski and Refrection for playing.

    But there's more:

    Note: The following changes are to the -abbie- survival server.

    - The server software has been upgraded to the latest nightly build.
    Note: Preparations have been made for the upcoming 1MB 2.4.2 update.

    - A couple of plugins have been updated and have been configured a little better.

    January 30th, 2018:

    Note: The following information is for the -abbie- server.

    - Took the server offline for maintenance.

    - Updated world rules to improve item and build protection, the following changes were made:
    Note: {
    TNT and certain explosions no longer cause block damage.
    Endermen no longer grief your builds.
    Certain entity (item frames, etc) have better mob protection.
    Fire and Lava should no longer spread (in most worlds).
    Lightning no longer sets builds on fire.
    Enderdragon and Withers no longer cause block damage.
    And neither do fireballs.
    }
    - Ender Crystals should be protected now.

    - Made item frames and armour stands a personal object, they should be protected now.

    Note: It's still a survival server, so stay safe.

    - Spawn-protection per world is set to 32 blocks. Don't build too close!


    Note: The following changes apply to all the servers.

    - The 1MB 2.4.1 core has been updated internally to fix some exception errors caused by running the plugins (the commands worked, this is internal issue).

    - Updated CMI accordingly to address GUI interface issues.

    - The Jobs plugin has been upgraded to include newer features and bug fixes.
    Note: Not available to all servers and groups. Limited preview access only.


    Note: The following changes apply to the -live- and -vanilla- servers.

    - The servers have been shutdown for maintenance.

    - The -vanilla- server has been moved to Maintenance mode.
    Note: 48 hours to inform players to move from 55565 to 25565.

    Note: To get there: /warp vanillabuilds

    - The -live- server has had a bit of maintenance and is back online again.
    Note: Any permission or performance issues: please report to mrfloris in-game or via the forums/twitter/facebook.

    February 1st, 2018:

    - Whoo, new month already!

    - The server move for -vanilla- to the -live- survival server has been completed.
    Note: And will automatically expire on Saturday morning.

    - The Spigot nightly builds have been updated and synced to all network servers.

    - The '/jobs browse' plugin has been updated to fix a few issues and introduce some new features.
    Note: Most usergroups on most servers now have access to this feature, go play with it.

    - A manual backup of the -network- folders have been pushed to the external backup drive.
    Note: And older archives of 2017 have been pruned (where logical).

    - The 'old' Essentials /afk command has been removed from specific groups, and

    - The 'new' 1MB /afk command has been enabled for all groups.
    Note: To use, just type: /afk
    Note: It's allowed to afk 24/7 on our servers.

    - The 'old' Essentials /back command been removed from specific groups, and

    - The 'new' 1MB /back command has been enabled for all groups.
    Note: This also fixes the little bug we had with it.

    Note: Going from 1MB core network version 2.4.1 to 2.4.2

    February 3rd, 2018:

    - Shut the servers temporarily down for maintenance.
    Note: When I say this, it's usually for no more than a minute to five minutes.
    Note: A lot of work goes into preparing and testing, the shutdown and restart is the mandatory last step.

    - Updated the 1MB 2.4.1 core network engine to the latest changes.
    Note: Final step before the 2.4.2 update.

    - Build a new Spigot 1.12.2 nightly.
    Note: And synced it up with all the servers on the network.
    Note: All the servers now run on the same .jar build, all 1.12.2.

    - ViaVersion & ViaBackwards, and ProtocolSupport plugins removed from the network.
    Note: To connect, use a Vanilla Minecraft 1.12.2 client (some mods allowed).

    - Reviewed all user feedback and fixed top priority items for all the servers on the network.
    Note: And took note, came to consensus, and took action appropriately.

    - Updated and upgraded a bunch of 'core' plugins on the network, including, but not limited to:
    Note: EssentialsX, CMI, MobHunting, Administrative and Staff tools, anti grief protection, etc.

    - Tweaked some configurations to add more consistency of features/commands between servers on the network.
    Note: So /afk and /back act the same on all servers, etc. More changes to come with the 1MB 2.4.2 update.

    - Double checked the automatic backup procedure since it's a new year and made some tiny improvements.

    - Pruned the /backup/archive/ manually, but automatic backups will now more (and more carefully) prune as well.

    - Manual backup created of the whole network, and pushed to offline backup drive.

    - Reviewed the big -todo- list for the network, prioritized it based on player-experience and importance.
    Note: And scheduled in some hours before Spring season starts to go through a bunch of them.

    - Reviewed the -live- todo list and the start-up of the -live- server and prepared some improvements.
    Note: Creating a test server to implement some changes that bother us all.

    - Finalizing the -test- server setup for 1MB 2.4.1 in preparation of version 2.4.2.

    - Cleaned up the 1MB forums section a little bit and made sure more content is up to date on our current situation.

    - We have an internal mod list for the mc client, it's still for 1.11.x but I've been testing everything on 1.12.
    Note: And will update accordingly, as things appear to run stable, just don't have time today.

    - Lowered the memory requirements for most servers, and updated their start .sh scripts accordingly.

    February 4th, 2018:

    Note: The following updates apply to the -abbie- server

    - Upgraded Spigot to the latest nightly.

    - Double checked a bug we found on another server to ensure the issue is fixed on -abbie- as well.

    - Expanded some world borders from 250 to 400.

    - Unlocked the /dreamland world.
    Note: There's a portal at /spawn to get to the land.
    Note: The /dreamland command can be used as well.
    Note: The /menu (nether star) >worlds> Dreamland can be used as well.

    - Information about the dreamland world.
    Note: Has a border of 250, which might expand in March.
    Note: It's a custom generated world like you've never seen before!
    Note: It's a survival land, but that might change based on active gameplay.

    - Sidenote: Monsters still don't spawn, but hunting and killing mobs can give you unique items, achievements, mcMMO levels, and in-game money. Which is super helpful further down the year.

    - Competition: Practice building, because this Spring we will have a competition. Details will follow.


    Note: The following changes apply only to the -live- server.

    - Updated Spigot to the latest nightly build.

    - Updated some region permissions and group permissions.

    - Turned on server-wide Pvp options.

    - Enabled the pvp toggle command, to turn it on or off, just type: /pvp
    Note: Make clear agreement with the enemy about what happens when you die!

    - We're still looking into the vanishing inventory bug and are looking to improve storing inventories with more frequency to disk.

    February 6th, 2018:

    - Went through some of the player feedback and tried to address as much as possible.

    - Updated the 1MB plugin to better support the latest versions of the plugins we're using.

    - Upgraded our CMI plugin from 3.5 and 3.6 on all the servers on the network to 3.7.latest.

    - Fixed a few bugs with the mcMMO ability progress display that comes on the screen once in a while.

    - Sigh, still no fix for mcMMO's entity glitch, but we're not giving up.

    - New -test- server for 1MB 2.4.2 has been created and alpha/beta testing phase has started.

    - Thanks to @DefianceCoding the fire-tick issue has been addressed with a custom protection plugin.
    Note: If you spot a build that's perhaps been burned down, report it to staff and we'll fix it.

    - Naughty griefer reports on the network have been processed by 1MBNetwork and the banhammer has spoken.
    Note: We believe in perm-bans, however, ban-appeals go directly to 1MBNetwork.

    - Features from two plugins are merged into one of our core plugins, we will transition them out soon.

    - Fly-kicks restrictions have been reviewed by ender_vine and adjusted accordingly.

    - Most of the above changes have been synced with the network, and custom servers to improve overall stability.
    Note: This includes the upcoming -event- servers and servers like -abbie- -wl3- and -creative-

    - GUI development for 2017 has finished. New plans and updates for 2018 are made and slowly implemented.
    Note: Spot any issues with the /menu (nether star)? Please report them to mrfloris

    - Moving forward note: Mojang has announced that 1.13 and 1.14 will be 'merged' as one release (basically)
    Note: This means further delays, but potentially just 'one' big update for us. Which seems promising.
    Note: While we 'desire' to properly upgrade, we cannot until Spigot and the slew of plugins that we use are working 100%
    Note: Our focus will remain on 1.12.2 at this point. Spigot already has an API preview though, so developers (might just be) hard at work.

    - Finishing internal .sh shell script updates, if there's reason to share it via 1MB-BuildTools.sh we will update scripts.1moreblock.com with a new release for 2018.

    - Since December 9th, 2016, we've been using EssentialsX, we're slowly moving commands to 1MB and CMI plugins.

    - We're looking into ways to move away from a few custom plugins to provide us with /staff, /web, /forums, /rules, etc. And move them into the core 1MB/CMI plugins. If you run into a permission issue please report it to staff.

    - Besides protection from LWC-entity we're looking into adding further entity protection, the -test- server might need beta testers this spring. Interested? Contact mrfloris in March.

    - 1MB plugin (our main engine) now has been UUID and offline support. It took me a while, but I figured it out.

    - A small reminder that anti -away from keyboard- machines are not allowed, because it is allowed to be AFK. We do not kick for being idle in the game. For all we care you hang out 24/7 just for the company.

    - 1MB plugin now has better support against naughty mods and people. Play fair people. If you do, you will have such a nice time playing minecraft.

    - 1MB plugin now has better support for great mods like Optifine and some good mods.
    Note: good being: not a mod that gives you unfair advantage(s) in the game.

    - BDCraft / Sphax texture pack, and a few others like FaithFull and R3D resource packs are better supported.

    - Better support for Shader packs as well. Minor tweaks added to help improve everybody's performance.

    - Better support for Optifine 1.12.2's releases. Enjoy a smooth gaming experience.

    - A small reminder that we have permanent and temporary worlds. Learn which is which!
    Note: Perm: /spawn, /general, /legacy, /sanctuary, /hunting, ..
    Note: Temp: /end, /nether, /mine, /test
    Note: Griefing is not allowed, if you didn't make it, you dont' break it. (certainly applies to the perm worlds)
    Note: Breaking to get resources is allowed in the temp worlds (so that's kinda not griefing, just be mindful)

    - Updated the Protocol Library support.

    - Updated the Async task Library support.

    - Updated the Placeholder Library support.

    - Some servers on the network are preparing for Valentines!
    Note: That's a blunt hint. Keep your eyes open.

    - Removed the option to roll-back anything prior to 2016.
    Note: and basically most small things before 2017.

    - Reviewed our existing plugins and their annoyances, from feature behavior to typing errors, and reported them privately to their developers.

    - Updated the Operator toolset to the latest version.

    - Looking for something extra? /skygrid, once there, type: /challenge
    Note: Maybe you get some great l00t and money prizes.

    - Leaf-decay testing and monitoring has been turned off. It runs as expected and configured in regions, worlds, etc.
    Note: This means we consider this stable and leave it (get it?) as it is.

    - Removed a couple of tiny plugins that helped us in the past with performance issues, they are default in Spigot, 1MB, CMI, etc. and no longer needed.

    - Updated the World protection plugins (edit/guard) to their nightly build.

    - The -vanilla- survival event is completely over, world merged with the -live- server.
    Note: Special thanks go out to Refrection and dagmarski for being awesome people.

    - Mini -event- coming to the -live- server this week with random 30 to 60 minutes of Double mcMMO Exp.

    - Small note to anybody who connect to us through an IP, and not the HOST.. use the host!
    Note: Host is 1moreblock.com (default port), the IP is 1moreblock.com, and not a number... that number changes once in a while.

    - Small reminder about advancements and achievements. The more you do in-game, the faster you get them!
    Note: Type, /achievements to get an idea what you're aiming for.

    Okay, I think that's enough for today :)

    February 16th, 2018:

    - I believe we have identified the issue with some servers in the network and have completely addressed the issue.

    - No user or data loss has happened, so that's a good thing :) Gonna keep it as it is.

    - Maintenance and improvements have been pushed to the alpha version of 1MB 2.4.2 and will be part of the Spring update.

    - The -live- server and all network servers will receive no maintenance updates until some time in March.

    - Happy gaming everybody. Sorry for a kinda 'weird' February :)

    - Upgraded Spigot to the latest nightly build.

    - Upgraded the Statue plugin to better support skin support.

    - Fixed the problem with sitting on stairs that sneaked in for certain ranks/groups.

    - Fixed an issue with temporarily kicking someone who were slamming the network menu item.

    - Removed a few plugins we no longer need.

    - Checked the ticket system on the network: all tickets have been replied to.

    - We've re-enabled the /craft and /ec commands for the Builders groups.
    Note: The workbench and enderchest.

    - Enabled the /pvp toggle, so you can finally slay your friends.

    - Upgraded the upcoming /jobs feature to it's latest version.

    - Updated mcMMO for hopefully some better 1.12.2 support.
    Note: The super ability entity glitch is still not fixed, it's a pain.

    - Internal plugins like Placeholders and Protocol libraries and apis have been updated.

    - The system had an OS update to fix some maintenance and security bugs.

    - The servers on that system have been network synced, saved, and backed up prior to system restart.
