    - Turned off the Double Exp Weekend Event.

    - Turned off the Domination Weekend Event.

    - Reviewed the maintenance we did this weekend to the network (and we're not rolling back, it helped).

    - Added the first step to allow voting for the server.
    Note: This works, you can vote.
    Note: If this goes well for a few days, we will enable the 'rewards' for voting, and perhaps additional sites over time.

    - Added a sub-forum to our /forums, from where people can vote for the server.

    - Added a rotating '1MB Tip' that allows players to click to cast a vote for the server.

    - Players can (probably) use the command: "/votes" now.
    Note: Staff can (probably) use the command: "/votestop" now.

    - I finally got around to updating the Tablist.
    Note: You should now see your current rank,
    Note: You should now see colored names in the list,
    Note: You should now see which world someone's in.
    Note: Screenshots:

    - I finally got around to changing the MOTD from "A THE 2.4.." to "A 1MB 2.5"
    nether,caps.png

    - Officially started the '1MB Vote' feature, phase 1 (of three).
    Note: https://omgboards.com/forums/mcvote/

    September 20th, 2018:

    - Updated the "/vote" command with the 4th vote-server.
    Note: https://top-minecraft-servers.com/server/1moreblockcom/

    - Moved the following commands from commands.yml to our internal command editor.
    Note: This way we have more control over the commands, the permissions for them, etc.
    Note: Most of what has been changed: /test, /general, /legacy, /spawn, /skygrid, /nether, /end, /mine, /builders, /sanctuary, /hunting, /here, /market, /achievements, /playtime, /player, /hopper, /menu, /pet, /horse, /points, /jobs, and a few others.

    - Purged the '1MB Protection' database of data that's older than 90 weeks.
    Note: We haven't hardly had any grief reports, and very little data got purged.

    - Optimized the above mentioned database for better performance.

    - Updated the '1MB Protocol' library to the latest version.

    - Unused plugin related to Shields feature uninstalled.
    Note: It's for 1.10 but semi-worked on 1.12, defn. not working on 1.13, nobody's using it, etc.

    - Expanded the '1MB Placeholders' library.

    - Uninstalled an old lingering '1MB Exploiter' collection plugin.
    Note: Any bug that we had in 1.9->1.12.1 that we patched is already fixed in 1.12.2, no need for this.

    - Started 'Spawn 1.12.2 Community Update' phase 1 out of 3
    Note: Created a thread in the beta forum to ask beta testers to help spice up spawn.

    - We've had no further issue with fire causing build damage.
    Note: Thank you @DefianceCoding for helping fix this some months ago.

    - Out of Beta: Quite a few (group) commands have been moved out of beta.
    Note: In preparation of an upcoming update, things like /ec, /craft, /back, /sethome, /homes, /delhome, /home, are moved out of beta and internally considered stable. /j and /hat are limited to the builders group and up.
    Note: The next 'update' to these commands is with the first Autumn update.

    - Fixed an issue with /, introduced a new bug, but that's the fault of a plugin, not me.
    Note: Contacted developer to hopefully get that addressed soon hehe.

    - Admin now has the ability to set a note for a player.
    Note: Just a handy tool to help keep track of things like 'developer of plugin x', 'sister of player y', 'something'.

    - Converted old '1MB Death' feature with a newer one that's ready for 1.13
    Note: It's installed, it's configured, it just needs our funny death msgs back. (another day)

    - Moved '1MB Shops' out of beta and made it available to all groups.
    Note: Everybody can make 5+ shopchests through: "/shops"
    Note: There are a few internal issues, but they don't seem to affect the performance or the chests, etc. The plugin is also ready for 1.13.1 which helps.

    - Disabled /baltop for the yellow Player group.
    Note: Was always disabled, but specifically removed permission this time.

    - Enabled /baltop for the green Builders group (and above).
    Note: Was disabled, actually enabled now.

    - Updated '1MB Slotmachine' to fix a few minor issues.
    Note: Kinda took it out of private beta, it's sorta public (beta).
    Note: @RodolfoGiusti is helping build slot spots for our 1.12.2 spawn!

    - Disabled a bunch of commands in a couple of worlds where they're not needed.

    - Updated the '1MB www' records to point to the correct stuff.
    Note: Meaning that www.1moreblock.com redirects properly to https://omgboards.com/forums/minecraft/ again.

    - Updated the '1MB www' local record to redirect calls to port 80 to the proper end point.
    Note: Meaning that http://1moreblock.com/ redirects properly too now.

    - The overall consensus for grinding was how annoying the penalty is, I've decided to disabled mob-grinding and I will see how this goes.
    Note: If there's too much 'abuse' I will reconsider. Keep it fair people. Make sure you're not using cheats, mods, cat on the mouse, etc to 'auto grind'. We do look into this frequently for all players.

    - Hopefully improving UTF-8 support.

    - Updated the [tab] list slightly.

    - Cannot connect to the server? Make sure you have the right IP for 1MoreBlock.com
    Note: You can direct connect with 92.108.22.11:25565 (using the host is better long-term)

    - Announced mcMMO Triple Exp Acrobatics grinding event for this weekend
    Note: https://omgboards.com/threads/261461/

    - Went through an old todo-list and deleted obsolete entries, cleaned up what is left.
    Note: Any changes I made I've noted in todays changelog

    - Cleaned up the Minecraft Staff forum.

    September 21st, 2018:

    - Updated the links on the sub-forum.
    Note: https://omgboards.com/forums/mcvote/

    - Updated PMC to recognize the new IP address.
    Note: https://www.planetminecraft.com/server/1moreblock-com-4196299/

    - Updated my PMC profile.
    Note: https://www.planetminecraft.com/member/mrfloris/

    - Added sub-link for PayPal donation.
    Note: https://omgboards.com/forums/mcvote/

    - Added "/donate" command in-game.
    Note: A personal gift is always welcome, and up to you.

    - @Mikey completed the development of the Discord / Forum bot.
    Note: New forum content will be posted to the discord #forums channel.

    - Increased network compression from 256 to 512.
    Note: Hopefully this helps with the lag for some players.

    - Lowered the time for 'item-despawn-rate: 6000'
    Note: Down from 9000.

    - Updated the global setting 'enable-zombie-pigmen-portal-spawns: false'
    Note: Down from true, meaning zombie pigmen don't come through portals anymore, affecting gold farms. We have /nether, etc and do not allow player-portals, so we do not need this feature.

    - Server difficulty raised from 1 (easy) to 2 (normal/medium)
    Note: If this affects our gameplay and 'fun' too much, we will lower it again.

    - Prepared for some Autumn Update changes.

    - Updated the -test- and -dev- servers to the latest 1MB version.

    September 24th, 2018:

    - Restarted server after doing some maintenance.
    Note: Waited until there was nobody online.

    - Operating System upgraded from 10.13 to 10.14
    Note: yay.

    - Updated '1MB Version' protocol features to better support 1.13.1 clients connecting.
    Note: We still recommend to connect with Vanilla 1.12.2 to our 1.12.2 server.

    - Updated '1MB Core' version to 2.5.1 for Minecraft 1.12.2.
    Note: This is an internal change, the Summer Update is now behind us.
    Note: The next update will be the Autumn Update, version 2.6.x

    - Updated the '1MB Spawners' feature to fix a few visual issues.
    Note: Thank you Brianna for the fix.

    - Updated the Protocol Library to fix minor issues, but this benefits other plugins that depend on it.
    Note: Stability improvements never hurt right?

    - Upgraded the '1MB Gift' feature.
    Note: Today I will test these internally, will make them public tomorrow. (minor improvements)
    Note: Typing: "/" will no longer run the /gift command, woops.

    - Updated the '1MB NPC' feature to better support 1.12.2.
    Note: Want a custom NPC at your worldguard protected build area? Contact me! I -might- just ..

    - Updated the '1MB Server' feature to be more compatible with the latest Vanilla MC Clients
    Note: This is in regards to how our server shows on your server-list when you start the game.

    - Quick fix to the '1MB Placeholders' feature, now patched with per user chunk improvements.
    Note: This means we deal with the data before you get it, optimize it, etc. Helps with fighting lag.

    - Updated the 'mcMMO' notification features.
    Note: This is about the on screen notice: "you leveled up in axes, level 12 now"

    - Upgraded the '1MB Worlds' feature, better 1.12.2 support.
    Note: 24 hour intensive testing, if this patch worked, we will push it to all multiple worlds servers.

    - Updated the World Editing and World Protection plugins to their latest 1.12.2 Snapshots.
    Note: Fingers crossed this won't introduce more issues than it fixes.

    - Cleaned up after the 1MB Event: Acrobatics Grind we had this weekend.
    Note: We can do this more often, the same with adventure maps.

    - Complained more to the hosting providers involved with the massive packet loss at aorta.net
    Note: But they don't seem to care, I am just a little consumer.

    - Updated the "/donate" command a little bit.
    Note: Yep, pizza money is always welcome on paypal.me/mrfloris

    - Removed the /servers/logs/ log files from 2016 and older after a quick review.
    Note: The server automatically logs data, we value privacy like everybody else, there's no need to retain this data if we have no issues with players from 2016 in 2018. Early 2019 we will purge the data from 2017 as well.

    - Going through banned-ips and banned-username list.
    Note: Might purge some data tomorrow. We basically 'perm ban', but I noticed there's items in there that we can prune.

    - Going through the ops list and team groups lists.
    Note: This is a network wide review, we might make some 'tiny' changes. 'very' inactive community helpers are always valued, and welcome back in their position. We just desire active helpers.

    - Cleaned up the -test- and -dev- servers in preparation to 1MB version 2.5 and 2.6
    Note: Once this is done, a private-beta server might show its face.

    - Java 8 upgraded to latest macOS build.
    Note: Went into effect immediately.

    - macOS security patches applied.
    Note: Went into effect after quick server restart (took 37 seconds)

    - Reviewed security policy for the hardware/software, accounts, network.
    Note: (quick glance over and made notes to research some things for tomorrows update)

    - Discussed the "dreamland" idea with 1MBNetwork (roberto)
    Note: Players with a voucher 'world access' are eligible for early access when we go into beta.

    - Beta testing internally the /ec, /craft, /j, /back commands.
    Note: Moving away from 3 different plugins to just '1', which is ready for 1.13.1 (which helps)

    - Reviewing world border settings on ALL the network servers.
    Note: Going through 10 servers per day, this week.

    - Run "/1MBNetwork.sh --sync:all --type:players --args:settings.yml"
    Note: I just wanted to have this written down for future reference.
    Note: Basically what this does is allow us to figure out which users play on various servers, and sync up their player/inventory/world, etc data. Some players might not upgrade in rank, stuff like that. This custom shell script I wrote allows me to sync this on all the servers at once. Just needs to get done once a year.

    - Pruned the /backups/archive/ files based on age, version, etc.

    - Cleaned up the OMG forums 'minecraft' section, both the public and private threads.
    Note: It's nice when things are more up to date.

    - Temporarily bumped the per player chunk handling to help fight performance.

    - Temporarily bumped the per player memory allocation to help with creative building.
    Note: Will be removed when it's the right time.

    - Took note of all reported issues, negative feedback, suggestions, complaints, and bugs.
    Note: Quick fixed a couple of things, applied changes to all network servers.
    Note: Scheduled some important issues for being addressed later this week.
    Note: Made an easy to use list of the remaining items, hoping to address them during October.

    - Updated the Async task Library support.

    Phew, this was quite the morning, and afternoon. Time to go build something!

    See you guys on Discord! https://discord.gg/KzTDhxv

    September 26th, 2018:

    - Added the ability for someone to get a cosmetic perk when they donate.
    Note: A player is eligible for this in-game/discord cosmetic perk if the donation is over $10.
    Note: Cosmetic perks are active as long as your account is in good standing, and
    Note: cosmetic perks are active as long as the features we use support this (limited guarantee)

    - Enabled the "/donate" command to all groups.
    Screenshot 2018-09-26 at 19.21.27.png

    - Synced the 'Donate' group with the network.

    - Gave the Donate group their own color
    Note: In-game
    Screenshot 2018-09-26 at 19.20.40.png
    Screenshot 2018-09-26 at 19.15.52.png

    - Set up a 'Donate' role for Discord to match.
    Note: Discord role has a blue color too.
    Screenshot 2018-09-26 at 19.18.07.png Screenshot 2018-09-26 at 19.17.29.png Screenshot 2018-09-26 at 19.17.13.png

    - There are no additional perks being a donator, it's a cosmetic "thank you".
    Note: Though permissions are inherited from the Builders group.

    - How to get builders group? This is a 100% free upgrade for active and regular players that build cool stuff.

    Donations are 100% optional, certainly not required, and available now: https://www.paypal.me/mrfloris
    Note: These are considered a Personal Gift, and used to cover the cost of running the server or investing in developers, features or pizza.

    September 28th, 2018:

    - Processed all the chunks from the /general world to help improve performance.
    Note: 3,627,121 chunks total

    - Trimmed accidentally loaded chunks outside of the World's region.

    - Improved performance for /rtp

    - Disclosed there's a new private world, sneak peek #1 shared on Discord only.
    Note: Yes, that's all I will say at this point.

    - Made the world 'bright' in the new private world.

    - Restarted the server to make some new configuration settings active.

    - Tweaked the poorly performing Friends feature.
    Note: Not happy with this plugin, I might reconsider keeping this and find an alternative.

    - Did a bunch of stuff like fix a typo or change a color, it kept me busy.

    See you guys on the forums!

    October 7th, 2018:

    - Restarted the server to free up some memory and activate some maintenance changes.

    - Upgraded the '1MB Achievements' plugins.
    Note: More details below, this is for /achievements, and /mh achievements

    - Added "slay the owner" achievement in /achievements under entity kills.
    Note: Video

    View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P0sVWsCm1zQ

    - Removed the impossible mythical mob achievement.
    Note: Thanks @Jesseva69 for reporting.

    - You can cycle between '/mh achievements' by clicking on the empty fields
    Note: Video

    View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9uNTSpr1qK0


    - The '/halloween' world and features mostly live to all groups by the way.
    Note: Thank you @emmabear for helping build awesome stuff

    View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IxjfFHU9_UU


    - Updated the Tablist feature, cosmetic changes and tweaks.
    Note: Gamemode is now listed (survival, adventure, creative, ..)
    Note: The --- no longer overlay the black box of the tablist, this is a bit nicer now. I've also added a few colors, these might change: Give me suggestions!
    Screenshot 2018-10-07 at 03.12.23.png

    - Updated a few internal operator commands to better support 1.12.2 and 1.13.1
    Note: Whoo.

    - Removed obsolete /fixmenu command.

    - Invalid commands now report back differently.
    Note: Oops, I do not know that command.

    - Fixed: Failed to set config option: tick-limiter.physics: 8192
    Note: Something internal, don't worry about it.

    - The /money, /pay, /balance, /baltop commands changed slightly.
    Note: Information {
    /money can now send money to others through /money pay <player> <amount>
    /balance still works, but uses a new version.
    /balance <player> now works to check the balance of another player.
    /money <player> currently does not work, it's my intention to bring this back
    /pay <player> <amount> now works without requiring confirmation
    /pay is now actually an alias to /money pay <player> <amount>
    /baltop new version works, but players will still see the old version.
    /baltop new version is limited to owner groups for now.
    /money send does not work, i am irritated about this haha. maybe soon?
    }

    - Made preparations to the 1MB-* shell script changes that are upcoming.

    - Purged rollback data older than 85 weeks and optimized the database.
    Note: The last time this was done, it was 90+ weeks.

    - Important protection update: /hopper and hopper transfer protection.
    Note: Please read {
    Before today when you placed a chest and then a hopper against it, or a furnace, or other protected item, it would not automatically transfer the items out of the hopper into the item (like a chest). It was required to type: /hopper, and hit the item to enable transfer. We've had quite a bit of feedback that this isn't desired. This has now changed.

    From today onwards, when you place a chest, furnace, etc that's protected, and put a hopper against it, the items will start to transfer.

    Important to know: The /hopper command now 'removes' the flag, rather than add it. If you had this flag on a chest, it will no longer transfer items. To resolve this if you notice this, is to re-place the chest, OR type: /hopper and left click the chest to remove the flag.

    If you have any issues, please do let me know.

    SHORT VERSION: The /hopper is no longer needed when trying to transfer items from a hopper into a chest.
    }

    - Added 5th Vote site; probably the last for a while
    Note: https://mineservers.com/server/ulhTpm5F/vote
    Note: Updated /vote to list all 5 vote sites.
    Note: Updated the omgboards forum to have the 5th link

    - Restarted the server to activate a bunch of team, beta, and other upcoming permissions, features and options.

    October 9th, 2018:

    - Restarted the server to free up memory and enable 1MB Version 2.5.1

    Note: 1.12.2 defaults to java 8 64bit with 4gb of allocated memory.
    Note: 1.13.1 defaults to java 11 64bit with 4gb of allocated memory.
    Note: 1.13.1 servers have been re-compiled through java 11.

    - Trick or treat prizes don't pay out properly. Thanks beta team for finding the bugs!
    Note: But we log the prizes, and pay them out manually each week.

    - Trick or treat prizes from week one have been paid out manually through /gift
    Note: /gift open

    - Trick or treating: Empty hand, knock on a door 3 times.
    Note: We have 10 doors right now, in the Halloween world.
    Note: Need help? Ask emmabear or mrfloris for help.
    Note: Reminder: You can go trick and treating daily!

    - Ghost Hunting now has 10 ghosts to catch.
    Note: Week 1: $1000 to find all 5
    Note: Week 2: $10000 to find all 10
    Note: Week 3: Prize goes up!

    - Ghost Hunting was reset yesterday, if you've done it before you can do it again.
    Note: Resets weekly.

    - The Respawn window is no longer there when you die. You simply go to the appropriate spawn point.
    Note: This can be /spawn, your set 'bed', or last death point, stuff like that.
    Note: This means you just don't click the respawn button and instantly respawn.
    Note: Video

    View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QTReUFrDN6c


    - The 'team' group has access to upcoming Mob-Capture feature.
    Note: Using a special arrow to capture particular mobs for easy transportation and storage.
    Note: This will soon be updated to a newer build and then the 'beta' team gets access too. We assume we can roll this out to all groups in some form later this month. Fingers crossed
    Note: Video

    View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VDPO_xlBjgA


    - Log files from the -live- server pruned.
    Note: /logs/*.log, anything up to February 1st, 2017 has been pruned.
    Note: The last prune was anything before January 1st 2017.

    The first week of October was the first batch of updates for the Autumn Update. The focus was on fixing bugs and introducing new fun features. I plan this second week of October to be the second batch of Autumn Updates, the focus being on maintenance releases, consistency and making more of the 'test' features more 'complete' and 'stable', so we can open them up to all groups.

    October 12th, 2018:

    - The weekend has started, the server got restarted again to make more maintenance changes take effect.

    - Halloween Month Reminder!

    We have a Halloween world this month, and prizes, loot, rewards, tricks and treats have increased. And will do so each week.

    To get to the Halloween world, which is a world like you've yet to see on our server, you type: /halloween

    Explore it, you will find catacombs, tombs, graves, paths, and angry mobs, Oh so many weird looking Halloween mobs!

    Mobs: They're a great way to grind your mcMMO skills, and get some extra Hunters Gold. Happy Halloween Hunting!

    When you join the server there's a scary darkness, welcome message to warn you to be extra careful this month, and a howling sound, just to greet you and set the Halloween mood.

    While playing you will also hear a random amount of Halloween sounds to give you a startle. Was that a charged creeper on a bat behind you? Stay safe!

    In the Halloween world, the graves might have nothing, or they hold a rare spawner with more mobs to fight, or they might have a lootbox with some goodies. Go explore. The map is big enough to have graves and tombs for everybody.

    A tomb is a bigger grave that holds secrets, including if you dig down far enough the entries to the catacombs with more scary mobs and more loot boxes. Do not go unprepared.

    Scarecrows, you can get scarecrow blocks through various means, once placed a countdown has started. What will you get? A trick or a treat? Best of luck, and yes, it is quite dangerous at times. But they're so fun! You can find these through team members, from lootboxes, from prizes when going trick or treating, or from the /market place.

    Trick or Treating, like I said, you can place a scarecrow, but you can also go to the Halloween world and find doors to knock on. Empty handed, just click with your left mouse three times, This is knocking. If you do it right you will see fire particles and then you get a trick, or a treat! Oh, you can play trick or treat each day, so be sure to come back for more.

    Each door that you can knock on also has a Ghost nearby. Either nearby the build, right next to the door, or somewhere inside. Be careful though, those Halloween mobs are everywhere!

    Right click the Ghost to release it, and a counter will start. Every day or so we will add between 0 and 3 new ghosts. So that's a chance each day to complete the hunt *again* and get the money reward *again*. Something extra for regular players.

    It will tell you how many ghosts you've collected and how many more to go, so read those in-game msgs carefully. If you have trouble finding them all (while I write this, there are 13! But soon even more!) then just ask someone in game or on Discord.

    Halloween skin, it's not a contest, it's not required, but we have a special reward for those who participate in Halloween this month and change their skin. When you let us know, we will demonstrate your skin all big in the Discord channel. And early next month you get a Halloween Participation reward. So join our discord, join halloween this month and let us know when you've changed your skin.

    Phew, that's a lot of stuff we're doing this Halloween event. It's almost like an adventure!

    And did we make it too scary and too difficult: I hope so! It's halloween, not valentines day :) And yes, the team members will just randomly teleport to you without warning, sorry for startling you (howls like a werewolf)

    tl;dr (summery) Type /halloween, find the dozen or so ghosts and doors to trick/treat on, have fun staying alive: It's halloween month!

    Week 1: Completed, we had loads of fun testing it with the team and beta testers. And sorry that we had a few bugs. 85% of those are fixed now.

    Week 2: Almost completed, few more days. The loot and rewards and prizes and goodies have all increased, and the third week we will have more doors, more ghosts, bigger money drops and loot. So worth coming back and trying it all again. New buildings by emmabear are already in the making and we're working on the Halloween Casino.

    Week 3: Halloween Casino, you can come back whenever you want and play for unique halloween prizes to win in the casino. While fighting halloween mobs. And like I just said, we will have better loot in the graves and when you go trick or treating.

    Week 4: Almost time for halloween! Come back to find out what else we're doing :)
