    - Restarted the server to update a couple of plugins and free up memory.

    - Enabled the '1MB Control' features. Starting at 90%.

    - Certain 'creative restrictions' in Survival mode should no longer complain to you.
    Note: If they do, report it!

    - Fixed '1MB Economy' features, less double messages, and more dynamic messages.

    - Shift-clicking to get the items of the same type quickly into the /sell interface is finally working. Enjoy!

    - Using [item] while holding an enchanted book should properly display the book's content again.

    - Fixed some Creative mode permissions and made sure they're in the right group. (thanks for reporting!)

    - The internal beta phase for /emotes has started! Sign up on Discord!

    - With Mojang's poor 1.14.x performance and chunk issues, not to mention potential corruption of region files bugs, .. we are going to hold off until 1.14.3 and just wish for the best. UUUUUGGGGH ..

    - mcMMO: Wolves should be less dumb about killing themselves in certain conditions.

    - mcMMO: Fixed drops for multi-block crops.

    - mcMMO: Over-fishing is a lot more forgiving for real players who actually fish.

    - We've put a feature-lock on 1MB Core 2.6.3, our focus will shift to the Summer-update.

    We've been working on /warp oldtown, come have a look! (no stealing, griefing, or we will murder your face)

    May 27th, 2019:

    - Restarted the server to free up some memory.

    - Did a manual backup of the server after noticing the automated system had a process freezing (and I want a guarantee)

    - Organized a bunch of old todo items so I have a better overview of what's next to do for me.

    - Updated a couple of plugins that were simple maintenance updates.

    - Put a pause on testing 1.14 due to it's massive cpu guzzling performance.
    Note: I really do not wish to run my fans at max rpm, and cpu around 100%, all day (compared to 1.13.2 at 0 to 8%)
    Note: And we will also wait until 1.14.2 Spigot / Paper is released for 1.14.2 so we can better test things again.

    - Received a donation from Yessah, thank you for this personal gift to the site! Much appreciated.
    Note: if you also wish to donate, type: /donate in the game, or !donate on discord to get started.
    Note: We now have enough donators to group them on Discord. I've just made the change.

    - Made the final changes to our very slow-going Spring update to the server. Which was all about processing player-feedback, trying to work on stability, doing loads of maintenance stuff and preparing for 1.14 and the Summer. Personal life really, really got in the way due to a loss in the family, thank you all for understanding.

    - Thanks to Mikey we can now share internal todo items to the discord team channel, which helps speed things up. I consider the test period for this to be over now, and will start making use of this.

    A quick impression of some of the builds on our server, make in both survival and creative.

    - Restarted the server for maintenance reasons.

    - Learn more about armorstands here:
    Note: https://omgboards.com/threads/1mb-armor-stands-information.261637/

    - The '1MB Jobs' feature has received a pretty big update, hopefully everything still works, and better!
    Note: Notice anything weird? Report it!

    - The '1MB Fun' feature has received a very small update to fix performance.
    Note: Stop being silly 1mb fun, and offer some new questions too!

    - The '1MB PvP' feature has been upgraded to better communicate with newer versions of other plugins.

    - The '1MB Hunting' feature has been upgraded to the latest version.

    - The '1MB %API` has been updated to better offer placeholders to a variety of plugins.

    - Heads-up: Per June we will have some new /rules, and July, and August, and September.
    Note: We will start to gradually make some changes to the server (and welcome your feedback on it)

    - The '1MB Shops' features has been upgraded to better support 1.13.2 and 1.14.x
    Note: The tests appeared to be fine, if you have any issues though, please do report them.

    - The '1MB Trade' feature was upgraded to be faster, less buggy, and to work with 1.13.2 a little nicer, and to offer initial support for 1.14.2

    - Heads-up: Per June we will be introducing the new version of mcMMO 2.x
    Note: This is a major update over 1.x and will come with quite a few changes. Please do bare with us as we will slowly work throughout June to tweak all the settings one by one.

    - [edit] Talking about heads, they weren't dropping, this has now been fixed.
    Note: Thank you _hepcat_ for reporting to Vloop.

    Bored of exploring, bored of mining for resources? If you're a green-builder player you can contact me on how to build in creative-mode in the /builders world.

    As far as we're concerned the Spring Update has officially ended, and we're moving on to the Summer Update for 2019. (yay Summer!)

    - Updated the '1MB Core' to the latest 2.6.3 version, the next update will be 2.6.4 and be considered our Summer Update.

    - Updated Spigot jar with these latest changes.

    - Updated '1MB Scripts' internal scripts for the latest 1.13.2 setup, completely dropping 1.12.2 and older support.
    Note: For server admins: If you require 1.12.2 for a convert, start the shell script with --legacy and it will work.

    - Updated '1MB Scripts' public scripts for 1.14.2 support.
    Note: http://scripts.1moreblock.com

    - Updated the server /rules, in regards to mentioning other servers.
    Note: https://omgboards.com/threads/260946/#post-757937
    Note: Please read before playing again.

    - Organized the internal TODO list for 1.13.2, finalizing the Spring Update todo list. Removing duplicates, outdated, and all that stuff (still took me 3 hours ARGH)

    June 2nd, 2019:

    - Restarted the server to free up a bit of memory.

    - The TAB-list will now show AFK-players with an orange `*`-prefix.
    Note: Screenshot
    afk-tablist.png

    - The TAB-list will now show `Gamemode` instead of all caps `GAMEMODE`, a little friendlier.

    - Upgraded the '1MB Core 2' plugin to fix a handful (okay maybe 30+) bugs throughout a couple of plugins it's hooking into. Including performance tweaks.

    - Worked on the basics of making it easier to handle certain permissions and commands for each world/player/rank/group. Jeez, so annoying.

    - Heads-up: Throughout June and July we will slowly be adjusting, tweaking, adding to, and/or removing, editing our rules.
    Note: Making some changes like the rules updates from yesterday, today, and tomorrow. So be sure to read the /rules when you join the game, or check the forums for details and examples.
    Note: https://omgboards.com/threads/minecraft-rules.260946/

    - Update to our rules regarding taking from chests, duping items.
    Note: By default when a player puts down a container it is automatically locked into their name. This is done with the intention to prevent access to it's content by others, in any means.
    Note: We have the general rule that taking from others one way or another without their permission is stealing/griefing, and we do (perm) ban for this.
    Note: Check our updated rules for some details and examples on what's allowed and isn't allowed moving forward June 2nd, 2019.

    - Added a one-time kit for Donators with some special. Keep it private please so it's a fun surprise for those who donate to the server.
    Note: One-time kit, get it by typing: /kits
    Note: If you've donated in the past, you can still get it!

    - A bit of extra info about donating to the server (since people asked)
    Note: If you want to donate, type /donate in-game or !donate on Discord
    Note: If you wish to donate by the way, any amount is welcome.
    Note: If you wish to be blue on Discord or in Minecraft, a minimum of $10 is currently required. This number will go up in 2020.
    Note: https://omgboards.com/threads/261543/

    - Updated the '1MB Economy' a little bit. You can now shift-click items into the /sell feature just how you'd do it in a chest. A much requested feature!
    Note: Video (watch until the end of the video fam-squad!)

    View: https://youtu.be/gkd6CbiVgW4


    - Don't forget in a few weeks the next Monthly mcMMO Event is here.
    Note: It will be about fishing, around the third week of the month.
    Note: Subscribe to the thread to stay up to date!
    Note: https://omgboards.com/threads/monthly-mcmmo-events.261544/

    - I finally had time to update the /event and /easter commands. Woops.

    - The '1MB Shops' feature has receive an update for better dependency support. This should improve 'playing nice' with other plugins we run. Oi oi oi ..

    - The '1MB Points' feature had some internal changes.
    Note: If your inventory is full, the item drops on the floor (instead of disappearing)
    Note: Added Trident for 250 points, (it's the armor stand in the list)
    Note: Video

    View: https://youtu.be/VEXWJEmSpUE


    - From now on we allow players to come online and chat using the Pickaxe App for Android. Just like Minechat.
    Note: We want active players that play, so don't use this for auto grinding. This is discouraged. Joining in on the active-conversation and hanging out with other players: perfectly fine.

    - Reviewed a bunch of random connections from players we've had in Jan/Feb and sanctioned their account after seeing them use xray mods, hack clients, grief/steal, or otherwise break our rules. Will do Mar/Apr later this week.
    Note: Reminder: Type /rules in-game, we encourage fair-play, not fail-play.

    - Moderated a batch of 100+ sign-ups on the OMG forums and blocked the spam accounts. Have you signed up on our site? omgboards.com!

    June 3rd, 2019:

    - Restarted the Minecraft server to activate some updates.

    - Fish can no longer be sold through the /sell feature.
    Note: Please use /fish shop

    - Raw vanilla fish price has been set to $8 per each.

    - Cooked vanilla fish cannot be sold anymore.

    - 1MB Fish types have not changed, you can sell them through /fish shop for the same price as yesterday.

    - Please note that our /rules have been updated and we now consider AFK-fishing to be automated fishing, and no longer allow auto fishing (we kinda already didnt' allow it)

    - The '1MB Menu' (netherstar) in the inventory will come back less often now, making it hopefully less annoying.
    Note: You can always type: /menu, and disable/enable it again.

    - Fixed an annoying issue with the '1MB Run' (/run) mini-game.
    Note: Now when a game is already in progress, and you type: /run, it will 1- tell you that you cannot join, and 2- the msg at the top of the screen will not show.

    - Worked a bit on better controlling (not) sharing inventories between certain worlds.

    - The '1MB Jobs' Miners and Builders should be able to get paid again for nether bricks.

    Sometimes you get double drops when you are shoveling or mining, so cool! But our MMO features can do so much more! Learn about mcMMO here! https://omgboards.com/threads/perks-for-playing-with-mcmmo.260970/

    - Worked on the mcMMO convert from 1.x to 2.x, also thanks to Nossr50 and Vicarious.

    Note: Thank you Ardoared and Vloop for helping!

    - The last week we've had some small maintenance changes, tiny updates not worth mentioning.

    - mcMMO had a few updates.

    - We've picked up some testing on 1.14.3 and improved our Mojang bug reports.

    - More plugins have been updated from 1.12.2 working on 1.13.2, to now 1.13.2 working on 1.14.x as well.

    - The protection plugin that uses /lock and /unlock, will now be less spammy, and use the actionbar for some of it's messaging.

    Thank you for playing on the server, it's awesome to see people having fun and making fantastic things. If you have any suggestions for us, please don't hesitate to let us know.

    Note: Important! Whatever you put in the GUI, it will be 100% deleted when you close it.
    Note: Tip! If you want to trash items, try /sell first? Get some /money out of it!
    Note: screenshot
    Screenshot 2019-06-15 at 03.38.36.png

    - Enabled the /cheque <amount> command
    Note: Hold paper in your hand, type: /cheque 50, or any amount you have, and it should transfer from /money to the paper. You can then gift that paper to others, or right click to get the money back.
    Note: If you gift someone or sell someone a cheque paper, you cannot ask for your money back later. So be wise and think twice before you give away money cheques to others. They do not have to return it.

    Note: (right) click will open the trash bin.
    Note: You can also just type /trash by the way ;)
    Note: What goes in, never comes out - we will not restore!
    Note: (left) click will let you break the sign.

    - Updated the way you receive new /mail messages.
    Note: Changed it to the newer clickable interface we're slowly using more and more. Meaning, you will hear a sound and get the text message that you have a new mail from a player.
    Note: Hover over the text msg and it will tell you that you can click it, which will open your mail inbox.
    Note: You can press the red [x] behind each mail to delete it.

    - Updated /list to the more modern version. (Enabled it to all groups)
    Note: Users with orange * are marked as AFK.
    Note: Now also includes x of y players

    July 4th, 2019:

    - Happy 4th of July.

    - Maintenance to the server engine has completed, and the server was restarted.

    - Potential serious issue with one of our core plugins has also finally been addressed.

    - Small typing errors caught by some players have been fixed.

    - Further tests with 1.14.4 show that performance is improving, but nothing to write home about. More worrying are the chunk corruption issues 1.14 introduces to our worlds. Despite our wishes to move safely to 1.14, it's unrealistic at this point (grrr Mojang!)

    - Builder ranks that haven't been used in 6+ months have now expired, through July our system will gradually downgrade Builders to Players to free up spots for active players.

    - Vloop had a fun zombie village survival event, if you missed it: Maybe again this weekend? Contact @Vloop

    - HEADSUP: We are really working towards better supporting the core of our survival server. Where we want active players who enjoy playing the game with friends. We support players being AFK for extended periods of time, but not to gain an unfair advantage. Not actually playing the game and levelling up for example wasn't allowed, but we will no longer condone it. To just name one example. Starting this year (and the plan was a few months ago with the introduction of 1.14) at our next /nether reset, players won't be able to build above world limits, such as a nether roof. So keep that in mine. And afk-ing to auto level through whatever method will no longer be allowed (even though it was already not allowed). This month is a "heads up" giving players enough time to get used to the more strict rule enforcing, and prepare for a nether/mine/end world Summer reset (get your stuff).

    That was a lot of text: We will this month better inform people through rule updates and world reset announcements.

    https://omgboards.com/threads/minecraft-rules.260946/

    - Temporary worlds will be reset in August
    Note: https://omgboards.com/threads/temporary-worlds-reset-in-august.261643/

    - Received an anonymous donation (personal gift) from one of our legacy players. Thank you!
    Note: I would also like to take this moment to thank the OG owner @Mikey and OG admin @Nix for their continued support on these forums, discord, and the minecraft server.
    Note: Without the support from all you awesome people this hobby of mine wouldn't be possible. Thank you.

    - Server restarted for maintenance reasons and to help performance on a roll-back.

    - Banned a bunch of griefers, NAUGHTY PPL!!
    Note: Don't bother appealing, you guys are network banned and will not get unbanned. Sorry.

    - HEADSUP: Get your items from the temporary worlds, in August we will do a temp-worlds-reset.
    Note: https://omgboards.com/threads/temporary-worlds-reset-in-august.261643/

    - HEADSUP: As mentioned yesterday, moving forward we will try to clarify our rules more and inform you guys if we do so, nothing really changed, but we're going to be a bit more 'strict' on our rules. Let's build a survival server!

    - The '1MB Market' has been updated, see below for details:

    If you submit a new item as a listing to the global market, you will now get notified in the theme of the server, it's easier to understand what the message was about:
    Screenshot 2019-07-05 at 17.43.47.png
    When someone buys a listed item on the global market, it will inform them in this theme what it was, how much it cost, and displays your new balance so you know how much you have left:
    Screenshot 2019-07-05 at 17.44.35.png

    New: If someone submits a new item as a listing to the global market, such as mrfloris here did with a golden hoe, it will now publicly mention this to everybody: Spamming the market to spam the chat is naughty! But how cool is this: you will never miss a cool sale again, type /market to find out more items, and see how much everything costs.
    Screenshot 2019-07-05 at 17.44.15.png


    If someone buys one of your listed items, it will now list it with more details, and inform you what you've earned. And lists your new balance. It's also again displayed in the theme of the server, so it's easier to recognize that it's about a market item.
    Screenshot 2019-07-05 at 17.43.55.png


    Have fun with the /market ! :)

    This changelog is specifically about a change in being away from keyboard (AFK).
    (See the end of this changelog to learn about the END world that's reset!)

    Old situation: You were allowed to be idle in the game, for reasons to hang out with others, to be temporarily gone, to play while you're at work. Stuff like that. It was not added to auto-grind or gain unfair advantage over others etc. We never kicked players for being AFK.

    New situation: The same as the old situation

    - Players are able to idle in the game for extended period of time. We consider them to be away from keyboard (AFK)

    - Players will now be marked automatically as AFK after a certain period of time.

    - Players will not get kicked/banned/sanctioned for being AFK (so don't worry!)

    - Players who are AFK can receive damage.

    - Players who are AFK will not be able to pick up items.

    - Being AFK does not count towards total play-time.

    - Using AFK to auto-grind to collect money, items, resources, is not something we want. If people do not want to actively play, they should AFK at their base or disconnect. Blunt example: Rebinding the key and putting weight on it to auto-grind mobs is considered automation and abuse of (anti-)afk: not allowed.

    - Using methods to prevent going into AFK mode (anti-afk) is against the rules. This includes, but isn't limited to say jumping, constant single-click interaction, anti-afk machines, command-repeating (any timers,macros are forbidden anyway), etc.

    - Players who are AFK show on TAB and /list, with an orange * next to their name.

    - You can check if someone's AFK, and why, by typing: /afkcheck PLAYER

    - The /rules have been updated:
    https://omgboards.com/threads/minecraft-rules.260946/

    Quick summary: It's perfectly fine being idle/afk on the server, we now just auto-afk you after a while. You won't get kicked for being afk. Using methods to anti-afk is not allowed. Being AFK comes with a few new settings like unable to pick up items.


    NEXT: SMAUG THE DRAGON

    - The /end world has been reset and is spawning into existence.

    This Summer update is about the new Nether dimension.

    - For more details, please see this thread:
    https://omgboards.com/threads/the-nether-heatwave.261655/

    - The nether has been reset, enjoy the update.

    - Moving forward from today on, players can no longer access the roof of the nether world.

    - New mobs have been added that only appear in the Nether, existing mobs might drop new loot every once in a while.

    - Due to the Summer Heatwave, the netherrack can smelt and/or set on fire. Be mindful.

    - Rule update: With this reset it's no longer allowed to be on the top of the nether.
    Note: https://omgboards.com/threads/minecraft-rules.260946/#post-758102

    Have fun everybody, if you encounter any issues please do let us know.

    A heads-up on the Mining world reset for August 1st.

    - The Mining world is being reset right now, and prepared to open on August 1st.

    - You can not connect to the mining world on July 31st, 2019.
    Note: If you 'find a way' you will get a 24 hour ban, any claim to the Mansion will be invalid.

    - You can connect to the mining world from August 1st, 2019 onwards.

    - The Mansion is right at spawn. First to Claim it, will be the owner.

    - Only the owner, once claimed, will have access to the Mansion.

    - Explanation:
    Note: We expected to be on 1.14.4 by now, but due to the terrible performance of 1.14 and the disappointing results after extensive testing, we are still not on 1.14.x. Since it's halfway through the year, and at least six months after the last reset of the temporary worlds, we have decided to give the players a fresh new world made with the latest 1.13.2 engine.
    Note: If we have more luck with 1.14.4 in the (near) future, we will upgrade to it. At which point we will reset the temporary worlds as always.

    - Rules:
    Note: Building and breaking anything in a temporary world is allowed, we do not consider it grief. Note that if someone made a temporary base - something clearly man-made - that it's desired to be a nice person and leave it alone.
    Note: Creating a base is obviously allowed, but not recommended, when someone steals your stuff it's technically not stealing/griefing as it's in a resource world. Use signs to lock precious items, etc.
    Note: Because temporary worlds are temporary (/mine, /end, /nether) you have to be aware that at any time we could reset the world for whatever reason, sometimes without a reasonable headsup. However, we really do try our best to inform people once we know we have plans to reset it.
    Note: If you wish to build: do so in the /general world, it's our permanent world, we will not reset it, and stealing/griefing in it is not allowed.

    Information:
    - The /end was the first to reset the other day, it's live now after some testing. The same 'rules' as above apply.
    Note: The Summer Smaug Dragon is hard to beat, team up!

    - The /nether was second to reset yesterday, it's live after some testing. The same 'rules' as mentioned above apply.
    Note: You can get a Summer participation token by walking 'into the fake portal'

    - The /mine world is being rebuild as we speak, like I mentioned earlier, you will be able to connect to it starting August.
    Note: The Summer Event for that one is: Claim the Summer Mansion!

    - World border: Every temporary world has a world border of 7500 x 7500, which is more than plenty for everybody.

    Before I go, I want to clarify that claiming the mansion is a first come first go event. To make it 'as far as we can', we will not say 'when' on August the first we will open up the /mine world. We wish everybody the best of luck.


    [ EDIT ]
    - The mining world has been reset and is live now, welcome to August.
    - Vloop found the Summer Mansion book, and claimed the area.

    August 1st, 2019:

    - The 1MB Internal version number changed to: 2.6.4

    - Beds no longer explode in the Nether / End worlds.

    - When someone returns from AFK, you can hover over their message to see how longer they've been gone.

    - A variety of angry mobs has been added to the Nether and Mine worlds, including a dragon Smaug to the End world.

    - The /end, /nether, and /mine have been reset (in the last 72 hours), and their chunks have been pre-generated. They have a world-border of 7500x7500, half of the main /general world.
    Note: When we upgrade to a new version of Minecraft, we will reset the temporary worlds again.
    Note: We will never reset the main /general or /legacy worlds. They are permanent.

    - Maintenance tools have been slightly automated, and now will stop when the server TPS goes below 19, or when players join the server. This helps us fix and optimize a lot of stuff without affecting gameplay.

    - Looking for beta testers for the new `1MB scavenger` feature.

    - Biome tools have received code fixes, hopefully this will make a few features we have not spit out errors and improve overall performance when certain commands are run.

    - Dealing with enchanted books on the server has changed, well... Internally. You as a player won't notice much of a difference. But now we can give/gift/create/find books a lot easier, calculate their worth and all sorts of stuff. Now I just need to find time to sort it all out.

    - Cleaned up the '1MB Effects' features, and are preparing to figure out which ones we will never use, or only allow team to use, and we can let players use. Another step closer to some fun items and features.

    - Updated the 'Blaze' warp to the new /nether location, to a blaze spawner claimed by player _hepcat_

    - Congrats Vloop for being the first to claim the Woodland Mansion (The 2019 Summer Mansion).
    Note: When you have a spot to place it, let me know, and I will get my truck and drive it to /general.

    - We've introduced "sneaky cooldowns", and yes, you will have a cooldown on a few things. Hopefully we implemented this in the last month without you even noticing it. Or at least, I haven't heard any complaints. Certain commands will now have a tiny tiny bit of a cooldown to prevent auto spamming. Other commands that caused performance issues received a cooldown timer right before or during the execution. Allowing multiple people to use them at once, without really being noticable. Over time we might do this for more commands, or perhaps even increase the cooldown (but remove it completely for higher groups/ranks). The goal is not to punish a player (except those auto clicker, and yes, we can better log who you are, so please stop that), but to improve the gameplay experience without those "you are on a 5s cooldown, stop moving, or you get annoyed blah blah".

    - Reduced connection times between network<->read/write databases, and dumping the payload to backup servers. This had a direct effect on this Survival server (1mb) because it required to wait until those connections were completed. Even though we weren't realllllly using them.

    - When we clear entities that are on the floor (which happens semi-automatically once there are x players online for y time, and there's been an x amount of entities lying on the floor in more than y loaded chunks, we now exclude a few items from being cleared, such as tridents. Don't litter! Please use /trash, /sell, or just pick it up! To avoid accidentally losing stuff you care about, pick up what you don't want to lose, first.

    - The /list command has been expanded. AFK users are marked properly now, and users are properly grouped, and groups are ranked.

    - Caves in the /nether and /mine worlds will now overgrow during the Summer with vines, cobwebs, and other things. Block changes will occur. Found something cool looking? Post a screenshot to our Discord channels!

    - Found a player using an old money dupe issue with the Jobs plugin. We gave a hint to please stop but you wouldn't. Sorry if you lost half of your items, jobs points and mcMMO levels. We've also changed your /money balance to something random. Your access to the economy server has also been removed. Please change how you play, which should be within fair-play, and we will keep this between us and you can consider this your second chance.

    - Looking for beta testers for job-quests feature. We need someone who's willing to be prepared to read the documentation and learn how it works, give recommendations, etc.

    - Fixed an issue with /jobs where it didn't respond properly when you had something in your offhand as well.

    - The "friends" features we want are apparently impossible. It seems every plugin and thing I've looked into isn't how I want them to be, and performs so poorly that after basic testing we are like 'nah bruh'
    Note: You want to pick up a development project and are not new to java plugin for spigot coding, and you don't mind volunteering this to our network? Man, contact me, maybe we can work something out.

    - The '1MB Heads' database has been updated, we have new summer blocks. Check the /market and /menu in August!
    Note: Show me your summer builds and you might get a few of these rare heads gifted!

    - The '1MB Mob Control' settings have been slightly tweaked. If for example the number currently calculated to 491, we changed it to 490 or 500. Depending what's in the favor of the player. We've run some mob farms and grinders in debug mode and did path calculations. And lowered the numbers slightly over and over until we noticed lag spikes disappearing and balanced against enough mobs still spawning. We're a community, grinding is allowed (auto isn't), but there's a global mob cap, chunk mob cap, and block entity cramming, etc. Finding a balance that works for all online players it tough; we're constantly trying to improve on this.

    - When using a money /cheque, the max value that can be set is now 250,000$

    - All player groups/ranks should now have 'item durability notification' when your item durability goes below 10%. It's an action message, and still easy to not see, so always pay attention to your items when they go into the red.

    - Player idle time has been set to 1200 for now. (20 minutes). After which they will be marked (Automatically) as AFK.

    - When someone does /mail send yourname blah blah, you will now hear a ding sound, and get a text notification that there's new mail. You can click on the text message to read it right away.

    - Repeat spamming will be dealt with more aggressively - if you are incorrectly sanctioned please let us know. I've done some extensive testing and so far it seems to be well balanced.

    - "Spam" is also blocked from showing in the chat, and the team is notified a bit faster (though, they have to be online).

    - Entering commands over and over again will be considered spam. Some of them are whitelisted already. If we forgot something please do let us know.

    - The /mail inbox will no longer be kept indefinitely. It will now expire after a year.

    - Players will be able to pick up the spawners they're able to get for their group (see /spawners) using a special pickaxe with Silk Touch V or higher (not 1 or 2!)

    - Example: If you are in a group that allows you to buy a pig spawners, you will be able to use the Silk Touch V pickaxe to break the pig spawners. It will drop as an item you can then pick up.

    - Example: If you are not able to buy for example a polar bear spawner, you will be able to break it, but it will break and not drop as an item.

    - Important: So check with /spawners, to see what spawners your group sells, those are the ones you can break and pick up with a silk touch FIVE pickaxe.

    - Information: You can type: /spawnerinfo to learn about spawners in-game, or check out this thread:
    Note: https://omgboards.com/threads/silk-spawner-pick-silk-touch-5.261657/

    - The price for repairing the item in your hand and all your armor has been raised by 25.

    - The price of buying a shulker box has been raised by 10.

    - A player can now just have a totem of undying in their inventory, they do not have to hold it to work. However, in exchange for this perk, we've included a 2,5 minutes cooldown. This is also as a means to prevent players from trying to game this perk to their benefit.

    - Elytra has received a boost, but there's a max speed. Some details:

    - Elytra has a speed limit of 150 mph, this used to be 200. This is a soft-limit, going over it is still possible, but boosts won't activate.

    - Elytra boosts are possible for some beta groups and a few other groups. It's still a bit weird on how it works, especially if you're left-handed. (sneak/shift key could activate boost every once in a while)

    - Elytra speedometer should appear to all groups.

    - The NEW on-join Messages system is now live. You will automatically notice it's different because it has additional information and pages, clicking on ->>next>> will bump you to the next page. Which will have additional account information. And again to get some additional server information (social links, website, discord link etc). It will now also be a lot easier to make this more dynamic, more personal, and with clickable content, etc. We will slowly make changes over time.

    - You can at any time access to new on join system by typing: /motd

    Okay, that's enough for today, hopefully I didn't mess things up too much. If you notice anything that seems to be wrong or broken, please do contact me on Discord or in-game.

    August 3rd, 2019:

    - Moved the network to core engine version 2.6.4, the beta got replaced with a final version.

    - Made the initial steps towards adding four new game modes to the server.
    Note: You will not yet be able to use these, we're going to use August to set these up.

    - Beta testing period for the new game modes will start this weekend, and lasts throughout August.
    Note: Starting with owners (internal alpha) > staff team (internal beta) > beta team and donators (public beta) > builders and default groups (live)

    - Information about the new worlds, new game modes, can be found here:
    Note: https://omgboards.com/threads/the-1mb-game-modes.261658/

    - The server has been restarted to make maintenance changes take effect and to upgrade the network core and server core engines to the 2.6.4 version.
