    January 1st, 2021:

    Hey, we made it through 2020.

    - I've taken the server offline, and made a manual backup to an offsite drive.

    - Bumped the version of 1MB to 2.8.5 and made the appropriate changes on the forums and in-game to reflect these changes.

    - Bumped the version of Paper so we're current.

    - Uninstalled all the Holiday Season 2020 plugins, and any other plugin left-over from previous events.

    - I've swapped and/or cleaned out some of the more static Discord channels, making a fresh start for 2021.
    Note: Hopefully this will make it easier to see for you what information is important.

    - If you wish to provide feedback about the Jobs and/or mcMMO plugin, you can still find the forms here:
    Note: https://omgboards.com/threads/1mb-features-feedback-forms.263612/

    - We had secret ranks on the forums here: https://omgboards.com/forums/secretranks/, but noticed nobody has used them. We're retiring them early instead of extending them. These secret Tiered ranks are now no longer obtainable.

    - All EPIC slots have been filled in 2020, the group is now locked throughout 2021. Donator group is still open and available at this point.

    - Applied a light bug fix at /warp herb

    - Updated a couple of custom alias commands we use from time to time.

    - Purged rollback data that's older than 52 weeks.
    Note: If you have builds, check them within a year, so we can help you roll back any griefs.

    - Purged log files that are older than a few months.
    Note: We still have this purged data in backups, if needed, but the live server doesn't really need them around 24/7.

    - Added a new command: /impossible
    Note: This will let you sync a list of impossible advancements. You can for example run that now and again in a few months. Or next year..
    Note: If there's anything on this list of impossible advancements that you do not yet have, it will grant them to you.
    Note: For example, we have portals turned off on our servers, so you can't achieve these advancements. With /impossible you can.

    - Started the Celebration Year - 10 years 1moreblock.com thread on the forums:
    Note: https://omgboards.com/threads/celebration-year-10-years-1moreblock-com.263614/

    If there are any more changes happening that I think are worth mentioning, I will update this today entry.

    Final note: This year we might not do daily changelogs. Just so you know.

    January 3rd, 2021:

    Someone reminded me on voice chat last night it's my birthday this month. O_O

    - Updated 1MB 2.8.5 to the latest version.

    - Updated Paper 1.16.4 to the latest build because they had a secret token leak.

    - Update CMI, CoreProtect, DiscordSRV, Citizens, AsyncWorldEdit, and mcMMO to their latest version.

    - Updated PyroFishingPro, HeadDatabase, PlotSquared, and SelectionVisualizer to their latest version.

    - Completed some owner/admin todo items to keep the list as empty as possible.

    - Identified a few potential permission issues on the server with the help of @the456gamer, and will gradually work on resolving those.

    - Some plugins got updated to help fix potential duping issues.

    - The server /logs/ files have been purged to a point, the data got archived first.

    - The Plan-B backup inventory plugin database got reset, archived, and the oldest one purged.

    - Rollback data to help fix grief has been purged, anything older than January 1st, 2020 will not be rolled back unless it's not a hassle to do so.

    - Certain players that got banned in the past for very minor offenses have their ban lifted.

    - The first Celebration Token has been found, there are 11 left, the next one will be introduced into the game soon-ish.

    - Some CMI related data has been updated and shared on my github.

    - Almost all the manual backups have been reviewed quickly, duplicate data has been purged, and it's all moved to the new backup drive away from the local drive.

    - The internal Maintenance command now visually and audibly announces to the players when the server goes into maintenance mode, what it means, why it is in maintenance mode. And it reports back when we're no longer in maintenance mode.

    - We have not sorted out the permissions yet, nor decided which group gets what color. But some groups have early access to the /glow feature. Soon-ish we will figure out the cosmetic perk per group. Give it a try and let us know how it goes.
    Note: Colored chestplate = available permission.
    Note: Chainmail chestplate = no access to this color.
    Note: Glowing chestplate = selected glow color (click it again to disable)
    Note: Paper = turns off any glow color.

    - Reminder: If you wish to get an account upgrade, for a group or rank, please do so by posting a new thread on the forums.
    Note: https://omgboards.com/forums/secretranks/create-thread

    - Some of the known issues with tab-complete and command-suggestions have been addressed.

    - Players reported certain player heads returning only the Steve Head, this is due to Mojang API changes, we've tried our best to make adjustments. Hopefully most of these issues have now been resolved.

    - Homes that were set in a world that no longer exists will now show with a barrier block in /homes

    - I've reviewed who is on the operator list, who's stuck in fly mode, or god mode, and have made the appropriate changes to their accounts.

    - I've reviewed 1500+ accounts of the most recent players in 2020 for oversized items in their enderchest, and inventories, and removed these items where appropriate.

    - Further improvements to the way the new hex colors are being dealt with have been made in the underlying code, as well as the plugins using these libraries. Hopefully this causes less annoying issues for us all. Mojang: You could have done a better job here, for realz though.

    - Future proofing Minecraft 1.17 and beyond for newer Java LTS releases, and chipsets like the Apple M1.

    - Some plugins were updated to fix (potential) memory leaks, item duping, etc. Such as mcMMO.

    - Luck on your fishing rod will give you more treasure now from all the fishing related plugins. Vanilla, mcmMO, /fish, Jobs, etc.

    - If you have enchanted books that do not work, let me know. I do not mind trading them for vanilla ones.

    - If you are missing Sweeping Edge on your existing sword, let me know. I will review the item and possibly restore it.

    - Grief logging tools have improved.

    - Added a new /impossible command to all the groups. If you type it, it will try to sync up missing advancements that are impossible. Try it today, in a month, end of Summer.. Because every once in a while we will add new advancements that we learn are impossible to get.

    - We've started updating some custom commands that shouldn't have suggestions. They should slowly improve over time as I run into them, or at least they should start showing the correct suggestions if possible.

    - Falling through the end portal in the end will no longer load the end-credits.

    - Identified an issue with world teleporting that could be used to troll others, we've made the appropriate changes of course.

    - Noticed that I left /point available to members, woops. Permissions revoked. Sorry.

    - Added the Celebration Stick to the Global /market, which lets you ride additional mobs.
    Note: Added the /ride command to disclose which players can ride what mobs.
    Note: Updated the groups/ page on the site: https://omgboards.com/groups/

    - Fixed an issue with Smite in the /points shop.

    - Updated some internal info from 2020 to represent 2021 now. On Discord, on the Forums, in-game, etc.
    Note: If you spot something saying the wrong date, feel free to point it out!

    - Cleaned up more Christmas event things. And started the owner/admin thread for the 2021 event!

    - The Feedback Form for Jobs is now being ignored. Internally we're processing the responses, and I've paid out the +500 points towards the /points accounts of people who left their IGN in the form. Check in-game for a new /mail.
    Note: https://omgboards.com/threads/1mb-features-feedback-forms.263612/
    Note: The mcMMO form is STILL open and you're invited to fill it in. Again, if you leave your minecraft IGN you will get 500 points for participating.

    - Updated the /ignore feature to include all public chat now as well. The new Social feature from Mojang should now also ignore public msgs if you add someone.

    And we will see how all of these changes run for 12+ hours, and continue our todo list, and prepare for the next items on our agenda for later this week.

    Congratulations to the MVP Tidala (for 2020)

    - Announced the MVP for the year 2020.
    Note: https://omgboards.com/threads/mvp-rewards-statistics-2019.261773/

    - Closed some completed tickets on Discord (finished some todo items yesterday, tidying up today)

    - Restarted the server with some new settings, for example; The End Credits will no longer play.

    - Fixed a potential dupe issue, and fixed a pretty serious Mojang 1.16 bug.

    - A small reminder, our community is for 13 years and up.

    - A celebration stick has been added the the /market, did you get it yet?
    Note: Suggestions for animals? Let us know on Discord!

    - Everybody that played during Christmas and picked up their gift has received an extra batch of Jobs points.

    - Updated the Tab list to the new 1MB 2.8.5 2021 theme.

    - Updated the Motd list to the new 1MB 2.8.5 2021 theme.

    - Updated the welcome/parting messages to match this.

    - Updated the 1MB Tips to match the new 1MB 2.8.5 2021 theme.

    - Plugins that were updated due to dupe issues: mcMMO, PyroFishingPro.

    - Plugins that were updated for bug fixing etc: AsyncWorkEdit, PlotSquared, CMI.

    - Introducing Soul binding of items to players, check this thread, and the new in-game command: /soulbind
    Note: It will be rare, expensive, and a privilege to bind your item to your character. Use it wisely. Incorrect use is on you.
    Note: Nothing is perfect, if you lose the item due to a bug in the server, software, plugin or this feature: Sorry.
    Note: We will be on 1.16.x for a while, so we can keep using this until it stops working. Do this to enjoy this 'now'.
    Note: If 1.17 comes out and we upgrade and there's months before this feature updates, so be it: Be aware of this.
    Note: If 1.17 comes out and we upgrade but this plugin cannot work on 1.17, so be it: Be aware of this.
    Note: The details of what you can do with a soul bind item, and also what you no longer will be able to do with this item - is all in this thread:
    Note: https://omgboards.com/threads/1mb-soul-bind-items-to-players.263617/

    We're still setting up the Celebration Soul, but now you can ask us questions about it, learn about it, etc.

    We're doing more 10 Year Anniversary events this weekend.

    - Drop party added to /celebration

    - New drop party command added: /celebration dropparty

    - New drop party area created (thanks Vloop for helping finish it)

    - Jobs and mcMMO Boosters have been enabled.

    - Next drop party is also today, at 10:30pm Dutch time (4 hours from now)

    - Sunday we will also have a drop party, but a lot later in the evening.

    - We will quickly check who was last online this week and from that group, who has been building. Then pick a random name after checking out their build and rewarding them with +250 points towards their /points balance.

    See you all online!

    Server Updates and a Thank you.

    - Thank you all for joining last night for the 10 Year Celebration Drop Party, we had lots of fun in-game, and on the Discord voice-chat. Even @Nix hopped on to say hello.

    - Tonight (about 9 hours after the making of this post) there is one more Drop Party, so don't miss out!

    - The Celebration Lootbox has been set to live, best of luck finding it. Details will be posted in the Celebration Thread on the OMG forums.

    - The Cooldown for /rtp has been lowered from 9 to 7. And the warmup/delay of the command has been lowered from 5 to 4. Hopefully this makes using the teleporter machine a bit smoother.

    - Additionally, in the future we will charge a bit of money to use /rtp, we've now exempted Donators - keeping the command free to use. On top of that, the warmup/cooldown has been removed for the Epic group as a perk.

    - The World Editing and Guarding tools have been updated to their latest versions.

    - Other plugins that updated because of this have also received a bump in version.

    - Our Placeholders plugins have had an update, as well as our Permissions plugins.

    - A small update has been made to the plugins related to the /builders world.

    - Soulbind is live, we can kinda use it, but we're doing the final testing. Don't worry, it's now a guarantee it will come. Things are looking great. Almost there.

    - We're working on compiling a list of 1MB Whitelisted mods/vanilla tweaks, etc. And potential changes in what is or isn't allowed. This will happen throughout the year, but hopefully during the Winter Update we can show players a list to answer some questions. Note: Anything with an unfair advantage is never allowed, this won't change.

    - We're also working on collecting impossible achievements to add to /impossible. We've had some great feedback from a few players and team members. Thank you for working as a team!

    - Updated the /celebration command and added a few more sub-commands. Stay up to date!

    - Updated the /motd again, slight tweaks. It's hard to make this one work for all screen sizes.

    - The /sell command has been updated. It will now no longer accept renamed or custom items. Only raw materials. This is now live to all groups.

    - Another mcMMO update, and we've made the first batch of tweaks to the config files. But we have a lot of work to do. Hopefully before the end of January we finish this update. For now, when you reach certain levels it will publicly announce it again.

    - Updated some permissions for Discord, tweaking it slightly.

    - Made some basic performance improvements to the server. Hopefully this helps the people with higher pings.

    - The price of Raw fish in /fish shop has been lowered from 50 to 10.

    - The price of Cooked fish has been raised from 0 to 10.

    - Cooked Cod and Cooked Salmon have been added to /sell (raw fish still sells in /fish sell)

    - Added server-signs, you can place a sign and set only the first line to something like [trash] and it will update the whole sign, turning it into a server sign.
    Note: {
    Code:
    [elevator]
    [anvil]
    [trash]
    [sell]
    [balance] (and [money])
    and [mail]
    
    }
    Note: Each server-sign also has a command, like /sell, /trash, /sell, etc.

    - Added new /elevator command.
    Note: The elevator feature is for boosted members and up to create. But everybody can use elevators that are created.

    - Added new /warp signs

    Okay, that's it for the last 72 hours of updates that I can share. Thank you for reading this.

    January 15th, 2021:

    Firmware updates today.

    - Took the server offline and upgraded all the software, OS and firmware on the system.

    - Meanwhile, I've restarted the Modem to get the latest firmware, and did a software update on the Router.

    - The switches and other hardware got an update as well.

    - Back online.

    - Maintenance from the last couple of days includes the following:

    - Variety of plugin updates in anticipation of Minecraft 1.16.5.

    - Purging of old rollback data and logs that plugins keep. Tidying up the setup a bit.

    - Revisited the Rollback features, making sure players do not have their permissions, but the appropriate team members do.

    - Cleaned up the Celebration Dropparty area. We will soon prep for the February drop parties.

    - Preparing the weekly Fishing Tournaments, we will announce this in #events on Discord and the Celebration thread on the forums here.

    - Updated the plugins related to /builders

    - /impossible updated for the last time in January with impossible achievements, if there are still impossible achievements, report them on the forum or discord, this way we can do this again in February.

    - Revamped the omgboards.com/vote tier 1 and 2 layer 1 items. Moving forward those are the items players get, the 2021 edition.

    - The Vote Items Tier 1 is now called Hero Set, Tier 1 : Hero Set.

    - The Vote Items Tier 2 is now called Elite Set, Tier 2 : Elite set.

    - And for Vote Items Tier 3, the set is called Legens, Tier 3 : Legend set.

    - If you have existing items you wish to convert, that is possible, contact me in-game when you see me.

    - Small changes made to the Jobs features.

    - Updated the mcMMO Fishing treasures. They're reset to the default.

    - The Permission manager related plugins have all been updated.

    - World Editing tools have been updated to a newer version.

    - The Placeholder related plugins have been updated.

    - Player Xray checks are being done. If you have cheated: run.

    - Player Inventories checks have been done. If you tried duping or exploiting: we now will double check manually.

    - Tweaked the anti xray for various groups. Hopefully this results in improved performance as well as less issues for players who noticed random ores that weren't really there. Reminder: xray is not allowed, obviously.

    - Discord <-> Minecraft integration has been improved, we will soon start pushing more MC events to Discord.

    - The /glow perms are sorted out.

    - We're looking into sign editing for certain groups.

    - User tickets have been reviewed.

    - Malicious Discord accounts and Minecraft accounts that we've found on the network have been synced. Yes, this means if you received a perm ban on our discord, forum or Minecraft servers, you will notice you will not be able to join any of our network linked services anymore. Tough sh..

    - Custom commands have been created to help create consistency between Tier 1, 2, and 3 vote items. Can't wait to introduce new fun things with Tier 3 soon. (Well, I've said that before..)

    - Helpers and up can now see vanished players online.
    Note: Vanished players logging in from the hub[0] will not be visible.

    - mcMMO Admin chat has been cancelled, we only have party chat, we now have /chat as a feature, and people can use that.

    - Vote Streak items for 2019/2020 have been paid out. Those who got 1 or more, will notice an in-game /mail to inform them. And the items are in their inventory.
    Note: 19 users, if you know you've voted weeks in a row and should get these tokens but didn't get any, nor the mail. Do contact me, we've focussed on the top 20 active users first.

    - /glow will now have a lore saying 'you can not use this' and 'click to pick this color'. Or something along those lines. Making it easier to understand.

    - Glow colors are listed on groups: omgboards.com/groups

    - PvP/PvE combat mode improvements.

    - You can now connect to our server with 1.16.5, we already had those bugs and others fixed. So we don't really need to upgrade. If we do in the future, then we will drop support for 1.16.4, right now: 1.16.4 and 1.16.5 can both connect to the server. And in the coming days we will start to slowly update references to .4 to .5 as we run into them.

    - Cleaned up old #team content, making sure I didn't forget something. Moved things to private tickets and todo items, and tried my best to stay a bit current and organise stuff.

    - For the Celebration stuff (10 years 1mb!!) we have had drop parties, lootchest drops, and fishing tournaments, and more. Stay tuned! Subscribe to the thread on the forum for ALL the details, or at least be in-game to not miss out events.

    - The /celebration commands have been updated.

    - Finishing soulbind, we will soon (i said that before) let you know how you can pick one or more items to soulbind.

    - We had a variety of bugs with a few plugins. We've spoken to those developers and they were awesome and updated their plugins to support our needs, fix those bugs, and address some things to work smoother. These changes are all live now.

    - The mcMMO Features Form on Google poll is no longer being looked at. You can submit stuff to it, but we will ignore it. We have taken note internally and you will soon get your free /points for participating.

    - Another features form will soon be published. Keep an eye on the forums, twitter, in-game and especially the features form discord channel.

    - We've introduced new server signs. You can make things like [trash], [elevator], [money], and a few others, check out /warp signs.

    - Updated 1MB 2.8.5 to the latest -dev- build. Which is flagged stable.

    - Made a new -dev- for 2.8.6, and we're prepping for the next thing.

    - Compiled a list for the Spring Update 2021.

    - Started discussion with the staff about give-aways for this year.

    - Updated server engine to the latest build. And patched our custom stuff as well.

    And I am pretty sure there's a lot more stuff done, either things I can't share yet, or they are private, or I forgot about writing down the changes I was making.

    January 28th, 2021:

    Almost February!

    - Updated all the 1MB plugins finally to 2.8.6 and tested them for a week.

    - Updated the Paper build to the latest, fixing some issues I guess.

    - Preparing to customize the view-distance per world. Hopefully helping with performance and your playing experience.

    - mcMMO plugin has been updated. The knock on wood feature received tweaks. Fishing has improved. Improvements and fixes to the scoreboard and some other visual elements.

    - The NPC related plugins received an update. Improvements and fixes to things such as pathfinding, gui system updates, packet sending tweaks, etc.

    - The Voting plugins received an updated. Fixes towards performance and error checking. Faster payouts in case players have lag. It will properly let the player know in the game chat that their inventory was full - so you can't claim you didnt' know they dropped on the floor. API issues seem to have been fixed.

    - Spigot / Bukkit changes, improvements to leash, packets, dupe issues, entity equip, and other patches towards 1.16.5

    - Paper changes, including fixes towards use of Shield, and something about distance and maps.

    - Loads of Jobs plugin changes. Including things like fixes towards inventory type errors, properly joining a job. actionbar improvements, and fixes for placeholders and boosters.

    - The /fish features have updated. Tournament fixes and the gutting station.

    - First proof of concept towards the 1MB Resource Pack has been made @the456gamer (and doing fantastic work on the backend!)

    - Finally identified a few issues with slow loading chunks. It's a Mojang bug from 1.4 that is still active. We've informed Mojang that there are code examples showing how to fix it - We have manually patched our server jars to try and get these fixes to work (and made some progress).

    - And finally identified issues with POI data mismatch. We can now find them in-game and perhaps address them to help fix these issues.

    - Made some privacy/security fixes to my personal alias commands I made within CMI, thank you @smeths as well for finding one.

    - Other CMI plugin changes included a new internal variable, updates to placeholders, performance improvements. Bug reports were processed, and some new things that really help us finalize bedrock breaking features and custom foods.

    - Portal (and vanilla portal) fixes.

    - Preventively banned over 75 "bad' usernames that we've noticed joining other servers. They're network wide banned and a handful of them have been reported to Mojang with the request to enforce their Community Guidelines.

    - Okay, back to mcMMO. Further changes include visual improvements in the game. You will notice reaching your power level to round numbers, as well as when you level up. Making it even cooler when you finally get to that 100th level increment!

    - async improvements to mcMMO might help with performance.

    - Found an issue with CMI and have reported it. This might mean certain custom items currently won't work. I am sure we will soon have a fix for this.

    - Fixes to CMI placeholders extend to other plugins as well now. We are now also able to create immortal animals! So expect the boss fights to go crazy haha

    - Respawning on the server has improved.

    - Updates to my github page, I've shared what I could publicly share again, updated things to 1.16.5 where I had the time to do so.

    - The Claim plugins have been updated, improving use of flags for things like nametag renaming within a residence/claim. Fixed chest protection. Improved things like claim entry/exit msgs, and a handful of other stuff. I can't wait for 1.17 !!

    - added omgboards.com/ranks to go to omgboards.com/groups

    - We had a few pages where discord links didn't load; temporary fixed https to http on these discord link.

    - The /warp fish has been made with the help of @m0o0oeh and many others. Thank you all! Have fun with the tournaments.

    - purged mcMMO backups/ data from 2020 and older (backups should have them)

    - purged /LWC backups/ data from 2020 and older (backups should have them)

    - Purged databases for the plan-b inventory backups, it's archived, but we had massive database sizes. Time to reset early.

    - purged /network/fingerprinting/ data from legacy 1mb/ (wont work anymore anyway) (backups should have them)

    - purged /discord discord-consoole-logs/ files from 2020 and older (backups should have them)

    - purged /discord old/ directory files, dont need them (backups should have them)

    - purged /discord *.old backup files, we dont need them. (and they're in the backups)

    - purged /cmi moneyLogs/ files from 2020 and older (backups should have them)

    - purged /cmi file-backups/ files from 2020, nothing from here that we need to keep

    - purged /cmi sellLog/ files from fall season 2020 and older (backups should have them)

    - purged /ah log files from 2020 and older. (backups should have them)

    - Improvements made to tracking playtime.

    - Custom permissions added for gamemode changes, allowing us to better control what each group can do. We will soon implement these changes.

    - Updated the Ender chest features. That's all I can publicly say about that.

    - Reviewed a secret internal feature that players won't know we are using, but they will use daily - this is related to dupe checking.

    - Spawner related features have received an update.

    - Managing armour stands should be easier now for players.

    - The /fish catching features have improved. We will soon be able to let people know which fish was caught #flex

    - Fixed a /fish exploit regarding fishing and deliveries. Naughty naughty.

    - Fish deliveries lowered from 200 to 180, and other /fish features seem to be balanced, and will soon get another balance update if I understand the dev right.

    - The totem feature from /fish has received fixes and improvements. I cannot guarantee it works. I still recommend to not use it.

    - Looking into adding more foods to the server, we already had this project going, but with recent player suggestions we are soon introducing a birthday cake, chocolate cake, and an forever cake. Stay tuned!

    - Other foods that we will introduce will be announced separately.

    - The first soulbind was a prize from fishing, and I believe it went to macadam. Congrats.

    - More Soulbind will be rewarded soon, and one soulbind will be dropped in February during the /celebration dropparty

    - Looking for creative builders from certain ranks, who want to help finalize the dropparty builds.

    - @the456gamer has started tweaking the /pvp feature we have. I've started on the plans for the /pvp world.. We will soon start internal testing and hopefully by Spring we can start beta testing with some eager warriors.

    - Further anti xray features have been added, tweaked, and players are under review, or have been banned, whitelisted. etc.

    - More custom recipes have been added to the game. Once we're confident of their configurations we will introduce them to you all.

    - Bedrock breaking features are being tested and reviewed. Once they're ready for beta testing we will invite some long term players for testing and their feedback.

    - Custom flag configuration has been added to our server startup scripts. We are reviewing this nonsense and tweak accordingly. Eventually we will share our findings in the github minecraft start script.

    - Looking for a 1.16.5 experienced builder who wants to help merge our 2 skyblock spawns into 1 new awesome 1.16 experience.

    - The first signs of "the purge" will soon be visible to all players. Pay attention. Avoid losing your mobs and items.

    - Still reviewing and deciding on the 2021 whitelist for certain features, mods, tweaks, resource packs. If it's not on the whitelist, assume it's not allowed: but you're free to ask about it. Ask before using avoids bans!

    - Players suggestions in the discord support tickets are being reviewed, sorry if it's a bit slow. As you can see by the length of this changelog I was busy haha.

    - Looking into adding a playtime top leaderboard at /spawn in the (near) future. Thank you @Hepcat for the suggestion.

    - Discord needs more #memes, get on it boiz (and girlz)

    - Cleaned up the discord #staff channels.

    - Cleaned up the discord #announcement and some other channels. Find something that's out of date/ Poke us!

    - We are looking into figuring out how to add more jobs and to increase the number of jobs. Other jobs plugin changes coming this year!

    - We are almost ready to start converting old worlds to 1.16.5 and importing them into /general and /builders.

    - When there's nearly 10 people online we will tell 1mb fun bot to be more active!

    - hologram related plugins have received updates to better support 1.16.4 and 5.

    - 1MB 2.8.6 has dropped support for 1.16.0 / 1 / 2 and almost all of 3 is gone too.

    - The discord related bots that merge mc <-> discord, have all been updated.

    - The world editing and world protection tools have been updated to a more recent build.

    Oh my, okay.. that's all I can remember right now. Oof! Sorry for the big one.

    - Probably updated the rules that apply to our community slightly.

    - Villager handling has changed on the server.

    - The /claims plugin has been updated, we can start to find motivation to configure it.

    - More /fish features fixed, improved, etc.

    - Giving more Spy features to the helpers with a private spy channel on Discord.
    Note: This isn't to spy on you, this is to help find malicious users, spammers, etc early.
    Note: The reason for this internal change is so I can give the team more responsibilities and I can have less.

    - Broadcasts in-game will sometimes show up in server-chat channel on Disocrd

    - added player playtime top 5 at /spawn (left of emerald road where the horse barn was

    - Soulbind is a thing, be active, play, dont miss events, and you can get it.

    March 19th, 2021:

    It's time to say Goodbye to the Winter Update and welcome the Spring Update 2021

    - Oof, Covid-19 we're kind of tired of you, how do I uninstall?

    - Wow, Chris from mrbeast played on our server! And wait, was that mrbeast donating over $10k to @Vloop

    - OMG, is our forum over 20 years old now this year? That's worth celebrating this year. And so we have !

    - 1MB, this is crazy but, march 7th we existed 10 years with 1MoreBlock, and we celebrated this community. And more to come this year.

    - So many things have happened, it's too much to mention. New players, and old players must all be so overwhelmed, I am sorry!

    - But BUT !! And stay with me: We are now a day away from the Spring Update 2021, we can take a breather and gather our thoughts.

    - We've learned from ten years of running a community. This means changes to the rules and policies for the forums, discord and the game are coming. We've made the first step in the last year, but it's time to try our best and do better!

    - We've learned even more the last ten years playing with awesome players, and some toxic ones. We're going to adjust our rules so we can give smiles and hugs to our awesome players, and make it less appealing for toxic players to be here. We have the time now to apply what we've learned and do better for all.

    - Plugins have come and gone in the last ten years, we're going to use this Spring Update behind the scenes to see what we can do to bring some back, or to make the ones we use work for 1.17 and beyond.

    - We're also going to improve the plugins we do run. We're going to turn off a few features to make it simpler for new players. Or maybe open up some cool features to regular players so they can make the most of it.

    - Builders and other groups can be requested on the forum, we will try to communicate this better. Updating your role is less exclusive moving forward. We are 'new' to groups. We had them, but it's tough to try and make something where one could go 'you are new, you are not allowed ..' no no no, It's not about punishing new players. We are learning this and we will do better. The goal for us in regards to groups is not to limit you to be a player vs builder, or pay to bypass that. Our goal is to say thank you for playing the more active you are - and to help make life a bit easier so you can focus on your awesome gameplay. A fine balance, and we're going to do better. The Winter Update gave us enough information that we can make changes now in this Spring Update.

    - Rules, policies, and our thoughts about what kind of community we are and how we can move forward. It's all going to get a good thinking through and then over time we will slowly introduce some changes. We've given a headsup already in regards to a few of them. See below:

    - Grief/Rollback Policy Changes 2021
    Note: Starting March 20th, 2021, moving forward:
    • We will require a certain amount of playtime before we region protect an area. But we will protect it a lot quicker!
    • Reports are to be made within a few weeks to a few months after the grief, it will be the responsibility of the player to keep an eye on their build. You know your builds the best!
    • We will store data with a guarantee of up to six months to roll back. Meaning if you report many months later and we have purged the data, we unfortn. can't any longer go the extra mile and dive into our archives for you.
    • We will purge data every month with a cut-off data of 30-ish weeks. (Sometimes we skip a month)
    • We will purged archived databases from 'way back' a lot more often. For example, in 2022 we will purge all rollback data backups from 2019 and older.

    - Wait, what does this mean? This means if you are an active player and want the guarantee of no-grief, you can request a region protection and we will go out of our way to help you achieve that. But if you don't have a region protected and someone griefs it, please note it sooner than later. Our data used to go back more than half a year, now it's up to half a year. Thankfully we almost never have any grief, so don't panic! Just keep an eye on your builds.

    - Another changes that we gave a headsup on is about the Rules blacklist/whitelist and examples/clarification.
    Note: Starting March 20th, 2021, moving forward:
    https://omgboards.com/threads/community-rules-policies-and-guidelines.260946/#post-772835

    - Wait, what is that about? This means if you play the game without any mods and the vanilla launcher and vanilla client. All official, no stolen alt account etc. That this doesn't apply to you. If you however wish to install certain data pack, resource pack or modification that you should/could check with us first if it's on our whitelist or blacklist. Technically and to simplify things: Everything is allowed that helps you for accessibility, cosmetic changes, or to add fun to your gaming experience. But Nothing is allowed that gives you any unfair advantage. There are some grey areas, and we will try to clarify those. So don't be shy in asking. Inquiring about a custom game experience is welcomed, getting caught with a hack client or xray pack, etc. can be a perm bannable offense. This Spring Update we will try to be more open about this, to learn more about it all, and share with you what we share with players who have been asking.

    - All our rules and policies can be found here: https://omgboards.com/threads/community-rules-policies-and-guidelines.261832/ And yes, it's a lot to read: You all ask us a lot of questions! :)

    - But! We're looking to do better. This Spring Update we're looking for a Community Helper. Someone who has the time, who loves to help, can write English well enough to correct me (and I am sure my English isn't that great these days). And who is familiar with how to use (XenForo) forums. If you think you can help us write and edit documents to better communicate our content to (new) players: Contact us! https://omgboards.com/threads/staff-position-looking-for-community-helper.263632/

    - Okay, to the techy stuff.

    - The server engine helper 1MB "network" plugins are all deprecated, we now have a single patch that hooks into the server engine as a helper and helps us run the network the way that we demand and want it. Thank you to so much Kev for your nearly five years of awesome help. You're the secret ninja behind the scenes that helps us.

    - The 1MB version is now 2.8.8 and it is running live on all the servers. We're going to purge all the old data and never looking back again. We now support Spigot, Paper, Tuinity and soon Airplane. We have dropped support for 3 other engines and any older version that 1.16.4 (since .5 and .4 are basically the same).

    - Upgrade paths have been created for PRE 1.16 worlds to 1.16.5 and from 1.16.5 to 1.17.x worlds. We're just waiting for Mojang I guess.

    - On 1MB server we're now running the latest 1.16.5 build of Paper, we're current. Fingers crossed this doesn't introduce new issues.

    - The mcMMO plugin is now up to date, any known issues are resolved, I guess.

    - Known issue with mcMMO, we might have some players with corrupted data who had their levels reset.
    Note: REPORT that to us, and we will dive into a backup and see if we can find out what you had and help restore them.

    - Worth Update coming, we're using the Spring Update as an excuse to make changes to our economy again. This is a grace period between 1.12 worth values and 1.15, then now 1.16 and the upcoming ore changes for 1.17. Instead of being forced to make bigger changes we're going to use this grace period to make predicting adjustments that aren't too big. (And add more 1.16 items!)

    - Our custom commands are going to get a visual update, but this depend on free time. I've worked really hard on prepping for this. We have the tech/tools/and experience now. What is left is free time to sit down and spend an hour on updating a batch of commands. This is about visual changes. An easier 'interface' so to speak that looks more appealing. Easier to understand text, less placeholder values and hopefully it's easier for players to understand and find information.

    - CMI Plugin updated to fix a bunch of stuff that we use, zrips is pretty awesome. I am glad I don't run outdated essential plugins anymore and use a much more modern solution.

    - The /trade feature has received an update.

    - Some land claiming plugins have received an update. Hopefully supporting newer versions of other plugins better, while dropping support for outdated versions (which we dont use anymore either). And this can lead to improvements in performance.

    - The /jobs plugin has been updated, this is a more stable release of the same version. Hopefully it doesn't introduce issues: REPORT them to us! pls.

    - We are aware of the /lock and /unlock plugin spitting out 'something went wrong, report to admin' issue, we made some changes and fixed up a database. Hopefully this is now better. Keep letting us know if it goes wrong pls!

    - The CMI configuration file had some entries left for legacy worlds we no longer have running, this has been cleaned up by me and roberto.

    - We can no longer reproduce the losing of inventories when you reset an island, but boy is it scary. What a bug! We're aware of it but it's really hard to debug and figure out. It's probably due to multiverse-inventories being such an outdated and old plugin. We've done our best. I do recommend players to just store their inventories and ender chest before changing game type and resetting islands. A reset does come with 'clean out enderchest', if you teleport around while doing this that can lead to issues.

    - Our goal with the Spring Update is to get our Discord ticket list down to 100, not have it be more than 100. CAN WE? Probabliy not, but we will try.

    - Starting today we will start purging very old data, and we will announce our 2021 "The Purge" - it's been ten years since we've done one, basically. Anyway, we will explain soon. Don't worry: If you play and logged in 2020 or 2021, you're account is safe :D

    - Rumors about an official server resource pack are TRUE @the456gamer is working on learning every once in a while what we can do and can't do with an official resource pack. And we will at this point not require it to play. It's meant as a compliment to make certain features more fun or appear more custom. Who knows, maybe some epic players can pre-test it with us at some point this year. Maybe donators too. We are not there yet, but we're working on the tech of it behind closed doors. For example, making sure our feature support these custom items, or that we can recognize them in the resource pack etc. I won't bore you with the details.

    - We will update our Github repo this Spring Update as well, that's all I am saying about that. :)
