Boy, it's been 10+ years, I hope I really remember this stuff correctly.

Version 0.0 The Mikey Spring Era
Our Universe came to be, constructed by MadMikeyB, March 7th, 2011.
Before the 'stable' version of Minecraft, there was an early and public beta, and Mikey found out early on that Minecraft was just pretty awesome and would soon be pretty mainstream. The old veteran crew came online and learned how the game worked, without all these modern fancy things like fire-spread, smart mobs, stairs, and slabs, or creative mode, heck, there weren't even any mods or plugins.
Hosted from what I remember was his personal VPS, the world at 250mb and how Minecraft run back then, it soon became a laggy experience for all. But we weren't going to give up a universe that we started. We just had to .. get .. one .. more .. block.
This meant we had to spread the load, and take it all a little bit more serious. An addiction was born.

Version 1.0 The mrfloris Summer Era
Together with a server move to my home and old dual CPU Mac Pro server, we started to share server management, resources, and take our precious world more serious. We upgraded to a newer version, start building for many hours in a day until one horrible day we came online and found everything griefed, or wait, was it?

Version 0 and 1 are known to us as the kwn.me server period in the history of our universe.

Version 1.1 The big update Winter Era
Minecraft became really popular. We suddenly had to deal with loads of new features, new blocks, and new players. And find solutions to handle all of this. Mikey got busy, I basically took over at this point. We learned how to use plugins, protect our builds with daily backups and building a world for everybody to join and play on. But luck wasn't really on our side. But we didn't stop fighting.

Version 2.0 The 1moreblock Dark Era
My Mac Pro started showing issues, players became inactive, and keeping Minecraft up to date became a hassle. Mojang was blowing up and plugin developers couldn't keep up in the beginning. Our priorities in life shifted and despite the intentions in 2012 to run everything on my iMac at home or some VPS online. Tests showed world corruption, world protection was flaky, and personal problems stood in the way to find motivation. The website, the community, and all that changed a little. It was all there, but we didn't quite .. have that magic that sparked version 1 the summer of 2011.

Some of us moved to another server, taking a step back from managing and operating a private whitelist only server. And in the meantime we started a new public vanilla Minecraft server and made new friends. Being a player instead of an admin for once, really suited us. But no worries, we have no intention of leaving our worlds behind. One reason why 2.1 never came that year, was partially due to performance issues, security issues, and lack of motivation. It was a dark era.

Version 2.1 The Dragon Egg Era
A new team member joined us, telling us to play adventure maps, try new worlds, do a sky block challenge, and build a fresh world. Together with the shelves filled with plans, we put our heads together and got the servers back online, invited our friends. And explored our worlds again. Dragon eggs spawning everywhere. You can blame Mistic_Ice for that.
The website came back online, the server run again with CraftBukkit and better anti grief protection. A multi-verse plugin was added to merge the worlds together and get our builds where we wanted them. Slowly we got organized again in 2013-2014.

Version 2.2 The long 1.8 Era
But just when we got our spark back and got everything up to date. Minecraft started upgrading from 1.6 to 1.7, and 1.8, plugin developers staying behind and some DMCA issue with Mojang or some Bukkit developer causing issues. Stagnating everything once more during 2014 and 2015. A long period where we run our worlds only when we felt like playing. Stuck on 1.8 eventually, watching players moving on to 1.9 and 1.10 and recently 1.11. But, we got our spawns organized, our worlds organized, and our plugins organized. Things were running way more smoothly, and plans for 2016 to upgrade to a new iMac and a lot more were made.

Version 2.3 The Fun 1.11 Era
A huge upgrade to our server and universe. After many weeks of testing and trying it internally, I finally figured out a way to convert from 1.8 to 1.9, 1.10, and finally to 1.11 - and take the plugins with us. No item, world, or data loss or any corruption. It was a challenge, but we have a stable universe now. And I will try to let you guys know the changes to the server in this changelog:
https://omgboards.com/threads/minecraft-changelog.260948/

Version 2.4 The Summer 2017 Update
A significant update from 1.11 to 1.12, and a lot of internal changes. Conflicts from previous versions have been ironed out. And tools have been put in place to speed up fixing current issues a lot faster. Admin / Operator tools have been taken to the next level. Features have been organised and events have become default features. More events are planned and a super fun Summer is ahead of us. There's a new /menu and the world borders have been removed from most worlds. The system the server runs will receive an update early July 2017 as well. Actually, a pretty good one. This is a big step forward and one that has been a long time coming. Improved gameplay, improved RPG, improved events, improved performance. Better 64bit support, and full java 8 support. [edit @ July 3rd] The server has finally moved to the new iMac 2017.

Version 2.5 The Summer 2018 Update

Since 2017 we've been constantly working on improving backing up, performance, maintenance of plugins. Updating and upgrading plugins. So we got to a stable enough point that we can process user feedback, bugs, do some events, and grow the server a little bit. We've been making plans for features, testing and implementing changes. We've started converting old EssentialsX to CMI and in 2018 we've upgraded the system ram from 8gb to 40gb by adding 2x16gb ram sticks. Spring 2018 we've moved to the version 2.5's first private and public beta testing of new features. We've had help from developers with making a couple of custom plugins to help fix fire spread and mcMMO events control. And introduced new features to the users a month at a time. During the Summer of 2018 we've pushed these to the public groups and customized them to our needs. It's now August and we're basically done and ready for the next phase in preparation of Mojang's version 1.13.x and up of Minecraft. 1.8 and up legacy plugins will have to be replaced and/or removed and/or merged with 1.12.2+ and 1.13+ plugins with proper 1.13.x support. This will be our focus of 2.5. Once we're fully on 1.13 in the hopefully near enough future I will consider that version 2.6. Focus right now is 1MB 2.5.

Version 2.5.1 - The Autumn 2018 Update

We've been focussing on converting a lot of our plugins from older 1.8 and up releases that got updated to work on 1.12, to be build against 1.12.2 and 1.13.1, so we have better 1.12.2 and 1.13.1 support. We've had a few adventure maps, as well as -live- server adventures, a few new (temporary) worlds and the first taste of 1.13.1. The delay in 1.13.1 is due to some serious world conversion bugs in 1.13 that Mojang isn't fixing (they announced there won't be a 1.13.2 as their focus is on 1.14 now) Which was very disappointing. But we've reviewed our plugins and are at a 70% success rate. More testing will be done. Other 1.12.2 features that we are introducing we have updated our policy this Autumn Update to only introduce features that have 1.13.1 support, so we have them moving forward. A faster beta cycle is added in our policy as well. Meaning that as soon as something "basically works", we quickly tweak the basics of the permissions and invite our beta testers to give it a go. This resulted in October being a month with big changelogs and a big Halloween update as well to celebrate our Autumn Updates. This is also the first time we've played around with java 11 as a focus to move towards to with 1.13.1 and 1.14 in our future. Theme wise we've worked on consistency in how we visualize the naming, prefix, and colors. And make daily changes as we run into them the best we can. And options/feature wise we've pushed towards updating the plugins to fix bugs etc, as well as improve performance and stability. Anyway, there's more to come, but this is what I consider the big Autumn Update, in 2018, for 1.12.2, with eyes on 1.13 and 1.14. And internally the 1MB version got a bump from 2.4 to 2.5, and now 2.5.1.

Version 2.5.2 - The 2nd Autumn 2018 Update (November)

Mojang first announced their focus was on 1.14, and by now snapshots are out. And hopefully that means Spigot 1.14 is in the works. Thankfully they did release 1.13.2 to better support 1.12.2 conversions and increase performance. It's finally time to do Serious testing to upgrade from 1.12.2 to 1.13.2.

This means I've been making more and more preparations and have done way more testing. The changelogs will have all the details, as there have been so many - and especially today when CMI finally got updated to version 8 by me - that it justified to almost go from 2.5 to 2.6, but I've called it 2.5.2 instead. Delays due to some buggy AORTA/plugin combinations caused us to slow down some bigger updates. But I am almost back on schedule. This is a maintenance release with our eye on the future. While still introducing a handful of fun visual and practical features, as well as gameplay features that keeps everybody busy and building.

To be honest, I wish we were on 1.13.2 already - who knows, .. just having too much plugin compatibility issues right now to justify the move to 1MB 2.6.

Version 2.6.0 - The 3rd Autumn 2018 Update (end November)

Can you say wow? November 27th, we were down for 5 hours, and a few hours in maintenance mode, to convert finally from 1MB 2.5.2 and Minecraft 1.12.2 to 1MB 2.6.0 and Minecraft 1.13.2
Details are in the changelogs here: https://omgboards.com/threads/minecraft-changelog-2018.261256/page-5 and this thread: https://omgboards.com/threads/1-13-2-information-please-read.261517/

If this convert goes well, we will be on 2.6.1 within a day hopefully, and that will be our -live- version that we move forward with. A scary big update, fingers crossed.

Another significant change is that we've moved from Java8 to Java11.

Note to self, if this update of 2.6.0 fails, we will revert back to 2.5.2/1.12.2

Version 2.6.2 - The Winter 2018 Update (end Dec2018)

After a successful convert away from 1.12.2 we've been searching, fixing, and addressing bugs, issues, and player feedback. The goal is this Winter to finish all the events, prepare for Spring, while improving stability and performance for 1.13.2. Meanwhile we're slowly re-introducing various elements from 1.12.2 such as the old /legacy world, some older features, etc. We're very pleased with how it went, how the events and adventures have been in 2018, and how many new regulars have recently joined the server to enjoy it all. The 1.13.x update was a big one, quite stressful, but we've made it.

Version 2.6.3 - The Winter 2018 Update #2 (end Jan2019)

Patches, fixes, tweaking, stability, and introducing the mcMMO monthly events as well as a few mini-games like /walk and /run are here to stay (for a while). The changes with 1.13.2 were big enough between December, early Jan and now, that it justified bumping the version. I consider this the Winter 2018 update #2, birthday update. Pff, to the end user not a lot has changed, a couple of things here and there, but behind closed doors there have been 25+ changes on a daily basis.

Version 2.6.4 - The Spring / Summer Update (July2019)

Patches, fixes, tweaking, stability, and maintenance.

Version 2.6.5 - The Summer / Autumn Update (October2019)

Patches, fixes, tweaking, stability, and maintenance.

Version 2.6.6 - The Autumn Age Update (November2019)

Changed minimum required age on the server to be 13 and up, underage kids are no longer welcome on our forums, discord, minecraft servers, and youtube channel.

Version 2.7.0 - The Winter Update (Jan 1st, 2020)

We've upgraded publicly to Spigot 1.15.1 in the last week of December 2019, and from January 1st, 2020 onwards we've removed the ability to roll-back to 1.13.2. We've skipped 1.14.4.

Version 2.7.1 - The Winter Update (Jan 30th, 2020)

We've upgraded publicly to Spigot 1.15.2 in the last week of January 2020.

Version 2.7.2 - The Spring Update (April 3th, 2020)

Finally moved away from EssentialsX and GroupManager to LuckPerms and 100% CMI.
There's much more done, but it's all mentioned in the changelog.

Upgraded macOS Catalina to 10.15.4 (19E266).

Version 2.7.3 - The Summer Update (June 20th, 2020)

The Spring Update was about converting to a more modern system, finalizing what we've done before. And preparing for bigger changes in 2020. Hopefully if real life problems and stress get less that we had the time for that. The end of the Spring and start of the Summer seems to be about the worlds and the forums. Hopefully finally the update with the ranks as well.

Version 2.8.0 - The Minecraft 1.16 Upgrade (Summer Update July 2020)

The Summer update finished what we could do with 1.15.2 and tests have shown us there's no real downsides to upgrading to 1.16.1, so I've decided to give it a go.

Version 2.8.1 - The Minecraft 1.16.1 Upgrade Completed (Summer Update 2020)

Version 1.16.1 is what we've moved to, the grace period has ended. We will no longer have the option to roll back. Onwards to 1.16.2 we go.

Version 2.8.2 - The 1MB Groups Update (Summer Update 2020)

Version 1.16.1 and 1.16.2 is what we're using and updating to. We're sticking to 1.16, and our focus is on running 1.16 for quite some time. And to finish all our changes this Fall season. This Summer update included the clean up of legacy usergroups and introducing the new usergroups. We now have first, player, member, boosted, builder, donator, epic, legendary, helper, admin and owner.

Version 2.8.3 - The 1MB Groups Update (Fall Update 2020, part 1)

It's just about the end of the Summer, and Juuust about time for the fall season. But we're here in limbo. 1.16.3 has been released, and it's time to upgrade. Things are looking great, so we're going to give it a go. Usergroups have been addressed, a lot of work has been put into clearing bigger tasks. The groups/ and vote/ sites are being made, and we're ready for the Fall Season and their events. We are now on Paper 1.16.3, with 1MB 2.8.3.

Edit: Part 2 - the almost 2.8.4 version. (Fall Update 2020, part 2)

Hardware, software, resources, services, servers, etc. updated. 1gbit down, 50mbit upstream. Newer cables, modems, etc. Paper updated to the last 1.16.3 version, and support for connections of old + current + newer versions has been added. More updates here. And a proper update for 2.8.4 is coming. The network is now on docsis 3.1.

Version 2.8.4 - The 1MB Long-Winter Update (Fall Update 2020, part 3)

After the changes from the last 2 parts, we're now ready to be on 1.16.4, today that happened. The plugins, server software, etc. have all been updated and tested internally, then made live. If things go well we will stick to this version and move forward. This is 1MB 2.8.4 for Paper 1.16.4.

Version 2.8.5 - The 1MB Winter Update (2020/2021)

This is a maintenance season, where we will focus on the maintenance of our worlds, plugins, performance, etc. Making the best of what we have. Our community is now ten years old, 2.8.5 also allows us to start celebrating that this year. Welcome to 2021 everybody.

Version 2.8.6 - The 1MB Winter Update (2021 part 2)

This is a maintenance season, where we will focus on the maintenance of our worlds, plugins, performance, etc. Making the best of what we have. Our community is now ten years old, 2.8.6 also allows us to start celebrating that this year. Welcome to 2021 everybody and to Minecraft 1.16.5

Version 2.8.7 - The 1MB Celebration Update (2021 Winter Update part 3)

This is a maintenance season, where we will focus on the maintenance of our worlds, plugins, performance, etc. Making the best of what we have. Our community is now ten years old, 2.8.7 also allows us to start celebrating that this year. Welcome to 2021 everybody and to Minecraft 1.16.5 - we are now introducing updated tokens, custom model data, newer foods, soulbind feature, and bedrock pickaxe. Alongside cleaning up plugins, organizing plugins, and extending performance etc. We're prepping for 1.16.6 and 1.17 if any. Enough to justify a new version.

Version 2.8.8 - The 1MB End of Winter Update / Early Spring Update 2021.

Another maintenance release, we had loads of celebrations and we're cleaning up slowly. There's a post with more details of what all happened today on March 16th.

Version 2.8.9 - The Spring Update 2021 (java 16)

A bigger maintenance update. We're marking java8 as legacy, we've completely ditched everything java7 related. And java11 has now been replaced with java16 in anticipation for the fall season java17lts with mc 1.17.x / 1.18.x etc. Today we've had so many changes to legacy plugins to push them to the java11+ era that it justifies a version bump. If it turns out this was a mistake, we will roll back to the manual backup. But hours of testing makes it seem like things are fine.

Today we run on Paper, the latest multiverse-core/inventories (we haven't updated that since forever) and java16, 64bit. The details of any changes are in the changelog from today. The Spring Update is a maintenance update, this is a bigger step. The purge has started, old players for example on the forum and discord and minecraft that haven't logged in and have no playtime etc will be purged. Rollback data will be purged frequently until we have 6+ months left (instead of 12+) mcMMO players who haven't logged in in forever will get purged, etc. It's Spring Cleanup time.

As you can see, enough reasons to bump the version. Despite many tiny maintenance updates, they all were working together towards major bumps.

Version 2.8.10 - The End of Spring Update 2021 (finalizing 1.16.5)

Today Mojang is releasing version 1.17.0 and this 2.8.9 turned 10 build is to celebrate our ten year anniversary (little easter egg) but mainly it's to finalize the 1.16 era as we will now focus on upgrading to 1.17 when we can. There have been a few things that needed to get done in order to get ready. This is that update. All the plugins that are available for java16 have been updated for example. All the plugins are now up to date. And most of the active todo items have been completed. The worlds have been reviewed for caches and light optimization has completed, all the chunks in every world are forcefully upgraded to 1.16.5 now as well, ready for 1.17. This way we also have a .9 backup as well as a final .10 backup (handy for comparing corrupt data etc). See you guys soon with a Summer 1.17 update!

Version 2.9.0 - The Summer Update 2021 - Part 1 (1.17.0 upgrade)

Spigot and Paper 1.17 have been released, and our plugins are ready. We've made the best of the Summer Update by focussing on 1.17. And we've gone live with it. Java16 has our full dedication, and we're running on an early 1.17 paper build. Our worlds and plugins have been updated, and our resource worlds have been reset. The rest of the Summer is about trying to do fun things while doing 1.17 maintenance, including upgrading to 1.17.1 and higher.

Version 2.9.1 - The Summer Update 2021 - Part 2 (1.17.1 upgrade)

Spigot and Paper 1.17.1 have been released, and we've updated the server to 1.17.1 on the 7th of July. Our resource worlds have been reset. The rest of the Summer is about trying to do fun things while doing 1.17 maintenance, including preparing for future 1.18 upgrades.

Version 2.9.2 - The End of Summer Update 2021 - Part 3 (1.17.1 Maintenance upgrade)

For the first time in the history of our server the /legacy world has been unloaded. It is not gone, it is there. It's just not loaded. More less-used-worlds will be unloaded. We will continue to convert them up with future releases, and upon request we can load them in (live). We are not deleting them, but we're not really using them so it's time to not load it on start.
The other reason for the .2 release is that Tuinity and Paper merged, so instead of using going with Tuinity after 1.18, we're sorta on Tuinity already right now.
The rest is all 1.17.1 maintenance. Making plugins play nicer with eachother and fixing user reported stuff. Time to prepare for 2.9.3 for the fall update!
Our resource worlds have been reset.
We will also be preparing better for 1.18 now that we have more information about this.

Version 2.9.3 - Fall Season Update 2021 - Part 1 (Early Fall, Early Java, Early 1.18)

We're a week shy of officially starting the fall season, but that's okay. We're also early on Java 17 support, and early on 1.18 support. Today we've updated the server of 1.17.1 to work with Java 17 which has been announced by Oracle, and is an lts. And Mojang announced 1.18 via test experiments earlier, but now as an official public Snapshot. We've also looking into adding further connectivity support for players who want to use the 1.18 protocol to connect to our 1.17.1 server.

Internal version:
1MB version 2.9.3 (Fall 2021 (September 16th, 2021)), for Minecraft version 1.17.1, running Paper (git-Paper-263 (MC: 1.17.1)) build September 15th, 2021 with version 1.17.1 and older/newer-clients connection support. We're currently supporting Java 17 (64bit) for our servers.
(System Info: Java 17 (OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM 17+35-2724) Host: macOS 10.15.7 (x86_64))

What's next? I will discuss that here, the best I can:

Woot!

[edit]

Okay - not on phone any more.

Whew, what a journey! It's amazing to think that this little world I helped to start in 2010 / 11 is still around 6 years later!

I can't express my gratitude to my good friend Floris enough for keeping this server alive, it's still one of my favourite things to jump on and have a play.. and while life may get in the way more often these days.. connecting to this server always brings back that feeling of just mining .. one.. more.. block...

Reporting back on few solid months of gameplay, improvements, and fun events (see changelog for detailed details)

Version 2.3 of 1MB has been updated with newer versions of plugins, a few new plugins, and better configurations. User-feedback has been reviewed and where possible I've tried my best to implement them. Bigger new things for the 2.3 versions: Anti grief and anti cheat protection, and leaf-decay has finally been turned on. We've added events, and custom-to-our-server features, including 1MB-lootboxes. Behind the scenes we also have better Admin/Operator tools for running things smoothly. And we're slowly preparing for the Summer for future updates, future features, improved perks, and better group management. We are still waiting for a new system to improve performance, etc.

Small update. We've moved the content of the website www.1moreblock.com to my forum here at omgboards.com.
Accounts have been merged, content has been moved in the appropriate forums, and the domains are pointing to the new url.
There were just about 200 messages, it's easier to manage our Minecraft server through this website, than have to keep an eye on yet another website.

January (2018) Update:

The 1.12.2 beta phase for our Skyblock server will be starting soon. Stay tuned! We're almost ready to go live with this one :)

A new Minecraft server has been added that we internally call the Abbie server. It's whitelisted, and access is very very limited. Beta started in December and it's live now. Enjoy!

August (2018) Update:

Earlier this Summer we've upgraded the hardware from 8gb to 40gb, and had some server events, as well as added beta testers and had better contact with developers for some custom plugins.

Feature updates are listed here: https://omgboards.com/threads/1mb-seasonal-updates.260942/

Internally we consider this to be 1MB version 2.5.0 (the Summer 2018 update) for Minecraft 1.12.2, running Spigot 1.12.2

It appears I have missed writing down a few steps, but in the Autumn 2018 updates we've moved from 1.12.2 to 1.13.2 (2.6.x) and made improvements to stability, worked on fixing bugs (2.6.1), while prepping for all the 1.13.2 changes for 2019 (2.6.2)

The first post has now been updated to reflect this. I am very excited about having an active server Autumn/Winter 2018, and I am looking forward to growing the community of regular players and friends in 2019. While keeping an eye on Mojang's 1.14 development which is pretty huge as well.


[edit] January 18th, 2019

After more serious and bigger upgrades, testing and updates, we've made enough changes to justify bumping our internal version to 2.6.2, my birthday update haha

Spring 2019:

- Winter / Spring update to 2.6.3.

Summer 2019:

- A variety of changes spread out over Spring and Summer season are enough to put us on 1MB Version 2.6.4. We are still on 1.13.2 because Minecraft 1.14.4 is giving issues with world conversion, plugins, and performance.

- The changelog for 2019 has most of the details.

Autumn 2019:

- 1.14.4 bugs that cause corruption with player items, entities, and chunks is ignored, and we're skipping to 1.15.x that's currently in development and has most of those fixed. Hopefully this means the disappointing 1.14.x upgrade turns into an exciting 1.15.x upgrade later this year. Mojang, I am looking at you

The changelog has most of the summer/autumn updates. They are big enough to justify 2.6.5, especially now that we run the survival server on 100% 64bit OS 'macOS Catalina'

This is version 2.6.5

Just a small update to verify that we are done with the Winter Update, and are working on the Spring Update for 2020.
Small note: Delays due to IRL issues have pushed expected Winter update stuff towards Spring/Summer. Doing my best :)

The Spring Update will be for 2.7.2 of 1MB and still Minecraft 1.15.2, it's running live right now. But won't include 1.16.0, there's no final release date known at this point, the changes in the nether update are big enough that we will introduce a new world, new features, and gameplay, and restrictions. Meaning it will be justified to name it 2.7.3.

Update: June 2020

June 20th, 2020 is when we finalized version 1MB 2.7.2 for Spigot 1.15.2.
June 21st, 2020 is when we started version 1MB 2.7.3 for Spigot 1.15.2.
Summer 2020 is probably the period where we upgrade to version 1MB 2.8.x for Minecraft 1.16.x either through Spigot or Paper.

Internal version number is now 1MB 2.7.3

Update: July 2020

July 1st, 2020, last week Mojang released Minecraft version 1.16.x to the public. Since then version 1.16.1 has been released, and SpigotMC and PaperMC have released their version of 1.16.1. We've always been running Spigot and currently have been testing with Spigot 1.16.1 to convert player data, server worlds, plugins, etc. If we move to PaperMC in the future depends on many things.

We're leaving 1MB version 2.7.x behind us, replacing it with 1MB version 2.8 today. Focus is on backwards network support for 1.15.2 and mainly to run 1.16.1 and above smoothly.

Internal version is now 1MB 2.8.0, for Minecraft / Spigot 1.16.1

Update: July 2020

July 9th, 2020. We've updated to 1.16.1 and 1.16.2 is around the corner. We have run successfully for a week and get almost no bug reports that make me go "uh oh", this is the end of the grace-period. Nearly every plugin has been restored at this point. I have no interest anymore to roll back to 1.15.2, we're moving forward with our setup.

Internal version is now 1MB 2.8.1, for Minecraft / Spigot 1.16.1.

Update August 2020

August 25th, 2020. 1.16.2 is being worked on and we've updated all our plugins that work on both 1.16.1 and 1.16.2, so we're as ready as can be. We are waiting for a few bugs to get fixed before we jump in.

The version number increased of 1MB, because we've said by to old groups and are preparing to use the new groups.
We're nerfing first time players quite a lot, and new players. And then rewarding active regular players. Some can get a boosted group now. And we will introduce an exclusive club that only has a set amount of slots per year, and a slot can only be purchased through PayPal.

The version number is to basically end the Summer 2020 update and is all about 1.16.1 and 1.16.2 and all the plugin changes, and configuration changes we've done. We're going to slowly focus on the fall season next. And possibly switching to Paper, I still have my reasons not to do this.

Internal version is now 1MB 2.8.2, for Minecraft, running Spigot 1.16.1, ready for 1.16.2 any day now.
