    Hi, all:

    Welcome back to the re-re-re-re-designed forum! Hope you enjoy the new layout. As usual, report all bugs and other issues in the right section.

    As for our MC server, there's currently a HUGE shitstorm surrounding the legality of Bukkit, Craftbukkit, and all of its subsidiary software. Read more here:

    DMCA notice issued by a coder regarding mixing of GPL and LGPL codes: http://dl.bukkit.org/dmca/notification.txt

    Mojang response: http://forums.bukkit.org/threads/mojang-and-the-bukkit-project.309715/

    What does this mean? Until the DMCA is lifted, all future MC updates will be unsupported unless Mojang either 1. completely open-sources the Bukkit project or 2. eminent-domain or 3. rewrite from scratch. How long will this take? Who gives a f---.

    So until then, DINO-D-DAY HERE WE COME!

    Edit: entire team resigns: http://forums.bukkit.org/threads/an-independent-goodbye.310086/

    Mojang can issue a counter-DMCA notice notice and have the items restored. If that's the case, it's up to Wolf to decide whether he actually wants to take this issue to court. If he does, Mojang will lose.

    Also, I fixed the forum list so the display's nice again. I should now make it that every time you refresh a different background shows.

    Absolutely disgusting. Also, there's a successor for Bukkit: www.spongepowered.com.

    Spigot is also giving them the middle finger by basically giving everyone a compiler to compile a 1.8 compatible server software so they aren't accused of illegally distributing current versions.

    Lastly, the current list of servers and other stuff are located here: http://mmpr.org/faq/

    You're right. Game's pretty shit and despite all of my efforts in trying to launch the game and play it, I just couldn't keep up.
