Hello, all! There will be changes in the ranking of Au70 Galaxy. If all goes will, this will be implemented in a week, 13 November 2017. A server restart will occur at that time. First, we are removing the moderator rank. Instead, when someone applies for Op they are placed on probation for approximately 2 weeks. The Admins and Owners will monitor this new op, providing suggestions for improvement. Any previously demoted Op is exempt from this probationary period. Second, we are adjusting the hour requirements. From the change, the requirements will read "Demonstrate devotion to the server." As a rule of thumb, staff should consider approximately 5 hours of time per rank (AKA 15 hours for engineer), but that is no longer a hard and fast rule. Third, we are retiring AdvBuilder. Everyone who is currently AdvBuilder will be demoted to the rank of Builder. Builder will have all of the features AdvBuilder. Builder should still not have a rank requirement. As always, if you have questions feel free to ask!
Hi, all! First of all, terribly sorry about the delay in this. A topic posted a year and a half ago with no further information isn't good for anyone, I apologize. I'm going to be better at development updates in the future. Believe it or not, this server isn't dead! It's just... had a few hiccups. I spent a ton of time configuring all of the permissions and then poof, laptop stolen and work gone (Backup your stuff everybody!). I've had to do a lot of rebuilding from the ground up and that's what's taken so long. Tentative beta is for the end of the year. I have yet to decide who will be in the beta, however; it will probably be people with high rank on Galaxy. The form of this server has taken a little change. It will still be CMP. Guests will join into a guest world just like Au70 Galaxy, it will be roughly the same size and layout. We will still configure rank-specific worlds. However; at a certain rank a plot on a superflat world will be granted. It will be 256x256 (just like current realms) and tied to a specific person. High-level building ranks will have permission to receive a second. Donators may receive another plot upon donating. I will also be looking into mini-games, as that would make a welcome diversion from CMP. I like Jake's idea. As for staff, Andromeda will have its own staff. Being Galaxy staff does not automagically grant you Andromeda staff. However, we will probably grandfather in staff from Galaxy so we have a staff base to start from. That's about it. Expect more frequent development information soon as I re-work what I've worked once before... P.S. Special shoutout to MrOnlineCoder who spent a ton of time building a lot of plugins for us to replicate Au70 Galaxy functionality.
Hello, All! It's been a bit quiet around here hm? Don't worry, that will be changing soon. I've been working behind the scenes to empower everything to run Au70 Andromeda without a hitch. One of the steps with that is a conversion of our shortlinks off of manual management into an automated process. As such, I am migrating au70.xyz behind CloudFlare and onto a new software. Which means all of the shortlinks won't work for the time being. I will comment on this thread when the migration is finished. Thanks, all! Sorry about the silence...
Hi, all! This is a formal downtime notification for Au70 Galaxy. I am going to remove a redundant disk on April 16 at 2200 UTC (Local time). This will result in a downtime of roughly thirty minutes. I will comment in this thread when the downtime is done. Thank you
Hi, all! Contrary to popular opinion, I am still alive and working on the Au70 Network. This is a formal downtime notification for au70.xyz, which is our shortlinks system. I am going to attempt to migrate it to the main hosting account on April 16 at 2100 UTC (Local time). This will result in a downtime of roughly an hour. I will comment in this thread when the transition is done. Thank you
