    Au70 Galaxy on Hold
    Well, this is a forum post I didn't want to make...
    A little backstory, I've actually been unemployed for about 6 months.  Because I love Au70 Galaxy, I've been paying for server hosting out of my dwindling savings account while I hunt for a job.  Unfortunately, I am no longer in a position to do that.  Therefore, I'm saddened to announce that Au70 Galaxy (and by extension, Au70 Nebula) will be put on hold at the end of the month. 
    What does that mean?  It means I will be temporarily shutting down the server that's hosing both Galaxy and Nebula.  No data will be lost.  When my situation improves, I will restore the server to the exact same state as it was before. 
    Again, this is temporary and no data will be lost. 
    If you have any questions, feel free to reply here.

    Server Introduction
    So, I've spent a ton of time offline working through server configuration for Au70 Andromeda, and a while ago I figured out I accidentally created a fully functional Survival Multiplayer Server... so I grabbed a copy of the plugins and built Au70 Nebula. 
    Au70 Nebula is ready for rough beta testing.  It is currently configured in a whitelist-only and runs on the same virtual machine as Au70 Galaxy.  If you would like to help me test and refine the server, reply to this topic.  Eligible people will hold at least ProBuilder on Au70 Galaxy and own Minecraft (I haven't been able to configure it for cracked clients yet).
    As for Au70 Andromeda, I'm still in progress.  It's a venerable soup of plugins right now, and I've been chasing some very weird interactions...

    Bot and Discord Relay downtime: May 1 2018
    Everyone,
    The server hosting the Discord relay and IRC Bot is going down for maintenance on May 1, 2018 at 1300 UTC (local time)
    I have no choice, this is being forced by the hosting due to the Spectre vulnerability.

    Au70 Galaxy Rank Changes
    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!

  14. Padawan00123 added a post in a topic The beginnings of a new server   

    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.

    It's our shortlinks host.  So for example http://au70.xyz/ban is a link to our ban information page.

    au70.xyz Migration
    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...

    This downtime is now complete.  While the domain is not migrated yet, the system is set up to be migrated.  I will schedule another downtime to complete the migration.

    Au70 Galaxy Downtime
    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

    au70.xyz Downtime
    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

    Amendment: ClassiCube is behind CloudFlare, so it's also a good idea to change your password there.

    CloudBleed
    Hi, everyone.
    It's time for a bit of serious discussion...
    Last Thursday, I received an email from ClodFlare, detailing a possible bug that could cause private information to be leaked on their service.  We use CloudFlare to protect this blog from DDoS attacks and popularity spikes. 
    Because of the relatively low number of affected requests and because I haven't received any word that we're directly affected, I'm not forcing password resets at this time.  But it's a good idea to reset your password on the forums.
    Since Au70 Galaxy and Esper are not behind CloudFlare, those passwords are not vulnerable.
    Also, for everyone who uses Discord, it is vulnerable.  You might want to change your password there: More info

    A wild Pad appears
    Hi, all!
    Apologies about the silence over the last few weeks.  I've had a couple of personal issues come up, which means I haven't been around nearly as much as I have wanted to.
    Don't worry, I will have more time now.  If you've tried to contact me, via IRC or the forums, rest assured I'll reply to your message within a day here.
    Our CMP server is also going quite well, thanks to the tremendous help of MrOnlineCoder.  I also have a few more things in the works, such as improved IRC bot (that can play games!). 
    Sorry again, I promise to be around more.
