The Tech Team will be performing a lot of server work today, but hopefully most of it will be transparent to you, albeit there may be some more than noticeable lag spikes from time to time. Apart from installing a few plugin updates for 1.5.2, we will be working on our own core plugins in preparation for the release of the new starter zone.

Most notably we will be replacing our old PermissionsBukkit plugin with an in-house version - JCPermissions - which is more flexible and configurable. Furthermore, it provide essentials features that will help us reduce turnaround time of donor upgrades and will eventually support full automation of the process.

We are also installing a major upgrade to JCChat - our general purpose chat plugin. This update bridges the gap between JCChat and its eventual successor JCCommunity; but more on that later.

All features and functionality will remain the same and won't require you to do something a different way. We will announce any new features in a later post. We will exercise most of these updates on our test server, but in the long run the only true test is Veterancraft itself.

We plan on rolling out changes through a series of restarts during which we will install a subset of components and monitor their performance and behavior. We will try to give the customary 5-minute warning per restart, but it may be as short as a 1-minute warning or none at all.

Keep an eye on the MOTD in your Multi-player server display. If it says MAINTENANCE MODE it means that the server is not open to the public. For those of you that have modded clients with auto-connection scripts, it is in your best interest to disable them. Repeat attempts to connect during MAINTENANCE MODE may trigger an auto-ban.

We know that we can rely on our longer-term Vetronians to understand that this for the greater good of all and will exercise patience. For those of you who have just recently joined us, we ask that you do the same, but here are some guidelines:

  • If you find a problem please post details in the Support forum. If you need help in figuring out what is going on, ask a Moderator for help. However, if you do, please make sure to set aside the time to answer any questions that Moderators may pose. Please provide as much detail as possible to avoid having Moderators resort to a game of 20 Questions.
  • Don't spam chat with questions about what is being done. If there is a need for immediate feedback, we will ask the questions. Please refer to the forums and tweets for progress updates. We won't provide a blow-by-review, but when important information needs to be disseminated, that is were it will be.
  • If these interruptions cause your blood to boil, instill a sudden need for Xanax, or have you teetering on the edge of a full blown temper tantrum, please just log off and come back tomorrow, lest you find yourself on the business end of the Ban Hammer.
Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experiences of others, are also remarkable for their disinclination to do so. - D. Adams
