Extended Server Maintenance June 16th.

by Colbydude | May 28th 8:29 PM


Hey all. Letting you guys know that the site will go down June 16th at 12:00 PM PST for extended maintenance.

"But why?" you may ask. Well, let me tell you.

We'll be moving the site to a new (less expensive, yet more powerful, and cloud-based) server. Also, the site has been rebuilt from the ground up, leveraging the Laravel PHP framework, for more security, more features, scalability, and easier development for future additions. I don't want to spoil some of the new features, as they may not be ready when it comes time for maintenance (a lot is going on right now). At the very least, the site will be back up and running with (almost) everything it has now.

I'm not sure how long exactly it will take to move and migrate everything over, so I'm just going to put a tentative ETA of two to three days. It will definitely be back up by the following weekend. However, due to all the changes and future plans, the forum will go down for an indefinite amount of time. Other systems will be put up in place of the forum so communication across the community doesn't suffer a terrible amount.

Welp, that's it for now. I'll be making a follow-up post in the coming weeks detailing more about what's happening and the growth of VoidTeam as a whole (some really exciting things are coming!). So keep an eye out!

Secret Santa

Listen up VoidTeam, Santa needs help.

Production has run low at the North Pole, so it looks like there won't be enough presents on VoidTeam to spread the Christmas cheer! In order to ensure all of VoidTeam gets something for Christmas (whether naughty or nice), Santa is hiring "Secret Santas" to make sure this Christmas is the best Christmas.

If you would like to be a "Secret Santa," reply to this thread with your best Christmas cheer! Santa will be sure to hear your call to duty, and assign you a needy VoidTeamer.

Christmas wishes,

Bukkit is dying. Microsoft is taking over. The world is ending.

Well.... Right now the future of Minecraft is very unclear and has been for a few weeks now. If you haven't heard already, Microsoft has bought Mojang (The company behind Minecraft) and Notch is no longer involved with anything the company does. I am staying positive about this acquisition especially because of previous frustrations we have had with Mojang regarding their Mod API, slow time-frame, and lack of good server support. We will see what Microsoft brings to the table.

Very shortly before this acquisition, all downloads of Bukkit were removed from the internet in every location they were previously available (Spigot, GitHub, Bukkit.org) because of a copyright takedown request by an old Bukkit developer. Both sides of this issue claim they are in the right, which sadly means it will probably take a long time to become resolved and with the recent acquisition of Mojang (owners of Bukkit) by Microsoft, Bukkit could quite possibly die. At the moment, my predictions about the future of the Bukkit are not so bright. I do, however, think that Spigot could rise up and take over. If you are interested follow the news at http://spigotmc.org

With all that said, what does this mean for VoidTeam? Well that's an excellent question and I have no clue what the answer is. For now it means we will allow 1.7 and 1.8 clients to login to the server, but any 1.8 items will not work since the server-side will still technically be 1.7. Please feel free to provide any input or suggestions about our future. Thanks guys!

BUT... For now.... Here's a picture of a taco....
