Announcements for February


Good evening! A couple of announcements and reminders.

First, regarding supporters: Thank you to all who have already supported us. We have offset $391 out of $1650, totaling a 24% offset of our expenses to date. This means that we have offset all of our PieLayer (old VPS) payments, completely covering our first 9 months of being online. THANK YOU!! If you still want to support us, tomorrow is the last day to do so until Frumple heads off on vacation, during which time the supporter center will be closed.

Second: The administrators (not all staff) will hold an Administrative Staff Meeting (ASM) on Tuesday, February 4, 2014 at 6pm Central Standard Time. This will be a quick meeting of us three administrators, probably not much more than half an hour in length, where we’ll clear old warnings from early December, promote players to the Trusted rank, and discuss some of the changes we’ll be making to the rules when we perform our Multiverse Update. Nominations will open tomorrow (Friday, January 17) and will close two weeks later (Friday, January 31). Recipients will be announced the evening of Tuesday the 4th. As always, you can nominate players for the Trusted rank at http://dft.ba/-MRTNominate.

Third: We are currently testing Multiverse on our beta server. This will likely not be running while Frumple is away, but if you’d like to test it in the meantime, connect up to beta.minecartrapidtransit.net in your Minecraft client, and use the command /mv tp new to get to the new world. Use /mv tp mrt to get back. Please report any oddities to the administrators via email at the address admin+beta [at] minecartrapidtransit.net (the +beta allows our clients to flag the message).

Finally, a reminder that I, Thomas and ComputerGhost are in charge of the server while Frumple is away. Please email questions or concerns to the admin address as usual, as all four of us receive all the things sent to that address. I will be monitoring my inbox closely, so you can also shoot me a personal message (send it to the chiefbozx address) if you need a one-on-one answer.

Have a good weekend – and students, good luck on your second semester.
