I've updated the server to 12w22a and unbanned everyone who was banned for death in hardcore. Normally I would wait longer but with the new snapshot think it would be unfair not to unban everyone who died from death in hardcore. Users banned for...other reasons...will still be banned.
EDIT: I made a mistake when unbanning everyone. If you connect and you are still on the death screen please post here and I will fix it. I haven't time to go through the hundred or so player files to find which players are dead.
We've had some good activity on the server, no greifing so far. As soon as 1.3 comes out I will put up the map for download and start a new map. We haven't had many people die so far since the last unbanning, so it'll be a while yet before the next unbanning.
Protip: Mining ores and smelting things can jack your XP into the hundreds very quickly. XP is plentiful in this snapshot and the enchants are amazing! Seize the moment.
I've changed it to 10 slots now instead of 7. There was a recent disturbance where I had to forcefully shut off the computer the server was on, sorry for any inconvenience. Some changes may have been reverted, inventory reset, etc.
Greinf/stealing/killing is allowed. You greifed and stole from MY house, by the way. I'm quite angry but I never made it against the rules so you were within your rights to do that. I think I spawn-killed you when you logged back in because you weren't moving but you didn't drop any of my stuff. After that I was trying to see what damage you did and I fell in my own lava and burned to death. Guess it's the end of it for the both of us. I'm raging right now but trying to keep cool. As for putting stuff back, if you could, how would you put my cows back?
The map will be up for download and a new map will become available after the next snapshot/Minecraft 1.3 comes out. I won't be unbanning anyone else until the new map.
I updated the server to 12w23b and turned PvP off. I am aiming for this to be a collaborative effort this time rather than a fearful-hide-and-go-seek effort last time. The map has a new seed and is still Large Biomes. The map download from before will be uploaded some time or another, it's over 500 megabytes!!
That was pretty stupid. For whatever reason you decided to listen to some son of ***** kid and had me killed on purpose. I literally did nothing to you. I even complimented your server. I demand you unban at once.
