Hey folks. I've been out for a while and some of my friends have been monitoring the server on and off. I have a list of you guys that I will be giving /kick /ban and /save-all powers as soon as possible.
I apologize for the delay. The main reason is that bukkit has not yet been released on a stable updated version. That will allow us the permissions and anti-hack capabilities that are needed.
I'm working on employing craftbukkit beta 1.4.2 R0.2 right now. It was just released.
One last thought. Bukkit is INDEED a mod... which sucks, but since we are still not ready to whitelist due to low player amounts, we need access to bukkit's global ban list. For the majority of players, they will never notice that the server is not a true vanilla server. The only people who will experience the plugins are the hackers :).
This is a good idea, and it was well - intentioned, but the combination of the spawn killer(s) and the ugly spawn area kindof puts it off for me. I also was killed by a flying player, and I'm sure he was hacking. But other than that, It is a wonderful sever and idea.
Oh, and if anyone wants to team up with me to try to finish the game, I would greatly appreciate it.
