Seeing this makes me think i should make a post of my own.
Its been a few months since I've actively played Minecraft and frankly I've been enjoying myself more, but there will always be things I will remember. I owe so much to Lockdown. I will always remember the friends I made on this server, the times I stayed up all night just to make guard hours. The hours of talking to people in skype and teamspeak. I will even miss the constant drama of the server and its problems with others.
Lockdown was my home for over 2 years and its changed so much. I can still remember when i first logged onto the server from citibuild, back when it was popular, and not having a clue what was going on. At that point I had just started playing Minecraft and I had only been playing on servers for 2 days. When I first came in I went to the staff room and saw the NPCs with the admin skins and i thought they were actual staff so I publicly thanked them in chat and when I took the tour guide with the private text and the NPC MSV I thought it was the coolest thing that the actual owner of this awesome place was touring me, of all people, around.
I've grown so much from then. I made friends. I made enemies. I even made friends out of my enemies, Shocknate :wub:. I will continue to grow but I think I will do it without the help from Lockdown from now own. This has been a great 2 years, and I thank you so much for that.
Do not think this is a permanent goodbye (seeing how doodle is my cousin she will probably drag me back on at some point.) But this is an end to an era for me, and I will truly miss it.
To all my friends, my skype is always open and I finally have a Steam account that I might use (my account name is 3632, feel free to friend me.) I will miss you all.
Goodbye Lockdown and good luck with your endeavors.
All the cool kids are doing one so I'll just do one as well.
Lockdown Prison is the best thing that has happened to my 'gaming life'. I still remember the time I found out about it; my friend's brother was on a block party at a sleepover, and I was bugging him for about an hour to give me the server's address. When I got on, it took me a long time to rank up, as I had no idea what I was doing. I get a rush of nostalgia every time I think about the old days (100+ people on).
Unfortunately, all things must pass. You can't say it's lockdown's fault; a bunch of prison servers are dying, because the minecraft fanbase is becoming mostly 9 year olds who just go to their favourite youtuber's favourite server. I cannot thank MsVerita enough for creating and upholding such a great community; even in the darkest times, you're still there, making sure everyone's alright.
And thank you to the wonderful community. Shoutout to doodlecatt, Catsy, 3632, spaztix(wherever you are now xD) and Th3C0ld for becoming my first great friends on the server. It's been a great experience, and it's a shame others will not be able to enjoy Lockdown Prison to the extent of when we were a very popular server.
You can contact me via steam: lithanium_. I'm normally online. Cya

I figured I should make a post, even though this is not necessarily goodbye from me,
I myself haven't been playing minecraft and video games in general very often these days. I have started to focus more on music and school. I have to admit that maybe I didn't do as well as I could in school during the high time of Lockdown, but I think it was worth it.
Lockdown has been amazing for me. It has truly changed my life. Hehe, I remember my first day on the server as well. It was my first server and first day of Minecraft. I was such a nub, but I have grown so much since then.
I remember countless nights of me staying up till the wee hours of the morning playing my favorite server. I also remember me wriggling in my chair all day at school, so excited to come home and play Lockdown. Lockdown Prison was the only server I have ever gotten so attached to.
I like to say I grew up here because Lockdown has taught me so much. I made amazing friends here and I am so thankful to have been a part of this community. I can not thank MsVerita and the community as a whole enough for Lockdown.
I will never forget Lockdown and the people that were part of it.
I'd like to personally thank the following people for my amazing experience on Lockdown:
MsVerita: You have put countless hours into this server and I can't thank you enough for that.
3632: You brought me to this wonderful community. I can not thank you enough for that
Jakemarket: You were one of my first (and best) friends here and I hope that we will stay friends. I remember the day when you messaged me "nice skin" x3
Catsy2112: One of my first friends here; I'm lucky to have been friends with you
Rsgelhar: We hated each other for a while but in the end we turned out to be pretty good friends
DaPieHD (Captain_Dory but I still think of you as DaPie): You and I didn't get along at first, but then we became good friends x3 I still remember you, moodles and I playing tag at 4 am (my time). :3
Moodles930: Hehe, you and I were both nubs at the beginning but we figured it out together.
Commander_13: We had our fun times with each other and I'd like to thank you for that
Col2543: Well, Col, stop crying XD You were, and still are a good friend
Birdhouses: You were really funny and a good friend
Gogogoogle: You were also one of my first friends here. Hehe, the way we became friends was kind of funny x3
Echokitty06: Echo, oh echo, the chances of you reading this are slim, but I'd like to thank you even if you won't read this. Thank you, Echo, for being an amazing robo kitty.
Rabid_Italian: Haven't talked to you in a while but you were a good friend
_LordXenu_: Lord of Bagels! Thank you for being a great friend
Thtgirl: My PikaCatt! Thank you for being a great friend
Runz__(AKA SunflowerGlen): You, Runz, were very funny and I am so happy that you still message me on Skype from time to time x3
Minecraftkid4651: Two words: Pillow Pets...XD
Koli6: Oh, Koli, you were so funny x3
Revwen: Hehe, you, Moodles, and I had some good times together.
People say that you can't make real friends on the Internet, but I think Lockdown proves that wrong. Lockdown was the friendliest and most amazing community I have ever been a part of.
I am still around if you want to talk. Feel free to add me on skype: doublep212 or steam: |EO| Doodle
I am usually on Skype or Steam if you'd like to shoot me a message.
Well, thank you everyone for all the great things you've brought to me on Lockdown Prison. It all started with me joining and Doom taking me in and helping me through the several ranks. Hard to believe, but at one point, I was a higher rank than sammy. It's been a long time with all you fellow prisoners on Lockdown Prison, and I'll miss every single one of you. I'd also like to thank MsV for all the hard work she put into everything, creating a phenomenal server for all of us, helping us with everything, and supplying our needs of block parties and events. Most of my greatest friends on Minecraft have come from Lockdown, and I don't want to ignore you guys. I'll be active on Skype, so just send me a message. Doodle is right about people saying you aren't able to make friends over the Internet, but I have certainly made friends on Lockdown from all around the world. The one who's helped me through everything though, letting me organize his cell, and become a leader of Chip is aljen.
Aljencreater: Where do I start alj, we've been friends for a long time now. Well, I remember when I first invited you to Elite after you resigned from guard. Then there was the cell, and you trusted me with it. You definitely got to leader pretty quickly in Elite, and then got guard again. Although, you being guard, and me trolling around with you were my best times on LDP. you also helped me realize I was terrible at PvP (getting better), I was just used to the lag in courtyard. Our beast grinder got us so many sets of armor and we eventually earned about 9 sets of donor armor together. Then the rest came, and I was highly against it, but we survived together, even if I'm not the highest ranked player now. Thanks for everything alj. I'll miss playing Lockdown Prison with you. (I'll talk on Skype ;))
Iwantmedalssmp: I know you didn't stay and play on Lockdown Prison for long, but you were certainly the best businessman I've ever met on any server. From getting money in no time, (which literally had the admins ban you for duping), to helping me rank up. After the reset, we both had a ton amount of money, and it was hard to convince the wardens to give it back. You also showed me the many designs and best ways to make a grinder. Without you, al and I wouldn't have had so much armor. Thanks for everything iwant.
Doomboombar: Doom, you've started it from the beginning. We created several clans, **** talked big clans like wTuC and Ninja, and continue to this day, mess around and help each other out. Thanks for taking me in at the beginning, it meant a lot. #God #SnowPlots
gift4mybro: We joined at the same time. We helped each other rank up. We have a lot in common. We have been friends for a long time. I'll miss being at your side gift.
MsVerita: Thank you for starting up such a great portion of my life. Without you, I would've never made as many friends as I've made now. you put extremely hard work into everything about LDP, and I'll congratulate you on making Lockdown my #1 server in all of Minecraft. Thanks MsV.
Rsgelhar: Gelly! Remember t hat time we built the event room, with lava and water. Thanks for making my experience on Lockdown a lot more fun.
MustangFreak: Me and Doom's pagoda, *your pagoda will definitely be remembered. Great luck with yourself and your family.
Wild_3D: That one Maintenance member who introduced me to WebDrop. <3
Doodlecatt: Thank you, doodle, for always being there when I have a question or need help. Also, congrats on making Nubs the largest clan that ever lived.
Sammyb99: Sammy, thanks for everything you've done for me. You helped Doom, iwant, alj, and I with everything, You encouraged me to stay and play the new server, thanks for that and everything else. !Best Warden Will Not Be Forgotten!
01baseball01: You've always been a great friend base, from getting guard to becoming a warden. You survived the terrible lag that haunted you.
Ajrollers: Aj, from being a guard to one of the greatest friends in Minecraft, I want to thank you for everything you've done for me on LDP, and other servers now.
SunflowerGlen: Glenzzies. I'll miss always having fun and fooling around with you. Also, I'll still have to get you those flowers of yours, it's been great playing with you Glen.
Merajur: It's sad that you've left LDP as a Warden, but you'll continue to stay put in my memory. Thanks for all you've done Mera.
Wolftailz: Greatest guard pvper to one of the greatest wardens on Lockdown. Great luck with life and college bro. I'll miss playing with you, thanks.
Willthefluteboy: We never always got along Will, but I think you've brought some amazing aspects to Lockdown, and I won't forget that. Even if we have had disagreements, thanks for everything you've done for me and Lockdown.
Viciouss: One of the greatest developers ever. I only knew you because of your lovely house on the old survival server, I thought it looked amazing. Great job with everything you've created for Lockdown.
ShockNate: Well, we started as pals and you were there for me at most times. Not wanting to end on a bad note, thanks for some fun times together.
commander13: I never understood your love for cheese, but I guess that's something you love. Just like me loving to play with you. Thanks for everything you've done for me commander.
Swe776: Swe, thanks for all the good times together. It started with us getting married on LDP and playing on that faction server with the gigantic nether wart farm. Sadly, then our love for each other ended, not for long though. I had your bones for the longest time, kept them in my potato factory. Then, it all ended with you helping me get to the highest rank, with sending me over 20 million in game cash. Have fun in life and keep it real mate, **** that's not Swedish.
Well, this officially announces my departure from Lockdown. Once again, thank you to everyone who helped me with anything on Lockdown Prison. I don't think I'll ever forget anyone from the community, even if we had disputes at unnecessary times. If I hadn't mentioned you, don't take that as a bad thing. I love each and every one of you. Stay classy Lockdown prisoners. Maybe we'll all be reintroduced to the server some day. <3 <3 <3 <3 <3
-RyanTQ123, zChipmunk_, Daxzilla, and some more that will stay hidden.
I'm sorry about everything I did on lockdown in the past, I had no right to spam LD, or do any of the things I did do, and I'm sorry, It was very immature of me. To Deviin: I'm sorry about all the things I said to you before I got banned, It was uncalled for, and you didn't deserve anything I said to you. You are a great guy, and I was just really butt hurt that I didn't get mod. I don't really expect you to accept this apology if you're even reading this, but I just wanted to let you know that I was sorry. To everyone: If I said rude things to you, or anything to you that might've upset you, I'm sorry, I was very immature at that point in my life, I had no idea that the things I said could actually hurt people, and I'm sorry, I hope that we can meet up again some day. -Love Emma
this is the first screenshot I took on Lockdown <3 the memories are real

im never ever leaveing ldp . ldp is love .ldp is life . #LockDownPrisonForever
As I still hold place #1 on ontime top, I guess I should make a post. Mine isn't really a goodbye one, as if I ever see a couple people online, I'll sure as hell go on. Until then, quiet chats sort-of depress me, so I won't really be on. LDP has gotten me a lot of great friends, which I am thankful for. Sorry to the people who remember nubby-kid-using-brother's-account-with-his-skin me. I was annoying for the first half of my LDP experience, so thanks to those of you who would put up with me (and those who still continue to). If we ever become active again, tell Katt to pass the message along to me, as I'm very inactive on the forums and it was a stroke of luck that I remembered the login details to this.
So thanks to the mods who would continually warn me as a nub, with me avoiding mutes until the later half.
Thanks to the guards I would hide behind when we had that little bottleneck entrance to PVP.
Thanks to the admins who were forced to put up with me.
Thanks to MsV (and later on Jookes) for running a great server.
Thanks to the community for, most of the time, being amazing.
Well, I guess the time has come for me to make the announcement. I've been sitting here watching everything you guys have to say and before I go on I'd like to say how much I love each and every one of you that I have had the chance to know over the past 2 1/2 years. I never thought that Lockdown would be special to so many people including myself. We grew from this little nothing server to something that affected so many people and allowed me to get to know an amazing group of people that I wouldn't have had to chance to otherwise. I wouldn't take anything over what I've experienced with you guys. The support all of you have shown to the server and myself is unmeasurable. I've had the opportunity to share some of the best times of my life with all of you.
Now, let's get on to what I've been putting off for the past few weeks. Lockdown will be closing. Not in the way most of you are thinking though. Lately there has been talk between me and a few other people and we've decided to merge lockdown into an upcoming network. So, basically the server that most of you know will be closing but Jookes, the staff, admins, and myself will be joining with another team to open a full network. The network will be opening in December. It will have a prison server as well. (Of course). We will not be using the map Lockdown currently uses, and no you can not have a copy of the map. Items/Money/Ranks will not be transferring. However, all previous Lockdown donators will have a donation rank on the network if you choose to join. You're more than welcome to keep track of the opening date here: https://www.nyxcraft.net/
In a few days/weeks this forum will be locked and staff/admin Skype chats will be shut down. I'm more than willing to keep a skype chat available if you would like to join. Just private message me and let me know if you're interested. The teamspeak will remain online. I have no reason or want to close it as of now. Once the network opens, the lockdownprison.com IP address will be forwarded to the network instead of the original server.
Every good thing has to come to an end sometime. Although, this really isn't an ending for us. It's the start of something else and I truly hope that all of you will come with us for the next step. I care about you guys more than you'll ever know. If you'd like my Skype/Steam whatever just private message me and I'll provide it to you. If you have any specific questions about the upcoming changes feel free to ask and I'll do my best to answer them.
