    posted a message on Elmegaard's Minecraft Server [No Whitelist] [No Lag]

    An eerie shriek breaks the silence of a thousand dreams as the dirt starts to crumble and shake!
    A hand breaks the surface, grasping in thin air, trying to free the body that has been laying dormant and still for what seems like eons.


    Greetings to anyone still present on this forum!


    I must admit i haven't visited these forums for ages and ages and had long thought that Elme's was long gone and that only the fond memories remained!

    It would seem that i was somewhat right, but also glad to see that i was wrong and that the server until recently actually was still alive!
    When i received a message from Elme about this thread i was very surprised, but also excited. I think there is a part of me that never wants to see the server die and that i somehow think that it will come back in one form of another.


    I am also very glad to see so many familiar names still loyal and fond of the server that so many people spent countless hours on and called their home for so many years!
    This community is the only community that i have had such a close and solid relationship with for such an extended period of time!


    Nate, (the player formerly known as Eggo, as i will from now on still refer to as Eggo!) your memories are a great example of how great the server was and how closely knitted the community was, and in some sense still is.
    I think its amazing to think about that you now are 18 years old and have started on a path that might just have been inspired by our shenanigans on Elmes by studying engineering.
    This for me is the highest reward for being an admin on the server and devoting my time to ensure quality and stability for the players that called Elmes for home.


    Not many players remain from the golde age of pre-alpha and alpha from when Elme first started his server, but the ones that remain are still here because of the great times we had together and the adventures we made.

    I hope that most of you also have fond memories from your time on this amazing server.
    The time we spent together will forever be in my memories and i am thankful for each and every player (even the griefers and trolls) that came by and made it the special place it was!
    I have made some great friends on this server and met people that i came to love and adore for more then just the blocks and TNT!

    SkyCity, Ygdrasil, Wookie city, Parthenon, Bender, the Taj Mahal, Muhas maze, the floating city, the pirate boat, the miles and miles and miles of railways, and all the crazy redstone contraptions....
    The list of amazing builds that have been made (and destroyed) over the years is too long to list here, but some things are still fresh in my mind!
    Raise hands if you can remember the burning of SkyCity....!

    I guess im a bit sentimental when writing this, but that is ok because the time spent and the memories gained and friends made are simply unprecedented and impossible to put a price on!

    So in a sense i am sad to see that the server is going down, but all good things must come to an end!

    The amount of work, time and energy needed to maintain a server can overwhelm anyone and is not to be taken lightly!
    Many people have tried and most have failed one way or another, but we must recognize their attempts and efforts as to not let it all be in vain!

    Even if this server goes down for good this time, i will for ever have my memories and friends from a time when thins were blockier and filled with creepers and wonderful people.
    If by some sort of miracle and the server would get a (small) revamp i would love to come by and witness it and to play a game of nostalgia and sentimentality :)

    Finally, if you are still reading after all that sentimental stuff, i want to extend a personal expression of gratitude to everyone i crossed paths with over the years.
    You made my time on Elmes unforgettable!

    And last but no least i have to extend my greatest thanks and respects to the main man himself, the one and only Elmegaard!
    Your efforts, time and dedication is the foundation of everything and everyone on your server.
    Thanks to you we ha this wonderful time to lock back on and remember with fondness and happiness!
    Thanks for everything buddy, it has been an honor and a privilege to be an admin on your server!

    Hello people of Elme's... or whats left of you anyways :P

    Progress in restoring the server has halted for reasons still unknown to me.
    The things that need sorting are a bit tricky and needs the right people to be taken care of.

    There has also been some mess with permissions and communications have been affected also.
    It is true that we first had some challenges getting time in between work and school, but those issues should be mostly resolved now.
    However, there is still the issue with summer vacations and thus we still struggle with getting all hands on deck!

    I do hope the right people sees this soon and we can start working on getting the server back on track.
    I am really sorry for the inconvenience this has caused so many of you!

    I also want to thank Sparky for his time and effort he put into the server, his help has been most valuable! :)

    If you have any questions regarding the server or anything else, please send Elme or my self a PM and we will come back to you as soon as possible.

    Erador:
    Thanks to some great help from Ceryn we have restored 99.9 % of your place using logblock :)
    Not much should have changed and you should be able to resume your mining as soon as we fix the server :)

    Its most likely your playerfiles.
    Im on the horn with Elme now and we are talking about when we have some time to do the reinstall.

    The maps have been backed up so there is little to no risk of the map being deleted.
    There might be a slight rollback or two, but i guess that is better then a whipe :P

    Great job Sparky :)
    I have been googling some too and found similar results as you did.

    I think that the server crashing is related to our economy/shop plugins.

    We are in the works now with reinstalling the server, but since every admin except me is busy with schoolwork the progress is kinda slow.
    I hoping to hear from Magicul and Sierra soon :)

    Keep up the good work Sparky, its great to see such devotion to the server :Diamond: :Diamond: :Diamond:

    It could be because you at some point joined the server, then logged out where something has been constructed at that point at a later time.
    Or it could simply be bcause of a glitch/error in your playerfile.

    Does this present a problem for you, i.e loosing valuable inventory ?

    Im sorry to hear that you lost all your inventory.
    Not sure what happened, but Magicul was working on solving some crash issues with the server last night.
    Some plugins were giving out some weird errors and crashed the server again and again.

    We have to wait for Magicul to respond here to find out what happened.

    Erador: Send me a PM about your inventory.

    Epik: Your roof is probably a result in a small rollback in a plugin that went awoll!
    Send me PM about it.

    Server seem to be working smooth again :)

    Had a few players come up to me and asking where their house was, apparently they /home'ed into water or something :P

    I do love the new spawn and the spawn city, it looks great :D
    Also found some random nether-portals scattered about too :)

    It has been broken for the last few months. There's 'little time to work on the server' and then there's 'no time to work on the server'


    I get where you are coming from, and i do partly agree, but im an optimist regarding there matters ;)
    I'm sure if the right person gets the right tools that this will be sorted.

    Great to see you back in the game Sinn! The server will never die totally, as I will never stop hosting it. Unfortunately I don't have any time to maintain it myself anymore, which is why Sierra and Magicul currently have full server access - if I remember correctly.I am always reading all posts in this thread as I still care about the server. I would love to see it active again, but it seems like the current admins are busy with their lives too.


    I wouldnt say back in the game, but deffo interested to come back to the community ;)
    The problem with maintaining servers like this is the manpower!I remember the heydays when we had active admins online 24/7, it was still hard to keep things going smoothly!
    Life tends to come in the way for gaming and thats just how things are, we cant change that, nor should we.
    Both Sierra and Magicul are competent people, but as we age we get more responsibilities and content in our real lives that take priority from games and fun.
    I would personaly love to come back and admin the server, but i cant promisse enough time to devote to the task and therefore my contribution would be minimal at best.
    Besides, its summer in europe and that always means low-season for online gaming.

    Quote from Erador
    Well if there is no change by release of 1.8 I am going to classify this server as officially 'dead' and remove it from my bookmark.


    I think this is kinda harsh to state at this time.If the server is undergoing technical issues its not at fault because the playerbase who actually wants to play the game migrates to other servers that still work.
    I am sure that given some time the issues at hand will be sorted and we can all enjoy the game as its ment to be played.

    Are you still hosting the server from your own server Elme or is it external now ?Is it FTP access to the serverfiles ?
