Server to close...
« on: May 13, 2015, 02:13:01 pm »
Afternoon All,

Well I've been running it for 2.5 years now but it seems now we've all moved on to other games and interests so nowadays the server has nobody but Artela & the 2 US guys login to it (the map hasnt updated for 2 weeks either as is buggered I think).

As a result I think its probably time I took it offline and so have provided the map to Artela etc so they can run it on there own server unless anyone else feels we should keep it running?

Otherwise it's been a pleasure running it (it's taught me a hell of alot of backend server stuff) and the I'll make the final archive for anyone to download if they want it.

Will probably shut it down over the weekend if no one feels we should keep it.

Can I have the map too?

I sadly don't have much time to spend on it, but I'd definitely like to maintain a map for the future.

To be fair I've not played on it for about 5 months.

I've logged in now and then, hoped I might get back into playing. Unfortunately I'm much more interested in the survival aspect and team play which kinda vanished.

Thank you for running it this long, you've given us all a lot of enjoyment.

I'm doing some server stuff at uni next term, so plan to build a server over the holidays to learn the ins and outs. I might set something up to learn how to do it all. Maybe get some Sunday games set up or something like that.

As one last favour, can you keep it going until I confirm we're up and running on our own server? It's been brilliant, but without more people on the server it gets dull :(

Artela goes without saying am happy to keep it up till your ready.

The final map and Archive I will upload also once we stop so others can use it.

And it goes without saying the hardware is still here so we can always restart anytime anyone fancies it

Guys, we have had some truly amazing times on the server, I will miss it deeply, but I will remember the eventful moments I have shared with you all whilst playing.

Bask, you have done a fantastic job running the server and handling the internal issues we've had in the past, I applaud you for that man. You made the eUK Minecraft Server a warming and friendly place for the eUK community and whilst I may be sad to hear about your decision to cease running the server, I thank you for doing it for this long, giving us all the opportunity to create memories together, and to build friendships.

ALL HAIL BASK! \o/

Guys,

Just to be clear on this, IF you still want this running I have NO issues in keeping it running, I only suggested shutting it down as simply no one was using it! Ha Ha

IF you want it left on just say so and I'll leave it as such, it doesn't bother me at all and is always fun keeping it ticking over.

new map usually helps renew interest

Tbh, all the maps got loads of interest but then tapered off and then we did something new.

If there is still interest, maybe we should think up an alternative to Basks server where we can try something new.

I think the level of response that turning off the server has made is a tribute to how long the community is probably going to hang about for.

Doubt I can do much at the moment on mc but would certainly be up for creating a new map again, focused more on teamwork perhaps :3
<Guitah> not arguing with a Brit about tea is tha sensible thing to do :)
<Appleby> it is common knowledge it is pointless arguing with an addict :p
<Appleby> thus it is pointless arguing about tea with brits
