    For 1.8 we will be aiming for simplicity. There are several large plugins that while fun in practice, became unused and unnecessary.

    To be removed (other plugins still being reviewed):
    • Economy (Shops, Baron Bucks, pay-per-use commands)
    • Pets
    • Emerald Tools
    Economy's are just too incredibly difficult and flawed to implement into Minecraft. Instead, we will continue to use our Kudos points system. Kudos are points given out to players from staff if they see a player doing a good deed or contributing to the community by some means. Spending Kudos will give you permanent access to special non-game-changing tools or commands. The system still needs a lot of tweaking.

    /home will be free. I will look into multiple /homes, but that will likely be a Kudos package.

    I think we should keep the emerald tools plugin, I liked that it gave them a better use

    Yeah, I agree, I use Emerald tools much more than I think I should.

    Pets was a goofy plugin, I won't miss that. The economy plugin was neat, but it was difficult to use.

    In my opinion, the only good thing about pets was having an animal to simply be yours. If there could be a plug-in where you can simply rename an animal and have it follow you, nothing else, I would like it VERY much.

    I'll look into that, seems reasonable.

    Yeah, and I think it would be in our best interests to have only passive animals be kept as pets, without any crazy fighting abilities. Just a name tag or something and perhaps a small storage compartment if possible, like only 3 slots.

    If the server was up, maybe people would play on it. I'm not gonna ask brad to turn it on for only me to get on, then get bored and get off.

    1.8 will be up when it's out. We aren't really Minecraft focused any more, just general gaming. Forums in general for most communities are pretty dead, it's an obsolete platform. This place is mostly for news.

    If you want to play 1.7.x just let me know and I can start it up at any time.

    If by "handle," you mean name, then Wingdude100.
