    Temporary DDoS Protection Enabled

    Christopher
    By Christopher,

    Hello Moosters,

     

    Just a quick update - You may start seeing this screen when trying to load the site:

     

    a341d205a1424d6ba3337a9.png

     

    Do not be alarmed - I have enabled CloudFlares DDoS protection because we have recently been getting attacked by some unknown perpetrator. I shouldn't have to keep it on for very long, just until the DDoS subsides.

     

    For those of you that don't know, a distributed denial of service attack (DDoS) occurs when multiple systems flood the bandwidth or resources of our webserver. This is the result of multiple compromised systems (for example a botnet) flooding our website with traffic. When our server is overloaded with connections, new connections can no longer be accepted. This is the cause for the website not loading earlier.

     

    Hopefully this attack will cease soon and the website can resume normal operations.

     

    Thanks for your time,

    -Christopher


    Shutting Down - Farewell!

    Christopher
    By Christopher,

    All of you all are extremely important to me, and it t has been a great run guys, and I have never been more honored than to say I hosted such an awesome group of

    People. You guys are like a second family to me. I haven't got to meet all of you, however, nonetheless you are all still very important to me. Please

    Remember that I am not doing this because I want to, but only because I have to.

    It pains me to say that due to recent financial issues, I will no longer be able to host the Minecraft Server, nor the Website. They are both already payed for up until March 1, sadly they are

    Likely to terminate and we will be shutting down come May. I don't have time to dedicate to this anymore, as it has become almost a second job.

    Frankly, school has taken quite a toll on me, and it's darn near impossible to shuffle all things at once. 

    Once things settle down in the future, maybe I can come back to the community and again offer my services, it's just at the current point in time it is just not possible.

    Once again, I just wanted to express how much fun and how big of a learning experience this has been for me. I

    Love you all and I will miss all of you greatly! Please don't be upset, it's not your fault - I just cant afford this project both time and money wise.

    So farewell, I love you guys!

    -Christopher

     

    Because I got so many messages and people fliping out, I thought I would go ahead and clarify this is a joke haha before someone goes and cries themselves to sleep O_O

    See the Highlighted Text above, each starting letter of each sentence :P

    Website Update

    Christopher
    By Christopher,

    Hello once again my fellow Moosters,
     
    Today I have added some more functionality to the website this includes:

    • Facebook and Twitter Login
    • New Main Page
    • Twitter Feed
    • Shoutbox

    Facebook and Twitter Login
    This function of the website allows you to sign in using your Facebook or Twitter account! It's very easy, so instead of having to type in your username and password each time you can simply connect this website to either Facebook, Twitter or BOTH. It's very nifty and allows for your Facebook or Twitter profile picture to be added as your avatar (if you so desire) :D
     
    Also, if you make a post on the forum, you have the option to share it to your Facebook and Twitter account if you want to!
     
    New Main Page
    I have updated the way the main page looks, it's much cleaner and offers a bunch more social networking options that we didn't have before. Now you can like posts and it will tell all your friends on facebook (which helps us grow!) and share it on many other websites with a single click of a button!
     
    Twitter Feed
    Due to some downtime I had with my servers today (I was unable to tell anybody because the website was down too!) I decided to add a @MoosterNetwork Twitter account that way you can stay connected with us even if the website and servers are down. This Twitter will keep you updated with the Moosters Networking staus, this includes updates to the website, server, downtime, etc. I even added a twitter feed on the main forum, bottom right hand side! Be sure to follow us on Twitter!
    http://www.Twitter.com/MoosterNetwork

     

    Shoutbox

    This is a "chatroom" like feature that allows users to talk to each other in real time. The advantage this has over the chatroom is you don't have to login to it. It simply displays your messages. If you want to talk more privately, use the chatroom or PM's
     
    Until next time!

    ANNOUNCEMENT OF SERVER STAFF & FACTIONS!!!

    MissMoonica
    By MissMoonica,

    I have seen a lot of confusion on the topic of server staff. I have removed everyone from staff positions because we had too many and I have plans to reorganize staff for the two different servers; SMP & Factions. I will choose the NEW staff out of the OLD staff, I just haven't decided who will go where, if all will stay in positions (because they have asked not to be for personal reasons), and what the position entitles. If I do decide to bring in someone new, it will be my decision of who and not by any voting or 'election' system. I will slowly start organizing the staff in the next few days. The faction server is technically set up, but since I will be in New Zealand until May 1st, I will not open it to the public until it is completely stable, I am home, and we have staff sorted out. I hope this clears a few things up! Moo's & Kisses!


    Main Server Updated

    Christopher
    By Christopher,

    I have updated to Minecraft 1.5 on the main server. Most of the plugins have released beta versions of their plugins so this server should be (semi) stable. There may be some bugs that need to be fixed as most of the plugins don't fully support Minecraft 1.5.

     

    Let me know if you experience any problems!

     

    Love,

    Christopher
