As you know, most of our staff has been away for quite some time now. Since this past November, we've been working on a large LucentCraft overhaul. While working on this update is the main reason for my absence, I also left as I was feeling unappreciated and felt like my decisions were not respected by players. Regardless, I didn't expect anyone to stick around given the lack of active staff and kept the server up so those who wanted to still play could do so.

LordRyan and I will be away on vacation until July 30th. We will still have access to the forums and some in-game

We leave tomorrow (July 23rd) early in the morning and I will be packing and finishing up a few things people have
reported before I leave.
Our Summer Games Event will be starting on August 1st and will be active for the duration of August. Official event
details will be posted when we get back! Get hyppeeed.
I've also been going through all of our plugins and their messages in attempts to unify their appearance/format and fix
any typos they may have. That will be finished and live August 1st as well. We haven't forgotten about vote milestone rewards and updates to donator ranks either. We'll be working on those once we've got the event up and running.
