Super Noobs

Super Noobs is a Minecraft server community! Come play on Scarlet, our towny server!

You may have noticed our small period of downtime this morning. Please disregard this, as some jerk named Santa refused to pay the bill. I kept messaging him, but he just didn't pay up. But anyways, went to the bank this morning and put my latest paycheck in, so we good now! PLAY ON!
Greetings flock!
It's been far to long since I've last posted here, but here's what is going to happen in the next couple weeks and how it relates to the people of Minecraft! So lets get started!

The migration to something other than GriefPrevention has been long in the tooth. I think we've all seen bugs where TNT explosions cannot be toggled, and claims seem to do nothing to stop people from breaking in your area occasionally. We're pleased to announce formally that we're moving to Towny. Of course I've been saying this for a while now, but here's why. Towny provides community creation, chat management, and land management in one package. Making it an ideal candidate for this server. I'm predicting there will be a good amount of confusion, and anticipate teleporting to people to see them wildly swinging a gold shovel all over the place trying to claim. In order to mitigate some of this confusion, me and the fellow staff will attempt to educate our selves as much as possible in order to write a simple guide on how to get started, as well as help in-game with any issues that occur.

Another question you may be asking your self now is, well if Towny is so great, why haven't we been using it until now? The reason we haven't switched until now boils down to we didn't want to have people lose their houses. So why now? We're going to be regenerating the world along with changing to 1.7. Making it the opportune time to make the switch! And now you may be asking your self "Well Mr. Owner, what about all my diamonds?" and the correct response to that is, simply put your diamonds in a vault! It's that easy! How do you get a vault you ask? Ask an Admin! No admins on? Post a reply here! Remember, you need to have an account on the forums to qualify for a vault so get cracking!
Hey guys, just wanted to post a quick notice that I've decided to reward anyone who makes an account on the website with 1000 claim blocks. I figure that's a good way of ratting out people who don't really love this server, and it's a good way of rewarding all of you for your love! <3 :squirtle:
edit: Also I retroactively added claim blocks to those of you who already made an account. No worries :)
So, I like it when people are social, so, part of our plans moving forward will be more and tie-ins between the website and the game. You probably know of our efforts to provide plugin help and that reward, well take that and automate it. Part of the plan is to have forum ranks transferrable to in-game. Have trophies give you some diamonds or a special sword. Fun stuff moving ahead. And I hope you like it too.
OK. We've been DDOS'd. The server is going to be down for the next 3 hours, sorry for any inconvenience this has caused in your midnight Minecraft playing. Hell. I know it sure messed up mine! Perhaps we should play a text based version in the mean time? Oh well.
Why must your session servers always go down when I really need them in my life. It makes me sad inside. All of the great and noble adventures cannot be had on a sunny, bright day like this! I love playing video games when it's sunny outside! It's the best time to! Unfortunately your own popularity has gotten to you. And I'm terribly sorry about that. We shall have a talk! You must find the solution to this problem! It seems that your server system is built on the OpenStack API, however, your service constantly fails! Moar coding! You are the best. You can do it!
Edit: The dark Saturday has come to a close. There is the light of Minecraft in the sky now. Hurray!
Mojang has released a NEW Seecret Friday Update! What did they do!?!?!?!?
Greetings flock!
I'm here to bring you exciting new developments on the server! Since the last post Melon2007 has become a moderator, so congrats to Melon! At the time of writing this we're at 304 unique players that have joined the server, which is pretty damn exciting! We're expanding our plugins as well. You already know we've added PlotMe last week, but this week we've added PVP Arena. Currently we have one arena all setup and ready to go, so jump on and use "/pa verox join" on the server to hop into a match. I'll post details about the classes that Verox has in a later post. Did I mention that we have twelve classes for your choosing?
My goal is to be adding a requested plugin a week. Some plugins are smaller and need far less configuration and testing of permissions and may take less time. Next week it looks like people want Hunger Games the most, so I'll get cracking on it! In our queue of requested plugins we have skyblock/skygrid, Chest bank for 1.7 transition, and probably someone will request more!
Thanks for sticking through the server with us, I know many of you are going back to school and are far busier than the summer, so thanks!
We've done it! We added the plot world! The portal can be found in the spawn, and we already have a donator bonus implemented. But, it's time we finally give a monthly build off challenge and announce prizes! The September build is.... Sky scrapers! Build your best sky scraper by November 26th, and see it imported into the regular world!* If you need help with the plot world I'm sure someone online will be more than willing to help, if not, make a post in the plugins help forum.

Submissions will take place on the 27th on a special thread, followed by voting on the 28-29th. The winner will be decided on the 30th.

* If your skyscraper contains precious materials it will be in an admin claim or precious blocks will be replaced by winners request

See you online!
