New mods, reducing entitys, and cleaning the map.
Attention Server!!!::: Can everyone do me a favor and delete any excess structures that you don't need or that you think are ugly, if you want to keep them because they look cool even if you don't use them that is fine with me, I'm just talking about excess crap that you really don't need, let's tear it down. I'll even do it for you if you see me in game just drag me over and I'll yank it down. Also I bring this up every few months but if you could keep all your builds in the same area that would be amazing, if you need things moved to your area let me know. It's very hard for the moderators to monitor the map and keep everything clean when one person has a building every 500 blocks. Also can you please put your name on your builds.
Entity Problem: We recently ran a program on the server that monitors trouble or potential problems we may run into. We are way over the healthy amount of entitys. You could help us fix this problem by removing or deleting your excess entitys. If you are wondering what an entity is just go with this rule: An Entity is anything that is more then just an image. Some entitys produce more lag then others obviously but they all do damage to the server in large amounts. If you have questions about what an entity is just ask in the server general chat.
Moderators: For the last 2 days I haven't seen any moderators do more then casually check in on the server (except Mike, he is very active). That is super not cool, the server needs active moderators who are willing to help people, if you can't do that then ask me to demote you, if you leave on your own terms then I will more then happily re-promote you in the future when you are ready for mod again. Either way the server needs new, active mods, who are ready to help so a few of you will be demoted today, it doesn't mean you were bad mods it just means you weren't active enough so you ARE eligible for re-promotion. Also the rank moderator does not mean you have free reign to use the server as your world edit playground, in fact it's the opposite of that. Do that shit in single player. Also if you are a mod and you have spots claimed all over the server and overly large giant area, you need to come on the server today or tomorrow and reduce the size of your area. The players need somewhere to PLAY. So if you are using up too much space, come on and fix it, reduce the space you are using, reduce the amount of entitys you have, and if you could put a very clear cut wall around your MODESTLY sized area, if you don't do it then I will be doing it for you.
Besides that I just want to thank everyone, Staff, Builders, etc for being a part of our wonderful server. This place has treated us well for a long time and it is the community that keeps this place awesome. So many times I have laughed so hard I almost fell out of my chair from conversations in the server chat and the teamspeak. I'm looking forward to more of that. If you want to be a part of the staff we need you, be a good person, read the "how to get staff" book located in town hall and get yourself promoted. MVGA Make Valhalla Great Again.
