Most of you have noticed that there has been a recent cleanup of staff members. This was done to make room for some new staff members in the very near future.
First off, I would like to thank all of the current and former staff members for all of their hard work on the server. This server would not exist without hard working staff members and they do a great job keeping the server under control and helping out players. I really can't thank them enough.
There does come a time when staff members need to be moved back to their normal non-staff rank, though. This is usually due to them not having enough time to devote to the server. Being a staff member is a hard job and it really takes a lot of dedication in order to be successful. I understand that people can't spend 8 hours a day on a minecraft server, but I also understand that there is a ton of players who are extremely active and would love to get their chance at a staff position.
You are now able to protect non-lethal mobs from taking damage inside your world guard zones. However, the damage will only be blocked for people who are not added to your zone. You are able to protect any non-lethal mob that you choose. This can include horse, pig, sheep, villager, and all other non-lethal mobs that you can think of. You cannot just request all damage be blocked and you actually need to list out each animal that you want to protect individually.
The website has been updated to the latest version of Xenforo (our forum software) and we have also added a new style to the website. I'm still working on tweaking the style so it looks a little better.
Completely new style for the website.
Text editor has been completely redesigned in the new version of Xenforo.
Text editor allows you to drag and drop images into it so they can be uploaded onto the forum very easily.
Text editor will auto embed media from popular sites (example: if you post a YouTube link it will automatically embed the video so it can be played on the forum).
Website is now responsive which means it will adjust to fit small screens like cell phones and still look good on large displays.
New banners for certain users (staff, titans, and donators).
Ability to watch an entire forum instead of just posts inside that forum.
Many more improvements to make the website load faster and run smoother.
September 8th, 2013 we will be starting a weekly rotation to decide whether MCMMO PVP is off or on for that week. It will be evenly spread out per week and there will no longer be any voting. One week will be MCMMO PVP off and the next week will be MCMMO PVP on.
We are going to try something interesting during the next week here on MutinyCraft. Starting Friday, August 9th at around 9 PM there will be no MCMMO skills that work during PVP. This will last for approximately one week after which time we will return to MCMMO with PVP. After another week we will begin a weekly poll where the players get to choose which MCMMO type that want for the week.
This is all being done in order to satisfy the players who do not believe that MCMMO can be fair. Don't think of it as punishing players who have worked hard. If you are one of those players you still have the stats to show for it and your skills will remain effective on mobs even when it is disabled for PVP.
