This week has seen Mojang begin to heavily enforce their licence agreement, which has had a damaging knock-on effect on community servers including ours.
As you may know, we use donations here on the forum to help pay for our upkeep, with paying members receiving some perks in return for their generosity. As of this week, it has been made clear by Mojang that such perks are not allowed to be sold as per their Terms of Service. This includes everything from buying diamonds to a coloured name.
With this source of income dried up, it truly pains me to say, the Minecraft server simply cannot continue. I know this will come as a disappointment to many of you, and for that I apologise sincerely.
As a student, currently unemployed, it has always been hard for me to drum up the money to pay for the services I've provided, often dipping into what little I have to afford small upgrades along the way to improve things for you all.
