This is an article to give you an insight in what is happening behind the screens, and what I'm currently putting a lot of attention into. All of this is not yet written in stone and subject to change.

New Management Structure
One of the main problems in this project is the fact that decision making takes ages, and that most decisions pass through the Valars that each have their say, and needs the approval of the majority of these. Some decisions even need unanimous approval, and the moment when someone isn't online, or active, or someone doesn't agree, the process of decision taking can take up days, weeks, sometimes a decision is never taken. It also blocks much needed progress in some cases. The Valar rank also grew out of its confinements over time, getting more and more responsibilities, while it was unclear who was responsible for what, or who did what exactly.

Within the new upcoming structure, this will change back to how the Valar rank used to be in the...

Ladies and Gentlemen,

It is with a sad heart that I must announce my permanent departure from the project. It was a pleasure making middle earth a reality in Minecraft with you fine folks. Unfortunately I now have a demanding career and am unable to dedicate as much time as I would like to the server.

When I joined the server, I never thought we would make it out of Eriador - and here we are in Gondor. It's amazing how far we've come in 3.5 years. Keep building and having fun!

I asked Creedo if he would take my position as Head Build, and he accepted. You folks will be in good hands under his guidance.

Homie Out!

And we are back!
It has been a crazy few weeks since the Great Forums Crash, however, the forums are now running better than ever! And in case you did not notice, I am not, in fact, Bevs! So until further notice, the weekly announcement job is now mine to torment! Whether that is a good thing or bad thing, we will have to wait and find out! But until then, here is the update for the past few weeks and a highlight of what is to come! I am hoping to post these "MCME Times" every sunday morning when I wake up, so it will be like reading the sunday paper but better.

I just finished restoring the donation logs of the past donations, which were lost during the crash.
There were some users who haven't registered yet on the website, so I couldn't add their past donations immediately (I plan to go over the list again next month).

I am migrating the domain from different registrars, this means that the website can become unavailable for a few hours, giving an Access denied error. The site should be back up soon :)

I have all the information and transactions for the donations logs of the last three years. Though I will have to add them all manually back one by one. A major issue with this is that I lost around 20.000 user accounts with the crash, and not everyone who donated in the past has re-registered by now. An issue that arises is that I can't manually add a past donation to a user that doesn't exist in my userbase. As of now, I will go through the list and add the donations back for the people who donated in the past and have registered their account again.

Afterwards I will check periodically if these old users have registered their account again, and then I will add their past donations back as well. Luckily, prizes that were given out because you reached a threshold, are still in your possession.

If you have any more questions, you can always contact me.

A new style has been deployed on the website. It allows the user to chose from a set of preconfigured flavors, or allows the user to set the preferred colors. A new Adstyle will be added that suits the community better, it will feature dynamic background images from our best builds.

Users who don't like the new style, and prefer the normal default look of the forums, can change the style by browsing down on any page. If you see the button UI.X, that is the button that allows you to select a forum style.
