Edit 2: Well we're up and running for now. I'm having trouble finding all the broken things myself, so I'll need you all to post the broken stuff you find so I can fix it. I don't think McMMO is working right now but that's gonna be a bit before I can fix it. Let me know anything else you find. Thanks!
I'm working on the server right now and it's already not going smoothly...gonna be a bit lol
First of all, I have no idea!
I just want to update you all on what's up with the server. I've been doing a lot of reading and planning for the 1.9 update. The only thing that's for sure is things are going to be broken. I'm not exactly sure what yet, but the server is going to be a different place once we are on 1.9. I am not planning a world reset, the world should stay intact. It's the plugins we use that may not transition over to nicely (McMMO, Factions, VIP Commands, Secret Switches, Disguises, etc).
I am hoping to update us by this weekend (April/3/16). I am finishing up at school (my master's degree) and I have been extremely busy with a lot of homework, writing, lab work, and training new students. When I have a few free hours I'm going to update us and work on getting as much as possible working.
This will be fun! It'll be different and scary and new and exciting, but overall we should have fun with whatever changes happen and learning how to deal with a slightly different environment.
