The Mineplex 2023 GRAVEYARD-WIP

Discussion in 'Server Discussion' started by BlazeFire, Jan 19, 2023.

  1. An air of uncertainty and bleakness hung over the server going into its tenth year, and just a few weeks in, things are already taking a major turn for the worse. The server's core components are falling like dominos, and the only question on everyone's mind is-what's next? Well, I can't answer that, I'm not one of the owners. But I can document everything that's happened so far (and I may cover any upsides too), and that's the point of this thread. Every time something disappears or goes wrong on the server this year (or perhaps when something goes right as well), I'll record it right here as a reference for all of you (and hopefully not end up breaking necroposting rules while I'm at it). And please, help fill me in down below when anyone in a major position leaves (for any reason), or something is removed or shut down. I can't hope to keep track of everything myself.

    29th-A MIRACLE-Alex and Morgan, PURELY OUT OF LOVE FOR THE SERVER, Switch the Server's API From Bungee to Velocity to Mitigate the DDOS Plague (Who would have seen that coming?)

    1st-Admin Flaym Resigned

  5. Dw dude mineplex will shut down before you can get punished for necro posting on this.

  6. Yeah, that was on my mind, which is why I clarified this was a reference source and not Mineplex slander.

    What day?

  8. I came back to the forums out of boredom to see where the server has gone. This is incredibly depressing to see. It'll be lucky this server lives to 2024.

  10. Em's contract was also terminated recently, that's why she left, might wanna add that like you did for Timmi. It'll be interesting to see how many more bad things happen by the end of the month... I hear some stuff might be stirring around SM...

  12. That isn’t why she left. Now I’m not gonna say why she left because it’s not my place, but it wasn’t that

  13. I dislike the ownership team as much as most of everyone here, but I'd refrain from making rumours over specific Admins. They're already burdened enough from the decisions of LT as it is

  14. Where did you hear the server is shutting down? EXACTLY FROM NO ONE except NON OWNERS. Unless it is from an OWNER it's not official as stated by many staff. Sure people getting demoted or leaving are "signs" of MAYBE something bad is happening but that is only signs

    I personally believe Mineplex is at a good state changing up it's management I won't say to much of my thoughts but I did have problems with a few of these staff members and now this change is coming new management = excitement to see what comes!

  15. oh hell nah

  16. It might not be a core component, I agree, but it gets to show how some people, whole teams and the entire player base are treated and how problems are resolved. If they are resolved, and not simply deleted (this I will leave to your personal opinion)

  17. What do you mean SM?

    I see you still have a Translation Team badge. What's up with that?

  18. No web dev.
    I don't know really. All TT forums are still existing as well.

  19. I'm not sure if you're talking to me here, but I never said it was shutting down, although I'd assume that's the direction it's heading. Why else would you fire the one guy who was keeping both servers alive just before he could launch some major Bedrock updates, when he's seemingly done nothing wrong? Hiring new admins to replace the ones who resigned wasn't a bad idea, but it probably won't amount to much at this point (in the grand scheme of things), while firing Timmi will have major ramifications.

    I was optimistic at the start of this year, I really was, not that Mineplex would be anything like it was before, but that it wouldn't be all doom and gloom. It didn't take them long at all to to prove me wrong, unfortunately.
