Editor's Note by Soarz
With 2020 coming to a wrap i was thinking this edition could use a little life of energy! So we included many interesting things for you to read, this can be our 2020 Project Wrap-Up or the almost concluded Winter Events! Even if you haven't been here for all of 2020 we want you to feel like you can understand what MCME has been like. It's been alot of fun this year and i'm personally looking forward to what 2021 has to bring to the table for us to enjoy. Speaking of enjoying, i won't keep you any longer, please relax, sit back and get ready for another edition of the MCME TIMES!!!!!!!???!!!

Website moved over to seperate server

Since 2 weeks ago I moved over the website to a new server. We are hitting some performance caps on our current server where we host a wide variety of game shards (minecraft servers) and services.

With this new server, I was finally able to get some much-needed upgrades in place. Something that is hard to do with our current server as doing major operating system updates or building the latest software for crucial services (like database, webserver, ...) usually leads to considerable downtime and debugging for me :D.

I hope that most of you noticed the increase in speed for the website.
Because of this the monthly donation goal has been increased too.

For the future: I am currently looking into new solutions so we can have better stability for the game servers. My goal is also to increase the capacity so that the we no longer have performance reduction when we are hitting larger caps or when there's a lot of activity going on. One of those ideas is to assign dedicated servers to...
Upgrade for the website.

Festive Season!
Tis the Season to Build!

Editor's Note by Mapthor
Hey all, Map here again. The past few weeks have been full of excitement on MCME with the Winter Events and it seems like everyone is having a pretty swell time. We just ran the Ice Boat Race yesterday and, let me tell ya, it might be the second best event of all times, behind the Mini Middle-Earth Race of course. I’m not biased at all, trust me. Make sure to attend the rest of the events this month. The team has put so much effort into these things that it would be a shame for them to go to waste.

Happy Sailing,
