      Updated the Community Costs monthly goal, as Freebuild was still taken into account with a few other services.

      Hm, it actually might even be the php-fpm using too much memory that causes the site crash issues. Deploying experimental fix, for science!

        RAM usage after 24h, still reduced by 65 percent. I think this was the issue ;)

        Typical mistake ;) I once deleted all files in my home directory after typing 'rm -rf some_directory/ *' instead of 'rm -rf some_directory/*'

        Currently servers are behaving strangely, build, pvp and cinematic close without notice, but dev server stays accessible

      Next week on the agenda: Moving website(s) and teamspeak to the build server, effectively reducing servercount to a single one.

        It is more of an economic measure. Though I think performance wise the server should be able to take it. Currently the VPS that is used for hosting the website and teamspeak periodically runs out of memory due to the mysql database.

        We don't allow people to download the map from our server, you a free to come and look at it on the server.

        @ooitsbirdo How many user/bot/etc. page/image requests per second the webserver is handling.

        Let me see if I can dumb it down a bit more for ya: Clicky clicky, pagey loady, county county numbers. Knowledge.

        Still I think 24m is extreme for a server that doesn't server webpages?

      Going to experiment with high definition dynmap for a few months, to monitor the bandwith/resource consumption. If it's doable, HD remains.

        Now stop already worrying about AC and their potential opinions... But I too would welcome a more neutral name, "Old map" or "MCME 1.0"

        Also another small thing: Could you adjust the minimum zoom level so that one can fit the entire map on the screen at once (like we had previously)

        Well, I usually wouldn't worry about their opinions. But since this is a super simple thing to do and it doesn't disadvantage us in any way, why not? :-)

        Now this 'problem' has been fixed. Don't forget we go by our own standards. I don't even get this entire deal with comparing two independent projects doing their own thing. Leave each other alone and mind your own?

    I founded this community on October 16 2010. It all began when I was introduced to Minecraft around June or August 2010. I started playing it, and I immediatly loved the endless posibilities and the social aspect of the game. I mainly played multiplayer in that time, even though it was terrible unstable, I had tons of fun!

    Around that time I also became a moderator for the Tweakcraft Server, a server being hosted for people from Tweakers.net and other communities. The server was run by Grum, who now works at Mojang. During my stay there among all those technical people, I really got interested into the aspects of running a Minecraft server for myself, and that is when I decided to rent myself a server box at a data center.

    I hosted various Minecraft servers which were available for everyone to join, offering a wide range of RPG plugins. Though I wanted something more serious than constant griefing and random people goofing around, I wanted to create a very small community of people who would have fun playing together and doing something constructive instead of annoying other players.

    I wanted to offer my time and resources to an idea that I would find interesting. While browsing the minecraftforums, I stumbled upon the idea of recreating the entire world of Middle-Earth. Me being a Lord of the Rings fan, my interest peaked! After some discussion and finding willing people to start off the project, the first blocks were being built with one goal in mind: Recreating the world of Middle Earth!
