Phew, summer is coming, at least here in Switzerland, and to be honest, I'm already a bit afraid it's gonna get a tad too warm for my taste What about you, do you prefer the cold or warm seasons, or does the summer still hide under a rock where you live?
Anyway, dress up matching to your weather so that you can enjoy this week's Times without having to moan about it being too warm or too cold.
Breaking News: 1.9 Update on the move!
@q220 made a clear statement with his recent status update and also I saw that the Development Server has been updated and runs now on Spigot 1.9.2, in fact Eriol has already updated all of his plugins to 1.9. From what I have heard was the update from 1.7 to 1.8 a much more...

Hello ladies and gentlemen, we would like to welcome you all to the MCME Times Issue #35! Many of you are not new to the Times, and enjoy having a place to get some quick updates on the server operations and happenings. Since the Times first launched, @Fireinferno13, @MaDIIReD, and @Finrod_Amandil have done an excellent job of sharing their personalities with their writings. Now, for the first time ever, the Times is a work of collaboration! With the assistance of Finrod, @Ardelenia, @DarthRagnar, @ooitsbirdo, and @Speeder45 will be ushering the next generation of Times writers! We, as a writing team, are in the early stages of making our approach to the Times. We hope that you continue to enjoy the Times, and that we have your...
Please forgive me for this belated and still rather minimalistic edition of the Times this week, but I am just feeling a bit overwhelmed and worn out by some IRL shenanigans currently. But hey, I think I can see the light at the end of this tunnel, so things should get brighter again very soon!
But now, don't occupy yourselves with humble Fin's worries, I am sure everyone has his own burden to carry, and instead lean back and enjoy a short but hopefully still good read!
Andrast (In Progress) - Lead: @jacenpeter
Jacen has started to apply the materials - snow, stone and grass, to a rather large area in northern Andrast, meanwhile Wrox has continued his terraforming in...
~ Rank Updates ~Howdy folks! Arkengard here with some rank updates. It’s been awhile since our last edition of The Times, so this section will be a little bit longer than it usually is! Make sure you congratulate all of our newest promotions!
Mandolore100: I would like to introduce to you all the newest admin on MCME! I believe he’s been mentioned in previous times, but I would like to reiterate that here. Mando has been promoted to Head Guide on the server. This takes many of the guide-specific responsibilities away from Dyno and better aids in the guide management process! Give Mando a congrats if you haven’t already! Not every day we get another admin....
BWOT: The new Chief Editor of The Times, BWOT, has recently been promoted from Foreman to Designer! You know what that means! Stop asking him for jobs and let him sit in AFK in peace! Jokes aside, BWOT...
I, Mr @Finrod_Amandil, have decided to change my minecraft name to be the same as my favorite designer. Either that or @Fireinferno13 has temporarily taken over the MCME Times once again!
Spoiler alert, its the latter. Thats right, @DSESGH and I will be splitting the writing for the MCME Times during the summer while the ever studious Finrod prepares for his finals in August. We have decided to alternate weeks over the course of the summer to divide up the work load and prevent either of us from burning out. You'd be surprised how much time and effort it takes to write a decent issue of the Times. While we won't make any promises to reach the same level of lore spectacularness of the valar himself, we can promise that everyone will be enjoying the next few issues.
So without further ado, I give you once again a...
~ Winter Events ~
The Winter Events are back and we have got loads of fun filled events for you this year. “I’m going to update the snowball fight plugin for winter events,” said Eriol. This means that we will be able to have snowball fights on the server. For the full schedule leading up to Christmas Day, please check this thread: ~MCME Winter Events 2017~
Also @BWOT will be hosting a Christmas Tree building competition in plotworld. Warp ChristmasTreeComp and grab a plot to enter in the competition by grabbing a plot....
Since our lovely Finrod has been busy with some IRL stuff, I've opted to do this weeks Times myself. Things should be back to normal in the Times office next week, when Fin (hopefully) finds some more time.
But for now, sit down, relax, grab a cup of coffee and enjoy this weeks probably first ever morning edition of the Times! (Yes, my timezone is really that bad).

So, once more, I am really sorry for not being able to delight you with a regular edition of the Times this week! As small compensation I can present you a short breakdown of the staff meeting we had last saturday. I happily invite you to voice your opinion on the mentioned matters, or even bring forth an all new topic you would like to voice your stance on! Everyone's voice, regardless of the rank, counts the same to me, as long as it is a seriously meant statement, so speak up!Summary of the 20th MCME Staff Meeting
As some of you might agree on, is that the Guide rank in it's current state does not live up to it's full potential. In this meeting we gathered and quickly discussed some new ideas to give the Guide rank a new twist and potentially improve it.
The discussed ideas were:
Bring the perms of...
I am pleased to present you yet another instance of the almost already classy Easter Egg Hunt here on MCME! This event is about finding a couple of eggs, placed somewhere on the MCME server. As a special new addition I have a prize this year for the player who manages to find all the eggs the fastest, if anyone manages to do so at all. Just as the event itself, the prize is rather puzzling...
MCME Easter Egg Hunt 2017
So you thought last year's hunt was tough?
(I checked the postage prizes, should be able to deliver in pretty much any corner of the Earth)
The event starts on Easter Sunday, 2pm BST. The eggs will be pasted in shortly before the event. The eggs will be present...
Oh boy was this a busy Sunday... From Will's MCME Reunion party which I only could join for some Cards against Humanity and Team Fortress, and then over the extra-long Audiobook session to more ordinary stuff like writing elvish song lyrics (#OnlyTolkienNerdThings) all was available to keep me busy until very late at night, and as of course the last thing we all want is a Times in lessened quality I decided to give myself one more day of time for it.
So pretend it's still Sunday and you haven't worked all day long yet and enjoy this week's MCME Times!
Hehe looks like I found a way to motivate you guys . Opposed to the 14 submissions from the 3 weeks before, I got a staggering 172 responses during the last...
Welcome back to another edition of the MCME Times! Hopefully everyone had a nice week, as there is some great progress on the server to share. A lot of really cool villages and castles have popped up over the course of the past week so be sure to check them out.
Otherwise, the server has been consistently moving forward after the massive 1.10 overhaul of an update. Hopefully this means that the new, unique MCME plugins will be implemented sometime in the near future to improve server and project functioning as a whole.
This ended up being a relatively short edition of the Times, but still just as good. As always, sit back, relax, and enjoy this week of the MCME Times.

Me (@Artie_) have joined the Times Editing. @DarthRagnar has left the team due to irl obligations ): . Thank you for the time you spent in writing the Times, mate!

Aldburg Revamps(In Progress) - Lead: @Fireinferno13
A literal ton of work completed this week on houses, walls, and shops. There are still a small handful of houses that need building in plotworld. Also, a competition was started :
Aldburg Keep Contest
The community wide contest to make the best possible keep for Aldburg is now open! Be sure to register your team for the contest as soon as...
Hello MCME community!
As you all know a new Head Designer Role was being decided on. This was done by the 5 admins of the server: q220, Finrod, Dyno, Credoo and Mando. The new head designer role idea was brought up by Finrod as work on projects was overwhelming him and after the early January 2018 staff meeting it was decided that a person should be put into this position as soon as possible. Anyway, as you probably guessed by me writing this note the admins have selected me to take on this position.
I will be writing a more formal note on what this means for the server and what my position will be later. I will also answer any questions you have if you leave them as a reply below.
Anyway, I am delighted to be one of your Head Designers and I will do the best I can for the community. I will be promoted formally January 22 20:00 GMT (tonight). It will be held at the Dol Amroth Palace. Hope to see you all there (that can make it.)
So for now thank you all and see you later.
*yawn* even though these are the first lines you read, they usually are the last ones I write, and this time it kinda fills me with relief as it means I can at last travel towards the land of dreams; probs I just should schedule a bit better so that its not 3am when I can finish the Times
There were some rank changes again, read on for some exclusive news from our #1 reporter Stig Burgundy!
Andrast (In Progress) - Lead: @Tyranystrasz
We've been going through the books and wikis again and have therefore revised some work and plans done to match the lore better. Practically this mainly means less buildings on the western shoreline aka Drúwaith Iaur, the fortfication Golf Rovlug has been removed again.
Maybe someone has glued...
Ahhh finally a week where I could lean back a bit! Progress is always very nice, but lately it was just crazy how many things there were being worked on and where I had been putting my nose into! Especially the plugin development has taken a bit of a time-out this week, and therefore also these Times will be a bit shorter than usual. I hope you'll enjoy it nevertheless!
Breaking News: Auto-Teleport Plugin installed!
Yeah, the first of the new plugins is finally installed on the main map! Find a little more info in the Plugins section!
Andrast (In Progress) - Lead:...
For quite some weeks we did not have any newly completed projects anymore, but this week we can announce right away two of them! And even better they are probable the biggest projects of 2k15 so far! So quickly read on and enjoy the project leaders' last statements about their fantastic work!

@jacenpeter continued his large-scale terraforming project that is the White Mountains, this week featuring one of MCME's biggest glaciers, along with a lot of additional terrain work.Lamedon (In Progress) - Lead: @_Luk
Still a lot of hands are being layed upon this region and a lot of progress is to be...
Currently the build server is running a 1.8 version of Minecraft, some plugins were a real pain to get working so expect bugs/flaws.
- Updated Minecraft server software to 1.8.8
+ Plugin Updates +
- Fixes so it will run on MC1.8, might lack item name support.
- Fixes so it will run on MC1.8
- Updated plugin so Themed Build plots can only generate on the Themed-Build world. This should prevent irrecoverable damage to non-tb worlds when making a mistake.
- Language corrections
- Permission fixes
- Now can manage teleportion from non mv worlds to mv worlds
- Now supports UUIDs.
PermissionsEx: 1.22.6 > 1.23.3

- Readded timed groups.
- Fix for ladder-fetching.
- Performance increased for file back-end and bug tweaks.
- Change Guava to more recent version...
I think I promised it a while ago and now I finally present it: Our first proper public meeting maybe ever or at least since a long time! Other than initially intended it won't be a staff meeting where other Ranks can just come and listen, everyone can contribute to the discussion and topics as well! Although I kind of expect that many of our staff members do participate!
To find an optimal date for the meeting here's a doodle where everyone that is interested in attending should enter their availability! Of course unfortuntale it will be impossible to accomodate everyone. The meeting will be recorded and those that missed out can continue to discuss in the Forums afterwards.
Doodle: Doodle: MCME Public Meeting #1
The date will be set within the next few days. Please spread the word so that as many players see this post early enough!
The topics I'd like to discuss from my side are so far (please...
