Effectively of today, the freebuild server has been discontinued. The worlds will be put available to download in the near future, while the worlds we still use such as Themed Builds, will be moved over to the Build server.

The decision to close down freebuild is both financially and as staff members pointed out it would be better for the community if it became one (both in social and management aspects).

I am Stig Burgundy, and I approve this course of action!

I am assuming that new protocols will be implemented to address a free build world being added to Main.

I see this alleviating some of the trouble of having to hunt down staff to address griefers, and reunites the community as a whole.

Now when you say we're keeping the themedbuild world, is that in it's entirety? or only a world with the current themed build?

The exact same world that was on freebuild has been moved to main, not sure if it's going to stay as it is
