The server has been crashing lately again and unfortunately, it's been down for hours at a time. For now, we've brought the server back up but we will need to have it crash again to identify the cause -- sorry!
We ran into some unfortunate (and currently partly unexplained) issues that required restoring the server from backup.
While we keep hourly, daily, monthly backups both on-site and off-site, something happened with the hourly backups in the past 24 hours where we couldn't restore from them anymore. Unfortunately, that meant that we had to roll back the server back (EDIT: only affects Alice) 12 hours. That said, the server was down for many hours before everything went nuts (due to a server crash), so at least that minimized the damage somewhat.
If you have lost items / builds, please contact a moderator and we can arrange for refunds (or "roll forwards" from alternate backups).
We are looking for people who would be interested in helping build Alice 1.7's next spawn.
There is no Alice 1.7 modpack yet, as we would like to use MC 1.7.10 for the server, but most mods are only available for MC 1.6.4 or MC 1.7.2 at this time. For the time being, we are building with just vanilla Minecraft.
If you are interested, please post on this thread. If possible, please provide screenshots. It would also be great if you had Skype.
