I know a lot of you guys don't like teamspeak for numerous reasons so I wanted to test out a new alternative called Discord. It doesn't require you to download anything if you don't want and it's user interface is extremely easy to navigate and looks very visually appealing. It also comes with some nice securities to ensure that no issues arise like they do in Skype. Essentially Discord combines the best of Teamspeak and Skype into one and adds on a web client that can be used to voice chat even. Depending on how well Discord works for us I may look into making it a permanent replacement for Teamspeak.

This morning I was informed that Woop.ga was bought by someone else. This happened because .ga domains are all free, but if someone sees a name that they want they can pay the company that owns .ga to give them the domain for a large amount of money. Sadly, I did not have nearly enough to reserve a 4 letter ga name so I never actually purchased it.
If you have been using the woop.ga domain to connect you should switch over to woopgaming.com as it is the only domain that is guaranteed reliablity.
So last night I decided to push an update to some of the coding that runs the core server in an attempt to fix the performance issues that have continued to get worse over the last few months. One of the notible changes is that I increased the servers allocated ram from 4GB to 16GB and allocated more during the startup to allow for quicker restarts. So far I have found one issue with the latest update which was quickly patched but it is still fairly untested with the only reliable source was the wiki page about it.
What does this mean?
Not much for you other than you might see the occassional hickup but overall the server should run a lot more smoother for now on.
You say you fixed the lag, but I still am lagging!
We use lag to explain many things in Minecraft and it can get quite confusing. The lag you are most likely experiencing is issues with your latency with the server since the server is hosted in Montreal, Canada. The people who most likely will have this lag are people who are not in North America and usually can not be fixed because it's just due to the sheer distance from the server. The lag that I fixed was the TPS lag, which was causing things to slow down and often caused some players to have large delays on chunk generation or commands to be actually executed.
When you are registering your account it will make you verify an email saying it's really you. I can almost guarantee it will be located in the Spam folder right now because I have no clue how to setup a secured email system to tie into the forum software. Don't worry, the emails are safe just Gmail and other email providers use certain requirements to sent mail directly to your inbox which I am still learning.
Welcome to the new website! I know you all are most likely tired of these "new" sites every few months due to one reason or another it kept happening. But, I believe this is going to be our forum software for the future. The code is completely open-sourced so it's free and easy to customize. There is a ton of customization that I can do and have already begun doing so. This new site will have tie-ins with the donation site by being able to sync the page over and also sync the ranks to ranks on the forum in the near future. You will be able to do all your votes through the site soon and get rewards. We are also looking into the possibility of a bans list with a built-in bans appeal form. There is a page posted on the forums regarding the rules and regulations of the teamspeak, forums, website, and servers which can be accessed by clicking "Rules" at the bottom right of the page.
I'll have some more posts up soon, feel free to start contributing on the forum and give me some suggestions :)
