It's Eurovision time!

Another year has passed, and the world's greatest song contest is about to return, this year in Kiev, Ukraine, with the semi-finals being held tomorrow. To celebrate the contest that gave us Verka Serduchka and the singing grannies, we've just decided in #lounge that we're going to hold a Eurovision-themed music night on Discord!

It will take place on Tuesday 9th May (tomorrow, at the time of this being posted) at 6pm GMT, an hour before the semi-final starts. We'll be playing the good, the bad, and the hilarious, so please come if you have the chance. We'll be in #music when the event starts.

See you there!

To clarify, this isn't very serious, but it is rather funny nonetheless.
Event TNT Wars
At the beginning of this month, I announced my intention of bringing back Classic TNT Wars in premium as an event. The server is now fully complete, and will be opened on Saturday 13th May at 7:00PM GMT, 1 hour before the meeting. The server will be accessible through the regular server lobby.​


Here's an awesome trailer for the server made by GOODYSMOODY - big shoutout to him!

After a few days of the poll, the clear winner became apparent so work was started, we did a bit of testing and building and it looks like we're good to release.

I'd like to thank Zel, Freaky, Arelic and all the admins that helped. I hope you all have a great time on the server!​

It's been a fun past few months running and managing DarkRP for ER, but sadly, it is time to shut it down. DarkRP started to stagnate shortly after release, and with most of the staff being super busy at the most inconvenient of times (including myself), the server pretty much died out and sat here with no purpose.

With that, Hoog and Myself have agreed that it needs to be shutdown. We don't want to dedicate any more resources to it, because of how far deep in the hole it is - and in reality, once your playerbase turns to none on a gmod server, the server will most likely sit there for eternity only getting a few random players every few weeks.

Thank you all who have participated in the beta, that helped out staffing, or just generally played and enjoyed the server. We wouldn't have made it this far without you, and I appreciate all of you :-). This server wouldn't have been anything without this community behind it. The server is already closed and will have no closing event due to lack of interest in the recent times. The forums will be put into archives shortly also. If you ever need anything from the server, just shoot Hoog or myself a PM, as we have backups of the server.

With that, I assure you that I still (and a few others) have a few plans up their sleeves still, so stay tuned in the future!

Sadly, Legacies of Primordia is coming to an end.

We don’t feel like it has the player base to be worth the amount of resources it uses, and we feel like those resources could be used for better things. A lot of things went wrong with the server, I feel like this thread could explain it far better than I could. Regardless me and hopefully many others still had fun playing on the server for it’s brief life.

I send a big thank you to Ogarci and the orginal team for making this server a reality. I’d also like to thank the player base for making this server what is it and the staff team for dealing with the problems that the server had.

We feel like it’d be best if the server went out with a bang. On the 21st of April, the map will be backed up and released to the public and the Anarchy event will begin. (more details to follow)

We hope you all had fun, and rest assured this is not the end of EscapeRestart SMP servers.

Thank you.

This week for the movie night we'll follow another one of Leonardo DiCaprio's wild adventures-- a thief, who steals corporate secrets through use of dream-sharing technology, is giving the inverse task of planting an idea into the mind of a CEO. Great director, great composer, great story, great cast!

We will also be doing another meeting this Saturday at 20:00 GMT, so one hour before the movie.​


What is a meeting?
Every Saturday, staff members of the community gather together to announce global news, server news, promotions/demotions and always answer any questions that people in the community to answer. Typically the recap of each meeting is posted on the forums.

Why attend a meeting?
By no means do you have to attend meetings, many attend them both to be up to date with the latest news and because its seen as a nice social gathering. And many times (like this saturday) we run an event such as a movie or game afterwards. If you have nothing better to do on your saturday night then we offer you to tag along. Which brings me to...

How do i attend a meeting?
This time, we will be doing the meeting on Discord. Attending the meeting is quite simple: Just join the appropriate voice channel when the meeting begins. You can chat in #voice-chat.

When are the meetings?
Meetings are held every two weeks on a saturday, currently at 8pm GMT. To see when this is held in your local time, simply click this link. It'll typically last 15-30 minutes.
Hi,

Thank you for responding to the survey we put out a while back. In total, we got 53 responses, only 3 of which were stupid, which was way better than I expected, and we appreciate it. After the survey closed, instead of just giving each server their results and letting that be that, I instead decided to get each server to write a response to the survey, to show that your feedback is important and will be listened to. These are the responses got. This is going to be a long one.

Community
Donor Perks
The survey found that the community was in favour of implementing donor perks. People largely preferred cosmetics only, though, so we will be looking at whether this will be worth implementing and finding good ways to implement this.

A new Community Admin
This was something that got mentioned a lot in the Community Admin team question. People obviously want more from us, and we want to deliver more, so this is something we will be discussing.

Future of the Community
This was quite a mixed one. Mainly, people want us to stay with Minecraft, and from there, there have been some calls to expand, and some calls to stay put and advertise - we’ll have to figure out what to do here. More events will probably come into play, though, both with temporary gameservers likely involving modpacks, and temporary servers on other games, such as Terraria and Starbound. Clans on the bigger MMO games like League was something that was mentioned too, so we’ll look into that as well. There is quite a lot we can do with this.

Advertising
I’ve done a pretty awful job with it, and it is important, so for now, this will be disbanded and brought up with the admins if needed, because they were primarily who was in the team in the end. If this will be resurrected, it will be with a different admin - potentially a new CA, or a server admin. Sign-ups were low for the team, motivation was often not there, and I will take responsibility...
