We'll be having some scheduled maintenance tonight in a few hours. The forums will be locked down and moved to a new server. We'll provide you with the IP you can add to your hosts file to switch over to the new server immediately.
See you on the new server.
EDIT: Postponed until tomorrow. The downtime should be very short and mostly depend on how long it takes for you to see the new server.
Server maintenance COMPLETED with little to no issues. Thanks for your patience and cooperation!
Due to factors beyond our control, Leaky - our bug tracker - will be down for a while until we work something out to get it back up. The server that is hosting Leaky is going offline with short notice.
Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, we're making backups and will be restoring them on a new server as soon as we possibly can.
How often do you actually play Minecraft? How much time do you spend with your face glued to the console cleaning up after that griefer who just hit you, or playing about with that new plugin you just saw? Personally I dislike the default console, it's so frustrating to use. So I decided to fix it!
Thanks to some magic based... erm, magic, Craftbukkit now comes with a new and improved console. It features a command history (up-down arrow! My god how much I love that), line editing (left-right arrow! Made a typo? Fix it, don't delete your whole line), colours (unix only, sorry!) and my favourite fix... it no longer loses your command when some other text prints to your screen. That's right, you can actually now see the command you're typing out. Huzzah!
We've also made the console output a little smaller, removing the date from the display. Don't worry, it's still in the server.log though!
