Good Morning Blacksmiths!
This is our weekly update pertaining to what's happening this week at The Forge.
Nova's Ending begins! This episode was postponed due to an apparent lack of attendance (I only had one 'maybe' posted in the episode thread). I only have 4 episodes planned to close this story out. Please Please Please either post whether or not you'll make it - or even let me know if I should bother trying to close out the tale? One way or another, some communication would be greatly appreciated I hope to see you all Saturday at 15:30 EST (20:30 GMT)! Don't forget to confirm your attendance before Friday!
Happy to report that Brand New Day had a successful pilot episode, and will be serving us as a weekly serial on Sundays at 15:30 EST (20;30 GMT) Please check it out, It's a great series with a fun cast of characters!
Pegasus didn't go as planned last week. It didn't go at all, really. I want to thank Callum and Vortrex for stopping by, and helping me give it a try (before we got distracted with shooting balls ) I want to take a little time, and reevaluate this series. I'm leaning toward a fresh reboot - but we'll see. If you have any suggestions, let me know.
Friday's 'Use Your Words' Stream was a great deal of fun, we even got some Twitch excitement from it, and it was suggested by Callum that we look into doing things like that in a revival of Friday Night Fun Night - and I agree.
So, this week, I think we should play something *similar* but with a bit more name recognition. Jackbox (I own 1-6, so we can switch in and out, and play anything if we want )
I'll get a post up about this within the next day or two, but for now - plan your friday night to be a night of laughs, and generalized shenanigans
Let's Kick some Ass this week folks! And remember, you are loved
HOW TO GET WHITELISTED Our server operates an automated whitelist, this is to try and help eliminate greifing by requiring all players on the server to be a registered member of The Forge or Earth's Elite.
In order to get added to the whitelist you will need to complete a certain field on your forum profile, you may have already done this during your registration (if signed up prior to 7th December 2019).
It can take up to 30 minutes for the system to get you added to the server, the whitelist queue is processed every 15 minutes if there are users waiting to be whitelisted.
If you have been waiting for longer than 30 minutes and haven't been whitelisted after completing the Minecraft Username field under your account settings, then please contact a member of the ops team who will be able to get you added and investigate the issues with the system.
GOOD TO KNOW
Server performs an automated restart at midnight (GMT)
Server performs automated backups every 6 hours (Midnight, 6AM, Noon, 6PM GMT)
Daily network/server maintenance occurs between 3AM & 9AM (GMT) every day across our server network. There shouldn't be issues, but slightly increased pings should be expected during this time

I just wanted to quickly put out a notice about a change that has been made to the Minecraft server backups.
We have been taking daily backups of the world up until today.
We are now taking 4 backups of the world a day - 00:15, 06:00, 12:00, & 18:00 (GMT).
We used to store 48 hours worth of backups (so 2 backups of the world), we are now only storing 24 hours worth of backups on the server, however, we are now backing up those backups daily to our off site server and will be storing those for 7 days.
This means we're not only keeping backups for longer but we are also taking backups more frequently which means if something was to happen less progress will be lost.
The reason I am putting up this notice is because there will potentially be a lag causing process every 6 hours now, instead of every 24.
Daily restarts are unaffected and will continue to happen at midnight.
