Status update: Please Read
I've been digesting the contents of past admin discussions and thinking about where we go from here. Here's some plans for the immediate future.
I am transferring Frontier to a new host. This will be an experiment to see how people's connectivity and play experience is. I've picked something fairly inexpensive, and once we ascertain that the hosting meets our needs, we'll have to discuss how it gets funded going forward. I've already been contacted privately with offers to help out on that front, so I'm confident that it won't be a problem. I'll post the server details in the coming week once I'm satisfied that it's up and stable.
I've also been giving some thought to vanilla creative. Usage of our creative worlds in the past has always been in fits and starts, with a lot of activity at the outset, and then tapering off rapidly. I have some ideas about how to provide a creative world if people are interested, but I'll have to do some testing.
That being said, I'd like to hear from everyone about whether there is interest in a creative world. If so, should we resurrect Sanctuary, or should we start anew? If we start a new creative world, I could provide a download of the Sanctuary world file to anyone interested.
