Code and Updates

Hello Travelers,
The server is still online for the time being and has not been updated to the newest version of minecraft. Sometime in the future I will be updating the server to the current version of minecraft. I am very much looking forward to the day in which minecraft itself has a modding API and we no longer have to deal with the delays of Bukkit having it's own codebase. The position for assistance is still open and is needed now more then ever in order to help update the server. I would also like to mention that Jim (IbramGaunt00) has created a book to introduce people to the world of Demeter. I hope to soon see this book spawn with every new player who joins the server, but in the meantime you can find a copy in the giant treasure chest in hombase.

Winter Solstice

It is that time of the year again and I am quite happy with everything that is going on in life. As most of you have a nice long winter break to look forward to I will remind you once more of the position available to help moderate the server as a sys admin. Also let me inform you that no java experience is required you only have to know how to ssh into a linux machine, and use a text editor. Everything else you will learn as you go. Good Luck and Have Fun

We need another sysadmin

Over the past week or so I have been working on writing new plugins for the server, and they are coming along just fine. But the part that I am realizing more and more is that we need someone who is able to learn the configuration settings and the setup and maintenance of the plugins that are actually on the server. I am not able to single-handedly configure and fix all of the problems with the plugins on the server as well as write new plugins or features for plugins that exist. This new sysadmin will be in charge of the final touches of the server.

Certain things they will be in charge of include:
Making the nether render properly on the dynmap
Updating / Upgrading the dynmap

Taking care of mundane features that are not implemented yet:
Renaming plots
Combining plots
Deleting whole plots
Modifying Shop Prices
Adding new items to the shop / maintaining the shopfront
Helping to figure out what current plugins break with each bukkit update

Benefits of taking this job include a salary of $0 an hour, ssh access to the demetermine server, full admin rights on the server, and a email address.

To apply for this position, comment or send me a short description of why you think you would be a good fit for all or part of this job. Knowledge or willingness to learn about how dynmap works is a requirement.
