We have a winner!
What happened to the forums?
We have seen several server crashes over the past number of weeks, this was as a result of the forums generating massive amounts of log files due to errors. This in turn filled up the disk space of the proxy server and would crash the database. Rendering both survival and skyblock useless.
In an attempt to resolve the issue with the forum I updated it to the newest version. However, the database structure changed in such a way that it was not possible to go forward with the data.
I know this will be disappointing to some of you, but I share your disappointment. However I remain committed to ensuring the stability of the game server over the website since that is all we are here for.
Why bother signing up again?
I loved the forums on Vanilla World, it brought a real sense of community to the server. This was before Discord was around and we would chat on Teamspeak too. While I understand Discord is a valuable tool for our community I would still encourage people to share on the forums for more long-term discussions.
I will look to have auto-posting of new threads for certain forum topics set up in the coming days.
Things are not quite complete
Upgrading to the newest version of the forum software has given us some new features, such as rank syncing from the server. Be sure to use your correct Minecraft username so you have your VIP/Supporter rank on the forums!
Over the next few days, we hope to get everything back to the state it was, including the rules and all of the forum sections. If you see any missing or would like to see some added be sure to post a suggestion so we can consider it.
To encourage people to sign up, complete the following by the 1st of May to be in with the chance of winning a $20 gift card to the Vanilla World Reloaded store!
I will randomly select a winner on the 1st of the month and I will contact you through a forum PM. Be sure to keep an eye on it!
As always thank you for your ongoing support!
