I have been faced with a difficult task while trying to update the Survival server's proxy software, and the much needed Spigot update is not wanting to convert player data properly. I have yet to find a solution, but will be working diligently on this issue until it is resolved. At this point in time my best estimate would be a few days of downtime. I know this is a lot, and it is very unfortunate, but as of right now that's the only reasonable time frame I can expect. It may even be better to go ahead and do the reset so many of you have been asking for, as it would allow us to incorporate all the new changes from 1.8, all the updated plugins currently running in Factions, a brand new spawn with heavily improved shop, and more. If we decided to go ahead and reset survival (which was always planned, simply a matter of when), we would likely leave mcMMO intact so you don't lose any levels, as well as vote coins and credit balances. Things reset would include the map, inventory, enderchest, and money balances.
Personally I believe a reset is the best course of option. It would allow us to make some much needed improvements with a fresh map and clean slate for everyone, and bring a lot of life back to the survival community. However I will not reset if the majority of players do not support it (unless that's the only option). Please leave a comment below letting me know your opinion, and do try to be friendly. Spamming things like "omg I'm quitting if you reset" are not helpful. I know some players will quit if a reset occurs, but many more will play harder than before and old players will come back. Just try to be reasonable and logical when giving your argument towards or against a reset. That is all I can ask. Thank you.
