Dawn's Sharenator Minecraft Server

Update: 5/23/2011 (Later)
Alright ladies and gents, Children of all ages...
The new world isn't exactly as ready as it should be for all of you, but we are sure all of you are ready for it! The Whitelist is currently off, and anyone can join again. Although, be prepared for a small surprise in your entrance...

The rules are generally the same. You'll find them all where you spawn.
We have opened the doors before we could build our mega-fortress or community fortress for that matter... and as such for a limited time monsters are actually turned off.

However before going any further, we would like to reinforce this one simple concept. We assume if your on Sharenator, you already know how to screenshot? Well here's the thing ladies and gents... While we do have alternative systems in place, the absolute best thing you can do if you see anyone doing anything bad, or anything that could be considered evidence in griefing, is screenshot it and report it to us.

How should you let us know? Easy! Post the picture of the little bastard on this very sharenator post! Just remember if you accuse someone falsely you'll be in trouble too...

For our server to survive we'll need your cooperation...
...for our server to strive we'll need you to help as much as you can!

So without further annoyingness...

The server info, once again, is still


Update: 5/23/2011
Believe it or not, Dawn gave up on Jdogg and Tall coming back. As such, Dawn also gave up on Towny. Don't get me wrong, even I thought it might turn out to be a fun idea. But after talking it over with her the mindset seems to be what made the original server so great was how close to Vanilla Beta it was, almost completely clean of mods and addons altogether.

So Dawn requested that I get some form of Antibuild and a Chest Protect type program. Or figure out how to make a safe bank for her. Given that the idea I had for a bank involves lots of bedrock, minecarts, and redwire (Which is vulnerable to explosives apparently... ) I'm working on the Chest Protect-type thing now. With any luck, the server will be up and open within the next 2-4 hours. Worst case it will definitely be up tomorrow.

I know some of you have been waiting a long time, and getting very angry at the downtime. But I can honestly say to those of you who have silently waited, biting your tongues and practicing your patience, I thank you from the bottom of where my heart would be if I had one. Dawn and I have been quite busy recently so work on the server has been slow. I know for a fact I wouldn't have the patience for waiting so long, but you all did. So give yourself a hug and a pat on the back, soon you'll be welcome in the New World, and I hope to hell it was worth the wait.


Update: 5/15/2011
Server is back in Dawn's control, and currently being worked on. It will be open again within a day or two.

Requested Backup Links to the Old World:

Alright, let's start off with the basics.

The server has been subject to a large-scale attack that is hard to describe, homes are ruined and the rail system is completely fucked over. We thought everyone could actually be mature about this, that everybody would work together towards a better community. We've been proven wrong, as always, by mankind's ability to be a complete and total prick when there's nothing that can be done against them.

So in light of the situation, we also have to mention that financially we are incapable of making the payment for this month's subscription fee. In other words, the server will be shut down in roughly 15 days. It was fun for the very short amount of time it lasted, but somebody had to go and ruin everything for everyone. We have more then a few people we suspect of doing it, but the sad and unfortunate truth is they got away with it and we don't know exactly who to punish, so we have to punish everyone. Happy Friday the 13th you prick, we hope it was worth it.

Or rather, that's what they'd like to read we'd guess. However they underestimate how stubborn we are when we are angry. Did you really believe we didn't have a backup? That we were incapable of bouncing back from such a petty and useless little attack? It's honestly a shame, if you hadn't decided to be an ass we wouldn't have lost 12 hours worth or work. On the other hand, that doesn't matter to us since we're now implementing harsher security systems to prevent future situations such as this one. If anything, the server has actually been made better.

After consulting with our most trusted moderators and mods-to-be that were on, the server is going to be turned off shortly, then restarted. And by restarted, we mean a brand new fresh and shiny, un-touched server/world. Then we're going to work on it for 2-3 days preparing it for use again with a better system and layout then before, and make it public again.

When we first made the server, we had little if not no experience in running one. We've been a GM on WoW before and that's about it. Now after a month we have seen many things we wanted to change, and many things that could have been better. This time we'll be using a more secure setup to ensure that those changes happen.

While we know for a fact that this will be heartbreaking to some, we implore you all to view this in the same manner as us. This server is the closest thing we have to friends we can speak with in real-time, we cannot express with words how much we do not want to see it go. It's a source of pride, a social medium to find new people, and most of all a symbol of the bonds between Sharenators and the things that can be achieved through teamwork. There are countless examples of such already on the server.

Now imagine those bonds, that determination, that iron will to create in a new fresh untapped environment. The potential is all there, the question is whether or not you'll stick around to take advantage of it.

The next few days will be rough for those of us on the newly formed team running the server, and we're sure it will be rough for those who enjoyed playing on it. We will be uploading the most recent 3 backup saves we had as soon as we have access to them so anyone can download them here.

We thank all of you for choosing to have spent time on our server, and hope that in the future you'll return to us during the Revival Period.

With Love,

This is for the record...
...Your only upset because we can buy our eggs in Malta for 7 cents a piece, then sell them here for 5 cents a piece at a profit.

Good day.

    That is something else, really cool. Only one question: what are the black things

    To think of all that's happened in just 4 months...
    It's disturbing how quickly things can change.
    - Dawn October 4, 2011, 9:56 am
    Yeah, it really is. I enjoy the changes to a point, but I've looked back and remembered my first join and everything since and just reminisced about it. It's also quite amazing to look at bridges burned and new connections, and those who stuck with us and those who didn't. I almost miss it, but then I remember talltale...
    - Darkhour October 4, 2011, 12:22 pm
    No need to be bringing up names. Those of us who did what we did got what we got, and that's the end of that. Anyone who actually plays on our server already knows well enough, there is no reason to drag it onto Sharenator too.
    - Dawn October 4, 2011, 3:28 pm
    Agreed ;)

    Bumpity? I see nothing here explaining the new world? Maybe and edit for I thought thats what you were doing, correct me if I'm wrong.

    hes giving an update of how the minecraft is fucked up
    - fatbill May 13, 2011, 1:50 pm
    Hmm? I don't know what you are referring to. I was referring to the conversation that I, Dawn, and the other mods had that decided the fate of the server. She has now updated that conversation here, which is what I was asking about.
    - Darkhour May 13, 2011, 2:45 pm
    never mind :) you probably know more than i do

    I was so confused when I got on. I was pretty pissed about it and they didn't do anything to me but kill my dog :'(
    But I can't wait to help rebuild with y'all, I hope we can make it a fun experience and prove those assholes wrong :D

    Make it a private white list server, only add sharenators to the list =]

    From what I understand (I can't be sure exactly what she'll do, we only the one conversation), It will be whitelisted, at least in the beginning. Also, there are some non-sharenators on there that have done nothing wrong (from what we can tell), while we can't rule out the possibility of the greifer being from sharenator. It's a fickle situation, which is why we recommended she look into plugins such as towny and chest protect as an alternative to straight up whitelisting. Don't get me wrong, if we find out who did it, they would be banned in a heart beat, but until then, other measures have to be taken. (Dawn, if I'm wrong on any of this, feel free to butt in and correct me, I'm just trying to answer as best I can.) Also, are you even on the server? I'm just curious as I don't recall any claiming they were you.

    I just started on the server, so I'm guessing there's no point me building a base or anything until you get the new one up and running then?

    • May 15, 2011, 3:51 am
    Sadly no, and the new one is taking extra time as Servercraft and us try and work out what went wrong. (Servercraft is being slow to respond D=<)

    Is the server down right now? I can't get past the logging in screen.

    It seems to be, but we can't even get through to the control panel to work on it yet. We're starting to lose our patience with Servercraft as a hosting company and threatening that if action is not taken within the next 12 hours we will take our buisness elseware, so hopefully that will at the least speed things up a little. The server would still be down for at least another day or two however, as at first only Admins and Mods will be allowed onto it to work on preparations for everyone else's arrival later on.
    - Dawn May 15, 2011, 8:49 am
    Aw man. Alright well I hope everything goes smooth and as fast as possible. Good luck :D

    Reporting in. If you wish to communicate another way, I have other means (such as email, but I'd rather not broadcast that piece of information over the internet...)
    - Darkhour May 15, 2011, 12:01 pm
    I would like to be one, but im not sure if you would allow that.

    Could you hop back on real quick?... Or get AIM?
    - Dawn May 15, 2011, 12:11 pm
    It's already been decided, sorry.

    Yeah, but i need to restart my comp before getting on
    - Darkhour May 15, 2011, 12:14 pm
    Darn it... I have absolutely nothing else to do... Lol.

    Hey Dawn. It's Caleb2233. I was hoping I could help with the rebuilding of the server. Do you think that would be okay?
    - Caleb22 May 15, 2011, 7:11 pm
    Sorry, as we said the team's already been decided. But you'll be told when it's open to everyone again. Simply wait for the update here on Sharenator.

    Everytime it try to get in it says disconnected by server, kicked by admin

    Only select people can get in right now. Dawns playing with the plug ins, and soon we will start prebuilding. So until all of that is finished, most people will not be able to get in.

    It definitely wasn't me because I don't have my own Minecraft account. Luke8D was going to buy me it for my birthday, but didn't. :/

    Yes, I know hash's password etc, but I only logged in once (and killed him by accident lol)

    when is the server going to back up?

  • 1

    Ok... Who the fuck destroyed the server?

    No one, if you would care to read Dawn's post throroughly or my comments, a lot would be explained.
    Here, I found what you're probably looking for:

    "After consulting with our most trusted moderators and mods-to-be that were on, the server is going to be turned off shortly, then restarted. And by restarted, we mean a brand new fresh and shiny, un-touched server/world. Then we're going to work on it for 2-3 days preparing it for use again with a better system and layout then before, and make it public again."

    "Only select people can get in right now. Dawns playing with the plug ins, and soon we will start prebuilding. So until all of that is finished, most people will not be able to get in."

    Another note to add is that it may take longer than the previously thought 2-3. I can not be sure that will happen, though, only time will tell.
    - Darkhour May 17, 2011, 11:54 am
    Unfortunately it does seem to be. The goal right now is for Friday at the latest. Although we are once again having difficulties so it may be extended even further.

    When will the server be public again?
    - TechnoMusic May 20, 2011, 1:37 pm
    Hopefully soon, at the latest the start of next week. But our programming pair have disappeared it seems.
    - Dawn May 20, 2011, 1:41 pm
    Well nice if your getting all the plugins then i will definitely just play on your server. I can suggest some plugins as i also had ot look into them to protect the server once and found what works better? I could also help you in anyway?
    - buddyfoeva May 20, 2011, 1:55 pm
    Soon as in today? Or like a few days? lol You keep extending the time period by a crap load every time I check.

    Psst Dawn, I can donate like $8 since I have that spare. Want it?

  • 1

    Dude when the funk is this shit going back up? lol

    We're having problems locating the programmers... So I think we're gonna go ahead a skip the plugins, build what we can and ship out the new world soon. Keep in mind, I'm not the final authority on this, and am only saying what I know/heard/remember.
    - Darkhour May 22, 2011, 7:54 pm
    Ah that makes sense. Why don't you guys talk to Buddyfoeva? He is really good with plug-ins.
    - TechnoMusic May 22, 2011, 8:23 pm
    We have nothing against him, but we don't really trust him to much as we don't know him.

    Thanks, Caleb2233

    Try checking the other minecraft post I have? I had Dark explain that, although the bans will be lifted tomorrow... for now...
