Welcome to the New Website
Hello and Welcome to the new website!
Please be sure to look around and let us know what you think! There are many new sections to explore and a lot to read over. If you find any issues or have feedback, please don't hesitate to let us know!
You will notice that the server's status can easily be identified from almost any page within the website! We wanted to make it easy for people to check the status rather than guess if something is going on. All known issues will be posted to the front page of the website where they will remain until rectified. Note that we can't always identify or post them up immediatly.
Each server will have its own section on the website. Keep in mind that they may be subject to name change or content change at any time, we will always do our best to keep the pages up to date. Hints, Tricks and Tips will be kept up to date for each as well as any live maps or other features we decide to offer.
The Premium & VIP System is undergoing some minor changes. In the past we have simply listed what we offer without regard to what server offers what. No More! We will further describe and associate features and benefits so that you understand what you are receiving. We want to ensure that our supporters don't feel cheated, as has happened in the past.
We are changing some policies internally to try to smoothen the process on some servers. The Main change is that on the LDShadowlady Server. Where a grief has occured, moderators may choose to repair and replace broken/stolen items for you. They can't build you houses and give you free stuff though, so please don't ask
Cross-System Login: You are now shown as logged in when browsing the new section of the website. Details are the same as forums! (You may need to logout and log back in to get it working the first time) Front Page News Feed: We used to have a very basic front page news feed that never looked or felt right. This is a new custom coded module, so it's all as we want it instead of what we can find to use. Mobile Friendly: The entire new website is Mobile-Friendly, meaning that you can check the status of servers and commands on your Phone or Tablet. SEO Friendly: The Website is fully Search Engine Friendly; That should make finding us a bit easier Full-Featured FAQ: We are trying to keep our FAQ up to date, it will cover all servers as well as the website and general broad questions. If you have a suggestion of something that needs to be listed there, let us know! Full Documentation: All legal documents have been updated to reflect any changes that have occured since their last update as well as clarify on existing documents that were never properly finished. Forum Quick Links: Wherever you are, there are links in the header to the most visited sections of the forums, that way you can always switch through without having to load the index page a hundred times! Advertising Space: We are removing banner ads from everywhere on the website except for the designated advertising space on the bottom of the page. If you see anything you like feel free to click through, it helps us, however don't feel pressured into doing so for our sake. Guides: You will notice that servers have their own guides for getting started or doing specific things. These can be really helpful if you or someone you know needs some help. Issue Tracker: If there is a major issue or outage with the server(s) we will post it on the front page of the website under the issue tracker
COMING SOON: The forums will be undergoing an overhaul to match the website, this shouldn't take too much longer to complete! COMING SOON: The HardCore Server will be making a return, more details will follow in coming weeks, we expect it to be a lot more fun in the past and give you something to play for a while.

I hope you enjoy what I have enjoyed making, it has been a long couple of weeks keeping most of it under wraps and holding off the release, but here it is. We will adapt the website and fill in the blanks as we have more information on certain servers or features.
Some features may seem broken or incomplete, this is likely due to design as we are waiting for certain modules before those features can be enabled.
