Hey guys,

As you all know, I haven't been very active lately. I don't want to go into the reasons for this, but suffice to say that the server has suffered while I've been away. I just want to make something clear: I have not abandoned LuckyPrison and have no plans to do so in the future.

Late this week, advertisements for LuckyPrison will go live on the two largest Minecraft server list websites. The total expense was $8,000 -- just to highlight the fact that I am investing a lot of effort and resources in LuckyPrison.

Here are the actions I am taking:
  • Staff Recruitment: please apply here.
  • Incorporating suggestions from the Suggestion Thread; updates to be released on Friday.
  • Increasing moderation on the forum.
  • Fixing the persistent lag issue.
As always, I am looking for more feedback on my approach, so feel free to comment with your suggestions. I'm particularly interested in suggestions on the following categories: what to add to the online store; custom plugin suggestions; Discord vs. Teamspeak; etc.

Thanks guys, and make sure to tell your friends about the revival! It's for real this time: we'll have a huge, steady, and consistent influx of players starting Thursday/Friday, a brand new and active staff team, and critical fixes / suggestions implemented.

Hello,

I have created a LuckyPrison Discord.

It can be found here: https://discord.gg/YMtpyUV

Additionally, I'll have office hours on there in the Customer Support channel from 6 to 7 PM EST daily.

Thank you,

Hello all,

I am making this post to clear a few things up and provide some updates.
  • As you all know, our Staff Manager recently departed. This was a result of her demanding payment due to a promotion with no added responsibility. Paying a large number of people massive salaries is part of the reason Adam had to sell the server. She will be replaced immediately; there is no shortage of people who would do all of her tasks for free because they genuinely enjoy the server and want it to improve.
  • Staff applications will be done via Google Forms soon and only the best candidates will be selected. I am redoing the staff system as we speak; it will be more simplified and effective.
  • Our current low player numbers are the result of two things: no advertising and a small blunder on my part. I forgot to update LuckyPrison's protocol hack plugin to the latest version, which meant that players on the latest version of Minecraft couldn't connect. I've fixed this issue. As for advertising, I have something planned that will ensure consistently high player numbers.
  • Lastly, I will be incorporating the community's suggestions on a rolling basis throughout the months of January and February. If you would like to see your suggestion implemented, please make a post here. I'll read each and every one.
Thank you,
Thugcrew
Hey friends,

I didn't want to leave out before I said "See ya later." I am leaving the LP community as staff. I may visit from time to time to say hello. I am starting back to school tomorrow! #GoodbyeBreak... My goal is to either get a paying part time job in the afternoons or join a similar online community that can pay me a bit for the work that I do. I had a couple offers but want to find the right community for me. My history here as been almost as long as LP has been open and I am so glad I spent my time here. I made so many friends.

I will never forget how people yelled my name in chat each and every time I logged in. I felt so loved. <3 Okay, maybe you just wanted your keys! :p

@ECaptain - Thank you for finding me and bringing me into Eden. I didn't fit in, I didn't understand your... language and I wasn't sure I needed to join but it turned out to be a good thing. I wouldn't have built so many relationships and found my new little bro @EScubaJoe! Oh... and PS Cap you really do care... <3

@Packet - OMG dude. You are legit one of the smartest ## year olds I know. You will go far and you will do amazing things! Don't forget to slow down and enjoy it because the next 10 years of your life will FLY! Trust me...

@Fred... I <3 you man... and I don't even know why. Keep being you and keep your head held high.

@Rexe243 @Jas @Scuba @_dig @Nathan @Luey @Toadette1218 @Maxwell and so many others... I <3 you guys!

See you guys soon!

Hello all,

LuckyPrison will be resetting on Thursday, December 22nd. I will be reverting back to an older version of LuckyPrison with fewer bugs.

The reset will include:
  • Donor mines
  • Fixed coupons/vouchers
  • Fixed Buycraft issues (people not getting ranks when purchasing)
  • Fixed staff permissions
  • Advertising (high player numbers)
  • ...and more.
Also, I'd like to apologize for being inactive. I had school work and final exams to attend to.

Thanks for reading,
Thugcrew
