Long time no see :P
We are having a bit of a shakeup at Kindred. I have changed a few of the channels in discord, to separate server chat from chat about anything else. It is afterall, meant to be a server discord. General chit chat like hi, how ya doing etc is fine in server chat.... but chat about other games, other game platforms hobbies etc, need to go in the general chat.
The next thing i am doing is looking at homes and houses of players who have not logged in for over a month. Inactive homes will be cleared, and inactive player data will be cleared. The reason for this, is that the plugin we use to store information such as who break blocks, who places blocks, grief information etc is around 13GB alone, and is using up a major portion of storage space. Once i have done this, i can choose a lower server plan, making it cheaper for me to keep kindred open.
Further changes MAY occur, such as removal of bungee system, reverting back to survival only server. Going to bungee was when we lost our bigger playing base. This is still only an option at this point.
I hope we start seeing some players come back, or our community growing again.
