    Long story short, I configured the Factions server a couple of weeks back. Unfortunately it has barely been touched since then.

    It was absolutely rushed out. I originally did not intend to open it up to players so soon. I got antsy once it was up and running and thought it'd be fun to get some of our veteran players in sooner (who have been asking for more PvP options for ages).

    The problem is the weekend I opened up the server I ended up being extremely busy.. as was the next week.. then the holiday week. So basically, I apologize for letting you guys into a beta and then ignoring it. I intended to give it more attention than I have. It also explains why there has been minimal communication from us about the beta. I didn't really get a chance to fill staff in on my plans either.

    I've throw up two sections so we can funnel in Factions related ideas in a more organized fashion.

    It'd be helpful if you guys could be clear about what's needed immediately to make the server more viable, and "nice to have" ideas that could wait for a bit. That'd help us prioritize.

    Will the items, money and land be saved when the factions server finishes beta (if it does)? Is there some kind of information post that I missed?

    No. Beta servers are always wiped once the beta is over.

    Thanks Octa, been looking forward to a factions server for ages but without the work being done on it I can tell why people aren't gonna be playing the beta for a bit until it's properly shown to the OMM network. One question though, from the beta I can see there aren't any custom plug-ins, are there gonna be some of the custom plug-ins? And also chats need to be fixed, I don't think /gl is a thing on Beta.

    Good luck and hope you had a good holiday week although I don't celebrate Thanksgiving :)

    What version of Minecraft is factions running on currently (1.10, 1.9...)?
    I would like to know because many mechanics, items and entities change with each major update.
