    TL;DR. We got hacked! If you had a forum account, we advise you to sign-in to your forum account and change it, as well as your Minecraft account password IF both passwords were the same!

    Hello Craftvians,

    A few days ago, one of our administrator accounts were breached, including their Minecraft account. After we've fixed the situation relating to MC account, the users who breached the MC account also got a hold of the forum account of the admin.

    They've caused no damage but trolled the forums with silly "Hacked By" posts, as well as attempt to delete threads. Thankfully, our permissions are pretty strict and you can only soft delete threads as a staff member, so we was able to restore any deleted threads.

    We do not know what kind of data these users had access too. They've admitted to have access to our users and their passwords, and it could be true. After a day of the breach, they got through one of the moderator accounts and attempted to delete threads again and posted a few threads as well.

    To hopefully remedy this situation, we've did the following:

    • Updated the forums to the latest version.
    • Force password change to all forum accounts.
    • Demoted all moderators and admins on the forums. We're now requiring all current and future staff members to enable two-step verification on the forums before their promoted.
    • Other internal security measures have been put in placed.
    • We're also looking into more security in-game for our...

    CraftBlock Weekly
    Issue #54
    Hello everyone, and welcome to another issue of the CraftBlock Weekly! There's nothing particularly surprising in this Weekly, but things are about to get interesting soon, so stay tuned!

    Server Update Extremely Soon
    Since I haven't been insanely active this past week, I'm not entirely in touch, but I've heard that the server reset and update is going to happen extremely soon, as it is almost May already. If you have any questions about this reset, please check out the Server Reset FAQ (which can also be accessed via /faq in-game). I'm excited for a fresh start! :chip

    Vehicles
    @NintendoFrosty has been working hard on improving vehicles on Beta! For a little taste of the more customized vehicles that Nin's been working on, here's a preview of the "Eco-Friendly Car," made of leaf blocks. It's my personal favorite of what he's made so far. ^_^ The rest of the vehicles will have to be a surprise, so get excited!

    Build Move Order
    Build moves are usually pretty chaotic, so in order to keep everyone in control, we're going to start moving the builds of higher ranks first, and then work our way down to the lower ranks on the server. This makes it more...

    Build Competition #7: Nature Submissions!​


    BlackishVelvet's Tree Heart!

    [​IMG]

    Submission: So This is a basically a tree that is formed like a heart as branches, and as you notice there is a fire between the heart so it means burning love. I chose this design since i can show the beauty of nature and how can it be interpreted. I had a great time building this.. (P.S. I used Shaders) Check out their post here for more!


    Morris2017's Giant Tree!

    Submission: A giant tree with under the ground a place where there will be info about the tree and how the tree gets his water, I also built a visitor area to look. Check out their post here for more!

    CraftBlock Weekly
    Issue #53
    Hello everyone, and welcome to the 53rd issue of the CraftBlock Weekly! Nothing earth-shattering happened this week, but there's no harm in catching up on what happened. :p Anyway, let's get right into it!

    TokenEnchant
    Along with all the other cool stuff we plan to ship out to you soon, Beta will have a cool new plugin called TokenEnchant installed! This plugin allows you to purchase enchantments for your items with "tokens" that you would acquire in-game. You'd be able to enchant things normally, but earning enchantments for yourself rather than leaving it to chance sounds pretty rad to me. I'm not sure of the specifics myself, but this plugin has some very in-depth configurations going for it! If you'd like to see these for yourself, check out the plugin's Spigot page if you're interested. Happy enchanting, everyone!

    Enchantment Room
    In addition to the above, we've made a cool room in Beta where you can use TokenEnchant! Using /warp enchantroom, I was teleported to a gorgeous enchanting chamber created by @WaffleRaws and set up to work with the plugin by @Mattman096! Thank them for all their hard work! The area feels more like a little shopping mall for enchantments rather than a "room." :p Here's a sneak peek of a...

    CraftBlock Weekly
    Issue #52
    Hello everyone, and welcome to this week's edition of the CraftBlock Weekly! Not much has happened this week, but for the sake of being on a regular schedule and delivering content to you guys in the promised intervals (hence "weekly"), I figured I'd write up a quick summary of the week for everyone to absorb with their eyeballs. Anyway, kick back with a bag of chips and enjoy!

    Weekly Digest
    This certainly isn't the best news, but it's important to keep you guys updated as to what's going on inside. For a moment we had an ImageToMap plugin installed, which lets you import images into maps that can be shown in item frames, but it took up a lot of space on the server, so we decided to remove it. It would have been a cool decoration, but unfortunately, it takes up a lot of space both world-wise and entity-wise. Sorry guys. :/

    Eberglades
    Now that we've got our weekly fix of depression out of the way, let's get onto some more promising server information updates. Speaking of promise, @iessjca is working on Eberglades, a town that will succeed New Sheoth on the new server! I don't know how many people this applies to, but seeing as New Sheoth was popular, I only saw it fitting to let everyone know. :3 Good luck, Jess!

    Rapture
    Since we're on the subject of towns, I'd also like to mention that...
