I attempted to update the server to 1.3 tonight, but unfortunately things didn't go as planned. No data was lost, and the map is intact.. However, this makes the server completely unplayable for most players. Until an update is published or I can find a workaround, I've got no choice but to keep it offline. I'm not expecting this to last more than a day or two, but I can't make promises on this! I'm sorry about this unexpected turn of events.
In the meanwhile, if you want to keep in touch with the other players, the chatroom remains available to use. You can also drop by the message board to talk about either Minecraft, video games or other unrelated topics!
