    I have not been able to check if people play lately i have been busy either at work or moving but i fear that ther is no one playing the server whether this be from glitch or from lack of interest if it is for a glitch (jojo i am aware of yours) i can go on and fix it for you i have not totally given up but if people are not playing for lack of interest and do not give me a way to spice it up i am beginning to fail to see why i should continue to pay for the server. I will not give up as long as people play but if i am paying for a dead server it is money i can use elsewhere.
    I am sorry for this note but it is true let me know before i lose all hope in renewing it when it becomes time to renew.

      So it has been decided that the server will not be renewed in december unless one of following conditions are met:
      1 someone donates enough to cover the server for $42 a month
      2 someone with history with the server without conflict of interest wants to assist with maintenance and ideas to revive the server maybe including some assistance with the bills
      3 someone with history and knowledge of the server (essentially staff) would like to help maintain the server i would be willing to continue the bills

      I am open to suggestions or barters to keep the server going but as of now i cannot justify the server when it appears to be dead or close to it besides a few veteran players.

      If the server is not renewed the forums will go down as well though i at this time plan to keep the IP for at least a year in case we wish to revive it. The IP will not be sold to anyone should one of the above conditions be met i would like to maintain partial status the server would not be sold unless the new owner could prove themselves. All data is being backed up as i type this and will be kept on my PC certain information may be given out with justification the server will not be handed out for one being the size of it

      sounds like we have a player willing to donate to keep the server open if we can make half of the monthly bill (server only the rest is cheap enough) i will keep the server rolling if we can make more than half awesome i will do what i can to make a bar to say how much we have accumulated

      I am willing to return as well, I started a local server with some friends 2 weeks ago and I am pretty sure they would not mind switching to a more reliable server. We can Skype sometime this week to discuss it further ;)

      3 of my friends cannot join my personal server, so I think it is a win win if we all join on BoS. I have some time tonight to check that out! I can check if we can bump to 1.12 too, most plugins seem to have been updated. I'll be on slack if you still have it, else PM and I'll get on skype ;)!

      I've never left the server, just my logging in was a little intermittent for a while.

      As much as it absolutely kills me to say it, we all know it's not the server that's the problem. It's Minecraft. The game has become a dead husk of what it once was. Unless we plan on converting BoS into a giant minigame realm server that caters to hormonal 12 year olds, we all know damn well what's coming next. As one of Beacon's oldest and most dedicated members, it brings legitimate tears to me eyes to say this, but... Save your money NJ.

      thanks guard that was well put
      i will give the server two options before it runs out of time in december either players can return and i will keep it running for them or i recieve half a month server rent and will match that half to continue another month

      One of the things that I was thinking was that I will have a computer by then that would be strong enough to host the server, and my bandwidth is enough that it would be playable. As long as NJ could help me with maintenance, I could probably keep it running.
