band-aids don't fix bullet holes server errors
While the server went down last night, it underwent sombande maintenance to try and fix the underlying issues. However, unbeknownst to the staff, the backups that were made of certain server databases were corrupted, resulting in a mySQL error that we were not able to fix and resulted in deletion of user files for McMMO, LWC (chests/furnaces), Protection Stones, and Virtual Chests.
We know that this has happened before and that you all must be sick and tired of this happening time after time. For that we are truly sorry. We know how much of your hard work and time you all put into this server and we appreciate every player. But sometimes mistakes and errors happens and you all deserve better than mistakes and errors.
Because it wouldn't be feasible to replace every player's McMMO stats, we have enabled MCMMO DOUBLE (2X) EXPERIENCE for the time being and will be doing tons of giveaways and drop parties including McMMO Reward Chests throughout the next week or so. We hope that you can make the most of this opportunity and get reinvested in the competition to reach /mctop.
Protection Stones and chest protections were also affected by the mySQL error. So, for the safety of your items and builds, REPLACE ALL PROTECTION STONES YOU HAD PLACED AND re-/lock ALL YOUR CHESTS, FURNACES, ETC. (Tip: If you use /cpersist before typing /lock, you can save yourself a lot of time.)
Finally, the last thing affected by this is VirtualChest, which you might know as the plugin for /chest, /furnace, /brew, etc. We know you're all too used to this plugin's data resetting and as such we highly advise you not to use this plugin for storing your valuables as convenient as it might be. We will continue to use the plugin, but physical chests are always the safest option.
Your homes and balances are all as they were, there was no error there. Again, we are truly sorry for the inconvenience that was caused and we will use this as a learning experience to take extra precaution when handling server data and to make sure that your info is safe.
If you need help ingame, remember to use /mods and a staff member will be there to assist you as soon as possible.
