    It seems we can not self host a server for Discord. There is no support for it currently and doesn't look to be for the future it's hosted on the Discord public servers. But anyway, here as wanted is our discord server, official server that is! https://discord.gg/ZABkBWV Enjoy guys

    This is the first announcement of a few of some of the upcoming interesting and exciting events happening on JR as we speak! Website First of all, we have a new exciting change to our website as we are redesigning the look and feel to be a bit easier to use, it's more simplistic and we are working on all areas so it'll be quicker to load and more intuitive. If you'd like to try the new look and feel be my guest. It's publicly available but still in beta. To enable this new look and feel at the bottom of the website you will find a Change Theme. Click on JR anniversary and you are signed up to the beta programme immediately. I have changed multiple things around the site and you will see them kick in, such as colorful usernames around the site, a menu bar which changes when you scroll. A back to the top scroll link. Updates to our mobile website to get more mobile and more! Any changes I make will be on JR Anniversary. Security JR takes security very seriously and we have now enabled two factor authentication, this allows you to setup security questions as well as use Google Authenticator which is a mobile app that quickly gives you a code when you sign in to JR. I am personally very excited for this change. If you are a staff member please note that you have to setup some form of two factor authentication due to website security. If you have logged in to JR today being a member you will have likely already setup this method due to our notification system. If you have not please make sure you enable it as this will give you a second line of defence. You can modify this method or enable it here: https://jrnetwork.net/settings/account-security/ Server JR is committed to speed up and keep it's servers secure. This is why in the next 6 months we will be switching to PHP 7 for all our webservers. Please note if you have a website that doesn't support PHP 7 yet you may want to look at updating your website if it's hosted by JR's hosting services. We have also made a few tweaks and updates to our servers to make them a little faster and handle better. In the next 12 months we will be upgrading our hardware and switching servers. While we have a method for this to be seamless it may cause a little downtime of up to an hour at max. A mass mail will be sent out to everyone stating that we will be changing servers just before we do so. Staff Grouping I will be changing how staff is grouped soon to make it easier for members of the public to understand. While Admins and Moderators will be still around I will be removing gaming staff, website team, content manager to make things more easy and more friendly. Instead of dividing the team I'd like the team to be involved with every service and if you meet a staff member that is moderator or admin, they will be on every server instead of only Minecraft. Gaming While gaming is our main outlet, Minecraft is not. I will be continuing on the updating of Minecraft but we will be pursuing other areas of games, We don't foresee removing any of our gaming servers but we will be adding more and strengthening the services that we provide. Conclusion We all are trying to make JR a better place. I hope these changes and this news article will cement some understanding on everything going on behind the scenes with myself and some of the other team. We will make JR into a better place for gaming and technology. There will be more coming soon and any news for JR will be posted on the News area and not in the forum. We want to hear what you have to say Please post in the comments what you think of JR, it's changes. Features you like and don't like. Every comment will be looked at and we will attempt to use all the suggestions we get in someway. Thanks for staying at JR and if you are new. Welcome to the JR Network.

    Remember that post I made about my upcoming fanfiction? Well, here it is! I've been posting it on many sites, and I remembered there was a small amount of interest for it here on JR, so I figured I'd post it here as well. This is the only post I will make for the story. Whenever I update, I will edit this post and add a chapter in. Therefore, you may want to check periodically to see if a new chapter is out. Anyway, even if you don't know much about Dragon Ball Z, give it a try! It's certainly possible to read fandom blind and just treat it like another story. Let me know what you guys think, giving constructive criticism or just general feedback! Chapter 1:

    I see JR has a teamspeak and mumble server but the new thing now is discord, free easy to use, easy to set up permissions. I am just throwing it out there that JR gets a discord channel then I know for me I would be on that alot more and can get to talk to people a lot more.

    As all of you know we have been working hard on the new look and feel of the website as well as a few different features. To show my dedication to JR I will be releasing a change log to JR every time I update and edit features as soon as I have finished testing and released features. You can view the change log by visiting the JR Development Blog. I hope that you enjoy seeing the progress I make on the website, if you have a few minutes please reply in the forum topic below with some feedback! Thanks to all! <3

    Discord is in my opinion superior to the lot. Was on it when it first came out and haven't looked back. It is so easy to manage, share and connect. I hope the consoles will actually add them so cross-platform players won't have to have multiple devices running to get connected. Am using it mostly for Final Fantasy XIV groups, but there is a great social aspect to it.
