    Yeah, shocker and if you clicked readmore I'm guessing your wanting to know more. So why am I leaving? JR has been great yes, but in another aspect view It has been the worst time of my life. Since I started JR in school, when I was 13 I worked on JR constantly till now. It ruined my education, a good relationship with my parents and it's getting in the way of something more meaningful to me. I'm tired, I'm constantly upset and I have had no time because what ever I do, JR was always there needing my assistance. I have been sucked in to the deep end and it's been so hard to get out of the internet is great, but when you work on it for most of your teenage life after your teenage life is over you finally realize that damn, I have missed so damn much. What's going to happen to JR? Even though I started JR, I'm not shutting it down, all JR related services will be left open and they will be handled by the staff team that I have built. We have already talked in the staff meeting and yes while the staff did get slightly shocked, and possibly teary I believe that they will come out of my shadow and show JR what a staff team really is. A couple of heart felt mentions: Kevin: You mate have helped make JR what it is today, JR was originally going to be about everything while you gave me the idea to build something different a better gaming and technology community. I believe with all the goals, plans and ideas we had together. This was the main one and we did it dude. I'd like to say sorry to you as well because in time JR got in the way of our friendship and it got in the way of your life, especially when I came to yours for a little fun at times, it turned termoil and hell broke loose on JR Ruppi & Peter: I really didn't know who to choose first but since you were promoted to moderator, admin and founder at the same time I believe it's gotta be done this way. JR was made yours as much as I made it mine, you helped me grow, expand and get this community to flourish. It's been a blast and I'm sorry we really haven't socialized since we met. We have never really had one serious conversation about our lives and all it's been is stuff with JR. Thank you for sticking with me for so long, you made things really happen. Leslee & Robert: Leslee You of all people have kept me sane, been a mother to me per say and kept me from the verge of insanity, you helped me beat my depression, you helped me fund what JR is today. Without you of all people I would not have been able to keep running JR for this long. I know your going to try to talk me out of this, but please respect that I need to get my life back. Thank you for helping me in keeping what little of my life I have left. I hope you will be able to understand even though I know you most of all will be the mos upset why I have to do this. Robert: you wanted a friendly server to play on, because you felt it was too hard to run one, I'm glad I was there to provide that for you and your family, thanks for been a hardworking admin when your job allowed. Calystos: You mate have been brilliant, while I didn't want to let you down and leave I have to mate. Thank you for been there when I first started, for helping us evolve with all our gaming servers and for keeping us online when I needed someone way past my expertise, I just hope you can help JR still and I hope you enjoy it Joe, Ryan, Joesph, Tim and Evonne It wouldn't be fair if I singled you guys out, you all worked insanely hard for me, you made me proud to say that you worked on my admin team. Damian Scheck: No I didn't forget you mate, You helped create JR when we started too, even though you had college and not enough time eventually for JR, it's worth noting I'm glad I helped you learn english as I remember you came to JR to learn and I know your pretty decent at talking english now Callum & Abby: JR always was my dream to bring people together, but I never thought that in a million years I could start a relationship from two seperate people in two different countries. It's amazing to me that I brought you two together, I hope that for me, you won't have any issues in your relationship and thanks to both of you for working on JR so hard. Moderators & Helpers: To date you guys have had one of the most important and influential roles on JR, you have moderated, kept cool heads and while yes at times we all had our disagreements. Thank you for helping me out at JR. MCBlock.IT & Planet Minecraft Team: While JR has been a part of my life, you guys also came in to the field too tied with JR, I'm sorry to say that I'm also taking leave of my responsibilities at the two sites and thank you guys for giving me a chance to contribute to the projects. Guys, don't ever blame yourselves for me leaving, this was not sparked off from anyone but me. It's hard to stop something like this but it's time I took my leave and that I have the time to get my entire life back on track For the people who said JR died it hasn't its more alive than ever, for the people who said it will die, it won't it'll keep running I'm sure. Will I return ever? I can't say, simple It's too hard to guess but in my view in passing yes but as in getting back on the team, no. I'm sorry but it was going to come to this sometime, My life or JR. For all the members that joined JR, payed donations, kept JR fun thank you. I appreciate it and I hope that you too will understand why.

    Helpers (The guys to talk to first): - Guiding you around JRNetwork and JRCraft / JRTekkit - Kicking users that are causing issues on JRCraft / JRTekkit - Tutorials on small things and information Moderators (The guys to talk to second): - Website reports are dealt with by these users - Problematic users causing spam, distress, annoyance around JR - Fixing grief reports around JRCraft and JRTekkit (If you have a report don't ask a member of staff just do ./report (little information on report) - Cleaning up bits of land on JRCraft, JRTekkit that look a mess. - Advanced help, worldguard moderation - Banning users breaking the rules - Events setting up Admins and Founders (The big guys that you should talk to lastly) - Website issues, maintenance - Decisions on perma bans and unbans - Staff internal moderation (Admins control helpers and moderators) - Issues that can not be resolved by talking to Moderators - Server reboots (If necessary and are given authentication by Jamie) - News posts - Decision making on events that hand out prizes - Literally every other question Me, Jamie, rebel24, The Owner / Boss (The person you only talk to in a REAL emergency) I'm not going to bother making a list with this, I have so many responsibilities its unbelievable. Right now on my task list that my staff members use to notify me of things that need getting done is huge. And why have I not been able to sort out these things on my task list? Because constantly I'm harassed by users on skype that think just because they have my skype can contact me a hundred times a day asking for this and that, I'm also constantly asked in JRCraft and JRTekkit to handle little things and also via email. Please remember I'm one guy. We have staff members for a reason. From now on if users try to contact me via personal information that I have given them I will send them this one link and then if they carry on it'll be an instant block from my contact list. Look I really don't want to be mean but I don't have time anymore to be helping everyone with everything. I need to have more of a life than JR. Remember this phrase: If you think it's an easy fix contact a helper first, it probably is Thanks for understanding!

    Jamie has recently installed a new functionality, called Groups, which are very similar to Facebook pages. Groups allow you to gather people with common interests and share tid bits. In a sense, Groups are also like forum topics, but a lot better! In addition, Jamie has also: - Removed the global side bar because "it was annoying" - Multiple actions are displayed when you select a message in your personal messages Jamie is working on the forums and an applet as we speak, but in the near future he will be adding: - New gaming servers for JR - Calendars for each server (a long with events) - An events team to manage the events for each server That is all I can really tell you because it is all Jamie has told me so far. Some of you may even consider this to be general knowledge, but the Boss man told me post this news article. You can't argue with the boss man, no one can. Anyway, have a nice day

    Daily i see new topics, and many of them is about some simple questions which you should very easily be able to get a answer for if you just use a minute to ask in the chat in-game. Please avoid doing this, we just end up with a forum filled with topics which only required a single post to solve. Also, if you got a project (like a city or something) which you post a topic about, then please try to keep all discussion about the project in that topic. Do not make a new topic in which you ask people to help/vote/something else for a topic that you already got up. Instead, you should edit the title of your first topic. To do this, go to the first post you made in that topic and press the "Edit" button at the bottom of it, after that, press the "Use Full Editor" button which is also found at the bottom of the post. This way you will be able to edit the title and everything! However, if you do ask in the in-game chat, and was not able to get an answer, or if you need peoples opinion on something, then surely you are free to post whatever topics you want on the forum! And last but not least, keep posting ;D We love to see new members getting active on the forums! It might make it a little more fun Best Regards, Qudubz

    We may also put user's usernames on the controller for a small additional fee. So far they will have blue LED's instead of the normal green ones and they will have an airbrushed JR Logo on the design. We are starting with 360 Controllers and maybe selling more types of controllers soon, If people buy the Xbox 360 Controllers we will be starting to sell PS3, Xbox 1 and PS4 controllers also. We do not have full prices and a full design yet, but when we do I will post it up here on JR, Happy Gaming!

    General Information on Repairs Before I start, I want to just mention a couple of things that as a consumer and a power user at computers I'd just like to point out: - When you give the repair shop your computer tell them you don't want any repairs done till you are made aware of the exact problem. - Don't get overcharged. In my book this is happening far too often. Make sure if you have a part replaced you look at the price of the part an easy google search on the Part Number will tell you exactly how much it will cost. Always remember it's fair to be charged, at max 10 euros for delivery of the part but make sure your not being fully ripped off. A little price guide (may change from this post date if stocks are low / high etc) - HDD's are averaging at around 60 - 100 euros for a decent internal HDD with a reasonable size (500 GB +) - SDD's are more expensive ranging from 60 - 400 euros depending on the size - DVD drive replacements would average from 30 - 60 euros depending on the type of drive. Samsung drives are pretty reasonable and can be as low as 20 euros, fitting takes around 10 minutes. - Laptop Screen replacements including the part average from 100 - 200 euros depending on the type of screen fitting takes around 1 - 2 hours. - Computer tune up / speed up would normally average from 40 - 80 euros for a common clean up. - Virus repair and recovery (if windows is not being reinstalled) would average from 50 - 80 euros depending on how hard the virus is to get rid of. - Virus repair and recovery (if windows is being reinstalled) would average from 70 - 100 euros if you have a genuine license underneath the laptop. Image of genuine sticker is below. - Upgrade or fresh install to a new operating system / Programs: Average price for a genuine windows product (current prices below) + 3 to 4 hours labor Windows 7 Home Premium: €95 Windows 7 Pro: €139 Windows 7 Ultimate: €183 Windows 8: €88.57 Windows 8 Pro: €139 When you get an upgrade / new installation make sure you get a sticker like the following, or the box for the OS so you can confirm it's authenticity. (HDD) Hard Drive Repairs The most recent case which has come to light is a laptop that came to me with issues booting, around July 2012 it had a hard drive replacement and the user was charged 120 Euros. To keep myself and the consumer protected I will not be naming this local store. The laptop was not booting due to a faulty hard drive. After contacting the friend who came to me he told me it was just replaced. Under further investigation the harddrive was second hand? How do I know? Well let's just tell you a couple of things about all harddrives. ALL harddrives have a manufacture date, this tipped me off instantly. The harddrive that came out of this laptop had a manafacture date of 12 OCT 2007 and it branded a HP sticker instantly tipping me off that this came out of a older HP laptop. So, my first topic. If you have just had a HDD (Harddrive) replacement be aware that you get what you pay for. You don't want a second hand harddrive that will fail simple. So what's the easiest way to check if the HDD is new? - Download and install Speccy - After installation open up the application and click on the harddrive link on the left hand side - Check the Power on Time (as shown in the image below), if it's new it should report less than around two days. Installation of Windows / Linux There has been countless times where people have contacted me and has issues with a fake copy of windows when they have paid out a lot of money for a supposed genuine copy. Beware with this one. So to begin with check you have a sticker at the bottom stating your version of windows. If you have a sticker stating a different version of windows than you have be aware. All upgrades / new installs should come with this sticker. (Re-installing to the same operating system won't need a fresh sticker since it's okay to use the same license. Just make sure they don't charge over 60 euros for reinstalling. (unless backing your data up, installing other programs for you) Sometimes, you may not be aware that even though you have a genuine sticker you may not have a genuine operating system, the most common form of tampering is through a Windows 7 Loader. To check if you are genuine download the following update: Download link for Win7 32 bit (x84) Download link for Win7 64 bit (x64) The above updates are updates to windows activation technologies which after installation and a couple of reboots if you have been fooled into purchasing a fake copy of windows you will get a notification about the operating system is not genuine. When this happens, take it to the place you got the installation of windows and ask for either a refund or ask them to give you a genuine copy. N.B. Make sure you are never charged for a linux license, linux is free ware and community driven. Hope this helps some consumers, if you do need advice / help feel free to contact me at jamie(at)jrnetwork.net / via a comment below and I will assist you.

    So what's so great about JRCraft V4? It's JRCraft reimagined: - New world - RPG - More events than ever - An amazing, planned out spawn. We have took the best bits from JRCraft in the years, planned out a spawn with them, planned out world locations and have even started to get a RPG story going, which will be continued as we go. We expect a couple of new quests every day/week and more features! We will be working on the new world on release. It will be a work in progress. But stick with us and you will enjoy JR more and more Will the old survival worlds be there? The current "latest" survival, will be there, but will be removed from the economy for RPG reasons on the new build. No builds will be transferred to the new RPG/survival world. This is to stop the world being ruined. You will be able to build in certain free build areas, "in survival mode" but a lot of the server will be quests and stuff to do! We plan to have a new levelling system too and a lot more interesting and cool ideas. This will be the biggest build of JRCraft ever. I haven't been working on it personally, the staff have been doing an amazing job (I taught them well ). I will be taking over some of the work load with plugins and server side things before the release to get that boost and get us up online stable. Prizes? On release, JRCraft will be having some prizes for the biggest voter on the release week a competition and in the release party we will be giving users some start off items, and we will be giving away 2 DOTA2 keys and some more interesting games. Seriously this is gonna be big, so bring your friends and let's have the best opening ever. JRCraft will have a world wide release on the 10th of January, 2013. Be sure to be around to win some of the most amazing prizes and to have some amazing time with us. And yeah, I will be around, we will also be working on a livestream Hope you guys love what we are doing for you It's gonna be awesome so stick around. (Did I mention JR Premium will be half price when we release JRCraft?) €5 per membership for the month!

    Meeting Decisions

    Helper Applicant Age After much consideration, we've moved the age requirement to apply to become a Helper back to 13. Keep in mind that this only means you can _apply_ earlier than this - we still reserve the right to approve/reject applicants at our decision. Donator Ranks We have decided to re-introduce two-level ranks. There are two main reasons for this. We have to pay an entire $401 bill every month, using least of our personal pockets - which is how JR was funded for so long. I summarized the earnings for the past three completed months, and it turns out a major chunk of revenue came from the expensive ranks, rather than the cheaper one. So, we'll still keep the cheaper rank - if anyone wants to buy that; but we'll also introduce a better rank for those who can afford it and would like more perks. More information on this, including the names for them, what they will receive each, etc. will come later on! Purchasing an Unban We have decided to raise the price for purchasing an Unban from $10EUR to $15EUR considering that people will not do this often, and it only goes right back into helping pay for the server. JRPVP Zulu765 has decided he'd like to take up working on JRPVP, so it has been restarted! If you experience any problems with plugins or whatnot, please direct your questions to him, since he is keeping up with JRPVP while I keep up with JRCraft! You can connect to it at uspvp.jrcraft.net:25565! Other Notes SimpleHelpTickets - Helpers will soon be given permissions for SimpleHelpTickets, because it is pointless for them not to be managing this. Also I felt it would be good practice for dealing with Grief Reports if/when they become Mods, since they are handled similarly. Hypereconomy - Will not be added back. This is because it would honestly introduce methods of inflation. People would just sell things to the global shop (the old /buy and /sell) to get money, and then complain when the global shop was out of things to buy, which would be because the global shop only has what has previously been sold to it. Instead, we will use solely ChestShops run by the players to do this. We will be setting up some AdminShops (infinite supply) to sell items that would not otherwise be obtainable usually, such as Ice. Spawn - We are getting a new spawn for JRCraft soon, because we feel that the current one is a bit of a mess and honestly a bit of a letdown after the massive spawn we had previously. More information will be released about this when it is available! MobArena - Has been temporarily disabled again. When the developer updates it for 1.4.4 (the current newest build is for 1.3.3), I will see if it is less buggy. Currently people are loosing inventories from using it again, and this is just a problem with it being outdated and not fixed yet. When it is fixed though, it will be added back in! EDIT: Apologies, it is Zulu765 that has revived JRPVP, not Zolacolor - that was the result of my brain not functioning very late at night whenever it was I typed this up! XD

    NLTekkit ----------- We believe we started Tekkit up to early, we weren't ready, we rushed, (Actually I rushed out the release) and in the end we attracted a lot of attention that we were not ready for, we have security holes that caused massive amounts of consecutive griefing, had issues with plugins, Buildcraft failed after it glitched out due to Logblock and different things around the map. Well, let's just say. We have understood where we went wrong, we have started to reconstruct the entire server, from scratch. After 2 days, we have worked non stop as a team, we (Me and Egeman) have fixed server stability, the server doesn't crash, we have tried everything so far and the only way to crash it would be to regenerate half of the map in one go (Which will never happen) we have really looked in to tekkit to find out where we went wrong before and lets just say, some of the smallest tweaks to the tekkit system have made a huge, huge difference. The map has been reset, yes I know, we don't like resets, but this was a major thing causing server stability, mainly because our rolling back system caused map corruption and therefore, literal puff. Nothing we could do. We have put in place methods now of rolling back that will not cause an issue. Also the map now has a tutorialed spawn to help newbies to tekkit, we have various towns, spawning points that will help you find a spot in the wild. We are hoping to re-release this server tonight. Now, that is if everything is ok. We will be on a beta period for a few days to weeks but we believe as I am writing this, our server is 99% complete in the plugin aspect. We believe the US server will set a new high in stability at JR, so far our tests have proven that we are stable. Due to us having two Tekkit servers, (Cause less lag for the European / american users, based on location) We have also agreed as a team to completely restart the european tekkit. This will be done possibly tomorrow with the same configuration as the US server when we are sure that everything is a - ok. JRPVP ---------- While this server is stable, we didn't rush anything but we believe we missed a couple of things that users want. - Users want to build - Users want to have factions. - Staff will have coloured names. Also due to a hiccup a staff members accedentially spawned diamonds and then everyone got diamond armour etc. - We will be resetting all inventories Therefore outside of the main spawn will be wilderness and have factions. You will then be able to make a faction, make a base and kill, destroy other peoples bases, raid, war, you name it. The ranking system will stay the same with you gaining ranks as you PVP. You won't need to register at JR for this world but for platinum features you will have to have an account. JRCraft ----------- We believe change is good, so far we haven't really re-arranged JR Craft. We at this time believe we will have a real turn around to JRCraft. Fixing several bugs with our chat, listing systems and we will be re-arranging some plugins to make things easier. We will also be removing the loginhub and we will setup a new survival world with the login hub. The old survival that is currently on will stay, with inventorys linked to the new world so you will be able to either move your stuff over, or alternativly start from scratch. - More ideas will come to mind and when we do start work on JRCraft we will post a big bug fix and information set. We hope you will understand what we are doing and why we are going to do this. This is the future. We will be completely focused on our main points. We will be stable, we will be feature packed and we will have no lag. Simple. Time to work our arses off, ETA's on completion for each project will be posted when we have a full feature list down, NLTekkit US has an eta of tonight at midnight or later. Enjoy JR, Jamie

    What are we doing to resolve the issue's that happened today and to improve how we run JR? We have renewed and re-installed the old server that was been used for JRCraft originally. We are moving all the steam servers to this server currently. This will remove load off our website server meaning that if we have a steam server issue it won't have an impact on the website as well. We are changing our http daemon to nginx from apache which is better in terms of security and stability. - DONE We are checking our servers for any security flaws and patching anything that looks out of the ordinary - DONE We will be training certain staff members to be incident support units, These units will be alerted if an incident occurs and will be trained in bringing JR online if a major incident like this occurs again and when I am not available We are sorting out our budget to handle the other server, changing the standard currency used to purchase memberships on JR to euro's and currently it looks as JR will have to pay over 299 Euros a month to keep all our servers running. Unfortunately due to the growth of JR, we will be contacting some users that we gave free hosting to in the past and informing them that we can not handle their accounts any more unless they pay for the space. Sorting out a better failover and cloud system with our own resources to delegate server load to different servers located in strategic different locations around the world. Sorting out an admin backend to view all server events across all JR servers to make sure everything is running as normal. Bringing more staff on to the staff team at the JR website Adding in server performance features to the backend of the JR website. - DONE JR is determined to stay running and keep everyone happy. I am putting in personal funding into JR to keep everyone happy. I hate to ask but if you ever can please don't be afraid or think twice about donating to JR. We appreciate everything that users do to keep us running. Keep us running by funding us and more bigger things will come soon. We hope you didn't get affected to bad during today's event's Regards, Jamie

    So far, in the last couple of days, I have been reconfiguring the servers with the staff so our system runs more stable and more efficiently Now JR operates 4 Minecraft Servers: (Main, Hardcore, Skyblock, Creative) at the moment, We are also moving the minigames from the main server to a MiniGames server as well and yes, Survival Games is on the table of plans too. Creative Update: creative.jrcraft.net | /server creative --------------------- Our new creative server is based upon a plot system, to keep our world tidy as well as help users protect their creations, normal citizens can have up to 5 plots. Premium users have unlimited plots on the server. You can get a plot by typing /plotme auto To get builds transferred, just see if there is an administrator on the Main server and notify him that you want something transferred and he / she will happily do this for you. (Be aware, only good pieces will be transferred, if we feel it's not worth moving we will not move it) Skyblock Server: skyblock.jrcraft.net | /server skyblock --------------------- Our new skyblock server is an easy to understand play server. Just login to the server, type /island create and your skyblock will be created and you will be transferred to it. Please note this is a skyblock survival game so JRFly is not available in this world. Also if you do muck up and loose your items, lava / water. You will have to restart your skyblock, you can do that by doing ./island delete ./island create Hardcore Server: hardcore.jrcraft.net | /server hardcore --------------------- Our new hardcore server is what it says on the tin, hardcore. Users are allowed one home spot only, physics are different, TNT and griefing is allowed, stone and dirt can cave in if your not careful, creepers drop TNT, zombies are harder... If I go on you will be amazed. Let's just say this is Minecraft at it's hardest it will ever be. Just login to the server and at spawn read the signs. (Or if you really want to be hardcore, don't read them, run out like an idiot and get killed <-- it will happen, trust me) Minigames Server: Coming Soon --------------------- JR is moving all it's minigames to it's own server, you will be able to win rewards and extras by playing them but the reason we are moving them is to stop users from cheating and it'll have a better ping for you to play. Hopefully this will be done soon JRRPG: Main Server: New additions --------------------- Recently we have been getting our staff working on a couple of new systems that will make game-play even more fun. One of the major new additions is JR Levels. JRLevels is a custom coded plugin that will allow users to gain xp and gain levels on the skills: Fishing Flying Mining Woodcutting Digging Crafting Combat Each skill, will have it's own unique system of levelling up and will have customized prizes and rewards for each level up. So how is this different to mcMMO? It's very different, it integrates directly in to our custom plugins, it's going to make things way more fun. Users will have to gain certain levels to be able to use certain tools and abilities. For instance flying. Flying in RPG will require the use of coal, to begin with Coal will equal to = 15 seconds of flight, depending on your level, this time will change. You will level up your flight by using coal and flying. Be aware though, when you run out of time you will fall and you may die (When you level up there is a less chance of death) Let's take mining. You start at level one and are forced to use wooden tools, on levelling up and gaining XP you are able to use bigger and better tools, same thing basically applies with crafting, woodcutting, combat and digging. There will be more additions to the JR levels system, it's still in development and we should see it on the server within the next couple of days! Premium Additions Premium users can now make coloured signs Other changes Server chat will become global across all servers soon, and chat channels will have a persistence ability so when your in a channel you stay in that channel, in RPG the main server chat will be localized but you will be able to switch to global when ever you'd like. Anyway, that's all for now. More awesome things coming soon

    So you may ask, what's different. Well a lot. We have become way more simple, way more user friendly and less buggy. My personal aim while creating JR V16 was to show the world what a great community and website we have. In old and recent times we have had a nice website, but it's been complicated to understand, complicated to navigate and quite annoying at times. So I have personally redesigned JR from the ground up, building from the base which is Invision Power board and re modded everything from scratch, coded the design manually and really brought out the guns. Things done: - Hardly anything - Top userbar - Log out link in drop down - Removed username, we know who we are by the avatar - Redesigned a simple menu - Just did a slight change for the default search, looks awesome that way. - Redid a lot of hooks on JR - Edited editor to stop the annoying back space (delete most of what you wrote bug) This happens if you use bold mainly and was so annoying, no more crap like that - Added a tool tip system, for administrators, if you want to add it to any area you have to call a class called tooltips by adding class="tooltip" to your link you'd like a tool tip on. Then for example: <h3><a href="index.php?app=core&module=search&do=new_posts&search_app=forums" class="tooltip" >{$this->lang->words['recently_added_topics']}<span><b></b>View more recent topics</span></a></h3> - Updated IP.Content - Edited forum template ever so slightly, still thinking of ideas, but I believe we don't need much changed. - Fixed sign out feature <-- Handiest feature ever - Made the website front look cleaner and easier to understand - Added a new news template to display news nicer - Updated the style heavily - Cleaned up registration template. - Added cookie monster notification (Only because we are based in the EU and have to abide by the law too) Technically Facebook has to but of course when do they abide by the law lol - Added a new "Who's viewed this topic" - Added a like leader system, so users can see who is at the top of the leader board. - Updated the login box, so it's easier to understand - Updated the shout box and added sound effects - Added a feature at the bottom of the forum counting who were the top posters each day - Added a top link that only shows when you scroll down the page - Removed the staff online hook, only makes the bottom harder to understand. Added a nice little section at the bottom outlining which rank is which. - Added a new Topic Starter hook - Updated referral system, added tool-tip after 50 referrals (People signing up from invites or your referral link) You will get citizen +, forever!!! - Added a new spam system - Added a new bug tracker system - Added several different hooks -- Trust me I'm not going to continue to bore you with, we did this, we did that. We literally started JR from ground 0 and rebuilt it. So everything has changed I hope you enjoy the release

    As a part of the building team you will get to help staff in building many of JR's greatest buildings. You will be some of the first members to know some of JR's plans on future buildings and get to help us in building a lot of them. As a building team member you will be contacted when we, the staff, don't have time to build some buildings or when we are doing large scale builds that will require a lot of help. You may also be set builds where only the members of the building team will be involved. One of the main aims of this group will be to show the talent of our members, which is why the group will consist of only member ranks. You will still be managed by staff but we want you to have as much control in the builds as possible. Your application will require you to showcase a build in some way. We advise you either post it to the JRNetwork gallery or to PlanetMinecraft as a project. You will need to leave links to these in your application. You can apply at: http://jrurl.at/uildingpp OR Game Servers > JRCraft > Apply For Building Team You can also support applications(almost like up-voting) at: http://jrurl.at/upportpp OR Game Servers > JRCraft > View Applications > Then click on "View Applications" under Building Team

    We have had a server issue with Buildcraft, because of this we have disabled Buildcraft, please be aware that we have RedPower and it does mainly the same things, apart from quarries. Quarries will no longer work because of this, but our server will be way more stable due to this. We have also enabled: LWC, disabled JRFly as it wasnt been used for tekkit, disabled Towny due to it causing issues with tekkit as well. We are working hard to keep NLTekkit stable and lag free! We are again sorry for the removal of buildcraft but it was the only way we could keep stable. A lot of servers have this issue right now too. We are glad to report though the server is fixed

    Pretty cool huh? NoLagTekkit items disabled Let's face it, we don't want to disable tekkit items but some are needed to be removed as they bypass bukkit all together and cause huge issues with griefing, we have only disabled these to protect NoLagTekkit for the for-seeable future. Watch of Flowing Time - Messes with the server time, could cause potential lag/crashes (HKLens) Hyperkinetic Lens - Causes untraceable explosions from far distances (HCLens) Catalytic Lens - Same as Hyperkinetic Lens (NovaC1) Nova Catalyst - Untraceable explosion (NovaC2) Nova Cataclysm - Bigger untraceable explosion Red Matter Plus *Infernal Armour* - Explodes causing devestating untraceable effect Dark Matter Armour "" "" New membership coming?

    Simple, we have teamed up with x10VPS. How you might ask? Well simple. I have had hundreds of emails asking where did I start off JR, where did I host and whats the best VPS company for Minecraft servers! Well it's simple as I keep saying. x10 is. So we have been talking to the x10 Management and have constructed a deal for you guys that want to start, hosting, development, Minecraft hosting etc. If you use JRCRAFT in the promotional code box you will receive 20% OFF! For not just one month, not just two months! Even better, for 3 billing periods. So if you pay yearly that's 3 years with 20% off, if you pay monthly that's 3 months with 20% off, you get the idea! We'd like to also remind users that x10VPS do not provide software support. This is where we can come in. If you submit a ticket here, (please note a JR account is necessary) Just select x10VPS as the department in your ticket and we will give you a free quote on server setup / management on what ever server your wanting to host on your VPS. We have been working with servers for 6 years, so you can trust us and we will beat any valid quote from server management firms around the world! So this is another reason to choose x10 and JR Happy server hosting!

    Naming a few: - Emil <-- Seems to be the person who did this - Wavesludge Anyway, we are creating a new facebook account which will be integrated into JR so you can like it, Please take the time to dislike our current account as we can not gain access to it. It has been reported to facebook and they are taking the necessary steps to get it offline. http://www.facebook.com/JRNetwork <-- DE LIKE IT NOW We are staying professional unlike the ex admins that are trying their best to take JR down, we don't see them as a threat but a babyish excuse for wanting their mummy :/ The JRConnect app was not compromised as luckily I host it on my own facebook account. So there is no need to worry about compromised facebook status's etc. We got it under control cause we are that bawz We are sorry that this has interrupted our facebook page the new one will be switched online in a bit Edit: Here's our new Facebook page. Anyway back to work - Jamie

    JR Craft Economy

    New Commands /buy [name] (amount/"max") (/hb (amount/"max") Buys an amount of the item you're holding.) If no amount is given, 1 of the chosen item is bought.If "max" is given as the amount parameter, it buys as many of an item as your inventory can hold. /buyxp (amount) Buys the specified amount of experience points. (1 XP = 2 Coins) /hs (amount/"max") Sells the given amount of the item you're holding. /sellall Sells all of the items in your inventory. This command will sell every item in your inventory (except enchanted items or items that are not available in the current shop, et cetera.) /hv (amount) t displays the cost to sell the specified amount, the cost to buy it, and the amount of the item that the global shop currently has available. /topitems (page) Lists the items in the global shop with the most stock.If no page parameter is given it defaults to page 1."/topitems 2" would go to the second page and so on.If you are in a shop, only items in that shop will be displayed. /browseshop [search String] (page) Displays items in the global shop.If you're in a shop it will only display items available in that shop.It sorts items in alphabetical order and puts them into multiple pages if there are too many to fit on one page.It also displays the stock and purchase price for the item/enchantment. /xpinfo Displays information about experience. How the economy plugin works The global median (Item stock before a price raises or decreases) is set at 1000 items, as soon as we reach 1000 items in the shop for a certain item the price will decline because of huge stocks of the item. As soon as the item seems to run out (get's lower than 1000) it will start to rise in value. (Slowly and not just stupendous prices) If this happens we will edit it, but it shouldn't cause an issue we have tested it. Making Money Roaming around the server Now to encourage playing on JR, if you stick around the server every half hour you will earn 50 Coins that you can use to buy and sell with! Voting To make money to begin with you can start by voting for us. When you vote you will be given 1000 Coins per vote, you can do this at http://pm.jrcraft.net/ and http://mcs.jrcraft.net Jobs Another way to earn money? Get a job! do /jobs browse to find available jobs in game. To join a job do /jobs join (jobname) Depending on the job you are given a different salary. There will be more jobs to come for this. Chest shops and Selling Sell to users instead of selling to the economy. Get the items yourself by mining and exploring and either sell them cheaper than the economy price or sell it to the global shop Gamble on the lottery Users can buy up to 20 tickets in the lottery, to do this do /lottery buy 20 Play mob arena If you do /ma j you will instantly be zapped in to a mob arena of awesomeness (only if you are in the survival world), you can earn money from battling in the mob arena
