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.
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.
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!

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
