As you know I have been working to make JR way more organized, I have been so busy its 2:30 AM at the moment, Since I have fell into the love of my website developing it etc. It seems I have lost track of time.
What are we doing to make the website more organised?
- Dedicated support area

Sick of tons of recent posts in the forum about bans, No worry any more! Check it out: http://jrnetwork.net/minecraft/bans
- A place to upload your Minecraft projects!
Also we will be doing a weekly build competition for a chance to win a weeks gold membership and also 15,000 cash in minecraft every week! More info: ! Link: http://jrnetwork.net/minecraft/builds
- We shall be publishing a weekly news report on JR with the latest at JR and what we are doing, This will also be mass emailed to all users on JR!
- We are trying to make the forums a place of discussion and fun, not a full on bordem place. People need to be aware that forums exist and join in with the community.
JR is growing, we are getting popular and we have many services. We are not just a forum anymore, We have an awesome powerful CMS system now, we have a lot of custom code. We are just trying to organize our selves as I'm pretty unorganized at times!
This organization will help JR grow even more and I hope you enjoy what we are doing to make JR a better experience for us all!
Hey guys, For 4 hours straight I have been getting ready a surprise project! So here it is, its an easy service where you can quickly upload your project to JR Network. Please remember this is in beta and we are still working on it, More things will be added when I have a chance. There aren't bugs, because there isn't much to go wrong. I hope you enjoy this and use it!

Sorry to not basically tell anything to anybody 0.o Basically we have had to shift a lot of stuff around so we can get everything to speed up and start running more effeciently. This is with all services, not just the JR website.
Due to our belief that our main node was going to die we quickly transferred all our websites over without major warning. I recently tracked this down and I believe it was the HDD running a bit slow causing CPU load and corruption of files every so often.
So what exactly has been done in the last 7 days.
Tons of stuff:
1) Website's and Minecraft Servers have been moved on to a bigger dedicated server to handle the traffic of the website.
2) New backup system is been put in place.
3) We have reconfigured the new server to run as fast as possible.
4) Had to switch the DNS over to the new server under new nameservers causing a lot of issues.
5) IRC has been switched (we have work to do on this before we re-enable it)
Thats just some of the stuff we have done.
I'd like to apologize for all the downtime we have been getting, everything will start sorting itself out now.
Minecraft users. we would like to apologize but playmc.jrnetwork.net <-- Is updating, temporarily use:
. I'd like to say with all this traffic this transfer was one of the most challenging things we have done. Also now we will be able to handle more traffic and handle the traffic we have recently been getting, We are here to stay and we will be working hard to keep us open for you the community.
We'll be moving to a fresh server setup tonight. A lot of reconfiguration will be done to make it work faster for you! Our old hosting solution does not allow additional HDDs so we are switching to a new server. The specifications remain the same.
Jamie will start at around 19:00 GMT, and the expected down-time is 1 to 12 hours.
Note that new Minecraft users will not be able to register during the time the site is transferred, but the existing users will be able to login and play.
