Hello CSG Community,
This is an incredibly important announcement that will emit a strong emotional response from the community so please take the time to read through the entire thing before posting.
I notified my server hosting provider to not renew the machine that runs the server. This means that the server will go permanently offline at the end of the current billing cycle. I know this might be shocking, but it was inevitable especially with the threat of EULA enforcement hanging over every decision and the declining player base.
A lot of you were probably hoping that I would transfer the network to someone else. Unfortunately, this did not happen. At the end of the day, it did not feel right selling the entire community and the assets to somebody who was inexperienced and/or didn't have the server's original vision in mind. The server would have ended up completely different and just die.
I do have offsite backups of the network in its current state, so I will be uploading the important worlds (skyblock and creative) so that the dedicated players will able to download and keep their creations.
The website will stay online to allow the community to have a platform to communicate on. If everyone leaves the forums, then I'll probably shut them down.
Lastly, I just wanted to say that I truly appreciate all of you. Thank you for playing on CSG and making this community what it is. The server wouldn't have survived without people like you.
I also wanted to give a special thanks to the entire staff team, both past and present. I appreciate all your help so much. The server wouldn't have survived without you! And, finally, a massive thanks to Detah for staying with the server until the very end - you poured so much of your time into making the network what it is. I can't thank you guys enough.
I'm still going to be active on the forums over the next few days. If you want to stay in touch, send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Thank you all.
