  1. We tend to report outages on relevant social media and via notices on Discord - unfortunately most of our staff aren't big users of the forums. I try to post update logs here, however, because it's a good place for that content to stick around and be referenced forever. I can try and have staff make a best effort to post about downtime here, though!
  2. The rank exists, it is this color: . However, it is manually granted. Ask me (Blackjack on Discord) or Aether/Skar (Same name on Discord, the guy who does most of the work running the server) and we'll check your rank on the forums and grant it from there.
  3. Welcome, Mentis! Quite glad to finally have you on the team
  4. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

  5. Discord is more or less the de facto official channel for communication outside the server at this point! It was also mentioned on-server.
  6. Hey everyone! This is just a quick post to keep you updated on what's recently changed feature-wise at PoniArcade. I'm going to try my best to write these more often, as well - usually I just kind of spring new features and things on everyone without telling them, and that's not really the best! The most recent changes we've made are as follows: Dynmap was removed. It used a lot of disk space on our servers, and a poll of the community found that the majority of those who voted thought we should remove it. Votifier was finally properly configured. What this means for you is that whenever you vote on Planet Minecraft (by clicking on "Vote for them as a top server", right under the titles) you'll be rewarded with 5000 bits in-game! You can do this once per day. We're hoping to add more sites you can vote on for us so that you can get even more rewards, and rewards are subject to change - we might even introduce loot crates at some point! That's all for now - expect even more great things in the near future
  7. Hey there, just another little announcement to describe some more of the recent server changes we've undergone! First off, as you may have noticed, Perish and Skar (Aether) have rejoined staff, as a moderator and an admin, respectively. Welcome back! They have been hard at work on things to make the server more fun, including the Canada Day and 4th of July events you may have heard about or even attended! Expect more fun stuff to come! The server has updated to 1.12, but players using outdated clients (all the way back to 1.8!) can still join for the time being. I may start blocking clients older than 1.11 at some point - you guys really need to update We're also going to hopefully be bringing on some new features in the near future. These include economy rewards (Bits) for killing mobs, and a brand new server - creative-mode freebuild on normally-generated terrain! We'll hopefully have another announcement out when that happens Edit: Also, ranks are temporarily disabled and all will be reset when they return. Surprise! Let me know what you guys think!
  8. Try connecting directly to the server address bungee.poniverse.net, and see if that fixes it. If not, let me know!
  9. Hey there! I just wanted to let everyone know about some recent changes that have gone on at PoniArcade, as I don't want to confuse people and leave them in the dark! In rough order of occurence... - Skar/Cadance stepped down from staff. - Dora has re-joined staff as an admin. - Perish was removed from staff for various reasons, details of which I don't wish to go into. - Aly, Groudon, Ponka, Kid, and SilverFlameWolf stepped down from staff for personal reasons after Perish's removal. - Mercury has joined us to help me out with administrating the server in the interim, but isn't quite an official admin right now. - Someone new will be joining our moderation team soon - stay tuned for a separate announcement! Expect things to start moving again soon - the staff (both old and new) are working hard to come up with and implement brand new ideas to make the server more enjoyable! We're also planning on working on advertising soon, so as to hopefully get some new players and unstagnate things a little bit. If you have any questions, post here or send me a PM This post will also be put into an on-server announcement in the coming days.
  10. Web

    Firefox everywhere. I don't want yet another window for the NSA to have into my life, and it seems like that is what most browsers other than Firefox are nowadays, unfortunately. Plus, most of the extensions I enjoy using either don't run on other browsers, or their equivalents are too terrible for me to want to use.
  11. A partnership agreement is when a convention approaches Poniverse (or the other way around) and one asks the other for some services, and the other side provides the first side with some other services in return. A contractual agreement is formed. As part of our side of the agreement, Poniverse usually provides a forum section. There isn't any reason for us to provide conventions with a forum without such a formal agreement - what do we get in return for effectively giving them free advertising? In addition, conventions may not want sections on here, as they may have their own forums that they are perfectly happy with.
  12. All of the convention sections/forums we have are for conventions we have partnership agreements with - that's the only case under which we host a forum for a convention
  13. To be fair, OVH offers some fairly low-cost dedicated servers in their SoYouStart and Kimsufi lines.
  14. None, because The Cloud is a stupid concept in my mind and I don't trust it I don't trust other peoples' hardware in general either, but it's at least better if I have full access to it (ie: a dedicated server.)
