Hey everyone! September is here, and that means we have winners for our August Monthly Voting Contest! It was a really close race, but we had a clear top 3 voters, so here they are:
armon101 - 124 votes
spaceship9000 - 123 votes
Annastaysha - 123 votes
Good luck to everyone voting in September, and remember that all top 3 voters receive a $25 Rank Shop Gift Code for winning each month! Thanks to everyone who supports AWNW by voting!
In other news, Minecraft 1.8 will be coming out this Tuesday (Sept. 2nd) and we are excited! Naturally we will NOT be updated right away, although we have plans to make it so 1.8 clients can connect to AWNW fairly quickly, otherwise we recommend not updating right away. We have no ETA on when our servers will be updated to 1.8 because we have to wait on Bukkit and our plugins to be updated before we can do any updates. I will make more announcements when we get closer to being able to update to 1.8, and we will introduce new blocks/items via spawn/shops for the servers :)
And for those curious, Survival will NOT reset when we update to 1.8, but rather sometime after we are updated. We have lots of big plans for Survival v5.0, and we are SUPER excited about getting updated so we can start working on getting a date for 5.0! So stay tuned for that!
