Hello Minelink!

It's that time again. I know most of you have been eagerly awaiting the end of this map, and I apologize for how long the map has been allowed to continue. It was my intention to reset around 2 weeks ago, however, due to some very poor planning on my part, that didn't happen. With the recent changes to our staff structure, I am hopeful that moving forward, things will run more smoothly.

As many of you may already know, I've recently promoted four of our staff members to the rank of admin. @Shrimpay, @RXIAH, @Chancho and @DrewFos will be handling most of the day-to-day server issues, hosting weekly/bi-weekly events and helping to maintain an energetic community and a strong staff team. With those responsibilities lifted, I can focus on brainstorming and implementing new features, fixing bugs and more thoroughly planning future resets.

I'd like to thank everyone who played season 3, whether you...

Our first event as Admins will be an LMS event, we wanted to find something unique and fun that has never been done on Minelink before and we hope you enjoy it and many more to come.

When: 18th March 10PM GMT

http://itsalmo.st/#minelinklms

Where: /Warp LMS will be available to you when it starts.

Information: At approximately 10PM GMT all players who wish to participate in the event will use /warp lms to teleport to the arena. After doing so we'll acquire you with a kit that you will only get once. You will not be able to use any commands once you're in the arena. When everyone is ready we'll start the countdown and release everyone into the arena. The aim of the game is to be the last man standing.

Greetings!

For a long time now, Minelink has been held back by the fact that all of the administrative burden was placed on RagingDouche and myself, which left me with very little time to get any meaningful features developed. The result of this handicap was boring, uneventful maps with mediocre changelogs. That all ends today.

I'd like to welcome the following staff members into Minelink's newly formed admin team:
@Shrimpay, @Chancho, @RXIAH and @DrewFos.

Admins will work together to resolve issues, mediate policy and host community events such as PVP tournaments and raid events. They will have all the same permissions that I have, as such they are forbidden from playing competitively. Shrimpay will be leading the team as the Head Admin.

Those of you who really know these guys will understand the wisdom in this decision. For those who don't, I ask you to give them a chance, because I've known them all for a...

Hello Minelink!

It's been a while since you've heard anything official from me, I've been busy coding a bunch of stuff that I hope to bring to you guys very soon, so hang in there :)

I realize that season 3 has become rather stale and I am overwhelmed by the amount of support you guys show with your votes despite the stale map!

The top voters for February are as follows:

The top 3 will get the usual $50, $35 and $20 coupons. The top 4 through 10 will receive a $10 coupon. If you are a top voter, please start a forum convo with me in private to receive your coupon.

Again, thanks to everyone who voted, whether you are a top voter or not. We appreciate your votes!

That's it for now, but I promise to bring an announcement post regarding some exciting updates coming soon!

Hello!

I'm sorry it took so long for this announcement. I was hoping that @RagingDouche would be able to find the time to do it, however, real-life issues prevent him from spending any more time on Minelink for a while. He's okay and you can expect to see him return when he's in a better place in regards to his real-life issues. No worries, though. I don't plan on going anywhere and I'll be right here to pick up on the slack and make sure everything is running smoothly. :)

Okay, let's get right down to it! The winner of the XBox One S giveaway is:

xCraftDaddy with a total of 267 tickets.

xCraftDaddy, if you're reading this, come talk to me to redeem your reward. If any of his friends or faction mates see this, please tell him to get in touch with me on the forums.

As Raging detailed in his video, for every purchase made between Dec 22 and Jan 1 (including those days) you have 1 ticket...
