    A new direction

    Who is snw?!
    I'm Ben, more commonly known as snw but you can call me whatever you want (except daddy). I'm going to be filling the very large shoes of @Amazing who sadly departed on Thursday. I'll be bringing content updates to PotatoMC, but more noticeably, a reset.

    Resetting PotatoMC
    Let's face it. For the past few months, PotatoMC has been slightly neglected in the eyes of content. I'll be pushing out new content, but I'd like to focus on a reset. We want to get this reset out as soon as possible for you players to enjoy.

    I'll be implementing a lot of your ideas, fixing all of the visible bugs & a lot more. The management team will be listening to all of your suggestions.

    Over the next few hours I will read your suggestions etc.

    Where can I voice my opinion?
    You can voice it below, or use the traditional suggestions section, I'll be consistantly reading both.

    More reset insights will be released soon. Feel free to ask questions below

    1. Are the new rank perks replacing the previous ones? Will items in a certain rank structure still be as powerful or are they being nerfed?

    2. You mentioned keeping ranks, but will commands-and say-infusion pickaxes, or some other item bought in the store be available after reset if we've already purchased them?

    3. I think many people would be curious to know if artwork will carry over. Not sure how that process even works or if artmaps are wiped upon a reset.

    4. Will owned land carry over? I mean the amount, not the specific areas, obviously. Or will players start with the default amount of land to claim?

    I'll probably have other questions. These are just my curiosities so far.

    Are you still doing the /legacy plan involving the main world being moved to a separate location in the server's files and replacing the main world? And will the staff acceptance levels change? How will you reroute the new-world money to a separate database? How will the chats work?

    Thanks,
    TheMorphor

    These perks will be addons to the ones you currently have. No nerfs as far as I know, as I wouldn't want to ruin experiences.

    Commands will be transferred I believe. The menu will also be transferred for infusion pickaxes. All non-permanent items will not be transferred.

    Again, something I'm not quite sure of :p

    I will discuss this with @trkey to see what his POV is on it.

    This is something we can do down the line, but to start off with, no

    We're going to be hiring active staff, so the acceptance rate will be based on activity

    Instead of just basing the acceptance rate based on activity, may i suggest basing it on the communities opinion, i for one wouldnt want a staff who's super active, but not trusted at all by the playerbase

    Hey its finally happening (been waiting for this for a while and I have to say I'm very excited). Big thing for me is a server shop for new players to make their money, rather then it being a mostly player based economy. That way we can keep a nice population, as this seems like a big thing to most people that were new.

    If you don't start off with /legacy, how will you get the world into a "new" server after taking it out?

    Will the End be fixed after the update?

    Loving the Pengu btw, but I thought the server wasn't getting reset until after the latest update? Or are you making it compatible via the latest snapshot?

    Glad to hear that the server is starting back up again! I enjoy this server so much, and it really does deserve better than what it received in the past (in terms of fixes, updates, etc). I'm excited to see what your ownership will bring, snw, and I wish you the best of luck! ;)

    Original plan was 9th of May, although it got delayed, and right now we just need approval from Trkey, so hopefully it will be up very soon
