Lovely babies, Bannah and I love you all so much and want to make a special thanks to all of you. So many of you have been with LunarVale since it first launched, December 5th, in 2015. So many more of you have been here since the dawn of Shimmerville, way back in 2012. It’s incredible our community has stayed so tight-knit and I’m honestly so happy about that. We can never thank any of you enough for spending time on the server, voting daily, introducing friends and sometimes investing money, to see it’s success. It’s such a loving community filled with all kinds of great and cool people from all walks of life. You guys truly give Bannah and me incredible memories that we never thought would happen to us. We both have so much gratitude for you all.
With this said, there has come a time where I am struggling with juggling a server and being a full-time university student. Bannah is also dealing with her job and being a full-time student. Owning a server may not be a full-time job but we feel we’re not doing it right by having not having time to attend to it. We’ve discussed options, since 1.13 is around the corner, and we have come to a conclusion. We will not be updating the server to 1.13 when it is out and there will be no server resets, updates, new features, added plugins or major events for quite a while (We may still host drop parties but most likely for major holidays only). This is due to me and Bannah both being full-time students with busy personal lives and us being so limited with how much time we can put into the server’s development. This will come with a few other changes that I want to clear up.
The web-store will be closing, June 10th. DO NOT freak out about this, this does not mean we are shutting the server down, it will be up and running for quite a while and is in no danger of running out of funds. The web-store closing is mostly for protection from future chargebacks, in case someone is upset the server will not be updated anymore. This also gives myself and Bannah a chance to rework the website when we have a lot more time, as we want to add more cosmetic functions and permission for you guys. Before June 10th the server will be having a 75% off sale so you guys can buy things you may want before the store closes.
To sum this all up, imagine the server like a big ship. We’re on the water and we’re all living peacefully on this big ship on the open sea. We’re basically just taking the ship to shore and letting it dock a bit. The dock rent is paid for and the crew can still live on the ship while it is docked. The captains will return but not for a few months.
☽ Staff applications will still be open and you can apply for staff.
☽ If you have direct questions you can message Luna through the server’s Discord member list.
☽ More cat statues will be made in the future.
