[6:54 PM] Name hidden: Hey, just wanted to ask if there's a chance the server is too big for extra people to join in. Every single "old" player has been very elitist on who they allow to participate and it's driving me away from even looking at what people say. Anytime I say "Hello," I don't even hear the crickets chirp. And when I mention how I think people need to be more welcoming everyone turns defensive and keeps repeating "no no no no" without arguments, or repeating the same argument without explaining it. I really don't feel welcome in the server and have experienced this many times on other places. I know those are bound to fall appart as these older members leave and newers are driven away. I didn't want to start arguing directly with everyone because that's simply not helpful, so I decided to take it to you privately as to not start too much commotion.Now, I have one simple message. Everyone treating new players like that - you are not welcome on SFT. I have zero need for players who turn other players away. Either apologize, or find another gaming community to play on because this will not be tolerated.
In short, I really feel like the community is very much closed and I don't want to make a big deal about it, but it does not make me want to be a part of it.
Got any opinions by chance?
Dubbed the technical update, Minecraft 1.13 will be the next major version of Minecraft to be released. This release will include a lot of long awaited changes and refactorings to both the client and server, and as a result is expected to be the largest CraftBukkit/Spigot release since 1.8, and the largest Bukkit (API) release ever. We have already spent around 50 hours on snapshots and are starting to get a pretty good (although purely speculative) idea of what the impact will be to plugin developers and server owners.This may mean that a ton of plugins will break, possibly even some essential ones like autoshop plugins and so on.
Because one of the primary goals of the Bukkit API is to provide a stable interface for plugins across a variety of platforms and versions, changes have to be made with the right balance between stability, featureset, and maintenance. With this in mind we have decided to target the following changes:
Block type IDs will be completely removed
This is a change which started to be implemented over four years ago, unfortunately there are still plugins out there using block IDs when they shouldn't be, including some fairly popular ones. Virtually every occurance of block IDs currently has an Material replacement available for usage right now. If your plugin, or a plugin you use exposes IDs in any form we strongly recommend you work to get it upgraded right away as this may be a somewhat involved process (albeit one that should have been done years ago).
Block data values will be deprecated
All instances of byte data values, and MaterialData usage will be deprecated. Although the byte data values have also been deprecated for a very long time, many of them do not currently have suitable replacements. As such we will be providing support for them on a best effort basis. This means that plugins using these APIs will (hopefully) run to some degree, but you should not expect complete or consistent support. We strongly recommend waiting for updated versions for the best performance and data...
