Hey guys, a lot of you may have noticed my inactivity for the past month or two. I'm not going to sit here and give you a million excuses. Overall I started working again, it's what I have to do in order to survive. In the servers prime I could afford to sit back and let it grow and consider this my job, because we were bringing in enough money.
Now, with the EULA and just plain lack of interest things aren't going the way they used to. As time progresses the game gets worse, and I loose my interest as do many of you. However I am just checking in on how things are going, if you have any simple suggestions I can do for the server to make it temporarily better until I figure something else out that would be great.
I currently was just diagnosed with Mono, and therefor I'm not actually leaving this year as originally planned. And when I'm not working I'm usually sleeping. So... If anyone is interested in giving me some suggestions shoot me a text!
Please make them short and simple suggestions, I don't want to spend countless hours in time that I don't have adding one simple thing.
I've marked everything in the shop down to 50% for the entire month.
(The server will continue to have the occasional downtime until the first version of the 1.8 Spigot is released. If however the server goes down I will not know until I receive a text, so make sure you send me one if you notice it's down!)
Hello everyone, SlappyGilmore here again and we're just coming at you with another update. We've recently got the ever so famous "EchoPet" plugin, and will be offering new pets along with our new ranks! Not only are we adding these, but we're also going to have a 25% off sale due to the 1 year anniversary. It's been a great year, and I don't regret much about it. You guys have been great to me, and I hope that goes both ways!
I've been running Minecraft servers since May 10, 2012; and it's a lot of fun. It's also a lot of hard work, but it's worth it to watch everyone have fun and know you've made it possible for others to enjoy their day after a long hard day at school. Now, I bought made a server after getting frustrated with the amount of abusive staff members were out there. None of the owners ever listened to me, even if the server I played on didn't have more than 5 players online! So it was decided and I started Insanitycraft, and now I'm here with you guys.
For the future of the server, we're still going to keep recruiting staff and inviting new players and we need your help. You can either advertise us on your youtube accounts, invite your friends. Everything helps, especially the money because with $50.00 we can advertise to up to around 30-50,000 people! Which can bring in a bunch of members to play along with you.
(Why not go ahead and throw us a contribution today, we're running the 25% off and I'll give you the coupon code "1YEAR" for an additional 10%. Happy crafting guys, I'll see you on the server!
Hey guys, this is SlappyGilmore again. After a recent report made on the forums by our former guard BadBoy983, that we have too many over powered items. As a Minecraft player myself I've never liked the OP version of Minecraft and I'm pretty upset that we've overwhelmingly dropped a bunch of over powered items in drop parties. In order to gain new players we're going to start collecting a staff group any sword with enchantments over the normal enchants. We are replacing these said swords with personalized Diamond Swords with Sharpness 5, Unbreaking 3, Looting 3, and Fire Aspect 2.
Due Date: 9/10/14
We don't want to waste all of our spare time collecting all these items, so we'd appreciate if you'll come forward with the over powered swords. If we do not have the swords by the date above and we find you using them you will be jailed for a time up to 30 minutes, and we will not refund the sword when we take it! So please, we urge you turn them in as soon as possible.
Also, on top of collecting swords we're collecting anything with profanity in it, whether that's armor/swords/sticks/ect. Please report any player who has these items to a staff member immediately. We're not going to waste too much time looking for armor, but if you have anything over Protection 10 turn it in or dispose of it properly in lava or a disposal sign at spawn.
Thank you for your time, and please inform all players on the server as lack of knowledge will not be an accepted excuse!
On a side note for all of you players waiting so long for the magical plugin we like to call ChestShop it is now enabled! You can create your own personal shops at your plots!
Thank you for your dedication to the server, I'll see you online!
I don't know about you guys, but I like it when the server does well. When everyone's getting their friends from school online and we're running a decent amount of players. Part of that brings in the expense of advertising to ensure that we have the players to start with. Once we achieve that peak point of around 30 players a day, from their it is smooth sailing as everyone brings one or two personal friends onto the server and we grow endlessly from their.
Now, unfortunately I lost the time to play a few months back; but I've regained that time and I'm looking to take us onto bigger and better things. Not only have we been actively making changes and trying to listen to every players opinion we've also expanded the prison to 50 ranks! That took us a lot of time, after redesigning Prison 2.0 we created an entirely new Prison 3.0 and moved the old donator mines to the back of the prison. So what I'm going to ask of you guys, maintain your grades in school, while putting a decent amount of time towards your homework and personal life before logging into the server. Be grateful that you have the ability to play online video games and thank your parents/guardians for allowing you the privilege to play. But most importantly enjoy life while you're young and make the most of it, because it's going to fly by!
On to the game...
We need all of our players to be actively helping us expand, and part of that involves our advertising expenses. The times in the past that we've had the most amount of players online is when we put $250-$300 into advertising. So we're going to make a goal, and sort of a game out of it.
This months goal is to raise $500.00 in donations; whether that be purchasing the rank of your choice, or in game event of your choice. I want us to raise $500.00 for advertising, and if we do so not only will we have an outstanding drop party at the end of the month!!!
This keyboard will also be given away to any of the members who chose to donate $5.00 or more this month.
(Please note we're only giving this keyboard away if we raise the $500.00 goal amount)
So, happy gaming to all and lets glide on through this month!
At this point I'm sure you're all wondering what is going on with the server, why don't you have your rank anymore and what's happening!? Well hold on for a moment, don't panic go ahead and read on because it'll all be explained!

In the past I'm sure we've left you all wondering why we rarely ever update the server and add new things, some of you have probably come to determine we're lazy... Well, I'm not going to deny it, which is why this new system is going to work so well!
Changing the ranks to a numerical system is going to make it easier to add onto the server and create more ranks for players too keep working and have a reason to play! Now it's simply some sort of leveling system, the higher the number, the better the player!
