    Welcome to the 7th blog, though it's not been too long since the last one a whole lot has gone on! Jumping right in, in no particular order:

    Changes to staff management

    Most of you don't know yet but Joe (Turkey_Dinosaur) has taken a step back from his role as staff manager, and responsibilities have been given to @ItzReece and @Holly! So from now on they'll be the ones reading staff applications and handling all helpers and mods. Joe will still be about doing things he enjoys, and as you'll have seen yesterday, he'll still be recording with Jack!

    Rules and punishments

    I spent some time the other day updating the rules thread and making it a bit more detailed. I've also added a reply, making the punishment timeline public! You can read it >> HERE <<
    As most of you already know, punishments on Skycade are entirely public and can be viewed at any time, to make this easier, we've edited the toolbar at the top of the forums to include a "Bans" tab, which will take you to the public list of all punishments.

    TNT

    To the relief of many of you, we have our sights set on fixing TNT! The main man Dwayne has been working hard to get TNT mechanics to work like you're all used to from 1.8 as well as maintaining and improving other aspects of the server! We've made significant steps, and we'll be inviting well known redstoners to help us on the test server in the coming days.

    KitPvP

    Several adjustments have been made to KitPvP kits e.g. we've increased the unbreaking enchantment on some armour, and removed triple damage from bow classes. We've also made kills give you 300% more coins than they did previously, so you can unlock new kits faster!

    Events!

    Last night Holly, Reece and myself with the help of Dizcos hosted a 1v1 tournament on factions with prizes for the winners, it was a sort of test run and it went great! Over 70 players participated and it lasted ages! Over the coming days and weeks I'll be building more events for you guys to enjoy, both on factions and Skyblock. I'll make sure they're not all PvP focused too! Anyway, I'll have a schedule ready for the events by this Wednesday and I'll post it on the forums.

    Staff

    Beginning with a positive, congratulations to NightsCloud for being promoted to moderator! However, there have been a few demotions. HotDawger, 1O8O, HatedV1 and According have all been removed from the team for inactivity.

    Skyblock

    Thanks to the magical work of Ricky and Dwayne, nether islands now count towards your Skyblock level (or will do, by tonight anyway)!

    Store changes

    Jack wanted me to mention that he'll be bringing back coupon codes to each video, so basically, somewhere in every video he posts there will be a secret coupon code that you can use at store.skycade.net for money off your purchase, so keep an eye out!
    From Monday to Sunday we'll be having something we're calling suffix week, which is basically, every 24 hours, a new limited edition will be added to the store - once it's gone, it's gone! So at 8:30pm UK time, the suffix will change and you will no longer be able to buy the previous day's.
    Be sure to nab any you think are cool while they're available!

    That's it for this updates blog, hope you guys feel adequately informed and happy with progress! :)

    Sounds good! The store changes are great, and I think will be one of the best features to Skycade (other than it's the only non-pay2win factions server out there! (check it out - play.skycade.net if you haven't already!)) and I will definitely be thinking about getting the suffixes that come out weekly!

    Greatly pronounced in text, nothing I would add that would be useful!

    Congratulations to @Holly & @ItzReece for staff manager! (reads all of the applications and accepts/denies them) and I am sure there will be new staff soon!

    Here's an idea!


    Give me a free suffix called '234O is G0D'

    Then I'll spend my brothers paycheck :)

    (shhhhh. Tell no one :p)

    I just want to say that these event's that the staff are hosting are a great idea and are are something unique. Please keep them up! And Im also really happy to hear that TNT will be fixed. (Even if it's to some certain extent). I cant wait to raid bigger factions. ;)

    These updates are a lot to take in, especially with the size of this one.
    Congrats to NightCloud, and it's sad to see those four removed from the team.

    I'm excited to try and find the coupon code in each video ;).
