Behind the Scenes | State of Matecraft #3
#1
Information 
Hello all!
Welcome to the series of updates I will be posting as time goes on, bringing the community up-to-speed with the goings on of the network.

Let's start off with a few known issues that staff are working on;
- SkyGrid likes to crash when new players make a grid - This has been reported to the developer responsible for the SkyGrid plugin and it is being worked on
- All servers have been crashing quite a bit recently - This was due to a botched update and should be fixed right now!

Now let's move on to some things that have happened, that you may or may not have noticed over the past week;
- Server Command Handling - I've spent quite a lot of time optimising the command handling network wide so that there's as little strain as possible on each server. You may notice your commands are ever so slightly quicker! You may also notice that /hub, /lobby & /playtime among other commonly used commands on other servers now actually serve a function within ours!
- Staff - You might've seen that there have been quite a lot of recruitment and promotions the past while. This is primarily to ensure there can always be staff on with tools they need to keep the server enjoyable for the Community, but it also leads onto my next point;
- Helpers - If you're a long time player of Matecraft you may remember the Helper system. This system allowed players to actively apply for staff and work their way through the ranks, and ultimately decide if it was right for them as well. The Helper system is indeed returning, and very soon so keep your eyes open!

Lastly, let's look at Matecraft's 7th Birthday coming up on the 20th!
