Hey everyone, Lex here!
I know Juvi has been doing what he can to keep you all up to date on some things, like the World Map, so that's great, but as for other things, like plugin and donation perk updates, etc... there's really nothing to report. HeartillyCraft has been a bit slow because of the 1.11 update because it seems a lot of prgrammers aren't interested in updating their plugins.
That being said, I am going to talk to Juvi about perhaps using whatever donations we receive this month to go towards hiring a programmer to update a few things that are just really missing out on, like ultra cosmetics or other fun ideas. This isn't a guaruntee, but I am going to try my best to work towards bettering the server, as well as updating some more information around the website.
Additionally, now that we have a World Map, the Creative Build Awards is finally back, which means you guys should get to building on your awesome places for the chance to win an icon on the map! :)
I will hopefully start having more time to get online soon. My grandfather and family are still healing over the loss of my grandmother, but things are slowly getting a little better... I have noticed that my grandpa does not cry as much as he did when it all happened (at least he's not doing it so much in front of me anymore... which I'm not sure is a good or bad thing...) and we have been watching a lot of movies and TV shows like The Hunger Games, Stranger Things and Breaking Bad. The puppy Juvi and I bought him (Pippin) has also been keeping him from being so lonely at night when everyone goes home for the day.
Anyway, I just want to say THANK YOU to everyone who has been patient and understanding with me and Juvi during this very hard time. You guys all mean a lot to us, even though we haven't really been able to show it very much right now. You guys are NOT on a backburner and have definitely been on my mind pretty much every day. I promise we'll all do more things together soon.
