Newsletter #46 for May 15th, 2023

Howdy folks!

It’s Tommy time! Community Liaison ThatTommyBoii reporting for newsletter duty!

We’ve got some updates for you, let’s begin right away!

Minecraft Servers

The DS9 petition date has changed!!

Due to scheduling conflicts, Joe will need to cancel the upcoming DS9 petitions. But worry not! We’re just gonna do things a little bit differently this time!

We will be doing asynchronous petitions reviewed live on Joe’s stream! Folks can submit their petition request in our new channel, S9 Vanilla SMP: Deep Slate Nine > #ds9-asyncronous-may-petitions.

Then, on Monday, May 22nd at 8:30pm US Central Time, Joe will review the requests live on stream! Folks can still attend the petition of course, this method just ensures folks who can’t attend on a weekday can still submit items.

If you have any questions, please let us know in the channel!

April Everstorm closes

The survivors of last month’s Everstorm share these final reports:

  • Void killed four withers, one dragon, and then flew out to explore all corners of the world before retiring
  • Kindalas joined the world to ride on Void’s coat tails.

May Everstorm opens

Does anybody else hear maniacal laughter? Oh, it’s just our server operator ToxxicGlitter! How have our players fared so far with his Everstorm this month?

  • fancytoy drowned in an attempt to make an underwater staircase
