Long story short, I am going to be shutting down the kNoCraft.com servers on November 16, 2016. Survival will be going down 2 days prior so everyone can have a chance to download the world. While I am posting this on DiamondFire's Website... DiamondFire is a completely different server and will not being going down. kNC is simply where we hold competitions and survival for our players.
Why? Two reasons mainly. First, quite simply, the server isn't worth what it takes to keep up. I've put in over 200 hours into coding the server, and it doesn't seem to be going anywhere or paying off. But that's ok and not anyone's fault but my own. I don't have the ability to advertise it... and that just may have been my problem. I enjoyed running it and seeing so many of you on, and I thank you guys for that. It has been fun.
Secondly, ever since I joined SpigotMC last year and uploaded a couple of the minigames I have made for kNC, I have gotton a lot of requests to do work on other servers. It actually has been super awesome because, as some of you may know, I was able to quit working at the local McDonalds and move into my field of expertise: Computer Science. These projects have paid off well and I'd like to spend more of my time doing them... which means I wont be able to maintain kNC anymore.
I went ahead and purchased one more month for you all so this change wouldn't happen with just 12 days of notice. Enjoy! But, for those of you with a rank, please Direct Message me so we can talk about compensation.
If you are interested in buying out the entire server, parts of it, or just getting general information on it, please contact me on Discord or at firstname.lastname@example.org. As the server is going down anyway, I am not going to make a huge fuss over its worth. This is just a chance to keep it running for everyone-- even if it is under a new owner.
Anyways, enjoy the last month of kNC, and I look forward to seeing you all more on DiamondFire!
