    I've got just a few bits of constructive criticism (maybe a bit more than a few) based on first impressions. I just don't want to see mineswine turn into every other server, there is a reason some people have stuck around this long and its all potential.

    First off they had this motto of trying to custom code everything they can I've heard that from insane and dilly many times ever since they started the server, and looking at the hub I don't even need access to /pl to know this isn't what it was.

    Dilly and insane just had this style of doing things and this community-based mindset that really drove mineswine to the peak of what it was. But there's also a reason it ended up where it was beside them having personal things, which is balance. If you're going to make a successful server balance is more crucial than in StarWars (really). Like the balance between giving the community what it wants and listening to what everyone has to say (underlined for a reason), and getting a business out there. With mineswine being on its side of the scale focused on making great games and working with the community (until the end of dilly and insane rule which the community aspect stopped due to lack of time) which is what made Mineswine so unique the fact that for once the owners weren't in it for the business side they just wanted to make cool things within this cool game which they equally admired.

    When Mineswine was at its peak they had a beautiful system of everything aesthetically and back end (another crucial component). Overall that drove the community forwards until they hit a breaking point, this was all due to balance dilly and insane were community driven and had great game design ideas nearly everyone enjoyed, but when it came to business, it was all kind of meh. The shop was a mess of packages and prices and the best part was honestly the look of it.

    Here I think it's quite the opposite, as if the see-saw has flopped sides, which is how it is for over 90% of other mc servers. It seems (from first impressions) that what drives you guys is just getting things done, which is a great mindset don't get me wrong, however, it's important to just take a step back sometimes and make sure you're not getting in over your head. I think I speak for everyone on mineswine right now when I say we would rather wait weeks, or months for factions and creative to be done so long as they're done with the end-user in thought. Right now when I go on creative I see plugins smashed together in a hurried attempt to get some busywork for the community, and I say that in the nicest most honest way possible.

    I'm definitely not saying I wish we had our old owners back, it's just I wish their previous successes and mistakes had a bigger impact on what you guys thing when making this new server. I really really love this server (as if writing more than I did for my last English essay hasn't proven it already), and I, and everyone on Mineswine, don't want to see it turned into something different. Everyone here especially you guys share a common motivation which is to get Mineswine back to where it was, and there is no short, quick easy way to that and tons and tons of dedicated people in the community are willing to help out (seriously, just watch how manny apps you get on Friday).

    P.S.
    Sorry for writing so much please don't just "skim over" it. I tried to make everything as relevant as possible to the current situation and I hope you guys can take this constructive criticism into account when you are working on re-making the server.

    EDIT #1:
    Factions is a good starting point too, the yellow and light purple colors need to be in EVERYTHING this is mineswine, show it! Don't leave plugins left alone maybe don't custom code everything but on old Mineswine it definitely looked like it, try and learn from the aesthetic style they had especially on the hub, just take that and build on it, there is no need to restart there.

    All I can say about the new staffs progress is that they have accomplished more in a few days than it took for all the admins combined to complete in a few months.... Dang Indie, you should've bought mineswine sooner, I would've loved to see those admins out to work sooner... GJ!

    Good show sir! Most of that makes sense, and honestly some of that should be taken into consideration.

    So I know this is your opinion, but I just wanted to say a few things. I am sure they will play to release custom plugins and such, but I feel they wanted to release at least a few things so people feel that we are making progress. Sure, we have a pretty basic factions system. I feel that over time they can add unique updates such as events like bosses, a new form of raiding, and many other cool things like that. Since we are just starting out though, I feel we are at a decent pace. I will agree that custom is a major for lots of people, so the more unique we are with different ideas that actually work and are fun for everyone, the better. Community suggestion will also attract tons of players, if they take ideas and advice from players. Anyways I do agree with you on everything else, just wanted to say what I thought on terms on pre - coded plugins rather then custom.

    Props to you mate you guessed it xD.

    Another misconception about that post is that I wasn't saying it as if, oh my god we have new owners and they're making so many mistakes oh no. I was just pointing out my opinion on a first impression and my main point was about balancing community input and running a business which is (in my opinion) a reason why we don't have dilly & insane around rn.

    Fun Fact: Admins couldn't really do anything back then just a little things and now they have proper devs unlike back then where they had just 2?
