I really have no starting point so I may just jump right in.
A few days ago, our security was breached and we lost valuable information relating to the server. The entire database which keeps all the information about players was deleted. An (Unmamed) developers SSH key was found to have deleted them. After discussing the events with the developer, they claim it was not them that deleted the files, meaning it is a lie, or someone gained access to their information. Regardless of who it was, I have the displeasure of telling you that because of someones actions, we have to completely reset Meep.
With this news being as heart breaking as it is, we are going to need everyone to pull together. I know its not how we wanted to start 2017, but we are left no choice. We are taking this unfortunate circumstance to redo everything YOUR way. You have all asked us to go back to being EULA compliant, focus on towny, and re-balance the economy. With the re-opening of Meep, The long awaited jobs plugin will be released along with Mcmmo, and multiple updates to plugins we were afraid to touch before. This mean many bugs will no longer be an issue.
Along with these updates, The staff team is being redone as well. Many of the rules will be made clearer, many punishments will be lessened, and many of the ways we do things are being revamped. I want to meet with as many of you as possible to go over suggestions for community-staff relations. I may do another stream to talk to all of you more personally and get the ideas in the correct order.
Its easy to focus on the bad but I urge you all to look towards the future. We love you all.
All forms of negativity, discouragement, and toxicity will be removed from this thread.

As @Deljikho explained, the recent tech failure and the EULA issue are isolated and are not related in any way. The timing between both events is coincidental.
We do have backups of the system but the last backup was not recent enough for us to resume gameplay. We are going to make backups more frequent in the update. Thanks for your understanding!
people really don't want to read this thread

- ranks are fine and staying
- it is unclear what perks are staying
- no one knows when the server will be ready
- they are putting their focus towards towny and not minigames at the moment
- there will only be one towns world
- this has nothing to do with the recent blacklisting
- klutch is going to be paying for backup plans out of his own pocket to ensure this never happens again
- the server is not open to the public, that's why there are limited people online helping rebuild it
- bans will be lifted with the reset
- mcmmo/jobs, bug fixes, rule adjustments, less punishments, taking suggestions
With that said, we will be having daily backups as ill pay for them myself. Please relax, and stay positive. Telling us were doing it wrong does not encourage anyone.
I feel like this might be a blessing in disguise and although it sucks and they tried to harm us we will come out on top and be 100% better! I look forward to all the amazing things to come and we appreciate every single one of you old and new meepers! By the "few" comments on this post it's already bringing us closer the positivity and willingness to help us out is amazing so thank you. We wouldn't be able to move forward without you guys thanks for being so awesome and being a big ole family!
Thanks for informing the community on what had happened.
I'll enjoy starting from an equal playing ground again, after not playing for 3 months, I'd really fallen behind. To everyone who's mad just realize this: it's MineCraft - get over it. Only thing I disagree with is this
My post had no intention of being toxic or negative, thanks for this thread.
Also, is alpha and beta gone or is it just Gamma?
Hey Staff. Thanks for all you do for the server. I do hope that the full staff compliment will return and stay with us as staff. We have a group of excellent and dedicated "volunteers" who help run this show, and without them, there would be no Meep. Thank you again guys and looking forward to seeing you soon.....
Well... bye bye to the past..... I am trying not to think of the work done to build.rebuild.and then rebuild /pwarp mc. and the cost involved, not to mention the thousand plus spawners I still had back in alpha, the 15 million saved in gold blocks.... and the 75 million we had in our town bank of shainville, the million I had here in Shroomville, etc.....
Ok, I have lost probably as much as anyone on here, but I will say that this is probably the best of all bad outcomes. The alpha and beta worlds were badly out of date. The gamma world was good, but started off inconsistent with the spawn shop, then no spawn shop, and so forth, allowing unbalances in the economy.
If this is handled correctly, this will turn out for the best. It would be helpful if the community will come together and work together to rebuild this great server.
Just my 2 cents.....
I look forward to breaking ground on my new town soon.....
See you there.

I'm very glad to hear that we are having a reset! Screw my losses, who cares about your town, everyone lost it, if it won't happen again then we are cool.
Ranks will stay, one town world, one economy, one community.
Bring meep back to what it once was. Yes, we are going to do it! Jobs are back, perks are back, hopefully boosters too, everyone gets an equal start.
Meep is taking a giant step towards the future with this, and I'm sure we will be successful.
Since I am addicted to meep, it would be cool if you can bring back minigames asap for us to start making money again before towny I'm tired of other servers meep is my home there is nothing more friendlier than this server.
Thank you for the honesty Klutch
EDIT: Long live Natsu Choice! Long live Boabycorp! Long live all corporations we will not die with towny data
