    Wow... So you're saying the server's been down for nearly two weeks? Just saw this issue now and I'm devastated...

    Mojang blacklist

    from the EULA:
    "You cannot charge real-world cash for in-game currency
    We don’t mind in-game currencies which are earned through playing, but you are not allowed to sell them for real-world cash. Remember - if the stuff you sell affects gameplay, we’re not cool with it."

    I'm almost certain you already know about this, but just in case...

    Just so you know, and in case if you haven't read the threads, perks will stay up, ranks will stay, we can bypass the blacklist, therefore we are most likely not complying with the EULA.

    This was not the cause for the downtime, but thank you for your concern.

    The blacklist bypasses that I can find are all client side, not server. If meep isn't going to comply with the EULA, there will be next to nothing in terms of population growth. What I can see meep doing is giving those who bought ranks prior to this what they paid for and having an in game currency system to get ranks and upgrades. To keep monetization, I wouldn't be surprised if we see the sales of completely cosmetic items/abilities (such as heads, mob disguise, number of homes, player effects, etc). Also, sponsorship and ads are ways we could stay monetized. That's at least what other servers seem to be doing anyways to bypass this.

    This is Mojang's monetisation page if any staff are up for it. It's pretty short, so just a quick read.
