New Elevator Plugin

New Elevator Plugin

Official
Introducing the new Elevator Plugin! Hello WolvHaveners! When we upgraded to Minecraft 1.12.1, we included an advisory for members to refrain from using EasyElevator as the plugin was not updated in a long time and could stop working after a certain point of time. We also expressed our interest in finding a potential replacement plugin and we have recently stumbled upon a promising plugin suggestion, sent by telegram from our friends over at Epsilon. What's going to happen to EasyElevator? Before anyone freaks out, we just want to assure you that EasyElevator won't be going anywhere - at least till it stops working. EasyElevator will continue to coexist with the new Elevator plugin if the trial for Elevator passes. How do I go about installing these swaggy new elevators? Create…

Extended Server Downtime November 2017

Extended Server Downtime November 2017

Official
The server is currently experiencing extended downtime due to unforeseen circumstances. Upon further investigation, the server will remain down until 12 November 2017. Afterwhich we will be migrating to another server which was purchased earlier. What happened?

As a result of a recent DDoS attack, the server reached its bandwidth limitation and as of now, nothing can be done about it until the limit resets on 12 November 2017. Whats being done about it? Upon restoration…

New staff appointment model

New staff appointment model

News, Official
Hello! As you may know, WolvHaven has been selecting and appointing its members of staff through the use of elections since 2012. While the election system has been constantly changed and optimized in order to ensure that it works best in WolvHaven's interests, it has unfortunately reached its maximum potential. The election system has served us well - it ensured that everyone had a say in the people who they want to moderate and look after the server and enabled the council to have better insights to support decision making. (The results of the election are not always definite - any member of council may call for a vote to reject the outcome of the election) However, times change - and so must our staff appointment model. Therefore, we will be…
