Major Changes to the WolvHaven experience

Several major changes to the server rules and experience will be coming. Over the past several months, we have been looking at ways to make the server easier to integrate and settle down in, and have identified some pain points raised by newer members of our community.

The most commonly mentioned pain points include:

  • Confusing/Complex rules and regulations
  • Tiresome to go through 3 application forms just to get the full City-Building experience

TLDR; (That’s Too Long, Didn’t Read / To summarize)

  1. These changes are needed to ensure WolvHaven continues to grow
  2. We are re-writing and simplifying the rules
  3. We are relaxing several rules and specifics
  4. We are reducing the no. of applications needed, but strengthening the immigration test
  5. All existing PRs and above will be given Gard/Cali build rights
  6. More transparency on applications for architect, engineer & staff
  7. Pangaea Reset will happen mid-2022, and the replacement world will be given as much care and detail as all our other worlds.
  8. Your help is needed to make this community better, socialise and get to know your fellow WolvHaveners more and help newcomers settle in easier.

Migrating to a new Wiki

Since its introduction in 2014, the WolvHaven wiki has been hosted using a free third party hosting service, known as shoutwiki. While we thank them for providing the service to us, the needs of the community have outgrown what they can offer.

WolvHaven needs a wiki that can be changed, modified, and configured to our needs fast, and to be able to manage wiki editing rights and user accounts in a responsible manner.

Hosting our own wiki has always been a problem; as we are limited by the amount of funding.

Due to the management of the wiki being outsourced, we were often limited by the service which they can provide, which is frustrating for our members.

Server leadership changes 2020

Hello! SilverWolv here. Since the inception of the WolvHaven server in 2011, I have mainly been in charge of overseeing the overall running and managing of the server.

However, all things will come to an end, and I will be moving off to doing my studies in University soon and will no longer be as active as I was last time. As such, I have entrusted several individuals with the responsibility to keep WolvHaven operational well into the future.

WolvHaven is going 1.13

As final testing on 1.13 has shown to be going well, with minor or no major expected disruption to the server experience, we are excited to announce that we are excited that we will be upgrading to 1.13.2 soon

As of now, the tentative date for this upgrade is expected to be on 5 May 2020, from 3AM UTC

Judging from our test server upgrade, this downtime is expected to last between 4 to 6 hours, with the server hopefully ready by 9AM UTC.
