I have decided to close the server just shy of its 3rd birthday. It may come as no shock to anyone, but I have grown increasingly disenfranchised with Minecraft - save for a few spurts of enthusiasm over the last year.
I want to take this opportunity to applaud Deadlock for all of his hard and thankless work. I am eternally thankful for his willingness to take my seat; to build such a beautiful map, create custom plugins, and to create such a positive environment for our players. His triumph was where I failed and I'm in awe. Thank you.
Darkanjel: Up until Deadlock took over, you were my secret server ninja. Thanks for all the countless late nights helping manage and optimize the server. I still have no idea what I'm doing :)
Cithryth: you are an asset to the gaming community and will continue to be wherever you end up. I felt that we both connected with our sense of duty to the HH community. I'll continue to subscribe to your YouTube Channel and hope that we can work together again in the future. Whenever I got an email from you it was usually bad news ;P
Tobake, one of our oldest players, despite being one of the youngest. You always have something to say and your enthusiasm is contagious. Thanks for being here all these years.
Limitforce & Whigwam: You might never see this, but I miss you guys and thanks for everything you did to help me get here. I still remember the days of cloudport. I can only assume you're both busy doing great things.
To all the donators: Thank you so much for supporting the server for these past years. Without you and your contributions, we never would have made it this far. It's remarkable how generous you all have been. Thank you.
To everyone else I missed: This is probably because I spent very little time in-game. Sorry we couldn't get to know each-other better.
To everyone who got banned: Shut up you deserved it.
It has been a tremendous learning experience and I have met so many wonderful people. But sadly, I can't hold this candle any longer without burning my fingers. The server will shut down September 1st 2013. If anyone else would like to take over, please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org, otherwise we will host the server map in Dropbox for anyone who wants it.
