MRTNewsChannelLogo.png BREAKING NEWS: MRT Server down due to CoreProtect until Thursday MRTNewsChannelLogo.png

UPDATE at 10:28 AM EDT June 13: The estimated time of the return to service has been pushed back until Noon EDT on Thursday.

UPDATE at 3:23 PM EDT June 12: Frumple has stated that the server will likely not return to service until around 11 PM EDT on Wednesday night.

The MRT server was taken down by Frumple on Tuesday morning due to a lag issue caused by CoreProtect. The issue had previously forced Cynra_ to restart the server, and Frumple stated that he saw an "error in the logs." According to Frumple, the plugin ran out of integers to record block changes, meaning that CoreProtect would not log any further block changes and causing the unusual messages to be recorded in the server logs. After sending an announcement about the server downtime, Frumple stated that he was starting an SQL operation to copy a block table to increase the integer limit, which he estimates may take 35 hours. No ETA has been posted yet on when the server may be back up.

On Saturday, a security agreement was released by Frumple. This occurred after a meeting took place between the MRT, represented by Owner Frumple and administrator chiefbozx, and a team of diplomats from WolvHaven led by minebuilder1223, a moderator on WolvHaven. The agreement would create a Discord server which would be accessible by Frumple, Owner SilverWolv of the WolvHaven server, and other players designated by the two. This would allow the servers to share information about bad behavior that players had done on one server as well as warn the other server if someone attempted to use one server to start an attack against the other. Personal information cannot be shared however. This follows several security incidents recently which have involved both servers.

The security agreement will be discussed at the June GSM on June 16th as well as at a meeting of WolvHaven's Parliament, a body of players elected by WolvHaven's general public that enacts policies on that server. It then shall be finalized at a second meeting on June 23rd if "feedback is positive," according to Frumple.

However, Transit Committee member Skelezomperman asked for an extension, noting that almost two days would be taken away by the downtime of the MRT server. Chair hvt2011 complied, proposing a motion to extend the deadline to Monday, June 19 at 2:59 AM EDT.

Of the two "major" awards, Best Airport was won by Achowalogen Takachsin-Covina International Airport, while Outstanding Airline was won by BluAir.
