Two bits of news.
1) The /pweather command is now enabled for all players! Similar to /ptime, /pweather allows players to set their in-game weather within their Minecraft client without affecting anything server-side. Type in /pweather help in-game for more info.
2) City Rank Candidate Batch #5 is now open

We are always excited to evaluate your cities and to see the progress everyone is making. However, please ensure that your application is submitted on time. We will not accept late applications.
Wiki permissions are restricted to Trustee and above for security reasons. If you are Trustee but don't have permissions to edit any pages please send an e-mail to email@example.com and you will be given the rank as soon as possible.
