When we did the server transfer we came to the unfortunate realization that our hourly backups have been crashing due to a rate limit we did not know about.
The database somehow got wiped, and we have no backups. This was in no way intentional and was a mix of several things going wrong at the same time.
This means: Jobs, LWC, Achievements, McMMO, Ranks (Donor and in-game), Permissions, Titles you've used & Towny data (Towns, residents, plots) has been deleted. Even on Skyblock. What wasn't deleted: The world, items(inventories, backpacks, enderchests), Skyblock islands and challenges.
While we were determining our options we found that a hard reset would have to happen in the future to update to 1.13. More information about this can be found here.
We also found that the cons outweighed the pros on keeping...
Here for an (un)limited time, the Maestrean carnival! Enjoy the thrill of rides held together with a single screw, see the amazing half-woman, half-giraffe, and most importantly, all the cotton candy you can eat! "Didn't Sideshow take over the Carnival" you say? Nonsense! These fairgrounds are still family fun in the fading sun! Bring your friends, bring your family, and bring your souls smiles!

So, let's let sleeping dogs lie, and get right to it, the Weekly Update! A-weema-weh, a-weema-weh, a-weema-weh, a-weema-weh...

A Challenger Approaches!
You may be wondering, "Why did we not get last Sunday's update?" Well, two reasons. One, I went on vacation and got some rest. Two, we released so much stuff last weekend, fixed so many bugs this week, and overall had sooo much going on that we decided to just have a super awesome mega DOUBLE post this week!
For those of you celebrating Independence day this week, you could say we wanted to kick off the Summer Brawl event with a BANG (that somehow blew up last week's updates. That's reasonable, right?)
Brace yourselves, the updates are coming! (Updates kept in order of release for clarity)
Greetings all Maestreans! Good morning/afternoon/evening to you all! We hope everyone has enjoyed their time playing yet another great and content filled month here at Maestrea, and can you believe it? Glad everyone has still had time to vote while duking it out against all the new and great dungeon content!
Thanks to everyone for voting and supporting the server once again this June!
Attention all Agents, report for duty immediately!
We've received reports of some mysterious figures lurking around a nearby volcano. It's up to you figure out what they're up to, and bring an end to it.
Your Senior Agent might not be able to join you, but don't worry: We've got just the thing for the job.
With an upgrade to your previous radio, you can keep in touch with your mentor, and even keep track of your current objectives. (Note: D3 takes place primarily through the use of this new radio feature! If for some reason you lose it, you MUST restart, or contact an Admin.)
As this Dungeon is more dangerous, you will be required to rank up to Field Agent to ensure you've recieved ample training.
But most importantly, be on the look out for signs of Black Nova, a criminal organization on the rise...
We be plundering the seas in search of the finest treasures! Me hearties and I be bringing ye landlubbers our bounties of updates, fixes and new content! So hoist the anchor, mate, we're setting sail into the Weekly Update!
I certainly don't. What kind of baker only makes muffins? Personally I prefer cakes. But pastry preferences aside, there's one thing I do know - and that's that Maestrea is awesome and always strives to have a better tomorrow. And that means having updates! So many updates, so little time. Maybe the Muffin Man can whip you up some snacks for an even better update-reading-experience?
Enjoy your fresh-baked Maestrea-filled Updates!
He'll start asking what's new on Maestrea. To which we say, "There are these awesome posts on the forums that tell you all the updates for the week. We're pretty sure they're written by a duck, but that duck could also be a cat on the duck's laptop. Cool, right?"
Yes. Very cool. And the mouse thinks so too. But it also wants a glass of milk.
Greetings all Maestreans!
Good morning/afternoon/evening to you all! We hope everyone has enjoyed their time playing yet another great and content filled month here at Maestrea, and can you believe it? Halfway through 2018 already and it's Summertime (unless you're Australian like me and you've copped the freezing Winter)! Time really does fly when you're having fun
Thanks to everyone for voting and supporting the server once again this May!
And we've got the perfect blend of updates to keep you on the cutting edge of all the things going on around the server. Want new relics? Check out the new challenge! Want to know what else Content team is working on? See their agenda below! Summer break may be around the corner, but for Maestrea, it's out of the frying pan and into the fire with awesome new content being spiced up for your refined tastes!
We're experiencing some issues with some of our plugins, causing severe lag which makes playing near impossible. I regretfully announce that the server will indefinitely experience some downtime. There is currently no ETA, but we are working to resolve this ASAP.
Hang in there everyone, we'll keep you posted here or on our Discord!
Meanwhile, join us on Discord! We have a direct update / announcement log to keep track of this as it happens, memes and other fun things to make the time go by faster! Click here to join our Discord
A day of savings and money making, what better day to celebrate on Maestrea? Our features and fixes are as ever-changing as our economy, so be sure to check out the treasure-trove of updates we have for you this week!

Cloudy with a chance of Content! From a shady mist settling over us earlier this week, to cool new stuff, we've got the last info right here on Channel 4 Newstrea! Don't fret if this update seems a little light though. A quick peek at the Content Team Agenda may give you hints at what's to come
Hello everyone! Hope you're all having a great week so far and exams are going well, just sharing some great news for the server!
We've been approved for Tebex Merchandise, it's a partner program with the people behind Buycraft allowing us to sell Merchandise!
So far, we've added 2 products (Mousepad and unisex t-shirt) but we'll be adding some more in the future.
The process for ordering is simple, go to our store : http://donate.maestrea.com/category/1161096 and order it like you'd order anything else.
Here's some generated pictures of them:
I'll be ordering some myself to get some better pictures for the store and to test the quality, but feel free to buy some if you feel like it
A line that started one of the most memorable quests of our time, and now the headline to this week's update! Which is fitting, when the Content team has a lot to say this week. But that's not all, we've got plenty to share that don't involve monster bashing (Though arguably not as fun). No matter the strength of your adventurous spirit, we hope you enjoy yet another week of Maestrea Mash ups!
