In Regards to The Waffloid Server

hihowareya,

As many of you know, I haven’t been doing much to the server as of late, let alone logging on in general. Most of you probably know that my YouTube channel has received tremendous growth over the past few months, and that’s in part to me dedicating more time to it. Over the summer I started uploading 2 videos a day, 13 videos a week, and that took up most of my time. I may continue uploading 2 videos a day to please my newfound 40,000 or so subscribers I’ve gained in the past few months. This on top of me planning on going back to college next semester, and of course keeping a decent social life, would mean I would neglect this server that much more.

So I have decided that I would no longer be supporting The Waffloid Server. The server has had a good run, going from March 9, 2013 until now. It has had its ups and downs. Player surges here and there, though generally stagnant through the years. And that’s not necessarily a bad thing, the server was never really meant to grow. But more of just a fun place for my subscribers to hang out and play Minecraft together and occasionally with me. So, once the current payment has been used up, I will no longer be paying for The Waffloid Server, and it will be discontinued for good. The last payment will keep the server up until November 4th, 2015. I just wanted to give everyone a notice in advance rather than just ending the server out of nowhere.

I hope you all had a great time on the server, I know I did, but all good things must come to an end.

– Waffle

PS: If you want to donate to keep the server running, please don’t. I’m not discontinuing the server because of money. So please save your money. And speaking of donations, if the server gets any donations for ranks or anything from now until November 4th, I’ll just donate it to a charity since I won’t be using it towards the server anyway. So if you have a favorite charity, leave a comment down below, and if we do get any donations, I’ll take whatever’s in the server’s paypal + match it using my own personal money and donate it to that charity on November 4th.

      I’ll put a download up for the survival worlds and anyone can host them on their own server and have a pseudo Waffloid Server if they want. Since it’s essentially a vanilla survival server, you wouldn’t need to do much to continue playing with friends on the same worlds with your own server.

    You can’t just end the server. There are a lot of people who love this server. This is my favorite Minecraft server. Please don’t end it!!!

    Maybe an admin could take over the server. I think that’s a good idea.

      There’s far too much personal information, both mine and those who have played and donated, to just give it away. Plus, I don’t have time to properly train anyone on how the backend of the server works, what files are where, and how to fix the server if X problem arises.

      If you or someone else wants to make their own clone of this server, though, that’s fine by me.

    Let waffle live on in our hearts. We shall always remember you, the ups and downs we had. But more importantly, we shall remember the people we have met and friends we have made. It truly is not about the destination, but about the journey. To Waffle!

    P.S TheWaffleGalaxy is my role model.

      chef has a point, it was good time spent and a good thing while it lasted, even if he had given the server to someone else to manage, whos to say it will be the same? the server has had a good run and I am proud to be apart of it

    It pains me to hear that your beloved server will be closing next month. I’ve spent literally thousands of hours playing on it since joining last year. It’s so wonderful to see how developed it’s become over that time, and I’ve made many friends here.

    I will dearly miss this server. The necessary loss will at least be less painful if I can still scamper around the map with my horses. ^_^
    Thank you for running such a lovely server for so many years. It was a treasure.

    NO WAFFLE, DON’T YOU DO THAT! IF YOU DO I SWEAR TO GOD YOU BETTER GIVE ME MY MONEY BACK!!!! THIS IS MY FAVOURITE SERVER, DON’T BE A SHANKY CHILD, PLEASE YOU’LL LOOSE SO MANY SUBSCRIBERS IF YOU DO! IT MIGHT EVEN BE THE END TO YOUR CHANNEL, BECAUSE YOUR SERVER GETS A LOT OF ATTENTION NOW BY OTHER MODS AND HELPERS! PLEASE DO NOT DO THIS, IT WOULD BE A MISTAKE FOR YOU AND YOUR FANS! PLEASE WE ALL LOVE THIS SERVER! PLEASE!!!

      I haven’t advertised the server on my channel for a good 6 months, and I don’t advertise my channel on my server. So the two aren’t correlated in any way besides on this website.

      All rank and donation transactions are final. I only refund if there were complications with the transaction or an accident with the amount/rank. I can’t revoke your rank and give you a refund, because the server will no longer exist. You don’t go to a restaurant, pay for a meal, get your meal and enjoy your meal, then demand a refund when the restaurant closes down a year later.

    I don’t know what to say. I have been on this server for just about 2.5 going on 3 years, and I am heart broken to say the least. I have had all good times on it, and I have nothing against Waffle shutting it down, because it’s his decision and not mine. Nothing has been more fun for me in Minecraft than this server. Thank you, Waffle.

    2 things, waffle why did the server go down TODAY on SEPTEMBER 5th?! and B. why cant you just shange the name, logo, and IP and give it to a dedicated player that can keep it running?…

      Now every time the server crashes, everyone will think it’s closing early. I very clearly gave a closing date in the post above, and you’re just disregarding that and thinking it’s closing early. I don’t know why you would even trust me if you think that’s the case.

      Even if I did give it to someone, they would have to have extensive knowledge of running a server, diagnosing problems, and of course must be able to afford ~$50/mo out of their own pocket to pay for hosting since the server doesn’t generate much money.

    Chef, maybe you haven’t seen anyone on the server because you haven’t been on it. Everyone that’s posted something about this topic has been on the server. And why do you have time to post stuff on the website but not time to get on the server.

      I look on the live map everyday to see what’s going on, whenever I go on all I do is fly around anyway waiting for people to ask me to do something. Unlike you and most people I’m not a kid and don’t have all the time in the world to play. Instead I’m at college working and making a life for myself

    Thank you, everyone I’ve been on for over 2 years it hurts to say goodbye but I think it’s time Mod or not. Waffle, thank you for all the memories with everything meeting you was the best, being a Mod was the greatest. I will remember all of you who I met and I wish all of you luck. Maybe a Wafflloid will create another server and post about it. I will remember all my projects, and those of you who helped on them. Waffle, I completely understand all the choices made, once again, goodbye everyone and Glory to Artsorska.

    I have created a server thanks to waffle yet it also had to get put down, this truly makes me sad though, that my most favorite server is getting shut down. Makes me wanna start hosting again just for this server. I’m really gonna miss all the epic mods and waffle, you all were very kind and I appreciate every moment as your the reason I started to like multiplayer. Skullgamer85 and I have met on here and she was one of my close friends on here. All I can hope is that some day you start a new server and continue your legend, after all I tried doing what you do and still to this day you’ve done it better:) good luck waffle!

    Don’t get me started on how much this has made me cry. It has made me realize more. I have barely played the waffle server because of PvP. I would always come on, too see my great friends, never to find an end. I have had unbeleiveable time played on Mcgamer, and other servers. I have only played the waffle server for 7.85 days, but much more on other servers. I will always miss this server, and all the good, or miserable things that have happened to it. If we ever find a new server, I’m sorry. And PS I’m totally not crying right now (ok i am)

    The memories from this server are some of the best I’ve had while playing Minecraft. The big party a long time ago with Waffle and 16 other people, the amazing towns built by all the users, and especially the community and all the friends I’ve come across. Even tho I’ve been busy with school lately and haven’t been on the server in several months, I’m sad to see it go. BTW, if someone can create a pseudo waffloid server, pls do and put the IP in the comments.
