(y) It is complete!!! The forum maintenance and upgrades have successfully been applied. Here are a few things which have changed; some of the features I've forgotten about and you might find their features later or I'll update this post.

New Features
  • Brand new theme! Thanks for @StormyFox2044, @BoltHead, and @NickP for all their help!
    • Craftyn Branded/Colors
    • Responsive - aka: mobile friendly!
  • Update Xenforo to the latest version, allows us to keep things up to date and fight spam
  • More smilies!
  • Easier tagging people
  • Newer shoutbox, colors and new smilies supported.
  • Font Awesome icons in posts

Removed Features:
  • Events and RSVPing - the addon which did this is no longer supported and broke the forums when we left it installed. We are sad to see this go, but we will keep an eye out for new options which come up
  • Old and worn out generic Minecraft Theme

Starting later today Friday night (cst) and possibly lasting until Saturday afternoon, the forums will be down for maintenance. We hope that it doesn't last that long, but you can never know for sure.

Thanks for understanding and we look forward to some amazing forums after the maintenance is done. :D

Edit: The maintenance has been moved to start tomorrow, I started to do it tonight...
Ever since banners appeared with 1.8 I have wanted a custom banner for Craftyn to put around Mirabil and other places. I didn't want the banner to just come from me but wanted the community's opinion on it so I decided a banner making contest would probably be the best route to do it. So, with that idea this contest was born!

If a banner is picked from the entries, it will become the official banner for Mirabil and Craftyn Towny. Due to this we have a few requirements for it:
  • Not be copied from somewhere
  • Doesn't have to be limited to Survival, can be made with command blocks
  • Contain Craftyn colors, blue and gold (yellow works too)
  • Be recognizable as a Craftyn banner
  • Screenshot taken with default resource pack
The contest details are as follows:
  • Starts: 3/8/15
  • Ends: 3/22/15 @ midnight cst
  • Submit to: This thread with screenshots
If we do pick a banner from the submitted ones, then that banner will be the winner! There can only be one winner from the entries, so take your time and provide a quality entry. You can enter multiple times, but only one will be picked as a winner. The winner gets the following:
  • 250 donation tokens
  • 7,500 mirs
  • Banner named and enchanted (you won't want to place it down since the enchantments go bye bye)
Good luck to all and I can't wait to see the designs!
