Mastodon and A Brave New World

After a week of tinkering with Mastodon, I’m pleased to announce that as of today, we have brought the server out of beta and into the public! With Mastodon, the Nofftopia community now has a new way to communicate, share ideas, and keep in contact with your buds. Check it out @ Social.nofftopia.com

With Mastodon fully operational, I will now be focusing my time perfecting the Nofftopia Minecraft server; the first phase will be creating a new world! While the old maps have served us well, a new world is needed in order to maintain stability. We will need people to volunteer to help build a new spawn, as well as helping us come up with a new name for our brave new world. 

If you have any suggestions for our new worlds name, go over to Social.nofftopia.com and let us know!

Until next time… ✌🏼❤️

Looking for beta testers

I’m happy to announce that Nofftopia has a beta Mastodon Instance up and running now and we are looking for users to help test it out!

Mastodon is a new social media, similar to twitter, but with a few major differences. One major difference is having three timelines instead of one. For example: 

  • Home Timeline: This timeline is used to see all your posts, as well as the posts from those you follow. 
  • Local Timeline: This timeline is used to see all the posts from within the same instance. So you will be able to see all posts from within the Nofftopia community!
  • Federated Timeline: This timeline is used to see all posts from across ALL instances. This is generated based off users in the Nofftopia Instance following users from within other instances. 

If you need would like more information on Mastodon, check out The Verge’s guide to Mastodon LOCATED HERE.

If you would like to help beta test our Instance and improve our community, please register at social.nofftopia.com

Send me a message on Mastodon, or leave a comment below with your experience.

*Disclaimer: Since this service is currently in beta – your posts may be deleted when we exit our beta phase and launch publicly!

Quickie

Just another quick announcements:

I’ve added a few new discussions to our Forums page – I’d you’d like to see any other topics added, let me know.

We are also looking for new mods to help with daily operations on the Nofftopia server. If you are interested, send me a tweet @Nofftopia, or leave a comment below!

March Update

What A Long Strange Trip Its Been!
Its been a long time guys – as of this week, Nofftopia is now fully up to date with the latest version of Minecraft. Everything is running smoothly, though there are currently a few plugins disabled until a fix is found. All the old worlds are still intact. If you find any bugs, please report them preferably on Twitter @Nofftopia, or on this website.

The update could not have been made possible without the help of DWJ, and you can thank YummyMayonnaise for bug hunting.

The main focus right now will be shifted over to modernizing our website and getting the forums back up.

Whelp, I’ve never been good with these posts, so that’s all I got for now. PEACE
