Congratulations to, 12dj on being the 10,000th unique player to log in to our server. In an incredible 23 days, Cove, and its community, has attracted a whopping 10,000 players. It is also worthy to mention that this tally began on the 20th of August, 2014. Now, remember, this count up only started when Cove 2.0 launched (20th August). Before then, we reached around 20,000 unique players. Though, the count down restarted at the launch of Cove 2.0. Without a doubt, this is one of the greatest landmarks Cove, as a server, has ever achieved.
Nonetheless, another milestone that is credible to remark upon, is our accomplishment to sustain an astounding 153 players on-line at one time....
Main message: Applicants must be fifteen years or more to apply for a position of moderator.
Yikes. Most, if not all of us, are back at school. The summer rush is over, and our player base is now beginning to stabilise. For that reason, the administration have decided to increase the age needed to apply for a moderator position. Although this will be a disappointment for some, it will now help the staff team stabilise in size and the senior staff team can now look forward in training our current, twenty two, moderators!
We have an astounding amount of waiting applicants, too. Therefore, we could manage to hit twenty five moderators very soon and that is just the correct size for our server. We are always welcoming new candidates for the position, though, we are cracking down on the difficulty of being accepted and assigning much stricter policies when accepting a candidate. Expect the acceptance to denial ratio to decrease.
In addition to our current offer, we have been spending the last couple of days revamping our donation ranks. Below is a list of the old and new ranks: Emerald > Iron Diamond > Gold
[No rank] > Diamond Quartz> Emerald
To put it into much more simpler terms, here is a screenshot of our four ranks, including their prices!:
I've now worked here for 9 months, and boy is it going to be memorable. The amount of useful things I've learned here is immense. When I founded Cove, it received a lot of recognition, recognition that lifted it off the ground. Back then, we were merely a group of 4 people. 3 have now left. Resulting in (you guessed it) me being the last active 'founder'. Fortunately, this thread is not intended to announce a resignation. It's intended to announce my leave of absence, which will end before the summer holidays in mid 2015.
Why are you leaving?
The reason for me leave is school. I'm not going to go in-depth on the subject. Simply stated: I can't entirely focus on my education without having minor involvement with Cove. Therefore, my account will be deactivated.
So, who'll be running things?
Before I continue, I'd like to state that @Matthew is superior to all staff members.
We're introducing a new rank. This rank will be applied to...
The majority of the CoveMC administration, modelling an expected selfie screenshot
From the Curiosity rover to the South Korean president, the introduction of Smartphones – most cruciallythe front facing camera which came along in 2010 – made the selfie go viral. Due to its phenomenon, the Cove administration have decided to run a competition that is intertwined with this current trend.
Why has this been produced? Despite the prize being aimed more towards our forum members, this competition has been produced to break the barrier between staff and regular members. It will allow the opportunity for regular members to interact with the varying types of staff members and to take some really cool selfies. How do I take part?
To take part in this unique opportunity, all you need to do is to...

1. Respect all staff members and their decisions: If it be a moderator you’re talking to or an administrator, we expect respect at all times. Simply by listening to our staff or abiding by their instructions is viewed as respect.
Although you may disagree on some decisions made by our staff team, we ask you to trust our judgement and have belief that we are doing it for the good of our community.
We have a zero tolerance attitude towards the users who disobey our staff. However, if you truly believe the staff member in question is incorrect, report it to a higher ranked staff member.

We are online, at this moment! Feel free to login. We believe that this is the last downtime, but we do have a few networking issues where players randomly time out. We are looking into this as we speak. We do not think we need any downtime to fix this.
