Hello, Covers!
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 crucially the 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...

Cove Server Maintenance


Hello Covers, today whilst we have been doing some work towards an upcoming update to Cove, we have encountered a few problems. We are experiencing quite a few issues with the server and, unfortunately, that will cause for some server downtime. Make sure to not panic because we will be back up soon, we are very sorry for any inconvinience caused. The worst case scenario for the server coming back online is in a few days. Thank you for your time.

UPDATE 1:
We are applying a few new updates to our network and switching to a much faster host. Meaning, we'll be down for a little longer, but will be back better and stronger. Sorry for any inconvenience.

UPDATE 2:
Woah, we've been down for a long time! Almost two weeks now. Expect a teaser/release soon!

UPDATE 3:
We're almost done... A bigger and better Cove is coming very soon. Expect less lag and a much better...​

Hello, community. This is my first ever, publicly produced, thread. I have been offered the challenging task to civilly discuss our recent outburst of community issues and to act upon the feedback on which you provide us with.

When Cove 2.0 was released, which was around three weeks ago today, it didn't just bring a new generation of custom coded plugins; it also delivered a new generation of staff members. Whilst the staff team rapidly increased, so did the disorderliness of our senior staff team. Without any protocols nor solutions to rescue the ever so slowly derailment of our staff team, teaching our staff to be professional was our number one priority. Once I was given the necessary equipment to begin my work, I pursued in making the staff team...

When Cove first launched, it was using standard Bukkit plugins. In order to improve it, we started programming our own plugins. It all started with the "Free For All" being customized, we then moved on to the 1v1. During Cove 1.0, we had a lot of issues: multiple bugs and memory leaks. This has now evolved into a well designed custom system, providing features and opportunities for new and better game modes. Ladies and gentlemen, we bring you Cove 2.0.

First of all, I would like to thank everyone for being so patient and waiting for Cove to re-launch. It has been a hard working two months. We are yet resolving issues such as whether or not to use NoCheatPlus(NCP), fixing a few bugs here and there and making our gameplay more balanced. Moving on.

With Cove 2.0, we wanted to make our system function better. We have acheived this by resolving bugs, rewriting code and carefully thinking our system through. We have applied excessive amounts of improvements to all of...​
