Hi guys!

First of all, I'd like to apologize for the current state of PixelPrison and all of the broken promises that were made. My intentions were not of this nature at all, it just kind of happened. Let me start by saying that I take full responsibility for disappointing everyone, this had nothing to do with any of the staff members and all blame should be directed towards me. So I've had a long time to think about what I've wanted to do with Pixel and I've come to the conlusion that prison simply is not enjoyable for me to administrate, manage and develop for. I've had some really good times on Pixel but it's become more of a undesired job for me rather than a fun hobby that brings me joy and entertainment. Rather than completely abandoning Pixel and everything that I have achieved so far on Minecraft, I've instead decided to contribute my spare time into the development of a new project, a new server. For the time being, I will not disclose too much information regarding my new project other than the type of gamemode it will be. @_maou and I are working together to create an MMO RPG type gamemode in Minecraft, one with classes, abilities, guilds, unique mobs and boss batles, dungeons, ranked pvp, etc. We currently do not have an ETA on this yet but I can assure everyone that this will become a reality rather than an abandoned concept. You may notice the website undergo a lot of change and eventually the rebranding from PixelPrison to something better fitting for the gamemode type.

What about everything I've donated for?
All of those who have purchased premium ranks on the web store will be given closed beta passes to access the server once we feel the we are ready to accept beta testers. On top of that, everyone will receive the ranks/packages equivalent to what they have previously had on Pixel on the new server. Please do note that this new server will be completely EULA friendly so the price drop in packages will be substantial....

Hey there soon-to-be Pixel "veterans",

With the reset slowly coming up (no confirmed date yet!), we're having one final sale to get the current, awesome Pixel Prison ranks at a greatly reduced price.

Currently, the sale is set at 75% off for everything in the store. After the reset, you will retain this rank and all of the perks with it, but we'll be excluding the "pay-to-win" perks for the ranks purchased after the reset in accordance with the EULA, and including more flashy, game-friendly cosmetics, as well as other bonus perks(to be announced!). More information will be released at a further date once we have all of the groundwork laid out, but we'll be sure to keep you guys in the loop!

You can visit our webstore HERE.

If you have any questions regarding donating, feel free to contact, Reminant, vultra, or _maou via forum pm or in-game message.

Kidding, It's actually "End User License Agreement" and it's not actually as cynical as I made it sound.

What is it?
Essentially, when you run a Minecraft server – whether it be a personal server for you and your siblings to access locally or a public prison server like ours – you MUST agree to Mojang's EULA first. The EULA is a "legal contract between a software developer or vendor and the user of the software. It specifies in detail the rights and restrictions that apply to the software.". When translated, this means that Mojang can tell us what we can do with our server and what we cannot do with our server.

Well, what does it have to do with PixelPrison...?
Recently, Mojang has hired a team dedicated to cracking down on servers that are violating the terms of the EULA which they have agreed to. More specifically, they are cracking down on servers which are violating their EULA by selling progress on servers through their web stores. This includes things such as purchasing in-game currency, kits, special non-cosmetic and game altering perks/items, etc. We happen to be one of those servers, sadly.

What happens now?
We are more than willing to comply with Mojang's EULA as soon as possible. Their intentions are not cynical, they're just trying to eradicate all of the pay to win servers and create a much more balanced community, it's completely understandable and reasonable. This means the server store will be completely redone, most – if not, all – packages will be completely redone and dropped significantly in price. Ranks will be stripped of most of their perks and they will only contain cosmetic benefits. All perks that effect game-play that are currently included in rank packages will be made unlockable/purchasable through in-game methods. There is still much more that the staff team and I have to decide upon before finalizing things, but this is just a brief outline of what's going to go down.

Will I keep everything I've...
