Hey everyone, Thanks for bearing with us while we looked into the things that were broken by the 1.3 update. Aikar found a huge part of what was causing the problem and we pushed an update to all servers today. As far as we can tell the following issues seem to have been taken care of for the most part: Disappearing pistons Strange rollbacks from chests, inventories & residences Furnaces and brewing stands are now working in town again Some minor lag issues should be less noticeable Of course we can't promise everything is okay in the world of Minecraft (will we ever be able to? lol) but as far as we know we're on the right path to things being normal again. We of course will be keeping a close eye on things and always looking to improve where we can. For now, we know that everyone lost a lot of things due to this update and unfortunately can't replace every individual thing lost, but we are putting up a 1.3 Recovery Rupee Fund until Tuesday at midnight (Eastern Time). Click this link to receive your funds. We were going to have the fund be 1.3K rupees for the 1.3 update, but I think we're feeling a little dyslexic today and accidently made it 3.1K. Edit 8/24/12 (11:00PM EST): It appears a few people are still experiencing the disappearing issue for items. Please be careful with doing anything major yet until we get it figured out. We are getting much less reports of it happening, so hopefully we're close to finding it. Edit 8/25/12 (8:16PM EST): Looks like some of the above things that were fixed for a while are now back again. We're still looking into the strangeness that is causing this to happen.
