    Head Admin Changelog and Announcements

    November 2019 Changelog Nerdnu's 2019 Financial update posted - November 2, 2019
  2. Hello everyone! As promised, here is our 2019 NerdNu Financial Update. During the 2019 fundraiser, we received $3,259.30 in donations($135.31 of that was taken for fees). Typically, we like to ensure that we have more than a year worth of funding. We are currently sitting around two years. We are currently paying for two servers - the primary one where PvE, Creative, Event, Chaos, the main site, and the forums run while the secondary server hosts the wiki, map downloads, and development servers. Our current contract that started last year (and came with fancy new hardware) is a three year contract for $118USD/month and the secondary box is approximately $51USD/month. The forums are still $25USD every six months. We also have some fees to register the wiki domain, Nerd.nu domain, and to pay for some S3 backups. Below is a summary of our expenses since the last fundraiser, and the document we use to track expenses can be seen here. And as requested, our Fundraiser Feedback Post can be found here! We have been discussing next year's fundraiser and the possibility of donating either a portion or all of the donations for 2020 to a reputable charity. In previous years, we had donated to Child's Play, a game industry charity dedicated to improving the lives of children with toys and games. We would love to hear your thoughts on this idea and will be bringing it up again with you when we begin planning for 2020's Fundraiser. Cheers, -The Head Admin Team pez252, fazaden, ttsci, & defiex

    Hello Rieng, Since your banning moderator is no longer on staff, I'll be handling your appeal. Here's some info about your ban for documentation purposes: As it has been over two years, I'll go ahead and unban you. Please be cognizant of other player's builds in the future and please make sure you are familiar with our rules. Welcome back and have fun!

    Head Admin Suggestion Box

    October 2019 Lobby SuggBox - fixed! via Creative Suggbox - Do a donation drive for advertising only and use that money to buy ads on subreddits like /r/gaming and /r/minecraft so we can get more users (moved forward from last month) The new nerd.nu/staff page no longer shows past staff beyond most recent staff. Could this be fixed back to including everybody? The staff page is linked to our forums. If the staff member no longer has a forum account, then they will not show up on the staff page. With the massive amount of lag we see from 1.14, with it most likely getting worse in 1.15, why not open a Win10 Edition Server? put modreq in lobby 😛 check out 9984 67 9992 - was that sign always here?
