The month of March is coming to an end. We have been running server for close to 2 years now and this month was by far the best single month in our history.
We have more then doubled our player base across all servers and were able to generate 5x the number of votes generated last month. We have receive 800 new forum users in the month alone which has almost doubled the number of users registered on the forums.
Since day one my goal for Pitforge has been ambitious and I have faced numerous challenges and barriers in the recent months. I would like to thanks all the dedicated loyal players and mods who have stuck with us durring the good and bad times.
We have taken a huge leap forward in March and we are getting ready to take another huge leap in April. In preparation I will be upgrading both servers.
A new server has been ordered which the PVP server will be migrated to. This new server will double the PVP servers current amount of RAM. Going from 32GB to 62GB of RAM and will also add a boost in CPU power. Hopefully this will allow us to increase the current player cap and provide a better experience for the players.
The survival server will also see extra RAM added. Going from 16GB to 32GB of ram. We will also be introducing a unified voting system across all our servers giving us a better chance to reach the top of server lists and reaching more users.
Thanks again to all the players and staff, lets get ready for April :)
Minecraft 1.5 has a release date! Wednesday March 13th. As ussual our server will not upgrade till bukkit releases a stable version and all our plugins have been tested with the new release. This normally takes a few days so we recommend that you do not download the update when it comes out.
IF YOU UPDATE, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO PLAY OUR SERVERS TILL WE UPDATE
We have a new Ventrilo server for our community members! Bellow you will find the details. Join today!

Hostname or IP: vent.pitforge.com
The kit server (kit.pitforge.com) and the survival server (s.pitforge.com) have been taken down for emergency maintenance. Earlier tonight someone logged into the servers and caused some problems with the server’s kernel and key OS files. I am looking into this incident and hope to have everything up and running soon. Some data loss may have taken place, I am not 100% sure at this point.
UPDATE: Issue has been resolved.
Earlier today Jeb tweeted out an image of a new block called “Quartz” which should make its debut in the next update (the redstone update). The block looks really cool and from the screenshot bellow we should expect to see it in multiple forms, similar to sand stone. No news on how you will be able to craft this in game, perhaps a new ore will be introduced.
No official word on how you will be able to craft these new blocks in game, but I think it is safe to say that it will utilize the new Quartz ore found in the nether.
I am excited to see what you guys build with it.
