CedarCraft was founded on 26th September 2011 - over nine years ago. Over this time, this incredible community has produced everything from long-lasting friendships, loving relationships and a place for everyone to come together and enjoy their time. It's not been entirely blissful the whole time of course; there have been lows as well as highs along the way: as there is in any environment - but unlike any other community we held strong and made it work. I never would have expected that this game and this server that I rent (due to your generous donations through VIP packages) sitting in a rack in a random london datacenter would ever have achieved what it has done. For this I am so, so proud of this community and everything we have done here.
And this is why I am finding it currently very painful to be announcing my resignation from CedarCraft as owner and as a staff member. All of our journeys through through life are very different, and sometimes they reach a point where you can no longer continue doing the things that you wish you could. My new career path that I started in the last year has meant that I have very little free time any more to commit to CedarCraft (and even less energy when the time does arise!). I have, of course, seen the effect that this has had on the server and community in the last few months - giving CedarCraft and your community a sense of being neglected and not well upkept. This was not my intention but clearly continuing as owner was likely to do more harm than good.
In light of this, and after many discussions to ensure that the CedarCraft community can continue to thrive going forward, I am extremely happy to announce VeritasLuxMea as the new owner of CedarCraft. After joining us soon after the server opened and having been an administrator here with us for the last 5 years I am certain that our community will continue to grow and thrive going forwards under his leadership.
I will remain part of this amazing community, even if not a member of staff, and I'll be around on here, the community discord and on the game server. Thank you all so much for being part of something special and with your continued support of our community going forwards.
All the best and I'll see you around,
