A New Chapter for CedarCraft

Recommended Posts

Hello CedarCraft,

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,

I hope your new path treats you well John I to have grown over the years. Because of CC I have been able to stay in contact with some friends I've made 8 years ago. All thanks to you and the staff for keeping it going. It is true I'm not as active as I once was however, I do occasionally log on to see what has changed over time. It's been an amazing journey seeing CC through the years and how you and your team have added new features to further strengthen the server. It's still hard to wrap my head around the fact that I've been around CC since 2012. All the memories I have, all the friends I've made, all the builds I've created. Because of your vision I've been able to enjoy all those things.

For that I am incredibly grateful to you John for all the hard work you have put into CC and for that I wish you all the best with your future endeavors. 

Oh.. I guess one positive thing comes from you stepping down, you don't have to deal with all my antics anymore 🙂

Hey John!

A good decision for the server. It will be nice to drop in and see how things are going from time to time, yeah?

As many have said, the community you started is a very special one. This is mostly down to decisions you made about the focus towards certain styles of play on the server. In general promoting a friendly atmosphere and a positively creative virtual world in which enriching connections can be made with other players. No other server manages to blend specific aspects of the game together so effortlessly into a positive online experience. And of all the things that must remain on the server long term I think this is the most important.

VeritasLuxMea thank you for taking the reins and keeping things going we are all eager to help in any way we can.



P.S Have a great Christmas and New Year.
