Minecraft has been around for years now and TMV is now over three and a half years old. That's a long time for anyone or anything.
With Mojang being purchased by Microsoft and Notch himself moving on, Bukkit being closed and the EULA making it harder for smaller servers to operate, I believe the time is right to shut down our server.
The players that we had originally are growing up and getting bored of Minecraft, I (Sekonda) have made the decision to close down The Mineville. I am not as interested in it as I was a year ago, and nowhere near as excited as when I first got it and started TMV.
We certainly could not have made it this far without the help and support of everyone that has played or contributed, either as staff donating their time or as players donating for VIP, on our server. I want to say thank you to everyone.
It's been fun,
Simon / Sekonda
