Appreciate what you have, cause you never know how long it will be until you don't have it anymore.
Well, its been a week since this server went down. And the support you guys have shown has brought a tear to this minecrafter's eye. But now is the time to accept what has happened. Sublimity Gaming has run its course, as we all knew it must someday.
And from me and the staff to all the players who have been on the server over the years, especially those who have been around through thick and thin, thank you. We wouldn't have made it this far without you.
As a final gift I have gone through my Minecraft Screenshots, and pulled out all of those related to sublimity. Its mostly my stuff I'll admit, but its what happens when my screenshots are used.
That said though... you don't think we'd abandon you so easily, did you? We still care for you, and as such two independent projects have started for new servers.
Project One: Triax Minecraft
Run By: DanSyron - SG's architect, designer of spawn, designer of RoD, AoC, and AH.
Triax is an adventure mode server based around the raid system that sublimity had, but ramped up. Just be aware, as an adventure mode server, there is no building.

Project Two: TBA Minecraft
Run By: Adreos - Me, and I don't think I need any introduction to any of you.
TBA Minecraft is a successor of Sublimity. There was a lot on SG I liked, and there was stuff that could be improved. Greatly improved. As such TBA carries on SG's spirit and way of play.

Dan has told me he'll post updates to Triax in the shoutbox here.
For updates on TBA you can follow me on my Twitter account. Or you can add me on skype (Adreos0), or both.
There is currently no estimated date with either project, and I expect both to take time. Triax is made by Dan and is being run his way. TBA is made by me and being made my way. So time will tell how both pan out. Remember, unlike any update SG got, these are new server projects in their entirety, and thus have nothing of the past to rely on.
In the end its about you, the players. The SG community, the people in it, is what has kept me around for years. Its why I never thought to leave. And its why I find it hard to say goodbye to sublimity. All of you. It is why I don't accept this as the end. And its why I am moving forward with TBA Minecraft. So thank you for everything.
Until we met again, keep crafting.

OK, so long story short, we had a bad thing happen with funding. The credit card on file was no longer valid, and Hetzner, trying to bill a few hours ago, completely wiped our server and account with one billing failure. Really disappointed in the customer service there, but we'll see what we can do to get the data back.
In the meantime, the staff will be having a serious discussion about whether we can even continue at this point. I know that, no matter where we go, even back with Hetzner (which isn\\\'t likely anymore, at this point, as far as I'm concerned) we would need to pay another setup fee as well as the month of rent, so we have a lot of discussion to make. We will keep you guys posted, but for the moment, we will be leaving this board's registration and posting abilities disabled. We will use this as our main mode of communication with you guys. However, the shoutbox is available to guests temporarily, so you can chime in there if you want.
Edit from Adreos
The reason all your website accounts are not working is they were all lost too. I had an offline copy of the website so we were able to put that back up.
Also I DO have backups of the maps, I backed it up monthly, with the last being Nov. 6. So all is not completely lost if a solution can be found.
If the site goes down AGAIN I'll try keep you guys updated here on my twitter.
Edit from Malkierian
The site will NOT go down again, as this is on a separate host from the one we had before, tied to my own finances.
