Survey, Future Of The Server & Staffing

I've had a few people ask about staffing on the Tekkit Classic server as most of the existing staff now only play on the DiggyVerse modpack server so I thought it was time for an update.

Survey / Future Of The Server

Many of you will remember the survey a couple of months ago before the modpack was released, the results are here if you missed it or need a reminder:

The main question about the future of the Tekkit Classic survey didn't get anything close to a definitive answer, and was split between yes we should keep it beyond February, no we shouldn't, and undecided. At the time I promised a second survey nearer the time, that survey will be released within the next week or two. Tekkit Classic is not as popular as it used to be, Minecraft 1.2.5 is very outdated now, but the future of the server depends on you guys and gals and the decision will be made by mid-January.

We will only continue to host the Tekkit Classic server beyond February if a significant number of players want us to and sufficient funds are raised via donations, however big changes are coming to our Donation based ranks for 2015, especially the VIP rank, so watch this space.


Although we don't have staff online all the time like we used to most support tickets are still being handled fairly quickly and things like hack detection have been mostly automated. I agree that we really do need more staff if the server is to continue next year, however I'm holding off on promoting any more players to staff ranks until we know how likely that is.

If you want the Tekkit Classic server to continue beyond February then make sure you complete the survey when it's posted and consider donating, if you donate and the server doesn't continue beyond February because not enough funds are raised you will be compensated with free items etc on the modpack server.
