Apologies for all the server downtime, I'm physically removed from my server so I don't know what's wrong with it. I'm going to move it to a server that should be more reliable. I'll start a new thread once the move is complete so the correct link will be at the top.
Regarding the large size: I apologize if the ridiculous ocean expansion made minecraft less fun. I debated expanding for that reason, but in the end I think the additions like the SSS Vault made the expansion worth it. And at this point it's hard for me to do something about it (like adding more ground in a level editor) without messing up somebody's stuff.
However, the new server will run OpenCraft, which has the ability to switch between multiple worlds, so we could create a new, smaller world for VIPPERS who don't like the large, crowded one. I'm not sure if VIPPERS are still interested in Minecraft at all, but please post opinions or ideas for the future of the VIP Minecraft Server if you have any.
