The server has been experiencing some issues lately which caused players to lose their ranks, factions and mcMMO. I was able to reload the most recent backup of mcMMO unfortunately factions and ranks (groupmanager) didn't save backups so I'll have to manually re-add players to their respective ranks. As for factions, there's nothing I can do. We're sorry for the inconvenience this may cause and I've implemented measures that would and at most, should store backups ever 24 hours of the server.
Bukkit has just release it's 1.7 version of craftbukkit compatible with the latest (current) version of minecraft. In an effort to update the server, the plugins we use. We currently use 25 plugins and none have been updated to use the 1.7 Bukkit API. I can run the updated version with the old plugins but that will cause issues with the server's performance and or data loss, as so I'll be constantly checking for updates for the plugins and update the server as soon as possible.
Most plugin authors update their plugins as soon as they see fit, so this is totally dependent upon them. I'm aiming to update the server within the span of a week. Sorry for the inconvenience but as this stands, it's beyond my control.
