Hey everyone!

I have a very sad post this time. I have thought long and hard about this, and I am deeply saddened to post this, but unfortunately, the server, The Kingdom of Flowerdale will be closing in 2 weeks’ time, Sept 28, 2018.

As many of you know, I have not been able to be very active for the past bit. As a server owner, that is very unfair of me, and it’s been very unfair to the Flowerdale staff. Flowerdale staff have all been amazing at keeping things going and creating a fun community here for you all! All the staff have been wonderful, including our past staff. I want to thank each one of you.... especially @Sensei who deserves an extra thanks for all his challenging work with plugins and behind the scenes, as well as creating some fun events for everyone!

This is a fabulous community. I have made some great friends here that I hope will be longtime friends and I hope we keep in touch. Flowerdale could not have made it as far as it has without the support and help from everyone that has played and contributed to our server over the course of its time. I want to say a heartfelt thank you to everyone, and I wish everyone nothing but the best. <3  

I always said I would never leave, and that we would never close. Unfortunately, real life has other ideas for me. I am so sorry this is happening.

My last semester in University was the hardest, most stressful semester I have had in the past 2 years. As I am entering third and fourth year, it’s only going to increase, and I must remain working full time and complete my studies part-time. I have been struggling and had to come to the realization that I no longer have the time to dedicate to running a Minecraft community and server. I must focus on my studies to better my career. I also no longer have the funds. With rent increases, school fee increases and other costs of living constantly going up, I am not making ends meet anymore. Asking for donations is not fair – that is a temporary fix and would just be a re-occurring cycle every month. I still believe that people should not have to pay to play and it’s not enjoyable to be on a server when every month you wonder if the funds will be made to keep it open. I do appreciate all the help we have received since we opened.

So, where do we go from here?

Sensei will be putting up download links in discord to the Survival and Vanilla worlds for anyone that would like to have them. Our discord community can remain for as long as you want it to if you find another server that you like to play on that you want to share with your friends or the rest of the community please do share away. It would be great to still see the community here be able to play together somewhere if possible.

Thanks again everyone, you have all given me some fabulous memories! <3
