Minecraft.net's Classic server list is gone!
Recently, Mojang has deleted the server list for Classic from their website. What this means for us is that we are now the only major server list/authentication service for the Classic protocol.
We're sad to see it go - there were still a couple of servers somehow living on there - but it was also hopelessly broken, with over 8000 servers that didn't work showing up.
Going forward, we will be switching to a new client that performs far better, and works on a much wider range of hardware. You can test ClassicalSharp by clicking here, but keep in mind that it is still very much a work in progress. Bugs for ClassicalSharp should be reported on UnknownShadow's github repository.
Have fun, everybody!

You can now upload HD player skins!
I've added the ability for you to upload skins up to 512x256 via the settings page. There is a small bug in our client that causes the head layer not to work in larger skins - we have no plans to fix this as we will be moving to a new client soon.
We hope you enjoy this new capability

New design rolling out
I've started rolling out a new design that will take some time to effect the entire site.
This will enable me to redesign some poorly-thought-out parts of the site easily.
If you have any suggestions or complaints, please direct them to this forum. Thanks!

Forums are now publically-viewable.
After much head-scratching and whatnot, I've made the forums completely visible to guests who don't have accounts. This means you can send links to people and they won't have to log in! Amazing!

Downtime due to hard drive failure
Hey guys! Just calling in to let you all know why we were down for 24 hours on August 1st.
Our server's host machine had a critical hard drive failure, causing all the data on the node to be lost!
Luckily, I keep backups every so often. In fact, one from that morning was sitting on my computer! I just had to wait until our host's employees recreated our server on a new host machine.
I would like to apologize to everybody for any amount of inconvenience this caused. I'm just glad that I had my backups.
Moral of the story: Back things up, guys.
