    We have quite a bit to announce, so much so that we'll need to sub-divide this into numerous other announcements!

    First, here's the general stuff:

    New map! MineCove is now running our largest map to date. A whooping 100k border! This map will be the new Survival.

    The old map will now be called 'Legacy'. Only players who logged into MineCove during the month of August will have access to Legacy. These players will be MineCove's Legacy players. You may access Legacy with /legacy.

    A run down on transfers and all that fun stuff:

    - Items transfer between Survival and Legacy
    - McMMO levels transfer between Survival and Legacy
    - Webshop packages will only go into effect on Survival, not Legacy
    - Private worlds may submit transfer requests on September 14th*
    - Towns may submit transfer requests on September 21st*
    - Builds will be open to transfer on January 1st*

    *Details on transfer procedures will be posted later on

    Legacy will stay open for another year until September 1st 2018, or until it is typically empty - Whichever occurs first.


    Now for the big ticket items!

    - Votes will only be counted on Survival, not Legacy

    Some things not covered:
    Seeing as black regions are no longer available to individuals- will the costs of those regions be refunded or will we be able to transfer pre-existing regions?
