Kay, Mojang has made no statement a minecraft server is required to preserve your /chest. Technically, the server admins can do whatever they want. Mojang takes no stance on this. Good luck with your report.
They are, to a certain extend. We do not recommend using 1.8 since there are some compatibility issues. E.g. enchanting, it is not possible to enchant on the server using a 1.8 client. Other than that it doesn't run well, expect poor performance.
Tori, there won't be on the server until they are able to update it. If you want to do bunnies in single player worlds, you do same thing i said, but in "use version" change it to "latest version" instead of "1.7.10" but only "1.7.10" will work on
wait so if i do what u said there won't be bunnys anymore?
The server is running the full 1.8 update. Some plugins are broken for the time being but should be back soon. Some signs are broken because the way the server saves and formats them has changed in 1.8. Lock signs are broken and need to be replaced asap. Gate and Bridge signs need to be replaced as well. I tried a utility to automatically convert the signs, but that caused a lot more problems. Please, do not loot chests with broken locks.
There are rumors that the devs for spigot are going to release a full 1.8 version soon. I've been checking for an update everyday, but nothing has happened yet. Crossing my fingers that it'll happen soon rather than later.
