I'm sure you've noticed this status our server has had over the last few months...
I can only apologise that we haven't done a very good job of communicating things but, at this time myself and the staff team have made the decision to close the Cherry Vanilla server indefinitely.
Over the last few years, my personal circumstances have changed in that I am unable to maintain Cherry Vanilla and we had planned to close sooner.
Fortunately, in June, ENGLuke took the mantle and allowed Cherry to stay open for a while longer, which we are very grateful for.
However, due to the long-term lack of activity on the server and partially because other members of the staff team are going through busy or difficult times in real life we have made the decision to close the server.
I'm sure you understand that this is a very hard decision for us to make and we will all miss Cherry Vanilla and the amazing community that we created.
Ultimately, we feel that all good things must come to an end and we were running on borrowed time in the summer due to the lack of attention Cherry had been given.
I am going to keep the forums running for the foreseeable future and if there is ever a resurgence in Minecraft I will be there to see if we can provide a new server for future players.
Thank you so much everyone for the wonderful times we’ve all had on this server – Cherry has changed my life, and the lives of many other staff and players, for the better.
I will copy this into a forum thread for members to post below and discuss.
Thank you all again,
The Cherry Vanilla Staff Team
