With the increase in players, comes the need for some server database maintenance. Starting October 1, 2016 tents and stashes are considered abandoned if they have not been updated (touched) in over 60 days, same as the old server.

I will get 1.8.8 implemented as soon as possible after release, but it could take me a couple of days. Watch this space.
