Greetings guys, over the past few months I'd say Mineslam has had quite a few issues with randomly timing out clients. Luckily after quite a bit of time on the phone with our provider we've found the solution. We'll be shutting down the server from 4am to 6am (CST) on the 7th, or tomorrow. We'd like to apologize for how long this issue has already been lasting for, and we really appreciate how you've stuck through the issue. Thanks everyone!
EDIT: Maintenance went great, we've fixed up the issues I believe, and also the connection times seem a whole lot faster. I'm not for sure if this is just me or everyone, but it's quite amazing now.
