Guy, Guys! we all are having the same error message. The server is obviously down and will probobly be fixed in no time atleast by tomorrow morning. So if you really want that fun minecraft experience go to this minecraft hunger games server -REMOVED- as the ip. This server is fun, and untill this server is up and running it will be your best chance for a good time
As an old time member, I suggest you remove that IP before you are banned for advertising other servers.
And yes... pretty sure you'll get banned for that, even on the forums.
The server is down and will prolly be up in a few hours when the Admins wake up.
