It's going to be months before a server version of 1.8 is out. Probably two to three. It's the largest minecraft update in history. The servers will remain 1.7 and playable for you, and that's fine with me because it's out of my hands.
What is not fine with me is people logging into the server and bugging me, telling me that they'd "play more if the server upgraded." Not only are you inherently ignorant, but you're annoying. Titans and every other donor contribute to this network so you can play minecraft on a shared environment for free, regardless of how stupid you are. I haven't played minecraft in six plus months yet these servers stay up. If you don't own a rank and you annoy me, I'll just ban you. Be warned.
