Actually some would guess the update from 1.7.2 to 1.7.3 wouldn’t bring such a difference. That’s not true. With 1.7.3 the bukkit team removed a huge bug, which caused the server to occupy more and more RAM. With the update we won’t need restarts every 6 hours anymore. I will do those restarts now once a day at about 3 o clock in the morning.
Every medal has 2 sides. The update to 1.7.3 is causing a bug which randomly deletes contents of signs, furnaces and chests. This bug should be really rare but still it’s there. So if signs or chests are empty we can’t do a roll back. It’s a bug and we have to wait for another update. I am sorry but I currently can’t do anything about it. I still hope that your minecraft experience will be bugfree and smooth.

Have fun guys! You will hear from me, soon!
