    Hey everyone! Some new stuff happening behind-the-scenes:
    1. skettlebus24 is doing a great job as marketing manager! We are so delighted to have him working on our team.
    2. The gem system is now being actively worked on and gems will soon be available for purchase in our shop. The parkour courses now award gems for completion! So make sure to re-visit checkpoint 10 and claim them!
    3. We have been hard at work at developing 1.9-compliant versions of all our code. Luckily, this update doesn't change many lines of code on Mojang's side... just adds new ones! Around 70-80% of our code works as-is, and the other 20% require only minimal rewriting. That means we will have full 1.9 support in the next few weeks. Until then, we may be un-whitelisteing our special 1.9-only demo server for you to all mess around with 1.9's "cool" new "features".
    4. Clash is coming along nicely! Not much else to talk about there until we get closer to our release date :)
    5. We are working with Joshchicken to get a new PvP server out. Josh is an expert at PvP and managing servers. He will be responsible for the entire server, and we will post more information when that server's release date approaches. He also happens to have a really cool name ;)
    That's all for today! Hopefully this information was helpful!

    "cool" new "features" hahaha

    Sounds good Josh! I was thinking maybe a few months for 1.9 but this is good news!

    Skettle is doing a great job too, really enjoying working with him on some stuff and should be great for Cobalt, especially when clash comes out!

    I can't wait for 1.9 on Cobalt! (By the time this is posted Cobalt is maybe already upgraded to 1.9)

    I thought when JoshChicken logged on he was actually you exept a different account. So is he like the co-owner/other owner of the server?

    I think that has something to do with his account, if he is using GitHub Desktop.

    Doolittle2008 - If you are using GitHub Desktop, go to Settings > Advanced and enter your GitHub email in the Git Config boxes. This should fix your commits from not showing up.

    Are you saying that Doolittle needs to Git good?

    Promotions, and ads.

    If you're talking about ads on more popular websites, such as Youtube and Facebook, I believe we are going to refrain from paying for ads on those websites.
    Promotion could be done as simply as making a video about Cobalt! Youtube is a good way for people to find servers, so the more videos out there on Cobalt the better.

    True, but AdSense is free or not?

    I'm actually not sure on AdSense. I also don't know if Josh would want to get into that or not for advertisement, but hey, it's something to consider.

    AdSense would be for adding advertising to the website itself. I don't think that's a good idea. For the annoyance that it could cause, it's not worth the little by of money it could actually raise.
