Look around the forums and back up anything that you don't want to lose. This forum will be closing down and we will be transitioning all community gathering to the Discord server.
Here is a link to the Discord server. If you are opposed to using discord... I'm sorry to hear that. It is a great client that allows a lot of voice and text chat channels per server AND you can check other servers without having to log off and on. It's good. You should use it.
As for N@W... it might not be dead but I'm 98% any Minecraft version won't be coming out. Who knows. A lot of us are hanging out on Discord and playing other games. Feel free to join us or add the server to check in every now and again.
