The position of YouTube Content Producer has been abolished as a solitary position. All members of Nosiphus are now YouTube Content Producers. In order to be a member of Nosiphus after August 20, 2017, you must appear in Nosiphus videos.

Recent as of Sunday, August 20, 2017 - Sean has returned, and he will be downsizing the company.

Recent as of Friday, August 11, 2017 - Due to personal reasons, Sean will be taking some time off to rethink things. Wyatt, Maguire, and Jake are joint-Acting CEO for the time being.

Recent as of Monday, August 7, 2017 - We have written out The Content Production Plan to redress some of the worst problems we have. We have also introduced a Video Production Code.

Recent as of Monday, July 31, 2017 - Well, it had a good run. As July comes to an end, we must reflect back on the past two months and see what we've done, and we did a lot. We created a new modpack, updated the archives to be more accurate than ever before, increased our size, added demographic listings, reintroduced support for legacy functions, redesigned the logos, and most importantly, we've joined more Nosiphus members to the server than have ever been able to join.

Recent as of Monday, July 24, 2017 - In 2015, we utilized a service called plug.dj as a sort of radio station. When plug.dj shut down, we ended our usage of it. Now, the service is back, and we will be restoring our operations of it.

Recent as of Friday, June 30, 2017 - Three years ago today, Sean and Wyatt recorded NosLabs: A Carpenter's Dream, the first and so-far only mod review we've done.

Recent as of Wednesday, June 28, 2017 - As the 2013 Nostalgia Wave continues, so does progress. We've decided to keep the server in its creative mode state, and the current world will continue to exist as normal. The current world save has been in use since October 9, 2016. The only world that was used for a longer period of time was the second mansion world that contained the tenth NosLabs, in use from April 2014 to May 2015.

Recent as of Saturday, June 24, 2017 - Four years ago today, a new chapter opened in Nosiphus history when the very first Nosiphus Minecraft server loaded up at 11:30 PM. Today, we will be doing a similar thing. The Telkit server will be reset, and the world items from the Tekkit Classic server that is home to Castaways will be transferred over.

Multiple running series was always the idea for the server was always the idea for the server, and so, there will be a merger. Telkit with Sean will merge with Castaways, and once the series is on the main server, then more people will be available to play. There will also be changes to the NosLabs Custom Blocks mod to introduce crafting recipes.

The seed we use, however, will not change. That seed has been Sean's favorite since it randomly loaded back in February 2013.

The 2013 Nostalgia Wave is in full effect. Sean will continue his pursuit of restoring the 1.6.4 world generator to 1.7.10.

Recent as of Monday, June 19, 2017 - Today, I have integrated the Nosiphus Technic modpacks with the Discord server. I plan to tinker with the Telkit server to bring about tighter integration with the Discord server, and, if successful, will finally complete step one of The Openness Plan, which merges the entire Nosiphus Union onto one platform. - Sean Crain

Update: Interoperability achieved! The Nosiphus Discord server and the Nosiphus Telkit server are now linked. The Openness Plan, step one, has been successful.

Recent as of Monday, June 19, 2017 - Today, Sean has been reorganizing the Nosiphus gaming section. All of our Minecraft modpacks now have direct links. The downloads and mods have been merged with specific sections.

Recent as of Thursday, June 8, 2017 - The era of the Big N is over. The new Nosiphus. A more familiar approach.

In addition to the new logo style being rolled out, two videos have been released in the past two days, Random Bits 2017 and Microsoft Sam Reads Stupid and Weird Signs 2. Check them out.

Recent as of Tuesday, June 6, 2017 - Random Bits 2017 will be released ahead of schedule. It will be out today instead of June 14. This leaves more time to focus on remastering the three original videos.

Due to 1.10.2 being updated at an incredibly slow speed, we will continuing on Minecraft 1.7.10 for the forseeable future. The Telkit 5.0.0 plan to be tied to Minecraft 1.10 is being scrapped.

Recent as of Thursday, June 1, 2017 - Welcome to the best month of the year.

There are some ongoing internal date corrections. It seems we have misplaced certain events in the calendar.

Happy birthday, Notch! Without Markus Persson, Minecraft would not exist, and that is a very sad world. Minecraft is one of the most successful games of all time because of what it is, a creative sandbox game, and, without you, so many lives wouldn't have been able to use the game to express their creativity. Thank you, Notch.

Random Bits 2017 is currently in the works, and a new date will be assigned for annual Random Bits release dates: June 14. Random Bits 2016 was released on June 13, 2016, but since June 14 is an important date in Nosiphus history, the release date for annual Random Bits will be pushed back one day.

We have several important dates this month, most notably being June 24. June 24, 2017 is the fourth anniversary of the original Minecraft server launching, which happened around 11:30 PM on Monday, June 24, 2013.

Hinkley's Manor is also in the process of receiving a top-to-bottom rewrite. A Nosiphus affiliate who Sean considers a close friend was asked what they thought of certain plot elements, and Sean will continue to consult with them and will continue to consult with her and others as the story is rewritten.

The Nosiphus website has undergone a redesign over the past few weeks. The site theme has become darker so that it is easier to read, the member pages have been redesigned, and The Openness Plan is currently in progress to make Nosiphus bigger than ever.

We also plan to finally attempt to restore the 2013 Nosiphus videos to as high quality as we can.

Recent as of Monday, April 17, 2017 - The scan has been finalized. Many files were found, but are for the most part too corrupted for usage. What is good, however, is the recovery of a world with a time-stamp of July 11, 2013. While it is corrupted and does not function properly, Sean believes this to be the ORIGINAL Nosiphus server world from 2013.

Recent as of Sunday, April 16, 2017 - Currently, Sean is running a data recovery scan on his old laptops. Any undamaged files that are recovered will be edited and uploaded.

The YouTube Renaissance continues within Nosiphus, as Sean wants to see a return of Conspiracies with Nate sometime this year. In addition to this, the Nosiphus Archives are going to grow as Sean attempts to recover more and more stuff.

Recent as of Tuesday, March 28, 2017 - These last few days have been very productive video-wise. Sean has considered March 2017 to be a YouTube Renaissance for Nosiphus. From Sean's MBC Mushroom News and early Windows XP-based projects being restored, to legacy Minecraft topics, in addition to hours of unedited footage of a Tekkit Classic series, the channel's activity is beginning to pick up again.

Recent as of Monday, March 13, 2017 - Sean has redesigned the Nosiphus website. We have changed the font from Righteous to Quicksand, and we have lightened the look of the site.

Recent as of Saturday, March 11, 2017 - Sean has written his life's story out into a document, from birth until today. Read it here.

Recent as of Tuesday, March 7, 2017 - The NosLabs Custom Blocks mod is currently in the process of being updated to Minecraft 1.10.2, as more mods of Telkit are becoming 1.10.2-compatible. Sean doesn't have an ETA, as the block models are causing trouble, but when he fixes that, then the mod can probably be released rather soon.

Recent as of Tuesday, February 28, 2017 - Two years ago today, Nosiphus Nightly News began its production. While the television era of Nosiphus has come to an end, Sean has found a renewed interest in Doctor Who, and is making plans to take over the Minecraft series from Maguire Rodgers.

He is the first active member of Nosiphus to achieve this, as such, we may or may not do something over our three day weekend. * = note that documents were found later that actually said Wyatt's join date was January 8, not January 13.

Recent as of Saturday, January 7, 2017 - The horror script known as Hinkley's Manor has progressed quite far, however, it is not completely finished yet. The set designs are in progress as well, but they are nowhere near finished. As a result, we will be allowing access to script details, but, we will not be opening up the script itself for public access until after the entire motion picture has been finished and uploaded to YouTube.

Recent as of Sunday, January 1, 2017 - Happy New Year!
