It's been a while since anyone has been added to the Whitelist. That's because the server is not actually 1.8.4 anymore, it's been 1.8.5 test versions. But don't worry you who have been waiting for possibly weeks - the Whitelist will be shut off once 1.8.5 is released (until/unless we run into serious trouble). 90% of my free time has been going into developing this to get it out ASAP. This also means we won't have that many new textures for metals - but everything I've spoke about plus some are all in and being bug tested. Expect it out within the next 48 hours.
