A new wiki has been started for everything SONA.
The main reason we have started this wiki is to help new players and teach them how to play the game.
The wiki is also suitable for all sorts of generic information about the community, like important events.
You can reach the wiki by going to https://wiki.sona-gaming.com
Those who contribute to the wiki in sufficient quantity, quality and accuracy will be rewarded properly. But contact Jeroen to get the rewards.

This is just a hint at the new version, not a random post.
Danver, Jeroen, L3O, Simm, Spank and I tested the new version ‘Hummingbird’ today. The script went good with the regular testing and bugs found. This was just the beginning to a new version. More scripting to be done tomorrow which means more testing tomorrow. In case you’re interested to test and help with beta testing, connect to the IRC and join #sona.dev. In case you don’t know what to do, ask Iota for help. We mostly test new versions from 1500 hours to 1830 hours GMT 0.00. Those who help us improve and test the server are rewarded handsomely. The details on the new version will come as soon as I find it stable enough. This means that it will take a while or even more, therefore, we would kindly ask you to be patient. If anyone bothers any of the above mentioned players about giving them info on the new features of the upcoming version, they will be punished severely.
I would also like to thank you all for being patient and believing in us. Thank you to anyone who has suggested anything. Each and every suggestion was taken into account and only the best were chosen. There also were some dumb ideas, but if dumb ideas wouldn’t exist, SA-MP wouldn’t have had been half as fun as it is today.
I would also like to thanks the admins who helped us test things.
We have just added some small new tweaks to the shop.
Come and take a look around!
The recent downtime was a result of a DDoS attack on the main server. We tried our best to solve it but couldn’t. We tried hosting a temporary server but all in vain. We, although, have found a way around for it, that is moving the server to another location which has helped get back the server online. This means the IP of the server has changed as well. The new IP has been posted on the forum but I’ll still mention it here: 188.8.131.52:7777. For those of you who might think that they might have lost their stats, nothing has changed except the IP (for you). You can play as regular in the server, you stats are still alive.
I also find it funny how people used to complain about the server going down but aren’t as interested in joining it now.
As far as the attacker is concerned, he has been reported to the related authorities and if found guilty, will be dealt with.
I would take this post to welcome all our members back and thank all the supporters who showed their constant support during our downtime on Facebook, Skype, Twitter etc. I also realised how important the Facebook page was and how it helped us inform our players about the downtime and keep them updated. Our Facebook page is: http://facebook.com/sonagaming
This code has expired and won’t work anymore. Those who have already PMed me about it are safe, those who haven’t should read carefully each and every post on the main page.
That’s all folks.
Just quick, the forum still moved to https://sona-gaming.com/forum/
This homepage is made to bring the newest information about the server.
This includes but is not limited to Server updates, development, events, requests and news.
The admins, moderators or regular players with some qualifying English interested in writing should contact me or Jeroen and at least have signed up for the blog. They’ll get their own separate categories which will be limited to them only.
Also, those of you interested in writing for me, which generally includes writing about upcoming features and explaining them and if possible expanding them. I’ll generally say about those features in #sona.dev channel on the IRC. If interested, contact me or Jeroen.
Let me remind you again: The forum has been moved to http://sona-gaming.com/forum/
