  3. No... I can't remember what version in 1.8 (or 1.7??) but I believe there was a glitch where you could take advantage of the server ping and send multiple packets for the MOTD to the client which created the animation effect. This glitch was fixed however which explains why servers no longer had any animated MOTDs.

  4. Said 'glitch' was patched in MC-VER 1.8.8. It was found by Mojang a while ago but was left in because they thought it was cool, until they noticed that some servers were abusing it to make their server look too flashy and opening your sever list felt like opening a page with loads of adverts on it.
