Hey guys!

We haven't been accepting/denying any games because our new API is on its way. Quicksteve cannot really develop any new games, because he is working on something bigger. This includes a whole new system for everything. Custom trails, custom pets, custom gadgets, custom games, our own banning system, our own permissions system... There is a lot of work, but don't you worry! We'll start going through all these game ideas after we get the new things working!

Thanks for understanding.

Hey guys! Wowzers!

There has been a lot going on with the server. A lot of small things have been added to the server and I really feel like not everyone knows about them. It's time for another small BuildCraftia update log, number 3 or something?

1. Penguin rank
Yes, that is proof of how much we love penguins. The rank costs $150, but offers you features with over $200 worth! Awesome, right? You can find more info in our server store at htpp://shop.bcsn.us or by using the in-game command /penguin to see the benefits!

2. Stair Chairs
What is this? Well, this is an awesome plugin, which allows you to sit on any stairs by just right-clicking them... I know what you're thinking; "Whaat?! Did you actually install that?" Yes, yes we did. Oh, by the way... Everyone can use it! Double the fun! Awesome for role playing, eh?

3. Party Chat
Speaking of role playing... Party Chat has been in the dark side for quite the time now... Nobody really got into fixing...

Hey guys,

It has come to my attention that around 8:30PM EST our long-time Moderator - ImNotARapper (bobby730) made graphic remarks about the staff, ownership team, and the server in general. We apologize if anyone was affected and took offense to anything he has said and we wanted to make sure that everyone knows that the appropriate punishments were put in place for him.

Currently, the spawn and one warp has been reported as damaged and we will work to fix these builds as fast as possible (edit by azza: fixed!) - lucky for us, we have backups incase something like this was to happen.

We do not know what caused/triggered his rage during this incident however we will be looking into it more as times goes on.

If your building was affected by his actions, please contact us immediately so we can fix it for you.

Again, we apologize if anyone was affected by this and have a nice night,
Zach

Hello there!

From today on, the server will be owned by me, AZZA. Because of this event, the server is going to change language from English to Finnish. Also, our current owners will be demoted to admin, as soon as possible. I have already started the preparation for this event on our Creative server, but since it's so much work I haven't done much, yet. I have changed some of the messages into Finnish already, but I will start working on the plugin messages from tomorrow on. It's going to be a lot of work, but I think it's going to be worth the pain!

Also, since I will be taking care of the server, from tomorrow on (2nd of April) no other languages than FINNISH will be allowed on the server. If you are speaking on another language you will receive a permanent ban or a mute. Anything from the Google Translate will be strictly forbidden and in case of using it, you are also going to get banned or muted.

I hope I can boost the Finnish Minecraft community with this, because it's...

It has been over a week since the staff applications were closed. We have all been extremely busy last week with school (Leo with real work not just school). I had three matriculation exams last week and... it's been really hectic. But, to the main point now! We have finally decided the people who will be accepted as helpers!

The chosen applicants will be promoted to Helpers and they will start their work immediately! Those four new helpers will go through a four week testing period. During this period, our staff members will observe the new helpers. After 4 weeks, all the remaining helpers will be tested to ensure they have got the inner parts of moderating and they will be either promoted to Moderators or demoted to the rank they were before.

Big, big thanks to everybody who made an application. We had absolutely bunch of them this time, which is awesome! There were some really bad applications and some really good applications. Of course we chose the best...

It's been quite some time since the last build competition. Maybe now would be the time to make one already?! Look no further, because here it is!

This time, the subject will be Slime Run. If you have no idea what Slime Run is, take a look at this thread.

So, make your epic Slime Run maps by yourself or in a group of people (limited to maximum of 3). Each one of you will receive the prize if your team wins the competition.

That brings us to the actual prizes and the prizes for this build competition are phenomenal! Not only your map gets added to Slime Run you'll get all this!

  • Block Trail pack (worth $10)
  • 3 regular trails of your choice
  • 1 pet of your choice
  • $5 coupon to the server store
And that's not even all...

Evening everyone

I just thought I would write this quick post to tell you about the new Name Changing feature within Minecraft!

Today, February 4th Mojang allowed Minecraft users to change their usernames. There are a few underlying worries about this that I would like to address:
  1. All banned users will remain banned - Minecraft works using a UUID (Universally Unique Identifier) system to organize it's players therefore when a player is banned they are banned using their UUID and not the username itself. If you don't understand that look at it this way the UUID is the account and the username is the username, the username can always be changed but the account cannot. Therefore don't worry about banning, its all under control!
  2. Donation ranks will remain - As said in the previous post our ranks work on a UUID system as well therefore your donations are linked to your UUID not the username itself so you will always have you rank!
