Building a Community: 12 Years of Fun and Adventure

As the owner of our now twelve-year-old Minecraft community, I have to say, I am beyond thrilled to still be going strong all these years later. When I first played on this server (started by Mikey) in early 2011, I never could have imagined the journey we would go on together. That summer season I took over, and here we are now, and I couldn’t be more grateful for the dedicated group of friends who have been with us through it all.

A full history of our server through different generations can be found in this thread:

One of the things that bring me the most happiness is the sense of camaraderie and friendship that has grown within our community over the years. We’ve laughed together, we’ve cried together, we’ve built amazing things together, and we’ve shared countless memories through daily gameplay, server events, and new Mojang releases of the game. And through it all, we’ve remained a great group of friends who truly care about one another.

I’m also so grateful for the opportunity to be a part of something that brings so much joy and happiness to so many people. Running a Minecraft server can be a lot of work, but the rewards are truly priceless. Seeing the smiles on our players’ faces as they explore new worlds, conquer challenges, and build amazing things together is one of the greatest joys of my life.

One of the things that make our community so special is that we are family-friendly and maintain a toxicity-free environment. We believe that everyone should be able to enjoy the game, and that means creating a welcoming space for all players to just enjoy the game.

We offer a variety of game types to cater to all players, including survival worlds, oneblock, and skyblock. And we never reset our worlds, allowing players to build and explore to their hearts’ content. Take a winter break or sometimes even a few years, and to come back finding their builds to still be there. Some return just to rediscover the game as there have been many changes over the years.

As we look to the future, I am so excited to continue running the server and to be a part of this community. I know that there could be challenges along the way, but I also know that with the support of our friends, team members, and the dedication of our community, we will have more years of friendship, fun, and adventure to come. I am excited to see what the future holds.

Let’s just say we just keep mining and building, one block at a time, on
