In case you didn't see the Discord announcement:


We're happy to announce that MCTrades is partnering with Craftathon, a weekend-long charity event supporting Child's Play Charity (http://childsplaycharity.org/) where popular members of the Minecraft community can play online in real-time with their fans.

Craftathon contains fun minigames, an SMP, and interesting and informative panels.

Craftathon will take place on July 29-30.

It costs a minimum of $5 to get a regular ticket, or alternatively $20 for a V.I.P. ticket which comes with more perks; 100% of the proceeds will go towards improving the lives of children in hospitals and domestic violence shelters.

Many of the MCTrades staff team will be present at the event in-game and on the Craftathon Discord (https://discord.gg/3JRDCZ3), so please join us for a weekend full of fun! Get your ticket for Craftathon today!

Forum Maintenance:

It has recently come to our attention that certain name colors are no longer working. Additionally, there have been various reported bugs regarding site-wide speed and website usage. In order to resolve most of these issues, we have set a maintenance date:

This Wednesday (June 12, 2017), at 4-7PM PDT (7-10PM EST).

Before and after Wednesday, you may experience some interruptions in various services. If for whatever reason the maintenance fails to resolve our issues, then we will reschedule to another date.

Thank, everyone!

See you around,

Also, some updates:
  • We recently emailed the majority of the MCSell userbase stating that all ranks would be transferred. Due to the large volume of requests to transfer ranks, as of June 25, we will no longer transfer any ranks. We apologize for the inconvenience.
  • Minecraft accounts have been divided into two sections:
    • Minecraft Alts/FAs
      • This consists of, understandably, Minecraft Alts and FAs. I chose to separate it into a different forum in order to make things clear as to where to post.

      • Same section as before, except we now have a Semi-OG section! If there are any posts you or someone has made that belong in this section, be sure to report it to be moved!

      • Received at least 10 likes.
      • Received no more than 10 warning points.
      • User isn’t a staff member.
      • You will automatically be upgraded once the daily cron runs. Give it about a day to update or so.
    • We’re hoping this will help user activity bloom. While the rank doesn’t have any special features yet, we’re planning on including access to exclusive forums and giveaways!
  • Affiliate marketing! As most of you have noticed, we have a referral system in place. If you’re interested in advertising MCTrades and making a quick...
Hey there, everyone!

It's been a while since I wrote up an announcement. In spite of recent events, a lot of things have changed here on MCTrades. As such, you may come across some cool features while browsing!

New theme: Say hello to the brand new MCTrades theme! Powered by Google's Material CSS, the new theme incorporates metro-style buttons and sleek design settings! We can now truly call ourselves the Modern Minecraft Marketplace.
  • Due to some compatibility features, our covers addon has been changed. If you had previously uploaded a cover, feel free to reupload it.
  • The ADStyler has been temporarily disabled due to bugs. It may or may not return.
  • Diamond users can switch to the Material Dark theme.
Because this is a brand new theme, bugs are expected. If you encounter any bugs, please submit a bug report by making a thread in the suggestions section and selecting "Bug Report" as the thread prefix.

Reputation/User Ratings: After being widely requested, we now have a reputation addon! If you would like to add a rating to a user, just navigate to https://mctrades.org/members/<user>/add-rating (it can be found on a user's member card or on the right-hand corner of their profile).

Staff changes: Our staff team has had some changes!
  • BadNode is now a moderator! Most of you recognize him as an administrator from a now-closed marketplace. Let's give him a warm welcome!
  • Eagle has been demoted due to inactivity. I'd like to thank him for his time here on MCTrades.
Giveaway: We're opening up a giveaway!
  • 2 Diamond ranks/Emerald for those who already have Diamond
  • 2 Name colors of winning user's choice.

Hello MCTrades,

I don't often post much when it comes to community thanking and other major things, hence I thought I'd give it a shot this time. Over the past month, we have gained a pretty decent amount of content and members. We couldn't have got this far without you, and we thank those of you who continue to use our site daily, weekly, and monthly. Every view, post, and thread counts, overall making us a better community.

I would also like to thank those of you who decided to financially support the forum, all donations are much appreciate and are put towards making the forum better.

On the note of us expanding, there have been a few changes among the staff team that we feel the community needs to be informed on. The staff changes are below:
  • Raze was banned for scamming another user. Despite this setback, we would like to thank him for his time and effort keeping the shoutbox clean and spam-free.
  • TheEpicPotato has been promoted to Resource Moderator.

There have been no other major changes on the forum as of now., though we do plan on releasing new content and more dynamic updates in the near future.

Thanks again for everything,
Munchie <3
Giveaway information is located at the bottom of the thread.

Hello everyone! It certainly has been a while since we had an announcement, so I decided I would write one up considering we just hit 2000 messages :D!

I would like to thank everybody for remaining active on the site. Following my recent unban on a competitor, I worried about the future of MCTrades. I wondered whether or not I should continue running the site; however, in the end, I realized I was and always will be responsible for keeping and maintaining the forums. And because it is my responsibility, I will ensure the site does not die. Accordingly, we have had some staff changes:
  • It's been a while now, but petercraig and Owen have left the staff team for several reasons. I will be temporarily taking all dispute resolution duties into my own hands.
  • Because we currently lack active moderators, I am happy to announce that XenoNode has joined the staff team! I am sure that he will do an amazing job :)
Beyond that, we have some long-awaited updates!
  • We now have a banlist (phew!). Our previous list was only accessible to moderators, so I just decided to change the addon. The banned members list can be found under the "members" tab.
  • Users who have purchased upgrades/name colors can now switch through their colors without needing to contact staff members! You can access the switch under your account preferences.
And finally, we have a name color giveaway!
  • The first 3 users who like this message and comment below asking for a name color (anything except rainbow) will get a free permanent name color. After that, the next 17 users who like this message and comment get a free name color for a month.
Get your friends on MCTrades! New users can enter the username of a referrer on their registration page, and users who refer their friends...
Hello everyone!

I'd like to start off by saying thanks to everyone. I never imagined we would reach this point. 500 members—the number itself is staggering—is an amazing accomplishment for a site like MCTrades. And it never would have been possible without members like you guys.

For those of you who haven't heard: I was recently informed that we are the second MCTrades site to have existed. The original was founded by IPv4 in late 2015 and closed last February. I have merged all the original users to the new MCTrades.

I've been noticing a drop in activity. I'm not going to deny it: if we don't get a unique idea or concept implemented, the site will fail. Therefore, I will be paying very close attention to the Suggestions section for the foreseeable future.

I will be taking some time to write more wiki pages on how to effectively use the forum. I feel the wiki is underused, and I can't really blame anyone but myself considering we don't have much to read.

If you or someone you know has any Skype/server advertising services, please PM me. I am looking into paid advertising at this time, and I'm open to any options.

Sincerely,
BuildBlox
Hello everyone!

Prior to getting through the update list, I would like to thank all our members for getting MCTrades to 1000 messages! It was an amazing Christmas gift for me and my staff members :)

Now, some of our updates:
  • Name colors will be added within the next week. You won't be able to change between the colors you have purchased for now. Each color will cost $1, except for the...
  • Rainbow name color. Yup! After some testing with the staff, I have decided to allow the purchase of the rainbow name color. The color will be added along with all the other colors throughout the next week for either $3 or $5.
  • Merge with CraftBuzz. CraftBuzz was my old marketplace, which has now been rebranded as a Minecraft News site. I have merged the users to MCTrades. In the process of doing so, however, members who had signed up on CraftBuzz may have had their accounts overwritten in the process of the transfer. I have attempted to undo all the damage, but if you have any issues with your account/unauthorized name changes, please open a support ticket and I will immediately fix it.
  • Christmas is gone, and so is our Christmas theme and the snow. I would like your feedback about our Christmas theme, as it is my own creation.
  • Staff Changes. We have had some goodbyes. pablo67340 and Wishix have left the staff team to pursue other opportunities, and Fire has stepped down as a Resource Moderator. zDrakon is our new Chat Moderator.
To thank you all for getting us to this point. To show my appreciation, I will be doing a rank giveaway. In order to enter, just like this announcement and leave a comment below stating the giveaway you would like to enter and showing your appreciation for MCTrades:

  • 1x Diamond Rank for non-upgraded users or 1x Emerald Rank for Diamond users
  • 1x name color of your choice (except Rainbow) for all users...
