It is finally that time, as you may have noticed we now have two new additions to the staff team, which has been overdue for a very long time.
- Renamed the "Concluded" giveaway prefix to "Finished".
- Rules specific to resources were added, they can be read here.
- People will no longer wrongfully receive the "Caution" tag from being warned.
I hope you have all settled back into school/work after your Christmas break and enjoyed the week long sale we had at the start of the month. I'd also like to thank everyone who purchased the January name color, especially Binaric for being the first to do so.
Due to everyones suggestions and bug reports I've been able to make a few changes around the website which include the following:
- Removed the "Fulfilled" prefix in the marketing sections as there was already a more frequently used "Closed" prefix.
- Removed the ability to use/make chat rooms due to them going un-used for a long period of time.
- Removed the PUBG gaming sub-section due to it never receiving a post/thread in its life-span.
- Deleted 4 of the previous user groups (OG, Princess, Ghoul, and Solitude) due to rule violations.
As can be seen in our previous section, four of the previous groups were deleted and because of this we are going to be auctioning four brand new groups for a firm period of a week. The starting bid for each is $50.
To bid for these groups you may send me a message and I will note your offers publically on this thread. On February 7th the group owners will be notified and if a payment is not made they will be re-auctioned for a few days.
Group 1 - SOLD
Group 2 - SOLD
Group 3 - SOLD
Group 4 - SOLD
These groups allow you to create your own user banners, which can be seen here (as demonstrated by Avery's PewDiePie group), however, the background must either be a...
I hope you all had a great Christmas and New Years, I'd like to once again thank you, over December we managed to reach 100,000 messages which is just mind-blowing. There weren't as many updates last month due to how busy I was with coursework and such, but there are a few things I'd like to talk about.
This is our second year partnering up with Craftathon and I'm very pleased to say that we helped raise $1,144 for Child's Play. It was incredible to be a part of and the experience was fantastic. If you have suggestions on what we should do for our next charity event don't hesitate to reply with suggestions.
Due to falling ill over Christmas and issues with coupons I wasn't able to get a sale up, to make up for that, over the first week of 2019 I will be having a 30% sale on user upgrades, and a 15% sale on sidebar ads, and sticky threads. This will begin sometime today and I will be sure to post in chat/tweet when it officially begins.
EDIT: Due to me manually having to edit prices for sales (should be a temporary issue) I won't be reducing all sticky thread packages by 15%, as of right now only the one reduced is the alts section as it is the most used, if you would like another section reduced please let me know and I can get that arranged for you.
This has been long overdue, Avery has worked very hard as a staff member the whole time he has been here, it's finally time to give him what he deserves.
- Avery has been promoted to Admin
As many of you may remember the top chatter of every month previously received a rank upgrade, but due to the chat soon after slowing down it made it too easy and was removed. I will be bringing back a new chat reward, if you...
Craftathon is a weekend-long charity event taking place on December 22-23! There will be famous members of the Minecraft community attending, like JeromeASF! The purpose of the event is for famous YouTubers to play online in real-time with their fans.
A minimum fee of $5 is required to join the server for the weekend, and it unlocks fun minigames and an SMP.
All funds go directly to Child's Play Charity, improving the lives of children in domestic violence shelters and hospitals. Throughout the weekend, there will also be panels from YouTubers and other members of the Minecraft community. You can purchase a ticket now at https://craftathon.org or join the Craftathon Discord at https://discord.gg/craftathon
I will be carrying on the tradition of updating all of you at the start of every month. I will start this off with a reminder, that we have a 25% sale on until the 3rd of December. This only applies on user upgrades but I do intend on having a sale over Christmas which will include ads.
- Blaze has been promoted to Moderator.
- 1.3.3 You may not share discord servers which have a pay per invite scheme.
Due to issues with Google Adsense, I will no longer be using them. To make up for this loss I have added one more sidebar slot. If it looks too much like spam, or people are simply against it, please let me know and I will look for another way around this.
Thanks to Avery we have now re-worded all of the pre-set warnings. They have all been made simpler to understand and have consistent points, as well as expiration dates. Previously it was down to the staff members to decide on the number of points to give in some cases, as not every offence was defined, which will no longer be a problem.
As always, be sure to leave your suggestions here. They are what makes this website better.

Official The Future of MCTrades!
Some of you might remember me from my previous positions here, both as a moderator and dispute resolver. I am proud to announce that I will be taking over as the owner of MCTrades and will be working very hard to bring it back to its prime. Soon after buildblox’s announcement regarding the site’s current condition, I decided to step in and provide whatever I could offer. Hopefully, in due time we can boost the site’s activity and grow as a community.
I have been a part of MCTrades since the beginning and intend on being a part of it until the end. buildblox will be around over the following months to ensure a smooth transition, though do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
I am very satisfied with Avery’s work and what he has done for this community over the past few months, for that reason he will be kept on as a moderator. Although he can no longer be the only moderator, and I will be actively looking for staff to grow the current team.
Based on numerous suggestions and complaints regarding the demand for bitcoin as an accepted payment method for ad slots, user upgrades, name colors, etc, I will begin manually accepting it. This may already be integrated with ad slots but until I can verify its functionality and deploy automation throughout the website they will need to be hand-processed; until then I will accept this type of payments through private messages. For the time being, we will also continue accepting PayPal until a new solution is found.
The future of MCTrades is very much reliant on you, the community. I take heavy consideration of suggestions and am eager to hear what each of you would like to see added, changed, or removed from this website. I will neither be able to spot every mistake nor fix everything immediately, but it will be a...
