Hello y'all! I'm thinking about setting up a Minecraft (java) server for the forum which will run for one month only and then be closed. But the screenshots and memories you make will remain!

Please reply to this survey if you're interested:

PREFERRED MONTH:
A. June
B. July
C. Either

PREFERRED DIFFICULTY:
A. Peaceful for the first 2 weeks then Medium for the last 2 weeks
B. Medium with KeepInventory (you don't lose your items when you die) and mobGriefing off (Monsters don't destroy blocks)
C. HARD MODE
D. I don't care

SUBMIT CONTEST CATEGORY IDEAS:
When the server closes, we'll select winners for a few different mini contests, like "Most Gold/Diamonds Hoarded," "Best Statue of Dzuna/Best House," "First to Beat the Game" etc. so please submit ideas 😃 For the subjective ones, we'll have @Avidro judge because he doesn't play video games anymore, yet he was the one to host the server last time and is still a great Minecraft lover.

IF YOU DON'T OWN MINECRAFT:
I'm thinking about giving away a free copy to one person who wants to participate in the fun but doesn't own the game! If this is you, please confirm that you can run the game by playing the free trial version (of JAVA (or the bundle which includes Java) Minecraft or else you can't connect to our server), and then share some screenshots here of what you got up to in-game! Multiple people may apply, but only one will be chosen, unless a generous person steps forward to pledge an additional gifted copy 👀 The more the merrier, after all!

Any other feedback/suggestions welcome!

Tagging everyone who participated last time: @Jimothy @Syril Dawntreader @EstherTb @Val @TheJLT @Steady Eagle @Smiley100P @StickFreeks
And those who seemed interested for this time: @Doc Seibel @Oegyein @Rateus (?)

C, D, I'll check to see if I can play at the weekend, I love JLT's idea about the widest variety of dirt types collected. If I do join in I apologies for spending the entire month working out what I'm doing and not making any progress towards anything whatsoever.

Month: A, I'm moving out in July, plus work related stuff, meaning I'll have very little free time
Difficulty: B, that's how I'm used to play on a server with friends, pretty balanced and not too hard on new players
Contest ideas: least deaths, first to beat both bosses (Dragon & Wither)... will think about more

I own the wrong version of minecraft :westembarrassed:
Time to see if my finicky computer will run the java version

I think a randomly repeated "first to die" competition could be pretty funny
I'll add input to other stuff if my computer functions

Hmm... "Most OSHA Violations in One Base," "Biggest Music Disc Collection," "Most Secret Jack-o-Lantern."

If I've counted the votes correctly, we've settled on June with the "Medium w KeepInventory/no mobGriefing" difficulty preference.
