Greetings Everyone,

Today there are few topics that I would like to cover in this short but detailed post. The first of which will be the Community Meeting that will actually be occuring this time as I have my computer fixed and someone to Co-Host with me. The second one being another Q & A, after the high amount of interest in the last time we figured we would do another one to give the community some more input as to what our future plans are. The third one being the more exciting one which will a giveaway of 1 x Month of Pro, to enter simply follow the instructions on this tweet and retweet it for a chance to win! And finally just some overall small modifications to the server in-general.

Community Meeting:

1. You are to respect the opinions of others and not bash them if they say something you don't agree with.
2. You are to not scream, play music or mic spam during the meeting.
3. You are to respect when others are speaking and not talk over them if they have something to add.
4. You are to respect and follow the rules instructed by staff or the meetings host.
5. You are not required to have a mic however it would be preferred and easier to give your opinion.

Failure to comply with any of these conditions and you will be removed from the meeting.

Date and Time

This meeting will be taking place the 29th of July, at 3pm EST // 8pm BST // 2pm CST // 12pm PST.

How to Enter
If you would like to enter simply leave your IGN and your Discord tag below, if accepted you will be contacted on discord or the forums with more information.

Entries will be stopped this Friday the 28th, after that myself and @MishtaVishta will go through and select who will be attending this meeting and get in-contact with you that will have further information.

Q & A
Since I don't want this thread to be filled with two different entries I will link the thread to the Q & A thread where members are free to ask any questions they wish, however there are some conditions:
1. Limit to 5 questions per person. We'd like to answer more people than just spend all our time answering 20 of your questions.
2. Budget, advertising, Anticheat. These are topics we will not discuss so don't bother asking questions about them we already have plans that will come out in a post in the near future.
3. We will not be answering questions that have previously been answered in the previous Q & A located here, as well as we probably won't answer every single question possible as we do have some limits but we'll still answer as many as we can.

We will be doing more giveaways soon but to get an idea of how we'll...

Today I am happy to announce the upcoming Skyblock update! This has been a side project which I have been running over the past week or so and I am pleased to announce that it shall officially be live from 8pm GMT, Saturday 22nd July! Saying that at 7pm GMT the Skyblock gamemode will go down for 1 hour while we work on implementing these changes, this allows us some leeway in case something were to go wrong and allows us to do any last minute changes. We hope you understand.

Whats New?
There has been a fair amount of miscellaneous, small issues which have been resolved for this update, most of which are irrelevant and I won't bother giving a particular mention here. With that said, the following are the main, noticeable changes:

  • Night Vision
    • This perk will be accessible for any donator rank, bought off the store, this gives you permissions to use the /nv command which will give you the permanent Night Vision effect.
  • Vote Party
    • The Vote Party now has new, updated rewards!
  • Auction House
    • I have updated the plugin and personalised the configuration file, this means that any auction listings up at the time of the update will be cleared, please be alert of this.
  • Plots
    • Though this may not directly affect you, a new plot world has been added for Build Competition use ONLY. This enables me and @MishtaVishta to host build events on Skyblock without the need for you to compromise parts of your island!
  • Sell Chest
    • Yes! It is here, at long last. Sell Chest is now a feature available to everyone, to create a sell chest simply place a sign on your desired chest with [SellChest] on the top line, whenever this sign is clicked, it will sell the available contents. Currently, every member (regardless of rank) has the ability to create a maximum of 10 sell chests, though as you rank up through the in-game ranks, your limit will increase! As follows:
      • Member: 10
      • Member+: 20
      • [COLOR=rgb(255,...

Hey everyone,

After spending the last week deep in thought and considering some real life options, it is with great sadness that I announce to you that as of today, I will be stepping down as owner of The Minecart. Firstly, I want to stress that this has absolutely nothing to do with the server itself or any factors surrounding the server. The fact is, I have recently been presented with a real life opportunity, such is its potential that I would be an absolute idiot to pass it up for the sake of maintaining my activity level on a game. Such opportunities don't come round all that often and so I've decided to take it. I'll be moving to a new place and I'll be taking all my possessions with me, but I think this would be the ideal time - as I approach the age of 21 - to leave Minecraft behind, enter this new phase of my life and make the most of the opportunity I've been presented with.

With that said, please do not think the server is in any kind of disarray or that things are going downhill. Quite the opposite in fact, I know all about the big plans that are coming up in the near future and I'm genuinely disappointed I can't be part of it. Furthermore, it's important to note that Lac will still remain owner and the team will mostly remain the way it is, nothing will be changing in that regard. Lac still has a very capable backend team behind him so I'm sure my absence won't affect things too much. I apologise that this has come out of the blue and hope I haven't let anyone down, but this decision is based on my future and what it could look life if I took this chance. If I passed it up I'd probably regret it, so I need to take it and see what might come of it.

I want to give a huge thank you to all the members and staff - past and present - who have made my time here extremely enjoyable and thank you all especially for the dedication and hard work you have put in throughout my time as owner - everything you have done has been greatly appreciated and I will miss you greatly. I also want to say thank you to @Deprive, without whom my job here would have been extremely difficult. It has been quite the journey mate; from you getting me [falsely] demoted, to us becoming co-owners. You have genuinely been my best friend here and someone I have grown to respect immensely - it's been a pleasure getting to know you. I know you will continue to keep up the good work and do right by the server - as we have always striven to do since we took over. The Minecart (and formerly Mineslam) has been a big part of my life since I joined in 2014. It has been a great few years, from starting out as a humble Skyblock player, to getting Helper and working my way up the ranks here - I've loved every minute. I have met some great people and hold some great memories.

Thank you everyone. I leave here happy in everything I have achieved, with no regrets and with malice to none. I wish you all well in everything that you do, and I wish...
