There's now a new way to link your Minecraft Account to the Forums! This will allow us to create more integrations between the server and the website in the near future. It is also a lot simpler and much more secure than the previous method. This will also sync your rank In-Game with your rank on the forums.

First of all, you will need to login to Shadowblockz and go to the Hub.
While in the hub, you will then need to execute the following command: '/linkaccount'
The following message will appear in the chat.

Click the text "Click here to link your account!".
You will then be directed to the Shadowblockz website, where your account will be automatically linked with your forums account.
Re-log on the Shadowblockz Minecraft Server, and your accounts should now be linked together!

The website will experience downtime tomorrow in order to move the entire Shadowblockz Website to a new hosting provider. We have already setup everything in advance so we hope to make this a quick switch. The website being down ensures that no data is lost during the transfer.

Downtime will occur during the following hours
10:00 - 12:00 (BST) on Saturday 8th July 2017
We hope to get better performance, better running costs and better reliability from this new hosting provider. Which is great, especially after the downtime we experienced with our current hosting provider a few days ago.

If anything changes or if there are any delays we will be posting them on Social Media and on the Shadowblockz Minecraft Server.

We look forward to seeing you all on the forums after the switch tomorrow!

UPDATE: The move was successful! All website services are now operational again.
Community Update Rules & Staff Updates
[​IMG]
Hello! Today marks the beginning of the "Community Update" posts. These posts are not related to new features or updates on the server, but are related to the Shadowblockz community itself. There is no schedule for these posts, however all community news will be published in this format. The topics for this post will be the recent changes to the Staff Team, and changes to the Server Rules.

Staff Update
Changes have been made to the Staff Team today, which includes both promotions and demotions. Starting with the demotions @Britland has sadly resigned from the Shadowblockz Staff Team, we wish him the best of luck with his future endeavours. We also have to say farewell to @NaoRiko due to inactivity, but we thank her for her contributions to the community.

On the topic of contributions, due to the amount of work @xSilencers has put into helping the community on Shadowblockz he has been promoted from Helper to Moderator! Be sure to congratulate him in this thread and in-game!

For those who weren't aware, you can view all staff members, their rank and their bio HERE.


Rules Update
Over the past few weeks @GummieBear047 and the rest of the team have been working on improving the server rules and the punishments for such rules. We hope the new rules will be welcomed peacefully by the community, and we hope they make the server a better place. The new rules can be viewed on the rules page HERE.

Hello People of SBN

So, it's been a little while since we last had a contest. So I thought, why not have another build contest? The general consensus was that people would prefer a building tournament, so here's my proposition:
Information On It
Date:
Saturday, July 8th, 4 PM EST. (10 PM CET, 9 PM BST, 1 PM PST)

The contest will go as follows:
You will be given a 75x75 area to build in on the day of the contest and you will have to create something based on a theme that will be given on that day. You will have two hours to build the given theme, and then the builds will be evaluated by the judges. The time designated will be when building begins, please arrive earlier than that and please be cooperative. Late arrivals will be admitted however they will not be given extra time. Also make sure that it looks good in default, as that will be the texture it will be judged in.

Judging
Judging will be based on a criteria relating to what the theme is. I can't give out said criteria at this moment in time due to the chance of giving a hint as to what it is, however I will reveal it after I announce the theme on the day of the battle. Myself and other build team members will be in charge of judging.

Here's how prizes will go:
The prizes will be awarded to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place.
The prizes will be given mainly based on attendance. It'll be tokens with 1st place receiving a certain amount, 2nd place half that, and 3rd place half of 2nd place. It's mainly based on attendance due to the fact that if we lets say get, hypothetically, 5 people to come for the tournament, then giving out a large sum for a small tournament isn't really the greatest of ideas.

Rules
If you break any of these you will be disqualified or worse.

1. Do not mess with other players (i.e. moving around their area if you finished and bothering them, etc. )
2. Do not build before time begins and do not build after time stops.
3. Build team members are prohibited from participating, however they have been given the privilege to judge the builds along with me.
EVERYTHING HERE IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE, PLEASE MAKE SURE TO LOOK AT THIS ONE MORE TIME BEFORE THE CONTEST BEGINS! THE DAY OF THE EVENT CAN CHANGE AS WELL.
That means rules, prizes, etc.

If you have any issues, I'd prefer it if you sent me (Axewarrior) a conversation here on the forums.
