    Hi Everyone,

    So obviously it would be awesome to setup a Minecraft server again. When we had ShadowBlox in the first place it was incredibly fun, made lots of people happy and created strong friendships. This is the official thread where we can talk about making a new Minecraft server happen!

    The easiest way for me to start the process of creating a Minecraft server is to list all the things I'd need to know including what my concerns are. After that, together we can figure out what exactly we want to do and how to make it happen.


    What We Need To Know/ Figure Out

    • What kind of server would everyone like? For example Creative, Survival, Factions, Minigames, Adventure Map, Proxy, Combination of Everything?
    • Minecraft has changed a lot since ShadowBlox - How can we adapt to compete with the new servers and become the best Minecraft server again?
    • I'm extremely busy with college, work and life in general. Obviously I'll try to be around as much as possible but to be honest I don't have the time to play Minecraft as much as I used to. How will we recruit staff and choose people who are dedicated enough to Minecraft to run the server?
    • How would we fund the server? Technically we'll have to follow the Minecraft Server Monetisation rules which can be found here.
    • How will we attract lots of players?
    That's just a few things we'll need to think about to get started. If you have any other ideas, concerns or ways to get this started please reply to this thread. Thank you and hopefully together we can rebuild the ShadowBlox Minecraft server. Please remember there are no guarantees that we'll get another Minecraft server started. We need to get funding and have enough players who would frequently use the server.

    I agree with alot has changed since the server. Alot of people like Minigames, Skyblock, towny, and i believe people still like reg. creative and survival. What the server once was people dont really want that anymore, they want little bit more. For me personally i like the old servers :p , To become one of the top MC servers we should try and advertise alot. I know that cost money but have that voting system bout instead of so many points u get ranked up just by that. I mean do it but not as low. Have 7 or 8 ranks for voting 3 Donation ranks and your owner / other staff. To start it all off we need some bit of money and have enough money for 4 months. Now i dont know how much money from a good host your looking at will be if you have an idea please post the price. For starting an Minecraft server these days u need to work really hard and most servers dont survive after 4 or 5 months. I just read the rules on donations, and two things i know that we did and can not do anymore but the other stuff that we did are ok by the rules. Hope i was helpful Luke and maybe we will be great again! P.S. (Make Minecraft Great Again!) LOL

    Thank you! The information you provided was very interesting and helped a lot :) Youre definitely right that servers have changed a lot and it's definitely hard to compete. As long as people have the determination to make it work though I believe it can be done!
