Hello everyone!
The staff have finally been able to discuss and roll out our new punishment and appeals system. I have detailed these changes below for your benefit. :) Please note that most of these changes were player-requested.

The first change: How Points Accumulate
Under the old system, points accumulated for the entirety of your time on the server. Now, Minor (2 points), and Moderate (5 points) warnings will "time out" after 1 and 2 years respectively. What does "time out" mean? In general, it means that that warning will not be accounted for in your punishments, unless you demonstrate a pattern of behavior.
For example, lets say that you were warned for Overbreeding 4 years ago. Then a week ago you were warned for Swearing in Discord. The Overbreeding would not accumulate with the Swearing, and so you would only have 2 points of "Active Warnings". However, let's say if 4 years ago you were warned for Avoiding the Filter. This is related to swearing, and so would be added on to your Swearing in Discord warning, and you would have 4 points of Active Warnings.
This allows staff to better recognize when something is a "whoops I didn't understand the rules in a minor way" and someone who is constantly choosing to disobey the rules. Major and Severe infractions will never time out due to the threat they present to the community and/or the server itself.

The second change: The Appeal System
Punishment appeals, per player request, will now be handled privately. When you submit the form it will not be posted publicly, and will be handled in forum DMs between you, the staff member, and our Senior Admin of Staff and Player Affairs.

Finally: On The Rules
Staff cannot possibly spell out every single way you could break the rules. In fact, if we tried to do so, we would end up creating more loopholes of things we forgot to include! In general, the point is to be making a conscious effort to obey the SPIRIT of the rules. Be kind to each...
Hello everyone!

We are super excited to see how much everyone is loving the new map and all of its new mechanics (how ‘bout them flying asteroids, amirite??). The level of engagement and support from you all has been a bit overwhelming, and we love you guys for the level of awesomeness you’re showing each other.

SO, we want to give you guys a bunch of updates on things you’ve been asking about. See the list below!

  1. Horses TPing? We’re working on it! This was a bug, but we want to make sure it’s good to go so nobody loses their trusty steed. <3
  2. Guilds? How do they work? Do I have to join one? What’s with the prices?? The guilds are a completely optional part of our economy. However, you are likely to end up interacting with guild members as a part of the economy. They essentially break the ashop up into different “categories” based on what each guild produces. The prices are, well, a work in progress. We can only do so much guessing as to exactly how you all will play ahead of time, but we have to let you give the server a “crash run” to know where our real problem areas are.
  3. Mending? Mending is NOT allowed on this map (main/explore/asteroids - it will be allowed in worlds like survival and skyblock in the future). The short explanation is that it discourages tool trade and bogs the economy down. If you come across a tool with mending or a mending book, please file a ticket immediately and do not use it. We will provide you with a small compensation for it. :)
  4. I’m having a really really hard time getting X item, can you help us? We designed this to be a bit “slow starting”. If you guys had everything right at the start, that would be no fun! You’re doing great, trust the process. <3
  5. Will this mineworld reset at the start of November? Nope! This one will carry us through the end of November.
  6. HELP! I’m trapped against the edge of/around a region! Not to fear! Create a ticket at the location of...

Important Updates Wrapping Up This Map...
Hey all! We finally have some dates and deadlines for you. Here's what you need to know to get prepared for the end of this map, and the start of the new one, as well as some prep for creative closing. Please read below for all the details.
  1. THE SERVER WILL BE CLOSING ON OCTOBER 28TH. The snapshot for download will happen on that day. All items you wish to keep/have in the download map should be stored in a dispenser or hopper. Those you don't care about can be left in chests.
  2. THE DEADLINE FOR CREATIVE PLOT REQUESTS IS NOVEMBER 15TH. You can find the form for that here. If you do not submit before October 28th and are unable to tell us the coords, just let us know that in your form response. We will take care of it and contact you with any issues.
Thanks everyone for your patience, as always let us know if you have any questions!

A Whole New World New Horizons
Hello all, it's time for another, and hopefully final, change in direction for NCT. Here's where we're at so far, although our plans are still in their final decision making stages. We know things are super chaotic and confusing, but we will do our absolute best to make things clear for you.
1) I will be taking over Kelsey's position as Head Admin of Nerdcrafteria.
2) The map WILL be resetting, and it is unlikely all worlds will come back immediately. A map download will be made available.
3) Some of you probably know that we have been working on a second server to continue NCT's legacy - you can find its planning details on our temporary setup Discord here: Right now, it's our intention to use many of those plans/builds/setups as the first iteration of NCT in 1.13. For those of you not on that discord, it is currently a heavily space themed world consisting of a main map, skyblock "apartments", and a mining world.
4) Oh yeah, the server will be moving to 1.13.
5) We are planning to have a Town Hall on Tuesday, October 16th at 7:30pm EST to go over everything we're planning and working on. I really hope to make these a more regular thing.
6) Most importantly: Our goal here is transparency. Please feel free to send me questions, or post them here publicly. Please understand, however, that we are people and can only answer your questions so quickly. Here are our current FAQs to get you started:
We are incredibly excited to bring these two servers together into something great. :tinyheart: Thanks all!
Important Updates September/October Mineworld
Hello friends,

With the outpouring of awesome I've seen displayed this month in Mineworld, I'm pleased to announce that staff will not be resetting mineworld for October. Staff came to this decision because Mineworld was used to make some awesome builds, it was not stripped of resources, and players wanted to see it stick around a while longer.

Enjoy and DFTBA

LordStormy and the staff of Nerdcrafteria
Happy Birthday!!!

The staff of Nerdcrafteria are so happy and excited that we are able to have one final birthday celebration with all of you! We hope to see you join in on all the festivities!

Firstly, you'll notice that you have access to /fly, /heal, and /feed commands! Go and explore! We also plan to have other boons running in abundance. Enjoy!

Check out /warp birthday for some festive fun! Solve puzzles and complete a parkour course to earn special items, then take these items to /warp witchcrafteria and help light up the meters one last time!



Be on the lookout throughout our week-long birthday party event for more! We have fun things planned, such as mini games parties and a spectacular fireworks display! We hope to see you all there!

A Whole New World New Skyblock Season!
Somewhere Over the Rainbow
This season we have a theme!
Show us your true colours by building an island as vivid as your imagination. This season will run from now until the end of December. At the end of the season, three vibrant islands will be chosen to win a special main world prize.

Stay tuned for last season's island round-up!

Updates and Important Info:
  1. We think we have increased mob spawning rates but it's a work in progress and we need your feedback. We want to balance mob spawning with the fact that some players have older computers with more lag. Please let staff know if you suddenly have issues playing.
  2. One. Hank-o-Lantern. If you don't understand, you will, and if you do, rejoice!!!
  3. We have a challenge currency! Every time you complete or repeat a challenge, you will be given a red sand block. The final challenge is to collect and submit all 1800 red-sand blocks..... (you have a little wiggle room, that isn't quite all the repeats). If you complete that final challenge, modreq for a special skyblock mainworld prize and 5000 llamas! If you don't care about the final challenge - use the red sand however you like.
  4. The bug where the torches don't light...
