Announcing: Lounge Access changing August 1st!

Announcement: Opening of the Lounge

All right everypony! Got another update coming your way. Starting on August 1st access to the Lounge creative world will be changing in compliance with Mojang’s updated EULA requirements. Now this is a two part announcement, since some things are going to be changing over time.

The Lounge world will now be able to be accessed by all users. The ultimate plan is to have Lounge access granted to users by completing a currently under construction server dungeon. More details about this dungeon will be released and updated as time goes on and it nears completion. What this means is that upon completing the dungeon, users will be granted permanent access to the Lounge world for creative play!

Since the dungeon still needs to be completed, and the MLC staff want to be sure we’re not stepping on Mojang’s toes, access to the Lounge will be available for non donators for a price upon entry. Every time a non-donator enters the Lounge, they will be charged 200 bits to go there. This is only a temporary cost for entry, and will be removed once access can be earned through the dungeon.

That the gist of things, but in case there are those of you who need more specified answers, feel free to read below! In the mean time, Happy Minecrafting!

All right everypony! We’re bringing out a new thing for all of you who like to chat and hang out.  Introducing MLC’s new IRC, or Internet Relay Chat!

(UPDATE: If you were kicked early on due to sessions limits, that issue should be fixed now. If you have problems connecting, let staff know through the forums or other means. Thanks!)

Many of you are probably already in the MLC Official Skype chat. We think it’s wonderful to have a place for the community to come together and talk about things while not playing  Minecraft or another game. This is our newest iteration of a chat for any and all to hop into, and is one that will hopefully be more accessible for users!

You can find a link to the chat -here- and down below will be all kinds of information and important commands for those of you who want to know more!

For the time being enjoy the new chat, and happy Minecrafting!

Rules Update

Updated rules from your neighborhood friendly princesses!

Hey Pones. We’ve recently made an update to our rules. We’d been seeing players taking Factions too seriously or just being jerkwads about just playing games, frankly users need to get over it when things happen to them as part of the way the game is meant to be played and not lower themselves to the sort of behavior this rule is talking about. The new rule is as follows:

“At the end of the day this community is just about playing games. Lashing out and calling each other names, and slandering each other over stuff in a game, like Factions, is not acceptable. In short, don’t make it personal. Don’t make it a problem. If something is bothering you about a game mode you are playing, don’t play it, or speak with a staff member about the issue if it is something that staff could solve. Any player caught making personal attacks out of anger or spite will be subject to punishment in the form of mutes or bans at staff discretion.”

Again, verbally abusing players or going around behind their backs to lie about them and discredit them is not okay. Painting yourself as a victim or a hero of a situation where you were also in the wrong is not okay.

Anyway, Happy Minecrafting.
