Leaving the staff team

  • 943

Dear IC,

I have decided to take a break from being staff. I will most likely be as active in the community as I have been the whole time, just not as a staff member from now on. I'm not sure how long this break will last or if it will end at all, so I'm calling it a break just to be safe.

My time as a staff member has been a great experience: helping out around the server and trying to make sure it's a nice place to be are things I have really enjoyed doing. But I think it's time for me to leave the team, for a few private reasons.

Thanks for these years and especially thanks to those who back in the day decided to promote me! I also want to wish all the current staff members and the rest of the community good luck with everything in the future :)

Our dear friend Pyro has recived a flag for his land of Pyrovia, a sheild to emblazen it upon and an endless supply of fire from the Eternal Flame of Pyrovia. Also Iron Rank but you fine folks of IcicleCraft have probably noticed that.
There's still plenty more chances to donate to get everyone's pal Pyro

6 Years Later: Happy Birthday IC Once Again!
  • 1,134

Hello my dear friends,

Behold! This month of May marks Iciclecraft's 6 year anniversary, truly a remarkable feat! As the years have gone by, countless adventures, friendships, and experiences alike have occurred. The 1.9 World is already just over a year old, and her big sister the 1.7 World still remains for those who dwell within it and as a symbol of our accomplishments and cooperation.

However my friends, this past year has not been without its struggles. Arguably, this has been our toughest year, with a great horde of our companions drifting away from server activity, leaving many holes in the hearts of our members as the server seems to be left in icy stillness, void of the warmth of its denizens.

But know this: so long as there is at least one of us that still remains, the server will not die out. Now more than ever this community needs its members; the game itself may one day pass but our bonds are eternal and shall not be broken with the sands of time...

This is the follow-up for the previous thread in which the most popular choice was Cards Against Humanity. Above here is another poll to indicate which weekend(s) work out best for the most amount of members. For this poll you have 2 choices as to maximize availability and the chance for multiple game sessions. The sooner we can get everyone's availability the sooner we can get to playing! ;)

March-April 2017 Event Suggestions

Hey peeps!

Unfortunately the previous event (Labyrinth Minigame) didn't end up being completed or worked on too much, so will try to go for a different approach this time ;)

This period of time, I am proposing an out-of server event for everyone to participate in if they are available. Here are the suggestions, I will also create a poll to use for them:

  • Cards Against Humanity - I have already done this with several of our players, and many of us have "matured" a bit more, so why not add a few laughs ;)
  • Steam - I most likely would not be able to do this myself since I doubt steam could run on my laptop in its current condition, but playing Overwatch, TF2, Terraria, etc with other members would be possible ideas.
  • Iciclecraft Minigame Expeditionary Team - we would collectively go to another location to play minigames (no advertising allowed though :3) for a "short" period of time for @Cetec 's sake.
  • Any other suggestions or ideas are welcome...

Urgent Server Maintenance - Ontime Plugin Reset

  • 466

Hey peeps!

For anyone who is not on our Discord server or is currently wondering about the changes to their Ontime and Loyalty Points, here is an update from @GamerGuppy :

The Ontime/LP plugin has been reinstalled since there were several bugs. As a consequence people will have 0 playtime and 0 LPs as of now. These will be refunded with the help of a spreadsheet that contained the latest values right before we reinstalled OnTime. We will do so after fixing a few more bugs. Thanks for your patience.
There have also been a few other fixes from February 22, 2017:
  • Elytra flying with fireworks
  • /lp shop is functioning now properly, and rewards are summoned in upon purchase
  • /statue command now allows to change pose even after an armorstand statue is summoned in already
  • blue shulker boxes are now protected too (LWC)

Community Build/Mini-Game: The Maze

Hey peeps!

This event will be held for the week of February 12-18, 2017!!!

As promised, the day has finally arrived to announce the January-February Event! This event shall be the community build for a Herobrine Maze game. The gist will be that we will create a massive maze, full of all kinds of obstacles, booby traps, dead ends, tunnels, and anything you can think of. Once this is complete we will turn it into the Maze game (some of you who are older might think of Prophunt, however this is slightly different).

The game will comprise of 2+ players at a time and consist of two teams. The first team would be the Players, and the second team would be the Zombies. The Zombies would begin with only one player, and their goal would be to turn all the other Players into Zombies. After a Player has been killed by the Zombies, they turn into one and help the other Zombies to find and kill the remaining Players. The Players can win the game, however...
