Do you Minecraft? We Minecraft. Come play with us on our server!

Are you seeking an adventure or just simply miss the days as a kid building castles and forts out of blocks? If so, you're in luck as Neowin now has its own Minecraft server(which is powered by Hostway) where you can relive your childhood and build anything you want without mom interrupting you and telling you to clean up the giant mess that you have made.

If this sounds good to you, come join your fellow Neowin members, in the world of Minecraft where you will have a chance to fight zombies, scavenging for food, mining stone or chopping down enough trees to build a hut.

We have two different worlds you can play in. A survival world, where anything goes but you're pretty much on your own and we also have a creative world, where you can build anything you like with any block and there are no limits. We do hope you guys enjoy it and have fun, and we're excited to see what type of creations you guys bring. But before you join, please read the instructions and rules below.

so far since the server has been up i have had a lot of fun with those that have played and the seeds are good for both servers.!

I don't know much about Minecraft multiplayer, but if I were to play on the SMP server, how do I protect my property? Is there anything stopping someone from destroying it? Provided the "no griefing" rule sees an exception.

Chests, doors and fences can all be locked with the simple command "/lock". Chests are locked by default though so no one can gain access to them.

Oh, thanks! I'll find my username and hopefully get whitelisted then.

How about placed blocks? They cant just go around and destroy what you build? Or can they? Or is this a limited area?
