Multiplayer servers are, in many ways, every bit a work of art as a good mod or texture pack, and they are possibly one of the most community-centric projects one can undertake. This week, we're going to take a look at the Killion Detention Center, hosted by Markillion and Starzeh. It is a prison-themed server, and the first in the series to be spotlighted - of course, it will not be the last. If you visit (or host!) a particularly amazing server, please let me know about it, and I'll see if I can spotlight it for you! I love seeing the amazing things people come up with, whether it's a themed server, an amazing build server, or anything at all, and I especially enjoy presenting it back to the community, so everyone can enjoy it.
Mojang's Mojam, LEGO
Starting this Friday, February 17th at 10 CET Mojang will be creating a new game LIVE with all of the money going to charity. In tandem with Humble Bundle, the Mojangstas will be producing a game in 60 hours or less, and they want your help!
Quote from Mojang »
We want your help to choose the theme and the genre. The highest and lowest voted from each category will be combined for the game. Of course, you’ve always wanted to play a Shoot Em’Up Dating Simulator with a Candy Land World War II theme. Choose wisely!
So make your voice heard, and be a part of an exciting new game - tell Mojang what you want to see them create in their poll right here!
Minecraft LEGO, For the Win
It's been a long time coming, but we have news on the Minecraft-themed LEGO project! Today, Carl, Notch, Jeb, Jon and Lydia are at the Bella Center in Copenhagen for LEGOworld to unveil LEGO Minecraft! Additionally, they have a video to commemorate the occasion, which you can see (along with specifics on the project) right here. Check it out!
I definatly have a great server for you guys! It is the coolest mix of Surviving and Building! No applications, no donating! Server up ALL the time! We have Skyblock islands! We have statues! We rock! I'll tell you the IP if your interested!
Meh. The lego minecraft thing didn't turn out so well, in my opinion. Looking at the pictures, i could barely tell it was supposed to be minecraft. I think they could have done something much more creative with it too, just four scenes that fit together. derp.

I had a signature here before, but I seem to have misplaced it..
Gotta admit, I love the voice of the guy doing the video. He should do voice overs, or maybe favor us with a Chris Hansen impression.
As for the Lego deal, dang... I'm disappointed with the set. When I pictured in my mind what was possible, I imagined something a lot cooler than what they came up with. I probably would have made the 4x1 bricks be a Minecraft cube, and put the Minecraft textures as decals on each side. I know it would have been expensive, but I would have preferred it.
Plus, then you could have a Steve that was minifigure-sized.
