Playing for 2 seasons/updates I suppose, at first I was kind of a lone wolf, not really wanting to be social and just wanting to be myself by myself majority of time yet the people on the server are really cool and just generally some of the best people I've met and I've became way more interactive with human kind than beforehand so credit to the amazing community. The server has a ton of benefits yet keep up with anything glitchy or buggy and completely balance the server, and they also make sure they know the public want it instead of forcing it down your throat like some other places usually would with updates, really cool 10/10 would minecraft again
I discovered this server by watching a video of a person who was stiffing small servers. I saw Vaniland, a small community of very nice people, I said to myself I MUST try this server. Now I have several friends and I play it often! Do what I did. Join this server now!

This is the first ever survival multiplayer minecraft server that I've actively participated in. When you join this server as a traveller, you immediately see a beautiful sight in front of you, with a bejewelled hub brilliantly displaying different portals to different realms. The server is easy to access, and just a pleasure to play on. The people who play in this server are friendly and easy-going, and most are with kind hearts who will offer you a helping hand if you ever do need one. The servers founders, Ski and Inna, are very kind and will always help you when you reach out to them! (Even when it's extremely late at night for them, they'll respond to your questions. XD) After a single day of playing on Java, I realized I was really bored and in need for friends to play with, but sadly all my friends are on mcpe. So, I searched up "friendly server" and Vaniland popped up! I hesitantly put in the join server thingmajigs and was instantly teleported to a beautiful hub, with spiral quartz staircases decorated with sea lanterns and glittering waterfalls. I was instantly greeted by a player upon arrival, and they were extremely sweet. They helped me with my underground house, and another one gave me the terracotta I needed to finish off my walls. They were so kind!
So what are you waiting for? Come join us!! I'll always be here to help you with anything, and many more excitedly await you!! Seems to good to be true? Kinda, but Vaniland is a very peaceful and lovely server, no joke.
I came onto Vaniland having never really played on servers before wanting to find some friends and play in a community. Within moments I knew it was exactly what I needed. It's such a welcoming place and everyone is friendly and chatty. On top of that there's a very supportive discord in which someone is always able to help out. The founders of the server are amazing and play often, you really get a chance to talk to them and they interact regularly, chatting away. It's become a really safe space for me, and a place to relax after stressful days. I've made some really good online friendships and have had some brilliant laughs and conversations. One thing I adore is the server is family friendly and if someone's uncomfortable discussing something, everyone respects that and the topic is changed! There is no tolerance for nastiness and griefing which creates a wonderful trust environment which allows you to fully relax.
Gameplay wise, the founders are amazing at updating things and keep us in the loop regarding restarts and plug ins. They handled the transition to 1.17 beautifully and allowed us to bring bases across if we wanted. Further they have built a gorgeous hub with so much detail and portals to the wild, nether and more. The other players are always helpful in providing resources if needed and will help with crazy big builds when they have free time!
If you are looking for a welcoming safe and fun environment, come join us in Vaniland. You really do feel cared for and supported! I'll be waiting to say welcome! <3
