Feb 9, 2012Calling atheism a religion, or arguing that it isn't is kind of the same thing as squabbling about black being a color or the absence of light, or debating weather or not a thumb is a finger. It's really kind of pointless, and while, by definition, atheism is the lack of religion, many people call it a religion for lack of a better term.Posted in: Politics, Philosophy, News and Science

I'm sure someone has said this already, but I wanted to state my thoughts on the matter.

Depends, the majority of people in my experience say that they "don't follow any religion" as opposed to saying their atheist.
I mentioned earlier in this thread that I believe to label you're self as an atheist to be rather pointlesss. It's only in countries where atheism is a minority that people feel the need to call themselves atheist. Over here nobody gives enough thought into it to bother to give it a label. I spend way too much time thinking about what I do believe in, to be concerned about what I don't believe in.
I call myself an atheist for one reason
Person: What religion are you?
Me: I'm an atheist.
Person: Oh. Cool.
Person: What religion are you
Me: I don't follow a religion
Person: So you don't believe in any sort of god?
Then I have to explain my beliefs, in which case people tend to stare at my like my fly is down or something.
Jan 7, 2012Posted in: Politics, Philosophy, News and ScienceQuote from shadow2379
I would like to make a quick comment about Richard Dawkins and other outspoken atheists such as the late Christopher Hitchens and Sam Harris. I think that these type of people are important in making atheists an accecpted part of society. Here in the UK, atheism is pretty much accepted, but in the USA, it is widely UNaccepted. So unaccepted in fact that when former president George Bush Senior was asked 'Surely you recognize the equal citizenship and patriotism of Americans who are atheists?', he answered 'No, I don't know that atheists should be considered as citizens, nor should they be considered patriots. This is one nation under God.'. This is why we need people to speak out for atheism. It's not all about just believing, or lacking a belief, in god, but also being accepted in society as non-believers.
If it weren't for Dawkins on YouTube, I'd still be hiding my Atheism. He's truly a hero to many people.
Jan 1, 2012Bullying is really only a bad thing for people who allow it to be, but almost everyone will be made fun of in thier life, even adults do it.Posted in: General Off Topic
However, those that deal with it properly have less of an issue. Bullying campaigns need to stop being "Bullying is wrong and mean" for two reasons. One, people don't think that's cool, and two, it's targeting bullies and not helping victims.
If the campaigns were more of a "Stand up for yourself and have some confidence" campaign it would work so much better.

Friends, Romans, countrymen . . .
Imagine a growing, thriving civilization of hundreds of players spanning multiple servers; shining, bustling cities of glistening white marble reflecting the golden rays of the sun; fortresses surrounded by high curtain walls, bristling with the sharpened swords and decorated shields of dozens of Roman legionaries in silver plate armor; rank on rank of Romans leading units of allied soldiers from various clans, factions, and towns against barbarian armies; trade, resource gathering, politics, business, and architecture conducted by the Roman people and non-Roman allies; citizens of many cultures uniting together to form not a simple clan or faction, but a multiserver empire and nation that beats with a single heart.
This is the dream of Rome.
Join today and play your part in making the dream a reality.
~Emperor Marino94Vae Victus!TRE est. 2004MineCraft Branch est. 2012
The Roman Empire is a multi-game clan that has its origins on RuneScape, where it continues to thrive with over four hundred members. A MineCraft branch was constructed in 2012 by Emperor Marino94 and is determined to restore itself to the golden days of its early years. In order to do so, a committed, loyal base of Roman citizens and legionaries must be recruited in order to make that dream a reality again. Regardless of the type of player you are, dedicated or casual, PVP-oriented or survival-oriented, you should be able to find a role in our organization alongside others with similar interests.
Join our Discord server and fill out an application. All with good intentions are welcome. Regardless of skill or interests, we’re confident we’ll find a place for you in our community. https://discord.gg/MKr4mpX
Now that you’ve found the right community, find the right path. Put your talents and passions to good use by choosing the career that best fits you. Careers are not mandatory, but are strongly encouraged for those who want to make significant contributions to the empire and bring us closer to accomplishing our vision. Romans who take up careers earn clan currency, which can be traded in for rank-ups, real life rewards, and other perks (see Economy section for more info).
The Roman legions and auxilia are the elite protectors and heroes of the empire, charged with defending and growing our provinces, cities, and frontiers. Our legionaries are required to demonstrate honorable character, unwavering loyalty to the empire, a moderate amount of in-game activity, and combat prowess by passing a monthly combat test. Legionaries are well-paid in clan currency.
Administrators are necessary to govern the provinces, moderate disputes between Romans, manage our economy, enforce Roman law, negotiate treaties with allies and vassals, manage threads and recruitment posts, and handle all of the other desk work necessary to keep the empire functioning.
Companies are sub-organizations of the empire that have contracts to perform various functions, such as building and gathering, in return for increased amounts of clan currency.
The College of Pontiffs, or the Roman priesthood, is committed to creating fun events that players of all interests, Roman and non-Roman, can enjoy. Their secondary role is to spread Roman culture throughout MineCraft and even further within our own community.
Join our Discord server and see our Screenshots channel. Screenshots will be posted here eventually.
Citizen Count:Noncitizen Affiliates:Last Update:
Economy (Rewards Program)
Our “economy” is the exchange of resources and services between ordinary Romans, or between ordinary Romans and the government. We maintain a unit of currency that can be exchanged for resources and services, which is backed up by real-life money. In short, if you work for the clan, you receive currency. Our “rewards program” refers to our system of allowing Romans to trade in currency for in-game rewards or real-life rewards. At a certain rank, Romans can exchange currency for Steam gift cards and other real-life perks. More information is available on our Discord.
Our Discord is public and open to all, but most channels are for citizens, allies, and friends. There are channels for socializing, discussing the game, keeping up to date on important announcements, and finding out more information about the clan. Join and hang out with us! https://discord.gg/MKr4mpX
Thanks to the thousands of players who have joined and contributed in some capacity to prolonging and strengthening our fifteen year old clan, either on RuneScape, MineCraft, or our other small ventures here and there. Your service and loyalty is valued and appreciated.

Cubeaism – A Minecraft Religion
While day dreaming at work I created a fictional “religion” for the minecraft world. Play testing turned out to be fun in terms of role-play so I thought I would share. The religion of minecraft – Cubeaism – has three gods each representing different aspects of the world.
Terrae, is the female god of nature and is represented via trees, grass, mushrooms, lakes and rain. Also her eye is the sun, and it is said the day is actually her keeping an “eye” on the world. While she does, her creations prosper and grow.
Roki, is the male god of the deep and is represented via stone, minerals, lava and bedrock. His eye is the moon, and the night is the time he watches the world. While he does, it is a sign to take shelter or mine in the depths of the world.
Net, is the younger sibling of the two and is represented by mobs both evil and good. As he matured he created the various mobs of the world. But having created the evil mobs, Terrae and Roki banished him to the Nether as punishment.
The three working together created the minecraft world. Read the full creation story here:
In the time before there were 3 siblings; Roki, Terrae, and Net. They were bored with all that they had in their own dimension so pooling together their powers they decided to create a world to entertain them. Roki acted first, cutting off his finger and using it to build the bedrock core of the world. Then cutting off the rest of his arm he layered the world in smoothstone. Gathering his remaining energy, he struck the world as hard as he could with his right arm. The force of the blow created massive amounts of pressure causing diamonds, gold, iron and coal to form at different layers of the world. The resulting earthquakes created great chasms and cave openings leading deep into the earth.How to play Cubeasim!
Terrae, looking upon Roki's work said "It's a good start, buts it’s hard and cold. This world needs beauty and softness as well." And with that she reached down and picked up chunks of smoothstone and ate them. Chewing and melding them with her delicate tongue she turned the stone to dirt and spat it back up covering the world. Then she ran her hand over it and layered the dirt with grass short and tall. With great care she pushed 4 of her fingers into the earth. Removing each of them one by one; from the holes the first oak, birch, pine and spruce trees were born. She then cut her arm, and bled out onto the world creating the oceans.
Net, the youngest of the three was impressed with what the other siblings had done. But he had not yet fully realised his powers and became sad. He shed a tear and it fell onto the world the brothers had created, from the tear a tiny retarded chicken was born. Net was overwhelmed with joy at his creation, even though it had zero survival instincts and would aimlessly wander off cliffs as often as anything else, he still loved it. Over the years as Net further realised his power he created pigs, sheeps, cows, wolves and squids. The other brothers were proud of him and having watched him developing decided to teach him how to focus his power. With this, Net was able to create the first human.
The humans of the world prospered, and adored their creators. Terrae and Roki took shifts to watch the world, Terrae's eye was bright like fire and caused all her creations to prosper as she watched them. Roki's eye was white and cold, signalling the time for the humans to rest. Many ages past as the world prospered, Roki and Terrae were finally content and continued to watch over it. Net however, became bored and restless again. Using his power he created the first slime for his amusement. While mostly harmless, the slime had the power to hurt the other beings of the world. When Roki and Terrae looked upon it they were upset, and banished it to only live in the very depths of the world, away from the humans.
This infuriated Net and he demanded the brothers allow his creation room on the surface. The two refused, and having seen the brothers make sacrifices to enhance their powers he did the same. He cut off his ear, and used it to create the first zombie. Terrae and Roki were unable to banish this creature and it quickly began to decimate the humans that the pair loved so much. Seeing the progress of this monster made him want to create more, he pulled a bone from his arm to create skeletons and a 8 of his toes to create the spiders. Terrae, seeing Net's growing insanity cut out an eye and used it to curse his monsters with fire whenever she looked upon them. Roki and Terrae then turned to Net furious with him and pooled their powers together to banish him to a world of suffering and pain; The Nether. In his last defiant act before his banishment, Net tore his heart out and created the mighty creeper. This creature will stalk the land, immune to the powers of Terrae's eye, and would be a great calamity on the world
The humans of the world wiped out, their structures now overrun with creatures and slowly growing moss. Terrea and Roki turned to one another, and using all the energy they had left, they summoned one final human. Spent, the 2 gods are now only able to take turns passing there eye across the world, keeping close watch on their last creation. Steve
Simply pick your favorite god from one of the three posts below. Follow the guide to work your priest through the various levels of that path. I found it fun to make separate worlds and have that world devoted to a particular god. I would be in essence a priest of that god and follow the rules and rites of passage that apply to that faith. At differing levels of each path there are different challenges and build requirements.
When you have finished a path in full come here and post pictures! I would love to see them
There is another "game" based on restrictions to enhance game-play created by Iamchris27 that centre's itself around building a city through a number of stages. Worth checking out. Link here.
Other Gods / Figures / Lesser Gods
Penna: A peaceful path concerned with building in the sky. Fairly easy and is a different approach to most traditional building methods.
Glueco: Glueco loves cake. Build cakes for him. Cakes as far as the eye can see. A light hearted and more humorous take on the Paths. Very easy (except for level 4 haha)!.
Poise: A Cthulu inspired lesser god. Extremely difficult path. Still a WIP. Horror inspired ocean building path. If you can't handle it stick with Glueco...
Notch: A mysterious figure little is known about. He is rumoured to be the creator of the 3 known gods and to have a beard that is the very definition of manhood. It is said appropriate prayers to Notch will allow the player to remove all evil from the world via quoted: “peaceful mode”. Any ancient texts found in relation to this omniscient and omnipotent figure should be submitted to me immediately.
ArchebuS: A devout priest of Roki who went beyond his duties as one of the faithful. This figure was chosen by the 3 gods to act as the metatron or “voice”. The gods imparted their knowledge’s and wisdom onto him and he spreads the word to new potential priests. He is said to appear as a humanoid/crow creature in a black suit.
HerobrinE: Appears in almost human form but with hollow empty eyes. Even followers of Roki are afraid of this being. Nothing is known of his habits, goals or his purpose. It is unknown whether he is the creation of one of the three gods... or a product of something even more sinister.

Sep 15, 2011vexx32 posted a message on [!READ THE OP!] Buying Minecraft Gift Codes for Others!Posted in: DiscussionREAD THE GUIDELINES
BEFORE MAKING A REQUEST
If you do not read the entire post, I reserve the right to ignore you, whether you're trolling, flaming, asking for codes while you already have a paid account, or just being irritating.
Read the entire post before making a comment or request.
I had something like this set up over on SporeBase forums. I keep a little thread there to let new members know what I'm doing, and it directs them here. They're a small forum, but I ended up buying several people gift codes. (Screenshot of the "Gift Codes" section of my profile page below the list for a small proof).
Please note, before you try to say I'm a scammer or something like that... I am not asking you to participate in any scamming survey, join up for a website, or anything like that, OK?

Got an interesting idea the other day, from a user in my Riddles thread round here. It is this: if I put up a riddle once a month, and give you all a week to solve it, the winner gets a code instantly, regardless of their position on the list. People who have not yet got onto the list are also able to enter, but while I will give at most three hints to people who are on the list, I will not give any hints to those not on the list.
To be honest, it probably isn't that much of a handicap, but I'd prefer to give users on the list already a slight advantage. If you can solve the riddle, you get the code. Simple as that. However, because I like to make it a very tough challenge, I'll not indicate if you're on the right track or not (i.e., I'll only tell you whether you're right or wrong), apart from the three hints (which will be the same three hints for each person).
To avoid clogging up this thread, all answers to the riddle must be PM'd to me. I'd prefer it if each member opened one private conversation with me, and then replied to that each time, rather than drowning the rest of my inbox in new conversations each time they have a new guess. The riddle will be posted in this section of this thread.
Also, you may not go and post this riddle anywhere else in order to try and get help from others who use that site. Last time, someone posted it to a Yahoo! Answers site, but posting it to any site or forum is a violation of the rules. You must not use the Internet to get help for these. You may gather a few friends or family (as in, people you know outside of the Internet) and try to solve it together, but once more the riddle must not be spread around the Internet, at least until the competition is over.
If I hear of anyone doing it again, that person will be disqualified from all future competitions of this nature. We can and will find out if you do. The Internet is a very easy place to trace people. If the person who did it is on the list, their entry will be removed. I cannot abide cheaters. Cheating will not help you. Do it fairly or not at all.
You are all forbidden from posting this riddle anywhere on the Internet for any purpose whatsoever until the competition has ended for this riddle. I am keeping a private list of the riddles, the associated hints and the answers for each (which will be released either after the one-week period, or as soon as someone guesses the answer), so that you may confound your friends and anyone else you meet on the Internet in the event I come up with an incredibly difficult riddle. If you want any of the previous riddles, you need only ask.
IF YOU FAIL TO READ THE RULES CONCERNING THE RIDDLE (YEAH, THAT TEXT JUST UP THERE), DO NOT BOTHER SENDING ANY GUESSES. THE RULES ARE BINDING, AND I WILL NOT TOLERATE THOSE WHO BREAK THEM, KNOWINGLY OR NOT.
By clicking the spoiler and revealing the riddle, you acknowledge you have read and understand my rules. Break them at your own peril. I shall have no trouble tracking you down, for the other hopeful guessers you have wronged will not be too pleased with you either. If you want to clarify the rules, PM me.
Riddle Solved by dinofire.
Riddles and rhymes, rosemary and thyme;
Fire and smoke and endeavours sublime,
Elements all aflame with passage of time.
Air shimmers with lack of heat and earthen
Flame ascends to high echelons of heaven:
A new soul appears as ancient clock tolls 'gain.
Knowledge, power, sight and Death;
All can be altered save till ending's breath,
When even Time goes all but deaf.
Bound and caged in bars of iron and steel,
Rules and laws to bring them to heel;
To make them harm and slowly heal.
I do all these things and more, although
My full extent rises like fresh dough
'Till the end of all, lost 'mongst Time's flow.
What am I?
Mojang have begun selling Minecraft in stores in the United States! You can now buy Minecraft "prepaid cards" which contain a gift code and can be used to buy Minecraft. If you're unable to buy Minecraft over the Internet, and you live in the US, you can go into a Target, Walmart or Best Buy store and purchase a copy. More information here:

How it works
One thing I have been seeing a fair bit of is people picking at little inconsequential details in others' posts. Don't be tempted to do this. It only starts arguments, which we do not need. If you do, however, find something in another person's post or you find some solid evidence that they're lying (or just have some suspicions about the request), feel free to PM either myself, or Sgt. Traveler about it.
If you want a gift code, there are only two requirements - you must not already have bought Minecraft (requesting codes for other people is OK, but they'll need to contact me through PM or e-mail to prove they actually exist), and you must also have a good reason why you cannot buy the game (whether it's financial trouble, your parents won't let you buy stuff over the Internet, you don't have any money, etc).
Each fortnight, no more than one person will be added to the list... but also that if no requests show a reasonable display of effort and care, there is the possibility the nobody may be added that week. In that case, I will simply not add anyone to the list, and the list cap effectively goes down by one.
I have recently seen an increase in people PMing or emailing me, requesting gift codes. Do not request via PM or e-mail. Please, just post on this thread. It is a hundred times easier to just check the thread for requests rather than having to sort through PMs and such. If you have trouble with posting or posts not appearing, talk to a moderator or administrator, or post in the Forum Help section.
Do not contact me through PM or e-mail unless absolutely necessary, you are considering donating/helping out, or there is something else you wish to discuss privately.
You may, however, contact me via PM if you wish to talk to me privately, but that should not (for the most part) be necessary. In order for me to consider you for a gift code, you must reply with a request for one. I will keep a list in the OP with people who've asked and haven't yet received their codes, and I'll also keep a list of people I bought codes for.
The gift code will be sent to you via PM, unless you specifically ask otherwise.
There will be no scamming or anything like that involved, you don't have to sign up for anything. This is a free gift I am offering out of generosity. I am hoping some others will follow suit, but we will see. For now, it's just me. Sgt. Traveler is our resident helper when am not around and he'll be able to answer just about any question (although keep in mind that he is not a moderator, so if there's any rule-breaking, just report it). Feel free to ask questions here, or via PM, whichever you prefer.
If any others want to buy codes for people, they can PM me about it (or post here) and they can buy codes on a predetermined basis (or just one for a particular person they choose).
They themselves will send the code to the recipient, and I will ask for screenshot proof (from their minecraft.net or account.mojang.com account page) that they have given the code to the person before removing them from the "Waiting List".
I will remove members as soon as I send out codes to them. I am very busy these days, and frequently forget to remove people, so I've decided to remove them as soon as I've sent them the PM containing the gift code. If I see that a member who is next in line for receiving a code has been inactive for at least a month, I will simply remove them. This is moving at snail-pace as it is, and I have no desire to make people who are willing to follow my rules wait any longer than necessary.
If a person has not redeemed their code after a week's time of sending the PM, I'll give that code to another. This applies to active people as well, if they suddenly become inexplicably inactive. This is simply to keep things moving smoothly. In other words, check every few weeks where you are on the list, maybe every week if you're near the top to avoid being passed by.
Now that that's all explained, I ask one last time, please do not troll, flame, spam or otherwise degrade the quality of this topic. If you have ideas for improving my methods, you may suggest them. Sarcastic/Non-Serious/Degrading ideas will not be tolerated. Thanks.
One more thing. I myself will be buying codes on a basis of one per week. I'm not a millionaire.
Don't get annoyed if it takes a while. I may make exceptions and buy several codes at once on occasion, but don't count on it too often. I no longer have a job, so you guys are lucky my government has unemployment support payments.
If you wish to request a code for another person besides yourself, they must contact me if at all possible in any way. Either by e-mail (joelpfrancis[AT]gmail[DOT]com) or through PM on the forum, but they'll need to contact me. If they have not contacted me after several weeks, they may be removed when I next tidy up the list.
If special occasions arise (unable to contact me for some time, etc.) and I am notified, I may make exceptions.
All gift codes given through this will come from my own Minecraft/Mojang account (Vexx32 | [email protected])
Share and Enjoy!

You are in no way obligated to use these guidelines as any more than a guide, but don't complain if we tell you to look at these, as we will often have good reason for doing so. With many thanks to Enquent, who devised the majority of this, these are the guidelines for posting a request for a gift code.
N.B.: It is not necessary to include the headings. I would recommend you avoid doing so, but if you wish to, feel free.
== Short introduction ==
1-2 sentences about how you found out about this thread, how you found out about Minecraft and what you thought of it. You may include mention of mods, custom maps, texture packs, or anything else you have found thus far.
== Request body ==
3-5 sentences in paragraph form, within which you should include your age, why you are unable to purchase Minecraft, your financial or life situation that doesn't allow you to, other possible ways you've attempted to get Minecraft. Are you in school, university/college, high school? Do you live with your parents/on your own/with friends/family? Are you barely making ends meet living on your own?
== Closing == (Not required)
A polite closing, a 'thank you for reading', followed by your forum username or in-game name never hurt and looks nice making the whole post seem complete and finished.
== Further Information == (Not Required)
How many requests you have submitted thus far, one or two of your previous requests (not in a quote - preferably in a spoiler tag), and any other information not mentioned above you think we should know.
## Note ##
Please do your best to use clear English, with proper spelling and grammar. I am able to translate other languages using a machine translation and get the general gist of it, but it's a poor subsitute for what you yourself can probably write in most cases. If you need assistance in common spelling or grammatical errors, I will simply direct you to these two excellent comics which address the common problems we see around the internet these days:
http://theoatmeal.co...ics/misspelling (commonly misspelled words)
http://theoatmeal.com/comics/semicolon (how to use a semicolon)
The length of each section above is only a guide and you may expand upon the amount of writing in each, but refrain from shortening them, as the guide above gives minimum amounts to mitigate the amount of simple, one-line requests.
## Formatting & How to Use it ##
I have noticed that some people have taken to using a small amount of formatting. I have no problem with this, and I do encourage it, for it makes your main points stand out and improves the readability, but only if used in good taste.
- Use colors like yellow or a light grey that are difficult to read on the forum's white-grey background.
- Split or break words with formatting (e.g., freedom). This breaks the flow of the sentence and makes it very confusing to read.
- Format everything. Doing so just makes it harder to read, and more annoying. Sure, it stands out, but it's like shouting at someone incessantly. Nobody likes it.
- Use a non-standard font size for your entire post, or a large part of it. Make sure it is of a readable size!
- Use excessive amounts of paragraphs. They should be used to group sentences together that share an idea or focus.
- Start a new paragraph for every single sentence or every two sentences.
- Use formatting to emphasize your main points.
- Use formatting only as required.
- Use a variety of colours, if you feel the need. It helps break the monotonous look of a post and makes it easier to read. Not necessary, so don't go overboard.
- Take note of anything you could yourself use that you notice in the requests I quote, and use it well.
- Read over your request to double-check that it is readable and easy to understand.
- Use paragraphs to break your post into sections, as outlined in the main Guidelines section.
This will, of course, be mainly applicable for those requesting a gift code for themselves, but if you are requesting one for someone else, merely modify the template as needed.
Once again, this is not required, but it will help make your request look 'professional' and easy to read. Two pages of poorly written requests means nobody gets added to the list!
In addition, anyone found to have copied any part of someone else's request is instantly disqualified from my consideration. The name of the game is effort here, and I will not tolerate people stealing someone else's story.
Words have power, and I will not permit them to be stolen.

Feel free to make your own banners, but try to avoid confusing people; don't put things on your banners that don't match with what I do, or else we end up with silly arguments and lots of confused people. Don't make false claims, and do not misrepresent me, please.

These are the people who have generously linked their mod, map or texture pack through my adfly or adcraft account in order to donate to me, usually because they do not have enough spare money laying around to donate directly. This is a great way to do it, because every little bit counts, and will ensure that adf.ly/adcraft pay out the donations each month.
If you wish to donate, do so by clicking the above button.

Frequently Asked Questions
- "If someone is removed from the list by their own request, can I take their place?"
- "My request was quoted, but I'm not on the list?!"
- "Why haven't you quoted my request?"
- "I think someone is lying in their request! What do I do?"
- "How long will this take?"
- "What do I do if I didn't get quoted/picked?"
- "Can/Should I re-post my request?"
No. If someone requests their own removal from the list, you may not take their spot. It is unfair to just about everyone else on the list who has been waiting. There is one exception that I will allow. This is if the person no longer wishes to be on the list wants to give up their spot to another, instead of me simply removing their name. This exception exists for two reasons. First, because it is a request from them directly, without others clamouring to take the spot. Second, because it would amount to the same thing as them not telling me and then just giving the code to any other person (typically a friend or sibling).
Back to Frequently Asked Questions
"My request was quoted, but I'm not on the list!"
If your request was quoted, congratulations. You've submitted a good-quality request. This doesn't automatically mean you're going to get onto the list, but it does mean you have a good chance. I only pick one person out each week to go on the list, so that everyone can have a chance to post a request. If you were quoted but not added, then please re-post your request. Do not quote your original/previous request; the forum doesn't like nested quotes, and removes them. This can make it confusing, and also means that I can't show off your request again properly. Either amend your original request, or put it somewhere in your post with any additional information you wish to include.
Back to Frequently Asked Questions
"Why haven't you quoted my request?"
I only quote the best requests, in order to show everyone what has a high chance of getting into the list, but I read every request. If you weren't quoted, then it generally just means your request wasn't good enough. If you think I have in fact overlooked you, then feel free to let me know; either just post again or PM me, preferably with the request included. I do my best to read each and every post on this thread, so it is very unlikely that I miss any, but it can and occasionally does happen.
Back to Frequently Asked Questions
"I think someone is lying in their request! What do I do?"
PM either myself, Sgt. Traveler or Enquent about it. Quote the suspect post, and give your reasons and/or evidence against it. Be clear and concise. If we decide your suspicion is well-founded, we will investigate. It is preferable you do not pick apart someone else's request in the thread here, unless we have specifically asked for public opinion on the matter, since it can quite easily start a mud-slinging contest.
Back to Frequently Asked Questions
"How long will this take?"
Let's do the math. I myself buy usually one code per fortnight, whilst Enquent typically buys around two codes each week (Enquent's had to stop buying codes for the moment due to a change of circumstances). That's around 2-3 codes every week.The list is around 430 long, so we'll work out how long it takes for you to get from bottom to top. 430 divided by 3 gives 143 weeks. Divide by 4 to get 36 months. 65 divided by 12 gives around 3 years. So yeah, long wait... :/
We do what we can to shorten it, but it got out of hand a while back, and we haven't managed to totally reign it in again just yet.
N.B.: This is no longer accurate, but it should still give a rough idea. I'll come back and update it every so often, but till then I'm sure a little math never hurt anyone.
N.B.: This is no longer anywhere near accurate. I am currently buying codes on my own, and can only presently afford a code every two weeks. It's going to be a long wait, short of me suddenly getting rich.
Back to Frequently Asked Questions
"What do I do if I didn't get quoted/picked?"
If you weren't quoted, your request was not overlooked. It simply means your request needs a bit of work. Read the guidelines and see what you can improve on. If you were quoted and not chosen to go on the list, see if you can add anything to your request and make it clearer and more concise. A little formatting may help, but use it wisely. Re-post your request to be considered for the next week's addition to the list. Only one person from each week's requests will be added, and I do not dig back beyond a week (not beyond my last decision post).
Back to Frequently Asked Questions
"Can/Should I re-post my request?"
If I have added someone to the list, you are required to re-post your request if you still want to be taken into consideration. If you were not quoted, you will need to improve your request, and even if you were, it's probably a good idea to try to refine your request a little more. Read over the guidelines, and perhaps add a touch of careful formatting.

First and foremost, just post on this thread. I read every reply that is posted, and I reply to almost all of them where a reply is warranted.If you feel the need to contact me privately, you can also PM me here on the forums, or email me. I can also be contacted on SporeBase Forums, where I am known by the same name. My email address is [email protected]. If you wish to contact me about helping me out with this, please PM me. I will answer your questions and we should be able to make some sort of arrangement. Since Mojang has recommended circumventing the restriction with multiple accounts, I'll probably give each person access to one "gift code" account at a time, through which they'll buy codes. This way, everyone knows they're going through me, and the people helping can keep their 5 gift codes on their account for their close friends and such.

bnvdarklord has kindly made a nifty little tool you can use to keep track of the list without needing to come here all the time. It displays the title of the thread and the total number of list entries, along with the list itself. It also allows you to search or filter the list to find a certain username. Download it here:http://www.mediafire...6w5oltxvbv42n0o

Awesomeslayerg has set up a Steam group for this effort. I myself do not largely use Steam, but if the group gets enough members, I'm sure I'll find some use for it!

Aug 12, 2011Path of Net – The Lost FaithPosted in: Discussion
Being a priest of Net is a more … strange … path then the other 2 siblings. Again play minecraft as normal until you are ready to make the transition to an initiate of Net. In comparison with western fantasy troupes Roki’s followers would closely resemble anything Chaotic or Evil.
Materials: Netherack, soulsand, cobblestone, mossy cobblestone, obsidian, fire, redstone, lightstone and Wool.
Colours: Purple, Pink, Magenta, Red
Weapon: Flint&Steel / Bucket of Lava
Shrine: Netherack in the shape below with each tip on fire.
-- Level 1 – Slight Psychosis --
Abandoning Reason: As logic leaves your mind you decide that you would be better off living in a hole than in anything you could build. Find a cave, and live in it. Put your workbench, storage chest and furnace there. You may not alter the cave in any way except for adding torches.
Chicken Saviour: You may never harm a chicken. And if you see one wandering into danger you must do everything you can to save it or push it out of harm’s way.
-- Level 2 – Completely Psychotic --
Needs more fire: You and nature don’t really agree anymore. Burn down anything flammable in view from your cave. Laugh manically as you flee the destruction.
I'm Coming Master: Build an obsidian portal so you can get to the nether! Dance upon arrival.
Fortress of DOOM: After arriving in the nether using only the material listed for Net; build yourself a fortress worthy of only the most truly deranged mind.
I hate you tree: Plant a single tree in the nether that you can grow for creating tools. Avoid the tree as much as possible. If you do have to cut it down insult the tree loudly in garbled incoherent speech.
-- Level 3 – Transcended Reality --
Return to the Surface: Having been to the nether and hung with Net. You had tea and biscuits with him and everything it was ****ing awesome because you remember it clearly. You must return to the surface world and spread the word of your faith…. by burning things. Burn everything. Everywhere. Everytime you fully burn a forest down build a shrine to Net so the cows know you were there.
Waste not the flesh: Your fascination and connection with Net is growing. You may no longer harm mobs that can harm you. You instead must flee and find a way around them.
