If you recall, we have been hard at work getting the new, improved Minecraft Forum up and ready to go! Loaded with improvements - ranging from post editors that don't eat your formatting anymore, to improved load times, layouts, and more - we think you will really enjoy them! However, we need your help putting the final touches on everything.
Ideally, we want the new forum format to go live next week, but just to be sure everything is in order, we would like you to help us test everything out! Make posts! Edit posts! Report me, and everyone else you see on the beta forum! Anything and everything you can think of to help us make it the very best it can be when it goes live is greatly appreciated. Even better, constructive feedback (positive or negative) could earn you a custom title on the new forum!
Today is a very special day, Minecrafters! We are very excited to invite you to beta-test the new, improved Minecraft Forum! This beta is the final step in moving Minecraft Forum onto the Cobalt community platform, an in-house platform that provides an improved forum experience, a full suite of content management tools, and faster loading times!
So, what does this mean for you? Well, we would like your input! Head over to the beta forum, give it a spin, and let us know what you think! Try out post formatting, searching around, anything you can think of! Upvote your friends! Report me for rule infractions! Test everything! If you would like to leave us feedback - good, bad, anything at all - see below!
If you have feedback to provide, a feature request, or you have found a bug please see the following threads:
Every user that provides valuable feedback during the beta will be given an exclusive forum title to use once the site is live!
Cobalt provides a number of new and improved features, this includes - but is not limited to - the following:
Member Titles: Earn new member titles and select your member title of choice via My Account > Titles!
New Content: Watch as new posts and threads are created with the automatically refreshing New Content feed.
Email Digests: Notification spam no more! Notification digests are now available, receive emails only when is most convenient for you, set up your notifications settings via My Account > Notification Settings. Note: during the beta emails are disabled.
Follow your favourite content creators and get notified when they make new posts! Keep up with your favourite mod fixes and texture pack updates with ease. Visit My Account > My Subscriptions > Users to manage who you're following.
We would love to hear your feedback on the new forum during the beta phase! Like something? Tell us! Hate something? Tell us that too, so we can make it better! The new forum is all about you, and your opinion matters!
A notice for all of the Minecraft content authors out there. Yesterday we launched our new store! This is the first in a series of releases that will revamp the whole of CurseForge and all the sites powered by it. Through this we'll be modernizing the layout and style of the sites as well as addressing the long standing concerns many of our authors have had.
It's important to know that many actions related to points need to be completed from within the new store. Purchasing points, viewing your totals and history, as well as transferring points to other users. Project reward splits are still configured on the current site.
Above you'll see a nice screenshot of the general layout of the new store. We already have a list of improvements for the next iteration. You have my word that they'll be here soon, but please give us your feedback as well. We'd love to know what you guys think.
Long ago - before Minecraft Beta, Alpha, Infdev or even Indev - our favorite sandbox building game was still in its infancy, only just assuming the beginnings of Creative. In those days, there was no "official" place to talk about the game, and it still had a very small but growing following. It was then that citricsquid decided, on June 16th, 2009, to make a forum dedicated to the game. From the very first post to the present day, 1,000 days have passed - that's right, the Minecraft Forum and Minecraft Wiki are one thousand days old today! We are now a much larger community (with over a million registered users), and a larger staff than in those days - the forum has come a long way since then!
From these humble beginnings came one of the most active game forums in existence! Want to know more details about the people who keep this great forum going? Check out this link for more stats and info; you can also leave a comment on the site about what the forum means to you! Congratulations on 1,000 days - here's looking forward to 1,000 more!

Minecraftforum.net is currently in read only mode while our team perform essential software upgrades to improve site performance. During this maintenance period all posts will remain accessible, however you will be unable to use any account functions.
We have prepared a handy list of activities that should keep you busy until the forum returns:
In the near future, we may begin a weekly video segment exclusively for the Minecraft Forums! While we have some very exciting ideas about how we will approach this, one of the most important factors is you, the community - what do you want to see in a weekly segment? Now, you can make your voice heard!
In the poll above, please select any and all things you would like to see in a weekly segment - or, if what you would like isn't listed, post your suggestions below, and we will review them! We want this to be something you guys are excited to see every week, and to involve you as much as possible, so don't be afraid to say what you'd like - it's all about you!
