MCAU is one of the top Minecraft servers in Australia. With more than five years of continuous running, it has become the top destination for Australian Minecrafters.

We run a Survival world, Event world, and an exclusive Creative world for donors, plus more! Grief protection will be available to all players to use on Survival.

Our staff team work hard to ensure that your Minecraft experience will be fun and grief-free. If you have been banned and wish to complain, please do so on the Ban Appeals forum rather than by commenting here.

vBulletin is dead, long live Discourse.

For those that haven’t been following the nerd news (and, that’s fine, that’s my job!), vBulletin – our forum software – has been having ongoing security problem after security problem.

I finally bit the bullet today and migrated everything to Discourse. Discourse is about the best forum software you can find at the moment, and it’s amazingly good.

Our forums have stagnated a bit recently, because vBulletin sucked so badly – I hope you enjoy Discourse a bit more!

The only downside is that you’ll need to do a password reset to generate a new password, as It’s impossible to import passwords, so it’ll need to be reset. Sorry!

Introducing ArtMap

Update: Plugin access is now open to Donors and [1]Users

Since you’ve all been such cool cats, we’ve made a new plugin for you all to enjoy! ArtMap  gives you the ability to paint directly onto a minecraft map using dyes. Currently only Donors and [2]Users will be able to paint, but this will be expanded as soon as we finish beta testing. We will be displaying any particularly awesome artworks that we see at the new /warp gallery.

For information on how to get started, head over to the ArtMap Wiki.


P.S. If you paint anything naughty, you will have your ArtMap privileges permanently revoked. Staff decide if an artwork is inappropriate, so be sensible.
