This survival server will be 1 year old in October. The server is completely 100% survival and trophies are still active. Spawn is considered The Village of David because the server was founded off of a seed suggested by a close friend that has passed away. A total of 40 players have been on the server since the beginning. The server has 4 to 6 open spots currently due to a lack of players participating. We are looking for MATURE/EXPERIENCED players. Age is not really a factor, but if you are not almost 18 your experience must make up for it. We look for creativity, craftsmanship, and willingness to participate with our community.
Features of the Server
Most structures surround spawn and players have expanded out within 1 map surrounding map #0. 2 mesas are located within 200 blocks of spawn. The end is about 500 blocks away from spawn and is marked off by an unfinished mayan temple. The server has mostly any community farms you can think of besides a cow farm and enderman farm. The cow farm is very unreliable due to many players spawning too many animals at a time. It is easiest to take a looting sword on the outskirts of spawn and kill animals. We reset the end alot in order to get more xp from the dragon and loot from the end city. It is very easy to collect enough ender pearls yourself so don't question our decision! We have a nether hub that connects to main features and players bases if permitted. There is also a railway that was under construction, but we may just use the nether hub because it is much faster. There is a second village established called "Cornerland." It is in the far right corner of the map, hence the name. So far 0 players have made a home around this location.
Also, we have started doing raffles where your name will be put in a hat for every stack of regular wood (Not planks) or every 4 stacks of either sand or gravel. Raffle end days will be announced and a live stream will be made during the raffle. Raffle items range from maxed out diamond armour to random supplies or materials.
Later, competitions and certain activities will take place
Here is a full list of farms on the server:

Here is a list of businesses run by players. Players trade for certain items or materials in return for what is being sold:
Tool/Weapon/Armor Smith- Can make anything you need with any enchantments on them. Variations cost differently. Most can be made within 30 minutes or less.
Wool Shop-currently not in business, but is more of a community farm.
Wood Shop-currently out of business, but is online from time to time.
Wither Skull/Beacon Smith
Here is a list of updated rules or features along with extended info.
Do not ask players for items. This is a community based server. There are community farms for you to use. Anything else must be traded for unless a player gives you a gift. You get a care package with an elytra and other items if you stay on the server for a few days.
DO NOT TRAVEL TO THE WORLDS EDGE. Please stay within 1000 blocks in ALL directions. We plan to keep area outside of 1000 blocks for future updates. Yes we are aware that Mojang said there may not be more updates, but we are planning for it. Only specific locations are outside of 1000 blocks and you need certification to do so! Please respect this rule or you will be banned (like others that were a threat to the server). We have a group chat for the server and we encourage everyone to stay in the chat for the latest server news, updates, and issues. If spamming of the chat becomes too much you may mute notifications, but are still expected to be with all of us in case we need to contact you. If you need to ask a player a question it is best to contact them directly rather than asking in the group chat if it only invlovles 1 player. If you do not participate with our community at all (Basically Playing on Your Own) then there is a chance of being kicked off the server. We like to communicate with everyone. That doesn't mean we have to always talk (or on mic at all), but this is a community based server. Please respect all players ideas, opinions, all current builds, and other people's chests. If it's not yours, don't touch it! There is a memorial for a player that passed away that definitely should not be tampered with. Many players have areas layed out around spawn where current and future projects are taking place. Make sure you ask myself MusicMan234 before taking a claim. Players usually have signs on posts indicating claimed area. First come first serve. This also means to not build paths to spawn without permission due to already claimed area. Recently we have had to reset our nether hub and we are not allowing people to dig in the nether unless permitted in a certain area (For Spawner Reasons.) If you would like a portal at your base, one of our players will sync one up to the nether for you. Please do not make your own! Lastly, we like to make things look as nice as possible.
Please ask anyone if you need help or guidance! Admin is MusicMan234. Moderators are HOG and Skullz. These are the top 3 players to contact for all server issues. Please contact one of us if you feel someone is infringing the rules!

EXPERIENCE: I have been playing Minecraft for about 4 years. I have a full understanding of the game and it's features. I have hosted a few survival servers of my own and hosted mini games. I am proficient in building with design and detail. I have built many different Redstone contraptions, but it is not my strength.
LIST OF BUILDS: Some of the things I have built are - A rail station that uses Redstone to chose a different location. Hidden staircases. A few castles. Creeper spawner made inside of a large scale detailed creeper.<!--Clip_XXXX_170911_122325_419-->

Minecraft experience: 5 years
Why you want to join: I would like to play on a survival multiplayer server with skilled players and a sense of community.

Age: 16 (17 in 3 months)

Minecraft experience: 4 years. Started on PC then moved to XB360, took a break for a year, came back last week.
Why you want to join: I've only recently started to begin to play MC again, and I want to get back the old memories I had when I used to play with friends. It was some of the most fun I as gaming and I guess I'm searching for new people who simply want to create and have fun.
Why do you think YOU should be invited: I believe I should be invited for the fact that I am mature, experienced, and (Humble bragging) likeable. I am very kind and love to work with players as well as get stuff done. Guess my biggest negative is that I am a perfectionist.
I appreciate you taking the time time to read my application. Thanks.
Minecraft experience: Been playing since the indev days, so that's like what, 8 years I think?
Why you want to join: Recently got Minecraft on PS4 and just looking for some fellow adults to go in on some projects with and chat with while I'm working on my own.
Why do you think YOU should be invited: A large part of my interest in Minecraft is due to redstone and love figuring out creative solutions to problems presented by it's particular limitations. Also, IRL I dabble (maybe a bit more than dabble) in coding and have a huge interest in programming and electronics which I think gives me a broader knowledge of how to approach and solve a problem in game. Also, I just love building ****.
Hope to hear back!
(PS I have a mic and prefer to use it to communicate while playing)
(NOTE: If you do not fill out an application you will not be considered to be invited whatsoever. If you do not talk with the group and/or build ONLY underground then you will be banned from the server. We run a community and we all communicate with one another. We also want the server looking nice and we would appreciate builds above ground so that server space and lag isn't wasted on things we can not see!)[/b]
[b]Village of David[/b]
EDIT: The server is slowly growing in size. Everything around spawn has been claimed to the Village of David. Players have spread out and are forming their own communities. No more than a few people play at one time so there are definitely spots open for new players! New pictures are in the updated thread. Not enough picture slots to show everything on the server. There are some unfinished builds due to large projects. Players that are interested in helping other players build are also welcome. There are apartments for rent if a player does not want to build their own base as well. The game is NEVER on auto save in case something drastic happens. Mini games and contests are coming soon to the server. [/b]

Name (IGN/GT): edmtactical20
Location (timezone): EST Florida
Minecraft experience: 4 1/2-5 years
Why you want to join: I've been looking for a well-balanced group of individuals who enjoy Minecraft whole heartedly, with a creative mindset and good knowledge about the game. I have a few friends who play but it's either dirt houses in survival or big penis towers in creative. I want more than that lol
Why do you think YOU should be invited: I feel I missed the Minecraft train by a couple years when it was first released. It blew up so I stayed away from it. Then one day finally caved and started playing. I feel my skills are exceptional, my built types are usually small and quaint with good detail mixed in in high quantity. My Redstone skill I believe is high intermediate. I love to build doors, elevators, contraptions and HP farms. As someone who once was a reformed Minecraft player I think I'd be a great fit for the server
Why do you want to join: Always Enjoyed playing Minecraft, but finding a good community is always a goal of mine and to find a good group to play Minecraft with is always great and enjoyable for a long period.
Why do you think you should be invited: As stated above, I've been playing for 5ish years now, and I have a good deal of skill, was a Builder rank on a Server on PC awhile back before it shut down, and I feel as I could help make this server a better place.

Why do you think YOU should be invited: I want to learn more from other people and interact with other players and not just some NPCs
Hey guys just got most of your applications today. I will respond to them today!
We have a group chat for the server and we encourage everyone to stay in the chat for the latest server news, updates, and issues. If you do not participate with our community at all (Basically Playing on Your Own) then there is a chance of being kicked off the server. We like to communicate with everyone. That doesn't mean we have to always talk, but this is a community based server. Please respect all current builds and other people's chests. There is a memorial for a player that passed away that definitely should not be tampered with. If you are in question of something Please Ask! Many players have areas layed out around spawn where current and future projects are taking place. Make sure you ask myself before taking a claim. Players usually have signs on posts indicating claimed area. First come first serve. DO NOT TRAVEL TO THE WORLDS EDGE. We are trying to preserve the outter map edge chunks for updates. Many builds are under construction so you will probably notice them. There are many community builds that are listed in my forum post.
Also, we have started doing raffles where your name will be put in a hat for every stack of regular wood (Not planks) or every 4 stacks of either sand or gravel. Raffle end days will be announced and a live stream will be made during the raffle. Raffle items range from maxed out diamond armour to random supplies or materials.<!--Clip_XXXX_170601_091333_076-->

Name (IGN/GT): kiD_Skillz01
Location (timezone): Mountain Time, UTC-07:00
Minecraft experience: 5 years, I've played on and have been a trusted mod on many servers
Why you want to join: I don't really like playing alone on my worlds so I like joining servers so I can talk to/play with other people.
Why do you think YOU should be invited: I would really really help out around the community, Im super active and friendly. Im very mature despite my IGN lol, I made it when I was younger. I really hope you consider me thank you for your time. !
Minecraft Experience: 6 years, played on numerous servers on both pc and console
Why do you want to join: I would like to play on a server made up of serious players that I can build with and learn from.
Why do you think you should be invited: I think I can bring some interesting ideas and I can help others out with whatever they may need. I would like to add as much as I can to this server to improve it in any way possible.
Minecraft experience: I've been crafting since Beta on the PC! haha seriously though, I started minecraft back in 1.7.3 beta before the adventure update, and since then it has been a roller coaster of fun. After finding a group of friends on a server which i became an admin on over time, I played up until recent times and my friends weaned off into league and ditched Minecraft.
Why you want to join: Well ever since my experiences of social minecraft ended, it has never been the same game to me. I can't just load up a file by myself anymore, or go on pc servers to just not find people who are like me and play for the same reasons. From what ive read here, though, it seems like the forum users and the server owner of this particular server are all in the game for the same reason as me. I had no idea that ps4 minecraft had a community like like this, and i would really love to embark in a journey with some minecraft buddies again.
Why do you think YOU should be invited: Not only do I have some heavy experience in PC Minecraft (former server mod/admin/owner, former community build contributor to my old local minecraft server, just to name a couple of things that matter) but I'm 100% against griefing and game abuse. I could definitely be trusted in any event with host or creative powers, and my builds are always simple and good looking. Also I'm really nice and i make good jokes sometimes if i use my mic!
I hope you consider adding me to participate in your cool 24/7 world, I will not disappoint anybody I promise
Why you want to join: I've been soloing for quite some time now, & it'd be great to join in with a group of folks for some serious building!
I'd like to build a shop to sell stuff. Like building materials and whatnot. Creating a local economy would be the end game I suppose, but just creating with cool people will likely take up most of my time.
Why do you think YOU should be invited: Oh, well.. there are probably better creators out there, so I won't go as far as saying I SHOULD be invited.. but I like to help out if I can, & I try to get better.. so I'd like to think that I'd be a good choice.
