What is Minedlands?
Minedlands is a simple, friendly, community oriented vanilla server. Many servers claim to be vanilla or have that 'vanilla feel', but every time I thought I find one of these servers, my hopes were crushed as I became bombarded by colored text, huge buildings, and walls filled with rules. Minedlands was inspired to be the kind of server that truly embodied the real vanilla experience. Minedlands uses Bukkit combined with only the most non-invasive plugins to help protect you from hackers and griefers. You can rest easy knowing that Minedlands does not and will not ever support unnecesary, flashy, or game changing plugins.
Why Choose Minedlands Over Other Vanilla Servers?
Most other vanilla servers are either whitelisted or are actually plugin-filled bukkit servers. Whitelisted servers can be tedious and require you to fill out an application and then wait for approval. And the problem with most bukkit 'vanilla' servers is that, while the owner may have had the intention of creating a vanilla feel, they end up getting carried away with too many plugins, eventually becoming it's just another bukkit server.
Although Minedlands is a bukkit server, it only uses a few simple plugins to the sake of moderation and anti-grief protection. These plugins allow the server to be open without the need for a whitelist.
Everyone Helps Keep The Server Looking Nice:
Although griefing is against the rules, it is encouraged that players help clean up broken down, or abandoned buildings. You can do this by removing the offending structure and returning the ground to it's natural landscape. If the job is too big or you need administrative help, send us an e-mail with the coordinates and a small description of the problem and we will be happy to help.
Replant and respawn! Please try to replant trees as well as let some of your livestock back into the wild from time to time so there are always enough resources for new players. By giving back to the game environment you can help foster a better community of new players who can enjoy the server as much as you did when you first arrived.
