Hey Shirelings! We’re ๐Ÿฐ twelve years old ๐ŸŽ‰ next month, and we will be shortly announcing a few plans to celebrate.

With a map that’s never been reset since 15 October 2010, we are among the most historically significant Minecraft communities, and we’re pleased to have you here with us!

In other news, we’ve launched a #projects channel on Discord to trial their new forum feature. Channels like this might eventually replace the forum on our website, and we will find a new way of handling membership applications.

Want to share your thoughts on any of this? Please hit the discuss button below, or find the thread in our Discord announcements channel.

Have a great day!

Join us on Saturday 2 July at 1900 UTC to tackle the Ender Dragon on our survival server.

Please note that you need to have the Yeoman rank or above to enter the survival server.

Good luck!

Huge congratulations to our winners who should contact a staff member to negotiate their reward!

In other news... we are planning to upgrade the main server to 1.19 in the next week or so. We'll keep you informed!

The survival server reopens on 14 June 2022.

Join us at 17:30 UTC for the official opening 'ceremony'.

The survival server is open to the Yeoman rank and above.

New Minecraft content includes...

  • Mangrove Biomes

Looking forward to seeing everyone!

โš’๏ธย FINAL WEEK - "Vaults" Building Competition ๐Ÿ—

Ends on 5 June 2022, at 22:00 UTC.

We are hoping to be joined by a YouTube creator who will assist with the judging!

๐Ÿ•๏ธย SURVIVAL WORLD - 1.19 Update โ›๏ธย 

The Minecraft 1.19 update is coming next week, and we will update our survival server shortly after. This will include a reset of the survival world. If you have a project in Survival that you'd like to be saved, you can ask staff about moving it to the main world. If you want to keep it and we reject your request to move it to the main world, we will provide you with a schematic file for you to use as you wish.

๐Ÿ—จ๏ธย Rule Reminder โ—

Please be reminded that bad language shouldn't be used in our global chat in-game, and also should not be used outside of NSFW channels on Discord. We want The Shire to be as welcoming and inclusive as possible, so please follow our community rules.
