  • Happy 12th Birthday to The Shire

    Twelve today!

    Thanks everybody for supporting one of Minecraft's oldest communities. We've never reset our immersive main world, with almost 20k unique players joining, and of those, just under 2000 have built something.

    Upcoming Events

    Upside-Down Building Competition: Build a Stranger Things upside-down version of something from our main world. Show some originality in your approach, while letting the original style seep through. Start date to be announced!

    Halloween Treasure Hunt: Find treats hidden in the main world to win cosmetic prizes! Starts 27 Oct, ends 4 Nov.

    Shire Renewal Project: Fix up abandoned projects in their original style. We will soon announce a list of projects in this scheme, along with more information!

    2022 Census: Where are you all from? What is the most popular age range? Who has a pet Husky?! Our last census was in 2015, so it's probably time to ask these questions once more! More information coming soon!

    Thanks for reading, and enjoy the rest of your day!

  • 12th Birthday, Events and Projects

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

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

    In other news, weโ€™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!
