    Welcome to PickAxis!

    PickAxis is a brand new network of Minecraft servers and we are looking to do things the right way. With almost 10 years of combined server ownership experience, our goal is to provide a player-focused and fun gaming experience. At PickAxis, our players can expect a friendly and helpful community, supportive and involved staff, and an ever-evolving range of games and features to keep the Minecraft experience fresh and fun. With these experiences and ideals in mind, the concept for PickAxis was born. Our goal at PickAxis is to give you the Minecraft server you have always desired, yet haven't been able to find. PickAxis is where you can finally have it all: Strong community; Supportive staff; and a consistently entertaining Minecraft experience.

    First prison post!

    Don't worry, we're not going to take 6-7 months to get this up once we start working on it.

    Most people on Minecraft have their own little special skins they've made or found online that they like, but the thing about minecraft skins is that they're usually not all that detailed. I mean you can only put, what, 8x8 dots on the face? Lame. So, I guess why I'm here is: I want to help bring your Minecraft skin to life! I've already done a few (as you may have seen of BnJ and Husker's), but I've done some more to give you a better example of what I'm trying to say. I did Bill1993, Flawless_Method (aka. Waddles), and portalBlock, shown below. If you would like me to draw your skin, just comment I guess. I need your full Minecraft name, case sensitive, and a little description of what your skin is. If you'd like me to put a little artistic freedom into my drawings, then I'm more than likely going to be a little weird with my creativity. (: -Wrena

    Fan Art

    So I've been in a major art block lately, so I doodled this really quick. Hopefully they're be more of these to come!

    Hey, guys! I was wondering, since it's getting close to that time of year, if we could do a holiday build competition? I think doing it would be a ton of fun like the super hero/villain build. Like, it'd be a holiday theme, such as Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and Christmas. Would that be possible?

    Voting Contest

    HEY GUYS! Ender here. I have something that I feel needs to be said. So, while you are on the server, every now and then you see where players vote. If you don't already I would like you to as well. Voting comes with a lot of perks like things in /shop. In creative you can get things like world edit. On skyblock you can buy island warps and survival you can get things like /stack or /fly. These are all really cool things that are purchased with the tokens you earn from voting and you can get them too! At the beginning of every month the owners, Nick and Husker, post the top voters. If you are one of those people you can get coins to get things from /buy (pretty sure that's the command) with these you can purchase ranks that allow you to do special things like /back or own vaults that allow extra space. Along with that you get more tokens! Not only does voting benefit you, but it benefits the owners by moving us higher on the minecraft server lists. The higher we are, the more friends we have to join us who may purchase ranks of their own or vote. With this Nick and Husker can use the money they make to pay for not only the server but future additions such as , for say, Skygrid or Prison. To make PickAxis a better place, I want you guys to vote every day. Don't worry, I'll join too. All these things I mentioned, yall can have. Just vote daily for the amazing rewards. Bring your friends on to the server, remind them to vote. Tell people about PickAxis. Follow us on Twitter, create a forums account, participate in contests, help other players, and lastly be very active. Keep up to date with everything. Making PickAxis the best server it can be isn't just Nick, Husker, and the staff team's job. It's yours too, we need your help to do this, as a team. To make things even more fun I'm going to host a little game. If you bring friends on the server, tell them to tell me that (insert gamer tag here) invited you to PickAxis and I will give you a reward. Along with that, who ever votes the most in the months, January , February , March, April, and May, will receive a special present from myself on which ever sub-server you choose. How to get your present? I will mail you in the lobby, do /mail read to check. Thank yall! Happy voting! If you have any questions feel free to message me on Twitter, in game, pm on forums, or just simply post it here. If every one plays this game, I will continue to host it, even after May.

    Treasure Hunt

    Here's a fun game we're going to play You should be happy, the game starts today Your help is needed to find all my gold It's tokens and coins, the legend's foretold Read all the clues, you will see them below Only the wisest will be in the know Riddles will guide you to a treasure chest Submit your screenshot to prove you're the best If you are the first to post your success Riches and riches upon you, I'll bless But please go with caution, take this to heart You can win only once...plan and be smart The first clue I'll give will pop up today The second tomorrow, third on it's way Good luck to you all, please go find my loot And while you're at it, I'm missing a boot Treasure #1 Clues: FOUND! - More treasures coming soon Dear Diary, I've come to the conclusion that since my ex now lives over 4,000 miles away from me that I can start dating again. I don't know why he wanted to wait until he was 37 to get hitched. This time, my plan is flawless and EZ: I will only date men who are perfect 100's and over 24 years old. Love, Pirate Husker Captain's Log, Entry #Q Today I dropped off a treasure in a chest. Why did I do that? I don't know why. I could really have used all those tokens for fly. :'( If I hadn't fallen into that ravine and then become lost exploring deeper into the caves, I think I could have made it home with that loot. I'm pretty sure my boot is down there too. Dearest Diary, Some mornings I wake up in a bad, negative mood. Then, once I put my feet down on the floor and realize how lucky I am, I'm quickly brought back to a positive mood. Day after day it's the same: negative, feet, positive; negative, feet, positive. Good mantra for a treasured life. Love, Pirate Husker

    With great power comes great responsibility. Official Rules Builds may not contain offensive content. All builds must be something heroes or villains would conduct their super business in. What you build, i.e. castle, cave, underground lair, sky fortress, high-tech lab, etc., is up to you. Your build should illustrate your side, good or evil. Please leave a sign explicitly stating your intended side, good or evil. All builds, to be considered as an official entry, must be marked completed using the command /plot done. Any builds not identified as such by the close of the contest on November 30 at 11:59 PM EST, will not be judged as an entry. Criteria for judging, based on a 10 point scale, are as follows: Creativity, Originality, Hideout Theme, and Design. Point totals will not be made public. Have fun! Tips for Entries To get started and find your plot, perform the command /plot auto. If your entry requires elements not set as the default environment in the contest world, instructions should be placed on a sign at the border of your entry plot, facing towards the path. Elements can include a day/night element or weather. Any questions on other possible element capabilities should be messaged to helios8385 here on the forums. If there is a component of interaction involved with your entry, this must be EXPLICITLY and OBVIOUSLY noted on your contest plot. A sign along the outside edge of the plot, facing outwards towards the path will suffice. All features of a creative server are enabled, including WorldEdit, redstone functionality, and gravel/sand block physics. Any questions on how to use WorldEdit should be searched. Please don't bother the staff about your build.

    3 Reasons to Vote

    #1 - you get tokens, and what do tokens make.... cool things! You can get 50 tokens each day which can be spent on survival skyblock, skywars for cool perks. Just do /shop and see what you can save up for.... So you have purchased all of the perks over all servers? #2 - the top 3 voters each month get a cash reward to spend on the server to buy ranks. What? So you have obsidian rank across all of the servers? You have everything you could possibly need and the tokens are just building up? #3 Keep voting to support this awesome server. A lot of blood sweat and tears go into making this server as great as it is and we all want to make it bigger and better. Voting pushes us up the ranks and the higher we get the more players we can get. Pickaxes is nothing without all you amazing players. We love each and everyone of you and we hope you love us back! Click here and show us your love.

    That's right! PickAxis is finally in beta! What does that mean for you? There are some fun new features that we're excited to tell you about as part of our beta launch, and we'll have more to announce over the next few weeks. Voting We are listed on 5 server list websites. Please vote for PickAxis on each of them every 24 hours. When you vote, it will bring PickAxis up in the rankings and bring more players to the server. As a thank you from us, you'll be rewarded with 10 tokens each time you vote. Tokens Each day you can get 50 tokens for voting (10 tokens x 5 sites). On each server you can access the token shop by using the /shop command. You can buy some awesome perks with your tokens, like fly in Survival and SkyBlock, and extra plots in creative. The coolest part of tokens is that you can earn almost everything that's available in our real-money store. Stay on the lookout because we'll be hosting events and mini-games where you can earn more tokens each day. What else? We've been working tirelessly to add some really cool things to make the future of PickAxis epic. We've also fixed various bugs and cleaned up some things on our journey from alpha to beta. On top of that, we will be adding the ability to purchase paid packages from our store shortly, in case saving up tokens isn't your thing or if you're simply feeling generous. It's now time to start inviting all your friends to come play with you on PickAxis! Please be welcoming and helpful to any new players you see. They will look to you for advice. Keep an eye out for more new features coming soon! We look forward to seeing you in-game!

    Get Banned (Game)

    I found NickG365's hideout room in the lobby and told everyone where it was. I don't know why I did it. It's one of those things you just do when you find a treasure. I announced my find to everyone on Teamspeak. Little did I know that Nick was also in the Teamspeak channel. Oops! "What do I do?" I thought to myself. I left the Teamspeak channel and went to the lobby to apologize over private messages to him. Upon seeing me approach his hideout, Nick got mad and slammed his wooden door in my face. Surely he knew I was just there to apologize, but he wanted none of it. At this point, a lot of people had already congregated around his hidden room and some had even entered and started poking at his stuff. Nick became irate when some unknown n00b knocked his mixer to the ground and all the knobs slid out of place. His face turned red and he started physically shoving people out. I hid behind the door, because I was afraid he'd turn green, rip his shirt off, and then rip me to shreds at this point. Sadly, Nick had no resource pack on or I may have been able to hide more effectively while crouching, but because he was using the default pack he saw me right through the wooden door window. He sprinted over to the door, slammed it closed and he started fuming like a steam engine on a train. Bubbles started coming out of his mouth and one also came out of his nose. I had to work hard not to laugh but my overwhelming desire to giggle was overshadowed by the sweat dripping off my cheek. I stood up straight against the wall where the door once partially hid me from this raging bull. I had no idea what to do at this moment and in fear, my trembling fingers took control over my keyboard. "/kick N" was what they typed and my pinky lightly hit "Enter". That was all that Nick needed to fuel his anger even more. Within seconds I found myself refreshing my server page on Minecraft hoping it wasn't true. I had been banned by NickG365.

    Hey all, I just wanted to run through a recent rule change and some reminders for you all. As some of you may be aware we have updated the rules with regards to players being AFK on survival. The rule (number 1) now states the following "Do not AFK for extended periods of time, or near anything that could negatively impact other player's experience" This means you will be kicked if you afk for long periods of time, especially at automatic farms. Extended periods of time is generally 30-45 mins or longer. All staff can check your last known movements and will try to communicate with you before kicking you. One thing we have noticed recently is the amount of players making long strip mines in the normal world. Please refrain from doing this as we do not want the whole world chopping up. The mining world is a great place for resources, and is reset monthly, so please use it for your resource gathering. Can I please ask players to stop begging or demanding other players and staff for items, death points or certain locations. It is not a staff members job to find your stuff after death or finding places you have lost. I will help players where I can but I will only do so when shown respect from the player, not when I am told I have to. Every item on Minecraft is replaceable. Remember your manners! Finally, please refrain from "fake" auctions. continuously putting an auction up when you intend on cancelling it is a little unfair, especially on newer or players with little money. Thank you for your continued support on the Pickaxis server and your understanding on these matters, I welcome any suggestions and feedback on this Have a great day Clare

    life and live streaming

    I'm 30, male, married, all around gamer, and work in a warehouse. Also I live stream and plan to live stream this server. Funny thing is this server was recommended to me from someone on another server after we got to talking for awhile. I explained that I can't seem to find a server that has this and that and the person pointed me to here. So I hopped on and was shocked to see a survival server that actually challenges you to survive! I'm not angry about it but I did facepalm at the fact that so many "survival" servers didn't have mobs, what was I suppose to survive? Boredom? Anyways That's the extent of my intro.

    Come one and all! As many of you will already know, we decided to finally open our own store this week. After our initial success, we secured enough funding for an expansion and as such we would like to welcome you all to our new and improved Emporium of Awesomeness located at /is warp ZTolerance. The L.E.A. houses a variety of goods and services to suit the vast needs and tastes of all. If you cannot find what you are looking for then let us know and we will try to rectify it! We are currently holding eight attempted thieves who are now being forced into servitude to look after special trades for each and every one of you, the only rule is you do not hurt them as the humiliation of being here is enough punishment! So come on down to the Little Emporium of Awesomeness Enjoy

    Welcome to Pickaxis

    To current and hopeful new players, I've known several of the Admin, Owner and Players that play here at Pickaxis ( I knew them from another site ) and they truly are good, down to earth, friendly players. I've only played on Pickaxis for less than a week and I have to say these guys and gals are great people. I've seen some of the Skyblock Islands for the other players and I have seen some AMAZING builds. Some creations I had no idea were even possible on Skyblock but sure enough they've done it. This skyblock is a little different than other skyblock sites I've played on. It's a challenge for sure and if you choose to play and maybe donate I think you will come to appreciate the challenge that is offered here. It's taken me a few days to get up and running but I'm well on my way to greatness. (hahahha) So great job and a High Five to Huskergirl and the Admin staff for putting together a wonderful experience. Enjoy and good luck out there building and mining and creating.

Log in any time between now and the end of the day on the 27th and you'll get a nice pile of tokens as our gift to you for the holidays! -- Husker, Nick, and the PickAxis Staff Team
