    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.

Ask below or find a staff member.Double jump & Glider in the lobby: <3 This glider plugin was made especially for PickAxis.

Voting for our server makes us more visible to those looking for a new MC home. Please help us rise in the lists to attract the MC-homeless. We can and will show them a loving home.

    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

    Hi everyone, I'm typically Untypical, or you can just call me Typi, or on the server I'm Untypical. I am both excited and super nervous, one of my friends said this is a really friendly site and server and I've never played Multiplayer Minecraft so I'm looking forward to it. I'm 23, I've only been playing minecraft for about a year now and I'm not super creative but I love trying to make redstone contraptions.

    Another Random Husker Post

    I don't really want to do a blog and doing the PickAxis Weekly Updates became so much work that we were spending more time on them than actually working on the servers...so I thought I'd post some random thoughts in this format, in a discussion with you guys on the forums. As you guys probably know, I can ramble, so I'll try to keep these as short as possible. If you have questions, post them below. I'll do my best to answer them. I also hope Nick doesn't kill me for sharing all my secrets *-=-* State of PickAxis *-=-* Right now I can't say enough about the player quality we have on PickAxis. Very rarely do we get trolls and when we do they quickly realize this isn't a place for them. I truly look forward to seeing each of you every night when I get on. We may not have hundreds of players yet, but the quality of our community is already awesome! One of my dreams is to have a higher player count. Why? So we can launch more servers and we need more players to make that possible. We have a lot of cool servers in the pipeline, but we don't want to just have 1-3 players on each one. We want to grow the community and that means having groups of people playing together, building memories, at the same time, on the same server. We've had some players bring some innovative approaches to get more players on and for what you guys have already done, I'm very grateful. For example, vertigolf hosts drop parties on Skyblock on an almost-monthly basis and that has brought in quite a few people. KingPoutine spends countless hours on Twitch trying to get (begging) big streamers to come play with us and bring their fans. These are very innovative ways to get more players in a time in Minecraft when growing your player count isn't necessarily the easiest thing to do. Many thanks to these guys for everything they've done and are yet to do! We are also reading great server and website suggestions on the forums each day. Keep these up! These are shaping PickAxis into something wonderful! TL;DR - Overall, PickAxis is on a great path of growth and I love you guys! *-=-* Summer & Seasons *-=-* Summer...yeah Summer! I know a lot of you will be out of school. If anyone wants to start a new series for YouTube, host some kind of event, or anything else that would be fun...just let us know. Summer is a time for trying out new things. *-=-* New Servers *-=-* We have a new server coming in about 2.5 weeks (if all goes to plan! - no promises*). We've been busy behind the scenes building and planning. If you've been around the forums lately, you'll easily be able to guess which server this is. This next server and the one following it both use the same custom plugin at their root. So, assuming we can start getting more players, we'll be able to release them both within the next couple months (no promises*). Who's excited? This girl. *-=-* Goals *-=-* I know, I know...it's dangerous to set goals publicly...because people can see you fail and ridicule you....so what! I'd rather be a person with goals than a person without. I also want to share my goals with you guys so you can understand my motivations in what we're doing. I don't want to fail, so I will do everything I can to keep failure out of the picture. Want to help me achieve these goals? Go ahead! Be my hero! <3 Alright, here goes: 1) I want to enter the summer (mid-June) with an average of at least 20 players on at most times of the day. 2) I want to end the summer (end of August) with an average of at least 100 players on at most times of the day. Crazy! I know! But let's do it! It's possible! 3) I want to have at least 3 positive surprises for the PickAxis community before the end of the summer (end of August). That's all I have to share at the moment. Please feel free to ask questions below. I want to keep this network a community network and that means being open and growing together. Thanks for being such an important part of my life, both digitally and IRL. - Husker * or else Nick will kill me for putting a date in here. NOTE: I spoke in 1st person for most of this, but I know Nick agrees with all the good points in this message....especially the ones where good grammar was used.

    I was recently replying to the forum "Count to 1.000.000 and back" when I saw a comment that looked like this: So I got curious and I decided to pull out my calculator and answer the question: How long will it take to get 1 million at the current rate of posting? Well, the forum was created on July 28, 2014, 182 days from today, January 25, 2015. We are at the number 344. 344 posts / 182 days = ~1.89 posts/day. We post ~1.89 numbers a day. Using this rate to calculate how long it would take to get to 1,000,000- 1,000,000 / 1.89 posts/day = 529,100.529 days 529,100 days / 365 days (1 year) = 1,449.589 years (not counting leap years) AND SO, IT'S GONNA TAKE AROUND 1,449 YEARS TO COUNT TO 1,000,000 AT OUR CURRENT RATE. YEAH. Expect to finish on Friday, March 13, 3463. (Friday the 13th ) How long will it take to reach 1,000,000 in one year? 60 seconds * 60 minutes = 3,600 seconds (1 hour) 3,600 seconds (1 hour) * 24 hours = 86,400 seconds (1 day) 86,400 seconds (1 day) * 365 days = 31,536,000 seconds (1 year) 31,536,000 seconds (1 year) / 1,000,000 (the number we need to get to) = 31.536 seconds So, it'll take a message posted every 31 and a half seconds to reach one million in one year. UPDATE [1/26/15]! So, today, a lot of numbers then the current rate were posted on the forum. I think I need to give updated info. The forum was created on July 28, 2014, and today is January 26, 2015, which is 183* days. We are at number 370. 370 posts / 183 days = ~2.02 posts/day SO: 1,000,000 posts / 2.02 post/day = 495,049.504 days Now, we need to subtract the days we have already used (which I didn't do last time) 495,049 days - 183 days = 494,866 days 494,866 days / 365 days (1 year) = 1355.797 years (not counting leap years) So one variable can throw off an entire calculation! Expect to finish around Tuesday, December 19, 3369

    Minecraft Summoners Rift

    For those of you who play League of Legends you know what Summoners Rift is. For those of you who don't it's basically the playing map for 5v5 matches. There are three main paths with towers for each team on each, in between the lanes is jungle with wolves and the like. I was thinking about how awesome it would be to make it in Minecraft! I found a few pictures of it already built in minecraft, but none of them to the caliber that I think we're capable of. I'll start building it hopefully sometime today, but because of school it may be longer than that. If anyone is interested in helping, great! Let me know! Here's what it looks like

    Hello, nice to meet'cha.

    So... Introductions... alright, well... Here we go: Hello. I'm ChewyPudding, but most minecraft people just call me Chewy. In the real world I go by Sam, so you could also call me that if you wish. I'm from Green Bay, Wisconsin, (Go Pack Go!) I'm 15 years old (Though I will be 16 come Friday, August 1st) and I'm kinda just a little bit of a huge nerd. I have a bit of a knack for language, so I'm can using english very much well and I'm learning 3 others. (German and Mandarin through school, Japanese independantly.) I'm also what most people would call a "band geek" but I'm cool, because I play the Bass. So you know, I can be heard for maybe a measure in a whole two songs. My geekyness doesn't end there though, I obviously play video-games (though not as much Minecraft as I did in years past) and I also sink way too much of money (Which I earn by working at a super fancy and super classy resturant, Little Caesars) into Magic: The Gathering, so if any of you play I'd be happy to spend a little time geeking out about it or to even just have a nice discussion. As you can probably guess, I'm not too sporty, but I do play a little bit of recreational soccer, and tournament sabre fencing.

    [Map preview] flower mountain

    Here is a preview of my newest map. It is a very large mountainous area of radius 250. I won't talk too much about it and just show some pictures. Larger pictures can be found at http://imgur.com/a/WEr7m Map overview, spawn is in the centre and shows the location of some key features. Spawn area with the small church Forest with giant tree. Temple ruins with the marsh on the right and the forest in the back Pillar Village with the marsh and river and spawn in the background. Mountainside and spawn. Small cave underneath the mountainside Waterside Riverside gate. Mountain gate with the forest behind it. Sorry for the large post but this is a small update on the new map.
