    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

    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.

    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.

    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

    Community farms..

    Hey guys, As many of you know I, in the past, have made enderman farms in the end after the monthly reset. I just wondered how everyone feels about this, how much they were used and if it is work carrying on doing. So I have a couple of questions: Did you like that we had a community farm? Did you use the farm? Would you like me to build another enderman farm when the end resets? Would you like to build a community farm? (enderman, blaze, wither, gold) I'm interested to hear your feedback Thanks 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.

    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! Click here to view the announcement

    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.

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.

    Husk Husk Husk!

    I'm posting here because I'm avoiding doing actual work while at work. I'm one of the owners around here and you can usually find me trolling people or TWERKING! Here are some of my things/links/etc. Yes, these links are clickable! ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- YouTube Twitter Twitch Instagram ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm a nub, but I've been playing Minecraft since 2010. I'm addicted to the sound of the crunching pixels under my pixel feet. I stream on Twitch a few times each week. I'm dating James Marsden (yeah, this one!) You don't need proof. We work hard to keep our personal relationship off the grid. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- FAQ Are you really 32 years old? Are you really asking a woman to verify her age? Why are you even wondering anyway? And, yes I was born in the same year the movie E.T. came out (1982). How long have you been playing Minecraft? I've played since 2010 when Notch called me on the phone and was like "Hey bby, I gots a new game 4 u 2 try." How long have you been playing on PickAxis? I started playing on PickAxis from Day 1! Do you really need glasses or are you trying hard to look nerdy, cause bby I just wanna dose eyez. I need some kind of vision correction. When I play Minecraft I stare too hard at the screen and my contacts dry out. I much prefer to wear my glasses when Minecrafting. Are you single? Hell yeah! Can we go on a date? / Can I be your boyfriend? Are you 18+? Yes, pls. Can I stream with you? / Can I be in a YouTube video with you? Sure!
