Hey, everybody!

Earlier today Mojang released 1.12.2, I'm just writing this post to let you guys know that we've updated our network to support this new update. If you did not know you can connect on any version between 1.7 and 1.12.2.

Thanks,
Dylan.
Hey everybody,

Due to the recent network issues that occurred, Prison and Factions are having more severe issues, @chckn and I are working on a fix so please be patient.

Skyblock appears to be fine though.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Thanks,
Dylan.

EDIT: Prison has been fixed but the Factions world was unfortunately corrupted, this means the world will be rolled back a few hours to our most recent backup. Things like inventories and balances should not be affected. Again, sorry about this.
Hey everybody,

We're currently experiencing some network issues, we're working as fast as we can to fix it.
Sorry for the inconvenience.

Thanks,
Dylan.

EDIT: The network issues have been resolved, everything should be as it was.
-Staff Applications-
Hello! How are you all doing?

So, as you’ve probably noticed, sadly Qzs has resigned from his position as Manager. @Triplenox and I will be doing our best to make sure everything continues to the standard at which he held it.

This is going to be an announcement with some news regarding the staff team & applications. Our network promises staff online, helping players, and moderating chat at all times and in all timezones, but we can’t have that without your help. For this to happen, we need to have a full staff team.

We’d love to see some new applicants for Helper, especially from European & Australian timezones (others are welcome as well though). Before applying, make sure to thoroughly read this guide on how to write an acceptable application along with the requirements. Make sure to include lots of detail in your application about your strengths and how you could benefit the team.

@Dylan Keir has kindly added a line of clarification in one of the staff application questions as well: when asked for online time, it’s now explained that you should include which hours of the day you can be online for. We’re looking for staff able to fill mid-day times (GMT). If you meet the requirements and would like to help staff on CC, feel free to apply!

Best of luck to any and all applicants!

Kindest Regards,
- Evergreen
Hi all,

I've got a quick post for you guys (and it's regarding top voter rewards). Starting from this month, the top 3 voters at the end of the month (on the last day). You can view the top voter rewards on the vote page over here.

For reference, the top voter rewards this month are:
  1. $50 Voucher
  2. $40 Voucher
  3. $30 Voucher
You will be mailed a code in-game on the last day if you are in the top #3. Any ties will not have the coupon code split.

Thanks,
Matt
Hello everyone,

I've got good and bad news for you all today. Let's get the bad news out of the way first... we're sad to announce that starting from today, ALL legacy servers will be removed from CandyCraft.

The reason for this is simple: they don't do very well and were originally implemented to help people move over to CandyCraft as a whole. We want to focus on our core gamemodes (Prison, Factions, Skyblock, Creative) and make them the best they can be (this is the good news, if you didn't already know)!

Legacy servers used up valuable resources that we could allocate elsewhere (for advertising and expanding our gamemodes) which is the main reason for legacy servers being removed (we're sorry!). We hope that too many of you aren't devastated by this news and we promise that we'll be bringing out regular content updates to our core game modes.

Until next time,
Matt

As you may have seen, we've got a completely new look! We've changed the way CandyCraft's artwork appears as we felt the old one didn't represent what the server actually is. Now I know this might not suit some of you guys, but I stand by my point of it representing what CandyCraft is! (A kid-friendly network with an unbeatable candy theme and unparalleled features).

The following sections of our brand have been updated:
  • Logo
  • Background
  • Portal Icons (releasing soon)
We've also got some super special logos that'll be added during holiday periods such as:
  • Christmas
  • Halloween
Throughout these holiday periods, special effects will be added to the store and forums along with lots of special in-game updates (more to follow on this!).

Server Advertising

We've recently secured a sponsored slot on one of the most popular Minecraft server list websites which is visited by millions of players (just like you!) every month.

This slot will see us increase our player base. There will be new faces so I ask everyone to be kind with every new player and help them out as much as possible (even send them a bit of money on Prison if you're feeling kind).

I have a feeling this slot will do very well for the server and enable us to keep pushing out awesome updates to an ever-growing community (you guys are awesome, btw!).

Many thanks,
Matt
Hello all,

Today I've got some very exciting things to share! As the server continues to grow we're making a HUGE announcement. Our team has been working very hard on Prison and we're now at a point where we're gearing up for a super feature packed release. The current date set for Prison release is:

25th August 2017 at 5PM EST*

*
The current time for the release is an estimate and is not confirmed. We will confirm this towards the end of the week.

On another note, we also have two active giveaways running:
Finally, we have some exciting updates coming in the following months. The creative and factions servers will be given some much needed love (after Prison has released) and we will start bringing out some much needed updates to these servers - there will be another post regarding this close to the time. If you have any suggestions, please leave them on the forums and I'll check them asap!

Many thanks,
Matt
Hi all,

After 24 hours, I've pushed out quite a few updates in association with our excellent developer @Dylan Keir. These can be found below:
  • Added /vote back to skyblock. Factions and other servers will receive vote rewards by the weekend.
  • Added vote party on skyblock. This is a party that's activated when 200 votes have been reached, you will receive a crate and have a chance to win items such as crate keys, blocks and money too!
  • Added a new store theme.
  • Added a new forum theme.
  • Added post reactions to the forums (you can like, dislike, agree and more on forum posts!).
  • Added a new twitter account (@CandyCraftMC_) - there is an active giveaway so make sure you check our Twitter out!
  • Updated the existing portal to make it cleaner.
  • Moved SkySell to SkyBlock > Misc Items.
There's still lots to do so please be rest assured I'm not done (including the long awaited release of Prison). I'm here to get CandyCraft back to it's glorious position and I'll be doing exactly that.

Q&A
This is your chance to ask me anything! If you would like to know something about the future of CandyCraft, what we plan on doing (without telling too many secrets) I'll be delighted to let you know. I will respond to all questions posted below so get asking!

Many thanks,
Matt
Hello all!

I'm Matt (known in-game as Triplenox). I have a feeling I'll be asked a million times who I am and exactly what I'm doing at CandyCraft. I've been drafted in to make CandyCraft as awesome as it can be by the (somewhat) wonderful @Serayne92.

My official role is Community Manager. I'll be helping the community expand, ensuring the server receives the much-needed updates and more! Alongside this, I will also be working on a revamped version of the website (including statistics, store, forums & more) in the coming months.

Tomorrow there will be a huge change - the store, portal and forums will all receive a temporary revamp! They will look completely different to how they do currently (I know, change is scary!) but it's for the best - we want to give you guys the best experience possible.

Here's a few questions I can imagine I will get asked, so I'll answer them before you can smash your keyboard to bits typing them out:

Q: How old are you?
A: I'm 18, recently turned 18 in January.

Q: Have you worked on servers before?
A: Yes, I've owned smaller servers and worked with some larger servers a few years ago but nothing too recent!

Q: Where are you from?
A: I live in Cheshire, a county (equivalent to a state in America) in Britain.

If you want, you can follow me on Twitter (I rarely post though): @Triplenox

If you have any questions, concerns or otherwise feel free to message me. I hope to see much more of everyone on here, have a great day!
