Elkia [Vanilla][SMP]{Whitelist}{1.12.1}{Custom Terrain}{Mature}{Community}{Discord}

Hey there! We’re glad you’re considering the Elkia community! Let’s get the obvious things out of the way

General information


Server Location: Eastern USA

Server Address: my.elkia.life

Website: https://elkia.life (currently under constructions, leaving it here for future reference)

Version: 1.12.1

Difficulty: Hard

Staff: Cerx (the boss), Anubis, Brockle, Caoimhin, and Tommin

Admins do have the definitive say, however we value the community wishes and decisions and believe in a democratic system for any changes that need to be made.

About us


We’re well-estabilished community of dedicated players with over a year of history. Our idea of a server is a Mindcrack/Hermitcraft-esque group – a small and friendly active community.

Elkia players are very diverse – from countries all around the world. There’s amazing builders, technical people skilled with redstone and commandblocks or just causuals who enjoy playing. The age averages somewhere around 17, however it does not matter to us as long as you’re mature. We’ve got older players as well as the younger ones.

Our current world began on April 7th, 2017 and uses custom terrain generation which makes our world quite unique. While there may be plenty of untouched land, if you’re looking for a fresh server we might not be the best fit for you.

There’s also some command-block magic behind the scenes to enhance your experience:

  • The Ender Dragon drops Elytra upon death
  • Your player head drops upon PvP death
  • Shulker always drops at least one Shulker shell
  • Loot-tables for more mob heads!
  • A growing collection of our own custom advancements
  • Endermans don’t pick up blocks
  • Only one player is required to sleep to skip the night
  • AFK players will display grayed out in the tab menu

Community events


Even tho we’re rather small community, we try our best to bond everyone together and have fun!

Weekly meetups

Each friday at 8PM GMT (just Google that to convert it to your local timezone) we will meet in one of our Discord voice channels and proceed to do some community activities. It might be just playing some minigames at Hypixel together, working on new and fancy epic build or most likely just derping around. Theese meetups are about having fun and bonding relationships with other members.

Penguin saturday

What a silly name! – you might say. But don’t be mistaken! Penguin stands for thrill and competition within the Elkia community (and beyond)! Every odd saturday at 8PM GMT there’s an UHC (ever seen hunger games? Its kinda like that.) competition to find out who’s the ruler! Depending on number of participants, we will eithier play in teams or settle on free for all. Sometimes, sneaky admins might spice things up and implement different sets of rules – no match is the same!

Important things to take into account


General rules

We believe in our community so theres not a strong ruleset. It’s mostly just common sense. Unfortunately sometimes admins need to get involved. To avoid any issues, please obey the rules listed bellow.

Be nice and mature.

Try to make new friends! Hate speech is not tolerated – swearing is fine, just don’t roleplay Eminem

Absolutely no griefing, stealing or cheating.

Intentionally causing harm to other players is not the way we roll. Any form of hacking (xray, flying or whatever) will get you banned without any questions asked or previous notice. Duping items is allowed only in specific occasions and you need to get permission from the community! (generally speaking – dragon eggs and gravity blocks are fine with us, on the other hand diamonds, shulker boxes and basically all of the late-game stuff is prohibited)

Killing players without their permission is not allowed.

This includes both PvP and traps as well. All items a player might lose upon death due to your actions must be returned.

We encourage pranking!

So don’t get mad when you become a taget of someone’s evil doing. When pranking someone, just don’t go over the top and offer help with cleaning up.

So you’re streaming/recording?

Thats amazing! No need to ask for a permission, we love and strongly encourage sharing any piece of history Elkia might have to offer! (unfortunately not many of us do so) Just make sure to clarify you’re live when you’re in a voice chat with someone.

Activity

We’re looking for dedicated players whom still enjoy playing even after they finished building their first house. Most of us are very passionate and we always have some new thing to play with or old project to polish. Members who don’t play on the server for longer than 14 days will be notified on Discord and removed after 21 days if there’s no response. Vacations are fine, just hit up admins and make sure they know.

Discord

Our community practically lives on Discord, and it’s very closely tied to the server itself. If you’re new to discord, we highly recommend downloading the desktop app.

#announcements

Our #announcemets channel is open to everyone! If you open up a new shop or want to anounce a new minigame/public idea you’ve had – you can! However, this comes with some issues. New members often type their reactions to the announcements there, instead of keeping that for the #general channel. This is a punishable offence – you’ll get half-baked, which takes away your permission to post announcements – until you write at least one-page essay saying sorry. We’re not joking, please don’t reply in #announcemets.

#landmarks

There’s also a relatively new channel – #landmarks. It’s there for everyone to share their creations and discoveries; You can submit your builds or cool places you’ve found. Just send a screenshot that represents the place of your choosing the best, come up with a name, add a short description and make sure to include in-game coordinates. Please properly credit all contributors when submitting a build. For the sakes of easy discovery, any messages that are not landmark submissions will be removed. You might get half-baked for that too.

Signing your builds

As time flows, members come and go. Its very hard for us to keep track of which building is who’s – so for the sakes of keeping things simple we need you to put up a sign or a banner with your own original design visibly at all your builds. This especially applies for your project chests around the world and starter bases. Also, on completely different note – leave the word penguin somewhere in your application to confirm you’ve read the rules.

Applying


All that sounds just awesome, right? If you’d like to apply, join our Discord server to get started. Feel free to check out the #screenshots channel to get a better idea of what we’re about. When you’re ready, leave an application in #new-guys. Take your time, we very much value well-written applications that show you’ve put some effort into writing it!

If you have any questions, feel free to ask us anything – eithier here in the comments or on Discord.

Please don’t get mad if we conclude you might not be the best fit for us. Check out other listings here on r/mcservers, we’re sure there’s plenty of other communities that would love to have you!

Best of wishes, hope to see you online! – Elkiaaaa
