Hey there Craftyners, it's Stormy again, bringing you the Lighthouse contest results!

So, as you know, we did some staff judging, that lead to the top 4 of our favorites, #4, #5, #7 and #17, so we did the poll so you guys could help us decide on a winner. Well...The votes have been counted, the results are in, and...*drum roll* the winner is: #17 Congratulations Nattov!

Grand Prize: 4,000 mirs + 30 donation tokens + 20 sea lanterns + Your own enchanted abridged copy of Moby Dick + Your lighthouse design placed at spawn for all to enjoy!



For those of you who are as curious as I am, here are the others and where they placed after voting:
  • #7 Nutcrackertree: 2nd place
  • #5 Tannthekilla: 3rd place
  • #4 Elliegantly: 4th place

The lighthouse is scheduled to be placed in spawn sometime this weekend.
Thanks so much to all of you who entered. You all worked so hard. Every lighthouse was lovely and I wish we could've had more than one. But, I hope you all had a lot of fun, and I'm excitedly looking forward to the next building contest. As a small teaser....it's already in the works, and let me tell you....it's like nothing Craftyn has seen before ;)

Hey everyone, I wanted to let you know about some changes which are happening on the server. Over the course of several months, maybe even years, we have had people asking us how to become a builder for the server and the only answer we could give is to build good and the Owners might randomly talk with you and give it (which was super rare). The reason we gave that answer is because that is how we have always done it dating back to the very first builder @Assblasster88 to the current builders. Continuing to get builders like this will not work especially if we are wanting to add more builders to get projects in the backlog completed. As a result of a need for change, we are changing up the structure of the builder team which now includes a structure and an organization to the team. Having a structure to the builder allows us to have a framework to support more than just three or four builders, increasing the efficiency of the team as a whole instead of being completely disorganized. So, we are going to be adding one more rank to the Creative Team which will rest under the builder section. We are going to now have Architects.

Think of Architects as the "senior builders" who have more experience being an official builder on the server. This does not in anyway mean the architects are the better builders, just means they have seniority on the staff team. The Architect position is here to provide structure within the builders section of the Creative Team, this way if a builder has questions or needs direction on a project they have someone to go to which they can relate to better....currently if a builder is stuck and needs direction they come to me but considering I am not a builder it isn't the best, thus having the Architect to go to and the Architects being able to go back to builders is a good thing for the entire server as a whole.

No doubt you're wondering how...
