      "Pls Make It For MINESHAFTER"

    DID YOU KNOW?

    Did you know that a school in Stockholm requires its 13-year-old students to play Minecraft? By requiring them to build virtual worlds of their own, they learn much about city planning and how things like electric grids and water supply networks work. The Viktor Rydberg school promoted the game to improve the students’ creativity and use of imagination. Minecraft – or “Cave Game” as it was originally called by its creator, Markus Persson, doesn’t have limitations on what a player can create. This feature is exactly what makes Minecraft so successful among all open-world and sandbox games. It is also why it is one of the best-selling video games of all time.

    Since its release in 2011, Minecraft has sold over 144 million copies worldwide. It is the only other video game to have sold over 100 million copies, following Tetris which has sold 170 million copies in its lifetime. Free marketing has had a significant effect on the game’s popularity, as news about the game traveled fast through word of mouth. In a study done by the Annenberg School of Communication, it was discovered that one-third of early users of the game first heard about it from their friends, and another third discovered the game through YouTube videos.

      "While trying to figure out how to connect to different Minecraft servers, I tried the Desteria site. The homepage looked great, but for a Minecraft beginner like myself, provided no clear cut links or information on where to find or how to enter different servers. The homepage only gave links to forums, shopping, voting, and staff which did not provide a solution to my finding and connecting to a specific server problem. I was very disappointed with this solution because it only left me with more questions."

Looking around, I saw there is a forum and a few other options to look at...but nothing that immediately directs me anywhere. I had to scroll down to find an "About" section...and even that seemed vague... One can obviously donate to the site... One can probably play Minecraft with people the site shows are playing online... But will it allow me to set up dedicated space on their server so other can play in my Minecraft World?"

      "A while back I was looking for a decent server for this game and I ended up on the survival horror server. It's just like Resident Evil! Fantastic. I get to play my favorite game and see how long I can survive while also keeping track of all my resources. Whoever came up with this gets my thanks."
