    Starter Questions

    I've accepted all the rules now where am I? Where do I go from here?
    Welcome to Nerdcrafteria! After agreeing to the rules and pressing the button you'll be teleported to our main world. You can build a permanent home, shop in the market, and join a guild here. We have several other worlds you can access which are detailed below:
    Explore world - Every month our expedition visits a new planet! In our explore world you can gather resources, build, hunt, and mine as you wish. Just remember that everything resets on the 1st of the month, so you will need to store valuables somewhere safe! You can easily visit by using the command /explore

    Asteroid world - You have your own personal asteroid and can build here as you wish! This is a great place to store personal belongings because it is protected from other players. You can also /fly here! To get started, type the command /asteroid​
    How can I contact a staff member?
    If you need to report something to a staff member, we have an in-game ticket system that you can use. At the location of the problem simply type /modreq followed by a description of your issue.

    Outside of Minecraft, if you have a question you can also contact a staff member by email or private forum message. You can find a list of our current staff and their email addresses listed here.

    General Server Questions

    When will we update to the newest version of Minecraft?
    Nerdcrafteria relies on many plugins, all of which have to be updated to the newest version of Minecraft before we can update the server. Please be patient and enjoy all we have to offer! You can view the version of minecraft we are currently using on the Joining Nerdcrafteria wiki page.

    What is griefing?

    Griefing is defined as altering, stealing, destroying, or generally messing with property (builds, items, penned or named animals, etc) of other players without their permission. As the Code of Conduct states, griefing is not allowed on this server.

    Is PVP allowed?
    PvP is explicitly not allowed unless it is in clearly defined arenas/minigame worlds sanctioned by the server staff. Lava killing, creating death holes, trapping other players with hostile mobs, and other forms of killing players are all immediate grounds for being banned from the server.

    Help, I've been banned / muted! How do I appeal?
    If you've been banned or muted on the server and would like to appeal, you can fill out a punishment appeal form. Be honest and as articulate and clear with your appeal as you can. Any further questions you might have can be addressed within the form/appeal. It would also be a good idea to make certain you completely understand the rules outlined in the Code of Conduct before you appeal as well.

There are various perks, boons, items, and fun extras you can purchase! All money donated to the server is profited to The Foundation to Decrease World Suck (FTDWS), a charity owned in part by the Vlogbrothers.

    Vanity Tags can be acquired in a few ways; by donating to the server (click the Donate tab above or /buy), by joining a guild, or by being a VIP member.

    Nerdcrafteria FAQs (Economy Server)

    How do I rent/sell a Market Stall?
    To buy a plot simply right click the for sale sign on the mailbox in front of the open plot. If you’re having trouble finding a free stall to buy you can try the /as find buy [max price] command.

    To extend your rent (by up to 3 months) you simply right-click on your rent sign

    To unrent your plot you simply use /as unrent

    Can I rent more than one plot?[/COLOR]
    You are allowed to rent one market stall..
    My plot / market stall disappeared! What happened?[/COLOR]
    Nerdcrafteria has a policy that if a player does not log on for three weeks their plots are subject to be reclaimed and wiped clean. The only way to protect your plots is by filing an AFK Form on the forums. This will protect your stuff, but please be aware there is a limit to how long you can be gone. You can read more about the AFK policy here.

    Market stalls can only be rented for 3 months maximum If you don't renew your rent regularly, it may have expired.


    How do I keep my stuff safe?

    Need to protect your things in Explore? Simply lock your things with /lock and punch the object to protect it. Want friends to have access? Try using /cpassword [password] and give your friends the password. It costs 5* for each protection. For a list of blocks you can protect and more info about privacy locks click here. Otherwise, your asteroid is a great option to store things safely.

    How do I set a home?

    To set a home, use /sethome [home name]. Then to get back to your home, do /home [home name]. You can have a maximum of 2 homes (3 with a bed) at any time in Nerdcrafteria. All homes in /explore, /nether, and the end must be cleared before the reset on the 1st of the month.

    What is a boon and how do I use it?


    There are two types of boons: Buycraft and Guild. Buycraft boons affect everyone on the server while it is active, while Guild boons only affect people from that guild. You can donate for a boon here. Guild Boons are 7000* each and can be purchased at your guild hall.
