How do I join the Whitelist?

To be added to the Blocklandia Whitelist, you need to by the friend or family member of a current player on Blocklandia and have them let us know that you want to join. Each Whitelist application is reviewed prior to being added. If your application is accepted we will email you information about how to join the server. We will also email you if we have any questions about your application or if we deny the request.

You must have a Minecraft PC/Mac account to play on Blocklandia. Pocket Edition (PE), Xbox, and win10 accounts cannot access Blocklandia.

Please read our Terms of Service and Rules before you submit the request.

Why do you need my email address and what are you going to use it for?

We require a valid email address so that we can contact you regarding your Whitelist request and occasionally we use your email address to contact you if your child is having difficulty understanding the rules and we want to get you involved in helping them understanding what is allowed or not.

How do I find my Minecraft username?

To play on Blocklandia you need to have a Minecraft PC/Mac account. Blocklandia does not work with Pocket Edition (PE), Xbox, or Win10 editions.

Once you have a PC/Mac account you can submit a whitelist request. However, it’s important that you include your Minecraft username on your request. This is not your Mojang login (that’s an email). Your username cannot include any spaces and we cannot give you a custom username of your choice, or change what you selected when you purchased your Minecraft account.

If you don’t know what your username is, open the Minecraft launcher and login in using the email address that you used when you set up your Mojang account.

This is the login screen for Minecraft

Once you have logged in you are able to see your Minecraft username in the upper right corner of the screen. That’s the username you want to use on your Whitelist request so that we can add you to the server.

Your username is in the top right corner

I sent in a whitelist request and haven’t heard anything

We respond to every Whitelist request that we receive. However, sometimes the email that we send bounces back or, even worse, the original Whitelist request doesn’t have an email address for us to contact. Whitelist requests typically take 10 to 14 days to be processed. If you haven’t received an email from us and it’s been more than 14 days since you submitted your request, please send us an email directly to staff@blocklandia.com and we will help you figure out why you haven’t heard from us.

Can I still play on Blocklandia if I was banned on another server?

We run a check on each username that’s submitted against four major ban plugin systems. If we notice a ban attached to your username, we’ll contact you and ask for an explanation of what occurred. If you receive a previous bans email, we’ll ask you to be up front with us about what happened and how you’ll behave differently on our server. We understand mistakes happen, and people mature with age. If you have a tendency to grief but want to overcome that, tell us and we’ll work with you on how to behave differently on Blocklandia.

Oh no! My Launcher automatically updated, what do I do??

The new launcher defaults on using the most current version of Minecraft that has been released by Mojang. Unfortunately, servers like Blocklandia aren’t able to immediately update to the new version (we have to wait for plugins to update first.) When the server is not the same version as your Minecraft client you’ll see an “outdated server” message when you try to connect. This means you need to switch to the same version that the server is on, in order to join us.

The good news is, with the current launcher, it’s extremely easy to switch between versions. The first step is to click on the Edit Profile button in the bottom left side of the launcher:

Click on the edit profile button

 

Then change the version your profile is using to the previous version (or the version of the server) by clicking on the arrow after the Use Version: box.

The server is currently on release 1 . 8.8

I like to set up a profile for each version (labeled with the version number) so that I can easily switch back and forth as needed.

How do I use the new Minecraft launcher to switch versions?

The new launcher lets you switch between versions which is great because it allows you to update but still play on servers that haven’t updated to the latest version of Minecraft.

To switch between versions you need to set up individual profiles for each version number in the new launcher. Please note the server is currently on version 1.8.8.  This video explains how to do that:
