    Hello Everyone,

    First of all I want to thank all of you who have joined the new and improved ShadowBlox website and have been using it frequently. It truly means a lot to me that you care about ShadowBlox after all theses years. Thank you.

    So obviously Minecraft is a huge part of ShadowBlox. It's literally how it started therefore I think it's important to have a dedicated section on the website for this. I want Minecraft to always be a part of ShadowBlox. Obviously a lot of you have been wanting me to setup a new Minecraft server. I'd love to do this for you guys if there's enough demand and players to make it worth while. Also, hosting a server isn't cheap therefore we'd have to work out a way to fund it. Click here for the official thread on making this happen.

    Despite the fact I think it would be cool to setup a Minecraft server again and I certainly want to see this happen. I personally am not as dedicated to Minecraft as I used to be therefore I'd also like to create a new project that I/ we can be extremely passionate about. I want to expand ShadowBlox even further than Minecraft but I'm not exactly sure where yet. Here are some ideas I had:

    • Creating a gaming community. Obviously we've already got the forums. Perhaps we could host official events on certain games?
    • Setting up a TeamSpeak server
    • Making YouTube Videos? Perhaps some kind of YouTube network and/ or a community channel
    • Server hosting company
    • Clothing/ Other ShadowBlox Merch
    • Creating a smartphone app.
    • Reviews website? We could write reviews about music, films or whatever?
    • Something to do with University/ College. A place to study together in a fun way?
    I'm pretty much open to taking ShadowBlox in any direction. ShadowBlox should always be changing and adapting to whatever you guys want. What's important to me is that we create a community and build friendships through ShadowBlox. I think that's what ShadowBlox is truly about. Bringing happiness to people and allowing them to make friends to have fun with. I think it would also be cool to have different branches of the ShadowBlox community all doing different things. In other words theres no reason why we'd have to follow just one idea or have just one project. We can all work on multiple things in areas that interest each individual person.

    As you likely know, right now the website has three main nodes: General, General Entertainment and Minecraft. I'm planning to add new nodes with more specific groups depending on what becomes popular. For example, if the Nerdy section gets really popular it will get its own main node with sub categories such as coding, technology etc...

    I hope all this made sense. Sometimes I find it hard to express my ideas. If you have any questions, concerns, ideas or anything at all please reply to this thread. Thank you and I can't wait to see what ShadowBlox's future has to offer.

    Hey, guys! You might remember me, might not, but I was from ThinkOutsideTheBlox. I really would like if the server was started back up! Like if you guys agree ;)
