Minecraft Middle Earth is a Minecraft community which recreates the world described by JRR Tolkien and his writings. People can participate in organized events in which we collaborate to create major landmarks, terrain, caves, castles, towns, farms and more. This is a creative build server, we are not a survival or roleplaying server. The focus lies in creating the world and making the journey the experience.

Minecraft Middle-Earth is a community that offers various services, completely free. I like that everyone can enjoy a great user experience by offering people that experience where you aren't forced into clicking ads, voting, getting lured to a Minecraft listing website where you have to vote for us, or 'paying to win'.
There is a policy which allows you to receive vanity items on our build server by donating:
- 50$ donated in total will get you an exclusive horse which can only be used by you.
- 20$ donated in total will get you a ribbon on the forum, showing you as a 'Donor'. You will also receive an in-game colored nickname over your head, called a 'tag'.
I keep a simplified bookkeeping, which is available here, so you can quickly see how much the project costs in terms of renting webspace, servers, software licenses, etc...
Being financially secure is important to the Minecraft Middle-Earth community, so we can keep going on. Therefore, if you want to contribute, please make a voluntary donation by clicking on the link below. Thank you :)
Today the idea was brought up the bring the "meet the staff" section back once more to the Times, but as both I wanted something more innovative aswell as seconds after that suggestion "meet the artist" was brought up aswell and Speedy urged not to forget about the poor droogs I got something new: #WeAreMCME; probably bit a sketchy title, but you will have to deal with it. The concept is really simple: I made a google form with a few questions in it where everyone can fill in his answers. The submissions with the most funny / entertaining answers will get featured in the Times, completely irrelevant of the rank.
Here's the google form: MCME Times survey
Everyone is more than welcome to submit! I also very gladly take new questions that may generate interesting or fun answers, please send me those via PM.

So I blogged the last few weeks about upcoming changes to the forum system. Since of a few days the update has been installed and this post recaps one of the most important changes.
People can now either register or associate an external account to ease the login process. If you associate with steam for example, we have some nice statistics gathered on:
Additionally, the forum has seen an update as well when it comes to liking profile posts, notices, two-step verification which is optional, but a serious security feature. However it might be really overkill for you.
Thread tags are now also possible, which enable a "search cloud" where more searched terms appear bigger...
You all, especially the younger ones among you, know the ever present stereotype of the lazy gamer doing "nothing" all day long. Many of you know the situation that five minutes after you turned on your PC (or whatever device it shall be) you already get blamed by someone to be doing it for hours already. I can't straightly deny the stereotype as I guess there are many out there on which it may fit, but for your all easing I can tell you that with chosing MCME as one of your games to play you definitely made no bad choice in terms of whether your virtual activities are now useless or not. Once you get a bit into it there is so much knowledge and brainwork that flows into such a project that you can indeed profit from it, therefore, even if you have never been confronted by the task to plan something, try to get into the projects and try to reveal the thoughts that were put into it, e.g. what...
