changes in rank/applying for artist

  • Minecraft Middle Earth is a Minecraft community that recreates the world described by JRR Tolkien and his writings. Everyone can participate in organized events in which we collaborate to create major landmarks, terrain, caves, castles, towns, farms and more.

    To get started, visit The New Player Guide
  • This weekend 20-21 April the website will be unavailable for a few hours for a scheduled upgrade and maintenance. Estimated time that the site will be unavailable will be around 3 hours.

  • This community does not generate revenue and relies on its members and financial contributors to keep it running.

    For a complete month, we would need around 235 USD for a break-even situation.



Aspiring Commoner
Jun 18, 2014
I haven't been on the servers since last summer around July or August and I am little confused. I applied and was accepted as a commoner a while back but now it showing me as just an adventurer, does that rank not exist anymore? Also I thought you needed to be a commoner to apply to be an artist. Can I go ahead and apply for it as an adventurer?
Also I see the Artist application guide but where do I post my application, in the Artist Thread?
Sorry if these questions are answered elsewhere I tried to look and didn't see anything but I definitely could/probably missed something.
Thank you for your time.

The ranks Thrall and Commoner were merged into Adventurer on September 1 2014. As an Adventurer you have Commoner permissions. You can apply for Artist as an Adventurer, and for the other ranks too. Post the application in the thread DSE linked.
