Autcraft - Who gets in?

AutismFather a posted Wed at 11:45
There still seems to be some confusion by players as to what exactly Autcraft is and who it is that we're letting in and who we're not.

Let me say straight away, Autcraft has never ever been "autism only."

There seems to be this rumour going around that Autcraft is now letting in people that do not have autism and that it's going to ruin the server. The thing is, from the very first day, we've encouraged those children that have friends they like playing with to have their friends join in as well. Those friends still have to fill in a whitelist application and you are responsible for your friends but they can play too. We want players to be happy, comfortable and having fun and if they want to play with their friends to do that, we encourage it.

And of course, as everyone knows, we also allow family to play whether they're parents, grandparents, siblings, cousins... it doesn't matter. Again, it's all about playing with those you are comfortable with.

On top of that, we've made no secrets about having journalists on, researchers, therapists, instructors and other people that have joined in. We have some people that run groups, camps or classes and they join so that the children they have visiting them can play.

The very first Facebook post I had ever made to announce the opening of the server, on June 23, 2013 says "My latest project... AutCraft, a Minecraft server just for children with autism and their families. Well, other children are welcome too. :)"
I've included a screen shot of it below.

It has never been our intention to seclude autistic children away from the rest of the world. This is not a server of isolation and segregation. We don't want to lock you away from the rest of the world.

Our mission is to keep out the trolls, haters and bullies... that's it. It's a "safe haven", as some people call it, not an exclusive club.

If you came here expecting to find a server where only autistics would ever be accepted, I'm sorry, you were given the wrong impression.

However, that being said, we also do not accept whitelist applications from totally random, non autism related people either. If someone comes to us because they just want to help, they just want somewhere that's nice or if they just want to check it out, we do reject their application.

This is how we break it down

We only accept players if they:
  • have autism, autism in their family
  • work within the autism community and represent autistics that could benefit from Autcaft
  • if it is to be temporary to gain knowledge of what we do to or share our story
  • if they know someone already on the server and that person has asked us to let their friend on.

When PSJ visited the server, I answered over 500 emails a day and at most, maybe 40 of them came from actual autistics. The rest were denied.

Again, Autcraft is not and has never been, from day one, an autism only server. It's a server to allow autistics to feel safe from bullies and judgment. That's it.

I hope that clears up any misconceptions.

Down for maintenance

So, woke up and found Autcraft is offline?  Don't worry too much.  Keep smiling :)  We'll be back on as soon as we can.

We are down for maintenance.  Our always awesome technicians are working as hard as its humanly possible to help keep this downtime as short as possible so we can all get back online as soon as possible.

Whilst its offline browse the forum, do some homework maybe, perhaps get some sun and play outside for a while?  Maybe read a book or create something truly awesome in singleplayer.

See you in game soon.

Last year we started the server off with a bang by having fireworks shows on the 4th of July for everyone.

This year we'll do it again only this time, instead of doing 2 shows at specific times, We'll just do random fireworks through out the day.

All of the players and welcome to do their own fireworks shows as well as I know that some have been preparing already.

So stop in at any time and join us for some 4th of July fireworks!!
