We want to see you dance!

For the month of November, we want you to submit a video of yourself doing the Tarzan dance. What is the Tarzan dance?

This is the song:

This a video of people doing the dance:

What we want is for players to submit a video of themselves doing the dance. It doesn't have to be the whole song, just the same part as what you see people doing in the second video. You don't even have to do it exactly as they do it. If you can make your video look good and impress the Admins, you could win. We just want to see you dancing to the music.

Submitting Your Video

Obviously YouTube is the best way to get your video online for us but it's not the only way. There's also Dropbox, Google Drive, One Drive, Vimeo and others. Here's a short article on some handy ways to get a video uploaded:

Once you have it uploaded, submit it in the comments to this thread:
https://www.autcraft.com/forum/m/16338872/viewthread/32326765-new-contest-win-10000-points/page/1

Contest Deadline

The contest runs from now until the end of November, 2018. At the end of November 30th, EST, we'll stop taking submissions.

A winner will be selected on December 15th, 2018.

The winner will receive 10,000 points (value of $100) to use in our store at https://www.autcraft.com/shop

Rules

- Your video must include the music. It can be played over the video (edited in) or it can be in the background.
- You can wear a mask (it was just Halloween after all) if you don't want to show your face.
- The dance doesn't have to be exactly as they do it in the video. Feel free to improvise.
- The winner will be selected by the Admins.
- We will be judging the video over all so it's not necessarily the best dancer that will win.

Now, we know that not everyone can dance and not everyone has a video camera and not everyone wants to upload videos of themselves. Don't worry, we understand. Consider this a test for future contests. If people are willing to participate and get involved, we'll be holding more contests in the future with different requirements... no dancing. 

Basically what we're saying is, if you want to see more fun contests with big prizes, participate! And we'll do more!

Over the last 5 years, we have had some players who constantly cause drama on the server for everyone. Sometimes they're just depressed, sometimes they're feeling very negative. Sometimes a bad thing just happened in their lives.

There's two main problems here and that is when this is a constant thing that is always made public for everyone to see and the other is that this often leads to those players being combative and even downright rude to the other players.

We not unsympathetic. In fact, the reason that we have let it go on and on for so long with some players is that we know it's not their fault. We know how hard it is for them. We want to help.

However... there comes a point when it has to stop.

Here's the thing, it's not fair to the other players. Sure, there will be times when drama hits.... someone was bullied, a pet died, someone's just feeling down... but when it becomes a constant source of drama, then that's just not healthy for the other players. Players don't come to Autcraft to have someone do that to them over and over again.

There are some players who insist on making their drama public rather than talk to us privately about it. They have to be negative for everyone to see. They have to attack other people for all to see. They have to get the full attention of the entire server. They simply will not just talk to a friend, or to us... they always, every time, drag the entire server into it.

Many times they go out of their way to wait until those small moments when no Admins or SrHelpers are on to disrupt and upset everyone. They even go so far as to say "uh oh, an Admin is on. This must mean I'm going to be banned now." any time one of us does show up and then promptly leaves on their own.

So anyway, before this gets too long, this is the point... any players that the Admin team finds to be constantly dragging the entire server into drama, who turns their negativity into insults, attacks or cruelty, anyone we find to be avoiding us or subverting us just to have an unmonitored audience that they can say anything to... will be removed from Autcraft.

Again, we wish it wouldn't come to this and I have touched on this before... the needs of the entire server outweighing the few... but this is the first time we're taking a hard stance.

We have to recognize that some people need real therapy. Actual professionals who have the training and experience to help these players with real world problems. We have to admit that a Minecraft server full of children as young as 6 years old is not the place to be bringing drama and negativity to on a daily basis.

Now, don't get me wrong... those players who feel down a lot of the time, we're still here for you. Talk to us in private, in messages, mail, talk to your friends about it... by all means, Autcraft will always be there for you.

All we ask is that private things remain private and that children remain free to be happy and have fun without anyone constantly bringing them down.

Those players who read this and worry that they fit this description, feel free to contact any of us and talk to us. We'd really rather not have to remove anyone if we can help it.

CreeperGaming718 Oh... This might be difficult to me for POTW =I OOF
Moonlight_Fin i would like to contact you about this post for being fit to this description please.
destinyisntfree It makes me sad that it had to come to this, but it also makes me feel really confident that the admin team has the best...

October 23rd, 4pm EST. Write it down!

At 4pm EST (same time that we do POTW) on October 23rd, we will be opening the Village of Boos for all to visit. But that's not all! We'll also be adjusting the chances of getting a shiny skeleton head, we'll be making the sale in the store even better, we'll be announcing some ranks for players and to finish it off.... someone will be getting the AutismFather Sword!

So again... October 23rd at 4PM EST (same time as POTW), we will:

  • Open the Village of Boos
  • Increased chance of getting a shiny skeleton head
  • Sale in the online store
  • New ranks for some players
  • Someone will be getting the AutismFather Sword!

The shiny head rates and sale will last for one week... the last week of October!

LambAndHam How much easier is it to get the shiny? Quite a few of us were continuously farming skeletons for possibly 2 or so hour...
Moonlight_Fin i hope autcraft updates to 1.13 sonn because then it'll be more easier for me
EvanOrizam like this you will have to update ac directly to 1.14 (:
Here's what's happening:
The Village of Boos - It's being worked on right now with new things to see and do. We'll be opening it up shortly before Halloween!
 
Shiny Skeleton!! - Normally we add shinies without telling players so that they can discover them for themselves but in this case, we know that players would like the opportunity to get it before Halloween is over so they can use them to decorate their bases. So, starting now... Shiny Skeleton heads!!
 
Decorator Heads - Speaking of decorating bases for Halloween, we've added 3 new sets of decorator heads for Halloween and one of them is FREE!
 
Head to our online store at https://www.autcraft.com/shop or use the in game command /buy
 
There's more to come so make sure to keep checking in!!
 
LambAndHam Thanks for the free heads! :) :d
AbysalDrag0nfish I wish i could get some... :/ Can you plz give me another chance? miss you guys. The pumpkin skeleton looks cool btw!

So AutconUK and Minevention are over, what a fun time we all had. AutconUK was a huge success especially as we had AutismFather join us and then a YouTuber called WizardKeen, which just made our day extra special. Minevention was amazing, it felt like Autcraft was on tour, watching AF and TheDonster on stage was awe inspiring. We were all walking around in our Autcraft T-shirts representing the server and often being stopped by people asking us all about it. Anyway I need to thank all the parents and players that came along to Autcon, I hope you all had a safe journey home. It was an amazing day and I hope to see you all again at next years AutconUK. I would also like to thank Minevention, Boxhead Craft, Squirrel Coffee, and all the Mums and Dad's that helped out. A special thank you goes to covakaresmum, your cookies were Autsome, Gwaryers Mum for making those super bracelets and Hannah's Mum and sister for doing the glitter tattoos. Also, HannahMC00 and my children DaisyBoo and TheDonster for taking charge of all the digital and creative tasks that needed doing, between the three of them they did an excellent job. Thanks also to ScotGator, SavageCabbage and EvilDaQueen for coming to the rescue when my transport for the hall let me down last minute. So it's all done now, we can all take a deep breath and rest until next year.

Moonlight_Fin wait, is Autcon AU still going?
dreamysnail Its a few weeks since we went to Autcon UK and it has been awesome for fluffyrosie. She got to meet her friends for real...
