    CraftBlock Weekly
    Issue #51

    Hello everyone, and welcome to this postponed issue of the CraftBlock Weekly! I'd like to apologize for the unannounced absence of the Weekly. If I wasn't going to write anything, I should have made a post about it, so that much is my fault. If you'd like to know what happened to me, the first week was too uneventful to write about anything, the second week I was in Tennessee, and this past week Koa told me to write up some wiki documentation. With all that in mind, we have plenty of content we need to cover from the last three weeks, so let's get right into it!

    Weekly Digest

    • Like I said above, Koa's put me to the task of writing up some wiki documentation. It's taken me a little while to get started, but now that I have things figured out, you should start to see CraftBlock's Wiki information start to trickle into our forum wiki section soon!
    • Our Admin team has been working very hard on the new server, and @asacavanagh tells me that it should be open very soon! Everything should be ready within the next two weeks or so. That's subject to change, as we want to be thorough as we can possibly be with this update, but that due date is looking good, considering our progress. Get excited, folks! ^_^

    Submission: I love Doctor Who it is a fantastic show, this is my first weekly build and when I saw it was sci-fi themed I said to myself well I could make the Tardis. I started out small about a quarter of the plot space available and was talking about it in the chat. CorinJames saw my messages and was intrigued he came to me and liked what I saw although I thought it was way to small. I started to take it down and he gladly helped, then I started on the corners making it BIG. I am really glad that I made it bigger because it looks awesome, CorinJames helped me build The Tardis to what it is now and I was very glad. I had lot's of fun building this with Corin because we both made mistakes at some points and we both caught each others mistakes. If I had of done this alone I would have failed and probably rage quitted so I thank CorinJames for your help.
    Enjoy looking at the Tardis!...

    CraftBlock Weekly
    Issue #50

    Hello everyone! I'm proud to present CraftBlock's 50th issue this week! The Weekly has seen well-written days, sloppily-written days, and multiple written-by-other-people days. I'd like to thank every single person who has supported my writing all this time, or who has helped keep the Weekly alive by writing it in my absence. Thank you, dear readers, for tuning in every week and getting your weekly summary of the news through this newsletter.

    I've been a little out-of-sorts lately, but this milestone and all the work behind it makes me feel motivated to keep writing Weeklys for as long as I can. Again, thank you so much to everyone involved in making this happen, especially the readers. Without you guys, there'd be no point in writing this.

    Since I have you lovely readers reading this right now, let's get to this week's happenings!

    Weekly Digest
    Haven't seen this in a while. Thankfully, we have some juicy insider information for you all this week, so here you go!
    • @misskoa has been working on redesigning the warps at spawn. The warps area will be a lot less cluttered, so look forward to it!
    • We've been toying with the idea of having a separate resource world for gathering materials from the world in which you build in. This would help reduce griefing, and would make me feel less guilty about chopping down whole forests of trees....
