Hello everyone,

Thanks to the players who participated in April's Plot Contest! We had 58 unique Mansion submissions and our judging panel is currently going through all of them.

A note regarding submission of plots: please do not submit your plot multiple times, or submit multiple plots. If you spam the form with the same or a number of different plots, you will be disqualified from the competition.

A winner will be announced shortly via Discord ( #announcements and on Twitter (@NetherGamesMC).

Due to the positive uptake and interest we have seen in last month's contest, we've decided to do it again this month! However, we will be making a change to how the contest is run.

Staff Position Requirements Update

Hello NetherGames players,

We have recently updated applicant requirements for all staff positions.

The change requires you to be registered and be active both in-game and on our Discord server for at least 1 month before you apply.

Registered means that you must have an in-game NetherGames account and a verified Discord account (Verified role). Being active means that you must have a reasonable amount of communication with the rest of the community both in-game and on Discord.

This means that if you have just recently joined the Discord server because it is a staff requirement to be registered there, or if you have joined NetherGames in-game for only 1 day and decide you want to take up a staff role, you are NOT ELIGIBLE TO APPLY for a staff position here for at least the next month.

We will be enforcing this requirement and there are procedures in place to check your activity, so please do not try to apply if you do not meet the criteria.

Thanks for your attention!
