Donate!Running CedarCraft is very expensive, and our server depends on your donations to stay online. Contributions from players are needed and greatly appreciated, helping us to cover the costs of the server, allowing us to continue to supply a fantasic Minecraft experience for everyone.
As a thank you for your donation you will receive a VIP membership along with many in-game perks.

CedarCraft has the strongest and friendliest community on Minecraft backed by the most dedicated team of administrators, moderators and developers possible.
We run many plugins to ensure that your time spent on our server is time very well spent and we are constantly listening to member feedback on our forums about how to improve, evolving together with our player-base. Even with these plugins we strive to maintain the vanilla survival aspect of Minecraft, not taking you away from the reason you bought the game in the first place!
Custom-made plugins provide a unique experience at CedarCraft compared to anything you'll find elsewhere and there are countless mini-games and competitions that you can partake in to win in-game prizes, including spleef arenas, Mob arenas, PvP arenas, The Walls, The Hunger Games and many, many more custom events. We run the RPG plugin mcMMO and are constantly assessing progress to ensure that it is balanced and fair, again making the game a lot more rewarding for you.
With a strong economy running, you can buy and sell from stalls in spawn, both admin and player-rented shops, you can auction items and even buy lottery tickets to be in for a chance of winning the jackpot! Logblock and Worldguard protect your structures from being griefed and other plugins prevent players from cheating, making the game as fair as possible.
It was over five years ago when I created my first Minecraft server with a group of friends from school. At 21 years of age, this works out to be a quarter of my life invested in running servers for the Minecraft community! A year later I split from that server to create another. The server was open to the public on 26th September 2011 and was called CedarCraft (after a whole summer of thinking of the name, that is!). Through generations of players and staff coming and going, we are where we are today.
As owner, during the first three years of my university life I could afford to run and manage the server, as although time is tight on a medical course, the support of the fantastic administration and moderation team meant that I had a fair weight lifted from me. However, I'm about to enter the clinical stage of my medical training and this will involve working on hospital wards, with 99% of what we learn being self-taught. Following on from the long-days in the hospitals that I'm sent to around the East of England, I'll have to study lots in order to expand my clinical knowledge and thus be the best doctor that I can be in the future. As such, I have realised that it will no longer be possible for me to own and manage CedarCraft in my little spare time.
Therefore, with deep sorrow this post is to inform you wonderful people that I shall be leaving the CedarCraft staff team. It has taken a very long time to make to the decision to leave, but I know that it is the right thing to do; both for my health and for the community. I will still be around; on the forums and in the game, but I won’t have the high responsibility and time-commitment that I will get at all other times during the day in the hospital. Likewise, as a player, you will continue to receive the support that the community needs from an owner who is able to commit fully to CedarCraft.
I am proud to announce that damo1995 will be taking over my role. Having owned a successful server for many years previous to coming to CedarCraft, Damo knows exactly what he is doing when it comes to management and I have full confidence that he will continue to bring the CedarCraft community the fantastic service it deserves. Although I am sad to be leaving and will greatly miss working with the community and staff members, I have high hopes for CedarCraft, which will continue to grow and develop many years from now.
I thank each and every one of you for making my time as owner a delight; it prides me greatly to think that I have been able to provide a service such as this for you all up to this point. A special thanks is needed for all staff, past and present, as well as to our many donators who have sustained the community through their generous donations. Without you wonderful people, absolutely none of this would have been possible.
In addition, I would like to extend a further heartfelt thank you personally to Damo, Sam and Mark on the administration team. You are the greatest, friendliest and most helpful people that I will ever have the honour of working with and I would have probably shut this server down years ago without your support. I know that CedarCraft will continue for a long time with you all at the helm.
Remember though, I am leaving the staff team but not the community. You will still see me on the forums and even in-game still from time to time, but I’ll be a colour other than red. Midnight on Sunday 14th September (UK Time) is when I shall be giving full control of this wonderful community over to Damo1995 and I’ll be on the server then to say my goodbyes as owner to you in-game too.
Until then, I thank you once more for being the best community in existence,
In light of the recent changes to the End User License Agreement (EULA) of Minecraft, our donation packages will be changing to ensure that we remain in accordance with it. We have thought very carefully about how to continue to provide you with a fantastic CedarCraft experience and I strongly believe that the new system will be more beneficial to the community than before.
The new system will take place on 1 Aug 2014 and will consist of the following. There will be two server-wide monthly donation goals. At the end of the month, everyone on the server (not just those who donated) will be awarded certain perks depending on which target was met from the previous month. This is shown below.
In addition to this, those who donated will be personally thanked by means of cosmetic perks as also highlighted below. We think that you will find the new plugins that we are adding for VIPs really great! In addition to many old perks, you can now transform yourself into most of the mobs and blocks in Minecraft, including a zombie, creeper, sheep or even a minecart! Scare your friends while dressed as a zombie pigman walking through their town, or enjoy a day in the life of a sheep, if that's what you prefer.
Also, if you have ever wanted a pet Herobrine riding a slime to follow you everywhere you go (let's face it, who hasn't?!) or be followed around the map by Notch, you now can too, with pets that are awarded to our VIP+ supporters. For the budding pyromaniacs amongst you, VIP supporters and above will also be able to launch random firework shows with the sweep of a few keystrokes, making your new build opening look even more epic.
For LifeVIP supporters, in addition to exclusive disguises, pets and trails, your helpful donation will be awarded with three NPCs that you can tailor to your liking. If you've craved for two guards and a chef in your house, your wish is now our command! Name them and dress them with whatever equipment and armor you like. Your NPCs don't even have to be human!
For a comprehensive list of the pets/disguises that will be available please click here.
Rewards for the server-wide goals will be awarded to the whole server in the following month, whereas individual cosmetic perks for donating will be as they are currently, acting for 30 days from purchase, or as a one-off payment in the case of LifeVIPs.
This new donation scheme will come into effect as of 1st August 2014. To kick things off, we will be awarding the whole community full perks (top table) in August and donations will begin to be tracked. Then, from September onwards, receiving these perks as a community will depend fully on the total donations raised in the month prior. So, if we raise £150+ in August, you will all continue to have the full perks through september and the donations total will be reset for counting towards the next month.
These changes mean that, by donating, you are not only getting some awesome perks for yourself but you are also helping towards unlocking very convenient perks such as warps and teleportation for the whole community. We are very excited for these changes and we hope that you are too. There is a general discussion thread here if you wish to ask any questions, otherwise for more personal queries and concerns please contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org (only the server owner has access to this inbox).
Many thanks for your ongoing support,
