Welcome to SafeCraft.

SafeCraft is a 'White listed' Minecraft server that is designed to be a safe place for children and the families & friends of children that have autistic conditions, to play Minecraft on line.

If you are a child or a family member, or friend of a child with an autistic condition, and you have the PC/Mac version of Minecraft you can apply to be added to the whitelist and granted access to the Minecraft Server.

SafeCraft was created by myself Ellis Deacon (in game name EllisWin) & my wife Michelle Deacon (in game name ShellyWin) after we took part in an autism awareness anti-bullying campaign, and decided that we wanted to do more as a family, so we started SafeCraft, SafeCraft is the first UK based Minecraft server, with owners that are trained in Safeguarding Children & Adults. The server and website have been specifically designed to be a place where children with autistic conditions can play safely, together with their friends & families without being judged, bullied or mistreated in any way.

We also invite applications from parents of any child, no matter what their ability, who would like a safe place for their children to play Minecraft online.

Some SafeCraft features include:
  • Sophisticated chat filtering software to keep in game chat friendly and supportive.
  • Survival worlds with no PVP and inventory protection.
  • Anti griefing software to protect your builds.
  • In game simple support ticket system for all players to access and ask for help.
  • Mini-games that add enhanced game play to Minecraft.
  • No pay to play, all items within the server shop can be bought with 'Points' which can be earned in game.
  • Friendly, supportive & helpful Admin/Moderation staff.
  • Safeguarding Children & Adults trained Owners & Staff
For more information please read our FAQ and Parent Information pages, we look forward to meeting you all on the server.

We have today taken the decision to stop server join/leave messages from displaying in the server chat lines.

We found that chat during busy periods on the server was being spammed by all the many different join and leave messages that were being generated by players as they moved around the server, and this meant it was difficult for players to keep up to date with chat, and often led to players getting confused and upset by the rapidly moving chat.


However we have also taken the decision to upgrade the Player Tab List view, to make it more informative and helpful, when players now press the TAB button on their keyboard, they not only see a list of which players are on-line currently but they also get to see which server each player is currently on, additionally players will see the current local time to them, a total player count, and the current rank that they hold.

We hope players enjoy the new Tab Player List view and appreciate the slower moving in game chat.

We are pleased to update you all that recently we completed additional training run by Northamptonshire County Council in Autism/Asperger's Syndrome - What is it?

The tutor (whom we have worked with) is Elaine Nicholson, the founder and CEO of "Action for Aspergers". Elaine has a Masters in Autism, a PGC (Post Graduate Certificate)  in Asperger's Syndrome, she is also a certified counsellor and holds a diploma in Management Studies.

The training given means that we are now able to define exactly what Autism & Asperger's Syndrome is, and can identify the different autism classifications that are regarded as 'autism spectrum' and recognise and understand different coping skills as a carer/volunteer of a person with autism.

The course included the History of Autism & Asperger's syndrome, including details about Leo Kanner, the first scientist to clearly define Autism, and also Hans Asperger who published the first definition of Asperger's Syndrome in 1944.

This is yet another step in our training completed, and we will continue to undertake further training, to be able to support our players as best as we can.

Elliswin AdminOwner Thank you, we decided when we started SafeCraft we should have some additional training so were in the best position ...
CeeJayGray MemberSupporter Well done, what a fabulous thing to do! (Charlie, CeeJay's mum) x

We have been informed by some players that there have been some problems relating to the ability to change your player skins, this has become a more important issue recently because of some players adopting player skins that go against the server rules.

Yesterday I contacted Mojang directly to find out what the problem was, and how we could go about resolving the issue.

Today I received the following response directly from them:

Please do not be alarmed, your account is still active and working. You can log in to the game and play as normal.


The issue you are experiencing is caused by a bug on our website. We are currently looking into this issue and I hope it will be fixed soon!

But for now:


A quick fix for the skin issue:
 
Please click the link, you see on your profile site, that tells you to buy the game.
"You have to purchase the game to change skin."
Click Get Minecraft! picture - it will load the store.
Go back to your profile, you should be able to change your skin now.
 
We are working on more permanent solution at the moment.


We urge all players that have any skins that are not permitted under our website rules to attempt to change their skins using the above method.

We would like to remind all players that any skin that is linked to the fictional character of "Herobrine" in any way is not permitted to be used on the website or server, and players who refuse to change player skins will be temporarily banned from the server until such a time as they have been changed.


Elliswin AdminOwner We have just heard from Mojang, this fault has be repaired and players can now change their skins normally. Ellis ...
So for the past couple of weeks there has been news on the server and in our videos about a cow called Timmy, and how he unfortunately got stuck up a tree, and earlier today it was announced that despite him being rescued from the tree, and being put safely into a small paddock, he has now mysteriously vanished and is missing.

Timmy's mysterious disappearance signals the launch of our next fun competition, The "Help us find Timmy the cow" competition.

For this competition we would like you our players to download a copy of the Timmy template, using the download link in the left had column of the website, and then we would like you to take a picture of your Timmy template in a funny place or situation, it could literally be anywhere, or if you are unable to do this, then to either find somewhere on the server, or build somewhere on the server that would be funny to see Timmy at or in, and once you are ready let a member of staff know and they will spawn a cow for you to take your screen shot with.

Then once you have your picture ready send them in to us, we will then feature them on the website and in videos over the coming weeks.

At the end of November we will take a look at all the images we have, and judge them to find the funniest picture of them all, you can enter more than once if you like, so get snapping those pictures and send them on in.

The winner of the competition will win some a very cool exclusive rank, (TBA) and some awesome in game items and points, including a full set of Mega enchanted Diamond Armour, Tools & Weapons. plus 5000 points to spend in the server store
