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 the server 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.
  • Website 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.

This week is World Autism Awareness Week (WAAW) and we would like you all to come along to the server on Tuesday the 31st of March at 7pm GMT, to help us to support the National Autistic Society (NAS) & join us in some fun playing mini games at with us all.

The entire Win family will be online playing minigames for an hour or so, and we will be recording the games to put up on the SafeCraft YouTube channel

We will be working our way through as many of our arenas as possible, including paintbal, blockhunt, survival games, and all the rest, but its not all just about having fun, what we are also doing is trying to raise awareness of the NAS, and the great work they do providing people with autism (including Asperger syndrome) and their families, they provide information, support and pioneering services, and campaign for a better world for people with autism.

TantalicFive38 Member Ellis, I don't have Autism though

We have noticed lately that there are groups appearing amongst some members of SafeCraft, and these groups are creating unofficial game tags, which identify players with these game tags as belonging to a "gang" or group.

We are happy for players to play role playing games, and to make use of the nickname feature, but we would like to point out that by simply creating a nickname or tag, doesnt mean players with the tag are superior in any way, and all players are free to use the nickname feature appropriately, for example we have inherited a growing number of "Wins" on the server, the Win family seems to grow bigger day after day.

Whilst similar name tags could lead to confusion about who is who, we dont feel it fair that using these tags should be done in a way to make someone else feel left out, or inferior to anyone else on the server.

If any player has a problem with another players name tag or nickname we would like people to contact us and ask us for advice, we dont want anyone to get angry at another player and end up in an argument with someone.

I thought that this would be a good time to go over how ranks and game tags and nicknames work and what they mean.

Firstly and most importantly, other than staff positions Titles (Moderator, Jnr-Admin, Admin & Owner) there are no ranks on SafeCraft, everyone is equal.

Any other prefix on a players name is either an official game tag or self written nickname, both the Server Champion game tags are not ranks but game tags given as a reward for doing something that we believe deserved some recognition, Server Champions have no authority over any other player, it is simply a reward for something positive that they did.

The staff titles of Moderator, Jnr-Admin, Admin & Owner do not make the player with that tag better than anyone else, it doesn't signify superiority, it informs players of the server a persons role within SafeCraft, its a description of what they do, it does not make them any better than any other player, ultimately SafeCraft is a place where we are all equals, we all have the right to play a game we all enjoy, without judgment, without being bullied, and without having to put up with some of the horrible things people tell us they have experienced on some other servers.

The Member tag is one we should all remember and think about, its the most important tag there is, it says to everyone that we are all members of the same community of players, we are all members of SafeCraft, and each and everyone one of us came here for the same reason, and that was to play Minecraft in a safe and supportive environment, and that is what we should all be focusing on, so please don't worry that a player has a nickname similar to yours, or believe that by getting an official game tag, means you have more power or are better than someone else, or indeed that any staff member is better than you, we are not, we are just SafeCrafters.

Working as a team pays off.

Yesterday, whilst on the server a player commented that you could tell if ShelleyWin was AFK (away from keyboard) because she just stood still in random places, and this spurred ShelleyWin into building a small office in the main lobby of the server where staff members could go when they were AFK so players would know they were away from their keyboard or busy doing admin work.

 

Then one of the players asked could the server members have an AFK room also, Shelley thought this was a great idea, and set them a challenge of coming up with a fun AFK room for the lobby.

 

We were really pleased to see everyone jump into action, quickly discuss the design, and then work together to get the building done ready for me to copy it over to the lobby.

 

The group of players consisting of Minecraftbobomb, RubyGloom2014, DryCryCrystal, TantalicFive38 and BluecoolMonkey did a fantastic job of building the AFK room, and within a matter of minuets it had been built and copied over to the Lobby ready for use, So if your going AFK for a while why not place your player in the new AFK room so everyone knows your AFK.

 

 

Well done everyone for working so well together to build this, it was great to see, no arguments or complaints, simple team work to get the job done, were very proud of you all.

EllisWin & ShelleyWin

TantalicFive38 Member I love the new AFK room! Me and the guys made it look awesome and we used team work which matters most! ...

Over the last few weeks several players have been in communication with each other via Skype, these Skype calls have been organised and arranged externally of SafeCraft between players parents/Guardians.

We would like to point out that SafeCraft will not be held responsible for any content of any Skype calls/messages between players, as we have no way of monitoring or moderating these type of calls, we would also like to remind parents/Guardians that as we have no control over these types of calls/messages they are themselves responsible for monitoring and moderating these types of communications.

SafeCraft will not permit communication through its official in-game chat systems, both in public chat and private messages, relating to the setting up of Skype calls, passing of Skype details, or complaints relating to incidents on Skype, players that are found to be participating in this type of communication on SafeCraft chat will be muted.

Additionally SafeCraft will take action and remove any posts relating to arguments, complaints and incidents that have happened on Skype from forums and pages that display on the SafeCraft website, if we come across any messages/notes that cause us any type of concern, we will refer them onto players parents/guardians for them to deal with.

We hope you understand why we have had to take such a stance on this matter, but the overall goal of SafeCraft is to provide a fun and supportive place for players to enjoy minecraft, and quarrels, complaints and arguments about Skype is not conducive of such an environment.
