Calling all TimGaming banner artists.... We need ought to have an official TimGaming banner. What better way to do this than a CONTEST?
Over the next two weeks, create your best banner designs and post a screen shot of it on this thread. Just put one design per reply, so people can 'like' them. There is no need to make your banner in-game, so feel free to use Creative mode in single player mode.
Then, five candidates will be selected for a final vote to pick our winner... Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 entries. (Top 3 winners must provide recipies to create the winning entries).
Okay TimGamers, let's see what you can come up with!
The timgaming.com domain name is up for renewal soon, and I'm taking the chance to do something that I've been putting off for a bit(since around March, specifically. March of 2012.), which is transferring the domain from GoDaddy to Namecheap, due to GoDaddy's support of the SOPA legislation. There may be some downtime while everything transfers, but it should be up relatively quickly. In the meanwhile, you should still be able to connect to the website and Minecraft server with the IP address, which is 220.127.116.11. Using the IP is a temporary fix, and you should always default to using the domain name if it's available.
I'd like to wish everyone a Happy New Year. I hope that 2017 brings you good fortune, both in game and in real life! I am so looking forward to the upcoming year... I think it's going to be a good one!
I have some wonderful news to share with you all. TimGaming has met (and even slightly exceeded) it's goal of becoming 100% funded by monthly supporters. THANK YOU to all the people who have become Friends of TimGaming!!! What a fantastic community we have created. We have brought the server back from the brink of financial collapse, to being completely healthy! We should all be very proud of this accomplishment! Please thank our donors when you see them. You can recognize them on the forum by medals they have been awarded: Iron, Obsidian or Gold members. Soon, I hope to make them easier to recognize in game.
Over the next year, we will continue to grow the player base, host events and...
On behalf of everyone at TimGaming, let me wish each and every one of you the warmest wishes this holiday season! I am so grateful for having the opportunity to meet so many great and wonderful people. It really says a lot when so many people from every corner of the globe can gather in this virtual world we've created and become fast friends. It never matters where you come from, if you're old or young, rich or poor... you are always welcome here!
