    As of this month, the ImDeity Minecraft server is now 3 years old, making us one of the longest running Minecraft multiplayer servers ever!

    Initially created as a Minecraft Classic server for my sister and I to build on together, random players started joining and building on the same server. It rapidly grew from there, and a forum was installed for users to share their builds with the community. Around March of 2011, we started a Minecraft Beta/survival server (what we now know as just Minecraft). Many of our Classic users joined us there and, with the help of dozens of volunteer staff over the last 3 years, the server grew and evolved to be the ImDeity Kingdoms server as it exists today.

    As of today, I'm proud to report that 220,735 players have logged into our server, spending a total of 1,091,518 hours (45,479 days) in-game, and the community has made over 200,000 posts on our forum!

    Gwenhywar, our head moderator, interviewed some of the first players to join us 3 years ago that are still playing today. Here is what they had to say:

    Diddover, who was among the first 10 players on this server, states: "ImDeity actually was the first Minecraft server I ever went on. It was on the day I first found out about a cool game called 'Minecraft'. I made an account and logged into a server. Who thought that 3 years from then, I would still be playing on that same server?"

    Veteran eltono999 states: "Deity has been everywhere, from a small Classic startup, to one of the largest Minecraft servers in the world..."

    Kill3rtaco was staff on the old freebuild server, is staff now on the survival server, and also a developer. He was around the 90th player that started here. His memories and feelings show that this is more than just a place to play Minecraft: "This server and Deity in person has taught me a lot. I've met some wonderful people, who I will not soon forget in my lifetime. I will remember this server forever, as it gave me my start in Java Programming."

    FatD33r, who first joined us in April 2011, now a staff member for over a year, says: "Kudos to the Almighty ImDeity, a.k.a 'Sir-Admin-Owner-Person', for doing an amazing job since the beginning and has kept this place running great for all that time. Happy 3rd year for the server, and long live ImDeity Kingdoms!"

    We certainly don't plan on resting on our laurels, however, and will continue to evolve and improve the server. On that note, we have been testing a Feed the Beast Minecraft server the past few weeks, and we are happy to announce the official launch today. See here for more info and how to join the FTB server.

    This server wouldn't be possible without the help, support, and contributions of our large, diverse, and friendly community of players, and I'm very proud of what we have achieved together and thankful for the dedication of our staff and players that made this 3rd anniversary possible!

    Yay! Nostalgia! And to think that I've been here less than half the time that the server has D: What did I miss? (I'll give you a hint - the answer is everything)

    Congratulations all to three years! (even to those who have been here for just a day :) ) And thanks to Mr. ImDeity himself for going through all this with us. :)

    Those numbers are so incomprehensibly large. I'm proud to have been a part of a server that does so much for the people that play on it and where the staff interacts with the players so much on a daily basis. ImDeity's expansion as a server is a major step and takes a lot of work, so congratz to the staff that worked so hard!

    To put those stats in perspective, 14.6 million people have bought minecraft, which means about 1.5% of people who have bought the game have played on ImDeity Kingdoms.
    Thank you for your time and dedication to running this server, deity, it has been a wonderful experience for me and many others playing here :)

    Hey, I could not even interview myself. ;) I tried to get hold of people that were really among the starters, at least the first 1,000. :D We love all players, but those were here back in the days. :)

    All stand and rise for the pledge of Imdeity. *everyone stands. Now unfortunately, we don't have a ImDeity Pledge of Alliegance song, so now you can all just salute the flag for one minute.

    Happy birthday server!!! :D
