    Hey everyone!!

    I'm hosting a 24 hour Minecraft gaming and stream session this weekend in aid of Macmillan cancer research.

    The server is open to anyone and is not whitelisted, the below is copied from my Justgiving page, if you'd like to watch, view the donation page or join in please see this link: https://www.justgiving.com/GameChangers42

    For Game Changers I will be playing Minecraft 1.8 from the very start and seeing how far I get. Hopefully getting to The End in 24 hours, that's the aim at least!

    The game will be played on a server where anyone can join, so there'll probably be trolls a plenty :3

    Want to donate? Please donate via the JustGiving page, even if it's just £1, anything would be amazing for such a great cause!

    Want to watch the livestream? The stream will be active from Saturday 19th 7pm to Sunday 20th 7pm on Twitch ~ Everyone is welcome to view it here: http://www.twitch.tv/monodragon

    If utter chaos ensues, the footage will be uploaded to Youtube at a later date

    Want to join in? The Minecraft server will be publically open for anyone to join from Saturday 7pm until Sunday 7pm (or until I remember to put the whitelist back in place). I want to make this as fun as possible so feel free to chase me down and attempt to stop me from reaching my goal!!

    IP for server: 185.38.148.56:25569

    Look forward to see all you Minecrafters there ^u^

    Thanks :) I was considering doing a more difficult game/FPS but realised I needed one which I could continue playing even when I got stupidly tired xD

    Why does it matter how many spaces it has? I'll be going for 24 hours, I doubt I'll get 6 people online all the time, if at all xD and if you're trying to get on before the time it's open then you won't get on, no. It's only open to the public (as it were) during the times listed (sat 7pm onwards) as it says above. This is so people don't go on and ruin the place or set traps around spawn before I get started. I'm also testing plugins until that day. But when it hits 7pm on Saturday the whitelist will be removed allowing anyone on.

    Ah ok, well I can't get more spaces as that'll cost more money. :) but as I said I'll be surprised if it does fill and stays full all through the day :)

    Offline would be single player, wouldn't it?

    In Minecraft terms offline means not connected to the authentication servers so you can play as someone else's username (and pirates can join).

    I wasn't going to go for the whole "I'M A PIRATE CAN YOU SET IT TO PIRATE MODE?!" But yes that is essentially what I meant.

    Oh, thanks for the explanation Cool110!

    In that case @Sky-M it's certainly not. It's a 100% authenticated server. I don't deal with anything that's not.

    For everyone's info (as I forgot to add this) - This is a charity stream based server, and while I am happy for people to try and stop me getting to my goal (to add a bit of fun to the game), no cheating, constant trolling or anything illegal (including using mods etc to get the upper hand) will be allowed nor appreciated. Anyone found doing that or generally being a pain will be swiftly removed from the server :) I am doing this 24 hour stream for fun & to raise money, I don't have to open the server for others to join, so should people start joining deliberately to cause problems and continue to do so after being asked to stop, the whitelist will be turned on and I shall continue on my own ^^ - thanks in advance!
