lots of little tweaks and organisation
This Land is very different from pretty much every not like other Minecraft servers because it doesn't come from Minecraft-Server culture. It is a safe nonbinary/autistic space first, and a Minecraft serversecond. A lot of the features reflect this.
==Keywords you'll recognise if you've ever played on public Minecraft serversTechnical Features==* '''Semi-vanilla''' - just Game changing or obtrusive plugins would make the server less accessible and even more niche than it already is, so we don't have them. Here are the [[Our plugins|a few pluginswe do have]] mostly for protection and chat management, nothing game changing.* '''Survival''' - all players (including mods and admins) play and build in survival mode, and have done from the very beginning so anything you see<ref>Exception: the [[tutorial building]] was thrown up quickly by the admin in creative mode because it was considered urgent and not something that interferes with the rest of the server.</ref> has been resourced and built with blood, sweat, and tears. This makes the server very fair<ref>We're autistic, so we like that :P</ref> - staff have to go mining for their diamonds, just like everyone else.
* '''Player-versus-environment''' - this server is not focused on player-versus-player.<ref>We have a [[Our plugins#PvPManager|PvP plugin]] that you can use if you want to fight with other players who want to fight.</ref>
* '''Mature''' - only players 18 and older are allowed to join.
* '''Small''' - currently about 6 regular players.* '''Whitelisted''' - something something, words. ==Keywords you might not recognise==* '''[http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=consent%20culture Consent culture]''' - Doing things that affect others without their permission is not how we do things.*'''[http://dsq-sds.org/article/view/1075/1248 Autistic space]''' - run by and for [[:Category:Players who are autistic|autistic people]]<ref> definitely autistic people, not people with autism. Autism is part of who/what we are and it's not an illness.</ref>*'''Nonbinary friendly''' - have to apply to join; much easier to maintain a safe place for nonbinary trans people - your pronouns will be respected.* '''Unadvertised''' - This Land isn't advertised in standard Minecraft server listings, So we never have any griefersthis way==Extra features maintained by staff==
* '''Custom [[How to use AutismChat|AutismChat plugin]]''' - significantly more control over chat-related stimulus.
 
* '''Effective, Accessible out-of-game communication''' - [[Telegram groups]] for socialising and discussion without having to be online at the same time as others.
* '''This Wiki'''
==Other, more volitile selling points, but no less awesomeSocial Features==* '''Organically evolving [http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=consent%20culture Consent culture]''' - Doing *anything* that affects other players without their consent is unacceptable, so don't touch anything<ref>If it's inthe wilderness and isn't obviously made by a player, you can do what you like. Be a bit aware of nearby builds by other players though.</ref> without asking. Intentional theft/griefing are unheard of here.*'''[http://dsq-game infrastructuresds.org/article/view/1075/1248 Autistic space]''' - run by and for [[Nether Network:Category:Players who are autistic|autistic people]]<ref> definitely autistic people, [[Jazzablenot people with autism. Autism is part of who/what we are and it's Everything Farm]], [[Automated Market]]not an illness.</ref>*'''Nonbinary friendly''' - a safe place for nonbinary trans people - your pronouns will be respected.
* '''[[Nether Hub#Heart Button|Whimsical admin]]''' - [[User:Cassolotl|Cassolotl]] makes the server both safe and fun.
 
==Emergent Features==
* '''Small/Quiet''' - currently about 6 regular players. This Land is intentionally not advertised in standard Minecraft server listings; we grow slowly by tweets, tumblr posts and friend referrals. Even if there were many players
* '''Organically evolving in-game infrastructure''' - [[Nether Network]], [[Jazzable's Everything Farm]], [[Automated Market]].
