Hello!
I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, and to those who don't celebrate, Happy Holidays!

As you all know, today marks the conclusion of the Holiday Build Competition. I'm proud to announce our three winners, all of whom made excellent builds - I suggest you go check the builds out!

Congratulations to our Holiday Build Competition Winners!
Winners will be messaged their vouchers on forums, and given tags in-game.

1st: $75 Store Voucher
@TJeye
2nd: $50 Store Voucher
@PolarWolfYT
3rd: $25 Store Voucher
@iPug8

Special mention to @Lorrees as well.

We've also had a Twitter giveaway of the CookieMonster rank. Congratulations to the winner, PinkityDrinkity!

Lastly, thank you to all of our staff applicants - the team is now back to standard with over 25 total staff!
That being said, we're still accepting applications, though the standards are a tad higher than before.

An announcement will be coming on New Years regarding new content & features, the future of CandyCraft, and December's top voters.


Enjoy the flash 90% Christmas Sale!

Kind Regards & Merry Christmas,
- Evergreen
Hello!

As Candycraft is expanding, we need to have a larger staff team to make sure our network chat will be moderated at all times, and any rule-breakers will be caught.

I'll cut straight to the point - we're looking for new staff!

Here are some of the qualities we look for in new staff members:

-----+-----
Maturity
Activity
Dedication to Candycraft & knowledge of the community.
You know how to work with a team.
Good understanding of the gamemodes you play.
(Optional) Past staffing experience - though this isn't a must have, it will increase your chances of acceptance to the team. Make sure to include proof of past experience if you have it.
-----+-----

Here are some of our expectations for staff applications:

-----+-----
Lots of detail. For long response questions, a paragraph or more.
Correct grammar & spelling.
A nearly clean history - no punishments in the past 30 days.
-----+-----

Note:
Some of these expectations may be put aside if administration and I feel a player has potential to be a good staff member.
Since we're specifically looking for staff, even if you don't meet every single requirement, you can still try applying.

Interested? View a more detailed guide here.
Apply for staff HERE.

Good luck to all applicants!

UPDATE!
The wait period between applications has been temporarily changed from 30 days to 15 days!
Yo,

Just thought I'd bring you guys a quick fishing update before Christmas just for something extra to do! This update we added a fishing rod along with a fishing rod enchant to the store. Buying either will allow you to randomly catch special items while fishing. These special items include money rewards, spawners, keys, more!

Want to be the first to check it out? Get them here!

Hey guys, It's Dylan here.

Second feature announcement in one day? I must be working extra hard!

Anyways, we've finally readded /syncaccount in game. This will allow having your donator rank on the forums, and if you're staff, you'll receive that too!

How does it work?
It's very simple. Simply type /syncaccount in game and it will bring up a message like this:

After clicking it, you'll be greeted with this nice page:

It's as simple as that! I hope you all enjoy this super cool update.
Hello!

I'm excited to announce the release of some cool new purchasable items.

~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~

We now sell store gift-cards! You can buy one and use it until the balance reaches zero, or, you can get one for a friend!

Technical Information:
After purchase, a code will be emailed to the email you used in the purchase. Then you can use that code yourself or give it to a friend.

Gift-cards are available for $10, $20, $50, and $100.

The cool part is: for higher prices, you'll actually save money - gift-cards are sold for less than their worth the higher the value!

Buy them here!

~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~

Another awesome feature we've added to Skyblock 2 is Rainbow Armor! Get it here for only $6.
The armor cycles between a rainbow of colors!


To anyone who played Skyblocky 1.0 before the merge to Candycraft, you might remember this armor!

Hope you enjoy!

Oh, and remember to enter the Build Competition! Winners will be picked on
Christmas!

[​IMG] Hello! [​IMG]

You all may have noticed the huge change on Skyblock 2: the spawn is now decorated for the Holidays!
Go check it out at /spawn on Skyblock 2 - you won't be disappointed!

A huge thank you to the staff team for putting in so much work to build it.

I'm also happy to announce that we've added a Christmas crate to Skyblock 2!
It's got a unique set of rewards, most of which are specific to the Holiday season.
You can receive keys by gambling your luck at two of the other crates, Candycane, and Donor, OR, you can go ahead and pick up some keys here!

Then head over to /crates and hope to win some awesome prizes!

Enjoy!
