    Hello! For those who don't know me, I go by Bunny. I used to frequent this server when I was younger and I have been apart of this community for over 7 years (crazy, I know). There has been many ups and downs, but this server has such a rich history that I feel isn't very well documented, and I'd like to change that.

    I'm planning on making a throwback video, trying to summarize the history of the Skyblock.net server and I need your help! The forums are a very large place to look for information, which is mainly why I'm requesting help.

    It's difficult to put together a timeline, so if you guys have any solid dates of significant events or just things that have happened in the server's history, or just a rough estimate of when things have happened, it would be greatly appreciated. Screenshots or videos of old warps or anything is helpful as well.

    Any sources will be helpful and if it's helpful to the video, you will be credited.

    Comment below or dm me on discord (SkyDwag#9301)!

    I have photos of when we first updated to 1.7 and pets were added back. I have thousands of screenshots from my time here xD I’ll have to check

    This is such a good idea! I really can't wait to see it. I will try to think back of anything I have pictures from on like 2017 classic or any particular dates of things I remember. Good luck with it!

    If you can find it, I'd be very thankful! The only video I could find that was similar to this was when someone did /newisland and it ended up near spawn, and a lot of people kept dying :hah:

    Thanks! If you can find anything of just old warps, or from significant events, it would be very helpful!

    Thank you both! I actually found a old thread made by you PC, that apparently was some sort of evolution video, but it was unavailable for me to watch.
    Lovely! Looking forward to the contribution.
    Thanks! It will probably take a few weeks, but I hope it turns out well.

    I actually found that video while scrolling through every. single. mention. of skyblock.net on youtube. It will probably get a few seconds, but I'm still not sure exactly of how small of events I'll include in the video.

    Thank you all for your willingness to help so far! Again, feel free to dm me on here or discord (SkyDwag#9301).

    More of the side of events/throwbacks, if you guys remember any from the days of like 2012-2016ish, I would love it. I know about drop parties and such, along with the releases and resets of servers, but I'm in need of "filler" events per say. (example, like when spawn lost protection, like Drogo said). Once again, thank you all! I'm very excited for this video.

    A few little contributions from me, the first one is quite an obvious one I think but thought I'd share it anyway in case you didn't have it!

    The new /skyblock server was announced on July 4th 2017 via this thread from Cyp Skyblock Official Site | Skyblock

    Legendary keys first became a thing sometime around early/mid March 2017. I remembered being online when it was first announced (Cyp did it by randomly opening one which came up in chat and everyone was shocked) so I went back in my forums records and found posts where I talked about the introduction of the new key. Not sure how useful this rough date is to you but thought it might be cool! haha

    I will also try and dig my old laptop up, I have a feeling I might have some screenshots in my .minecraft folder on there. Whether I can that old toaster to actually turn on is another question, but I can give it a shot :')

    I don't think I ever made a proper video, more just snippets of different things that I did when I was a tiny 11 or 12 year old, but I might've linked a video which put together a bunch of different Skyblock player's videos.

    That old thread's good as it'll have all the things I liked on there, but there's a lot more screenshots I have saved on both my computer and phone that I haven't republished (as they're not my own), so again, add me & msg me so I can share these with you

    I also have incomplete full rebuilds of a few different warps (/visit 2015Spawn and /visit OGSkybase)

    I'll be sure to add that in! I've also been scouring through all of my old screenshots (honestly might make a thread of some old and funny moments). Thank you for the contribution!

    Thanks! I'll visit some of those islands once I get to recording (also thank you for the help on discord :p).

    Perfect! If you have anything to add, feel free to say anything on here, make a conversation with me, or add me on discord (SkyDwag#9301).


    I mean... I'm not gonna say he wasn't a partial inspiration for this project :p This server does deserve some sort of tribute and I'll do my best in it lol

    Once again, thank you all for the contributions! Admittedly I haven't been working on the video much of this past week, but I do have a partial script and I've been digging through a lot of my old screenshots (there. are. so. many.) I'll be working on it more soon, but considering I have a very poor sleep schedule, I'll aim for around the 4th of July?
    More updates to follow :p

    I love this, I'll try to dig around forums at some point to see if there was any defining points since I've been around.

    I remember he shouted at me on his live stream once whilst he was raiding skyblock because I insulted him : (

    bit of an update:

    got like 2 pages of script done (yes, I know it's short)
    been having some difficulty getting events in chronological order, but I will call upon my writing expertise

    I'm planning on hunting through my old computer for some og screenshots this week, but if you guys have any I'd love to see them! or if you have any threads that have a lot of screenshots, that would be helpful as well

    thank you all <3z

    update 2: I got my old computer out and somethin must've happened, because there's only 1 screenshot from 2017, so rip those I guess
