Greetings, and happy 8 year anniversary to AvatarMC!

After hours of tirelessly digging through the archives of servers long gone, stacks of logs long forgotten, and Reddit threads filled with hype of questionable justification, we have reconstructed a timeline of the birth of the public beta.

A few minutes after midnight UTC on January 17, 2015, the server restarted and the floodgates opened. Within seconds, AvatarMC filled up with players eager to play on the official Minecraft server of r/TheLastAirbender, all excited to try something new following the conclusion of The Legend of Korra.

Since then, this project has come a long way. In the first few weeks, the world was scaled up, factions made way for Towny, and we introduced our first custom made plugins. Since then, we haven't stopped improving — adding new features, game mechanics and interactive experiences.

To celebrate this occasion and take a stroll down memory lane, we are holding a screenshot raffle!

Here are the rules:

  • Venture out across the world to capture your favorite parts of the server, OR upload an older image from the past eight years of your favorite memory. This can include anything that summarizes any positive experience while being part of the AvatarMC community.
  • You may share as many screenshots as you'd like, but at least one of these images must have been taken by you in order to qualify for the raffle. Please indicate if any photos were not taken by you. Although not a requirement, we encourage you to share a fun story about your image!
  • As long as you have entered at least one photo taken by you, you will receive a single entry into the raffle. Posting multiple screenshots will not improve your chances of winning.
  • All screenshots must be shared in #event-8th-anniversary on Discord.

The event will run from January 16–22. A randomly selected player from the raffle pool will win a gift card worth 20 USD to the server store!
