Begin A New Adventure!

Coming soon, a new Minecraft experience!

Dear Administrators

My name is Kris I'm 15 and live in the UK. This is my application for Minpile's Closed Beta. I am applying because I am interested in this style of game and Minecraft especially and I think that I could be very helpful in a closed beta environment. I have been playing Minecraft since its beta and and know the game inside out.

I have experience in playing MMORPGs (some even Minecraft based) and I have participated in many public testing programs and I have developed good skills in finding and reporting bugs, errors, flaws, etc in a professional and timely manor.

I have lots of experience playing games and from this I have learned what makes a good game and what makes a bad game. I can use this knowledge to help you when developing the game and I can create feature requests of my own that I believe will benefit the game and make it an even moire enjoyable experience for everyone.

I enjoy creating silly programs (example: http://pastebin.com/44WYy0X1) and so have lots of experience finding and fixing errors in programs. I am also quite musical, I play the violin I am very enthusiastic about it. I am also very hardworking during school but we're on summer break now so I have more time to spend on other things.
I built my own PC and I have attached my DxDiag (system configuration information) if it is somthing you'd like to take a peak at.

Thank you for taking the time to review my application, I hope you take me into consideration and have a wonderful day.

Yours faithfully,
- Kris (IGN: MyriadCx)
Hello, my name is Jordan. I mostly mess with the hardware side of technology but have been getting into software lately. I've played Minecraft for about three years and have played on many rpg servers. I have also played many mmo's, rpg's and mmorpg's. I have participated in many Beta game projects sending information on bugs and features that might be a good addition to the game. I am very interested in MilePile and would love to join in on the fun. Looks like this will be a great server.

Hello, I'd like to join in on the servers development and help to the best of my abilities. I have owned Minecraft since it was in a beta stage. You know when there wasn't any food bar, or when you couldn't sprint and were stuck at a slow moving pace trying to run from spiders. I'm fairly active even if I'm not on Minecraft. I have some experience in RPG games, but i would say definitely NOT an expert. I have tested servers for bugs/exploits before. I could say everything i could try to do to improve the server to help it progress, but i think the best way would be for me to prove it. Thanks for reading/considering, until next time!
I would like to apply for open beta of the minepile rpg. I have had years of experience with multiple types of mmorpg games and I believe I would make appropriate suggestions for the server. I am very effective at finding any bugs which the server may have and I will try my best to contribute to the minepile community. I am an outgoing person and I get along with everyone.
I've played minecraft since around beta 1.6, and have since then been consistently playing. I played in closed beta DR, and ever since it shutdown I've been looking for a server that can offer a similar, or perhaps even better experience. I believe, after hearing about this server from my friend Anfun, that this server truly can become better even than Dungeon Realms. I hope to be able to join this server and help make it the best it can possibly be.

First wanted to talk to the server so enjoyed seeing the video of your post (https://goo.gl/zNcP3H) that left me with a huge, inexplicable urge to want to play on your server, I am Brazilian and already played several rpgs, as tibia was one of the first passeis several years playing WoW, also I played D&D Online, skyrim and the list goes on, but I have not time to talk about all rpgs I played haha, already in minecraft rpg servers already played in various also and so was the one I liked, so the famous and now is dead DungeonRealms, I saw the video and your server reminded me a lot DungeonRealms it hit a giant will be able to play, my name is Luke have 14 years do 15 in November I hope to be accepted into the Beta, and remembering if I accept and like (probably by the video I saw'll like yes) I will call my friends to play, since most like quite RPG.

Hello there, I am @CaveyJ from the MinePile RPG development team. I am happily here to announce that there is now a live development server.

Access to the development server requires either:

We are accepting pre-alpha tester applications from those who will work hard to help us find flaws and bugs within the game. The ideal candidate will also be an active member on the forums!

Hope to see you on soon, have a nice day! :D
