GamerSafer is a mission-driven company that aims to provide a safe and fair play experience to millions of players worldwide. We work closely with gaming and Esports industry platforms as well as online communities to support them in offering proactive protection for players and cultivating integrity and trust. Minecraft servers have utilized our technology and tools, and our team has been actively engaged with the Minecraft community since 2011. Building the Official Minecraft Server List presents a unique opportunity for us to deliver our mission to a community that we are deeply involved with and passionate about.
7. What is the process for servers to be publicly listed on the site?
We welcome all servers to apply and register for our site! Each server application will be reviewed for Minecraft Usage Guidelines compliance before receiving their first Badges and being added to public listings and search results. All servers listed on the site are also required to make sure their content is appropriate for all ages of players to enjoy, have their own community rules published, a public contact email for players or parents to reach out to if needed, and complete a short workbook to ensure the server is following basic community and safety practices
By completing these required steps, Minecraft servers will achieve their first two required Badges: Community Basics and Builder’s Benchmark. Once they are awarded those two Badges, the server will appear in search results, and may even be invited to be shown in special callout sections of the website.
Servers may also achieve one, several, or many optional Badges to show off on their page so that players know what kinds of experiences they can expect when they join. Achieving these optional Badges might help the server rank higher in search results but are not required to be listed on the site.
8. Who approves the servers that apply to be listed?
GamerSafer performs the initial reviews of servers that apply. These reviews are done with the official Minecraft Usage Guidelines and other resources as guidance, and GamerSafer may contact servers to clarify specific items or help them meet certain criteria before approval. After these initial reviews are completed and the server is prepared for public listing, GamerSafer will notify Mojang Studios of the server’s status. Mojang Studios will give their final review at that time and may contact the server directly for any Minecraft Usage Guidelines compliance concerns or questions.
9. Why are you using Server Badges to sort and filter servers?
are a great way to reward and recognize Minecraft server communities that show a strong dedication to the values of the website. With a diverse set of millions of monthly active Minecrafters worldwide, some players may not be looking for servers with the highest player counts or votes, but all of them deserve to have a chance to find high quality servers to join. Players may use the advanced search options to filter and find servers based on other aspects such as player count, vote count, launch date, keywords, and more.
