      The Wall Post Weekly
      December 2nd, 2018

      Happy weekend and December 2nd! As you can see, the site theme is now WINTER and we hope everyone is enjoying all of the little icicles, snow, and feel of the site! It technically isn't Winter yet (December 21st is the official date!) but we're close enough – with snow, freezing temperatures & all of those fun winter-y things (in some parts of the country). We've been planning and preparing the themes, activities, and other little surprises for December, and we're excited for the weeks to come!


      Have you seen this adorable little pixel penguin waddling around? No? Well if you haven't, it's because Topper randomly appears, just like their predecessor Batty. Please be patient. You have an entire month to meet!

      Shout out to BIO,
      the artist behind Topper and Cyprezz for programming them to life! If you have any EMOTE ideas for Topper, comment below!

      MORE updates to collections!
      You can now pop out the Collections Manager pane (just like you can with the color picker in PMCSkin3D)! You can move the pane anywhere you want and it will stay when refreshing the page & browsing the site.

      • You can now right click any folder to create a new folder or collection in that folder instead of going all way to top of the collections manger.
      • You can now move multiple collections to another folder at once. Use ctrl + click to select multiple collections
      • You can move items from one collection to another. Right+Click item to see "Move to..." option
      • You can copy items from one collection to another. Right+Click itme to see "Copy to..." option
      • You can delete items from a collection by right clicking and selecting "Delete"
      • Added "Delete" confirmation dialog to prevent accidental oops.
      • You can delete items from a collection on it's full page view while sorting by "Collector Order". Simply drag and drop an item into the dirt background / outside of the collection layout.

      Winter Wonderland Community Event
      We did it again! The Halloween Community Event was so successful that we decided to have another! To celebrate the season of Winter, the event theme is Winter Wonderland! Turn on some Holiday music, grab a cup of warm cocoa and create something winter-y to contribute to this festive occasion!

      If you participated in the Halloween Community Event, you know the deal. You can make anything you want, as long as it fits the theme! If you need a refresher on all of the rules and details (or if you're new and don't know how Community Events work) please visit the Event Page. We're looking forward to seeing what you all come up with and hope you have fun!

      Robot Skin Contest
      Congratulations to the finalists in the Robot Skin Contest! We're currently in the final judging process and hope to be wrapping up soon.


      for DinowCookie's Secret Santa Event are open until December 5th! What a FUN way to celebrate the Holidays!

      TsukiaKari is celebrating their 400 sub milestone by hosting a small Community Event that includes a skin raffle, community skin, and skin contest. Head over and check it out! You could be the one who wins a skin of your choice from them!

      The Wall Post Weekly

      A happy late Thanksgiving to the U.S. Members & a happy weekend to everybody! We read everyone's responses to our previous Wall Post Weekly. It sounds like there are some lucky people who didn't get a speck of snow, while others faced flight cancellations! Enough with the chitter chatter, let's get down to business!


      BATTY: In case you missed it, you now have the ability to "dismiss" Batty. Simply Go to your Profile and click on Batty! You'll have the option to "Dismiss for Now" (see image below). Batty will relocate to your Trophy Case! You can summon Batty back to your profile by going to your Trophy Case, and hitting the blue "Summon" button.

      MORE updates to collection management!

      You have the option to Move or Copy an item in a collection to another collection directly from the collection management panel! Just right click on the item you want to move or copy!

      Grid View:

      You can also Create a new Folder or Collection by right-clicking on the folder you want to create it in! Easy Peasy:

      • Manage Collections : collections ordered alphabetically.
      • "Make Wall Post" button added to /posts/
      • Updated Mobile Detection to latest devices
      • Fixed bug where main navigation appeared over the widget manager.
      • More optimizations for mobile.
      • Many features added to new upcoming section(s)

      We're working on a couple of things for the Month of December. Stay tuned!


      There are 2 more days left to submit an entry for the Robots Skin Contest! There are 309 entries! As Romto_ pointed out in their wall post, the last time we broke 300 entries in a skin contest was back in November of 2016 when there were 350 entries in the Magic Skin Contest! Woo! Do you think we can break the 350?!


      There is 1 DAY LEFT in snowylemons
      Reshade Contest "Sisters"!

      Sign-ups for Chiaroscuro's writing contest - Season 3 - are still open! There are only 2 spots left! Details can be found on the Sign-Up Page!

      The Wall Post Weekly

      Happy FRIDAY PMCer's! Did it snow where you are? Enough to make a snowman or cancel school? Here's a summary of this week on PMC!


      Updates!! The most noticeable update was the new nav bar, XP bar, and PMC Logo in the header. It may appear that these changes are the only updates on the site... but they're not!

      Cyprezz explains:

      "There was a pile of improvements all over the site that had nothing to do with the site theme and physical changes. For example, I integrated 'lazy loading' of images which should speed up the site on both mobile and desktop - saving bandwidth for us and you!"

      The Logo Before and After

      The Header: Logo, Navigation, Notification Tabs & XP Bar
      You can read more about the update in replies to questions on his wall, which you can view here.

      There were many updates to the Collections system! We also updated the Collections Tutorial, which includes new, detailed explanations, newly added GIFs, updated photos, and more! Let us know if we missed anything by commenting on the tutorial page!

      Another major update was with PMCSkin3D! Did anyone notice that you can now edit ANY MOB?! Chicken, Cows, Dolphins, Sheeps, Squid, and SO many more. Only player model textures can be published.....for now. wink. Simply launch PMCSkin3D, select " File > NewSkin ". Click on the drop-down menu (Steve is pre-selected) and choose your mob! Easy peasy!

      One final thing. Remember Batty? Chances are, Batty's still hanging around your profile but you now have the ability to "dismiss" Batty, relocating Batty to your Trophy Case! You can summon Batty by going to your Trophy Case, and hitting the blue "Summon" button. Batty will re-appear on your profile!


      October's Official Contest Results wrapped up. Congratulations to the winners! Results are summarized below, but be sure to check out the final leaderboards to see some spooky, fun and festive entries!

      Every extra special thing we've done on the site this month is because of this Holiday, and it's finally here! Let's recap the eventful month!


      One of the most noticeable special spoops was the site theme! Bats, leaves, pumpkin-orange buttons.. oh my! Along with the appropriate site theme, a lot of members decorated their personal profile in cobwebs, creepy-crawlers, and spooky scary skeletons. We really enjoyed seeing everyone's profile transform! So festive and creative! The orange buttons and leaves aren't going anywhere just yet - they'll stick around through the fall season!


      The FIRST ever non-competitive Community Event was successful, to say the least! The Halloween Community Event wrapped up yesterday and we are impressed by the quality and number of submissions and support you have given each other! Head on over to check out the Event Summary which includes a few featured submissions! We appreciate all of the hard work and effort you put into the event and needless to say, it won't be the last of its kind. Pat yourselves on the back and give each other high fives! Special thanks to DinowCookie for helping host and coordinate the event!

      We'd also like to hear your thoughts on the event as well as see your favorite entries! Share with us on the official Halloween Community Event thread


      Let's talk about the friendly phantom creature that's been hanging around randomly – BATTY! Many of you have already found Batty, and if you haven't, don't fret! You still have the rest of today to find Batty, and it should be easier because it's Halloween and it's Batty's favorite Holiday!

      Here are some fun Stats about Batty!

      Fun Fact: Batty wasn't in our original plans for the month, but when the seed was planted it grew and we're happy Batty was well received! Batty feels very welcomed and thanks to the community for being so friendly!

      Batty showed up 22,205 times for members only!
      15,428 members saw but never claimed Batty!

      Top 3 Members who found Batty the most:

      Nasu 20 times
      Fellanchicken 19 times

      Third place was a tie between:
      Chiaroscuro 16 times
      Woodstockk 16 times


      In addition, our official Laboratory Experiments Skin Contest received 240 entries & is currently in the judging phase! There were some beautiful and unique creations & equally original stories along with them. The Pumpkin Carving Contest JUST entered the review phase which means there's still time to look over the entries and diamond your favorites to ultimately determine the finalists!

      Alongside our official community events & contests were 6 unofficial Halloween themed events & challenges hosted by your fellow PMC friends.

      November will be a little quieter than October, but be prepared when December rolls around....!

      PS If you read all of this, THANK YOU! Have a Happy Halloween and stay spoopy!

    Cast your vote for the next Minecraft Skin contest theme which will start in the month of December!

    Review the ideas below and remember to vote for the one you like the best, not the one you think is going to win!

    5 Elements

    - There are 4 classic elements, earth, water, air and fire. There's a lesser known / accepted element called aether added by Aristotle. Aether is also called quintessence or the material that fills the region of universe above the terrestrial sphere. In this contest, you would choose one or more of the 5 elements to inspire your skin!

    Aztecs & Egyptians

    - Two of the most fascinating civilizations of this world have inspired and perplexed modern minds in countless ways. Let their cultures inspire your mind to create a relevant Minecraft skin!

    Historical Splendour

    - Imagine the beauty, pomp and circumstance of past times and create a skin according to that. May it be an Egyptian king or queen, a medieval prince or princess or a lady or lord in a baroque gown. Consider also different options, while displaying royalty and their court would be one, different times also had interesting ways of adorning soldiers and warfare like knights with elaborate armour or soldiers in brightly coloured uniforms. Your skin should unveil the grandiosity of past countries, cultures and periods.

    DawnBringer's 32 Color Palette (DB32)

    - Palette restriction with the intention to inspire creativity. You'll be restricted to colors in the famous DB32 color palette. What you do with the palette will be up to you. If you've never used a color palette before, this is a great one to start with! Original creator & more information here.

    Dance Off

    - Musical tastes are as diverse as the sources of inspiration during it's creation. Make a skin that relates to music whether it's by genre, lifestyle, celebrity or culture. Let the music flow through your Minecraft Skin or into your ears at least. Either way, dance party and/or head banging is encouraged. Show us what you got!

    City Life

    - The city's alive with the hustle and bustle of hundreds of thousands of people! From the frequenters of a trendy coffee-shop on the corner, to the diligent crew of construction workers keeping the metropolis in shape, and everything between, create someone (or something!) that calls the city its home!

    Fashion Show
    - Fashion comes in all styles but they all try to make a statement. Dress up your skin for a fashion show! It doesn't have to be for a glamorous event red carpet event. It might be your own fashion for that matter. Use the description to explain the statement your fashionable skin is trying to make!


    - If it weren't for those meddling kids, I would have gotten away with it! It's time to pull off those masks and show who was really behind the deed. Make a skin that makes use of the hat layer to disguise what's underneath.

    Scrapyard Creations

    - One mans trash is another mans treasure. Create a skin using scrap parts from the junkyard. Piece it together with objects you might find thrown away only to find themselves part of something great!

    Norse Mythology

    - Norse mythology is the body of myths of the North Germanic peoples stemming from Norse paganism and continuing after the Christianization of Scandinavia and into the Scandinavian folklore of the modern period. The northernmost extension of Germanic mythology, Norse mythology consists of tales of various deities, beings, and heroes derived from numerous sources from both before and after the pagan period, including medieval manuscripts, archaeological representations, and folk tradition. Learn more here.

    This poll will run for about a week. Get your votes in!

    Information on past contests and all of their participants can be found here!
