First, you must have a Premium Minecraft account that you can buy at Minecraft.net
There are 3 ways you can log in ... read here
The password you get from method (1) is your master password.
The master password will always work even if you forget your minebook password.
This password expires so you must check back anytime you want to use it.
Q: If I log in with my Minecraft.net username and password do you save it anywhere?
We only use it temporarily to see if your credentials are correct, similar to how the Minecraft.net client does it.
Q: Why does everyone already have an account?
We only add an account if someone first searches for them or someone attempts to log in. Otherwise we don't know if an account is valid or not.
Q: How do I know if someone has logged into Minebook?
They will have a badge next to their name in their profile that looks like grass. This is awarded to any users that join during the Alpha stage.
Q: How do I advertise?
The only way to advertise is through Project Wonderful
We will sometimes make deals with large servers (free VIP, free server profile pages). If you do have a popular server (20+ people on at a time) you should contact us. https://minebook.me/c/contactus
Q: I'm getting a 'SS.. Creeper Exploded' or any other weird error message.
Probably a problem on our end (or sometimes happens if Minecraft.net is down). Please contact us and let us know about the problem.
Q: How do I change my profile picture?
If you update your skin on Minecraft.net the changes will appear on Minebook in about an hour. To browse a list of great skins you can hover above your profile image and click 'Change Skin'. You can also use any image on Minebook that is a skin (64px x 32px and of type png) by clicking Options -> Upload to Minecraft.net when viewing a photo. For a full-body skin you must be VIP.
Q: How come my character's face is white or not correct?
When we generate your full bodied character skin we always put a helm over your face. Sometimes a character doesn't have a helm; this happens a lot and most people are fine.
If you are having problems this means your character doesn't have a helm and the image background is white. You need to make the background of your skin transparent and there are many tutorials in doing so.
Q: What are experience points and how do I gain them?
Experience points are rewarded when people rate you (using the hearts under your profile picture) or 'Mine' your photos.
These points are important for a few reasons:
- In the future there will be server plugins that have a minimum level requirement when joining
- Grief reports don't count towards you if you are higher level than the person who reported you
- It shows your participation in Minebook.me and makes you look cool
Q: How do I know how I got the experience points?
Hover your mouse above the experience bar.

Click 'Edit my Profile' under your picture. If you are VIP you have more customization options than others.

Q: How do I see who reported me for grief?
While logged in you can hover your mouse above the 'reported for grief' section.
Please remember: what you see while logged in is ALL grief reports. Not all of these reports count. What other people see and therefore are valid grief reports are only reports by people higher level than you.

There are few steps you can take to edit your server config: query.port= <must be the same as server-port> enable-query=true server-port=25565 UDP ENABLED
Your server needs to be queried successfully at least once. In other words, it must be online at least once.

Q: Why are there more than one servers pointing to the same server page?
We group servers together based on IP. If the server's IP changes a new server page is made for you.
Images and shouts are still carried with it.
Q: How does server browsing order the results?
If you sort by 'Points' it is based on the number of votes for photos linked to the server AND (number of votes for a server * 2).
All others are pretty self-explanatory.
Q: How are scores calculated when I vote for a server?
The amount of points a server receives depends on your Minebook level.
It is calculated by taking the log(2) of your level (rounded up).
For example, a level 200 person will have 8 points to give for EVERY vote given
Anyone less than level 3 will have only 1 point to give
Q: How do I set up votifier on Minebook?
This can be set once you log in for the first time in minebook. This is your own password for minebook and can be changed anytime by you.
