Chilled out, friendly Minecraft server
Itchy Dog is a LGBTQA Friendly Minecraft Server
When I set up Itchy Dog, I just wanted to make a server where people could hang out and enjoy a game together without having to deal with bigotry, egos or just plain dick-headery. I'm pleased to say that our regular players and staff are united on this front and any form of harassment is quickly stamped out meaning that Itchy Dog is a chilled and relaxed place to play Minecraft.
You might wonder why we're even making a fuss out of this; well, here's the thing. We've had new players ask whether it's OK for someone who identifies as LGBT to join the server, and for some people, having to ask that in public can be a big deal. We've had other players join, who have kept their personalities hidden for fear of how others will react (and let's face it, prejudice is all too common in online communities). Then there's the issue of certain terms coming up in general chat that people can find offensive.
So, what I'm saying here, is that Itchy Dog is a welcoming and inclusive server and we have an absolute zero tolerance policy for any type of harrassment or bigotry. I think our first Server Rule sums up our attitude quite nicely:
"Be respectful of people.- no discrimination (racist, homophobic comments or sexual harassment will get you permanently banned). If you cannot abide by this rule then leave now."
You know what? I don't think anything sums it up quite so well as these video reviews of Itchy Dog by our very own Guantou.
These were posted back in January 2012, just after she'd joined, and the only things that are different now, are that we've changed the format of the server rules page and grief protection is much more sophisticated these days.
Anyway, take a look, and then maybe drop in the game as a guest or even post in the forum to get full access.
