Here's a game you folks may have fond memories of.


But yes, Blockland is a brick based building sandbox where you play with virtual LEGOs and build various things such as houses, bases, castles, cities.... etc. created by Eric "Badspot" Hartman. The game has been around since it's alpha stages in 2004 predating ROBOLX (2006) and Minecraft (2009) by a few good chunk of years. Like many online games in the 2000s, It too has a forum which has a very "unique" history of the community and the people that used to or are currently playing Blockland. As someone who has played the game and still do time to time I can say that the community is a very colorful one at that. I can't bring up most of the stuff that happened on the forums but thankfully a friend of mine who is both a well known member and a veteran of the community has made a thread listing all of the events that went down in the forums and it's still being updated to this day.

Oh one more thing, in a drama a long while back Badspot had temporally disabled forum registration but also tied people's account to their BL_ID (Blockland ID) meaning if you get banned from the site, you're gone no second chances. This lead into the creation of this thread here.




To keep this in line with the board here (as requested by the site owner), to those who have played Blockland or experienced with the community, what are your most cherished memories on Blockland? For me it was finding the most outlandish names, usually something crude, raunchy, or offensive in the Unlimited Mining server due to the ability to find your own ore and being able to rename it to something else. Another found memory was participating a massive summer build project with my friends where I was able to build a house for myself. Here's a few pics to get the memories jogging, one being the famous Bedroom map and the rest mostly videos being from versions prior to v21 while also posting some screenshots from stuff I've built on the current version of Blockland (v21)

A very famous Blockland Tennis video series that was the talk in the community long ago.

Had no idea what game you were talking about until I saw that first screenshot of the bedroom map and the memories came flooding back.

Care to share some memories my good man? PepSiDawgwitcan
Wish I could think of any, this stuff was when I was waaaaay too small to still have any memories floating around. Most I can remember is just hanging out in that bedroom map and trying to figure out the controls DKFail

その時代の多くのフォーラムはタイムカプセルのようなものです。それらは当時の感情、目標、野心を反映しています。フォーラムの人々は、琥珀色の塊の蚊のように書かれた形で凍結されたままです。何年も後にそれらを閲覧するのは楽しいです。以前はたくさんのフォーラムに投稿していましたが、現在はほとんどが閉鎖されています。スクリーンショットを撮ることは常に重要です

I unfortunately joined around the time maps were removed so I never played much but I frequented the forums and enjoyed the fuck out the drama board, funniest shit. Everyone always seemed to be at someone's throat and the arguments back and forth were nothing but marvelous.
