Hi! Welcome to Cox's Blocks, a Minecraft: Java Edition server.

Do By Friday is a weekly challenge show hosted by Merlin Mann, Alex Cox, and Max Temkin. You can listen to it here.

This server is run by Merlin, Alex, Max, and Matt Enloe for the Do By Friday community.

Joining the community

You can join the server by typing "coxblocks.rocks" in the Multiplayer menu of your Minecraft: Java Edition client. You can use the "Direct Connect" option, but we recommend using "Add Server" to permanently add the server to your server bookmarks list. The server is running Java 1.15.2.

This server also runs Geyser, a proxy that allows Minecraft: Bedrock Edition clients to join. However, your experience connecting with a Bedrock client may be buggy. If possible, we recommend playing using Java Edition.

You can chat with the Do By Friday community on our Discord server. Click here for a Discord invite.

We have a few rules we'd like you to follow on the server:

Matt has run his own personal Minecraft server as a hobby since 2010. It has a bunch of custom content and features, like worlds, monsters, items, quests, and magic spells. You can read about it here, view the live map here, and connect to it using the IP mc.summaxr.com. You can connect using versions 1.12.2 and above of Java Edition, but the server runs on 1.12.2, and using newer versions may be buggy.
