why hide your fire is for you

‘civilized survival’ is our bread & butter

We’re a civilized survival server. That means PvP is allowed. Harassment is not. Neither is griefing or hacking. You get respected to build what you want, how you want, and hang out with our pretty excellent community.

We humbly call this “Earth’s finest Minecraft server.”

griefers can’t ruin your game

We log every block change to a database, so we can roll back any griefs. This includes block damage, fire/water griefs, and damages to your crops & farm animals / pets.

We also use a locking plugin to prevent theft from chests, armor stands, furnaces, doors, you name it.

At some point we may introduce a thief class – when this happens, locking your chests may not be enough!

And these protections are on by default.

friendly, non-toxic community

Our community is small and friendly. But we’ll also leave you alone to play your game how you want to play it.

We’re almost always super welcoming and nice. Oh, and there’s no hate speech tolerated here – racism, ageism, nationalism, sexism, homophobia. That means you’re safe to just relax, and play. It’s smashing.

fine print


Founded in August 2010 when my 6 year old wanted to play on a server with other people. As of June 2021, that was almost 11 years ago. Holy smokes!

Hide Your Fire and the owner, ralphhogaboom, work closely with law enforcement. We hand over server logs, including IP addresses, whenever any threat, doxxing, or cyberbullying goes down. I have no problem calling your mom, either. I am entirely serious about this.

ranks / titles

Our rules are simple but firm.

  • No hate speech (racism, sexism, misogyny, transphobia, homophobia)
  • Watch the swears, muchacho
  • No griefing
  • No hacked clients / xray mods


All players have the rank of Player.

Players have permissions to build, lock doors and chests, have horses, view recipes (/recipe item_name), and more.

Players can use flint + steel, as well as lava buckets. Sleeping in a bed sets your respawn there (this may change if we increase difficulty); we do not use /back and /home commands.



Yes, we have that too.

The owner is ralphhogaboom. Send him an email if you have a question or need to get in touch.

Discord might be better, his is bitpost#8899.

Ban appeals rarely work, however. glhf
