Since (I assume) you agree that Boom looks like Tom Holland, do you think there should be a Spiderboom/Boomerman movie? And if yes, which of those titles do you think fits the best?

hello Dacon,
I was just wondering, the fly perk on parkour from the Canada Chest that allows you to fly in spawn / lounge, so will you just disable it when spawn parkour comes back or will you just do something to still let people fly in spawn and lounge but not spawn parkour?
Thank you...

- Will Survival be updated to 1.16 on, before, or after S7(or do you know)
- How many people have asked you things they should have asked other players about or looked up on the wiki ;P (in thousands if you prefer)
- Definitely by S7, maybe before though
- trillions

Dacon, how did you like the elections and your loss?
What inspired you to create manacube?
where did the name come from?
- what loss? i won fairly and not rigged at all
- server i played on shut down
- it was originally going to be a 2nd magic themed network back in 2015 but I never got around to finishing it. Then end of 2016 I wanted to rebrand minevast and loved to use that name. Funny thing, I had bought the domain for $19, but let it expire and had to pay $5k to get it back a year later from one of those domain reseller sites.... >.<

Hello Dacon!
I have a few questions:

- Why did you change the name of the server from Minevast to Manacube?
- Will there ever be coinflips on parkour?
- Do you ever feel overwhelmed with owning the server by yourself?
- Wouldn't having 6 champ maps on parkour be too OP? That would be around 18-24k mana each week (or 42k every 2 weeks)!!!

Thank you for going out of your way to answer all of these questions on the forums! :D
- We were going to partner with some youtubers and they wanted a fresh name, I also liked the idea of rebranding with a more theme-able name
- Yes
- It can be overwhelming sometimes but I have an awesome team that takes care of so much
- May have to rebalance it or limit how many champ maps u can do in a day

What was the process of making the server and how did it get popular?
We have a full history section coming very soon on our wiki, will post in discord when released :)


What happened to the witch class in Olympus trials? It's a rebirth reward but hasn't worked since at least season 2.
will be added with upcoming ancient trials update

Oh god please no

Sorry for like the umpteenth question I put on this thread but might as well - my thought processes aren't exactly predictable

- Is the End going to be reset before S7? making a large alien-world outpost and want to know if it's gonna get yeeted or if it's safe for the season.

- [If you want to] What do you think of my skin? been getting conflicting opinions on it some hate it some like it but I spent far too much time on it :p | [Front] | [Back] | [PC go boom version] |

Thanks! <3

Any ETA on when you'll be able to take a bit more care of Skyblock? Both Aztec and Oasis have been really low priority, and with Factions and Survival reset I can understand it, but any sort of timeframe in which Skyblock can be maintained and whenever we can get the fastplace perk fixed, along with sword enchants and trials, would be really nice.

Do we have any information on the islands reset? It has been dead for a good couple of months now and is in dire need of reset. Will it be completely revamped like skyblock and survival? Will all infinity chest on every server slowly be changed to the new one introduced in survival? (with timed sells). Is w/e a fixable problem for the admins on skyblock or is a problem in the plugin? Who wins in a fight a chicken or a penguin? :D

What do you think of adding 'Feature Friday' back, but instead of it being its own thing, adding it to the monthly announcement post?

1. How do you think having a dev team to make custom plugins has helped manacube move forward?
2. What tips do you have for an aspiring server owner?
3. Eclipse or IDEA (or something else)? manacube uses idea
4. Ik this one's probably confidential so answer or don't: what server hardware do y'all use?
Followup: if you're a hardware guy, what hardware do you recommend for a mainstream server?

manacube uses rental hosting

5. What's your favorite food lol
6. What server(s) (within manacube) do you enjoy playing the most?

ty dacon, have a great day :)

Good day to you dacon !
