JannerVille can be found by following the skyroad south from Caverns for appoximately 5km, until you hit the city wall. Though originally created for defensive purposes, the wall is now an obsolete border line marking the pearly gates of JannerVille.

Story

The first four founders that made the harsh journey across the plains of Freedonia, were four brave, strong and heroic founders. They were; Arrongunner the great, Jjroome the wise, Amlabeard the strong and Ercadoo1989 the merciful. At first, the city had been built at a location near NewAtlanta , before the founders re-located for expansion. The first to leave the safe walls of old Jannerville were Arrongunner, Amlabeard and Ercadoo1989, leaving Jjroome behind, due to his offline state. Many casualties were suffered, including Ercadoo1989's "fall" off the skyroad, and later, Amlabeard who also "fell" from the skyroad, leading to losses in excess of 30 diamonds! Finally, the adventurers arrived at the site that became the JannerVille of today.

After a rapid growth of contributors, the town expanded dramatically to earn itself a warp on 27/5/11. Said warp has been superceded by the rail line link and phased out on February 4th, 2012 since, with the recent ragegrief-related bans of its founders it's no longer active enough to warrant a warp.

Top builds

Contributors

The early creation of Jannerville involved just 4 members;

  • Arrongunner
  • Jjroome
  • Amlabeard (Banned)
  • Ercadoo1989 (Banned)

However it now incorporates several great people that have helped make what this city is today. The buildings run from the amazing to the wacky. Aside to the four founders of the city, that have obviously had major contributions, residents who joined later on have been tremendous assets. This includes Pshot360's cosy mansion and Eperitus' creations, Bass Slayer's unfinished Germany build. A special thanks goes out to Modwes' talent for creation is unparalleled, as we see in his Cathedral. He is an imperrative asset to the team. We wish to see more breathtaking builds, like Ercadoo1989's boat, from the whole team in the near future.

Our team would like to see more people from the Minecraft community building and helping develop Jannerville further. If your builds are good, I'm sure you will get a mention in this wiki page.

We are TheNerdWorks and this is Jannerville!

Who are we?

In simple terms we are TheNerdWorks, we are a merry band of school kids from the UK that wish to spread Minecraft through our builds and videos. If you wish to check us out a little more, feel free to go onto our YouTube channel. Our main goal is to bring enjoyment and fun to the minecraft community. We prioritize on our videos and will soon be doing a video show you round our place if you haven't seen it already.

Trivia

  • We were the furthest warp away from Spawn. (NewHaven is now the farthest plus Jannerville is no longer a warp).
  • We have 12 contributors currently working on Jannerville.
  • The meaning of the word "Janner" is one known by few, discovered in early 2010, and used excessively throughout that year. The word derived from the west country meaning "friend" and was adopted by the team whilst playing fifa. In context, it can be used like "you janner" rather than "your my janner" although "me and my janners" is acceptable. This phrase was being used at its peak around the time of the creation of the first ever Jannerville which was a city founded on Arrongunner's private server and is the namesake of the current city
  • Did you know there are currently 3 existing Jannerville's? One on a private server, one located near NewAtlanta and the current warp location.
  • The 3rd Jannerville was originally called New Jannerville, but the "New" was dropped from the name when the idea of a warp was formed.

Current Projects

  • Modwes, Bass_Slayer and Eperitus are currently working on a new build, it's name unknown at present. It is situated South East of Jannerville. For more information about its location visit //minecraftonline.com/map/ [[1]].~
  • Proposed Nether Rail Project, put forward by Arrongunner. Intercity Travel will be up to 8X faster than convential Jannerville travel such as the Monorail. The proposed Nether Rail System will consist of a central hub in the nether connected by rail to Portals around the city all protected by fortified walls or underground bunkers. Travelling from destination A to B via portals its much more benificial. Planned Jannerville Portals are: The Warp temple, Deutschland, The Big Island and Distant travel to the above project. In addition , their is also talk that the team plan to make a passage in the Nether to Caverns and perhaps Old Jannerville. The task may seem unrealistic in terms of materials, distance and time, but with more contributors and perhaps the help of Caverns or NewAtlanta officials this task may acomplishable, and may help to forge relations between Jannerville and her closest neighbours.
  • There is also a new project that will be started in the near future, it is still being deliberated.

  • getplayerhead.sh?Epirutus&16.png Epirutus - A traveller who was rescued from the skyroad - after many hours spent roaming the lands, looking for companions. He was found to be a skilled miner and engineer, now finding resources and linking the world. After a few attempts at building a house he realised that it was not for him, as his house was quickly nicknamed "the worst building in town" by all, including himself. Currently Eperitus is working on a project with Bass_Slayer and modwes, where he spends time getting in the way and offering moral support - while not doing very much useful - although it must be noted that he is the brains of the group. [dubious]
  • getplayerhead.sh?Lothendal&16.png Lothendal - A brand new member, I am sure that his skill and experience will come in handy when expanding Jannerville to a new potential. He is currently on the Obsidian pack.

Points of Interest

Notable Events

On February 3rd 2012, Bass_Slayer showed up to appeal his grief ban in IRC, claiming that the Grief section of the wiki supported his claim that he should have been allowed to destroy a house within Jannerville's walls despite the fact that the unwwanted house was sitting on natural terrain and not touching any other part of Jannerville. He argued rabidly until he was exposed as the author of the wiki edits that supported his claim, edits made only minutes before he logged on to IRC. Upon bein exposed, he threatened to crash the server and was banned from IRC and the wiki permanently. His alternate account Ercadoo1989 then additionally griefed the Wiki heavily and was banned from the wiki and ingame and IRC and will NOT be permitted to appeal their bans in the future.

On February 4th, 2012, Amlabeard logged on, protested Bass_Slayer's ban, griefed intentionally, and was banned as well as a result.
