Default An Earth Hour challenge

Tonight is World Earth Hour. Most people who participate spend 8.30-9.30pm (their time zone) using as little electrical power as possible. For some, this means turning off all lights. For others, that means all but the most vital equipment like fridges is turned off.

Now I know that some of you can't bear the thought of turning off your PCs and not playing Mindcrack (or if you are in NZ, you have already had Earth Hour). So I am issuing a little Minecraft challenge that can be done on either of our servers.

The challenge is that for one hour
  • you start with an empty inventory
  • you don't use any existing buildings or tools
  • you don't kill any animals, including monsters
  • for Mindcrack, you don't use electricity or any other power source
  • you don't die
Sounds simple? Well for those of you who want things harder, here is some optional additional conditions

  • you can't eat

for those who are interested Earth hour is described in this link here

I for one will not participate, I have a firm stand against Earth Hour, but I fully encourage all whom support Earth Hour to participate in the event.

I'm with you on that, in my opinion it's a missplaced gimmick. But yeah, it's not like I think less of anyone who do participate, so good luck with that you all

Whether you think Earth Hour is just useless symbolism or a powerful message, this challenge is just an excuse to try something "different" in Minecraft. Since Earth Hour was yesterday (to me) and I left posting the message too late (mainly because I hadn't thought of it), you are welcome to try the challenge some other time.
