The Minecraft Forums is the official community forum for Minecraft.[1] It was created on June 16, 2009 by community member citricsquid and has continued to be operated by the community, with Mojang having no involvement in day to day operations (although some Mojang employees have accounts on the site).

In September 2010 Redstone Wire Ltd was formed[2] to manage the site, and on November 15, 2010, the site was acquired by Curse,[3] who now own and help operate the site. The forum software used is IP.Board.

The forum serves as a hub for the Minecraft community with game modifications, custom maps, servers and texture packs all being shared. Registration to the site is free and anyone with or without a Minecraft account is allowed to use the site.

Forum administration is managed by citricsquid and PuyoDead and the forum moderation team is made up of over 100[4] volunteers. Community members are encouraged to apply to be a moderator.[5]

The site front page provides news, videos, interviews, contests and articles, relating to Minecraft, Mojang and the Minecraft community in general. The front page news is managed by Sacheverell with some videos coming from the Curse Youtube channel.
