We're done

Welp, Sherlock is doing his own thing now. So, I guess this is it. Sorry to keep you all on the edge of your seats for so very long. If I ever start up a server, you can find me on the Minecraft Forums. So long, farewell, and stop asking me to check your whitelist app. 

Also if you still want to RP, I suggest you try your hand at:

#1 Fantasy Minecraft Roleplay server, if you want to be an elf, human, orc, or even a halfling, go apply! I will be there and I believe a few other Sherlock applicants are there to. If you do join, PM me and say hi. 

See ya'!

Hey all... Been a long time since I have been on here... I have said sorry far to many times to make it matter anymore. Lark recently sent me a message and really gave me a new view on this whole situation. I have realized that this is an amazing group of players I have here. The idea was amazing and I want to make it a reality for us all. But I cant do this without you all. I need you all now more than ever. Here is my proposal.

The map is gone. All of it was destroyed by the hosting company when they sold the server. So here are the jobs I need to fill before we can restart construction. I will start a form for this topic right after I post this for you to apply for a job. See the forums.

1. Server host. This is most important. I we will require a dedicated 24/7 host that can work for little or no money. This is asking a lot but I swear if we can do this there will be benifits.

2. Builders. I need 5 dedicated people experienced with modern architecture.

3. Plugins Dev/Manager. Im not asking for a full out developer, I just need someone experienced with plugins who can alter minor things and right perms files. This job is crucial

4. 3 Admins. These are crucial to the way of the server and I need strong dedicated mature members.

Everyone I love you all. And I know I have broken more promises than I can count, but if you give me the chance to fix this I will. This is my final promise of dedication:

If All of the above jobs are filled, Sherlock City WILL Become a reaility. I Swear.

Application format:

Minecraft Name:

How long have you been a member of this comunity:

Age: (14+)


Experience In Role Play:

Experience Specific to  job:

Desired Job: (Only one please)

Pictures, Recomendations of others, Or anything else you want me to know:

Thank you all so much.


Regarding the server...

Posted by Lark on January 27, 2013 at 4:40 PM Comments comments (19)

Recently a member of Sherlock City notified me of some odd activity of our rightoues owner Sherlock. It seems Sherlock has applied to another roleplaying server. Adding into this, I have made several attempts to contact him on skype and he has not responded whatsoever. Inference suggests that Sherlock has given up discreetly and cares not for us or our time wasted waiting for him to get his rear in gear. Of course, he could also just be very busy and working tirelessly on the server and applied to another to relax a bit. Who knows. I haven't been able to contact him so I don't know. I suppose it is best if we all just start looking elsewhere and hope for someone more mature and more knowledgable of servers to start a Modern Roleplay server. Of course, if you are still looking to roleplay or have some fun on Minecraft, a few servers I can suggest that need some lovin' are:

TheKingdoms, a non-enforced roleplaying/rpg server. It is a nice and mature community and actually has a competent staff. It is also a gaming community so if Minecraft ain't your thing right now, you can see if they would like to play something else, oh and tell them Lark sent you and I'm sure they'll treat you nicely. The url is:

Another server I would like to reccomend is Antioch. Roughly a year ago this server had the happenings to be a grand server for Minecraft but it never took off because it was so underrated. I would like to change that. If you are interested in a lore heavy, I suppose...medium rp server with a custom continet and unique way of playing Minecraft, sign up on the forums and participate in the community. It is small but loveable I assure you ;3 Url is:

To all of you who are disappointed, you are not alone. I was looking foward to Sherlock City and modern rp. I noticed that we have lost some steam here but the application on the forums are rolling in...Which upsets me greatly that Sherlock would abandon such a popular project. If any of you however are experienced server owners or plugin managers, please, undertake the task that is Sherlock City and glorify it as it truly was ment to be.

Adieu Sherlockians,


P.S. My knee is better :D, if you would like to keep in touch, PM me your skype and we can play some Minecraft sometime :P 

Whitelisting Stuffs

Posted by Lark on January 6, 2013 at 4:40 PM Comments comments (13)

Hello everyone!

Now I normally don't make News posts but I'm not sure if everyone checks the Staff Updates so I thought I'd post this little tidbit here so everyone understands the situation...

I've been kind of busy with real life and I've injured my knee recently and I need to get and MRI for it. Which means I won't have as much time to go through all the applications I've been letting slip by...So if it seems like I don't care about the applications, I do care, I just don't have as much time to do as many as I would like.  So the whitelisting process will be a bit slower until I can get everything in order. Sorry about the inconvenices guy.


So Close!

I would also like to shout out to SkyAceDivine and OrginLark. I havent forgoten you guys and im very excited to still have you all. Thanks everyone!

Christmas Update

Posted by Sherlock on December 8, 2012 at 1:45 PM Comments comments (16)

Hello all. Sherlock here. Im sorry. Sorry to all of you for keeping you waiting. Most of the reason it has taken so long is due to my staff honestly. Many have quit. Given up. I could not open server with no staff. I gave up for a while. I honestly did. But a few days ago, I logged on to the website... And what did I see? All of you. Waiting ever so patiently for the server to come online. THAT is the reason, ladies and gentlemen, that I mark my words, this server WILL be online before christmas. You have all restored my faith and I thank you all, SO much for that. I will also be trying my very hardest to post updates as often as possible. Thank you all!

A Series of Unfortunate Events...

Posted by Sherlock on November 14, 2012 at 8:40 PM Comments comments (18)

Hello all. At this point all I can say is im sorry. Im sorry for keeping you amazingly great players waiting so long. After running through bug after bug, and issue after issue with permissions, server hosting, etc, we have been delayed upon possibility. Im SO sorry. However, for those of you who still hold that slight, slight faith in us, were not giving up. Not yet. We HOPE all of the bugs have been worked out. We PRAY to god these unfortuante events are over, but we cannot promise anything. However, as many great people would say, look at the bright side. We have a bright side, (maybe a very small one) But yes, a bright side. We have banned 10+ ANNOYING players from the server. Why? They pester, and bug, and go as far as to post threads telling everyone to give up. So, for those of you mature, patient players, we have weeded out most of the immature annoying FUCKS. Once again I am so sorry. I hope to be online soon. I love you all.

Hey all, so tonight I am with a good friend, and we were talking about the server. The topic came up about the long awaited time for the server to be up, and I began to feel bad. Then we played a few rounds of the survival games, and I figured I would entertain you all! For the next few hours starting now I will have the server online for Minecraft survival games! We will play the original map with I as the host, and each round the winner will get 100$ Sherlock City money. So read the rules and come on! We should be online 2-3 hours. Here are the rules and the IP!
