Greetings everyone! Goldsta is back after a hectic few months to deliver the much anticipated recap for your viewing pleasure. Props to H1N9 and Aphroditie for doing a stellar job with the recaps while I was gone, they’ve definitely set a new standard for me. Our staff and builders have been working their butts off bringing you the best they have to offer and it’s really shown throughout July! Kick up your feet and relax while you get your fill of all that’s happened this past month.
H1N9's Section - Super Important!
Fruitlings, Wednesday marked officially one year since I became owner of Fruit Servers. It has been a year that I think has been full of excitement. We had some major staff changes, introduced the Skyblock server and completed the first map wipe on Fruit Survival. I hope that you have enjoyed the past year as much as I have. It has been fantastic getting to know you all and making Fruit a better place. On Wednesday as a little surprise I introduced the brand new Fruitverse Hub – something I am hoping will become a social place for people to hangout, talk and play minigames in. Fruit is about the community just as much as it is playing Minecraft. I would like to thank the awesome work of Aphrodite and Goldsta along with the entire staff team and Geek for keeping it chugging along so smoothly.
The Fruitverse Hub is a custom commission piece by one of the best build teams out there and I would like to thank the many generous supporters that Fruit has had over the past year for keeping it running and for allowing amazing surprises such as the Fruitverse to happen. Fruit is not possible without you.
This month will see more amazing content added to Fruit. SkyWars will return to Skyblock for the first time in a while with some amazing new maps – See our Facebook page for more info (www.facebook.com/fruitservers). The major quest update that so many of you have been waiting for will also arrive on Skyblock bringing some amazing new quests and a smoother way to complete them. If you are lucky, there might also be some surprises instore for survival depending on how the timing for them works out.
All in all, I look forward greatly to another year on the Fruitverse with you! - H1N9
Survival: 7940 Players
Skyblock: 6195 Players
Great numbers, looking forward to seeing them continue to grow! Fantastic job fruitloops.
Well done to these dedicated voters, you've each earned a store voucher to spoil yourself (or others!).

How to post your Entry
To enter this month's competition, please leave a comment ON THIS POST stating so, or use a warp if you're building on someone else's plot. If you have run out of warps, please let a staff member know.
If you've won a voucher, please speak to H1N9 or a Community Manager about redeeming it. Please remember that these vouchers do not count towards your ingame rank, and they may be used on others too! If you're really confident in yourself and you think you can nab a voucher in the next month, you'd be happy to know they do add up.
Fruit Servers is an amazing community because of the people that are a part of it. Every month one player and one staff member from both Survival and Skyblock are selected and recognized for their contribution to the server, whether it be ingame or behind the scenes.
Player of the month Survival - ItsSquish. Squish has been a loyal member of Fruitservers for well over a year now. She has participated in all that we have to offer and now serves as one of our fantastic builders. As a token of gratitude for her loyalty, she receives this month's prestigious award. Well done Squish!
Player of the month Skyblock - LadySpiritAngel. LadySpiritAngel has very quickly established a fantastic reputation for herself on Skyblock as being one of the most friendly, welcoming faces the server has. Supporting the server in every way she can, she is most deserving of this special award. Well done LadySpiritAngel!
Staff of the month Survival - Malzi. Malzi makes every attempt to go above and beyond in his duties as a staff member. From logging on at less than opportune times to support staff during events, to creating his own little events for players to indulge in, Malzi is a great example of a fantastic staff member. Well done Malzi!
Staff of the month Skyblock - EstherBunny. EstherBunny is one of Skyblock's hardest working staff members. Her friendly presence on the server has helped teach many players about the jovial community we have as she leads by example, paving the way for future staff and setting a high standard. Well done Esther!
Beyond the Bowl
Many of our staff changes were mentioned in previous weekly posts. Tonight we saw the timely promotion of Sister_Chocolate to fully fledged Moderator, so kudos to you Chocolate! And yes, she changed her name to that. It's no longer just a nickname!
Reminder that builder and staff applications will be open throughout the month. All are encouraged to apply if they believe they have the talent to succeed in those important roles.
That's all for July, I look forward to sharing many laughs with you all in my favourite month of the year!
Thanks for reading :)
