So, having seen a lot of new people joining the server and the site, it's often been asked why they have to link the two. I thought it right that there be a definite answer to this question. So, here's the reasons that you have to link them.
Connecting your accounts (Dogcraft and Minecraft) together:
1. allows the amount of money from the site add to the server and vice versa. This way you can buy items on the site with money you may have raised from the server.
2. means that any server items that you buy from the site is given to your account. This way someone else doesn't accidentally obtain what you bought.
3. Allows the mods to ensure that you are the right age to participate on the server. (If you didn't know there's an age limit, read the rules (http://dogcraft.net/index.php/page,rules.html
), you should have by now.
4. Allows you to build and break blocks on the server (excluding claimed zones).
So, that's the reasons that the accounts are linked.
If you have any questions about the reasons talk to a mod (the people with red names), head mods (the people with Green names) or if your lucky enough to see him when he's not busy, our friendly administrator, Mattigins (he's awesome enough he has a blue name!).
If you have any problems while attempting to link your accounts, first make sure your accounts verified (talk to a head mod if it's been more than 24 hours since you registered), then check that your following the right procedure (click here (http://dogcraft.net/index.php/topic,4726.0.html
) for a walk-through, courtesy of MasterMind). If it still doesn't work, talk to a mod/head mod and they'll sort it out.
Hope that sorts out any questions you may have about the linking system!
