Mindcrack[edit]

Adlingtont is reputed for his large-scale builds. On the Season 2 server, he build a domed dock and a sprawling castle; he later attempted an even larger castle on the Season 3 server. On the Season 4 server, adlingtont's first builds were an obsidian farm and a gold farm. Besides his castle, his main project was the Lucky Diamond Casino and Hotel at spawn.

Personal life[edit]

Adlingtont married in June 2013.[11] He says he is not religious to any amount, believing solely in science.[12]

Minecraft skin[edit]

Adlington's previous primary skin was a Minion from Despicable Me.[13] In October 2014, Adlington changed his skin to a customized character after expressing a desire to sell merchandise.[14][15][16]
