Arkas, or Tijmen as his personal name, is an active member of the MindCrack server. He joined the server in September 2011 after winning third place in the third contest.
Arkas is from Holland in the Netherlands. His Minecraft username is a modified version of "Arkan," a gamer tag he had used in the past but that was no longer available when he made his account.
 Let's Play
Arkas is considered a very talented builder and one of the best, if not the best, on the server. At the old spawn village, he has rebuilt his house at least three times. He has had a gigantic floating disc in the middle of the ocean called "The Mothership," which was undergoing reconstruction until the closure of the server.
Arkas was the most enigmatic member due to the lack of videos and lack of appearances in any of the other members' MindCrack videos. Recently, he has appeared more often in videos, including helping out BdoubleO100 with building the Arena and partaking in a prank along with mcgamer and Nebris against Etho. Arkas' first video on the MindCrack server was streamed live on TwitchTV on 10 June 2012, although the stream was not saved. Prior to his first YouTube video on MindCrack published on 10 July 2012, his YouTube channel had only one video, which was a video submission for Guude's contest to enter the server titled "Arkas' Arena Contest Entry." That video is no longer publicly available. After the initial burst of activity on YouTube and TwitchTV, Arkas fell into inactivity again. When the MindCrack map was reset for 1.6 he revived his vanilla SMP series and has uploaded 22 episodes as of November 22, 2013.
 Minecraft skin
Arkas' skin is based on the TV character Bear Grylls.
