Arkas, or Tijmen B as his personal name,[2] is an active member of the MindCrack server. He joined the server in September 2011 after winning third place in the third contest.[3] Arkas also entered in the first contest but did not win a place on the server.[4][5]


Arkas is from the Netherlands.[6][7] He previously studied neurobiology at university but lost interest around December 2013. Arkas will do YouTube full time until September 2014 when he will find a new study.[8] 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.[9]

Arkas is considered a very talented builder and one of the best,[10] if not the best,[11] on the server. In the Season 3 spawn village, he rebuilt his house at least three times. He 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 used to be the most enigmatic member of the server due to his lack of videos and lack of appearances in other members' videos until June 2012 when his voice was first heard during a prank with mcgamer and Nebris on Etho.[12] Arkas' first video on the MindCrack server was streamed live on Twitch on 10 June 2012,[13] although the stream was not archived. 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" which is no longer publicly available.[14][15] After the initial burst of activity on YouTube and Twitch, Arkas fell into inactivity again. When the MindCrack map was reset for 1.6 he revived his vanilla SMP series and has been uploading videos regularly.

Minecraft skin[edit]
