He was part of episode 20 of the Mindcrack Podcast recorded live at MineCon 2012,[10] and also episode 49 recorded live at Insomnia 2013.[11] Dinnerbone joins the Mindcrack Server to interact with the other Mindcrackers every so often.[12]

Dinnerbone's only appearance on the Season 3 map was to judge BdoubleO100's and generikb's Mine Wars.[13][14] Dinnerbone joined the server multiple times throughout Season 4. Notable occurrences include during BdoubleO's livestream on 3 July 2013,[15] during the 2013 Mindcrack Marathon,[16] to prank BdoubleO100,[17] and later prank Vechs.[18] On occasion, he had joined to view Minecraft bugs or new features.[a]
