MindCrack Fan Server
The MindCrack Fan Server is a community of MindCrack fans and friends. Like the MindCrack server, the Fan Server was a private, whitelisted server, so only those who were invited can join the server. The server was closed on 16 June 2013, reasons not specified but possibly due to internal disputes. The ultimate decision maker, MonkeyDK, chose to shut down the server. Guude himself didn't see why the server should be shut down entirely. A rebranding of the server or a reboot had been discussed before but it never materialized.
The Fan Server was a Minecraft server started by Guude on 20 October 2011 after MonkeyDK donated money to him to start it. The server was planned primarily as a place where people can have fun and play with other fans of MindCrack. In the beginning, Guude had selected about 15 people to join the server, including friends of Guude and those who have personally helped Guude. The server held a maximum of 40 people. Members of the MindCrack Server held contests to let more people on. Since then, members of the MindCrack Fan Server held contests themselves or voted to invite people to get onto the server. Around June 2012, the cap was increased to 100 people and existing server members could invite or hold contests to let one person each onto the server.
The vanilla server has had two major map resets (totaling three worlds). The most recent one was after the release of Minecraft 1.5. The world was deliberately rebooted in order to rejuvenate the community. This world soon became corrupted before things were off the ground so Guude rolled back the map to a previous state.
The most recent map on the server featured command-block powered teleportation pads that teleport players to and from seven different themed villages: Cactus Creek (western), steampunk, futuristic, modern, tree house, medieval, and anarchist. The portals and village layouts were built using creative mode, but generally everything else is done in survival mode.

MindCrack Fan Server Tours
Guude has started a new video series titled "MindCrack Fan Server Tours" in which he tours members' builds on the MindCrack Fan Server in order to promote the server. According to Guude, "the tours were [his] best attempt at making everyone happy." Guude hasn't done a tour in a while due to his busy schedule.
