Meet Our Staff

Leaderboard Mods:

I did an "Obtain Cake" speedrun when I was like 11 and then I hung out in Skype groups for a bit and somehow ended up running this community? I do RSG occasionally but mostly focus on other games when speedrunning, like Super Mario 63, Celeste, and the 602. I stream on Twitch sometimes and I post poorly thought out hot takes on Twitter. I will eat oranges with the peel for money.

Crafterdark:

Hi! I'm CD, I'm 23 and Java Moderator since... 2018. (I was actually in the community since 2016, but I was mainly running CTM maps)

It's been a long journey and it is amazing to see how much the community grew up with all the members we have now.

I know a lot about technical game stuff and I like to write cdwalls, probably the first thing you have noticed if you are an active member of the Java Edition discord. (Many lines of text, many spaces, often associated with cds & bricks).

I first cooperated with Azelef and other clever people to bring interest to Seedfinding and Eyed portals, so Set Seed runners can thank me or hate me for this :) ... but hey now you've got 12 eyed in 1.9+ hehe)

Twitter: @Crafterdark1

(I won't post other socials, as I will likely miss every DM there)

[I'm a fan of the new Time Travel glitch]

Hi, I'm SpeedNintendo (he/him). I'm 16 and I've been running Minecraft since January of 2019. And it has been my main speedgame for well over a year now. I have been a part of the team since early 2020, and have seen the community go from extremely niche, to extremely huge. I run basically any category I feel like, and have decent times in 1.16 RSG, and many pre-1.9 glitched categories. Including WR in SSP because I'm a complete loser. People are advertising their socials here so uh I stream on twitch hi my twitch.

Luminosity:

Hello! I am a Minecraft Java Edition verifier and speedrunner, who currently specialises in the any% glitched category and its derivatives. As such, I have held both the random and set seed glitched world records (and hope to hold many others in the future), as well as made many renovations to the category. I have made a foray into many other categories though, as I believe the variety is integral to any speedrunning experience. I have and will continue to attempt to support the (unfairly maligned) glitched category, in addition to other categories. In general, my goal as both a verifier and speedrunner is to push precision to its limits, while not sacrificing the enjoyability of the experience as a whole. I pledge to continue in the pursuit of improving the leaderboards via verification. Along with the rest of the Minecraft Java Edition speedrunning team, I hope to help create a better experience for both speedrunners and verifiers alike. I hope that, through discussion and persistence, each action taken will help to improve the speedrunning experience as a whole.

VRplaYK:

I became interested in minecraft a few years ago because of my nephew, who often watched entertainment videos on Minecraft. At the time, this game seemed primitive to me, but when I tried to study it, I realized that it is very interesting for creative people. I really liked this game and especially the way speedrunners play it. It seemed to me a good show, like the tsyrkov tricks. I spent hours watching Illumina or Funderful play.

belj:

Hi, I'm Belj! I'm a data fiend, instigator of pre-1.7 all wood logs, and otherwise hub of chaos. I'm also a mod for Minecraft JE: Datapack/Modded Category Extensions and Minecraft Lovehunt. I'm a pre-1.9 supremacist, worked on the Relay Cup, and dabble in chat moderation.

Outside of MCSR, I'm a uni student and love Degrassi, space, basketball, and internet culture/history. Twitter - YouTube - Twitch.

Cubing_Cinematics:

Hi, I'm zt29/Cubing_Cinematics, and I am a relatively newer verifier and chat mod for Minecraft Java Speedrunning. I first started playing Minecraft in 2013, and got into speedrunning the game in 2020. My favourite categories are Any% SSG and FSG, and I also frequently do Icarus RSG and FSG runs. I also occasionally help seedfind for new Any% SSG seeds. Besides Minecraft, I also used to enjoy cubing, hence the second name.
