SRSLY has partnered with the Chelsea District Library to create a whitelisted server for youth to play Minecraft together in a safe environment.

The SRSLY Minecraft server was designed and built by local youth to replicate the City of Chelsea inside the world of Minecraft! Players can visit local landmarks and buildings, including the following:

  • Jiffy Mix silos
  • The Clocktower
  • Chelsea District Library
  • Beach Middle School
  • St. Joseph Mercy Hospital
  • Polly's Country Market
  • and more!

Plus, students can play mini games, build their own structures, and even battle some of the villains from the CPTN SRSLY comic books!

How to Play/Join

To play on the server, youth need to be added to the "whitelist." You can do this one of two ways:

Once you have been added to the whitelist you can play on the SRSLY server by doing the following (you only have to do the first five steps the first time):

  1. Launch the Minecraft client
  2. Go to Launch options click add new
  3. Give the configuration a name (ie SRSLY Server)
  4. Change the version to version 1.8.8
  5. Click on the grey Minecraft logo at the top of the launcher 
  6. Click on the little green up arrow next to PLAY and select the 1.8.8 configuration you just made
  7. Click PLAY
  8. Click Multiplayer
  9. Click Direct Join and enter the server address
  10. Click on the Join Server button


Understanding the rules is important to providing a fun, safe time for everyone on the server. The breaking of any rules will result in one warning. If you break a rule a second time, you will be removed from the server. If something is considered illegal or wrong at school, then it is most likely not tolerated on the server. The rules listed here are subject to change at any time. If you have a complaint, please record the date and time of the offense.
