The Lolnet Forums, located at https://www.lolnet.co.nz/forum is a discussion board which functions as a hub for Lolnet's services. The second version of the Lolnet Forums was created at the same time as the refresh of the Lolnet Minecraft server on the 4th of Feburary 2012.
The original Lolnet Forums were founded in 2011, at the same time as the original server opened. These forums ran phpBB, as does the current forums today. The forums were used as a place for people to make applications to join the server. Players only able to join the server and look around, but not build. They would then have to apply on the forums for build permissions, and were voted on.
These forums lasted until the temporary shut down of Lolnet Minecraft server in late 2011.
The current forums were opened on 4 February 2012, at the same time as the current version of the Lolnet Minecraft server, which began as a temporary creative, freebuild server. When users registered ingame, they were automatically registered on the forums.
The forums grew with the growth of the Lolnet Minecraft server, as the playerbase grew and it became a place to discuss activity on the server. The forums expanded from hosting just talk about our Minecraft server to hosting discussion for other things including League of Legends and computer hardware.
A change to Lolnet made in early 2015 meant that registration was removed from ingame due to the server being made premium only.
