      For the record: I have no plans of leaving, not even remote. I do play less because of work, but that's it.

      I seriously like it how staff generally tries to help you do what you want to do instead of telling you what you should be doing.

        I honestly think some players have NO idea how much freedom we're enjoying on the Empire. And I think that deserves some attention as well.

      My #1 Minecraft annoyance: you start it, and there's no sound. You restart it, still no sound. <insert nasty comments here>.

        Resource pack won't cut it. The sound aspect is on an OS level; when I have the mixer open I see MC not even registering itself. Seems to be related to the Java version I think. Anyway; so far so good (used older Java, the one shipped with the launcher).

        Nah nah nah, minecraft a sound engine is pulled from the resource pack. Force loading the resources always fixes my sound engine.

      They exist: companies which set up *5* different backup systems, and then don't bother to check if ANY of them actually work :P

        lol, its quite common, people just "expect" things to work 24/7, and are shocked when they stop working. Smartphones are a good example, because how many people actually backup their smartphone data? Yet they are shocked and upset when their phone breaks and they can't access any of their stuff. (Thankfully cloud solutions have begun to solve this problem, but even they could stop working one day and lose data.)

        Rules of our game: we're only allowed to use things we found in the Frontier. We're not allowed to use /stable (yet), we didn't sneak in elytra's, and we also haven't found llama's yet. So walking & boating it is for now :)

        I did something similar with horses and boats a while back. My journey was meant to find the edge of the world, but I stopped at the unexplored areas of the frontier after 9 hours of traveling.

        The best part though is that I still have some options to upgrade if I want to, but I'm saving those for when work gets less demanding.

        Yah, I suppose you need to really like Anime (the old classic anime's) to understand this one :P Its actually an avatar which I use on most other fora I participate on, so I figured 'why not'. Although I did make it a little bit more "EMC friendly" :)

    I suppose I fall into the 'geek' category. I'm an IT professional and I basically learned most of it myself. "In my days..." we didn't have much I(C)T studies; perhaps apart from learning how WP5.1, Lotus 1-2-3 and dBase worked.

    Messed with computers most of my life (started with a C64, BBC Electron and later expanded to 286, 486 and the more modern machines) and often went way beyond merely "starting programs".

    Self employed, own (small!) IT company, which often results in pretty drastic changes in playtime. Sometimes I have the luxury to combine work with play (telephone support (standby) for overseas customers for example) while in other weeks I won't be able to play at all.

    Main hobbies: Scooter, synthesizers / sound design, Minecraft, watching a movie with my gf on a Saturday evening (<3), reading.

    About Minecraft:

    My girlfriend introduced me to Minecraft in March 2014, and I was quickly hooked. Especially the redstone parts managed to grasp my interest, even though I had little clue on how to use them.

    3 days after discovering Minecraft I discovered the multiplayer communities, found a server I took a liking to and it was a very nice and educational experience. Eventually I lost my motivation; partly because of the way the server was run but mostly because of an upcoming map wipe. After playing and working very hard for 6 - 7 months only to realize that it would all go kab00m was too demotivating for me.

    "If I need to start all over anyway, then why not look around for other alternatives?".

    This is where I found the Empire. December 2014.

    I've been online for nearly 2 months at the time of writing, and I've now reached a point where there's no more doubt in my mind anymore: this is where I belong.

    Update:

    It seems that my opinion is shared by "the powers that be", because on March 2015 I got invited to become part of the EMC Contribution Team, an invitation I obviously took on both handed. I'm very excited, mostly because I take joy in the fact that people recognized and appreciated the things I've done so far; and have now put an official "label of approval" onto it.

    Update:

    As of October 2016 I quit said contribution team because I didn't feel motivated enough anymore. EMC is all about having fun for me, and as soon as something stops being fun then that's where I'll have to draw the line. For me a title becomes meaningless if you can no longer enjoy it, and I'm not really the kind of guy who needs to have status symbols. I'd rather let my actions speak for themselves :)

    Update (17th November 2016):

    It appears there are some wild rumors going about regarding me leaving the contrib. team, and I feel I need to squash those because after my last somewhat critical public remarks (critical is -not- the same as negative!) some people apparently thought that I somewhat became anti-EMC or something.

    Yes, I might sometimes criticize the staff and/or their actions. But that does not mean that I suddenly started hating on them or something. That's plain out ridiculous.

    Fun fact: Aikar criticized the staff in his days with regards to town vs. survival, and look where we are now. So why would my (few!) moments of criticism suddenly have to turn out bad?

    Empire Minecraft is the best Minecraft server there is for me.
