      I can no longer contain my curiosity. Been meaning to ask this forever: what sort of shell? Conch? Nautilus? Oyster? Snail?

      Here, here's a useless post that you can like instead of the profile post comment you liked but couldn't like because profile post comments can'rt be liked, which is a fact you don't like.... I like this sentence.... :P

        There are also reasons why we _shouldn't_ be able to like comments though, in my opinion. ;)

      Sometimes when I play I can't help stop to think about what an amazing game it is we're actually playing.

        THINK about this.. I've played modded ("tech") Minecraft, pure vanilla, EMC, my own LAN server. But it's all Minecraft in the end. It is amazing if you stop to think about it.

      Mojang, please fix your crappy auth servers. Sure those are EULA compliant? <mutters>

        This afternoon: massive lag, eventually a disconnect, and then I couldn't log back on. Restarted the game, and I couldn't log into the game itself for 3 -5 minutes for no apparent reason. Mojang owes me a new shield.

        And this isn't the first incident... those servers are sometimes utter shite where accessibility goes.

      And Shell said: let the games begin! Hint: something happened 'somewhere'. Could it be important? Naaah!

        So here's the problem with that... I'm quoting an SMP2 regular (x7mx) here: if you start playing and some people seem like asshats then yeah. but if you start playing and half the server seems like asshats then could it also be the other way around?

        Part 2: For the record: nothing between the lines here, I'm not claiming to know anything because I honestly don't. But I am being honest here: it is what's going through my mind as well.

        In the end I'm a total bystander here, and as such cannot make an honest well-balanced opinion on all this. I am sorry to see Kira leave though. And I also think she should try to move to smp2 :)

        Probably because it is ;) If you come across a 'ShelLuser' "elsewhere" with a Nerv avatar then chances are high that it'll be me :) One of the reasons I briefly used that (edited) avatar here a while as well, the other being a bet :P

    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.
