      Well, SMP2 is really enjoying the recent banlist cleanup. Not.

        I wonder how many from the recent banlist now find their way into dozens of ignore lists :P

      What's up with the 1.12.1 warnings? I think they're stupid: you can only connect with 1.12 and when you do WHAM!
      1. ShelLuser
        ShelLuser
        The reason I think it's stupid: people who use "Latest version" in their launcher will never see these anyway, only until they changed back to 1.12. And then they get the warning to rub it in.

      Happy birthday Empire Minecraft!

      Not happy about the recipe book getting disabled, I think it's nasty, but I'm glad that staff allows us to use mods (within the rules!)

        Well, it's definitely a 1.12 thingie. IMO best noticed when you're a big survival player doing plenty of crafting. 30min crafting reduced to a few minutes is not "a small setback in gameplay" to me as some people claim. And well, I also still stand by my opinion regarding being innocent until proven guilty. Anyway, I had my say, it's out of my system, we'll see what happens next!

        but there are so many crafting mods and macros out there. It's not difficult to download or make the macros

        True. My problem is that I honestly prefer playing vanilla. But you're right, and I'm looking into some of those now.

      Can you believe EMC? Now that we got a nice amount of players again they're trying to ship us off to the moon! => http://t.emc.gs/72733 ;-)

      That moment when you're almost too tired too play :( Humid weather doesn't help either.

      Meh, tired with work today, hoping to relax a bit on the Empire :)

      Real professionals don't pretend they're irreplaceable; instead they'll ensure that others can take over if the need arises.

      So I took a dare on the Minecraft forums ;) Watch this space next month :P

      Cleaning up a storage in real life (26 15" tube monitors) is more work than cleaning up a storage in Minecraft :)

    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.
