Oh the irony... I once became unhappy with a map wipe (not on EMC!). And now I keep building stuff in the wastelands :) Jun 26, 2017 at 7:03 AM

      _Still_ not in the highest posting members list? ;)
      When you do get in there, though, you will by far be both the youngest in EMC age and the oldest in Earth age, I do believe! :D

        Well... I don't post for quantity sake, but only if I think I'm adding something useful or when I enjoy the posting itself. tbh I didn't even remember where that famous list was :)

        But as with so many thing: I'm in no hurry. It'll probably happen, someday :)

        Haha, I know that. ;) And that's part of the reason why I'm sure you'll get in there and stay in there!
        People who are posting just to get recognised from a high number of posts (note: those aren't seen much on EMC!) will get burnt out sooner rather than later... but us who post for the fun or 'greater good' of it have got a reason to keep going! :)

        I think both of you guys add some good posts in the forums! The amount of information in these forums is pretty great. Sometimes there is so much it is hard to parse through the weeds though.

        In all fairness: practice makes perfect and I get the impression that I'm honestly making some progress when it comes to building designs (also thanks to several guides, like the building guide Jelle shared with us).

        Thank you very much :D
        I'm actually currently working on jet another one (featuring modern designs with 1.12) so you'll be able to improve even more I hope :P

        Back in the good ole days when I had some left :P Man, I enjoy 1.12 on EMC way too much :) So much easier to use 1 single client again for all my Minecraft plays.

        And some people wonder when I share my opinion that religion is basically one of he biggest evils on earth. The amount of violence and abuse within the name of religion is just staggering. And the examples just keep coming :(

    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.
