Hello EMCers!As of returning to EMC after a few months of no gameplay here due to struggles with school and work, I return. I've been sort of active checking forums and claiming promos, but I haven't done anything with the community in what feels like ages. Interacting with the community will and always be my favorite thing about this server.But as of late I have seen tempers flare, people being condescending to others, and overall people just not treating each other in the best way. I've said this before in different ways in the past but my main message in this post is that if we, the community, want something changed, added or would like to voice our opinion we need to do it in a tame, mature manner.The staff and administration are more than happy to listen to what any of us have to say, Krysyy is one of my favorite people to talk to (even for real life advice ) because she genuinely wants to help people.I think that through a mature discussion on topics, features, and suggestions for what we want to see in the future of EMC we can get our ideas across in a refined way that will hopefully represent a majority on EMC.A few topics that I have seen people complain or disagree with and my personal opinion:New Player Treatment: I personally think that new players are given a lot to succeed and not much has to be done with them. My only point on this is that I think that we should welcome every new player and answer any questions they have. All of you that spend the majority of your time just running around your residence when on EMC saying you have nothing to do, I suggest you go on the default server (in server list under community tab) and welcome new players and help them with anything they need!New Features / Development: With EMC updating to 1.9 we saw one of the best things, an influx in players and a surge to the economy with all the new items. I personally think that Aikar and especially Chickeneer have stepped up their game to interact more with the community and replying to people's qualms and giving detailed explanations on anything confusing. The only thing I'd like to see some discussion on is the Games Server. Last summer I was really hyped seeing the work that was done on it and would just like an update on how that progress is going. Frontier Players: It seems like nowadays there aren't many dedicated frontier players as there used to be, and I think these players will get some love when Empires comes out, but I feel like us Frontier players could use some QoL changes. I'd like to hear your opinions on some of the additions wild players could receive besides what we already know are in the works which includes anti-grief and claiming land in the wild. My only suggestion on this one is possibly allowing access to /mail in the wild? I don't know if we can still limit it to only diamond supporters like /mail originally said due to the EULA, but maybe we can get an update on this as well? So with this I'd like the community to reply. What do you want to see on EMC? If you could please reply in a similar fashion to mine, outlined / bulleted lists that voice your ideas in a mature way.I'd like to see if we could revise and help each other format our ideas, especially for people like me who aren't the strongest writers but have a lot of messages to convey.
