  1. Everyone here loves EMC. We all know it, it's a fact. So, for this month and this month only (probably), here's the chance for everyone to show it. Unlike many competitions, you don't have to be an amazing builder or the world's best artist to enter. You simply have to love Empire Minecraft.

    How it works
    So that anyone can enter, there are quite a few ways to enter the competition. Each and every way you enter will give you one entry and can only be done once. You can enter as many ways as you like.

    How to enter
    • Tweet with the hashtag #EmpireMC on Twitter
    • Follow @EmpireMinecraft on Twitter
    • Post on the Minecraft Forum topic saying why you love EMC
    • Post on the Empire Minecraft Facebook Page saying why you love EMC
    • Become a supporter. If you are a supporter when you first post you'll get the entry. Every level gets the same. Staff count as supporters since they support EMC.
    • Draw/Photoshop/Gimp/MS Paint/Ect a picture of a moderator or admin and post it here. 1 entry for each picture, 1 picture per staff member. Quality doesn't matter - it's the effort that counts.
    • Say 3 reasons why you love EMC on this thread
    • Posting an EMC related meme on this thread
    • Vote for EMC on Minestatus and post screenshot of rupees log showing the 50r payment for doing so.
    • Build a statue/pixel art of a member of EMC staff. 1 per staff member. Maximum of 5 will be credited. Must be built on EMC. It was so tempting to give extra points for building next to spawn on other servers...
    Please post proof for every task you complete here.

    What are the prizes?
    Since EMC is so amazing, there is more than just the usual prizes for competitions. Currently, the prizes are:
    • 5000 rupees + 39627 rupees from donations
    • 64 diamonds from Glasi13
    • 800 Microsoft Points (1/2 of the cost of Minecraft for Xbox - US ONLY - Will be given in giftcode form)

  11. As Jack said, we all love EMC. There is no doubt about it.

    There are many things I could say about EMC, all of the positive. But in order the follow the rules and not have a HUGE wall of text, I will list the top 3 things I LOVE about EMC.

    1) Staff is THE BEST. Can't say it better. They are kind, loving, helpful, and patient. I can see why they are mods. Also the EMC staff responds right away if you have a question. You know that the staff takes up some time of their life to help everyone. That just makes EMC great already.

    2) The community. The EMC community has become like a family to me. They all welcome new members of this family kindly. Everyone is nice and helpful. There are many people founding groups that help their fellow family members. I love the EMC community

    3) Legit survival, no PVP. Really, I just like who this server is run. Mainly its legit survival, no PVP. I can't tell you how happy I was when I saw there was NO PVP on this server. Also, survival is fun, when your with friends and its REAL survival. That's also something that makes EMC great.

    Now this is where I go on and on about, rupees, supporter, can't kill yourself in town, anti-greif, and so on. But I promised...

  18. On behalf of my daily pay il dontate 5k soon
  19. Prepare for memes.

    The EMC community:
    Cares about new people
    Helps people out <------(the reasons I like EMC, this text is light for a reason)
    Is very friendly
    Has IcecreamCows

    The Team Fortress 2 community, for example:
    Hates new people
    Leaves people hanging
    Is very hostile
    Full of elitists

    Seriously, EMC is the best community I've ever seen online. When you bring together amazing mods and admins, a great community, and top-notch servers, you get EMC. I'm very happy to have come across Empire Minecraft.

    I'd like to close with this quote:

    "We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too." ~John F. Kennedy

    While nobody on Empire Minecraft intends to go to the moon right now, EMC rose to the challenge. They chose the hard thing. They accepted the challenge. And we intend to win it. And at this rate, we will.

    I love Empire Minecraft. ;) (Copypasta from the 100K Giveaway thread)
  20. As justin once said,
