  1. Best Minecraft Servers
    Congrats Socks!
    As seen in this thread: http://empireminecraft.com/threads/more-feet-covering-on-emc.53555/
    MrSocks75 has joined the team of developers for EMC. Socks, Chicken, and Aikar are working on some pretty exciting advancements to the Empire and I'm sure we'll continue to see more and more innovative creations from these amazing minds in the coming months.

    Staff Application Reminder
    Are you someone that enjoys helping people, even when sometimes it takes a bit of patience? Do you love EMC and want to help it thrive? Then apply to be a Staff Member today! You don't have to play 24/7, nor do you have to have a 'perfect' record on the Empire. We are looking for helpful, kind and patient individuals who think they have what it takes to become official Empire Minecraft Staff. If you know someone that you think would be a great assett to our team, encourage them to apply =) They must fill out the version 5.0 of the application in order to be considered.

    Minor Changes to Rules Incoming
    Due to concerns expressed by some members of our community, I am working on re-defining some rules that might not have been too clear in the past. I will make a thread when this is complete, but wanted to give a heads up that the clarification of those Chat Related rules is in progress.

    May Referral Contest Winners
    Most clicks (receive Referral Blocks of Clickyness):
    1st: OmegaDustMC
    2nd: EmoryCrafts
    3rd: salesman200

    March Contest Winners
    As explained here: http://empireminecraft.com/threads/march-2015-contest-follow-the-leprechaun-adventure-map.49748/

    *Drumroll*

    Alas, the time has finally come. This contest taught me a lot and mostly taught me that I don't know a lot either =P
    I learned that this might have been too complex a build contest for just one month completion. We only received 2 submissions overall, but the effort these players put in cannot be discounted as a result. They are phenomenal. The delay in results was due to the possibility of a 3rd, but due to technical challenges, it was unable to be counted.

    The winners are:
    Builder = haastregt
    Mechanic = Uber_Corq
    Author = Uber_Corq

    Their builds are available for download so you can play them yourself. Patience is needed =P
    Uber_Corq: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/jc6a430gmf5zy6h/AADxGpAuCSekVHc26IUnC1H1a?dl=0 (1.7.10)
    haastregt: http://www.mediafire.com/download/8g4t5qbovwsmjhv/Follow_the_Leprechaun_-_Made_by_haastregt.zip (1.8.3)

    With the amount of stuff going on, we are going to hold back on announcing another contest so soon. But don't worry, we'll make up for it =)

  5. Awesome!

    Can someone explain the referral contest to me?

  6. When a player joins the Empire, they are asked (optionally) to tell them who referred them to join the Empire. When a player puts in a username, that username is recorded and put in a leaderboard. Basically, it is a contest to see who refers the most players to the Empire monthly.

  7. How do I get players to put in my name?

  8. At the beginning? Of the forums? Because when I joined the forums I was never asked, neither was I when I joined the Empire.

  9. When you join the Empire, I do believe.
  10. You can use an Empire Minecraft banner on other forums (which is one of many methods). I'm no expert in referrals: I'd ask FDNY. He's the king of referrals. ;)

  12. Hmm, I was never asked, neither where my friends accounts that I may or may not use as alts when they come hang out w/ me :p
  13. Huh, that's funny. =P When I got my 1st alt (cadenwoman2002) I was asked who had referred me to the Empire.

  14. As a heads up, the system for referring players and listing your referrer has changed since the way it was before.

  15. I see. I haven't gotten on to any other accounts (not have I checked the referral system for changes) recently, so thanks for the heads up. :)
  16. Sorry socks, but it's becoming a thing... #SocksBrokeIt
  17. Yep, back in the old days, (not that you're old or anything :p) you listed your referrer on the website on register.
    Now, it gives you the chance to do so when you /register
