  3. i know more moople has her own live and tings but why does she need to jnprove her self and work on great art and learn tings becouse we need 2pm or 3pm events im disapointed thar more moople does waht she likes and cant just host a event While drawing or making art this would be way more efficent
    we shut also implent this in school gym german and math
    at the same time

  4. Im just portraying my excitement for the 10pm events. i have a cramped work schedule and 10pm is the only time i can really play.

    Another thing is Moople has her own life, she is extremely busy with both EMC and college stuff. I'm sure she can do 2-3pm events but it would (likely) be too stressful for her. so someone like her needs days for herself. and the fact you say "i'm disappointed that more moople does what she likes and cant just host a event" is extremely selfish, rude, and uncalled for. moople did nothing wrong and should not have to face backlash for having a busy life. As for implementing this into schools its kind of a no-brainer explanation. schools exist for children of this generation to be educated and to educate the next generation. it is not there for the sole purpose of minecraft/other games.

    I think you need to take some time and reflect on yourself and realize that not everyone plays games 24/7

  7. note may have explained it a little wrong since i could not find the corect englis words
    but the joke was that more moople makes great tings and probely does great stuf irl
    but more of a silly karin reply
    note text does not rilly show face emotions so i was actuly typing that with a big silly smile so that probely explains somting

  8. It would be awesome to see an official version of the contest progryck ran, it was quite fun,

    Usually after a few days the only ones left at the event are a few stragglers and a couple people doing speedruns,
    when he hosted this, we got a lot more people showing up, to try speedruns, farm EP, etc

    obviously some of the categories are specific to the event but
    -post a picture of yourself next to a hidden easter egg
    -post a speedrun of the event
    -build something in the style of the event
    are pretty much universal :)
  9. yes
