Hi gang!My name is ShelLuser, I am a Minecraft addict and I like redstone. Oh wait, this isn't redstone anonymous? My bad! sorry, I am pretty much an EMC newbie afterall (gotta use the excuse while I still can ;-)).Nah, thing is; in the weekends I often like to rant a little on the forums. I can't anymore on the server I was from (its why I found this) and well.... Oh; and not because I got blocked or anything; but because the "fun forums" (as I call 'm) aren't there anymore. My previous server is looking at an overhaul to 1.8, which consists of a full map wipe and other nasty stuff. Amongst with.. removing (or temporarily removing) forums which were so much fun....But... Lets not get too offtopic. I just want to share how impressed I am with the server. Just when I thought there wasn't any option to find a more mature server (read: "log on, introduce yourself, get 3 admins following you all the way"). No fun, seriously. And then this popped up.So after I discovered you guys I was sorta hooked.I come from a server which a previous MC owner / developer who's name starts with a N tweeted about. If that's too vague then its good enough because that is as far as I'll take it.For reasons which are my own I left, all friendly, and I am in desperate need for something else. Enter the Empire.Isn't there a saying: "The empire strikes back?". Oh wait: that's umpire, and I am mixing up sci-fi Oh man, I needed this, so badly I'd add a few funny pictures but all I have is offtopic stuff so that will have to wait until I am not so much a newbie Even so: thanks for the very warm welcome, I love it!Look; my friend (Shiyvah) and me come from the same server. It even used Xenforo (don't bother if this doesn't ring a bell). And I have to say that I am utterly impressed with the sheer amount of freedom we have here!Look; sure we asked some questions, newbies do that. But without anyone's help we're now also neighbors in a town ('town world' ?) ("the one with the /park") without anyone's help. No offense, no details but from where we come from this would have been impossible....Unless you had the right friends (first and only sneer I shall make here).(yes, there is a little bad blood so to speak but the both of us know better. no worries, but I gotta vent a little bit).Guys; awesomeness! I even won my first horse race How cool is that?I had a good 6 months at the previous server (I think my friend spend 2 or 3 years) but we kinda had it. I told Shiy about this place, so far she likes it, awesomeness!And that concludes my rant for the weekend, hoping I didn't overdo it.(if I did; please trust me on one thing: this was a vent for me, an outlet. I love it, and I need it from time to time).Edit: but obviously I don't mean any disrespect. If this is out of place then I will obviously comply with the rules.Sincerely, Shell.
