My first go at a Minecraft Server - Hello everyone!

Discussion in 'Introduce Yourself' started by Matthewbe, Mar 16, 2016.

  1. Hey guys!

    I had been searching for a server for quite some time now, and I knew I wanted a survival server that was active and not gimmicky. I guess I wanted a Vanilla one, and I landed with you guys! I've taken my time with the tutorial, and although there's some things I've got to get used to and learn I think it's a good fit! Seems pretty casual which I like, and am enjoying the rules that are put into place as well.

    So.. a little about me.

    I'm 20 years old, work full time as a Python/Django developer in Chattanooga, TN and I'm 6 months in the works with my own startup. I haven't been very interested in spending my time in single player games much anymore but I'm not in the mood for heavy FPS or PvP as well. Pretty much have been searching for a nice community to get myself into and casually play a game I can invest short increments of time here and there when I want to.

    Also... I just want to make good friends. The last time I was invested in an online community (like a forum) was when I was a moderator for Minecraftforums (same username) and developing mods for Fallout 4 on the Nexus - Other than that it's been mainly hopping server to server in Insurgency, or playing walking simulator in ArmA II.

    So I've flagged this as my new home now that I'll be on until eternity. You're good people, and my people now.

    Oh also, I usually just stick out on my own and build my own things in most online games, usually never in guilds either. First time I've ever seen this town system and the such on Minecraft. Kick me out of old habits and help me become a group/team player, too!

  4. What a wonderful intro. I like how you said we're your people now - which is very true - we are a family, sometimes dysfunctional and sometimes we get passionate about issues, but you know what: we take care of each other. Welcome to EMC, if you ever need anything please ask, we're here for you always. :)
  5. Thank you Eviltoade! Every family has their quirks but at the end of the day it's all love right? That's what's important! Tight-knit communities are the bomb.

    Will do, thanks!

  8. Welcome to EMC! Hope you have a blast.
    Ask after public farms/grinders on your home server to get a boost starting out. Most have a bunch, and if they don't, come visit us crazies on smp8 for them :D
  9. Welcome to the Empire! I'm usually found on smp9 if you have any questions/problems or if you just wanna chat. Word to the wise: watch out for smp8.. They use a fish to get married to a potato over there (or so I've heard) ;).

  10. Thanks! I wouldn't doubt that - there's some sweet stuff to be offered here.

    Haha, I shall. Nothing like a good Iceland/Irish wedding to kick off the night, eh?

    I may! I like to do things from scratch though without help if I can haha. I find more enjoyment in earning my up. :) Thank you!

  11. Any object or player is always welcome to become a wife on smp8. There are only wives (gender being irrelevant). The spuds of love make perfectly good spouses, though I recommend baked tater over raw. We don't want a repeat of the tragedy of Idahoeta.

  12. When did SMP8 invade the forums?...

    Also, welcome. :)

  13. Because SMP8 is the weirdest. We like invading random things. Like the market of fish marriages.

    Anywho! Welcome to EMC. Personally I was the same as you... When I joined EMC almost 4 years ago :p if you see me in game feel free to say hi!
  14. a long time ago... a long time "remember those days when smp8 didn't infect stuff?" i don't

    Welcome to EMC! #smp8isthebest come see us sometime!
  15. Hi Matthew. Welcome to the Empire. Enjoy your stay. :)

  16. Welcome! I guess there's not much to say, other than the fact that our community is amazing, the staff are amazing, the plot system is amazing, the delay between an update and us updating to that update is not so amazing, and smp8 is the weird server.

    Enjoy! :)

  17. Welcome to the empire, Matthew. Don't worry, PvP isn't important here. If you are fighting a staff member, that's a different story. XD Nice intro. :)
  18. Welcome to EMC!! If you ever are in need of anything feel free to ask me I'm a hoarder and have almost everything on my res xD ...I'm almost always on (I live on smp7) Most people on smp7 live in the wild on outposts so chat is pretty quiet but feel to stop by any time :D Hope you enjoy your time here on EMC
