Wooo! Forums are actually working for me now! They were out every time I checked from 12am-8am, just decided to go to bed :3 Works now so I'll post this thread. Today Sept. 26 marks 6 months I have been on EMC. It's also my birthday . I didn't even plan that out or notice that until I was looking at my profile last week.EMC has been pretty fun and I'm sure it will only get better as time goes on . I wasn't sure what to expect when I first joined, I had tried out other servers and felt like I was stuck in a room full of yappy chihuahuas because the admins and mods were more worried about their PVP servers. The chat was constantly full of "WILL U MARRY ME?" "WILL U MARRY ME?" "WILL U MARRY ME?" "WHO WANTS TO MARRY ME AND SHELLY!?" You couldn't get a plot to build your house on unless you sent a request to a Mod/Admin who of course, were never on.I came across Minecraftopia and found the link for EMC and joined. I was hooked the first day . That same day I managed to recruit my sister. We ended up strictly townies at first and built some awesome stuff together. Thanks to the April Fools event where Aikar and iSmooch ripped up my lawn and attracted all of SMP7 to my plot as well as pushing myself to become active on the forums and go to events held, I've met some awesome people. I discovered the LLO and took up the role of "The Lorax" I spoke for the trees, since it seemed our jungle kept being burned down.With the good of course there are some bad, Experienced griefing a lot, creepy people harassing me, (Thanks IcC for ending that), finding out there are two sides to some people and I also ended up recruiting my best friend and that turned into a huge bunch of crazy with him ranting about how stupid everything was and how expensive and how he didn't want to build in teh wild because he would be griefed and it wouldn't be fixed etc.. I was pretty upset and thought about leaving but I stuck with EMC I have met some not-so-awesome people and luckily I've did my best to not get the ban hammer x3Anyway I guess I'll go along with everyone else and do an AMA. I would post a "thank you to all my wonderful friends" but I would leave someone out if I named specific names so count yourselves as all my friends.
