Putting the hammer away...

  1. My fellow Empire minecraftians, after the pleasure of many months of staff service on EMC the time has come for me to sit back, relax and enjoy the wonderful atmosphere and environment that you have helped to create.

    I would like to reassure the community that my retirement is 100% due to personal reasons and life priority restructuring, and is a way for me to reduce my ongoing responsibilities and continue to enjoy the great game minecraft and it's awesome variation EMC.

    Many thanks go out to all of the community who have supported me in this role, and of course the remaining staff who will continue to ensure EMC remains the great server it is today! :D
  2. Sorry to hear your retiring - we never chatted, but I know you did great things.

    Very best of luck in whatever you do :)

  3. Take care Mr. white, hope you'll still be able to come play with us from time to time.
  4. :(:(:(

    Best wishes for the future
  5. Grr, real life always gets in the way eventually. :)

    I don't really know you personally that well, but i see your legacy in lots of areas. You've done a lot for EMC. :) Thank you for all that. Perhaps we'll see some amazing builds from you in the future, since you'll have more free time. :)
  6. You were one of the very originals at the beginning with us. EMC definitely became what it did due to a large portion of you being around buddy! You had a good run. :)
  7. One of the greats...

    If staff members had trading cards.. Shaunwhite's rookie card would worth bunches.
  8. gg Shaun, gg.
    You've been an awesome EMCian
  9. You have been an amazing staff member Shaun, thank you so much for your ongoing contributions to the community and staff team. :) Best of luck!

  10. Thank you for everything!
    You were one of my first impressions of EMC staff, and I was very impressed, you are always very professional and kind, but knew how to quickly use the ban hammer, when required.
    Thanks for helping with my custom streets, and political wild land claiming, etc.
    I have always liked your epic builds.
    I wish you the best, and hope to see you around more.
  11. Sorry to see you step down, you will be greatly missed.
    Best of luck for the future.
  12. We should keep a running tally of amazing Senior Staff who cease to exist because they actually have important stuff in their lives.

    BigDavie's next, by the way. Hopefully he can steel himself before the tide comes in.

  18. Sad to see you leave the staff team, I remember you went WAY out of your way to help me with a griefing problem a couple months back. You didn't have to put in as much effort as you did, but you went ahead with it anyway. Good luck in all your future endeavors.

  19. Highly likely, EMC was the 2nd multiplayer server I ever tried, and I never left so it'll always be /home. :D

    Will definitely still be around, with more time to spend horsing about and actually playing minecraft. :D

    Not quite an original, but close to it! Dark_Liz and AusQB were the original senior staff, and a couple of guys I will always look up to. It was a pleasure to walk in their shadows, and I have faith that the staff which follow me will in turn leave their own footprints in the sand. :p
  20. Almost 2 years ago. I had my first encounter with the elusive shaunwhite. I had reported to him a Griefing that I noticed while walk to my Skelly/Spider Grinder base I had built in the wilderness. While I was engaged in /tell messages a creeper snuck up on me, exploded, and killed me. He returned the favor and placed this chest (still the same chest) and dropped all of my dropped stuff in there along with an extra grass block. I had not learned about the magic of Silk Touch yet, so this was REALLY cool. Overall, he has made many contributions to EMC that will not soon be forgotten.
