So, as many have noticed, EMC has been experiencing many attempted hacks. Some "respected" players have been acting up. We have PThagaard, MR2R2M, and roblikescake, just for example. This thread is to debunk rumors, and encourage more playtime and enjoyability on EMC.Just because there have been some old members using illegal mods, hating ON the mods, means nothing. EMC is still EMC. Regarding Max's and Eye-Car's promotion: There has been many sparks of outrage over these, but why? These are 2 honestly deserving people, who work hard to keep EMC great. Why SHOULDN'T these 2 people get it? Many have said it is because of the Dating and Engagement. This is honestly, NOT true. They met over moderation, and fell in love. *Silent Congrats* And, finally, a quote from Max "Think about it this way, Aikar is Justins helper, and I am IcecreamCows helper" Not exact, but close.Regarding Bans of "Trustworthy" people: Roblikescake is what I and ICC like to call a troll. He was supposedly "nice" and "awesome", but that was just toying with you. I admit, I liked him too, I thought he was good guy, but you never know. He lied, and cheated us. We must learn to accept that. Pthagaard was respected member, one who was like throughout the community, and a good friend. He created a thread regarding "sin-free" Minecraft. and his apologies. Then he went crazy, attacking mods, generally, causing a nuisance. He was given a chance to keep his EMCasino account, but still did more. NEVER accept anything, with downloads, or sites from roblikescake or an alt, i.e. KingofKraft13, annatexas, antoniolovex13. Block him from Skype immediately.Regarding the Playability and Reputation of EMC: Why shouldn't you keep playing? EMC's reputation may have been bad-mouthed by former members, and some "veteran" members have been leaving, but SO MANY leave every day! They are attempting to maybe create sympathy, but it is not a big deal in general. EMC get's so many people every day, more than the amount that leave. We still have many members, me, Jack, PIG, Alex, and so many more. EMC may not be what it used to be, or what people expect, but it's the best one can get. Enjoy it while you can.One final thing: Wait for it, and EMC will become BETTER than it used to be, better than it ever was! We have an amazing staff at our side, helping get through this. Wait, and good things will come.TL;DREMC is awesome, hackers suck. <3-Yank, your favorite 12 year-old.
