Alright I figure I would get a lot of hate for this idea but I wanted to say it anyway. Upon looking at a far outlook of what EMC may become. I notice that not all Staff stay staff (meaning they retire or step off the grid). This goes the same for community managers (Owner is Exempt from this). I don't think its a good idea to have promotional items or event winnings of someone's head because down the road, when they may not be there anymore (time undetermined), newer players are gonna have no idea or clue who that is and it won't literally mean anything to them. Its also not a good way to reward people and in a way just seems a little self centered to me. Example: Firefloor, Why do I win/others win a Orange Krysyyjane9191 head? Why couldn't it have been a Blaze Powder or a special Fire Block (only obtainable through commands/creative mode)? I think this was a poor decision in picking a reward as it revolves around one person and sort of distorts what the Empire is really about. Looks more like Roman Glorification and look where that went. Another example is when Empire Minecraft reached 80,000 forum members, it was nice to have a celebration but to have it glorified around Purple People stuff (Heads and Paper)? It seems that we weren't celebrating a milestone of 80,000 people but we were celebrating them. Almost like worship in a sense. I don't admire the idea of worship and thats what I see a lot of on here. Now as a server, we can't go back and make those changes, they have been done. So those items exist out there. Maxarian Heads, ICC Memorabilia , so on and so forth. Though starting from here, this thread; I think we can make better choices on what we as a server give to our players as a better way to remember that milestone or event. If anything, we can always return to 2011 - mid 2012 where everyone got straight rupees instead of any items at holidays/events. Your call.
