    Carbonyx joined EMC on Jan. 2nd 2016, and he joined the Contribution Team on May 22th,2017. "I was sick of the run-of-the-mill PvP servers, so I mainly played SMP. A friend introduced me to EMC and I've been here ever since :D

    What do you like to do IRL?: I'm a speedcuber and I love to solve twisty puzzles such as Rubik's Cubes. My personal best for a 3x3 Rubik's Cube is 19.3 seconds. I also love astronomy, and have about $1200 worth of equipment :D I also love paintball, and have a $600 setup. (My hobbies are way too expensive...) I also have a hobby-grade RC stadium truck that can go 85 MPH :p These wallet-bursting hobbies take up most of my IRL time :p I also run high school cross country. I'm an amateur programmer and am trying to get into it much more.
    Favorite animal and why: Anteaters. They're just chill and, you know, eat ants.
    Favorite Website: So much information to read and so many things to learn :D
    Favorite thing about EMC:The Community. I find myself spending more time on the forums than in game (mainly because I've been busy)
    Favorite color and why: Red. Don't really know why.
    Favorite Minecraft feature: Redstone, even though I don't understand it at all.
    Favorite Minecraft block: Command blocks, even though I don't understand them either :p
    If you were a mob in Minecraft, what would you be and what would you do?: I'd have to be a pig, and I'd probably just oink all day and live the pig life.
    Favorite music:Early-mid 2000s alt rock. Hybrid Theory, Meteora, and Phobia are my 3 favorite albums. (Linkin Park and Breaking Benjamin)

    _cTJ_ joined EMC on March 13th, 2015, and he joined the Contribution Team on December 2nd, 2016.

    EndermanMagic joined EMC on Jul 8, 2015, and he joined the Contribution Team on Dec. 2nd, 2016."I was looking through the minecraft servers list and EMC was there :p I decided to give it a try."

    What do you like to do IRL?: I'm almost a first degree black belt in American Kenpo. I play the piano and I'm one of my teacher's best students. Also, I love doing graphics, emc, (sometimes writing stories), playing with my dog, helping out at church, and other things if I'm not busy. :p
    Favorite animal and why: Dog. She is the second heart of my life.
    Favorite Website:
    Favorite thing about EMC: I'm tied between two features. The promos and the forums. Both of them make emc very unique!
    Favorite color and why: In real life, I love the color green. I know. I'm weird. xD
    Favorite Minecraft feature: Elytras. Who doesn't love flying over forests and mountains? Elytras are awesome.
    Favorite Minecraft block: Stone Bricks. These blocks go with anything. If I'm too lazy to design a complex structure, thrown in some stone bricks and the magic happens. :)
    If you were a mob in Minecraft, what would you be and what would you do?: If ender-skeletons existed in minecraft, I would become one of them. The combination of these two mobs would be unstoppable. Just imagine. If a skeleton was shooting arrows, but suddenly teleported out of sight, when the player was close enough for melee attacks. Pretty OP, right? In the End, a skeleton would be constantly shooting you and teleporting to different locations.
    Favorite music:Pop
    Pets?: I have a dog, named Roxie.
    If you had to lose one sense, what would it be?: Smell.
    Favorite cookie?: Sugar. Those are SO GOOD.

    jkrmnj joined EMC on November 18th, 2011, and he joined the Contribution Team on May 24th, 2014. "The server I used to play on shut down after the 1.8 update for technical reasons. After looking on server lists for a while, I discovered this one. The Town seemed really cool and things just kept getting added. Since then, I have stayed on this server."

    What do you like to do IRL? I enjoy playing saxophone in a marching band and doing other random things such as baseball. I also like programming.
    Favorite animal and why: I like the red eyed tree frog because it is cool.
    Favorite Website: Neptune's pride 2 is tons of fun.
    Favorite thing about EMC: The way I can enjoy Town on one server but be part of the wilderness on others. All I need is a quick command to switch.
    Favorite color and why: Green. Red eyed tree frogs are green.
    Favorite Minecraft feature: The ability to connect to EMC I also find the fact that I can kill an enderdragon with beds to be cool.
    Favorite Minecraft block: Air, because air keeps me alive.
    If you were a mob in Minecraft, what would you be and what would you do? I would be a skeleton and just unleash death on players from on top of a mountain.
    Favorite music: I like jazz, classical, and alternative. The band Imagine Dragons is great and Radioactive is still cool.
    Pets? I have a dog and cat. The dog is lazy and the cat isn't.
    If you had to lose one sense, what would it be? Smell because it is the least useful.
    Favorite cookie: I like peanut butter cookies.
    Favorite quote: "The distance between insanity and genius is measured only by success" -Ian Fleming.
    If you could meet one person, who would it be? I would want to meet someone who would give me a million dollars.

    kevdudeman joined EMC on May 28th, 2012, and he joined the Contribution Team on March 21st, 2014.

    What do you like to do IRL? Play the piano (somewhat badly) and write stories.
    Favorite animal: Cats, only because my family has always had them :p
    Favorite Website:
    Favorite thing about EMC: I like having a place to build stuff that is safe and permanent but also having some sense of Community. I never did find another server where people were friendly overall and there was also the option to have (safe) places to build where everything would stay around for a while. Most of my places have been here since I joined in 2012, so I'd say I was right about the long term safety of building locations, lol. Then of course the reason I just don't build in singleplayer is because I like all the people around here as well.
    Favorite color and why: Blue... it looks nice.
    Favorite Minecraft feature: Redstone devices! I used to have a small business here making stone generators and it was a lot of fun, I ended up making quite a few of them. I don't make machines that much anymore but I wouldn't exactly say placing blocks (what I do now) is my all time favorite thing to do.
    Favorite Minecraft block: Lapis or snow.
    If you were a mob in Minecraft, what would you be and what would you do? Sit in a stone block for my entire life as a silverfish. Lazing around doing nothing sounds pretty much like what I usually do!
    Favorite music: I like a lot of songs but I guess piano music of any type would be something I put above the rest.
    Pets? 2 cats.
    If you had to lose one sense, what would it be? Sense of time so I could not worry about responsibility.
    Favorite cookie: Sugar.
    Favorite quote: "What's your favorite quote? Please include who said it" -jkrmnj
    If you could meet one person, who would it be? Myself from the past, I've forgotten a lot of stuff and I want to catch up.

    NetherSpecter joined EMC on January 24th, 2013, and he joined the Contribution Team on December 2nd, 2016."I had just bought Minecraft and was looking for an SMP server to play on. EMC had it's own charm and it stuck with. Suddenly I was addicted."

    What do you like to do IRL?: Write, write, write.
    Favorite animal and why: Cat, graceful, majestic, and can be stubborn at times. They're also adventurous and even their bigger cousin's are beautiful.
    Favorite Website: :p,The amount of entertainment, music, inspiration, and creativeness on that site always amazes me.
    Favorite thing about EMC: I know everyone says this but: The people. I love the people here, how selfless people can be when they only know them over the internet, I swear that EMC is a phenomenon especially in a time where the world is full of hate.
    Favorite color and why: Green. In my opinion it shows life. It shows creation, natural beauty, and a treasure trove of hidden secrets.
    Favorite Minecraft feature: Hoppers. Those things are amazing in the way redstone as a whole changed in Minecraft.
    Favorite Minecraft block: Stonebrick and Spruce. I tend to over use these two together in most of my builds. I'm kind of guilty, but they go SO well together just can't help but use them.
    If you were a mob in Minecraft, what would you be and what would you do? Creeper. Instead of destroying thing's I'd help Steve in an epic tale of creating the greatest structures the world of Minecraft had ever seen.
    Favorite Music: I normally listen to fantasy music whenever I'm doing anything creative (writing, building, working on game making) and a various of different genres when playing actual games (deep house, electric house, tropical house).
    Pets? Angel. She's nearing the End but I couldn't be happier as I look back on the time we've spent together. Almost 15 years and despite the injury she's recently acquired she's still strong. She's sorta a metaphor for me to be strong no matter what pain you may suffer.
    If you had to lose one sense, what would it be? Smell. I've never cared for smelling roses or scented candles, but I will miss smelling food.
    Favorite cookie: Soft Sugar. It just melts in your mouth ya know?
    Favorite quote: "Why so serious?"" - Joker, I know, I know. Kind of a weird quote but it does remind me to never take life TOO seriously. You gotta include a little bit of fun and chaos every now and then."
    If you could meet one person, who would it be? I honestly can't answer this cause I don't want to choose between the thousands of members on EMC. I wanna meet all of them, and actually come to know them as people instead of pictures on my screen.
    Additional Comments: Additional* :p(inside joke the questionnaire is spelled wrong).

    Phelps joined EMC on October 8th, 2014 and joined the Contribution Team on July 31st, 2015. "I was looking for a survival server and EMC had the flashiest logo. I'm glad my simple mind brought me to the server!"

    What do you like to do IRL? I enjoy playing soccer and playing video games. I'm also very involved with school. I also work for a landscaping company which is more fun than it sounds like.
    Favorite animal and why: My realistic favorite animal is a dog, they're loving and loyal! My best friend is my Great Dane! My unrealistic favorite animal is a penguin, I am not exactly sure why but they're just awesome :3
    Favorite Website: Other than, I have no idea. I would have to say instagram. I really don't go on any other site.
    Favorite thing about EMC: The people and Community! The people are great, they're all helpful and supportive. The reason I stayed is because the Community is so nice, they're like my family. That would be my absolute favorite thing, I honestly love everything about the server!
    Favorite color and why: Blue, it's my schools color and its the color of the sea. I love the sea and water. Blue is just a relaxing color, it soothes me in a sense.
    Favorite Minecraft feature: Building, I love to build even if some of the things I build don't look that great. If you don't count that as a feature, you're crazy for one, two I would then have to choose multiplayer in general as it allows me to find new people to play with.
    Favorite Minecraft block: Tnt, I hope this is self explanatory...
    If you were a mob in Minecraft, what would you be and what would you do? A villager, I want to understand the "hmm" noises they make. I also want to learn why they make some of their trades! Honestly some are absurd.
    Favorite Music: Ed Sheeran, I enjoy almost all of his songs because I am mushy and like calming things.
    Pets? I have 4 cats, 1 at my moms, 3 at my dads. I have a Great Dane at my dads as well, he is my best friend! My brother has to guinea pigs, they're more annoying than anything.
    If you had to lose one sense, what would it be? Hearing, I would love to hear nothing. The world must seem so calm while you can't hear anything.
    Favorite cookie: The good old classic chocolate chip! Simply delicious.
    Favorite quote: "Football is a matter of life and death, except more important."-Bill Shankly
    If you could meet one person, who would it be? Michael Phelps to see why he stole my last name!

    Qkazooo joined EMC on January 5th, 2015, and joined the Contribution Team on December 6th, 2015. "What brought me to EMC was probably the Town function.

    Tigerstar joined EMC on December 7th, 2013, and he joined the Contribution Team on January 26th, 2017. "It's hard to remember, but I believe it was Planet Minecraft. I had played singleplayer for a long time, and had heard of a mysterious thing called multiplayer. I stayed on my first server until it was shut down a few months after I joined. The 1.3 update had come out, and servers that updated were hard to find. So when I found EMC, I joined... and everything since then is history."
