Meet the Admins
  • Administrators make up the highest rank on the Empire. They have total power although each one has a specific job (Community Manager or Lead Developer) that dictates their primary focus on the Empire. They manage the Empire and keep it running smoothly.

    Rank: Lead Developer/Owner
    Aikar is the Lead Developer and Owner of Empire Minecraft. He is responsible for overseeing the developer team and custom coding all of our amazing features. He is also the owner of EMC. He joined on Jan 20th, 2012. It was the second Minecraft server he tried on a server list. “The first one required obtaining some builder rank that was not clear to me, and since I never played single player (Jumped straight to multiplayer), I had no idea what to do when I got Minecraft.”. Outside of EMC, Aikar is a Software Engineer.

    What do you like to do IRL? Outside of Programming, Fitness and playing the game Ingress (Gaming + Fitness), though Max never wants to play with me
    Favorite animal and why: Cats. They are our secret masters and all...
    Favorite Website: I don't use Reddit or YouTube or any of those other silly sites. It's pretty much programming stuff and EMC.
    Favorite thing about EMC: Community of course. It's what drives me to continue doing this, to make as many as I can happy.
    Favorite color and why: &9 Blue - well a lighter shade. Just always liked it, and used it for the original "Eternia" I created 7-8 years ago.
    Favorite Minecraft feature: TNT. I like to make things go boom...
    Favorite Minecraft block: Pre 1.8 Double Stone Slab.
    If you were a mob in Minecraft, what would you be and what would you do? I would be a flying ball of TNT, launching Ender Balls at people that blow up like TNT on impact. There would be lot of holes.
    Favorite music: Electronic music in general. Vocal Trance primarily, but I also enjoy Dubstep to get groovy to.
    Some of my favorite songs are:
    Andain - Beautiful Things
    ATC - All Around the World
    Tiesto - Elements of Life
    Armin van Buuren – In And Out of Love
    + More, but I'm not a music-phile so I'm forgetting names atm.
    And sometimes I like to listen to Rap, but mostly Eminem specifically. While I didn't live a rough life like he did, I can understand it and feel for people who do live/lived like he has. So the lyrics are empowering to me.
    Shadow - Black Cat
    Max - Ninja Wall Haxing Grey Cat
    Boxxy (Named after the internet girl due to energy levels) - Overly attached black dog glued to my hip. If I wasn't married, she would be my "Overly attached girlfriend."
    If you had to lose one sense, what would it be? Pain. It is a sense Think of the power if you don't feel pain mwhahaha.
    Favorite cookie flavor: Peanut Butter
    Favorite quote: "Hack the Planet" - Dade Murphy aka Zero Cool
    If you could meet one person, who would it be? Barack Obama. I still support him and agree with his ideas, and feel bad for him having to deal with the crap that he does of Congress.

    Rank: Community Manager
    Krysyy is the Community Manager of Empire Minecraft. She is responsible for ensuring that the players in the Community are getting along. In addition, she handles events, contest organization, overseeing and selecting staff members, managing the Teams and their projects, etc. She joined EMC on Jan 16th, 2012. Ignoramoose got her to join, because she didn’t want to play pvp, as she doesn’t like people being mean and killing her for her things. “He couldn't believe that I hadn't played minecraft back "in the day" so he said. We gave it a shot, and I was hooked.” Outside of EMC, Krysyy is a Lab Technician, a Phlebotomist and a Moose wrangler =P

    What do you like to do IRL? Play Minecraft, I love to read and watch Doctor Who.
    Favorite animal and why: Varies. I love the odd animals like platypus or mantis shrimp (not actually an animal). Out of the domestic animals, I would have to say a cat. Why? I can leave for a few days and I'm not worried about it tearing up the house.
    Favorite Website:
    Favorite thing about EMC: The Community and the ability to see their builds.
    Favorite color and why: BLUE! All shades of it. Why? I really don't know. I love the calmness of it in the light blue sense, but then the drama of it with aquamarine. I also love the ocean and the ocean has all sorts of blue in it. Oh and the TARDIS is blue =P
    On a side note, I am also an extreme fan of the color Royal Purple. Not my admin purple, but just a bit deeper. Something about it screams elegance. It was also the color of my prom dress in my senior year of high school.
    I also love Maroon, because let's face it, I AM a Member of the Fighting Texas Aggie Class of 2012! WHOOP!
    Favorite Minecraft feature: The Save Button
    Favorite Minecraft block: Ice or Lapis (the old lapis before the new texture that makes it look like tiles)
    If you were a mob in Minecraft, what would you be and what would you do? I would be a Red Dragon. Does this need explanation?
    Favorite music: Country Music and Broadway. Anything that tells a story without making me have a headache...
    Pets? 2 cats (Zelda and Zoidberg).
    If you had to lose one sense, what would it be? This is a toughy. I would say smell. If moose could live without it for years, then I figure I would be able to as well.
    Favorite cookie flavor: White Chocolate Macadamia Nut
    Favorite quote: Hmmm...The Fourth Doctor once said "What's the point in being a grownup if you can't be childish sometimes"
    If you could meet one person, who would it be? The Doctor.
