    EmperorMelon joined the Moderation Team on March 31st, 2015. He joined EMC on August, 31st, 2014. "My girlfriend sent me on a mission to find a server after we got sick of hosting our own servers. i googled and found EMC and found it quite interesting."

    What do you like to do IRL? Spending time with my girlfriend and daughter. Playing Minecraft, playing my guitar and reading Wikipedia.
    Favorite animal and why: Uhhh a meerkat because of the funny adverts in UK television.
    Favorite Website: Icelandic: (football/soccer site)
    Favorite thing about EMC: The people that hang out on the server, that is what has kept me playing on EMC.
    Favorite color and why: Green (no joke) and because it was the color of my favorite sport team when I was young.
    Favorite Minecraft feature: Uhm... I love redstone... but I am a complete redstone noob so I just watch others make machines.
    Favorite Minecraft block: Pre-1.8: paintings. Post 1.8: banners!
    If you were a mob in Minecraft, what would you be and what would you do? I would be a villager... minding my farm... trading with this strange newcomer. Trying to screw him over before realizing he is taking my ems away for some cheap merchandise, then lead a rebellion against his evil ways and make a castle then realize... I have become him. Then I would make a villager farm. Simple.
    Favorite music: Classical music and 90's grunge rock.
    Pets? I have 2 cats called Grima and Safira.
    Favorite cookie: Oreo cookie... om nom nom nom... now this is just an evil question made to fire up the cookie monster inside everyone of us.
    Favorite quote: It is from Hávamál, I will post both the original and English translation

    "Haltur ríður hrossi,
    hjörð rekur handarvanur,
    daufur vegur og dugir.
    Blindur er betri
    en brenndur sé:
    Nýtur manngi nás."

    "The lame can ride horse, the handless drive cattle,
    the deaf one can fight and prevail,
    'tis happier for the blind than for him on the bale-fire,
    but no man hath care for a corpse."
    If you could meet one person, who would it be? Wish I could say hi to my dad again, and for him to meet my daughter.

    FDNY21 joined EMC on November 25th, 2012, and he joined the Moderation Team on August 1st, 2016. He is also a part of the Contribution Team. "captaincraft300 had played EMC for a short while and really enjoyed it so I bought Minecraft and was soon playing EMC myself. I really enjoyed it and the Community was great!".

    What do you like to do IRL? I like to play Minecraft, talk to friends and fantasize about cars of course!
    Favorite animal and why: Probably the sloth because they have such a funny but cute look about them. Just look at that little face, how could you resist!?
    Favorite Website: Empire Minecraft, YouTube, eBay - and more! Couldn't choose just one!
    Favorite thing about EMC: The Community for it is very close-knit and very friendly, I have made some great friends here over the years.
    Favorite color and why: I would have to say red if I was choosing just one color. I wouldn't like to limit myself to one color though, every color is nice in its own way and works for different things.
    Favorite Minecraft feature: I just like the whole "survival" instinct of the game, I think it is a feature of Minecraft that really gives you a rush when playing.
    Favorite Minecraft block: Dragon Egg!
    If you were a mob in Minecraft, what would you be and what would you do? I would be a creeper because my Minecraft skin, for a long time now, has been a rainbow creeper in a white suit. As some may already know, I used to use a rainbow creeper skin that I found online, so the creeper aspect just stuck with me.
    Favorite music: I listen to a very wide variation of music. A few names that I've listened to for years and always enjoy just to give you a taster - Green Day, Linkin Park, Muse, The Beatles, Depeche Mode, Nirvana, The Monkees - and many more!
    Pets? I had a pet cat called Lola, though she is sadly no longer with us. We have another cat now called Panther, just as mischievous!
    If you had to lose one sense, what would it be? Probably taste. The other senses are useful for daily life, taste just seems like a luxury!
    Favorite cookie: Chocolate chip cookies are great. We all know that raisin cookies are evil in diguise...
    Favorite quote: My granddad once said, "It's not about knowing the answer, it's about knowing where to find it".
    If you could meet one person, who would it be? Walter Rohrl, to talk to him about his quattro rally driving days!

    Our Community is active in many places.
