    iamcavie joined the Moderation team on March 31st, 2015. He joined EMC on June 13th, 2013. He found the server through his wife. "Well, she played minecraft before me but mainly only single player. In the early days she got sick of MMOs we were playing and wanted another online game, I then went looking for a Minecraft server for her (3 years ago?) and found Empire. No PvP, mature, professionally run and a no drama clause, that sounded perfect. I set her up and went back to what I was doing.
    After a many months of 'you should play' 'this is fun' and being told about every part of the game even though I had never played, I gave in. Bought an account and logged in to empire..."

    What do you like to do IRL? Computer games & hands on work, i.e.: working on cars (not as much as I used to) metal work /welding/fabricating/ inventing/woodwork/electronics / drawing /reading and more gaming :). Spending time with my family, of course.
    Favorite animal and why: Don't really have one. I like cats and dogs but could happily live without em. Although we do have 1 dog and 2 cats....
    Favorite Website: Google.... well it's the one I visit the most.
    Favorite thing about EMC: Good question, I've been asking myself this one for a long time. As sometimes I have a break but I always came back. I'd say: the towns (safe place for everyone to build and everyone to be- a Community). Also the maturity, and no drama policy.
    Favorite color and why: Black. Goes with everything for every occasion.
    Favorite Minecraft feature: The freedom to do what you want.
    Favorite Minecraft block: Quartz. Definitely quartz!
    If you were a mob in Minecraft, what would you be and what would you do? Hmm, something you haven't gotten yet - I'd be something that happily sits off in the distance that can see what's going on (so not underground), warm climate, not hot, not cold, will defend itself if provoked but won't kill you.
    Favorite music: At the moment probably techno remixes.
    Pets? As above. 1 dog & 2 cats.
    If you had to lose one sense, what would it be? Common sense? naaa, probably smell.
    Need eyes for nearly everything, ears for music and listening to TV, people etc. Taste - would moss nice foods. So probably smell, where I work is a bit smelly so yeah, would miss that the least.
    Favorite cookie: anything Chocolate.
    Favorite quote: "Kewl." (and old friend spelled it that way once and it stuck with me).
    But real quote; not sure, I use a lot from TV without thinking.
    If you could meet one person, who would it be? My dad. He died when i was 19, I'd like to meet him again.

    JDHallows joined the Moderation Team on August 1st, 2016. He joined EMC on March 22nd, 2015. "I had only been playing Minecraft for 3 weeks before I joined EMC. I wanted to join a server to be a part of a Community, and to have fun with others. After searching through multiple servers on Minecraft server ranking sites, I found EMC and joined. I instantly fell in love with the server, and have had fun since!"

    What do you like to do IRL? I am a full time student at Davenport University, working towards a Computer Information Systems degree with a focus in Computer Programming.
    Favorite animal and why: Hmm, never really thought about it, but I would have to say owls. I love the way owls have been portrayed in culture as wise creatures, and I try to aspire to be that too!
    Favorite Website:, definitely. I love watching my shows on Netflix (when I am not playing on EMC that is).
    Favorite thing about EMC: I love the Community. It is the reason why I came and the reason why I have stayed.
    Favorite color and why: I love the color burnt orange (also known as copper). It feels so warm and pleasant, and reminds me of the smell and taste of home baked goods.
    Favorite Minecraft feature: Definitely the ability to run in circles. Not only is this my favorite feature, it is also one of my favorite activities! I spend a lot of time running in circles inside of Minecraft.
    Favorite Minecraft block: I love Sea Lanterns. They are my favorite light block and I really like the texture they have.
    Pets?: None, my motto is "I love other people's pets."
    If you had to lose one sense, what would it be?: Smell, definitely smell. It will affect my ability to taste, but it will still work well enough, I will still be able to see, hear, and touch things.
