    Slvr joined EMC on July 22nd, 2015, and joined the Moderation Team on January 2nd, 2017. She is also a part of the Contribution Team, and has been a member of it prior to becoming a moderator. "I began searching for a server that allowed me to play my way. I stumbled across EMC and really loved it. It's the first server I joined and I've stayed with it ever since."

    What do you like to do IRL? In real life, I mainly write, draw, and game. I love to write fantastical stories and create images of a similar caliber and I can't even begin to describe how important gaming has become to me.
    Favorite animal and why: The common housecat. I have always lived around cats, and have found them simply to be the most relatable of animals... perhaps being surrounded by four at the moment also sways me.
    Favorite Website: This Website was the first I ever got into as far as forums go and I've been on it for years upon years. It's fantastic, especially for Pokemon.
    Favorite thing about EMC: The tight-knit Community. Everyone feels approachable in their own right and it's the kindest and most efficient server I've played on. This sense of close Community is what keeps me coming back and striving to help.
    Favorite color and why: My favorite color is red, because it's a bold, powerful, and attractive color.
    Favorite Minecraft feature: the ability to tame certain mobs - like wolves and ocelots. I don't know why, they have to be used very well to be useful, but I find utility mobs fascinating and so fun to have around.
    Favorite Minecraft block: red sand. It's a vibrant red-orange, it's only found in the astonishing mesa biome, and it just looks really cool.
    If you were a mob in Minecraft, what would you be and what would you do? What do you mean if? I'm already an enderman... In all seriousness, I'd be an Enderman. I imagine enderman are highly stratified and curious creatures, so I'd probably hang around players and watch them work. I imagine viewing builders from an outsiders point of view would be quite fascinating!
    Favorite music: Alternative rock is typically the music I listen to. Namely, Imagine Dragons.
    Pets? As if right now, I have four cats and seven fish. Two-Socks, Piper, Sierri, and Macho being the four cats. Two-Socks is my baby, he's a lean male gray tabby. Piper is definitely my mother's cat, and he's a large, heavyset Maine coon like cat. Sierri equally disdains everyone but we love her for it, and she's a fluffy tabby. Macho is a male orange tabby who mainly lives outside. He's the oldest.
    If you had to lose one sense, what would it be? Taste. I could play Minecraft without taste, right? This would also probably help me eat healthier too...
    Favorite cookie? Chocolate chip. I am a sucker for anything chocolate.
    Favorite quote:"You either die the hero, or live long enough to see yourself become the villain."
    If you could meet one person, who would it be? I honestly wish that I could meet Markiplier (a fairly famous YouTuber). It may sound silly, but having followed his activity for a while now, it's easy for most to see that Mark is an eccentric character with a good heart - and I wish I could speak with him in person to get to know him more. I feel like I could learn from him.

    xXvexenXx joined EMC on March 23rd, 2013, and joined the Moderation Team on January 2nd, 2017. "Divine intervention. I was a little hardcore with MMORPGs back in the day and was looking for a change to break the addiction when my kids said I should try Minecraft. I mocked it until I tried it. Now my addictive personality is focused on MC. Short of a small 400 day break a bit ago, I've been on MC and EMC for many years. What brought me to EMC? I want Vanilla but with customizations. EMC offers me exactly what I want and it was family friendly."

    What do you like to do IRL?: Family, Work and Game. In that order.
    Favorite animal and why: I have this new fascination with Llama's now for some reason. Dang you 1.11 update...
    Favorite Website: Not really a favorite. I would guess if I had to say which I spend the most time on besides EMCs.
    Favorite thing about EMC: Vanilla feel, awesome staff, great players and now the anti-grief makes it all come together.
    Favorite color and why: pink. Yes, I said it! As a male, people ask why. It all stems back to a super Birthday Cake my grandmother made for me when I was young.
    Favorite Minecraft feature: Horses. Basic but huge impact on vanilla playing for me.
    Favorite Minecraft block: Quartz Block. Enough said...
    If you were a mob in Minecraft, what would you be and what would you do?: Polar Bear.. because if you come whack me with a stick all you're getting is eaten.
    Favorite music:I'm from the metal generation. Rammstein, Static-X, Metallica, etc.
    Pets?: Two cats, one dog and two sons. Yea, I went there. :)
    If you had to lose one sense, what would it be?: Smell.
    Favorite cookie: Sugar cookie. Mmmmm.
    Favorite quote: "Don't be a dumbass!There are enough of those in the world."My quote used daily for my kids.
    If you could meet one person, who would it be?: It would have been Steve Irwin. RIP. Inspirational for me for wildlife preservation.
