Meet the Staff/Teams (Retired Members)
  • Just in case they come back, we'd might as well have them saved somewhere. :p

    Sambish first joined the Stream Team on Jun 28th, 2014. He joined EMC on Feb 3rd, 2013. "What brought me to EMC? Good question you ask. As far as I can remember I was looking at when I saw EMC in the advertising section. From then on I took the "risk" to join EMC and over a couple of months I saw my self grow. "

    What do you like to do IRL? In real life, I enjoy maintaining various networks, everything technical based. Being a DJ and producing.
    Favorite animal and why: My favorite animal is a Gorilla. I'm fascinated by how they work and how they act like humans. I believe that we may possibly of descended from that group of animal.
    Favorite website: Wow, tricky question. Very tricky question. There's many websites that I could say are my favorite, it could be my hosting company ( , YouTube, Beatport or Soundcloud. But I'd have to say that it's . This is my favorite website due to the fact that it assists me in many ways, it's helped me to build my reputation as a DJ up and get noticed.
    Favorite thing about EMC: My favorite thing about EMC is the Community. EMC is constantly striving to progress and the Community plays a great part in that aspect.
    Favorite color and why: My favorite colour (color) is Cyan. I have always like Blue since a young age and I think Cyan is a cool variation of it.
    Favorite Minecraft feature: My favorite Minecraft feature would have to be Multiplayer. It's connected many of us together to have the great communities that we have today.
    Favorite Minecraft block: My favorite Minecraft block is Red Wool, I have no idea why but it looks awesome.
    If you were a mob in Minecraft, what would you be? If I was a mob I would be an Enderman. I love how they teleport around and sneak up on people. They're also slightly technical so that's a reason to like them :)
    Favorite music: My favorite genre of music is EDM, mostly Trance. Being a DJ means that I mostly like music ranging from 128-130BPM, partially because it's the easiest to mix with and it sounds good:) My favorite DJ is Armin Van Buuren but I'm on the watch out for Dyro and Vicetone who I believe are 2 of the biggest upcoming artists.
    Pets? I have 4 fish, 1 dog, 1 guinea pig and 5 hamsters :)
    If you had to lose one sense, what would it be? If I had to lose one sense it would be taste, I would probably be the healthiest person on earth then because I wouldn't hate to eat anything that doesn't taste nice. Though sometimes loosing your sense of smell might be good :p
    Favorite cookie: Dark Chocolate. I'll leave it as that.
    Favorite quote: "Things don’t have to change the world to be important." - Steve Jobs.
    If you could meet one person, who would it be? If I could meet any one person, it would probably be Bill Gates. I'm inspired by how he's built up Microsoft but not become a money making giant, instead he spends his time providing relief to charity and poorer countries.

    Matherox joined the Stream Team on April 18th, 2015. He joined EMC on Jun 6, 2012. "When I first bought Minecraft, I quickly got bored with single player mode and wanted to join a Community. I then looked on a Minecraft server list and saw EMC. It looked like a pretty cool server, so I decided to give it a try."

    What do you like to do IRL? I hang out with friends, spend time with family, and like to go bike riding.
    Favorite animal and why: A bird, because they can walk and also fly, so they can go almost anywhere.
    Favorite website:
    Favorite thing about EMC: The huge Community
    Favorite color and why: Green, since it is the color of nature.
    Favorite Minecraft feature: I like everything about Minecraft, but I mostly like the server feature.
    Favorite Minecraft block: Iron blocks, since you can get lots of them, but they are still valuable.
    If you were a mob in Minecraft, what would you be and what would you do? I would be an enderman, because I'd be able to teleport, build, and fight.
    Favorite music: Techno
    Pets? I have 2 dogs and 8 cats.
    If you had to lose one sense, what would it be? Magnetoception, because who needs to feel magnetic fields?

    QuarterStop joined EMC on Aug 15th, 2012, and joined the Contribution Team on May 23rd, 2014. "I was searching for a cool minecraft server and this was the second one I stumbled upon, the first one just confused me extremely with no tutorial or directions so I eventually left, and joined EMC. "

    What do you like to do IRL? I love to ride quads, go snowmobiling, boating, and hiking in my spare time. I love the outdoors.. just not the bugs.
    Favorite animal and why: I love dogs, they are man's best friend. My dog is the best I could ever ask for, she always listens and we barely had to train her.
    Favorite website: Netflix, my life would be empty if I couldn't watch Netflix in my spare time.
    Favorite thing about EMC: I love the Community, and the bonds that many members have formed through EMC. Many members are easily approached and do not have a problem with asking for help.
    Favorite color and why: I like blue, a neutral color that isn't too bright or dark.
    Favorite Minecraft feature: Multiplayer, without multiplayer I would have given up on the game entirely when I died, and lost my little island I was living on in singleplayer.
    Favorite Minecraft block: Sandstone, it can usually be incorporated with many other blocks that I like, like stone brick, glowstone.
    If you were a mob in Minecraft, what would you be and what would you do? I'd be a chicken, they use to wander around Town laying eggs wherever and bothering you haha. #tbt
    Favorite music: I like country music, and pop music.
    Pets? One dog.
    If you had to lose one sense, what would it be? Smell probably.

    mba2012 joined EMC on Mar 24th, 2012 and he joined the Contribution Team on May 23rd, 2014. "I saw a friend playing it, so I decided to buy Minecraft to play EMC "

    What do you like to do IRL? I don't do much, mainly sit around watching you tube, however I do a fair bit of programming when I can be bothered. I like going hiking and kayaking when (again) I can be bothered.
    Favorite animal and why: Probably a pig, or something like that
    Favorite website: Wikipedia, there's so much randomness on it.
    Favorite thing about EMC: The Community.
    Favorite color and why: Space Grey, it just looks cool
    Favorite Minecraft feature: Multiplayer
    Favorite Minecraft block: Stone slabs.
    Favorite music: Alternative, electronic, cinematic music. I really like Coldplay and Olafur Arnalds.
    If you had to lose one sense, what would it be? Probably touch.
    Favorite cookie: Raspberry Cheesecake.
    If you could meet one person, who would it be? There's a few people I'd love to meet. It'd be cool to meet someone like Richard Branson or Barack Obama.

    DaJaKoe joined EMC on Jul 3rd, 2012, and he joined the Contribution team on Aug 11th, 2014. "I was looking around for a popular Minecraft server, and the IP for SMP2 popped up onto the Site I was on."

    What do you like to do IRL? I like to play a few games, I play with my pets, I'm in the final week (when this was being written) of working as a volunteer for a local branch of my political party, I write/conceptualize as a hobby, and I do a lot of thinking on a bunch of different topics in the world.
    Favorite animal and why: While I think tigers are awesome, it's hard to beat such a thing like a Leopon.
    Favorite website: I hang around news sites and Reddit for the most part.
    Favorite thing about EMC: I really like how EMC isn't a minigame server, and doesn't make use of command blocks.
    Favorite color and why: Blue. It's the color of the sky and most of the observable sea.
    Favorite Minecraft feature: Bonemeal. That stuff is a lifesaver, and is invaluable in making a quick and resourceful start in Minecraft. It grows wood and food, two necessities that are in constant demand.
    Favorite Minecraft block: Wood. Just imagine if everything wood related disappeared. No planks, no logs, no saplings, no sticks, no torches, no tools, no crafting tables, no boats. You can't beat wood.
    If you were a mob in Minecraft, what would you be and what would you do? If I were a mob in Minecraft, I would probably be a Spider-Jockey. Those things can be difficult to fight without a bow, partly since they have a ranged weapon and a quick speed. On a harder difficulty, which I haven't tried, taking on multiple would be like trying to fight off the Mongol Horde.
    Favorite music: I listen to Nightwish, Florence and the Machine, and Maroon 5. I will look up songs that I hear on the radio as well.
    Pets? I have two cats and two dogs. The dogs are both beagles, one bred for show and one bred for hunting. My first cat is a norwegian forest cat, the other being a short-haired tabby.
    If you had to lose one sense, what would it be? While I hope I don't lose it, I see the sense of taste as the most expendable.
    Favorite cookie: Tollhouse homemade recipe for chocolate chip.
    Favorite quote: While I do like a few good quotes from some bad people, my favorite is the following: "A still more glorious dawn awaits; not a sunrise, but a galaxy rise." -Carl Sagan.
    If you could meet one person, who would it be? For the living: I would say Sir Christopher Lee. For the dead: I would go with Nikola Tesla.
