How did you hear about server?: I was looking for whitelisted communities to join here on the forum.
What got you interested in the server?: I recently joined a server that promised to be many things it has not really lived up to. After some... interesting decisions and only a few short weeks the server has gone pretty much dead. I haven't given up all hope yet but I was really looking for a more community-oriented, more mature, and simply more existent playerbase. I think this sounds like it fits the bill! And a great plus is that the vanilla feel you guys are going for doesn't seem like it's going to make transactions difficult (I see sign shop is set up :D) which is my main gripe with strict-vanilla SMP.
The fact that you guys are a community of builders and have custom terrain also sounds great for my play style!
What is your favorite part of minecraft?: I love the creative freedom that Minecraft provides for you, especially in building. Sharing ideas and making visions come to life is such a fantastic thing to do, and combining that with the challenge and subsequent reward of creating in survival is a fantastic experience.
Do you have a preferred building style?: I prefer building in a way that embraces the landscape and biome of its area instead of trying to push traditional IRL architectural styles onto areas that don't match them. I think living with the land through the builds helps create a feeling unique to the area and makes builds and cities more interesting and worth visiting. I have also gotten more into interior decorating recently. I guess it's the finer things!
What do you hope to get out of this server?: I hope to find a community which I can build up community projects with and have to develop good looking and well-functioning infrastructure to become close-knit with the various people joining and to transform the Minecraft world with.
What can you bring to this server?: I can bring my always-improving build technique and style to the server
Tell us about yourself!: I'm a friendly and overachieving rising senior. While Minecraft isn't the biggest thing in my life, it's one of my favorite video games and the thing I play most often to escape from the responsibilities of "real life" and to meet and engage with others from across the world. I'm coming into college application season and I'm a master procrastinator, but I'm sure I'll get the job done!
Add pictures of your builds (optional): I don't have much right now (having wiped for 1.13) but I've attached (or tried to) some pictures of a split-floor fireplace I have been developing for my house in an extreme hills biome on a server.
I hope that I can see you all soon on the server. One of my favorite things is joining at the start of great servers so I can help build the world up. Regardless, best of building to everyone. Have a nice day and thanks for considering me ;
