Alright, here we go.
Discord name: ArcticNight#4469
Preferred playstyle: I've generally always been more of a gatherer. My preferred way of playing SMP is working closely together in more intimate groups of people, sharing everything and working towards common goals, rather than doing things on my own - this is why this server seems like a good fit for me (I also strongly prefer pure vanilla).
I like assisting people and getting everything they need in order to build freely. I can do menial tasks like mining for pure stone for endless hours - whatever needs to be done, I'm usually your guy. I never spent a lot of time building, but I have been wanting to do it more, and since I've done it so little it's possible I could improve a lot with some actual practice.
Time spent playing: I've played since the day the game went from alpha to beta. In total I've only played one or two years, and most of it was spent in the first few years, so since I made my big return lately I've mostly tried to catch up on updates.
What I can offer the server: I'm a friendly and mature person who's easy to get along with and never a problem to have on your server. I'm a hard worker and can easily invest tons of time when I find it interesting to play. If a server is active and lasting I am very dedicated and my goal is to be part of building a big world where it's actually a serious endeavor that isn't abandoned right away. As an example of this, in the link in my forum signature is a forum we made for a project server I was co-founder of back in the day. We spent a couple of years working on it, and when people abandoned the project I did my best to keep it alive for as long as I could. I can be valuable in the sense that I always want to have things go well and stay alive and move forward, and I always stay positive and refuse to give up.
I also tend to have ideas for builds, it's just executing them that has been the problem, with me mostly letting others do that in the past.
I hope you deem my application worthy and think I can be a good addition to your server. I would do all I can to make sure I don't let you down if given a chance to join your crew. If I'm not what you're looking for I completely understand and wish you the best of luck
