Ahh..it's that month of the year again.. when leaves fall of trees, and every day gets grayer and grayer, and yet the joy I get from playing on the server never dies out, today is the 3rd of October 2018.. and exactly 5 years ago I joined. Looking back at it, it's been the most wonderful years I've had, not only in game.. but in my personal life. And tho, today when we look back.. 5 years hasn't been a lot.. no, not at all.. I can still remember the first time I even heard of the server.. just some random ad on a website on finding servers, and it wasn't the first one I tried to join either.. and yet, it was the only one I still constantly rush back to, when I want to just have a great chat with some friends, The people on the servers have defined me as who I am today, they have shaped me, as I rush forth towards being like the people around me in some way.. and oh boy, have I been around you for a long time.. for about 1825 days or 43800 hours, or 2628000 seconds I have been part of this wonderful community, And I must thank some people personally, as I think they are the ones who anchored me down, the ones who have made my mind always think back to the great craic we've had on the server... SFMosquito or as I knew you at the time.. SmokeAndMirrors, you are the first person I've met on the server, and must I add.. you are probably the reason to why I am on the server, as you went out of your way to basically guide me through the application form. At the time you were just a humble green coat, as I am today.. but as we all know, you've blossomed into the marvelous Spectral OP we all know and love today.. I've probably spent countless hours just watching you build Underwood.. and you were a huge part of my experience on the server for the past 5 years, as I streamed forwards to be as good of a builder as you are, hopefully I have somewhat Improved And I'm sorry if sometimes I may have poked you a little too much to build more parkour, or.. well.. fix my Underwood house.... But overall, the server would be very different without you, And I'm glad I've gotten to know such a marvelous ghost. Fubaka, ah yes.. don't think I've forgotten that in-fact, you were the OP at the time when I joined, and as a new player to MC at the time(and previously being banned from a server;3) you opened up the second page of the community for me, you showed me that the Mods and OPs aren't just the big boys who make sure everything stay in check, but are also great people to get to know.. and are human too;3. I've always marveled at your dedication to large projects.. I've tried to do it many times myself, but I never got far.. and yet, you've done so many great things, I couldn't list them all.. You're another reason to why I have stayed around, and I'm grateful that I got to know you, Stonedude, we've spent a long time together on the server, some of my most fond memories with you would be our deadly dirt maze.. which.. (we may or may not have killed a mod in).. but anyways we have had lots of great craic together, so much in-fact.. I can't actually remember everything :3 Thanks for being positive, and lifting may day at times of need) Tomousee, the man with the beard, we've enjoyed a fair amount of time together on the server, and I've learned a lot of none server related things for you too in-fact! and even tho you haven't finished most of your projects.. I'd like to add, that they've always looked amazing.. your building style is different from smokes.. and yet, the times when you aren't online, I still come back to run around your builds and take in the amount of effort and projects you have proceeded to fulfill, It was always great to talk to you.. even if it was about something absolutely pointless, and I always look forward towards having more chats) Our two Zombies, my undead friends, and quite largely.. two very stiff opponents during events, I'm glad I got to know you two, It's a complete pleasure to play along side you, we have had good times together here, and I think, just as all the people here, you're amazing to talk to, we've had many conversations, about many things, and I don't remember any.. because just like a good movie, you'll forget about it in a week.. but if it's bad, it'll stick to being bad through at your life.. well, at least that's how it works for me). The Just Clan, I haven't learned all of the names of yet ;3 but I'm glad I've gotten to know you you're a family within a community.. which for me, is very very tight, somewhat like a family too :3, and I think that's awesome, I've never had the opportunity to play with people I know in the real-world.. well, I have.. but my brother didn't stay for long . And yet, I see the wonderful people that all of you are, the different characters and people, with similar names, and yet such different and amazing people, I'm glad I've gotten to know all of you. Peace_Panda, my Co-Owner of BAI, or really.. but dear dear friend, we have spent a lot of time together, and not only playing MC, but other games too, and yet.. you haven't gotten bored or sick of me.. the times I asked you to do manual labor, like dig out a large block of land.. you didn't say a word to me, you just say 'sure' and that's what amazes me, your a very kind person, and a true friend, who comes to someone in time of need, we've held a successful business together through out Tesseract, and even if it may have died out by the end, it brought me great pride to be part of it, and for you to be my co-worker, or as I've said, in reality, a true friend. Zolyx.. yes, it's finally your time, you're the man who made all of this possible, who made it possible to meet all these people, who made it possible, for me to become not just a member of a server, but be part of a tight community.. and I thank you for that, I think we sometimes forget to thank the people who have a large effect on our lives, and because the server did.. I forget to thank you for the countless events you have hosted for us.. for all those great times we have spent together, and even if we may have our slight disagreements.. (Like that one time you put me into friendly mode and I couldn't PVP people.. in a PVP event... yes, I don't forget.) you're the beating heart of the server, as without you.. well, there wouldn't be a server.. there wouldn't be that one in a thousand ads I could have seen, that came to my attention, there wouldn't be the countless hours I spent playing here, and there wouldn't be an opportunity for me to meet all these people.. so thank you, thank you for being a kind host.. and not so evil of a tree. ) And there are many more of you! And don't think I've forgotten about you.. I believe the server isn't anything special.. It's just a bunch of numbers on someones computer. But the people. The people are the blood that brings the oxygen around, they make the server live, they make it breath, they bring emotions, joy, anger, sadness. All of these great emotions! and none should be overlooked, as they are all what makes this server thrive within. And that's what is important in my eyes.. not a new world, not some cool new event. But the people I will experience this with. And those of you who I've only gotten to know, I welcome you to this fantastic place, and I hope the time I spend on it with you will be pure positivity And, well.. what I'm I trying to conclude with.. you're a wonderful bunch of people, everyone who's like a brick in the wall, without a single brick, well.. it would be different and for me.. there would be a large hole in it, so you know.. I joined for the server, but I stayed for the people. This post isn't about me leaving or anything.. I just wanted to recall the five years I've spent on this server.. And as I could simply put it in two words: Thank you.
