    1) When did you start playing Minecraft and why? Tell us about the person that got you hooked or the gameplay element that inspired you. What brings you back each night?
    I started playing back at the end of 2010, I saw the game and played the trial / alpha in a browser and was like oh that's interesting. The version i played didn't have much to it (no mobs) and was very brightly coloured and quite intense to look at so I didn't play for long. Then about a week later my friend at university mentioned it again said he had it and was enjoying it, explained there was more to it than the browser version, so I bought it. I remember my first build quite vividly, a terrible dirt castle with a moat without water in it and a mineshaft straight down the middle of the inside.​

    2) Tell us about your favorite block or item, the one you can't live without, and why?
    Block = Beacon with haste II, speed mining stuff is fun / relaxing and I end up clearing out huge areas with it.
    Item = My Bow, I like trying to hit things far away and practice my aim, it's fun to hit a friend from a mile away and then hear the *ding* noise. Although with recent changes, I find my bow is too powerful to do that and not kill my friends. So it's and addiction I'm trying to kick.​

    3) Tell us about your Minecraft style -- What do you like to do in Minecraft? Are you a farmer, a builder, a redstoner, or maybe a jack-of-all-trades? What's your go-to when you first start on a map? Is there anything funny or unique you add to a map that you think most other people don't do?
    I like working on large projects, like farms (iron titan / witch farm / wither skeleton farm / guardian farm etc). I try to make my builds look nice and have recently started doing themed / aesthetic builds to spread my base out and make it look like a settlement or something.​

    4) Tell us all about the coolest thing you've ever done or built in Minecraft by yourself. Then tell us about the coolest thing you ever did with a group.
    Coolest thing I've done was clear a 35 diameter circle hole in the roof of the nether (through the bedrock) with the old dark oak sapling trick. It took far too long and was very tedious but the result was worth it (until the map reset about a month later). http://i.imgur.com/dJpKc70.png that was the design of it, although that picture was taken in a creative world.​

    5) When you're not playing MC, what other things do you like to do (gaming, television/YouTube, other creative indoor or outdoor hobbies...)? Are there other video games you like to play?
    I enjoy board games and have a collection of 20-25 games myself, I like watching series on netflix / amazon prime and I'm usually doing that while playing games. I have too many computer games to list, the main ones I play at the moment are:
    • The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ (got 100% on it :D )
    • Civilization V and VI
    • Rocket League
    • Pyre
    • Planet Coaster
    • Big Pharma
    6) Tell us a bit about your home life - no need to be too detailed and feel free to let us know if you'd rather keep this private. Do you work or go to school (or both)? Do you have a roommate, spouse, kids, parents (or others) that you live with? What kind of real life responsibilities or obligations do you have?
    At the moment it's my summer holiday before starting my masters at university. So apart from preparing for that, and a trip to Florida coming up I'll be playing games.
    7) Have you played on other MC servers before?
    Yes, a few over the years.

    7a) If yes, what was the longest you were ever on a server? How often did you log in? What did you like about it? What did you dislike? Why did you leave?
    Longest was probably a couple of years, the world reset but it was the same server group for a while. I was active but one of the few that persisted through the quiet times. I enjoyed the community, being able to make something and show it / share it with people. I disliked the world resets, but I put up with them as it brought other peoples activity back up. I left because the host / person who paid for it just went quiet and stopped talking to anyone online, also they didn't update the server when a new patch rolled out (still haven't heard from him).
    7b) If no, what has kept you from trying out other servers before?
    8) Why would you like to be on our server? What do you think we have to offer that fits your playstyle?
    You operate your world in a manner I think is good, avoiding world resets and moving around in the same world. This has always bothered me on old servers, I'd build something quite large that took me a long time and then people would push for a world reset because they got bored.
    9) What does 'community' mean to you? What do you think you can contribute to our community?
    Community is a place where everyone feels welcome and respected and they are able to relax around everyone else.
    10) How did you find us and what did you see that made you want to apply?
    Rale's video & Jaabber joining here.
    11) Have you ever used Discord before (or something similar, like Skype, Ventrilo, or Teamspeak)? Do you have any issues with joining the WhoCraft Discord? What do you think of being in a chat channel that keeps us all connected daily?
    Yeah I've used it before, it's all good with me, and I'm already connected to your server.​

    12) Is there anything else you want us to know about you?
    Idk, you can ask stuff if you want to know more, if I get accepted.
