    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 start of 2011, my brother saw the game and played the trial / alpha in a browser and was like oh that's interesting. He introduced me to it and we started playing on servers together. Making crazy rail way systems with the old booster rail mechanics.

    2) Tell us about your favorite block or item, the one you can't live without, and why?
    Block = Quartz, clean looking block very nice to build with and has stairs and slabs to match.

    Item = My sword, smacking things with knockback II and sending them off edges of things and getting more loot from looting III is nice [​IMG]

    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 building with other people, I've built a few projects on my own but I've helped my brothers out with stuff they are working on a lot. One time I helped Arkayhl clear a giant area in extreme hills and we made a massive pipe (90 block diameter and 200 blocks long roughly) for no reason other than it would be cool looking. It was a lot of effort and this was way before haste II, but the end result did look cool. I've played with my fiancé too while introducing her to the game and we made a nice base with a few small farms and things together.

    I like playing UHC's with my brothers and friends, we used to play them a lot because we watched the mindcrackers start it all back in the day and really enjoyed the idea. We'd do co-op ones to kill the dragon and PvP ones to kill each other / out survive one another.

    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 did on my own was a large castle plan I had for an island, I started building a tower out on an island with a walkway over a bit of the ocean joining the main castle front.The pipe I mentioned earlier was pretty cool, sadly we didn't fill it out with much stuff because of world resets and servers going offline but It was starting to take shape with large lava pillars with stair patterns encasing them and walkways that carried you up and around the insides. Big glass windows in the roof to let light in and sheep everywhere at the bottom that ate all the grass.

    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 know how to play the drums and the guitar and like chilling out playing some of the music I like. I go to the movies with my fiancé and watching the occasional series on netflix together. I recently started collecting and playing a trading card/dice game (Star Wars: Destiny), which is really fun. I play lots of other video games and have a substantial collection on Steam, me and Arkayhl have been playing Divinity Original Sin 2 a lot recently (together and single player).

    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?
    I am currently studying my final year of Mechanical Engineering Bachelors and so I am living at home and commuting to that.

    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 mainly played where my brother did, and joined a few whitelisted servers he joined after we gave up / couldn't afford to run our own.

    7b) If no, what has kept you from trying out other servers before?
    N/A

    8) Why would you like to be on our server? What do you think we have to offer that fits your playstyle?
    I get the urge to play minecraft when I see my brother play it, and I would like to be able to join his world and builds. Your server has a mature player base and an active one which is welcoming from what he said. You don't reset your world, which sounds cool and activity isn't a requirement so it's nice knowing that my stuff is going to be there if life suddenly gets too busy to play or other things distract me. Mainly I'm here to keep nagifero in line, so you'll need to whitelist me just for that.

    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, and have fun on their own or with others if they want to.

    10) How did you find us and what did you see that made you want to apply?
    Arkayhl plays here, and he's my brother.

    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 and can connect to your one, I also have Steam.

    12) Is there anything else you want us to know about you?
    Idk, you can ask me questions if you want to know more.
