    (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?
    So, my Minecraft journey began with the old-school classic creative multiplayer back around 2009 but my first taste of the Minecraft as we know it now was just after the Halloween update in Alpha. What really hooked me in was discovering X's Adventures in Minecraft which provided some of my best and earliest memories of the game - exploring the vast network of caves and the infinite landscapes the world had to offer.
    Lots of things bring me back each night. Sometimes its the urge to build and express my creativity, other times its the community and the people that I become close friends with.

    (2) Tell us about your favorite block or item, the one you can't live without, and why?
    I would have to pick a nice pair of diamond boots with Feather Falling IV. I like building up high and these are a life saver.

    (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?
    My style involves planning overly ambitious builds in my head and wishing I could create the perfect monuments. Except what usually happens is I start a few too many projects and never finish them. My flaw here is being a brutally stubborn perfectionist which hinders the speed at which I can finish projects. I try to not reinvent the wheel when it comes to farming, If there's already a public farm I'll use that instead of building my own, unless it's something I use a lot of (beeeef).
    When I start a map I usually look for a quick stack of food then go straight into mining and get diamond/iron armour as quickly as possible, then find a place to settle and begin farming the wildlife.

    (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.
    Pictures are worth a thousand words - Just a few things I've built on survival servers:

    A rather large maze that only one person ever completed.

    Underground apartments influenced heavily by the Earthscraper concept. (right)

    This thing - I lived in the netherbrick sphere.

    As for group builds:
    A series of connected islands where I invited players to design and create there own themed structure.


    (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?
    My free time usually involves watching netflix - recent favourites include all the Defenders related series, The Expanse, Vikings, Arrested Development, and Ozark.
    I also am usually browsing reddit and youtube - I have a strange liking towards calm artisan videos. I like running and exercising too, and eating of course.
    Finally, I do programming as a hobby so I sometimes work on projects in Unity.

    (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'll keep this one short sorry. I live at home still with my parents and work full time during the day.

    (7) Have you played on other MC servers before?
    Yes, I've hopped around 4 or 5 major servers since I started playing Minecraft.

    (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?
    The longest I was with a server was 2.5 years. I would play on it daily because the people there were super friendly - it felt like a second home. I disliked the politics that eventually pushed people away and split the server up. People just faded and stopped playing and it became a ghost town and shutdown.

    (8) Why would you like to be on our server? What do you think we have to offer that fits your playstyle?
    The biggest thing that appeals to me is the length of time you've had the same map. I build slowly have had servers reset before I could finish projects which is a huge nuisance. I come here hoping that this wont be a problem.
    Also, I want to be on this server to play alongside my friends and potentially make some new ones!

    (9) What does 'community' mean to you? What do you think you can contribute to our community?
    To me, community is collaboration, trading, friendships, and a chance to learn from others.
    Generally I like to banter and talk openly about anything and everything, given that people are willing to listen. I've also been told I'm a great listener, you can rant to me and I wont judge. Gamewise - I try to help others if they need it, be it fending off pigmen or lending a couple stacks of building materials. I also try to build in towns that people have made plots available to build on, as to expand and keep the town/city/whatever alive.

    (10) How did you find us and what did you see that made you want to apply?
    Ark and Nagi sent me here. I saw many pretty pictures on the subreddit and it just looks so wonderfully cozy 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?
    Yes, I have discord and have no problem joining!

    (12) Is there anything else you want us to know about you?
    I am totally not picking my nose right now =)
