IGN: Crow_MC this name is simple but relates to my last name.
Age: i am 16.
Where are you from? What Time Zone?: EST, I am from Connecticut and lived there until i was about 9 years old. I moved down to South Carolina for personal reasons as well as the warmth. My family and I like it better down here because the people down here are a lot more nice. I am not your average gamer though. i do play football and baseball as well as school and video games. Gaming is my passion, I play minecraft with all my free time.
How long have you been playing Minecraft?: For about 3 - 4 years now I started on PS3 before the redstone update and thought redstone was so cool and interesting that i bought a PC mainly for the game. I have never got tired of minecraft. There is so much to do in the game i don`t feel a reason to get tired of it.
What would you say are your best skills in Minecraft?: My three best skills in Minecraft are redstone, Minecraft mechanics, and building (on occasion i can do it well when i want to do it).
What part of minecraft interests you the most?: The part that interest me the most in Minecraft is the redstone and mechanics. I believe this is because i have a dream of being a engineer in the future. I am trying to be a mechanical or computer engineer.
Have you ever played on a server similar to this?: I have been in multiple SMPs witch all got shut down. my friend Andrew owned them and ended them if people weren't play for a little bit (So inactivity haha). the first one i was in was sphere SMP, then Angelic SMP, Void SMP, Flare SMP, and Eclipse smp. the best of these was Angelic SMP ( ). That SMP was owned by ArcaneMC witch is another good friend. The best SMP I was in progress wise was Eclipse smp. I built a iron titan in 2 days but a few days after that the SMP shut down. This is why I really want a good active SMP that will stay up! Yalls server seems perfect!
Please show some examples of your builds(Photos or Videos): This build was recent like 2 weeks ago i spent a day to figure everything out and was very pleased! The video is a little laggy, but my videos are not usually like that this was odd: . Another video is a small cheep and easy nano farm: . Another video is my sugar cane farm (Sorry this was when i first started YouTube: () I have updated that farm to be more space and resource efficient: ( ). These are just the start of all my farms! I make new farms weekly!
How often do you plan on playing on the server?: Every day if possible but only for a few hours during the week due too school and sports.
Do you have a mic?: Yes i got a blue snowball about 6 months ago
Do you plan on recording while playing on the server?: Yes, this is one of the main things I thought of when applying. I have been doing YouTube for eight months now and don`t plan on stopping any time soon!
How do you plan on helping the server reach its goals?: I love SMPs and everything to come with them! I will work hard to make some of the farms I make on my channel and any new ones I make! i love talking to people and co-oping, so I will make some time to talk to the members to make us go farther in multiple ways. One way would be sharing are redstone and minecraft knowledge together to learn/teach new stuff all the time! Another will be keeping the SMP fun! I will either be talking to some or all the members on (teamspeak, skype, or discord) witch ever yall have and motivate them to hop on the server and play! Also if people get motivated by mass amounts of free resources my farms will please them and make life easier for all the member to, and to keep them working on more stuff!
Ray - I was very busy these past few days. This was kinda a odd time this took me 2 days when it should have took 2/3 hours. (hahaha) But i shouldn't be that busy again for like a very long time.
What will you do on the server?: I enjoy working on large automatic farms. I watch a ton of hermitcraft/scicraft/zipKrowd, and emulate their love of going BIG on renewable/farmable resources.
Why do you want to join?: I have played on a semi-vanilla pvp/raid/grief server for over a year and half, and the lack of community is getting old. I want a place where I can contribute to massive projects and undertakings. I’m often not the one to create fresh ideas, but that is ok. I would rather grind away on someone’s build, light up every cave possible, help on a perimeter…that sort of work. I'm tired of the risk of my farms being ruined by some kid, and would rather make something big that many people can use and enjoy.
Why should we choose you, what makes you unique?: My maturity and life experience. I am a husband, a father and a successful automotive electrical technician. What I lack in idle time for playing games, I make up for in love of the game. I regularly keep myself up to date with changes in this ever-evolving game. At work I listen to other mature youtubers (xisuma and the hermit team comes to mind, ilmango/gnembon and the scicraft server, and Rays for his amazing ideas to farms) to glean unique game mechanics and idea’s, and adapt my building style to match. I grew up on Lego, and I view MC as unlimited, adaptable lego. Doing the grindy bits, when I know it is for the greater good, is my way to ‘de-stress’ at the end of the day.
How much will you be playing?: Typically 1-2 hrs per day, in USA Eastern time zone ~10-11PM. I often can join throughout the day at my job to do little grindy jobs or afk at farms.
What part of minecraft interests you the most? Big, technical, exploitive. My jaw drops at some designs and aspirations some kids have. I am envious of those who don’t have as much life responsibilities as I do when it comes to having time for big building, but I LOVE the unique details coded in the game that we can exploit for amazing farms.
Do you have a mic? Yes, but no. A simple Logitech microphone, however my office is currently next to my infant’s room, so I play in silence since she is sleeping when I get online at night. I can be available for the rare call though to discuss server plans/goals/projects.
Plan on recording while playing? Nope. As you can tell by the picture I have painted, I’m applying to be the back-end guy, the digger, the excavator, and runner.
Have you played on a server similar to this? Honestly, not really. The bulk of my online MC time was spent on a big raid/griefing server. A lot of the pictures linked came from there. But I wanted to build bigger, above ground, and join a community of like-minded tech guys, not just kids pvping and spamming racism in chat. I joined Enigma about a month ago, and completed a great guardian farm. The server can’t seem to attract more members thou, and I am about the only one who is on anymore. On the big PVP server, I was made a chat-mod and then trusted as Admin as well as website admin because of my maturity in dealing with people. So I have done some administrative server/MC work as well.
Anything we should know?: I use Minecraft as an end-of-day destresser. I cant play nearly as much as I would like because of family and life obligations. But I am looking for a big advanced technical style community server that I can join and assist.
Where are you from? What Time Zone?: United States, Central time
How long have you been playing Minecraft?: At least 5, if not 6 years.
What would you say are your best skills in Minecraft?: I would say that automation is my favorite part of the game. I've automated/semi-automated just about everything in the game I believe, some are the more simpler ones but some are more complex (which are more enjoyable for me). I don't consider myself to be extremely good/creative with redstone but I definitely know enough to get by. When I make farms with specific timers I just think of my own way to make it work even though there are more compact and simpler designs out there (most of the time I ask for help with that part if I know there is a much simpler way). I will admit that I not so great at making builds look good, but nevertheless I can make a build function properly.
What part of minecraft interests you the most?: Definitely the technical side. I can't count how many times I've gotten banned from 'big-name' servers for breaking their economy within a matter of weeks. I love finding loop holes in the game and applying them to certain situations to come out with one huge WIN. Aside from that, I'd say large scale projects that require tons of grinding are up there with one of my favorite things to do. I'll stay up all night if I'm really focused on a project that I'm working on. Although nothing can beat vanilla minecraft, I really enjoy skyblock because its basically technical minecraft with perimeters already made for you
Have you ever played on a server similar to this?: Yes, a few but only one currently. My brother (JonesOfJustice) told me about a server and I applied because we usually do a lot of builds together. We knew that the server had around 2-3 resets and we joined at the beginning stage of the server, so there was a lot to do. I'd say that my brother and I have done 80-90% of the work on the server so far and we have been the last ones to join. Its demotivating to keep playing on it when there are many people who have been accepted to the server but only 3-4 are active.
Please show some examples of your builds(Photos or Videos): Sadly I do not have pictures from most of my builds because my hard-drive has gotten fried about 3 times now, so I lost everything. Here are a few pictures from the server I currently play on though: http://imgur.com/a/9hniZ (Spawn with quarries and mob farm/iron titan) http://imgur.com/a/QV41z (More efficient mob farm that I made(not my design)) http://imgur.com/a/L3u76 (Mob farm storage room and 100% automatic tree farm with TNT duplicator off to the side) http://imgur.com/a/YrgkW (Inside the mob farm storage room with item elevator)
I apologize for the lack of content here, as stated before, I have lost all my other worlds/screenshots due to hard drive malfunctions.
How often do you plan on playing on the server?: I plan on playing as long as there are projects to work on, so quite a bit. I will probably play a lot towards the end of the week/on the weekends (~7 hours/day) but not a whole lot during Sunday-Wednesday due to school, maybe a few hours here and there during those days.
Do you have a mic?: Yes, I have a decent headset that I've had for a couple years now. I use Skype, teamspeak, and discord.
Do you plan on recording while playing on the server?: Myself? No, but I will probably help my brother create new videos for his channel that are from this server.
How do you plan on helping the server reach its goals?: I plan to help as much as possible, whether it be doing all the grinding work (crafting masses of items for storage, help quarry something, trading with villagers to get the emeralds needed for other projects) or just designing new farms that are more compact/yield more resources.
Age: 13, now don't assume I'm like all the others who swear and talk bad look at my channel to see youtube.com/R2bEEaton[/b]
Where are you from? What Time Zone?: United States, EST[/b]
How long have you been playing Minecraft?: Since Release 1.6.2, over 3 years[/b]
What would you say are your best skills in Minecraft?: Making functional things that are aesthetically pleasing. For example (simplified) a colorful beacon is functional and looks cool. (VERY SIMPLIFIED)[/b]
What part of minecraft interests you the most?: The part that interests me the most is the fact that its not like all the other games that you kill people, get points, and upgrade your guns. For three years I have been playing this game and never once found myself tired of building the same thing over and over because you don't![/b]
Have you ever played on a server similar to this?: I have not. Every time I try to play with my friends they always end up cheating materials in with /give so I would really like to be a part of an environment where there are nerds like me who respect the aspect of survival while also building awesome redstone contraptions that I can help with![/b]
Please show some examples of your builds(Photos or Videos): Well since I have a YouTube channel, all my work is there (youtube.com/R2bEEaton) but here are some highlights... [/b]
Infinite Shulker Storage: [/b]
[b]Tour of a small server I made (mostly aesthetics): [/b]
[b]Vanilla Skywars (I was sick): [/b]
How often do you plan on playing on the server?: As often as I can, I usually can get more than two hours a day[/b]
Do you have a mic?: Yes but am uncomfortable with talking verbally to people I don't know personally so I will just use Skype for messaging.[/b]
Do you plan on recording while playing on the server?: As often as I can! To be part of a server like this, is something I've wanted for a long time so yeah I'll record whenever I can![/b]
How do you plan on helping the server reach its goals?: Well, as I said before, I'd like to use both my redstone skills in correlation with my aesthetic standard to make something functional and beautiful for (and with) the community![/b]
Thanks so much for reviewing my application and I wish to hear back from you soon! Minecraft will never die!![/b]
Where are you from? What Time Zone?: Texas, United States, Mountain Standard Time[/b]
How long have you been playing Minecraft?:since beta 1.1[/b]
What would you say are your best skills in Minecraft?: redstone and building, im not someone who builds compact redstone, but someone who constructs a building and then adapts the redstone to fit inside so its aesthetically pleasing, but i can make ugly redstone too [/b]
What part of minecraft interests you the most?: automation, especially mob farming, aesthetically pleasing symmetrical floor patterns (i just like em XD)[/b]
Have you ever played on a server similar to this?: i have played on other vanilla servers but not one that is tech oriented, usually i do most of the automation in the servers i have played in[/b]
Please show some examples of your builds(Photos or Videos):[/b]
a little creation i came up with on the first day of 1.11 snapshots:[/b]
Some of my creations on my SSP, previous SMP and some creative work[/b] http://pho.to/ANWfN[/b]
How often do you plan on playing on the server?: probably a few hours a day[/b]
Do you have a mic?: yes[/b]
Do you plan on recording while playing on the server?: yes, i will be doing a series on my channel for the fun of it [/b]
How do you plan on helping the server reach its goals?: setting up the groundwork for the bigger farms is important, so starter iron farms or even a bigger iron farm might be in the plans, enderman farms are something i can build real quick as well and experience is always a nice thing to have available. i also have experience with villager trading so that is something that i might aim to do as well. i have been toying with some gold farm designs that are simpler than snocrash's so might be something that i would look into.[/b]

Your application is missing some of the requirements that we need in order to make a decision. Your answers are very vague when it comes to important things like redstone and your experience with vanilla survival minecraft. Also please take the time to look at others applications that have been accepted in order to get a feel for what we are looking for.
