Shnoork and I Are Toddler Twins! 2 Years, Bruh!

Post by 4emersons on 1/11/2015, 1:03 pm

Hey guys, *some* of you *might* know me a little. Smile I just noticed when I saw Shnoork's post about being here 2 years that it is also my two year anniversary on Oasis. It's been a fun ride, and I'm glad to know all the wonderful people here. I guess I'll tell my story because I don't know what else to say here. xD

So I was brought here by LordTomenon, an irl friend since I went to his mom's daycare when I was really young. He introduced my to Minecraft a while before that on the Xbox, and because I didn't have an Xbox, I got it on the computer. Some time after he got it on the computer, he got on here and invited me. 

I joined as a very shy person. I hadn't ever been on a multi-player server before, so I was really confused. There was so many things I didn't know how to do. I expected it to be just like single player, but with other people. Instead, there was this weird-but-cool thing called god mode that made it so you can't die in spawn. 

When I first joined, I was just going to wait for LordTomenon to get on, then follow him around, but as I waited, I grew impatient and started exploring the massive, beautiful spawn. Dixi's castle. 1.4. I thought going up high on the castle would get me a good look at spawn, so I climbed as high as I could, getting to the top of it. Once I was there I took a look around, but fell off the side down a few blocks to where I can't get back up. "I have to jump down and die," is what I thought, not knowing that I could /warp, or do /spawn, or even that I had god mode at spawn. I stayed there, not wanting to jump and die, for a few hours, logging off and on every once in a while to see if LordTomenon got on. I finally mentioned something about it in chat, and I heard that I can warp and have god mode in spawn. I'm like, "What is god mode?" I was so shocked. lol
I ended up getting a house that LordTomenon built for me. Before long, I made a large potato farm underneath it. Didn't want to make to too big though, because it was on the outskirts of a free-build town and I didn't want to take all of the room for expansion. 

I made my member application on January 17 and it was accepted that day by madsci. 

10 days after I became member, I was banned for griefing by Intengent after a few weeks of playing, but madsci unbanned me about a week later. When I look back on it, I'm a tad bit surprised I was unbanned, but very grateful. I made quite the turnaround, I'd say. Permabanned player turned into 50$ donator and Mod. lol

I don't remember who gave me trusted, but it wasn't too long before I got trusted. Once I got trusted, I started being a little more social and active in the community and forums. 

I made my first town with rigo. I wanted the name to be Kingdom of the Sky, but it was changed to Skykingdom for shortness' sake. It was pathetic, but I loved it. It was a tiny, flat slab of grass and stone in the sky. The plots were too small to do much in. I had a huge tower shop, though. It had most of the common items along with a lot of random items for a really cheap price. I had trouble keeping it stocked with how fast people were buying me out.

I donted 20$ in May of 2013 and 30$ more later. I don't remember my first prefix, but I do remember I had [PotatoMan] for a very long time. I got it changed to [PotatoMan+] a while later and [Brotato] after that. Once I got Veteran, I stuck with the rank prefix. 

My best town I've had was Potatoville in 1.7. It had pretty much every active player in the community living in it, along with many other people building houses there. It also was what brought on my friendship with Birdie. Smile I had another town later that map, but that wasn't very popular. I named it Ayon after seeing a town name for a tiny town when traveling with my family. I have a town this map called "Kartoffel", which is German for "potato." Only one person built something there, though. Still open to anyone who wants to build there. 

I got [VC] (Veteran Candidate) in December of 2013 and got Veteran the following January promos. I got [Jrmod] with mah buddy Appleallupinyogrill and deafgrl in March of 2014. I got [Mod] on the September 17 mid-month promos, the month that Birdie and GreatBuilderGuy666 got [Jrmod].

I've made so many friends here, I'm not even going to try to name all of you. You guys are a special group of people. So glad to have the privilege to be a staff member. 

Thanks for reading,
-Ben

You know, I really liked that Brotato prefix. Way better than that boring old [Mod] one you have now, lol. Anyways, happy shared anniversary, Ben! Its been a pleasure getting to know you!
