Wow, it's been quite a long time. I checked my profile and it's been seven years since I joined this server. When I joined I was in middle school and now I've nearly finished college. Wanted to see if anyone was still around, wanted to connect? Would love to chill and remember the old days as well as catch up on what everyone was up to!
Hey guys! Theo here. Wow, it's been a while since I first started on Opticraft, about 4 years to be more precise. I thought it would be cool to see how we all changed throughout our time on the server and maybe how it helped shape who were are, if at all. I imagine we could do it like this
Age : 13
Interests : Minecraft Hunger Games, Daft Punk, League of Legends, being angsty
Main activities on server : Farming, building silly spleef arenas
Memories : Having a memorial made for me when I left, haha!
Age : 17
Interests : Hearthstone, CSGO, Daft Punk, Electronic Music in general, Overwatch, Speech and Debate
Other : I really enjoy talking to my friends and talking for hours. We've thrown around the idea of a podcast, so we'll see where that goes
Overall, I think Opticraft helped me recognize how to stop being really obnoxious. I remember countless times being reprimanded for being, well, obnoxious. I think my social skills really improved from the daily interactions on the server, and helped me to be the outspoken and respectable person I like to think I am today. Thank you, Opticraft community. I owe a part of who I am today to you guys. Cheers!
Yo, Theo here. It's been a long time since my ban, and considering it was my first legitimate offence, I'm asking for a repeal. I know, I was extremely adamant about being banned, and it was stupid. I'm not here to give excuses, but I feel as if the circumstances do provide a hint of evidence as to why I acted the way I did. I was going through a pretty shit time, and one of the ways I dealt with it was by abusing the server. I realized then and still now that it was wrong, the only difference being I can probably control myself now. So, yeah, thanks for reading, and I leave myself to the mercy of the proverbial court. Peace.
So, I was banned a while back, and I felt like I needed to settle some things. First off, I want to apologize to all the players I insulted and made fun of. The few I remember are Italian, MW3, and that's about it. It was very wrong of me to act in such a way. At the time, I had two deaths in the family, of whom I was very close to. While it was an influence, it is not an excuse. I was banned justly, because of my inability to drop a subject. I even lost a very close friend because of this, and I still miss that person. All in all, I wanted to apologize and ask for forgiveness. I'm sorry.

Why you should become a moderator: I don't think anyone should, or deserves to be mod, but it's really a privilege. I would think I make a good candidate for a few reasons. I could be quick to respond to helpops, and be attentive until not needed. Also, I could help new members with water, commands, etc. I do have my flaws, and those could make it a bit harder, but hopefully I could work past that and be a good moderator. Thank you for reading and considering.
So, first off, please lock. This doesn't need to be an argument topic.
So, let's get started. A couple events that have happened recently have opened my eyes. I mean, I really understand why I need a break. I have been starting lots of fights, and have participated in a fair share of other peoples fights. It's really unnecessary what people say to me sometimes, and my reactions are a little too much. Overreacting is the word. Well, what I'm trying to say is this : I will be severely inactive over the summer. I'll look at the forums every now and again, but will not play on the server near as much as I used too. I think it is best for me and the server that this action is taken.
Second, I would like to address a problem. Some people have been recently, "joking". I say this because sometimes the things they say are hurtful. I mean, it can really offend someone. I would expect more from the patrons of this server. This server is different, and for good reason. It is very organized, orderly, and the overall experience is great. However, the members of the server, trusted and staff included, can go a little far. I think they don't realize what they do either. Certain things can trigger peoples nerves and make them go insane with anger. I, too, have experienced this. However, I overreacted, but still felt offended.
Many will not agree with what I have too say. Others will see my point. Either way, I want to get a point across. And it is that I hope by the time I come back I can see a change. A real change.
Before I say anything, please lock this topic as I do not want it to be a discussion.
First off, I'm sorry. I'm sorry for causing drama, participating in said drama, and making it worse. I realize I have affected many with my ignorance, stupidity, and sometimes downright condescending attitude. I have made many a friend wish they did not know me, and for this I apologize. I hope you can find it in your hearts to forgive me. Those I have affected know who they are, so if this applies to you, again, I am truthfully sorry.

Were you recommended by anyone?: No.
Why you should become a moderator?: I believe playing on this server is a privilege, not a right. Some people, usually newer guests or members, just don't understand this extremely important belief in our community. These people, although they may not understand what they are doing, could be griefing, harassing other players, or anything else. I would like to be moderator not only to help others who know the rules, but to guide those who do not. This way, more of us can have an enjoyable experience on this server. In conclusion, the reason I would like to be moderator is to help newer guests and to of course, fix grief.
Thank you for considering this application.
Well, for some reason, I can not run MC and mumble at the same time. When i try, minecraft immediately stops responding and says that Java(TM) SE Binary is not responding working or something like that. What the heck is going on? Help!
EDIT: MC has stopped working entirely even when im not running mumble.
Well, I have not been on in a while, and here's why. I have had a lot of school work, and finals for some reason have, instead of being papers, become projects that start in Q1 and end in Q4. Second, I'm having a lot of family issues. So, sorry for the absence, I know you miss me SO much. (jk) but yeah.
