MCME Year in Review 2018 Memory Submission

  • 854
  • 28
We need your help!

Hello Players of MCME. As you may know, last year I made a Year in Review video for MCME. And at the end of that video, I had a little segment for my favorite memories that I had experienced on the server during that year. This year, we want to open this segment up to you and have you submit your favorite MCME memories of 2018!

To submit a memory, just comment down below to this thread with the memory. It can be a screenshot of chat, a funny discord post, or whatever you want. I kindly ask that these memories be appropriate and don’t go against our Terms of Service. Everyone is welcome to submit a memory

Thanks :)

Badge Update
Mini Game/Guidebook
Mini Games Badge:

The Mini Games Badge is getting an update! You may have noticed that over the past month on MCME, the activity of the Guides has seriously decreased. Certainly new players haven't seen much Cyan on the server lately. This is entirely intentional as I retracted the Guide Monthly Requirements for the month of November as it is an intense time of studying for all of us. I know exam season continues into mid December for several Guides as well.
Anyways, in light of this lack of Guides, we've come to the democratic decision that Commoners should be allowed to apply for the Mini Games Badge so that new players across the spectrum of timezones can have more of a chance at something to do. That said, as stewards of this badge, we have very high standards for those who are even considered to hold this ability. So all...

Assistant/Lead Builder Merger

What? Another Rank Change???

That's right! The Valar held a meeting (Sunday, November 11th) wherein we discussed several topics. One of these topics was the current state of the Assistant and Lead Builder Ranks. As you all know, the ranks caused quite a bit of controversy this year as they are unprecedented in the traditional MCME Rank System. So, during the meeting, in an attempt to simplify the Build Team a bit (As per requested by several staff members) we analyzed the Assistants/Lead Builders and their role/niche on MCME.
We've came to the conclusion that:


1. The two ranks on the server have too few people to constitute an individual...

Wow and the Anniversary Events are over, phew… Great job to all who won, and thank you guides for playing a large role in organizing the events. I think we made a bit of progress in these last two weeks and I am happy in the direction we are currently moving.

Minecraft 1.14 snapshot

This is the first of a new try-out series in which I'll introduce people the newest features that are being introduced in development versions for future Minecraft (snapshots).
Snapshots are released on a weekly basis by Mojang once they feel a major update is ready to be trickled into the community for testing.

1.14 is called the Village and Pillage update and will focus on more interaction with the villages and structures.

In regard to MCME, I will mostly stick to the most interesting features being introduced in the snapshots, while only making mention of the survival components.

I am proud to present to the MCME community:

~Fall Festival~
What?!
That's right folks. Wednesday October 10th marks the 8th year MCME has been alive and running. After all this time we have been able to maintain a beautiful recreation of Middle-Earth through the Minecraft platform. Getting this far would not be possible without a large number of things including community, leadership, and a large amount of passion towards a project. For all of these reasons, I want to thank this community and build team personally, for without them I wouldn't have known many good times or friends in these long years.

New Head Guide and Assistant
What?!?!
That's right! Our beloved @mandolore100 has officially stepped down from the rank of Head Guide on MCME. Concluding with a tour of his favorite spots on the server and a speech commending the efforts of the Guides under his leadership. Well, I speak for all the Guides when I say that nothing we've done in the past six months would be possible without such a great Head to our team. Thank you very much for being such a benevolent and approachable leader and for being ready to give your time to us when we were in need!

But this begs the question...

Who?!?!
Well if you haven't noticed, my name is now red. So yes, I have now been promoted to the rank of Head Guide...

New proposed Rules Committee

~The MCME Rules Committee~


Why have a Rules Committee?

Our Rules and ToS have been in place since the times of whitelist/age limits, with some minor changes since then, and could better reflect our server today. Also over the years it has regularly occurred that people were upset at a ban or other disciplinary actions taken by enforcers. Sometimes the reason for their anger is a disagreement between the way the enforcement team interprets the rules and ToS and the way others in the community do. When this happens there are discussion about whether the enforcers are too strict, or whether the rule that was broken should even exist in the first place.
We feel a way to alleviate these disagreements is through the introduction of a rules committee...

What is the Rules Committee?

Gondor RP merge

Gondor RP merge is now underway. Server RP will behave weird in Gondor until it is done.

Block replacements are now underway in all of Gondor. This process will take a few hours. DON'T BUILD IN GONDOR!!! I'll announce here when the merge is done.


Block replacements by plugin are now done. Gondor RP version 2.4 is now the server RP for all regions of Gondor (except Paths of the Dead). Jobs for manual block replacements and derp checking are now underway. Better don't build new stuff in Gondor until these jobs are mostly done (we might have to undo).
