BOOOO! Did i scare you?
Spooky Season is almost here!

Editor's Note by Mapthor
Another anniversary, here and gone just like that. Even though the 10th has passed, I think we can all agree that it was one hell of a night. The whole community came together to celebrate one decade of MCME. We got to see the premier of the 10th Anniversary Video, made fun of Arch for being the most AFK player of the year, and even got to kill each other in survival. Many old members came back to celebrate and we even got a shoutout on Instagram from our friends over at Ardacraft (Thanks guys, keep up the great work!). MCME is a very special place right now. It has the power to bring people together in these hard times and never...

10 Year Anniversary Events
Hello MCME'ers new and old, I am proud to present to you the MCME 10 Year Anniversary Events! That's right, we have been building for 10 years now after founding the project in Minecraft Alpha 1.1. There are only a few people who can say that they have been here from the very beginning, but if you were we would like to see you at these events so we can celebrate the past and success of this project...

MCME Turns Ten!
But in like six days!

Editor's Note by Mapthor
Howdy everyone, welcome back to the Times. We are so close to the 10th Anniversary of Minecraft Middle-Earth. I’ve been on here for almost four years and it’s crazy to see how the server has changed since 2017. I’ve seen so many new builds, unique players, and one hell of a community change. If you’re an old player or just a newbie, be sure to cherish this chapter in your life. MCME isn’t just another server, it’ll become a part of your life, just like it’s done for so many players on this server. Go out and have fun. Meet some friends, learn how to build, and hop in some tours because you’ll regret it if you don’t.

Happy Sailing,

Hello again fellow reader, welcome back to another edition of the MCME Times! I’ll be honest with ya, not much has really happened these past two weeks. With the Anniversary Events on the horizon, The Events Team is hard at working getting ready for October. In the meantime, be sure to stay active and stay happy on the server.

Summer Ends, Classes Begin!
Ya hate it see it happen

Editor's Note by Mapthor
Hey all, Mapthor here! As Summer slowly starts to come to a close, the Summer Events must do the same. All in all, these Events went extremely well and I’m very happy everyone (hopefully) enjoyed them. But do not fear, the Anniversary Events are currently in planning stages, so make sure to be on the lookout for those in October. Other than that, I don’t really have much to report on, so I’ll leave you all with some advice from good old Odin. When you have some free time in the next few days, dedicate it to yourself and spend some time alone. Whether that time be you playing games for three hours or just going on a bike...

The Summer Events are in Full Swing!

Editor's Note by Mapthor
Hello again, avid reader, and welcome back to The MCME Times Editor’s Note by Mapthor! As I assume you all know, the Summer Events have been in full swing this past week and a half. So far, these events have been great. We’ve had great Soc-Football matches with Archimedes, a movie night with Arothir, and one hell of a karaoke session with Xmine. So far, so good if you ask me. But, we’re not done yet! Next Friday (hopefully), Awaywind and I will be hosting our Mini-Middle-Earth Race. Also, be on the lookout for D3’s PvP Event on the 11th and Archimedes’s Moria Race on the 16th. Thank you all for participating in these...

Editor's Note by Mapthor
Hey all, Map here! I just got back from a two week vacation in the lands of Wyoming so I’ve been distanced from the community for a bit. But nonetheless, it is my job to bring you the biweekly Editor’s Note so here I am! The Summer Events are finally upon us with the opening ceremony, hosted by our lovely therapist Soarz, being scheduled for the 31st of this month. Be sure not to miss his lovely speech or whatever he has planned. Once that is over, the Summer Events will last until the end of August so be sure to take part whenever you can. But if you can’t make all of them, that’s ok. Just make sure to attend...

"Elen síla lúmenn' omentielvo!" or if you're not a Quenya expert, "hello!" ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, cool cat and kittens, paper pushers and senior designers, sandcastles and beaches and everything in between! The time has come for me to welcome you all to the 7 Stars Summer Events. Before we get in, here's a piece about this year's Summer Events

Not long ago
When the spring moon lay low
When the world seemed bleak
When some joy we did seek

Glad tidings came like the summer breeze
To aim to put our worries at ease
7 events, given word of fame
mighty in all, presence and name

Race, challenge, PVP
Testing all skills whatever it may...

Editor's Note by Mapthor
Hey all! Welcome back to another edition of Mapthor’s Editor's Note. These past two weeks have been hectic with a lot of stuff happening. We had a lot of great promotions, a handful of jobs, and even a teaser for the upcoming Summer Events! But, in the end, the good can’t exist without the bad. We saw the resignations of both LeBlanc and Dave, who both stepped down from their Staff positions. Thank you both for your hard work on the server, we’re all gonna miss you. To quote Harvey Dent: “The night is darkest just before the dawn.” While we may be going through tough times both on the...

Go outside and play safely… or just stay inside and play on MCME I don’t care

Editor's Note by Mapthor
Hey all, Map here! I just watched Inception for the first time and now my head hurts thinking about it. Go watch Inception by the way, it’s a great movie. Plus, it’s got Leonardo Dicaprio as the main character and everyone loves Leo… right? Remember when he won his first Oscar for Best Actor in The Revenant? That was a happy moment. Ah, the good old days. Anyways, I gotta act professional here. This is the MCME Times we’re talking about here, the newspaper of the server! These past two weeks have been a joyride for the community. We had a few promotions and resignations, lots...

Guide Applications

  • 820
  • 2
Hello everyone!

I greet you with news regarding Guide applications!

This has been discussed, changed and finalised to the point where I can bring it to the community now.

Basically, it was noted by @Soars that Guide Applications have very little to go at or work for, in essence, you get a trial tour, you pass or you fail, that's it. There's nothing to work at, nothing to gain etc. So we've decided to try and change that. Instead, we've created a system that works similarly to the current way Artist applications are carried out, where you develop your application over time.

You may know that a few of our recent Guide applicants, including @Archimdes, @TeamPalladian and @D3rr3x all went through a small trial "period", where they had the badges and showed off what they could do. Well, this is effectively what this new system would be. I'll break it down for you in a chain of events, so you get a better...

Dear Screenshotters!

I am happy to announce a new screenshot contest!
This one is highly inspired by the Wide Screenshot contest that Ruben started the 15th of May.

The theme for this screenshot contest is:

Meaning that we will only make pictures from the top angle!
You can cut them anyway you want, you can even edit it so the light is a bit different.
Here are some examples I made of some Top-shot pictures. But of course you guys can do so much better than me!




Good luck with making the screenies! I hope to see a lot of cool pictures.
The deadline will be 23:59 at Wednesday the 24th of June YOUR TIME!
This way I will have the winners ready for the next times edition (28th of June)! So keep an eye on the times because the winners will be...

Howdy gamers, how y’all doing? Another week, another Times edition where I gotta type some stuff up for you wonderful people. Lots of work is getting done both on and off the server. Just in these last two weeks, we had a few promotions in the community, lots of jobs have got the commoners involved in the community, and the Guides kinda took over the News channel with minigame and audiobook announcements. Speaking of the Guides, they went on a “vacation” to Disneyworld for some team bonding which was a wonderful experience. Granted that happens tomorrow on the 14th, by the time you read this it’ll already have happened so...

Editor's Note by Mapthor
Alright, this is my third week doing the editor’s note so I’m gonna change it up a bit. This time, I’m going to tell you a story. “There once was a tiger-striped cat. This cat died a million deaths, revived & lived a million lives, and he was owned by various people who he really didn't care for. The cat wasn't afraid to die. Then one day the cat became a stray cat which meant he was free. He met a white female cat & the two of them spent their days together happily. Well, years passed & the white cat grew weak & died of old age. The tiger-striped cat cried a million times, & then he died too. Except this time, he didn't come back to...

Streamers and Chicken!
We are back and viral once again!

Editor's Note by Mapthor
Hey there lads and lasses, Mapthor here again for round two of the Editor’s Note! Two more weeks of Quarantine have passed since the last edition of the Times which means MCME got a lot of special attention. Our donations have been going through the roof recently, a whole bunch of promotions from Artist all the way up to Manager, and lots of new players due to some certain Twitch Streamers. The Server is back in full motion and it doesn’t look like it’ll stop anytime soon. Keep up all the great work everyone! It will all pay off in the end, trust me :)

Do you want to be immortalized on MCME's Instagram account? Look no further: this is your ticket to fame.

What we want, is screenshots with particular dimensions; we want extremely widescreen screenshots, for a particular reason. Instagram allows you to upload 'swipeable' posts. The idea is that you take a widescreenshot, we cut it up in multiple swipes and post it.

Requirements & tips:
  1. The screenshot has to look good after cropping the lower and upper strip, as the following screenshot does:
  2. The resolution width must be at least 2500 pixels wide. See Video settings > Other > Screenshot size.
  3. I recommend that every swipe is worth seeing: don't have an object worth seeing in only one slide. (See the above GIF which has an interesting object at every swipe.)
  4. I recommend that you check out my...
