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...

It's nearly Mid-Summer's Night!
Half way through 2020!

Editor's Note by Mapthor
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...

Summer's Here!
Lets make the most of it!

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 :)

Happy Sailing

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...

May Mayham!
MCME is Booming!

Editor's Note by Mapthor
Hey guys, Map here! Soarz let me write the editors note for some reason so here we are. First off, it’s finally May! A new month means new progress for MCME and we got some cool things coming your way. The server got updated to 15.2, the PVP server got revived, and the Gondor RP trilogy is finally complete. Ooits began hosting the “official” MCME Workout Session which is open to the public (just ask him) and Q made the website look very very shiny. All in all, the community is rallying right now with new things due to this quarantine and I couldn’t be happier. The last time I saw the community this active was back in 2017, so seeing this puts a...

Stay inside!

Minecraft is more fun anyways!

Editor's Note by Soarz

With all that is currently going on, it may affect many people. But for those of us who are involved with MCME it has given us all the free time we could ask for. Over the past few weeks we have been moving more then ever nad pursuing our goal even more. Even so i would still like to urge everyone to stay inside (and play Minecraft). We have a special edition for the Occasion so don't let me keep you too long as we move straight into this Fortnights edition of the MCME Times!

Winter is almost gone and warmth is on its way!

Editor's Note by Soarz

A lot has changed in the past few weeks, and i cant say its for the better. But that is why your neighborhood Times team is here, we belong to brighten your day and show you all the wonderful things we can do as a community. Even though changes are happening in the world we can still count on MCME to be here, for when we are bored and want to build and for the community to push us to be our best. This weeks edition is packed with tons of info that you don't want to miss. So once again i must ask that you grab some tea and a good snack as we push right on into this weeks edition of the MCME Times...

Shamrock Sunday!

Make a Wish!

Editor's Note by Soarz

Dang, has i really been three months already, time flies when your on the best Minecraft server in existence. Every week is a new adventure, or a challenge to take on and we push for the best. In MCME there is always something to do, it doesn't matter if that is building great big things or helping new players around the map, there is always something that you can do. In this weeks edition i urge you to look at all the amazing things people have done and put there love into and try and find something that you would enjoy doing, because if you aren't having fun then it feels more like a job then a passionate hobby. Not to put anymore time away...

Love is in the air!

MCME is the only true love!

Editor's Note by Soarz

It may be passed valentines day but that doesn't mean we can just love something for one day. MCME has a special place in all of our hearts especially those who have been here for a while. We can see all those who have brought us this far, and the things that we have achieved and know that this was not just a solo effort, but of a community and one that has one drive and passion, and that is the singular love for Middle Earth. This edition will be a bit smaller as we transition our projects and move forward with the new 1.14 patch. So not to keep you waiting any longer, lets dive right on into this weeks edition of the MCME...

Time Flies!

One month down, a few to go!

Editor's Note by Soarz

Welcome back Dwarves, Elves, and Humans alike. We hope you enjoy your stay this week as week we talk about the tales of MCME, from projects to the news that has spread across the land. With January out of the way we only have a few months to work with so lets make then count! We have a lot to talk about and even more to show you, so without a further due please sit back at a 70 degree angle and get a good glass of water as we dive straight into this weeks edition of the MCME TIMES!

Moving Forward!
January is almost over!

Editor's Note by Soarz
January has rushed by, but time does fly when your chilling waiting on the good ole patch. This week is going to be a bit smaller on the project side as not much did happen as we watched from the sidelines as Eriol, and the team dealt with all the conversions and derps. We have added a bit more news for you to enjoy and look over to compensate for the lack of projects. Now relax as the edition is about to start, grab a seat/chair, and a snack as we show you the wonders of the MCME Times.

What used to be the 'front page' for MCME has now been relocated to the mcmiddleearth.com/community/ subdomain, as well as the forums.
This change was necessary to allow for new front page functionality.

New Year New mcME!
Happy 2020 Everyone!

Editor's Note by Soarz
Happy new year MCME, last year was a bit wild, but fun. Time just seems to fly so fast when your having fun with friends and building amazing projects. With this new year we have the 1.14 update that is very close to being done, meaning more projects to report on. No more "Not much here this week" from us, as tons of work will be started shortly. I hope everyone is ready for another year with the community, because there is more fun to be had. So if your popcorn is ready with all the butter you can muster, lets get into this weeks edition.

Chilly Season has set in!
The season of lights, fires, and Middle-earth builds!

Editor's Note by Soarz

We are officially halfway through December, and boy has it flown by! It felt like two weeks ago we just did this, oh wait we did. That's OK though because we have all new information for you and more progress on our usual builds. Not even the cold can slow us down from having fun on MCME as we have our winter events coming up, and this time around we will not be visiting Bree but SNOWY BREE!! Bet you didn't see that coming. Anyways, don't let me keep you! Please enjoy this weeks edition and watch out for the mistletoe out there.
