Spooky Seasons Over!
Now the cold can set in!
Editor's Note by Soarz
It has been a wild month to say the least! Starting with the Anniversary and progressing through events everyone had a good time. All of them were put together by our guide team with help from selective builders and of course our Valar. This week your favorite times team brings you another wonderful edition showing off all our building efforts from what we saw last week. We also see the introduction of our new Bungee Network, this was put in place just in case of another big out break of popularity in our beloved server. So without a further or do please sit back, grab your hot chocolate, slap in your favorite Lord of the Rings movie...

Happy Birthday MCME!
Its been a long journey!

Editor's Note by Soarz
Welcome back fellow readers, we have a special edition this week! We celebrate nine years since the start of MCME! Its' been a long path and we have lost many great people, but in return we've gained many talented people. We couldn't have made it this far without their determination to building what they loved and now that we have the torch they passed down, it's our task to continue what they started. With that in mind we started our events for the Anniversary, and like every year they are going great! Sit back and enjoy another great edition, and don't forget to check out the new theme build! ;)

The MCME screenshot event!

Hey all!

I am happy to announce the official mcme screenshot event!

After a walk through the forest you set your camp up for the night. You try to sleep but hear some branches crack to your left. You jump up and grab your sword. A small hooded figure emerges from the forest. You can see it’s a dwarf with a note. He gives you the note and disappears in the forest without saying a word. You open the letter and it reads:

Dear traveller

As you may know middle earth is a dangerous place where hard roads are the least of your worries. This challenge will push you to go further than the roads that lead from the shire to Gondor. It will challenge you to open your eyes for things you never even noticed and go to places you haven’t seen before.

This is why you will be exploring the world for this challenge. The goal is to make the best screenshot of them all!

A new era for the guides

Good day everyone!

So in case you aren't aware, The wonderful Eriol has stepped down from the position of Head Guide, mainly to focus on developer things. Before I launch into anything, I'd just like to personally and on behalf of the guides,say thank you Eriol for generally being amazing. Thank you!

So. I have agreed to take his place as the 4th Head Guide since the rank was introduced back in 2017. And it's an honour! I might as well get started.
In my opinion, what better way to show off the guide rank than nice and early with the Anniversary Events coming up this weekend.
A lot of effort has already gone into these events, so I have a lot of confidence they will be some of the best yet. In case you've forgotten what's when then click here.

I'm also very keen to give the guides some shape. What I mean by that is some individuality. The team spirit...

Hello MCME’rs

Thank you all for the many congratulation messages which I have received over the last few days and I would like to thank all of the other Valar for giving me this wonderful opportunity. In this post I would like to make it clear to the community what exactly my role is and what I intend to do in the future. As Head Moderator I will be responsible for managing the Moderators and server moderation; I will also be a Vala/Admin. This is the exact rank description as determined by Eru_Illuvatar q220:

Head Moderator
Staff position. Assigned by Eru Iluvatar to be in charge of being responsible for the Moderator related matters on the server. This person is in charge of the Moderators, and educating them to enforce the Terms of Service and Rules onto the community by using the Tools supplied to him.

Nine Years and Counting!
Its been a journey but its not over just yet!

Editor's Note by Soarz
It's all coming full circle once again and we are ready for it. Nine years doing anything can be hard and we have gained and lost many people over the years. But we take what they left us and move forward starting were they left off. With Eriol handing Head guide to Raffy and Credoo giving the crown to Smaug we have more traction the ever before. We were moving at a good pace but i see that we will be going even faster with the new lines of leadership we now have. Anyways this edition is full of twists and turns that I'm sure you aren't ready for. Sit back and enjoy another exciting new edition of your...

A new Head Guide

I'm very happy to announce that I can finally hand over my responsibilites as Head Guide. I never intended to be Head Guide for that long. I took over in spring and did my best to improve the situation of the guides. To be honest I don't believe I did too well, but with a lot of help from the guides and especially @Arkengard and @Raffyyy we made some great progress. A huge ‘Thag You Very Buch’ to them!
We decided among the Valar team to give the responsibilites of the Head Guide to @Raffyyy! While I was mostly busy with the Helms Deep Battle he did a great job during the past months with event planning and organizing the guides. I'm very confident he'll continue his great work as Head Guide.

I am proud to present to the MCME community:

~MCME's 9th Anniversary~
~Fall Festival~

MCME's 9th WHAT?!

You heard correctly random citizen! Next Thursday (October 10th) MCME will have seen 9 years of building, rebuilding, and uh... yeah more rebuilding. There are few now who can say they've seen how MCME has grown and developed over this time and I'd just like to applaud all those who have stuck around and committed to this wonderful project and community. I'd also like to show deep appreciation for those who join and contribute anytime they're online as this server wouldn't prosper without each and everyone of our enthusiastic members and guests! In honor of this appreciation, the MCME Team has decided to put on a show and celebrate with a series of events and festivities! Without further ado, I'm proud to announce the start of MCME's 9th...​

Chilly Seasons Approach!

We near the end of September and October weather follows!

Editor's Note by Soarz
Another two weeks have come and gone, and to say its been hectic would be an understatement. This past week we finally held the Helms Deep Battle for Node, it had an amazing turnout with many new players coming to check it out. A big majority of the credit goes to our beloved @Eriol_Eandur who put in many months of hard work to make this amazing battle possible. And how could we forget about @TotiGonzales who also spend a substantial about of time making the skins we got to wear and see. That is just a brief...

Fall is Coming!
The cold will not stop our progress!

Proofreader's Note by _Lord_Of_Squids_
Welcome back to the times, everyone! This marks another 2 weeks of progress and fun, and the beginning of another! I've started to feel a change in the air as the year wears on, which is great news for us winter lovers. But, as summer ends, more and more of us are falling to the great beast known as education, and while this may hinder build progress for a little bit our spirits are never daunted! Besides, what better thing to do after a long day at school or university than relax and explore (or build) Middle-earth? So sit back, put your reading glasses on, lower your chair, raise it because you lowered it a...

We can rest MCME!
The hype has finally started to go down!

Editor's Note by Soarz
Another great two weeks have just flown by and lots of progress has been made. Things have begun to slow down but work is still being done all around the map. Many are off to school and that means less time for what we love, but regardless MCME players will always find a way to get on and have the time of their lives. Be sure keep a look out for jobs and different activities that happen on the server, and don't forget to have a wonderful day!

We've gone viral

Editor's Note by Soarz
The last two weeks have been pretty crazy, to say the least. After Node came on we have had a consistent one hundred people on at a time. We have been on not just YouTube, but Reddit, Instagram, and Facebook! We haven't seen these kind of stats in years and progress has boomed! More is being worked on and many adventurers are joining in. To all new players, welcome to MCME! We are glad you could join us in our great feat, and I hope you find a place in the community. Whether its building or sharing your knowledge with the world, I hope you have the time of your life.

I highly recommend joining our Discord Join the mcmiddleearth Discord Server! (click)

The server will be laggy as Minecraft is not well optimized for this amount of people, so you'll have a hard time, we'll keep you up to date on our discord.

Event Season

Preparations are made and work is being done

Editor's Note by Soarz

First off lets give a shout out to _Lord_of_Squids_ for his amazing tour for Node! He did a stellar job and helped boost the server with an influx of people. Despite the server being overran things were controlled and there are only positive things said about all the work done. Speaking of Events, we have our very own summer events just around the corner! Work on the server is going great with jobs going on left and right. Join a job and make MCME great again!

Mid Summer Middle Earth!
There's nothing like Summer Minecraft!

Editor's Note by Soarz
Were half way through the summer and its still as hot as always, so I hope all the workers are getting enough water. Projects are advancing and work is being done all over. Moria has made immense progress with halls going up and jobs being ran - but don't worry! Revamps are happening too. The new JobBot has helped in making it easier for Foreman to make jobs more available and open. Be sure to be on the look out for them, they are fun and open to all!

The Turn of the Times!
We come back to you now, at the turn of the tide!

Editor's Note by Soarz
Hello Fellow MCMER's! It has been a while, so we are proud to announce the return of the MCME Times! There is no doubt that this is a good time for this to happen with BWOT stepping down following Arkengarde's Resignation. They were a big part of MCME for many years and many looked up to them. I thank them both for the time and energy they put into their work on MCME, and hope we can take what they left and move forward. They both worked on the times and set high goals for it, so we aim to do the same and show the community what we can do.

The Future of Builder Leadership

  • 3,166
  • 9
~:~ The Future of Builder Leadership ~:~

After careful consideration, a lot of meetings, and 1 month of careful planning. The valar have decided that it is for the benefit of the community that the role of Head Builder be split. This might come to surprise, as we already removed the development aspect of it with the Head Developer role, however, even then it is a large burden. Therefore we are going to have two Head Builders.

It will be split so that there is a Project Supervisor and Operations Manager sub division within the role. So, let me explain what each one of these roles entails.

Project Supervisor:
Primary Tasks:
  • Review the ongoing projects, optimally on a regular basis. Check up on whether the project is on track regarding the following aspects (maybe more)
    • Styles: Does it match / line up with other builds or does it look alien, if it does, is it just progressive or just plainly...
