I founded this community on October 10 2010.

It all began when I was introduced to Minecraft around June or August 2010. I started playing the game, and I immediately loved the endless possibilities and the social aspect of the game. I mainly played multiplayer in that time (alpha oof! https://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Java_Edition_Alpha_v1.1.2_01) even though it was terrible unstable, I had tons of fun!

Around that time I also became a moderator for the Tweakcraft Minecraft server, a server being hosted by people from Tweakers.net. The server was run by Grum, who now works at Mojang. During my stay there among all those technical people, I really got interested into the aspects of running a Minecraft server for myself, and that is when I decided to rent myself a server box at a data center.

I hosted various Minecraft servers which were available for everyone to join, offering a wide range of RPG plugins and simple mods. These were fairly popular but managing a server with multiple people at that would just end up in tons of griefing.

I wanted something more serious than constantly redoing servers and having to reset the world. I wanted to create a very small community of people who would have fun playing together and doing something constructive instead of annoying other players.

I wanted to offer my time and resources to an idea that I would find interesting. While browsing the minecraftforums, I found some great ideas and reached out to some of the posters with the question if I can do something to make it real.
One of those was recreating the entire world of Middle-Earth. Growing up with Lord of the Rings, my interest peaked! After some discussion and finding willing people to start off the project, the first blocks were being built shortly after.

Nowadays I do MCME's finance, manage the IT infrastructure, oversee the strategic direction, scout and assign administrators and do public relations.
