~ Interviews ~

Now as it will become a custom we have two interviews; the “First Impressions Interview” and the “Meet the Regulars Interview”. LegoCellist will be interviewing a new adventurer about their experience on MCME. But on this edition of the Times, I (superlolster), will be interviewing our regular. Our regular this edition is The Lorax himself... @Greenleaf
Interview with @Greenleaf

Question 1: How did you find MCME?
I believe on the yt channel.
*Do I have to write essays?*

Superlolster: No, a well formed sentence would be nice though.

Question 2: What was your experience like as an Adventurer?
Boring, but I remember playing hide and seek with other people tho, which made it a bit better.

Superlolster: Sounds like a pretty fun time you had...

Question 3: What made you want to become an Artist?
I was bored of only building in freebuild and waiting for jobs in order to build, and also, Moria was an artist and I wasn't so I was a bit jealous of him :p

Superlolster: Pretty valid reason if you as me :p

Question 4: What is your favorite thing about being an Artist?
Being able to build whenever I want to build.

Superlolster: Again, valid reason xD

Question 5: Where is your favorite place on MCME?
Hmmm this is a tough one,but I would say Pelargir.

Question 6: Who is your favorite character in LOTR or the Hobbit?
In lotr probably Gimly and in The Hobbit, master of lake town (I have no idea why I just like Stephen Fry)

First Impressions Interview
By LegoCellist

Here is the segment of the Times where I question a new adventure about his experience on the server. This week I would like to introduce @TheRedSurvivor, and thank him for taking the time to answer these questions.

Question 1: How did you find the server?
It is great from every way you look at it.

LegoCellist: Glad you like it :)
BWOT: lol, I think you misunderstood the question

Question 2: What were your impressions of the community on the server when you first joined?
Very friendly and helpful with no fighting and immature language.

LegoCellist: Really...I mean yeah the community is very..mature?

Question 3: What was your impression of our finished projects; Minas Tirith and the Shire?
They are incredible with years of work put into them.

Question 4: What was your impression of our current projects such as Dol Amroth, Moria and technically Mordor?

I have not been able to build on any projects before due to insufficient jobs.

LegoCellist: Here we see the saying that the foremen are the laziest rank on the server playing out…

Question 5: So overall what was your impression of MCME?

The best game I have ever played creating artistic builds with friendly people from all over the world.

Thank you again @TheRedSurvivor!

Artist
Building is one of the fundamental parts of Minecraft Middle Earth, and it is done by the the amazing Artists on the server. Many times we are asked how can I build and we have an answer for you: Become an Artist! Working on all the new projects with Designers and Foremen while furthering your building skills in this community is something all Artists get to take part in!
Does this sound like something that you would like to do? You can apply for Artist/ today on the forums! The Designers and current Artists will work with you and help you on your journey.

Guide
You’ve joined MCME but you have a knack for something else than building? But how can you do something different on a build server? Become a Guide! There are many things other than building that help the server and one of those things is guiding people:
As a guide, you are the face of MCME! Without the rank of guide, we don’t attract nearly as many new players and those responsibilities are shifted onto busier shoulders. We are here to keep people interested and make MCME as fun as possible without distracting the focus of the server. Think that sounds like something you would want to do?
Just click Guide and apply today!


~ Closing Statement ~

That’s right! Time for everyone’s favorite portion of The Times!!! Featuring your favorite owl, Ark :) I feel like I’ve been saying this for weeks… Things are really moving along! Our beloved DA is being wrapped up with sewer repairs and final houses being added, Belfalas gets more farms every day, and even Moria has been getting quite a bit of love. We can now look ahead to Badges amongst other new features being added to the server… and of course… that dark shadow, Mordor.

Here’s a Tolkien/Treebeard quote for you suckers till our next Edition:

“Never is too long a word, even for me...”
