    I have many! I work at a dressage horse barn where I basically do the basic chores and work with keeping the horses in show-shape. I also help run a rescue for animals! We currently have 12 horses, 15 dogs, 5 birds, a handful of chickens, and a pig! Oh and starting this month I'm a full time college student:)

    Hi! Kind of an introductory question, why did you pick the moderating life? And what would you really like to see added to Minecraft?

    I didn't pick the moderating life, it picked me. I was asked by Islid and Socks to join the team two years ago. I was having a hard time, and honestly it seemed like a good way to give back to the place that brought me so much joy. I didn't know it would be this much work, or that I'd eventually become a Senior Admin, but it's still worth it.
    I'd like to see vertical slabs. And more stairs. Things you can use not just for utility but for decoration.

    I picked the mod life and the mod life chose me. I really wanted to do more on the server than just quietly mine all day.

    As for minecraft additions? probably more options for purpur, quartz and prismarine. (slabs, fences, etc). Oh and wallpaper would be cool too.

    The mod life chose me :p Jinx asked me to join the staff on October 3rd, coming on two years now.

    As for what I think should be added to Minecraft... everything in stair and slab form. Everything.

    I'm not sure if I actually handled that request or if I just read about it but there once was one just saying "Horses are cool"

    There used to be a player called "Whatsasociallife". They changed their name though and no longer play on the server, I believe.

    Currently I only work 20-24 hours per week. I guess I spend about the same amount of time on server stuff. It's hard to say how much time one actually spends on the server when basically a lot of discussion and planning is done on discord or googledocs and such. Those are always with me on my phone.

    I'm a nanny.

    Like Stormy said: "I didn't pick the moderating life, it picked me."
    I was asked to join staff in June 2014 after only 4 months on the server. I hardly knew anyone. It was kind of scary XD

    tbh, we are basically working for the Foundation to Decrease Worldsuck. so if you are interested in giving money for a good cause, how about checking out the perks on http://donate.nerdcrafteria.com/ ? :)

    I remember when I was kinda new to the server, I really thought @TurnDownTheAC was an interesting username choice :p I also have recently seen MelonLordToph which is pretty cool to me.

    I still have to do the adult thing and try to do that >.<

    I always wanted to be a Mod here since I had previous experience modding small chat websites, but I never applied because I didn't have experience with plugins (still don't really) and I was always quiet (still am) and thought they wouldn't want me on Staff unless I was asked. After a year and a half I kinda let the hope go and like 6 months from my 3rd anniversary, I was asked to be one :D So I didn't really pick it but I really wanted to be picked for a long time.

    Stuff I would like to see added: More blocks for decorating. And more ways to turn slabs and stairs in different directions. (FTB has spoiled me)

    I like TilDeathDoUSArt. Also I believe there was a DoctorWhom. I know there were others, but I can't recall them atm.

    I was asked to join staff in 2014, but turned it down as I didn't feel that it was a good time for me to be adding that responsibility to my plate. In 2015 I was asked again; this was right around when the server was preparing to switch over to a new Mainworld map. I figured the server was preparing for big changes, and an extra part of hands on deck could really help, so I joined.

    As for what I want added, more colourful stairs/slabs. They open up a whole realm of possibilities for builds and detailing, but there's so few options currently. I'd love Stair and slab blocks for the various stained clays....

    2 hours each day. Up to 4 hours on days I don't have to work. So 14-18 hours per week I guess.

    I feel like this is the set up to some kind of joke, but i can't think of a good punchline ...

    I tend to find a nice dark wall to stare at :p
