General Discussion / Happy 12th Birthday Famcraft!
« on: April 29, 2024, 11:53:47 AM »
 Wow, it feels like only yesterday I was wishing Famcraft a happy 11th. Where did a whole year go so quickly?

 I know we've had an incredibly busy year here. We haven't had much time to get on the server and play. We need to find a way to make time. We still check the forums daily, usually multiple times per day.
 We've had it in the plan to get updated to the current version. We've just not found the time yet and we appreciate yall's patience. Hopefully soon we can get on track with the update. There a lot that goes into syncing up the admin team's available time to make things work out.

 It's always a nice feeling when we check the recent visitors to the forum and see how many of you still check in. Thank you all for remembering us after all these years. It means the world to us. <333

 Happy Birthday Famcraft. All my love.  <3333

 Oops! Looks like we got the spelling wrong the first time. Sorry about that. You should be able to join now. Hope to see you on soon!

 .. and hopefully my final reply.

 Your plea is very well written and it certainly seems to be sincere - thank you for that. After careful discussion with the other admins we feel it would be appropriate to welcome you back to Famcraft. You should find all your builds and items just as you left them. I hope to be online to welcome you back and help you find your way around. If no one is online to help, type /server classic then /homes to  see a list of your saved locations. Welcome back <3. - RubensCherub

 You were the MOST trouble, Thoatt.  Probably the worst player that we had that didn't quite hit the banning point. Always just barely skirting the rules. Just enough that you were not technically doing or saying anything wrong.  I guess you turned out okay enough. Thanks for sticking around, Mr.Owner.   <33

 Happy Birthday Famcraft! Thank you all for our amazing first 10 years!

 We appreciate each and every one of you, staff and players alike for enriching our lives and being a part of Famcraft. We couldn't have done it without you.

 The past few years have been full of chaos, challenges and changes for all of us. Our owners and much of our staff team has seen a drastic reduction in available time to be present on the server. As a result  of this we've been able to accept less new players over the past many months. Even without the inclusion of new players, we've been striving the keep the server alive and well and maintain a safe and happy place for our current existing players.
  We are sorry to those of you who've not been able to get into the server as of yet. We are careful to only allow new players into the community when we are confident there is enough active staff to help new people become properly acquainted with our rules and the Famcraft gameplay experience. While we do keep  a close eye on chat and are here if needed, we have not have a lot of time to offer tours and help players get started on Famcraft lately. Hopefully, eventually things will settle down for some of us and we will be more available to assist new players.

 The past 10 years have been incredible. We've met some of the kindest, most caring people we will ever be lucky enough to know. We've formed lifelong bonds with many of our staff members and players. Several of our staff members have even had the opportunity to meet each other. A lot of us think of each other as family. We've all shared a common goal of maintaining a safe and happy place for players and their families. We hope to continue to be an island among servers for many years to come.

 I am not here and active in chat nearly as often as I want to be, but Famcraft is always in my heart. and on my mind.

 I'd like to get real sappy now and thank you all for what you've given us.

 Thank you to our Founders. The two players who originally founded Famcraft have moved on now. They have busy lives and families they take care of. We still greatly appreciate their contributions to the server. Their original vision included a safe server for players and their families with rules strict enough to keep everyone safe and a caring staff team to  enforce those rules and offer guidance and support to players. We appreciate that they wanted to offer this kind of world to the Minecraft community. In 2018, Famcraft was moved over to it's current owners who were long time staff members prior to becoming the permanent guardians of Famcraft.

 Thank you to the Owners of Famcraft. The people who own the physical hardware and maintain/upgrade the software and hardware and pay the bills associated with Famcraft. Even though we say they "own Famcraft" I know it's really the other way around. Famcraft owns their hearts and as much of their time as they can possibly devote to it. I don't think they'd have it any other way.
 I've personally witnessed the abundance of time and love they've put into maintaining the server for us. Sleepless nights working on server issues. The care and research that's gone into upgrading the hardware. The painstakingly written custom code for many of the plugins we use. The heartache of not being able to spend enough time with the community we love due to circumstances beyond anyone's control. Thank you, Thoatt and Kealper. We could not and would not be here without you.

 Thank you to the entire family of Famstaff - past and present. Every single one of you has contributed to getting us here to this 10 year mark. We've made it an entire decade thanks to you all. We've seen many staff members come and go over the years. Some were only with us for a few weeks, others have been here for years. Many have left informational builds, resources and beautiful displays our players still enjoy today. Everyone has had the same goal - keeping Famcraft a safe and happy place to be.
 Being staff on Famcraft is especially challenging. We have some pretty strict rules and it is always difficult have to correct players. No one likes having to ban someone who won't follow the rules. Banning isn't even the hard part. Our staff team has put in hundreds of combined hours offering tours and teaching players the basics of how to get around on the server. They've spent even more time offering gentle guidance, helping resolve conflicts between players and just enjoying the conversation and company of Famcrafter's when they just needed a friendly place to unwind. Many of our staff members check in throughout the days and nights from their phones and tablets even when they cant actively be on Famcraft. The current Famstaff team's selfless devotion is unparalleled. We'd be so lost without them. Several have been with us for many, many years now. They've kept us afloat when we could not be here ourselves. There are no words to explain what you mean to us. Thank you so much, Famstaff team. <333

 And last but far from least, our beloved Players. Yall are incredible. Every single one of you. Players join and leave. They play a few hours or a few years. Some come back months or years later. Some never return. One thing is for sure, we keep every block you guys place - unless of course you were griefing.. haha. But no, seriously, regardless of if you were here in 2012 or 2021 you can always log in and find your homes and areas just as you left them the last time you logged out. We keep these things safe because we care about you. We never want you to log in and find that the map has been reset or that your homes are gone.  So we guard them carefully and keep them ready for your return.
 Famcraft has never had a map reset. Even when we were forced to add a new map due to an update we kept the old map and have it linked as a separate, fully intact and easily accessible world for you all. It's still safely located on Famcraft today at /server classic.
 Many of our players have touched our lives in ways they will never realize. You wouldn't believe how often we quote players from years ago, or recall a fond memory of a build they shared. We are always excited to see players from long ago return to say hello. So many of you left as kids and now return to tell us you've graduated, or gotten married or even have children of your own. What an amazing world we share. Even many of our banned players are remembered fondly for what they said or contributed while they were still active players.
 Over the years, Famcrafters have made us laugh and cry, and at times growl with frustration. They've made us sigh. They caused us to lose sleep or gain compassion. They've opened our eyes to other ways of thinking and new ideas. They've given us reasons to alter rules, and add new ones. Famcraft players have never ceased to surprise us with their sneakiness, their cleverness, their kindness or their generosity. We never know what we are going to see when we log in. The good and the bad, we love it all. We love learning from yall.
 When we first started this adventure, we felt like we had so much to teach. As it turned out we had a lot to learn too- And we are still learning. Thank you, Famcrafters. Old and new, past, present and future players. We are here for you. We love you guys. Keep on Famcrafting.

 We are Famcraft.

 To those of you who never knew me. LUCKY!

 To those of you who've known me too well, you should have been expecting this long rambling post filled with sappy run-on sentences and scattered thoughts and ideas. I'm glad I didnt let you down.

 To those who don't know me yet- I look very forward to meeting you someday when I have more time on the server. 

 I am RubensCherub. Famcraft's biggest Fan. You have my heart, Keep it safe.

 Love you all. Many hearts! <3333333333333        - RubensCherub

April 29, 2022 Status Update. Famcraft is 10 years old!

 Happy 10th Birthday Famcraft!

 Thank you to the founders, owners, and all past and current staff and all our players over the years for starting Famcraft and keeping the server alive and well. We love you all. You are an amazing group of people and we feel so lucky to know you. We look forward to the next 10 years. Happy Birthday Famcraft!

 You can still post a plea if you like. We just mostly need to know that you understand the rules and know not to advertise other servers here so we can consider unbanning you.

 You were permbanned April 2018 for advertising another server on Famcraft. I hope this helps.   - Rubens
