    benjamine12 reacted in 09/01/2014 - YAMS 3rd Year Anniversary   
    Wow... just wow... 3 years of running YAMS, when I set-up YAMS 3 years ago I had no idea we would still be here today, but I'm glad we are, while there have been both bad and good times, it's been an enjoyable experience and I'm proud to be a part of our family friendly community server.
    For the previous 2 anniversaries I gave story timeline posts of YAMS, detailing key things that happened in YAMS at what times. You can see them here (YAMS 1st Year Anniversary / YAMS 2nd Year Anniversary).
    This year I'm not going to give you so much a story timeline, but rather explain to you why we run YAMS the way we do so you can get a better understanding of YAMS and help us shape the future of YAMS. You can read this post here (The Future of YAMS for 2014).
    But before you disappear into the future...
    I would like to invite you all to celebrate 3 years of YAMS with me, this Saturday the 11th of January 2014 at 4:00pm GMT / 11:00am EST / 10:00am CST / 8:00am PST (See correct time for your country by clicking here) for a very special community event.
    I will also be holding various other community events from now till then... keep an eye open for details in this topic/post.
    If anyone wants to do anything in YAMS to celebrate 3 years just go ahead and do so, if you think you need approval for something just ask a member of staff, I'm sure they will ok it or help you get it approved, it's all about celebrating.

    Sounds good to me! Count me in! :)
    I want to play 1 game of mann vs machine, if we can get 6 players (includes myself and steer) then I will pay for each of us to play one game of intermediate (easy for those that don't normally play mvm).
    So yeah get 6 players and I pay for tour of duty tickets, but you have to stay for whole match I need the achievement! :D

    Yes, this post is a tad pre-mature :P but who can escape the easter vibe? (and it will also be easter by you lot soon enough ;)) So we colored eggs a few minutes ago :D and look at this one that I made, using my superb art skills :P

    If you can't make it out, it says: "YAMS Easter 2013" :P

    Sitting in a pub with my cup of tea, waiting for my little sister to finish her choir (as well as watching the match haha) I ask my mam "do you know where any USB sticks are in the house?" And she says "yeah, why?"

    "Cos I need one"



    And this is the best bit.

    "Oh look, I'm not going to tell your YAMy people!"

    .... It's for Mother's Day xD

    benjamine12 reacted in 01/02/2013 - YAMS 2nd World 1st Year Anniversary   
    What a mouthful of a topic... let me explain....

    On the 18th of February of 2013 we will have been living in our current world for 1 whole year, before that we lived in another world which is sometimes called YAMS v1, we journeyed to the world we live in now on The Ark which you can find in the north east ocean.

    I’d like to invite you all to celebrate our achievements throughout the past year in this world, not by revisiting the old world as this has been done before, but instead by celebrating what we have now in our current world. Though there will be some off world explorations.... :D

    So from now till Monday the 18th be on the lookout for some upcoming events that will be posted in the forums.

    Thank you,

    Between Saturday the 16th of February 2013 10am and Sunday the 17th of February 2013 10am, I will be playing Minecraft for 24 hours straight in YAMS, or at least attempting too, I will start out with no materials at all and I will not be able to go to my house to collect any unless it’s an emergency (griefers etc) or I’m setting up an event for everyone. Note to self: Raid community chests first!

    I will need all the support I can get if I am to keep awake; anyone is welcome to join me along the way, I will appreciate some company.

    Before I can begin however I need some challenges from you, so please post as many as you can below.

    Some examples are:

    Collect a certain amount of materials.
    Kill 100 zombies.
    Go for 5 hours without dying.

    I need all suggestions the day before the event starts, SteerpikeSister will then collate all suggestions for me and pick the one/s I am do be doing which I will post here.

    Wish me luck!
    I must be mad....

    Default texture pack FTW! Its how the original "Steve" would have wanted minecraft to be played, he died a horrible and painful death a long time ago, the Steve's you seen in Minecraft today are nothing but clones! We should respect his wishes!  ^_^

    Interesting and sorry but yes nether portals created using dispensers will be blocked, I'm not nice, go find it properly!

    Weird about the TNT with dispensers as I was wondering last night about something to do with TNT and having them spawn primed, this makes what I was thinking easier... muwhahaha!
