    I was just looking through some of the recent deviations on DeviantArt when I stumbled across this webcomic.

    Who has felt like this?

    Ok, I thought I'd stop some confusion (and show off a little )

    This is my set of animals to Date...


    That there is Charlie, my 8 month Dalmatian... He doesn't understand that computers cost a lot of money, so likes to just stamp across the keyboard now and then.


    This is Tiggy, my nearly a year old Pygmy Hedgehog. She also seems to love the sound of clicking around on a keyboard, so will now and then just run across my lap to my keyboard....


    These are Degu's! At present, I have five, four girls, and a boy. The boy (Dook) lives in my room, and talks like a human, so if you hear squeaking while on a Skype call with me, thats who that is! Theres also Wibbley and Kybosh as on family, and Magic and Spooki as another. (picture is Kybosh and Wibbley)


    This is Toby! The guinea pig! Lives in my lil sis' room, but is a family pet. Also loves Keyboards >_> (ignoring the anti-social hedgehog in that picture...)

    and... I have fish. Yeah.

    So that about covers that! So usually, if I spam and yell "Tiggy" "Toby" or "Charlie!" then you know what I mean now 8P

    A massive thank you to everyone who has liked my posts over the past year or so, I have now achieved my 1000 like goal. I guess I better set myself a new forum goal now? In the meantime, please find a little present in your town house. Sorry sandboxers I haven’t got round to you..

    I'm surprised no-one has mentioned the harry potter series and I'd like to see them on the list as well as:
    the three terry prachet films (Hogfather, Colour of Magic and going postal)
    the x-men films
    ghostbusters 1 and 2
    the pirates of the carribean (first three, the fourth one didn't quite fit as a sequel to the third)
    finding nemo (which I suppose comes under most pixar films, thanks joe)
    sherlock holmes, haven't seen the second one yet
    a bugs life (again, thanks joe)
    Pokemon the first movie - Mewtwo strikes back (made me cry the first time I watched it, watch it if you don't know what I mean)
    Pokemon the movie 2000 - the power of one
    Pokemon 3: spell of the unknown
    Bionicle: the Mask of light, legends of metru nui and a web of shadows (3 different movies)
    Back to the Future 2 and 3
    and I know they're not out yet but the hobbit parts 1 and 2 should be there with the rest, here's a link to the trailer.

    Hi Nams,

    Since you are such a key member of our community I thought it would be nice to get you something for your birthday. I therefore present you with a drawing of you as your original avatar by Vendroma (My brother Tom)


    A video of him drawing it will be up on his [url="http://youtube.com/user/vendroma"]YouTube[/url] channel shortly.

    Happy Birthday

    See you in Blockspace

    Yams should hold something for Easter. Perhaps an Easter egg hunt or a giant walk-in Easter egg
    Sound like fun?

    Well this is it everyone, the moment you have all been waiting for, I am just checking the new world for region errors and once that's done I'll be uploading it to the server, this will take an hour or so.

    Please remember this is a new world - so new rules, we ask you to read them all and as explained in my other posts go through sandbox. We may have missed things so please bear with us while we all get settled in.

    All your items on the ark have been transferred and you will find information in game about how to get hold of them!

    For the first day at least only those who have a room on the ark will be able to get on and get a sandbox plot, if you come on and there's no room at sandbox please stay at your ark room, I will be doing approvals this weekend but it’s all dependant on you lot and how your houses look on how fast approvals go!

    Thanks to everyone that’s supported me and my staff throughout the past year and the run up to this move; I hope we will continue to see your support in the new world.

    See you on the other side!

    I know that i'm new here and probably don't have much say,but an idea for a new town could possibly an urbanised area with a huge subway station, apartment buildings and skyscrapers? Just a thought

    racnae reacted in Dont keep yourself to yourself!   
    Hello everyone,

    I feel the need to mention this as I’m not too happy about it a few things recently concerning people sticking to their same little groups and not inviting others to participate:[list]
    [*]Going mining in groups and never inviting others, especially new players: Everyone on YAMS should feel welcome and have the chance to go mining with others.
    [*]Creating “secret” groups amongst people: we are an open community; we don’t need little guilds here and there.
    [*]Hermits and cave dwellers: Don’t keep yourself to yourself in your own little house, come out of your hiding place and talk to others, we won't bite and whats the worst that can happen really? We are a family friendly server, lets keep up to that name!
    [*]Keeping your resources to yourself: I’m talking about the people who keep their items to themselves and won’t give them up unless it benefits them! Sure you have worked hard to get the materials but spreading a few amongst new players won’t hurt you and I’m sure the new players will remember it well. Some of the best stories I’ve heard from people on YAMS are about those that were offered materials when they had nothing to build with! And I’m not talking about community chests and leaving your junk in there; I’m talking about actually handing something to someone they can actually use.
    [*]People not willing to give tours because it’s not their job: It doesn’t have to be a member of staff who gives a tour, if they are not on or seem very busy, why not offer to do it for them? Some of the most successful tours I’ve seen done are by non-staff members.
    [*]Working on projects but not letting others help out: It’s no fun not being able to help out on anything, especially when you really feel you could help but get shoved away all the time when you ask.
    [*]Building projects but not telling others: There’s been a few instances recently in which a few projects have been created but unless you were there at the time it was built or were told directly about it, you’d never know about it. Sure there’s the saying that you should explore YAMS and find these things but some of these projects have been in the most obscure locations and as a new player I may not enter for fear of being banned.
    [*]Lots more….
    Basically were a community. Our number 1 rule if you didn’t know is be a part of the community. So peeps let’s see more working together amongst you all, instead of little pockets of people here and there in selective groups talking or working together!

    We are all to blame including me, so I am locking this topic and hope you all take this post as a reflection on how we can all improve!


    P.S. Have a Good Christmas/Holiday and a Happy New Year!

    Ok I've just got home and did a quick test with a vanilla profile (pure minecraft nothing else) and everything seems ok, I will now start to do final tests plus upload world + plugins as I took everything off in case worlds got corupted..

    [b]UPDATE 17:17 GMT:[/b] Ok uploading worlds now, this will take a while, an hour plus, so check back latter for progress!

    [b]UPDATE 17:20 GMT:[/b] Wow player files are transfering across quick, wonder if it is anything to do with new harddrive or not. Normally the 2300+ small files take me a while as it has to check each one has uploaded correctly, this time its super speed! :S Also noticed the control panel was fast for me... wonder how long this will last!
