No part of this blog is a rant on abusive mods or unfair submission removals.

Hi, sorry that I haven't posted in a while, but here is my blog on how my PMC experience has changed over the months, what has gotten better and sadly, what has gotten worse.


From Humble Beginnings

Before I can tell you the story of my PMC experience, I need to tell you this story first. I was on my first survival server (ever) and I saw a rule saying 'no griefing.' My friend had told me about the art of griefing and how it was a very bad thing, so I was scared to go near any house. I built a shelter, but lacked cobble, so I thought 'they'll never find out!' I totally ripped up a cobblestone house (except for the protected stuff) and finished my base.


It felt good ripping that house to bits, and stealing all the cobble, so I griefed another house (completely.) And as I was griefing my 3rd house, the owner came and banned me. I should have mentioned, in every house I griefed, I stuck a sign up saying 'MR FLINT GRIEFED UR HOUSE!!!!" Ahhh, the old days.


I went onto a rather popular server. I griefed and griefede and griefed, hanging Mr Flint signs up everywhere, until I found a half griefed house. I thought that looked ugly, so I half griefed the rest of the houses on the server. I found another griefer, and we were called the Flint Grief Gang. We griefed even harder until one day, another griefer was copying us with their sign technique. We griefed and griefed and griefed, until I griefed a note block house. The owner banned me.


I griefed many more servers, got banned from many more servers, started using nodus, signed up to the old iCanHasGrief forum, and mad (many) enemies. Eventually, after they teased me for being only 12 years old, I would make Flint Grief Gang massive. I made an (unsuccessful) free website, then posted a grief-team app on MCForums. I got an infraction plus tempban for organising/promoting griefing.


After that, I thought that maybe I would sign up from Planet Minecraft as I found heaps of servers to grief from there. I made my application. 2 days later, forum infraction. I thought that was damn stupid how nobody would let me just organise a team of griefers, so I could achieve my dream of overthrowing ICHG.


Eventually, I threw in the towel on griefing, and thought I might get a 'life.' I used MCForums a bit, but every time I posted (I DID read every rule) I got an infraction for the dumbest reasons ever. I got absolutely fed up, and left. I thought, maybe I could use PMC a bit. I posted a few blogs in which today would be classified as spam. They were mainly recruitments and questions.


I decided to make a texture pack, called Shinycraft. It was a bit of a flop, so I made the Ultimate Troll Texture Pack! I was level 3 and it got me to level 23!!!!! The mods removed it for being unoriginal; back to level 3. I thought I might make more original textures, so I got a little bit of XP from that. I got ultra mega super very astonishingly bored. I decided that maybe I could risk another blog, and make it original, and a very funny piece of literature!


Back to the old days of griefing, the blog was called 'I'm From PMC, Gimme OP.' I kept updating it, adding new stuff for many months, until one day, new rules for blogs were put in place, then a moderator got the opportunity to remove it. Fortunately, I wrote 3-5 serious blogs/rants (including Slanderman v1 and What it Means to Diamond a User) to keep some of that XP. I PMed the mod and he said I could re-post it without the bad stuff. It was a totally new version. During the gap, I uploaded 35% of all blogs I have today. But back to the other one, it was removed because it was making fun of moderators. I PMed another moderator for advice on how to stop these god-forsaken removals (mind you, all REMOVED, not DISABLED) and he said the following

  • He knew I wanted to be a mod
  • He wanted me to respect the staff more
  • I was 1 infraction from a permaban in the chat
  • He commented about my snarky remarks
  • He said I really shouldn't push it, I should really screw my head on

(I was asked to remove the direct quote)

Yes, it is true, I somewhat disrespected the mods, I was one infraction from a permaban (I estimate I'm at 1-3 now), and I just put little effort into my submissions. I, however got a handful more warnings and bans after that, until I read got a comment from an Infini Garde member that I am improving in my blogging skills. I removed all the remaining of my blogs that infringed even one rule and I haven't had a fair removal ever since. I have gotten one removal from a mistake, because the texture pack was over 1 month old.


I continue to blog today, but one day I do wish to own a Minecraft Website of my own. I am making the HTML, CSS, and JavaScript of it today (26th of June 2013). I am no longer really interested in a moderator position, but I still help to report stuff and help out others, but it would be a real pleasure if I do (ever) get a chance at something like that. Never give up, eh.



What PMC Has Become

PMC used to be a site where all submissions were quality, people were obsessed with Ponies and Pokemon and where less-strict rules flowed through PMC. Today, the rules are stricter (for good reasons), not much pony spam goes on, but we are flooded with SkyDoesMinecraft's crap, and we just have fun! The site is faster, I don't ever have to empty my cache to do anything now!


So PMC can change over time, and many good and bad things can happen. You will experiance many things. For me, I sure hope my blogging experiance will keep on going, even when I do have the website. It will hopefully be a legacy, I will try find a place to post even after I leave PMC. I do hope that I stay here for many more years though. This is the end of the beginning for me, not the beginning of the end! My journey here is just beginning! I will stay here for many years to come, posting blogs and more!

Well, I got perm-banned because I made another account, but it was my cousin who made one on the same computer after I made mine, so I got unbanned. And I also had a 1 day ban and a skin removed because it looked similar to another. But, it was restored. I've also gotten an infraction in chat once for accidentally advertising twice in 15 minutes. That's all I have to say :P

I got a 7-day permaban for...... too many failed blogs... YUP! I got 5 submissions removed (Because I reached level 13 the rules got stricter or something...) and I had tons of people who were flagging my stuff, but SERIOUSLY BETHAMEZ? 7-Days?! What the heck! I've had so many submissions removed, only like 3 of them were against the rules, but the other ones didn't break the rules, or follow them. I have that problem. I liked it when I wasn't famous... Only 7 subscribers, no one would ever report anything of mine since no one cares for a level 4 who writes weird stuff. NOW EVERY SUBMISSION I POST GETS FLAGGED!!! Not all removed but still, EVERY ONE GETS FLAGGED!!!

I totally respect you as a blogger. But as a popular blogger myself, I wish the blogging restrictions would be a bit less.. strict. But that's just me. I've been subbed to you since I first began on PMC, and you were actually the person who inspired me to write my first blog (Which was a huge success!). I just wanna say thank you for giving me inspiration, without it, I'd probably still be back at level 9 or something. I really enjoy blogging now, and I'm starting to get noticed by a lot of PMCers because of it. So yeah.. Thank you.

wait till the new blogging rules come out. If you think they're strict now, well... least everyone will know what a blog actually IS.

Ahh, yeah those times where evryone was obsessed with ponnies and there was hate towards bronies and rants about hate of bronies, or the arrow to the knee jokes, or gangam style parodies. I don't remember seeing much about pokemon though...

Some people think that I have no respect for mods because I'm not really afraid to say how I feel to them. I respect everyone, I just don't fear everyone. I really have no fear of mods, or any 'famous' or infamous' PMCer. I don't like to suck up to people just because they have more power than I do. Really, the worst think that anyone mod can do to me is ban me and take my EXP. I don't want to be banned, but I did learn a long time ago that EXP is just a number on the top of the screen. Everyone should learn that by now, I honestly think that no one should post something just for EXP.

Because its a lot of trouble for me to go through to figure out which mod you PM'd and ask about it I'll just ask here. Is the PM you have in the spoiler a direct quote from a PM, or paraphrasing? You really need to remove it until you have permission from the mod or display having the permission as we do not allow public posting of PMs with moderators without their consent. Not really worth disabling this because I know you aren't doing it to bash mods.
