Big credits to DinowCookie whom I "borrowed" this concept from ;)


Here is something to celebrate some recent milestones for me on PMC! 🎉
700 + 1 subscribers, a return to doing what I love on this website, and my updates to a lot of the content I felt I had neglected over the years!

I feel that "Thank You" is too short and not accurate enough for how much I appreciate everyone who takes interest in what I post, albeit years ago or yesterday! So just know, that the reason I keep posting, is because of you :)


Ask TomConn
(The "totally not a rip-off of Ask Dinow" edition!)


This is a thread where you can ask me all your questions, and even leave small build requests! I will answer as long as it's fun and friendly :)

  "Just an ask me me anything? And only Small build requests?! boooooring!"

Instead of just asking you to give me requests and questions, I had something in mind


Ask me:

... to pick a favorite submission from your gallery

I'll browse through your submissions, find the creation I like the most, and then tell you why I like it. Keep in mind, it's a little unfair if you ask this question and only have 1-2 submissions ;)

... for feedback

Link me a submission, forum post, wall-post, anything content related really, and ask for feedback. Your best chances would be with builds or blogs as those are my main areas.

You can also link to skins, texture-pack, data-packs etc. but keep in mind that I mostly only have surface level knowledge about them. I will have to skip on very lengthy content, for time reasons. I do have to study besides PMC after all ;)

... to make a small build for you

Send a reference picture or describe what kind of build you'd want to see me create. I'll give it my best shot and reply to you with a schematic download + some pictures.

Maximum size for builds are 50x50, and making builds will take quite some time compared to answering questions, so! If you request a build, I'll work on it and send it when it's finished :)

Oh! And please don't upload it to PMC, I'd like to compile all of the build requests from this post into a "700 subscribers special bundle!" :D
And no NSFW requests... Just to be clear

... for a guest book post

I'll post an image, a quote, compliment or something else to your guest book. Mainly taking inspiration from your profile itself, or maybe even from something I know about you :0

Make sure to have the guest book widget you your profile.

... about my experience on PMC

9 years of activity on this website... Oh my, started as a skin-stealer and now I'm a mod (how did I get here??) There are quite a few stories to tell from my time here, so hey! If you would like to hear some, feel free to ask.

I might also yoink some of your questions and add them to my Box Of Thoughts blog, in case I find the question to be of extra-interest :)

... anything*

Secretly this is still a boring 'ask me anything' in disguise.

Ask for compliments, feedback, opinions, fun facts, a new idea, help or about who TomConn is, the mysteries of the universe, Planet Minecraft things...

Or just share something that you'd like to share with me, even if it's not a question. I always enjoy talking to others :)

I welcome feedback, my builds are on the Xbox One Edition and I didn't see a section for that so I've posted on Community/video, the 'Wall' and Discussions/Creations (a real life building design and FarCry2 maps). I'm new to the site and not sure if I'm posting in correct place. Is the 'Maps' section for maps you can download? What is 'Wall posts'? Any info and feedback appreciated. I don't have a computer, only an Xbox, so all my build posts are links from my Youtube (Mikk_Q_Design) which are from my Xbox Twitch app. You have likely seen the advertisement on this site for 'The Bravern' apartment. I designed that building and the one to it's right (out of picture) when I woked for NBBJ Architects in Seattle, I love seeing that advertisement here.

Deftly my favorite, and the most spooky of all your skins! The shading of the legs, and the white/gray body fading over to the complete black is so cool! Not really sure how you made the fade so well, but it looks amazing :D

There is a reason I subbed to you ;D Generally speaking, I love those small vehicle builds with amazing attention to detail, however - Favorite submission would deftly be the Bucyrus-Erie 4250-W - I like when I look at a picture of something made in Minecraft and go "How the heck did he do that?" Specifically in the last picture: The windows in the back of it + the fence... I'll have to download it now to see exactly how/ what blocks you used to make that :D

Favorite block would probably be Sandstone. The reason for it being that my most commonly used blocks would be Spruce planks. The various stone types don't really help the shapes or spruce planks really stick out, but using sandstone, it can break up a very dark build and shift focus to somewhere else. At the same time: I'm not much for using completely white blocks because it looks either too clean, or I want to use it for terrain instead :p

Spruce Valley Kingdom

One of my favorite themes is Medieval/ fantasy, and I build stuff like that myself a lot :D So to see something of similar theme, even with amazing detailed interiors, I can't really sway myself to choose something else :') I hope you guys keep working on it and updating it :D

Feel free to answer one, two, three or none of the things below:

... to pick a favourite submission from your gallery
Your favourite (non-massive*) redstone build of mine
*excluding my massive (probably broken over MC-versions/time) builds such as 'chess', 'game of the goose' and 'paint'

... to make a small build for you
More of a fun one for your 700+12 subscriber special bundle; A slime (profile picture) gobbling up the PMC/world globe, or sitting on it.

... for feedback
I always struggle/debate with myself on how to present redstone-builds into a proper & understand-able description. So that people fully understand what my build is capable off.
So instead of the build I like you to give feedback on my description of my latest redstone build

As FishStacks pointed to: PMC is an ackronym for "Planet MineCraft"

About how to become a moderator on PMC: Activity is key :)
All moderators were/ are active members of the PMC community + are typically somewhat well-known in parts of the community. My main activity for example, is around blogs, builds, and the forums. Usually when you've been active/ shown that you care about the community and it's well-being, then you might be contacted by Cyprezz who will ask a few questions, getting to know you etc.

There are no "mod-applications" to fill like on a Minecraft Server. It's all based off-of activity & personality :)

Carpeteer V1 without a doubt!
I have no clue how you make mods, but what I do know is that being able to customize carpets and carpet designs is something I want in vanilla Minecraft, purely because it would open up some amazing possibilities for creating more complex patterns in your house. It would also make creating arrows on the ground a lot easier, avoiding the bright pink glazed terracotta arrow that is currently in vanilla :D

Banished

While I gotta admit that I think Serpent's Bane looks way cooler, I would rather use the Banished skin as my actual skin if I had to choose :D What I really like about the banished would be the shading you've used - It makes him look a little dirty, as if there is some rubble on his clothe and face - and the hand design! Oh my!
Feedback wise: Serpent's Bane is a lot cooler to look at than Banished because of the clearly marked golden lines, and the same time, it's a lot more unique than a human skin with amazing detailing, so I'd recommend you try and mess around with making more skins like the Serpent's Bane, even though I fully understand that it's most likely one of the more difficult type of skins to make. But just those clearly marked lines + a unique non-human character (more so just a humanoid character )
But I mean - Look at what you made 2 years ago, and what you make now... If you ever feel like you've never improved, go back and read this, because you've made some serioustly impressive progress! :D

how did you find pmc, and made you want to join?
As far as I recall, I found this site while looking for builds to download so that I could show them to my friends and say I made them... :D I realized that this website was easy for me to use at the time, and that my friends didnt know about the site. Then in 2012 I started trying to make skins, began uploading some - Realized I was bad at it, and started stealing again :'D

how did you come up with your username?
If you heard of the webseries Eddsworld, you might know that there is a character named Tom in that series. In real life the actors name is Thomas Tomska, and little me, always looked up to Tom and the creator of Eddsworld (Edd Gould) - So what I did was say: My real life name is Thomas as well, and my laster name is Connor... TomConn!!!
And ever since then I've stuck to it :p

what's your favorite submission of mine?
Crayon! I like meme skins :))
But on a more serious note: Ragtime Spook is deftly my favorite :D I like the beige/ cream/ brown theme, sticking to the ragtime theme and colour-pallette, while also getting that spooky element of making it a skeleton. I know very little about skins, but I know that I like this one :D
can you build a small teal/blue dragon with human ears?
