Hello!

Planet Minecraft's 10 year anniversary is on Sunday, November 8th! We're not quite ready to reveal all of the details yet, and even so, we're going to keep some things secret until the day-of. BUT let it be known that the 8th will be an all-day fun-filled PARTY. So, mark your calendars! And keep those peepers peeled for a little bit more information in the near future! We don't want you to miss it!


Part of our celebrations will be interview write-ups with Cyprezz and Paril! Use this forum to ask your burning questions. Please specify WHO (it can be both) the question is for! I'll compile your questions for the interview and publish the interview q&a's on the 8th!


And don't forget. November 8th. Be there or be square!

Dunno if it's already been asked and don't particularly feel like going through every comment to find out.

But, for both and also for you, PMC, what's the planning process for this milestone anniversary been like? How taxing has it been on your normal workflow etc

For Cyprezz: why did you make PMC? Did you ever think it would become such a large community?

A more difficult question for both: are there aspects of developing that are tedious and not as fun as other parts? What’s your favorite vs least favorite thing you do on the site? :)

Cyprezz & Paril:

What drew you in to PMC when you first discovered the website and become long lasting members within the community to eventually even becoming developers of the site alongside PMC themeselves? x

And what would you say has been your best moment within the community (e.g contests, projects, socialising etc.)? x

Well then I am even more intrigued as to what caused the flare for him to make PMC then haha! x
I take it you (as PMC) are a working group that he tied together from the start then?! x

You have now officially peaked my curiosity I need details this coming November XD x
Also happy early anniversary! x

PMC
Not a working group, a single person :) ! The account was actually dormant for a while. It was used for important announcements and starter maps, contests, etc. Long story short, after being with Cyprezz for a few years and eventually marrying him, we identified the social media side of PMC was lacking so I took over the Twitter and Facebook accounts which both had also been dormant for many years. After a couple of months of being on the site daily and using this account minimally, we thought this account would be most appropriate as a sort of "community support/outreach" role. From there it grew into creating and writing PMC weekly, making banners for contests, promoting member events and contests, showing support and encouraging members through giving diamonds and commenting on their submissions, and working with members such as DinowCookie to implement the community calendar, events, etc!

Oh wow that is absolutely icredible! I genuinley didn't know any of that so now understanding the history is lovely especially since the site has became so big and I was wondering what kicked the whole thing off into being so succesful haha!! x

And that is also adorable couple goals right there bet you wasn't expecting to help run an entire Minecraft Site but that is one great achievment XD x
So congratulations on your marriage you two that is truly wonderful and keep up the amazing job of PMC! x

Cyprezz: How do you get rid of/fix website glitches? Is this website made with coding? How do you make sure the website works right? Is your account yours only? Do you have a message going with all the mods to discuss big website issues?

Both: What's it like to own a website that nearly 2 million people use? Is it a tough task?

For PMC: Does one person own the PMC account or multiple?

Question for both: How did you choose your PMC names? Also, how was the name "Planet Minecraft" chosen?

And another random thing I've wondered (less important question) - does PMC stand for "Planet MineCraft" or "Planet Minecraft Community"?

Cyprezz: When you originally made PMC all these years ago, what was your goal? Did you ever expect it to grow such a community, or was that just a side effect of making a platform to share stuff on?

Cyprezz: What was your favorite non-official community event put together by people in the community?

Cyprezz + Paril: Do you two get always along or do you occasionally fight?

Both of you must have a lot on your plate. How do you prioritize your time? do you spend Mondays fixing bugs and Tuesday working on new features, for example.

Also, I imagine there is a long list of good ideas that could be worked on and added to the site. Given enough time I'm sure you would work on all of them. How do you prioritize what gets worked on and added, and what has to be sacrificed?

Finally, who the hell keeps breaking things??????????????????
