      I'm Cyprezz the owner and lead developer of PMC, a slice of the internet that feels like home. Thanks for hanging out here.

      I like the freedom to be creative and the process of having an idea, building it from the ground up and watching it become something you can be proud of. Minecraft provides this opportunity and we're all watching as the community takes their own ideas and expresses them into the Minecraft medium.

      Like many others, gaming is the main reason I became interested in Computer Science. My first experience of utilizing a computer as a tool for creativity, not just using it, was creating custom Quake II skins, maps and developing a very simple HTML website for a gaming clan. I'd stay up late with my brother and sister and wake up early to fit more game time in before catching the bus. I still miss playing Starcraft & Asheron's Call. My senior year in high school, I took a QBasic class, programmed a Frogger clone and I was hooked. I loved telling a computer what to do, watching a program evolve into something I could not only use myself but continue to tweak and improve on over time. It's a fun and rewarding process.

      After high school, I decided to major in Computer Science which eventually became my minor as I switched to a New Media major and focused on web development. I continued gaming late into the night, even during my Masters degree. In fact, I know I logged more hours in gaming than I needed to study. I learned a lot by working at a student run, new media service on real world projects. Everything felt like it could be solved or improved on with code. Conceptualizing creative solutions keeps me up at night and gets me up in the morning. I still plan on developing a game someday, just not yet.

      After college, I did freelance web development for a number of years. While doing client work, I developed and launched a side project, gamesprays.com, a community site sharing game sprays, digital in-game graffiti art, primarily for Valve's games, Team Fortress 2, Left 4 Dead and Counter Strike. Working on that site pushed my skills in programming, interface design and online content & community management. My Gamesprays code base would eventually lay the foundation for planetminecraft.com.

      I started playing Minecraft in 2010 and like so many others, lost a grasp on space and time. Hours flew by and everything was made, or would soon be made, of blocks. There was and still is nothing quite like Minecraft. Besides the fact that the game itself provides total freedom of creativity, almost everything about the game could be modified from the skins to the code base. The idea to support the community in sharing their creations and custom game content was a instant click. I launched planetminecraft.com on November 8th, 2010 with only a project section, posted my own projects and shared the launch on reddit.com/r/minecraft. As more and more members began sharing their own projects, the site took on a life of it's own and grew with the explosive popularity of Minecraft. It's amazing to watch the game evolve and be a part of the community.

      Today, I can look back and feel humbled while still looking forward to the growing possibilities of the game and the evolution of PMC.

      my system error contest is halfway through its runtime and the tropical fish contest is nearly done! to anybody who likes fun unique idea contests like the tropical fish contest, the system error contest is a very fun one to do, The idea is to make a skin using inverted colors, and with a technology theme. Right now there's only 1 participant and it's a shame because I know tons of people love the idea.

        A tiny update prompted a test in the form of the very post you're reading right now. Using tab to indent is now a thing on wall posts, submissions, forum posts, comments, pms... tickets... how many systems to post does this site have??!

      Do you have an iPhone or other iOS Device? Your mobile menus should work again! If you own an iOS device, please test the site as the image below was captured using an online emulator. Appreciate it.

      After the recent UI updates, the mobile usability for everyone should be better. Feel free to comment or open a ticket if you notice any bugs including functional problems or visual quirks. Thanks

      Added "Customized Feed" filter to our personal site feeds. As the name suggests, you have more control over this filter to get just what you want.
