    I have been on this server for 5+ years now and I always love to hear what people love about ECC, best memories, favorite players etc.

    So let's do this! Below I want to hear about your experiences from start to now on ECC, who was your first mayor? When did you get your first star tool? How that first crisp million felt? Anything!

    Well.. I've had one heck of an ECC experience.

    I started off on 26th July 2014 (Same day as @Ladyvamptress , we logged in a couple hours in between us!). I looked around saw a bustling chat, and with being new to minecraft, I stayed on. I voted and looked around for a town, and my first town was Pandacapitol. I bought my first house off of @IceGuardian98 and I was happy! Then a few months down the line, I became co-mayor of the nation (Panda Nation) and helped @TheN00BISHPanda remodel it. I then met @Fon_ who was a really cool guy and he bought me many a feature for free, which I appreciate <3 And then around that time, I started talking to @Ladyvamptress and we've become besties (2020 Meet-up gurl!) and yeah, I went from a nubby resident to a nubby Ecoleader!

    I got my 1st 1mil+ from lotto when I 101 ticket'd @TimmyChoi's money, I bought ecoleader with that! I then got I think (and please don't hurt meh if I'm wrong Hicca! xD) 2.5-5mil from @Hiccabup which I got a few towns with and that literally, like I had to go downstairs and take a breather xD Oh boy I was a easily excitable 15 year old xD

    ECC has been my escape for 4 years (In 7 days) and I'm grateful for all the people who have been my friends!

    (I won't mass tag anyone, I'll wait until I get a 4 year trophy and do a cheesy thread <3)

    Well well well.... where do I begin!

    I joined May of 2016 (Forums in June), and started playing. I invited my brother @zero_0xb17491937 shortly after I started to come and play, and here we are now!
    The very first town I joined was MountainBay, lead by @strongpelt and co-mayored by @MollyZhu :) Molly was the one who taught me all about ECC!

    Fast forwarding on, I took a brief hiatus before coming back. This time around, I met wonderful friends such as @dgam02, @Dare2Dream, @LanRooks, @Kick_Me_1235, @zr2002, and many more...
    In September of 2017, I fell in love with the man @matrix_rep himself and we've been dating ever since! (Cringe, I know, sorry!)
    I joined the staff team in September as well, before resigning in January. It has been a fun ride, and its interesting to come back and see where ECC is now. Hopefully there will one day be more players on main, I have a lot more build projects that I want to finish!

    Let’s see here, it started almost 5 years ago when my best friend for life, @oreo1227 invited me to this Economy server. I think it was called ECC (lol). He let me into his town of Sweden and quickly became friends with his co-mayor @TheHolyStick22 .

    I left Sweden a few weeks later when I created my Mayor town of Ironwood (where I am still stationed today) and the Ironwood Head Museum of like 20 heads.

    I then quit ECC for about a year later when I was asked to join both the build and staff teams for the largest MLP Minecraft server (It is shut down now :( )

    Fast forward to early 2016ish when I rejoined ECC with my new found skills of building. This is the time when I really started branching out in the community more and making new friends (I’ll give a SO later to them :) ) and obtained a direction for ECC. This is when the idea of the Cyan Empire started to unfold.

    In the quest to create this “Cyan Empire,” I claimed the town of Coco from my old friend @y0landi , only to discover all the lored items he used to collect were still there. This gave birth to the next chapter of my ECC career: The Coco Head Museum and The Museum of ECC.

    Eventually, the Coco Museum transitioned to the current ECCMuseum. Long story short, it eventually obtained close to 400 different player heads, almost every lored item of ECC, and became a household name across the server with many, many people happily supporting it.

    And now, a few shout outs to the friends I made thus far:
    @oreo1227 - Thank you for being my best friend for over 12 years and recommending this amazing server to me

    @TheHolyStick22 and @zardgyer - Thank you for helping me during my early days of being a builder by teaching me the ins and outs of the server and giving me many items to get started

    @Iamjustapony - not only the greatest museum partner I can ever ask for, but the greatest housemate too

    @Fluttershyyaaay @ZillahTheUnicorn @princesswind - The Ponydale Trio! Thank you for the long talks we had!

    @Ozzyblack21 - Thank you for always being my friend and giving me support whenever I needed it

    @Imabankthing - Thank you for all the millions of dollars of items you gave me for the Museum

    @matrix_rep - Thank you for /warp debt, the only casino on the server that I have not lost any money at yet (Seriously! I did over 20 bets there and haven’t lost yet)

    @VelvetRemedy - Thank you for being the greatest brother ever! Sorry for getting u banned lol

    @zero_0xb17491937 - Thank you for support

    @cheese_ball_3 - thank you for annoying ozzy so I didn’t need to

    Awesome idea for a thread, @Darth_Hydraxis!

    I started playing ECC when I was like in 8th grade (I think) in like September 2012. I spent my time as a Builder/Resident in Funkytown, owned by @thenfunk. After I had enough to become mayor, my irl bestfriend @milch973 started playing. We traveled outward from spawn, and found a beautiful tiny island, which I named Allemange (a misspelling of Allemagne, lol). I built a tiny house there, and had a very successful town (probably about 50 active members. At this point my other irl friends joined, ellrus, rambo496, and a few others, like jwcobra. Anyways, from there I have just expanded my empire. Never owned a startool, and have lost money on every town that I have bought and sold :p

    Edit: :p missed the part where I quit ECC from 2013-2018 minus a brief stint in 2015 :p

    Feeling nostalgic, why the hell not.

    I joined in August of 2014, believe I was 12 at the time, I remember rushing to get online after my first day of middle school for whatever reason. I joined with my brother @NR2502 (rest in perma) who helped me to rank up to resident. We moved into @monkeyBUTT244 's builder town and went from there. I also for some reason remember going to @konan200x (at least i think it was you) because I wanted my brother banned (wish granted I guess??). Thanks for putting up with my shit anyway konan xD. I gave up on ecc soon and was rarely logging on, the thing that saved me was logging on one day and finding I had won 570k with 1 ticket in lotto (damn those were the days, sorry for taking your money @matrix_rep ;) ).

    I soon progressed to mayor President and tycoon. I remember hanging out with @Bad_Boy1_3 and @Raccooy a lot at the time. I had been obsessed with sg at the time (though holy shit I was trash and still am) and played with them a whole lot. I believe when bad_boy quit he gave me his eff7 pick and while I was sad to see him leave... holy shit I had a star tool. Which I soon lost to a scam (COUGH @dgam02 COUGH COUGH jk ly <2). But thanks to the amazing staff team (mostly @Dewsy92 and special thanks to @thezombiemuffin) I was able to retrieve it even with the complete lack of evidence I managed to gather. I mean seriously I was a complete moron. I lost my eff 7 probably about 5-10 times over the years I swear, from having it despawn after accidentally throwing it on the floor to selling it for lotto money and immediately losing it, and stupid glitches (@dgam02 you really hate my star tools Jesus christ).

    I then remember getting to know @lapkingkn through my gambling addiction on ecc (and actually NR now that I think about it... I think he bought a spot at his casino and I ended up going over his head and taking over. woops). Anyway we became good friends and eventually became sole owner of his casino, sadly main and gambling started to die around that time.

    Through @Raccooy 's clan I met some of my better friends that I've gotten to know over the past few years. I got to know one of my best friends from ecc (and well one of my best friends just in general) @GeorgiaMC. She invited me to her clan with @GMaxx @dgam02 @DiamondDesire and some others, but it ultimately became what's known as TheFam. Members in this group changed from time to time but ultimately became what it is because of my time on staff.

    I decided to apply for staff in January of 2016 and began to quickly rise through the ranks making friends along the way. Not going to bother tagging all of them besides a few who have made a big impact... there are so many staff members I got to know well and became friends with... I'm sure I'd forget to list a few and it would just be a waste of time - you know who you are :p. I got to know @ClarinetPhoenix through my stupidness on staff (you have no idea how many dumb mistakes I've had to cover up on staff oml. Literally on my first day I banned a builder who simply messaged me a url and I mistook it for an IP address *facedesk*). I remember on inviting @SimsElemental and @maroiogog to TheFam after getting to know them on staff, and bringing @Enougher in after inviting @maroiogog. After becoming GA I soon became close with @Imaginex @MadMonster_ and @314. Staff was honestly one of the best experience I've had, I believe it's helped me to grow as a person and I am who I am now thanks to staff and all the amazing people I've gotten to know.

    Last summer I met a few of my best friends @Ellie27 and @LanRooks through staff (well I met Ellie after dgam invited her to TheFam). Also began to talk to and get to know @matrix_rep and @PlatinumPurple. @dgam02 and I have become extremely close over the years and I literally love him as a brother at this point <2. And most recently have gotten to know @CemCrazy (join TheFam already smh) and can happily say we're currently dating <3.

    Timeline is probably off and it's 3am, didn't have anything better to do so xD. I may have mixed up a few things here and there just to help it flow a bit more smoothly but again it's 3am it's probably crap. But either way, this is my story I guess :p. I'm sorry if I forgot anyone - I've gotten to know so many people it's hard for me to keep track honestly.

    I started in May 2014. Irl friend @NeonFragS_YT suggested me to join. Took around a month, but got resident after hours of begging. Got banned by @Stolio because he is not cool. First town I joined was Chestoa, owned by @Ayriia . First market plot I got located at Cybertron, owned by @AdmiralD . First friend was @IcePvPz , met in SG (damn those days we had 6 or 8 sg arenas). After several months I got to President, giving me my first town Heavenland (sold my Mayor town). Then I left ECC and rejoined in 2017.

    I joined back in June of 2013 and had no idea what a Minecraft server was, did not know any of the basic tutorials like how to farm or mine properly. In all terms I was a complete and total noob with no idea what to do.

    After becoming some what familiar with how to mine I remember taking about 13 Iron picks into the mining world and going to town selling every ore and block I picked up, and then I saw it my first Diamond Vein. I can remember the excitement as I made my first Diamond pick and a sword (didn't know mobs wouldn't spawn).

    Skip ahead a few days of endless mining with no idea that towns were a thing! so cute and innocent. That's when I met @kirby1699 and was offered a spot in his town. I quickly snatched up two adjoining 15x15 plots and made a very tall house. With help from the wiki and YouTube I made myself a little potato farm and had some rich tycoon make me a cooking pot. Who remembers cooking pots and the massive lag they brought ahhhh those were the days.

    A few days after joining I skyrocketed through the mining world, I believe I stayed on for almost 25 hours straight and bought mayor, placed my town next to my current town and got busy land forming and selling plots. Soon after I discovered how profitable it was to farm and bought the town Germany! Which with the old wheat prices was highly profitable, I met @clou44 And @rollypolly and I believe @KMaxwell as well as @OnSceneReporter and a few other old mods and old friends who sadly most of don't play anymore :(.

    Not long after I progressed as a President and formed the DragonSithNation with Eledan. I bought every town in the surrounding area and then started working for @OmniCrafter. Also around this time I met @lapkingkn, @Ladyvamptress and a few others who are sadly now banned or inactive from around that time.

    Tycoon came quick and then Ecoleader shortly after and I began my eff7 and Melon sword journey buying over 20mill In donation features being a broke high school grad.

    Here we are today with skyblock! I am having so much fun and meeting new faces everyday.

    I joined this server in late 2016 when my friend/current house mate/guitar-player-to-my-bass, @Jdawger was creating this Minecraft project called the Ironwood Head Museum in this server called ECC. I was curious on what it was and decided to check the server out. One thing led to another and I liked what I saw. We later expanded to be the Coco Museum in mid-late 2017. That lasted for a few months until we moved.

    We did change our name and location to the ECCMuseum (which I technically own, not Jdawg. Sorry not sorry :) ) and we flourished. Later, Jdawg's brother (and our Drummer), @VelvetRemedy got unbanned and helped us with some of the build-like aspects.

    Currently, I am helping with the ECCMuseum when I can, including using my president town for an expansion for the heads and a potential history of the ECC network! And in the future, I will be happy to return Finally and help@Jdawger and @VelvetRemedy with our biggest project yet: The Cyan Empire Capitol!

    Keep the posts related to the topic and user friendly, I don't want to see any flaming, harassing, bullying comments or the post will be closed.

    Trying to have a nice reflective process here to share experiences not for users to argue with each other etc.
