    Hey everyone :)

    I saw that @trkey did an AMA around this time last year, and I thought it would be fun to do one myself.

    Feel free to ask me anything about myself or OPBlocks, and I'll answer it.

    I'm probably going to let questions pile up over the next day or so, and then answer them all in one massive reply (skipping any duplicate questions).

    Thanks,
    Nick

    When Mojang first implemented the name change feature, I stayed up all night waiting for it to be added. I was lucky enough to get a couple of cool usernames, but I decided on using Amazing as my main account.

    nu :(

    I was originally given an Admin position on the server on OPBlocks V2, at that time I really didn't have much of a role other than in-game management & some forums stuff.

    Then I resigned, and Tuxx / Coolkish made OPBlocks V3. Then I was hired earlier this year to begin managing the server and I made OPBlocks V4.

    Then @loganb1max and I made OPBlocks V5 :)
    Basically I handle everything on the server other than plugin development, because I'm not a developer.

    nu :eek:

    1. The first server I ever created was back in 2012, and I've been creating/owning/managing servers ever since.
    2. I haven't really played minecraft for fun over the last year or so, but I still love the game.
    3. There's a parkour in spawn? :eek:
    4. Mochi & Christina both do a fantastic job :)
    5. 6.32
    When someone proves to me that it's broken :p

    I love my job. Genuinely this is the best job I could've asked for. I get to work alongside friends, meet a ton of new people every day, and continue pursuing something that I'm good at.

    1. I started playing minecraft in the summer of 2012.
    2. Well, seeing as MrCrainer's series is going to be very long, I want to continuously push out big content updates every 1-2 weeks to keep everyone happy :)
    3. I am an only child.
    4. Already do :p
    5. Honestly, I have no clue. I think i just found it on a website a couple years ago and stuck with it.
    6. I had videos on my channel a while ago from an old server I used to play on, but they're kind of cringey so I unlisted them :eek:
    7. Potato
    Right now I have 7 minecraft accounts. Amazing, What, Computer, Then, Froze, Nicholas and Funny.
    I play PUBG & GTA V a lot.

    Does the amount of money that you earn from managing servers cover your living expenses?

    the fortune 200 was jh 20 but still i was going to do with the fortune 200 without autosell but i thought that with the 100 it shows that with 2x less fortune your inv fills up like 13x faster, which I don't think 5 jh levels do
