Since my last blog post, I've been playing on JR a lot more, that's good. I was even able to attend the staff meeting, so I could catch up on some of the new info. Since Minecon, I haven't been able to play on JR much since there are tests at school... I'm revising like mad for them.
December is a really hectic month right now (timetable below), so I probably won't be on much. Yet I can guarantee that after the 27th, you'll see more of me.
I've been working on a new YouTube channel, yet I won't be posting anything until the 27th. Please feel free to subscribe, I can guarantee quality content, since I'm (not really) OCD about that kind of stuff. I'm hoping to get a Blue Yeti microphone, so the sound quality will be awesome.
The latest and greatest system at losing weight! If you're not aware what a spy crab is, it's an animation glitch from Team Fortress for the Spy class, caused when the player plays as Spy, opens the disguise kit, crouches, and looks straight up at the sky, and walks around. The result makes the spy look like a crab. Check it out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3dyQlZziHnw. So, me, being the great and powerful Iggy, decided; "How about I try this at school?" And so I did. I spy crabbed from class to classes whenever I could. I consider it exercise because it hurts after a while, like real exercise! Well, as it turns out, the next day when I woke up, my legs were still hurting.
LESSON OF THE DAY: Don't be me!
Welcome to all of you 1 people who are reading this!
THE INDIE GAME REVIEWS(By Chris)
This is my new blog. Every week (Or whenever I catch the time), I will play an indie game and try to film. It might not be very regular, what with all of my schoolwork and whatnot, but I will try. Anyway, you can post suggestions for games to play in the comment section! Remember! No major game productions!
Thanks for reading!
So I introduced ig to Planetside 2, and we went out and got crazy. Yup. We took it upon ourselves to take helicopters... Tanks... Basically anything we could both drive and started driving into battles... Maybe I'd take out one enemy and than crash the copter/ditch the tank.
The best thing we did was when I got the wrong copter and picked the one ment for 12 people... Let's just say I has trouble flying it. I landed to pick up ig and 4 other people and as I took off I informed them of my lack of experience with this particular aircraft which got me the result of 'oh gosh!' and this thing was like flying a beached whale. Was slow as hell, didn't turn for crap so as I flew us into battle I took heavy fire. Luckly this thing could sustain a lot of damage, but it still rocked the copter so I attempted to land while shake and as I got to ground I was rocked hard enough to flip and effectly crash the copter. So ig and I got four wheelers and charged into battle and got destroyed again. Yeah... That happened..
I posted Trinitology on a few different sites, all the links are down below. I added -Majestikmooss, -K2trf, -Flaw_22, and a few of my friends with cracked accounts here in india.
On PMC I got 6 downloads in the first 5 minutes, which is pretty awesome So far about one third of my views are downloads. You guys can check it out (I fixed and added some things) on some of these sites:
http://www.planetminecraft.com/project/trinitology-a-tnt-custom-map/ (please go and give it a diamond to make it more popular! you can also subscirbe to my works there)4
Heres the final version for mean and lazy people who dont want to go on PMC:
well i am sure every one is having the big lag that i am having and i hate the new mojang update 1.4.4 the new one and if you read the update mojang was supposed to take care of this lag leave a comment or follow if ether you don't like the update or hate the lag or both.
I've been building my PVP arena, The Temple for a loong while right now (Well I've been really lazy so yeah) and I want to share some of my ideas.
The arena is in the creative world at the moment, as well.
So here's how the battle goes:
Each player will get an enchanted Iron Sword and a full set of Diamond Armor. The enchantments are pretty much random, so luck has a pretty big role in the game. However, the player will also get an enchanted Bow with 20 arrows as well as two Steaks, a potion of Healing and two Cobwebs which can be used to slow the player down if placed "perfectly". But that's not all: the both players will get their own Pig and a Carrot on a Stick. It'll be hopefully pretty funny to see two players with enchanted diamond armor riding Pigs and fighting each other. There will be lots of soul sand in the arena as well.
Opinions? Any ideas?
Guys, I really need you people to test out this map before I put it on planet minecraft, since I dont want it up with problems and everything. Its a map about TNT, so most of you should love it, and you get to blow up monsters, huge robots, and make tnt cannons!
My goal is to get it onto the Yogscast, so if you could all help out, Id be eternally greatful

Also, Ill be releasing a version of the texture pack made for casual survival soon.
So I recently learned that there was a newly-added age limit to the new staff, which I find pretty useless. I know there was a topic somewhere to dicuss it, but I can't find it ... Anyways, I know Joe_JRN, Zolacolor, and a bunch of others proved that age didn't show how mature you were. I find that instead of this useless method, staff should get to know people, and come ask them to be staff like in the old days, instead of just anyone asking to be helper after 2 months of playing on Jr.
For example, many admins know me, and usually think Im 16 or 17 by the way I act, speak and look. And I'm turning 15 in a week. But that didnt stop me from spending 10 months on Jr, working to keep it a happy place when the staff wasnt there, like breaking up arguments and fights, helping with greifs and giving people help when they were having trouble registering. I activated my citizen+ thinking I could apply, but I was deceived when I heard about this. So all I'm asking for is for you guys to rethink and reconsider this rule, so that Jr could be a fair place.
By the way, what does citizen + give you that normal citizen doesnt have??
you know mushroom biomes are rare right, image you just found one exploring and you get excited because its like the find of a life you start like screaming and because your screaming right you cant here the faint put familer sound of a soon to be crater maker ssssssssssssssssss so its right behind you then game over score &E0 or something re-spawn or title screen so there your find good bye
thanks for reading bye
Well I'll start off like this,
Minecraft is a different kind of game from the common ones. Games we play like COD or Halo, when you stop playing, you most of the time stop thinking about it as well. But, with minecraft, even when you stop, it's hard to stop thinking about it, especially if your playing on servers.
So, i'm going to take a break from minecraft. I don't want to get a problem with this contradicting with my education and outside life, which basically means I don't want this minecraft stuff stuck in the bottom of my head right now. This has nothing against JR in particular. I am being completely general. I hope you guys can understand that you won't be seeing me really minecraft wise.
With that being said, I am going to dedicate my time on JR by using the forums, talking to staff about other things and situations relating to JR, and would later like to join Peter, Flaw, and Chris in monitoring posts/topics. I may still livestream, just maybe other games than minecraft.
As for the events team, I will still discuss any contests we have in mind, and will try to think of other events for JR outside of minecraft.
Lastly, I would like to thank you for reading this, and hopefully, understanding my plan. I still love JR all around, no matter where I go
So this morning I had been mulling over what I was going to post in my blog since I was in a blogging mood. I had this rant about this and that and all these things. That has changed. I got home and decided on going for a bike ride, being the nice day it was, rode about, down the road... good 5 miles or so and I get back from that, took a shower, got out feeling great came down and opened my lap top and decided to play Borderlands 2 (as I am addicted to that game) and I turn on my iPod and notice that I had a missed call from Jamie so I open it and notice it had all the staff members. I was confused and I knew i couldn't attend as I had to go out to the other building on our property (parents were watching football game there and wanted me to come and watch with them.) So I go out there *note it has internet just really bad internet* and I look again and scroll through and notice what people were saying.
You should know what I read.
It was like a hit to the gut... I just sat there, dumbfounded, I couldn't believe what I had just read.
At this point I just felt.. shocked thinking they were kidding or it was temporary. No it.. is for good. So now... well I know what is needed of me.
I realize I've continuously said I was going to get back into Minecraft and I've never done it. But I realize the admins and founders will need every ounce of help they can get and that's a responsibility I have to get as a moderator. So I'm sorry for my lack of being on but expect to see me more often helping out Barbermiss, Rstoy, Flaw, Peter, K3v and all the others. Please try and refer to Helpers first, than Moderators and Admins final. We're all here for a reason. Everything that applied when Jamie was here will still apply so please continue following them!
Remember! Have fun!
P.s.- Remember, try not to put too much pressure on the admins! We want to keep them happy and unstressed as possible!
Here are the links to the downloads!!!
Please tell me if there are bugs or if something is too difficult or whatever!

My custom map is finished, so right now all I'm doing is adding textures to the texture pack of the map. I need some bug testers and stuff though, so If you guys could help, that would be awesome
Im also gonna release a version of the texture pack for normal survival minecraft.
Ill post the link to everything in my next post!
Last time I saw npcs walking around they all just walk right into my TNT trap that works only at night and some also just decided to go and fall in a little hole that goes right into my sewers looks like they wont be coming out anytime soon or ever =b idiots
Have you ever been to a mushroom island biome? if you have then you would most likely want to live there. But you have an awesome house with all of your stuff there and you cant go back because then you will not find the way back. so if you want to live in a mushroom biome then just make an enchantment table and hopefully you will get a silk touch enchantment (with book shelfs of course) and then just mine up some mycielum grass and some shrooms and find your way home. there you have ur little pice of the rarest biome.
Hey guys! Sup! Hurricane Sandy passed. I'm fine. Anyway, down to business!
In the new 1.4.2 update, many things were added! While I was bored, I decided to explore some things! And I discovered the greatest thing of all time! Wanna do it too? Here's an easy guide!!!
1) Create a new world, and make it superflat.
2) Click 'Customize' and then click 'presents'
3) Scroll down to 'Redstone Ready' and click that
4) In the top box that says all those crazy numbers, replace '24' with '46', and get rid of village
5) Create your world
6) Spawn some Flint And Steel and have fun lagging your computer to the point where it explodes.
Well, that's how I did it! I'll tell you guys what happened after I blow up my computer! You can also do this other ways, like clear out the type box and just type 46, but then the TNT falls into the void. So, have fun creating your own wacky TNT/computer blowing up worlds!
I joined JR because I loved the community, I had invited tons of friends (current count: 8 people), and I liked Minecraft. I became a Helper after my application (before the application system was set up! (I inspired the application system)), and then was promoted to Moderator. Since then, I have started playing less and less. The reasons for this where:
-JR was changing a lot, and changing plugins. I still don't know how to use HawkEye...
-I've gone into a much harder year at school. I've had to shift around my timetable, and I've found it hard to stay on JR
-Need to talk more: I became a staff member partly due to my regular chats with other staff members. I need to chat more like that, yet I've been finding that hard (nobody on mumble, hard to get into Skype calls)
-And the more you fall back, the more you have to catch up, and the harder it is to get 'back into the flow'
I'm trying to get on more, yet these things fade away. I don't want that to happen, yet it's inevitable that one day I will have to leave JR for good, probably for school (my school has very high expectations of students, and won't hesitate to kick you out, and I'm one year away from starting my IB).
I will be going to Minecon this year, and that is the decision point. Either I carry on with Minecraft, i.e. JR, or I give it up completely. Yet please remember this: I will not leave without a farewell. I won't just disappear, I'll announce my departure.
I still check the JR website on a daily basis, so contact me if needed,
