    A hard decision

    Ever since my friends invited me onto this server, I started playing on it daily, I started to learn the names of the members and staff, Learned the way that JR wants to run. I joined the server at the age of 13/14. Played on it to this very day. When I got to talking to staff often, I started wanting to help JR grown and be a better community. I would stay on all night while all the EU staff were sleeping, and take screen shots of people cursing, cheating, or griefing. (being a tattle tale) I tried everything I could to become apart of the staff. It was my dream goal to one day be wearing a red name tag in the Minecraft server under "Admin". I maybe tried too hard to become staff as I would try and beat the staff to the problem and try to fix it myself. Posted on forums to try and get activity up. I tried all I could, attended every meeting. The day came on my 16th birthday I could apply for helper. I was so happy, It took a few days for them to look over it but finally I was accepted as a Helper. I was the happiest guy alive. Then I continued to strive to work up the ranks and do my best and help the Owner, Admins, and Mods in anyway I could. When I was promoted to Grief Police at the time, was another amazing day for me, I ran around my house (literally) to get my excitement out of the way. Grief Police was later merged into Moderator, Which is where I stand. I have thought about this for many days. This might be the hardest thing I have ever had to do. There comes a point in our lives where we all must say goodbye to something, someone, or some place that we love. It's never easy. But today I must make one of those hard goodbyes, Today is the day I feel I must step down from management. There are a few reasons for this. First, my current life situation doesn't give me a whole lot of time to be active enough to help and support the server/community. Second, I joined this community for the Minecraft aspect, and as I feel the majority of the community is now past the Minecraft aspect. I feel there is not much for me to do here. Third, I don't really offer any help anymore. Everything JR as a whole needs help with from staff is either beyond my abilities or in games that I do not own or play. I will never forget this amazing time I have had here, nor will I ever leave the community. This will always be my home, staying up late talking to members and staff. Getting to know such amazing people. Everyone here has had a place in my heart since I got to know them. All the staff were so helpful and caring. I have never had bad times being here. I have always had people to rely on and count on to pick me up when I'm feeling down. I will always recommended this place to anyone as it is nothing but inspiration. So many amazing unique people. I wish I coulda done more for the server but I did what I was capable of doing. This my last post as staff at JR. I will always remember and love this place. I hope one day I will be able to bring my daughter to come play here. ❤️ People that I want to thank specifically: Serena, Djexecute, Noni, JuggaGirl, Chris, harsol, kickyabutt24, Barbermiss, Mrcoconut2012, AnioNovus, p4ck3ts3nd3r, Risen Havoc, UploadGFX, Daisuke, Lightning Potatoe People that really made an impact on me: Sophie and Frosty. I am sorry if I forget anyone, there were a lot of people so many years ago that were so fun to talk to and play with. Most importantly thank you Jamie for making this a thing and keeping it going even in rough times. I wish I coulda done more to support financially. But thank you for making this all possible I will not forget you.

  5. Ravek

    Names

    Thats always the best, when you hear a parent say their full name you know they are in trouble.
  6. Ravek

    Names

    Thats what I was thinking cause she has a daughter already named madison, but call her madi for short . Cause parents also like to use their full name when in trouble or something you know.

    Names

    So if you read my other topic, "Life changing event" I am having a baby, and it is in fact going to be a girl. So my question is what name would you give your daughter? We were thinking Isabella or Bella!

  10. Thats the dream, I guess a pool would be nice too
  11. Oh, Well guess I coulda looked up what they are called.
  12. No one brought up star wars?
  13. Fastest Internet possible, no neighbors, but close enough to where I can go get fast food.
  14. I mean I started playing MW2 on PC a little bit ago, I was into the Multiplayer not so much the zombies of the CODs. but other than that I dont really go back and play games. I guess the other game I go back and play is LoL.
  15. Thank you any and all support/advice does help.
  16. Trying to talk to her but everytime I do try to bring up anything she gets upset and mad at me.
  17. Yes under a coral reef. Not sure exactly how its all going to work out but im just going with the flow.
  18. So has a select few of you know of my situation. I planned on making this post later this month. But honestly its all my friends and I kinda talk about cause I just always need so much help and advice. Most of you will be too young to give help really cause hopefully you wont be in my situation until your older and more stable and ready to handle it (being financial). Begging of this year (2018) I managed to grab myself a girlfriend from work. We spent as much time as we could together when we weren't working. We had a good time and loved being together. We are both the same age as I am 1 month older then her. She has had more relationships and stuff before me and I knew all this before I asked her out. So I was ok with it. the main thing is, She has a 3 year old daughter. At first it was a challenge getting her kid to like me and be comfortable with me. after week and week of being with the kid and her she finally realized im not scary and we got along. Being able to play "do" makeup together and our hair and what not. Around the time of late April early May she came to me with big and important news. I didn't exactly know what to expect. she sat me down. And as she was very worried of my reaction she then told me that she has been pregnant since early March. At first I didn't know what to say, feel, or respond. I just wanted everyone to be happy. But as I have had more time to think of it I am excited to have a little Carter (my name) or Ravek JR growing up to take my shoes. To this day I am mostly just worried as I want the best for my child. She is due early January and I will not find out the gender until the 22nd of this month. which is why I wanted to wait so long to make this. But me and the mother are not having the best of relations right now which is making things even harder for me. As I don't want my child to grow up with split parents or just 1 parent for that matter. I currently don't have a job either, so money is weighing heavily on my back right now, as well as time. I'm trying my best to keep the mother happy so we can stay together, but again things are going downhill faster then I can catch up with, and its not looking good honestly. To top it all off my IRL friends aren't really supporting me like they said they would and I thought they would. I have had 2 groups of friends growing up. 1 that went to my school and I talked to most of the time played games with. The other I knew since I was young, played sports with ect. The 2nd group are all in school as I am not, and we just have drifted I feel too far apart to really be special to each other anymore honestly. My first friend group that I went to school with are just busy and are getting other friends and we don't even talk weekly anymore. I feel alone at this point and the biggest reason I am making this post is that JR is my last line of support that I don't want to lose and I want to share my life with you guys as I have been here for 6+ years. The staff the members have honestly made this place make me feel at home and I don't want to lose that feeling, I would love to one day have my kid grow up and play here and take my shoes as I grow old. I would love any advice anyone has to offer. But most importantly I would love support as I really just feel alone in this world. I hope no one will judge me either or think of me differently cause of this. Thank you for listening. I just want to give a quick thank you to p4ck, Jamie, Frosty, and chris for being supportive and helping me aswell really does mean more then you think and helps.
  19. I did a survival map of floating islands was so much fun, that would be really cool. I personally just work on whatever I think I can build.
  20. Used to be a manager at the Fast food chain Burger King but currently looking for employment now. Might be a pizza deliver boy, or a car washer at a car dealership.
