    before i set into explaining the title i must give a backstory on myself-

    it was 2010 and my life on my minecraft server was growing dull, the wife had lost the shine she once had, the flowers were drooping and the skies greyed. i awoke one day and decided it was time.... time to leave for pastures new, pastures green, pastures wide. it was then that i reached the precipice of the hill that once was the furthest point of my horizon, and as i gazed from atop that peak it was then i saw it... snapcraft... in all its glory.

    so now that you know i was there from the beginning and you understand the dear dear place in my heart that this server holds... i will take part in the heartbreaking task of telling you a horrid thing. snapcraft is not what it once was.

    i remember walking into snapcraft for the first time, the granite walls, the cobblestone streets, the smell of fresh bread, flocks of pigeons being fed by children, the feeling of hope, of wonder, of infinite possibilites, of dreams... but now, now its streets are shrouded by the thick feeling of dread, the granite walls hidden deep under layers of grime, graffiti and propaganda.

    i remember the warm welcoming embrace i received, the open arms and hearts of an integrated community of free thinking men and women, some pilgrims like me, some that had been in snapcraft their whole lives. but that was the thing, it didnt matter who you were, or where you came from, it only mattered where you ended up and who you ended up being.

    sadly, this is not the atmosphere felt anymore, the foul stench of mistrust, of minds believing they are superior to others, the segregation of not people, but of hearts, of beliefs... a very dangerous thing.

    i have no doubt that a storm is coming, not with lightning or thunder but with fear and flame and fury... i urge all of you to hear my warning, not in hopes for you to flee, but for you to change. i have heard the cries of the leader, of the peasant, of the anarchist and despite all having different minds they all care for this server, they care for its people.

    lay down your weapons, take the venom off your tongues, rid your heart of hate and listen to these words, its not too late but the hour is late... i have had visions of snapcraft burning to ashes, the smoke of a pure, clean city taken too soon by the perversion of evil minds and cruel intent. i ask you all to not let these nightmares become reality...

    tl;dr

    Summary: Snapcraft was not what is was once, and it is going down soon.

    If you feel like I am causing problems, click on my profile and ignore me. Other than that, you’ll have to deal with these “problems” that I cause.

    I will admit, I have mini modded in the past. I just wanted to help out some people. Now I hope to push that aside because I want an opportunity to show you guys that I changed. Now, today is a new day! It sounds like you don’t know what mini modding is. Now, I’m going to say it one more time, if you have a problem with me, ignore me.
