Hello everyone, my name is Matt (MrGunzy IGN). I'm a 32 yr old male from Kentucky. I’m a huge geek, software developer, and a father of triplets. Long story short, I love playing Minecraft and would love to join a mature and properly managed server. 

Now here's the long version. :) 

 

I've been a gamer my whole life but after I had kids my gaming hobby became much less of a hobby. Then I discovered Minecraft, a game I could jump into at any time and pick up right where I left off. It was relaxing and entertaining, and I could play for 20 min or hours at a time (whenever I had time). After playing solo for about 6 months I decided I wanted to join a server, but ended up starting my own. I wanted a "mature" server for adults and managed to recruit a great group of players. I operated my server (I called it Midworld) for approx. 2 years. Midworld had a great run, but unfortunately I didn't have the time to manage it properly and keep it going. Therefore, I chose to shut it down. After this I took about a 6 month break from Minecraft mostly due to the fact I just didn't want to play solo again. I've really been itching to jump back in and share the Minecraft experience with others, hence my search for a new adult server to join. 

 

Now, a bit about me as a player...
If I had to give myself a label, it would probably be "Builder" but I’m also a survivalist and enjoy exploring. I like redstone but I do very little with it. I'm a bit of a loner meaning that I spend a lot of time focusing on my builds or exploring. This may seem odd considering I want to join a multiplayer server but I mainly just enjoy the atmosphere of a server. Even though I’m a loner, I don’t like being lonely in the huge Minecraft world if that makes sense, LOL. I like to explore other people’s creations and share my own builds. I’m social in chat and still love to participate in certain events and activities, but sometimes my schedule and lifestyle doesn’t allow me to log in at specific times.
I try to play at least every other day, sometimes more, sometimes less just depending on how busy or tired I am.

 

I look forward to the potential opportunity of joining SixtyGig and getting to know everyone!

Hello Matt and welcome, I'm an applicant too but I think that I was not 

accepted into the server (yet). I'm also a geek that likes repairing laptops (usually I just clean

the fan or replace it). Anyway, I wish you good luck with your app.

I thought I'd elaborate a bit more on my application, considering I just missed the latest app review alls I gots is time at the moment! :)

 

A bit more about me as a human...
As I mentioned above I'm a father of triplets. This is the most interesting thing about me. They are healthy 3 yr olds (almost 4) and they certainly keep me busy but they are the world to me. My wife and I had a big lifestyle change when they came along but we wouldn't change it for anything. My wife and I have been happily married for almost 9 years now. She's not into gaming but I'm thankful that she supports my gaming habits (when its obviously not neglecting the family).

 

Professionally, I develop software for a manufacturing facility. I started doing this straight out of college about 10 yrs ago. All of my apps are used internally within the company I work for. When I'm not working, spending time with the family, or playing Minecraft I'm probably geeking out in one of my other many hobbies. I'm in the first stages of building a Mame arcade as well as a full size RC Star Wars astromech droid both completely from scratch. I also play other video games. My all time favorite franchises are The Legend of Zelda and Fallout (new and old). I'm extremely excited for Fallout 4 as well as Zelda WiiU. I've also dabbled a bit into Cosplay. I have a Fallout New Vegas Veteran Ranger complete suit I made a few years ago as well as a set of Green BDUs from Battlestar Galactica. I've attended some cons in the past but nothing in the last few years. So yea...I'm a geek. :D

 

I feel like I'd be a great fit for SixtyGig for a number of reasons, the obvious one being that I meet the age requirements but I also have experience operating an "adult" server myself. That in no way means that I want to be a mod or op on this server but quite the opposite. I'm ready to fulfill the role of a regular member without the Op responsibility. As I mentioned in my first post, I shut my server down because I just didn't have the time to dedicate to be a server op. I just want to play Minecraft with a mature group of people. I'm very easy to get a long with and don't believe there is any one specific way to play Minecraft (as long as you're not causing server lag LOL).

 

Just another note about my play style I think may be important for your decision. 
I'm not too big on voice chat. For one, I absolutely hate my voice, but I often play MC on my laptop while I'm in bed. Its just something I like to do to relax me before I go to sleep. This means that my wife is usually sleeping next to me therefore I won't often be available for voice chat. However, even if I'm secluded in another room I typically don't like using ear buds because it prevents me from hearing my kids if they awake. That's not to say I won't ever voice chat but it just might be more of a rarity. Hopefully that won't be a problem for this community. I always felt like some of the players on my former server wanted me to participate on the voice calls more often so I wanted to throw that out there.

 

Let me know if you have any questions!

I can also commiserate, as I missed the previous deadline by a few days. I told them I'd bore them to death so they'd admit me to shut me the heck up, and it worked! Ymerdrys are a Danish beauty, just like Rosleen...

Thanks I hope so too!
My triplets consist of 2 girls and a boy and the girls are identical so most people who aren't around them often usually can't tell the difference. They still have their own unique differences that we see every day so I don't think they could fool us now, however I feel like they're starting to look more alike as they get older. We have several pictures of them where I have to look really close to figure out who's who!

Yes Drahmee, huge fan!

 

 

I live in Vancouver, Canada as I previously mentioned, and I worked with one of the actors who was on it. He had a second job to support himself, and it just so happens that I worked with him for about 6 years. He played Crewman Specialist Socinus, and appeared in 8 episodes.

Wow that's  cool! His character was very memorable, great actor! I forgot that most of the show was filmed in Vancouver.

 

I really enjoyed that show, I wish it could have lasted at least another season or two.
