With VikkCraft now fully integrated into ArkhamNetwork, I feel like now is the right time to do this. These forums have fallen very inactive since the merge, understandably, and will no doubt be going down very soon. I wanted to take the opportunity to thank this community for everything it’s given to me over the past 2.5 years, write a few thanks, and a brief description of my experience.

Having been here for the majority of the server’s life, I have had the chance to see it grow, progress, overcome various issues, to ultimately develop into an established server for Vikkstar to play on, and also for our own VikkCraft community to play their favourite gamemodes and chat with other members of the community.

For those of you who don’t really know me well, I started off here in September of 2013 as a regular player, I was a member of the VikkCraft Build team from around August 2014 to November later that year. I then became “Head Builder” from November 2014 to January 2015. I became a Helper in Feburary, Moderator in April, and Admin in October (ish). I’ve truly seen every side of the server, and experienced almost every single role. Throughout my time here, I’ve tried to positively impact as many other players as I can, which is something I am (perhaps sadly) very proud of. Whether this be through generally being as helpful as possible, to cleaning up over 800 hackers, and writing almost 3000 forum posts. I have honestly loved every moment here, and I’m so thankful to have been given the opportunity to meet (and in some cases become good friends with) so many nice people.

So err, a few personal thanks, I’ll try keep it short (in chronological order):

@Andrew @DerpyBadger
I met these two fine gentlemen back in January 2014. Honestly, it doesn't feel like it was that long ago, but we’ve all for sure changed a lot in that time. There’s no way I’d still be here at VikkCraft if it wasn't for them. Honestly, if you want a quality...
I'm saving my farewell post until these forums go down, so let's just try to alleviate some of the initial confusion.

Please refer to the other merge posts for additional details.

Hey guys,

I've never been one for long posts, so i'll keep it relatively short.

First off, I'd like to thank everyone for supporting the server over the past 2 and a half years. After being approached to help set up VikkCraft in August 2013, I had no idea how far it would go or how long I'd stick with it. At the time we'd reach tens of players at peak times, and the server would be completely empty at night. It's amazing to see how much we've grown. I'd also like to thank Vikk for all he's done for the server. He's been great to work with, and puts so much effort in to everything he does. I believe we opened the server as he hit 200k YouTube subs (I could be wrong on that), and he's now at over 2 million subs on 2 channels, huge respect for him.

Our experience with developers has been interesting to say the least. I won't go in to detail on here, but for the most part, they've been great to work with and have brought so much to the server.

The main reason I've stuck with VikkCraft for such a long time is the community. I've met so many great people, and am still friends with people I met on the server in 2013. Hopefully I'll still see some of you over at Arkham. I'm sad to see the server go after such a long time, and my role at Arkham will not be anything like what i'm used to on VikkCraft, so I'll see how it goes and try and make the best of it.

Once again, a huge thanks to everyone for flying VikkCraft!
