Exactly one year ago today, October 12, 2016 (Philippine time), I first joined Maestrea. I would like to thank everyone who I met, those who patiently helped me with learning about this server and its plugins, and answering my questions regarding issues/bugs. I really appreciate it and is willing to reciprocate them if I can. I first found out about Maestrea when I was searching for other towny servers in the internet, and this was due to me getting banned in a previous towny server for stealing a gold block in the complete wild (apparently you cannot even do that outside 64 blocks). My friend also got banned there due to the owner having a bad mood, and his question pissed him off even more for some reason. When I first logged onto Maestrea, I found out that I was missing out for the past few months playing in that other server. Maestrea has more players online, more towns, and more staff members who are actually accommodating and professional, to my surprise. I also found the community to be something very unique, helpful, supportive and family-like. I also really liked how server staff decided on a middle ground between those who want to grief/raid and those who want their towns protected. Therefore I decided to settle down in this server, because I don't think I would find another Minecraft server like this anytime soon. Thank you for giving me an adventurous experience in Maestrea so far, 1 year and not going to stop!
