Last Saturday’s fishing event brought in quite the crowd
Welcome to The MeepTimes, the twice-monthly update to keep the community in the loop with what’s new, behind the scenes, and in the works.
Mystery Saturday Event
As with last week, @CluelessKlutz will host an event this Saturday afternoon. At the moment, however, the nature of the event is unknown. Log on tomorrow and check it out.
Bugs allowing /sethome and accessing enderchests have been fixed.
In this section, the community will get a chance to participate in a quick contest in each MeepTimes! There will be a 25k prize (from the MeepTimes writers) for one lucky winner, who will be chosen by random number generator. To be entered, just reply to the thread with an answer! Winner will be paid with the release of the next MeepTimes.
The question for this issue is: What is your favorite food or beverage to eat or drink on a cold day?
The winner to last week’s Meeptimes question was @SpongeyStar, whose favorite candy is chocolate!

@CaliWahine attending to business around her newly created town, Menegroth
You joined Meep quite recently. What have been your favorite parts of the server so far?
My favorite part of the server is the community aspect. We’re all interdependent and need each other to succeed, to survive, but there’s also an underlying competition. I love both.
You just created your town, Menegroth. What made you want to make one and how’s that going so far?
Yes! The town is going fantastic so far. It’s only been 20 hours and we’re already so successful! I was part of another town and just felt like I had so many better ideas and ways to make the town successful, but couldn’t implement them. I think being able to govern and work together to make it grow is a really unique experience.
What’s been the biggest challenge yet?
Balancing the money with how fast we are growing. We got lucky and had some investors that made it possible for us to do it so soon, but you really have to watch how much you expand and how quickly. Of course you want to claim as much land and expand, but you also don’t want to go bankrupt and be stressed out trying to sell land.
Anything else you’d like to add about Meep?
Nah, I think we covered a lot. I just want to see the server live. I’m meeting new people everyday (Like @Synergizer and I are now friends) and I just want things to keep looking up.
What are some of your hobbies away from the computer?
I really love tabletop RPGs. My bf and I have a whole stack of them under our coffee table and sometimes those are more fun than computer games. I also volunteer at our local Humane Society and take care of puppers when I get the chance. Those would be my top two hobbies outside of the net.
Do you mean stuff like D&D?
Um actually I prefer Pathfinder, but you can actually get boardgames that guide you through those types of scenarios without you fully having to create everything yourself. Some examples are Dominion, Legends of Andor, stuff like that.
I meant Descent, but we have Dominion too. Descent took like 2 hours for first-time setup, lol. They’re like the best RPG boardgames imo.
You also mentioned that you volunteer at a dog shelter. How did you get into that? How’s that like?
Well, I volunteer in my spare time. I mainly walk and do enrichment with adoption dogs, but just recently got cleared to work with dogs that are being held for other reasons. They’re “non-adoptable” dogs. I love it
It’s nice to dump everything else out of your brain and just focus on what you’re doing with that animal at the time, and it’s good exercise.
You prefer dogs to cats then?
Um yes lol I don’t understand cats. Anything that doesn’t like water I don’t understand lol.
Do you like swimming then?
Yeah I grew up swimming, played water polo in high school, and used to live on an island so swimming is part of me.
Mettekes, wandering onto the scene: Do you still have Mr. Upside Down Sheep? Did you kill it?
Mett, yeah, I killed him sorry, the town was expanding.
