The Second Hornemans Dinnerparty
In celebration of Meepcraft’s sixth anniversary, a second dinnerparty was hosted by @Fuzzlr and @Cooleysworld. Fireworks lit the sky, diamonds dropped from the ceiling, and many courses of delicious . . . boats . . . were served! See images from the party here.
Fuzzlr Convention Part 2
What began as fun and games going down the waterslide at /warp waterpark became the biggest dropparty of the year so far! While @Fuzzlr was dropped dozens of gold ingots, diamonds, and other goodies, @Epixaid and @CluelessKlutz passed out Fuzzlr disguise notes to everyone in the crowd, resulting in the Second Fuzzlr Convention. See more images here!
Looking Back - 2017
2017 was quite a year! As we move on into the new year, it is often fun to look back on the previous year. Meepcraft has been fortunate enough to have a consistent and dedicated staff team, some of which have moved on, some who continue in their roles to better the server. With that in mind, here is a full list of everyone who has participated in the Meepcraft staff team in the last year! (Apologies ahead of time in case somehow anyone was missed, just message someone and you'll be added as swiftly as possible)
Storytime with the Crew - Hornemans’ Dinner Disturbance
/warp hornemans was a busy place. The 6th Anniversary of MeepCraft had encouraged @Fuzzlr and @Cooleysworld to host a dinner party, with most of the online server attending. @ImPaw looked around and saw a happy, cheerful environment; diamonds being dropped, food being served and jokes being spread. Many people were there – @Proteker, @Epixaid, @MegaStufOreo, @NinjaRoxy, @OKNEM, @CluelessKlutz, even @Kling made an appearance. It was a great time for the people of MeepCraft, and no one would slow the party down.
The party moved to /warp waterpark – players enjoyed the thrill of boating down the waterslide, then doing it all again. More items were dropped at /warp elytra – inventories upon inventories of diamond tools courtesy of Epixaid. And all of this upon the watchful eye of Hornemans – sitting quietly in the hot air balloon near /warp elytra, he radiated disgust watching players jumping up and down to collect the items. “What filth. They think they can celebrate MeepCraft’s anniversary without me? That ridiculous Fuzzlr is giving away free Nutcrackers to undeserving players! Just you wait, I’ll show them how to celebrate.”
Flying down to the jungle area beside the party, he set up an elaborate redstone mechanism – dispensers, repeaters, and water buckets. He bought his materials from vShop – the quick and easy command of /buy was easily accessible to him. At last, the machine was done. He chuckled – no one was going to see this coming. Millions of gear, lost to clear lag, just like that.
But someone was going to see it coming. Paw, who had been happily celebrating with everyone else, noticed something peculiar in chat – her goods on vShop being bought by Hornemans. Hornemans? she thought. Isn’t he banned? She decided to check with a mod.
After a quick check, @Kling, also attending the party, found where Hornemans was buying his goods from. Teleporting in, he brought Paw with him to explore the area. This can’t be good, thought Kling. Buying dispensers, repeaters, and water buckets? There’s only one thing you can make with those three items.
Paw, standing behind a tree, called Kling over. Peering out, she saw Hornemans working quickly on a machine of his devise – and Paw recognized it instantly.
“It’s a TNT cannon! We need to warn everyone!” whispered Paw, perhaps a bit too loudly, as Hornemans turned swiftly to face their location. Paw and Kling suddenly hid back behind the tree, holding their breaths. Hornemans shook his head, and went back to the machine.
“Okay, you go back to /warp elytra, I’ll catch Hornemans,” replied Kling.
“You gonna be okay? This is Hornemans we’re talking about,” expressed Paw, clearly concerned.
“I’ll be fine, mate. Go back and warn them!”
Paw hastily went back to /warp elytra to warn the others. Kling, on the other hand, slowly crept up to behind Hornemans. Drawing his sword, he held it up, preparing to swing. Hornemans, sensing something behind him, instinctively drew his sword and held it up, blocking Kling’s blow. The two stepped apart, and Hornemans smiled.
“Kling! How good it is to see you. It’s been a while, hasn’t it?”
“You’re supposed to be banned! How did you get back in here, you bloody monster?” Kling questioned.
“You were only a VIP when I saw you last, and now look at you – a SuperMod! I guess I owe you a congratulations, then.”
“What are you doing, Hornemans? What’s the machine?”
“You already know what it is, Kling. A TNT cannon. You see those players up there?” He pointed to the party.
“They’re my friends, mate.”
“Well, they’re gone now.”
And with that, Hornemans lunged towards the lever, to fire the cannon.
“NO!” shouted Kling, diving in the way of his hand, tackling him to the ground, putting him just out of reach. The two tussled on the ground, weapons out of the equation.
“You… can’t… stop… the… inevitable!” shouted Hornemans, struggling against Kling’s strength.
“We can have a good time while it lasts. And we don’t need you…” Kling raised his sword. “…to spoil it for us.”
The sword came down. Everything was in slow motion. Hornemans’ face expressed raw fear, Kling’s expressed integrity, and vengeance. Just as the sword was about to connect with flesh, another one came out and blocked the blow. Kling looked up in shock at the wielder – Cooleysworld.
“This one doesn’t deserve to be killed. He deserves worse.”
Kling relaxed. The others got the message – Paw had made it.
“I’ll take it from here, Kling. Thanks for your help in catching this criminal.”
He released Hornemans, still in fear, and handed him over to Cooleys. They walked a short distance and warped away.
Paw came running back to the clearing. “Kling!” she shouted. “Are you okay?”
“I’m fine, mate. Just fine. Come on, let’s get back to the celebrations. I heard they were dropping Nutcrackers just now..?”
They both bolted back to /warp elytra. The party was still well under way – Fuzzlr dropping Vote Keys, Epixaid dropping tools, and Viper dropping cobble.
Paw smiled. MeepCraft’s days were not over just yet.
Happy Birthday, MeepCraft! From the author - @OKNEM
Humans Of MeepCraft - Feat. @Akira Wolven
What inspired your name?
I love cats and wolves so that just had to be a part of my name. I also find puns really funny and when I renamed my account I wanted to keep that a part of it, so that’s why I chose my username.
What do you enjoy the most about the server?
The Towny world. Owning towns and meeting new players in this part of meep is extremely fun
Currently, you are a co-mayor of Mistveil. What is it like being a part of such a well-built and respected town?
It’s amazing I love being part of Mistveil! Owning the modern district is so much fun as I can build to my heart's content while providing a place for players to keep all their valuables and contribute to the town.
What kind of things do you enjoy outside of the server?
I enjoy drawing, reading, and playing archery as a sport.
What kind of things are you looking forward to both in the new year, and the sixth year of Meep?
Meeting new players, making new friends and watching the community grow even more! Any of course building more xD
Anything else you’d like to add?
I’d also like to thank all the Meepcraft staff for always helping out however they can

Terrible quality as the video itself is terrible quality, but if you can read it's founded January 7th 2012 and still it continues to be a different day every year that the anniversary of MeepCraft falls on.
