        Oh that's so nice that you see deer on your walks, they're lovely! And yesss, I agree the sounds of the birds are always really nice and comforting. I love watching them go about their days, just building their nests and eating and all the other stuff they do xD
        You can hit me with as many paragraphs as you want!! I love reading long messages (even when the 420-character limit gets in the way ;-; xD)

I hope you stick with your dream of getting a job that involves writing, I know you're very skilled at writing and I'm sure you'll do great at whichever career you end up in ^^

        Ah nice, April 19th isn't long at all for the vaccines, that's great! And yeah, hopefully July will be much more normal than last year's July!!

        It's been alright I suppose. School stresses the heck out of me sometimes with all the projects I'm handed out but you get the hang of it. Besides that, all I really have been doing is catching up on some shows and improving on my vocabulary, nothing out of the ordinary. :)

        I like to keep my messages at 1,999 just because it looks cool hehe

        I suppose that's life eh? I know wolfie quit online cause she's mostly on Instagram now, I used to be friends with woof but he doesn't come on anymore so I don't know what happened to him, jxden is sorta active on forums but don't know about on the server, withy quit I'm guessing, and wasn't friends with jojo.

        I haven't associated with Djones, RS, JJ, nor alexa but I know Bell was a legend there, she quit. Hermi is gone for sure since she's in college but yes, so many og players that I knew from MM since that was my main game at the time have also left. I do miss them a lot but we all move on in life and that's that.

    What is Brokenlens?????

    This place will, without a doubt, hold a special place in my heart. From endless hours hanging out with my friends to friendly and midnight conversations, I would have with them. But the time has come to express my gratitude and sorta the obvious of what this server has come to.

    First off, I think it’s pretty clear what this server has come too and it’s pretty safe to state that this server is dead. Oh, my apologies if I offended you already, would you like me to put it in a more delightful toon? Alright: this server has become boring throughout every year with people leaving for the better good. Don’t get me wrong, this server was my life back in 2018 where everything about Brokenlens was at its peak in my personal opinion. To drama about leaderboards and declaring who was king in which game, to OTIC drama and some idiot arguing about pc vs pe, it had it all! But alas, as the old saying goes, all good things come to an end.

    If you haven’t paid attention to the population growth or if you’re too busy trying to apply for those meaningless roles of staff and builder, then lemme give you the analysis of it real quick. Brokenlens was at the peak of its “business” if you could call it so, and since it was the summer of 2018, then it should come to no surprise that Brokenlens was sorta dominating the big dogs such as Lifeboat and a server I can't mention since Brokenlens are that childish, and mind you, these servers were promoted. So it was truly surprising to see Brokenlens often getting more players on a daily than Lifeboat would usually get throughout the day. Unfortunately for Brokenlens, that crown was quickly taken off shortly after autumn arrived.

    Many of the big players began to quit for personal reasons which I respect. I did, in fact, quit for a year, and lemme tell you, it was the most incredible choice I ever made. I wouldn’t be surprised if anyone from the past came back and told everyone that leaving this server was the best choice they ever made. Why? Well, naming all the reasons would be like reading out the names of all the disobedient kids that are on Santa’s list. Don’t believe me? Hm, alright, let me name a few: 1- Staff can’t handle criticism and prefer to always be in the right (could be a hint as to why your server died). 2- Way too many bugs that are never fixed (might as well delete the bug section,) 3- “The Watcher” or my best friend hehe, does a decent job of kicking out hackers and banning them but sometimes it bans the innocent person and that person has to go through a process of getting themselves unban which by a glance, appears to be a nightmare of a process. I could go on! Do you want me to?

    [Yes] [No]

    Oh, who am I kidding, might as well write an essay!

    Are you tired yet? If so, take a break! Too much screen time could lead to damage to your pupils and eventually degrease your eye vision… unless you’re aiming for the number 1 spot on the leaderboard every single week than in that case, holy shi-

    I’ll be honest, I couldn’t imagine dedicating yourself 80% of a day on a Minecraft server to only reach an in-game position of number 1 every single week and resetting every 7 days. I’ll be amazed but sadly, I’m not. Why? Cause I’m guilty of it myself.

    There was something about this server that no matter what game you were playing, it always came down to who could be in the top leaderboards and who were the ones with actual skills; that also includes the game you grinded the most. Now, as you would expect, drama was also included with this statement following by people detesting each other. That being said, drama was the main key to Brokenlens and it was windy that the only thing keeping Brokenlens from falling into the lake of sharks was drama. Now imagine this, take away the players that caused 90% of drama on a weekly basis, what do you have now? Hmm, I’ll let you decide on that.

    It’s astonishing how far Brokenlens has come. From creative lobbies during the holidays such as Halloween and Christmas to exciting giveaways that turns anyone on in hopes of their name being picked from the spinning wheel. But there comes a point where that excitement settles in and reality sets as you begin to grow.

    People left this server for personal reasons, that’s for sure, but another reason why the player base has dropped dramatically is actually quite simple, this server isn’t fun anymore. When you have a variable of people leaving at the same time, other people that might be friends with those that are leaving also leave. Why? C’mon, do I have to explain everything to you mindless people? Okay, it’s because the minigames this server has to offer aren’t exciting without having friends around to goof off. This server was built out of hard work and money spent into becoming a reality to someone that always wanted a server for everyone to chill out (shoutout to Vertx,) but it’s clear as glass when a server doesn’t get as many updates or improvements as a server should and people began to leave just because it becomes dull doing the same thing day after day. The same applies to a video game.

    So, this leads to the last conclusion of my rant and personal truth, 2020 - 2021.
    Dun! Dun! Dun!

    It’s shocking how stale this server became within my 1 year of leaving and returning to this plain server with almost no improvement, besides a new minigame where more lag is involved, yay! Then there are the new players that seem like good people but don’t give out the same vibes as old players did (yes, that includes me). The way I see it, these new players are only here to add on to the server and befriend any staff they might appear online for a chance at that shiny position of becoming staff. Moreover, those new players that became staff mostly talk with staff and not so much with ordinary players. I by no means mean to bash anyone that has a higher position than a peasant but let’s get real here, Old players will only remember the og staff back in 2016 - 2018. It’s honestly the truth.

    I firmly believe that Brokenlens could have been so much better with everything that players have been complaining for the past years, but it’s safe to say that Brokenlens decided to die on this hill and hire more staff to ban the infinite amount of hackers reported instead of fixing the system for banning the hackers. But hey, at the end of the day, staff have more power than those that speak out and tell the truth (which the staff hates).

    Remember the times where a player will instantly be shot down by staff by their lies? Yeah, we haven’t forgotten that.

    Free speech? Hmm, wonder what happened to that.
