I am on yellow because I have involuntarily had university cut short thanks to a certain virus. For some more information about my status, see my current and future timetable of activity.

Hello there! My name is bensismith but please call me Ben. I'm not the first, but as original as you can get. I am the mayor of the towns Freshney, Pilmont and the old world town (well, islands) of Omerah. You'll often see me on the wiki and online on discord, but I'm less likely to be online nowadays.
Fun Fact list
Fun Fact number 1: I actually first came to the server in September as a guest, but my app was rejected (silly error) and I was ashamed to re-join! I then came back on in October, when everyone had forgotten about me, to get Member and a fresh start!
Fun Fact number 2: My town was among the longest to be unranked, and then to be councillor! (and active)
Fun Fact number 3: My sarcastic prediction for the month I would reach [Councillor] was correct!
Fun Fact number 4: I have been both to Minecon 2012 and 2015, meaning I have the capes! I usually sport the 2012 one since it's rarer!
Not my only quote!
(lalaboy67 acts like a sheep) Me: if that's the way you're going, lalaboy, maybe you should be bababoy.
Current plan of activity
This server has been amazing and the community has been the main reason I have played for over 4 years. However, my interest in building a town has dwindled from little to almost non-existent. It is not a fact I haven't wanted to accept but I am now, mainly as I progress through my education. I will likely still be around on the wiki and on discord, as well as turning up for GSMs and if I am requested. (which you can still do, although I may not join. Just DM me on discord.)
Here is a rough guide to what each status means now. This is listed since they don't match with what is normally accepted but instead is relative to my activity.
- means that I have motivation to come on and start building. This doesn't mean everyday but it would mean often and with intention.
- means that I will come on the server at least once a week, and probably will be doing maintenance or procrastinating.
- means I am physically available to come on the server but am not intending to unless wanted. Don't feel this means I don't want to, its just I don't have reason to join.
- means I am physically unavailable to come on the server, due to being away or extremely busy. During these periods unless I actually come online I will not be able to.
I doubt I am going to leave the server (and I would hope to be never banned as well), but I will eventually make a will in case I do.
- Most likely until September.
- after September for the forseeable future, due to university starting.
The best way to contact me is via a DM on discord (see infobox). You can also contact me by using the built in "send user email" function here, if that is more suitable. As long as you follow the instructions I should respond within 24 hours (unless on red).
When I do come online I am available most of the weekends (usually), and after 7pm weekdays, unless my status says otherwise.
