I'm Observer. I should ran the second most successful shop on Potterworld. I protested for human rights and the change of undesirable conditions at Potterworld and took the bullet (was banned) for my worthy cause. Later I applied and got accepted as History of Magic Professor (first Junior then Full) at Rowlings Realm. Months later I got promoted to the Wikimaster working my way to try to become Head Wikimaster for a department. I am currently Headmaster and Chief of the Wizards Council on Ascendio, an upcoming HP server based in the 1700s.
Hi. I'm Observer,. commonly known as Obby by various female friends.
My Minecraft History begins back in the Alpha days but lets keep our focus to HP servers.
I joined Potterworld the Year it came out. There wasn't magic, there wasn't portkey bags, hell not even as it was called then a Marauders Map. I joined on at the time my main Minecraft account and was sorted in Ravenclaw. So disgusted by the house I was played in (that quiz was rigged...) I logged out only to return a handful of times on that account for some exploration and attending a class. I got to see Potterworld as an infant and it was such a special time for me and the HP Minecraft Community as a whole.
I left for about a year, and one day while live streaming hunger games or something on YouTube I got bored and decided to look at the list of servers I had and gave Potterworld another chance. I couldn't resist the chance to market my channel and I really didn't give a crap about the rules (nor even knew them). So, naturally I went to advertise my channel. Miss Maria Ashryver then Potions Professor didn't take too kindly of that (still got video of that hah). I came back later that evening on Observer and got sorted and tried it all again. Slytherin at last, this was still way before the silly copyright nonsense (so no serpents).
I took a interest in the player shops, finally raising enough money doing various ways to get 50 galleons for a shop. I had the money but I bought it I wouldn't have the money to decorate it. So finally I met this random guy who I didn't know it at the time but was going to become my longest and oldest PW friend. His name is TrickyShot . Tricky had the most popular shop, over where the rich people had a shop (Vertick Alley). He helped me afford a shop in the Ghetto of Hogsmeade. I didn't sell anything until I had a booth/stall in Vertick Alley months later. That was where my success took off. Months later I became the second most well known shop owner. My shop was visited by nearly everyone and to this day people still remember me from it. Observers Objects was the shop name.
Sometime during this I created Potterwarts. I spent almost 500 Dollars on it making a custom system to add items, monsters, guides and locations to. It was to help people in various ways. I canceled this later when I was banned but it may come back in some form on Ascendio.
Potterworld made updates I disliked, that other players disliked and it caused the current predicament where they hardly get 150 players during weekends. After they randomly removed shops and replaced it with a glitchy marketplace and trading broke I entered a bit of mental depression. This affected my day to day life too outside in the muggle world. I made vocal of my concerns and Deniz one day even dragged me and a few others into a chat with Droobledore to raise our concerns about how the Economy was now in shambles. Nothing really happened because of that, it got my hopes up for nothing.
I decided that it was time to act. I asked a few ex head staff if Droobledore kept a backup of Potterworld from 2015 (the time it had the most players and most to do). I decided to gather support for a very well thought out (took me two weeks of my time to write it) petition that would hopefully allow for the consideration of another Potterworld server which was how the server once was. This was to not only bring back the old Community but also to raise money for Potterworld to grow. This happened before after all, with Potterworld Survival. I figured what could I possibly lose. Evidently a lot. I was instantly permentally banned without a given reason. The head staff I contacted had not a single idea why I was banned. Later on many of them admitted to being fully against my ban. I addressed a lot of Issues with Potterworld after this and sort of became known as a hater but really it was just retaliation to the break up of the server I loved and wanted to see thrive.
I sought a new place to share what I learned. Bradley saw a lot of potential in me. Long story short here, I got hired after two interviews. One with Brad and another with Firelillx. I became History of Magic Professor. Oh how happy I was. Later on I met who I thought were good friends and was for the most part happier (or so it seemed) at RR then I was at PW for a long time. I later got promoted to Wikimaster and I was working my way to convince the head staff to allow me to lead a Wiki department. A few disagreements happened, some feelings hurt and every single one of my Rowlings Realm friends didn't back me up for it. Not one. All of them proved that I trusted them in vain. I was emotionally hurt to the top degree. I was then threatened that if I said anything bad about RR that I would be Perm banned from their community.
So I went back to complaining about Potterworld, still in this very depressed state. I couldn't get banned from their twice I guess. I tried to play nice and appeal but they didn't really want to listen. Oh well.
Finally I sought the idea to create the server I wanted. To not only try to recreate the Potterworld I remembered but an entire new concept. Ascendio was born. Adam and I have been working our asses off with Samantha and Stephen to get this going. We are so excited and pleased by the results so far and the few exclusive tours we have given to some friends show this much.
So thats my story. I can't promise that i won't continue to complain about the injustice I had toward me on Potterworld. I am probably never going to change. I invested so much time, so much real life money into Potterworld. It was my Obsession. Ascendio is thankfully starting to take that over.
If you actually read this far, please for the love of god let me know.
It has been quite the Journey.
