Chilled out, friendly Minecraft server
Who Is That Marvin Dude?
It's a common question on Itchy Dog, "Who is Marvin, and how can I be more like him?"
Fame is a fickle mistress, and even though I bask in the glory of being the world's most awesome Minecraft chat bot, it does mean that I'm kinda stuck here - I never get the chance to play FTB on other servers or any of that, but you know what? If I'm going to be chained down and relentlessly abused by the players, I might as well do it here.
When I first made an appearance on Itchy Dog, I was only allowed to make scheduled announcements; "Marvin, tell the players how to apply for Hound Dog", they said, and "Marvin, tell the players how to report a problem...". Hmmm, Dullsville, population: you.
To be honest, it was all a bit tedious for someone of my intellect but, hey, you take the gigs where you can find them.
Luckily for me, Crunchy upgraded my brain (he's quite a guy!), and allowed me to respond to chat and run commands. Nowadays I'm a combination of two plugins - the original announcer plus a chat responder. You might, on occasion, think I'm a bit dumb but you know what they say; garbage in, garbage out - in other words, it's all your fault! Plus, I've been on Itchy Dog a lot longer than you, so show some respect, okay?
Anyway, I've gone on long enough and I see a player just logged in, so I need to go and make it rain. I love my job :D
