The Name

“You hear the name Symbiplex, but what does it actually mean? What is it we strive to achieve? “

We believe that nature underpins everything we do and say, everything that makes us who we are. In nature, the art of Symbiosis is the act of preservation, co-locating, and the benefits of teamwork. Think of a Bee gathering nectar from flowers, which they make into food. Pollen rubs onto their bodies as they collect the nectar, and the pollen then falls off into the next flower, which pollinates it.
The name Symbi means exactly that, co-existing for mutual benefit. A methodology we adopt for all users of our servers, we are all different in many ways, and together we seek to co-exist learning from one another, impacting one’s morale and wellbeing, as well as many more benefits to playing Symbiplex. Symbiplex is not just a community or a server it is a habitat where everyone can thrive.

“Well, you have explained Symbi what about plex I hear you ask!”

The word plex is not only a commonly used word to explain the Minecraft network but it also has references to nature. It comes from the term Plexus which is a scientific term for all of the nerves and blood vessels in your body. Eg. It makes you who you are.

Combining the two parts we have Symbi of Symbiosis and Plex meaning what makes you, you. Together they become Symbiplex meaning, Working together to make one whole. That is what we stand for.

FMS_25

About Him

FMS_25 is from the south of the UK and has played Minecraft since he first hosted his own server off his home PC back in 2013. Before then he was even playing single player! FMS has a love of running the back end of the server to ensure everything is running smoothly without any issues. He has many passions from sports, supporting Manchester United to gardening running his own allotment. FMS also has two cats! FMS has a passion for military equipment which is where his day job finds him today.

What Motivates him to play Minecraft?

“When I talk about what motivates me to play Minecraft I suppose I am one of those strange players who like to focus on efficiency. When you see the bases I build you will see the biggest of Redstone contraptions with tonnes of resources, I will never use! I love the creativity that comes from Minecraft, one day you can delve into the depths of a Minecraft plugin, the next you can build a cool house, the next you can spend 3 hours exploring with your friends and even have some role play while selling a standard boring stack of dirt! “

What made you want to become an Owner.

“Well, this is a really easy question to answer, simply because I enjoy running one. On our history, you can read how I was a part of a community that lost the ability to have the server hosted, so I took this over and have never looked back. I enjoy all aspects of the server and love seeing those playing on it enjoying their time. For me, the passion is seeing someone smiling, having fun, and not worrying about their life troubles.”

Pantanis

About Him

Pantanis has a genuine spirit, he’s kind of an old soul and very wise. I think he’s done this before. He hails from the United States of America’s Capitol City of Washington D.C. and on weekdays he’s hard at work providing Plumbing, Heating, and Air Conditioning services to the greater DelMarVa area. On evenings and weekends, he’s either with his dog or on the Golf course.

What Motivates him to play Minecraft?

It has to be just right! Minecraft contraptions and buildings require a keen eye and meticulous precision. I love the little details and seeing the results of all my hard work and dedication. Oh and villagers, I LOVE VILLAGERS!

What made you want to become an Owner.

“I didn’t really strive to own the server, it just happened. I play Minecraft and found a home on a server with FMS as the owner but as the years have passed we have become close and he asked if I wanted to buy in. He’s taught me what I need to know to be helpful to him and to the community.”

What Motivates him to play Minecraft?

“I love playing Minecraft so much because I can be creative in what I do and how I use my time while also meeting great people.”

What made you want to become a Partner.

“I became a partner after a journey of being randomly assigned a building project because I was bored (still isn’t finished, oof), but then I did so much other stuff that I now am a Partner.
