<< The Reformation Era - The Second Golden Age of Nosiphus

When Maguire destroyed the server in The Great Server Destruction, I knew something had happened. Wyatt had rejoined, Nosiphus had an expanded member base, and we were making videos for fun again. I knew that when that video happened, it triggered The Second Golden Age of Nosiphus.

Many new members were brought in, including Jason Faucett, Jackson James, John Dent, and Zack Carter. Weston Simpson was invited back, and the suspension system was removed. Wyatt and I also brought in long-needed reforms to the company, including a reorganization of jobs. Wyatt became Chief Operating Officer, replacing Will Mills, who became a simple content creator. The new Nosiphus began to assign proper titles to members, and a new term, Nosiphites, emerged to refer to staff members. Wyatt kicked out Gummi and Maddie with my support, and we let Nate Foster go.

Sydney Cook rose to prominence not only as my main love interest, but also as an adviser to Nosiphus. I decided early on that if I was going to have an interest in her, I could at least use Nosiphus to deflect attention from my emotions. Between February and May, I was continually mired in a state of extreme sadness over her, and Nosiphus was about the only way to block the love depression. On May 9, I allowed her to view the 2013 Nosiphus notebook, and she made some notable improvements to it. Her presence caused the de-privatization of multiple Nosiphus assets, including the unfinished script for Hinkley's Manor. While my interest in her came and went in May and June, it finally evaporated on June 27.

After July 11, my playtime on the server seriously declined. I began to grow bored of Minecraft, and gaming in general. I thought I would return within a few days as I had before, but I didn't. On August 10, I began to watch old footage of myself from the early 2000s, and it became apparent that I would not see Minecraft in the same way again. I began to slowly reject the way I had run my life since 2009, desiring the way I had done things from 2003 on back. I noticed the key problems had been caused chiefly by the amount of time I spent outside being near-zero. When I recovered a toy I had when I was about five years old, I had to hold back tears from the emotional wave from seeing it.

I decided to take some time off from running Nosiphus, and I put Wyatt, Maguire, and Jake in joint-control as Acting CEOs in the interim. Upon my return on August 20, I was rather decisive, removing a massive section of Nosiphus that didn't do much. I also rewrote major parts of The Openness Plan and The Content Production Plan. I altered the Editing Code, and also began the drastic change of disconnecting Minecraft from the core of Nosiphus. My friends and I began to interact in a more personal way, and the computers began to disappear, at least for me. By late September, I began to grow nostalgic for the August 2013 world save that was used during The Internationalist Times. 

The era of Minecraft 1.7.10 came to an end on October 11 when Nosiphus Unleashed became our new 1.10.2 pack. However, due to a multitude of technical problems that plague the new pack, a return to Telkit is not out of the picture. If this happens, another Version War may be sparked.

Musically, the time period was dominated by The Beatles. I began to listen to their recordings in both mono and stereo, and I also updated the quality of my digital music from mp3 to m4a files. As their importance grew, so did the importance of music. Nosiphus will begin a transition to vinyl record reviews. I began to establish a friendship with Logan Hite, a friend of Sydney's who happened to love music as much as Maguire and I do.

As the year 2017 came to a close, there was a growing feeling that it was time for Nosiphus to become more political. There was also a growing attachment to the Telkit server, and a renewed occasional conversation with Maddie and Gummi, who had become less dramatized than before. I also began to publish episodes of Castaways that I had put off editing since March 24.

On January 1, 2018, the first livestream test was conducted, and the Nosiphus LIVE name was applied to it. On January 3, a plethora of legacy footage was uploaded, dating back as far as the multiplayer Telkit series Nathan and I filmed in February 2016, right after Wyatt began his independent period. Wyatt, however, was still good friends with us during The Reformation Era, and was involved in (the currently unreleased) episodes 4 through 7 of the original Telkit series.

After a lull time of late 2017 when content output was massively down, a renewed feeling has returned. The Second Golden Age of Nosiphus has come roaring back. If the mindset of the Peaceful Period returns, then we are in for one hell of a year.

January 2018 was a rough month. My parents and I moved in with my paternal grandparents due to our house being old, and my maternal grandmother passed away on January 18. It was one of the worst couple weeks of my lifetime.

Come February, things began to improve. The 2013 Nostalgia Wave, amplified by its five year anniversary, came roaring back to prominence and caused Sean to begin the process of fine-tuning the server and website. I began to interact with Brianna Liberati again, and she began to play on the server once more. On February 17, I restored three 2014-15 mansion world buildings: One of Bri's houses, Wyatt's Sunset Manor, and the tenth NosLabs break room, with the coffee machine fully rebuilt.
