Template:2B2T Player Infobox _m_o_t_h_r_a_ is a newfag on 2b2t, known for basing at Block Game Mecca and being one of the people behind the 100k Mapping Project. Basing at Block Game Mecca lead to them to participate in The BoeMeccan Witch Trials, and they are currently a spawnmason.
Early Time on 2b2t
_m_o_t_h_r_a_ joined 2b2t in January of 2017. Like most new players, they spent their first few months building a solo base a few thousand blocks away from spawn, crafting their own gear, and making periodic journeys to spawn. Later, the Crafting Table Dupe became public, allowing _m_o_t_h_r_a_ (and most other players at the time) to dupe incredible amounts of items quickly, and _m_o_t_h_r_a_ "...actually became wealthy" as a result.
Around this time, _m_o_t_h_r_a_ wrote a chatbot that would use a learning model to generate fake chat messages for different players named ParrotBot (which is no longer active). In order to train the bot's learning model, they reached out to bot owners to ask for chat logs, as bots were online more or less all the time and would have the most data to comb through. AutismBot and Slappnbadkids were among the bot owners contacted, and _m_o_t_h_r_a_ soon became good friends with them. Because of this friendship, _m_o_t_h_r_a_ was invited to Block Game Mecca (and later, to the Spawnmasons).
The 100k Mapping Project
Around November of 2018, _m_o_t_h_r_a_ had "a dream to create the largest Minecraft world download of all time." Partnering with others on 2b2t, _m_o_t_h_r_a_ masterminded the largest Minecraft world download ever. A year after starting on this endeavor, they posted the WDL on Reddit, getting 2.7 thousand upvotes before the post was archived. As for why this project was undertaken, _m_o_t_h_r_a_ said "We have already data-mined [2b2t] in various ways, but [I] hope that others will do so in creative ways that we didn’t think of."
