About Our Community


After being wiped on one too many servers, Lewimaron decided he’d had enough. On the 9th of June all the way back in 2016…
The Jamon Paradigm was founded!
Since then we’ve had many ups and downs, but we still maintain the same enthusiasm and pride in everything we do and look forward to the future!




We have a dedicated and professional Admin team ready to serve the community and maintain balance in the cluster! Below, you can read a little bit about them.

Lewimaron

The big cheese, the one who started it all. Nearly four years as main admin of the servers and still going strong. He’s the one who pays for everything and sets up all the cool server stuff.

Pfenix

Pfenix is an illustrator and math nerd that lives in Oklahoma City. She loves math, puns, and Troodons.

Evelynn

Evelynn is an Dutch person who works with machines but loves to make art and play with her dog. Dimorphs are her favorite dino species, just so tiny and deadly.

We have a number of really helpful volunteers who help out with all sorts of fancy stuff. Pretty much none of this would be possible without them!

Fascinare

Fascinare is a self-taught hobbyist programmer, having worked with code on and off since the mid 2000s. Adept with Discord and trying her best to wrangle with Ark.

Skipjuh

Skipjuh is a professional video editor who makes all of our trailers and other videos.
