Just earlier today I’ve logged into the server to notice my whole town was completely obliterated by a user who was looking just to have some fun by griefing it. My house’s walls were removed, chests were gone, horses and farm animals were killed, the farm was seedless, the roads were full of holes with blocks randomly placed everywhere, and there was lava everywhere. The user’s whole purpose of doing this was for enjoyment, he didn’t even keep anything from my town. When I asked him why he did it, he said he did it because ‘I thought it was abandoned’, yet he knew it wasn’t abandoned & continued just because he could use that as an excuse. “Mick and I told him it wasn’t abandoned and asked he stopped, he said he knew it was occupied, yet continued I told him it was your town and I wasn’t sure whether you’d want him to live in it or not, but he said you two were friends and you wouldn’t mind, I still insisted he asked you about it.” - Yuno // Habin Heck if someone didn’t tell him, you can’t assume something is abandoned just seeing it on first sight, he hasn’t seen our town sit there for months untouched with no signs of ownership (as an abandoned town would have). Just because something isn’t yours, or isn’t claimed shouldn’t make you assume it’s ‘abandoned’ and that you have full rights to do whatever you want with it. Our town had signs everywhere linking ownership, you could of done /seen & found out that the owners were last seen just hours ago. You could also say ‘Well Shattered why didn’t you claim it? And I thought I did, but I don’t know how to use the claim plugin, besides I didn’t teleport people I don’t trust inside, shouldn’t of been a problem if I didn’t claim it. The whole point of this thread is to point out that people are destroying everything they can, just because they can and every time their excuse is ‘its unclaimed’, ‘its abandoned’, or ‘griefing is allowed now’... If the server rules are allowing & enforcing users to make these sort of excuses to grief it needs to be changed. We’d like the following changes below made: A rule put in place where you can no longer grief whatever you see that’s unclaimed, just because its unclaimed doesn’t mean it's yours. It also doesn't mean it's abandoned, However you still can take over abandoned structures. (and we will cover whats abandoned and whats not next.) Guidelines explaining how to tell if a house is abandoned, or if it's not. Just because you see something that isn’t claimed doesn’t mean it’s abandoned. A structure is abandoned if the owner hasn’t played on the server for over 2 months. Claims will automatically expire after 2 months, but not all people claim all of their structures therefor you can not go by the claim system to tell you if a structure is abandoned. To tell if the owner hasn’t played in over 2 months and has abandoned the server you’d run the command ‘/seen [username]’. Obviously if there is no signs proving ownership the structure is not that important & has no ownership. People are abusing this abandoned excuse by calling everything they see ‘abandoned’. Griefing with malicious intentions, vs moderate griefing. An example of griefing with malicious intentions would be destroying everything you can & causing terror for fun. An example of moderate griefing would be taking items out of a chest. Griefing with malicious intentions will not be allowed, users will be punished if found doing so. Moderate griefing will be allowed however we will not enforce it. If someone’s house gets moderately griefed we will fix it for them if it wasn’t claimed, and we’d tell them to claim it. However if they don’t claim it and it gets moderately griefed again we won’t help them fix it. If someones house gets griefed by a griefer with malicious intentions it will always be rolled back. We’d like these changes put in place. The server is getting too out of hand, people are doing things they shouldn’t be & are using the current server rules as excuses.
