Hello everyone!

So I was thinking... we have very few people playing nowadays, and there's less inspiration around.

Why don't we try to recruit some people from... the internet?

We already have a private snapshot server for knights+, so setting a public server up should be quite easy.

It might attract people (if we advertise it well enough) since I'm unsure if there are many long-term public snapshot servers about which update themselves. Some of the players might be interested in joining our community as well!

So, what do you guys say? Please vote on this post to agree!

    It's a good idea. I can also cross-promote to the Scrolls community (I'm getting to be kind of a big deal there)

    Er... founding member (second in command) of the guild with the most ESL wins, and the second most powerful guild in the game. Have the ear of the developers, and even got carnalizer (the lead artist) to draw some custom art for a tournament I founded.

    So that's why you've been relatively absent lately. And to think I haven't even got Scrolls myself.

    My exams ended, and after a week of flu I'm back!

    The public snapshot server has been setup, with backups and everything!

    It runs at minelord.com:11235 with an IRC relay at #Minelord-Public,
    and the server backs up every 30 minutes,
    with off-site backups daily at 6am GMT.

    There's a spawn protection area of 21x21 around the spawn block.
    I have marked it out:

    All Lords and Lady are opped on this server.
    We should discuss if Sirs and Dames should also be opped!

    Due to silly me setting the world to be a large biomes type... we had to reset it.

    Here's the new world with the spawn area (currently 100x100) marked out:
    http://i.imgur.com/nyxFZhw.png
    We've had a short discussion about the size of the area, and some of us want private space which won't be griefed, and others want it to be minimal so it helps new players but doesn't make it unfair in general.

    What do you guys think?

    Also, should we op sirs and dames? Note that ops can do things like turning the whitelist on, banning players, restarting the server and anything else an op can do on a vanilla Minecraft server.

    The argument that sirs and dames are sirs and dames because we trust them serves as enough of an argument to trust them with operator powers as well, I say.
    Though I say a lot of things.
    Like for example how I find 258 by 258 blocks to be a reasonable size for the no-build zone, not an overly large one. Especially if we're looking to build a *city* at spawn.

    I agree with Glun, that size (or a little bigger) is perfectly acceptable.

    Having played with the 101x101 spawn are above my head, I can agree that it's a bit small for a 'city'.

    The question though is whether we want a city, town, or small hostel for starting players.

    I forgot a point that renders this discussion less relevant. A snapshot server may need the world refreshed if the world rendering changes. So we can't assume anything to be permanent.

    PS. We've got a stockpile set up to share resources:

    We could share our resources and use them to build things like rule boards, communal nether portals, etc.

    I like the idea of allowing sirs and dames on this server, however, seeing as I'm a "Sir" of course I would say that. Do whatever you think is safest. :)

    oh the server is completely public, and I'll be adding all sirs and dames to the ops list very soon :)

    Edit: Done!! You can now do anything to the server, and also build in the spawn-protected area.

    Ah ok, it is public. I must have misread the post. Thanks Windy!
