This is a PSA to let everyone know our new policy on wiping player data. Our previous (and continual policy) is that if a player doesn't log in for 30 days, they're in danger of losing structures. Well, that's not changing. But up until now it's been an unspoken rule of thumb that such structures would only be removed if a player requested.

One of the side affects of having a server with such longevity is the thousands and thousands of player data files, and the ever littered map. In an effort to improve this, we're taking the liberty to go further.

So from now on, including up to now, any players who haven't logged into VeteranCraft in over 60 days will have their player data wiped. That includes MCMMO, ICONOMY, INVENTORY, ETC.

Sorry, but if you can't bring yourself to login for 5 miinutes every 2 months you don't warrant space on our hard drives. Your structures are also at our discretion at that point.

Good idea, keeps us away from abandoned structures, as well as unnessesary lag :D

Not cluttering the mcmmo boards with players that have been banned or just not on for months is pretty nice.  Might be awkward if it happens to staff though.

Does that include people who've paid for upgrades?

frelling can verify, but I believe it's automatically done.  Donors aren't exempt.  Your builds and Res's will still be maintained, as those are separate from player data.

But just out of curiosity, why would you pay IRL $ to a server and then not even play on it for 60 days or more?

In my case, it's because I help run a convention every year that eats every bit of spare time I have for at least three months.  It's just ended, so now I'll have time to come back and continue work on the projects I've started on the server.  

 

I'm sure there are other reasons for other people, but that one's mine.

Well, the solution is to just be sure and log in, even if you only stay for a minute or two to say hi, every 60 days (or 30, if you're a non-donor).  We understand things come up and people can't be active whenever they want, but a bare minimum of a periodic login can save you a lot of trouble when you return.

Summer, did your stuff get wiped? If so what?

No, my stuff is fine.  I was just making sure I understood the rules.  Thanks for checking. :-)

Ok. Yeah I don't believe it applies to donors (because I don't know if it's a script frelling wrote or if it's manual), but to be on the safe side, just login and logout once a month and you'll be fine.

Does it also include one player's residences? I'm just curious. ;)

It hasn't so far.  Players who have been wiped most of the time still have their Res's and structures when they return.  The exception for non-donors is that since they've been gone so long their Res's may have been requested to be removed.
