Hello Staff of VC,

I just wanted to throw an idea at you (which might have a few flaws), and see what you think.

On a server I used to play on for a lil bit over a year ago there was this mechanic that every build had to be marked with a sign(dynmap plugin). If this was done in the correct format, a icon would showup on the livemap and everyone would know who build it. 

So the idea to keep the map clean, was to get everyone online once every 3 months and just break down all the unmarked buildings people could find & returning the landscape back to normal. Since we (used to & might once again) have the GP overlay thing for the dynmap no signs will have to be used. It was finders keepers, so people actually went looking for buildings so they could once again use the resources others had abandonned. 

The main goal for this idea was:

  • Keep the map clean
  • Reduce the amount of work the staff has to do regarding removal requests.

I understand that there might be a few flaws with this, like:

  • stuff that has not been protected
  • players cant check wether or not the owner of the build has been offline for longer than 30 days (month?)

I know it might be hard to find a solution to these flaws, but maybe this could be a nice idea to keep the map clean for new users or people who want to build something new.


I just remembered this concept and I am not really sure if it is something this server is suited for, but I thought it wouldnt hurt to just share it!

-Greetings, Ted
