at New Glacia i found this public farm made by JSchub, cool i thought lets test it out, see how it works. 

There are clear signs saying you must replant if you harvest, offcourse i thought, that i will do.

But it turned out to be impossible since i didn't have the permission to replant

i weren't allowed to pick up the wheat i harvested either since i wasn't allowed acces to the container.

so not so public after all

i felt rude leaving it without replanting, but what could i do?

Sorry about that! This is one of the few times I've tried to use permissions, which were very clearly necessary after someone griefed the build for chests and hoppers earlier. I tried to give permission to everyone to use the buttons and take from the chests, but the chest permission must not have worked. I didn't even think about build permissions probably being needed to replant. Not certain how to handle it from here, because build permissions will allow destruction, unless there's a more specific permission just for planting, or perhaps if I can sub-claim only the dirt to try and leave the hoppers and chests protected... 

Either way, I appreciate you reporting the problem which will hopefully be fixable.

I think it's best until a proper solution is found that the public farm remains closed off. Better to ensure there is no means of griefing than to risk it all being destroyed (particularly given the no rollback rules). 

That said, I do regularly use the Guardian Farm portal that is in NG and sit in there so the farm can work its magic, and often than not the chests are full of raw fish to be used. Even if you can't get access to crops, the fish generation there will certainly be a good temporary replacement.

If you want to make a public farm, Melons are probably best: They can be harvested using Pistons while not requiring replanting*.This way all you need is Use Permission and nobody can do anything except get the food.

If you want to use chests to store food with an automatic system, which I imagine you have set up here, but don't want Container Permissions then try using Hoppers+Dispensers. (I assume at least that Dispensers work without Container permission if you just use buttons.) That way people can get food without having full access to everything and without being able to take everything there is.

(With Residence Melon Farms could be controlled even better, not requiring Pistons since you could give Destroy permission over SOLELY the melons, but GriefPrevention's Piston requirement isn't that big of a deal.)

* Because Melon Stems grow Melons onto adjacent squares, and Melons when pushed are automatically destroyed, the Melon Stems can keep regrowing new Melons and don't require replanting. You're not touching the stems after all.
