    The server has been very quiet recently, so it seems a reset poll is in order.

    If we reset, the new world will be generated in 1.12 until the update is released. The world border will be set at +/- 5,000 blocks so that everyone may get started. Upon release of and update to 1.13, the world border will be expanded to +/- 15,000 blocks. New terrain generated after the update will be generated with 1.13 and all new items/biomes will be available with it.

    As is the standard protocol with resets, all items (including money, vote points, mcmmo, jobs, warps, etc.) will be reset. The creative server will be completely unaffected. New this time, monetary donations in the donation store will be blocked for the first week after the reset to allow all players to get started on an even playing field. After the one week, donations will be available as normal.

    You may have noticed that the poll has three options. The first is pretty standard, nothing changes. The second involves a sudden increase in the availability of TNT and similar items, as well as the dissolution of all towns on the server. The final option is new. In essence, all players will receive creative mode and a large number of townblocks, at which point they will be free to complete any currently outstanding builds. The latter two options would only be available between the closing of the poll and the end of the month. When deciding whether or not to reset, I will count the sum of the latter two options and compare it with the first.

    As always, I am happy to answer any questions privately or in replies to this thread.

    If I choose number where we get creative, after players finish projects can we blow stuff up?

    We won't have time. I want to reset before the end of the month so that we show up higher in the voting lists and get more new players.

    What is the purpose in finishing the projects when they are simply due to be erased?

    The world will be available for download when it resets. You can also get a picture of your completed project for future reference or to show off.

    The poll will close Friday morning. Friday afternoon I will set up whatever is voted for. The reset itself would occur Sunday night or sometime on Monday.

    Can we have creative to blow something off up?

    I know there is a few people that left already due to the impending reset, and I know myself personally will probably end up being in-active due to this reset. There are others that I know feel the same. Unfortunate.

    I'm personally really upset that we are resetting. There is no need for it. There are other measures that can be taken to occupy players until 1.13 is released. What is the benefit of resetting at the end of this month as opposed to waiting until the end of May when 1.13 will more than likely have been released? What is the problem with just goofing off with Creative on the Towny world and having a 2-300 town block bonus for the whole month of May while we wait? I would personally love to go ham on my town Blackwater with Creative. I'm with Aaron564419 on this one. I'll probably go inactive for a while if we go through with this. Terribly unfortunate.

    The server shop will be completely unaffected. I may consider giving creative mode in the mass grief option. I also want to make a minor amendment to an earlier statement. Realizing that players generally want to be online for the launch of a new world, the reset, should it be voted for, will be moved to after the player committee meeting. The towny server may go offline before then to get it ready. The player committee meeting will go on as scheduled.

    No. I'm pro don't reset until 1.13 releases and in the meantime I think it would be cool to overhaul my town and build some amazing things in Creative for a month while we sit around and wait for the update because resetting is only gonna slap some duck tape on the problem until next time things slow down.. My money is on early November at the LATEST... In the words of Sparky: "You can only rejuvenate activity by resetting the map so much and even then, more should be done."

    I like how there's 2 yes choices and one no... and then that no is "No, I like the quiet server. I am forever alone." rather than "No, I want to reset during the summer like we've been doing"

    Urban, you should realize by now that resetting won't magically get you players. Sure, at first the server becomes more active and all since some players are happy with it, but after a few months, it'll just go back to being quiet. It's a cycle, it's happened this whole time. There's going to be a point where quite a few players will become tired of the resets (mind you the amount of players going to other servers), and they'll end up quitting, which means you'd lose more players instead of gaining.
    If you continue using this method, your player base won't grow at all, and it might as well decrease. I do think you should stop relying on it.

    The whole reason I quit again was because the whole server just stayed still. Nothing happened, nothing changed. Same old get up, make money, deposit money into bank, log off, sleep.
    It's too boring. A reset would do the job to stop people like me quitting, and encourage me to advertise to other friends to get them to join the server.

    Resetting doesn't solve that problem. Resetting solves the right problem of cyclical disinterest in the server after a few months but the wrong way. What would break the cycle is addition of content like slimefun, custom/OP items, fancy mobs, etc...

    Yeah, even if the server resets and you bring friends with you, half way through you'll get bored again. Nobody likes doing the same thing over and over again and that's why resets are completely useless.
