Hey guys, especially admins.
Recently we've gone through a big reset, which I understand was meant to refresh the server and make things more interesting for those of us who've made great progress.
That said, as someone who isn't among that group, I'm more than a little frustrated to know that my base is gone, and so are all my items. Despite my contributions to the server in both time and money, I start the survival server now with little to show for it except the ability to fly.
While I certainly enjoy shaking up anthills myself, and a big part of the fun of Minecraft is in creating things, it's also nice to have them persist. I'm tentative to rejoin the server with any gusto because I know that before long, we're liable to reset again, and I will have no choice but to accept it.
I'd really love to have old servers moved to an inactive place, or a backup file provided for people to restore their creations in private or on other servers, or some way of giving us a way to hold on to our fond memories of previous constructions.
I know resets are important, especially for those who play a great deal, but being able to build something that we can show off to new players in a year or two is important to me, and I think at least a couple other folks on the server.
Is there any recourse to keep both those who want to rebuild and those who want to preserve happy?
