    I don't see why anyone is even discussing a LOA reset. People pay money for things in LOA. Voting gives items in LOA. LOA is known for being the server that will never reset, and is advertised as such. If LOA resets, whats to differentiate it from LOD, or whatever server will take its place? Players have spent a fuckton of time on LOA under the impression that it will never reset. That promise will not be broken for a handful of players. Whatever you want to happen to LOA, lets make it happen to the new server taking the place of LOD.

    I'm pretty sure that the people who are WAYYYY more richer and have 10x better builds then you have and want the server to be resetted are VERY important members of this post. And the thing that would differentiate LOA from LOD would be the fact that LOA is only resetting ONCE. I have donated over 250$ for this server and would be VERY happy to see LOA be restarted. The new players would also love it and I am sure most of the veterans would come back.

    So what you're saying is that the small amount of rich people who want an LOA reset have the right to make the decision of resetting LOA, at the cost of displeasing everyone else who didn't want a reset?
    There's a sign next to the LOA portal that says "Non-resetting vanilla server".

    This is beside the point. Cobi asked for suggestions, not whether or not there should be a reset. Lets get back to suggesting ideas to improve LOA, LOD, LOH or whatever server it is that these changes will be made to.

    Get rid of Hitler and his army. That's my only improvement for this server.

    So, getting concrete suggestions is proving difficult. I have an idea. I've made a list of most, if not all, of the specific complaints people have made about LOA in this thread. Look at this list, and see if there's any that you have a specific idea that will help fix.

    I think discussion about resets isn't very productive. There's the fact that LOA has never reset, promises never to reset, that people have paid for items that will never go away, and to make those things go away is theft. Ethically, people would have to be refunded for all of the items they didn't get to use before the reset. There's the fact that there's a significant amount of people who don't want a reset. And finally, a look at the nexus shows that the admins don't look like they're planning on doing a reset either. So, when making suggestions for this list, do so with the idea that these suggestions will apply to a new server, not a resetted LOA.

    The list:
    1) We got some new players, but:
    - Not the masses we thought he summer would bring
    - Many of them have left
    - Others stayed and caused stupidity
    - Others stayed and built terrible structures at spawn
    - They're just generally not good at MC PvP survival
    - They don't seem to be aspiring to be rich PvP warlords
    - They can't find any fun bases to raid, so they get bored
    2) Our veteran players are:
    - Building really far out
    - Not doing prot 4 PvP
    - Camping spawn and making new players leave
    3) It's too difficult to:
    - Find a good base to raid
    - Use all the resources we have (diamond blocks sitting around)
    4) Hitler and his army are running rampant

    I think I've got what's been said in the thread. So, here's the problems; see if you can't work out some solutions!

    I really think that giving everyone free tp and a /home would make more people stay. I'm willing to bet that a lot of the people that hang out at spawn don't know about the end portal, and even if they did, /home seems like something that would encourage more players to build out farther than 100 blocks and actually make progress.

    Agreed, a sethome would probably help new players a lot. Though it would probably be tricky to implement since a lot of people have already purchased /sethome.

    Giving new players 1 home and tpa privileges is a change that has been needed for a very long time.
    People who donate probably wouldn't be too upset because its going to keep more players on the server.

    What if players who don't have /sethome will be able to set their homes using a bed, but not with the command, while players who do have the command will be able to set their homes wherever with the command?

    So in other words, have beds be used as a sethome.

    Perhaps players could earn a free /sethome by playing on LOA a certain number of hours, similar to the amount of time required for an invite to register?

    NO NO NO AND NO. That isn't Vanilla gameplay at all. The moment you get into the plugin economy bullshit the server goes to shit.

    The problem is this vanilla server almost cannot bring happy raid, when you are advertising it's a free raid server to attract players coming to LOA. Vanilla server is inherently flawed, it gets boring during time, longer or shorter. I am still in love with LOA, since I still got things to do, such as setting a tnt trap on the way to end portal. -.- some chicken spawn killed me when I was going to do that.

    Maybe advertising your server to other countries can help a little. We don't have more than 10 good servers here in China. And none of them is vanilla. Never reset is a great idea, but can hardly success in business way.

    Sorry for my poor English. ^^

    People need an infinite sandbox to build and keep their decent constructions and great gears, and people on the other hand have a need to show off their works or violence. What a paradoxical game.
