again, i'm hugely in favor of keeping the original map going for years to come, but as i've said many times, we don't have to do what i want.

a new map is fine, too. or perhaps two servers is the best middle ground; one maintaining the original map, one for a fresh start. either way, we can provide a downloadable archive of the original map for those of you who want a local copy.

As I stated before it might be possible to make a second server that the game mode is spectator only with the second map but i'm not sure how that would be affect server load. Could possibly limit server load by turning stuff off, like mobs and plugins?

Would it be under new management?

It would be run on aloha's server machine. The old server was still run by aloha staff but it wasn't run on the aloha machine. Froe might come back but I can't speak for him. No clue who would run it or do upkeep. Most of the people with experience aren't active any more.

I wouldn't mind helping out with the server but we would definitely need more mods depending on how many players we would get to play.

Another question: should we stick with a whitelisted limited number of players or maybe use a "greylist" where people can join but can't do anything until they are approved. Or no whitelist and anyone can join (which imo atm would be too trouble because of the need for more plugins/admins because of possible hacking/cheating/griefing)

Running a server is technically not that hard but we would need a sysadmin that can be readily available because of the way the aloha machine is set up iirc. The only reason the server kinda died is that after froe "died" we basically couldn't do anything thing without sysadmin+ ftp access. The gamepanel imo wasn't very good for minecraft.

Well, it seems like the majority of us want a new map.

A new map is most favorable.

The idea of an original world sticking around forever is a great one, but it's unrealistic in my opinion. Especially with how the world is right now, having gone through several terrain generation changes, massive explorations, and several patches. And over a hundred players have come and gone. It'd be better to start over, for a new generation to explore, build, etc.


Could as you suggest go multiworld and host the old map as a no-touchy spectator only map, but that can hurt performance I am unsure, and it relies on plugins to do.

Missed the poll but I am in favor of a new map. The old map was fun and I have good memories building on it, but with so many people gone and new faces wanting to play, it seems appropriate to have everyone start anew.

I wouldn't mind having the old map people spec only, since any building I plan on doing will be on the new map.

So we do not yet have an idea on what will happen with this new Minecraft map and server?

Perhaps the old world could be put up, read-only, upon request. If there's a certain bit of architecture there you really liked, maybe some fancy redstone machinery, it'd be nice to go back, take some pics, get some ideas. And if it's just a weekend, or an hour here or there, there's no load.

There was same dang cool stuff there.
