    Community Projects

    Post  SrslySrs on Sat Jan 22, 2011 1:59 pm

    In the short time I've been on this server, I haven't really seen that many community projects if any at all. So here is my idea. On occasion, we could have a contest that groups players together as the admins see fit to build the best possible structure within a designated amount of time. Structures could be themed base (i.e. a western town, ancient ruins, etc.). Participation would be completely voluntary, and teams would be even, both and numbers and skill. (i.e.not people who just joined the server vs. the admins). At the end of the alloted time (the end would be whenever an admin is present and is assured to be able to stay), builders would be required cease building. The admins could then judge between the teams and reward the winners with prizes like iConomy cash or temporary donator status.

    I realize this would take a huge amount of cooperation and flexibility on everyone's part, and I don't think that this will be seen anytime soon, but I thought the idea was interesting and just wanted to share. Thanks for reading.

    I'll keep this in mind. Events are always fun.


    Edit*

    Thinking about this more it might be a good way to keep people interested with a temp server, post on this if u want something like this to happen.

    Im thinking a way to make this more organized is maybe take two areas, possibly in donor land, and make it so you need permissions to build in each of the two areas. Make the areas the same size and basic layout, and then each team gets to build in their area only. That way there could be no greifing except from teammates. Also we could start each team with a chest with a certain amount of items to start the build with.

    i really like this idea

    Not really a community project but a community gathering/tornament.

    Once Spleef plug-in is functional, I think we should have a big round-robin 1v1 tournament for all to join if they please. We can have 1v1 matches best of three. I think this will be a fun event to bring the server together for an afternoon of spleefage.

    Just an idea

    Just my .02, but I'd like to see some of the above.

    I was thinking this also tournament is not what I want, Towns, Roads, Minecart tracks, stadiums.
