Inactive Region Destruction

+Region Destruction+
Greetings, players. A region destruction occurs as we attempt to reduce ghost towns and maintain to condense RP to active towns. Everyone is usually effected in this endeavor, whether you're part of the region as a citizen character, own one, or co-own one. Destruction occurs when an Owner of a region is inactive for 6+ months (often becoming de-whitelisted or merely just fading from activity with only 1 or two logins every 2-4 months spanning the 6 months.) and the region is abandoned with no effort by an active Co-Owner to keep it maintained. If the owner doesn't get online and transfer ownership to an active player, the region will have to be deleted with no refund. They will also become victim to server events and destruction. This is a heads up thread though, so while some of these regions won't be immediately ruined, the ones that have been inactive for over 6 months will be wrecked fairly quickly. When a region is destroyed, all the chests and valuable building blocks will be removed. The region builds will become 'ruins' due to obvious lack of maintenance and activity by characters at the region. The abandoned dock ships from the region will be left to server property if the builder of the ship makes no claim for it.

Being active for a short while and disappearing again wont fix the inactivity timer. However, if you transfer the region, the timer will reset to whoever you transfer it to.
+The command to transfer regions is: /domain transfer [region] [player]

A Co-Owner of the region, however, can make an appeal form to maintain the region as long as they can while the Owner's absent. This way, the region can avoid being ruined and the town can continue to be actively running. A regular player cannot appeal to maintain the region they do not Co-Own due to lack of abilities in adding members, etc.


An Owner, Co-Owner or Builder of certain long standing builds of the region can have those builds preserved from destruction while the rest goes to ruins, until another player claims the plots.

Additionally, an Owner can appoint anyone as their heir, to take over Ownership if they go inactive long enough for the region to get onto the Doomed List.
See the update here.


+Form Appeals+

Below are different forms to appeal for different situations regarding a region that's entered the long queue for destruction. Please read all the posts before deciding which form is more suited for you and your region.
Co-Owner's are defined as one person and won't be interchanged to another at all. They're usually the ones actively working on the region and coordinating events/builds/rp, etc. If there is more than one appeal for the region by different Co-Owners, then discuss it among yourselves on who will take up reigns.

+When Co-Owners request to keep the region alive, without destruction, during Owner long gaps of absence- due to taking reigns in keeping the region active with rp, events and/or builds. Forum conversation or thread post below is acceptable.

MC ign:
Co-Owner of region:
Why do you specifically wish to maintain the region and how will you go about it?:

[Write here]
"As the current Co-Owner, I plan to maintain the place through Rp/Events/Building and will keep the region active during the Owners absence. I know that when my interest and activity dwindles on the region, the region will be set back up for destruction because the Owner's not active at all and has not transferred the region to me to reset the timer. I know I can't hand Co-Ownership to another person if I get tired of the region so that they can keep it alive because I took up the responsibility, but I will coordinate the region for the time the Owner's gone."

If there is literally no one still actively doing something with the region as a Co-Owner while the Owner's absent for a long time, regions going to be plopped back to destruction.


+When Owners request transfer to one current Co-Owner through a forum conversation.
Owners can't transfer their regions to any players if they aren't able to log in. They'd have to choose from their current Co-Owners. This goes the same for banned players. Banned players can only use the forum conversation to request a transfer to a Co-Owner. This is to make sure we can track forum accounts to MC accounts. If there is an ounce of suspicion on legitimacy in the requests made (false accounts), it might be declined.

If you're able to log in, then please use the command yourself.


For Owners
MC ign:
Owner of this region:
Co-Owner you wish to transfer to:
[MC ign and forum tag]
"I give the region I own to this Co-Owner. I know that what they do with it won't be dictated by my vision for the region and their plans for it will be their own. If it differs from what we planned, then I can't complain because the region is now their responsibility. I know I cannot later demand to have the region back."

For Co-Owners
MC ign:
Co-Owner of this region:
Owner of region is:
[MC ign and forum tag]
"I plan to accept the region because I will [Insert paragraph of potential plans for the region here.]"


+When you are an Owner or Builder of a region or build (Co-Owner in case of absent Owner) and you wish to preserve a few important buildings before destruction.. Conversation or post below is acceptable.
In some cases, the Owner accepts region destruction, but a builder, owner, co-owner wishes to preserve some builds. They can make an appeal below by filling the form. Appealing to preserve the build (such as a palace, statue, shrine, something important), requires a consent from Owners and Builders alike. (By preserving, means the build stays in place and is not WE'ed out). The build will avoid the process of being ruined. However, if it holds valuable blocks such as diamonds or emeralds and chests- those will be removed. Be sure you know that if someone claims the region, they might modify it. The preservation of a build will carry under server protection until someone claims the plot of the build.

For Owners of a region/Co-Owner of region/Builder of a building in that region

MC ign:
Region involved:
Owner of region: [MC ign and forum tag]
Do you have their approval?:
Builder of build/s: [MC ign and forum tag]

Do you have their approval?:
Building/s you wish to preserve:
Please explain why you believe the build/s should be preserved and what importance they hold:

Are you aware the region will still be destroyed and that in the case if neither Owner or builder approve the builds being preserved, the appeal will be declined?
(On occasions of internal dispute, please sort it out before hand. On occasions where owner is absent- request a Co-Owner to stand in for approval.)

Are you aware the server protection of not ruining the build holds until someone claims the plot the build is on?

+Hmm.. List
[Your regions are inactive, heads up. Please do log in more often if you wish to keep your regions. About 2-3 months of Owner inactivity (some with 2-3 log-ins in that time span, as that's not activity, unless they make it clear they're continuing their projects). An active Co-Owner can appeal to say they're maintaining the region as their priority project. If activity in the region is decent, then region will be sent to the "Safe Zone". It'll still be on the list so that the Owner is aware that if the Co-Owner decides to not maintain the region, it will be sent to the Yikes or Doomed List for evacuation depending on Owner's activity.]

+Somewhat-Safe Zone
[There is an active Co-Owner that's maintaining the region despite an inactive Owner and has appealed to do so. If the Co-Owner decides to drop the region as their priority project due to effort and time, it will be re-sent to the queue for destruction. The Somewhat-Safe Zone relies on the Co-Owner's interest in keeping up the region's activity.]

+Region Destruction Update+

Based on the critique received within the "Inactive Region Destruction Critique" thread, the following change will be made to the current Region Destruction Policy.

The Heir System
Below,, all currently listed Owners and Co-Owners will be tagged.
They, in turn, will put forward a single individual as the heir to their region should the Owner themselves be inactive for four or more months.
Once a region moves into the
Yiiiikes List, both the Owner and listed Heir will be tagged. Upon request of the heir, the Ownership rights of the region will be transfered to them.
From then on, they can put another player forth as the new heir to that region.

Via the Prestige plugin, this happens automatically by selecting someone as the Heir to their House. Once the Owner goes inactive and is dewhitelisted, the House and affiliated regions are automatically transferred to the Heir.

If neither Owner nor heir react before the region moves up onto the
Doomed List, they will receive one final notification.
Failure to respond within one week will result in the destruction of the region conform the Region Destruction policy.


Regardless of being heir or not, any co-owner (or builder) may still request Staff to exclude a few important buildings.
This means that they are not destroyed, but also means that they can be claimed and modified by anyone if not by you.
To aid the co-owner/builder in reclaiming the ruins/remaining buildings, they will be given notice of when the region protection is removed.

The Region List will be re-evaluated over the course of this week, and the regions re-distributed amongst the tiers of Region Destruction.
Any pre-existing agreements made will remain, and be followed up on according to the terms set before the Region Destruction pause.

+FAQ+

Why are regions being deleted?
To maintain an RP active world and less abandoned/ghost towns, players who've left the server for long periods of time and have abandoned their projects will have said projects 'cleaned' up, in a way. This is to make way for new projects and/or to condense projects towards active towns.

How can I save my region?
Transfer it to someone you know will maintain it. The command is listed above.

I bought my region for storing all my things- a personal and private region. I want to keep it but I don't want to share it.
That's your decision. Stay active and you can continue to do so. It's when you're gone for 5+ months, only hopping in once every 3 months and/or de-whitelisted that we have to put our foot down to start cleaning up regions and ghost towns. How about purchasing a "Pocket" for storage instead of a region?

I noticed some Staff members aren't too active in-game, but they get to maintain their regions. You're favoring them more than the players!11!
Hell yea. I'm going easier on Staff Owned Regions because the times they're active on the forums and in-game are times they have to work for the playerbase as a whole. They have very little time to work on their own regions, building and RP wise.

I am upset about losing my region. I don't want to give it away, but I don't have the time for this.
..I'm sorry. Perhaps it's time to let go? Take screenshots for the memories.

My Alt actually bought the Region. I'm pretty active on my Main.
Send me your main account ign and I'll check up on that.


Who's going to destroy the regions?
The Build Team or myself.

I want to set my region up for destruction and ruin earlier than what you have scheduled here.
...Ok. I'll only accept this if the Owner's vying for it. It won't be immediate and will be set up in a queue, but is plausible.

I'm the Owner.. Why can't I give Ownership to any player? Why does it have to be a Co-Owner?
The Command is limited to transffering ownership to Co-Owners.

Who do I send a conversation to for transferring Ownership?

Send a general support request.

What if there's more than one Co-Owner?
Decide among yourselves who wants to take lead.

If you just had it transferred via plugin, we only see the original owner.
We can however change the listed owner, so if Brit can confirm, it can be changed.

As for an example of how the Heir system works:

"Please make the following individuals heirs of these regions.
Hurrnor, Aerochrimtar: Kam as heir
Dwarf, Reserve: Shaolinpunk as heir
Sulfeir: Shankster as heir"

Would put forth Jazzper as Heir for both regions till I can get back or something.
(If I disappear from the face of the planet forever, eh, I trust his judgement on what to do with them.)

So this is an odd thing, and might require some help from staff to remedy, but let me lay out the issue.

Ellievator is listed as the 'owner' of the region known as 'theloa'. She was grandfathered in when I went inactive, and recently she returned the region to me. However, it does not come up under my list of owned regions under the domains list, as soon here.




And here, using the /region info [name] command;



In the end, I would like to see about getting the region 100% put back in my name.

Hey Staff Member I've been trying to add people to the region sungrad so MelodyComplex can rebuild it and so we can use it, however, she cannot build there despite me having added her and having region perms to do so. Has the region been deleted? It says that it's still good to use on the chart.
