well, yes, i'm all for a reset.
with following desires.
give iron or gold set or two.
no other freebies.
and that is about it. easy enough with adding chests near spawn and using lockette to name them according to login name. so each one gets same set and thats it.
mc cash? nah. who needs it? and unless shops are reset by admin, it gives unfair advantage to first ones since they can sell stuff and buy stuff and if chest gets full or empty? tough luck.
also prices should be checked to ensure that selling price of one chest isn't below buying price of other. it's happened before and people just loot cheaper chest empty and then demand resets on both.
so.. if chests are put in, limit them to basic survival stuff. food, wood, torches/coal and such. no fancy blocks or diamond items. at least not at start.
also some better means to protect buildings should be considered besides factions.
their problem is that other factions can claim the land and poof goes your house.
also claimed land is hell to heaven, which is bit unnecessarily big area.
and.. in case of well.. dunno, creative? care should be taken since that is basically free unlimited influx of anything to the world.
so.. consider changing extreme donator creative benefit to flying and something else, maybe? and toggleable by player so that it's use can be more free.
