You were banned by console because when you broke the wood it was a house that is a grief trap.
Unfortunately there is nothing we can do. You will have to wait out your ban.
Next time you come up against something like that in a mine I suggest you retreat and find another location to come out.
If grief has been done to your home as your friend stated in game, please let me know when you return to the server or any other staff that is available.

You have been granted a final chance and I have unbanned you. Merry Christmas.
Please review the rules as it has been a while since you played.

Since I have been watching the progress of this build, I have no doubt that you will do it justice and finish it in your exemplary building style.

Project name: Kansas
I named this place Kansas because itís about making as many functioning farms without red stone as possible in one place and the Kansas flag has a nice farm on it.
Project location (Live map link, coordinates, not biome, include world name):
New Member world
Live map http://www.opticraft.net/map/smp/#/814/64/1949/-2/3/0
Interior pictures (multi levels built underground) http://imgur.com/a/wESVS
Contributors: dogwell; cora; penguin; b1ueJ0ker, Lipperdie; Grootensliven; Gavin; MikeJones; and many others over the years it took to work this place into what it is now.
Mayor / zone owner (Only one - this is the zone owner): Roza
Approximate dimensions: x 664 Ė 897 z 2088 Ė 1841
Requested Flags: item frame protection
Number of active residents (if applicable):1
Number of completed, decorated and furnished buildings:2
What state is the project in, and what are your plans for its future, if any:
Currently the tree farm and the first level are mostly complete, the barn has to be finished, the house and garage are complete, the gold / XP farm at the bottom still needs a lot of work, may add a slime farm, villagers? Cactus, purpur flowers, I will build farms that are do not use red stone and that look like a ranch or as nice as possible. I intend to close up areas that are not as nice to look at, and decorate the user friendly areas.
Why should we grant this project protection?
This is my home now, and I have been griefed several times. I canít protect it all with ps as the space is just not feasible, goes to bedrock level. Even now there is a bridge built to my island that was built without my knowledge or consent and all I could do was remove the blocks actually attached to my man-made island.

Your last ban was by __pORKCHOPS who is no longer staff. You have a lot of grief bans. Please tell me why we should give you another chance.

first a complete wipe is off the table and discussing it further creates division among players, so lets move on to the economy
I believe that having a player based economy will not equalize the playing field, those who are adapt at redstone afk massive farms will still prevail and set the rates, usually beyond what regular players can afford and it will do nothing to eliminate or control these massive builds. It was pointed out to me that my public guardian farm has generally provided a limitless supply of these blocks for the entire server, and that guardian farms are massive and ugly. I built the farm and my private one because I wanted to build an ocean monument, and I personally felt the market price of the blocks was to high as well as the price set by other players. If we were points driven (as I understand the proposed change, although my view point may be incorrect), and player trade driven I would still have made the farms, maybe taken a little longer but I would have made them all the same.
I would like to see a market economy, I chose this server not just because of who played on it but because it offered the best of both worlds, survival and economy combined to leave the choice up to the individual player as to how they want to play the game. Yes some people went farm crazy and built massive redstone run farms, others ignore the market and play on survivor basis only, and some do a combination of those choices. I believe that a points system will not change this except to limit the players ability to obtain blocks previously purchased at market. The point is, this system allows players to decide how they want to play the game and that its their own choices that make the game fun or boring.
someone asked what it is that I as player who voted no to the complete wipe do to keep from getting bored, its simple, I look at interior design magazines, and wonder if I could possible do that in minecraft, or I watch a rerun of an old favorite movie (now you know where Astoria came from) and I think, that would be fun, after google searches to see if it was already done on mc, I discovered really not so great attempts, so I made my own attempt. Now I am trying to build as many farms in one place redstone free. they are all manual, except the iron farm that I bought and built around
and at the same time make it appealing to look around the entire place. When I take a walk or a drive and I see some really interesting building, or maybe just one aspect of that building, I keep it in mind in case I can use that feature in a build. sometimes they work out great and others fail miserable, but I keep trying because I like it.
I also like to play here because I feel safe playing this game with my grandchildren on this server. We live far apart and this server and game has made it possible to be involved in their lives. Opticalza has made a terrific server and there have been many staff over the years who have helped along the way, some ideas were successful and some not so much. I believe all have added value to the community and made it the server I enjoy now, so thank you all.
On a final note: Before you vote for change, we must ask ourselves what is the purpose of this change and will it be effective in accomplishing our goal? So I ask you, what is the purpose of changing to a point system, what are the specific new rules and regulations to accompany it, and why do you think it will achieve your goal?

I only have one question DeeKay
currently new 1.8... blocks are only available in market or by crafting as we had no expansion of the worlds an no new worlds added when these blocks were added, if you propose to remove the market and not create new world, or expand borders on current worlds, where do people get these blocks at a reasonable cost? Crafting is quartz heavy while mining in their biomes plentiful.
« on: March 20, 2016, 10:24:24 pm »
to answer your question I do like to mine and gather most blocks. that's mine craft. I do like the ability to buy blocks at the same time. I also prefer to play on Opticalza's server because it is the best I have seen.

I apologize I didn't intend to type "stupid" and lets not forget to focus on the positive of what I said as well, which is that I am willing to compromise, and to do what it takes to help (all you have to do is ask), and I am in support of you changing the economy even though I rely on our current market to get things in a hurry when I am in the middle of building or things I hate to gather/farm myself.
« on: March 20, 2016, 07:27:15 pm »
well I agree Cora, I like the current economy, I don't and wont do stupid games etc. to get points, however, I am willing to compromise as they are not doing a complete wipe and will transfer my funds to the new economy. but your right in the new economy I wont be able to buy anything anymore and that will hurt the quality of my builds.
« on: March 20, 2016, 05:39:22 pm »
in that case I have no further objections, and since a complete wipe is off the table I vote yes (a complete wipe is still a no vote)
« on: March 20, 2016, 03:41:05 pm »
one question I just donated for money, new economy it goes away, will there be compensation under the new system given to those who donated either by cash or top voter?

I have seen some people try to show the server in videos and some were good, some not so much. Creating a few videos and uploading to U tube - is there a cost? if the video goes viral, how many people have now heard and seen images of the server? Your very talented and there are a lot of talented members in the community, how about putting a group together to try to come up with free advertising and promotional methods, developing a plan and once approved implementing it?
