Minecraft Vanilla Server - RESET

I've noticed the server has gotten quiet lately, so I'm wondering, would you guys want another map reset to rekindle the server?

2 things will make me play again. First is my real life calming down a bit. A 2 month old and a 2 year old that isn't sleeping well is giving me no time to play. And once 1.8 drops the optimizations should make it easier to play on the laptop so that adds in some more options.

The last reset was the night of Oct 26th/27th 2013, so the yearly reset time is coming up in about two and a half months. If 1.8 drops before then, I hope there will be consideration of a reset for that patch, as the copious new resources and improvements are things I'm keen to check out. Alternately, if the patch isn't until a short time after that, I'd say we ought to wait for that patch. No point doing a reset just before new content comes out and then waiting a year with the same old, same old.

Honestly I'm waiting to play until the reset or 1.8 drops. I feel like I was left in the dust with all my builds

Yeah I think a lot of people are waiting till 1.8, which I think will be the natural "reset" time as 1.7 was for this map.

1.8 should be here quickly. they are technically working on the final bug fixes for it ( despite the fact that they keep adding in new features) . I don't know that 1.8 itself is when we should reset or if we should wait a little longer than that to drop the destruction day. I don't think that we will make it to a full year but we didn't last time either. I do recall seeing somewhere that some of the new resources will generate in terrain that has already been explored, water temples most specifically.

lots and lots of neat new things coming out and it is always hard to decide on a reset date but I do find that a shorter notice is best for the announcement because with the map being available for download after the reset there isn't a huge reason to drag things out.


I'd be open to resetting is what I'm getting at, just not sure it is completely needed yet.

I'm certainly waiting for 1.8 -- I stopped playing months and months ago (I want to say, back in April) because I was convinced that 1.8 would come out, and we'd just reset then. No point *wholly* wasting time, right? ;)

Anyway, I'm impatiently awaiting a final release on that front before I'll be back on the server in earnest. I might be convinced to hop on if there were an event or something, but Tater would probably have to clue me in on that front, given how poorly I monitor the forums ;). Hopefully the MC programmers get their bugs sorted out and aren't distracted by any other shiny things so we can move the heck on...

The Ville Council will convene and decree a reset date when the time is right. :mrgreen:

We won't be resetting BEFORE 1.8 is released. Once Mojang gives us a release date for 1.8 we'll be able to start talking about what is appropriate.

Seriously, in re: Dog, it would also just would be good to know he's alright and see if he needs anything. I know his life was getting busy, but it's been 10 weeks since he visited the forums last and that's unusual for him.

Except that they keep adding things like armor stands and colored beacons and red sandstone.
