I have seen this suggested before (at least a month ago or so) but i would like to bring this suggestion back to light along with an addition to it. any feedback will be highly appreciated!
Putting the suggestion in a single sentence:
Remove a player’s claims if this person goes in an extended period of inactivity.
Now i do understand that this hasn’t been done so people dont lose their progress upon leaving for a while, that sometimes they have reasons for long inactivity periods, however, if a player has a lot of progress and has put a lot of time in survival, what are the chances that this player doesn’t use forums? small right? based on this logic i think that there should be an exception on this and that is a sub category for survival where people shall announce beforehand that they will go in a period of inactivity, upon doing so staff can “whitelist / protect” this person’s progress on survival. the most common thing i have seen in survival are people who are new to the server, learn how to claim and spend maybe an hour or so and then leave to never come back, leaving behind a claim that has no progress at all. once again and i think this bares repeating if a player is dedicated and / or active in MunchyMC it is most likely that this person has a forums account, thus making it a way to weed out this players who have only spent a claim and around 1 hour of play time into the server in order to wipe them.
