Recently, i've been seeing alot of "I put signs up saying "Please don't grief"". This is like telling someone with an uncontrollable twitch to stop twitching.It won't work.So i'm going to give you the correct steps to avoiding griefers. There are no 100% safe times but you can lower the chances of it happening.Step 1: How To Make A Base... Properly.I see alot of people building very close to spawn in the wilderness. This just makes you griefer bait.... Or food. Probably food.You need to go atleast 1k blocks out. It's best if you go 3k out, though, or even leave the pre-generated circle.If you can face the lava, the ghasts and the holes in the ground, make a nether trip. One block in the nether is eight blocks in the overworld - making overworld travel alot faster. Remember to hide your path. If possible, install Rei's Minimap and waypoint the route.Step 2: Concealing your base.You can build stuff you care about in the wild as long as it is a long way out. Otherwise, sadly, you can't do this without getting griefed. Hide your base. Cover it in whatever material it resides on to hide it from the live-map, as a sort of Camouflage. (<--- This is near impossible to work in a fairly big or big outpost)Only take members you trust to your base.Step 3 (Optional): Buy Supporter.This is optional because not everyone can do this. But, as you all probably know, even the basic supporter package (iron) comes with /hide. This command hides you from the livemap, making it less likely for griefers to find your base when you're online. This isn't exactly going to work 100%, but it does the job 90% of the time.If your base grows into a public outpost, there will be members without supporter - unless you accept supporter-only members.Sometimes, griefer recovery is fun and brings the community together, and also brings out who the community really are. But alot of the time, it's a pain in the backside and minimizing the chances are the best way to go about it. Infact, it's the only way ._.That was my guide to avoiding getting griefed. I hope you enjoyed reading this Wall O' Text and, even better, it works for you.
