I think that you should be able to claim ONE 60/60 area in the wild, so you can have a base and not get griefed. These areas would have the same flags as town residences. BUT here's the kicker. It cannot be done within 100 blocks from the spawn, and cannot be placed within 40 blocks from eachother. (<--Not sure how that one will help, but it just seems smart) I know this could turn out bad, but if the right changes are made with it, then maybe it could turn out well. This is more of a possible idea than a legitimate "This should be added!" type thing, as it could be abused. Still, something to look into.
