1st idea:Okay something that has bothered me for a while about EMC is that unless you pay money you can't use a block on the server. That block being TNT.Now before you start commenting this post trying to tell me why its like this don't. I already know that its mainly to prevent griefers from having an easier time. I am okay with that.My problem is that I have been playing on the server for quite a while and I still can't use TNT for helping clear out areas instead of wasting a lot of time and durability of picks/shovels or having to enlist the help of a diamond supporter to either travel out far enough to an area just to have them use the TNT.I came up with an idea a long while ago and sent the admins (at the time you could contact both) the idea and they seemed to either disliked the idea or forgot about it. Since I keep seeing suggestion threads about this or that it got me motivated to create this one to see what other players think.The idea is that after being on EMC long enough or active long enough you should be able to get the right to use TNT. Now they might think this just takes away from having more people become diamond but just listen for a second. The idea was that if you want to use TNT right away when you join the server you will have to pay for diamond membership in order to get it. And thus be able to claim more res's utopia perks ect. However, if you can't afford or don't want to get a diamond membership just to use TNT you have to wait for it.I would think if a player is willing to stick around or hasn't gotten into major trouble for a long time since they joined then they should probably be low risk for using TNT to grief. I have already seen other players grief without the use of TNT or lava and it didn't seem to slow them down all that much. I have also seen diamond supporters get into trouble for breaking the rules (which makes no sense cause they are paying money and still disobeying the rules).Another thing that either could be added to this idea or something to maybe help support this would be for a player who has been on long enough would have to send in an appeal to be granted the use of TNT. Such as getting a license in the real world basically. After you have been on/active long enough you get to send in a little application to a mod asking to be granted the use of TNT and they check your background like any bans for griefing or something and make a judgement call. This is just something I thought about recently maybe to sway the admins into allowing regular users the use of TNT it might not actually be a good idea since I haven't thought to much about this one.Oh and also in the next update there will be quite a few more use's for TNT such as TNT minecarts and such. So it would be kinda annoying to get the update on here and have some of the updates mean nothing to regular players because they can't use the TNT.2nd idea:Another thing that falls under the veteran players idea is the use of becoming invisible on live map. Same idea as the TNT idea I just mentioned but in this case after being on long/active enough you get the use to hide yourself from live map. Also the same as the TNT idea if you want to be able to hide right away pay for iron to diamond membership to be able to use it right away.I have been the victim of griefers many times in the past because a friend or two of mine (who are supporters) invite me out to their base and because im on live map if I spend to long out there and a griefer see's it they tend to travel out to that area and grief the place. Iv lost monster grinders, items, and even been harassed by players all because they could see me on live map and figured they would go and use it to their advantage. All to the point to where I lost quite a bit of interest in traveling out to the wild for the fact eventually a griefer will see me out there and want to go exploring why I am out there so much. Or to the point where I have to have live map open not to find how to get back from where I am but to check to see if any players on live map are coming my way incase they might be wanting to come and mess with a friends or my base.Now I have thoroughly thought these over and they seem like a good ideas to me. What do you guys think? And maybe some mods/admins could comment and let me know what they think.How to determine veteran players? Well I have thought about this as well and even though im not 100% sure about the time limit I think maybe if a player has been on/active at least a year (365 days) they can be considered a veteran player. Since I have seem some players tend to get bored or tired of emc within a year and leave. (and some new players tend to leave after not being active for 10 days and losing their res) So this might help promote more players staying or encourage more players to come.I remember hearing a while back something about an update to live map kinda helping make it so that players couldn't see just anyone on live map or something but well I haven't seen that for a while so I figured I would bring this up as maybe an alternative to that idea if its no longer feasible or to difficult to implement or maybe for this to help that idea.
