Hey, guys.A few of you might recognize me from SMP7, but mostly this post is directed towards the staff. I'd like to start off by saying that I'm not leaving because of the community. Overall, the people here have been great. A bit quiet, perhaps, but friendly and accepting on the whole. This is also not a rant against the staff, but simply to the staff, so that they have an idea of where I'm coming from and can take this as a kind and constructive way for me to criticize the server, so that things can change for the future.It is time for me to say goodbye, at least for now. And here's why.Since I started here on SMP7, I have been griefed not once, not twice, but three times, and a potential fourth that doesn't really count since it was in the wastelands. Again, not holding the community responsible, but I can't keep rebuilding like this. Do I have the resources? Yeah, and if I didn't I could get them. But I don't want to rebuild. The first time, I lost a lot of stuff, and it took a long time to get everything back. I spent weeks gathering resources to replace the ones I had lost. The second time, I was frustrated because I lost spawners, which are definitely irreplaceable, and my builds had been wrecked. So I relocated, even though I had an ideal spot that I had found. But this last time was just the last straw. It wasn't even as major of a grief as the last two, but it was enough to push me over the edge, so to speak. I became frustrated.And so, I think it's time that I left.I may come back sometime. I hear that some form of land protection is in the works by the dev team, so maybe if that really works out, then I might come back. I also feel some regret that I wasn't much of a part of the EMC group. I felt like I didn't have the time to connect properly with the people here, so maybe I'll come back when I have more time to dedicate to a community like this.But as it is, I bid you all adieu. It's been fun meeting some of you, and I wish this server the best. Hopefully this thread will influence the staff towards making the decision to make the Frontier a safer place in the future, and maybe will spare some people some heartache as well. Good luck and happy building, Empire members!
