Hello, took a break from minecraft to do some other stuff. I come back and notice my residence on smp9 is pretty much destroyed and really no longer mine. After some reading on residences I notice this...Any player who does not sign-in to any Empire server for a period of 15 days is derelict, meaning their residence can be unclaimed at any time. This does not apply to active supporters, even if they have been away for more than a month.If you are going to be gone for longer than 15 days let us know the reason and we will not reclaim your residence. The best way to do this is to PM Bigdavie, shaunwhite1982, IcecreamCow and Maxarias on the forums.Any player who is permanently banned will have their residence reset and lost after 7 days at the minimum. The 7 days allows time for a banned player to appeal the ban if the ban was in error. If you successfully appeal a ban that was not in error, you will be purged: this includes your residence being unclaimed.If you were a Supporter and claimed multiple res's before you downgraded you will not lose your res if you follow the normal derelict policy.So, guess that is that. I hope someone enjoyed destroying what I think was one of the best residences on the server. It is my fault that It didn't occur that there was a time limit on my residence. This is the main problem when you try to build anything on someone else's server. The only solution is to either build my own server or wait for a more reliable solution. I had a lot of fun on empireminecraft and met lots of good people. Take care and enjoy destroying the rest of my stuff.Ken.
