Something similar has been said by almost everyone who has come onto emc, at least once:"Why can't I get on this res? ""This res is never finished... ""I wish I had a spawn plot :/ ""This res is empty... are they ever going to finish?""This person has too many spawn plots."All of these are in regards to the residences surrounding /spawn on each server------------These are the number of spawn residences that are 'obvious' they are incomplete or empty:smp-1 | 5/8smp-2 | 2/8smp-3 | 3/8smp-4 | 4/8smp-5 | 1/8smp-6 | 1/8smp-7 | 3/8smp-8 | 5/8smp-9 | 0/8 (at first glance)utopia | 7/831/80 ...that's 39% (over 1/3) of spawn reses that look incomplete 'just at first glance'--------------If someone teleports to an smp, the spawn reses are the first things an individual sees.The spawn reses (and the players on that server) are the major, crucial factors of whether an individual likes the look of that smp or not.--So why are so many spawn reses incomplete?The main factor is prior supportership and derelict status...The majority of the spawn reses used to be owned by individuals who first got them when the server was released... but now are mostly owned by staff, supporters, or individuals with perm protection.----------------How can we enforce an individual - builds on his/her residence without breaching derelict status/supportership?Residence completion verification and progress status - could be one idea.-After initial residence transfer (transferring to alts doesn't reset the counter) the individual will be given 1 month to start building ... if the residence has yet to have anything built on it - the ownership becomes void-If the residence appears abandoned (and incomplete) they will be given a notice and if they don't make significant building progress within the extended time period their residence will be moved and the residence will become available.-If the residence is complete (or near complete) (or significant change and is still being worked on) it can be added to the 'completed spawn residence' list....-If a prior completed res is going under construction (and is abandoned) the monthly notice re-applies and their completion status is removed-If a residence is complete move flag should be enabled (questionable)-If a residence is not complete move flag may be turned off*If it is abandoned/not complete/apparent 'trollified'/empty the residence won't be 'reset', but will be moved to another location----------------Another option could be spawn res taxes .... you log on you pay your 'taxes' every 15days/30days ...if you don't your res is considered abandoned. Suggestion Redacted -Elite----------------Lastly, could be res voting - if an owner of a residence not on the completed list (regardless of derelict status) gets too many removal votes, the owner is notified ... The owner may then try to progress the build and then do a vote submission, notifying all the individuals who voted on that residence, that he/she "worked on it - and to re-submit a vote if he/she improved" ... if the majority is no, it will add to a review count .... after 3 negative reviews the res is auto moved... if the vote is yes then the voting process is reset for that individual -----------------Those are just my suggestions...I personally have perm protection at my spawn res, but if there's a newer policy in place that requires me to finish a build - I will do it. (and I feel something should be done for the other spawn reses too)If any of you have a different suggestion or like one of my suggestions, please comment on it.
