So, pretty much, on the nether thing, you all seem to be forgetting the ratios of nether to overworld and have already claimed what there is if you've done it on a 1:1 ratio instead of 8xoverworld=1xnether? So we'll be screwed joining late anyway?
On redstone, we get the thing about not disrupting the server, really we do. Are we even allowed to run rail?
As to a separate game on the server, well, I'll ask the others, but really it was wanting to be able to be on the same server as other people for trade, etc that appeals. You know, just like the union used to do? But we get if some of the stuff we do is too sophisicated or complex for those who just want to build pretty buildings. We'll get back to you considering that you all seem to have pretty much made the rules and exploited the available area in a fashion designed to deliberately ostracise us
