If you've been on the server...you know we are currently Vanilla running a temporary map. When we switch maps we were allowing 1 large chest of items for each person to be brought over. This is only while we wait for CraftBukkit to update to 1.7.2. Unfortunetly, it has been taking much longer than expected due to the fact the 1.7.2 Minecraft update was enormous. Bukkit has to write and fix around 220K lines of code then make sure it all fixes properly with some bugs Minecraft has itself. Now it has come to the point where, well, vanilla needs to go. There are a few options available for us...
1) The server could stay vanilla and wait until CraftBukkit updates to 1.7.2. This could take another month for all we know. They don't give updates s to how far along they are. One large chest of items will still be brought to the new map.
2) Each player could store their items in one large chest like the original plan, switch over to a permanent map running Spigot. This way we can have plugins and such. With Spigot, items from 1.7 such as Red Sand, Stained Glass, etc. will not be available. Neither will the generated biomes. Your chests from the vanilla map will be brought to the permanent map when Bukkit updates, this way it prevents you from losing any items that are 1.7 only. If we were to do this option, to find 1.7 biomes when CraftBukkit updates, you would have to find them in newly generated chunks. A decent, very helpful started kit will be available.
3) We could store 1 large chest of each players items like mentioned before and go back to our original 1.6.4 map with CraftBukkit. This would only be temporary. When CraftBukkit was to update, we would switch over to a permanent map. On the 1.6.4 map, we have a section for players to store 2 large locked chests of items. If you do not have chests there, you are allowed to get your own chests. When we update to the permanent map, the 1.6.4 chests and 1.7 chests will all be available for you. The 1.7 chests will not be available on the 1.6.4 chests. A decent, very helpful starter kit will be available.
Options 2 and 3 result in the server having no PvP, no griefing, no raiding. Chests will be locked and blocks will be logged. You will have your ranks back and players can start having their stats logged to be ranked up. There will be an economy system once again with warps, homes, chest shops, etc.
