Wouldn't the "old" imdeity.com be awesome?

    Wait, so everything is gone, even your items in chests in your town plots?

    Now....

    1st of all you are missing the point.
    People who are talking about this subject (and who have experienced it) agree that resets are necessary.
    What I have been trying to point out since the start is that we also have a lack of publicity. This means that through time inevitably our server population will fall.
    Most people are not going to play minecraft for months and months in an extremely active manner (at least not most...)
    That's why we need to have other ways to attract people.

    The reason why I am talking about the server resets is not to say "OMFG STOP RESETTING" but is infact to point out that resets hurt this server a lot due to the fact that we are a city/economy server.
    PvP server's don't feel the pain like we do during map resets (if they get to keep their personal stats).


    Secondly this is really starting to piss me off.
    Most of us talking here have played on other servers, and have liked ImDeity more, that's why we're here. We care for this server. Many of us have donated time into our communities and real money to Deity, so please don't ever tell us to "go play on another server to see what its like" again. Not even joking. You have no rights to say this.


    We are giving constructive criticism, because as we can all observe the server has been in a limbo stage for quite a while. So much that even players themselves are starting to question swapping servers simply due to lack of activity.
    Now how about we scratch our brains together a little instead of barking like mad dogs?

    Next time you tell us to go see other servers, you might not like the fact that many of us will not come back.

    I don't know about the previous reset because I was grounded at the time :p but I know that on one reset every player could keep whatever they could possibly manage to stick into their inventories, and I'm actually not sure how much the resets are necessary at all, the only reason I could see for it is world generation for ores and that stiff and that is done on the mining world anyways and we have good staff that do their best to stop griefers, and resource gathering has been said to keep in mining world so destruction is not a problem, and ores aren't even available in the main world anyways, so if someone could explain to me why resets are needed that would be greatly appreciated

    They are needed for a few reasons. I do not know them all but here are a few. Reset economy, people can have too much money wealth etc. No space, the map could be full. Also, I believe it cuts down on lag as well.

    But, I agree that the server is limbo like said by frenchy and I think resets only make it better. I mean imagine coming onto the server and everybody have 100k... And having no where to build and so on.

    Think of the server like the forest. After a very long time all the trees will be all old and decaying. And there would be no room for new trees to grow. And then deforestation occurs and all the old and decaying trees are all gone. (This represents the reset of the server.) After some time, new trees will grow, healthier and more stronger trees.

    As for the works running out of space, the plugin that stops us from walking father could we not just give it a bigger radius as the space fills? Doing see how it fixes lag as the world stays the same size every time and in fact if all the chunks are not pregenerated before public release would actually add to lag until world filled up, and I'm sure there could be other ways to do an economy dump create fake disasters, oh this" insert fake name here" experienced a hurricane everyone must donate % of dei and an inventory worth of approved items on a list

    Just to make this more clear, the deforastation is the reset. Just saying this because I didn't get it at first.

    This is not fair... A reset for one person? Just because they are rich? If 1 persons money gets reset, everybody's money should get reset unless said person was banned or duping etc

    ... It has to do with patches and updates...
    Being rich means almost nothing on the server, and a person having 100k would still be an extremely small part of the full economy (although now days maybe a more consequent part....)

    But no, resets are not targeted at players guys.
    There are many posts that offer information on this topic during which people were begging the staff to keep stats/money.

    -> If you just look at the main page (like the posts made by Deity) and go to older ones, you can see people talking about the map resets. Those were dark times during which many people left.
    You really should take a look though, it will pretty much answer all of your questions.

    There is another reason that people leave because of resets . They hate "change". To some people, change is a very scary thing. They like it better when everything is the same and everything is well planned out. They hate it when something changes their schedule. But people have to accept the facts that change will always happen. Whether it is good or not, change will always happen. One of the best things of ImDeity is that it is an economy server. So that there is always a climb to the top, trying to get more money than everyone else. In real life, there is also an economy. But some companies are way better and ahead of other companies. There is no way for the smaller companies to be as successful as the big ones. They don't get a reset like we do.

    We should be thankful of the resets because it starts everyone from scratch. It allows everyone to have a chance at getting to the top. In the short-run, resets may seem bad at first. But if you look at it in a long-term perspective, you will see that is a good thing. It allows everyone to start fresh and new.

    We've had 3 resets since I've been here. One shortly after I started playing, one about 8-10 months later, and then the most recent one. The first one I was a little bummed, but understood the reasoning behind it. The second one, was because of 1.3 making so many changes to the game, and to release Kingdoms 2. And the third, most recent one, which was to clear the world for a fresh start after all the dupers that decided it would be fun to ruin the economy by exploiting and in the process caused a lot of veteran players (who dam well should have known better) to get banned for doing it.

    You guys always talk about how many people leave the server from the restarts. But what about all th people who come back? All the sponsors who want to retry making their town, all the less experienced who want a chance to become something, everybody. While I'm glad the server doesn't reset every 2 months I think that the actuall reset is pretty fun and entertaining.

    There will be no reset soon. No one of any importance has said that, and there is no need for one.

    Ok so the Monkey Admin has it, end the silly reset bickering and get back on topic of the old Imdeity :) Sure it would be awesome to go back to it but i mean, look at this new one we have! Everything is finally fully functioning, plugins, economy, enchants, glowstones (so pretty, gotta love those :D ). So what if its quiet? Its a more personal experience, you get to know everyone, not just wander around talking to trees and NPCs like a noob. I would love to see some of the old towns still around though, *sniffles* I miss Galaxy :'( to walk around that town again would be truly awesome :) But Saleska, dont live in the past, it only ruins the future, Imdeity is moving onwards and upwards and there is no stopping now :D

    I've been on imdeity for 16-17 months now the first reset i went throw was exciting like going to a brand new planet with more exploring and stuff and we were aloud to transfer over 1 chest full of items with a certain amount of each item I personally thought that was a great idea than the second reset come i knew it was going to happen but what i was a bit disappointed in was that we didn't get to keep some of our items (now to my understanding on the second reset there were big problems with getting all the CUSTOM plugins back up and running which did get some players leaving not many new ones joining) and another reason is minecraft is not purchased as much as it used to there are not ten of thousands of people buying copies of minecraft each day like there used to be and the newbs that are still buying minecraft are just little kids with no experience in minecraft at all then they come straight onto the exciting online world which just overwhelms them so much that they can't appreciate minecraft growing as much all the older players. the updates now to my feeling are about making the end part of minecraft better not the little things like going from killing sheep to get wool to now just shearing them, going at a running pace all the time to being able to sprint

    if you couldn't be bothered to read all that i'll summarize it for
    people getting bored of minecraft and looking for something else (^^^^^) people buying minecraft learning how to play properly than finding a quality server like imdeity (vvvvvvv)
