Land claims have been quite the issues as of late. The rules have not changed, folks. Please, read carefully. All invalid land claims will be removed within the next few weeks. So read carefully.
NO floating claims.
We've never allowed floating claims as a valid land claim. They shouldn't be ignored (put in a /ticket if you find one) but they are not valid. Why? Because players on the ground with tiny view distance can't see them. We don't require players to have gaming computers to play here. Think of those playing on potatoes. Please fix your floating claims.
MARK THE SURFACE
If you're building underground or in the sky - please mark the surface. It's a requirement, always has been. While you may not mind if someone builds above or below you, someone else might. We've had quite a few situations lately where someone puts in a lot of work into their surface build, goes to make a mining center and find an elaborate base. Save time for yourself and other players by following build rules and marking the surface.
I also want to add that if you were building in an area and players have moved in (because you didn't mark up the area), as long as they're following the 32 block rule they're good. Please do not ask them to leave. They did nothing wrong.
Other people play here too. Let people know you're building in an area by making it so obvious, it's not even a question if someone is in the area.
