Yes, I think full griefing (looting, tnt, lava etc) should be ok - as said, this is the HARDCORE server, not the mediumcore one... If you want to be safe & keep your bases intact, do creative..... IN creative.....

One question though, if/when my/our base gets done over, do we also get a chance to go thru a backup to reclaim our lost stuff? Yes yes, I do realise NBW was a major piece of work done by lots of people with special powers and I've had the chance to admire it now, but if your stuff gets taken or destroyed, shouldn't that be the end of it? Part of being griefed is that you have to start again with whatever you could hide or stuff in your enderchest, and being able to go to a backup for stuff seems..... well, not hardcore.

Thoughts people?

My place has been griefed twice and yes i had to go to a different place but i'm fine with doing it again because it gives you a good start to do it better. Anyway it's not that often that some place gets griefed so i think full griefing should be allowed.

No, hopefully you have made an emergency base with supplies.

Yes. I saw to it myself that nothing was restored for the NBW guys.

You may have heard me talking about rollbacks, here are the only two that I have done on Hardcore server:
1) To redo all the damage to NWB.
2) To restore the world after the crash the other night (Did not include chest/item restore).

As part of the second rollback I restored a handful of chests from a physical backup for some players that were in transit when the server crashed, since they lost all items from the transit period (About 6h worth). The second rollback is unrelated to the NBW incident.

The mods in NBW got their rank well after they joined NBW and because we vote on who should join obviously we will favour certain people/ranks.

Thanks Sori for clearing up the backup issue.

Although frogman's statements begs further questions....
