I am curious. At what point would a village be deemed abandoned? I call them villages because they are small, uninhabited and obviously do not have a warp.
This question is not about any village in particular. Just a general question about how long a village is stagnant before it is deemed abandoned.
If it is a player made area:
The town created will be permanent unless 1 of 3 circumstances occur.
1. If the Mayor of a town becomes banned from the server.
2. If the Mayor of a town does not log in for quite some time without notice (3 months at the minimal).
3. If all residents in the town either leave the town, leave the server, or get banned.
If any of these occur, then the Mayor will forfeit all rights of his town. If there are still residents in his town then there will be a discussion over who will become the new Mayor of said town. If there are no active residents in the town, then all buildings and structures will be open for either destruction or remodeling (With a Senior OP or higher rank’s approval) by anyone who wishes to claim it. Items in chests left behind by inactive players are to be moved by an Op or higher to a safe place either within the town or nearby it. Items left behind by banned players are forfeit to destruction. They may NOT be looted or considered ‘free’. They are to be destroyed by an Op or higher.
If it is a generated village, then as long as nobody else has claimed it, you can take it.
So, in short, ask a OP or higher to check logs on the buildings. If they indeed seem completely abandoned, and the owner hasn’t been on in the time range that we deem inactive, we can most likely give the reins to you, if no one in said village wants it.
