    The reason i am suggesting this is because skyblock feels really un-legit now. I won't reveal any names, but one person had 28 creeper spawners, 28 pigman spawners and 28 enderman spawners. He could get infinite gold from that. Another person apparently has 64 pigman spawners! :eek: and another person showed me 64 beacons. Not to mention the lag that tends to occur, and the server is always full. Everyone is trying to get levels rather than actually making what should be a nice and presentable island, and it seems that everybody has a beacon. Some stone ranks that i've never even seen before are advertising that they're selling a beacon, and i don't know where they're getting all these items from. I don't know about the rest of you, but i miss beacons being rare. Saying something like "i have a beacon" used to mean something, but now if you said that, everybody else in the lobby would say "so have i".
    So here's the suggestion; we make a new skyblock server alongside the current one, which would look like this;
    2015-01-16_12.41.21.png
    The only difference would be that there are 2 diamonds instead of three, one titled skyblock 1, and the other titled skyblock 2.
    The new server would run the same way, only you have to get everything from scratch, and yourself. No drop parties from staff would be active that would give people 15 zombie spawners, or 27 beacons, and if you want to get a beacon, you'll have to go to the nether and fight for one.

    Benefits of the new server:
    - Your previous island will remain on the other server, so you will not lose your current island.
    - Everybody will start from scratch.
    - There would be less lag, because nobody will have animals or would be 150,000 blocks out.
    - It will reduce the number of players on each server.
    - It gives people the chance to try something new without losing their current island.
    A server reset was suggested a while ago by i think logbot, but nobody was for it as they didn't want to lose their current progress, but if a new server was to be added, you could keep your progress whilst starting fresh on a new server :)

    I agree with sky block becoming so un-legit.
    I think all the fun is sky block is being vanilla, but with a crazy amount of mob spawners and beacons I don't see it happening.

    Oh, and if a new server DOES get added, it'll be the perfect time to finally make skyblock 1.8! \o/

    I'll help in any way that i can, but i imagine it'll be as simple as installing another plugin.

    Would players even still play on Skyblock 1 if Skyblock 2 gets added? Or do you guys just not want to lose your work?
    Because how I see it atm: Skyblock 2 gets added = noone is on Skyblock 1 anymore = no reason to have Skyblock 1 = Skyblock 1 gets removed

    No, the people who want skyblock 1 can stay on there. People can then choose which island they would like to play on. I personally want it because skyblock is currently in chaos. There are people with multiple stacks of spawners which is making things like enderpearls, gold and bones worthless, and even people with stacks of beacons. Other people want the chance to play on a different island and maybe invite different people, and it would be a way to combat lag, as there would be maybe rather than 160 people on skyblock at one time, there will be perhaps 50 people on skyblock 2 and 110 on skyblock 1, and less people means less chunks loaded which means less spawners, redstone, lag machines, animals and villagers. I think everybody would benefit from this. I have asked around in-game as well, and everybody agreed, and looking at the poll, 17 votes for it and none against it, i think this would be a way to bring skyblock back to its former glory.
    If they're updating factions, a game that peaks at maybe 30 players at a time, then why wouldn't they want to update a game that peaks at almost 200 at a time? :)

    So should we just run a full world reset? Or do we just add another server. A reset would be good to take out the AFK Islands, and it reduces lag, it can help @superxsnap , and we'll have less complaints from people.

    I don't think resetting the world would be a good approach. This would upset more people than it would help.
