Ok, firstly, thanks to everyone who took the time to write out such detailed posts. I didn’t reply to everybody, but I have read everything!
You guys have spoken, and I’ve reconsidered. I have decided not to make any sort of change to the spawn right now. It just isn’t fair to those who have spent so much time building stuff like nether roads.
As a few people have suggested, we should tear down a lot of the old buildings, preserve the cools ones, and breathe some new life into spawn. I think it’d be fun to make it into some sort of mini-event.
