Hm. If someone did start a Kickstarter project, what would it be? Would it be getting enough money to build a computer that could be the dedicated server? Or would it be something else entirely?

The advantages there are that the hardware is someone else's concern. They are responsible for the power costs, the bandwidth etc. It seems like a good option to me. My upload speed is kinda terrible so that was another concern I had for a bottleneck. Plus too, using a dedicated Minecraft server with tonnes of memory and processors that are designed for server use is probably better than me slinging together a desktop and hoping it all works out.
I'm strongly considering this option now. I've got a few questions and wanna do more research but maybe i'll get something like that going in the future.
20:34:13 [INFO] Plugins (29): Spout, Vault, Multiverse-Core, PermissionsEx, Stargate, AntiCreeper3, NarrowtuxLib, TheMonkeyPack, iConomy, Showcase, xAuth, CraftBookCommon, Permissions, CommandHelper, Runecraft, NoCheat, Herochat, CraftBookCircuits, CustomCrafting, MultiHome, Giant Trees, raftBookMechanisms, WorldEdit, Multiverse-Portals, CommandBook, LWC, WorldGuard, dynmap, CraftBookVehicles
We've had as many as 7-8 users at once (I host this on my own, connection is a 50MB down/5 MB up I specifically upgraded to for Minecraft hosting), but truth be told, we're lucky to have 2-3, sometimes 1, sometimes none. XD So I'm by no means a big server, but still.
I should still be able to offer some pointers for server setup. Let me know if you have any other questions.
This is such a good idea, i hate when i go onto a server and there is younger players who just grief when im offline and its got to the point where i play solo and minecraft is just better with a bunch of mates .
And apologies if I misunderstood it but thats the general 'vibe' I'm getting.
As for your original question, there are lots of servers out there, but I'm not sure of any open and public ones that are restricting young people. You would likely have to find one on minecraft forums and apply as they'll be whitelisted.
whats up with that?
this thing is still running but lacks in players. as far as i can tell there are rarely more then 2players online.
it says in invite only but i guess its kinda outdated..
map isnt that fresh but lots of space still available
maybe repopulate it?
Sorry to bother everyone, I am looking for guidance and do not wish to post spam or annoy anyone. But I am at a loss here. I was wondering if someone could point in the right direction to where I might find a few (max four or five for now) mature Adult players for my free minecraft server. I will not give any more details since this would be obviously annoying for the Moderators of this forum. I thank you all for your patience.
Yeah i am having the same issue with playing with kids about 15-12. Im 21 and if you get that server up i wanna join. im tired of the mucking about on the younger servers.
I was googling around, and well found your thread : ) I actually run a Minecraft.... well Tekkit server that is aimed at responsible (ie adult) users. Its been up for about 3 months now and is privately listed with a decent amount of users. Sorry if you guys aren't in to Tekkit, but i recommend it. It uses things like buildcraft and redstone and allows from some pretty cool things to be built with logic gates etc. I was googling around to see if there is a listing board for adult minecraft, and it doesn't look there really is... I tried posting the server on a general public listing for 2 days a while back, and that was all I could take - you get some pretty terrible minecraft players that way.
or the ip:
any way 30 players dedicated yada yada its on the blog
my name in game is ekemsend as well
Oh yeah I should add that I try and keep up with what players want, I really try and create an enjoyable place to play. If you guys know of plug-ins or other ways to make the gameplay more interesting or whatever please let me know : )

I hope a lot of people shift over to that once it's out.

Let's pretend the Tekkit mods are the US government (both famous for distributing resources that don't belong to them) and the Forestry dev(s) responsible for the exploding bees and map corruptions are the Taliban (both have a love for retaliation via explosives). The US government, thinking everyone in the world agrees how super important they are, acts like assholes for way too long. They steal the world's resources and wave their dicks in the faces of the middle east (aka, the Minecraft modding community). Naturally, a bunch of Arabs, Afghans and Pakistanis get pissed off with the US abusing their land, and before long the Taliban are involved. However, the Taliban don't respond by killing soldiers or politicians, instead they respond by blowing up a building containing hundreds of thousands of civilians. The fact that the US government acted like dicks in the first place does not make it OK to make innocent people suffer.
DISCLAIMER: I do NOT want to get into a debate about the US government, 9/11, the Taliban or the authenticity of the 'most widely recognised' version of events from that horrible day. I will not respond to comments about 9/11, that's not the point of this example and you know it.
All this achieves in both situations is that both sides of the argument blame the other. Nobody will ever admit they are wrong because they are both in the wrong... and as with every bullshit situation like this... the only people to suffer are those who had no input, choice or power in the original decision making.
It's time both sides of the Forestry dispute stop being dicks so we can get this resolved for the benefit of the community.
