Hey peeps!

So after having as many of you respond to the recommendation thread for the November-December period, it appears the popular choice was the community build option! Now, Christmas is just slightly over a month away at the time of this post, however to get a better idea of what we should do I will once again create a poll and list some options that we haven't done before for you all to decide.

Option 1: Christmas Ornaments

The gist of this idea is that we will build a massive tree in a snow biome. Then we will ask players to go to the Creative world and build ornaments (anything the player desires, could be candy canes, wreaths, TARDIS, ornamental balls, dragons, etc) to be "hung" from the tree. They will most likely be of a specific size (for example: 20x20x20 limit) as to fit as many as possible onto the tree. Whether 3D or Pixel art is up to the player. We will then World Edit them onto the tree and showcase everyone's ornaments for xmas while the presents will be at the bottom of the tree.

Option 2: Winter Wonderland

This option entails clearing a large area and then creating either a walkway, minecart railway (think of like a theme ride), or both to view the area. Players would be given "plots" along the lines and asked to complete certain parts. For example, the path might lead the player to walk into an igloo and then pop out of Santa's fireplace then onto a frozen lake with penguins, and so forth. Presents could be displayed in the center of the wonderland/park.

Option 3: Gingerbread House (or Town?)

In this option, we would construct a massive Gingerbread house to build in. Everything from Gumdrop roofing to frosting floors and chocolate doors, and so forth. The other potential for this option would be to build a town of gingerbread houses, however since we built a Santa Elf Village for last year's build the latter option might not be feasible.

Option 4: Other (state below)

Please leave your feedback below and vote asap so that we can get planning on whichever option you guys choose! Thank you all, and in appreciation for the holidays, here is a blend of Thanksgiving & Xmas in one great (hilarious) google search:

was this thread reset or was the original one removed ? °π°
No, I linked the first thread above ;P

As I stated above, the choice in the first thread was to do a community build, so here I am listing options for what we should do for the community build

Alright, so at this point it does seem that Option 2 is the favored choice ;) I'll keep the poll open for now for anyone who has not voted yet but we will start to get preparations ready soon so that peeps can begin to work ;) We will most likely have another area in the creative world for you all to work on your segments and then transport it to the survival world for xmas to showcase for the server ;) We'll update everyone once the area is ready so that you may all start asap!

Alright peeps, here is the grid:
xmas2016 grid.png
The image is pretty self explanatory about the direction of the path. There are rails at the edges of the plots in the designated direction they will be heading, so whatever you design should be able to lead into the next plot ;) We ask that those who pick a plot to claim do so in the chronological order that's been given to take up necessary amounts of plots. So for example player A takes plot 1, player B takes plot 2, etc.

There is a warp in the Creative spawn that will lead to the site. Everyone has until xmas to build so there is no rush but the sooner it is done the better! Also depending on how many participate we may allow players to build on another plot. Good luck and have fun ;)
