GriefHouse Possibly Closing

Post by OmniTurbo on 5/27/2017, 10:18 am

Hey everyone, it's Turbo, the current owner/lead of GriefHouse.

   If you don't know yet, GriefHouse is a fun SMP minigame about looting a small area and keeping the items. There are risks involved, and it isn't the GH staff's fault if you die, and your items can be looted and will not be refunded.


   I am thinking of closing GriefHouse down (not tearing it down) due to multiple reasons. Number one is the fact that the GH Team isn't too active aside from me. Panda's MC launcher isn't working, idk what happened with Naka, Ripstik, or Matt. Number two is I'm honestly not able to run it alone, it's just to much work for me right now, and I'm not too motivated to do it right now. And that brings me to the Third reason. There's been a decline in interest in GH, and frankly, I just don't think the community is too interested anymore. The final reason is that people are straight-up vandalizing the GriefHouse lobby.

   So, due to all of these reasons, I am putting up a poll for you all to vote on and help me choose to close down GH, hand it off to someone, or try and keep it going alone. I'll also add an option for you to apply to join the team and help me with keeping it up, if you want to do that just PM me. I'm leaving the poll up for three weeks, or twenty-one days.

          Thank you for your time,
                               TurboNewspaper

Just find some new people who want to help and do it less often. Still, if you're not up to it there's no shame in taking a break from doing it altogether.

Dont you DARE close Grief House, sir.

This minigame has been a fixture of the server for years. It hasnt always been super active and it hasnt always had the most interest but it's been there. If you dont have enough GH staff, find some more. If you dont want to do it anymore, pass on the torch. To close it down completely would be a crime.

You cant let griefhouse die.....

Hand it off if you can or find more helpers to help run it but just dont let it die. Griefhouse is oasis's oldest running minigame and everyones favorite.

People always try to vandalize GH, along with any other popular warps - it's happened on past maps ;.;

I'm pretty much with the others^ on this.
Even if you "closed" it... GH has been a part of Oasis for a while, and someone else will surely pick it up in the future.

I have nowhere near enough free time to run or staff GH, but I will mine and donate some stuff when I can. I love GH, but I sit out the event, since I have gmc and others could use the materials more. I just stick to donating stuff *-*

On a side note, I had an idea a while back that I keep forgetting to bring up:
What if you (or whoever runs GH in the future) posted a general list of high priority items you need donated for the current build project? Certain building blocks, decorations, etc. It would give us a good idea of what to focus on when we mine for stuff to donate, aside from diamonds and valuables.

I liked how you had the theme vote threads. It brought the community into the creation process a bit, and reminded people about GH in general.

Yeah good luck on that because it looks like some people would find it illegal for you to just take a break for a few weeks.

When the original GH was created by myself and few other no longer known players from the past it was never intended to be weekly.
GH is unique in the fact that it doesn't have to run weekly to keep interest, who doesn't like griefing legally?

Just slow down, find some more people to help you out and run it less often. Monthly, every 2 months, hell every year if you want.
Personally i'm done with building GH for the forseeable future, but the playerbase is still there. Do whatever you need to do.

^ So much these thoughts. I remember, I think it was like 1.10 maybe very early 1.11 I kept asking people who I thought were charge of GH - What items did you guys need other then ores and rare stuff? I do not mind spending time getting more commoner items like woods/stones/wools etc. Sadly, no one seemed to know what you guys needed/wanted/had and it was very frustrating because I did not want to give you guys chests of useless items you'd never use. I think even just fixing that alone would help GH out a ton!

@TBNRTurbo I am still alive and kicking. I mostly come online in the mornings (when all of you Americans and Canadians are still sleeping) :P I visit warp GH like every other day to check it for griefs/break-ins ect

Add: I see you passed the torch to Allie and Seafoam.
