Let us get some things laid out. When I, or anyone joins our server, we expect something. That something is this: our status quo, which includes a friendly atmosphere, friends and/or friendly players, and a goal of reaching our minecraft goals, whether it is a building project, a resource quota, depending on which server you frequent perhaps. It is a duty of anyone, not just the staff, to maintain that status quo by exercising any power they might have.
So I plan to fulfill that duty. Given I am an admin, I have a great amount of tools available to make sure our servers' status quo is maintained. Most issues I can readily deal with, being if it has not been already resolved.
When I log in to hear about some drama though, a headache returns. Drama has always been a challenge for most of us here. Every dramatic situation needs a different protocol to solve justly. I cannot refer to a sheet of rules to these sorts of things. This is why I find dramatic tension to be the root of all friendship evils. I refuse to live with a headache. So I will put this here.
Firstly, no one, not even staff, have a right to shred a build of anyone's ownership to a ghost of its former self. I think anyone would be angered if they were to find a battered mess of their project, whether in-progress or ancient. I find we did cross a line that night when Dev's ship was, erm, ship-wrecked. I wrongfully participated in the event by laying out a WE of anvils into the area. If wanted, which I can imagine will be, I will do my part to aid in a clean-up and strip the area of anvils. It seemed funny late that night, but now we are left with a stain on our KS image and a bad hangover. This could have lead to some demotions. I do not want that.
But hold up. This is not a typical sitation, thanks to the known formally as drama. Somewhere along the way, it had to worm its ass into here and make this an atypical situation, and no longer could anyone refer to a book or pamphlet to settle the issue. There is a reason I can imagine why some are perpetuating this madness. A while ago now, you and a group of admins disagreed with how KS was being managed, specifically on the Survival server. That is fine with me. What is not okay is when one continuously abuses his or her influence to get what he/she wants, not what the Owner wants, and start slamming those that he/she finds disagreeable with slander. No leader of any sort does those sorts of things. That ruins the status quo we are all sworn to maintain here. So to maintain it, you and a few others either were ousted, or left by choice, in order to settle it.
Here's the meat of this: you left us by your own decision. I recall quotes mentioning you were gone for good. Well what sort of idea does that give us here? We can only assume you would no longer bother with anything here. So when we defaced your build, you suddenly come crying to this forum about how it was griefed, and that we should not have done such a thing. Well you shouldn't have left us or talked badly about us, dammit!
So I find no other reason for you to be perpetuating the drama that was meant to be settled long ago, except by stirring up trouble and making an attempt to degrade our image, reverting back to your ways before removing yourself seemingly permanently. Being sworn to maintain the status quo of our servers, I will end this now, taking action rather than letting it hover in the hot air. You, Devexus, are now banned from Keystone. For good. The reasoning behind this being drama continuation and slander towards our server and its members. A non-hostile approach to this matter will not counter this, for doing so is also be considered perpetuating the madness. If needed, I will gladly ban ANYONE and their alts who also wish to continue this in the spotlight here. Further messages WILL be done in private messaging, and will not be had here without a harsh, yet just punishment, for disturbing the status quo we are sworn to maintain will NOT be tolerated.
Took about 2 weeks to build. Its is very big.Still need to add more planes and stuff.All of that was built on top of a Swamp. My first Airport was Build there but after thinking I demolished the whole thing and built a new one.That is when Someone built there Airport next to mine.And now copying is taking place of my Airplanes. But no problem.People wanna copy.It just shows how they can't create something.

For the past few months, I have been working on recreating Goldenrod City from Pokemon Silver/Gold/Crystal/SoulSilver/HeartGold. For those of you who don't know, I am a big Pokemon fan. Anyway, today I bring you the final product. I tried to make the city as to scale as possible, but of course there were limits. The buildings are far larger on the inside than the outside (in the game), so some buildings are much smaller/larger than they appear in the game. I also left out the GTS island to keep the spirit of the original version of Goldenrod City. I also did not include the basement area of the shopping center because it would have interfered with the underground tunnels.
For now, living in the city will be invite-only. People that live in the city can only edit the inside of their homes. Because you can never enter the generic homes in the game, I figure that this won't effect the city as a whole. However, nobody may edit the outside of their homes or the rest of the city.
