Adding to the previous poster, you can go a step further and have a command linked (depending on what mods you are using) to reset the said dungeon through the respective "control panel commands". I don't know how you have your server set up, but with mine I can set up a string of executable commands upon a milestone completion, admin command, or item interaction to list a few.
There are plenty of resources out there to help you, it'll just take some digging to find the ones that will work with what you are using and what you want to do.

You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink.
Where in the rules does it say everyone must interact with your content? In an ever increasing passive / consuming world, where it's easier to be fed content rather than interact, why do you think you are somehow owed something more? From the opposite side of your complaint - why should I be obligated to "get to know you"? Even bigger newsflash - everyone is selfish. We're all concerned with our own well-being and in this topics regard, our own entertainment.
The reality is you are but a single entity in a sea of millions so the cold, hard truth might be you're just not that interesting. Or maybe you just haven't found your stride in making video content. Or this post further solidifies why some don't want "to get to know you", as it is whiny, self-centered, biased, and needy. And lord knows if you've spent any amount of time on the internet, you're well aware that there is more than enough of that to go around. Put your big boy panties on and carry on.
TL;DR You come and play on Minecraft Forums, you agree to play by Minecraft Forums rules.

Lupine Village is situated on the northeastern edge of the Lupine Plains and acts as the breadbasket and water port to DogWynd Castle. Its small collection of citizens boast some of the finest farmers, craftsmen, and smiths in Bloom. It is also home to Father Shooie and the Chapel of the Holy Egg, who claims to be descendant and sole remaining member of the Templar Knight of the Egg.

DogWynd Castle has snuggled into it's new home atop the snow-capped mountains overlooking the Lupine Plains. It retained much of its original wonders - the sky-dock with the HMS DogBreath idling away, ready for it's next flight. The balloon tower and dock, with the HMS DogBladder tethered, at the ready. The throne room, the shops, dungeon, and homes all now a slightly bit more cozy with the campfire addition from the latest update.
Now with the addition of Citizens and QuestMaker, DogWynd Castle now has a smattering of interesting citizens and royal attendants which offer quests, and more in the works that open up a bit of the history of Bloom once fired up.

Bloom continues to expand and flesh out within its blocky borders. The center of Bloom begins at the Approach of the Deities. From there roadways lead to DogWynd Castle, Lupine Plains, Lupine Village, Dismal Mire, and Far Reach Oasis. So I played around with some paint and map magic to present -

You are completely entitled to your opinion, but I offer my rebuttal.
You were welcomed to play and utilize the server world while I currently revamp and construct a newly seeded world. Where things seem to have gone off the rails is you pitching a fit because I would not OP you or give you permanent Creative mode privileges. Furthermore what I do with this server is none of your business. You stated your suggestions, I listened, and made my decisions. I pay the bills, I get to do that. What you think I should do is really of no consequence to me now, nor anyone else who might like to play or simply look around. You don't like it? You don't have to come and play. It's that simple.
This server won't be for everyone. This is the beauty of Minecraft and the ability to customize servers. There are millions of combinations. So there is literally something for everyone. You were not asked to be a "builder", nor am I looking for any at this time; as this nor any of my posts are listed in the Server section opening it up for advertising to the general public. You've made an abundance of assumptions based on your interpretations and what seems to be impatience with how and what I choose to apply my time towards.
Uping your rant by trying to insult my ability to construct simple or complex redstone devices, interact with villagers or any other of the base game or multiple add-on commands is just getting silly. I didn't realize I was supposed to attempt to impress you. I am not in any hurry to get this server to any point, at any time. I build each layer at my leisure. I've left you in awe in every one of those categories on numerous occasions; on this server as well as previous ones. Now you want to stomp your feet and throw a tantrum because I won't fund your personal playground or bend to your demands upon threat of bad posts on a forum? That is your prerogative.
The only constant that seems to be present is your abrasiveness towards others. Hopefully someday you will learn how to play well with others, and accept the rules and direction set up by others for playing with their things.
So in closing, before you continue your lamenting of being banned from yet another server - you are not banned. You are still welcome to come play and look around, but you are well aware of the rules, what I eventually plan to do, and proper conduct I expect if I let you "piddle" around while I play / work. If that is something you cannot handle, you do not have to play.
Thanks for the bump.

The server address has changed, I have updated it in the previous post. It is also updated to the newest 1.14 version, but I am still in the process of deciding whether Bloom is in need of a reset to fully utilize all the latest and greatest fun things implemented in the newest update. There are definitely some gee-whiz cool things that would be cool in the world of Bloom, Lupine Village, Jaundice Sands, and at the grand Fort DogWynd.
Be there and be square, builders.

There are multiple solutions to each and every "problem" you have presented here, it's not suddenly a matter the developers need to address simply because you don't like or feel comfortable learning how to utilize them. It would take a fraction of the time for you to step outside your comfort zone and do these things rather than expecting the current working staff to tailor the gameplay to your liking.
Furthermore, the initial staff/team did visit and grace the early iteration of this forum - way back before it changed hands multiple times, way back in the early Alpha days, and they were inundated with suggestions, gripes, and kudos out the wazoo back then. Countless millions of sales later, it's not even realistic for them to publicly show their "face" in any place without being swamped with gibberish, let alone read and respond to any issue addressed to them.
TL;DR - There are ways to do what you are wanting to do, and from your post, you seem to already know about at least a few of them. It's not prudent to whine that they further develop the game to your specific likely. That's what mods and even many of the already in-game items are for.

Have you tried using ender eyes to locate the ruins in which the end portal would be located?
Create a duplicate spawn of the seed you are using and use creative mode to throw ender eyes till your heart's content.

I have decided to open Bloom / DirtLand without having come to a previously determined milestone. The world has been gathering dust, with me only checking in every so often to lay a few blocks when I find the time in my busy schedule. I can't bring myself to pull the plug on all that is Lupine Village, Jaundice Sands, Fort DogWynd, and the marvelous HMS DogBreath.
So without further ado, I throw open the portal to this world. Explore and enjoy. Be inspired. Check out some of the locales featured in the previous entries. I ask that you play nice, respect what is there, and don't modify or build in biomes that are already built in. Otherwise go forth and be fruitful.

Your question number 3 has no correct answer. You are asking something with no definitive answer or proof. It's abstract. How do you figure that would even be score-able as a question / answer pair?
Your answer for 4 is incorrect. George Washington was the first president of the United States of America.
John Hanson was the president of the Continental Congress, which was the transitional governmental power during the American Revolution. The position really didn't have any powers or assigned responsibilities. Furthermore the United States were not the "United States of America" prior to John Hanson, it was merely a collection of 13 British colonies under a congress.
Then since you want to get asinine with your questions and answers, question 5's answer is also incomplete / incorrect. "Towards the center" of what? Down is also a relative descriptor in context to the orientation of the user or observer. Someone occupying the southern hemisphere is not going to hurl off into space if the Earths gravitational force acted "down" simply because down to you is a perceived direction. Down for someone in the southern hemisphere is relatively and usually, downward towards the ground. This makes your answer of "Towards the center" just as ambiguous and relative. Towards the center of what? The moon? Well there are certainly gravitational forces in play that act on objects that act towards the center of that. The center of the what exactly? And if you want to claim the Earth, you might want to bone up on that as well as gravity is not a force that acts towards the exact center of the Earth either.
That was enough blatant misinformation to discredit pretty much everything else about your little quiz. It was sloppy at best.
