    With the future of Bukkit and the API unknown, I was wondering if there is any interest in a Supporter only, vanilla server running 1.8. Repurposing the Origin server makes the most sense as this is hardly ever used. Vanilla means there is no Residence or Lockette to protect your things. PVP? Grief control? Who knows? Maybe Matt simple lets us all be grown ups and take responsibility. Maybe we could call it The Wild West and anything goes. It might be fun. Maybe this would be beyond Supporter status; as in you must make an additional donation to play this server. This could help to keep some of the riff-raff out.

    Please post thoughts, crazy ideas and ear pics below.

    I've always been interested in a true bukkit-less vanilla server, but i dont think it's worth $5 a month (per person) for the WA supporter status. Might as well just rent your own Realm for $13 a month and invite 20 people that you like.

    The problem with vanilla is scalability and reliability. It's fine for a few friends on a realms server, but for potentially hundreds or thousands of people connecting that's a nightmare (even though they aren't on at the same time). No plugins means no rollbacks. No way to find chunks with a million entities, or if you do find them, no way to clear them. No way to find or kill those high-frequency clocks eating the CPU. No way to prevent xray. No way to prevent flying. No way to lower the entity tracking range which cripples the CPU from all the iron farms.... The list goes on.

    I will probably put up the snapshot server again, but it won't come with the same reliability and durability as the World server.

    So, you're saying we can do it as long as it's just me and @Lars_Eh if we promise not to breed anything or use redstone?
