I would, if I had internet on my computer (I bought it secretly).
I always use my parents' computers for wifi.

I guess I'd play it considering I'd be the OP. I'm going to invite a ton of people. I am going to run it on our 15 year old computer which now runs Ubuntu. Meaning that I don't know how many people it can take. I've had it run with 5 people quite stable. I'll make it a survival world with the option to play Skywars 2.0, which I plan on making automatic, but I haven't played minecraft in a while.

Probably offline. I know how annoying it can be to have to buy minecraft just to play with friends.

Why not? It's only like, $14 or so unless they jacked up the price. Even if you play casually over a long time you'll be getting your money's worth.

Holy cow, I bought it when it was like $8 or something in Alpha. It's just a moral issue. I understand pirating a game to try it, hell, don't we all do that sometimes when we're sceptical? But if you have no intentions on purchasing it yet you plan to continue playing? That's when you should really consider buying it. Unless of course you want them to stop developing the game because people are no longer purchasing it?
As for the server, I'm afraid vanilla lost it's touch for me a long long time ago. However, I still enjoy Complete The Monument (CTM) style maps (Vechs are the most balanced) and Ultra-Hardcore (UHC). Both add extra difficulty, strategy and unpredictability. I mean, if you're running through a cave what won't you expect after a while. Ooh, maybe there will be a 1 thick layer of stone above lava you might accidentally break or a hole you could walk into, but there's nothing unpredictable there because everything is done by the computer (Terrain-gen and AI) As with CTM maps the whole map is generally made by a person who can make traps and various different forms of surprises as well as terrain generally not possible by a generator. And with UHC you still have normal minecraft, just no auto-regen (Only regen from Golden Apples and Potions, which are harder to make) and you have the addition of other players who are also plotting against you.

I support UHC, I think that would be fun. CTM might also be fun, never tried it though.

If the server is going to be something that enables pirated players, it probably isn't something that can/should be discussed on compsci. Besides with offline you have absolutely no reliability that the person who logs in is the person they say they are. What's to stop to me from logging as Sly14Cat and becoming an admin? (unless you go through all the trouble of setting up your own account system, which would alleviate some of the problems)

With essentials installed, we can all be assigned nicknames by the admin. Only the user himself and the admin would know our actual username. Sounds to me like that would fix the problem, let me know if I missed something.

What's to stop you from logging in as me, I can just install a mod that makes you need a password to get in. That's what. As for pirated clients, I played minecraft for many months legally by just downloading the .jar, dropping it into the bin folder and playing offline. Legal and easier than getting a pirated client. Then I decided that I wanted to buy it.

I won't be adding a donation system because I don't think it's right for me to charge people for a server for fancy usernames is right. I will be the only admin and moderator and I will not tolerate inappropriate conduct.

Sounds good to me. Have we decided between survival/UHC/CTM?
