Partly agree but not 3 months, there are many builds that are over a year old, and I am only talking about partially built or noob huts/farms that are very very basic that do stop a lot of good land going to waste. Some people only play every so often and have built big lavish homes/farms, these should not be touched. Real life gets in the way for a lot of people sometimes, others just get interested in a new game for a while then come back, there hard work should not have to be deleted.

I feel noob huts and basic farms (just a few vegies and abt 10 animals, tiny basic house) should be removed after a year only if someone wants to build there and only after staff have investigated that nothing else is owned by that person that is bigger or underground as that would prove that they have done more work than just built a one day farm.

Minor things like a chest, furnace and craft block and maybe a base frame of a house (clearly not completed) sitting in the middle of nowhere should go after 6 months and again after staff have investigated and only if someone wants to build there.

There still is plenty of room in 1.13 world and with 1.14 around the corner with the rumour being 1.13 world will be expanded, even more room to build.
For me a house or an apartment becomes a home when you add one set of four legs, a happy tail, and that indescribable measure of love that we call a dog.

Building space really isnt much of a problem though

This runs along a similar topic to the one I raised about the pre-reset world.

It's very difficult to simply throw away a build that is perceived to be abandoned. Often people come back to the server after a long absence and expect everything to be there, as they left it. Who is to judge how much a build means to someone or how long they can keep it before it is to be deleted? It seems unfair to do that to someone, especially with the chance that they may not have even been aware that their build would be removed.

The first server I ever played on did this, and I returned after two weeks to find that I no longer had any builds or items. I then immediately left that server, never to return.

Plus, as Anonymouse already mentioned: We don't have any issue with building space. People complain about the random teleport taking them to other players' builds all the time, but usually it's just a case of them whining about a problem that can be solved relatively quickly. The truth is that we have more space than we realise we have...

In general the staff deals with abandon buildings on a case-by-case basis, with the general guideline being that the building's owner has to have been off line for more than 7 months. That being said, removing abandoned buildings is only an option if it's existence is an issue of some kind.
"Some people you just cant reach. Which is the way they wants it. Well, they gets it. I don't like it anymore than you do."
I change it to 10 months
I do think 10 months might be more beneficial to everyone, but I would argue that abandoned builds should stay for 20 months, to ensure the player is not coming back, but as with the abandoned warp claim, which is 9 months I believe, ten months would be better.
