    So I just had an idea! It happens to me a bit so I was just curious on other's stories on how they got stolen from or griefed.

    The most recent malicious heist used the fact that my claim ended around my chests so they pumped out the items from the side facing the claim limit. All of the stuff was just yoinked just like that. I mean I have the claim blocks available for it now but yeah....

    I claimed my original base:) and my base-mate build outside of the claim:banghead:, she reminded me to claim it:bookworm:, then we both got distracted :blackalien::greyalien:and I didn't extend the claim the day she reminded me to:eek: lol oops. Fast forward a month later when we found time to game again we logged back on and thus we lost a few items. :( She may have been a tiny bit sad/mad :grumpy::cow:because it was items she had made.

    Moral of the story? Build inside your claim and be sure to extend it when you expand.;)

    Had an autospawner stolen once due to an exploit involving one side not being protected by a claim and the fact that certain auto breakers can break blocks inside a claim if 1 side is exposed or the breaker has a range mode and filter. They placed the breaker outside the claim and then was able to pop the spawner off. And then recovered it with a vacuum hopper

    Another one I had someone unintentionally harvest my Silverwood tree orchard for me. They thought they were natural spawns because they were on the edge of a magical forest biome. That one I was fine with as I got the wood back and I didn’t have to put the time into chopping all the trees down.

    I had one where I saw someone in my base, figured it was a visitor or something so I went to say hi, but saw them with some of my stuff in their hand and they instantly tp'd away so it was pretty obvious they were griefing the stuff just outside my claim that I didn't have quite enough blocks for yet. It probably made it easier for the mod who dealt with that ticket as I could tell them exactly who it was lol!

    I have a base on Regrowth and pretty much everything of 18 chunks has been claimed, but a tiny plot of 4x8 blocks of land in the middle of it was left out because otherwise there would be overlap . And in that little slice of land one wall of my smeltery was sticking outside the claim. just the one block. And Everthing in there was stolen.

    I actually and totally unwittingly caused a grief issue way back on the Infinity Expert server (before the last 2 resets). I needed (wanted) more draconium, so i took a staff of power, set it to 11x11 and went nuts in the end. Stripped the entire main island, only thing left was the bedrock blocks that were on top of the obsidian pillars and the portal in the center.

    Not much later i got banned for Griefing of the end. Yea... its actually possible to grief the end.

    As for grief happening to me, nothing much. some theft here and there, nothing major or anything i couldnt recover from. Worst kind of was in the same period as that End-Grief thing i mentioned.

    I used to run 4 draconic reactors in my void base controlled by ComputerCraPft and because apparently my base was causing lag, a staff member disabled them, but not by turning them off using the interface... nope... Broke some blocks and they all went critical and that was the end of my base lol. Only thing that had miraculously survived the 4 reactor blasts, was a couple of ender io conduits and my ME terminal randomly floating in the air. Wasnt technically grief, but staff back then could have used their brain lol. Was in the Kronnn/Wyndman period while they were still admin. Not sure who did it though :)

    I think I played once with @_Cilo_ and @dragon87tamer. She was trying to steal my heart and he was taking my nerves, but other then that I think I had no major griefs before. I would have to check my old tickets.

    Joking aside, I could tell you of the worst thing I have seen in a non-grief case as a staff member, but I am pretty sure that post might get deleted.

    Had a tier 5 blood altar (plus the build I made to house it) stolen on the Enigmatica 2 Expert server Twice first time was due to the altar not being claimed and second time was due to someone who lived not to far from me on the server that had permissions in my claim (This was a friend of mine I met on the server) He thought I had stopped playing on the server so he "rescued" my tier 5 altar to keep it from being deleted when I came back he gave it back and all was forgiven

    Use to, the claiming system wasn't as advanced as it is today. I had started playing with dom other programmers on the server we created. We didn't know the claiming system was bugged and used it. I came back after a weekend off and found my base totally griefed. I reset the boundaries and tried again. Next night total grief. We set a trap for the griefer with TNT from the walls of my claim out 3 blocks and protected my claim so it wouldn't be destroyed and waited for the results.
    None of the admins or staff were on duty when the butt actually filled out a ticket because he had lost all of his items when he tried to grief me and set off the TNT. This was a programmer that didn't like me and wasn't associated with the server staff. This guy wound up having to refund all the items he had stolen from me and even had to rebuild my claim. Once he was done to my satisfaction, I permabanned him.
    BTW... Minecraft has always had a problem with blocks that sit directly on a claim line. At one point to prove that we could do it, we removed the blocks on the edge and walked directly into the claim, and removed an alloy furnace and something else I forget now, and put the blocks back into place. After the dude resized his claim, we refunded his items. I now have a habit of building one block inside the claim line no matter what.
