I actually feel partly at fault for this, I suggested something similar (as a joke) over mumble. However rest assured I wasn't the offender, I haven't been on minecraft today.

We need to install that anti-griefing mod ASAP; but we also need to make sure it logs the actions of admins as well as players ..

On another note, how was the bomb disabled? I didn't think it was possible without making it explode.

The house was really high, so manuzza and I came up with the solution of clearing the blocks around it, and setting if off, as TNT falls before it blows. We repaired the cleared blocks and all was good.

I am interested to see who was responsible. A joke amongst mates is fine, and if you are consenting adults, I see no problem in it. But a random placement of TNT or something that could destroy something someone worked hard on, is no fun.

Exactly. "Mates" not being defined as anyone who happens to play on the server.

Glad you guys could sort it out.

So did you suggest to put the TNT in my house, or just anyones house in general? If you suggested to put it in my house, why, do I know you?

I believe the discussion was about tnt and the difficulties in using it, and the point was made that a griefer could take advantage of this and just leave one anywhere and cause major inconvenience.

So I don't believe your name or location ever came up in the conversation as I heard it.

I believe it was before you even came on Wolf... and it was really brief... I think it was along the lines of "a practical joke could be played where a TNT block was placed in someone's house" - eg just a general comment (which I pointed out would be mean) and then someone said it wouldn't be that bad because you could encase it in obsidian and set it off - which then lead to a discussion on a griefer on another server covering people's houses in obsidian... and we branched off from there - as you do...so that was pretty much the extent of it (unless someone else discussed it at a different time?)

Hopefully this is just a once off, I know there has been a few other mishaps but they should settle off. maybe we should enforce a punishment if there is a person caught doing this kind of thing. (Demotion to a house cat for a week :P) This should discourage people from causing grief.

This shouldn't be necessary, but sometimes a joke can get out of hand and we just need to remember that people have worked hard on there work and shouldn't have to remake there work. I think we can put this to rest for the moment as there is not much we can do to fix it at this point. As it is to hard to figure out who actually did it.

(house cat is a reference from "just shoot me" just thought it was funny)

Oh no, it wasn't a targeted discussion at all. Nor was it an instruction by any means, I was telling everyone about the old practical jokes that worked before the bug fixing; Noting that people used to place TNT behind others doors, and when the door opened .. the tnt exploded. Then the topic went on to bomb deactivation and how we would encase them in obsidian and set them off.

"Suggested" was probably the wrong word to use, it was more reminiscing on old times.
