I've read that if you crouch your name will be visible a much shorter distance, but I haven't tested it myself.

for those looking for the area, its due west of spawn, at least 1 full days walk. You will know you have reached it as it is in a snowy hilly area, with a 2x1 cobble fence around it.
The obsidian castle is below the midpoint, ie, south along the fence.

Maybe the next community project is a road leading from spawn to the PvP area?

Nope.
(well for me anyway)

I either want to mine, build, or easily get to a place where I can Ninja "Yo Ass" with a snowball.

Seriously though - If it's hard to get there (like to the 2-3 day walk you mentioned) I'm going to be over the desire to smack Soronatar in the back of the head with a limited edition, signed snowball from ABBA (Do you hear the drums Sorando?), by the time I get there - but should my terrible attention span include me spending the 10-15 minutes (if thats correct on the day night cycle) to get there and no-one else is?

My choice of PvP area would consist of a large and extravagant TOG Colosseum built near and accessible from the spawn area. Inside it you could hold duels, tournaments, challenges or games that involve pvp aspects. The added bonus would be that you could create an area/seating that allowed non-participating spectators to watch.

Just 2 random cents thrown into the pot.

heard you the first time Bazz :P
anyway, its not that far from spawn, and is closest to Bazz's place. I don't mind either way, but it is not at least tested, and we know how the plugins work. (and that they do)
PVP is open for business people... good luck.
ps, Diamond swords rock.

Nice idea, here’s a vid that looks pretty nice
YouTube - Roman Colosseum in Minecraft Alpha

Also for the colosseum can we get mobs to spawn so we can battle them.
LOL – Friday night will now be forever known as “Spider fight night”

And a jousting arena, so we can mount our pigs for battle.

“Hear ye, hear ye,
i be Sir Oinksalot and challenge all ye’ comers to an evening of ‘Ye Ol pig jousts. He i sit atop my trusty stead “Baconsandwhich’ ”
