Likely due to the DC change over, process is still running AFAIK on the new selection.

Prob more niss_man not checking the forums often. The survival server has much softer claim rules than the creative.

Asking is of course the most polite method of course, so I think your opening comment of a week wait is perfectly fine. It should be just fine to go ahead and do that.

Yeah, I mean, We can't really give you permission to link it to someone else's construction, since it's not ours...but given it's just a road, and you're not wanting to do something to someone's actual house or something, I can't see why there would be an objection, and you've given a reasonable amount of time for any complaints to be made if niss-man didn't want it done.

I find it a shame actually that the road was made as it was - I think it would look nicer and be easier for other roads to branch off it, if it had been made a little more angular - though there is a building in the way of continuing the skyroad along from spawn so I see why it had to detour around a bit. But I'm not sure if it's appropriate if I rebuild it

On the server I play on We have some projects that are considered "community created" rather than belonging to any one individual. Two prime examples would be the main roads, and rail network (with a centralised train station). Anyone can connect to these, so long as they observe the style being used. When a DC gets appointed it might be worth considering something like this.

[edit]
PS - and yeah as Sorontar mentioned below, we also respect each others "area." too.

The roads normally are regarded as community-based. Anyone can add or make new roads from them. Ditto for train tracks. However, what people need to be careful about is whether the road/rail will be intruding on an area in which someone else is working.

As has been pointed out, on the Creative server, players can claim large areas of land. On the Survival server, we don't expect the same size of claims. The original players on the Survival server also haven't worried about telling everyone about where exactly they are working.

However, we do expect common courtesy and threads like this are fine. New players are going to find it hard to clearly find areas that haven't been worked in, so asking if an island/waterspace etc is unused is good. As is asking whether it is okay to run a road/railway over what seems to be unused land (at the surface level).

So DarkDuck my advice is that you go right ahead and make your road/railway/whatever, but try and place it midway between existing buildings. Ideally, if you can't see them when using the longest fog setting, you are fine. You have tried to contact the person who is most likely to be affected and after over a week, got no response. I would consider that a decent effort and time span.
