Of course what actually ends up in multiplayer and working by 31st Oct may be an entirely different thing. I can see the viewpoint of those who may not want damage on. Single player can be a bit annoying, waiting out the night so you can go out and build again, or else having to constantly look behind you for creepers. I'm somewhat amenable to a new map. While I wouldn't like to see the community split, I'd rather investigate options for running 2 styles of servers than completely lose people. Some might like to play on both depending upon the mood they're in anyway. If the current server map is retired then could it be zipped up and made available for people to download and play with on their own. Obviously the copy being taken before Mixa is let loose.
