Map Reset Policy Discussion
I'd like to come up with a more official policy on map resets. Here are some ideas I've thought about (in no particular order), please chime in with opinions and any suggestions of your own:
1. Stick with the current scheme: vote on a new map whenever a new major version of Minecraft comes out, only reset the map if the vote gets 50%+ of the votes. If the vote fails we wait until the next major version to re-vote.
2. Similar to current scheme, but re-vote at fixed intervals (i.e., every 2 or 3 months) instead of waiting for new Minecraft versions.
3. Hold a "sticky" ongoing vote (probably via an in-game plugin) where users register as a "yes" or "no" to a new map, and can change their mind whenever they want. As soon as the yes players outnumber the no players by some arbitrary ratio (i.e., 2 to 1) and holds steady for some arbitrary time frame (i.e. 1 month) we reset the map. The vote would probably be reset at fixed intervals (i.e., every 2 or 3 months) so that inactive players can't skew the numbers.
4. Don't vote, just reset the map at fixed intervals (i.e., every 6 months).
