    Ok, first off, this was never really a contest. Secondly, there's still room for 3 more capitals, so until those are filled, it's unlikely this thread will be closed, even though Apple has been too busy as of late to do anything with it. Life happens. And last but not least, Blackstone was removed as a capital not because people were bribed to live there (they may have been, they may not have been, it doesn't matter), but because the owner of the town bribed people to vote on this post and say things that may or may not have been true, with the goal of gaining capital status. Bribing someone to live in your town could be anything, even something so simple as having spawners available in your town for resident use (as mine does), so there's no way it could be against any rules because it counts as a very broad subject, and it doesn't hurt anything because people can live in multiple towns. I hope this clears some things up.

    Offering people to use spawners is bribing too?

    It could be counted as such, especially if you only offer them for use by people who live there. Also, as I stated before, there's no harm in it anyway. Players are not restricted in any way to live in only one town, and how many residents you have isn't a strong contributor in, well, anything.

    I actually formed an opinion on this prior to reading this last post of yours tamsin. I agree, if you are doing as one town in particular is doing where you have to pay them money to access the spawners or even be a resident etc... that is bribery imo.

    Haven and Vale both offer our spawners for public use, anyone who wants to use them is free to use them. I tell non-residents all the time to come use them. In this case those spawners become a selling point for visiting the town and maybe even having a house there... But requiring people live there or otherwise pay money for access, is most definitely a form of bribery or extortion on a town level.

    Just to clarify, NOT however, on a personal level. Aka, if you have a personal mob grinder setup for private use, you can decide who accesses it and charge them or whatever else you want. It's your grinder.

    But towns are seen more as pubic works, with public access. Im not really sure where the line is however in town vs capital in relation to this.. For example, i'd say a capital should be required to be public access. Towns in my own view should be as well, but not everyone may agree with me there, so there may be room for them to limit access. Im not sure, only people of higher paygrade than i can decide on that.

    It's not a bad thing for towns to be private, I think that should be the choice of the mayor. It helps cut down on griefing/theft too, if the facilities are only open to residents. Forcing every town to be public might be detrimental to the town community, because I know from experience that it kind of makes your town a target for free shit (farms, books, food, etc) and not everyone has the resources to keep up with that.

    Town Ideas: We are going to bestow 3 types of residential areas in our town (medieval houses on land, beach houses by the sandy shore along with houses on stilts not far from land, and lastly we will present boathouses.) There will also be various sized plots where players can build among their creative ideas as long as it follows our themes and is approved by the mayors. We will include chests with blocks to help them with their building needs.
    We are interested in creating a wet market on a dock (where the stilt houses will be.) The wet market consists of all types of Minecraft fish, ink sacks, and fishing rods. We will also accompany a regular market on land that includes your regular Minecraft needs (food, armour, weapons, tools, blocks, etc.) All the markets will be reasonably priced.
    We are also fascinated in making an area for mazes (which you will get prizes for in the end,) parkour arenas, practise archery areas, an elytra flying zone (includes elytras,) and grinders with evil mobs and peaceful mobs.
    We will create a widespread beach area where our town members can relax and swim. The beach will consist of beach umbrellas and beach towels.
    We will have a courtyard with different activities and games for the main holidays (eg. Summer, Halloween, Christmas, Easter/Spring.) These activities will consist of games and challenges.

    Side Notes: We may need to use 'fly mode' for certain builds.

    If you have any questions, please do msg back to me.

    Thank you for reading I hope you find our application well.

    Back and better ever than before, the town of Pitfall (in purple world) offers a wide range and variety of public services, such as public villager trading, public farms, and a fully functional quadruple guardian grinder!

    I am an existing member of this town and definitely see a future potential for a capital city. :) Sudbury is very friendly along with all the Mayors and Co-Mayors I would definitely recommend this town to become a capital!

    CAPITAL APPLICATION:
    Mayors:
    President-
    The_Poseidolon

    Vice President-
    jordyleetaylor

    Congressional Moderators-
    Anthony_miA
    Hippospotamus

    Representatives-
    cheeriomartinez (IND-Po)

    Existing Town: Yes

    Town Name: Poseidopolis

    Town Theme: Classical, Neo-Classical, Modern
    We are rather liberal on the subject of citizen's homes, however we do ask them to build somewhat around the theme. The official capital buildings however follow the aforementioned themes. Additionally we have laws (notably the "House Review Board Act" and the "Urban Development and Administration Act") that allow the federal government to review houses within the capital and create violations of certain architectural "violations". All house reviewing is directed by the Head of the City Development Agency (CDA).

    Town Description: "Our society demands justice, independence, freedom, prosperity, and strength. We demand that these tenets be held to the highest priority so that we may progress as a people, a society, and as civilization as we know it. The People of Poseidopolis hold these tenets to be whole and true, and we keep this Constitution as our salvation against chaos in order to preserve what is right and just." Why did I have you read that slightly melodramatic piece of text? Well, honored capital granter of Applecraft, that is the preamble of the Constitution of Poseidopolis. Poseidopolis is a nation made to represent the people. Poseidopolis contains three branches of government, the executive, legislative, and judicial. The capital is centered at the Acropolis. Poseidopolis is a one of a kind nation based on the tenets of democracy, being a democratic republic with a President and Congress. The President nominates two "Congressional Moderators" and "Representatives" are elected by the people to represent them in Congress. Representatives represent a maximum of ten people. By relegating power to the people, I ensure that not only are people represented, but people's ideas are represented. Poseidopolis currently has 10x10 plots (empty are free, pre-built houses cost 1 diamond per level), 10x15 are 2 diamonds, and the big 27x27s cost (tentatively) 8 diamonds. All plots are centered around the "Acropolite Fortress" which contains the Acropolis where Congress convenes and the Presidential Mansion.

    Town Ideas: We will DEFINITELY be having a business district here soon (in which people can sell goods and etc., or offer a service), we'll probably have some government agencies and offices there as well. We also want to make some parks and non-urbanized areas just to keep some natural feel to some areas (think nature reserves). Aside from important stuff, we plan to also have some fun activities like a zoo (it will also double as a horse holder and seller with a "horse bank system") and perhaps even an amphitheater, Colosseum, mob grinder, and more! And AGAIN, this is a nation for the people, so if the citizens want something, they can make it happen!

    As we say in Poseidopolis:
    "Be active! Be a citizen! The government is here to serve YOU! If you want change, make it happen. Only you can change the world."

    I thank you for reading and considering my application, if you have any questions, message me on Discord at The_Poseidolon#5171 or message me on the server!

    Ok I'll be honest, I don't want my "town" to be the capital, but I want people to know about the project.

    Not a CAPITAL APPLICATION:

    Existing Town: No well, yes... Kinda

    Town Name: No name currently, unless we call it Plymouth :)

    Town Theme: Medieval, nordic, Gothic, etc
    Town will be centred around the main castle, followed by the keep and then a village with villager trading area i.e. marketplace, and then surrounded by people's houses in relative distances to the main hub. I don't want to make a town where people just make fake houses to decorate it, but want them to live in my town, which is not possible if the mayor can at any time delete their claim and remove them. I want them to be 100% free and have a 100% ownership of their own claims and so the town currently actually comprises of a few people, who each claimed their own area around my castle (or what is already built of it) and can build what their heart TRULY desires, however they were "recruited" upon them wanting to build in the given style themselves.

    I Liked the constitutions and ideas (ideals) listed in some town applications, so I shall give mine, however it should be no surprise really:

    "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all Applecrafters are created equal, that they are endowed by Applebranch with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Anti-griefing claim based towns are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Applecrafter becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to Jail or to Ban them in accordance with the rules laid out by Applebranch, and to endeavour to preserve their Safety and Happiness."

    Town Ideas: Everyone is KING in his/her own claim and no rules other than server's general rules apply to him/her, as such all activity, such as access to spawners or to anything else is regulated by each individual citizen.

    The town aspect of the gameplay will be to make a nice looking MC "realm" and create a community of players who help each other build and trade.

    Should we be allowed a trade areas, there shall be such, however it would most likely diminish the importance of already existing shops and so is not a necessary aim.

    I will be aiming to create a little PVP arena, where duels to death will be held, with prizes won, which can also be expanded to include horse racing.

    I do not want to be considered for a capital city, because I have RL world stuff that can occupy me at any moment making me unavailable for undefinite periods of time. That is also why each citizen will have their own 100% owned claim, which I cannot delete and which he doesn't need to worry about when he goes on holiday.

    This shall be a town for casual players, who cannot commit definite time to MC (but who will most likely end up spending hours upon hours playing on AC server anyway)

    Err? As in the movie production company?
    #Copyright does nothing and besides Plymouth is the name of a state and multiple cities.

    Why are you specifically trying to exploit everything bad or even slightly no good about everybodies posts? It's very rude and condescending.
