Fixing corrupted world chunks easily!

A few of my players banded together and spent some time working out how to go about fixing this issue permanently, and I am happy to say that through their efforts a solution was found! As it turns out fixing corrupted world chunks is quite easy, you just need the right tools to do it.
In order to fix a corrupted chunk you need 2 things:
1) MCEdit (A free world editor for Minecraft, just type it into your preferred search engine and you will find it no worries, there are also tonnes of tutorials and "how-to" videos as well should you need a hand working out how to use it.)
2) The world file that contains the corrupted chunk.
Once you have these 2 things the next part is a piece of cake, simply open the world file that has the chunk issue with MCEdit. Press these keys- "Ctrl+I" and then select the option of "region repair" (Or something along those lines, I cannot remember exactly what the option is called, but it is only 1 of 2 options that are available.) and then let it work its magic!
Re upload the file to your server or open it in Single player (depending on how you play I suppose lol) and it should never bother you again. I have personally tried this method and it is safe to say it has been a success for me and my server!
I have written this article as this issue caused me and a number of my fellow Creation Bay users quite a headache and stress, and I hope that if you are suffering this issue you stumble across this article and find it helpful :)
Thanks everyone, take care and happy crafting! :D
