Have you ever gone on a server, and started a faction, going out a few hundred blocks and making your base? If you have, then you probably got raided by the end of the day. When you START your base, you want to be ATLEAST 2000 from the spawn, to insure that it's more difficult for you to be found. I like to play it safe, keeping mine past 4000. Another tip for secrecy, above ground bases, while they can look cool, are easily spotted, and can be raided while you're offline. I make my bases, so the floor is just above bedrock. This way, if they even get within viewing distance of your base, they'll walk STRAIT over it and never know it's there. Now here's my third tip, and this depends on whether you can /home on the server, DO NOT claim the land, unless you can't /home and you're forced to /f home, because experienced players, run around, and type /f map which shows something like this
@: You %: (factoin name)

This is one of the NUMBER ONE tools for raiders, making it SO easy to find your base.

If you're a safety freak like I am, DO NOT have open entrances from the cave, to your base, if the land is claimed. I've been able to find the claimed land, when they're near bedrock, and dig into a nearby cave that connected to their base, so SEAL YOUR BASE UP!!

Now, you must be thinking "this blogs supposed to be about a successful faction, not a safe one." Yes, that is what this blog's about, but to have a successful faction, your base needs to be secure. NOW you start either mining, or farming resources to sell and the server store, depending on whether there's a store or not, which there usually is. In this case, I'm assuming there's a store.

MELLOOOONNNNNSS!!! (: Melons are usually sold in stores, if not, maybe you could request the owner to add them. Start your melon farm, a good melon farm shouldn't make use of all 4 sides like most believe, rather 1 side, so that there's room for others to grow. This way, while your offline, when you come back, there will be more melons then there would have been before
@: Melons //:Stems #:material other than dirt
##//@@##//@@##
##//@@##//@@##
##//@@##//@@##

##//@@##//@@## This my usual melon farm design

After the melon farm, buy DIAMONDS! Until you have enough for one suit of armor, and set of equipment for each of your teammates. After you get all that, which with your melon farm, may not take a long time, you need to buy stuff for potions, for in battle potions are AMAZING, BUT, if you're going to have a potion to effect you positively, make some that are splash, to conserve resources, getting your teammates in close and throwing it strait down, so you all get STR:2 out of one potion (: Lots of comments and diamonds and I may make some more blogs on this topic, Such as: Making Cannons, protecting your base, finding other bases, and so on and so forth.

Well guys, I guess that's all for today, this has been A Starving Hobosapien on: Making a Successful Faction
Live long, and kill well!!
