Notch Shout-Out For Buxville (from back when he still worked on Minecraft)
Buxville is a huge and dynamic world full of mature, creative and motivated players that help make the server a friendly and exciting place to be. With many server plug-ins it is far from Vanilla but sticks to the core principles that everyone should be able to mine and build while offering some of the most advanced grief and theft protection there is. There is never a time when the world is lifeless and many reasons why, If you would like to Join the server please read the entire post (It's long but you wont regret reading it all :P) and there are instructions at the bottom.

Buxville Roles System
Our Roles system transforms the sandbox game into an addictive RPG that encourages all players to interact and help each other in order to excel. It provides a goal that gives you motivation for all the mundane tasks.The core elements remain, so it is still the game that you know and love. The role structure is carefully crafted so that each Role has important perks which are balanced with the others. It does not take away the core elements, that make Minecraft so great, from any of the players. Everyone is able to mine, farm, hunt, and build just the same as they could in the normal game (with a few small exceptions). It is possible to have every role, but it will take hard work and patience.
There are 19 Roles:
- Donor Status
Everyone starts out as a peasant, without a role. Much like throughout history the peasants are the ones who fuel the economy with resources that they have collected through the standard means, then the players with roles buy those items to use, sell on for profit , or make into more advanced items to use or sell on for profit. As you advance in the world you gain ranks in your role much like your social class. The lowest ranks of the roles offer basic perks but as you rank up the possibilities for profit and fun increase, but so does the cost. This process requires patience and for many members will take weeks and months but it always feel worth it when you reach the next level. With every rank you go up in your role, you unlock new abilities and perks. Not to mention more respect from within your role and on Buxville; sometimes even a shiny new chat color as well .
You'll need to make your first Bux (The currency on Buxville) by working for others, selling mined materials to a shopper, working on tree farms, you name it. Once you've made enough Bux to join a role, you'll have an important decision to make!
Currency and Trading
Buxville server has a plugin that provides a way to track a real currency in game at all times. This currency (we lovingly call it Bux) is used to pay for materials, products, teleport services, ranks and so on. This currency is really involved in everything that happens on Bux.
There are plenty player run shops in Buxville, run by people from the Trader caste who have the ability to trade items straight to the server. They are thus an ideal middleman to sell your spare materials to, and make yourself some early Bux!
The value's of the items that Traders can buy and sell with the server is dynamic, rising and falling based on supply and demand. The shop automatically and immediately increases the value of materials and items when they are being bought from the shop, and decreases the value when people are selling their wares to the city even reaching a point where an oversold item becomes worthless. This creates an awesome dynamic economy, where smart people can play the market and get rich, and cunning players will try to stockpile materials until prices rise again.
Buxville also runs an advanced script which provides random economic events. These simulate events occurring in the world which have an instant effect on the value of certain items in the Buxville shop. Traders often collect and hoard many different products and materials to be able to instantly profit during these events. Try and outsmart 'em, but be careful, as hoarding can be profitable only if you're patient!
Everyone on Buxville has access to the /cast command. Basically the magic system is a list of spells, you can learn spells in different ways. 2 spells (Mark and Recall) are learnt after peasant completes part of his mentoring and other spells are only learnt by paying a Senator and above to teach it to them or by finding a very rare magic bookcase that may still be dotted around the world.

Lifts can be made by anyone and offer easy travel up and down the map taking a lot of tedium out of making and moving around towers and mines. To make a lift you simply make a sign with [Lift Up] or [Lift Down] with the corresponding opposite lift directly in line with it. The other lines can be used for detail, the standard for lift signs is writing the current level on the top line and following level underneath.
More Information on Lifts
Bridge's can only be made by Tradesmen and above, they instantly fill a gap with the blocks at each end and can be used for drawbridges. They are made much like lift's are but with [Bridge] on the second line. The bridge must be made of 3 of the same accepted blocks (expensive blocks not possible) with a sign in the centre facing another bridge sign with the same set-up.

Integrated Circuits (IC's) are much more complicated that the other installation's and are only available for placement by Genius's and above. Their purpose is to condense redstone circuits into signs to increase processing speed and space needed for advanced circuitry. Here are some examples:
[center]Sign Code (On second Line) - Function
[MC1000] - Repeater
[MC2020] - 3-bit random number generator
[MC1110] - Wireless transmitter[/center]

Higher ranked players from the Construction caste can build a cauldron. There are several unique and rare items which can be crafted in these cauldrons. You do this by actually placing a pattern of blocks in the cauldron, then activating it with a flick of the mouse, and *poof*, your crafting is done! There are even random cauldron events, where a special and usually valuable recipe is only available temporary, and one ingredient block is a mystery block!

Skills are an essential part of the server, as it rewards players in a new way for their work. Not only does mining and woodcutting now grant the standard drop, it will also grant experience, and ultimately skill up for that specific stat. With higher skill comes better bonuses. Where woodcutting and mining enables double drop for every block destroyed, other skills, such as excavation enables entirely new resources to be found when digging. Herbalism will give you the ability to plant grass, or even create mossy cobblestone. Repairing (mechanics role feature) will allow broken tools to gain their durability back. Taming will boost your pet wolves combat capability. Every weapon (including unarmed) is also covered to give minor edges in pvp combat. Such as igniting people with a bow and arrow. Disarming your opponent for a short time when fighting unarmed. Parry attacks using swords. And ultimately dealing double damage on chance with your axe.
Every ability has it's unique features and perks. Some will even come with actual abilities that can be used for faster harvesting, better loot or just dealing more damage in combat. In a persistent world, persistent rewards are granted through leveling up these individual stats.
More Information on Skills
There are three types of quests: bribed, random and trader.
Bribed quests are quests started by Omerta. Their clients will sometimes ask from them to bribe a quest, and will ask that in that quest, a certain item should be used as quest item. Of course, as part of the Bribe, the item used in the quest, as well as the starting NPC may be specified, which makes these type of quests very powerful.
Random quests are semi-scripted events that give players an opportunity to make quick Bux in many ways and give boost to the economy though increasing demand. At random times during the day a NPC quest will pop up in the chat log with a quote from 1 NPC and you have to figure out what NPC it is and rush to him. Once you talk to him (using you book) you can see and accept his quest, which will be to take a number of a certain item to another given NPC.
Trader quests are given to traders, where they can hand in a certain amount of an item in return for a Bux reward.
And a lot more!
