Pwegoserver is now one year old, much has changed. But some things at spawn are still not up to date. I suggest some changings at spawn:
1. Add Glowstone at storage.
Since nether is not enabled you can't get them anymore free, and iConomy is down, too. But Glowstone is a VERY important material that is used at almost all buildings. So you should be able to get it at storage.
2. Remove that crafting table thing!
What has this giant crafting table to do at spawn? It looks uggly and isn't hard to built. You can't even enter it! Why not replace it with a cool build or skyscraper? You could maybe use stuff built by other (not-Admin) players, of course only if you find things that look good. They would be very happy to see their build at spawn.
3.Remove Halloween decoration
Guys, Halloween was a month ago, so remove all the pumpkins. It doesn't take long to fly around at spawn and just hit them with creative mode.
4. Remove griefed city.
If you go/fly to the pwego station from spawn and go the same direction further you will find a bridge. The bridge itself is nice, but around it is an old, uggly, griefed city of cobblestone & co.
Why don't you remove it? Nobody would bother! Or you repair it and make it nice.
5. New spawn center.
Since everyone is builder from default and the rules have been changed, the spawn center must be cleared of the old rules and new one must stand there. Maybe the people spawn at the top and must go down (through soul sand, good idea) and read all the rules. The system now is confusing, you must jump down and then enter the center again.
6. /warp tools should be moved.
A flying house... Strange... Put the tools supply at the storage...
7. A flying mushroom with glowstone? Bedrock things wiht signs "Do not remove?"?
Ok if there are just a few things they are funny, like the wood things flying at spawn called "view point do not remove" But in one year many rubbish came to spawn. Some of it should be cleared. It's like in real life: If you always buy and buy the house gets full. You must be able to throw away things!
I hope you agree with this changings to make spawn better. Please say why you like/dislike them and maybe change them or suggest others. Thank you

That's a shame, any idea why they removed it Hyp? I guess I'm asking more about the obsidian because as soon as I'm done with Palmanova I have another build in mind and it'll be made with a lot of obsidian in mind. I'd prefer access to creative mode but I'm also aware that it's not given out to just anyone, so I'm going to see if there's another way I can make do without.
One of the other VIP3's last night gave a builder a challenge to build the Pwego world bank, it was kind of a joke, but if it turned out to be truly amazing, who knows...
But the idea of having all materials in one central location also occurred to me at the same time, I thought this sounded like a good idea and it's not exactly like we're wanting for lack of floor space in any of the buildings you already have in spawn-city, but maybe it's something else to consider as well while you're toying with the idea of moving things around?
Couldn't you just make the workbench smaller and maybe of different materials? I'll be honest with you when I first saw it I didn't know what it was and I thought that it was butt-ugly, it wasn't until I got far enough away from it that I realized what it was. Personally I believe it's just in need of a revamp.
