The concept of claiming Unused Server Names has been one of if not, the most requested feature on Minehut.
What is this?
Basically, implementing this feature will allow users to claim unused server names. If Minehut is to stay long-term, this is a necessary feature. Soon, server names won't be as easy to get, nearly impossible. There's also the issue of really good server names being owned by inactive accounts, or users who don't even utilize Minehut anymore.
How would this work?
There are two main options that have been discussed. I'll explain them both.
Method 1: Requests
The general concept here is having users request to a staff member or support member or whomever, and then they look into it, and approve it. The problem with this one is you would probably have to wait at least a few days and by that point it would be useless.
Method 2: Inactive Servers
Inactive servers are renamed to a random hash of letters and numbers, thus freeing up the server name for someone else to take. This could happen after a certain period of dormancy. Personally I think after no more than a few weeks the server name should be changed automatically.
- You could add some sort of feature to make the dormancy period longer than a few weeks, so like you could set it to a month for some amount of credits.
I think Method 2 should be implemented.
Now, please vote in the poll, and if you down vote this, please reply to the thread with your reasoning.
