Yeah the server I normally play on had a crash and all of the non-standard Minecraft blocks disappeared upon a backup restore.. so I'm just waiting for this now. :0

That's why I hate mods.

Always try to stay as vanilla as possible apart from maybe modifications that are not permanent to the game. (double exp, etc etc)

I'd be interested in joining. I've never played on a multiplayer server before. Although have put a lot of hours in Minecraft locally.

if there is a survival server, is there any method of removing hunger? i generally play creative to get away from the hunger bar.

This 1000x , The hunger bar is a joke imo.

Hunger is easy to control, plenty of ways to farm ways to get a lot of food

Pumpkins is an easy way to farm food, you can even automate it so you dont even have to chop it down

It's less about easiness to control the hunger, but rather the added annoyance.

if you removed hunger it wouldnt really be a survival server, a more annoyance then hunger is creeper damage, now that is annoying

I vote for survival mode with no plugins (or minimally invasive plugins if you must).

Also, if you are taking tangential suggestions on how to setup the server, I definitely recommend checking out Minecraft Server Manager. It is "A comprehensive start up script for Minecraft and Bukkit servers. Designed by admins, for admins." I have been using it on my CentOS 6 server for a couple of months, and I am very impressed. It definitely makes the job of setting up, backing up, running (daemonized), and updating your server very easy. It should run out-of-the-box on Debian or Ubuntu; I had to make minimal modifications to make it work properly on my CentOS box. PM me if you want my personal installation documentation or other specifics of how I set it up (such as iptables rules and SELinux security policy).

When I used to play minecraft, the server I used was Dinnerbone's (he fixed the original multiplayer nether bug before notch did and notch stole the patch! Now he works for mojang) and he's got bukkit and whatnot on it, locks player areas so that only that player can destroy blocks there, has lockable chests, etc.
It was pretty good actually.
