This article is about the history of World Three, from December 3rd 2011 to January 31st 2012. For other worlds, please follow the links in the main World History article
World Three began with the first complete inventory and map reset. All of the players had to start again, scrabbling for resources and racing to get diamonds.
With this reset, and the recent release of Minecraft 1.0, new map features were included in this world, such as netherwart for potions, enchantments, the End, and the Dragon.
Since Jaycow became an administrator in November, this was his first full month helping out with the admin builds around the map. The PVP Arena, The Church of Jaycow, the Lighthouse and an Aeroplane appeared around the map, usually designated as No-PvP safe zones He successfully petitioned for the introduction of the Bookworm plugin, and created the Intercontinental HardcoreSMP Library for storing the resulting masterpieces, which included a tonne personal player diaries, offensive or funny stories, and a copy of The Raven.
The New Minecraft Republic stayed fairly active during World 3, while assassins and murderer groups began to spring up around the server.
Nebtown joined the server, creating their portal network, a Nether Railway, and the Restaurant at the End of the Universe.
During December we began to get more people trolling the server. In order to keep ensuring that the community remained friendly the first set of Community Moderators were brought in to monitor the in-game and IRC chat and assist in banning spam bots. They were given blue names, to distinguish them from the green names of regular players, the lighter green names of donators.
The Bookworm plugin was installed, and Jaycow created the HCSMP Intercontinental Library to contain the works of fiction, personal journals and resulting gibberish.
January continued well, until gmxgeek found and banned several x-rayers, and one began a DDOS attack on the server, and several people in the IRC channel, including Jaycow. A short time later he stepped down as an administrator.
After the DDOS attacks subsided, Bookworm was removed due to features that could be exploited on the server.
At the end of the month, the World was again to be reset, and the now-traditional End of World Party took place.
