Hello, players of McCities as you know I have helped run Runnerboro for over a year and in early August I bought the island of Bob. Islands are supposed to be rare and a wonderful investment for players to make. However, working on Runnerboro and now being the owner of Bob has made me realize that owning an island is 100% great but it's a constant hell. For over three months with bob every day I am constantly being put on hold with my plans for the players of McCities on bob because of a few inactive plot owners, and ugly (sorry lack of better words) wooden/glass plots, and even players who have tried to hold plots to stop my plan and I won't name any names but I have evidence. If given the chance I have a team of players and architects ready to terraform and to make Bob into one of the best islands on the server with some awesome public amenities I won't name here. I want to be able to give back to the community but atm I cant. This needs to be fixed. It is not fair that someone who has invested 20m+ in an island can't even do anything on it because of people who are not even part of the community anymore. In the island guide, it says " If you feel that the property should be removed from the current owner for a rightful reason (ex: inactivity, no improvements to build, etc), contact a staff member instead." So this is already a problem that island owners have dealt with before of inactive plot owners but if a player is on an hour a month I and others have to put my 20m+ investment on hold for the community. This needs to be fixed so islands can actually do stuff without inactive plot owners, bad plots, or plot hoarders can't stop islands. The only option I have left with Bob atm is to take it private and let it sit there with some flowers because there are ugly scattered plots everywhere being held for unknown reasons, and inactive plot owners who are not even part of McCities anymore and have left hoarding the plots and coming on for one second to hold the plots. One inactive plot owner stated they will never sell the plot they own and they were literally on 1 hour the whole month.
