Hey all, dear westeroscrafters,

As you may have noticed, our precious test world is crowded and now a complete mess. Many areas are used to test for everything, sometimes with the permission of mods, sometimes not; there's a new habit to test for whole castles while we only ask for gradient/wall test; as our level of detailing and building and our inventory expand, we're creating more and more magnificent stuff; and the result is that we don't have any more space for anything.
As all plots are currently occupied, we need to create new ones. We could just move stuff nearby, and add a new row, and wait for them to be occupied, and start over, and over, but without resolving our main problem: we need larger plots!! :D

All this is to say that to get to this long-waited progression, we'll need the cooperation of everybody.
First, from now on to the moment everybody gets their larger plots, no permission will be granted to test outside of plots and playground (with the specificities of testing in playground).
Second, every test and creation in testworld, outside of plots (meaning, everywhere except plots: playground, testing areas, misc, etc.), will have to be tagged before Sunday 16th of September. From this date, they may be removed without any other warning. You may argue that the given period is short, but what is asking here as always been asked, and this is no news that you have to tag your builds.
Third, to simplify our work to make this transition faster and easier for everybody, we kindly request you to move ASAP every test and creation that is currently outside of your plot, playground or any allowed testing area (for example, OT and HG testing areas).

We will work as fast as possible to give you all new shiny large plots (i.e. 200x200), but the more you help us, the faster we can do it! :D

After this transition is made, no permission shall be granted to test outside of plots and playground.
Please, excuse us for the inconvenience cause during the...

Hello fellow Westerosi! Arkilstorm and myself and the spare builder or two have labored over the past few months to bring you the glories and plenty of Highgarden! We will be opening the main town for building and recording to gather footage for the V&A exhibit. The build will start on Sunday, May 27th at 3pm GMT (11am EST)

What we are doing is building the houses, gradients for in-place structures and infrastructure construction (roads, ditches, trees) and depending on how quickly this goes, may even start on the sprawl and other villages. Remember, this is one of the most prosperous and wealthy areas in the Seven Kingdoms! So, this means we will be coordinating via discord, if at all possible.

So, be prepared to build cute Reach houses y’all!
